  1. It never too later for praise where praise is really due. I don't know if Variable13 or the crew who helped him put The Great Patriotic War together are still around here, but to all you good folk, my thanks to you all for your fine efforts where ever you are. TGPW is a terrific GR mod. I read all the superlative words from past Ghosts who began playing it nearly twenty years ago when it was first released and I now share that enthusiasm they expressed, which was the reason I loaded it up on the weekend. A very challenging version of the original game. Love the limits of the WWII weapons, the sense of battle, the maps, great stuff. After being spoilt with all the modern weaponry and the powerful sniper rifles of the modern scenarios, I am thoroughly enjoying the greater challenge and despite getting my tactical ###### handed to me, for my modern carelessness, lol...Great game, great mod. Worth getting if you can.
  2. I have come back to GR after a long time away from the game. I remember having the greatest fun with just the basics of the game and I didn't have much free time to get into the mods and there's so many of them. My thanks to all the folks who put them together over the years. I have much to entertain myself in my dotage, I have the GR, DS, IT loaded up to v. (v.1.4 wont load, but that's another problem for another day. The older pre 1.4 mods work fine and I just want to get back into the game, rather than fiddle and tweak, I'm toooo old to be wasting time for that instead of having fun.) I have selected AV_Apollo's 2004 Free Russia Campaign and in the first mission I have dealt with all the tangos that wont surrender but I've been stuck now for a few weeks with the six or seven that do. You cannot progress to the next mission until you get the info these guys are suppose to have. I have done everything to initiate an interrogation but nothing I've tried has worked. I get pretty much like a dog with a bone with most things I attempt and I really want to get further along with freeing Russia before Putin gets there, so if anyone can recall playing this old campaign and can tell me how to get these guys to spill the beans on whatever intelligence they're supposed to have, I'd greatly appreciate a heads up on it. Thanks in advance.
  3. G'day Wombat. Good memory mate. The M9 did the trick. There was no other way. Those digital Ruskies are pretty tough and they just wouldn't talk otherwise. I'm back on the road again to free Russia. Spasibo comrade.
  4. I think you might be right Wombat. It probably seems silly but I was reluctant to do that for obvious reasons, unarmed prisoners and legal issues pertaining to war crimes, however I confess in my frustration I did attempt to wound one of them and killed him instead. I didn't have a pistol on hand. The M4 proved a tad too powerful. 😲! Right well, M9 it is. I'll let you know the outcome.
