  1. Yeah well I was trying to get him to fire smoke because he was down to 2 AP rounds and he needed to get out of there. But it turned out he was in a good hull down position in rocks and the Russians just kept bouncing rounds off of him until the scenario ended. The covered arc strategy sounds like a good idea, though - I'll try that next time.

  2. I'm in a battle where I have a PZIIIn in a good hull down position on a rocky slope. After several turns I'm almost out of AP ammo. This tank has 8 smoke shells, but every time I give the orders to fire smoke so he can move out of there he just ignores the comand and keeps firing regular shells. Why won't he fire the smoke?

  3. I was playing a scenario Vs the AI yesterday. There was a minefield next to 2 houses that were occupied by 2 of my squads. I ordered another one of my pioneer squads to advance to the next house up the road. So as they are advancing past the mine field, they chuck a satchel charge at it. Boom! It destroyed the minefield plus the two occupied houses my squads were in. Then when they got to the next house, they threw another charge out the window at a nearby enemy trench and blew the house down on themselves. What the? How do you control how these bozos use charges?

  4. I'm new to this game and am playing my first operation as the Germans. I keep getting stuck in this same situation and was wondering how to overcome it. I move up to a point at the edge of a clearing where a russian MG opens fire on me from a well placed foxhole, usually from higher ground with good LOS. My platoon can't rush him - too much open ground to cross. I can't get a LOS to him with my 50 mm mortar crew without them getting spotted and shot at. I don't have any smoke. I can't use tanks for fear of hidden 45 mm AT guns. What do you guys do in situations like this? There's a tool for everything on the battlefield but I don't know what it is. Thanks! P.S. - I tried the links on tactics in the newbies post above but they aren't working.

  5. Hmmmm...Ok I've been trying CMBB - the first scenario I tried was "Assault on Kamienka" as the Germans. It was, indeed, no fun. Well, I didn't know what I was doing. I had to draw fire in order to even find the Russians, and they let me have it. Can somebody refer me to some good basic strategy posts?

    The graphics look great up really close but from a more meaningful view (the one you have to use to give orders) the buildings and vehicles look blotchy.

    Two other things bother me: You can't press "esc" to go to windows like CMBO and you can't make multiple saves of the same game? It won't let me save the game with a name I choose so i just have to save over what was already saved. Unless I'm doing it wrong.
