Re: Rifle/SMG Effective Range

And comparing an SMG in weapon slot 2+ against the rifles in slot 1 is also superfluous.

As mentioned in the mobhack help somewhere - infantry prime weapons (rifle smg) in slot 1 are multiplied by...

Re: Korea 1950 scenarios and maps

Mini 10 seems to be a netbook, not a PC as such?. Likely it falls short in graphics processor, and/or sheer RAM compared to even a basic desktop. The processor is also likely to be a cut-down model...

Since I dont have any above that number other than a few random items - probably some as yet unissued ones.

Re: Airstrike Question

Re: uh1-gunship

A coax (slot 2 MG on AFV) usually only fires close in (to about 6-8 hexes?), and very occasionally if the range is in the 9-12 range. That's inherited SSI code that has always been there. It may...

Re: uh1-gunship

Not 100% sure from the vague description given, but when firing at infantry or other soft targets you sometimes do not get the full "chain of fire" if:

Re: Counter battery fire question

Off map arty can counter other off map arty, if the range is >= the target battery and its skill is high and it is not plotted to fire.

On map arty is a target for both on and off map arty.

Re: Crash when loading map in campaign

What sort of editing did you do to these maps? E.g adding streams, map text or whatever. It would be helpful if we could narrow it down to something.
