General Problems

What this game desperately needs is a bit more feedback. I love this game, it rocks watching as successful flanking tactics can turn the tide, and how squads like in wait for movement, opening fire the second someone emerges (and getting caught in the open is deadly).

Things I'd like to see:

Notification of squad status: Supressed, Low Morale, etc. The graphics don't tell me enough. Spotting men with their heads down is hard.

Sometimes you don't get a firing line when ordering troops to fire. Does that indicate no ammo or supression?

Sometimes troops move into a position around where you ordered them to go, but sit a little behind a wall or hedge and when you check their LOF they can't see move than a foot. In that case why didn't they move up to the wall, or occupy the house right next to it? Can they not see because they're hiding??

I'd like troops to tell you when they're out of ammo, and I'd also like some way to know which particular guy is out of ammo. Is it an SMG guy? A rifle guy?

When deploying, it'd help if troops were moving instantly to their new home. It's fustrating when moving someone from one flank to the next. Especially when you're trying to check out areas for their LOF.

When a man dies his kills are wiped from the info screen... why? Shouldn't happen IMO.

Other than that, rocking game :) This is a MUST NETWORK game :)

Oh, and add a demo mode :) It used to be standard in your replays, but no more. I'd love to watch the AI assault another AI in the background :)

I'm working on a new version right now which should address some of your problems:

> Sometimes you don't get a firing line when ordering troops to fire. Does that indicate no ammo or supression?

Yes, if no line appears the man is suppressed and won't fire anyway.

> but sit a little behind a wall or hedge and when you check their LOF they can't see

But if you give the order to fire the men look around themselves for a place from where they can see the target and they'll move there and then shoot.

> I'd like troops to tell you when they're out of ammo,

The new version shows a summary of the man (his name, rank, ammo and what he's thinking) as you move the mouse over him.

> When deploying, it'd help if troops were moving instantly to their new home

OK, I'll speed that up.

> When a man dies his kills are wiped from the info screen

I've fixed that.

> nicer graphics for the unit list

All the graphics are now stored as .BMP files so anyone can modify them and hopefully I'll be able to get some top notch graphic artists interested...

> a tutorial that explains why people stop moving or fighting sometimes

I'll have a go at expanding the help file.

with the personal summary could this be done using a shift-hover type move, cos i find it annoying now trying to shoot a tank near my guys, and all i can see is LMG instead of a tank, but id like to be able to still see what a guy is at a glance, rather than using a menu function

I mentioned this in another topic but it's worth mentioning again. When a unit dies it registers what killed it. This allows you to figure out, without seeing the enemy, if it was a tank, a boozka or a field gun. Surely a wrecked tank is a wrecked tank, its death shouldn't be giving you this vital intelligence?

if someone could see what killed him killing him fine give it as that, but otherwise listed as small arms or shells/arty or whatever the general term for that is (large arms??).

random probably poor idea - how about if a guy goes off on a wander and gets dead, as they frequently do, he gets reported as MIA until someone finds his body.

kind of to do with wandering off - a squad out of radio conact would surely try to get back in radio conatact - when they have reached their objective the squad leader sends a guy to head back to the last contact or up a hill.

on that note whos in charge of a squad, and who has the radio/how is radio contact determined??

There should be just a few things showing how he is dead:
blown apart
bullet[s]
mutilated(bayoneted, run over)
burned up

sounds gruesome, but it is a little more realistic.
