I'm not sure if I'm in the right forum for this but I'll ask anyways. Can the game be viewed without unit bases? I know that in the Campaign series this is possible so I wonder about this game. I've always prefered playing the game in 3D without unit bases.

Thanks.

ive just spent 7 days trying to get this game uploaded to 1.2(hoping that it would have added a x5th VIEW that you can actually play with)and sadly NO,if it isnta broken link or three,then i get some wierd FTP message and update cancels.what a waste of money this purchase was sale or not i feel robbed period.I have JTNW that has the x5 views which leaves at least one playable view so youd think theyd have implemented this with JTCW too but nope.Im not about to purchase a pair of "glasses"so i can find and see my units!Seven days and in the last Hour ive had help with someone who works here who is a friend of mine,ive had more help in last hour from him than i have in whole week from Slith?Matrix.I guess i have to accept ive bought a "bad Game"and move on as my other 30 titles purchased in last 5 years work ok,just be nice to be offered another game at same price as im not after a refund but sadly i dont see this coming either.Left a bad taste in my mouth,ill be more wary about buying "old "games from Matrix.When youa sk for a refund for this game you get "sorry we dont do that"...but isnt the game broken the if you cant either update correctly or if you can like i did i really thought id find an updated 5th view like in JTNW but no.Hope any other buyers of this game over this xmas period has more luck than i did.Happy 2019!:)
