Just got this game yesterday, not bad. Have to figure everything out. Looks great! More real, replay value for sure. Changing things in the game seems limited for now, but a least possible, definitely a keeper.

So far this is want I can change, light tanks into heavy tanks, trucks into tanks, change arty guns. Give more deployment spots, you can put your whole army in the game. More points to spend. Change your troops into vets(this one takes time, you have to do it for each soldier). Change the ai's support into mine, arty, bombers, whatever. Change the friendly ai into my troops. So far with these changes I can win on regular and hard without reinforcements.

First off, making changes to the original game file can cause unwanted effects, like events not being triggered, game freezing, and game crashes. I'm not sure what you mean about changing tanks. The only way I know to change anything is to change it's name tags. For example, to change a USA tank

Name>m4a1_(sherman)_afrikaUnitID1259/UnitID
FullNametanks/usa/m4a1_(sherman)_afrika/FullName

To a tiger tank,

Name>pz_vih_afrikaUnitID>7/UnitID
FullName>tanks/ger/pz_vih_afrika/FullName

You just copy this "pz_vih_afrika" and paste it over the USA tanks. You have to change the country to. Of course in order for your crew to use the tiger they have to have experience, so you have to make them vets.

Leadership-1/Leadership
Driver-1/Driver
Gunlayer-1/Gunlayer
Scout-1/Scout
Accuracy-1/Accuracy
Intelligence-1/Intelligence
Experience-0/Experience
ExperienceBattle-0/ExperienceBattle
ExperienceBonus-0/ExperienceBonus
ExperiencePrevMission-0/ExperiencePrevMission
Rank>corporal/Rank
Levelnovice/Level---just change this to this--Levelveteran/Level

Don't forget your changing a main game file if you mess up and you forget want you changed your sc@#*ed, so backup the mission file before you change anything.

Hey ericgamer38, yea I've tried to change certain skills but the game won't let me. I started by changing just the "novice" or "regular" into "veteran" or "elite" but it didn't seem to work so I added experience too. Then when I started helping you I just changed everybody into vets and it worked. I mainly wanted to get my "Tigers" working so I settled for that.

Changing the support is tricky! I got it to work by trial and error, a lot of error! I still don't know what some of the #s I change represent. Half the time it won't work. Your better off giving yourself a bunch of tigers. I'll go over it again and post you later about that, because it involves messing with two files.

Yea, I've played "Officers". There's stuff right here on CheatHappens that can tell you what to do. It's simple. The game is fun.
