When I open Abattlemap by clicking on a map link in a forum game, and I open the battlemap to the correct edition, what I get is the starting position, not the current position. Can anyone clarify what I’m doing wrong?
You need to go to File/Open and open the file you downloaded, I think, if I understand you correctly.
Where is File/Open?
Builder_Chris is right, you won’t be able to hold africa without US assistance. if you left all of your african forces down there, you could slow them down for a couple of rounds though
if the US is going for all out Pacific, i would still try to convince them to use whatever they have in western usa in the african theatre to help. also, i always build an IC in india if japan can’t take it feasibly turn j2. this leaves you the option of sending tanks to africa once Japan is booted off China
A good question is why Manchuria and Kiangsu have a japanese marker. It would be easier having only a Chinese marker, I cannot convince my friends to put the jap control marker on them :-P. That jap marker printed on map only serves to one purpose: confuse
You are correct,
i agree the game is great. i’m not looking for a glorified micro-machines set. but when i bought AAR a couple yrs ago. I had to take some of my acs and hold them over a burner to soften the plastic enough to bend it straight……NO B*ST!!!
there are all kinds of deformed parts in there that I had to fix. AA50 hasn’t been that bad. but pretty close. i’ve had to pull my hobby knife far more than i’d like.
do you want to play with a b-17 that came out of the box…out of the plastic bag…with wings that were f*****g bent in neary half.
I was just reading the end of this thread: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/341599
…and it got me thinking. There a lot of people that would like to see an even amount of attention to both the theaters of war, and I realize that the NOs are now an effort along with VCs to encourage such play… Im just wondering, wouldnt VPs be a great way to force the allies to spread their efforts in multiple directions instead of the standard KGF?
You could do VPs for the axis or allies as a group, OR you could do it as individuals - so if japan gets too large (left alone), it can win the game by itself so to speak… same goes for japan, they cant focus ALL their efforts on the charge to moscow, as the usa could steal all the VPs from the pacific…
Just thinking out loud mostly
