  1. I also upgraded from an i7-920 at 4 Ghz with a GTX 970 to an i9-9900 at 5 Ghz with a 2070 Super and I did see some difference in the CMx2 games. With the frame rates locked at 30 fps, I can play bigger scenarios with higher graphics set and keep at 30 fps more easily than I could with the old system. With the old system I sometimes had to turn down the Model Quality to Improved or even Balanced to maintain 30 fps while with the new system I can run most scenarios with the Model Quality up to Better or even Excellent and still keep 30 fps.
  2. The only game I use this option for is Train Simulator as it really helps out the graphics for that. But for other games, I've never really liked it.
  3. I built a new computer in September and got close to what you are planning on: i9-9900k overclocked to 5.1 Ghz using a Noctua NH-D15 CPU Cooler (You need a very good cooler for the i9-9900k!) Gigabyte Z390 AORUS MASTER w/ DDR4, 7.1 Audio, Dual M.2, Gigabit LAN Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4 3200MHz Kit (2x8GB), Black Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER GAMING OC (Decided on this card and not a RTX 2080 as the 2070 Super is supposedly only 4-5% slower than a RTX 2080 and for $200 CAD less) Samsung 970 EVO Plus NVMe M.2 PCI-E x4 SSD, 500GB for Windows 10 Home 64-bit Samsung 970 EVO Plus NVMe M.2 PCI-E x4 SSD, 1TB Seasonic Focus Plus Gold 850 Modular Power Supply, 80+ Gold, 850W Phanteks Enthoo Luxe Tempered Glass Edition E-ATX Case, Black And then I installed my two SSD's (960 GB and 480 GB) from the old computer into the new one. As for Windows 10 Pro or Home, I decided on the Home version because I don't need any of the features that come with Pro. "For the majority of users, Windows 10 Home edition will suffice. If you use your PC strictly for gaming, there is no benefit to stepping up to Pro.": PC Gamer article on Windows 10 versions The new computer plays CMx2 very well, but I still lock my frame rates to 30 fps using nVidia Inspector and Adaptive V-sync just to make the gameplay smoother. But I can now turn up the 3D Model Quality from Improved or Better with my old i7-920 at 4 Ghz to now Excellent or even Best.
  4. Thank you, Leprechaun. Your information has fixed the issues I have with CMx1 on my new Windows 10 computer.
  5. I just got a new computer last week and the re-installs went very well exactly as BFCElvis wrote. The only thing I did do on the old computer was un-license CMSF1 before I moved the SSD to the new computer.
  6. Thanks for the replies. Much appreciated! I realize that the adaptive vsync trick does reduce the draw distances, but on my old computer, that was the trade off for the older hardware. I tried the AA off and vsync off idea and found that the frame rates will go from under 24 fps up to the top 60 fps with those settings off. Since I have a non-Gsync or Free Sync monitor (60 Hz 1080p monitor), the stuttering was pretty heavy. Setting the frame rate limiter to 30.5 in nVidia Inspector seems to be the best option for me at least until or if the adaptive vsync setting is ever fixed in the newest nVidia drivers.
  7. Just got a new computer (i9-9900k with a RTX 2070 Super) and I find that the adaptive vsync with half refresh trick still does the best job with getting smooth frame rates, but with the latest nVidia driver (436.30), setting Vertical Sync to 1/2 Refresh Rate and Vertical Sync Tear Control to Adaptive doesn't cut the frame rates in half to a smooth 30 fps. Is this true for others that use this setting with the latest nVidia drivers? I read a few posts where others indicated the same thing. I ended up having to use the Frame Rate Limiter set to 30.5 to get the smoothness. For those who are curious, my new computer plays CMx2 better by allowing me to increase the 3D Texture Quality to Excellent on most scenarios using the adaptive vsync trick. My old i7-920 at 4 Ghz with a GTX 970 only allowed me to use Balanced or Improved on most scenarios. So the increase in performance is good, but not breathtaking with the new computer.
  8. No issues installing here though I haven't bought CMSF2 yet. Many thanks!
  9. Thanks for the info, Schrullenhaft.
  10. I wouldn't picking this game up as well. The only place I could find it still available for purchase is Gamersgate though. I don't know what the hazards are buying it from there compared to Battlefront directly including patch compatibility.
  11. There is a Donate button on the top right of the CM1 mods website. It takes you to Paypal.
  12. I just tried DDraw on my Windows 7 desktop and now fog shows up for CMBB. Many thanks for that tip.
  13. Terrific to see this game being modded again. Much appreciated, Oleksandr. I still play this game quite a bit.
