Re: Tanks firing machine guns at other tanks

That technique probably will work, and could save you some main gun ammo. Not such a good idea for firing at targets that might reply with a full sized round, though..

You could of course test...

Re: Flight Path Bug?

I have been playing an L/C as Egypt in the 73 war, and have not seen any weird exits myself.

You could always justify any 180 path you see as a "split-S" :D!

However it may be there is still...

Re: Tanks firing machine guns at other tanks

The game has always fired MGs if it is an available weapon. If you don't want to fire them with your own vehicle, then switch the things off first.

I have reduced the times that a tank with only...

Re: Some questions about plotting arty

1) whoever was the spotter at the time of plotting will be the spotter for the mission, unless you change spotter and he starts ordering the fire unit.

2) as far as I recollect, the original...

Re: Warcab 0.8.0 BETA version

Expanding the core is a given. As will be cross attachment.

I can't think of any reason to stick to the same core you start with. That really only happened in SP1, where no addition or cross...

Re: Warcab 0.8.0 BETA version

Cross-attatchment can be strange.

If you add a unit to a formation, sometimes it becomes the new last unit in the formation, but other times it can become the new leader. If you have the full...

Re: Molotov cocktail/ Brandflasche etc

Molotovs are flame weapons - so they can bypass armour to get in via the engine grilles etc, they have added morale effects beyond "mere" HE on the targets (and any other5s in the same hex) and they...

Re: Reading .dat format?

I think he wants the file formats - which we cannot provide as part of the original NDA with SSI.

Perhaps you should ask whoever did the height map utility as he may have determined some of that?...

Re: PzGren Units

- are the Germans defending or delaying? - none taken then as they are pointless. More likely if advancing/attacking.

Re: Flak issue

1) AA guns are autocannon, so they have 6 shots usually. I have expert German SPAA in my current core now that show 7 shots. Plenty to pop off at ground targets and aircraft as well. And if they are...

Re: PzGren Units

It works with the mess the OOB is in - but since its not totally chronological, some units will be too "popular" if the picker code decides not to loop round at the end. i.e. the ones appearing last...

Re: Replay not showing casulaties

Not all of the messages get played in replays. PBEM replay may differ from own-game replays as well. Replay has always been an oddity of the SP system, and I have never really investigated the obtuse...
