    Server crashes a host problem?

    Amigaman, I saw you guys on last night and tried to join at least 5 different times, and each time got the "lost connection to host" message. Last night was the first time that had happened to me while trying to get on your server.

    Server Browser Issue.

    Same here. Both 509th servers are up and running, you will be able to connect to them via direct connect and even play many rounds while in, but they do not show up in the server browser in any fashion, even if searched. Our dedicated servers run in the Windows environment, not Linux.
  3. Same for 509th servers as well. I am wondering if I may need to reset the firewall ports, as this did not occur until the latest updates. Grabbing at straws to try and find a solution.

    I am including all things tactical. I'm not negating anything. Of course you can use an uncooked nade tactically. You can also use cooked nades tactically as well. It depends on your style of play and game philosophy and strategy. If I am about to clear a room and I don't want to be caught in the middle of a reload on a garand, I would prefer a cooked nade over an uncooked nade. If I am clearing and controlling areas further away, an uncooked nades work tactically as well. Again, it depends on what you are doing, which tool works best.

    Yeah, we use nades for positioning on maps like that as well. As far as the "running to an area where you know there are some enemies with a cooked grenade in your hand and instakilling them" is just as you described it, a noobish move regardless of the style of play or game philosophy. Why would you do that when throwing works? Unless they are a trouble maker of some sort I suppose or a complete noob.

    Toxic community..

    Wax, I completely understand your frustration. Since COD2 until present day, I've always been a tactical crouch player. Never gonna change. When Alpha came out, I was stoked to play, but I knew I was up against the wall because I understand the background, the types of games and the POV the devs are coming from for this game. So, when I started playing Alpha, There were times that I was completely ridiculed for the way I played. You see, I don't care to know how to do the jump shooting and sprinting and all that. My group plays to win the objectives by taking the objectives, not by hunting down and killing all the players on the other team first. There are differences in game philosophy and how people play. In my opinion, there is room for all different types of game philosophy that can be applied to how someone plays this game. Some players understand where I am coming from, some don't. But, I have to disclose, It's been that way for the last 17 yrs and I didn't expect it to be much different this time either, so hang in there! Regarding the servers. Until the mod tools come out, a lot of dedicated servers, like ours, will be restricted to players that are affiliated in some way with the group that runs the server. That is the largest reason why they are locked. Without the tools, you can't do much to help control what goes on in your server, when it is open to the public. Right now, you can't even kick a player with out going through a cumbersome command line process. That is why I am advocating that you might search out some like minded groups and see what they have going on. The 509th sends out notifications to our members and friends regarding when and where we are playing. Others may as well. Once tools come out, I think you will see more dedicated servers populated on a regular basis, and open to public play, including competitive play in their own styles. I know right now it is frustrating, I just say to myself that good things don't usually come easy.

    Wax, I completely understand where you are coming from. Over the years, in every game, there has always been a level of toxicity that exists, and it has always been a real turn off. I can only suggest that if you like the game, but don't like the toxicity you find on the general public servers, you might consider the alternative. The alternative is to play on "family friendly" servers that are managed, sponsored and hosted by groups like ours. On our servers, members manage the "toxicity". Bad language, poor sportsmanship and all the other general bull that accompanies toxicity is managed right out of the server. Sure, we get the occasional A-hole that jumps in, but they aren't around long, because we remove them in an expedient yet diplomatic fashion, before they become a major problem. It's not just the 509th, there are many groups which provide servers that promote a more "positive" environment. Those groups may also have different "in-game rules" that are different from the 509th and are not tactical crouch. Everyone has their own preference. The point is, there are like minded people out there with available servers, that try very hard to maintain a "family friendly" environment as much as possible. Groups like us want to provide an enjoyable gaming experience for everyone, including the family. So, if you like the game, but don't like the toxicity you find in the general populace of Battalion 1944 servers, there are alternatives out there that try hard to maintain a fun, competitive and enjoyable experience without the toxicity. I am only suggesting, if you haven't already, to consider this option before giving up on Battalion 1944.

    Ready Up Setting

    Thank you Cyruz.

    Ready Up Setting

    Skip doesn't really accomplish what I am looking for. Similar to Simo, I am looking for the team select screen to be the first thing that pops up when you join a server. 1. Join Server - with no count down or waiting once in, right into the select team screen. 2. Select team 3. Select weapons - then either "ready up" or just count down to start match. 4. Play

    I see. Well, in over 18 years, I've never heard anyone proclaim that learning how to properly cook nades and use them that way is less skillful/effective than not. Secondly, just because a nade is cookable doesn't mean you have to use it that way, does it? So why is it you care so much that nades be uncookable if personally, you aren't going to cook them to use them anyway?

    Tactical TDM Server. Rifles only

    yeah, I just wanted to create a server for just tactical crouch players to go play, keeping the server insulated from the general chaos via password.

    Date Required

    yeah, I would like to see something more concrete regarding a date. Waiting for mod tools feels like I'm watching grass grow.

    Ready Up Setting

    Was wondering if it would be possible to have the "Select Allies, Axis or AutoAssign" screen pop up right after you hit "F1" to "Ready Up" instead of having to hit another key in the process to auto assign?
