PC Specs
 
Hi Knispel( as in the great Kurt Knispel, the greatest tank ace of WWII and indeed of history???Not the overrated Waffen SS darling of the crowd M. Witmann?????)

My pc specs are processor Intel ci 550, 2.80 gigahertz , 8 gigabytes of RAM,a one Terabyte HD, and my graphic card is an Sapphire HD 5550 ultimate, 1gig of ddr2 memory( my greatest error never go under ddr3 when it comes to gpus).Not a bad machine but my GPU defintely needs to be upgraded. I'll go for an ATI HD5570, with 1 gigabyte of DDR5 and 58.4 gb/second of data speed. The best in it's class for less than $ 90.

The new missions and reworked old ones are impressive.The good news is thta campaign missions both new and Zee-made are not tough on fps.However to play the the Kursk ones you'll need solid specs.

Cheers

[QUOTE=frinik;1517654]Hi Zee;

My very last report. I played Kursk mission 3 and is it ever harrowing!!!!!! But it's worth it.Lots of tanks, ideal landscape for ambushes, great fun but 2 issues to report.

1) Superhuman AI which took me out through thick wood with 200 metres of my starting point with accurate marksmanship!!!! My Tiger disabled I started the mission again this time going through the woods to flank the Sovs. No matter again I was shot at through dense forest....They can still see you while you can't see them!I wonder if turning off the AI accuracy scaler that you have in the game menu really makes a difference?


Finally I had enough and decided to cheat a little...I became invulnerable and had the pleasure of blasting away at enemy armour and AT guns with total impunity.My Tiger had 59 shell impacts at the end of the successful mission and looked like a perfect Swiss Emmenthaler cheese.....


Hi Frinic, thats what i said.

The AI in Kursk Mission 3 is too superior. Its impossible to shoot at them, cause they see you from 1600 meters and kill you.



first of all i must apologize, cause playing the new mission a second time it was different in any kind.

The first time i was following the other tannks, wich were taken a shortcut through the forrest. Teh second time they didi it again. Following the tanks leads you in that position wich i didnt want to be. So speaking clearly i saw only trees, a shot from left, a shot from right and so on. This way its impossible to see even to fight the enemy tanks. :wah:

I decided to follow the road. This way it was another feeling and now i liked it very much ZW, It is realy hard but great.:D

2) minor issue in the after game tabbing only the SU122s and T34s are shown; the Soviet 122 mm guns and SU152s are left out.

The 3 Kursk missions, and the new first Soviet missions are excellent.Action oriented, lots of action however my fps took a dive(5.8 to 10.1) with Kursk/Dubovna due to large number of units present on the map.You'll need strong specs to play it smooothly.I also replayed Escaping Red Army Pincers which I also enjoyed taking out 5 Soviet tanks at between 3400 to 3800 metres before rushing up and finishing another 11 at 1600 metres and less. My tank was disabled but I destroyed 16 enemy tanks...

Zee; do you have any [plans to introduce T34/76 (Beutepanzer T34/7r) booty tanks captured by the Germans in the Kursk missions? I think quite a few were used during Zitadelle...

Another question; where in the game folders do you find the technical files dealing with muzzle velocity, ammo complement, speed, armour and gun specs of each tank?

Mission accomplished; very interesting experience to be a tester....

Cheers
:salute:

Dear LC submerged,

I''ll gladly accept Panzer II duty as I saw the cute Panzer IIs created by ZeeWolf in the new missions zipping by nimbly while the lumbering Tigers were straining to go to the battlefield. I saw plenty of Tigers destroyed but no Panzer II....

I saw the radio antennas on the tanks and thought of you.:D



Hi frinik,
Make sure to install the "ZW_October_FIX_1" it has a new terrain map
that opens up the forest in the Kursk Mission 3. Please note that Kursk M3
has no heavy artillery units but it does have Soviet 120mm Mortars. These
Mortars will knock a Tiger out because of the angle of the 120mm round
comes down on top of the thinnest armor of the Tiger.
There is no plan on captured T34s in Kursk, but I do want to make a Soviet
Kursk Mission when I finish the t34 1943 Hard edge turret w/commanders
copula. I think the stock interior will work and be convincing and a perfect
fit.
The tech files folder is:
<drive>:\Lighthouse Interactive\T34vsTiger\Scripts\Common

Now, concerning the enemy accuracy issue: You have to develop a
discipline to prob for enemy positions. And once you draw fire to use the
reverse gear and quickly back out of the kill zone. The Soviets created Kill
zones the were carefully and accurately dialed in. And you now have some
experience on how deadly they were.

Vorwärts Kameraden! :salute:

A question i asked for: Is it possible that some tanks are following me ( Kursk M3 ) and not the others through the woods. I realized, splitting up the Tigers is better as you can save losses.

Hi LC,
There is a two pronged attack; one heads straight through the forest
toward Dubrova the other protects the right flank.:up:
And yes, I can give you a Tiger wing-man and a Hanomag to resupply
too. Is that what you mean? :)

Vor! :salute:

Hi ZW,

yes this is what i mean but i need some more Tigers as those ones who are heading to Dubrova are many, can you talk with the Zugführer to give me some more tanks as i want to flank and attack the enemy from the right side.


OR you as the Panzer General can give me some tactics how to start the battle. Through the forrest is impossible. I cant see nothing and the enemy is tearing me apart in those woods.:salute:

Hi Frinik, Yes, Knispel is, and always will be the greatest tank ace of all time. And thats also where my nickname comes. Thank you for your system specs report. I'm planning to buy new computer at the beginning of 2011, that's why i'm curious how it run in different systems.

Cheers, Kni(ght)spel

That's fantastic Priscalan, Yesterday I finally fixed the floating t34s issue
Found out how to address the LOD of the terrain to the point of addressing
this problemo. :know:

I have some more issues fixed to the frinik and LC found. I put them in a
fix file to install like the last update.

to modify
 
Hello Zee

I noticed some small changes to fix:

1 - in the file KurskMission3.rsr, spelling errors to be corrected (in briefing text :You Will ->You will; 13th Pz Rigement->13th Pz Regiment; exspect->expect; in objectives text: Breakthruogh->Breakthrough)

2 - on the maps the german anti-tank guns are green (example german mission3 near east bunker)

Here's all
:D
