To Thudo: i have seen 1.8 at the top left, i double clicked the winter assault icon, but the mod was runnin b/c it was highlighted in the game manager. and i was playin on into the breach, the 4 player version, not those other made into the breach versions okay, if any1 else is bored and wants to help me out. play into the breach as orks and play against IG. put the game conditions as annahilate, qs, and high resource. then choose fixed locations and put IG and spot #3 and close all others, so this is a 1v1 battle at opposite ends of the map. i played doing this twice with IG on insane, and it was still easy as pie. i would like it if som1 would play, and/or get a second opinion on how easy the computer is. b/c all i got faced up against in about 6-10 min(rough estimate) into the game, was a command squad, and maybe 3-5 guardsmen squads and infantry commands(of course). also some generators and a mechanized command located near their base, and one near a listening post. from wat i gathered, they are hardly spawnin any units, just goin out and cappin points, and building buildings. if some1 does play this scenario i have described, plz tell me how difficult it was for u, i would also advise a rush strategy cause i attacked in about 6-8 minutes or so, i didnt wait along time cause i figured insane computer would be prepared for anything
Dedshaw: right i tried to investigate your problem but.....
Thudo: ...but the mod keeps crashing, wtf, it loads fine and the game starts and its okay for about one minute something then it crashes right to the desktop the warning and error logs tell me nothing -help
Quick side note: does anyone know how to get hold of /intouch with the necron mod team
I'll investigate the crashing and the AI not putting up a better fight. Still.. the v1.8 likes to tech a little more so what yer experiencing makes sense. However, we've had reports of people getting trounched by the AI on HARDER Skill. So the map is "Into the Breach"? Are you sure you have no special options running like any hotkey configs? We have someone who has reinstalled the game four times even to different partitions and it still crashes after a minute. On v1.75 it works okay. Doesn't make sense.
yes it was on into the breach, but not just there either, the ai in general for IG is terrible, in the beggining anyway. i was playin orks, and i let them tech and then i attacked, holy crap i couldnt get through. their psykers were constantly cursin my tanks and bustin them. and their artillary was killin my orks too. but if i dont give them time its easy as pie. like i said in the begginign thier guardsmen stay at 4 ppl, they dont reinforce. and this is insane even. but if u hesitate ull regret it b/c they are hard to beat if they are givin a chance
I didn't make it!
The new 1.8 mod is not compatible with the previous versions of Winter Assault (1.4 and 1.41), at least while playing with ai, who are chaos or ig. It would crash after a minute or so because some of the abilities in patch 1.5 (such as machine curse) do not exist before this and crashes the game. So, whenever the ai creates the command squad it would crash, leaving a very unhelpful error message. Other than that, well done on the ai! :)
Yes.. it does say in my annoucement that the AI is 1.50 and up. We don't support older code - noone should. Its old! Technology doesn't flow from re-embracing old redundancies. Evolution is always welcome regardless if it is a little bad.
so ur saying that HARDER is like god like hard?
Nice work as always thud & co. Great job.
but one thing that i do have a problem with, is that my force commander will often times call down an orbital bombardment on top of my toops because one or two of the enemy have gotten into the middle of my army.
