  1. I guess Steve needs to update the front page of the website. Looks like I'll be gone for a month or two.
  2. Game hasn't even been released yet and we've already got texture mods. I love you guys.
  3. The easiest way to clear enemy out of buildings is to apply high explosive to any and all suspicious rooms, floors, and doors.
  4. So you downloaded a fresh 2.10 installation? If you have your higher HQ's ride on the regimental command tank they can use the radios on the vehicle, but the rifle troop platoon leaders don't have radios themselves. Those silly soviets.
  5. It always displays them so long as your troops can see them. The bodies never disappear unless the enemy re-takes the position and performs buddy aid. Most likely the enemy exited the building and are now hanging around in the backyard, or they said, "Screw this!" and took off running somewhere else.
  6. Wrong. See above. Version 210a 210b 210c 210d 210e 210f 210g .brz files are not present in a version 2.02 installation. It is likely the planned base game patch would have included them, but is delayed. The README file for the installation download contains patch notes which specify to install over an existing 2.02 installation, and the patch contains the 210 files needed for the module. You will need to patch your game to 2.10 (when able) or install the patch installer downloadable given to you upon purchase of the module over your existing 2.02 installation to play Fire and Rub
  7. I know, right? People have been banging kitchen implements and screaming for years now. They're not going to wait a 'few more days'.
  8. So this is wrong by the way. The up to date version of the base game is currently 2.02, while the downloadable installation for Fire and Rubble is 2.10. Lemmie guess, the base game patch was supposed to be out at the same time?
  9. Context needed. What orders did you use? How far away was the shed? Did you recon by fire the field first? Did you pop any smoke? Did you split your squad into teams? Did you probe with one team first, then order the rest to follow? What is the location of the enemy? What direction is the squad taking fire from? Were they detected before you started your movement? What is the experience/morale of your men? What time of day is it? Did they eat lunch before setting off? Did you have a few beers before playing? The answers to these and many other existential ques
  10. You know, guys on the back side of sloped ground will stand up in order to see what's in front of them. I don't know what's worse, the complaint about your troops attempting to see what's directly in front of them, or the decision to place foxholes in a position that cannot see anything without standing up in the first place.
  11. I do believe Space Lobsters of Doom has pride of place as first in line of the fantasy/sci-fi Combat Mission titles.
  12. Here's another one. The tank platoon finally shows up. I'm going to have to ask him where he's been all day, and why my boys had to die because he wasn't there.
  13. Well I'll do the correct thing and buy it here, then activate it on steam. Then I'll buy a second copy on steam as a gift for a buddy of mine. Then I'll force him to play it.
  14. [whispers] Whisper whisper whisper. Sorry, I just wanted to get in on this action.
  15. @Warts 'n' allWould you feel better if I played as the Commonwealth in a battle? I do have a week of vacation coming up, I could make that happen.
  16. Sorry late reply, but I play GFO mod and the Narwhal is a separate mod given to Subsim Overlords and donators.
  17. I think this might be the longest running series on YouTube at this point. I just have little imagination.
  18. Before you go REEEEEE!!!!! Remember, this video is about the use of the ZF-41 as a SNIPING scope. It works perfectly fine as a regular optic. Just thought y'all might be interested.
  19. Most of the time I use bazookas, I usually hit something at least once before he runs out of ammo. The best use of them is from ambush, at short range, without using the Target command to force Tube Guytm to shoot when he doesn't want to. That being said, sometimes the guy just can't hit the broadside of a building 60 meters away. You gotta remember, it's basically a bottle rocket fired from a tube in terms of accuracy. The projectile is NOT stabilized in any way. It has fins, but relies on nothing more than aerodynamic forces to keep it pointed in the right direct
