  1. hold FN and hit ESC to disable function lock (Or follow the manufacturers recommended method) with function lock ON the keys do not send their normal keyscan codes
  2. Being angled to an opposing shooter is good, but this statement is not correct. The code can and does factor any angle and the outcome of hitting X armor plate with Y projectile @ °ZZ angle, it works perfectly fine at many things besides a °90 AOI, most killing shots in game are much less stellar than an impact that perfect, especially as range increases. Angle is good, but that only goes so far. If you have a vickers facing an 88, you should probably hope your angle is nearly parallel so the round maybe has a chance to ricochet (You should probably also run, really really fast) You still have to factor in all things, because the game will. Not all of you will be sitting in a °45 wedge. Still have to factor in, what is shooting at me, what is my armor, can it overmatch me, can it spall me enough to shotgun my crew what parts do i have that are not playing the wedge game, do i have a shot trap, do i have nothing but air blocking my hull and how many of his friends are creeping around to a place that is not angled etc
  3. @DOC All of your long shelved terrain work, to best of my knowledge, went into the live game, in it's entirety, with only modification where something you cant see in TE like a unity1.5 berm came in to bollox things up. That included your one way paths and dead ends. That went out in one of the very 1st terrain patches IIRC
  4. This baffles me It is perfectly legal to pump methotrexate or cytoxan or wellcovorin into someone, and charge them for the pleasure but a stupid little plant that i dont think has ever been show to be really harmful in anyway aside from inhaling smoke (But that is ok as long as it is Winston/Salem?), is a no no.
  5. @jwilly I do something kind of like that for this chilli i make. The meat is simmered with several onions until the onions kind of cease to exits, and then because the meat needs to be extremely fine so that when finished the whole thing flows with no chunks, i take a stick blender with chopper blades and puree the meat to death, before moving on to the next step. Unfortunately, i wonder, even if pulverized to the finest of fine, if the meat would agree with his system well right now after swallowed? Keep at it DOC, eventually the war will end, and you can enjoy a hamburger and a beer on the field of victory.
  6. The only open spawns i can think of are FMS and Ships, everything else spawns into some semblance of shelter Can not very well put a 700m and 7km radius no fire zone around those? If you spawn in to immediately take a bullet to the face, then someone has gotten the upper hand. 1st thing you should do is alert the mission members, and then weigh your options. If FMS is it better to shut it down and relocate? If not, then you either have to call for support, or possibly become the support if you can not find any. Sometimes the ML may have no interest in being the ML, or may not even know he was auto assigned as ML, and you have to take lead and take control of the situation (but try speaking to the ML 1st) If naval spawn, then you need to investigate support options Friendly airstrike, Friendly ships from another port, etc. Or if it is hopeless, you may have to cede use of the port facilities, sometimes the enemy gets the upper hand and can win by simply standing his ground and denying you use, this is a war game and these things do happen in war
  7. We have programmers, they are a small lot and thinly stretched, so their efforts have to be carefully prioritized for maximum payback. (They are some really brilliant people too) PPO's do not require new coding, at least to the extent we have presently employed them to use. They do require modification of data and scripting, but that is different than coding, they make use of the abilities in the existing code. And of course the 3d models. The new AF is similar, no new code required (i made it so you know there is no code required LOL), just some new art assets, a bit of new data, a little terrain editing etc, but no new code required. 1.36 in general though, lot of code work there, host and client. If we had 20 coders, i could guarantee you 20 busy people
  8. FWIW, i havent a clue in axis planes. I am usually playing infantry, and sometimes panzers. Maybe standing in for the M3 Grants? https://www.driving.co.uk/video/wwii-m3-grant-tank-riddled-bulletholes/
  9. Battle of Antheny 1st winner is @kgarner 2nd @raydr nice saving the fms, ahll be baaack 3rd @apexaxis you bastage, my satchels!!!! 4th @grim333 killed me while assaulting a flak30 or 38 5th @xanthus blew my poor vicky up 6th @ducko and its @MikeAZ fault too, distracting me!! come shoot mike next! 7th @tainter Sapped me And on the 7th death, merlin rested cause he got hungry
  10. Dont think in the BOF theater, there was a lot of need for heavy anti air until after the retaliation began (kinda weird but yea, the allies bombed french and belgian targets) In berlin on the other hand.... cool 40% chance of crew 1 hit in head, that gives me 60% chance of being blasted by something else Knowing my luck, it's going to be the frag to the head
  11. uh that looks like a toilet bowl, about ready to overflow with i dont wanna know what
  12. also personally i would suggest shying away from Xbox PS4 style game pads they will work for a ground vehicle, but the axis on them is terribly short throw for an aircraft game that does not have an arcade style control mode would be terribly frustrating. when you map that axis, i believe you hold CONTROL to reverse it If you are going to practice with mouse and keyboard, i might suggest playing a bit with the troop transport planes as those have a relaxed flight model so that non pilots can fly para drops. They will be a lot more forgiving to get the hang of things a bit until you get a stick
  13. I would like to have them be able to do AA duty, either via loadouts for ammo type, or a 2nd 88 model, though loadouts would probably be easier and less confusing for people. That said though, i do not know if that ability would be found terribly useful by the majority, in most situations The fusing distance for those is a pretty good range out for minimal, so would not seem to help a lot with direct attack of the grass cutters, unless you hit them directly. Not to mention 88's dont traverse and elevate fast enough to directly engage a plane well at close range. And the part of AA that is does well is not accomplished by an individual gun, but a battery of guns working in close orchestration to make a FLAK wall so while yea, this will kill a plane dead at 3km alt, its more a thing of you and your 10 or so buddies will kill the plane, but which one kills it is anyone's guess. I could see a dedicated squad of guys who are like, we don't care who kills what, we only care about the results, perhaps doing it? It would be awesome to watch a dedicated group throw up a flak wall over a front line AO, i think they would still need aid of small AA though to deal with stuff trying to come in from behind or underneath the flak wall to vulch them?
  14. Yea, it's kind of like the kill-cam from Sniper Elite It would be neat as a training aid thing, but it is kind of weird having it in live battle, kind of takes all the fog of battle out of things
  15. I don't think present supply is the campaign list, I think it is so you can have extra stuff during the non campaign part of the testing
  16. Your still mad about me shooting you? I said it was an accident
  17. try this once open your documents folder open the battleground europe folder rename wwiiol.xml to wwiiol.bak run settings.exe, pick your resolution save Now run the game See what it looks like If game launches as a small square, go to preferences, and make sure the resolution showing matches what you picked in settings.exe if it does not, pick that one and relaunch the game
  18. EW, does not want either is there a None of the Above choice?
  19. I was thinking of going with this one
  20. @PITTPETE
  21. SO! You admit to trying to swindel OT out of their hard earned ill gotten gains by telling them that they will receive a 48" plate when in fact you will be delivering 11" @sorella @Silky can we get a judicial ruling on this?
  22. See these beans? Notice the rich colour? and the belly filling consistency? And notice the generous covering of BACON?????
  23. Now now, it would not be a good thing as the official OT food provider, to start right off with false advertising. We have become quite the experts in wood grains, due to gaspipe's plywood canoes and we can tell that by analyzing the woodgrain in the table that, that is NOT in fact a 3 foot diameter plate but is in fact a standard Melmac dinner plater of 11 inches in size. Submitting wood sample and dinner plate samples as exibits C and D respectively. And the beans still need work, colour and consistency is all wrong, not even for english breakfast beans
  24. We need to work in the beans there. Meatwise your good though. Also, the above picture portion, that is the child's platter yes?
