  1. Good idea. I turn to Grigsby's almost unplayably massive WITPAE (War In The Pacific Admirals Edition) or a sim like Wolves of The Pacific etc.
  2. Maybe am not reading it carefully enuff, but it sounds like the same ideas that were being talked about 20 years ago but using new fangled jargon and cool new words as in a academic, ivory tower marketing piece.
  3. Wow so - 3 versions!! Do you recall the differences?
  4. Yeah, after playing versions of CM for 20 years now, burn-out is a regular issue. Sometimes it takes a few weeks or months away. Take a break. Too many talented modders and designers have vanished over the years after making huge efforts, never to be heard of again.
  5. make sure they are in same platoon. IIRC can only share if in same formation.
  6. Good "camerawork" and looks great. For some reason my graphics even at 2700x1800 doesn't look as good. However, for only half an hour of combat seems to have taken more casualties than desired (for the 4 hour scenario).
  7. So long as the air intake doesn't go underwater stopping the supply of oxygen, the engine keeps working. Impressive nonetheless.
  8. Should be called the Entire European Union Guard of Honour... or EEUGH.
  9. Got it - thank you... BTW: I notice that I have a "Barkman's Corner Revised" dated March 31 2019, and a "Barkman's Corner Revisited" dated Dec 14, 2016. Wondered if they are the same. (The original scenario is dated May 15, 2011.)
  10. ooops too late to get it. Is this on CMMODS?
  11. Thanks Michael. Up for a few breaths of air and then down again...
  12. I still have the 8mm version in carrying bag and handle etc. Imagine it's museum piece now. Moving house, so will be offline for at least a few days. Good luck all!
  13. Not a clue... I have no problem running CM1 on Win 7 or Win 10, so never needed the hack. Will be moving house and traveling without internet for a few days now. Good luck!
  14. the little hack that BF suggests to people using Win10? - open Combat Mission - ctrl + alt + del: Activity Manager - go to Details tab - find the CM.exe file and right click on it - click on Set affinity and uncheck all CPUs - check one CPU only (doesn't matter which) - go back to CM and open your PBEM file. This improves navigation in CM considerably.

  16. This is a "new install on a new computer..." I installed CMSF2 (hopefully) ok yesterday. For the others... so I should start with any order that says "v4.0 Upgrade"? I copied the activation codes to a doc already. Are there separate act. codes for v4 and v3? Or, does the one code given when product originally purchased work on both? BTW: Is there an easy way to see what each purchase actually represents? I find myself spending much time just clicking on Order Links trying to find a particular product I bought. It would be really helpful to have each order named re what the game title is. Thnx...
  17. Just want to make sure I do this correctly. Where to locate the full installers, and what codes do I need? thnx
  18. Oh yes, it is MUCH more easy to keep men alive in CMSF2 lol. If a CMSF2 scenario is done right, one can barely afford any friendly casualties at all.
  19. MOS is singlehandedly coming up with some amazing ideas that are redefining/refreshing the typical CM2 scenario and what can be accomplished with the editor. Amazing stuff.
  20. "...if the rebels make a rebel broadcast from WTF Radio station while the political prisoners are still in Fisbuk Prison the regime executes the prisoners. Also there are now two different ways to have a police unit join the rebellion. Then at 0600hrs a USMC task force shows up off the coast....." Sounds like very good ideas. When I tested it felt to me that there was an optimal/obvious series of actions/objectives that should be accomplished in a predictable order - ie "forced decisions" that were not a dilemma for the player - and that limited replay potential. (After playing 3 or 4 times, I found myself doing the same things over and over again.) Now that making the broadcast asap is no longer an obvious "no brainer" that should create additional difficult decisions for the player. The USMC TF is also a good idea, as before, there seemed no point in continuing after 6pm.
  21. Interesting as soldier on the right appears to be carrying what could be an early Bolex 16mm camera. (I recall that was one of the first I was trained on as they were still in use in the 70's.)
