Replacements

It seems a bit hit and miss as to when you get a chance to buy replacement chits to bring your existing forces up to scratch.

I have just done a run through 6 turns. Maintenance every even turn, income every turn, but no chance to buy replacements, or new units........

In an earlier game I had the chance much earlier to buy replacement chits and bought too many, I didn't have enough RP for my second maintenance payment and lost a unit :(

When is this phase meant to occur?

It looks like it is bugged.....

I have tried a new game as Patriot and in turn three I can buy units and replacements, I dont see any issue here.

I have just run through to turn 3 again and this time I did get the buying phase. I think it is bugged though, it doesn't always happen......

Should we get it every odd numbered turn (apart from turn 1) ?

Yes, from turn 3 onward

OK, have just played through to turn 3 again. When I played through earlier and it worked I had closed the game and then relaunched it. Turn 3 I had the phase.

I quit that game, but didn't close the main menu, just started a fresh game. This time at turn 3 I didn't get the phase, it went straight from income to movement.

Will email you the save

Interesting and good way of testing.

After I sent you that Patriot save where I was getting the replacements phase I started a new game as the Royalists. I am getting replacement phase every odd turn. Looks like the problem is purely with the Patriots.

Maybe related with the card that they play, thanks

Playing the new version.

When Royalists I am getting the chance to buy replacements every turn now. (It looks like the Royalist AI is not buying anything, new units, or replacements for missing elements).

When I have played as the Patriots I am still not getting the replacements phase, I have now played through until turn 6, nothing. I did play that Uprising card at the start that says that the buying phase is skipped for the first two times, but you have to play that card......

Ok, we have been strugling with this damned bug for days and it remains.

And makes the game unplayable

Perhaps something to do with the uprising card........?

Yes, this bug and the hanging during the siege bug make the game unplayable at the moment :(

I have played until turn 3 and Patriots can purchase units.

Im not sure you have the correct scenario version, its weird

I did uninstall before downloading the new version.

I will try again :)

Ok, have uninstalled again and then reinstalled.

First try as Patriots I get purchases and replacements on turn 3. Started the game again and again replacements happened on turn 3 and then every turn.

Perhaps the uninstall didn't work properly before, or a dodgy download?.........

It would be good to hear if other people are having the same issue :)

I am getting purchases and replacements.

Is it WAD that the Royalists can buy every turn?

I think both sides should be able to buy replacements every turn, including turn 1.

Its WAD (changed) the Royalist have a lot of money but few units. The Patriots have a lot of units but few money so after turn 3 will be more balanced, imo.
