Group Select

Just fired up v3.0, and I can't group select all the units in the setup box to join or unload anymore. I'm sure I was able to do this in earlier versions, but now it tells me I can't join unlike units, and won't unload anything if a selected unit has no passengers. It's not that big of a deal I guess, but it is going to take a lot longer to set up a large scenario like Nelson if every unit must be selected in turn to unload it. Thanks for any help you can provide.

You can't join unlike units. If you select a group of units and then try to join them, the routine will stop as soon as it finds an illegal matchup.

As for group selecting and unloading - I just tried it and it worked for me.

I'm sure in the older versions you could select *all* of the units in the setup box, and then unload them. Now nothing happens. Same with the join command - all the units would join with appropriate units, and I could then split them individually as I saw fit.

I'll maybe load up an old version just to make sure.

Ok, just tried it with TacOps Classic - If I group select all of the units in TF Miz., and select unload from the menu, they will all unload. If I then drag a box around them all (lots of units now) again and select join from the menu, they will all group together like they should, and I end up with about 33 unit icons.

To accomplish the same thing now will take quite a while longer, as I have to search through the setup box and shift-click on all units of the same type, and then tell them to join.

Like I said, it's not that big of a deal, but it isn't something I would think needed changing.

Thanks again

Craig

ps. I just discovered that if you group select all units and then split them, they will all unload then.
