ATTENTION ALL NEW PLAYERS:
The Prestige Bug
There is a bug in v1.1 of Pacific General that has never been fixed by a 3rd-party patch, and it occurs when playing ANY campaign game. When you've finished one scenario and are ready to move on to the next scenario in the campaign, the game will ask you if you wish to save at this time... DO NOT SAVE WHEN IT ASKS YOU TO DO THIS!!! Saving at this point in the game will DOUBLE the prestige that you are intended to receive for winning the campaign scenario -- if/when you EVER reload that saved game. In theory, you can continually reload the game and obtain an infinite amount of prestige before resuming the next scenario in the campaign.
Campaigns are intended to be challenging without using any type of "cheats", but this undocumented feature may sneak up on unsuspecting people who are looking for a challenge without hand-outs.
If you wish to play the this campaign as it is intended to be played, and wish to be challenged using only the normal amount of prestige, please follow these save-game tips:
1) NEVER save the game when it asks you to save between scenarios!
2) If you do not wish to deploy immediately when ending a scenario, please remember to save your game right before you take that last objective hex (or destroy the last unit) in a given scenario... this way you can pick up the game later, and go straight through the deployment screen
3) Simply play straight from one scenario, through the deployment screen and into the next scenario without saving. If you save AFTER the deployment screen at the beginning of the 1st turn of the next scenario, this is also a safe point in which to save the game for later.
