RE: Japan '45 and '46 updates released
So, the erroneously placed obstacle in '46 is intentional? I don't have my computer so I can't check it.

Please tell me which scenario and I’ll check now and update if necessary.

We’ve tried to fix everything reported but may miss some things in these updates.

Thanks.

RE: Japan '45 and '46 updates released
Well I have good news and bad news!

The good news is the the following campaign scenarios had been corrected for the obstacle/bunker issue;

#46_0301_01_Coronet-Campaign
#46_0301_02_Coronet-Campaign-VAR1

The bad news is that the following had not;

#46_0301_03_Coronet-Campaign-VAR2
#46_0301_04_Coronet-Campaign-VAR3
#46_0301_15_Coronet-Campaign-March
#46_0301_16_Coronet-Campaign-March-VAR1

If you have already got the patch for Japan '46, please go and download it again and apply it as the corrected files are now included.

You can get the Japan '46 1.01 patch directly from here; Revised 1.01 Patch

The whipping boy has been whipped!!

RE: Japan '45 and '46 updates released
Rich,

These are unit values. In your example the soft Attack value was increased from 9 to 10.

This will impact all games, pbem or vs the AI

RE: Japan '45 and '46 updates released
The announcement email mentioned that Japan '46 was selling at about half the rate of Japan '45.  Any thoughts as to why?

I can think of a few. It appears to be a very similar title to Japan ‘45 (it’s not). It came out 6 months after the first Japan title, which is a lot closer than normal. And, one that I have heard a few times, is that people had not realised they were different titles. Maybe we should have called them Olympic and Coronet to differentiate them more.

Japan ‘46 is a really interesting title and worth a look.
