  1. And thank you. I have elbow trouble too - so I am going to nick one of my kids´ PS4 controllers and give it a try
  2. Sorry, but I have no idea, what a paddle is - if it is not a thing you use for propelling a canoe forward? A Google search tells that there was an Atari "paddle" back in the seventies. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paddle_(game_controller) I can´t imagine that you are talking about that? Edit: I think I may have figured it out. Is it a game controller for a Play Station?
  3. Thanks a lot, mate - and right back at ya
  4. I am assuming you are refering to CMRT. The only way I know of, is using modular buildings. If you use my factory mod set (see signature below) - there are special factory textures for both modular, independent and church buildings.
  5. Yes, that is what I would usually do in a similar situation. But in this case I gave the PIAT team a 360 degree arc - instead a focused one on pointing in the tank´s direction - because I have had several experiences where the target suddenly moves outside the armor arc. And then I could have been in the situation where the team did see the tank - but wouldn´t fire at it, because it was outside the arc! So damned if you do, damned if you dont.
  6. You could see no contact markers, because I had turned them off to avoid confusing them with contact markers for other units. I had also deselected the PIAT team in order to show where the tank was - if they had been selected the tank would have been invisible too.
  7. I dont think I have said that there was no contact marker for the tank. I have just checked - and the sikhs had it all through that turn. But still: They never spot the tank - and when the turn ends, they are 4 meters away from it!
  8. I have been debating with myself whether your comments deserve an in depth reply. I have decided that they don´t: Your sad lack of civlized language and ditto abilitity of watching the video and reading my decriptions in this thread has convinced me that you are clearly not genuinely interested in an answer. It seems to me that you belong to the tiny group of forumites who percieve even the slightest indication of criticism of the game as some sort of heresy. And so, let´s shoot the messenger.
  9. My apologies. I´d completely forgotten that I wasn´t a certified bug reporter. Next time something like this happens, I´ll just keep it to myself.
  10. Probably this. Perhaps you inadvertently hit "alt-k". I know, I have - several times.
  11. Alas, I am not sure either, as I must admit I haven´t had the good (or perhaps ill?) fortune of coming across either product during any of my many visits to your lovely country. But ever since my first visit (back when "Never Mind the Bollocks" was just an itch in Malcolm McLaren' s wallet) I have been a beans-on-toast afficionado. When we returned I would stare hungrily at my dad´s "The Who Sell out" album. Beans-on-toast is by the way the only time when I prefer wheat based bread over rye, @Erwin Proper rye bread is generally the one food stuff danish expats say they miss the most.
  12. Wow: I´d say that this thread suddenly got interesting. I could of course contend that we danes are actually not loudmouthed at all, because we´ve always weeded out the noisiest of our brethren by placing them in boats and pointing them westwards. But that might cause a bit of noise from folk like @Warts 'n' all and mr @Battlefront.com himself, so instead I will wear the loudmouthed label as a bagde of honour and work twice as hard to live up to it. Of course I expect this to provide me with a permanent forum ban immunity – as I am ethnically predisposed for loudness 😁 So no, I wasn´t offended by Warts´ post – I laughed. But perhaps I´d have frowned bit, if I hadn´t been familiar with him and his sikh sense of humour. He is, after all, a subject of our former western colonies. A bit more on-topic: I think it goes beyond saying that I consider CM the best game around. That doesn´t mean that I think it is always perfect. I started this thread because I was both surprised and frustrated by the team´s blindness -and because I though it might be something bug-ish that BFC would like to know about. So: Peace y´all – and remember us in your prayers: Umloud
  13. "Is that a bulge in your firefly - or are you just happy to see me?"
  14. Yes. Let’s just say that their turbans suddenly slipped down and covered their eyes and ears 😜
  15. Not exactly how that turn played out. I must admit I was so unhappy with this that I reloaded the turn again in the hope that they would see the tank next time. If I remember correctly, I had to reload three or four times before they finally saw the damn thing. So their blindness wasnt just a one-off fluke. And yesterday I had an almost identical experience in CMBN: A PIAT team is waiting in ambush behind a hedge row (not Bocage) for an approaching Panther that is emerging from a cloud of smoke. I have placed them there because I´m sure the Panther will approach the hedge at some point. The PIAT team has a cover armour arc facing the Panther - which emerges from the smoke about 10 metres from the hedge and the team. The Panther drives directly up to the hedge and immediately spots and kills the PIAT team - who never even spot the Panther driving direct at them! I also reloaded that turn. The next time they spotted it, fired a couple of useless shots - and got killed. But at least they spotted it.
  16. Would the smoke and dust be sound proof too?
  17. Okay, I´ll try once more. @BFCElvis ?
  18. Just wondering if there is a patch for R2V on the way? The south african voices are still not working.
  19. I am guessing that perhaps SP means Single Player?
  20. Yeah, me too. That is why I have created shortcuts on my desktop. As I understand it, Normandy is the only one of the CM titles where you are able to place the entire game directory some place other than the C drive. Have all my game "data" files (and Normandy) on my F drive - and only the mandatory files from the other CM titles on the C drive - to avoid clogging up my C drive. Perhaps you did something similar when you installed CMBN?
  21. The battle described here is the basis for the TWC scenario: Sudden Fury. A very entertaining little battle to play with the Jagdpanthers
