  1. Hi there, Since installing 4.0 individual members of squads will now end up physically separated with the icon located somewhere in the middle. When given a new move order, the icon will move to that new location, but the men are still very far apart. This seems to happen when they need to figure out how to move around bocage. I am guessing the centroid of their group/team/unit) is the floating icon and if the icon ends up in the right location but men are still way separated trying to navigate bocage, the game thinks the move order is complete. Problem is I can't get back to group up again, on the next move order they move relative to the icon. Kinda hard to sneak up on my enemy currently. Also I thought 4.0 would allow men to ride on tanks? Only in Russia is this possible?
  2. Hi there, I'm overwhelmed by the number of prepackaged scenarios in the complete CMBN. I don't have a lot of time, so I am playing PBEM with a friend. Quick battles have been fun but it seems many of the scenarios are used in AAR's and they always seem a bit more interesting to me. Is there a good way of choosing scenarios for H2H? A list or a ranking of them (this sounds silly I know). Many times you need to load the mission to know if the author intended it for H2H. If I had all the time in the world we'd slowly try them all, alas, I do not. Thanks, Matt

    4.0 Can't alt-TAB

    Yeah nothing has changed but an update to 4.0. So I really doubt its gfx drivers. I will try though. Alt-tab and screen saver minimize game to a tiny bar that can't be opened. I'm starting to think Battlefront needs more technical staff. Everytime I want to sign into the forum I need to reset my password....that or they dislike me!

    4.0 Can't alt-TAB

    Well I also found out that if I walk away for a few minutes, or use my phone to read up on a unit, and my screen saver starts. The game minimizes into a tiny bar that I can no longer open and I need to ctr-alt-del to close and have to start over again. Awesome.
  5. Just installed 4.0 update on RT. I can no longer ALT-TAB, which is pretty big bummer considering how long a CM game takes. Anyone else have this issue?
  6. I had the flickering icons issue. I don't remember the red triangles flickering. As with SgtHatred, my enemy contact (?) icons did not flicker. I'm running GTX 980 Ti SC+
  7. Just wanted to add a +1 to the flickering icon issue. In each game they've disappeared completely the longer I play and the more I move the camera. no saves but only in TCP/IP games. Not sure it's related to minefields moving during a reload of TCP/IP saves, but I have had all my TRP's move to my spawn locations. VERY frustrating when you are facing a heavily entrenched enemy!

    Attacking dug-in germans?

    I am playing a multiplayer game, so each one is a steep learning curve, definitely did not know about trench's and bunker although I should have guessed. I will probably reduce the amount of rifle squads I purchase in the future, add some more specialized units. Are flame throwers ok moving through dense woods? There is a small rise leading up to the woods, so my approach is covered until I am there, but then under intense fire as soon as I peak my head.

    Attacking dug-in germans?

    So that opening barrage I need soem TRP? What artillery would you advise? Also what soviet units can fire smoke? My infantry battalion mortars don't appear to carry smoke which is a real bummer. I wasted a number of tank shells creating smoke/dust in the middle of a field, alas my men retreated due to other fire unrelated to bunker.
  10. So I am new to multiplayer CM, and not used to picking units nor am I a very good player. Anyway I've played a few games now were I have trouble taking strategic forests where my enemy is dug in. In my current game the woods have numerous trench facing my spawn direction filled with nasty german troops. On the back side of the woods is a bunker that is covering my approach to the objective. Basically if I avoid the woods, I am mowed down by a bunker/MG42 on it's back side, which can see across the narrow map. However taking the woods has just forced my troops into full "rattled" and retreats. Is there particular equipment that is effecting in blasting through woods and trenchs? Also there is a huge variety of artillery which may have helped with the bunker (you can't see it until you are on the backside and pinned by a hail of bullets from various angles so there would be no spotting, TRP only) is certain artillery better for effectively penetrating forests? Demoralizing
  11. I'm going to shoot that chicken. I thought it meant the full version was up and ready.
  12. George MC and BarbaricCo, Are you guys using FXShine or War Movie mod standard presets or have you tweeked them from the standard downloads? The screen shots look amazing!
