Default Help on Demo

Well, I downloaded the demo and the game looks to be fun. However, got a problem I can't figure out. How do I get my men to move. I've got them out of their parachutes, I can get them to "look" and get the to fire their guns - but the movement icons in the action popup never darken for me to make movement selections - walk, crawl, etc.. I'm certain I'm missing something very simple and basic, but heck if I can figure it out. Can someone give me any assistance?

You should see colored dots near your soldier. Just click on one to move. They are range based (the colors).

I think what is happening is they are still in their parachutes. It takes 2-3 turns to get them out. You must hit the continue button each additional turn once you have started the remove parachute action. Once they are totally out of their chutes, the movemment buttons will light up.

I can remember my Last game, my men were being fired upon still in their chutes! First and only time that ever happened (unlike bad drops, where my stick lands with only a handful of men left)!

Thanks for the responses. Like someone posted, it just took a couple of turns for them to get out of there chutes. Enjoying it so far. Again, thanks.

Grifman:

Be sure to pack each man with the 'standard' equipment. This will give each one of them a switch-blade. This GREATLY speeds the removal of the 'chutes.

Them feel free to drop the switch-blade the first time you do an "Exchange" with another soldier (alive or dead). No use luggin' that knife around Normandy when its need has passed...and sometimes you need that one extra pound of weight ;-)
