Long Night of Tanks 2014 (111800Zoct14)

Recommended Posts

Great!

So are these for the nice shiny new vehicles I'll get, or for the scratched, muddy, scorched, dented, destroyed ones I'm passing on to you? ;)

Just a heads up for this up coming event :)

Tested my laptop and port forwarding and everything works. I also received my new 2TB HD and will installed it today and test it.

Just waiting for more information on the first mission.

Quick question, how much of a break will there be between each mission? I would assume at least thirty minutes in-between each mission.

Well for the last few its been closer to 15 than 30, but that's because we have already received orders, etc.

Unsure as to timings in the new format.

But I intend to be there at H-30 (0430 local) just in case we can get a briefing.

Hi John,

there will be breaks between the missions, because the company commanders have do develop a plan. During this time, you can make new Long Island Ice Tea`s or go for a beer.

cheers

Fairly good chance that I'll make at least one of the three missions. So...uhhh...can someone refresh what passes for my memory as to just how I open and use the skinpack?? :Crash::?:

Danke!

Just for you, Tango, the abbreviated version:

1. Download

2. Double click to open in Stuffit, Win Zip, or whatever you use.

3. Copy the files from within the zipped archive to respective positions on on your machine.

e.g.:

\camo\woodland\de\GE_equipZUKUNFT.dds

goes into

C:\Users\mark [insert your name here]\Documents\eSim Games\Steel Beasts\mods\textures\camo\woodland\de\

Then do the same with the rest of the Infantry and Vehicle skins.

I think I found a small issue with the texture pack: There is a texture for the Leopard 1A5-DK in the texture pack, but it's the old (pre 2.640) texture that's not used any more. Other than that, it looks great.

I´m sorry, but it´s still used to build the exterior hull texture for the Leo1A5GE.

Therefore it´s in the pack.

Otherwise you would wonder about a German turret roof and a Danish hull

After not being able to make it, then probably making one mission, there is an outside chance for me of making all three. Accordingly, you can put me in as Corps Reserve for now, and I'll go wherever needed. :men_ani:

Well, I was rather unexpectedly moved to a new base two days ago, and the Internet connection here is very poor. I am hoping/expecting I will move to a better place tonight in time for LNoT! Unfortunately, if I have to stay where I am, I will not be able to attend, as my ping times will be between 700-900ms, which I don't think will be acceptable in the 3D environment.

I"m in Afghanistan. The base I was at until two days ago has workable Internet, this one is crap. As far as going off-base....let's just say that's unauthorized. I expect to leave this base today, but I may not be back at my home base until tomorrow, since I may be at a transient station overnight tonight. The Internet there may be better (crosses fingers) but hopefully I'll get back to my regular spot before LNoT starts. But as is typical with these sorts of operations, nobody really knows what's going on (or they do and aren't telling!).

A16...lnot will use the 3.011 version. From my experience with that type of internet connection, portforwarding is a problem. Hopefully hamachi can help...it'll still be a rough ride

I have a VPN set up with port forwarding and have been successfully playing 3.011 with DoW. Ping times are not great (roughly 350ms) but have been quite workable.

Just found out I won't make it back to my normal base tonight, but I also won't be where I am now...I'll be at a transient spot overnight. Not sure what the Internet status is from there, so we'll just have to see.
