  1. Here's a document for a more realistic OOB for Berlin'85 based on my research that I made a couple of years ago, which will give you a broad strokes look at the Berlin forces. stoss-revised.pdf
  2. Man, some people get worked up over the smallest of things. BFC will announce a date; check in on that date, if the game's out, buy it; If it's not, check in again on the revised date. In the meantime do something else. Life goes on.
  3. Quick question, my CMSF installs were about 2 & 3 computers ago and I was never able to deactivate either of them. IIRC, we had 2 installs for our license then it got locked. Will I need to get my licenses unlocked before I try to install CMSF2?
  4. Doug: http://www.multimanpublishing.com/Support/ASLASLSK/ASLOfficialDownloads/tabid/109/Default.aspx Download the classic pack, it's in there, Scenario A. Apologies to BFC if this is considered a commercial link.
  5. The artist, Peter McIntyre, was the Official War Artist of the 2NZEF, and,iirc, went out on a patrol with the LRDG. So he was painting from life.
  6. A lot of photos I've seen of the British troops at Husky, most of them are tanned from the North African sun.
  7. Is that a car radio and cd player in the top of the instrument panel?
  8. If you pull his tail, will he show his teeth?
  9. Title says it all, if you are a mac user and want to have a copy, I have one gamersgate key to give away. PM me your email, first in-first served. I got given a pc and mac key from doing a survey and since I don't have a mac, one of you guys from the dark side is welcome to it.
  10. Great game, Great UI, Awesome AI. They've also opened up the unit data so now everything is moddable. I managed to wangle a free copy of BFTB as I did the Google Earth tour but I still would have paid for it. The HTTR expansion is well worth it also IMHO.
  11. Google Xenonauts for a very classy Indie version. Currently in alpha, the ground combat is playable and I'm loving it.
  12. Damn, the frogs are having some luck at moment.A crappy ref call, 28 phases and no attempt at a droppy.Reminds me of a certain game in Cardiff..
  13. Hehe, you'd better be careful, you're starting to sound like an AB's fan. The ref in the AB v puma has been abysmal.As he was in the Samoa SA game. One of the TV commentators was hoping for an Wales win next week so this ref won't be involved in the final.
  14. Lucky Bugger.I went to the Scotland v Argentina game at the caketin a couple of weeks ago.Got wet but great game.Paid $30 for 4 beers though but luckily got an extra freebie when a can rolled down to my feet from up high.
  15. Since you're using Paint.net, i'll show you how using that and a little program called AlphaConv. Using the magic wand tool select the area you want to make transparent: Then delete the selected area: Then save as a 32-bit png: Now open up AlphaConv and drag the png file onto the AlphaConv window. note the settings for AlphaConv: Now your icon should have a transparent background: (The edges are still a bit rough, you might have to use some anti-aliasing there and I had to assign the icon to the infantry as I don't have the shilka) And that's one way you can do it. (smiley deleted as it exceeds image limits,lol)
