    CMAK Available

    Hello: Thinking of buying this but I don't see it on the new site?
  2. Hello: (I know that most CMx1 forums are fairly quiet these days so hope it is OK to post this here as well as on Blitz.) Not great at these games but I am still dabbling a bit with CMBB and was wondering if you could help me figure out how to approach Gefechtsaufklaerung as the attacking Germans.Here is the map. I have an on-board IFH18 105mm artillery piece with HE and 3S. Plus I have an Sdkfz 251/10 command HT. There are scattered tress around the road in the setup area. The house on the right is on a rise. Also have a StuG IIIB.Do you leave the Gun in the setup area (best LOS is then when it is placed on the road in the setup area). Or do you tow it somewhere with the Sdkfz?I am struggling to see how to use these tools at my disposal. Any help much appreciated.Gerry

    Scenario Help

    Thanks. You gave me that link sometime ago! I found it helpful. For example I had a German infantry squad killed a T-34 with a grenade bundle or Panzerwurfmine - cannot recall. Spike showed the distance you needed to close to, to make this work. Thanks again.

    Scenario Help

    15+ Turns and it's a small map - from the StuG to the building it is only about 215m. So your idea seems very good. I was wondering what to do with the HT as it only has a 37mm gun so I thought they meant for you to tow the Gun somewhere. One of my problems always is how to know if you will have LOS from somewhere. So I have a MG34. I could move it through the scattered tress to the house I suppose as that is on a rise so I "should" have LOS to the village from there. How do you try and find places for things like MGs in a scenario like this. The HT can carry a team so I suppose I could carry the MG team in the HT to the house area? Is there any resource that tells you how fast HT move through scattered trees? Thanks very much.
  6. Hello: Installing it on a new Asus Zenbook (Windows 10) and get a message saying "Could not initialize Direct3D graphics". Any thoughts? Thanks.

    Install Problem - Graphics

    Thanks. Maybe mine doesn't look so bad then. I will try and add the terrain mod that I have on my Windows 7 computer. So please don't go setting up a test for me. I will play around with it. Thanks again.

    Ignore this as I figured it out. I installed it on the Surface Pro 3 + Windows 10, set to XP SP3 Compatibility, and got 1024 x 768 resolution. Good as I can see more of the map as compared to 800x600. BUT the terrain seems very power quality. The Open Ground terrain looks really poor. Any idea why this might me? (Didn't do anything with DLLs on this computer).

    Can you remind me how to access the license program/site so I can free up one install. Thanks.

    Thanks for your help. The choice comes up fairly quickly. I used the update driver option in Device Manager and it thinks it is the most recent driver. I will try and un-license and put it on a Surface Pro 3 that I also have. Gerry

    Anyone else getting 800 x 600 as their highest resolution choice??

    Can't alt tab successfully

    I assume you left the game at the menu? What I found is I have to mouse over the bottom part of the screen where the buttons for Join Multiplayer, Exit, etc are. When you mouse over, the buttons come alive and you can click them.

    I know about the Preferences file from the other thread so I can retry to find another resolution. Problem is I never get an option higher than 800 x 600 at 60Hz. Which is impossible to play at of course.

    Ignore my speed comment. I set compatibility to XP SP3 and I saw the fix (Alt-Tab) in the other thread about performance and that works. Should I be getting higher resolution choices than 800 x 600?

    Install Problem - Graphics

    Hi: I have a Zenbook UX33OUA and I have 1.04. DLL stuff did not seem to work. but I just tested one compatibility option (Vista) and it worked. But low resolution choices (800 x 600 I think). Plus incredibly slow. What could be making the performance so poor at low resolution. Thanks for your help.

    Looks like the adapter is Intel HD Graphics 620.

    Correction: Problem occurs when trying to run CMBB. I have it installed. P.S. Cannot see a way to edit my original post and title?

    Communal Combat Mission

    Thanks for this. Very interesting.
  19. Hello: Have CMBB on a laptop. Just got a Zenbook for travel purposes and when installing it says I am out of license instances? How many computers can I install it on? Zenbook would be two. Unless I have it on an old computer that is inaccessible to me now. Thanks for any help.

    CMAK vs CMBB Improvements

    Thanks Erwin. You seem to still keep one foot in the CMx1 camp as I sometimes see you on those forums. Just about to start a small CMBB with Owl so excited to see how it goes.
  22. Hi: I am not interested in the desert itself but I believe there is a mod for playing Western Front scenarios using the CMAK engine. So instead of getting the older CMBO I might be interested in getting CMAK. How did the game change going from CMBB to CMAK briefly? Or maybe you can point me to an article comparing them? Thanks.

    Thanks as always for your quick response.

    Infantry Movement Bug?

    Many on here probably laugh at boardgames but if a minefield is cleared there, it is cleared. Just don't understand people defending something that is not working in a reasonable way. Surely the way forward for the games is to have cleared minefields work as such so that the player that tactically decided to clear them can now use them.
  25. Hello All: I have done scouting in the first few minutes and have spotted a Tiger (facing the wrong way) and a PSW. On board I have infantry and 4 tubes of 60mm and 4 tubes of 81mm Mortars. I should be getting 3 Shermans and 1 x 105 Sherman in a minute or so. So naturally I am wondering how to proceed. Do you fire some mortars at the PSW now? I assume you wait for your tanks? On the PSW it says range 3000m - no such note on the Tiger. Is this the distance to the PSW and is there a way in game for the player to estimate distances? I assume a leader with binos estimated that distance to the PSW? Is weapon range included in the Encyclopedia? Appreciate any help.
