  1. Just checked it now, it resets to its normal position each time the 3d world is loaded, so it is pretty minor in hindsight.
  2. Not sure if this one is known already, but here it is. If you place a structure on a map and then give it a mosque dome on the roof, any subsequent change to the building will lead to the mosque dome to drop a bit. This includes changes to the facade and to the walls.
  3. I know that CMSF2 deals with a fictional timeline where an invasion of Syria happens in 2008, but most of the gear from that timeline is in use in the very real Syrian Civil War of today. I wonder if there is any chance for an expansion that would deal with the civil war and include some things that have been used in it, which aren't in the current game, like TOS-1, up-armored VBIEDs, and the IRAMs that the Syrians have used. I know that I'd be interested in such an expansion and I'd be surprised if I'm the only one.

    Bradley's fire TOWs?

    As far as I'm aware it detects that there is metal beneath it and a sudden change of elevation. If both are true, then it goes pop.

    CV90 bells and whistles

    As regards the ABM, the rounds can be fired in 2 or 3 round bursts (forgot which, I'll have to check after work tomorrow) or as singles. They can also be programmed to act like normal HE rounds and detonate on impact. In the ABM mode they can be used against helicopters or ground targets IIRC. I don't think they have a proximity mode though. It has a rather low ready ammo store, so they can blow through ammo quickly, and they aren't that quick to reload as I remember.

    CMSF2 Demos Released!

    Have WINRAR? If not, get it.
  7. I always love getting in close and watching the pixeltroopers in their various struggles with their opponents.

    The state of CMSF2

    It will be worth the wait for the kinks to be ironed out.

    They meant september of next year!

    I did the same. But what are they going to do? Say "oh, a nasty bug popped up and we are trying to resolve it"? That is probably a good thing to assume is what happened. I expect it will be released whenever they fix the issues.

    If that happens I'm taking a sicky on Monday. I think I feel a cold coming... :cough:

    It's my impression that the bulk of the folks at Grogheads have a fairly unrealistic view as regards customer service. I've seen it with other games of similar dev team sizes where they have heaped abused because of "x, y or z."
  12. Re: OP, are we sure that it does not include the T-62 as part of a typical Soviet tank and crew? As far as I'm aware they were notorious for taking a long time to load as a result of ergonomic/ammunition placement issues.

    Uh so has Debaltseve fallen?

    I haven't seen the footage so I have a potentially silly question. The question that I have is how do you know that the footage was in the combat area? Were there destroyed vehicles in the area or other evidence of combat, or was it just labled as such?

    Just A Comment

    I don't know about anyone else, but me, personally, I would pay 50 dollars or more for an update to CMSF to bring it up to date with the newest Combat Mission games as regards the features. Especially if some of the graphics were worked on. Its definitely been a favorite of mine through the years and its definitely topical. I'll crawl back into my cave now.
  15. Is it possible to unpack a .CAM file and use the maps/missions inside of it?
