Rising sun starts Dec 7 AM before the PH strike.

Tora starts Dec 7 PM after the PH strike with historical results already in the scenario.

You will note there are two versions of Rising sun but there are actually three scenarios that start Dec 7 AM. Rising Sun a is for PBEM. Rising Sun b is for Allied AI. Campaign 41 is for IJ AI.

Tora is available only in one version, PBEM.

Different versions for different types of play didn't exist before the Matrix Edition. GG made all modes of play work with each scenario.

Matrix reduced AI capability then found on human player could run over it. Instead of putting features back in AI, it devised special AI only scenarios and told people to play with Max Help for AI.

I am out of town next weekend and into the week but can see starting a game first part of August. I assume you want IJ.

3.2.15 is not suitable for a new game. We will need to pick another.

I have a game with Bill and I'm playing IJ so I probably would want to play Allies.

Want to do something really bizarre? How about GG 1.1 x22. No file encryption but the missing vcr function is not a problem. The execution can be recorded as video by DosBox (and its accurate while vcr often is not) and uploaded to YouTube. Example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s8qaIDoYc1U&t=4s

Yea, not insisting on IJ from the beginning I thought maybe I had the wrong Zeke!!!

It seems lots of people don't know about the DosBox recording function. Kind of a buried DosBox function. I discovered it when I played Old Time Baseball a game that's really good for 1995.
