  1. 45 year olds know what steam is, I am one of them. I think you are wrong about this games reception
  2. That British LMG sounds badass though lol
  3. Because it is arguably the most challenging game you will ever play.
  4. Look forward to seeing what the improvements are. For the future though, I would suggest it be done on off-peak days/hours. !S
  5. I think part of this is coming from the fact people were lacing into you about being allied, I know we briefly talked about this last night. Call me old fashioned but I am side dedicated, if I ever switched it would be at the end of the current campaign whether we win or lose but I don't see that happening. That said squads should make it known if they are side dedicated that way new players know the rules. If they break the rules they get a warning, if they repeat they get booted, this is the way it was when I first started playing over a decade ago and it built a cohesive group as a result. Everyone didn't different tasks, we worked with HC to do the things they need to attack or defend which involved the boring stuff like FB defense, but that is what real war is like, there are lulls. The worst of what you mentioned is being mean to green tags, I have not seen it, but if it is happening they need to stop it not only because we need new players but because it is just rude in general. You can get absorbed in this game and people forget how it was when they first started playing, they need to put themselves in their shoes and help. Last night there was a green tag following me around and he was constantly exposing himself, I had to explain to him how to move up and get good cover and be patient, he wound up getting some kills and had fun(as far as I could see). This game needs to appoint a WW2 online squad that specifically takes green tags and teaches them, you have to get their confidence up in order to turn them into long term players that will spend money. I hate to sound like an old man who reminisces about "way back when" but it is hard not to when you see how unorganized the game has become from what it used to be. When I first came here people always asked if you would like to join their squad, they would take you to the training server and teach you, you got on TS with like 15 others etc. Everyone was in a squad and the game was packed with them and they were side dedicated and you saw that with the banter on the forums. More than anything I would love to have that back because that is what made this game great, I could log on at any time and the map was hopping.
  6. That was very good! Piercer sounds like Bilton.
  7. I am getting this when I try to enter the training server.
  8. I checked the mixer and they are all the way up, but I am only getting 40% as the green meter indicates when I hit the slider. I tried Alt/Tabbing out to adjust the game slider but unsuccessful, how would I do that? I still can't believe this happened all from discord.
  9. R.I.P. sir
  10. I usually don't use Discord but XOOM had invited people to ask questions during the stoppage in play we had for updates. I couldn't make my mic work and messed around in an effort to but was unsuccessful, when I went back into game to play I immediately noticed I could hardly heard a thing, the volume was very soft to the point I couldn't hear my footsteps, vehicles etc when running around. I went and made sure the volume was up and what not, nothing worked, I even uninstalled discord and tried to restore to a day, then a week earlier and both were unsuccessful. I am totally stumped, I can't play the game the way it is, any and all helped is appreciated. --- A n00b
  11. No more OT forum I assume. Been away from three years, lots of changes it seems.
  12. Saw that yesterday lol
  13. Sometimes changing things in game doesn't translate to changing them in your BE folder where the keymapping is stored. Going into your battlegroundeurope folder and look for the file "CH," this contains all of the key mapping you did in game. Use notepad to open the file, not word, I used word and it opened it like a pita which was a nightmare to read. Once you have found the key map you want, copy and save it first somewhere, then delete it, go back into game and re-keymap and see if that works. Hope it works.
  14. I tried that but it didn't work, I was able to set the resolution through windows luckily. I actually have another question. I have an entirely new system and forgot to copy my air file so I lost the coding for increment flaps, elevator trim etc. I remember people used to post it, but I couldn't find it, do you know where I might find that? Thanks again OHM!
  15. I set mine WAY too big, I went through properties and couldn't find a way to fix this. I use a 28 inch ASUS monitor, brand new so I am learning all over again. Help appreciate thanks!
