Re: Orel/Briansk--Help!

For some reason, I've not been able to get full screen to work. However, it hasn't bothered me until now. In the Baku scenario, I can't get the screen to scroll all the way to the right, nor, it appears, all the way to the south. It seems that some of the area of play I just can't see. I also can't,...

Re: Orel/Briansk--Help!

Did you mean to say 80% of the time it WON'T be possible because of rain? Because that tracks with my experience. Usually turns one and two are relatively clear. After that, the entire route up the rail line is about 80% rainy. Then it rains solid around Saratov from turn 5 on.

Re: Orel/Briansk--Help!

The weather is just relentlessly rain. Wherever I need to attack, it rains. This about 10 playthroughs so far.

This is cynical of me, but I have to believe that the playthroughs I downloaded, people are just saving and reloading until they get a turn with no rain.

Re: Orel/Briansk--Help!

Another one I guess I can't figure out. You are overwhelmingly outnumbered. All the Russians have to do is stack up a wall of units against your advance, which they can do, endlessly. You can win any individual battle, but you inevitably lose the war of attrition. And then the rain just fucks you in...

rain rain rain rain rain rain rain rain rain rain rain rain rain rain rain rain

So, the way to win this one is to save and reload 50x per turn to ensure thatyou don't have rain every single turn?

Re: Orel/Briansk--Help!

Is rain every single turn in your area of operations normal for this scenario?

Re: Orel/Briansk--Help!

You can't really encircle much in this one, can you. Just push forward and blast 'em?

Re: Orel/Briansk--Help!

Jesus, I thought the last one was hard, Kuibyshev is 10x worse! I look at the map and despair. Outnumbered at least 5:1, it looks completely hopeless!
