      Seeking Squad Leaders!   04/09/2017

      Soldiers!

      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.

      Recruiting drive.   04/16/2017

      With the anticipated influx of new players on the heels of this summer's Steam release, there is a reasonable expectation that forum traffic will increase. I'm looking for volunteers, not just to moderate, but to help answer new players' questions or direct them toward the correct answers. The forums may be a player's first contact with the game and we want to ensure that it is a positive experience. A happy player is a player who sticks around and the more new players we can retain, the more resources we will have for development.
      With that in mind, we are looking for current players with a positive attitude and posting history. PM me if you are interested.

  1. See here, http://forums.wwiionline.com/forums/topic/411378-holy/
  2. I managed to connect to the patch server after several attempts which resulted in the play gate crashing out. The patch loaded and installed cleanly on Windows 10. I input my game name and pw, manually selected the campaign server and clicked play. Received the red letter message, "log in aborted". If the requirement is another 2 hour DL and clean install of the game client, well, I'll be playing HoI 4 for awhile.
  3. Simple fixes, requiring no changes to the game, thus costing nothing. 1. Learn to shoot an AA gun properly. 2. Moving targets are harder to hit, that being said, MOVE! Suicide diving a bomb onto the target is nothing more than using the Dr. Strangelove tactic all the way to the target, so have fun in game.
  4. Gun boats yes, MTBs, yes, E-Boats, yes. You could even look at armed trawlers/Corvettes for coastal AI controlled convoys. Have AI controlled convoys bringing supplies for US/British forces on the continent, with limited AI escorts. Let players provide for more escort vessels and aircraft. That will up the naval game. Later on, look at adding light cruisers and up.
  5. You'd have to expand the map to realistic scale for heavy bombers to come into their own. It would also be the only way to bring in real artillery. I'd settle for HMG teams and medium mortars though, plus mobile AA guns.
  6. Quit checking, they'll post it once it's done. World of Warships for me until then.
  7. I'm still plugging along here. Every 10 minutes another batch of my cookies come outta the oven. I made 96 yesterday, 96 more today.
  8. Where's the update at? I get a 10057 error every time I try to connect to the server the normal way. Edit: Still down I see, oh well, back to baking cookies. Merry Christmas!
  9. Try building a fru immediately after this happens, it usually tells you that you have to wait for the timer to complete. After this, it seems to reset the timer and it functions normally. I've had this happen several times myself.
  10. You can do the same thing in return to the Panhard, Vickers, and Daimler using a rifle or an LMG. Just get up to touch range and aim for the driver or gunner to get the kill credit.
  11. Found that, did it twice. Now it works, not sure what happened the first time. Fixed.
  12. Brand new gaming machine, I have sound in any other game and in online videos. Here I have nothing. I don't even see BGE in the volume mixer. It's like it doesn't exist. How do I fix this? I've tried all the sound settings to no effect. Playing deaf is worthless.
  13. A small but elite band, we are always looking for more recruits! We specialize in infantry special operations (Para/Glider insertions), but also have pilots and skilled naval players as well. Several members also serve within the ranks of the Axis High Command structure. Look for vozz, wstriker, eggert, vanhefty, judge, or jgk in game for recruitment opportunities! We are willing to train new players! We have only 2 rules, 1) Get TS (teamspeak) and be on it, even if you can't talk, so that you can hear. (Comms are important!) 2) No playing allied during campaigns! Do as you like during intermission! www.flyingfall.com
  14. FF is always recruiting! Look for us in game!
  15. We do it all, Heer, KM, LW, and FJ! Check us out here to apply! http://www.freewebs.com/sfclanforces/ You can also contact one of us in game and ask to speak to a recruiter! See you on the battlefield!
