  1. Rattler

    Any CPXs?

    working on one, will probably publis it here and on TO list after Rikki left as I want to bounce it back from him first. Rattler

    What is cpx

    to get you an idea of the type games umpires create und run, and how versatile a CPX can be you may want to take a look at my AAR collection of CPXs: http://www.eventfoto.com/privat/mil/aars/cpx_aars.html Rattler
  3. you might also want to check oout the forum at XtremeGamers http://www.gamesquad.com/forums/tacops/ Rattler
  4. agent smith: None, really. Rattler P.S.: the post above was sent by Henk Stoffers while he was visiting me this week, but I concur, welcome tb87670 (no name to this call sign?)
  5. hi, Welcome on board. Most of the veterans will check this board regularly. If you have questions or just ask,most of the time someone will respond. henk
  6. Dont be intimidated: We old farts tend to not see the wood because of all the trees, so fresh impressions are alway welcome, the list is *really* newbie friendly... Even if you screw up big time (which I and all did a few times) you will not get any flaming, just a mild "redirection" advice... :-> QUOTE]Originally posted by Agent Smith: - snip- I've never actually seen a 'how-to' about the procedure for contibuting to the mail. I'm sure it's as easy as replying to the email, but again, polls are generally conducted at SZO/ EG and the forum thread there seems better populated than her
  7. Folks, thoroughly enjoyed yesterdays CPX, especially going back to back as buddys with my longest standing PBM opponent, Rikki... :-> As far as sceanrio is concerned, while giving a tk coy to each player makes for learning the basics, in way of organizing battle, planning (and be it ad hoc) and tactical lessons it doesnt serve for too much: No recon, no sensible battle.... IMHO forces should always be combined of inf, tks, missiles and air and arty, so, to keep it simple i would recommend using cav troops in the future instead of tk coys: Same amount of workload but adds the tactical ele
  8. Well, the tacops IRC server at schlepper defaults to 7024... :-> We are here, waiting...
  9. TacOps uses port 7023, IRC 7024
  10. well, folks, if you need to chose players, here my email: rattler_at_eventfoto_dot_com Any job, any side. Let me know the time this thingy is planned in GMT please so i can set my alarm clock... :-> Rattler
  11. I am, more so today (San Valentin)... :-> She has been successfully operated last Friday and is at home and fine, doing the easy house workl like sewing and cooking, I take care of the rest. She explicitly approved, so rest assured there wont be any attacks on the net that day... :-> Rattler
  12. Dont know whether I have mentioned in another forum, but I am there if you want me. Rattler
  13. Just checking, after not having seen any reply since 10 days...: SigzLV596: Did this reach you? Rattler
  14. This said, and after reviewing the replays, I think BLUE can almost not win this against a human opponent with red having thermals. Rattler
  15. I played it a quicky first time ever today with 65% exit taking out 96% of OPFOR. Replays here: http://www.eventfoto.com/privat/mil/dls/autos_hurley.zip I think key is having good javelin overwatch, once the town is taken then smoke, and air recon (you got plenty) to find the ambushes (if any). NOTE: air recon doesnt see anything in smoke (ran in an ambush because of that). From Game Status you have a good idea what the oppnent has left and can plan accordingly. Rattler
