Re: Strange email game anomaly

In secure PBEM, each player has to keep thier turns in complete lockstep and ensure they complete thier turns properly - not sending an incompleted turn to the opponent for example. They also have to...

Re: Possible ideas for next patch

There already is a list of your units in the same hex with the currently selected unit's button at the top of the list. It was added in version 13, as a feature for full game holders.

Re: Possible ideas for next patch

Any aircraft that goes to 0 crew or 0 hit points is totally destroyed. That is instant and irreversable.

Helos that are damaged and have passengers do sometimes allow a turn of use before they...

Re: Possible ideas for next patch

Yes, stack movement is something that would have to be baked into the game design right from the beginning, ie a completely new game system and thus brand new game from the ground up. Its not...

Nope. It would need added data to the main unit info for a delay amount, code to count that down, what happens if it gets a second dose of damage?. And what precisely are the events that cause...

Re: Just rebooted this game and wow!

Yep, I don't really worry much about the base to-hit number being low. If I decide the shot is necessary then I'll blaze away at the target with all guns in range if it is a "nasty" thing like say an...

Re: is spotting affected by training/morale?

A units experience is used in its spotting throws, naturally.

Moving vehicles get spotted very easily (choppers even more so) unless a long way away (1-2 km away) and in cover, but small size and...

Re: Just rebooted this game and wow!

Are there any other "war stories" you can tell us?

I can't help but wonder if the AI cheating in the old SSI code was due to:

A.) Not enough CPU cycles in 1995 to do an AI that did a lot of...

Re: Just rebooted this game and wow!

I have been playing as well as coding the games for 20+ odd years now, and so would by now have twigged any such cheat code if it existed.

Now the original MSDOS SSI code (SP1, 2 and so on)...

I already use a tweaker for the start menu for windows 10 (classic shell) to replace the useless bodge microsoft foisted on us and regain a windows-XP style start menu.

Re: Windows 11

Try the windows taskbar settings - does windows 11 still have the choice of large or small taskbar buttons? - if so, use the other ones (small instead of large, say).

Re: The difference between average and elite ammo dumps?

Only in that a pinned ammo unit resupplies at a lower rate and so a higher status one may take less supppression from shells going off nearby and so not be pinned by it, or not run away from it...

Re: Can you help me to understand FASCAM batteries better, please?

They are purely for laying of instant minefields, and priced extortionately so as not to allow the player to spam mines all over the map on a whim. They only get 3 sots as well, for the same reason....

Re: Scenario reviews

Scenario designers can do really odd things which produce totally weird results.

If the "fake" plnes have no crew then they are likely not to be spotted unless a unit randomly occupies the hex and...

Re: Scenario reviews

Bunkers can be succesfully engaged with rifle fire, it creates suppression and occasionaly a round gets through the firing ports. Same with general HE bombardment as well.

Re: Three SP mortars do not fire explosive rounds & one fratricidal artillery piece

The AI would only be mortaring it if it had seen it somehow, otherwise because it was adjacent to other units that drew its attention.

Just leave the AO on some hilltop in the rear, well away from...

Re: Three SP mortars do not fire explosive rounds & one fratricidal artillery piece

I leave A0 as an HQ element and leave it on the baseline where it might be useful as an observer while it still does its real job of being the conduit to all off-map units. (if A0 is dead or running...

Re: Three SP mortars do not fire explosive rounds & one fratricidal artillery piece

I simply made the changes in mobhack, then loaded the sample turn 0 game you sent and all was well.

If you are trying to make the changes to a "running" game beyond the turn 0 save you sent, then...

Re: Three SP mortars do not fire explosive rounds & one fratricidal artillery piece

1) Making your HQ an artillery piece is not a good idea. In subsequent turns from turn 0, it wont be able to plot artillery, since artillery pieces cannot self-plot and so you have lost the ability...
