Re: Historical Add-on For Blitzkrieg mod

We don’t work with afrika mod, so can’t tell yah how they do it. That’s just another mod that we’ve given permissions to modify on top of this mod. Sorry man. It could be our latest patches are not as compatible as the previous patch and so somehow impacted the AI. But that’s really complex. BK mod...

Re: Anti tank mines and who uses them actively?

I use them but can't lay a whole line of them in one go like you can in vanilla COH. This was changed because if in the "line" one mine exploded, it often set off the entire line. You can hold "shift" when you're placing mines and will allow you to do multiple clicks and lay a mine at each place yo...

Re: Historical Add-on For Blitzkrieg mod

Try setting to 1 through 10 instead of 0. Maybe it still needs some time instead of no time. No idea though. Maybe it’s using vcoh build orders. Because in vcoh the first pío marches out I think. Thanks, I'll give that a go. In BK main (not Afrika) the Americans and Axis both build their first base...

Re: Historical Add-on For Blitzkrieg mod

OK, don't know about the win8 thing but I found difference between "personality.ai" between Afrika and BK is @ "eta_structure_wait_time" which is *0* (ZERO), ie "build immediately" in BK but in Afrika it is *150*, ie "can wait so other mission targets take over". So I changed it from 150 to 0 in Afr...

Re: Historical Add-on For Blitzkrieg mod

Do you know where I need to look in the AI files for the weighting on when to build base structures ? The problem seems to be that Axis Sappers immediately go out to capture CP's first then eventually they get to base structures. They should be doing what the American AI does; immediately build the...

Re: Historical Add-on For Blitzkrieg mod

Only thing that comes to mind: sometimes, in other games, AI decision making is influenced by the current game tick rate, which could differ per operating system. No idea about CoH though. Thanks. That could make sense (scratches head). I've been delving into the AI files because on a larger x6 map...

On further investigation I did an experiment. I installed into my dual boot installation of Windows 8 that has never had COH installed in it. The Axis sappers were suddenly building base structures and there were light axis AT guns and axis MG's all over the place, as there should be. So I booted ba...

Re: Inclusion of M22 Locust in British Airborne doctrine

Yes they are minimal differences but the M22 could be like the little john adapter upgrade but you get a different tank. The M22 was designed specifically for delivery by glider so it could have a quicker build time for example. In my understanding of this doctrine play tactics, at least the way I p...

Re: Inclusion of M22 Locust in British Airborne doctrine

Model,reason, why brits and not US? I think the Tetrach is enough and the Locus armor is similar. No reason for it. If you'd read what I linked you'd know the British ordered this tank from the Americans. So, I disagree. The Tetrarch is very weak against german armour. They can be used in interesti...

Camera rotation at end of the game and way to retire units

A couple of suggestions for the ever amazing BK mod. 1. How about adding the camera rotation effect used at the end of the game when the victory or lose message comes up ? Relic use this to great effect in their campaign and I think it looks quite dramatic. 2. Could a way of retiring units be added ...

Hi, I would like to request the last release pre the major 5.2.0 update as a separate (non-Steam) download. The 5.2.0 update has caused major problems with my AI teams.

I suspect it's a map issue since on some maps they deployed the armoured truck just fine, on others they get stuck like this *shrug* For those playing with the AI (although I assume this applies to human players as well as the AI still had to deploy their British HQ vehicle) the solution is to play...
