Re: mojave on mac and BA2

Unfortunately I am guessing that Apple have removed support for 32 bit applications in this version of the OS? They don't seem to care about supporting the applications that people have paid for if removing such support makes their life easier in developing their OSes.

Re: Fatal Application Exit

An alternative is that you can open any LSF file with a text editor and the first line shows it's display name.

Re: CC:The Bloody First

Glad you are having fun, though I think it fair to say that the visuals aren't really designed to be seen that close up!

The main forum for the game is over on Matrix: https://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tt.asp?forumid=1254

Re: Multiplayer game weirdness

There was a server outage yesterday around this time. Could you please send details of the games to support and they can try and recover them to their pre-outage states.

Re: Spoty wifi causin my FOG II multiplayer to lock up

When sending the turn the game resets the HTTP connection each time it tries, and if this is failing to reconnect to the wifi then unfortunately is sounds like the driver or the stack still isn't reconnecting to the wifi as it should. Sadly this isn't uncommon, depending on the type of wifi adapter....

Re: List of mods?

People (who have not added their campaigns to the official in-game list) post about their mods in the Modders Corner section.

Modding the models for the markers isn't really practical unfortunately.

Re: List of mods?

You will need a graphics app which allows you to alter the alpha channel, or to save the file with it intact. It sounds like the alpha channel is being stripped. Alpha is a forth channel (after RGB) that defines the opacity of the texture. Google is your friend if you want a more detailed explanatio...

Re: Spoty wifi causin my FOG II multiplayer to lock up

Are the games locking up during play, or when you attempt to send the turn? Wifi failure shouldn't cause a lockup, the HTTP coms runs in its own thread specifically to deal with naughty TCP stacks.

Re: Nearing the 100 hour mark

Just to note that if you just want to change the look of the battle (and not the UI), you can tweak the CLUT and even the shader in DATA/GFX.

You can tinker with DATA/UI/TEXTURES/BATTLE/TRACER.TGA to alter the colour and alpha of the tracers.

They need to go in the your local folder (Documents/My Games/BBCBA/Multiplayer), assuming you have downloaded them by hand.

Re: Bug on hills borders

Everything looks in order, so unfortunately I can only surmise it is a bug in the driver. With such a new card they may not have put all the DX9 code paths through especially thorough testing. I would suggest checking via the card application whether it is trying to do anything clever with the textu...

Re: Bug on hills borders

Can you please paste it into a post here, the download site you linked seems to want to download an EXE. We really only need the first 100 lines or so. As RBS says we have only seen this previously on emulated machines. Are you running in a VM for example?

Re: Steam ver crashes, Disc ver plays but can't get dlc

I would guess the issue is that the game is trying to run using Vulkan on a GPU that doesn't support it. The original disk copy would be the pre-vulcan version, Steam auto-updates. You need to force the game to run on your nVidia device rather than the (I assume) Intel low-power GPU it will try and ...

Re: Question: Does anyone know where GetUnitLOS() lives?

It is a function which calls into the engine to do the LOS calculations. They would likely be performance prohibitive in script.

I am not sure what -w in target means, but you switch the games to Windowed mode via the in-game options (or by editing the Documents/My Games/<game folder>/OPTIONS.TXT file, but this is only needed if you cannot access the in-game options). You can play Windowed mode with no frame which will have t...
