Face (G) problem


Recommended Posts

CMBN 4.02.

I was playing a battle last night, and some of my units lost the ability to Face(G).  One was 4th Platoon leader unit way in the back with the mortars under no fire and no danger that I could see.  I could tell it to move in all the normal ways, but not Face (G).  A couple of other units also lost the Face ability.

Am I missing something obvious?

Were you able to use the face command on some units and not others? Were the affected units infantry or vehicles or both?

Did you try other scenarios or did it only happen in that one? Which battle was it and was it singleplayer or multiplayer?

Was the game in realtime or turn based?

Infantry, only a few units, not most.

Single player wego in two scenarios so far.  Pleasant walk in woods (4th platoon hq) and Out on a limb (platoon hq and 3rd squad).

Maybe not related, but also 3rd Squad cannot be split or divided.

A misfeature, I would say.

Perhaps but I doubt it will be changed.

If you want to control facing and have a cover arc you can use a wedge arc - the unit will "face" the centre of the wedge. Once the unit is done moving and facing the way you want you can replace it with a circular cover arc.
