Re: Adding Ground Units

Ok, so been playing around with it.. For some reason my units will not try and re-take back what objectives are controlled by the enemy. I even tried adding a massive amount of ground units. While tracking them in JSTARs, and seem as though they seem to back up and regroup and go into defensive mode...

Re: Adding Ground Units

Ok, this is starting to get on my nerves.. I installed AF to install your 128 Korean theater. Now where are these TCL files? I even did a search in my entire harddrive for all *.TCL files and only show what currently is in my Tacedit folder?? :?

Like always I keep getting "NO falcon4 found" error when trying to run install your campaigns? Are these just for AF or what? Can you not just sent me the TCL for adding ground units instead of me installing a campaign? :D

Yes I believe there is. SnakeMan sent me that. However, I chose to do them manually as I wanted to get rid of the duplicate bridge names. So instead I named them with a roman numeral suffix to eliminate duplicate names.

It was a long process but I managed to do it all in about 8 hours. :(

If you are flying OF or RV or not AF versions, you can always hi-jack BARCAPs. Or other flights for that matter. Usually I asses in Intel and will usually hi-jack a flight and change the tasks to take out an objective.
