  1. Forgive me if this has already been established somewhere in the thread that I missed, but I just updated from 10.5.8 to Snow Leopard and can now mark things as M/L in 1.30.xx.

    Didn't change a thing with my WWIIOL install or version, just started working after the OS update. Still have the waypoint bug where I can't rename them or create more than one, however.

  2. mrpapp-

    Sounds similar to something I experienced yesterday with the newest beta.

    I'd pick an infantryman/ATG/Tank whatever, click spawn and after a second or two I'd CTD before I ever actually spawned.

    As I was methodically going through different game settings troubleshooting something else, I finally found that the only setting that gave me that CTD was having "Water shaders" enabled. I disabled the water shaders in the video settings and I've been able to spawn in every time since.

    Might be worth giving a shot, anyway.

  3. Sparre, Ahwulf-

    Thank you very much for the replies. The G5 tower will last until January no problem (assuming 1.29 doesn't get released first with the PPC issues), didn't know there were new imacs in the works!

    An Apple store just opened in Portland, ME so wandered in there while my wife was sniffing the soap in Bath and Body works the other day. Got a bug in my @$$ to get a new imac after seeing that 24" glossy screen :-). Figured I could get her a new 13" PB AND a new imac for less than a new tower and monitor (with a trade-in of my current system, of course).

    Thanks again

  4. Been four years since I bought my dual 2.5GHZ G5 and getting the urge to get a new mac. Tempted by a new 24" imacs:

    3.06GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

    2 GB Mem (would probaby upgrade to the full 4GB)

    512 MB NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GS

    Don't want to trade in my tower only to find that there's some problem with the imac's vid card preventing me from running the game so figured I'd ask here first. Anyone running WWIIOL on one of the newer imacs?

    Haven't seen any complaints in the Mac support forums, but better safe than sorry

  5. 617 Dambusters continue to get the job done.

    The squad and numerous individual members received further recognition from AHC for their efforts in the Campaign #39 Allied victory including:


    CINC Unit Commendation (4th award)


    Allied Air Force Cross

    Nothing attracts women and sheep like sexeh ribbons. Join the Dambusters and become sexeh too!

    1.28 is just around the corner, "Radar" will significantly alter the RDP and air war. We'll be ready....will you?

  6. The 617 Dambusters have again been recognized by the Allied High Command for their outstanding efforts in slowing the Axis RDP and resupply effort during historic Campaign 37, the "truce" campaign.

    Allied Unit of the Week:

    This is something that is normally not done but I felt was something that needed to be said for this week I am awarding the RAF 617 Squadron the Dambusters the Legion of Merit and Allied Unit of the week awards.

    The Dambusters are by far the most dedicated bomber group in World War II Online their actions speak louder then words to the point were I am speechless. Constantly through out a whole campaign they do Strategic bombing runs inflicting great damage on the Axis war machine to point were the Allies almost always have a big advantage after every RDP turn. Their actions don’t stop at RDP runs but also when called upon level and destroy Axis attacks from the air and ensure Allied victories. They are a unit that prides themselves on making sure that they get the bombs in the pickle barrel all the time and ensuring that the Allied players flying width hem are having fun.

    Here are the statistics for the Dambusters so far this map they are impressive.

    RAF 617 Squadron, The DamBusters, performed the following Mission Sorties this Campaign:

    Campaign Bomber Missions Flown - 327

    Campaign RTB Rate - 73%

    Shot down after dropping bombs - 18%

    Shot down before dropping bombs - 9%

    Campaign Escort Missions Flown - 29

    Total Enemy Fighters shot down - 6

    Total Campaign Bombs on Factories - 591,500 Pounds

    I S! all members of the Dambusters for there actions thus far this campaign. Wear these awards with pride as you have all earned them S!

    Furthermore, the 617 was awarded its first Suprior Unit Award at the conclusion of Campaign 37

    Greetings Ballew; I would like to nominate the Dambusters for the Superior Unit Award. During this last campaign the intense efforts at Factory Bombing kept the Axis days behind us in RDP. There efforts also slowed down the return of vehicles and munitions to the front lines.

    They truly deserve this metal for the undying devotion to duty and bombing of the factories.

    Respectfully Submitted

    Rdaneel, Marshall of the RAF

    This is approved by me Ballew Commander in Chief of the Allied forces post it up in the forums Rdaneel and notify the CO of the Dambusters as well please believe it is Kizmet. They have done excellent work this campaign as well as many others and are not out for the glory


    Allied Forces CinC

    With TOE's now a reality, and radar on the horizon, the effects of coordinated bombing will play an even more critical effect on the strategic war effort.

    The Dambusters are looking for willing pilots to take to the skies in a bomber or escort fighter and continue their dedicated service to the Allied High Command.

    Visit our website and forums (click the sig) for more information and join one of the most decorated and respected squads in WWIIOL today!

  7. After a highly successful round the clock strategic bombing campaign during the Allied victory in Campaign 36, the Dambusters were awarded their third CinC Unit Commendation in recognition of their efforts as noted below.

    CinC Unit Commendation


    Awarded by the CinC to recognize exceptionally commendable performance by participating member units of AHC while serving along side other squads or AHC units during AHC operations. It is the highest AHC unit commendation awarded.

    Awarded to the Following:



    53rd Shadow Falcon Raiders

    22nd Mechanized Infantry Regiment

    As Campaign 37 begins, we need pilots and crews to keep taking the fight to the Axis Homeland. Join us and become part of the legendary 617!

  8. Two days into campaign 36 and the air war is alive and well. Join us for a few runs and get involved!!! If you like what you see, ask for a Dambuster Recruiter and we'll head you in the right direction.

    If flying bombers isn't your thing, we need escorts now more than ever, so you fighter types are an equally important part of the Dambuster team!

    New to the game and need to rank up? At 30 points a pop, crewing as a bombardier is a great way to do it. See our website and training material above to get started.

  9. RAF 617 Squadron, The Dambusters, was formed in early March of 2004 by Charlie3 and Kizmet as WWII Online's first and (at that time) only squad dedicated to the sustained strategic bombing of the Axis Research Development and Production facilities.

    One of the common themes we see in the average World War Two Online player is their interest in history, specifically the Second World War. The squad's name pays homage to the past and current legacy of the real RAF 617 Squadron and their ingenuity, tenacity and bravery. The virtual Dambusters have our own long history and an unparalleled reputation of ingenuity, dedication and excellence within the WWIIOL community.

    The Dambusters lead the WWIIOL community (Allied and Axis) in the development and implementation of strategic bombing strategy and tirelessly work to prove (and improve) the importance that strategic bombing plays in not only the Allied war effort, but the game as a whole.

    We are a fun bunch of nuts who love raining down destruction on the Axis factories around the clock. Our bomber pilots like nothing better than taking flights of a dozen (even dozens) of bombers and escorts across enemy lines.

    Our escort pilots are among the best in the game. They cut through factory defenders with nerves of steel and get our bomber pilots to target and safely home. If you are a fighter pilot looking for action, quit chasing AI-hugging 109s on the deck, come on up to where the real air war is taking place.

    Our Squad currently has members from around the world. We cover numerous time zones and enjoy the comraderie of teamwork and the expanding of knowledge we gain, simply from talking with one another on teamspeak as we play the game. We welcome all bomber and fighter pilots, new and old alike. Although our main function is strategic bombing, our squad encourages enjoyment in the game and readily perform other missions as required by the Allied High Command. If the Axis make it, we're more than happy to blow it up!

    We encourage you to delve into the complexities of World War Two Online, and more specifically, we invite you to join our "Team" as we continue to rain death and destruction down on the Axis hordes. This game encourages (even requires) teamwork and has a steep learning curve so you will find gameplay much more enjoyable, and you'll survive much longer, if you join a squad early on in your WWIIOnline playing career. With experience comes knowledge and the Dambusters are a knowledgebase waiting to teach you the complexities of this Massive Multi-Player Online game.

    So that you get a better idea of what we do, as well as the excitement and enjoyment that is possible in the game, we have included some links below to videos of past Dambuster bombing missions and some of our training material.

    If you like what you see and are interested in joining one of the most well-known and well-respected squads in WWIIOL, ask for the Dambusters by name in game or stop by our forums and introduce yourself. Even if you don't elect to join our ranks, we need the help of every Allied player to keep the Axis war machine at bay, so watch for our mission announcements on ch [55] and [3] and join us on a mission or two. All are welcome.

    Either way, please feel free to drop by our new hangar at and have a look around.

  10. Yep, same. Fortunately had the full installer for 1.23.2 still on the HD. Reinstalled and reupdated to 1.24, but while the 1.24 updater was running, I quit Safari and Playgate so it wouldn't get caught in the auto-update loop. Started up the newly installed 1.24 in offline mode first (remember a similar problem last year that required us to start up offline first) and then re-launched via safari and I got in game just fine.
