  1. Hope I'm not getting ahead of myself, but I went ahead and picked out my award. I'm going with a Porsche 911 Carrera GTS in flashy red. It's only about $120k, surely Steve at @Battlefront.com can afford to give this as a tourney award right? 😀 P.S. I am serious... and don't call me Surely! ðŸĪŠ
  2. Raising this thread from the grave! 😀 So wasn't battlefront suppose to give some kind of an award to the victor of this tourney? I ask because @Bootie from FGM hooked me up with a kool swag plaque! ðŸĪ™
  3. Great job on your CMBS mods, I got em all! As for modding CMSF2, it should be no different than what you've done with CMBS. As a fan I look forward to your work!

    How Exciting...

    Yep CMSF really turned into a great war game in its own right, especially with all the modules. It taught or reminded many that a good war game is a good war game period, regardless of the theater/time frame it takes place in. Guess I was part of the group who bought it primarily for a taste of the new engine and as the appetizer for the inevitable return to WWII. But I ended up loving it and played the hell out of it! Now replaying/revisiting it with the 4 upgrades is quite a treat. Good times ahead!

    Oh but it will be.... sooner than you think! 😉
  6. Ho ho ho... Santa Steve has arrived... CMSF2 looking good!
  7. Thought I had pretty much everything modded in CMBN but saw this guy in one of my latest battles. Tried searching for it over at CMMODs and couldn't find it. Maybe I missed something. Any mods for it?

    Sdkfz 10/5 AA 20mm halftrack mod?

    FYI, I noticed this same AA HT in CMRT as well. So if and when it ever gets modded, it could double duty in both games.

    Thanks for trying mjkerner on whipping up a mod for this AA HT. Yeah maybe the master Aris can give it some of his mod love. Known on these forums as @Fuser

    Sdkfz 10/5 AA 20mm halftrack mod?

    I believe this oddball AA HT came in the vehicle pack, so it may have been overlooked.

    Sdkfz 10/5 AA 20mm halftrack mod?

    Thanks but I tried those already, except for the snow versions since they do me no good in CMBN.
  12. Trying to get any CMx2 title to run on a Sony HD TV using the PC-In option. I keep getting a "Could not initialize graphics display: REQUIRED 1024x768, 32 color" error. But the PC is set on 1400x1050, 32 color. Thats the recommended or native resolution for the TV. Also tried several other resolutions but get same error. The TV is several years old but am able to play lots of other PC games on it, just not my beloved CM. I tried editing the display file in the Users folder but it still doesn't work. Im using a Nvidia GTX 570 card with a DVI to VGA adapter from my PC to the TV. Any ideas?

    Running CM on TV

    Ok I figured it out, or more like I found the fix here. If only I had searched for it like 4 hrs ago. Oh well, life goes on, works like a charm now. Thanks for the input anyway!

    Running CM on TV

    Ok now remember why I went with VGA when I set this up a couple years ago. It was because I didn't have an extra HDMI cable but had plenty of VGAs and adapters. So went that route instead of the norm. But now I do have a HDMI cable and got it set up but am still getting the same error. So now im more puzzled, VGA and HDMI give me the same error. Tried fiddling around with some of the settings in the Nvidia cp, turned off all AA and ani filtering but still same error. Gotta be something Im missing.

    Running CM on TV

    Ok thanks, yeah I was thinking of going that route too. Will have to pickup a DVI to HDMI adapter somewhere. But dont see why VGA isn't working for CM since other games dont have a problem with it.
  16. I cant get this mod to work. All it does for me is turn day time into night. Tried all different combos of shaders off, night time mode, and alt-M but nothing. All mods cleared out of the z folder.
  17. First off, can 2 different PCs play each other online with a single purchase, 2 activations? I'm assuming they can, but nonetheless I couldn't connect to other games posted here. I have my windows firewall turned off and ToW is in the allowed list under my norton security. I'm not connected to a router either. We even tried connecting through on a LAN with Hamachi, but no luck. I checked out the mp configuration file but still couldn't connect. How's mp working for everybody else, is this normal? Does anybody that got mp to work have any ideas?

    sell on Steam?

    FWIW I just bought Panzercorps the other week for 10 bucks on their steam sale. I'm loving it and plan on buying the expansion packs at whatever they cost, sale or no sale. Would I have bought the game for 30 from over at the Slitherine site, nope no sale. I've bought lots of games I never would of even heard of if not for Steam. Would be interesting if BF try a test with their old CMx1 games with a Steam release. Or maybe CMSF just to sorta test the waters.

    PBEM games crashing at 26%

    It does seem to be working... so far anyway.

    Where is the screenshot thread?

    Yummy yummy more CM for my tummy!
  21. Honestly guys, while making and testing this scenario my IS-2s usually just brushed aside the Stugs. If I had to toss out a stat, I'd say about 75% of the time my IS-2s defeated the Stugs with losses of around 2-5 ISs (IMO acceptable losses). Thats based on at least a dozen playthroughs. Also if memory serves, I think there was some comments from other testers about even beefing up the Germans with a Panther to help. That suggestion was denied due to being historically inaccurate. Happy to hear you like it Lethaface. Had a ball making it. And lets face it, who doesn't like blowing stuff up with big guns. P.S. Agree with you about some missions being a little too big, at least for my tastes. Especially for the first mission of a cam. But IIRC Steve said something along the lines of setting the tone for CMRT having larger scale battles.
  22. It's been many years since I read it, so don't remember much. I did enjoy it no doubt, but also remember thinking it was overrated. Still worth a read though.
  23. Great job, downloading now...
