  1. that's all well and good, you try playing my timezone.......these days you can easily spend half the day waiting for somebody from any squad to log onto discord!
  2. What air? I've only seen about 3 aircraft all map!!!
  3. you seem to think....the people who fly wouldn't like the most realistic flight model they can get ........you are flat wrong.
  4. This
  5. Change the UI so the individual squad can be associated with a particular brigade! and not were they spawn in! make the town supply generic .... x amount of tier 0,1,2,3,4 stuff so squads can identify a specific unit other than have change from brit/french/american...Italian/German depending on where they spawn
  6. Hi Kile That happens pretty naturally in the Tz I mostly play these days gone ore the days when I played in all the timezones and I rarely do weekends I usually finished playing around 3pm GMT due to family commitments most of the time I log in between 9-11 am GMT and just join the channel everybody else is on (if any) or wait for people to log on and join me...most if not all of the people who play at the time I play do the same thing...there just isn't enough of us to do anything else, latter in the day people may drift off to their own channels when population gets bigger but for the most part all the squads at my time of day (the ones on (discord) hang round together. that dosn't mean they dont have their own squad Identity/loyalty it's a matter of necessity there isn't the numbers for that luxury but In that time, and this is why i started the post I'll be plying Brit french american and its not dictated by what I want to play but were the battle is.. what services I'm in Isn't really dictated by choice. The first choice when logging in is AO or DO and that is to a large extent dictated by how over pop or under pop you are, then what brigades are actually usable at that AO/DO and then, how Much equipment they have in them.....If I had a choice Id be Playing Brit All the time but that just dosn't happen...for days at at a time...and It's not just me who has preferences others do to...Its not unusual to hear comments like oww f**** its only (insert county name) kit or theirs no (insert country name) . being able to consistently play the country of your choice while playing with friends is a pull...that IMHO is missed
  7. In WWIIOL the are many times that brigades from more than one country end up in the same town as is, In fact my last two kills on the sever was a German followed by an Italian in quick succession. there placement is more often than not based Just on supply rather than any historic operational reason. point of fact a few maps back..there were ONLY French brigades Defending the UK . you actually couldn't spawn in the British army on British soil lol. I do remember the OLD days though ...when the Brits were placed north and the french were based south and neither, there were actually people, quite a few, who would refuse to fight down south..or up north because they only wanted to play British or French. just ask some of the older players at times it was quite a problem. but it dose show there is a draw to persona role-playing For instance I'm sure If say the 250 squad and some other Spanish players would love to be able to play in a 250. Infanterie-Division But there would be little point if it was always in the rear with the gear. or some Overly anal retentive person decided it fought on the Russian and therefor it wasn't historical accurate and didn't get in at all. but what a draw if you could spawn in it anywere you were playing.. As for the equipment in generic brigades all you have to do is rank equipment there dosn't have to be an exact match take the LMG you lump the BAR in that section you lob the Churchill 7 in as a heavy tank same as the s76 . with it may take some tweaking but its not insurmountable issue
  8. I know how to use the ui...even though its chunky...thats not the point....my point is..as simply as i can put it....IF i decide I want to role play a campaign as a member of 3 commando.....currently I can't because it may not be active it could be sitting in A rear town, or not at an active AO I may not even be able to role play being in the british army...as the same may apply sometimes the only option to fight is french or american because of brigade placement in the current system..IT misses that draw to the game were people could role play a particular persona.
  9. somthing else. let me give an example of currently: As a player you log and their is a battle in Andenne the axis have just 1 British brigade which turns out to be good because I like the British avatar and equipment..so i spawn and start fighting but equipment is low, and the brigade is swapped out for a french one. so I have to change my persona to french to continue the battle. to me that's missing a trick.. its not letting an individual or a whole squad play/identify with a particular persona, and certainly not down to a brigade level. If however you flipped it on its head, And Instead of moving 3 commandos from one place to another, you simply moved an amount of equipment.. a generic brigade and let the player decide what persona he was going to spawn in, a squad could identify with particular brigade e.g the whole of lancers could always spawn in as 1.guards wherever they were fighting (if they wanted to) and become synonymous with that brigade
  10. 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,..it 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)...ie 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
  11. your doing better than me, my plagate exe. disappeared
  12. 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.
  13. 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)
  14. 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
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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!
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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...
