Those are awesome, Pinetree.

Command Tent, that looks like a typical battle in Battle Academy. Tons of wrecked vehicles around an objective. Lots of fun.

@Pinetree - great looking shots!

@LB - alot of scenarios with armor ended up looking like that, but this one in particular was a bit ridiculous.

@W8taminute -  I look forward to seeing your contributions!

That's my Buster heading towards a stargate that has a nearby planet as its backdrop.

Unfortunately, X3 still remains a needlessly difficult and frustrating game at times.  Inevitably I get so annoyed with it that I re-sub to Eve Online.  :)

Definitely.  I have two cruisers at Athens, 5 at Earth, and one at Olympus.  It's not much obviously but I've got another cruiser in the pipeline.  I gotta get some better ships though.  I'll send one of my scouts to check out Antioch and Syracuse.

Here's another M&B Napoleonic, on the Brit side.   Lotsa reloadin' near cover going on.  You can see someone chose a Commander rank, on the right, along with a Piper further past him near the house.  The boys on the other side of the rock were mixing it up on our right flank.

This time with less jerkfaces on the chat bar!

Nefaro, all I see are skirmishes.  Where are the line battles?

I only play the public ones, not gonna bother with tight regimen as I'm having tons of fun this way.  Don't really need to, either, because most people learn to stick together even if they're not toeing the line constantly. 

I've played a handful of the 'Commander' mode battles, and they were quite interesting.  The one where everyone commands their own AI unit of men.  It's like a separate game, almost.  Fun in a different way.  ;)

I'll post a few more in another thread so I don't spam this one so much.

You get to set your player banner to whatever flag you want, I think you can even select custom ones. So it's not strictly where the player is from, but it is a banner that a player has selected, presumably because that's where he is from. Mine is a Union Jack.

The roundel symbols above their heads are to show friend from foe.  With all the uniform variance, it would be extremely difficult to tell the difference.  As mentioned, they're just something you can choose for your character, individually.

I may try some BF3 over our long weekend (Queen's Day) - I feel my ego needs a good bruising.

LOL!

So that's why I had this itchy feeling of being watched!

I remember that exact match.  After having run up to that house, with a few other teammates, we were trading fire through the windows and around the sides - was quite heated.  Think I was trying to shove my bayonet through a window, and into some enemy shooter's surprised face, when he came up to shoot out of it.  Worked in the past, but I missed and the guy buggered off upstairs where people don't try to stab you through windows when you're aiming.  ;D

So I started aiming at one of the upstairs windows, and that bastard Ser Fail caught me unawares while running up behind me with a sword slash from horseback!  Much fun.

Here's a shot from a tense death match:

Okay, those sniper shots made me jealous, so I decided to try sniping in MW3.  I've been avoiding the sniper class because...I am an awful shot as it is.  :)  But I figured might as well give it a try. 

Here are two shots of a 1-2 kill I got while camping out.

My hiding spot:

(http://img706.imageshack.us/img706/8817/iw5mp4.jpg)

First kill:

(http://img546.imageshack.us/img546/4127/iw5mp1.jpg)

Second kill:

(http://img40.imageshack.us/img40/4787/iw5mp2.jpg)

And here is a short 30-sec vid I made of the two shots (at half speed so you can appreciate my handiwork  ;D):

http://youtu.be/o2N66nkVbhs

As you can see, with the first target I got nervous and actually missed with the first round.  But the second hit the mark.

The second target was a close call.  From the vid, it appears I was pulling right a bit.  I think the only reason I hit him is because he came to a stop when he ran into the ambush coming from the other direction.  Either that, or one of my class bonuses helped me with "error correction". Timing-wise, it was a close call regarding who would get credit for the kill, but it appears that my muzzle flash was a half second earlier than the tracer rounds coming from the other direction.  Considering how awful I am, I am proud of the long range shot.  8)  What's that old sniper saying?  If you run, you'll only die tired.   ;D

Yes.  You can select the frequency that you wish these cinematics to occur from the game options menu.  Once in-game, whenever you pull off an impressive shot, the game will switch to a slow motion cinematic view which will follow the bullet as it leaves the muzzle of your rifle, flies through the air, and then through your target.  You can also often see the deformed bullet spin off out of the exit wound and hit others in the bullet's path.

Last turn of TOAW (The Operational Art of Whack-a-Mole) Vietnam Combat Operations Volume I.
Three US Marine Regiments (9th, 4th, 7th(?)) continue mopping up operations after clearing the North Vietnamese 12th Regiment's stronghold at An Lao.

The campaign ended in a draw.  I was not able to eliminate enough North Vietnamese and Viet Cong units / HQs to achieve victory.  When the fog of war was lifted in the end, substantial OPFOR units are still hiding in my own back yard.

^Looks pretty cool MengJiao.  But is that a Soviet with a Panzerschrek standing next to a German artillery tractor with a German soldier on it?

That was an odd moment.  I usually take the Russian troop-type who has a (presumably captured) Panzershrek, so that part is only odd from the game design point of view (ie decide to give the Russians Some German weapons).  The German halftrack was on hand for a firefight and I usually come over to the German positions after the battle to see what happened.  In this case, the driver and the guy sitting in back were dead, but the halftrack was still driving and it was running over and over into the tree in front of it.  I shut off the engine and took the screenshot.
As often happens in ARMA games, it is sometimes hard to reconstruct what happened when you go over the battlefield.  I would guess this german crew and passenger (troops tend to get onto vehicles a lot in this version of ARMA 2) were killed by MG fire, but there was a lot of shooting when I first got to the German position so maybe one of my assistants shot somebody (I usually have a few riflemen with me when I go to look over the remains of the enemy -- you never can tell when somebody might be lurking -- in one case I found an MG42 crew trapped under a destroyed PAK40 -- it was hard to find an angle from which to shoot them and of course I had to borrow some ammunition and do it myself)

I'm pretty sure it was a hit from the side by a 85mm shell, but the Russians have a range of shell types and I was firing a 76mm gun with the relatively rare APCR (? special kind of AP?) shell and it may have hit the underside since I was shooting from downhill from close range and it blew up
right after I fired.  The explosion was spectacular, but the Panther never loses its turret (unlike the PZKWIVH), though you can see a burned area around the wreck.  There were no survivors and not even any bodies (a less explosive demise leaves the dead crew sticking out some times) and some damage allows most of the crew to escape...but not even any remains of the crew at all in this case.

A couple shots from my recently started Endless Space game as the Sophon race.  This game is amazing - I think it's the Turn-Based 4X to top them all,  if it continues to get this final beta stage work done well.

And yes, I do like the "card game" battles, although I wish there was a bit more time given in between rounds.

Well see its like this, the Americans attacked me first.  I had no choice but to defend myself and take one of their cities as a buffer with the French who in turned attacked me.  :)

As for the Aztecs I haven't even met them in the game.  I am playing as the Huns and apparently one of their abilities is being able to use other civilizations names when they build their cities.  I am really not sure what the point of that is.  :o

awesome map and awesome looking game - purely for pedantic reasons - true start locations? Nottingham is in island, there is a mystery block of land to the west of ireland with canterbury on, and yorks in scotland - other than that have it BH  :)
Title: Re: Share your Screenshots!
Post by: Barthheart on June 27, 2012, 04:56:05 AM
True start locations means your capital starts where it is historically located. All other cities can be founded where you like. Also resources are historically placed... no horses in N. America etc.

The mystery bit of land west of Ireland is supposed to be Iceland.

While it's a fun map I think there are better ones out there. Look for Y(n)AEM - Yet (not) Another Earth Map. It's proportions are better but it's a real PC resource hog.

A quick wikichop shows that the 'Thud' could carry more ordinance that a B-17 or B24 and was, in fact, the largest single engine, single seat combat aircraft in history. It was actually originally meant to be a penetration bomber with an internal bomb bay containing a single thermonuclear weapon.

Yes.  But if you pre-order, you get it three days early on the 19th! You actually get access to the game now with all scenarios, but you cannot resolve a turn, so you really just get to look around and explore.

I rarely play it these days, but occasionally drop in for a bit.  There's always a bunch of new stuff after my long absence so it can be tough to catch up sometimes.

It's interesting that some genres despite the explosion of gamers and games haven't seen any worthy successors to such venerables titles.

Nothing has surpassed the balance of business, railroading, and ruthless AI as RT1/RTD.

Despite the glitz of SH3 ... These games were without wolfpacks.

No game since 1830PC has so captured business as a tool and stock manipulations.

No game has attempted in such an encompassing way to capture the dynamics of running a business since Capitalism 1&2.

RSR was the first and last game to offer a dynamic WWIII SSN campaign.

No game has capture macro level poker game of the Cold War since BOP.

Or how about the high stakes and daring game of calculated gambles that took the USA and USSR into space.

One of the things I love about my many old games was not that simply for their day, they were unique innovative ... Many years later they are still the best representation we have in interactive digital media of certain events and history.

Can't agree more about Twilight Struggle. It's the #1 rated game on BoardgameGeek for a reason. If you preorder it's only $30. Roughly 40% savings.

Interesting.  Well, I'll see how it is received.

I am definitely not a "pre-order" type of person.  I am a wait a few years type of buyer when the price has dropped, all bugs are fixed or it is clear the game was abandoned with bugs, and the modders have done their thing.

Well, you don't have to be on your first game to deliver cr*p.  Some companies have managed to consistently hit that mark for years.

The reality of games is that majority are hyped by developers/publishers, reviewers, game sites, and gamers.

A few years ago, for my own amusement, I went back and looked at release reviews of a large number of games which had been on the market for many years already.  Many games that were years later regarded as ordinary to mediocre received good to decent reviews upon release.  This pattern persists to this day.  So, you have a much better chance of buying quality and enjoyment when you buy late than when you buy early.  The only strong argument I know of for buying on Day #1 is if you love multi-player ... then each day you delay, you are losing ground to the rest of the playing community.  (Of course, by that logic, if winning is so important, then you should make sure you get accepted into the beta testing program.)

i also like to go back in time occassionally and play those games from years ago that were 'you must upgrade your system now to play this AWESOME game', and have it not even put a dent in my graphics card and play on full and best and enjoy the splendour of the game that reviewers for magazines who didnt have to pay 2k for the pc to play it on got to see

Totally agree. I'm gonna say i've had slightly more favorable surprises than dissapointing ones when buying on release. If the game is rushed for release date and you do wait for some time before buying you don't get to deal with any early release bugs thanks to subsequent patching.

I don't think they are actually "making out."  it is more likely that its just awkward clipping during actual gameplay that was caught in a screenshot at exactly the right moment. You'll notice they are on opposite teams.

I don't think they are actually "making out."  it is more likely that its just awkward clipping during actual gameplay that was caught in a screenshot at exactly the right moment. You'll notice they are on opposite teams.

Nice Ghost screens Jarhead.  I remember everyone of those missions.  I need to get back to that game and start playing again.  Does the PC version play any different/better than the Xbox version?
Title: Re: Share your Screenshots!
Post by: Keunert on September 15, 2012, 07:55:38 AM
wow Jarhead, is this played on a tv?

i like the game really. i had some reservations about the Normandy demo: crashes, no clue how to overcome german defences and what not.
this time it went from the first mission in a way that felt natural to me. the orders i issued were executed and the fight was intense. i had  a
combat mission 1 flashback.

i will think about buying it.

W8...at first it took me awhile to transition from the console version to the PC port, but now that I've been playing the PC version for a good bit, I'm hooked again.

Keunert, I'm playing on my PC, but the screens look a bit warped I guess because they are poor quality shots.  They look really sharp on my screen in game, though.

Post by: jomni on September 21, 2012, 09:05:09 AM
Yup Haul-in-1 is my company for the AirHauler Add-On.  I did the paints myself.  The trick is to have a very good paint kit (photoshop template).  Some add-on planes don't have nice paintkits.  But the good ones can show a lot of detail.  I can only do text and colors.  Nothing really fancy.

And now, hauling cargo on the ground.  Train Simulator 2013 is out and Train Simulator 2012 owners get a free upgrade.  Pictures are a bit grainy for some reason.  It uses the Steam screenshot function.

Alright I think I'm going nuts.  I've flown cargo planes and drove freight trains.  Now I'm trying the demo of the Scania Truck Driving Simulator.  Great graphics. The truck handles really well even by just using the keyboard.

I've finally gotten comfortable with parking the truck.  Reversing with a trailer attached is quite difficult!  There is an auto parking function but I don't use it.  I think parking is the highlight of a mission, like landing planes. :)

I like what I'm seeing and will probably buy it soon and blog about it.

Jomni - will you "link" your games? By that I mean drive Take a frieght train with a load to the depot, fire up Truck Simulator with a load and head off to the airport then jump in Air Hauler  and fly the load somewhere? Broken I know - just asking.

I have FSX (I actually uninstalled it for a bit so I could concentrate on other things). I recently bought Train Simulator 2012 and wasn't dissatisfied with it (and thanks for clearing up on 2013 - I was wondering why I had it!)...and was thinking] about Truck Simulator - but I think it's the kind of game that will only get a little exposure - so should wait for a sale.

Having said all that - I bought AGEoDs new game and haven't loaded it up yet - go figure!

Hey that's not a bad idea.  But of course there's no way of actually link the games.  Maybe linking the sessions (with a bit of roleplaying and imagination).

Scania Truck driver is amazing!  The game has advanced significantly from their previous titles (18 Wheels Steel, Euro Truck Sim, German Truck Sim). I loaded the demo of Euro and German Truck Sims last night. Graphics are dated and the controls aren't smooth. 

I think you should just wait it out.  Euro Truck Sim 2 is gonig to be released soon. They are trying to get a Greenlight on Steam.  Even better if you wait for a sale.
Title: Re: Share your Screenshots!
Post by: JudgeDredd on September 27, 2012, 02:06:56 AM
Yeah - I know you couldn't actually link them.

I was thinking you could maybe do a blog on it. It be pretty cool if you could paint your truck/train with your FSX company logo too. Also (for "realism" I don't know if you'd be able to create a scenario in Truck Simulator where you could start at a train yard and deliver to an airport - though that would be candy :p ).

I thought it might make a cool blog.

I was happy that they didn't have the annoying Breath Bar Of Death.  So, yes, you can go swimming underwater indefinitely in GW2. 

I just hope that they have an occasional dungeon or large area where you're mostly underwater.  I've only seen little river areas thus far.

Wow.  I didn't know the game had SCUBA!

ArenaNet had a stated aim of making underwater areas fun as opposed to the horror they normally are in MMORPGs.  In a way they've succeeded because they've definitely improved for GW2.  Overall, however, they still suck; there are a couple of maps I haven't got 100% completion on yet because I can't be arsed to do the underwater areas.

Heh, yep.  I love this game!  It's everything I hoped it would be - one of those rare but happy times when a game actually lives up to massive amounts of hype.

Nefaro, I've seen larger underwater areas - there's one in Gendarran Fields that springs to mind - but no dungeons.  I think ANet would be mental to make a whole dungeon underwater!

I don't see why they wouldn't make a (largely) underwater dungeon.  They even have weapon-skill sets that can only be used underwater.  So why wouldn't they give us more variety in that sense?  I don't think it would be bad, if it were a smaller one or one that is partially underwater.  8)

That is a good review, and neatly sums up some of the reasons that I love Guild Wars 2.  I especially liked her description of the game being just the right level of difficulty, "playful and mischievous" as opposed to outright hostile.  Nail...head.

Post by: Toonces on October 08, 2012, 01:30:19 AM
Meanwhile....

A while back, probably on Wargamer, I had explored playing Morrowind using the Morroblivion mod vs. the Morrowind graphics overhaul mod.  I went with Morroblivion first.  Morroblivion gives you the option of essentially linking the two worlds together such that you can travel between them and it makes it one big game running under the Oblivion engine.  This means you get the Oblivion map, journal, quest markers, etc. in Morrowind.  Also, the graphics are updated to Oblivion levels. 

I liked that at first, but when I took my Knights of the Nine-equipped fighter from Oblivion into Morrowind...it just didn't feel right.  I have trouble explaining it, but basically I felt like I wasn't playing Morrowind anymore.  Something clashed in my fen shui or whatever.

So tonight, thinking it was time to give Morrowind one last attempt, I installed the Morrowind Graphics Overhaul 2.0 mod.  It's about 1.9GB.  Extracts as a stand alone .exe that does all the heavy lifting for you.

I installed that, did a little troubleshooting because I had a few graphics anomalies, and got it running.  I have to say WOW does it look good.  It is your standard Morrowind, but it looks about 100 times better.  I'm running it on pretty much max settings; there might be a few more options to turn up but I don't want to mess it up now that it runs solidly. 

Anyway, when I finally entered Balmora at the beginning of the game, I was pretty blown away.  I highly recommend this mod if you haven't played Morrowind before, or if you were just turned off by the old graphics.

Actually the amounts may be large but the money can be used up pretty quickly for a big empire with several colonies expanding their own economies and a massive ship building program to defend your borders.

I have no idea what people see in this set of sims - I really don't.

The graphics are from the 90s, the gameplay isn't great and the flight model is pretty rubbish

I'd be interested in what keeps you playing it...accessibility? The ease of the gameplay?

I "re-bought" Strike Fighters 2 and/or Vietnam a while back when I read a book about an F105 pilots experience in Vietnam (http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/0891418547/ref=wms_ohs_product (http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/0891418547/ref=wms_ohs_product)) and loved the book and wanted to fly some F105s - but I was out of it within a day...I really found nothing in it.

Actually simplicity is the selling point of Strike Fighters.  You can just hop into any plane and do your thing.  It's not a study sim like DCS.  Flight dymamics are not arcade.  They are quite realistic and you need real-world tactics to succeed.  Focus is on the combat and not on the operation of the aircraft. 

Gameplay-wise, it has a random / semi-dynamic campaign engine that none of the modern sims have.

Graphics is scalable so if you have a more modern machine, you can take advantage of Dx10 rendering.  Below are my screens of the same game series that Oche is playing.

(http://lh3.ggpht.com/-Q5PryKh75BE/TyfuS3CwyqI/AAAAAAAACBY/jkP5m0d8DtY/s1600/img00006%25255B4%25255D.jpg)

But I have lost some interest in the game lately and Thirdwire's attitude is not helping.  TK does not want to make things more realistic and wants to simplify things more.  Thus we now have Strike Fighters Android.   ???

Strike Fighters Israel has new terrain graphics in it.  It was added for that one (the next to last release, now).  I suppose it's also in the North Atlantic release since that one is newer. 

If you do a merge install, the newer terrain graphics will be applied in the older ones, too.

The biggest problem I had, last time I installed a couple Strike Fighters games, was the godawful Patch mess I had to go through to get it up to speed.  And even then, after digging up all the various patches I needed and applying them, there was a nasty hotkey setting bug that kept jacking up my button settings I made for my joystick.  It was so fookeen annoying, I gave up in disgust between the multiple varied patch searching and the key setting bug.   

Hopefully that sheezt has been fixed by now, and a single update package created.  It still makes me a bit pissy thinking about  the time I spent on it.

Guild Wars 2

Me and some guildmates after clearing the Ascalon Catacombs dungeon in story mode!  We did it, without a single wipe!  It was really hard though.  In particular, a pair of mesmer bosses toward the end were almost impossible to kill.  One of them kept up an almost constant shield that knocked back anyone who got into melee range - very annoying for me playing as a guardian.  However, I think I was able to use my skills quite successfully; I was using "Save Yourselves!" whenever an ally had lots of conditions, I was keeping my Snow Wurm up, using my general protection buffs as needed, and using my elite skill to become a werewolf whenever I could to deal lots of damage.

I enjoyed it more than I expected to. :)

Kickin' it Ole Skewl with Might & Magic 4-5: World Of Xeen.  Got the M&M 6-pack for something like $3.50 at GOG.

It looks even more pixelated because I set the Scaler-Filter to resize 3x instead of the normal 2x that DOSbox does.

Here's the same game's screenshot at original non-resized resolution, for comparison  ;):

Sure, it looks far better at original, or even only 2x size, but squinting to read those is more of a chore.

Patches don't come frequently anymore.  The game a new update feature in-game. 
Patches do break mods once in a while and that's one of my frustrations.

Guild Wars 2

So.  Take a look at the following scene:

(http://i47.tinypic.com/35jcca1.jpg)

There's a vista at the end of that icy run around the side of a cliff.  I wanted to get it.  That run is longer than it looks, and filled with Sons of Svanir.  I start ploughing my way through them.  They put up a fight but I make it to the end, only to find a veteran.  Normally you can solo veterans, but this one was surrounded by allies, summoned more of them, and had lethal AoE attacks that were really hard to dodge on such narrow ground.  I just couldn't quite beat him and got killed a couple of times, each time doggedly running back to try again.

In the end, after respawning at the nearest waypoint I spot a couple of players finishing off a quest.  I ask them if they want to go tag the vista with me and they agree.  We form a party and set off.  This time it's infinitely easier.  We cut through the mobs like a hot knife through butter.  We make it to the end and focus down the veteran with no problem, taking barely ten seconds to mop up the rest of the mobs.  And then, oh look!  A chest!  We pillage it and admire our new-found trinkets.  Then we thank each other for the mutual support and go our separate ways.

Two minutes later, I remembered.  I didn't go on and tag the vista, my original reason for being there.  Aaaarrrrrggghhhhhh!

Oddly enough, I recall reading somewhere that the FSX software has bits of code for weapons and combat damage hidden under the hood, waiting to be activated by someone with the will and the insight. Of course, I could have just dreamed the whole thing up during a fever as well. Reality is subjective that way sometimes...

There are weapons add-ons but they're useless since there's no combat AI.  Your opponents will not dodge or try to shoot you down.

Jack, yeah, I like the Ov-1 Mohawk as well, and have a couple for FSX.

The only De jure provinces I don't own are Sardinia, Corsica, and the papal provinces. Anyone know whats happens when you declare war on the pope in CK2? I figure all of western Europe will declare war on  me if I do.

Looks like that's coming along nicely.

The general consensus is that you don't want to p!ss off the Pope.  One thing you may not realize is that even if you conquer his lands by force before he persuades the whole of western europe (or just a handful of them) to stomp you , he will be given a new demesne by one of the other christian leaders.  So he will not just disappear, and angering him would likely be a long-term prospect if you WarDec him.  It's also probably quite (extra?) difficult to successfully assassinate him, too.

I'd only mess with the Pope if it was a last option.  There are always juicier targets around that are less of a headache to deal with.  :)  But there are always stories of trouncing the guy with little worry, so such a venture could turn out okay, especially if the Pope dies in the process and gets replaced with a new one with land somewhere else.
Title: Re: Share your Screenshots!
Post by: Kushan on October 29, 2012, 01:04:08 AM
Messing with the pope would be more trouble then its worth. Sure, his lands are rich, but your right, pissing off the rest of christian Europe wouldn't be worth it.

I've since added Provence and Grison to my kingdom. I've got 5 retinues equaling 2500 troops (2 heavy, 1 archer, and 2 cavalry) and can raise another 12k+ from both my demense and the rest of my vassals. If my king lasts another year I can take to rest of Swabia. I'd really like to take southern Italy from the Byzantines, but they've been in a constant state of war with the Muslims in Sicily and have been throwing around stacks about as large as the HRE himself.

I'm reminded of the original Medieval Total War:  If you conquered Rome and eliminated the Pope, Rome and/or the Papal States would begin spawning huge stacks of Loyalist uber-troops in rebellion against your rule.  It was insane.

Thanks.  NF5 is a good mod update, however it does require both of the SF2 expansions (not sure if they are a must).  I love flying the F-4 as well, this one is the 86' campaign and the F-4 are outfitted with Mavericks for close air support.

I really like the ship design.

Post by: Jarhead0331 on October 31, 2012, 03:46:11 PM
I absolutely love the aesthetic of the human ships in SOTS II.  They are very utilitarian and you can pretty much guess the purpose of each class of ship just by looking at it.  there are a lot of neat little concepts in the game too...just take the weapon test system.  No other game that I'm aware of lets you test your firing arcs, the power of your weapon arrays and strength of your point-defense and armor systems.

I also like the mission based fleet tasking.  Its somewhat annoying that once a mission is successful, the fleet has to first travel back to its home base before being available for new mission orders, but I think realistically, in the vast void of deep space, this is almost how it would have to be done, at least from a logistics and communications perspective.

This game is definitely worth a buy though, if you love these kinds of space games like I do.  I knew from day one, if it was patched and supported, it would definitely be a game worth owning. It will be interesting to see how it improves from here.

Anyway, I will post some more pics tonight.

Usurped the Kingdom of Lotharingia. One of the previous kings vassals was revolting for control of it, I pressed my minor claim and swept in and took it from both of them. Only issue I have is my income dropped from 18 gold a month to 3.5. Not sure what happened, I know the majority of my vassals are not happy that I had their troops raised for so long, but all but one or two are still in the green by a 20-30 points.

Thanks. That war was a bit rough, but was one of the most fun I've had. Usually its just me running over some poor count or duke that never stood a chance in the first place. Was a 3 way fight. I had to split my army into 3 forces. Had 2 siegeing enemy provinces, while the 3rd was running around preventing the other two factions from taking back provinces. Then about 3/4 of the way into it, the other two factions reconciled and the previous king was able to raise a lot more levies.

Now if I could only figure out why my income dropped so much. Going to have to wait a little bit for the vassals to become happy with me again. I can already see how much "fun" its going to be to hold everything together when it comes time for my heir to take the throne.

Don't forget to disband all your levies after you're done!

You probably did, but sometime I miss something and wonder why my income is so thin, until I see one of my armies hanging out somewhere.

Post by: Kushan on November 01, 2012, 09:54:15 PM
When I reloaded my game, my income was back up to 23 per month. Whats going to be a bigger problem is my succession. I was looking over things, my heirs wife has the homosexual trait and they have yet to produce an heir. I've seen it before in one of the cadet branches of my family and they still had 2-3 kids, so I'm hoping for at least 1. If not, then the succession would pass to my second son, who has the imbecile trait, and his son has it to. My third son is average. Too early to tell with the 4th, but from his basic stats, he has the potential to have the high diplomacy rating my current king does. Only hard part is getting him to the throne. A lot of killing would have to be done, and my intrigue isn't high enough to prevent me from being discovered. This games going to get interesting....I love it lol

i had the same problem when I loaded the game for the first time after the last patch.  However, I exited and rebooted and its been pretty smooth ever since.  Give it another shot, or play with the settings.  Make sure you're not in windowed mode.  My game seems to run much smoother in full screen mode.

Post by: Jarhead0331 on November 03, 2012, 08:42:49 AM
It varies, depending on the sophistication of your C3 technology. The more advanced your command and communication tech gets, the larger your fleet can be. Average fleet size for me is about 10 vessels. This does not include drones or battle riders.

I love the research options, colonization, ship design, etc.  I'm just getting into diplomacy now so its a bit early to comment.  The economy appears to be very complicated, as well, and while I've learned how to manage it, I find there are sometimes oddities that I have yet been able to put my finger on.  However, I do not think its a problem with the game, just a problem with me not knowing the mechanics yet.  One thing that has become pretty obvious though is that many options seem to be very stripped down at first...but then as you conduct more research, your options increase.  However, at first, there is no indication that there are research imposed limitations...so that lead me to believe that certain aspects of the game appeared unfinished or weak, when in reality, I just hadn't unlocked certain technologies or theoretical concepts to broaden the game's possibilities.

I used to love Steel Panthers and if ever there is a game begging for an update - it'd be that one.

I'm only talking about graphically and interface...gameplay was superb. But I just couldn't play anything that looked like that now. I'm a bit of a graphics whore and on top of that - they just hurt my eyes. In fact, iirc I used to find it difficult to find units even back then! (which I guess maybe equates to excellent implementation of camouflage!)

I agree about graphics but i can wait as long as it takes for a worthy successor for the Steel Panthers series (which won't be easy to find), however, i'm sure that most of us grognards will not be cheated so easily by a game rushed out flooded with eyecandy galore ;D and raw buggy gameplay. At least we have been having updates of WINSPWW2 and WINSPMBT making gameplay experience a lot better, and that will have to do for the time being.

I have the same issue with the close combat games too....graphics aren't horrible, although outdated, but what frustrates me the most, I can't freaking see my own units!  If they just did something to make that better, it would be a step in the right direction.

The problem with Steel Panthers is that the source code was released to the public domain with the caveat that no one make money on it.

So the game actually *has* been updated, but the only way to pay for that dev time is to sell scenarios and campaigns. The base game must be given away for free.

The result is the four-campaign pack from Matrix that is sold for $80. It's well worth it, but not everyone wants to pay that price.

I have noticed some bugs....

Also - if I'm honest, the locations for picking up/dropping off cargo is very, VERY samey. You ALWAYS have to park your trailer in the same place when you get to one of only 3 or 4 drop off points!

But - having said all that - for some reason I am still very much drawn to it and still play it - ALOT.

I've got a Renault.

I have noticed some bugs....
  • Train Crossing - lights were on so I slowed an stopped. Waited ages and could see the train sitting on the track down to the left - after about 5 minutes I moved across the crossing and stopped and looked and the trainw as now passing (only happened once)
  • Crazy Overtaking - AI LOVES to overtake about 1/2 a mile before it needs to
  • Crazy Overtaking - AI LOVES to vertake on bends
  • Speeding - you just can't seem to get fined in cities
  • Road Layout and Signs - not always making sense (sign says two lanes go forward and right hand one also has off ramp - but get to the junction and the of ramp IS the lane you're in - requiring you to move rather quickly to the left
  • Crashing Fines - AI crashes into you and YOU get fined
  • Traffic Standstill - had a few occasions where traffic was turning but couldn't, and the traffic that was preventing it wasn't moving either - resulting in me going round and up the bank a bit - look back and the traffic was still stuck
  • Job List - the job list doesn't show a complete list. I normally sort by origin (because of where I am) - but because of the number of jobs, my location of Sheffield won't show up - it seems the list only displays up to the number of dots displayed on the bottom (dots relating to pages of jobs) and once you get to that last dot (which might end at London) then you cannot display anymore jobs after that
  • AI Driver - totally useless. Often says can't find a job and I have no idea why - because there are more than can be displayed to you (see point above)...maybe it's linked to the point above!
  • Bank Loan Payment - why is there no option to pay a lump sum to the bank or adjust your payments so it pays off quicker?

Also - if I'm honest, the locations for picking up/dropping off cargo is very, VERY samey. You ALWAYS have to park your trailer in the same place when you get to one of only 3 or 4 drop off points!

But - having said all that - for some reason I am still very much drawn to it and still play it - ALOT.

I even saw an AI truck get run over by a train!!!
I gave up on the job list.  They need to have a better selection criteria like filtering by city.  The number of slots is not enough for all jobs the more cities you find.

Gaining that altitude.... we can chew the betties up.  If the escorts move in, it is time to hit and run.... no match for a turning and climbing battle with them.... you are right though, if the 40 gets you in his sights, not much to do but hit the silk.

Thanks for this, still have the game on my HD, but haven't played for years.  So your screenies inspired me to look up what's been going on in the IL2 world.  Looks to be alive and well.  I even see at least one server for multi-play "skies of valor".  Also the UltraPack info. 

Seems like UP is not compatible with latest official patch needed for online play, so now I have a decision to make.....go down the UltraPack mod route, or head for online play....

Anyway, thanks again PE.

No prob... I haven't played on a server in a long time, so I fired up some off-line campaigning with the DCG generator.  There are some quirks as it has been a while since it was updated, but works.  I did not look at HSFX to see where it is at, but it is really geared toward Scorched Earth Online War.  The community keeps going and going until a successor comes along.  I had fun flying the P40 as it is a tricky to pilot against superior foes.  Blue Skies

Kushan,

You're female ranger character is a vision of loveliness.  I'm gonna have to bust out Skyrim and play this again in my quote unquote infinite spare time.

Mods I use to get the look are:

Calientes Female Body Mod Big Bottom Edition (CBBE)
navetsea skin textures
Better Females By Bella Natural Edition (Requires Better Females by Bella)

Be aware that both CBBE and navetsea skin textures are nude mods.

I also use the Improved Eyes Skyrim and natural eyes mods, but unless you look really close you can't tell the difference between the modded and unmodded eyes.

Skyrim does require a lot of time to play, unless you fast travel everywhere and whats the fun in that. I tend to ride my horse or run everywhere and I tend to get distracted easily by unexplored caves, ruins, etc.

My Flaming Cliffs 3 F-15 sortie

I have NO IDEA what I was doing. I didn't know how to follow waypoints, the keys weren't working (I printed out the layout)...I think invulnerabilit was on - 'cos I made it back!

The keys themselves...Communications is "\" - pressing it did nothing. When I went to the game options to make sure it was working, I cleared it and re-assigned it to "\" - only it showed as OEM102 or something. So "\" isn't "recognised" on my keyboard in the game, but OEM102 is? That's going to make key binding and printing off difficult...how the hell am I meant to look at the key binding sheet and workout what OEM102 is??

Anyway - sorry - screenies. This IS a beautiful game

Key configuration sure is a pain. And you have to do that for each plane in FC3.   That the reason why I'm just sticking with A-10.
Title: Re: Share your Screenshots!
Post by: JudgeDredd on November 22, 2012, 12:47:37 AM
I know it's "a pain" generally - having to do each craft etc...but I'm talking specifically about the key it's assigning. If I left that new assignment (OEM102) then it's print out as that on the html key bindings sheet - and I'd never know what the hell those were!

So it's not that's it's a pain (though it is) but that it's unusable - and therefore I can't operate the aircraft because alot of the default keybindings for some reason don't work.

I'll post at DCS - maybe it's a BETA thing - I sure hope so - because it's unplayable if the key codes are going to show OEM???
Title: Re: Share your Screenshots!
Post by: JudgeDredd on November 22, 2012, 02:13:01 AM
It seems it's only the "\" key. I went through all the keys and that's the only one that showed a code...also I found that assigning the # key on the Comms Menu to bind it to - it already showed that it's bound to the Comms Menu...so it's something to do with the keyboard/regional setting I guess.

And it happens on DCS A-10C Sim (the only other one I tried) so it could be a DCS World thing.

Well I've posted at DCS anyway

You can count on the Americans for providing us with "state-of-the art" aircraft.  >:(

I flew a British Phantom on a strike mission in Strike Fighters 2.

I eventually got shot down by a SAM (no pictures).  These export Phantoms can't defend themselves against more modern missiles.  No ECM, no chaff and flare.  We can't even mount countermeasures on the pylons.

I did not dogfight. I kept them at some distance.  I was hoping my wingman would protect me when someone fest close.  I evaded and bled a lot of speed with those bombs. That's probably when the SAM got me.

Doesn't look like he was shaking that MiG-23 off so very well so I don't think he actually succeeded at it.   That some serious disadvantage, there.  :o     The -23 isn't exactly a very good dogfighter either, but if it's still got some heaters or is in gun range at that point, it'll be just a matter of time.  ;D 

The thing I'd be concerned about is why enemy SAMs are firing while they have friendly fighters in such close proximity, if he was shot down by a SAM while on the defensive with that MiG.   I didn't think Russian SAM crews (or most any for that matter) would normally be allowed to fire in that situation.

I don't recall how passive the AI aircraft are in Strike Fighters 2 right now, but I recall that in the original, many would just do lazy circles in the air until you shot them down while only a few were real aggressive.  I think that improved quite a bit, though, in the sequel.

The AI aircraft are not passive.  There's just too many enemy planes flying around.  This is the usual scenario in Strike Fighters Europe.   Less of a problem in Vietnam or Middle East.
Well with regards to the SAM, they will fire at you all the time in this game.  I'm pretty sure that the SAM is radar guided as indicated by my warning system and it will have no chance of hitting that MiG my mistake.  I just don't have ECM and counter measures to defeat that radar SAM threat.   If I resort to wild maneuvers, the F-4 will bleed out speed so fast.  It's a no win situation that I shouldn't be in in the first place.  I replayed the mission and just dumped my bombs (aborted), engaged some MiGs beyond visual range with Sparrows.  And went home.

Some screens from our Iron Front game today.  (Shots taken by Saghen at SimHQ).

First mission was a co-op with us playing as the Soviets.  Task was to ambush a German supply convoy, knock out a roadblock, and exfiltrate.  It went well.  We only lost one guy.

Second mission was a German assault across a Soviet-held bridge with the goal of securing the crossing and knocking out some AA guns on the far side.

Again, it went well and we only lost two (one from friendly fire.  He was squished by our half-track)

Great shots!

The camo on those German trucks looks a little 'off' though. I wonder if the texture file used should have been enlarged- those lines should be thicker and crisscross more. Also, there should be more dunklegelb showing. IIRC the camo was applied by the soldiers in the field and they usually only had a few cans per vehicle. That pattern looks almost post war jungle style.

Is Iron Front already enjoyable?  Or do I have to build my own missions since the stock ones don't work well?  Ah what the hell. I bought it since it's on sale.
Title: Re: Share your Screenshots!
Post by: Silent Disapproval Robot on November 24, 2012, 07:13:59 PM
The single player campaign missions are not very good at all.  They throw unrealistic goals at you and the wonky ArmA AI just compounds the problem because your AI squad mates will usually walk straight into machine-gun fire unless ordered to hold back.  Therefore you have to constantly micro-manage them and do all the work yourself.  I had kill tallies of 140+ enemies per mission on a regular basis.  That involved a tonne of trial and error, save and reload, and using a lot of cheap tactics to exploit the game's weaknesses.  If you are hoping to play offline, I would not recommend the game.  It's really only good for online play.  That being said, there are a lot of online scenarios included in the game for both co-op and head to head and a lot more available for download.  The biggest drawback is that, unlike ArmA, the Iron Front is not moddable so you're stuck with the toys they give you.

EDIT:
Patch 1.04 is now available.  I find that it really improves frame rates but the texture loading times are worse.  I get a lot of delay in how long it takes for the game to load the hi-res textures so I get a lot of crappy looking buildings and bushes for 5-15 seconds before the textures load.

I'm in the opening part of the operation, where not much armor has arrived for either side yet.  I have a battery of Panzerjaegers north of the town that I used in a prior engagement, but that have retreated to repair and rearm.  To the south I have a platoon of Marders that are still in reserve.  The Soviets have elements of a tank brigade coming from the east.

3 Block War....Pentagon Kiosk...decision points:

General:

File: boot999.wav (Dialog shows up if user does not target their order at the correct location in Block 1-3)
To issue orders use the track ball to position the pointer over your team, then right-click to bring up the orders menu. To fire or move, click on the corresponding menu item and then drag the targeting cursor to where the arrow indicates the target or destination, and then left-click to select the target.  To defend, simply click the “Defend” menu item.


Block 1:

File: boot100.wav
The "Strategic Corporal"
Tactical Decision-making Simulation
 
Marines are often confronted by the entire spectrum of tactical challenges in the span of a few hours within the space of three contiguous city blocks.2

Situation: The security situation in the country of Orange has deteriorated following the overthrow of the former dictator by local freedom fighters. The United States Marines Corps has been sent in to help restore order and stability to the country.


File: boot101.wav
Block 1: Traditional Warfighting

You are in command of 1st squad. Your mission is to secure an armory belonging to the former dictator's Internal Security Force. Some of the members of this ex-security force have gone underground. The weapons must be kept out of their hands.


File: boot102.wav
Block 1: Traditional Warfighting

The local freedom fighters have been celebrating their victory, driving around in their cars and firing their weapons into the air. They have agreed to disarm voluntarily at midnight tonight, but we need to make sure they don't try to take the weapons in the armory to secretly maintain their arms.


File: boot103.wav
(Radio message) "This is second fire team. A group of armed men is approaching our position from the north. They're wearing Orange military uniforms. Permission to open fire? Over.”


File: boot104.wav
To make your decision, right-click on second fire team. You may order them to FIRE on the approaching armed men, or to DEFEND and hold their fire in an attempt to avoid combat.


File: boot105.wav (User chooses to defend)
(Radio message) "This is second fire team, they ... Johnson! I said hold your fire! They're rushing the armory! Can we fire? Over!"


File: boot106.wav (User chooses to fire)
(Radio message) "This is second fire team. They're throwing down their weapons and surrendering. Out."


File: boot107.wav
Mission Success
The armed men were former Orange ISF members attempting to loot the armory. They quickly surrender when taken under fire.


File: boot108.wav
(Radio message) "This is third fire team. There's a dust plume on the road and I can hear vehicles approaching from the west. Over."


File: boot109.wav (Currently used – this step was cut to shorten scenario)
(Radio Message) "This is third fire team. We've got a heavy machine gun firing to our west. I can see the tracers going straight up in the air. Sounds like the fire is coming from the approaching vehicles. Over."


File: boot110.wav (User chooses to fire)
(Radio Message) "This is third fire team. Two civilian vehicles in sight now, approaching fast. One car and one pickup with a machine gun mounted on the back. Should we fire? Over."


File: boot111.wav
To make your decision, right-click on third fire team. You may order them to FIRE on the approaching vehicles, or to DEFEND and hold their fire in an attempt to avoid combat.



File: boot112.wav (Choose fire at car – MG pickup returns fire)
(Radio message) "This is third fire team. They're returning fire! I say again, we're taking fire! Over!"


File: boot113.wav (Choose defend)

(Radio message) "This is third fire team. The two cars kept going to the east. Looks like they're continuing into the city. Over."


File: boot114.wav
Mission Success
The vehicles were local freedom fighters celebrating their victory. They apparently had no intention of looting the armory.


File: boot115.wav
Mission Failure

The armed men where former Orange Internal Security personnel. By remaining passive you gave them the chance to rush your men and possibly gain control of the armory.


File boot116.wav
Mission Failure

The vehicles were local freedom fighters celebrating their victory. Firing on them could destroy the disarmament agreement and jeopardize efforts to stabilize the country.


File boot117.wav
Congratulations!

You have successfully completed this tactical decision making simulation. You kept the weapons in the armory secure and avoided causing an international incident that might have jeopardized our disarmament agreement with the local freedom fighters.


Block 2:

File: boot200.wav
The "Strategic Corporal"
Tactical Decision-making Simulation
 
Marines are often confronted by the entire spectrum of tactical challenges in the span of a few hours within the space of three contiguous city blocks.

Situation: The security situation in the country of Orange has deteriorated following the overthrow of the former dictator by local freedom fighters. The United States Marine Corps has been sent in to help restore order and stability to the country.


File: boot201.wav
Block 2: Peace-keeping

A local political group, the Cerulean party, is holding a funeral for a party leader who was killed in the recent unrest. A rival group, the Crimson party, has threatened to disrupt the funeral. The Cerulean party has requested a US Marine escort.


File: boot202.wav
You are in command of 2nd squad. Your mission is to escort the Cerulean funeral party. This is an opporunity to demonstrate our commitment to restoring stability in Orange, and to earn the trust of the local inhabitants. Attempt to prevent conflict with the Crimson party if at all possible, but you are authorized to respond with force if attacked.


File: boot203.wav (Current unused – this step was cut to shorten scenario)
(Radio message) "This is first fire team. We've reached the first turn and we are proceeding north past the mosque. Over."


File: boot204.wav
(Radio message) "This is first fire team. We've got a mob of angry civilians who just rushed into the square by the mosque. They're blocking our route. Over."


File: boot205.wav
(Radio message) "Some of the funeral procession just broke off and they're confronting the mob in the square. Over."


File: boot206.wav
(Radio message) "This is first fire team. We've got two mobs throwing rocks at each other in the square now. Looks like this could get ugly fast. How do you want us to handle this? Over."


File: boot207.wav
To make your decision, right-click on first fire team. You may order them to FIRE on the mob blocking the funeral route or to MOVE FAST and get in between the two rock-throwing mobs in an attempt to defuse the situation.


File: boot208.wav (User chooses to fire on mob)
(Radio message) "This is first fire team. The mob is scattering. The funeral procession broke up and ran, too. We're going to need corpsmen here on the double. Over."


File: boot209.wav (User chooses to run between mobs)
(Radio message) "This is first fire team. Both mobs stopped throwing rocks when we moved in between. Leaders in both groups are  talking to them. It looks like both sides are going to back down. Over."

File: boot210.wav
(Radio message) "This is first fire team. The civilians blocking our route are leaving now. Will proceed. Out."

File: boot211.wav
(Radio message) "This is first fire team! The procession is taking sniper fire! Sniper is in a tower 200 meters to our northwest. Are we cleared to return fire? Over."


File: boot212.wav
To make your decision, right-click on first fire team. You may order them to FIRE at the tower where the sniper is located (indicated by the arrow in the upper left corner of the screen) or DEFEND to take cover and hold their current position.


File: boot213.wav (User chooses to defend)
(Radio message) "This is first fire team. The sniper is still firing at the funeral procession. The civilians are running for it now ... The procession has broken up. Out."


File: boot214.wav (User chooses to fire at sniper)
(Radio message) "This is first fire team. Looks like we got him. No more fire coming from that tower. Civilians are on the move again. Out."


File: boot215.wav
Mission Failure

The mob blocking the funeral route was a group of Crimson party supporters. Firing on them caused civilian casualties and the violence broke up the funeral procession, too. This may gravely weaken our international credibility as peacekeepers.


File: boot216.wav
Mission Failure

The sniper was a member of a radical group determined to undermine the Marine peacekeeping efforts. With no protection from the sniper the civilians broke and ran. Failure to protect the funeral procession has hurt our international credibility and may undermine our efforts to stabilize security in Orange.


File: boot217.wav
Congratulations!

You have successfully completed this tactical decision making simulation. You broke up the skirmish between the Cerulean and Crimson parties without disrupting the funeral march, and used force when necessary to protect the procession from a sniper.


Block 3:

File: boot300.wav
The "Strategic Corporal"
Tactical Decision-making Simulation
 
Marines are often confronted by the entire spectrum of tactical challenges in the span of a few hours within the space of three contiguous city blocks.

Situation: The security situation in the country of Orange has deteriorated following the overthrow of the former dictator by local freedom fighters. The United States Marine Corps has been sent in to help restore order and stability to the country.


File: boot301.wav
Block 3: Humanitarian Assistance

Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) have been distributing humanitarian aid in Orange since the overthrow of the former government. Radical groups have recently begun to target the humanitarian groups in an effort to drive them out.


File: boot302.wav
You are in command of 3rd squad. Your mission is to protect a food distribution point and prevent any disruption of the humanitarian assistance operations. You are authorized to use force if necessary to protect your men or the civilians gathered at the distribution site.


File: boot303.wav
(Radio message) "This is third fire team. We've spotted four guys, about 100m north of our position. They're low crawling towards  the old trench line. Over."


File: boot304.wav
(Radio message) "This is third fire team. Those guys know we've spotted them. They're armed and making a run for the trench. Should we open fire? Over."


File: boot305.wav
To make your decision, right-click on third fire team. You may order them to FIRE on the approaching armed men, or to DEFEND and hold their positions, trying to avoid an incident.


File: boot306.wav (User chooses to fire)
(Radio message) "This is third fire team. Target neutralized. Looked like some of them might have run away to the north, but they're no threat now. Out."


File: boot307.wav (User chooses to defend)
(Radio message) "This is third fire team. The guys to the north are firing into the crowd! The civilians are running! Over."


File: boot308.wav
Mission Failure

We failed to protect the food distribution operation. This will damage our reputation as international peacekeepers and weaken our support among the local population. NGOs may begin to pull out too, further exasperating the situation.


File: boot309.wav
Congratulations!

You have successfully completed this tactical decision making simulation. You drove off the radical strike team before they could disrupt the food distribution operation. Demonstrating our ability to protect the civilians and aid workers will strengthen our reputation among the locals and help to stabilize the situation in Orange.

File: boot430.wav
The "Strategic Corporal"
Tactical Decision-making Simulation

Real-Time Scenario: Family Day Disturbance  (ALSO  one file as National Holiday Disturbance)

Situation: The United States Marine Corps has been conducting stability and support operations in the nation of Orange since the overthrow of the former dictator, one year ago. Your company has been tasked with establishing instructor Cadres at the Gendarme Barracks at three different locations in the country. The company has split up into platoon-sized elements.


File: boot431.wav
A local faction has resorted to terrorism to destabilize the situation and convince the population that only they can  provide protection. The terrorists have conducted hit and run attacks against local government forces. To date, U.S. forces have not been targeted. Local intelligence sources are indicating this is going to change.


File: boot432.wav
Today is a national holiday in honor of "Family." All government offices are closed and most employees are on leave. A police post located at the east gate to the city just reported that there is a large crowd coming towards the city from the east. Following this report, the police appear to have abandoned their post.


File: boot433.wav
You are in command of 2nd squad, 1st Platoon. You are ordered to conduct a patrol to the east gate and report on the situation. Rules of Engagement:  Deadly Force is authorized to protect life.


File: boot434.wav
This scenario will proceed in real-time. To issue orders to your three fire teams, move the trackball to highlight a team and then right-click to bring up the orders menu. Select your order and then (if necessary) indicate the destination or target by dragging the targeting line and left-clicking at the destination.


File: boot435.wav
A large crowd of yelling and chanting civilians is approaching from the east. Several people in the front of the crowd are pointing at third fire team, shouting angrily, and waving the crowd forward. Once you click this message the simulation will begin.


File: boot436.wav
Post Brief:

The crowd was a funeral procession going to bury a village dignitary. Two terrorists in the crowd incited the people into throwing rocks at the Marines. The large explosion was a black-market propane gas storage facility, destroyed by a terrorist explosive device. The four men running towards the Mosque were the local Gendarme going to get a religious leader to help calm the crowd. The consequences of your decisions effect far more than just the local situation...


File: boot437.wav (Outcome – fire on crowd)
Mission Failure

News that U.S. forces fired on a crowd of civilians becomes a headline around the world in a matter of hours. This results in an international incident that damages our credibility in both the local and international community.  The newly elected government in Orange soon begins talks aimed at ending the U.S.-lead peace-keeping mission.


File: boot438.wav (Outcome – fire on gendarme or religious leader)
Mission Failure

News that U.S. forces fired into the area of a holy site becomes a headline around the world in a matter of hours. This results in an international incident that damages our credibility in both the local and international community.  Neighboring nations, whose populations are predominately the same faith as that of Orange, lodge formal diplomatic protests.  Without the support of the neighboring nations the future of the peace-keeping mission in Orange is uncertain.


File: boot439.wav (Outcome – no firing)
Mission Success

The local unrest and the destruction of a propane storage facility in Orange go largely unreported by the news media. The local religious leader extends his formal thanks to the Marines for showing restraint in a confused and threatening situation.

A little offbeat, but I found this interesting.  I recently agreed to a draw in a chess game against a much stronger opponent than me.  Even though the position was nebulous, I figured that chances of me pulling through to a victory were rather small considering the prowess of my opponent.  So I agreed to the draw.

Nonetheless, every mystery must be solved, so I loaded the final position into Chessmaster and had the computer play against itself.  Turns out it was quite the enigma to the computer as well!

(http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd70/CrusaderScott/Chess/ScreenHunter_02Dec100138.jpg)

It had to resort to brute force calculations to see this one through to a final result.  In the upper left, you can see it was pondering between 15 - 16 million positions at the height of its calculations.  It even triggered a high CPU usage warning message from Norton!  ;D

Turns out with perfect play, I could have won the game (I was black) in about 30 odd moves.  Oh well.

Sorry, I should have mentioned that. Yes it's SH5, heavily MODDED

The environment MOD I'm using is "Dynamic Environments" (http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=182377 (http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=182377)) , making this game a true beauty.

^Nice to see you around here Scott.

Thanks!  The internet drifter continues to drift with the tides.   ;)

Took some screenies from Battlefield 3 tonight (the new Aftermath maps are excellent!):

Just a view of a battlefield a helo was patrolling

(http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd70/CrusaderScott/Battlefield%203/bf32012-12-1101-04-36-026.jpg)
This is a shot of an IFV I destroyed with a suicide attack.  What had happened is that the IFV pinned down some of my team.  Seeing that I had some C4 on me, I decided to take advantage of the IFV's preoccupation with machine gunning my teammates and rushed the rear of the vehicle.  I got the C4 on and was retreating when I saw that big ol' gun start to aim at me.  :-\ Realizing I was doomed one way or the other, I decided to go down in a blaze of glory by detonating the C4 early, knowing I would go up with the vehicle.  And I did.  Fortunately, a medic was in the area and revived me!

Going into the attack

(http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd70/CrusaderScott/Battlefield%203/bf32012-12-1101-25-47-762.jpg)
Sniped this guy.  I guess I was too close to the target because the bullets went right through him and into the wall!

(http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd70/CrusaderScott/Battlefield%203/bf32012-12-1101-29-07-472.jpg)
Took a piece of this tank with a Javelin

(http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd70/CrusaderScott/Battlefield%203/bf32012-12-1101-33-43-302.jpg)
Still playing sniper.  I was hunkered down watching a fight take place just behind that building when this guy somehow sneaked through the carnage and ran...right into my sights  :)

Thanks!  The new Aftermath map pack is the first one since B2K that really has the old BF magic.  I just wish they would not have bothered to include such CoD elements as a crossbow and a new scavenger mode.  ::)  When is DICE going to learn that they can't beat Activision at their own game?

When patrolling British coastal waters, early in the war, fog is a blessing. It keeps aerial patrols off your back.  At the same time, Allied escorts have yet to be equipped with radar, making swift surface attacks a viable option.  In short: Fog + relatively calm sea = perfect hunting ground.

Also, it's under these conditions you, sooner or later, will realize that you haven't really lived, until you've been jumped by a hunter killer group.....with an attitude.

I wouldn't count on it.

After the SH5 Ubi DRM debacle, the sales were obviously pretty mediocre.  Enough for them to pull the SH5 team earlier than expected, and send them to other projects before all the planned updating was even done. 

Considering the series had always barely been getting the greenlight from Ubi management in the past, this was probably the last hurrah for the series (while Ubisoft has the rights).

While browser-based game engines have improved quite a bit lately, they are still pretty limited in scope from what I've seen thus far.  Ha! "Scope".  Punny.

I'm part of the beta.  So far so good but the servers are not always on.  There's a lot of potential but the it is important to get a lot of players from all time zones or else you get lop sided matches and swinging front lines.

Are the graphics really up-to-date? 

I suppose that multi-player games like that probably could be about as detailed, at least for a first-person shooter, since much of the calculations & info is done server-side anyway (bullet tracking, collision, and all that). 

I'm interested to see how the Silent Hunter Online browser-based one turns out.  That's something a bit different than a shooter or baseline RTS, though.  I fear some of the Simulation part will have to be cut out, even if it's only to minimize the total bandwidth required for the constant detection calculations & such.

This is, and has been, by far my favorite thread on these forums.  I decided to try to participate by downloading FRAPs (it was free) to take the game screenshots, but I can't get it to work with Decisive Campaigns or Battles from the Bulge. It works with other games but they aren't ones I wanted to post here.  Any suggestions on what I might be doing wrong with those games?  Thanks.
Title: Re: Share your Screenshots!
Post by: RooksBailey on December 15, 2012, 01:51:33 PM
I don't know why FRAPS isn't working, but you could try another program I use called Screenhunter Free:

http://www.wisdom-soft.com/products/screenhunter_free.htm

It is real easy to use.  Generally, I have to use both FRAPS and Screenhunter for screenshots because each program only seems to work with certain titles (FRAPS is great with Steam, while SH is great with older programs).

First time attempting to post a screenshot so any suggestions would be appreciated.  Using ScreenHunter 6 as suggested by RooksBailey.   This is from Battles from the Bulge, the Battle of the Roadblocks scenario, playing as the Americans.  It is about 5pm on day one of a two day battle that started at 6am.  I lost the first roadblock, circled in yellow.  I am just learning this game, it is quite an experience, one of the best wargames I've ever played.

I was shocked to discover that Borderlands 2 was released back in September!  Where the heck was I?!?  I loved the original!  Even though I was sorely tempted to get B2, I just couldn't abandon the first without finishing the campaign - I found it that good.  Unfortunately, after reinstalling it, I realized I completely forget what I was doing, so I (gladly) began the campaign again.   ;D  Now I need to finish it before Borderlands 2 GOTY edition is released!   ::)

Anyway, screenie:

(http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd70/CrusaderScott/Borderlands/2012-12-16_00002_zpse3456406.jpg)

This is my char wielding a Dahl (or was it an Atlas?) six shooter with electroshock add-on.  You can't clearly see it because of the depth of field effects, but I just electrocuted a bandit in the distance when I returned fire from behind some cover.   8)  Even with the blur, the picture is still pretty with its detail and color (I am using a graphics mod that eliminates the heavy black "shaded cell" borders for a cleaner look).  You can also see a shot whizzing over my head from another bandit.

I forgot that SP shooters can be fun, too!   ;D

I think it's a little more polished than the first game was. Everything just seems to be a little...cleaner. The writing is fantastic, and they aren't afraid to drop the humor for some pretty serious stuff (and it works). It also seems longer. I've played it through once, and I've got 49 hours in to it. I played the first for about 65, but that included 2 play throughs and 2 of the DLC packs.

About B1's DLC.  Were there any that you would consider must-have's story wise?  I was thinking of finishing the main campaign and going on to B2, but Claptrap revolution and Armory sound interesting.

Zombie Island of Dr. Ned and Secret Armory of General Knoxx were the two that I played, and both were pretty good. Mad Moxxi is pretty much a PVP zone, which I had no interest in. Claptrap Revolution came out after I was pretty much done with the game, so I honestly have no idea how that one is.

HQ have ordered a squad to go down into the village and intercept an enemy patrol seen disembarking from a patrol boat on the beach. I order up a HMMV, its too far to walk!

I've been meaning to boot up A2 again since upgrading my video card.  I think you just gave me the impetus to do so, Undercover!  :)

...But then there is the continued call to complete Borderlands 1 so I can move onto 2.  :)

One of the things I love about this game is how the corporate propaganda pervades the entire game.  For example, I love the posters you find around the planet that advertise this or that weaponry manufacturer:

4th Scenario of German Campaign.  Here is my rag-tag group of POW's. Had a great time commanding them and scavenging for weapons. Nice mission but some triggers fail to activate and I had to cheat and type 'endmission' in the console to finish the scenario.

Some shots of my current game of Port Royal 3. Playing the open world campaign. Building up a nice little trading empire. I'm starting to make the transition from just trading to buy property in towns. So far its a good game to prop my feet up and drink some coffee or in my current case hot chocolate.

These shots are me taking out my first gang of pirates, got my 3 frigates shot up pretty bad in the first few fights I had to retreat to repair. I ended up beating all the pirate ships but don't have the arms or the crew size to go after the 600+ pirates that are garrisoning the base itself.

Really getting into Mechwarrior Online:

Hitting an enemy mech with my large laser.

...and then my medium laser.

Missiles for everyone!   ;D  The Cryengine really looks swell when it comes to lighting effects.

Targeting another mech on the same river.  I can dish out damage, but I don't think I've ever got a kill.   :(

A thermal scan of the terrain.  This is on a dark wintry map, so thermal vision comes in handy.  That hot spot is the cooling wreck of a mech taken out by my teammate.  I like how the spots that were hit by lasers glow realistically hotter than the rest of the wreck.  There are a lot of nice touches like that in MWO.

This was an interesting standoff.  Turns out both my mech and that of my enemy overheated and had to shut down at the same time!  This is a shot of our two war machines offline within feet of each other.

New Years Eve gaming so far.............

FM2010 (my favourite edition), 2009/10 i took Harrogate into the Blue Square Premiership as Champions of the Blue Square North League. This is 2010/2011 so far im holding my own in the new league - professional football and the actual league beckon!!!

(http://img13.imageshack.us/img13/6480/fm2012123113112120.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/13/fm2012123113112120.jpg/)

Testing out my Arma II pilot rescue mission - bit to go yet. Spec Ops Team Bravo (not yet complete) go in at dawn to rescue the captured pilot held in a village (this isnt the village!)

(http://img341.imageshack.us/img341/3061/arma2oa2012123113242133.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/341/arma2oa2012123113242133.jpg/)

After completely ballsing up the approach, Operative Dawson is killed by the Russian patrol and i'm shot in the leg - its time to call for the chopper and get the hell out of here. After what seems like an age the chopper turns up and we leave. So far all the extraction/insertion codes work, i would hope to key the chopper rescue channel when i have the pilot rescued, the only trigger left to check is getting seen by the pilot's guards - this will fire a 3 man Spetznaz team to leave the barracks and come to the aid of the guards

It can now be revealed that 4 days ago the Kerbal Space Agency lost contact with Republic I, the first mission to the Mun.  The command module for the mission malfunctioned and 2 souls were lost.  However, the Mun lander was able to achieve a stable orbit by use of much RCS fuel and some quick thinking.

A rescue mission was launched the today and the Kerbal Space Agency would like to announce that Republic II has docked with the lander from Republic I and has rescued Herman Kerbal.

I have to say though, launching and  the rendezvous maneuvers were some of the most complex things I've ever done in a game.  I actually let out a sign of relief when I finally docked.  :)

I really have to get back into KSP.  I love that game and am really excited by its long-term development plan.  I am surprised it doesn't get more coverage in the gaming press.  I find it at least as innovative as Minecraft.

Respectfully disagree with this.  Your goals are limited only by your imagination in KSP.  It is an outstanding game and a real achievement in my opinion.
Title: Re: Share your Screenshots!
Post by: republic on January 02, 2013, 06:30:06 AM
I'm used to playing games like Eve Online where the point of the game relies on what you want to do.  So KSP works well for that.  I wanted to put a Kerbal on the Mun, and so to make it fun I've been watching the old HBO series From the Earth to the Moon, and trying to replicate that while I play KSP.

When my lander got stranded I thought, "Cool, a rescue mission!"

I would like to see KSP offer a realtime multiplayer experience.  Imagine if they changed it up just a bit such that you could spawn your own procedural solar system for a server, and you and your friends build craft to explore and exploit that system.  :)

One minute I'm scanning for baddies, then I see SA6 on my RWR and a fraction of a second later the cockpit erupts.  A failed attempt at evading and...I'm hit but not dead.  One engine on fire, computer dead.  I spew chaff coax an engine from death try and egress the area when I see smoke from down below...  I flew from one site directly into another.  So I'm thinking I'll "Red October" it, fly (more falling than flying at this point) straight at it and hope to cause it to miss/not detonate.  Well...you see the results.

It is still very, very rough around the edges- airfields not leveled, planes blowing up on runways, getting stuck on taxiways, etc., but the potential is insane.

Finally finished all the codes for the Arma II Pilot Rescue Mission.

Spec Ops Bravo Team are tasked with rescuing a captured pilot - intel reports he is being held by Russian forces hiding out in the small, farming village of Hati Hati (i didnt choose the name!). Having just exited the helicopter the team spread out for a recon of the area:-

(http://img585.imageshack.us/img585/9499/arma2oa2013010922001148.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/585/arma2oa2013010922001148.jpg/)

Checking the ridge line, Operative Williams (4) is on the top of a hill to our left looking down the road seen a little to our front:-

(http://img831.imageshack.us/img831/6696/arma2oa2013010922051125.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/831/arma2oa2013010922051125.jpg/)

A small patrol is ambushed as they come down the road having reported the helo insertion:-

The village is split in half, the larger part is seen here, recon shows no signs of enemy activity but i post Sniper Williams here in case anyone comes out to see what were doing.........:-

.........whilst me, Handler (Medic) and Flynn (Operative 3) check the other side of the village.

At the back of the village I spot a Spetznatz guard - thats him in the middle of the aiming reticule. After running Williams round the back of his half of the village and finding no troops or pilot, I decide this is where our pilot is and we move in:-

(http://img5.imageshack.us/img5/2720/arma2oa2013010922130899.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/5/arma2oa2013010922130899.jpg/)

There's our pilot, I walked into a bush making noise and he popped up to see who it was - if he heard me so did his guards. I send Handler and Flynn on a wide end run round to the back of the scrapped car and hut seen here:-

(http://img201.imageshack.us/img201/6193/arma2oa2013010922152204.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/201/arma2oa2013010922152204.jpg/)

Whilst they approach from the rear I jump over the wall killing one guard and Flynn is lightly wounded killing the other guard. The pilot is liberated and sent to some cover behind the buildings, and i call in the chopper while Handler gets the bandages out:-

(http://img560.imageshack.us/img560/9206/arma2oa2013010922195855.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/560/arma2oa2013010922195855.jpg/)

Frantic radio calls from the local barracks go unanswered - an enemy patrol is sent to check on the situation. Flynn is KIA making sure the pilot is safe:-

I'd like to check out ARMA2 sometime, but don't know if it will give me motion sickness like certain fps-engined games do.  Judging by the screenshots, and it having a 3rd-person view, it doesn't look like one of those that gives me problems.

I have fond memories of Op:Flashpoint so have been considering it for a future purchase.

Post by: jomni on January 10, 2013, 12:21:07 AM
ARMA 2 is slow.  Some say clunky but it is way better than Operation Flashpoint and ARMA 1.  Playing 3rd person is the way to go if you want to avoid motion sickness. Though you still need to zoom into first person sights when you want to shoot accurately. 

First person view has puke inducing motion blur and head bob.

More BMS Falcon, this time in Israel Theater of Operations 2, version 0.96:

(http://i263.photobucket.com/albums/ii123/toonces3/2013-01-09_191819_zps73ea4388.jpg)

There's a reason why it takes years and years for a "real" fighter pilot to do this stuff, and why it takes months to become proficient even in the sim.  There's a LOT going on in this picture.  I'm flying an F-15C on an escort mission for 8 F-16s doing strike and SEAD.  We're approaching the target area.  I have SA-2 and SA-3 rings on my HSD, several bogies on my FCR that are potentially hostile (and within the SAM rings), I'm showing SA-3 and SA-6 on my EWR as well as a bunch of F-16s, some of which are hostile just to keep things interesting.

All of this is happening at almost 550kts true airspeed.  It's a lot to juggle.

This is actually a fairly light mission in Falcon.

Day 2.  Campaign not going well.  The North Koreans are still pushing south while the crazy ATO keeps giving us orders to sink patrol boats.
It's time to take full command of South Korea's war effort.  After reading some tips, it seems that I really need to go "hands-on" and control the missions being generated.  Should be interesting.

I recovered an old save from my backup drive. My initial goals for myself were to form the Kingdoms of Italy and Burgundy, then declare independence. After taking Lotharingia I changed my mind on declaring independence and am aiming to unite the whole HRE under my banner.

That is quite an impressive empire you've got there Kushan

i see christian spain is still holding on

Thats a bit of abn understatement. They've recobnqueered all of Spain and have formed the Spanish empire. Now along with both the HRE and the Byzantines are chipping away at the islamic holding in northern Africa. Combined they are almost to the borders of Egypt.

Nice job, Kushan!  Looks like Abelardo (or one of his sons) will be Holy Roman Emperor before too long. 


Also, it's interesting to see Aquitaine essentially becoming the new France.  Stuff like that is one of the reasons I'm so fascinated with this game.  :)

I'm just playing regular old SH5 no mods or anything.  I guess there are still some bugs but I wouldn't know it.  Maybe later after I really learn the game they will appear.  Anyway the one thing to note is that if you plan to mod go with a non-Steam verision.  According to subsim.com there are many issues modding the Steam game.  I'm not sure why because I've never had that problem in the past but it's something to consider if modding the game is your thing.

There are multiple Bishops. Its a robot! In the first mission, you actually do see the lower half of the Bishop from the movie laying on the floor of the Sulaco hangar deck.

Bear in mind those are only on medium settings, on a very underpowered rig.  Graphically it's sublime, especially when there's bad weather, and apart from intermittent mouse lag it runs smooth as poo.

Title: Re: Share your Screenshots!
Post by: jomni on February 23, 2013, 05:52:04 AM
I'm only one hour into the game.  It's fun...  if you liked Devil May Cry.  :)  Clearly the big open maps and stealth aspect is taken away.  This is a linear action-packed hack and slash game.  But some elements of stealth is kept as you can insta-kill enemies that are not on alert (similar to other Ninja games like Tenchu). It also has some interactive cut scenes where it prompts you to press certain buttons like God of War... especially during boss battle sequences.  You get a lot of cut-scenes like other Metal Gear games but a bit shorter.  Graphics quality is not really that great and is quite similar to the previous Metal Gear title for the PS3.  The new DmC is clearly better in the graphics of the cinematics (I just finished the game recently).

I'm a little confused, though:  Given that Star Control is an old game, it's hard to believe it looked that good back then.  Was there a remake (with improved graphics) done in the last couple years?

OOPS!

The thread on it has me confused, as it was referred to as Star Control in the title, etc.   It's actually Star Conflict, and it's on Steam free-to-play:

http://store.steampowered.com/app/212070/?snr=1_7_15__13

Seems to be pretty popular thus far.

It's done by the same group as War Thunder and you can use the same login, along with tying it to your Steam acct of course.

Here's the current state of my city.  BTW, I had huge sanitation problems because I have no money to upgrade my sewerage system.  And my water is dirty because I placed the plant near a coal mine (I think) or maybe because of my overflowing sewers.
(https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-8Sx4ATwU0Hc/UTfP6Tq0VcI/AAAAAAAAFMo/uNE_stxlFb0/s1916/SimCity+2013-03-06+23-34-15-87.jpg)

Here's my city's main avenue.  You can see there are people protesting outside city hall due to the sanitation issue.  A lot of them are getting sick and my hospitals are swamped.  Someone is also petitioning about education.
(https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-yHHcvmUtotg/UTfP6ViqkwI/AAAAAAAAFMs/0hQgdBy7gSI/s1502/SimCity+2013-03-06+23-35-59-98.jpg)

And the morning after a zombie attack.  44 buildings abandoned as the occupants were killed or moved out of town.  Now I have to bulldoze them so that new settlers can come.  I wonder if the zombies were brought about by my sanitation problem.

Greece.  These are some imaginary Greeks flying in what seems to be a Turkish-built Aegean where you quickly learn
there is nothing you have ever seen like Turkish flak.

Or maybe its just the flak you get if you have no jammers and the flak is radar-directed.

Cool pic.  I don't mean to turn this into a 'Caption This' thread but somewhere in that screenshot there is a story waiting to be told.  Something like, "He drank his Dr. Pepper during the assault on the fortified Log Line.  He was nearing his objective...only a few more meters to go if that when suddenly he felt a sharp pain in his chest.  He collapsed to the ground spilling his drink.  He look at his watch and realized this would be his last soda break for a long time.  A very long time."

Post by: LongBlade on March 13, 2013, 05:22:43 PM
Hmmm.

I'm not a hard core flight simmer. It isn't a hard core flight sim, but it does have some decent flight controls. I'm using a joystick and it is responding to every motion I'm applying to it. It's got stalls. I can extend flaps if I want to turn tightly or slow down on a bombing run. I find it challenging to play (well) but very fun and addictive. Think World of Tanks for airplanes and you've nailed it.

Keep in mind it's still in closed Beta. It plays great, but there will be some aspects that will change.

Actually, yes. It can work with a keyboard alone, a keyboard and mouse, and a controller.

I personally think the joystick is the best configuration, but all of them can work. I flew about twice with my kb and mouse and went out to buy a new joystick. It worked fine. The joystick worked better.

There's a big event going on now where the airspace across the Atlantic is fully controlled ("Cross the Pond").  Lots of long haul pilots flying around that area tonight.

Of course not, but I like it nonetheless.  I believe the developer said they did this so the dead bodies were easier to see on the background.  Who knows if this will stay in the final version.

^ This.

This is why no preview should ever discuss real or perceived flaws in a game. The code will change. It's a certainty. That's why it's Beta (or Alpha) code and not on a retail shelf.

This is definitely a game I am keeping my eye upon.  Question: right now it seems to have more of a SWAT / law enforcement aspect to it.  Have the devs mentioned any possibility of expanding it to military spec ops?


My screenie.  Meet the new boss of the Third Street Saints:

After I took that screenshot, I said to myself "Hmm, looks like a photo for a magazine".  So I whipped up a cover for one.   ; :D

Back to some old school SWAT 4....can't believe I never bought and played this game before this past week....having a blast with the tactics.....some screenshots from taking down terrorists in a hospital......not a good day for the bad guys!  Graphics might be a little dated (although acceptable to me), but gameplay is fun.

Too funny, didn't even notice the picture:)

As for squad movement, it really excels in this area in my opinion.  You click the right mouse button and then you scroll through a ton of options....you can make them breach, cover, move, restrain, etc.  real easy to use.  You can break your team up into multiple units whic is cool since you can actually see a remote camera that shows there movement even if in a different part of the building.  You can even bring up a sniper view to take out the baddies with your sniper....all very cool and well done.  I picked this up at amazon (gold version) for $9, well worth it!

Its a real-time first person shooter, but very tactical, not run and gun.  Haven't seen all the options yet, but I am sure there is the ability to pause, although I could be wrong.  I haven't had the need for a pause since you are given time usually to get everything tactically in place before executing your orders.

SWAT 3 / 4 are both excellent titles, IMHO.  Well worth the $9.  I particularly like the fact that these are perhaps the only shooters I know of where you get extra points for restraining bad guys instead of just killing them.

I just tried to pick up SWAT4, as well as Strike Commander, at GOG.com but the transition from cart to Paypal screen seems borked somehow. It never finishes loading. It's also very hard to log in at the main Paypal site. I wonder if it's related to the recent DDoS attacks. I ended up just wishlisting the games for later.

Do you have a link to SWAT 4 on GOG.com ?  To the best of my knowledge, you can't download SWAT 4 anymore from digital stores.  Any chance, you saw SWAT 3 instead?  I had to buy the physical copy from amazon, which was good since I got the gold version that included the expansion too.

You're right, it turned out to be SWAT3. I had saved it to my wishlist w/out looking closely because I also saw Strike Commander so that got first priority. I couldn't get that one either because the payment system was flaking out. :(
I'll try again tonight and look for SWAT4 elsewhere.

No problem, I may even pick up SWAT 3 since I like SWAT 4 so much.....amazon was really the cheapest place I could find (without looking on ebay and places like that).  Although it has slightly gone up to $11 now with only 2 copies currently left.

SWAT3 was very similar to 4, but it's pretty damn old these days.  I think you'll be fine sticking with 4 and passing on the old one.

Post by: Jack Nastyface on March 31, 2013, 11:18:07 PM
IMHO...both games have their good and bad points.  SWAT3 features interesting weapon ballistics (ie:  you can easily shoot through drywall but not cement), which is  good because it's nice to see "realistic" gun-play, but also bad, because you can accidently whack good guys if you shoot wild, and bad guys can blast you through walls.  SWAT 4 IMHO has a slightly better weapon / equipment selection, and a greater range of team tactics.   SWAT3 features one of the best FPS levels ever designed (the last one, in the sewers).

If you can, try playing multi-player coop with some like minded players.  It's really great to get a bunch of guys together who work as a team and try to arrest bad guys instead of just blasting them.

Obviously, SWAT 3 as the older game has dated graphics....but really, the gameplay is more important in this type of game.

Played a little swat 3 last night...sure, dated graphics but still good enough.  Probably the biggest issue for me is the command system seems to be largely keyboard driven where in swat 4 I can access via mouse controls.  Like mouse controls better, but I am sure I will get use to it....just might be tough to keep consistent when toggling between games.

REPOSTED FROM SALES THREAD

Got a flight in this weekend where I flew the CS 707 from Vienna to Düsseldorf departing early in the morning.  It was snowing in Vienna with limited visibility.  I took off and as I crossed into Germany I encountered broken clouds and fai weather, however once I started into Düsseldorf, the weather had deteriorated. 

As you can see below, I acquired the GS and began my approach into Düsseldorf @ 2500 visibility was nil.... however I was at 900 and then 800 ft above and still could not see the runway.... but I continued on. It was not until I was 700 above when I caught the runway lights.  A fun flight to say the least. sorry for the long trail of screenshots.....

Right topic this time....

Early morning flight with the KingAir flying past O'Hare (KORD) AP on my righthand side.  Light turbulence and nice sunrise.  This was a test flight and today I realize I did not have a new software package setup correctly to mimic aircraft turbulence for movement (at leas that is what I think).

Other flight was to Vienna and as I was fiddeling around in the cockpit I get a TCAS alert then finally the ATC warns me and I see a 737 at my 9 O'clock... then clear skies to my destination.  Think I am about finished with my setup, just purchased OpusFSX for weather and movement model, it is outstanding!

Captain Sim 727?  You know, I've never been able to bring that F version to cruise altitude because I stall.  Did you tweak the config in that one?

Yes, it is the CS 727.  There is a problem with the avionics which shortly after take-off you will lose power.  You will need to add this (electric_always_available=1) to your aircraft.cfg file.

[electrical]
max_battery_voltage = 24.0
generator_alternator_voltage = 30.0
max_generator_alternator_amps = 400.0
electric_always_available=1

If you do not, you will loose power to the a/p (avionics) and it will not allow you to hold altitude, vertical hold etc...  Also if you want to track the Flight Plan, you will need to map a shortcut key to (Nav/GPS)..... I mapped mine to Ctrl+G I believe or to a flight stick button.  Once you map it, you can turn the Auto-pilot to NAV/LOC and it will track your flightplan.

or if you want a GPS button to show on your Auto-Pilot you can add the following:

727-100
[Window03]
Background_color=0,0,0
size_mm=447,106
position=2
visible=0
ident=10005
gauge00=Captain_Sim.p721.P12!P12_001_ap, 20,0, 427,106
gauge01=Cessna!Nav_GPS_Annunciator, 0,0,20,20
gauge02=Cessna!Nav GPS Switch, 0,20,20,20

And for the 727-200, 727-100F and 727-200F:

[Window03]
Background_color=0,0,0
size_mm=447,106
position=2
visible=0
ident=10005
gauge00=..\..\CS_B727-100\panel\Captain_Sim.p721.P12!P12_001_ap, 20,0, 427,106
gauge01=Cessna!Nav_GPS_Annunciator, 0,0,20,20
gauge02=Cessna!Nav GPS Switch, 0,20,20,20


I generally climb at about 1800 ~ 2100 on the VSI in the 727 until I reach around FL20 and then you will need to adjust to keep it at least 250 kts, it is slow getting there and usually my speed is around 250 kts showing.  With the 727 you have to really watch the VSI and IAS because the Autopilot is not perfect and your VSI can drop so you have to adjust.  With no auto-throttle you have to continually watch the IAS, once at cruise you should be ok.

Here is a very lucky US half squad doing a total Saving Private Ryan move in a CMBN game I am playing versus Undercovergeek

Geek sent a panther around my flank to blast my infantry (you can see some casualties scattered behind).  I gave the do or die order for this half squad to assault the panther with nothing but a pair of steel balls the size of grapefruits and some grenades.  Well these guys pull the out the royal flush when it comes to luck and disable the panther with one grenade (looks like it hits the barrel).  The panther crew bails out and then its payback time for my boys.

Geek sent a panther around my flank to blast my infantry (you can see some casualties scattered behind).  I gave the do or die order for this half squad to assault the panther with nothing but a pair of steel balls the size of grapefruits and some grenades.  Well these guys pull the out the royal flush when it comes to luck and disable the panther with one grenade (looks like it hits the barrel).  The panther crew bails out and then its payback time for my boys.

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh!!!

ive seen these things shrug off repeated hits from tank destroyers, but hell no - 1 grenade from these guys was all it took, god knows what the crew thought happened, no injuries inside the tank, but it knocked the thing right out

Captain Sim 727?  You know, I've never been able to bring that F version to cruise altitude because I stall.  Did you tweak the config in that one?

Yes, it is the CS 727.  There is a problem with the avionics which shortly after take-off you will lose power.  You will need to add this (electric_always_available=1) to your aircraft.cfg file.

[electrical]
max_battery_voltage = 24.0
generator_alternator_voltage = 30.0
max_generator_alternator_amps = 400.0
electric_always_available=1

If you do not, you will loose power to the a/p (avionics) and it will not allow you to hold altitude, vertical hold etc...  Also if you want to track the Flight Plan, you will need to map a shortcut key to (Nav/GPS)..... I mapped mine to Ctrl+G I believe or to a flight stick button.  Once you map it, you can turn the Auto-pilot to NAV/LOC and it will track your flightplan.

or if you want a GPS button to show on your Auto-Pilot you can add the following:

727-100
[Window03]
Background_color=0,0,0
size_mm=447,106
position=2
visible=0
ident=10005
gauge00=Captain_Sim.p721.P12!P12_001_ap, 20,0, 427,106
gauge01=Cessna!Nav_GPS_Annunciator, 0,0,20,20
gauge02=Cessna!Nav GPS Switch, 0,20,20,20

And for the 727-200, 727-100F and 727-200F:

[Window03]
Background_color=0,0,0
size_mm=447,106
position=2
visible=0
ident=10005
gauge00=..\..\CS_B727-100\panel\Captain_Sim.p721.P12!P12_001_ap, 20,0, 427,106
gauge01=Cessna!Nav_GPS_Annunciator, 0,0,20,20
gauge02=Cessna!Nav GPS Switch, 0,20,20,20


I generally climb at about 1800 ~ 2100 on the VSI in the 727 until I reach around FL20 and then you will need to adjust to keep it at least 250 kts, it is slow getting there and usually my speed is around 250 kts showing.  With the 727 you have to really watch the VSI and IAS because the Autopilot is not perfect and your VSI can drop so you have to adjust.  With no auto-throttle you have to continually watch the IAS, once at cruise you should be ok.



PE

Thanks for the tips.  I really am having a hard time maintaining speed.  I actually installed an FMS to do LNAV like many 727's still flying these days.

What a travesty - the 150th Anniversary of the ACW is at its midpoint, and 99% of gaming has nothing new to show us.   >:(  At least Norbsoft is still hard at work. 

Speaking of which, I recently reinstalled SoW: Gettysburg and played a quick skirmish.  Brigade vs brigade, Day 1, and I took the part of Brig General John B Gordon.

I took my brigade towards Gettysburg proper...and soon spotted some Federal cavalry approaching from up the road:

(http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd70/CrusaderScott/Scourge%20of%20War/get1_zpscf21f64f.jpg) (http://s226.photobucket.com/user/CrusaderScott/media/Scourge%20of%20War/get1_zpscf21f64f.jpg.html)

Before long, we had a mess of Union troops descending on us (General Early decided to come watch  :)):

(http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd70/CrusaderScott/Scourge%20of%20War/get2_zps46b9ae08.jpg) (http://s226.photobucket.com/user/CrusaderScott/media/Scourge%20of%20War/get2_zps46b9ae08.jpg.html)

The Federals decided to try and rush us on the left flank with a cavalry charge:

(http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd70/CrusaderScott/Scourge%20of%20War/get3_zpsccab687c.jpg) (http://s226.photobucket.com/user/CrusaderScott/media/Scourge%20of%20War/get3_zpsccab687c.jpg.html) 

It worked.  They scattered the 13th Georgia, inflicting 192 casualties.  Then they did the same to another unit.  Ultimately, it was up to the 60th Georgia to save the flank:

(http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd70/CrusaderScott/Scourge%20of%20War/get4_zps3296a4a5.jpg) (http://s226.photobucket.com/user/CrusaderScott/media/Scourge%20of%20War/get4_zps3296a4a5.jpg.html)

The 60th held! 

The Federals than dismounted some infantry and a protracted fight for the control of the road took place.  It was quite a show.  In the following picture,you can see the clouds of smoke rising from the horizon (circled in red):

(http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd70/CrusaderScott/Scourge%20of%20War/get5a_zps0c7a3cc4.jpg) (http://s226.photobucket.com/user/CrusaderScott/media/Scourge%20of%20War/get5a_zps0c7a3cc4.jpg.html)

But we stopped them again. 

Stymied, they went back to their cavalry playbook and, this time, charged my right:

(http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd70/CrusaderScott/Scourge%20of%20War/get6_zps0c610789.jpg) (http://s226.photobucket.com/user/CrusaderScott/media/Scourge%20of%20War/get6_zps0c610789.jpg.html)

No dice.  The 26th Georgia held:

(http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd70/CrusaderScott/Scourge%20of%20War/get7_zps8ba5e443.jpg) (http://s226.photobucket.com/user/CrusaderScott/media/Scourge%20of%20War/get7_zps8ba5e443.jpg.html)

In desperation, they finally tried a charge right up the middle:

(http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd70/CrusaderScott/Scourge%20of%20War/get8_zps1e11868c.jpg) (http://s226.photobucket.com/user/CrusaderScott/media/Scourge%20of%20War/get8_zps1e11868c.jpg.html)

But the 61st Georgia, along with my single reserve unit the 38th Georgia, held them: 

(http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd70/CrusaderScott/Scourge%20of%20War/get9_zps70e7cc54.jpg) (http://s226.photobucket.com/user/CrusaderScott/media/Scourge%20of%20War/get9_zps70e7cc54.jpg.html)


The two units did get mauled - the 38th suffered 136 casualties alone.  Ouch!

Failing to break us, Billy Yank turned tail and ran.  We won the battle!

CSA casualties:  578 
US Casualties:  740


...Does this make me a grog now?  :P

It is a solid wargame.  And the sprite-based graphics probably works to its advantage seeing all the units on the field. 

I hope one day we get a grand campaign in an expansion, something like TW where you can plot strategy and resolve battles tactically.

After installing it, I was surprised to see the changes that had come Norbsoft's way since I purchased it from him back in 2011(?) - a Matrix/Slitherine publishing deal, two expansions and one standalone expansion!  Surprised the heck out of me.  I know it is only a matter of time until I get one of the expansions.   :)  Probably Chancellorsville once it goes on sale at Matrix.

Chancellorsville has a lot of wooded area so can get kinda confusing in the larger commands.  Still, it's nice having a change of scenery and positions.  I've still not even played Antietam in singleplayer much and my Chancellors expansion has only seen use in multiplayer although it was some very tough co-op fights against superior Union numbers.

It would be nice to have some kind of strategic layer to the game, but I don't ever expect to see that.  I'd also like to see someone do a Napoleonic port of the system.

The NGX is great for beginners as it's not as complicated as a 747. But detailed enough to feel real. After I bought this and the Aerosoft Airbus (A320) X Extended, I never craved to fly any other aircraft anymore.  :)
Only complaint I see regarding the NGX are framerates.  But if your PC is capable then it is a really great experience.

My search for armor for my noble/crusader Skyrim character continues. This one looks a little too much like parade ground armor for my usual taste, but since I am only a level or two away from getting the dragon smithing perk, I think I'm going to keep it. It's not to bad in these shots, but when right next to a light source its almost blindingly bright.

Well my time with "Orcs Must Die1" is over for now, it is finished[plus the dlc bonus levels]. I enjoyed the game and recommend it if you like a little tower defense action. enjoyed trying out the different trap combo's and the humor and variety of approaches to defense you could use. I'll be visiting it again and i still have #2 to play.

I've been playing the Battle of Sokolovo: 1943 DLC for Achtung Panzer: Operation Star.  It focuses on a joint Soviet/ Czechoslovakian defence of the village of Sokolovo in the Ukraine in March, 1943.

The Germans gave my Czechoslovakian forces a hell of a battering early on and succeeded in taking the village but I was able to bring in reinforcements, including 3 OT-34 flamethrower tanks.  I managed to push back the bulk of the German forces from Sokolovo and isolated the remnants of a Wehrmacht mechanized infantry company in the southeast corner of the town.  I counter-attacked with two platoons of Czechoslovakian infantry, one platoon of Czechoslovakian engineers, 4 Soviet Maxim machinegun teams, and 3 Soviet OT-34 flamethrower tanks.  The Germans had had a few days to dig in so I was expecting some stiff resistance.

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v320/bogaty/APOS1_zps1583c468.jpg:original) (http://smg.photobucket.com/user/bogaty/media/APOS1_zps1583c468.jpg.html)   


I assaulted from three points.  In the south, I put the 4 Maxims in line at the edge of an open field so they could hopefully supress the German defenders while the engineer platoon worked its way up a sunken road to the south of the MGs.

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v320/bogaty/APOS3_zpsd03daa66.jpg:original) (http://smg.photobucket.com/user/bogaty/media/APOS3_zpsd03daa66.jpg.html)


There was a lot of good terrain in the middle, so I sent in a platoon of infantry supported by all three flame tanks.  The frozen creek beds in the woods provided good cover for the rifle platoons to work up towards the objective.

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v320/bogaty/APOS2_zps0a6f4c69.jpg:original) (http://smg.photobucket.com/user/bogaty/media/APOS2_zps0a6f4c69.jpg.html)

In the north, I decided to move the remaining rifle platoon into the village so they could hopefully hook around the German's flank and hit them from the side while they were preoccupied with the tanks and MGs.

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v320/bogaty/APOS4_zpsecc80a5e.jpg:original) (http://smg.photobucket.com/user/bogaty/media/APOS4_zpsecc80a5e.jpg.html)

The frozen creek beds did indeed provide excellent cover and I was able to move my riflemen up unseen and they then took up position on the edge of the woods overlooking the village.  The Germans spotted them just moments before they were ready to open fire.  German signal flares went up and the Czechs in the woods started taking heavy mortar fire while those to the north in the village came under sustained but ineffective HMG fire.

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v320/bogaty/APOS5_zps470bd942.jpg:original) (http://smg.photobucket.com/user/bogaty/media/APOS5_zps470bd942.jpg.html)


The Germans were indeed well dug in with gun pits, interlocking trenches, and even some berms for their half-tracks.  My group in the middle started taking casualties from the mortars and MG-34 fire and went to ground.  In the north, the MG fire harassed and suppressed my riflemen and their progress began to slow as they went to ground despite taking only two casualties.  I thought I was going to get bogged down but then the tanks went in...

It turns out Germans are highly flammable...

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v320/bogaty/APOS6_zpsd679dbea.jpg:original) (http://smg.photobucket.com/user/bogaty/media/APOS6_zpsd679dbea.jpg.html)

The tanks just tore through the German defences.  It was amazing to watch.  The Germans had a few AT and Inf guns, but the shells just bounced off the OT-34s and then a quick squirt of flame would silence the gun. 

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v320/bogaty/APOS8_zps1ca1528f.jpg:original) (http://smg.photobucket.com/user/bogaty/media/APOS8_zps1ca1528f.jpg.html)


But not the gun crew. 

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v320/bogaty/APOS9_zps6e8e11fe.jpg:original) (http://smg.photobucket.com/user/bogaty/media/APOS9_zps6e8e11fe.jpg.html)


After watching 4 gun crews and 6 half-tracks get roasted, the remaining Germans just gave up en masse.  I've never seen that happen in an AP game before.   I've seen pockets of isolated groups give up but never entire companies at once.

Flamethrower tanks rule!

Thanks.  I'm still learning the nuances of the UI.  I still tend to lose units a lot when I shouldn't have because I'm not always clear how to get the units to do what I want.

For example, in the battle posted above, I had wanted my Czech riflemen to stay down in the lowest section of those creek beds but they spread out into line once they finished their move order.  Some climbed out of the creek bed and up onto the backs and were thus spotted and mortared by the Germans.

I now know what I did wrong in that instance but I still sometimes have trouble getting my guys to behave as I'd like.  Once I get a better handle on things, I'll write up an AAR.

My Dark Decent is over, just under 13 hours to completion. That seems about right for this kind of game, i must of liked it, i finished it :)
The next game will have to allow me to shoot something. Picked it up for $4.99 , not bad. The story is good and ties together , the puzzles all have reasonable solutions and some require some thought. The sound effects set the mood really well and I can't remember any unfair deaths. I recommend playing in low light with headphones and in decent chunks of time. If you like this type of game. it's worth the ride.

Here's some final shots

There's a thought: ARMAIII alpha reveals the origins of the DayZ infection.  There was an "infection" on the servers that caused players to fly up in the sky and die rather than respawning.

Now, maybe if you eat your lichens and gain immunity you can play ARMAIII without the DayZ mod.

The only problem with the Ancient Warfare series is that the terrain (trees, huts, etc) block the view of units behind them.  They have height.  In a 2D game, it's damn annoying. 

I wish there was some terrain mod where it was far shorter or even just flat graphics on the hexes.

I've become badly addicted to Scourge of War.  :o  Lord, it is good to be back in the American Civil War (I mean for gaming purposes  :D).  Here are two massaged screenshots I took:

First up:  The 2nd Massachusetts, with Phillip's Georgia Legion taken prisoner behind them, getting ready to receive some more confederates.

(http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd70/CrusaderScott/Scourge%20of%20War/chan1_zps996d010e.png) (http://s226.photobucket.com/user/CrusaderScott/media/Scourge%20of%20War/chan1_zps996d010e.png.html)

Second:  The 107th New York holds fast against the 18th Mississippi:

(http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd70/CrusaderScott/Scourge%20of%20War/chan2_zpsbbe3e7a3.png) (http://s226.photobucket.com/user/CrusaderScott/media/Scourge%20of%20War/chan2_zpsbbe3e7a3.png.html)

Third:  the 2nd Massachusetts runs to take cover behind a rough fence and return fire at advancing rebs.

(http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd70/CrusaderScott/Scourge%20of%20War/chan3_zps59367d27.png) (http://s226.photobucket.com/user/CrusaderScott/media/Scourge%20of%20War/chan3_zps59367d27.png.html)

Fourth: Profile in courage - the 2nd Massachusetts' CO stands bravely while his troops hit the dirt to avoid incoming artillery.  I used some zoom blurring here to try and emphasize the danger and his bravery:

(http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd70/CrusaderScott/Scourge%20of%20War/d593787b-b388-4eb4-936d-a5e7b79b95a6_zps66a66fac.jpg) (http://s226.photobucket.com/user/CrusaderScott/media/Scourge%20of%20War/d593787b-b388-4eb4-936d-a5e7b79b95a6_zps66a66fac.jpg.html)



Okay, I did take a break from SoW to dabble in some Wargame: ALB skirmishing.  ;D  Here's some East German tanks firing while on the move:

(http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd70/CrusaderScott/Wargame%20ALB/alb13enhanced_zpscbfb9a9b.jpg) (http://s226.photobucket.com/user/CrusaderScott/media/Wargame%20ALB/alb13enhanced_zpscbfb9a9b.jpg.html)

I am really looking forward to the replay feature as it should make taking good screenshots much easier.

^Outstanding! Love the effects!!!

Thank you, guys!  I appreciate all the nice comments.  I was literally just messing around in one of my freeware image programs when I created those.   :D  Amazing what you can do with image programs these days.  I was particularly amazed at how well the 2D sprites of Scourge of War responded so well to some tweaking in the lighting and color saturation.  They seemed to literally pop from 2D into 3D! 

Here's one more.  This is from Wargame ALB.  I originally was making this shot for a blog entry that was going to detail a Soviet invasion from the POV of someone caught behind enemy lines, but I canned that idea (might as well wait for the full game for that).  Be that as it may, this photo was going to be from the perspective of someone taking some quick photos at night with a handheld camera:

I not supposed to say anything, but those shots are actually from Scourge of Peace, the follow on title from NorbSoft.  He really changed the look of the game!  But its just a beta build, and I have the only copy.   ;)

Someday maybe.... ;D

But seriously, those were actually from Scourge of War: Chancellorsville, the stand-alone expansion that was released last year.   Well worth the money, IMO.

Nope, I'm the US commander actually. My boys in the 104th Infantry regiment, my advanced guard in the first allied counter attack towards Wiltz, have awoken to discover a company of Jagdtiger's in their midst.

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/b/b6/Jagdtiger-Aberdeen.00059se8.jpg/300px-Jagdtiger-Aberdeen.00059se8.jpg)

As is often the case with Command Ops intel from the front lines is best taken with a grain of salt. While the assault gun company was in fact real, dawn revealed that they were in fact JagdPanzer IV/70's. Still bad news for the AT company armed with 57mm M1 AT guns, but at least a target worth firing at.

Over the course of the next day half of said Jagdpanzers were destroyed. Things turned out much better than expected at first light.

since I finished Amnesia where you don't get any weapons or get to shoot anything I was looking for a little change of pace. This game seems to fit the bill, you know ..go from point A to point B  and shoot everything you encounter. Sometimes after work you just want to run and gun.

Nice vids!  That from Serious Sam 3?  How is it?  I remember it had some launch problems IIRC, but now it looks pretty good!

As for me....

I just blew my accumulated in-game Hawken credits to buy my first mech. It is a Type-C missile launching beast:

(http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd70/CrusaderScott/Hawken/HawkenGame-Win32-Shipping2013-05-1721-33-39-76_zps4813220a.png) (http://s226.photobucket.com/user/CrusaderScott/media/Hawken/HawkenGame-Win32-Shipping2013-05-1721-33-39-76_zps4813220a.png.html)

Hellfire missiles on the left arm, a grenade launcher on the right.  I used some of my real money credits to buy a custom paint job. 

I also spent some real money credits on a custom repair drone:

(http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd70/CrusaderScott/Hawken/HawkenGame-Win32-Shipping2013-05-1721-36-14-07_zps64d49d70.png) (http://s226.photobucket.com/user/CrusaderScott/media/Hawken/HawkenGame-Win32-Shipping2013-05-1721-36-14-07_zps64d49d70.png.html)

I thought lasers made more sense to repair heavy armor than the default torch drone.

Unfortunately, now I broke my in-game bank account...and this beast is going to need about 7500 credits to fill out its interior components. That's a lot of gaming I need to do to earn that (you average 75-125 credits per match)! It's okay, playing this game is a pleasure. Now I just have some new goals to work towards achieving!

Serious Sam 3 it is, I haven't had any issues playing it so far. It's what you'd expect for a linear shooter, stock up, move out and shoot everything ;D It seems to keep you moving with plenty to shoot and enough ammo usually, and so far a variety of enemies and no dead spots. You defiantly have to fight on the move, especially going backwards. Feels a little old school, uncomplicated blasting. I'm enjoying it.

They have made a number of nice improvements over the last five months.  The biggest are over 300 achievements that track your progress, as well as giving you a nice boost in credits to upgrade your mechs.  I would say Hawken is about 60% complete at this point - there is still a bunch of stuff that needs to be addressed, but the game is definitely coming together in an entertaining fashion.  I wouldn't be surprised to see it leave beta by late this year.

Despite what people say, nothing can be the simplistic fun of an unadulterated shooter.  That is why I always keep a CoD on my drive at all times.  :)

Finally decided to start my vanilla STW2 campaign:-

If memory serves, the elite troop choice for all the factions in STW1 was the Warrior Monks, it appears that the Uesugi specialise in them so im going with these guys. They're on the North coast of Japan with a decent choice of starting options. First off the bat is my older brother - shown here in the white, noone likes him and my first job is to depose him immediately and take the role of Daimyo of my clan. Like the turtle-er I am, i choose to stall a turn and instead order some more archers and spearmen

(http://img825.imageshack.us/img825/9232/shogun22013052214505539.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/825/shogun22013052214505539.jpg/)

Ooops, my brother seizes the initiative and marches round my army and attacks the castle. The undefended castle. With my Daimyo, undefended in it! Even the advisor lady thinks im going to lose, please, please, please let me be able to control the reinforcements (which will be the previously mentioned marched around army)

(http://img833.imageshack.us/img833/7701/shogun22013052311025276.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/833/shogun22013052311025276.jpg/)

Yes! I can control the reinforcements, thank God for that - IIRC you couldnt in earlier TW games. This should be fun, my reinforcements are coming on behind the attacking army (I'm the black banners behind the advancing white ones) - nice day for it too!!!

(http://img802.imageshack.us/img802/9117/shogun22013052311044747.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/802/shogun22013052311044747.jpg/)

So, there I am meticulously lining up my forces in beautiful straight OCD lines when the enemy General comes crashing through the forest, straight into the archers!

It's the one year anniversary of the release of Iron Front.  We had a great turnout for our Saturday Iron Front MP session today.  Some great missions.  If you've got the game, I encourage you to drop in on a Saturday and give it a whirl.  (Images taken by Saghen.)

Wow!  Those really are some great screenshots from Iron Front!  Have all the bugs and launch issues been resolved then?

Nope.  Multi-player is excellent and very stable.  Single player is still a train wreck as far as the official campaigns and missions are concerned.  However, there are a number of very good user made missions.  Also, the Planned Assault mission generator works with Iron Front, so you can easily whip up a variety of missions in moments and play those if you wish.

The publishers pulled the plug on the game a few months back.  There was some promising talk of the developers releasing the code thus allowing modding, but there appears to be a snag as one of the parties concerned is dragging their heels.

You can read about the possible mod project here.

I've found Iron Front to be an interesting sandbox to play with in conjunction with Planned Assault.  For the price point, it's not too bad at all provided all you want to do is goof around with all the neat stuff.  Without Planned Assault I don't think I'd buy it for single player.

STW II - lost 6-7 hours today playing - good gaming:-

Across the sea from my start location (which upon research i find is the hardest starting set up for a clan, so these pics may show my demise very soon) is an island called Sado, it has a gold mine - and i want it. At dawns early light we attack, the archers march in first:-

Through the heat haze of the rising sun our arrows fall on the defenders..........:-

..............whilst the Ashiguru spearmen approach the rear gate

With the gates smashed wide we storm in - its total carnage and i have no idea which way the battle is going to go. The guy in yellow here simply would not die, and my joy of seeing the spear go thru him, matched with the look of total surprise on his face made me cheer at the desktop - always a good sign. I couldnt capture in time a pic of the leader of this group, who, in one of his finishing moves did the full on 'Hollywood sword thrust under his arm whilst facing the other way' and killing the guy behind him.

With the enemy resolve weakening (just before mine), we send in the big guy to boost morale and run down the last defenders, they take a volley to the face and then attack. Shortly after the rest are mopped up and the castle falls - the gold is mine

My East German force spots a Danish Mechanized force, with a couple MBTs, and sends in some MiG-17PFs with cluster bombs.   They die to AAA fire from a Gepard after dropping their payload.

I also see some other user-created flyables I wanna pick up:  Tornado GR1/4 pack, Jaguar, some MiGs. 

It's amazing how many extra modded ones are available at the CombatACE forums.  The trick is having the right SF2 versions.  Luckily I have SF2 Europe & Israel so these relatively newer models are usually a go for me.

The game was to control 50% of the Holy Sites on the map.  So I made the biggest map available, on the hardest difficulty, put the most A.I. mages on it (eight I think) and six other planes.  It took me 191 Turns to eliminate five mages, completely control two of the six planes and have the requisite number of Holy Sites. Unless I get the itch, that's probably it for solo play.  New DLC or an expansion would certainly change my mind, but, I think this is going to be MP for me from now on.

I must say this is a very good single player FPS so far. The atmosphere is good, in fact the music sound effect stuff was starting to grate on nerves[in a good way- with headphones]]. The gun play is satisfying you hold down the trigger you wont hit shit with the auto's and the enemies aren't completely stupid, they flank, use cover fire and grenades and use cover[well mostly]. If you try to just run & gun you will die. Plenty of cover to use and they don't throw dozens of enemies at you. The limited slow motion time you can enable gets you out of tough spots if used right.
Well hope to get more F.E.A.R time later....Alma is still dogging me and now i've got some disappearing ninja types stalking me....Bastards....there gonna get the combat shotgun to the face cure.

Correct, F12 in STEAM games takes a screenshot and saves it to your STEAM screenshot folder.

Yes. It was quite a large battle and reminiscent of The Last Samurai.
Though a bit anti climactic as it ended pretty quickly when the two forces met for melee.

Though I may dominate the land battles... Things are't going well for my Emperor-loving crew.  The Shogun's side have more provinces and allies and I'm quickly running out of money as their navy is bombarding my industry every turn.  Already in the last year of the campaign.  Just want to see how this pans out.

^Nice screenies jomni and Undercover!!

Here is what happened to me this evening in my Civil War Campaign.  It is September of 1861 and during the Confederate turn my forces are presented with an opportunity to intercept an invading force in south eastern Kentucky.  It did not go well for me.  I should have declined the battle but in the interest of sharing some screenshots with you I decided to risk it.  Many Yankees died to bring you these images.

CS General Armstrong and his Kentucky invasion force vs. my pitiful attempt to defend Kentucky's right flank.

View of the battlefield from my side of the line.  Open territory.  I was hoping for heavily wooded area.  This does not look good.


(http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o648/W8taminute/2013-06-27_00003_zpsa4ad4996.jpg)
The view from the Confederate side.  They've got cavalry, and lots of it.  I'm doomed!


(http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o648/W8taminute/2013-06-27_00004_zpscdef9351.jpg)
The battle opens with 3 regiments of CS cavalry attempting to flank me on my right.


(http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o648/W8taminute/2013-06-27_00006_zps6c36fa16.jpg)
Moments later my militia guarding the right flank are terrorized by the first wave.


(http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o648/W8taminute/2013-06-27_00008_zps2564cb3d.jpg)
A few minutes later my right flank is rolled up and my extreme left comes under attack.  Here we see the 7th New York Volunteers going down.  What a bad day for the Union.


(http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o648/W8taminute/2013-06-27_00009_zpsaf3ed9fc.jpg)
I paid the price for my lack of vision.  I should have placed my militia in the center and had my good troops guarding the flanks.  Lesson learned.

Yeah after playing this mod for over 4 hours now I'm beginning to see that cavalry can just walk right in and smash it's way through without too much trouble. 

In the case of the battle I fought though I have to admit my right flank was manned by militia.  Can militia really stand up to a determined cavalry charge?  My other mistake was leaving the regiment that was to defend against the charge in a thin long line.  I should have dramatically decreased the rank and increased the file (i.e. shortened the width and increased the depth) of the unit and set them straight away to melee.  I'm going to have to experiment a bit more before judging further on cavalry being too overpowered.

I really wanted to play this mod....downloaded it and tried to install the other night.  But when I started the game I could get nothing to work.  I saw the new titled screen but everything else still seemed empire.  I followed the instructions from the mod page so not sure what I messed up.  In the end, I had to uninstall empire since it seemed corrupted.  Any chance you can post your install steps and maybe I will give it a go again since this looks great.

Post by: W8taminute on June 28, 2013, 08:19:42 AM
Hi Grim,

Did you remember to install the patch to 3.4?  I'm not using the 3.5 Beta as it is known to be buggy.  In any case here is the install procedure:

1. First download ACW 3.4, then the ACW Music files, then the 3.4 patch
2. Run the ACW 3.4 executable, it takes a while so let it finish
3. Run the ACW Music files executable and let it finish
4. Unzip the patch and dump the files into the appropriate game folder.  I can provide a screenshot when I get home if you are not sure where to place the patch files.  You have to install the patch manually and that might be a source of problems if not done right
5. You should now login into Steam with your account but do not run ETW.  Just log in.
6. Execute the ACW exe where you will see a window popup.
7. Select the Wilderness map from the top menu dropdown.  Sorry I can't remember which dropdown gives you the map options.  I can check when I get home.
8. Then double click on either the US or the CS icon in the main body of that ACW popup window.  The first time you do this you will notice some files being moved and copied around, let the script finish.  After about 3 or 4 minutes ETW will begin loading.
9. You can now select new campaign and select the same side you double clicked on in step 8.

This should work but if it doesn't you can try rebooting your computer.  I accidentally started the ACW exe first then logged into Steam and started the ETW game and that's where I crashed.  The forums recommended that if that happens reboot your computer.  Start Steam first, this is very important, but don't execute ETW.  Instead run the ACW exe then it will automatically start ETW for you.

EDIT:  Important!  ETW will not be corrupted by running ACW.  Upon exiting ACW after you have saved and exited ETW you will be asked if you want to restore ETW to vanilla status.  You can choose not to if you plan on playing the mod again or you can let ACW reload the vanilla files so you can play ETW vanilla.

^You're welcome.  It does sound like you installed everything correctly but tried to start up the mod incorrectly.  The mod installer is that ACW3.exe

Thank you so much....I got it working now.  I missed the step of starting the game using the icons on the screen, never knew those were icons to start the game:)

I did the same thing.. I didn't realize that dialog box, that the middle of it was actually the starter, I kept looking in all the menu options!...

I installed and played a lil last night.. really enjoyed it.. A lot different than 'vanilla' battle wise..

Ok here are some typical cavalry stats.  I know you were interested in seeing this undercovergeek.   ;)

I don't think these stats are bad or game breakers.  I like how battles shape up in this mod.

Tonights warmongering had 2 'moments' -

1: The realisation that i wasnt going to reach the required number of provinces in time - theres maybe 50 turns left but im not going to capture another 28 provinces in that time - why does it have a time limit?

2: the following battle was great, really enjoyed it - it was a make or break attack from the beleagured Hatakeyama clan. The AI really kicked its own ass, an ally of mine had reduced it to one province and then turned its attention elsewhere - only for the Hatakeyamas to sweep thru 3 provinces and take them right back - my AI ally fought back pushing this army into my territory - this was his last stand:

(http://img832.imageshack.us/img832/9950/vr8u.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/832/vr8u.jpg/)

I broke the siege and marched out from the castle, the enemy are forming up on that hill in the middle of the shot below - sexy cinematic shot of Uesugi:

(http://img834.imageshack.us/img834/9893/4ydm.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/834/4ydm.jpg/)

He has more archers than me, simply marching to the foot of the hill is going to get me killed, i opt for a bit of Nelson and decided to cross the T working across his flank from the left in the hope of facing his archers 1 by 1. We march:

..............and march...............

Our archers take up positions in the woods at the foot of the hills, and start picking off the flanking spearmen and archers:

(http://img853.imageshack.us/img853/7046/7wwv.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/853/7wwv.jpg/)

Faced with being peppered with arrows, the enemy breaks and comes charging down the hill en masse

(http://img46.imageshack.us/img46/7903/io65.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/46/io65.jpg/)

I cant help but have a wry smile to myself when i see the enemy has come round the base of the hill and charged into my archers - its a massacre.........

(http://img703.imageshack.us/img703/2323/b351.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/703/b351.jpg/)

Post by: Kushan on June 30, 2013, 11:23:59 PM
Did you remember to install the patch to 3.4?  I'm not using the 3.5 Beta as it is known to be buggy.  In any case here is the install procedure:

1. First download ACW 3.4, then the ACW Music files, then the 3.4 patch
2. Run the ACW 3.4 executable, it takes a while so let it finish
3. Run the ACW Music files executable and let it finish
4. Unzip the patch and dump the files into the appropriate game folder.  I can provide a screenshot when I get home if you are not sure where to place the patch files.  You have to install the patch manually and that might be a source of problems if not done right
5. You should now login into Steam with your account but do not run ETW.  Just log in.
6. Execute the ACW exe where you will see a window popup.
7. Select the Wilderness map from the top menu dropdown.  Sorry I can't remember which dropdown gives you the map options.  I can check when I get home.
8. Then double click on either the US or the CS icon in the main body of that ACW popup window.  The first time you do this you will notice some files being moved and copied around, let the script finish.  After about 3 or 4 minutes ETW will begin loading.
9. You can now select new campaign and select the same side you double clicked on in step 8.

Thanks for posting the W8. Didn't realize I had to have Steam closed the first time I installed it. Does on the short campaign work? I noticed when I tried to choose the long campaign option thye game sends me back to the main screen.

Post by: W8taminute on July 01, 2013, 04:30:37 AM
^It should work.  I selected the long campaign in my current game and have had no issues.  You are correct about Steam needing to be off during the install process.  To play the game however did you remember to log into Steam first and then execute the ACW exe?

UCG -

There is a mod that extends the Shogun 2TW time limits.  IIRC, there's even one or more in the Steam workshop for it so should be as easy as clicking on it in Steam and enabling it when you start a game. 

Time limits suck - they aren't fun in most games.  They're often used in strategy games to make up for poor AI not being able to build & plan well in the long run but I think S2TW can do fine for a bit longer than they give it.

There should be a link on the game's Library page for "Steam Workshop".  Then you can browse/search the various mods there.

The Steam Workshop is one of their better ideas, obviously adopted from Desura's earlier mod support in their own client (along with carrying more indie titles).

Definitely some great screen captures of Wargame: ALB.  Love the screens which show the release of ordnance and deflection shooting from the AAA.  Are those taken while in a cinematic mode?  I think I've seen an option for one.

Nef, I'm pretty bad at the game too, but the fabulous OOB keeps me coming back for more.

Yes took those shots while watching a replay, you have the ability to slow down the camera, pause, and hide the HUD.

For some odd reason, there's no pre-built US Army deck so you have to create your own (which is really half the fun in WALB!).

Actually, something just changed.  I loaded the skirmish game and instead of having a USMC option, I was presented with a US Battlegroup option, which includes mixed Army and Marine units.  I guess one of the latest patches answered my prayer?

There's a graphics mod available to raise the textures to 128x128 or 64x64 . i haven't been able to get it yet you have to join an  italian forum, i registered but your supposed to get an email from them to confirm your account, so far no luck. There's screenshots of the improvements on the website. here's the link   http://www.undyingitalia.it/public/index.php?ind=downloads&op=entry_view&iden=26
If you have an interest and manage to get the download maybe you can put it up somewhere for me to get. It doesn't look to bad considering it made with the first unreal engine i believe. For $2.99 you can't go wrong and i'm a sucker for the creepy games.

My first mission G4M Betty campaign in Singapore 42 leading a flight of 6 Bettys, Direct hits in Port Facility. For those of us who prefer Bombers, I was not aware but got happily surprised to find that a new order command was added in 4.11 so you can instruct your flight when to drop bombs on your command (When you drop yours), flight/groundtargets/dropbombsonmycommand. Japanese Val and Kate bombers have now Bombsights for level bombing (yes, the Kate is now playable except in campaigns).

Quick mission on the Normandy map, this B-25J of my flight got chewed up by that roaming ME-109 but made it to safety thanks to intervening P-51s.

Cool shots.

Anyone know if the GOG version of IL2 is patched to 4.12? Also, it's been so long since I played it but are there torp planes? Ever since Dynamix's AOtP I've wanted an updated sim with the TBD Devastator despite being the deathtrap that she was.

Just some random shots of flying this weekend.  I flew the CS 777 and also got down the checklist and procedures of the CS 767, 757 and QW 757.  Took the Airbus X Extended A320 for a short flight as well.  Destinations of Munich, LaGuardia, Zurich, and Phoenix Sky Harbor.

Are you still having problems with the CS 777.  Many people say it's buggy.  I have it but haven't flown it extensively yet.

It has bugs, but still flyable.  Version 1.2 was just released and includes the weather and terrain radar and other fixes.  The only real issue I hear that is lingering is the N2 red line issue while climbing and the sometimes 4000+ fpm climbs but not exceeding 5000.   It is hard to look through those who just bash CS and those who are actually trying to work with it.  I admit it is ridiculous to have to wait months on fixes, but even without 1.2 I was able to fly with some workarounds, mainly not using the VNAV and having to use the Flight change button.  The climb rate could get out of hand with using the VNAV.  I have seen one post stating that VNAV was still not fixed, but waiting to hear more feedback.

Great pics Panzer, Captain sims addons are just awesome.

Thanks! they are a lot of fun.  Currently the fast liners I enjoy flying CS 707, 727, 757, 767, 777, Airbus X Extended, CLS 747... among others
I plan at some point to pick up CS 737 and PMDG 737 ngx.  I have a lot of add-ons and the A2A Accusim B-17 is probably one of the best.  I also enjoy the Constellation professional.



I flew the CS 757 into Innsbruck.... a very tricky affair and one I would suggest trying.  The CDU gave me a little problems following my route, but it lined out.  Working weather radar on the HSI is a very cool feature.

I have those too except the 767 & 777 from Captain Sim.  I'm a Boeing man as well, I enjoy those too from CS, also the CLS DC-10 collection (my favorite) and 737 PIC. The Justflight Constellation pro and DC-6 are very good as well for those of us who like prop airliners :-). Haven't experienced any addons yet from PMDG, but will most definitely buy some of their addons in the future the MD-11, 747 and the 737 NGX, Meanwhile The L-1011 from Justflight is my next addon on my wishlist.

Since the CLS products are in the "intermediate" level of simulation complexity i tend to prefer those because of the excellent user friendly CDU and instant INS alignment button, but the Captain Sim addons are just great, specially the 727 and 707 where do you don't have to deal with the long CDU config crap  ;D.

I have the DC-10 and the SkySim MD-11, and I really enjoy the DC-10.  The L-1011 is on my list as well, but have to get the 737 from CS first.  I always take my flights from a cold and dark to startup, very fun.  I really enjoy the Aerosoft's Airbus X Extended, an very well done package.  On my wish list is:

CaptainSim 737
BlackBox A330
JustFlight L-1011
Flight1 King Air B200
PMDG 737 ngx

Yes, the Majestic Dash 8 is worth it. Great systems and great graphics with not much of a hit on frame rates.
My only problem is that it sends weird signals to most ACARS programs being used by Virtual Airlines.
If you're not flying it with Virtual Airlines, then it wouldn't be much of a problem.

While looking thru the steam sale [after picking up borderlands2 and left for dead 2 ] I found a little casual game i'm enjoying.
sometimes after a long week, when the house is quiet I like to crack a cold one and put the headphones on and run thru some MP3's . This is a little casual music game that you can use your own music for. so I put on some music and try to get some high scores.

Here's the steam page .... http://store.steampowered.com/app/12900/

It has a demo and on sale for $2.49. i have found mouse sensitivity is really imnportant.

Played a skirmish game of Wargame Airland Battle last night and throughly enjoyed it.  The AI is pretty tough as I played on easy and narrowly lost  W. Germany / Russia.  I was on the offensive to begin with but quickly changed to defensive then a free for all for a sector.

Nice shots JH.

LOL...WWIII is going to be a team effort. I was playing as the US Battlegroup with a mixed force of Army dogs and Marines.  I like using USMC infantry with LAV-25 support, but I prefer the heavy armor and support components of the army for large spearhead advances and for maintaining defensive lines.

The British Battle Group in this skirmish was fielded by a friendly AI.

Been awhile since I've played Kerbal Space Program so my first go was very fuel-inefficient and sloppy at achieving orbit.  I'll blame it on the keyboard controls feeling a bit touchier than I recall (or I'm getting old?).  My nose flopped around too much at about 35km and I had to let off the thrust until corrected.  :o   On a better note, my re-entry was smooth and I was happy with keeping it maxing out at 4.5G.  Fun stuff!  Now on to get more practice so I don't burn so much damn fuel.

Kerbal is amazing.  I was able to build a station in orbit with several launches.  I eventually made it to the Mun...but alas...there was not enough fuel to come back.

However, since then I've discovered the quick save/load feature lol  I did all that stuff before I knew that, so if something went wrong...I launched all over again.

For my second refresher flight, I decided to slingshot around the Mun.  Could've landed there but I didn't have lander legs installed on it.  I probably would've lacked a few seconds worth of fuel to make it back home, anyway.  :D

You don't fly with mechjeb?

I've been freeballin' it.

Attempted to drop it in but something messed up so I removed it.  Flying vanilla doesn't bother me if it's just flying by the seat of my pants in Kerbin's area of influence (and 2 moons).  I like the challenge.   

I'm sure that I'll have to load it up when I start doing more than nearby moon landings, though.  Even then, I prefer to use the informational/calculational stuff in MechJeb for the most part.

EDIT:  On that second flight, I had only planned to jack around in orbit around Kerbin for awhile, but I had a good amount of fuel left over after circularizing my orbit so I decided to fly out to the moon & back on a whim.  ;D  Was fun stuff, aside from having to make an extra correction on my outbound trip.

Post by: Silent Disapproval Robot on July 17, 2013, 03:24:47 PM
I picked up the full version of Kerbal when it was on sale a few days ago.  I had hoped they'd fixed the issue with multiple controllers that I'd found in the demo, but I still can't get mine to map properly.  I enter my joystick inputs in the axis mapper but it doesn't recognize them as being from the joystick.  Instead, it takes inputs from my HOTAS throttle and sees those as being from the joystick.

Other than unplugging each device and then mapping one, editing the .cfg, and then adding the next device, creating a new .cfg file and then merging the files when all is done, is there another fix?
Title: Re: Share your Screenshots!
Post by: Nefaro on July 17, 2013, 03:54:23 PM
I was afraid I'd run into issues attempting to use a joystick in KSP, so I've not bothered yet. 

The biggest need is for a proper throttle, I think.  I'd try using a 360 controller with KSP but it doesn't have a proper throttle so probably not worth trying IMO. 

Think I saw someone mention in a KSP Youtube tutorial that the game doesn't yet recognize their HOTAS joystick properly, although his plain 'ole MS Sidewinder works fine.
Title: Re: Share your Screenshots!
Post by: Silent Disapproval Robot on July 17, 2013, 03:59:11 PM
I've got a Sidewinder but I also use a HOTAS throttle with it.  That's the issue.  I tried flying with the keyboard but controlling seems very, very sensitive that way.  The slightest touch of a key sends the command module into a very coarse spin.

Yeah, I just had problems with fine control on the throttle (using keyboard) in my Mun Lander.   I was having problems setting my thruster to just the right spot when getting very close to landing, so it was either taking off or coming down too fast near the surface of the Mun.

While I touched down, I still hit fairly hard.    I also forgot to test my lander leg placement out before launching, so my exhaust nozzle blowed up on touching down (it stuck out a bit too far).   Looks like Jebediah Kerbil isn't going home anytime soon.  ;D 

Note to self:  Test Lander on Kerbin after adjusting lander legs!

If the MiG AI in SF2 is any good, it would push an energy fight against the bantam bomber.   Not sure if it has different approaches to dogfighting, however, as the role would be reversed against the F-4s that were prominent in the first of the series.  Random thought.  :o

I'll post a few more observations in the Shadowrun Returns thread after putting in some more time and checking out the first example of user-created content. 

I would've posted a couple more screenshots, but I don't think there's an in-game command for capturing screenies so I had to C&P one at a time, after I exit the game.  Since it's also iOS capable, the bastards have a checkpoint save system only.  That means that if the game happens to lock up or bug out when minimized, I'll have to start from the beginning of the level.  I just need to d/l and install Greenshot on this computer sometime.

Yes.  If the Ai is smart enough to take advantage of its speed....  Sometime it's just plain dumb.   Like the two migs I shot down.  I think in this case,  they were concentrating on returning to base and did not fight back. Maybe low on fuel.

I regularly see that in SF2, when enemy AI-controlled aircraft are en-route or RTB.  I try to chalk it up to them not seeing me, but I've also caught them with their pants down in a nearly head-on merge when they've done the same. 

They regularly snap out of it but not always before they're already disadvantaged.

Are you playing it on Steam? If so does the default f12 key not work? I always thought that Steam would take a screenshot even if a game didn't have it built in.

I'm really impressed with the shots of the ACW mod for TWE, and in fact, I did not actually know that there was such a mod.

However, I've now downloaded it but not yet installed it. I generally don't mod games so I need a bit of advice before I proceed. Can I mod directly from the download (which I've saved to a temporary directory) or is it best to use a mod manager, and if so, what is a good one to use?

Any advice appreciated.

The ACW Mod can be installed into your main ETW directory. When you start it, it opens up a launcher. When you close the launcher it will give you the option to revert your ETW install to the vanilla game or keep ACW installed so you don;t have to go through the process a second time.

Yes, but I've had to change that due to hotkey conflicts with some games, in the past.  I've never used it much, preferring a 3rd party utility.

I just need to go d/l Greenshot and have it running in the background at all times.  That way I can do any games and not just Steam. 

I've been wanting to do a King of Dragon Pass AAR but that would probably take quite a lot of time.  I also think that KoDP is one of those games where only specific few screenshot utilities can actually grab the screen instead of a black square.

Having watched many replays im going to try against the AI on medium again. The biggest thing ive learnt is to take notice of what im facing instead of just throwing units at opposing forces - if this truly is Rock Paper Scissors all ive been doing so far is throwing paper at scissors. Ive scaled down the skill of the airborne ATG troops so that i can have more - deck tweaking at its finest:-

Having checked the map we head off for strategic points with the ATG troops - not necessarily in the capture zones, but on approach roads to these zones to second guess the AI -

(http://img10.imageshack.us/img10/9077/nswb.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/10/nswb.jpg/)


My Milan ATG troops unload as quick as possible and secure hard cover close to the approach lanes for the Victory Locations -

(http://img832.imageshack.us/img832/1597/qwnq.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/832/qwnq.jpg/)


Whilst of no particular importance this strategically placed farm turns into a hotly contested piece of land -

(http://img546.imageshack.us/img546/5897/hck.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/546/hck.jpg/)


With most of the buildings secure, anti-jet and anti-helicopter forces are moved forward to defend against air to ground attacks -

(http://img96.imageshack.us/img96/3074/kthw.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/96/kthw.jpg/)


Happy i could fend off the first wave of any attacks, we call in the SAS to recon ahead and see what we're facing -

(http://img819.imageshack.us/img819/3010/s7j4.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/819/s7j4.jpg/)


They bound forward from cover to cover, the town on the hill, behind the trees looks to be the focus of the AI's forward attack -

(http://img24.imageshack.us/img24/9344/bk5t.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/24/bk5t.jpg/)


Enemy ATG troops are been shipped in, and the town already looks heavily fortified -

(http://img854.imageshack.us/img854/4546/2t8o.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/854/2t8o.jpg/)


SAS troops spot a mass of enemy APCs on the fringe of the forest on the outskirts of town, we call in Harrier support -

(http://img69.imageshack.us/img69/7233/4xco.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/69/4xco.jpg/)


Carnage, but in the background our hero pays the ultimate price -

Many of the FSX flyers may know that FTX Global has been released and I had set back funds to purchase it for over a year now.  I finally got it installed and did some test flights as you can see below.  Some maybe hard to make out, but the new textures and night lighting are incredible.  I did not notice any FPS lost at all (for night lighting that is remarkable), with the exception of payware Airports and I did turn down my AI traffic.  My Sliders are turned up (Scenery Complexity: Extremely Dense and Autogen Density: Very Dense).  I may need to adjust the light size, but other than that I am extremely pleased wit this product, however I have only flown in a few locations thus far.

 I had 1 - that's ONE - HP left! I got the SOB who did this to me, though. Albeit, I had to use one of those premium shells to finish him off before he got me.

As an aside, I wonder when we are finally going to get penetration decals in Combat Missionx2?  I would pay for a patch if it included those....

You have too many games I guess.

Anyway to answer your question.  I have never gone far with it.  This is probably my 3rd run as the US (haven't played Japan) and I felt hopeless and quit early in the first two games.
Japan is rampaging everywhere.  We are behind in tech and production capacity.  So how can I stop this Japanese onslaught?  I am fighting for my life (which is actually a good feeling if you want tension in your games).

The good thing about this game is that the AI is pretty capable, sneaky and ruthless.  It is because it is not constrained by the standard historical script like some grognard / historically-accurate Pacific War games.

Update:  The Japanese are at the outskirts of Honolulu but it seems to be a stalemate.   The Japanese have landed in India and Australia and the Nationalist and Communist Chinese are out of the game.  How much more can this situation get worse? 

At least I retook one puny pacific island. Lol!

Couple of shots from the Prince and the Thane mod for CK2.

I never would have guessed this would happen....Good to see some thing never change.

(http://i1076.photobucket.com/albums/w458/Kushan04/Crusader%20Kings%202/2013-08-11_00032.jpg)

Not much has changes here. But there is a lot more provinces on the map. Some provinces have also been shuffled around from where they are on the vanilla map. Not sure if it historically accurate or not, but I like the change overall. There is also quite a few more duchies at the start of the game.

(http://i1076.photobucket.com/albums/w458/Kushan04/Crusader%20Kings%202/2013-08-11_00034.jpg)

Nail their hats to their heads. One of the MANY new events.

(http://i1076.photobucket.com/albums/w458/Kushan04/Crusader%20Kings%202/2013-08-11_00040.jpg)

Checking up on the di Parma's for Geek. Rocking a really cool looking beard. I like the new layout for the character screen. Makes things more clear and easier to read over the vanilla layout. The new background for the family tree is nice as well.

(http://i1076.photobucket.com/albums/w458/Kushan04/Crusader%20Kings%202/2013-08-11_00043.jpg)

I really hope this mod gets updated for the latest patch and the Old Gods DLC soon. I don't want to get to far into a game with it, but so far I'm liking the subtle / flavor additions from The Prince and the Thane has over the CK2+ mods.

Yes the battle is over and an overwhelming defeat for my german divisions. My mistake early on had perhaps been the thinking that i would have received better reinforcements, but not alot came sadly, perhaps the late artillery assets were my best help.
By the end once defeat was clear i felt more for the tragedy of my german forces, men who had fought hard to hang on to merely hang on to the city and their sanity in this hellish theatre, swept up in this apocalyptic crusade of Hitler's making.

26 years in, as Denmark.  Ironman mode.

Diplo-annexed Schleswig-Holstein.  Norway should also be happening soon since I started in a Personal Union with them and just acquired 4 extra provinces to meet the requirement of being larger.  The two other provinces were just recently gained in a war against the Livonian Order, after making claims on some of their coastal bootay.

My neighbor, The Hansa, are being little bitches and forging claims on my territory and generally snearing across the border at me.  I'm not gonna concern myself with them much unless they declare war.  Don't wanna get into any "Imperial Entanglements" right now, despite the Holy Roman Emperor (Austria) not having a huge amount of clout in the HRE.  He can still make demands that I return any Hanse territory I may capture, so I don't think it's worth taking it right now.

It took the Aztecs about 15 years to conquer Zapotec and the Mayans in two decisive wars.
And after 50 years of peace and development, strange ships are seen around our coastal waters.

Just in time,  we are now able to build warships ourselves. And fortification projects are initiated on important cities.

Great game. Have you had a chance to check out the slew of scenarios over at...... uh I forget where. But there's alot!

No I haven't yet, this was in fact the first one I played. :) Are there more than the ones mentioned here http://www.ssg.com.au/?page=scenarios (http://www.ssg.com.au/?page=scenarios)?

If that's Battlefront, I don't believe anyone made any AI enabled scenarios for it.   The first couple of DB games had quite a few, but later games no so much....

Decided to boot up Wargame: ALB just to see what changes the first free DLC brought with it.  Set up a quick skirmish game.  I took the NATO/Brits and the AI took the Pac (I forget which nation).  Most of the battle revolved around a patch of woods that sat near some sort of warehouse where tractor trailers were parked.

This is a shot of the rude surprise some PAC mechanized infantry got when it first approached the warehouse (the roof is seen just over the treetops).  We lit them up with everything we had!

(http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd70/CrusaderScott/Wargame%20ALB/2013-08-17_00001_zps59621e8e.jpg) (http://s226.photobucket.com/user/CrusaderScott/media/Wargame%20ALB/2013-08-17_00001_zps59621e8e.jpg.html)

The AI was not going to be deterred, so it kept sending more into the fray.  I brought in a TOW-equipped chopper to give it pause:

(http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd70/CrusaderScott/Wargame%20ALB/2013-08-17_00007_zpsc8534165.jpg) (http://s226.photobucket.com/user/CrusaderScott/media/Wargame%20ALB/2013-08-17_00007_zpsc8534165.jpg.html)

The fight continued to rage.  Eventually the road that led to the warehouse started to look like a dumping ground for burning BTRs and BMPs:

(http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd70/CrusaderScott/Wargame%20ALB/2013-08-17_00005_zps42595469.jpg) (http://s226.photobucket.com/user/CrusaderScott/media/Wargame%20ALB/2013-08-17_00005_zps42595469.jpg.html)

Things quieted down some, so I sent in some dismounted infantry to try and take that patch of woods.  Here they pass some Soviet wreckage:

(http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd70/CrusaderScott/Wargame%20ALB/2013-08-17_00009_zpse31b591b.jpg) (http://s226.photobucket.com/user/CrusaderScott/media/Wargame%20ALB/2013-08-17_00009_zpse31b591b.jpg.html)

Unfortunately, the Sovs had a different idea and sent in a Frogfoot to blast my infantry  >:(:

(http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd70/CrusaderScott/Wargame%20ALB/2013-08-17_00015_zps4a49dcac.jpg) (http://s226.photobucket.com/user/CrusaderScott/media/Wargame%20ALB/2013-08-17_00015_zps4a49dcac.jpg.html)

Interestingly it turned out that the reason why things had gotten quiet was because the AI was trying to circle around my warehouse stronghold and hit us from the south(!).  Nice move, AI!  Just by dumb luck, I had some Chieftain reinforcements (btw: I might have these designations wrong; I was too tired to take detailed notes) coming on the battlefield which engaged the enemy and stopped them long enough for my other forces to mop them up.  You can see my tanks aiming south at the newly appeared enemy, while a Harrier drops two 500lbs bombs on a suspected PAC recee element.

(http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd70/CrusaderScott/Wargame%20ALB/2013-08-17_00013_zpsecb0cf65.jpg) (http://s226.photobucket.com/user/CrusaderScott/media/Wargame%20ALB/2013-08-17_00013_zpsecb0cf65.jpg.html)

Just a random shot of one of my AA units shooting down a Soviet fighter-bomber before it could drop its load:

(http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd70/CrusaderScott/Wargame%20ALB/2013-08-17_00017_zps67776ad6.jpg) (http://s226.photobucket.com/user/CrusaderScott/media/Wargame%20ALB/2013-08-17_00017_zps67776ad6.jpg.html)

When the southern attack failed, more mechanized infantry came down the road at us.  Tanks to the rescue:

(http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd70/CrusaderScott/Wargame%20ALB/2013-08-17_00016_zpsfb18281f.jpg) (http://s226.photobucket.com/user/CrusaderScott/media/Wargame%20ALB/2013-08-17_00016_zpsfb18281f.jpg.html)

And that was where I had to end the skirmish.   :)  With the exception of some minor dings from when one of my AA units got knocked out by an ATGM, the actual warehouse never got damaged during the battle.

Nice screens.  I gotta learn to watch the replays in order to marvel at the graphics not seen when I'm actually playing the game.  Replays are only for skirmish battles right?  Can't seem to be able to watch campaign battles.

----------------------------------
 
The world according to the Aztecs in 1600. 

Controlling two trade areas (Mexico, and Mississippi) led to interaction with north and south American Indian societies.  They are too far to pose as a risk so friendly relations were encouraged whenever the opportunity arises. 

The Aztec empire expanded by three provinces through colonization and subjugation of natives. 

As expected, the Portuguese waged war on the Aztecs.  In the first war, the Portuguese easily obliterated the Aztec army and captured several provinces.  But for some reason, when peace was brokered, Portugal only asked for all of Aztec's wealth (around 2,000 ducats).  The Aztec empire's territory was left intact.  During some sea battles, the Aztec navy was able to capture a Portuguese warship, the Espirito Santo.

There was also a 2nd (short) war with Portuguese.  This time, the Portuguese brought along Spain and Great Britain as allies.  Only the Spanish army (6,000 troops) set foot on Aztec territory.  The Aztec army, despite outnumbering the Spanish (20,000 troops), were easily out matched.  But in the sea, the Aztec navy performed well.  They defeated the Spanish / Portuguese naval forces in several engagements and captured another warship, the Nossa Senhora dos Ramos.  This led to the settlement of peace where the Aztecs only lost some prestige but kept their territory intact once more.  But for how long?

[Yes, the graphics are obviously very primitive by today's standards.  It's just that it was such a fun battle to fight, I wanted to share it anyway.  8) ]




Not surprisingly, the cowardly Romulans began their war with the Klingon Empire by launching a sneak attack on our colony in the Corinth system.  We quickly moved to break the siege... 




(http://i1108.photobucket.com/albums/h412/Rotarrin/BOTF%20screenies/KlingonCorinthbattle1_zps88f5f351.jpg) (http://s1108.photobucket.com/user/Rotarrin/media/BOTF%20screenies/KlingonCorinthbattle1_zps88f5f351.jpg.html)
My fleet:  To the viewer's right (and a little in front), a squadron of small but swift B'rel-class Birds-of-Prey.  The heavy lifting, though, will be born by my K'tinga-class War Cruisers. 


(http://i1108.photobucket.com/albums/h412/Rotarrin/BOTF%20screenies/KlingonCorinthbattle2_zps2cf755be.jpg) (http://s1108.photobucket.com/user/Rotarrin/media/BOTF%20screenies/KlingonCorinthbattle2_zps2cf755be.jpg.html)
The opposition.  Like me, the Romulans' fast-attack vessels (an understrength squadron of D'ridren-class Destroyers and a couple D'Korask-class Light Cruisers) form their vanguard.  Of greater concern, however, are the four R'derex-class Strike Cruisers (off to the viewer's left), and -- especially -- the D'deridex-class Warbird on the right.  (A single one of those bad boys is equal to 2-3 K'tingas, and in general can really ruin someone's day.) 


(http://i1108.photobucket.com/albums/h412/Rotarrin/BOTF%20screenies/KlingonCorinthbattle3_zpsac941d4c.jpg) (http://s1108.photobucket.com/user/Rotarrin/media/BOTF%20screenies/KlingonCorinthbattle3_zpsac941d4c.jpg.html)
The battle's opening stages.  I direct my War Cruisers to take out the D'deridex, while my B-o-P's go after the Strike Cruisers.  The latter pack a mean punch at a distance -- boasting a large number of torpedo launchers, they're essentially mobile artillery platforms.  However, they possess only a single disruptor cannon, the result of which they're vulnerable in close-quarters combat...something at which fast-attack craft (especially the Klingons'!) typically excel. 


(http://i1108.photobucket.com/albums/h412/Rotarrin/BOTF%20screenies/KlingonCorinthbattle4_zpscce68527.jpg) (http://s1108.photobucket.com/user/Rotarrin/media/BOTF%20screenies/KlingonCorinthbattle4_zpscce68527.jpg.html)
Three B'rels are destroyed...but so is the Warbird.  That's an exchange I'll take any of the day of the week!  Now that their heaviest firepower is gone, I can breathe a little easier. 

Not pictured:  Most of the Romulan fast-attack group has circled around to behind my main formation.  Credit the enemy with knowing (and taking advantage of) the fact that Klingon ships don't have rear-firing weapons. 


(http://i1108.photobucket.com/albums/h412/Rotarrin/BOTF%20screenies/KlingonCorinthbattle5_zps0cb4878d.jpg) (http://s1108.photobucket.com/user/Rotarrin/media/BOTF%20screenies/KlingonCorinthbattle5_zps0cb4878d.jpg.html)
Ouch.  The fading explosion on the right is all that remains of one of my War Cruisers.  Galling though it is, I can't fault the Romulans for courage:  Their Strike Cruisers, already knowing they're outclassed (and likely doomed) by my Birds-of-Prey, don't even try to fight them.  Instead, they focus their attention on my K'tingas, with devastating results.  Unfortunately for the R'derex squadron in question, they now come under fire from my WC's in addition to my B-o-P's. 


(http://i1108.photobucket.com/albums/h412/Rotarrin/BOTF%20screenies/KlingonCorinthbattle6_zps0cf1cebc.jpg) (http://s1108.photobucket.com/user/Rotarrin/media/BOTF%20screenies/KlingonCorinthbattle6_zps0cf1cebc.jpg.html)
Another B'rel and a second K'tinga bite the dust.  Can we *please* finish off those damn Strike Cruisers??!  (I sometimes forget how much more punishment ships in this mod can take compared to the vanilla game...) 


(http://i1108.photobucket.com/albums/h412/Rotarrin/BOTF%20screenies/KlingonCorinthbattle7_zps3bd279ee.jpg) (http://s1108.photobucket.com/user/Rotarrin/media/BOTF%20screenies/KlingonCorinthbattle7_zps3bd279ee.jpg.html)
That's more like it!  With the Romulans' last 2 R'derex-class vessels (and 1 of their D'ridrens) converted into various disassociated atoms, the battle has finally reached the tipping point.  Our forces are now free to go after the enemy fast-attack group. 


(http://i1108.photobucket.com/albums/h412/Rotarrin/BOTF%20screenies/KlingonCorinthbattle8_zps03ea0ed0.jpg) (http://s1108.photobucket.com/user/Rotarrin/media/BOTF%20screenies/KlingonCorinthbattle8_zps03ea0ed0.jpg.html)
The Romulans go down hard, though.  The crews of a third War Cruiser and yet another Bird-of-Prey are sent to Sto-vo-Kor... 


(http://i1108.photobucket.com/albums/h412/Rotarrin/BOTF%20screenies/KlingonCorinthbattle9_zpsaf846254.jpg) (http://s1108.photobucket.com/user/Rotarrin/media/BOTF%20screenies/KlingonCorinthbattle9_zpsaf846254.jpg.html)
Finally!  With the destruction of the last 2 Romulan Destroyers and 1 of their Light Cruisers, the remaining D'Korask (upper-right part of the screen) pulls out.  I do not envy their commander the report s/he will have to make to their superiors... 


(http://i1108.photobucket.com/albums/h412/Rotarrin/BOTF%20screenies/KlingonCorinthbattle10_zps19b163b8.jpg) (http://s1108.photobucket.com/user/Rotarrin/media/BOTF%20screenies/KlingonCorinthbattle10_zps19b163b8.jpg.html)
We stand victorious!  While the price was heavy -- half my fleet was destroyed -- we gave better than we got.  The Corinth system is safe...for now.

I wish BOTF worked on my laptop.  :(  One of my all-time favorite 4X games turn-based games.

I recall the Romulans being the 800lb gorilla when it came to such battles.  Been awhile since I played but didn't their cloaking ability give them a free first fire if they had their cloaks active on the strategy map?  That always seemed to give them a big advantage in fleet battles, despite their ships not being as resilient overall.

Yeah, that sucks you couldn't get the game to run.  :( 

I know you've got plenty of other stuff to play in the meantime, but I still urge you -- at some point -- to PM Flocke or thunderchero about trying MPR++.  (Hey, it couldn't hurt...)

This was very true in the vanilla game, yes.  Their cloaking advantage was a bit overpowered. 


Fortunately, the BOP mod rectifies this in a couple different ways: 

1.)  The main difference is that firepower for virtually everyone's ships has been drastically reduced, thus limiting the power of a cloaked vessel's "free turn" at the beginning of combat (although it's definitely still worthwhile).  Not-so-incidentally, this also had the happy effect of making battles last longer and allowing different commands/tactics to actually matter somewhat -- as opposed to in the original game, where battles were usually orgies of mutual annihilation that disappointingly ended after just a few turns (and where one generally only bothered using the "charge/assault" command). 

2.)  Also, as the Klingons, all their warships can now cloak as well.  ;D  So in the Balance of Power mod, Klingon-vs.-Romulan battles usually start out with both sides decloaked (such as in my previous post), as otherwise they couldn't even engage each other. 




Boo Klingons! (http://i1081.photobucket.com/albums/j349/longblade/Smilies/RomulanScout.gif)

I'll have you know, the Romulans are actually my favorite faction to play as in BOTF.  (It's partly because they're the most "balanced" of the game's five playable races, but also because they have the coolest-looking ships!)  I just felt like a change of pace -- that, and of course the Klingons are just damn cool.  8) 



Actually, that was a fun little report, Martok ;)

Yeah, replays are only for skirmish/MP battles, which is a darn shame.  Truth is, I play this game mostly so I can go back and watch the battles unfold in slow motion later.   ;D  I never understood why these game devs load up their RTS games with great graphics.  What is the point?  Most RTS games move so fast that everything is a blur.  It doesn't make sense to me, especially without a replay viewer.  WEGO should be the preferred method for games like WAB.

And this is the end of my Aztec campaign.

----------------------------------

The pattern keeps repeating itself.  Each time Portugal wages war on the Aztecs, the Aztec army is easily obliterated and provinces are given to the Portuguese.  The Aztecs had no choice but to migrate and expand northwards. 

Encroachment of Western powers reduced the takings of the Aztecs in the trade areas that they used to dominate.

By 1695, the Aztecs have been isolated into three areas, Mexico (the capital and their original homeland), Mobile (a thriving province in North American Coast) and Mescalero (a desert outpost).

Some random screenshots from my Castile campaign. Also testing out Flikr over photobucket.

England has (finally) finished taking Scotland and Ireland. I'm a bit surprised Brittany hasn't been consumed by the ever growing France.

(http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7433/9540227044_c9a789f0d9_o.jpg) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/100435917@N07/9540227044/)

Along with converting to Protestantism, England also got converted to a noble republic. I think it might have been rebels. In any case they lost all of Scotland and Ireland along with 2 of the Wales provinces.

Saving Portugal (again), from Morocco (again), in a war they started (yet again).

I'm a bit surprised by this one. England protestant and Austria is still Catholic and the emperor of the HRE. If I was planning on being more involved in European politics instead of colonizing this might scare me a little. Maybe this will cause the Savoy (yet another of my war hawk allies) to think twice next time it wants to go to war with Austria.

If it wasn't for the Prestige hit, I'd really consider declining all of my allies wars. Seems like the AI is going to war against larger opponents, and using me to save them.

Everything is running great for me. It looks good (love the map changing seasons) and the AI seems to know how to play the game. I've experienced a few minor stuttering / game freezing. No CTD's, the game just stutters / locks up for a few seconds. Seems to happen when I'm playing on higher speed settings and autosave kicks in. Other then that, performance has been great. No game breaking issues from what I can tell.

Spanish Caribbean holdings at the end of the second Spanish conquest of the Aztecs.

This is what happens when you get greedy in EU IV. I didn't want to risk the French further moving in on what I consider mine (all of Mexico and the Carribean). Was also hoping if I took out the Aztecs I could redeploy the majority of my army back to Europe. Unfortunately, as soon as my victorious troops arrived back in Spain, they were immediately loaded back onto their transports and sent back to Mexico to quell uprisings.....

As soon as I sent them back more rebellions broke out in north Africa....

I see that your Overextension warning is up, Kushan.  If it gets too high, by your forceful taking of foreign territory, it'll push your rebel problem to new heights.  :D

The downside to hostile expansion is higher in EU4, methinks.  That's probably a good thing otherwise you get hit with the fast & massive blobbing of EU3, and you don't see subject nations permanently regaining their independence due to rebel uprisings.  I like that both the penalty for quick expansion and rebellions have more teeth now.  Fortunately the AI has also been wary enough of it that it's nations don't blob out as quickly either. 

I've not been taking more than two provinces in a peace deal, at any one time.  Until those are Cored I haven't taken anything else so that my Overextension, and therefore my rebel problem, doesn't get out of hand.  Fortunately I have been expanding more in the colonies so I don't need to war in Europe much.  If I were a landlocked nation, however, it would be trickier.  I may push my self-imposed Overextension limits out a bit further when it comes to warring the Huron in america, as their provinces aren't worth as much Tax income, which is what Overextension is caclulated from.  :)  I've been dominating the Fur trade by having ~25% of the market and that extra +1 Prestige per year, along with the Great Monument building that gives another +1, has been keeping my Prestige up pretty high without needing to war & win much.  8)

While I could only play EU3 for a couple hours at a time, and would regularly drop it for something else, EU4 has really put the hooks in me.  I've already played the damn thing for 73 hours!  :o  Sleep is for the weak!  :P   They did a superb job in making it fun & interesting.

1649 -  AI Portugal's leadership of a Personal Union with Castile pays off big in terms of colonies.  :o  My long-held alliance with France is probably what keeps Portugal from DOW'ing me and taking some of mine.  Holland, Persia, Russia have all been formed and survived their initial chaos.   :)

Its at 188% to be exact. I've got rebellions breaking out all over the place right now. Most of my army has been sent back to Mexico. I've only got 10 regiments covering Spain.....

Man power is going to be a real problem if things get worse. I went from 30k down to 20k in the last few years alone. A lot of that was from raising new regiments to cover Spain, but takign on 15+ stacks of rebels is beginning to takes it toll. Thankfully my 30+ regiment army in Mexico seems to be taking less losses now that its been reinforced from the 10-14 regiments I had left there initially for security.

If France or one of the other great powers comes after me, I'm really going to be screwed. Last I checked France has 50+k troops active and another 75+k in reserve.....

Good news is that I should have between 1-3+ provinces finish coring over the next 1-4 game years. After that my trade income should shoot through the roof since I will control the Mexico trade node completely and have the majority of the trade in the Caribbean and Seville nodes.

Canadian forces assaulting a town under cover of smoke.   
The mission ended as a minor defeat for my side.

Whenever I finish a Combat Mission Shock Force campaign mission, I feel quite drained.  Individually baby-sitting all those squads and vehicles in house to house combat and trying not to get them killed is very taxing.  It's a slow process and I usually run out of time.  Casualties then get carried over the next mission so losses are very depressing and I lose all the motivation to continue or finish the campaign.

Does anyone feel the same way?

Yes, absolutely.

I never played more than a handful of missions in CMSF (and the random battle generator was crap) because it felt like such a huge chore to micro-manage all the units only to have them die very quickly the first time they were spotted.  It drained my will to play, even though I kept coming back to it for awhile. 

Something else that would drive me away was that playing as the Syrians just wasn't that interesting unless you came up with a red-on-red scenario.  I suppose that was part of the reason they later released CM Afghanistan, so you could use Soviet equipment without being overmatched in equipment quality.  I would think in that case it wouldn't be fun at all to play the other side, either.  Even worse actually. 

So feeling compelled to only play one side kinda hurt it too.  There may be a few fanboy types who generally only play one side in certain periods **cough* WW2 *cough** but I'm not one of those.

I find all the CMx2 games take a lot of mental effort.  There's a lot of micro-management and you're right, one mistake can really rack up the casualties.  In CMSF this is particularly difficult since tolerance for casualties in modern combat is much lower than WW2. I tend to play a scenario and then go do something else for awhile; trying to string scenarios together is too exhausting! 

Having said that, the games do reward using good tactics.  This is a great tutorial on MOUT operations and clearing buildings: http://www.battlefront.com/community/showthread.php?t=82927 (http://www.battlefront.com/community/showthread.php?t=82927).  Following that approach significantly reduced my losses. These days I tend to take more losses from friendly fire than anything else, due to mistimed air and artillery strikes.

I'm playing a lot of CMBN and CMFI now and I struggle to get my head out of the CMSF space where victory = no or few casualties.  That's just not possible in the WW2 era, particularly now that machine guns have been made so much more lethal.

Well after not being able to get the new CM games to run on my computer it inspired me to load up the first 3 games. I've spent all week modding them. There are alot of nice mods, not to mention scenarios and campaigns. I went kind of mod crazy i have 3 installs of CMAK, added around a 1000 scenarios and campaigns to CMBO & CMBB not to mention replacing most of the BMP's. It was nice to find packages of scenario's and BMP"S made things go easier. A big thank you to all who took the time to do these mods.

So i'm up and ready for my CM orgy of destruction :)

Up first........defending the Villers-Bocage......here come the tiger's

(http://imageshack.us/a/img547/4180/ml08.jpg)

One of the mortar crew was killed/wounded from debris from that building, never got a round off. Here the Platoon HQ was forced to leave the building....didn't make it to the next building.
(http://imageshack.us/a/img571/2278/413z.jpg)

waited for the one shot....no joy..this was my fault, i should of set the start of the armor arc for the side shot. Wonder if he'll get another shot.
(http://imageshack.us/a/img197/2835/y9l2.jpg)

it's not looking good.

nope.. no second chances here.

Tiger rolls down the road.... we get a nice close shot at the side.....knocked out...1 down.
(http://imageshack.us/a/img194/2116/44yi.jpg)

A second tiger rolls down the same road, we get the first shot off...no damage..he tries to reverse out of there...didn't make it. Was hoping for a 2'fer.
(http://imageshack.us/a/img42/1042/25ik.jpg)

same tiger who knocked out my tank keeps rolling down the road. Comes under fire from a different tank, we get three hits and knock the tank out. I reversed the tank behind the building after the kill.
(http://imageshack.us/a/img692/233/hwlh.jpg)


I roll the tank out from behind the building and another tank rolls down the road...we get a hit...no damage...the tiger reverses before we get off a second shot.
(http://imageshack.us/a/img27/3370/7psw.jpg)

I'm 20 turns in out of 30+ ...... 4 tigers down , plus a platoon for sure.....my left flank AT gun got a kill also when they tried to roll on my left flank. I'm 1 tank, 1 mortar crew, 1 piat, 1 platoon HQ down and a few wounded.

I didn't buy Rome II, but all the talk about it got me to go back to Shogun II and finally finish my Rise of the Samurai campaign.  I found ROTS to be the toughest campaign to win by a large margin.  I think it's mainly due to the fact that the roads are almost non-existent so it takes forever to get anywhere.  This campaign was a real grind.  I pretty much had to take the entire map to win as I had to capture the home provinces of the major clans as part of my victory conditions.  The ones the far north (Iwate and Ugo) were a real headache as I had to take them by land due to the fact that I couldn't get a good navy going.  The green guys had more ships with more experience than me and would just slap my ships down the moment they left port so I had to slog all the way across the map.

I did it with five turns left before the campaign would have timed out.

Realm Divide occurs in ROTS but because of the family alliance system, it's not as severe as the Divide in the main game.  (Although my brother's clan did eventually turn on me near the end.)

Heh! 

Hey, Jomni.  I think you forgot to turn off your nav lights before entering the combat area.  :D

I've found the nav light switches in A-10C difficult to tell just which position their multi-position switch is in.  Thank god for external view, for double checking!  The Black Shark is similarly difficult to discern if you have them off or not.

You really make me want to fly ROF again. :)

It's been quite easy to get into, for me.  Relatively little controls tweaking and pretty much no heads-down busy work to learn & re-learn every time I fire it up. 

Quite refreshing after playing all the other flight sims that have some sort of learning curve and hotkeys out the ass. 

I'm also quite surprised at how well the graphics run compared to how they look.  8)  I actually lowered a couple settings a bit (grass, shadows) and raised anti-aliasing to 4x (which I almost never do for games running at this resolution) and it's still smooth as butter.. no stutters.  Can't say the same for DCS sims or numerous other 3D games in general.  Poor gfx optimization seems to be the norm, anymore, when your 60+ fps dead drops to zero and goes right back up on occasion.  That just hasn't happened in this one.  Immmm-pressive!

Also.. a lot of other games have way too much Reflective surfaces effect.  They make everything look like polished metal or high-gloss car paint glinting in the sunlight.  While this one still has a tad too much at certain angles (like the first screenshot, on the DVII), it also has some angles where it's perfect. Such as the second close-up shot.  Check out the side of the DVII fuselage in the sun!  It actually looks like painted canvas, not metal.  ;D

More Rise Of Flight.

This time I'm flying an Albatross D III. 

My first comer was a SPAD VII and as I was finishing him off a SPAD XIII bounced me from behind and wounded me, along with part of my upper wing & the fuselage near the cockpit.  Still, I managed to pull up and place a few bullets into his engine on the pass and that kept him low enough for me too keep up and finish him off despite my blurry vision.   :D  Limped back home with another SPAD XIII in chase.  That third one managed to hit me with another short burst right before I touched down.  Was hoping my airfield had some machineguns to light him up, being so low, but I don't think they did much to him.

I've flown RoF on and off for about 18 months now.  I still struggle with shooting and combat in general, but I like to hop in the Syndicate server and just fly around, because it does feel like I'm flying over the Western Front.  Often I'll have a "blank patrol" and land without seeing any action, yet I've still enjoyed the experience, which I think is a testament to the game's "simness"

It definitely has a great atmosphere about it.  Certainly not easy to shoot people down, but it's quite immersive whether you do or not.

I still have yet to even fire up a Career because I've been practicing with various aircraft types.  Obviously the German side is easier since most of their scouts are pretty forgiving in a stall.

Well I'm in one of those can't find any of my games to hold my interest phases, but nothing keeps a junkie from his game sale fix ;)


I picked up Zafehouse diaries and now i'm obsessed [ at least for the next few minutes  ;D] with seeing how long i can survive. It turns out not that long. It is a new record for me. I'm playing survivor mode where you start by yourself. Met and lost 2 survivors along the way. Sent one survivor out to start a fire in a nearby house to distract the zombies, so maybe some would leave the hospital area because i needed medicine. Survivor never did set the fire but got infected and died when i tried to amputate her arm upon her return to our safehouse. Sent the other survivor out and she got jumped and killed while on patrol. So i was alone and wounded, the hospital was not an option with 3 zombies outside and 20 inside...no way...so i decide to recon and then breach a bar hoping for medical supplies. Made it in and managed to search the whole place.....but no joy..some food but no medical supplies. So i have to move on....got jumped by a gang of zombies on route to recon the next likely place.

Nefaro,

That screenshot of yours is quite unlike the official screenies of the game.  Your screen actually looks fairly decent.  Better than the official versions because one can see the finer map details more clearly.  The town icons for instance don't look too bad imo even though they have been criticized. 

The military stance buttons seem to be gone and replaced by a single button for the whole unit container? 

The only thing I will comment on negatively is that the unit icons in the unit container at the bottom of the screen kind of look like blue tinted scrabble pieces arranged in the wooden tray holder.

Yeah, the artwork is pretty good.  I'm liking the map graphics too, because when you see them up close in hi-res the textures actually look pretty damn good.  That's easier to see with a non-winter shot, however.  I was originally a bit wary of how the map looked before I purchased, and it's still kinda hard to make out some of the region borders, but I'm happy with it overall.

Quote
The military stance buttons seem to be gone and replaced by a single button for the whole unit container?

Unfortunately the Stance and Aggressiveness buttons are all rolled up into a single button, so we now have to press the appropriate one before all four are available for use.  This just makes for more unnecessary UI button pressing and hope this doesn't continue to be the case in future titles.  Pocus told me that the new interface doesn't allow for all eight of those buttons to be placed back out in the open right now, but they're adding hotkeys for them.  I don't think the new Order slide-out UI features really gave anything in the way of better functionality, and it's worse in the case of the Stance & Aggressiveness 'ROE' buttons.

I hope they can get them back to easier access in the future.  :-[

For some reason the 'counters' at the bottom of my screen are sitting a few pixels higher than the background behind them.  That screenie was taken on my laptop, at 1366x768 so the vertical space isn't very large so that may have cramped things up a bit.  I've not been concerned with it because the hotspot for the Edge Screen Scrolling is a bit larger than I'd like therefore I keep accidentally Edge-scrolling the map when pointing at something near the side of the screen.   This just helps keep my mouse cursor that much further away from the edge, so I've not mentioned it.   I should probably ask for the edge hotspot to be reduced a bit instead.  Along with turning the opacity of the unit counters to full because we don't really need to see a vague image of the map through them.

General Grant's Army of the Tennessee moving against Beauregard's Army at Corinth.  I have McClernand's Corps in strategic reserve, covering against a reb Corp floating about somewhere and moving to keep Beauregard from sneaking by northeast towards the Tennessee River.

Off-screen is General Pope's army preparing for an amphibious assault on Island Number 10 on the Mississippi River. General Buell is to the east, on the other side of the Tennessee River, capturing some important industrial cities and rail junctions.  :)

Thus far Grant hasn't been surprised in a morning Shiloh attack.  ;)

At this point, I'm just playing Bioshock Infinite to finish the game.  I guess the story is compelling in it's own way, but the game play is meh.  I'm not sure what it is but it just doesn't have the same ability to draw me into the storyline.

Wargame Airland Battle

2 posts due to size limit.

I believe I've upped the number of attachments to six. Try it and see.

The issue was the 2000k. The images were about 600k, 650k, 750k.

Roger. I've bumped it significantly. 10 MB is probably too much. Hopefully it won't be abused.
