Time of turns in multiplayer

Hi slithery ones - I hope you're enjoying your summer! Here in Oz, it's winter, but that didn't stop us from from having a 26 deg C day yesterday, same as Brexiting London! Anyway, my question relates to the time displayed when an opponent in multiplayer submits his turn. For example, Roger just put...

Re: Heat-seeking mortars?

He mortared my inf, not the other way around, so no flashes to give away my position.

And LOS errors on TWO different units? Unlikely.

Heat-seeking mortars?

Was playing against someone that I hadn't played against before. I had unloaded some guys into forest (out of LOS) and moved deeper in. Encountered no-one on the way. Guys were not adjacent nor did they advance in a straight line. Enemy did not have air support, so I was somewhat surprised when both...

You're so right! How dare they release software that is not 100% perfect in all details!

That was the answer. On iPad, if I tap and hold on a damaged vehicle, below the vehicle's name there is a text explanation of what's wrong. Hadn't noticed it before so I must suffer from Reduced Visibility too! 8)

Just had another one. Just above the seated figure, what looks like a red turret lid. Pip? Or is it secret Slithery business?

Re: Partial damage indicators

Thanks folks. Someone mentioned that the thought the sitting figure (commander?) might indicate reduced accuracy. I use iPad so it's a little hard to see, but your comments make sense.

Perhaps we need 'partial boosters' too? Vodka bottle for the Russians?

Partial damage indicators

G'day folks - I hope you're well.

Sorry if this has been covered elsewhere but couldn't find it. What do the red partial damage indicators on AFVs mean? I know tracks = immobilised, gun = no fire, but can't be sure about the rest. Thanks for clarifying!

Re: BA2 iPad release date?

G'day Iain. I was chafing about having to wait until a friend said, "let the PC folk fix all the bugs for us first"!

How're the fixes going and will we see the iPad version in October?

Re: More Help with PBEM

Regrettably you can't review the map when it's not your turn. But here's two (admittedly less effective) ideas. 1. Play two games of the same scenario at once. At least you get to see the map and what you learn from being (say) Axis in one game can be applied in the other. 2. Take screen shots and p...
