Reaction to the event is specified in <Reaction> string. Possible reactions are:

NONE - do nothing

PAUSE - pause the game automatically

MOVE - instantly move the camera to event location

PAUSE_AND_MOVE - pause the game automatically and instantly move the camera to event location (default setting).

For example, if you want the camera to move to immobilized tank, but don't want the switch on automatic pause, find the <Message> section with string <ID>Tankman_Damage_Engine</ID> and change the string <Reaction>PAUSE_AND_MOVE</Reaction> to <Reaction>MOVE</Reaction>:

<Message>

<ID>Tankman_Damage_Engine</ID>

<Icon>Icon_Engine</Icon>

<Object>OWNER</Object>

<Actuality_Time>60000</Actuality_Time>

<Actuality>TRUE</Actuality>

<Livetime_On_Minimap>10000</Livetime_On_Minimap>

<Priority>80</Priority>

<Color>GhostWhite</Color>

<Reaction>MOVE</Reaction>

</Message>

Memory compatibility mode

==================

If the game sometimes still crash during saving because of lack of allocated memory (this may happen on certain hardware configurations, especially if your OS is 32-bit Vista), you can turn on safer (but longer) save routine.

To do this, go to 'users' folder inside the game folder and edit game.ini file:

CompatibilityMode=1

(it's set to 0 by default). Please note that after that, calling menu during battle (by pressing Esc or menu button) will take several seconds and save procedure will be slightly longer.

I'm having a little problem with the memory compatibility mode:

I've been trying to edit the users/game.ini file to change the line CompatibilityMode=0 to CompatibilityMode=1, but there is no such line in my game.ini file.

there are only theses lines:

;INI File: users/game.ini

[game]

SmartPause=1

Does that mean that my patch installation is faulty? I checked in game, and the version number is the correct one, though: 1.10

or does that mean that I'm a bit thick, and that i simply have to had a line to have the game ini file read like this ? :

;INI File: users/game.ini

[game]

SmartPause=1

CompatibilityMode=1

I still can't launch options.exe ....

I know i can edit the ini files, but I don't wanna dig in there each time i want to change something. I get the hour-glass for a second, when I try to launch options.exe, but nothing happens, the options window won't come up. (.NET installed)

So does anyone else have this problem?

Sneaksie! :)

I do have that problem also. The odd thing is that I am using Windows XP (SP3) Home edition...
