Re: Almost impossible to join skirmish games due to seeming BKM lobby bug

Skirmishers can play bk if they want, but have to accept the mod like it is and without any hope to see any support for something else than PVP. You cant hope either any care from devs for skirmish games since they are themselves specialized on PVP only. I may be wrong, I've not tested, but I would...

Almost impossible to join skirmish games due to seeming BKM lobby bug

I in the last few days installed Steam, COH and BKM on Steam. I've today been trying to join Skirmish games. I almost cannot do so, and it seems to be a bug. When I join a skirmish game, after about 10 to 15 seconds, the host leaves. This happens again and again and again and again. If I then look i...

Re: New Steam install, no "New Steam Version"

I think actually I've been a bit harsh on Steam about how things are arranged. It used to be worse - there was CoH, CoH:ToV and then "New Steam Version". This is confusing. So now "New Steam Version" is hidden and comes automatically - this works for anyone who didn't know about ...

Re: New Steam install, no "New Steam Version"

Getting closer, but not there yet. BK mod now is no longer complaining it cannot find the COH executable, but I get this instead; Game is not being run as a known Company of Heroes product. Try again by launching game from Steam. I'll start trying to fix this one in the morning. As an aside, when I ...

New Steam install, no "New Steam Version"

I use WINE on Linux to run COH. I have been using the non-Steam game but now the mod is Steam only I installed Steam and then installed COH:TOV. It doesn't work - it seems to try to authenticate with Relic. I check the forum and read the thread about how to install COH. I bought the original and had...

Yes, from Moddb.

Searching on the site itself only returns 5.0.0.

Searching via Google finds 5.1.3 beta.

If so, could someone provide a link, please.

Re: Sturmtiger

Just my two cents... I find the ST has an air of unreality. I don't like it. BZ is all about feeling real. It's too big a bang from a tank. It makes you think - why would an army ever bother with normal tanks? As an aside, I looked over the Wikipedia page. The range if I remember correctly was about...

Re: [5.1.4] DeSync vs AI

I have been experimenting with installing non-Steam COH, and then putting BZ mod on top. Non-Steam COH still retains the ability to run LAN games - the idea is to use a VPN to get my and my friends PCs appearing to the network stack on the same subnet, so we can run a "LAN" game, and see i...

Re: [5.0.0] - friendly AI moves all or almost all units to human player base

Very weird, you might have another mod or something wrong with your files... No other mods. I am sure something is amiss with my install, because the start screen is messed up. I'm hoping the next release fixes it, otherwise I may have to reinstall from scratch. However, it seems odd this would bre...

No one plays it, so it's okay it's broken.

This is not a very good line of argument - the flaw is pretty obvious.

Re: two design flaws in infantry-only games

We COULD count mortar units on the field and block the ability once there are x mortar squads, but this is easily defeated by not picking up the mortars until you have a big stack of them and then crew the whole heap at once. Yeah. This is the other way to get lots of mortars, of course; pick thme ...

two design flaws in infantry-only games

So, other people may well have pointed these issues out before - forgive me if so. I've been playing infantry-only games a bit to sound them out. Two points; 1. many factions have a transport vehicle which is available - but most or all of these have a machine gun, when the vehicle is populated; a s...

Re: [5.0.0] - friendly AI moves all or almost all units to human player base

That might be map's fault. Some custom maps are not adjust to playing AI games. Try playing official, "overplayed maps" This may be true, but I am now of the view that it is also (or perhaps only) actually an *army* problem. I see this problem particularly with the American army. I've bee...

Re: [5.0.0] - friendly AI moves all or almost all units to human player base

It sound like a confusion between two differents situations. 1) your HQ is destroyed or AI HQ is destroyed ; AI send its units around the wrecked HQ until reparation is complete. It's not this. I know about this, and as you say it happens after a HQ has been destroyed. I am talking about from the b...

Re: Proposal for a new game type

Thankyou! What a co-incidence. I downloaded the KwokWC.sga fle and put it in the Blitzkrieg/Archives folder and ran COH; nothing had changed, and I could see no new game types. A quick Google indicates this is a scenario file. Unfortunately, my COH/Blitz install is a bit broken with the most recent ...

Proposal for a new game type

I would like to propose a new game type.

(I have no idea if this is technically possible.)

The game begins with everyone having a full army at their base - so say the usual 150 pop cap.

There are then *no* new units and *no* reinforcement.

So you have to play to conserve your troops.

[5.0.0] - friendly AI moves all or almost all units to human player base

I play single-human-player skirmish games. It's me and some AI, vs all AI. Quite often - at least half the time - one or more friendly AI move all or almost all units to my HQ, and they sit there, doing nothing. If I use the attack/defend flags, they will respond and move to where those flags are, b...

Re: possible solution to lag and deschyronization

On the contrary :-)

You have already helped. We are now looking at getting to 2.602, and then installing BK, and then trying LAN. Once we have it going, we'll report back if it fixes lag/desync.

Re: possible solution to lag and deschyronization

We have 2.700.0 - this may indeed be the problem.

(I do mean by pre-steam, non-steam - at least, that was what we were trying to do).

The current steam version is 2.702.42 (just for reference).

Hmm, I see from some Googling 2.700.0 is the start of Steam.

Re: possible solution to lag and deschyronization

What you do, do run a LAN game, appears to have changed over different versions of COH. What you have described is correct, but I think it is for older versions of COH. Certainly, it is not applicable to the version we have. For us, there is no explicit mention of "LAN". Rather, we have ru...

Hi. My friend and I have been playing skirmish COH together for about seven years now. We recently discovered bkmod and fell in love. A problem we have now though is that our games desychronize after about ten minutes. What I see is completely different to what he sees. (I should mention we both pla...
