Re: Forgotten Units Mod and stuff...

Does anyone know what Tizard_Mission in specialisations.csv is :?: It's not listed in the spec files and the US "nuclear_bomb" spec (which has the "Tizard_Mission" spec as requirement, too) works without it in the Pacific DLC; so my guess would be some leftover code from a spec that was planned but...

Re: Sub deckgun

Well, this British 8-strength S-class sub (on lend-lease to the Danes) managed to sink an unfortunate German 10-strength infantry seatransport with just one salvo from its deck-gun. Was the German seatransport unit recently embarked? If so, I thought that the "Embarkation Vulnerability" bug was fix...

Re: Campaign minor nation specs not available

Sorry if this question may sound redundant, but when creating a campaign completely from scratch with the editor, do the specs with the "main" factions work okay?

i've been testing windows since NT4, so hopefully i know a thing or 2 :roll: :wink: :mrgreen:
:D Yeah, that was the first "stable" Windows system I've encountered in those (ancient :wink: ) times, too.
But I've become somewhat (more) lazy with age. Never change a running system... :lol:

Re: OoB at 2160p resolution

I don't think it will help, because the problem is with the OoB. I expect you to be very happy with your new screen (cursed or not ;)) because newer games and all other Windows use should be so much more enjoyable. :D Thanks, and to be honest, I'm happy already ! :D I said "no rush", but with three...

Re: OoB at 2160p resolution

:D Above all, the increased screen size was my first motivation for buying the 43" piece. The 4K I've considered an "extra". I'm already at the 200% DPI setting, which even looks a bit weird with Windows itself, some menus being kind of unreadable (with older programs/software). So I'm already consi...

Re: OoB at 2160p resolution

But isn't this (UI scaling) the kind of thing the game itself either offers (=Battletech) or does not (=OoB)? I didn't test any other games besides those two yet, it's a brand new setup for me. There was no problem with BattleTech, just had to change the resolution settings and decrease the quality...

Re: Blitzkrieg Norway problem

Thanks, I just downloaded it this week, didn't realize I needed to update. You're probably not using a Steam version then. The whole download system with the Matrix/Slitherine sites is a bit complicated, I give you that. There, you'll have to download a small file supposedly containing the new DLC,...

Re: Blitzkrieg Norway problem

Playing this in 1 player mode. Mid way thru the campaign-scenario it adds that you need to kill 6 Allied units. After that I killed everyone that I could find, at least 8 or 9 and it only credited me with one kill. At the end of the time limit it said I was defeated. What did I do wrong or is this ...

Re: OoB at 2160p resolution

I see. Thanks, Zak. Actually I didn't expect 4K to work at all with my old Win7 rig with 60Hz. Therefore the pleasant surprise. I wanted to keep it at 1080p at first, even with the monitor supporting 4K. But then... :D the issue for me is your trying to couple the latest display technology while try...

OoB at 2160p resolution

I've just installed my new 4K "monitor", rather a huge TV, and surprisingly the installation with Win7 went rather smooth. So from now on I'm playing at 3840x2160/60Hz/4:4:4. :shock: 8) :mrgreen: :mrgreen: Although my whole Windows is scaled at 200% (ppi) due to my rather poor eyesight. :oops: But w...

I guess they are supposed to be Italians fighting for Germany? Then it's "Italienische Freiwillige". :)

But I'm no geography or history expert, maybe there was another "Ital" country out there somewhere then... :wink:

Re: Add a new scenario to a campaign

Re: Mistakes vere made, mein Fuhrer - Endsieg Review and Discuss

When I think how ppl like to deploy several pieces of heavy arty I'm beginning to wonder if the bigger calibers (like, say above 120-150mm and above) of towed guns should get slightly higher CP requirements. A simple +1 would mean deploying 3 K18 (or comparable non-German guns) would cost people on...

Re: Wire Guided Bomb Specialisation does not work

I can confirm it. You only get the normal -7 reduction of the enemy fortification level - the promised additional +2 is missing. I'm not familiar with the editor, so I tried it with the real thing (in this case the Kursk scenario). Nevertheless, should be ok, yes? Thank you, Cool! Yes, that's okay ...
