      New Community Volunteer Opportunity   04/29/2017

      With the looming Steam release, we are anticipating many new players to the game. This is great for all of us, and it's important that we retain as many as we can. With that in mind, we'd like to enlist players to help with the inevitable questions asked in the forums. Ideally, gameplay questions are asked and answered in-game, but it's not always easy or convenient to answer questions while playing. A Gameplay Support Forum would be a good place for those who want to help. We are now accepting volunteers for the Rat Patrol, who will provide correct and consistent info to new players in the Forums. The more new players we retain, the better it is for the game and the biggest hurdle in player retention is grasping the complexities of this game. If you are interested, send me a PM.

      Squad Leaders Contact GVONPAUL OR Dodger for Squad Forums   05/18/2017


      We are seeking Squad Leaders to volunteer their squads to help us test the upcoming Squad Forums system. This system will integrate squads who wish to participate into a self-sustained "forum within a forum." You will be able to add members to your squad, assign permissions, and create forums/calendar events on your own. The idea behind this system is part of our commitment to support squads as a integral part of our community. This service will be offered free of charge to all squads of World War II Online upon launch. Our goal is to offer all of the services a squad off-site forum can offer but free of charge and tied in to our existing forum service. So what do you need tested? We need willing volunteers to test the whole system - make forums, post threads, assign permissions, etc. The idea is to have several squads giving it a test run to point out any flaws before we launch it publicly. What are the requirements? We are ideally looking for medium to large squads - Ideally ten people or so plus, but smaller squads feel free to apply - and a willingness to use our platform. It's important to note (as of now - these may be included at a later date) we are unable to convert posts from a private forum if your squad previously used one, and you (or your XO's and recruiters) will need to assign individual members permissions. It is entirely possible that in the future this system will be automatically linked to the game's squad roster, but as of now developer priorities are elsewhere (1.37 and steam, w00t!) How do I sign up? PM me ( @Dodger ) on the forums, or email me at dodger@playnet.com - Please indicate your squad name and how many members you have. I will get back to you with more instructions.

  1. I was using 11.1 but rolled back to 11.2 as it worked for jorvik. Works for me too.
  2. I was using 11.1 or 11.2 previously - will check tonight. Forgot to mention that I am running Win 7/64 and I7 in case this problem is only for this combination.
  3. I have the same problem after installing 11.5 on a 6970. In fact I thought there was some other problem - glad I saw this post. I don't have a correlation with the sun; the freezing seems to occur when changing any field of view (e.g., view through gun site when rotating a turret, changing direction while walking as inf, etc.). FPS drops from the 90's to 2 for a second or two and then back up. Navigating the map also has the same effect. Will roll back to previous version tonight and see what happens.
  4. Thanks for the tips. I'm running 9.7 0n my 4870 X2 since 1.30 as the latest drivers 10.x (can't remember which) did not work well at that time and I rolled back to 9.7. I also recall that others had no success with the latest drivers back then. S!
  5. Don't mean to be thick, but can't find any specific reference to WWIIOL and 4870 drivers here. Don't see a search option.
  6. Installed 9.7 - played 2 hours and no problems :-) Intel Core Duo E8500 3.16 GHz 8 GB RAM Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit ATI Radeon 4870 X2
  7. I have been using ATI cards and drivers for several years with no issues. About 10 months ago I got this setup: Intel Core Duo E8500 3.16 GHz 8 GB RAM Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit ATI Radeon 4870 X2 Everything worked fine until about 1 week ago using 8.x drivers with absolutelly no problems, then suddenly weird green squares and auto reboots. Windows diagnostic popup claims problems with ATI drivers. Cleaned everything and reinstalled Catalyst 8.10 - no joy - immediate reboot or freeze when logging into WWIIOL. All other computer functions, internet, etc. working fine. Today installed the latest Catalyst 9.10 out of desperation. Logged into WWIIOL no problem but sudden clean exits (CTD?) from game about every 10-20 minutes. No heating issues anywhere, etc. Out of ideas...
  8. Interesting - I have the same problem - see the joystick sticky above http://forums.battlegroundeurope.com/showthread.php?t=231324 When I login, I must for every session click "detect controllers", save the tank keymap (which is always the correct one), and then MOST OF THE TIME I can steer tanks. Other vehicles, atg's, etc., do not require this. Strangely, I have the same keymap for trucks and tanks (as far as steering goes).
  9. Klaus, what was the problem with your keymapping? I'm sure that is not my problem but it never hurts to check again.
  10. I'm not sure if this is the same problem. I got a new computer with Vista Ultimate 64 bit a few weeks ago during 1.28, re-installed WWIIOL and everything worked fine - no glitches whatsoever. The 1.29 patch messed up the joystick; not completely, as the joystick functions and keymap work fine for trucks and ATG's but not so for tanks. For tanks, the keymapped views, positions, etc. on the joystick are OK, but I can't steer (but can use js buttons 1 and 2 to shift gears up and down) from the driver position or operate the turret or gun in gunner postion. Same for commander, cannot use joystick to rotate but buttons work for views - the turret/gun/commander control has transferred to the mouse in tanks. Just to underline the difference - all the joystick functions for steering and gun/commander work fine in atgs and trucks where applicable but not in tanks. I also noticed a significant drop in FPS. Any ideas? ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 Catalyst Version 08.10 Vista Ultimate 64bit Asus Rampage Formula Intel Core2 Duo E8500 8GB RAM MS PP2 FFB joystick USB Logitech G5 mouse CHB throttle
  11. Thank you stngrpbg; I clicked on "Visual and Performance" in settings, closed Settings, and logged right in with no problems after about 24 hours of frustration. As nobody from my squad was there, I only stayed in game for a few minutes, but everything seemed normal with 32 FPS at a relatively quiet FB. I was getting the white screen with "login complete" and then dumped back to the WWIIOL page. Also could not get into the Training server. Checknet utility got 8 OK's.
