  1. Under the apple icon, upper left corner of screen, click about this mac. Then click system report, then under software, applications then find your CM programs. It will tell if the programs are 64 bit or not. All mine, Normandy, Blitzkrieg, Red Thunder, Shock Force 2 Fortress Italy are 64 bit.
  2. I may have an answer. When you assign a plane to a mission use at least "medium" for the attack. Every time I use it the bomb dropped on target. Perhaps the program considers "light" for strafing even though I see no evidence of it.
  3. There is no AAA or SAM radar that I know of. The helicopters work OK. You would think that even if they jettisoned the bomb there ought to be a BANG somewhere.
  4. On several occasions I tried to use air support to bomb a target. Good line of sight, Jtac and/or forward observer team. Heard the jet, cleared hot, but there is no explosion. Then when I check the jet it shows a bomb has been dropped. What am I missing. There can't be that many duds. Thanks
  5. Thanks all for the answers. As I get older I realize I keep getting closer to the "here-after". When I step into my office I forget what I am here after.
  6. Maybe I missed something. I was playing a mission where my officer on a roof top was the only one with line of sight to enemy tanks. So I had them run into a vehicle acquire a javelin and run back to the roof top. Targeted the enemy tanks and nothing happened. They would not fire the javelin. The instructions are printed on the weapon ! Also, had an officer acquire a bunch of 7.62 machine gun rounds to take to a machine gun that was almost out of ammo but the transfer of the ammo would not take place. Do you have to be classified as "antitank"or support for that to happen? In my military time no matter what the weapon was as long as you pointed it in the right direction you were usually good to go and it didn't matter who brought you additional ammo.
  7. Thanks, I guess all of my targets have been ground pounders so I never saw the missiles used. On that note, is it possible to select which system you use. For example, target a building and not use the ATGM or use them without using the 25?
  8. In a scenario where you know there will not be any enemy vehicles can the mounted ATGM like on a Bradley be used to target a building even if the Bradley would still have gun ammo. The ATGM may not do much damage to the building but it it could be an immense aid in suppression.
  9. It doesn't give the experience level of the mortar personnel, just that the JTAC team is veteran. I guess we will just have to wait for the full game.
  10. I have the drone but am using the FO on a direct line of sight on a building or to lay a smoke screen in front of the buildings. The FO is on the roof of the observation building.
  11. Concerning the 120 mm mortars. My experience with mortars is limited to my time in Nam back in the 60's so forgive me if I seem a bit critical. In playing the training scenario in the CMSF 2 demo I have come to the conclusion that they cannot hit the broadside of a barn. The targeting shots are a long ways from where you want them to go and the fire for effect is not much better. You seem to spend a great portion of your meager supply of rounds just trying to get close to where you want them. I would think that veteran crews with a good line of sight by the FO would yield good results. We know exactly where the mortars are and we have good coordinates of where we want them to go so you would think with all the fancy electronic hardware we have they could better. For anyone of you who have served in with the 120 are they really that inaccurate?
  12. A lot of good posts here and we seek many things. For my two cents I love the graphics and admire those who are smart enough to make them. Having said that I look for playability too. I really don't care if helmets don't have chin straps or the pistol holster is on the wrong side or if the shoulder patch isn't quite historically correct. I want vehicles that go around corners without stop pivot move stop pivot move etc.. I would like to see, in the WWII games, all of the equipment from CM1 into CM2. But I do like the products and will continue to purchase them.
  13. If a Bradly runs out of 25 mm can it be reloaded from another Bradly that might perhaps be immobile and basically useless. Also if a Bradly runs out of 25mm and there is no armored threat can it fire it's TOW missiles at a building or fox holes?
  14. All the equipment in CM1 and the ability to use it in any of the CM scenarios. Not exactly historically correct but makes for more fun.
  15. Actually I was not joking. Having witnessed Arc Light strikes in Viet Nam I saw first hand what those B-52's could do.
