Re: Brighter tracers?

..I am still experimenting.. Me too, Pip suggested I google "alpha" and read up on it, but I'm afraid it's beyond me as I don't know nothing about techy stuff, I only know how to do a few key presses and mouse clicks to make my little men run around shooting their guns (sniffle) This is the best I ...

Brighter tracers?

Hi guys, is there a mod or script or magic wand to make tracer fire more dramatic, such as bright red, green or orange?
If not, can you tell me where exactly is the default tracer graphic in the BA files as I'd like to have a crack at it myself by jazzing up the colours with Paint or Photoshop.

I'm a PC dummy and don't know anything about computers, I only know how to play wargames, so if I can playtest Caen for you let me know..:)

Re: Can't understand the Morale thing

..aimed fire is just a name for the elite units' "Special attack". When rifle squad or lmg squad got the sniper skill, all the ones with a cannon get the "aimed fire". .....[Assaults]-When people feel the percentage really tell them something, bullshit, not at all.

Re: PzC Future?

Yes, for example chess has been hugely popular for centuries without any fancy graphics..:) PS-one of my favourite games is 'Battle Academy' (...

The main forum for the game is over on Matrix: https://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tt.asp?forumid=1254 Thanks, I've never understood why there are two forums, so perhaps the separate Matrix and Slitherine forums should be combined into one super-duper forum?

Re: Can't understand the Morale thing

Re: Assaults, I think it is random number odds on the straight percentage shown. I have had a few 10% chance assaults succeed. Thanks, personally I'm too terrified to Assault unless the odds are over 100%..:) PS- Something else has just come up which I don't understand, namely that when firing an A...

Re: Can't understand the Morale thing

On page 30 of the BA2:Eastern Front manual it says- "If morale drops below 50, then units will not react to nor be able to fire at the enemy..Note that armour will still react to being attacked, even when suppressed, but with large penalties to accuracy." So that seems to be the only time that low m...

Can't understand the Morale thing

For example if I've got 2 identical tanks (One at 100% morale, and the other at 90% morale) both firing at the same target, will the 100 percenter have better accuracy?
Same applies to infantry and other units, is morale tied into how effective a units fire is?

I'm absolutely knocked out by B1st because of it's 3D approach; you can zoom right in to get among your boys, and can adjust view angles and stuff in the Data>MAPVIEW file like I've done here- Some of my boys probe the streets and alleys of Caumont in Normandy.. https://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g6...

Re: I want to share an interesting information for you

I saw there is a new close combat game as well? Yes it's called 'The Bloody First' and has just been released, there's a multiplayer option but I don't know if it's been started up yet. It's the only Close Combat game in the CC series that's got an oblique 3D view (the rest are top-down 2D). In Blo...
