    Tutorial Questions

    Post by chrisp on Mon Feb 27, 2017 4:31 pm



    Hey, when I'm running the Driver tutorial, are the other crew positions blocked? No matter how many times I hit the F3 key, I can't get the commander's position.

    Also, I frequently "stall" the Matilda. I have gas, but no rpms and nothing moves.

    What's wit dat?

    Also, I simply can't play the game on my 1920:1080 display. The game menu is way to big. I can't even get to the quit button -- I have to use task manager to close the game.

    I have the v09_fix_widscreen_v1.04_SepUpd_2015 fix installed, but it doesn't help.

    Any ideas?

    It is only in tank tutorial. You can't change the driver position.

    This is desktop resolution. Setup the same in the game and uncheck "scaling" in the videodrivers.

    Yup.

    "Edit--Yes there is! Right click the SFK42 shortcut, then properties, click the compatibility tab, then check 'disable display scaling on high DPI settings"

    Works for me! Thanks.

    I also figured out that the Left and Right arrow keys don't work (don't turn the tank) unless you disable the joystick in the options.

    And I figured out that I was stalling the Matilda for exactly the same reason I used to stall my old Volkswagen -- you have to shift up and down in the tank, just as you do in a car. If you try and climb the hill in 3rd gear, you'll stall. This is pretty awesome in a tank simulation.

    And when I stall, I have to put on the brake, shift to neutral, and hit the starter a number of times until the engine kicks in. Wow. Just the old VW.

    Some old games doesn't work properly, if any usb device plugged in.

    When u'll master Matilda then drive the other tanks will be a peace of cake Smile
    Movement in uphill is a very tricky. U've to press break "Q", press full gas at 1st gear, then release "Q" and move half a meter. Then once again full gas, release "Q" and another half meter overcame Smile
