You may want to check this on your maps. Just thinking that my units may be able to spot an enemy unit but i would never know unless I pan forward a bit to see what enemy icons pop up. Not sure of the impact on the frames though. I will try increasing it tonight as you state above if possible. I know the frame rate I get right now on this scenario is not that good. So I am assuming that if I increase this it will probably get worse.


I figured this out. The problem was with my settings. I could of swore I set my resolution the same as my desktop but for some reason it changed. It was set at a lower ressy than what I wanted. For some reason this cut down on the distance I could spot units. I set the resolution up to what my desktop was and there you go I had much further sight than previous. Not sure if this is a bug or what but I would not think that playing at different resolutions would give different results. I will have to test this again.

The 503rd had a hard fought battle as we departed Mezotur. The farmstead changed hands several times. We finally secured the farmstead and cleared the road for the advance to Turkeve. One of my Tigers was knocked out, but was repaired overnight and is able to take part in the assault on turkeve.

Thanks!

How is your core force now?

My core force is intact. I've had some damage and a losses, but they have all been recovered at end of battles so far. I have several medals. I enjoyed the play around the farmstead. I ended up committing two infantry platoons with support from 1 HT. At one point I had to divert a Tiger to come back and provide support.\

Thanks

I started the first battle before the campaign. Then I started the campaign. Then I played the first battle not with the campaign all the way through. During this time we had a lot of testing and updates that required me to start over, delete files, reinstall, etc.

The first battle was tedious and took a lot of turns to complete. I don't know if I have the patience to play the first battle again just to continue the campaign.

I started this again. Two days and 57 turns to get through the first battle. I have commented before on this one.

Second battle was fairly easy. No losses. On to the mud.

In battle one, I lost one PZIV, the rest were recovered. I think I might have lost a squad or two. Battle two, no losses. Battle three I forgot to check to see if I could buy replacements.

As you describe your first battle was quite like it happened IRL.
The second too.

SPOILER

Do not expect such easy battles any more :).

szartur,

I finished the first battle in this campaign using the new patch. It wasn't any easier this time around! Went to turn 43 and I ended with a Marginal victory. Your AT guns were well hidden and well positioned.

When I finally scored the victory, I think I might have had only 1 or 2 tanks left with no damage. I lost quite a few, and quite a few more had either track damage, or engine damage.

Thanks!

The second engagement proceeded more according to orders. As the 3rd Co. 503 Bn pressed forward we surprised a shipment of AT guns moving toward the front. I spread my three plattoons out and ordered them to advance. After about 15 minutes of moving forward and shooting as AT guns exposed their positions, I thought I had silenced the guns. I gave the order to the entire company to engage and move forward. A couple of unseen ATs opened up, but were soon silenced by my Tigers.

As one of my Tigers started down the track, he was suprised by two squads of Infantry making a suicidal close assault. They damaged his engine, but soon the rest of the Tigers were supporting and the enemy infantry was was taken prisoner. A legendary victory for the 3rd Company, Abt. 503.

We'll rest and regroup in the village and head out first thing in the morning.

There was a request for the campaign files, so I've packed them into a JSMGE zip file. If you don't use JSGME you can unzip the zipfile and see where the files go. I assume Artur won't mind, but if he does, or if he has a later version hopefully he'll post here.

Here is a link: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/6783831/Sztarturs%20Campaign%20Bundle.zip

Thanks

This is turning out to be a "Hard Morning" . AT guns opened up on the Tigers as the left Mezotere. The Tigers stopped to engage, and then the mortars started. These Tigers don't have to worry too much about 81mm mortars, but This platoon starts buttoning up as the shells get closer.

I'm still having "A Hard Morning". I've only been able to get a few turns each day. I'm about Turn 17. I'm enjoying this battle. it has something for everyone in my force to do.

I've lost 2 Pz Grndr squads and 2 HTs to mortar fire, and 2 others routing for last several turns but finally rallied. A ZIS took out one Pz IVs. Then I was hit in my right flank and I have 2 more Pz Grndr Squads routing.

I haven't siezed any of the objectives, but I'm approaching the first farmstead now.

Another PzIV is taken out as I cleared the first farmstead NE of Mezotur. It's been a hard morning for the Pz IVs.

I just played "Ivan Strikes Back"...Got a "Legendary Victory"....Didnt lose any forces on this one. I had SPz Abt 503/III/I & II take out like 15 tanks by themselves...Was awesome to give them some of their own medicine for a change. Past couple battles had taken a beating with my tanks. Mostly just motor damage and such...but, a few were total write offs. Wanted to post a screenshot, but it didnt come out.
