Superweapon after battlelab destroyed???

06 July 2007 - 09:58 AM

I just played a game against a Soviet player... Anyway I sent my black eagles to destroy his battlelab, which they did. like 10 seconds later he builds an Iron Curtain. I figured once I destroy the battle lab he cannot build the curtain anymore even if it was already done?? Is it a cheat or am I missing something?

Jets = noob??

26 June 2007 - 06:46 PM

Lately i've been accused of using a "Noob" strategy when I used Jets (I play Korea usually) to destroy the opponent's base. It's more than one person who called me a noob when i used jets (though could be same person with different ids). I generally use jets against soviets to destroy their battle lab to prevent them from building a black curtain.

So anyway I was wondering- Is it really considered a "Noobish" strategy to use jets? If so, why? or were they just whining because they were losing?

Help with Yuri's Revenge QM Resolution problem

14 June 2007 - 05:06 AM

I have a weird and annoying problem related to game resolution when playing quickmatches in Yuri's Revenge.

I like to play on high resolution (1280x1024) so in the main menu I type "HIRES" and set the resolution to that setting.

I go to quickmatch:

If it finds a match immediately, it proceeds to the game in the high resolution- no problem here.

If I have to wait even one second before it finds a match, after it finds a match it does not go to the match but rather takes me to a screen saying "This game is limited to a 640x480 resolution... would you like to switch now?" I click on cancel since I such a low resolution is unplayable for me. If I go to the main menu and the option to look in the resolution setting, the setting is now blank. I then have no choice but to exit the game, come back in and hope quickmatch finds a match immediately.

Anyone encounter this problem or have any idea how to fix it???

thanks

Stupid mistakes you do

03 June 2007 - 11:52 AM

Hey what are some stupid mistakes you do during the game, ones that make you want to bang your head against the wall?

Here are some of mine (And these happened to me more than once):

- double clicking while chronoshifting and ending up teleporting my force 1 foot to the left

- going to sell mode to sell an ore refiny but accidentally clicking on the mouse as it passes above the Construction yard...

- This is a stupid one which happened to me just now: I was going to assign a hot key to each of my 4 black eagles by clicking on each black eagle and then clicking ctrl1-4 but i clicked too fast and out of order and ended up commanding each black eagle to force fire on the next black eagle (lost 3 black eagles and did severe damage to my AFC)

- Carefully plot a strategic route for my eagles using waypoints to go around the enemie's base (with heavy Anti-air) to cleverly maneuver avoiding the thick AA and destroy some tech on the other side... but forgetting to plot the way back and seeing all but one of my 12 eagles fall passing right through the enemy AA as they are flying in a straight line back to my base

- In the middle of a BF battle, I have all my battlefortreses selected... one of them gets destroyed and I intend to select the GGIs from the destroyed BF to deploy them... But I hit D too fast and end up UNDEPLOYING all of my BFs in the middle of combat and watch in agony as all infantry exits the BFs and gets slaughtered... :blink:

Anybody had any of the above happen to them? or other ones?

problem with game resolution

03 June 2007 - 10:48 AM

I have this annoying problem with the game resolution in Yuri's Revenge

When I start the game I type in 'HIRES' in the main menu and set resolution to 1280x1024 (until here everything seems fine)

Then when I go quickmatch, around 20% of the time it lets me play in that high resolution. But around 80% of the time after finding a match it will tell me "This game is limited to 640x400 resolution.. would you like to switch now?" I dont since I cant play at such low resolution. When I go back to check the options in the main menu the resolution field is blank and the high resolution is gone. If I type "HIRES" again the cycle starts over.

I tried turning off the "Match opponent's resolution" option but didnt do any good. Plus I do not think it has to do with the other player since against the same player sometimes it will join with the high resolution and other times it will ask me to change. I think it has something to do with the resolution field going blank all the time.

Any ideas whats going on :confused1:
