Hi guys, Just setting up my shinny new pc with Windows 7 operating system. Transfered all my blitzkrieg files over. Only to discover i cant play blitzkrieg with this operating system? Help! (i assume its a common problem thats been over come)
A tip, do not install your bk in the program files folder to avoid problems with mods and skins packs. I'm using windows 7 and the only problems I have is when I try to make screenshots and work with mods.
Windows 7 is definitely an improvement over Vista. I have both Blitzkrieg and Rolling Thunder located in the root directory - not under Program Files where the installer wants to put them - and they both run okay.
However, I still can't get either of the MapEds to work. I've tried as they come from the install and with the updated MapEd, and they just don't even start running.
It's a good thing I still have an older computer running under Windows XP. Otherwise you wouldn't see all the stuff I've put out lately.
Louis, you make me nervous... I haven't tried opening the Map Editors yet (no time). I'm assuming you have the 64bit as well?
Win7 is really pretty cool, and my 64 bit is much faster and nicer than Vista. However, the 64-bit part can be a b*tch too, some of my programs won't work and, being freeware versions, I'm not raising my hopes up on getting them to work. I sure do hope the Editors will work though. Can't live without 'em. ;D
Quite right SJ. After my initial problems getting the mapeditor ton run with windoze 7, I moved both BK and RT to a new folder (games) and everything runs smoothly, even entering the game from the mapeditor.
Like SJ, i instal BK, RT on an other partition ......No Pb Ocelo "the 64-bit part can be a b*tch too, some of my programs won't work" somtime you have solve some compatibility problem,. Inside the property, select the compabibility onglet and choose "run like XP" or "run like Vista"....
But i run the mapeditor without Pb..... So be assured
I have a full install of RT in both the C and D partitions, both of them in the root directory of the partition. They both work fine as games. Neither instance of MapEd will work, either as delivered from the install, or with the modified MapEd .exe file. The Starforce splash screen comes up, disappears, and then nothing.
Every time I boot my computer in the morning, I still get a message that Starforce is incompatible with Windows 7.
The only way I could get RT to run with Windows 7 was with a no-CD copy of the game.exe. Since there isn't one for the MapEd, it won't run.
However, vanilla Blitzkrieg does not have Starforce, and I still need the No-CD version for it to run, and its MapEd won't run either. If it would run, I could transfer all the extra RT files over to it and be able to produce BK and RT missions on it.

vojta: Hi guys, is there any possible way to modify the units size?

vojta: To change the size of Pzkpfw II for example and make it a bit bigger

Squire James: Not without editing the 3d model itself. Why would you want to make it larger though? BK has a few out of scale units (the M3 Grant being the worst offender) but the PzKpfw II is okay

vojta: i only wanted to know if there is any easy way to do it, because I have seen these two sizes of M3 Grant before
