I think this is gonna be a tricky one again.

Thanks C...yes...i little simpler than Waterloo, not as backstabbing as Chicago, and not as "start heavy as PH"...but it will be a challenge....i'd be interested to see how some speed games go on this one and whether it would be suitable.

The art on the Halloween map was superb.

The Sydney 2000 map just had too much going on visually. It was hard for me to get a grip on what was happening everywhere. When that happens, I fear for quite a few other players.


I don't remember show ducks. Was that a map of a carnival game where you shoot ducks on different levels?

I don't think it was too much, it just wasn't presented for easy interpretation.

As for Show Duck, yes that was it. I thought that would've been an easy-peasy one.

But anyway back to topic...

congrats mate, i would like to see you concentrate on a map which is more geared towards graphics rather than interesting gameplay!

Yes natewolfman....there will later be another two maps in the trilogy on tobruk....the desert rats, and el amein....they all have to do with the attempted conquering of tobruk by the rommel, the successful conquer of tobruk by rommel and the pushback from el amein by the Allies to re-capture Tobruk.

Another wonderful map cairnswk!!!

Found some problems with the XML though:

Many of the 21st Panzers are in the wrong place, or have the wrong names and connections - roll over in BOB and you'll easily see.

This is only a problem for the small map (which I always use - yes even for Waterloo)


EDIT: investigating further, just a few of the small map co-ordinates need swapping around:


F is currently at C
G is at D
C is at E
D is at F
E is at G

small map only

Benjikat, thanks for that pickup.

I have PMed lackattack the new xml file.
I had originally set the coordinates and the graphics letters were in a different place.
Because this is a time-consuming job opening javascipt and going through each tert, i got lazy and forgot to check them again after swapping the graphic letters. :-(
