Re: Daunted by Long Campaign force selection

OK so in a British LC (40 battles starting April 1940) two 60-pounder troops were bought as part of the core, hoping to upgrade one or both to longer-range off-map artillery for CB. Couldn't find a...

Re: Height Maps

The flood fill was a wee bit tricky until I figured out how too get the edging done properly. The regular fill with water code just slams in lake hexes and nukes adjoining land - so large areas left...

Re: Crash down

Or one of the sound files has been corrupted?

Try firstly turning mouse click back on, and see if that works fine (no crashes)

If so then turn sound fx back on and see if it crashes, and if it...

Re: Skittish VH Scenario #470

Re: Perhaps additional settings for "AI Tank Heavy"?

How am I supposed to do that in the campaign? :v[/QUOTE]

As mentioned before - edit yourself a custom OOB that works for you. Swap it back for the old one if playing a scenario etc.

We cannot...

Re: Perhaps additional settings for "AI Tank Heavy"?

And as explained - it buys cheap things with remaining points when it has only loose change to spend. The cheap stuff is riflemen, if an MBT is 500 points and it has 1000 or so left, then it wont buy...

Re: Perhaps additional settings for "AI Tank Heavy"?

Same answer as above

Use the OOB swap utility. Back up the old enemy OOB in a sub directory, then use mobhack to edit a copy where you swap the tank platoons and coys elsewhere in the OOB (up at...

Re: Perhaps additional settings for "AI Tank Heavy"?

This is it - tanks in the later years are hugely expensive, when APCs get festooned with missiles and thermal sights they cost almost as much as the MBT, and AAA assets (and attack helos etc) also...

Re: 3840x2160 monitor

Re: 3840x2160 monitor

The SAL errors occur when you try to use a resolution the monitor cannot handle.

You should use windowed mode at desktop resolution.

Full-screen (256 colour) mode is only there as a legacy from...

Re: windows 10 problem

I am running the game just fine on this windows 10 laptop, so windows 10 is not the issue.

If it ran fine before, and now does not then it would likely be due to a change at your end. If you can...

Re: Russian 76mm ZIS-3 FG

Ran a quick test and bought those guns in 47.

Entirely plottable for HE or Smoke as long as the target hex was beyond minimum range.

If the target was inside minimum range, then these 2 ammo...

Re: Russian 76mm ZIS-3 FG

Was the target too close to the gun? - they do have a minimum range of 20 hexes or so in indirect fire.

Re: Guns in WW2

The code is the same, the statistics differ - WW2 is smaller rounds generally and less assistance from R/F, Stabiliser, F/C etc.

Your opponent may be using single MG teams, with 1 gun and 3-4 crew...

Re: Guns in WW2

In MBT yuor tanks tend to have 90, 105 and 120mm main guns. Your artillery is engaging with 105, 155mm class weapons routinely. Vehicles have higher FC and tend to be stabilised.

So in MBT,...

Re: Choosing sides in Meeting Engagement

For most opponent pairings, you will get to know which side they play from after a little experience. However that can change e.g. UK vs Gemany in the desert in WW2 to Europe. In MBT though against...
