You need to press the edit key repeatedly otherwise it doesn't "catch"

Default Re: Vehicle reverse ( 8 key) question for all players

I'm using Win 11 and the paid versions for both games. I can press the 8 once, I see a message about vehicle reversing, then after a second or so the vehicle will reverse. When out of movement points, I get the message about vehicle reversing, followed by a message saying the vehicle cannot reverse. This is true for both games.

I changed the message delay in the Settings screen to the lowest level, and I can reduce the delay between pressing the 8 key and the vehicle moving to almost no delay, in both games. But then I can't see messages normally, they flash too quickly during the regular game play. So my 2 cents, it almost appears to be the message delay is a bit longer for the reversing message than other messages. Or maybe, because there is a message for a reversing vehicle but not for a vehicle moving forward, there is an icon delay when reversing so that the reversing message can display?

I assume when you wrote "Settings screen" you meant the in-game preferences and not the Game Options Misc preferences?

Yes, that's correct.

My computer broke down, so I haven't played in a couple of years, but what I can remember is it worked good but it responded slowly.

Just tested this myself on my copy of WinSPMBT v16-Extended and WinSPWW2 v15-Extended. In both pressing the '8' key to reverse worked immediately and required no holding-down of the key in any instance to work.

I tested a range of vehicles and it seemed to work each and every time I tested it, including the appropriate "[Vehicle] could not reverse!" when there were insufficient movement points available.

I do recall it being a little more finnicky in some of my older versions back when I only had the freebie version of WinSPWW2...but that's only a vague recollection and I would have to check to be more certain.

I didn't know it was there. I pressed 8 and it just happened. No long wait.

This does look like a case of you either get it to work with a single press or you need to hold it until it reverses and it would all have to do with OS and graphics cards and who-knows-what-else

I am going to add a note in the GG pointing out that some players may need to hold the key to initiate reverse but most just need to press 8 for it to start
