Re: Possible OOB or Code Issue?

Bicycles that are separate are motorcycles, which are vehicles. Vehicles which smash into houses can get immobilised. Bikes that are one-piece jobs are probably cavalry (which is a form of infantry)...

Re: Apcalc

Mobhack is not a calculator - its an editor. The value there is the base AP value.

APcalc is a calculation, based on 1000 rounds "fired" via the game code. Its an average of the 1000 rounds, so...

Re: Feature requests for 2019

The recent fighting in the Ukraine shows what happens to light APC caught in an artillery concentration. And these modern APC are not open-topped as WW2 ones tended to be. Even T-72 are disassembled....

Re: Mines

Triggering mines is by movement into or out of the hex. Dismounting in a hex is not "movement" as it uses a different routine. Dismounts aren't entering the hex, by the game rules.

Maybe that...

Re: Apcalc

Javelins are top-attack missiles, so they get more than the average top armour hits - therefore the front armour is usually irrelevant. The thin roof armour is what gets attacked. Also note what I...

Re: AI and Arty. Observers

AI uses observers, if one is in LOS of the target. It has no plan for them other than shuffle forwards with the rest of the lemmings. It does not know about gold spots, repeat calls or adjusting off...

Re: Feature requests for 2019

Artillery is an attritional weapon - in order to achieve killing effect, especially on dug-in troops, it needs to be applied over a significant time. In the game, that means like 5 moves plus of...

Re: Apcalc

weapon 61 has warhead 44 - an obvious error that contributes to the penetration. Likely a double tap of 4, many years ago. Something to fix for the next release.

HEAT (and AP) are an average of...

Re: No sound effects

The next thing - have you turned sound off in Windows, has your sound speaker's volume been physically switched off (if it has a separate dial like mine does). And has the jack fallen out the back of...

shotgun - not weird, the Vhex placement code is a tangle and sometimes you will still see normal clusters (I play the other way and see shotgunned ones). if you don't like the initial placement, spin...

Re: Generated Campaigns, Jets and UAVs

Air strike points - if the game gives you some then you can buy air units up to that number, which then decreases per flight bought. If you have zero, you have no potential air support.

Re: Generated Campaigns, Jets and UAVs

If the points are low - then there may be little air, as planes are expensive in this time frame.

Israel is one of the highest air support armies - so its unlikely that the Arabs will ever have...

Re: Simulation of Gas Attacks?

Edit the relevant OObs and deduct 2 from all movement to allow for wearing Noddy suits, being closed down AFV etc, leaving at least 1 MP for lower (guns, mortars) if you desire.

Re: Prehistoric SP -- July 1996 Beta

Re: Arty penalty

Artillery Overload is applied to the player that buys excess artillery - it has nothing to do with what the other player does. Both could overload and thus pay penalty points to each other.

Re: Amphibious Vehicles and Streams

Fords are the safer spots to cross streams at. Fords cost less MP to cross and are less likely to get you stuck.

The sticking chance is more if your vehicle has expended MP before trying to cross...

Re: How do I kill an Apache helicopter?

If hovering - use an APDS round. Rather deadly from modern MBT if he forgets to shift (and the AI is bad at that). An ATGM can slot it in the hover as well, but MBT Sabot is the best on one that's...

Re: Spanish OOB32 and OOB33 v.11 (2018)

A range of 200 is required for off-map artillery. If range is less than 200, the battery can only reach some bits of large maps since range (if not 200+) is measured from 0,0 and so the lower right...
