Real time World War II combat simulation

New beta version - 3.99u

Postby Sean OConnor » Thu Feb 16, 2006 12:23 pm

I've made a big change to the timing routines in the game which means that the game puts much less strain on your computer's CPU (instead of needing 50=100% CPU time it's down to about 6% now). This will make laptop batteries last much longer when playing the game!

It's available at the normal download link for beta testers.

Could you please let me know if it runs OK, or if anyone has any speed issues - especially at the initial troop placement stage? Also, if you spot any wierd graphics glitches let me know!

If you press the "T" key you can see the game timings and each of the 'stage' parts needs to complete in 20ms or not much more than that.

An extra benefit of this change is that in the future I'll be able to make different MGs fire at different rates instead of all firing at 800 rounds per minute.

Thanks!

AWOL: Need new link for 3.99 beta

Postby daehttub_2000 » Tue Mar 28, 2006 9:14 pm

Hi Sean,

I've been a bit tied up and haven't visited this site in a while. I was going to take a look at making the armor a bit more realistic (e.g. Shermans killing Panthers with ease is a bit far-fetched).

My old link to your beta download doesn't work anymore. Do you have a new one for 3.99?

Thanks

mine sticks and stops its way when loading, and then finally freezes. i started to just start the game straight off and set the troops up during gameplay, but then i got a bit fed up, had lots of college work and found a nifty little 2D shooter called 'Soldat', kinda a cross between worms and UT2004.

When you say it sticks when loading, is that when you double click on the icon or when a game is being created?

its all fine up to the unit selection, then when i select to place my units, it scrolls from the objective to where my units are where it messes up. its like the computer is vastly overloaded - if i have music playing in the background i get half second burst of the same bit over and over, like my old desktop pc did when it crashed. if i can click play straight away it goes into the timed game and runs fine, otherwise it takes frikkin ages 2 get the start game button to even work. ive had it get to the point where the comuter has crashed. bit naff really.

im running xp on a laptop, otherwise havent a clue bout any other specs :?
