  1. Anyone tried CMx2 on this type of Laptop platform? 2.0GHz AMD Ryzen 5 2500U quad core AMD Radeon Vega 8 Graphics I'm guessing the processor is o.k. but worried if the Vega 8 graphics drivers are compatible with open GL. And if compatible is the performance o.k. cheers,

    Play in XP?

    I'm pretty sure you need WinXP with Service Pack 3 (sp3) to play the v4.0 of Red thunder. I tried installing upgrading to v4.0 on an old WinXP with Service Pack 2 (sp2) and it didn't work.

    Work with XP

    You definitely need Win Xp sp3 though

    Some Italian thoughts

    Great post - makes me want to try playing as the italians again
  5. Hi, Playing a PBEM game I noticed this strange occurrence with my opponents Stuart tank firing a canister shell into the air. Barrel elevation was maximum even though potential targets were lower than the barrel elevation and cannister round goes vertical. Anyway here is a link to the picture (the canister round is at the top of the screen - not where barrel is pointing) https://www.dropbox.com/s/tkmpd3m8a0ujdi8/strange stuart tank bug firing.png?dl=0 P.S I was just kidding about the anti-air - no airplanes were shot down

    4.0 bug reporting

    yeah not too sure... it may have been for a Vickers MG platoon.

    4.0 bug reporting

    Small bug maybe? I haven't checked what it was like before in engine 3.0 but I noticed a NZ 2IC squad had a machine gun symbol (of course it did not actually have a bren or vickers gun)
  8. Hi, I'm at work at the moment but I am keen to play a small probe. I can setup a shared folder in dropbox and setup a small/tiny map probe with me on attack. Let me know your dropbox name etc.  Also any special settings/requirements you have for the battle. I would prefer infantry only with maybe some halftracks, armored cars.

      Whatever you like is fine. 

      You'll need my email to share the folder - 


      When you set it up can you make sure both sides are set for map preview allowed. Might help us both plan our forces. Other than that, anything you like. Infantry, halftracks and armored cars sounds fine.

      Hi Dave,

      Great I will setup something when I get home from work (~8hrs). I've just started another PBEM battle as the british so I might choose to be the germans in this one, I'll set you up as the americans unless you have a different preference.  Like I said before I'm keen to try a small infantry only battle.  I'll make it a probe into a village with me as the attacker. I will make sure map preview is on.

      That's fine for me.

    Any news about CMFI 4.0 release

    Just played a small/tiny quick battle against the AI using engine 4.0. Fun battle and to my eye CMFI looks the best of the CM series. Not sure if it is the colours or the small map or time of day but everything looked super sharp and smooth. My only (tiny) complaint is when I Iet the computer auto pick the german forces (infantry only) they still ended up with an anti tank gun force (e.g approx 2x 88mm guns 4 x 75mm guns 2x infantry guns etc. Still as I said it was a fun battle :). However it is probably about time I played a human. I'm very inexperienced PBEM player but if anyone whats to play a small infantry Quick battle Probe or meeting engagement let me know.

    AI vs AI

    I like that idea

    AI vs AI

    I'm not sure what 'bake a whole fight' means (I don't have CM:SF) but you are correct about CMx2 CMBN - you can not have the AI fight the AI. It would be nice to create to AI scripts/plans and then watch the 'AI' fight it out
  13. Thanks for confirming that Macisle
  14. Hi Macisle, Out of interest do you know if you can get the AI plan to do a smoke mission after the 1st turn in version 4.0? I could not get this to work in earlier versions.
