  1. I already tried a new account but still couldn't get into Discord, I might try again sometime but at the moment I'm quite happy to post my tutorials for AA3 and other games in forums where most people hang, for example my tutorials at Bohemia are very popular, and my WW2 photo galleries at Mission4Today forum have had 8 million views so far..:)
  2. Thanks mate, I've tried to join Discord in the past but couldn't get in, it gave me some shite about "Username or password or email not recognised". I tried a few more times with different passwords etc, but it still wouldn't let me in so I thought "bollox to it" and gave up on it. Anyway I hear it's just a chatroom anyway and not a proper forum like C4G. PS- I used to post tutorial stuff here at C4G but then everybody buggered off to Discord so I don't bother any more..:)
  3. This seems to be it- 76561198009964223
  4. PS- I think my Steam user ID is 0:1:24849247
  5. What email did you use to donate?:- I bought a 30 day VIP slot. Which email are we supposed to use? Mine are pooroldspike@aol.com and mickplym@aol.com What is your UID(Steam ID)?: - I don't know how to find out Approximately when did you donate?: - 3 days ago What Server did you donate for?:- EU#1 1944 What's your Paypal Transaction ID for this donation:- OCS79988U4915383M
  6. And if any would-be gunners are reading this and want to avoid getting booted out of my tanks too, WATCH YOUR FRONT at all times, because I point our tank at the enemy, so don't keep swinging the gun around like a crackhead. Also play in 3rd-person at all times because you can't see a thing in 1st-person..:)
  7. Try assigning a different key for chat. PS- A lot of people talk too much in KOTH anyway, I'm constantly having to tell my tank gunners to shut their traps and watch their fronts, especially if they keep trying to tell me what to do..:) I say to them on the 1944 server- "I'm level 113 and know what I'm doing, trust me". In fact only yesterday my T-34 gunner kept yapping so I said "Do you wanna walk?" and kicked him out before waiting for a reply..:)
  8. Any chance you could fly us to Vegas?
  9. I'll keep playing 1944 EU#1 to see how it goes, and if I still like it in a week or two I'll donate 100 dollars. At the moment I think planes are too powerful because they can kill tanks and vehicles too easily, and are spoiling the game. Suggestion- make combat planes harder to buy, for example "60 players needed", and also limit planes to a maximum of 2 planes per team.
  10. Hey congratulations to C4G for making the 1944 server 3rd-person again, and I think tanks are easier to get too, so I've just bought a VIP slot..:) Everybody deserted it when it was 1st-person, but hopefully they'll start coming back when the good news gets around.
  11. Yes, I agree, there's our discussion about it at Steam so it's good that we should also give the KOTH Big Bosses feedback here too for good measure. I've been giving them feedback on all sorts of ways to improve KOTH..:)
  12. Thanks, if you're already making enough money and you're happy, you don't need any cash or advice or ideas from me..:) Incidentally the 1944 server has been empty for the past week or two and I don't know why unless it's because you made it HC 1st person only which a lot of people including me don't like. It used to attract about 50 players at peak times when it was 3rd person.
  13. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- At the moment 1944 is an infantry-fest show, so making tanks easier to get would improve the balance. Remember, tanks were invented to make war more fun, and it's FUN to knock out tanks with bazookas, schrecks and PIATS..:) As for a 1st person / 3rd person mix, I tried it in 1944 but I don't like it, I only like 3rd-person servers, so regretfully I've now abandoned 1944. Incidentally I'm a 71-year-old wargame veteran, game developer / playtester, forum moderator, and I write tutorials for various wargames. I also donate loads of cash to sites which I like, for example yesterday I donated 100 dollars to the "Little-known old airfields" site. Hopefully in the future KOTH 1944 will have more tanks and go back to 3rd-person, and when that happens I'll be happy to donate 100 bucks to C4G..:)
  14. What does that mean? Incidentally I've now abandoned the 1944 server because the 3rd person view has been disabled, I hate 1st person.
  15. Hi, I buy a VIP slot sometimes but don't donate much because I'm a WW2 tank fan, and tanks are hard to get in KOTH, so I sulk and pout a lot. But if Sa-Matra (or whoever else runs the show) makes the tanks much easier to get in the 1944 server, I'd be happy to donate large sums of money towards the server cost to keep it running..:)
