Couple questions

Hi, can you please tell me if there's a hot key for the control panel?
Also, have you considered a zoom showing maybe 50-75% more of the playing area?

That's a good suggestion and I've made F1 the hotkey for doing that. Send me an email and I'll give you the link for the latest version (3.0b)

That would be nice and I'll have a think about it. It'd be a fair bit of work though...

Been looking at the scale more closely and it's really about right. Zooming it out more would make the units too small. Being easily able to switch the control panel on off will be a big help.

Couple more questions.
Why does the commander's white square sometimes blink?
What do the different tracer colored lines mean? Are there certain colors for the main gun of a tank and other colors for small arms for example?
I saw a couple of enemy with a purple circle but mostly my guys seemed to fire at enemy that I couldn't see. Is that normal? Or were those lines the enemy firing at my guys?

You might be right there.

In the next version you can hit F1 to switch the control panel on and off.

The blinking man is "you".

Yellow for your shots, red for the enemy and purple for all sorts of tank shells, bazookas etc...

Yes, your troops are just firing at where they spotted enemy muzzle flashes from. They can't shoot very accurately as they don't know exactly where the enemy is but they will put down some suppresive fire.

OK. I sent you an email for the link, along with a few more questions. :?
