to say again, this is not a finished mod. the WW2 map has been dramatically changed and will definitely have bugs and be prone to crashing. dozens of new territories have been added into the Metagame. I've also found a way to integrate a lot of minor countries by using generic 'star' generals. This way Yugoslavia, Sweden, Spain, Philippines, and Greece can be included in WW2 without having them controlled by a major Axis or Allied nation. all of the minor nations default in their allegiance to the Allies for the time being. In later versions of the game I will investigate the possibility of making them a third, 'neutral' team. but I'd like to change the AI first so that they don't take aggressive action against their neighbors first.

I've added Belgian defensive armies to the Netherlands faction in WW2.

I know that there are some missing skins for Finland and the Netherlands. since those two factions were donated to us by Cpt. Kramer I've been making adjustments to integrate them more readily with our new work. (he kept most of his skins in a completely separate folder and I would rather bring them in line with our coding practices than try to make the installation process even more complicated than it already is.

eventually, players should expect a completely revised US Marines. I plan on making them more like the German Infantry and Panzergrenadier divisions. having US players capable of spamming flame tanks from the get-go seemed like too much of an advantage.

we still have a lot of changes to make... and nothing has been done about the SP campaigns at this time.

I'm in the middle of cleaning up excess files and converting it into a download.

I'm expecting to have it ready by the end of this upcoming week.

How do we include log entries? I had another exception access violation while playing rts mode in WWII Mode and the error message as before mentions it.

when the game crashes to desktop it will give you a message box with the details.

the game logs are not located in the Data folder-- but in a separate folder:
Axis & Allies\Logs

you'll want to find a log entry that ends with "error". when the game crashes copy down the error report exception in a text document. it will be something like "E0677363" when you open up the log paste that text sample into the find menu box. it'll take you straight to the error that caused the game to crash. sometimes the game will describe why the game crashed-- but many times it will not.

Well I'm trying to test the new release. Maybe I will submit a long feedback later. Great update despite there're several old and new bugs. I'm just tried a game with Italy so far.

Anyway my feedback (bug report actually) will be long but I'm trying to make the mod better not criticize ok? Also my feedback will focus on units and buildings not WW2 nor campaign.

For now however I have some suggestions

- The supper tanks were rare things so it would be better if you set them as command tank (CO) and have other units as support. For example the Maus regiment would be something like: Maus as command tank, 4 King Tiger tanks in front and flanks (super tank regiment!), 1 infantry halftrack (represent the support infantry, technician...) and 1 AA halftrack (something like Maus should be well protected). That way those super tank would be more realistic, less overpower yet still pack a BIG punch.

- The Ariete regiment: The Ariete was an armored division. I think it would be better if they have Ariete infantry halftrack (new halftrack which spawn new Ariete infantry regiment) in place of the Ariete Infantry. Also it would be better to replace the Semovente 75/18 with something better like 90/53 (tank destroyer not artillery version).

that's fine. I got a list of about 60 things that needed correction from Colonel Carter last spring-- and I've tried to address/fix most of them.

if you know how to include log entries that would be helpful. if not, any feedback is appreciated. the mod is so big that there's no way I could properly test it by myself. I expect there will be problems.

hmm, I think I can get behind the Supertank with infantry halftracks up front and some AA halftracks in the supporting role.

I'll look into the Ariete stuff some more. I've considered making a different armored division where Italy can recruit elite troops like the Ariete or the Centauro II style regiments (the Centauro II was supposed to have used German gear against the Soviets)

the Centauro II might have a regiment of Panzer IV and V with some flanking halftracks that spawn blackshirt infantry. Italian tanks are fairly weak in the big scheme of things-- so giving them some halftrack infantry spawns as support could help even the odds a bit (this is what I had to do with Japanese heavy tanks, otherwise they would get steamrolled by everybody else)

I would like to completely overhaul how the regiments are priced out. I experimented with a standard formula based on tank weights that looked promising--- but some of the heavier tanks were costing over $400 per regiment! according to the current formula a single Maus tank would cost $376. throw in the infantry and AA mechs and the regiment would cost $598 to purchase. that would definitely keep them a rare thing to see in combat.

For the super tank regiment, the reason why I suggest to throw in some tank support was because it would be ugly for the regiment to have only the CO (the super tank itself) left after 5 minutes fighting and the unscratched super tank route shamefully! Also It's ok for them to be expensive. Anyway it's ok if you're going to make an one tank regiment

Okay played a Custom game on The Burning of Moscow Scenario as an observer to watch the AI.

The following bugs I found:

Soviet BA-64 Cars are labeled as Wz.29 Ursus.

The German Panzer IVD has its main gun separate from the model and float in the air in the front of it after it fires its gun.

The game suddenly ended after sometime when the game crashed to desktop and I got an error message, something about an Exception Access Violation I think.

Also I saw a lot of Soviet T-60 Tanks are these the T-70 mislabeled or is it the actual T-60 Light Tank?

Overall, very few bugs. The crashing to desktop thing was odd though.

The reason the BA-64 is called Wz.29 is the makers of the game did that, heck most of the units in the game have the wrong name or wrong weapon. One example are the russian ships in the vanilla version: they never existed nor looked liked that on the blueprints.

the T-60 and T-70 are different units. I'll post a screen shot for clarification.

I'll get those other two issues addressed later today. normally that's from the game expecting to find something and not being able to find it. I had that problem with the JPN Paratrooper Marines (for some reason para units can't be allowed to have melee attacks. I was pretty sure I got rid of all of those types of units, though)

An easy fix for the panzer is to delete the recoil .kf in its model folder (Data/Units/Ger/...). Some of the models have this issue. When I did the models I used the original bones and they have to be perfectly lined up or this happens.

Which file would that be? There is two one named GERTankLightRecoi1.kf and GERTankCORecoi1.kf

This is under GERTankCO.
