• Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

This thread is more than 5 months old.

It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

We're happy to announce that after weeks of hard work we finally have the manual of Darkest Hour ready!

Credits for this manual should go entirely to 2 people:
novapaddy - design, editor, adaptation of HoI Manual text to DH and many other tasks I even don't know about
^_AC_^ - editor and author of most of the new text


Please post here any notes you have, errors found or suggestions for improvements.

Yours,
Darkest Hour Team

Question re. p.104. This states that an Old Guard officer reduces the experience gain of the units under his command. Has this changed in DH? - because I recall an old Arma thread where someone claimed this was a myth - and that only the leader was penalised ....

Correct. Only leaders gain experience at 1/3 rate. Units under Old Guard leaders have no experience gain penalty.

On page 52, left side, some text appears to be missing:

...this maximum level can be modified by.

I think it should be policy sliders and maybe minister effects.

I really have to praise the great visual design to this. The font is easy to read and the pictures ensure looking at the text doesn't get too boring. This is what a manual should look like.

Cheers novapaddy!

I'd just like to say THANKS for all of your responses to the manual.

Cally: What you say is nice to hear, as these were the exact reasons why the manual was done this way.

@ novapaddy ,^_AC_^ -

Terrific work. It looks very professional, and I feel that you have opened up DH (Not for me sadly, wish this manual existed when hoi2 first came out lol) to a host of first time players who will really benefit from all your hard work.
