Background:
Session one of this game on the EIR mod was rather uneventful, so there is no need to go into it in depth, except perhaps to note that the game opened with a rather hostile move from the Soviet Union, denying trade to Germany.

I would like to provide details of that build order as I did in the other EIR AAR I am writing, where I also play Germany, but on a much more historical path, so this time I chose to be different. That AAR can be found here: Goering's Delay: An East is Red Mod multiplayer AAR.

And no I am not a Germany hog, Koontz is Germany in the Sunday game, but since most people are not so familiar with the EIR setup, in this game and the other I thought it wise to play Germany for the sake of the game, and also, to make use of the options, so this time it is early war, and an immediate attack on France.

Since I am Germany I had decided that I was going to test the limits of the counter-historical possibilities available in the EIR mod. The mod is programmed to allow for alternate scenarios and different beginnings to WWII. This time out I thought I would pursue the option of attacking West early, and built according to that agenda.

Session II Game Summary:

Players:

Cueball, Germany and the Axis
Predator, UK/France, USA and the Commonwealth
Koontz, the Soviet Union
ISD, Japan


Unscheduled Game Engine Events: Koontz left early, Soviet Union was ghosted by Predator for the last 2 hours
Average game speed: Below Normal
Session Length: 5 hours
Start date: February 18th, 1938
End date: December 5th, 1938

For a straighforward copy over zip version go here: Goerings Delay -- NZQS -- 1.3b.rar

The Mod can also be set up with the Jones Generic Mod Enabler and has worked fine in that mode in my tests. This version has everything in it, 1.3beta, JSGME and the East is Red patch, and can be installed straight to your Armageddon 1.2 (ZBLV) folder without disrupting vanilla at all. It has the 1.3beta exe update and JGSME Mod system right in it. Just unzip to your main doomsday folder, copy the contents of the folder, then past into the main folder, then enable the mod using the JSGME system. Once you execute the JSGME it is pretty self-explanatory: EIR NZQS --ARMA 1.3beta complete 1.3b

Small patch from XTPS or NZQS 1.2 to NZQS 1.3b: Goering EIR -- Patch 1.3b

It would be a dangerous folly for the British people to underrate the enduring position in world history which Mussolini will hold; or the amazing qualities of courage, comprehension, self-control and perseverance which he exemplifies.
