  1. Thanks for the reply ..... Ahhh .... that's what you get for working from a printout of the hotkeys from the 'Demo' manual . Note to Self: Read the bloody manual !! OK thanks. Pity, still I can work around it. Lou
  2. First off: Hi. I've been away from these forums and all things CM (well all PC gaming) since a little after the release of CMAK. But I've been dragged back by the lure of CMSF ... so yesterday I downloaded CMSF + Marines module and am just getting back into things. Waypoint Questions: First Question. Viewing waypoints. Is there a way to view all waypoints currently plotted .. not just those for the currently selected unit, as there was in the old CM1 games. I used to find that option useful when plotting waypoints for multiple units (esp vehicles). Second Question. Editing waypoints. If I have given a unit a string of waypoints, is there a way to edit/move one waypoint other than deleting back from the final waypoint. Sometimes I just want to fine tune an intermediate waypoint without re-plotting the whole path. Forgive me if these have been asked before or are just plain 'stupid' ... I've done a search, but not read the whole of the forum and I've never been good at reading whole game manuals in PDF format ... I've got a little catching up to do ! Thanks
  3. Uwe, Many thanks for the response, I'm fairly sure it will run OK ...... but it never hurts to ask ! Cheers Lou
  4. I've been absent from all things 'battlefront' for quite a while, but with a new PC I'm considering ToW. However I'm wondering how it will run with my PC spec: Intel Core 2 duo E4500 (2x2.2ghz) Nvidia Geforce 8600 GS (256mb) 2 Gig Ram Windows Vista (Home Premium) It's the games performance under Vista that I'm really looking for confirmation on .... I think the rest should be fine ! Cheers Lou
  5. Not sure if this link has been posted before, but the there is so much here I'm sure it will be of interest ! Small Wars Journal A quick search of the site for 'stryker' brings up a number of articles ... here's one (PDF File) RE-EXAMINING TOMORROW’S BATTLEFIELD: TAKING THE FIGHT INTO THE CITIES Lou2000
  6. Hmmmmmmm ....... I've been away from CMxx and the fourm's for a good few months now, but this looks like a good enough reason to dust off my copies of CMBB/CMAK. Might be a bit rusty ..... still every tournament needs some 'easy meat' !!
  7. Looking forward to Andrea's latest creation. This link posted more for interest that great CM value, but may be of use ....... OLD MAPS UK Enter a UK placename and it will bring up an old map of the area. Most seem to be between 1860 - 1890 So no where near WW2 timeline, however the maps 60 years before the war probably have more in common with the time than current maps 60 years after it ! I believe the 'Holien estate' may be marked on the map of the area! Either way ... Its hard to resist exploring your local area 120 years ago ! Sometimes hard to get orientated .... churches are usually a good 'common' start point. Lou2000
  8. Cozog.com has just become a temporary addition to my 'Blocked' email address list. Thanks for the warning. I cant believe ANYBODY runs without a virus checker these days ! If you dont want to buy one try AVG antivirus ...... its free.
  9. Nice work Von Lucke, I was going to do a Marlene Dietrich 'Lili Marlene' mod myself ... You've saved me a job. I two have mp3 German versions and did get an English version, but he quality wasnt too good. I put it off whilst doing some background sound mods, very similar to the current ambient sounds in the game, but without the artillery. I prefer my explosions to be caused by me (or my opponent) Lou

  11. ..Another GameSpy quote from the same article.... Outdoes CM ? I think not !!
  12. OK a final update. The NOWT Tournament final is over and SteveS has a copy of this book on its way to him .... Tobruk: Birth of a legend - Amazon. That should get him in the mood for North Africa ! Thanks again to all who took part .... Including Dr Juzzy who earlier win the tournament was generous enough to offer a prize for the runner up .... well at least there won't be any postage on it I have a few ideas for the NAFF that will again be a knockout tounament, but instead of individuals it will be teams of either 2, 4 or 6 depending on how many players are intersted. .....I'll post more details in the CMAK fourm when its ready to start ... ALL NOWT players will be offered a place. Thanks again. Lou
  13. The NOWT has finally come to an end. 10 months since I first posted to get players to sign up .... NOWT Congratualtions Steve .... Contact me via email and I'll sort out the details of the prize. Dr Juzzy ... well done in getting to the final. I'd like to say thanks to all those who took part and stuck with it for the duration. Including those, who like myself, were knocked out in the first round and those who managed to battle of a little longer. Considering it the amount of time it took to get some of the results in and the overall lenght of the tournament, I'm grateful we had so few people drop out. Those who did, only did so for understandable and unavoidable reasons. Thanks Lou2000 .... Hmmmm that was NOWT Special ... I'm thinking maybe a NAFF Tournament (North African Fun Fest) somtime in the future.
  14. Thats becuase Elephant hunting is illegal, they are a protected species you know (sorry, couldnt resist)
  15. It is a good little program ... I've been using it for a few months after somebody reccommended it. Its been so reliable that I forget I'm using it :cool: ... always the sign of a good bit of software. Just be aware that it can take quite a while to create an image of a protected CD (ie CDV) and you may think it has failed. It could take a couple of hours. Just let it continue. Non-protected disk images are created in a couple of mins. Well worth the money, cheaper and easier than a new drive. I though more people knew about it. Lou
