    The patch?

    Finally, somebody has come up with some sort of reasonable answer instead of just ranting off..... Thank you.
  2. What's the latest on the forthcoming patch? It seems a bit strange that we are halfway through the fourteenth month since 4.0 was released and we have still had absolutely nothing....
  3. Those guys seem about as reluctant to perform "buddy aid" as my men.

    Deploy Maxim M1910

    If the Maxim M1910 is that Russian contraption on wheels, it deploys automatically.
  5. This is great Steve but when can we expect some kind of a patch to correct the problem that was introduced with version 4.0? I am referring of course to the fleeing of troops from buildings and fortifications when a HE round lands anywhere near them! We have been waiting over a year now and many of us have had to revert all our games back to version 3.0 to get a decent game.

    Setup bug?

    It's nothing to do with version 4.0 or Mac. I've encountered this bug since 2011. It occurs with Hmg teams and buildings. You can re-locate into one building fine but then if you see a better position in a second building and try to re-locate again, you get what has been described above. Only way round it is to start the scenario again or get the mg team to run like hell to the second building and set up before the action starts. Its a bit annoying but should be easy to replicate, Ian, without a saved game.

    WeGo Moments

    Just had a situation in the Aachen campaign where a German machine gunner shot up one of my trucks and was keeping the two squads in it pinned down in the open. He was using small bursts so I couldn't pin point him but I knew which building he was in but not which of the four floors. Anyway, I managed to sneak a flamethrower team up to a hedge 35 metres from the building. I took a guess at the floor and directed a 30 second fire order. The flame spewed out and though I still never saw anything, I did hear a lot of screaming. There was no more mg fire from the building so I assume I guessed right. I think it's the first kill I've ever had from a flamethrower and it was very cool.

    Aachen campaign

    Nice work on the map, Ben.... Not sure about the great clouds of dust thrown up by vehicles, in mid October Europe but that's probably not your fault.

    Aachen campaign

    OK.....Thank you for your replies, gentlemen.
  10. I'm just starting mission one. Does anyone know what the ammo resupply situation is for this campaign? It's not mentioned in the briefing.

    Infantry Movement Rates

    It's interesting to see that vehicles hunt at the same speed as normal move, in axxe's test. You might have thought that if they were searching for targets as the command implies then slow move would be more appropriate....
  12. From memory I think it was Paper Tiger who made the campaign but I didn't have any trouble in crossing the bridge. What version are you playing it in?
  13. Definitely stick with version 3.0 It's harder, more realistic and frankly more fun. Anyway if you get halfway through you can always upgrade to 4.0 if they release a patch but you can't do this the other way round (i e start in 4.0 and revert to 3.0)

    To the Meuse!

    The map on this scenario is outstanding, almost like a dream but with regards to the mission......well, someone has come up with a real nightmare!
