  1. Pretty sure the License is activated by a URL. Don't think you should expect an attachment. Unless the time limited licenses work differently to the dongle based ones?
  2. I'm not sure if he monitors it - in line with the comment in his signature block: "Please contact me only via email (my user name here @ my avatar picture .com) ... and I'll be your happy servant."
  3. Not much call for this where I'm located, but RT'19 is set in FEB '91. Various web sites tell me that white fluffy stuff tends to appear in FEB in Germany. I've tried to apply a suitable theme but there does not appear to be a straight forward "deep snow" theme. I can choose from: EU_Winter_Fixed.thm - no idea what was broken Europe_Winter1.thm Europe_Winter2.thm Europe_Winter2_alt.thm Europe_Winter2_jpg.thm FULDA-GAP_Winter.thm Kouvostoliitto Winter Frozen Deep Snow.thm Kouvostoliitto Winter Frozen Medium Snow.thm Kouvostoliitto Winter Light Snow.thm Kouvostoliitto Winter Medium Snow.thm Kouvostoliitto_winter.thm MED_Europe_Winter.thm - MED = Medium or Mediterranean (i.e. Greece / Italy, etc.)? Munster2014winter_ice.thm Pahka winter (frozen_deep snow_plowed).thm Realism_Winter_(snow-heavy).thm snow_fixed.thm Suomussalmi Winter Frozen Deep Snow.thm I've tried Each of the ones with "Europe" in the title and "snow_fixed" But for those 6 attempts my test Truck remains unaffected (moves easily, wheels are not submerged in white stuff. Do I need to resort to the Finnish option to get snow on the ground? The scenario temperature by the way is -5C (so I'm assuming the snow hasn't melted). Is there some sort of database / list that tells me Theme X creates Y effect?

    Not your fault, just thought you might like some feedback about your merchandising partner. I guess there's a slim chance they'll send 2 x Large replacements and tell me to keep the 2 x Small - who knows.

  6. Mugs! Posters! Mousepads! Magnets!

    Disappointed! Ordered 3 x Large. Received 1 x Large, 2 x Small. No doubt about to waste a week with "Customer Service".
  7. Looks like even though I have a pretty screenshot, I'd better review the "Realistic" theme just to confirm how realistic it is.
  8. Yes I know. I just wanted a simple check box to "add snow" (at a very simplistic level).
  9. Skin Request (dejawolf...)

    Ah so now its owned by the RAAF. But more in line with Splash's comments, as those decals optional? If they are then it remains of interest as an IDF vehicle. Personally, I'm not interested as using as a RAAC vehicle since we had the 20Pdr and did not get the 105mm L7 until the new and exciting Leo1s rolled into the barracks in 1973 or thereabouts. Also the Centurions in Aust service had a different Fire Control System and certainly didn't have kill rings on the barrel. Or is that using the newer system that some countries use to identify which unit they belong to? But if as I say the decals are optional, it will probably be snapped up by people wanting to use it.
  10. Skin Request (dejawolf...)

    Sure, but you now have one less potential customer. Hope it goes well for the others though.
  11. OK, not sure if this is the right way to do it but I duplicated the map and applied the theme there (I now have two maps - Summer and Winter). Then I replaced the map in the Mission Editor with the Winter version and ended up with this (river flowing, running gear "in" the snow): Next time the Soviets attack in Summer.
  12. Hmm, not so good. Using "Realism_Winter_(snow-heavy).thm" I get this (note river still running, vehicle running gear is "on" the snow): Using "Suomussalmi Winter Frozen Light Snow.thm" I get this (note river covered in snow, vehicle running gear is "in" the snow): This is achieved by changing theme in the Mission Editor, should I be applying it to the Map Editor instead? Guess its just trial and error.
  13. Skin Request (dejawolf...)

    Um so why the roundel on the glacis plate? Is this for some other "game" (WoT, WT,...)?
  14. Thanks! That looks close enough for government work. I'll apply it and run some tests. Thanks again - in advance.
  15. Thanks for the heads up - I've given up on the Finnish options as they freeze the rivers and make them passable. I was hoping for a brief description for each one of these multitude of themes but I guess they are based on people doing just what Zero suggested and not being able to include that description in the name.
  16. Thanks, but I don't have the patience / time to go through a thousand iterations. Also I don't think any of those variables change the depth of the snow on the ground - that is the Truck tyre still sits "on" the ground instead of "in" the snow. At least in the Finnish ones, the wheels sink in, but then there are other issues.
  17. Ad-hoc/Impromptu SB sessions

    0400 here (1800 GMT). Myself and CavGunner in TS. I'll give it 20mins and then go back to bed.
  18. Ad-hoc/Impromptu SB sessions

    OK. Not sure if Nike is back from his Summer Palace amognst the midges, but I'll be there and can host a session.
  19. Ad-hoc/Impromptu SB sessions

    Am I getting up early tomorrow for 1800 GMT start time?

  23. ETA on terrain patch?

    The issue there is that not everything in the military version makes it into the commercial one. Similarly, depending on contracts, not everything in the Australian one is in the (insert other country name here) one. There were some pictures in the ITEC '18 post - search is your friend.
  24. I don't need to get up for it as it starts at 7:00pm for me. Happy to do it for a 1:1 as I think you were wanting a session on scenario design and that maybe better as a targeted Q & A session.

    FYI, The above code does not work for Australia at least. Perhaps US only?
