Also, it would be interesting to see how many surrenders a particular unit caused/received. On occasion, later in a battle, a unit can sweep out and contact injured/demoralized enemies, and they will surrender. This is just as valuable as killing the enemy. It would be good to be able to see this st...

I don't know if this has already been suggested, but I would like the ability to force armor and field guns to fire where I direct. Too often, I will manually targete my guns, only to find them turning away and selecting another target on their own. Incredibly, I have had field guns fixate on some p...

Honestly, IMO it would be difficult to best Sid Meier's "Gettysburg!" game. For 19th century, regiment/brigade level combat, including command and control, fatigue, morale and maneuver considerations, that game is top notch. You can move into columns, lines, wheel, hold fire until ordered, you can h...

I actually had a battle with no small unit shooting. I was armor-heavy, and raced up the left flank. I did set down artillery to suppress a field gun I observed, and was able to take the objective without otherwise firing a shot. There were no casualties on either side. In another battle, in the ope...

Interesting Kills

As everyone knows, the unit status page gives one the ability to see how each unit/man performed; how much ammo is left, whether he is wounded, and for what kills he is credited. It also lists cause of death. I have seen some interesting causes of death, which I think really testify to the complexit...

Yes, this was definitely a tank main gun. Also, I believe bazookas/panzeraust/PIATs can cause friendly fire. On another note, it would be nice to be able to select a variable size for the artillery grouping. In other words, it would be good to be able to drop shells across a larger area. The trade-o...

Three suggestions (but understand, they are only humble suggestions; I am in awe of this game as it stands today. Very well done, sir!) #1 I would like to be able to discern which casualties were caused by friendly-fire (and who did it), when it occurs. For example, I had some infantry moving out ah...

Thanks

Thanks for the prompt responses, both. Sean, I will send an email directly.

This is one of the absolutely best games I have ever played. Thank you for it.

Ugh! Big problem. Help?

I have been playing this game nearly daily since I purchased it (early June, I think), but as of two days ago, something got bent up, but good... Game opens properly, and I can select/create a campaign or single game. However, upon being given my objective, the game starts to chug, and by the time I...

Curious (Valorous?) Battlefield Behavior

I presume these are a quirk of the AI, and I am not complaining. I am just wondering if anyone has any theories as to what caused the two following incidents to happen. 1) In a defensive mission, a (German) Panzer rolled into a killing zone I had set up, with a field gun and a PIAT in opposite enfil...

Re: Buglet

I have just had exactly this problem. In campaign mode, I just finished a battle, and saved the campaign. I closed out the game, and when I came back to continue, I am stuck in the after-action screen, where you can scroll around the map and see all the units/casualties. I can't make the campaign pr...

Impressions from a new player

Hello. I just purchased this game this week (v 3.99t), and I'm having trouble tearing myself away from the computer, now! I have a few questions and observations; I hope the veterans here can offer some comments: 1) Fighting in a campaign in France, as British, I had a Sherman tank that refused to m...
