Keeping these which are both maxed out.
M7 = Money maker + it's a good one for platooning with lower tier tanks.
M4A3E8 Sherman = w/105 mm SPH M4L23 it' fun. Getting better at running the big gun.

So I got up to buying a tier 4 german tank... Kindof silly. I'm enjoying playing the tier 2 Pz35 much more. Its much more arcade-like level of play. Artillery is boring, and the German tanks with the 20mm cannon is a pain.
The anti-tank guns are fun, but as soon as you get a tier 2 anti-tank gun, you're up against tier 4 tanks... Meh.

I sold my Pz38t lastnight. I hate the crap tank. Droped to my PZ35t crew over 70% had 4, 5 kill games lastnight running with a friend me getting coin and him getting his T2 tank. I'm 4000 away from getting the Pz38na tank. I sure hope it doesn't suck as bad and the 38t did.

I picked up a PzII Aust, but haven't fully fitted it out yet. It can get a 5cm gun, has good speed and decent armor. Should be fun.

Sometimes it's difficult with the time to impact shooting completely across the map....lol

That's when you hope they hold still long enough for the shot to get there.....

I will say it's really hard to coordinate with other ADV'ers without voice chat. Using the Ventrilo server makes all the difference in the world. Hopefully tonight I'll move up my arty from the SU-5 to SU-8, and hopefully it won't suck.

Once in a platoon, you can change any vehicle - just click the "ready" button when you're ready to fight. Leaving the platoon means you don't want to partner up any more.

No worries, though, I'm just grinding away tonight.

If you guys can download Ventrilo, there's a channel just for us ADV WOT'ers... thanks to the owner, for giving us bandwidth.

SU-8 achieved, and all I can say is "range to target". I can touch most of the map from the edge. Woot.

I found vent on my computer (I had down loaded and used it once) but I can't tell how to make it work. I think part of it has been deleted.

How do I know if I have 32 bit or 64 bit Windows? My System Properties doesn't tell me.

I'm running XP Pro if that's any help.

Pretty sure XP Pro is 32 bit.

I'd just uninstall/reinstall ventrilo, Rafiki and Skidmarx both sent me the info... ask them for it, and you should be able to hook up pretty easy. Hardest part for me was figuring out how to get my mic VOX activated, rather than pushing a hotkey, which the game doesn't really like to accomodate.

Not necessarily.....IIRC, it came in 64 bit as well. Jeff, how much memory is in the machine (per the system properties page)? If it's over 3GB, you're running 64 bit.

easy way, go to C drive, look at the root. If you have a "program files" and a "program files(x86)" you have a 64 bit OS... that said, XP 64 didnt work that well and is even less common than a version of said program that works well... so you prolly runnin 32 bit
