  1. I'll start it off with a bang! Long range BMP smack down, courtesy of Germany and the milan. Mord.
  2. Just loaded up the scenario again after having shut down CM well before my last post and it only took 78 seconds this time. Mord.
  3. Besides the special forces, right? I thought it was mentioned before but can't remember. Mord.
  4. Well, I just loaded Der Ring der 5. Panzerdivison cold and it took 112 seconds to get to the scenario briefing. I processed one turn moving half the vehicles and that took about just over 20 secs. I processed a second turn giving almost all the vehicles move orders and it took 30 seconds to blue bar it. Here's a vid, you can judge how smooth it looks. Here's a quick vid of the first turn. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZURSiOdstIw Mord.

    Apparently. They might have changed it because SF has unique trees that are much smaller than in the other games. In the other games you only get trunks without branches; near, then all, then no trees. Mord.

    You cycle through settings for trees. First cycle is no leaves, then no trees. Mord.

    No. Just in the text on the left side of the screen.. Mord.
  8. I thought about it, but the load time on CM doesn't bother me much. After the first boot, it's incredibly quick if I log out and then back in. Scenarios are fine unless they are huge but I think I tested the Nijmegan map and got it going in about 2 minutes. Do you have Shogun II? That thing takes forever no matter what! Mord.
  9. I'm running a i7 7700K MSI Z270 GAMING M7 (MS-7A57) (U3E1) Motherboard MSI 8MB 1080 Gaming X graphics card 32GB DDR4 3000mhz of Corsair Dominator Platinum RAM 250GB Samsung Evo SSD and two Seagate 2TB Firecuda hybrid hard drives EVGA Supernova 1000 watt power supply With a Viotek 32" 1080p, 144mhz monitor along with a couple other odds and ends. Win 10 Home Edition With all that said, I don't have CM on the SSD, I only use it for Win10. I have one 2TB Firecuda setup for gaming and one for other media. Nothing I dl goes onto my SSD, all programs and such are divided onto the hybrid HDs by type. With CM, a cold boot can take upwards of 20+ seconds depending on how many mods I have installed. However afterwards, if I log off and then log back on it is super quick, and will stay that way until I reboot the computer. The games themselves run ok. Satisfactory. Better than my old AMD rig from 2015. My frame rates, on max settings, can run anywhere between 15 to 30+ depending on the situation. However I don't notice much difference in them. The two games I built the rig for, CM and Total War, are the two friggin' game series I get the least performance boost for. LOL Typical. All I can say is that my specs are close to what you listed and it's about as good as CM is ever gonna get until it's overhauled for today's computers or completely rewritten. I wouldn't go with an AMD anything for CM and I was a hardcore AMD user for 20+ years until I got my first Intel, this rig. Mord.

    CMSF2 Demos Released!

    Yeah, I'd say 11 years is enough lurking! Well, I hope you decide to stay on the participation side of things. It's good to get new people on the board to keep it fresh. We've got a lot of active and retired military guys here so you have that in common too. Be careful on patrol/duty and have fun with the game when you get the time to play. Mord.
  11. Carnage and death, the twin reapers of the battlefield, have feasted well this day. As comrades rush to fill the gaps left by the dead and dying... another finds he has had his fill and flees the banquet of misery and destruction. Mord.

    The doodads will work but you have to rename some of them, like brush. Mord.
  13. If somehow the rights to CMA could be crowd funded and bought would BFC consider updating it? Yeah, it's a long shot. But what would Snowball care. They abandoned the title in less then 6 months after it was released. Mord.

    CMSF2 Demos Released!

    That's weird. I completely missed the refresh monkey part! I am slipping in my old age. Pretty soon I'll be just like Emrys, eating tapioca and screaming at the mailman because they raised the price of stamps again.. Mord.

    Rule of thumb: If it works in BS, RT, FI, FB, or BN it's gonna work in SF2. If it's a uniform, vehicle, or face texture it won't work or won't work correctly because all the models have been changed Mord.

    CMSF2 Demos Released!

    Welcome. Nice to have you! Is this your first title? Mord.
  17. No problem. Just confused me for a second. Yeah, nothing but mods will work with the demo. And even with those you will only be able to use things that are actually in the demo (not all textures will be represented). Anything to do with models like vehicles, uniforms and faces won't work either unless they are reworked to fit the new meshes. Mord.
  18. Huh? The only thing I mentioned was mods and I figured those out. SF1 scenarios aren't gonna work with the demo. You need to wait for the full game to be released. Mord.
  19. Expand your horizons. Become one with us. Download the demo and try some modern. Embrace the joy. I like all the titles so I win on every release. Mord.
  20. IED blowing up the bridge. Mord.
  21. It can happen during a "quick" order. The first time I ever saw it was also my very first holy crap moment in the BN demo. It was just like what you experienced but the guy stopped mid stride and fired a rifle grenade into a farm house, killing two German soldiers that popped up, then followed his squad to complete the move. Mord.
  22. Hit decals! I love the immersion and atmosphere they bring to the game. Your imagination can really run away with you when you are examining the aftermath of a horrendous hit, whether crewmen make it out or not. I really enjoy scouring that battlefield and conducting forensic autopsies during and after a battle. My single most favorite graphics edition since BN was released. Mord.
  23. Another unfortunate victim of the Wiesel. Not a single crewman bailed from the tinfoil coffin. A forensic battlefield examination of the 20mm penetrations. Any wonder why there were no survivors? Mord.
  24. The smoldering carcass of a dead MBT. The kill penetration just below the the turret ring. Man, I love hit decals! Mord.
