In anticipation of the re release of Lost Victories I am considering some changes to make the branches more accessable if necessary. From the feedback I have gotten or seen it appears that very few players go into the Crimea or fight the linkup battles around Kiev. I need to verify if this is really true or not

How many of you played the awards ceremony "In the Name of the Fuhrer" scenario where General von Kleist gives the Knights Cross to Vebber and you are able to choose to go either to Kiev or the Crimea?

If you did play it, which did you choose to go, to The Crimea or Kiev?

How many played the battles in Nikolaev and chose the paradrop?
"Exploitation-By Our Own Krupp Guns"

How many played the scenario where Vebber follows The SS unit under Panzermeyer and Michael Wittman at Preobrezhenka and run into the armored train."The General Died Today"

How many of you who cross the Dnieper and fight to hold the bridgehead "Budennyy is Waiting for You-The River and the Rain=Setting the Trap-Springing the Trap" fight the battle to capture Lubny from the Komsomols and Militia?"A Desparate Defense"

If you fought the battles to capture and hold the bridge at Gornostaipol, "Bingler's Bridge'-The Long Crossing-Holding On"did you play any of the following battles in the next set of questions

How may have played the scenario where Wartmann's column fights its way through to meet Vebber north of Lubny and close the Kiev pocket?"White Verey Lights, Germans Here". Did you play on a large or small map?

How many have fought the battle to save General von Schweppenburg?"Surprise for Geyr"

How may fought the encirclement battles "Fighting Back to Back-No Escape-Vebber Gets the Dirty Work"

How many took part in stopping General Potapov from escaping the Kiev pocket. "Potapov at Bay"

How many fought the huge breakout attempt at Kiev where the field was already littered with the wreckage of prior attempts to breakout?"Slaughter on the Steppes"

If you fought any of the above battles, did you also fight to capture the city of Kiev itself "Kiev, the Fateful City"

Your answers will be very helpful in determining if the results need some fine tuning to make more of the MC playable

Brent, I've got save files for the 1st 38 battles or so, but danged if I can remember just what was in each. It might help me to help you if you put in the name of each of those battles so I could find them. If it's not too much trouble, that is.

Thanks for the titles, Brent. I'll check tonight, but from first glance, I have not played most of the above.

Hello Grenadier

Well, I did select Kiev during that ceremony..and kept a save so I could later go to Krimea without the need to play from the beginning. BUT I ended my campaign in Sevastopol.... :)

I still have about 15 saves, being lazy by nature I looked at the .sav files, most of them have node info at the end...I assume it is there if the scenario maker had added it on map?

So, there are the scenarios I played, in chronological order but there was battles between some of them, I didn't do backup saves every time.

Node 15, scen 48
N 53, S 149
Unknown node, Bridgehead at Dniepr?
N 26, S 78
N 28, S 82
N 39, S 108
N 40, S 112
2 unknowns, Izyum bridge?
N 75, S 216
unk. Fort Stalin
unk, Balaclava
N 78A, S228, final battle.

Hope this helps


ps. if you want I can load them into game and take a better look.


Oh God give Me strength to accept those things I cannot change with a firearm!
