      Need help for incoming players.   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

      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.

  1. It could also enhance the roleplaying aspect of the game if done correctly, as it could enable individual squads to identify with specific brigade identities without being limited to where they spawn.
  2. There is a lot of equipment that just doesn't get used on the allied side, especially when the US comes in and brit and French numbers are vastly reduced. because the supply in a town is linked to the county that the brigade/division is from (or as planed in the future HC will decide whether the town is Brit French or US) and so for example, brit brigades can often see very little action and things like the brit 17 pounder or the Churchill become marginalised/unused shortly after their introduction unless you wish to drive from 10 towns back. I remember about 3 campaigns back the allied were in a position that axis where in England, but the brits were not. and towards the end of this map the brits were in England but the fighting was in France. and while This currently doesn't effect the axis side, it will do when the Italians come in. if you prefer playing a particular persona it almost becomes impossible. If however Town supply was NOT set to nationality, but instead just to class of equipment and left to the individual to decide which persona he wished to spawn in Town be it brit/French/US or in the near future Italian/German so whether they spawned a brit with a Sten or a American with grease gun Town supply would decrease by one in that category. that way people could always play the persona they wished with the equipment they prefer instead of it being dependant on the arbitrary choices that the High command make on were which nationality is placed or what town is attacked/defended.
  3. It was much better yesterday than it is today...I'm getting a lot slower load times again, the posting and search are working good now though. Edit: actually the search loads nice and quickly, if you can get the forums to load like the search results....then victory will be yours!
  4. that might just be a USB power issue, try if you can, to see if the throttle is on a different USB motherboard header than anything ells so its not sharing the power, after that, I'm out of ideas for you to try except for the obvious one of contacting saitek? its a new product it could be a driver/software/hardware issue with their product.
  5. which version of windows are you using? first check to make sure the software/drivers are correct for the version of windows your using (i'm sure they are, but check anyway) then, check its in usb2 slots some composite devices don't work well in usb3 slots. also check that the usb slots are actually working. some of them may be switched off in your bios because the resources are being used for somthing else then you might need to go into the software you downloaded for your joystick and re-calibrate the joystick there. to calibrate your axis you need to open the mad cats Hud application then click (settings) select your joystick then click (calibrate axis) If that works go to (devices and printers) find your joystick and select (game controller settings) and a popup named "Game controllers" should come up . with two butons (advanced) and (properties) on it click on (advanced) and make your joystick the preferred device, then click on (properties) and select the Test tab if you can see the joystick buttons then it should be recognizing your joystick. you can check that for the throttle too, but you don't make it the preferred device, well unless you actually want to for some reason.
  6. Three suggestions first, downloadable/selectable default keymaps for common joysticks/Rudder pedals etc. second, get the game optimised for nvidia shadowplay. third start using somthing other than TS3 for coms, I'ts nice to use somthing familiar, but ts3 overlay has compatibility issues. While non of these things enhance gameplay in themselves and at first glance may be a waist of resources. They would make life simpler for users, it's nice when things just work smoothly together, and that should help with member retention which in the long run would mean more mula rolling in.
  7. well, it's easy to believe given all the lag, but honestly there's just two much of it, I honestly think you'll find that when the issue if minimised/fixed it will go away, and while I am not naïve enough to think people don't cheat. I think for the vast majority of incident's it's just poor code/lag/offset etc.
  8. who said it had to be random, it could just as easily be specific to location, service provider, path to server, equipment, drivers, or a myriad of other things any of which could make it seem like a select few to one group while other players or groups could have different specific lists. you could even be on one.
  9. yep, it's an odd thing to get used to, that lag in this game can give you an advantage, were in most fps games its a distinct disadvantage. its nobody's fault, but it can be as frustrating as hell...it dose seem to have become a lot worse of late, and if CRS can find out why and minimise it....the better this game will be.
  10. they are two different issues, offset is when you see people coming through the wall next to the door or visa versa, or have difficulty getting up the stairs etc, it can be fixed by rebooting. lag... is what it is, you just see people late or visa versa , sometimes very late. I once shot a guy and saw him run out the room and up the stairs before he died, mostly depends on were you from. you can always move to Texas. when somebody has both which can and is often be the case.. then...
  11. No I did it to play too, so now I may have to wait 3 mins, I'll make a cup coffee.....:) and post in the forums while i wait It's not a b1 if its true, So if you can't see which appears more important to CRS, when they introduce a feature to "balance the sides" But then are Actively going round telling people that they will turn it off if you give them extra chash, then hay
  12. I wouldn't worry, I'm sure all they have to do is edit a file somewhere, now that they have your money you don't expect them to be jonnie on the spot do you, thats just unreasonable. Just think soon.
  13. I went hero. Got a confirmation. Still got a 2.5 minute delay login in![/ LOL a) The game gets the offset bug, that to fix you have to reboot the game... a) CRS introduce a 3 min login delay as a feature that will allegedly balance the sides. c) But the feature not only annoys some people on login, it actually exasperates people who attempt to fix the offset bug by re-booting. d) CRS do a Don Corleone and whisper in your ear "give us $30 bucks a month and we'll make the feature disappear...." (which sort of defeats advertised purpose of the feature.) e) You take it up the keister and pay.. f) You still have login delay....... no need to panic, It'll be fixed soon. what was your first thought again? Don't worry, I'm sure that's not the case CRS, would never take advantage like that.
  14. when there are no missions for a particular service.. e.g there or no air missions in the French air force, or no British navy missions. The rank required to create them be changed to 0/ftp for the first mission only. so that new players or players trying out the game can access all areas. currently there are certain times of day (quite long periods of time) when its impossible for lower ranks / free to play to access parts of the game, without having to ask somebody else to stop what they are doing to create a mission for them, this is haphazard to say the least. and these are the times where it would be most beneficial to actually get more players playing. foot shoot and self are words that spring to mind.
