Default MerZee beaucoup!Zeelen Dank!

Thanks for the wishes Mr. Zee but where I am going (Panama City) I only have the Panama canal and retired dictators to fear... I tamed all the water buffaloes and the only camels you find are those sold in packs of 20...

Anyway I'll be staying in touch and always looking forward to reading my favourite threads....

Hey Zee, great to hear you're almost done.
One question though, I have the downloaded version of T34 vs Tiger from gamers gate.
Every time I try to install a mod the game crashes.
I'm using Window 7 home premium 64 bit OS.
It's kind of funny? It has a programs folder and also an (x86 programs folder).
It seems when I try to install a mod that has a self installer, the mod goes into the regular programs folder..while the main program is in the X86 programs folder.
Am I doing something wrong?

Doug,I think the answer is to install the game into a different directory.
I use C:\Lighthouse Interactive\T34vsTiger for example.
Don't use the Program Files (x86) directory.There is a reason why,but it escapes me.

Chucky is on to something but I can't remember exactly what to do.
The guys who have win7 would know though.

Hate to say this, but Gamersgate doesn't sell T34 vs Tiger, either as a download or as a cd. They sell Steel Fury, but not T34 vs Tiger.

I have this sim installed on Win7, in the Programs(x86) section, and have no problems here. I always make sure any installer is pointing to this folder, before I use it. I always manually locate the folder (through the installer) to make sure its going into the correct folders. Works fine every time!

And ZW, make sure you have sufficient LOD's with those new models, they look great BTW!!! I sometimes wonder what level of lod's the original designers used?

Hi eddie,
Thanks for the win7 help. And the game engine uses a maximum of 5 LODs
Which is plenty.
I have yet to complete a tank model with the LOD models and the crashed
models (destroyed models). I know this may be hard to believe but it's true.
The reason is the way I am working out the performance and accurate movement of the vehicles. Once that is complete for this years production
I will have the certainty that the adding the LOD models Crewmembers
and damaged models as well as the fake and volume shadows to the tried and true main models.
Also I have in mind for next years production a focus on biuldings and structures that are destructible and of various sizes and styles that will
be the foundation of new cities and towns too.

So a lot of work is still ahead eddie,

ZW

PS: The new Tigers and Panthers are right around 30k polys.

Ah yes,Eddie has it.
As I remember,ZW's installer needs to be told where the T34vsTiger installation is.
I think.
It's may age,I forget stuff.

Hi Guys,
Been working on the manual control of my new Tiger for the last 4 days, making headway. The last of the issues are concerning tank mobility.
This will have to be resolved prior to release. But the good news is all that is
being learned here will apply directly with all future Playable tanks and even
playable Guns like the Fak 88 and the Pak 43-88, etc..

Vorwärts Kameraden!

ZW

It's actually -2147483648
But I have to say this is not as easy as you might think. This is a real challenge for me to break this mystery. Everything else is good to go.
How is it going with you?


Vorwärts Kamerad!

Quelqu´un au forum francophone de simu essaie d' avoir les dernieres nouvelles au sujet du mod Koursk de ZW.J-aimerais lui repondre mais j-en suis incapable.Mon mot de passe n'est plus reconnu et a chaque fois on me demande d' entrer un code de chiffres et lettres qui n'apparait pas sur mon ecran.Donc je suis effectivement bloque.Si tu pouvais lui donner les derniers topos( le gars s'appelle Gaet je crois) ce serait chouette!

Merci

and the Panther, so I want to get it right. The paint job is the base
color and is not entirely complete. Once the base is complete with
weathering and dirt etc. I will create some camo skins.





With antenna too


Vorwärts!

EXCELLENT!! Looks GREAT!
I always liked the tiger stripes camo.
