FAQ and Howto (OpenGen + Suite)

Post by lvjtn » 2019-10-06 07:18, Sunday

Q: what is the relation between the .xproto custom proto file and the proto raised by a trigger?

A: by default, the trigger doesn't use the .xproto file, but it can use it: set the parameter of the trigger to 100+x where the 100 means the trigger should use the .xproto and the x means the timeframe in month

this thread is opened for the new questions, the content of the old thread will be added to the faq stored on our website, and the most important ones will be added to Luis’ site too

i'm not sure what you mean about "test" campaign, so i rephrased your question as a faq:

Q: Is there any tutorial campaign for OpenGen?

A: there is a short tutorial campaign available for openak and lxf efiles. see the campaign database

***

Q: Is there any tutorial PBEM scenario for OpenGen?

A: I don't think there would be any tutorial pbem scenarios, but pzliga efile contains several pbem scenarios, maybe Matze Kessler can help you.


(i'm unsure about the second answer, please let me fix if i'm wrong)

Hello, I have a Question referring to the Victory conditions.

The Situation I want to build is:
The Germans are Controlling nearly the whole map. The Allieds have to capture the enemy VHs. After several turns and a break through from the Allieds the Germans will recieve reinforcements. These reinforcements should win the Scenario, if they are able to recapture a certain VH that now is under allied control. The VH is also in the German controlled area in the beginning. So, if I set the VH as normal VH the Germans will win the Scenario in the first turn :dunno Is there still any way to set this Victory condition with the suite?

The problem with this design is how to make that specific VH which axis must capture "unique" :huh

Because there is something you should remember:
*** if all VH required for Axis are initially controlled by the AXIS, the Axis will win as soon as they capture any hex owned by the Allies.

So... what if that VH you want to be captured by reinforces is owned by the Allies initially and the rest of VH are required only for Allied?
:notsure

Yeah, I had this idea too last night. It is even regardless where I let the Germans counterattack because Operation Lüttich were stopped in Mortain and never reached Avranches. So I could let them attack all VHs that I want. And now they are attacking the starting positions and tries there to cut the Allieds off. :lol
