  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. No issues installing here though I haven't bought CMSF2 yet. Many thanks!
  5. Thanks for the info, Schrullenhaft.
  6. 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.
  7. There is a Donate button on the top right of the CM1 mods website. It takes you to Paypal.
  8. I just tried DDraw on my Windows 7 desktop and now fog shows up for CMBB. Many thanks for that tip.
  9. Terrific to see this game being modded again. Much appreciated, Oleksandr. I still play this game quite a bit.
  10. Many thanks for posting that, Vein. Playing CMRT right now and I can say that the green tracers are from the Soviets while Germans have red.
  11. These new effects are definitely in the new v400.brz files that installed with the game engine upgrade. The file names for tracers and muzzle effects have changed so any mods for those will not work with new or old save games. As Ian wrote, someone will probably mod them eventually. I myself have no talent when it comes to this.
  12. My HDD crashed on my back in February and I replaced it with a SSD and I definitely would not go back to a HDD. The boot up time for Windows 7 went from about 3 minutes download to about 20 seconds on my old i7-920. Games load much faster now including CMx2 like others have mentioned. Performance wise though, there is no difference. But despite being upset having to reload everything from scratch and the cost of the SSD, I'm very happy having with the SSD.
  13. V-Sync is set to Off in the game. In nVidia Inspector, V-Sync is set to 1/2 Refresh Rate and Vertical Sync Tear Control set to Adaptive. That should give you 30 fps pretty consistently.
  14. My settings are: V Sync: Off Antialias/Multisample: On High Priority: On Shaders: On What really helped with my GTX 970 was turning on Adaptive V-Sync and setting the V-Sync refresh rate to 1/2 in nVidia Inspector for all of the CMx2 games. I get 30 fps pretty consistently using Improved Model Quality and even Better and Excellent. The Texture Quality is always set to Best.
