  1. my top 3 1) The french M5 at gun tipping over when pushed, its by far far the worst to do this (its maddening enough when towed, takes very little to tip even a change in gradient will do it) but even when your moving it slowly, pushing it, it will tip for the slightest thing and there is absolutely no way to recover it period...touching a berm can do it and i dont mean a big one, even a medium sized gradient on a hill and it will tip it up. but whats so annoying about it is the brit 17lb that comes in at the same time simply dosn't have the issue to anywhere near the same extent. however when the Americans come in the 17lber becomes a rare as rocking horse dodo as the m5 is the loadout for the Americans and french....IMHO while the model is in so poor a state it should be removed and replaced with the brit 17lbr until its fixed. the frustration of towing a gun like you are carrying a box of eggs 10 miles and then have it tip over at the end is...!!!!! ****** 2) Ive noticed tanks (could be atgs too but i havent noticed it as much) are firing offset again (i thought this had been fixed) left or right of where the tank actually is. which isn't to bad when in the open and you can see the shell rounds aren't coming from where the tank is ..but is deadly when the tank is obscured by terrain 3) offset...UP and down the left and right offset was bad....but from time to time the up and down offset is ridiculous iv'e seen people lie down in a cp and completely disappear
  2. your doing better than me, my plagate exe. disappeared
  3. updated fix on windows 10 and using the target software Run regedit and navigate to....... HKEYLOCALMACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Enum/USB/ VID_044F&PIDB10A ( VID_044F&PIDB10A is the device id for the thrustmaster T.1600m other thrustmaster joysticks will have a different device id ) click on Device Parameters and look for AllowIdleIrpInD3 , DeviceSelectiveSuspended , and EnhancedPowerManagementEnabled and set the values to 0 restart and your done! .... well almost, you may have to set the hat switch to directx outputs in the target profile for the game (depending on how you set up your stick) now everytime you run a profile in the Target GUI software you will see in the game controller settings that the T.1600 name changes to "Thrustmaster Combined "(like it did originally) BUT it will not put the joystick to sleep and all should work fine..... well it dose for me EDIT for developers.....for some reason I only have to apply this fix because I'm running wwiiol the joystick works fine with the target software in all my other games without it.
  4. Are you guys configuring the stick with the "Target GUI" profiles running, if so that is probably the issue. the software uses a "virtual joystick" If you go-to `devices and printers` and click on game controller settings you' see the joystick is called T.16000m as soon as you run a profile in the Target GUI software, you'll see the name of the joystick change to "Thrust-master Combined" And for some reson the the joystick wont work in battleground Europe. (actually that's not completely true any buttons you've programmed to specific keys in the GUI software will work, but the axis's wont.) there is a workaround though for windows 10 if you go back and look in Devices and printers when you have a profile running in the TARGET GUI software (incidentally you'll notice there's now an extra hid-compliant game controller along with the one called T.16000M) if you click on the T.16000m and instead of selecting game controller settings click Troubleshoot it will come up with a box saying "enable device" click on APPLY THIS FIX and it should enable the hid controller for the T.16000m In game controllers you should now see two joysticks one called Trustmaster combined and the other called T.16000m and all should be right with the game. and you can program keys and axis in game and in the target gui softwere. (unfortunately you'll have to repeat the Process every-time you decide to run a profile in the Target GUI software because the fix doesn't stick)
  5. It Could just roll round irrespective of campaign, so if one campaign ends on the 3rd day of tier 2 that's were the new campaign starts. and after it's done the top tier it resets to tier 0
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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 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.
