Re: Mouse is jittery and I can't control it on the opening s

The Steam version is at 1.03. The non Steam version will be updated tomorrow I believe. Normally they are done at the same time but a critical bug had to be patched for the Steam version to keep the game server from crashing. Got the game working in the end, I had to disconnect my flight panels as w...

Re: Multiplayer in differents PC

Tomorrow is Thursday not Monday. By the way, as Ian explained in another post, Steam users of HoN were causing the game server to crash so they rushed out an emergency fix to solve that problem. There is a bug causing some people to not be able to log in unfortunately. We're working on it and think ...

Re: ABOUT THE DICE ROLLS

Rolling dice is rolling dice, sometimes good luck is with you and sometimes not. As has been stated by Slitherine, the dice are working in the same way as physical dice. Yea, it is frustrating to have a streak of bad rolls but that is the nature of probability. I remember a board game I played many ...

Re: REFUND?

The game saves your progress between missions. There is no "in middle of mission" save feature. As someone else stated missions don't take very long to play.

Re: "Enemy's Best Friend" Bug

Probably a good thing as getting Rex back to your lines seems an impossibility. In the second US campaign, "Enemy's Best Friend" where you have to rescue Rex, the mission ends when you kill Hauser and you get credit for completing both objectives even if Rex is still free. While I appreciate the eas...

Advanced Tactics Gold deserves to be on that list and in my humble opinion, in the top 10.

Re: Artillery versus anti-tank guns

My experience from lots of BA2 games is that AT guns are dead on the first strike from artillery type units at least 99% of the time.

Re: Battle Academy2 IOS - LOS, gun problems

I suspect in regard to item 2 that you are being sighted by an enemy infantry unit that you cannot see and mortar/artillery fire is being called down on you.

I don't have an iPad so can comment beyond saying LOS in general has the appearance of being rather tricky.

Checkout the OPTIONS.TXT file in Documents (or MyDocuments)\My Games\BA2

A few lines down you should see Fullscreen 1 (1 is for fullscreen I believe)

Re: Play balance

I think in the early years the German player is allowed to purchase too many Tiger tanks. Soviet superior mobility isn't going to help much if you don't have much room to maneuver.

Re: Typical very small attack-defend skirmish forces?

Sounds about right. I just completed an attack/defend skirmish on a 64x64 wilderness map with large forces. I was the Soviet defender. I thought on a map this size I'm toast. No way to keep three VPs in my control at game end but somehow I managed to win. The German player had at least 3 Tigers, 5 o...

In addition to ushosp request I'd like to see sliders for various terrain features: forest, mud, marsh, etc. I know we have the 'openness' setting but I'd like to see more control over individual terrain features, especially mud and marsh. It would also be nice to see a wilderness map have a small v...

Re: Skirmish Mode:OOB availability and Scenario selection

From what I read the first Tiger 1's saw action in late August 1942 near Leningrad. Three were knocked out by Russian AT guns and a forth got stuck in the mud. Thereafter they were used on terrain more favorable to its weight. I know they are a fun weapon system to have and they make for happy gamer...

1. Right click... 2. At this tactical level of play I don't necessarily think one would know what or when. Regardless, I think not knowing adds to the fun and tactical tension of this fine game. Hello: 1. When you buy a unit I cannot see a way to undo a choice. 2. When you get the purchase screen it...

Re: Potential Skirmish Issue

I'm of the opinion the Soviet selection routine in skirmish games needs some tweaking and perhaps the German as well in various years so they don't get so many of the Tiger tanks but are more spread out with other models. Am I missing something or is the Skirmish programming not getting the date vs ...
