INFANTRY WEAPONS

Interesting, I thought the M-47 dragon that we have in game only has the daysight and night sight (no thermals). How would the gunner see through smoke?

This is interesting. I guess the 1980 model is newer than the "normal", yet the former has the older ammonution.

What is the reason behind this?

I thought this was impossible 😛 (it is extended when fired)

Glad you managed it in the end. Hope it will get ported to CMBS / CMSF2

Is that a fix for the issue that contemporary ammo was used by accident?

IIRC, they said that is exactly what happened.

A typo in the patch readme, I presume.

From what I understand, they did some thinking-outside-the-box and labeled the extended tube a 'bipod' so so when the weapon is deployed the 'bipod' (e.g. extended tube) appears. One of those things that's obvious only after someone first thinks of it.

Do I need to restart a campaign if I’m in the middle of one and I install this?

I don't know the answer, but I would restart the last scenario regardless of the answer.

You can try saving during the plot phase and see if it continues after installing the patch. If it doesn't then open a Help Desk ticket and I'll get you reverted back so that you can finish the campaign if you want) before patching.

Thanks for the patch and post-release work on the game! I haven't gotten to play it as much as I want to, but I really love it.

Apologies if this is the wrong place to ask, but I have a small log of bugs or issues I've found and documented in the game (I did QA work in the past - it ruined me!). Is there a specific place or email address or maybe forum that I should submit the document to?

Great work - fantastic attention to detail and quickly issued too. Thanks for listening about the infantry light AT weapons (M72 and RPG-18), the new rendering makes much more sense. The new Soviet helmets are cool too!  Thanks to all involved, very much appreciated!

The AN/TAS 5 that is the Dragon night targeting system is a thermal sight.

Post them in this thread. Go slow, one by one, have savegames and wait for reactions before moving on. Don't "dump" large lists without interaction:

@BFCElvis: Stupid question: Should I see the V1.01 on the CW start screen?

Yes.

Make sure the patch didn't create a Cold War subfolder inside your main CW folder and put the .exe there. When I installed the patch it tried to do that. Meaning that when I pointed the patch to my D:\Cold War folder it tried to install to D:\Cold War\Cold War.
