I still there and here,
well, I did a lot of testing on that, did a lot of talking to JC about it, as the Allies I do not see it, will go in shortly and try a head to head and see if I can make it happen still, but to be honest, I never did see too much feedback from the GE players, the Dover and Recon were bigger issues to most players
most of the Dover has been fixed, Recon and FBs have been touched up (FB were real strange, make them so they could fight, MB couldn't hit anything, make them so the wouldn't fight and the MB could hit, but the FB got slaughtered, I really fought the idea of putting a Tail gun into a Typoon, so we came up with something a little different, it works, but it is not real)
give the newer patches and OOBs a try (I will look into the Freeseray) and see if it feels any better
overall, this could be a dream come true
if Matrixs can rework the games (Talonsoft had a good number of decent games, I own almost every one on the list) we will be sitting Wargamers Heaven
Well, good to see y'all gave it more of an effort (freeze-ray) anyway. I don't expect that every bug gets fixed especially by somebody doing so as the unoriginal author, and considering that the fix that likely caused it had fixed such an awful problem, it would be pretty stymying to fix the freeze only to see the lack of catching up to fighters reemerge.
I've been so out-of-the-loop with this game, or JC's forum, that I clicked on the forum link somebody provided and somehow got through all the nonsense and somehow even recalled my logonid and password; and it worked no less. Just did it out of curiousity. Of course I had no use for the forum anyway until the fix was made and since for lack of popularity it seemed nobody wanted anything more to do with it than wait for a infamous enough uprising I decided I would pass.
Yeah it's funny you talk about other bugs, but mine was so devastating to me that I couldn't get deep enough into the game to find anymore setbacks. I usually pretty tolerant with bugs, as I can find some way around them (When I had USAAF for example, my planes on patrol, on occasion, would attack themselves [an AppleIIE back then] and I discovered a method to greatly minimize that). But this, but this, was just too devastating. It makes defense of any of the more coastal airfields impossible, even when you know where they're going (unless you like to stop an entire raid with one plane). I was always playing the AI BTW. Never did I try to recreate it HTH.
Back in the day HS, I could recreate this bug at will (and probably could here today, only, as I said, I don't have the sufficient patches to get it to the point where it appears), and JC just told me he didn't have enough gripes about it to waste his time on it (which you just basically did as well). I suppose if the bugs you spoke about, or mine, were bad enough to make at least half the people give up playing it till it was fixed, then everybody lost out. It would be pretty futile to have freeze-ray fixed, if I found I just couldn't deal with those other bugs, but then I didn't have a chance to see hwo revolted I would get at them. I said it all along, the lack of people playing the Germans was driving preferring other things to the ignoring of freeze-ray, and seems I was at least half right. Even many of the German players probably didn't think of abandoning all of France and defending the German coastal airfields, as I did, adding further to the lack of concern for fixing it. Oh well. Hopefully GG has the right stuff.
