Game question

Postby jjdenver » Sun Mar 14, 2010 12:23 pm

Hi,

I have a few questions about the game. Here are the first few based on the image below.

On the arty unit there is a red "1" on the left side of the artillery attack bar area. What does this mean?

On the armor unit there is a dice symbol on the attack bar and defense bar. The defense bar symbol is used I guess always when it is directly attacked in a hex to fire back at attackers. When is the attack bar dice rolled? Is it rolled when this unit launches a direct attack (every time) or only in some circumstances? Is it possible to use it without launching a direct attack using the CRT?

The bottom image shows an icon I get when I select some artillery units and hover the mouse over an enemey hex. What does this mean? When I hover over other hexes I'm able to fire, but some hexes I get this symbol.

Thanks.

did you update your battlefront manual to the latest version? It is available in the Matrix members area and covers all these subjects.

Briefly, Q1 and 3 refer to the 'no go' area for Naval artillery, in these cases you must not have a friendly unit adjacent to your targeted hex. the Q3 pic shows when you have a friendly too close.

The Direct attack dice is used to determine the outcome of a direct attack only. In the Kharkov game engine direct attacks morphed into becoming part of the close combat routines and were automatically determined.

Thx for the answers.

Where is the members area? I'm logged into forums and don't see it anywhere. I also looked on SSG main site and don't see it there.

Thx

He means the Matrix Games website members area. If you log in there and register Battlefront, you can download the new manual.
