    So 58 Million plus people are playing this and paying the band $0.00? I think they need a new manager.

    No copyright / royalty / licensing issues with this?
  3. No audio on videos

    I can hear the audio when I just click on the "play" button - i.e. not having to open a separate you-tube tab / window. Not sure what's different, but I suspect that makes it a PC issue, not a Forum issue?

  5. No, I understand "reasons" When I do the progress score on Monday I'll just update to reflect the first two.
  6. Thanks for the definitive response. Did you have a preference for a date (Fri Ni, Sat Ni, or Sun Ni your time)?
  7. Chris, Thanks, but can you provide your availability (dates) here, if you haven't already? Sorry unsure if you sent me a response via email already but I can't see a post from you in the "poll" thread:
  8. Other two sets of Orders should be up by the end of this weekend.
  9. Not yet, the poll closes on the 31st of January. Then I'll work out if we will proceed or just shelve it for another time.

These are the signature units for a Naval Infantry Battalion, probably reinforced with Divisional and Regimental specialist assets (Recon, ATGM, AARMD and AD) as well as fixed and rotary wing (attack and transport).

    #2: Well for starters everyone goes to the same Orders so both Inf and Tks know what is meant to happen. Then after that, Radio and if you have one the Infantry / Tank telephone. Worst case a lot of waving to get the Crew Commander's attention.
  12. Use of 50 Cal on M1A1

    Should I ask why are you resurrecting a 9 year old thread? In any case to answer your question, yes, you can control it. As posted in this same thread towards the top:
  13. As you posted here I presume you mean for this one. FWIW: The RT '18 Bling Sub-Committee has had a couple of meetings.
  14. Starship Trooper type Bug or a cold? Glad you can make it.
