  1. Just found my CMBN steelbook on my doorstep here in Tasmania and enjoyed the opening and shelving experience. =0) Overall I feel CMBN is a gorgeous product, good value, and feel lucky such a niche simulation has been crafted so meticulously and lovingly for people like me. Nice effort Battlefront Boys. Thanks from Tassie
  2. from zero to $60 in 37 milliseconds . . . Never has $60 flown out of my credit-card faster!
  3. When the BF website loaded and the title of the latest post hit my eyes there was an involuntary "Whoop" and spontaneous applause here in Tasmania that might have been heard all the way over in the BF bunker? Been waiting since 2002 to press the order button on this game . . . Almost silly how overjoyed a man can be about a computer game on a specific computer platform . . . but this is no ordinary game and [put your flammenwerfers away please] IMHO this is no ordinary OS. Thank you Team BF. ...... now about that CM:BN version for the iPad?
  4. OMG \0/ How many years have we been waiting to read these words? FINALLY, I can be rid of my Bootcamp partition and enjoy CM natively in OS X so I can dupe myself, and others, that I'm actually working on / multitasking on real jobs. Hopefully it will scream on my new 3.33GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon “Westmere” powered MacPro with ATI Radeon HD 5870. Hmmm, wondering how / if CM:N will make use of multiple CPU cores? May have to get 2 x 27" LED flat panels so I can be completely immersed as all the M72 AP shells bounce of the Tiger I front glacis plates. Now . . . about that CM:N iPad / iPhone App?
  5. Does that mean I should stop working on my "One platoon of Abrams takes on Kampfgruppe Peiper in open desert" OS X native scenario? Really??? =(
  6. CMx2 Tigers!!!!!!!!! Yeeeeeeehaaaaaaaaaa! *** AND *** If you look closely at the pixels you can clearly see this screen capture is from a Mac OSX native version of CMx2!
  7. Go Cog! Thanks for the feedback. I'm really curious if with that extra RAM you can tweak the P4.0 settings high enough to get a better result . . .Hmmmm? God . . . if that worked my credit card would likely leap out of my wallet and run all the way to the Apple store and buy a new MB pro. All you moaning about how crappy the AAV's are consider those who CAN'T EVEN RUN CMSF . . . I'd happily play an AAV vs T-90 scenario for the next month if I could just get CMSF to run on my puter.
  8. Not sure how many of you are Mac users looking for a cheap way to run CMSF . . . but out of curiosity . . . if one were to buy a "cheap" PC computer JUST to run CMSF . . . which would it be?
  9. Cabal-two-three, Here are my test results with a 3yo macbook pro 2.0 core duo, 2GB RAM (1) Dual-boot "boot-camp" XP runs CMSF "ok" / "fine" / "enjoyable play" - my problem is that for reasons I won't go into here I can no longer have bootcamp on my mac =( =( (2) Have tested with Parallels 2.2 (old) and no luck at all getting CMSF to run (3) Have tested with the "new" Parallels 4.0 w/ XP and can ALMOST get CMSF to work . . . but not quite - Video issues. I believe - BUT DON'T KNOW FOR SURE - if I had more RAM, and could increase the settings under the emulator, then P4.0 could run CMSF? My problem is my Macbook pro is rev 1 and can't take more RAM =( =( So, if you have an intel OS X box with 4GB RAM or so I'd download the FREE P4.0 trial version and test out CMSF after you have setup the virtual-machine with maximum RAM and Video RAM. Me . . . I'm stuck in this foxhole without CMSF . . . dreaming of future victories that smell like Native OS X CMX2 in the morning.
  10. I had a dream last night . . . I was able to play all the CMX2 titles natively on all my Intel Mac OS boxes. . . . it was wonderful.

  12. Parallels Frustration Juanjo . . . your post got me hoping I could get Parallels 4.0 & CMSF working on my Intel Mac Book Pro (Early 2006 - 2.0Ghz - 256VRAM - 2GB RAM) After alot of work - install Parallels Desktop 4.0 14 day trial, install XP SP3, install CMSF 1.08, and alot of mucking with settings (both CMSF and Parallels) I've ended up close but out of luck . . . graphics just don't work right - the world is all funny, transparent, and the UI goes blankish . . . Can you post more details on your machine specs and your Parallels settings? I assume you have more than 2GB of RAM and more than 256MB of VRAM? I can't install bootcamp due to my disk configuration and not being able to play CMSF is really PISSING ME OFF! =) Thanks in advance
  13. Steve . . . thanks for your swift and candid reply. and thanks for a great game system . . . Cheers mate, Thomas BTW - any chance ever getting ( even some / few / select units ) Aussies in CMSF?
  14. Now, now Elmar . . . lets not start that kinda thread my friend . . . I run / sys admin Windows boxes, Linux / Unix boxes, and OS X boxes . . . it's a question of the best tool for the job at hand. My personal platform of choice is OS X . . . and OS X users that are devoted to CM X 2 games would simply like to know what the playing field is before we buy . . . no complaints . . . just information so that we can choose to buy now or wait. BTW - ran into someone who knows a certain former senior MS employee very well. This former employee of MS was very central to the development of recent Windows OS. . . now that he / she is out of Redmond would you like to guess what platform this person has chosen to buy for themselves ??? Ha ha! back to my box w/ "Intel inside" . . . .
  15. WoW, The scope and power of the CMX2 system is really starting to become apparent to me. I'm excited about all the options, time periods, and locations we are going to see over the next few years. It seems to me the tide has turned and I hope that all the BFC staff feel as satisfied with their efforts as they should - thanks for making this boutique game system possible. I love CMSF, can't wait for the Marines Module, and will jump for joy when I get to hunt with Panzers again . . . but as a Mac OS X devoted user / programmer I've stopped playing CMSF for a while due to the hassles of dual-boot and running Windows via boot-camp. This is not a bitch . . . I'm happy to wait ( a bit ) . . . but with the new module about to burst on the scene - and with new purchase decisions - can Steve / BFC make any updated comment on when we will see an OS X port and what the license policies will be for those who have already bought Windows versions? Will you let us convert our Widows licenses to Mac when the time comes? Many thanks boys . . . heat up! Thomas
