PostPosted: Sun Dec 24, 2017 5:43 am Post subject: Questions about XXX Corps Reply with quote

(I tried my best to figure these things out, but couldn't in the end Sad)

1. I'm not exactly certain about how XXX Corps advance. According to CC2FAQ by The Other Dave, it takes the following amount of time for XXX Corps to progress:

Son to Schijndel: 2 hours
Schijndel to Veghel: 1 hour
Veghel to Groesbeek: 6 hours
Groesbeek to Nijmegen: 1 hour
Nijmegen to the Island: 1 hour
The Island to the victory: 4 hours

The data seems to be true. Now Son operation starts at 1200 and was ended at 1700 by using one 1-hour truce (2+1+2=5), but XXX Corps arrived in Nijmegen City at 1600 next day, which means the troops were in Son at 0600 that day. I'm guessing XXX Corps advances starting from the 18th with the time range 0600-2000, but I'm not entirely sure.

2. I wanted to change the initial points XXX Corps receives, so I edited xxxreq in the campaign folder so that the 'points at start' is 50 and 10 respectively. I used the previous save file at Nijmegen North Bridge, but the Island still gives me 40 points. Is it just because I used a save file or do I have to change other things as well?

Also, I'm not sure why there are two cells of 'points at start'.

[Edited] I still don't know why there are two values, but at least the first one did work in The Island operation by starting a new game from the start.

[Edited2] Found out that the second value is the ponits given when XXX Corps advances to the next map, say to The Tulip Fields to The Island.

3. I wanted to change the initial tanks of the XXX Corps, but I don't know how to do this. In fact, I can't find a way to change the initial units of any map at all. Unlike the files in the base folder, it's quite hard for me to grasp other files. Say, what should I do to change the Sherman V tank of XXX Corps to something else? Can I also change the initial units of other maps in general?

It'd be also nice to know a site or a guide pinpointing the details of the data; all the sites I've searched for are closed now.

Thanks for the info, Mafi! I think I can now change the initial units, but the first question still remains mystery to me. I really don't think XXX Corps advances on the first day, though.
