  1. Can not connect to database. Please check database access information. ???? guess you will have to wait
  2. just though of a feature for a more candy turn review toggle key on/off to visual aids (i.e.- base markers, occupied translucend buildings)
  3. UPDATE on SturmPanzer IV Brummbär (mid) "not selectable by clicking in the 3D model"...guess related, if you you move away from it, at certain distance, more or less the same distance where some other models loose the shadow and become bright (or the other way around depending where the sun is), the Brummbär (mid) 3D model vanished, leaving just the commander floating in the air...
  4. Already on it. g41...same issue...but new to F&R...loving it... @t34577685in the intering give a try to the mods of @Frenchy56 , both issues visually corrected nicely
  5. @Frenchy56And now in F&R...you save me twice today....
  6. I would try a fresh new install if I were you
  7. 1.-pzgr batt 44 (as I said is old) and Kampfgruppe (just check 1co 1st squad Hq) 2.-all "pzgr" formations...weird enough even in the motorized, who don't take the appearence themselves, the team attached (AufK team) all change the appearance but one member who keeps the standar (same, checked on 1sco 1st squad)
  8. @JM Stuffit is just below the king tiger...where the sturmtiger also is (but if exchanged with another mdr is not going to be the same BOOOM)...🙉 the bmps (including the heer one) are in the flavour objects folder @kohlenklauyours is a good job (great)..as Newton said...I'm on the shoulders of gigants...
  9. maybe thats why the diver could not dismount...didn't check the passangers yet... tooo busy playing....
  10. by the way...more than 3 passangers and one ends up into the trunk (not exactly...) in the editor you could dismount the driver...🙃
  11. I think this is not a new one, happened to me before F&R...if on your side just delete waipoint and trace new ones (usually happens in my end if the crossing waypoint was too near the bridge) if on the enemy the only solution I did found was...save on command and load...but not always works on the first save, and sometimes didn't work at all talking of old ones: 1.- Heer formation PzGr (never test on motorized) the jr officer of the platoon decided to wear a NCO uniform but shows the Lieutenat rank on the ui. still with us 2.- teams attached to a Herr formation (again PzGr) one (maybe more?) of the units decide not to wear the panzergrenadier appearence uniform and use the standar (on standar and mixed cammo it is unnotizable ). still with us 3.- dont now if related to the above crossing bridge one and don't tested yet on F&R, also maybe related to a waypoint too near the bridge (thing that Ilearned to avoid but...sometimes..), if a infantry squad or team is ordered to cross, sometimes one of them refuses or starts running in opposite direction, same solution as above...never see it happening on the opposing side. as said...not tested yet on F&R and the new ones, all found on editor while looking at the beauties: 4.- Already mentioned in another place. SturmPzIV early not selectable by clicking (icon and kb + -, working perfectly) 5.- hatch covers disconected from hull while oppened on various new vehicles and missing on PzIIIG (IIRC)
  12. @Frenchy56...waiting for your m43 caps...I've done mine but when triying to put some silver piping for officers i turned it back to standar...windows paint is not the tool....
  13. the opel mdr from vehicles module works....you have to get its textures from the flavour objects folder...(even there is a heer one) I test exchange gaz for it, rides nicely, but somehow the crew is refusing to dismount...so I guess the Hiwi driver is wondering how to open the doors...or I messed sth. Waiting for all your good work!!! (Hungarians...a new life for the volksurm maybe?)
  14. @Battlefront.com all all the staff...This game is incredible...is amazing...it is the game I have always wanterd...brings me back does memories of when I do first discover some small company that got a game call CMBO and I decided to give it a try... on the time that any penny in my pocket counts...this is mind blowing..with the atmosphere, the big and small toys, the ANYTHING it get... I guess i'm becoming insane!! i have just found myself literally crying of joy...just thinking that even it can be improved with upgraded engine #5 and my brain goes nuts...
  15. 🙊 ...and beutepanzers?.... 🙈
  16. Guderian: Panzer Pioneer or Myth Maker? By Russell A. Hart. Washington: Potomac Books, 2006. ISBN 1-57488-810-2 After the Second World War, how the English-speaking world looked at the war was shaped by a number of influential memoirs penned by former German officers. Among the more notable of these were Erich von Manstein's Lost Victories (aka Boy, Was I Brilliant) and F. W. von Mellenthin's Panzer Battles. Few were more influential, however, than Heinz Guderian's Panzer Leader. Published in Germany in 1951 under the title Erinnerungen eines Soldaten, Guderian's memoir was translated into English and published the following year as Panzer Leader. The book proved remarkably influential in shaping perceptions as to how the German Army created its panzer arm, and Guderian's role in that process. This perception was aided by the publication, especially in the United States, of numerous books on the German Army and Air Force written by people who did not read German, or were unfamiliar with the German document collections at the U.S. National Archives. Over the past twenty years, however, the image of Guderian as the premier armor theorist in the interwar German Army has been attacked by a number of military historians in this country, including Williamson Murray, James Corum, Robert Citino, and this reviewer. The latest work in this effort is Russell A. Hart's monograph on Guderian. In its essence, Hart's book is a sustained attack on Guderian's reputation as a military theorist, field commander, and, especially, as a memoirist. Hart suggests that, while Guderian was an important armor theorist, he was by no means the only one and that Guderian's stature as Germany's premier armor theorist rested on his self-serving memoir. As a field commander, Hart argues that Guderian's successes from 1939 to 1941 were as much a matter of luck as of skill. Finally, Hart repeatedly shows where Guderian fibbed in his memoir. In regard to Guderian's relationship with the Nazi regime, Hart suggests that Guderian was less a Nazi than a "Hitlerite." While Guderian was very much an ardent right-wing nationalist, he never bought into Nazi ideology. Rather, he was personally beholden to Hitler, who was supportive of Guderian, and who gave him, like every other German general, sizeable bribes to insure loyalty. Hart uses contemporaneous documents to show where Guderian was putting forth outright lies in his memoirs. More commonly, he shows where Guderian conveniently forgot to mention any number of things, such as Hitler's bribes, that would have been rather embarrassing, to say the least. The monograph does have its problems. Hart's criticisms at times can be too sweeping. Granted, Guderian's career as a field commander was marked by sheer good fortune. This, however, can be said of just about every successful field commander. Likewise, Hart suggests that Guderian's criticism of the reorganization of German panzer divisions in 1941 has been uncritically accepted by "virtually every military historian." To back this claim, however, Hart cites only one work. This suggests that the book was written in a bit of a hurry. This monograph is certainly not the definitive biography of Guderian, and I do not think the author had that goal in mind. As a corrective to one of the more mendacious memoirs of the Second World War, Hart's work clearly hits the mark. Richard DiNardo U.S.M.C. Command and Staff College Quantico, Virginia
  17. 😲...nope...the mild steel sturmtiger is the one in Pz.Erst.Abt.500 (the GuBeisem one, wich was used for testing, calibrating the new gun and so) not the ones in 1000 K.p or 1001K.p. doubt I could prove with evidences nbr2 in my live...even if it is quite clear that you didn't send monsters like those at the Decebren front for shightseeing...so till here the discusion...enriching somehow... By the way, there is some photo over there showing the Kubinka sturmtiger on the train along the big one in their trip to russia
  18. if of any help I did found this...as some kind of source to reconfirm my undestanding of it being attached to 109Pz Brg... althought it refer the hungarians excursionists to 1000 K.p., which lost one before its Ardenes show...so consistent with the transport tracking... https://tanks-encyclopedia.com/ww2/nazi_germany/sturmtiger.php PS.- @ASL Veteran, now is only one...but remenber it has the value of more than two Elephants, why did i give up so quickly on the Warsaw one?...😋
  19. Sure it is...and I do love it.. In fact I'm not talking about just one, I'm talking about three sturmtigers being actively used in the Eastern front, the one in Warsaw (that could be the mild steel one, it could be so even if BF refered to it we could discard it if you like), then we got the one in Hungary that some sources refer it was attached to the 109 Pz-Brigade Feldherrnhalle that was fightin in the area near Nyékládháza and was nearly depleted, even giving its remaining spw to the 23 PzD.... and finally, the one captured by the russians at Regezen, to the West of Brandenburg, thanks a lot to dbsapp for the traslation (it should be nbr.-250043 or 205543 depending on the source...wonder if the numbering issue have sth to be with them being "canibalized" Tigers) and if nbr 250043 is correct then it "could be" that 12th army recived whatever rest of the 1001 as part of the remanents of the 11th Army and alike formations...don´t know and I guess not much info on that days but maybe AKD got something ...>>>>too late..this guy rocks...thanks @akd...Anything on the lost track in Hungary one?
  20. Really, are you serious...did I insult sb?...don't think so...and not to AKD or ASL for sure even if i do disagree strongly with their aproach...one cause aproach like "I know better, and you have to prove it" and the other cause just want to proof I'm mistaken...and easy task by the way...and that AKD, who is a living souce on ww2 had proved it already to me in few days ago...I do seriusly enjoyed the discussion about captured russian smg and ejoyed it a lot...and learned even more. looking at the post you are attaching i guess somebody that had a point on using a poor friend sickness to sent somehow, or imply, a message to somebody, or some other intention I could not fairly see, so as I really did not get the gallantry of that act and as all of us are a little bit crazy I just recomend friendly to him to visit an specialist, thats all. if you are thinking on my reference to the lost education, well maybe is better if I explain it a little bit, i did mean that his aproximation to the reason of elefants are in and sturmtigers out its not passing a simple calculation...2 of 91 is a 2.2%...just 1 of 19 is a 5% (and there were traces of 4, 2 almost confirmed by now actively acting inthe eastern front)...not to talk about weigth of shells or explosives...(1 shoots is around 35 times in weight that of the 88s,w of explosives around 100 times?) If after the evidence they themselves have thrown of the captured sturmtiger with the translation of the russian nicely done by dsap, (wich was the same photo I initially posted with wrong references I asumed, and was lectured that photos are somehow not a valid reference) and the transportation record of two tigers (which I was iguess mistakenly acussed of witholding ¿? to be told inmediatly that he got that source), and being none of those two the GuBeisem Sturmtiger (wich was other of the great arguments gaily throw here by someone) and one allegillaby remaining in Hungary (that of course, cause it goes against sb point of view, surely was a mistaken on the record...you known anybody could miss one Sturmtiger while counting two) I guess we will surely convince anyone that the sturmtigers weren't in the eastern front, or that they where not that relevant just by telling those arguments time and again...you know...at least BF said that if he recall it correctly just one and that it just shoot 7 times , quite more educated approach...so know we got 2 confirmed the BF and the Kubinka ...the 10% of the production..ah!....and one on vacations on Hungary in October 44 that we don't know were it have ended..and you are asking for sources...well...guess no more is needed Please, do not heasitate to contact BF if you see somebody trasspasing the line...I have myself done it in the past to stop some hot stuff around. thank you for the intention of your lecturing...but I do not think is applicable...not here and not to those respecfull gentlemen (me insulting AKD...you must be really kidding my friend...he had prove me he is quite a source on ww2 Heer with just one conversation...when I or sb else post I'm waiting his reply to learn....ASL..well...not any firm opinion yet at least not as strong as mine with AKD, but never this could mean I do not respect him and even maybe played some of his scenarios...but I'm quite special on that regard and always modify everything to my like so didn't followed him on that matter)
  21. so you are like your friend...but instead of beliving in flying saucers you belive there were no sturmtigers in the east of the Elbe...go to see a doctor and safe your sanity...cause about your education i guess now it is too late to save it
  22. 200...never in my live thougth I will be posting 200 things...time to go back to live...
