  2. Yeah for some people the installation creates a new folder (for me it was a "program files" folder inside the ZH folder) wich makes the game to be installed inside the program file folder but outside the EA folder. So if you have this eror message check carefully where the game is installed. ;)

    The T-44

    At the end of 1944 the Red Army had hundreds of T-44s. They were operational and ready for action. They could have used them if they choosed to. So it makes this unit available and operational....much more than the Maus ;)

  10. Ok here's the best way to succeed step by step: First you have to make sure your units are not going to ....bah let it go...Better to wait the official release because this mission wont be available anymore.
  11. We are closer than ever to an official release...In this release you will be able to play against AI in skirmish games or trough the 20 missions available (11 Soviets + 9 Germans) ;)

    When Is 2.7 Released?

    About BM-13 accuracy.....for all artillery gun and rocket artillery i founded interesting datas and used them for the current units. So range, damage and accuracy are closer to real values now. Like Rapt said, Kats need to be used in group if you want to increase your chance to hit something...but once they hit something they hit it hard....like a superweapon. Kats range was also the shorter among all artillery units...in game you need to protect them very well and use it in a hit and run way... The American Long Tom has the top range among all artillery units. It can hurt the ennemy badly well behind his front line ;)

    Who Still Plays?

    When these missions maps will be finished i could be back on the active roster....Would be cool to have some of the old dinosaurius like Dr. Shrinker and Abba back on the battlefield as well ;)

    Progress Update

    Well...in fact Korona gave you a clue when he said :"I don't have the time to build an entire aircraft carrier, new planes and new infantry just for a joke" and also: "The models are real but the naval gameplay ain't " ...the truth is out there ;)

    Whatever the number (v3.0 or v2.7), the new version will be very special compare to the old versions...and those who will survive to the long wait will cry tears of joy when they try it the first time :)

    Thank You Derelict Studios

    Interesting comments DH....I would add this: From the begining so many people worked on this mod (Smurf, killakanz, Flyby, Biohazard, Dr Shrinker, Phoib, Logan, Korona and many others i forget...). So when i jumped in, it was already a cool ww2 mod. I was fortunated enough to work with Korona "von Braun" for the last 2 years. As leader of this mod he makes things happening in an unexpected way, always using his genious to find new effects, new units or even new ways to improve gameplay. During the last year we got precious help from different people like Logan (lots of researchs for historical datas about tanks and aircrafts plus mission scenarios), Flyby (was generous to allow us to use some elements of his amazing "1946" mod), Phoib (many new historical buildings plus advices and support), killakanz (was also very generous to let us use his cool tank models like the Churchill, Matilda, Valentine, etc) and others. Add to this all the beta testers input (DH is doin a hell of a job at doing detailed evaluation of every new mission and the whole gameplay in general), Raptor is now an important member of this team and provide important input about gameplay and units. I think i could say this mod is a good merge between history and gameplay and even before i join the team i was like you DirtyHarry, ready to pay to buy such a mod like this. The problem right now is that we still having new ideas almost every week (like the new aircraft system wich would be implement "soon") and consequently the public release is always pushed back again and again. I think we have to put a stop to the new ideas, wrap it up and have a release in the next 2 months. Anyway, Korona is having some good ideas to increase Blitz II exposure when the official release will be ready. So stay tune, the best is to come! :)

    The Missions

    I forgot to mention that missions maps are much bigger than usual multiplayers maps. So it allow massive unit deployment on large front line and/or deep territories. But to make such big maps i had to save time and at same time get decent map layout. Thats why on some maps i used part of multiplayers maps (terrain, villages, etc) from the past versions. It could be the amazing village set up Dr Shrinker made on some of his fabulous maps or some set up from the old Challenge maps or even some maps used in the WWII experience.
