  1. Especially if they camp in a great overwatch position and don’t move again.
  2. I just finished this scenario. It was great fun and early on, when my TOWs, Dragons and M60s were having no effect on the T-64s I thought I was in all sorts of trouble. But I managed to ambush the main BMP force once they had crossed the river and then manoeuvred an open flank to avoid the overwatching T-64 that still took out an M-60 in the last 5 minutes. I swear I hit a couple of those T-64s with at least 1 TOW, 2 Dragons and a number of M60 rounds and they were still shooting back and taking out my M60s with their first shot. Tactical victory
  3. Hi IanL, This sounds similar to my issue which is still ongoing sadly.
  4. In Fleeing Altdorf the game crashes on me at the 25 minute mark at the end of the action phase when I click to shift to orders phase. It happened pre-patch (was the second scenario I played) and I assumed the patch would fix it so I patched then opened the saved game and it did it. Thought, ok I'll start a new game with the patched version and it happened again. On a Mac - upgraded yesterday to Big Sur 11.4 Fleeing Altdorf 001.bts
  5. I just had a Dragon hit and destroy a BMP frontally and also destroy the BMP parked right next to it. #winning
  6. WTII isn't working for me any more - not sure if it is the latest Java upgrade or the Big Sur upgrade. It opens and does its thing but I can't interact with it - it won't let me select the menu or right click within the screen. If another window is open it won't even come to the front when I command-tab to it. Anyone else having a similar issue? I uninstalled and reinstalled Java, haven't tried that with WTII yet. Any update on the update @IanL?
  7. German Leopard 1s British Infantry Base Game M113s Sounds like the Australian Army wouldn’t be too far away.
  8. TacOps used to allow you to set SOP per unit. IIRC the options were: Stop, reverse & pop smoke (or a combination) if spotting an enemy or if fired upon.
  9. I had my M113 go head to head with a BMP at about 500m and only lost the gunner ... Also my M60A2s are 3 and 0 against the T72s. Between two fahrbahns is a fun start.
  10. Hmm didn't want to verify it but will let me install it. Lucky I trust you Elvis!
  11. I'm on a Mac and it won't verify the installer package ... Redownloading it now.
  12. Typical - you send an important email and people only read the first line ...
  13. Check out Bil’s blog: https://battledrill.blogspot.com He has some good introductory tactics tutorials focussed on Combat Mission.
  14. Thought it would be good to start a thread with recommended reading on the era to get prepared for release. I'm interested in more entry level stuff on the weapon systems, TOEs and doctrinal changes occurring in the period but I'm sure others would have different interests.
  15. Just to be clear - it has been fellow SAS soldiers who have spoken up about the behaviour of their colleagues.
  16. OMG I’ve been playing this game for over 10 years and almost every time I play it I think to myself “I wish there was a select last unit” hotkey
  17. I just got a new MacBook Pro and am wondering how people keep their saved games synced across multiple computers? I use Dropbox & Whose Turn Is It for my PBEM games. It would be great if you could select the location of the saved game folder.
  18. Is there an ‘idiots guide’ explainer on how to do this somewhere?
  19. Yeah my credit card was cancelled due to fraudulent activity over the weekend (and I'm in Australia). I bought SF2 when it launched. Interestingly the guy from the bank had a chuckle because the 'small test charge' of $1 was put through as "test only". He said they aren't normally dumb enough to name it that.
  20. I can't get any mods working on my Mac. In both BN & BS I have them in Contents/Resources/Data/Z SF doesn't have a /Data folder so I created one, didn't work. I put Z in the resources folder, didn't work. I put it in the Content folder, didn't work. I'm trying to load Bil's floating icons. *edit* found it, it is outside of the package content inside the application folder.
  21. I was playing ‘the Bank’ and had a Section in the buildings on the right main avenue of approach two buildings before the embassy objective. I gave the section an assault command to move into the adjacent building (the one directly adjacent to the embassy). It was a move to the adjacent action square. The first fire team went out the side door and entered the side door of the building and met no resistance. The second fire team went out the front door, onto the main avenue, and took 2 or 3 casualties from fire down the street. Then proceeded to enter the front door of the target building. Thereby going a longer route, into a easily recognisable kill zone, where I hadn’t ordered them to go.
