Re: No more Melee Weapons?

no bayonet charges is actually quite eurocentric, which isn't surprising given this game's roots (iirc, version 1 had no asiatic countries or wars at all). The Chinese battlefield, especially in occupied areas, involved melee weaponry far more than bullets, purely because the chinese were underequip...

Re: No more Melee Weapons?

There's also the japanese HQ section, where the commander is said to have a sword.

If they're out of ammo, they should still charge the opponent, though they should get suppressed a lot easier.

After all, there's no point to have a melee weapon if you're not gonna use it when you're out of ammo.

No more Melee Weapons?

I seem to recall in version 1 or 2, soldiers could be killed by a bayonette. However, I just set some elite troops to 0 ammo (but still with weapon_rifle) for two countries and pitted them against each other. Neither seemed particularly inclined to even touch each other, much less bust out melee wea...

Re: Is the end of the war hard-coded?

I have that, but it didn't work. I didn't think it'd work since there are no unit data for the chinese (or japanese) in 1945 Q3, but the game generated infantry and artillery for those years anyway. The only thing missing was the tanks. Evidence seems to point to that the end cannot be modified, whi...

Is the end of the war hard-coded?

I've been trying to add the Soviet Invasion of Manchuria to the Russian Campaign, but it seems like no matter what the Soviet Campaign always ends at V-E day.

Is there a way to change this?

Recovering a copy?

I bought this.... a long time ago? might have been 2002-2003 or earlier (the version was 2.0, and I bought the six-game pack including Revolution (yeah, the circular tetris.. thing). If i recall correctly, the purchase included a free lifetime upgrade promise of some sort, and I did receive 3.0 and ...

Well, then there's the human pride issue, we don't like to get slaughtered, and we certainly don't like a human player slaughtering their own guys for another race of aliens. Maybe it should just be "defend own home planet."

well, actually i think it would be somewhere around a neutron bomb since you can bomb a city repeately without actually destroying the thing, but all life will be extinguished.

yeah, except one plec up your rear and and you're finished, not to mention you can't dodge any missiles, which real human players would have no trouble hitting you with. lol. that's why turrets are expendable in most missions.

once in 3.0 I saw a anaconda select 15 plecs at the same time. I was amazed at this blatant form of cheating, lol, but you really can't stop the comp from cheating right?"

lol, wow, you guys are good. My roll of honor is kinda bogus since I always hack my memory to test ships, and I'm not good at flying so they'd all get killed. so its some bogus "1000 missions, 1000 wins, no medals." How do you reset your roll of honor (other than deleting it, cuz i don't have the in...
