    •   A lot of these positions were capable of 360 fire,  if you look at some of the fortifications around Metz, again for example,  many of them had overlapping fields of fire, so an argument could easily be made to put gun positions around the town that could be made to accommodate the guns in The manner you suggest. The whole idea behind the fortifications howeaver is that would be impervious to fire from the front, excepting for, say... HEAT from a sapper or perhaps 105mm direct fire HEAT or the 95mm CS HEAT round, or possibly HE charges from the rear, a gun pit is presently just a big target it’s realy easy to kill anAT gun in one
    • If you make to bootable thumb drive from the media creation tool
      and boot the PC from it, it will let you do a new installation that does not reformat the drive
      and parks the existing stuff in a windows.old folder.

      Which sometimes after a long string of patches just aint a bad thing
      fresh install from latest, clean drivers install and i am always amazed at how many old apps i really was not using and did not need.  
    • Yeah easiest fix for us and these dope heads take it out.  My PC knowledge is intermediate at best especially when it goes into the meat and potatoes aspect of it. If all else fails it off to geek squad or Milwaukee PC to get it fixed. 
    • Originally i do think the idea was that a player could take over control of an AI position, i remember discussion of it eons ago
      but i dont think anything ever happened back then to further it towards reality.

      I think short term what could be done is the structures built in a way that you can get ATGs in here, and you can park a tank in that, and you can roll an AA gun in this, which probably actually would not be so bad?

      You would have to use some creative license though, otherwise the thing would only be of use going East.
      So you would have to use a bit of liberties in design so that if axis hold the area, they can point some things West also
         
    • Yes, that later part, other games, like AH, you can man a fixed gun position and thiers a map that you select the gun you want, if it’s ocupied already it can’t be maned, So yes your idea is basically what I was thinking of, the guns would be built into the terrain and players would then select those positions to occupy. So Metz for example with all its forts would be a very interesting place to fight from, forts might be tied to CP’s and ownership could change...
