  1. Yes, reviewing the turn it seems that the shell passed through the roof. My tank could also spot the panther as well. The turn can be downloaded here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/c0yyx5a04hzbr01/Assault at Huberderie 055.ema?dl=0 pw: get216
  2. Hi, I just encountered this during a PBEM game, I tried to hide my tank behind a barn but the enemy panther managed to not only spot it, but also put a hole in it as well. I have the PBEM turn if needed. Here are some screenshots: https://ibb.co/5T97Gnb https://ibb.co/nc8ygy6 I am very curious as to how this happened.
  3. Didn't you guys not release a patch for Shock Force 2?
  4. Well it sure stuck in my mind
  5. Just want to highlight again that scenario has a duplicate paragraph. In case you ever want to fix the briefings. Again, don't mind. The briefings are not better or worse than the other games.
  6. "Killing time at Kirtof" has a repeated block of text. Can't copy it here because the game does not allow for copy-paste. My 2 cents is that I don't care really. I do know that the game was delayed to get all the details right, and if it's important to have polish to the game, then the briefing texts are part of that. But again, I don't care, just as I don't care that the pouches are not entirely correct on the soldier models :)
  7. Just wanted to add that it might help to lower the graphics quality when this issue comes up
  8. Having an admin account is not about trusting the people you live with. It's about denying applications being able to make changes to important settings on your computer without your explicit permission. Many other OS's including mac and linuxes require you to enter a password before installing new software. It does offer complete protection of course, but it eliminates a bunch of them :).
  9. A lot of people use their admin account as their everyday. Only explanation I can think off. Once the steam version is out this will be auto resolved
  10. @Thomm I had the same issue. My guess is you installed the game as a super user and are running your game as a regular user. The battle and the game files are should be located under C:\Users\<your admin users>\Documents\Battefront\Combat Mission\Cold War Simply copy those files over to the same location for your regular user and you are good to go!
  11. For now making sure that firefox and spotify are not running seems to be working. Hopefully that's the fix.
  12. I tried again today to see might be causing the issue. I first tried to record my actions with fraps, but in six attempts I tried the file generated correctly. I then realized I did not have firefox and spotify running. So what I did was start firefox, go to youtube and leave video on pause. I also started spotify and left it on pause and went in to the game. The first time I tried to generate the file, the file was truncated (attempt 7) and the second attempt the game just crashed. I know that both firefox and spotify have hardware rendering and I wonder whether that might interfere with the game. I will try to see if I can narrow it down.
  13. Too bad you weren't able to reproduce it. You did more less what I did, the only difference is I moved the camera quite a bit and I am running the steam version with no mods. I checked the system resources and the system is barely under load, even under heavy load I would expect the file to be ok even if it takes longer. Appreciate you taking the time to look at it.
  14. The bad turns cannot be opened, as the game crashes during loading, so no need for the opponents' password. If you see the password prompt then it worked, otherwise the game crashes. I just tried it again replaying that turn, the first time I gave no orders and the turn was generated fine, the second time I called in a fire mission using the forward observer with the UAV and the output turn was not fine. So I think if you just give some orders and replay the turn 10 times you should see the corruption at least once. Here is a link to the files (the scenario, a specs file, the original turn, the turn that was generated properly and the turn that was corrupt):https://www.dropbox.com/sh/3crnrz4yjoatjgm/AACoSEWZFeXGGYSNP-ReTgtla?dl=0 I will DM you the password. I hope this helps.
  15. Just to be clear. What you want is a PBEM file from which you can try and reproduce the problem? I have such a file, and I can provide it to you now without having to involve my opponent. Note that the issue is not consistent, if we keep trying long enough eventually the game will give us the correct file. If it's imperative that we follow your procedure exactly I will need to coordinate with my opponent. I understand that resources are limited, but it would be good to be able to have it looked at.
  16. Update, since the last turn it's been impossible to get a correct turn written to disk. Whitelisting the folder does not help. @Schrullenhaft any other ideas? Can you do anything with the files? Or is there a place to report bugs, because right now I can't continue the PBEM game.
  17. I assume the previous reply was meant for me. I can confirm that this has nothing to do with focus. In fact the last time it worked was when I accidently alt+tabbed. I believe this is a bug in the game, as I have vague recollection this happening in the original shock force as well. I extend my offer to provide files if this helps the debug process.
  18. We solved it by replaying the turn, for now it's not a big deal because at least on my end the orders are not complicated, but I assume that as the game progresses this will become more and more annoying. Are there any logs we can capture should we happen on this again? Or can you guys try and figure it out without our help? I have the scenario and turns if needed.
  19. I am currently playing a large CMBS game via PBEM. The turns generated are around 50 MB in size and both me and my opponent have had PBEM files generated which are significantly smaller than the expected 50 MB, rather they are only around 1 MB. We both have beefy machines and I checked the resource tab of my PC (Windows 10) while the file is being written and I still have plenty of resources left. Is this a known issue?
  20. It still mentions the first trimester is this year, but then again I am not good with codes
  21. That is correct, I think in the video there is an instance the LOS is checked and you can see the line being drawn from the vehicle.
  22. Have you seen this video already? I find this a clear explanation: https://youtu.be/ahCRncgVrqA?list=PLYvL90uFbwhOsyXZJ0wWuRdqLWIv1Bj6e&t=167 As for the LOS tool, it always starts from the unit, but actually gives you information on the LOS from the "white ball". One of those game quirks you quickly get used to.
