  1. 4 pages and not a single word on what these mods actually do? I tried searching but came up empty.
  2. I wish the campaigns were sorted according to their difficulty. I wonder how many beginners tried Courage and fortitude as their first campaign and then quit after thinking the game is broken. Usually only a very small percentage ever sets foot on the forums and actually asks for help like this.
  3. I tried both with and without the old skinpack, and it fits good enough for me at least, and probably good enough for the guy missing his camo skin as well. I totally understand the creator wanting his creation to be absolutely perfect however. Also you have absolutely nothing to be sorry about, so stop saying it. Thanks for this great mod.
  4. I'm still using my rusty metal skinpack for v3 and it seems to work just fine with v4 so I don't see why the camo version shouldn't work. Or is there something I'm missing here?
  5. Fund a mental institution today! (see what I did there?) Back to OT again: If you're in need of lessons in tactics I can highly recommend watching the entirety of this video series here: I can also recommend reading up on the tactical toolbox on Bil Hardenberger's excellent website. It can be found here. Since the game is designed to represent real warfare as close as possible, real tactics apply. Just get over that initial hump and you'll have a game that rewards you in spades for the time you put into learning it. Cheers!
  6. Also remember that you can make the game both look and sound a LOT better by modding it. Most of us have a mod folder of a couple of gigs. Welcome to Combat Mission. Hope you'll enjoy your stay.
  7. Is there a reason for Aris StuH mid not working properly? Early works fine, but mid only gets its chassis modded. The skirts are the default clean ones that look nothing like in the modded skirts bmp file.
  8. Makes sense since I don't own the MG module. Would be nice to have this issue looked at by the devs.
  9. My sound mod of choice. Awesome job mate.
  10. Simply brilliant, as expected from you. Looking forward to release!
  11. Sometimes getting to the objective zone first isn't what you want, a.k.a ongoing 120mm mortar barrage.
  12. I'm playing on PC. The install is a completely fresh 3.11 that I downloaded yesterday after buying the 3.0 upgrade.
  13. Yes it has nothing to do with Juju's tweaked UI or any other mods. That was just a coincidence that I tried removing that while also not using mixed force, so I edited my post. After further testing it seems to have something to do with the combination of using mixed and letting the AI pick their forces. If picking their forces for them manually it seems to work just fine, but setting pick on auto or setting it to human and then using the AI suggestion will crash it every time. The instant the suggestion button is pressed the game crashes.
  14. I have the same issue. If I choose infantry only for both sides it works just fine. Choosing mix will crash it every time.
  15. Afaik if you both have the same version (2.12 being the newest) you can play your friends. You just can't use the forces that come with the CW and MG modules.
  16. I could be wrong, but isn't this accomplished by holding the right mouse button and moving the mouse up and down?
  17. Imagine the horror of being a russian conscript stuck in the woods and getting flanked by M31 Suomi-toting finns on skis. Or even worse, bear cavalry!
  18. How do you guys take your screenshots? Print screen key used to work for me but doesn't anymore. It just gives me a black screen when I paste it in my photo editor.
  19. Yeah I noticed. At least when/if the guy comes back and finds his modest little post turned into a mutated monster of a thread he'll know the community is still pretty active, if nothing else.
  20. There's nothing worse than zoologically inaccurate sound mods! You should be ashamed of yourself you silly dane!
  21. It may not be perfect, but there's still nothing else that I'm aware of with equal or better fidelity than CM. Achtung Panzer isn't bad, but the infantry part is really simplified and kind of silly. Close Combat is also very simplified. I don't know about Wargame since I haven't played it but from what I've seen it also seems to be more simple in nature. If these games are the wide brush that you use to paint a wall with, then CM is the smaller brush used for more delicate work. Nothing wrong with either of them, just used for different things. I just haven't been able to find another strategy game with the same amount of detail and fidelity as CM. Same reason why I fly in DCS over War Thunder. They're both good games, but I prefer the detail of the former. Battlefront may not be perfect either, but who is? At least they actually communicate with us and implement features we suggest if they're valid. I'm not exactly spoiled with that sort of thing. (All of the above are my personal opinions and should not be interpreted as anything else.)
  22. There's nothing wrong with the reloading and bolt cranking sounds themselves. They sound great. The problem I have with them is that in a fight they'll be almost as loud (and as frequent) as the shots themselves and I can hear them when zoomed out. If they were very silent and could only be heard when zoomed in up close and personal then that would be a different matter entirely, but it's not possible as far as I know for a sound modder to make that happen since it would have to be something coded into the engine itself. Thanks once again waclaw.
  23. Thanks alot! You're very kind, but you really don't have to release it as soon as tomorrow. I'm not in that much of a hurry. What specifically do you mean with "shells"? Tank shells making noise when hitting the floor of the tank? Tank reloading noise? Those aren't quite as annoying to me since tanks have a much slower reload time than a rifle and there's also usually alot fewer tanks than bolt action rifles, so you don't have to, but if there's no trouble then sure, please do. And thanks again for accommodating my personal wishes when you really didn't have to.
