support of Tunis from North Africa

Postby wolf1234 » 27 Dec 2019, 18:10

I supported a fleet in Tunis by an army in North Africa. My fleet was in Western Mediterranean. Support failed.
Later I looked up order solver and it says that North Africa can't support Tunis. Is it a bug?

There is no bug, so I'm guessing you either got the syntax for the orders wrong somehow and/or you were bounced by another power and didn't notice it.

Cut and paste the order history into a post if you want help sorting out what happened.

This is from the order solver: "North Africa SUPPORT Tunis to HOLD -> Cannot convoy a fleet".
Is not it a bug?

@wolf1234: Please supply your whole order. The information is unclear what situation is. You indicate that you supported a fleet in Tunis but also that your fleet was in West Med. The Order Solver you supplied shows that a convoy may have been attempted.

N. Africa can support Tunis. (ie, it can support a Fleet in West Med moving to Tunis or it can support a unit in Tunis to Hold.)
