  1. I love it too. One question , what does it do points wise to the final tally, kia, wia etc, I checked the manual but it didn't seem to clear. The only disadvantage i can see is if a squad has caused enemy casualties but is annihilated and then disappears through buddy aid you cant check their stats.
  2. Mine arrived Friday 27th (uk) no extra charges (brilliant) box in good condition (minor dent one corner all adds to the authenticity). Very happy . thx Battlefront. For those still waiting I received a shipped status on the 19th so about a week and a half.
  3. Again Thx for the help. Managed a TCP/IP connection today. I had to use a different ip address to the one the game said to use, finding that wasn't too difficult. I had to configure Windows firewall to allow the use of port 7023, again not hard. The most difficult part was configuring my router to allow 7023, but after that it worked. I used a port checker found via Google to establish that I had the port open when the game ran.
  4. Thx for the replies, ill try the ip site first as it was a 192.168 address that the game identified to use. I will then have a look at hamachi.
  5. I've tried to host a TCP/IP quick battle game with a friend but neither of us can connect. It stated 'waiting for conection' but nothing happend or if I try to join 'connecting' but we wait a couple of minutes and nothing happens. I have disabled my antivirus allowed the program through windows firewall tried to set the ports on my router for 7023 tcp & udp nothing worked so I then manually tried to configure ports in windows 7 for the game but still with no joy. Am I missing something obvious? Is anyone else having problems with this ? Any help much appreciated
  6. .......successfully wasted a couple of days discussing steel boxes, tax & imports its got to be time for..... (drum roll) THE DEMO RELEASE Come on BF today could be the day
  7. OK, after reading a shed load of posts in relation to import tax & charges one of the posts suggested checking online to see what you might get charged. So I did I have been to HM revenue and customs website http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/customs/post/internet.htm#1 I saw this My shoddy maths make me think $60 is roughly £36-£37 which at 20% VAT would be £7.40 just below the waiver figure. Fingers crossed Post office site states So Im going to be a ' my glass is half full ' person on this. Hope this info is A) Correct Useful c) isnt misleading
  8. A quick question which I may have missed, does BF send via a courier to the uk or by normal post? In the past I have received normal post avoiding the costs and via courier such as dhl, the couriers have always (as u would expect) had to pass on the extra tax/cost. With the post I might just win the lottery . One other question, did I read that the plan is for the modules to be shipped within the eu for international orders or am I wishful thinking, this has a bearing on canceling and going to download for me.

  10. Im afraid it is fair to be upset with battlefront. They clearly had an option to dispatch from within the EU and have done so before. Why would we think they wouldnt this time. They have had our money for a month and then on the eve of the release make it plain ie not just inside the small print - that it will be shipped from US with possible extra charges . Very Poor. No more pre-ordering for me.
  11. I noticed the Steel Books are low in stock and it has been annouced that now does this mean that NEW international pre-orders made after this announcement will be despatched from US or ALL international orders already received? it does state It's just not clear to me and I'll be mightly disappointed if I have to add another 20% to the price. That aside I havent been this excited since forever (over this release ) and my extreme patience - I have followed this website religiouslyfor years - has all but given up on me! Put us out of our misery please im begging.
