Re: German Pioneer Rockets?

The german engineers would haul these thiungs up to take care of bunkers etc on occasion, apparently.

They only have the 2 rounds, and so I have never used them myself since they are a one trick...

Re: APC Development and related topics.

The 6 vehicle double-platoon really does not fit the 10 item formation formation.

It will likely best be done with a platoon of grunts and then a platoon of carriers, for the human player only. He...

Re: Tank Tracks to Pusan

Timed objectives really are best on low points values IMHO since they do tot up over time - and especially so if it is to be a grunt fight where they slog on foot!.

And it has been a decade or so...

Re: Couple of questions...

1) as above - if you get spotted, spot a new enemy, or get shot at, Or an enemy unit assaulted you then you cannot undo a move.

Re: Abadan Peninsula Black Screen - Bug

That seems to have done the trick - hasnt blown u in 12 or so turns AI v AI anyhow.

Re: Abadan Peninsula Black Screen - Bug

I'll probably run it at a future date with the map text layer code commented out and see if it runs OK.

I have tried map text off, it worked for ten or twelve turns and then bang...

Right then - downloaded the map Don put up, problem reappears.

Re: Abadan Peninsula Black Screen - Bug

Confirmed - saving the map in the scenario editor looks like it fixed the (presumed) bad data.

- now select edit map

Re: Abadan Peninsula Black Screen - Bug

Yes - immediately going into the edit map function (in the scenario editor) and pressing M to disable map text seems to do the trick.

After doing that I went and bought troops and then deployed...

Re: Abadan Peninsula Black Screen - Bug

I transferred the map to WW2 and tried it. After a bit and after troop purchases it went squiffy when deploying them. It seems to be related to having troops on the table somehow.

Something to try...

Re: Abadan Peninsula Black Screen - Bug

There does seem to be something poisonous in that map in the game - but not the extended map editor.

I simply loaded it as a custom map in the game scenario editor and tried to scroll, then got...

Re: Turret crew and Fire Control

The French tanks with 1 man turrets should have lower rate of fire than a similar one with a better turret crew (exept if MG or cannon armed, auto weapons and rifles etc with 1 WH size usually get 6...

Re: My Tank is "Damaged"

To edit on this forum software press the edit button, wait a second and press it again.

No idea why that is so, but the multiple botton press is needed to get it to work.

Re: AFV shrapnel (same hex, adjacent hex)

And if you see the "hit by shell splinters" message then that hit will never take the hit vehicle past buttoned status, so you are wasting shots if you get those in the main.

Re: Overstacking and accuracy in AFV combat

OOB 22 does different things for different opponents - e.g its ISIS against Iraq post Saddam, different Islamist groups vs the French and so on. And ISIS did capture and use some ex-Iraqui MBT.

Re: Mexico OOB

Did you just rename the OOB?

Presumably you did not renationalise the units and formations to the new OOB slot number?
