    Hilts got a reaction from The Steppenwulf in hummm patche 4, I need your opinion   
    I don't think all is as it should be. I'm playing through the Kampfgruppe Engle campaign (which I started in engine 3) and my troops seem skittish. Two half squads, one vet the other crack were behind a bocage hedge. A mortar round landed nearby (at the other side of the hedge) and both squads ran through the gap towards the enemy and cowered in open ground. I thought this was precisely  what the patch was supposed to correct.

    I have to say I'm quite impressed with the new troop behaviour under fire. Not tried it with entrenchments yet but in the Bank scenario I've got several exciting inter-building firefights going on which would have been impossible before as everyone just ran away. Seems like Combat Mission is fun again! I'm looking forward to the release of the patch to bring the other titles up to this standard. Well done Battlefront!

    On the "Bank" scenario there are unsightly big gaps where many of the modular buildings are joined. Troops can move and fire through them!

    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....

    The whole communiction from the side of BF is a joke. People can defend it as much as they like, but their PR is not only very bad, it is almost non-existent. I don't buy nonsense like 'they must concentrate on their work', 'new information will only bring discussion and questions' and 'you can tell them how to do things once you have your own company'.
    Reading this forum IS like being stuck in a time-loop and the lack of information IS causing speculation.
     
     
    Utter arrogance. Technically not allowed to say that....

    Hilts reacted to Txema in The patch?   
    Well, a long discussion about those problems in engine 4.0 started in April: (10 months ago!). And a lot of people were agreeing there was an important problem.
    And Battlefront acknowledged the problem, after a lot of requests from his customers, at least in August (6 months ago):
    In my opinion a patch to fix the main problem with engine 4.0 should have been already released. I can not understand the policy that Battlefront is following with engine 4.0. It was released 14 months ago and at least 10 months ago a long discussion was started pointing out an important problem with that engine and stock campaigns. But that is only my opinion, of course.

    Taking what bait? This is not about you. Why should it be about you? And why is 'seeing' you of any importance? Unlike Steve and you are the same person.  You are just picturing yourself as the voice of reason. Which you are not. People are asking justified questions and in return calling them sad or pathetic IS arrogant. If screenshots are announced and promised, but nothing happens for more than a month, than there is something wrong with communicating from the side of BF.  Time and  time again reading the same old 'information' is getting on people's nerves. That's quite normal.
    And another thing. This forum needs a Young Guard, since the Old Guard is pretty decimated. So let's welcome their comments and questions and make them feel at home, so they will stay with us.

    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.

    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.
