Re: Resolution question

Windowed mode offers 1600x1280 which is the one I was thinking of. That should fit on your screen?.

There wont be any changes to the list of fixed resolutions, which were all for XP and earlier...

Re: Resolution question

1920x1080 is one of the old style 4:3 "square" modes, you will need a monitor which supports it - old CRT monitors like IILyamas did, but modern flatscreen ones use wider ratios, it may fit on a 4K...

Re: Propostion of new type of drone USV inside game

Yes, this game is land warfare and not naval.

Now - one could make a scenario and tweak some existing boat (size zero say) and set it at night as a harbour attack and lad the boat with an...

Re: Japanese game notes: jungle training

The SSI game seems to hae come from panzerblitz as a progenitor. And likely a couple of others, like Sniper!.

Re: German Company Level Kampfgruppe?

From what I gather from my reading, they liked to put together a batallion of each main type to make a 2 batallion battle group (tank + infantry) and then basically manouvre as double teams (a tank...

Re: Promotions?

EXP is the main thing that effects the game and you already get a notice at the end of a campaign game if a unit levels up to average, veteran etc.

(Units gain morale and rally stats as they...

Re: Promotions?

Special battles come up now and then.

You get better VP from them, if you win, or the ratio for a decisive battle is lower. You don't get any chance to repair or refit any units though beforehand....

Re: winSPMBT version 10.0 - 16.0 Consolidation patch (2022)

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

Re: Possible ideas for next patch

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?

Re: Just rebooted this game and wow!

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

Re: The difference between average and elite ammo dumps?
