  1. No problems adjusting to modern combat here. My problem is adjusting to the fact that "CMSF is NOT CMBO". Boy, ain't that the truth!
  2. von Nev, Wow! Less than 10 CMSF games for every 500 CM1 games at The Blitz?! That is a good indicator of just how much of a disaster CMSF has been....so far.
  3. Hello Abbott, thanks for the welcome. As Thewood stated, it's been three months since release. Maybe in about three MORE months they'll get this thing worked out.
  4. I still want CMSF. Did they say when the release version will be ready? I'm tired of the beta.
  5. It's kinda sad to read so many negative posts from the lower member numbers. Sigh....the glory days are gone. I'd guess the percentage of CMSF owners that will buy the next offering will be under 25%. I certainly won't. Treeburst155 out.
  6. Greetings Grog Dorosh! Beauty queen? Ah yes, what was her name?? I can't remember now. I wonder if she still has an active account?? What was her name? I could make a really bad terrain mod for CMSF; but at this point it doesn't need one. It isn't playable enough to be worth the time....or I would certainly do it. Treeburst155 out.
  7. I'm deeply disappointed in the Penglican Congregation. By now its clergy should have moved the Mutha Beautiful back to the CMAK forum. Do you not comprehend the apostate nature of CMSF?? This is not Combat Mission. It's not even close. Repent! Forsake your CMSF sin! Move the Mutha Beautiful back to the Forum of the True CM! Bishop Treeburst, Doctor of CM Theology
  8. Well, they have plenty of beta testers now. This means the bugs will be found quickly. BFC will squash them as fast as they can. I'm sure of it. Until then, I'll be playing CMBB and CMAK. CM:SF will be done when it's done. Treeburst155 out.
  9. So I need to get the Demo before I know system requirements. This is because only I can determine what defines acceptable game performance for ME. This is an acceptable answer to the question, "What are the system requirements?" It's not exactly helpful; but it is an acceptable answer to the question asked. Let's try another question, an answer to which might be a bit more helpful. To the Beta Tester with the slowest machine: What are your machine specs? Do YOU consider the game to be playable on your machine; or will you be upgrading very soon? Treeburst155 out.
  10. I think that, if we are within several months of release, a fairly accurate run down of system requirements should be possible. I mean, they're playing the game right now, no? I'm REALLY curious as to how many old ladies I'll have to mug in order to pay for the required computer. Give me some specs, please! I don't want to mug any more old ladies than I have to. Thanks!!

  11. Oh, one more thing for Joachim: You can have a bad strike even when you see a spotting round. This is the SECOND spotting round you're seeing. The first doesn't fire due to LOS block, then LOS clears, the second round fires; but the strike is still off-target. The first spotting round MUST fire for a strike to be accurate. EDIT: The "Wicky Strike" proved that LOS to the target point does not have to be established at the time of targetting; but the spotter still has to have LOS at the time the first spotting round is DUE to be fired. No LOS at that exact moment (dust) means no first spotting round, means inaccurate strike unless you get REALLY lucky. Any second spotting round is of no significance....pure eye candy type stuff. Only the first spotting round is important. Another little tidbit I posted once....As soon as the first spotting round has fired, the spotter is free to break LOS permanently. The strike will continue until stopped...and it will be on-target. Of course, no green line adjustment would be possible. Treeburst155 out.

  12. First, let me say that my contribution to the original post here is limited to the section, "How Off-map Artillery REALLY Functions", and everything below that. Somebody else wrote the rest. Joachim, CMAK and CMBB work the same way. It's just that in CMAK there is dust, which causes more blocked LOS at the critical moment. Copied from my work above: How To Hit Your Target Every Time This section deals with guns ONLY. There is never any guarantee with rockets. I'm also assuming the spotter remains unmolested during the delay period, and while the strike is underway. Accurate arty strikes require the following things to happen: 1 The spotter must have LOS to the target point when it is targeted (blue line). 2 The spotter must have LOS at the exact moment the first spotting round is FIRED. That's it! The strike will be on-target EVERY time if you make sure these two things happen. However, #2 can be a bit of a problem. This is because spotting rounds are fired during the action phase of the turn, when you can't give orders. If smoke, or more likely dust, blocks spotter LOS, even briefly, at the exact moment the FIRST spotting round is due to fire, the spotting round will NOT fire, and the strike will be considered a blind strike by the program. There is nothing you can do until the next orders phase. Fortunately, the next orders phase is usually soon enough to prevent much wasted ammo and large scale fratricide due to the blind (inaccurate) strike. The key is to monitor your spotters closely during action phases to make sure spotting rounds do indeed fire. If they don't, you can bet there is an LOS obstruction. Cancel the strike during the next orders phase because, at that point, the strike IS blind and will likely be off-target. I wish I had time to chat about all this, like in the old days. Ah well, it's great to see my old arty post revived. Regards, Treeburst155
  13. So the Iranian nuke problem is just a fabrication of the U.S. Government....payback for them selling oil in Euros. Somebody really should put those evil Americans in their place. How can the world possibly tolerate such evil!? Well, I guess the same world that would allow Iran to nuke Israel into oblivion can tolerate the US crimes too. Treeburst155 out.
  14. Congratulations, Walpurgis Nacht!! Please email me a physical address so I can send you the $20.00 prize money I pledged to the winner when this tourney began. Again, Congratulations Champ! Treeburst155 out.
  15. IIRC, this tourney started about 11 months ago. If everyone had paid an entrance fee (the proceeds going to a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place cash prize), only the "serious" would enter. Games would be completed in a more timely manner. Just an idea..... I've crunched the raw scores with the Nabla program and sent the results to Kingfish. I'm sure he will post these results as soon as he has the time. I will be checking this thread each day, just in case there are scoring questions. Treeburst155 out.
