Hey Cantona,

Conversion is not necessary actually. The game works in AOD too. The problem was that the campaign folder, and .cgn file had names that did not match. Once I changed the folder name (removed a space and dash) the game runs fine. Looks great by the way!

Ok, good! Keep on playing.

1: both in AoD and AoC in you are in the convoy/war screen and hit a flag the game crash to desktop.

2: in the Breakthrought version the german tanks strike at two hex range: it is intended or is a mistake?

3: in the breakthrought version 5 games in a row, France dow Belgium in december: it' s intended?

1. strange, i will check.

2. i will not update breakthrough version anymore but not intended.

3. this happens to me also, not intended, no script from me, i Believe it is the Engine that causes this.

1: i make same test: it happen only in the first turn of a new game: from the turn 2 all fine. the error test is: segment failure

3: it is here even in the AoC version: France Dow Belgium at dicember. the strange is that in AoC declar war but not make attacks against Belgium unit after the first turn.

i think that if you cannot modify the AI script (i think is a script for the WWI scenario: if it is december and Belgio is neutral dow...) you must free the fall gelb chain or we never see....

4: there is same units in the german force pool that have stats very different from standard: is intended? for example light tank is better than tank group, the heavy bomber cost 150 pp, and so on...

5: i think that in the Italy economy lack the found received for plunder abissinia: as it is, with UK ai dow in april (and in multiplayer is even worst: i see no reason to dow with both UK and France asap), he don't have the money to put a full force more than the 2 army 1 HQ and the tank group in Libya....: maybe at the turn after the dow receive money as a free bonus if is a allied power that make the dow?

6: i don' t have find the canada convoy

Hi Cantona66

On 3, I wonder if there is an Allied AI Offensive script which could be causing this?

i think this is the script:

#NAME= France - Lille -> Brussels (Belgium Neutral)


#FLAG= 1

#TYPE= 2




;Set global variable condition to always trigger (dummy value)

#GV= 1[1,100]

;Set link value to always trigger (dummy value)

#LINK= 0[0]

#SIZE= 3,20

;length of zero means it will take immediate effect



#RANGE= 10



#DATE= 1939/12/01

;Set top priority for this plan and use any necessary units from other plans


;Set friendly positions:

;1st Line - Lille


;Set variable conditions:

;1st Line - France politically aligned with Allies and not surrendered

;2nd Line - Belgium politically aligned with Allies and not active

#VARIABLE_CONDITION= 2 [2] [100] [0]

#VARIABLE_CONDITION= 13 [0] [0] [0]

;Set tactical conditions:

;1st Line - Paris not tactically threatened


;Set dummy activate position (no units at position 0,0)

#ACTIVATE_POSITION= 0,4 [0,0] [0,0] [0]

;Set dummy cancel position (single neutral unit at position 0,0). This is not possible as no

;unit can occupy tile 0,0 so event will not be cancelled due to #CANCEL_POSITION

#CANCEL_POSITION= 0,4 [0,0] [1,1] [0]


i think also that changing the trigger from 25 to maybe 5 make this a variable, now with a 25% every turn after 01/12/39 is sure

3. have changed the offensive scripts trigger to 5%

4. Yes it is intended, check my explanation in the beginning of the thread

5. Abyssinia was already defeated (1936) when the mod starts

6. Yes, in this version Canada is part of UK so convoy is not possible

I want Italy weak, but if you use all Italian money to strengthen North africa and invest in industrian research and maybe send a few german troops Before 1941, you may have a chance for some time at least. But i have incerased the MPP income for Italian decision regarding Jimma mines in Abyssinia.

AoD version

1) Germany unit can go in Romania (active) only by operational or force marce and cannot make normal move when inside (is the same for romania unit in german territoty)

2) the "zeppelin" heavy bomber can't make recon: need a target to fly

3) the lack of sigfrido line garrison don' t have effect on france entry level (when france is at 89 for sure i don't known before)

4) there is samething of strange in the USA entry: no seelowe at decembre 40 is a 65 when URSS is a 42

5) i think we need more G unit (or with a lower cost)

AoD version

italy: against the Artificial Idiot is not a trouble but against a real player i think that we need a reason for UK-France for not Dow Italy before historical entry and now i don't see nothing and at industrial level 2 production 2 the normal income for italy replace 1 army step nothing more

Hello Quiritus and thanks for your findings/poposals, here comes some answers.

1. Romania needs to DOW on a country for example Egypt for Germany to be able to move freely in Romania

2. Not checked yet

3. Script it ok, should work but the trigger is 75% so it does not fire all the time

4. US usually enters fall 41 for me when playing somewhat historical and no Sealion

5. I add 1 or 2 garrison units and lower the cost a bit, but the tip is to use allies units to garrison.

6. I designed this mod for my personal interest and has put it into the repository since a few people seems to like it, i usually plays like Axis against Allied AI hence the Axis AI is not good at all, but i have added 2 new Italian unit scripts in Libya.

Thanks again! :-)

yes i see now. but you keep the USA URSS and minor entry effecy, and must be done for every minor came in war by operation (yugoslavia for exemple)

3. Script it ok, should work but the trigger is 75% so it does not fire all the time
mmmh in my last game france stay neutral at 89 after poland. i want france in war so i free every G hex. stay at 89 from steptember 39 to may.

5. I add 1 or 2 garrison units and lower the cost a bit, but the tip is to use allies units to garrison.
i use every minor- romania units and buy same for garrison duty but for norvay i have to do with para-SF and for france with armored trains...

6. I designed this mod for my personal interest and has put it into the repository since a few people seems to like it, i usually plays like Axis against Allied AI hence the Axis AI is not good at all, but i have added 2 new Italian unit scripts in Libya.

against the AI you can leave africa as it is: i am in jerusalem by12/40 in every game i played without land german unit only i fighter and two stuka.

i like the old map with africa more than the last and you have to do samething for convoy war, now is without use, but thanks to you for a huge work
