OK the prob is with the mission itself ( Bulldog_2 ) , it crashes when loading it into the mission editor so can't fix it or even try. When it crashes during loading in the campaig itself, it creates a mission.bad xml file so it needs fixing somewhere. I was actually editing the Cheux mission before ( was having a *duh* moment lol ).

mission editor exception:

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

OK 2 things, well 3 things really:

1) the m3a3 half track by the piat teams has no ammunition. ( bulldogs_1 )

2) All the units make me lag so that leads me to #3

3) going to reduce the main battle units a wee bit while keeping balance for the missions as I play them. Then I'll upload the adjusted campaign for you if you'd like and you can use that modified campaign version for peeps to play who have average or lower systems. This way they can also enjoy the campaign. Also the timer for the Jagpanther attack on the player's HQ position should have 30 more seconds to 1 minute added onto it. It would allow you a tiny bit more time to get somewhere while not taking away from the 1st mission. Just a suggestion.

Will post on bulldogs_2 once I've played it. Nice job though I'm having fun ;)

If you'd like I could also beta test beta 3 for ya before release. I don't mind helping.

One thing I should let people know is that B3 will be completely different in one important respect. That's that there are no deployment group forces i.e. only reserves. For those who wonder WTF I'm talking about :), that means that you get a bunch of points & then have to choose the units you want to take to battle from the units menu, you choose 100% of your force from what is available from previous battle & new from this one. I think this, combined with the random unit generation keeps the missions fresh in that you can play the missions multiple times & not get the same opposition every time in the same place. To my mind this makes you play more tactically which is where the game shines the most.

BTW Petrus I can't make this mission crash except for some reason if I move people between units before starting the mission. Please post a log file so we can seen where your copy decides to crap out.

I found some improvement in the framerate.

I reset the settings on my ATI X1900XT to the "Factory Defaults" and the mission is playable.

Now I have to figure out how to win the first mission. First try at it I manned two of the artillery pieces and did quite well until one of them took a direct hit and the gun and crew were wiped out. I dragged the remaining one around hunting disabled enemy armour but lost a couple men to snipers and was soon down to two men.

Any hints?
