    CMSF2 - UK-Germany Beta AAR

    Admittedly, I'm a BFC forum lurker and always have questions but neglect to ask. Must say old boy that you nailed these two. Thought both you and Bil were doing something to enable those black squares and was super curious about the size of the Panzerfaust 3. Thanks to the both of you for demonstrating the new features; I cannot wait to get my hands on my own copy.

    The Steppenwulf's UI Icon & Silhouette Mod

    There's just something about colored icons that really adds to the game. Great work!

    BMP-3K and Ukrainian BTR-70

    Happy to report that the rangefinder on the BMP-3K has been removed and the wheels on the BTR-70 are no longer black. Well done BFC!

    Oh, okay great. Thanks for the clarification.

    BMP-3K and Ukrainian BTR-70

    So after a little fiddling, I found a work around for the BMP-3K. I have the CM Shock Force: Marines module where the BMP-3 was first modeled. I used RezExplode to access version 110 Marines.brz. I copied all the BMP-3 LOD files and renamed them to bmp.3-k.lod(x).mdr. I simply copied and pasted the renamed LOD files into the BS mods file and voila! The range finder (thanks Krasnoarmeyets!) now appears no matter the camera zoom. If anyone else had this issue, and you have the Shock Force module, it might be worth a shot. Unfortunately, the same trick doesn't apply the BTR-70 wheels, as Shock Forces doesn't have a BTR-70 and the model for CM:Afghanistan is different. AKD said the issue would be reported; maybe the BTR-70 wheels will get fixed in the next patch, maybe they won't. I still love the game regardless.

    BMP-3K and Ukrainian BTR-70

    Thanks for the response AKD. Now for my next question; is there a fix for this on my end? I scoured the forums (BS, RT, CMBN) and couldn't find mention of fix. Maybe I missed it though. By the way, kudos to you for your awesome sound mods.

    BMP-3K and Ukrainian BTR-70

    Yep, it sure does. Good thinking. On a hunch, I removed my mods folder and, unfortunately, the same issue occurred. I thought it might the 3D model quality setting (I usually play on "excellent") but it occurs on the "best" setting as well. I've checked every other vehicle in the game and the BMP-3K and the BTR-70 [ukraine] are the only ones that have issues. These are minor issues and surely do not detract from the game play. I was just wondering if anyone else had this issue.
  9. Is the BMP-3K supposed to have, for lack of a better term, a rectangular box rendered in-game and mounted above the 100mm gun? I believe it is a thermal imager but that's simply a guess. I ask because when I pan the camera from the vehicle, the the imager (the rectangular box) disappears. When I zoom/pan back in, the imager reappears. In addition, when I pan the camera from a Ukrainian BTR-70 the wheels texture disappears; the wheels turn black. Similar to the BMP-3K, when I zoom/pan the camera back in, the texture reappears. My computer specs are as follows: Vista 64-bit Intel ® core 2 Quad CPU Q9550 @ 2.83GHZ RAM - 8.00 GM AMD Radeon HD 7800 I have all the CM titles and vehicle rendering has never been an issue. I have attached an image to the provide reference. A BMP-3K is on the left, with a BMP-3M on the right for comparison. CM Black Sea 2015-03-05 18-59-26-11 www.imagesplitter.net (1).bmp

    Stagler's CMBS Mods

    Hey Stagler, awesome uniforms. I have been playing around with them a bit and decided to use your uniforms but keep the default helmet. It could just be me but I have found that your uniforms contrast nicely with the Russian gear and the default helmets, as the camo patterns are similar. Well done!

    I echo this sentiment! Thanks Kieme!

    Red Thunder sound mod V2

    Jorge, I have used bits of your previous sound mods; I must say that your new MG 42 is the best yet. Kudos!
