PostForum: Close Combat Wacht am Rhein   Posted: Tue Nov 18, 2008 12:54 am   Subject: What are these coordinates, cm, px, what?
My guess would be those are x and y coordinates in pixels measured from the top left corner of a screen (location 0,0) followed by the width and height dimensions of the graphic measured in pixels.

If you get "INVALID RECTANGLE ERROR" when you try to view a map you could be dealing with a corrupt .ovm file. Did this happen when you tried to view the Wardin map?

Just merely stating what I have observed over the years and I would not consider a certain moderator's reply in this thread to be a friendly attitude. I'm just fed up with the BS and what it has done to the CC community as a whole.

Nothing else follows.
Over and out.

But the people who post such crap about others just pisses one off after awhile.


I totally agree.

Over the years I have watched this site and have not posted much of anything largely because of the BS some moderators throw at those who do try to help others. This thread is a prime example of what I have observed over the past 4 years.

Let's not forget his contribution to tactical wargaming with WWII miniatures. I still have a set of these rules published by Guidon Games.
Quote:

Tractics is a set of rules for conducting World War II style combat with miniatures. Written by Mike Reese and Leon Tucker with contributions by Gary Gygax, the game was published by Guidon Games in 1971 and republished by TSR, Inc. in 1975. It came as a boxed set containing three booklets with illustrations by Don Lowry. It has the distinction of being the first published game to use a 20-sided die.[1] TSR printed about 5000 copies of the game and then let it go out of print in 1977.[2]

The name of the game recalls the popular Avalon Hill board wargame Tactics II (1958). Although WWII style combat was popular with board wargamers, few miniature wargamers were enacting WWII battles in the mid 1960s, in part because appropriate miniatures were scarce. In 1968 Reese and Tucker, two members of the LGTSA, began play-testing rules for tank combat that would eventually form the core of Tractics. Gygax contributed some rules on infantry, covered in the second booklet, and the third booklet would cover additional topics such as airstrikes.

The rules are for the dedicated wargaming enthusiast. The players must first acquire the miniatures and build the terrain. Reese and Tucker were interested in accurate simulation, and as a result the game provides data describing the rate of movement, thickness of armor, and range of fire for the makes of tank in service from 1940 to 1970. The game is consequently slower to conduct than a board wargame such as Tactics II. For miniature wargamers who felt that the amount of detail was excessive, Reese and Tucker recommended their earlier Fast Rules (1970).

Tractics is not a perfect information game and requires the use of a judge. A player does not initially know where his enemy is located, and pieces are placed in the playing area only when they come into open view or are detected by active observation. Tanks have a base 30% chance (i.e. must roll a 15 or higher on a 20-sided die) to hit a target. Modifiers apply depending upon factors such as how well the target is concealed.

Go to play game, then exit back to the main screen, then start up the scenario editor.

Or you could buy a copy of Cross of Iron and then you won't have to worry about that bug.

Don't know where you got the editor from but I suspect it was either missing files to begin with or it was corrupted during the dl or it didn't unzip properly.

I would try reinstalling it and if that doesn't work try another download.

If you are using BGEditV12 you should have a temp folder inside the BGEditV12 folder. Inside the temp folder should be 4 files:

AlsTeams.txt
BGroups.txt
FPools.txt
GETeams.txt

Do you have .NET installed? Here's the readme.txt. The link for .net is as old as the readme so don't be surprised if it doesn't work.

I'm only aware of two things that might cause this:

Not saving your painted images as an uncompressed 16 bit tga.

Using antialias while painting your mask images.

Yes.


Haven't used RtB for a long time but I'm pretty sure it will also do the trick.
