  1. Am away for three whole months (and probably a bit more). I know Poker will automatically think "prison sentence" but I am innocent of nearly everything. Am away on an extended holiday getting some sunny sun in Greece and aiming to come back fitter and hotter than ever. Good luck to all. Win the next one without me. Keep on at the Rats about Axis Overpop.
  2. Congrats to Poyet for promotion to Lt Colonel.
  3. Man oh Man ---- yeah we want you back!
  4. And we welcome back IMPALA76 for another tour of duty!
  5. Gonna be away Tues to Thurs - campaign is great. Lots of good, hard-fought battles. Hope to see some more of you soon
  6. Any advice on the best joystick for playing this game? My Logitech Extreme was great but now has gone crazy on me - never stops turning making driving, viewing or firing impossible. I had a Saitek one before that which was way too sensitive. Any advice very welcome. Thanks
  7. New patch now available
  8. This appears to be one of those CRS specials which one gasps at. I checked the ftp site and there is no mac patch for 1.34.9. So we are all farked until somebody at CRS gets their act together. Don't hold your breath. ftp://downloads.wwiionline.com for those who care to check. Incidentally I find downloading from this site a LOT more reliable than the patch update mechanism.
  9. I had a big drop in performance yesterday. Can't get on today because no mac patch available!

  11. Or maybe you got lucky those six times! You could rename yourself to lucky6. Or unlucky7. I get this bug and I have a Case Sensitive system. Sometimes it works straight away and other times it can be 4 or 5 times before I get on.
  12. Interesting but it might not be the case sensitive formatting. The erase of the disk might have deleted something that was contributing to (or causing) the problem.
  13. What you all complaining about? The latest production update says "the game is running smoothly"
  14. Welcome to mac. You won't go back.
  15. I had a big drop while I had settings based on best quality. I dropped down to balanced performance and my fps regained most of its former strength, most of the time, at the expense of some immersive features. I can live with it though so am reasonably happy after my initial frustration.
  16. Most of my squad are well fed up because of the dramatically lower fps. I hope that some solution can be found because if the cost of pretty uniforms is this low level of performance then the price is way too high. It will cost in subscribers. Much more I could say but I am trying to keep a lid on my frustration!
  17. Now I am puzzled. Is it right that if I can only kill things that are visible to me there must be a maximum height above which it is impossible to kill anything when bombing? Is it also the case that when I try to hit an atg whose muzzle flash I can see that this is a pointless exercise if the atg itself is not visible to me? Other examples like this eg tank mg fire into inf spawns in an ab from distance. And what if I can see them and they can't see me?
  18. 13th rocking this campaign. Come join the fun
  19. Might want to look at the new Trackpad as well if you get hold of one. I got it to work acceptably most of the time but it isn't perfect. Appreciate the work you put in. Thanks.
  20. So I download 13221325 and launch game. It gets another download 13251326. Surely I can play now?? But no - I get taken to web page saying: We were unable to find a patch file for your version of Battleground Europe. Please visit the Battleground Europe downloads page for the latest version. There are times when you just know that things could and should be better.
  21. I am waiting. I don't have your faith!
  22. Get unknown error message when game attempts to update. It seems to think the latest patch is wwiiol13221323.dmg. I looked on the ftp server and the latest one appears to be wwiiol13221325.dmg Tips?
