    Irratic Framerate Issue

    Wooohooo, CPU hardware is finally catching up with CM! 😊
  2. Is your daughter eligible for marriage? 😉 Kidding aside, you have one awesome daughter. 😊

    That would make more sense yes.

    Your wife found remains of a German soldier in the garden?

    In Slovenia demining is paid by the state. Do parcel owners where ordinance is found have to pay for deminers themselves?

    Erm, shouldn't you like not touch it and move it around? LOL
  8. Battlefront's most common ETA is: "When it's done it's done." Other ETA's include only approximate release windows but those are often not met and stuff gets released with a delay usually (small team and quality over quantity mentality). Also, when dev Steven says "soon" expect at least a couple of months for that "soon" to materialize. My estimate based on the previous patch experience is that we will see a patch brought to our monitors in the time window of 1 to 2 months. Good news is that life gives us all sorts of interesting things that we can pursue in-between periods Battlefront releasing their stuff. For example, I wanted to upgrade my comp in February 'cos smart people have said the GPU and DDR pricing will finally go down then. But it went up so much so that GPU's cost 3 times more then what I would have to pay just a few months ago. Thus no new comp for me until cryptocurrencies are done for or GPU manufacturers create GPU's specialized for crypto-mining or remove CUDA's from the gaming GPU's. So now I can bitch about that and forget that I have been waiting for the 4.0 patch ever since it was released...

    Yeah, being born in the places where battles took place and interested in these things..., the two together amplify each other. I was born in North-Western part of Slovenia where "Isonzo battelfield" took place in the first world war. We still have an unexploded Italian granade under our doorstep for example and the area is full of trenches and metal. I even found remains of a dead Austro-Hungarian soldier in the collapsed cavern high up in the Alps as a kid. Happy for you that the game reignited your vanning passion.
  10. CM games do not work on Macs with emulated Windows. Just a reminder in case this is what you meant to do.
  11. Avoid AMD CPU's! Especially the FX generation ones. I have it and it sucks big time. Get yourself a higher frequency core i5, 7th (i5 7600K) or current 8th generation (i5 8600K->low availability at the moment) . I don't know about AMD Ryzen cpu's (seen no feedback from any players sporting them) but I know their 1 core tasks churn out less then intel cpus so it is reasonable to assume they would perform worse then intel ones. As for GPU's, since summer the price of GPU's was rising a lot due to mining activities (much bigger demand for middle GPU performers, GTX 1060, AMD 580 but also very noticable with 1070 series). Same story with RAM. Bottom line is I would wait until the prices drop for GPU's, RAM (crazy 40 to 50% overpaying for some models at the moment) and when the newest 8th generation i5's become more available. Their single core performance is awesome and they deliver a much smoother gaming experience as per (non CM) user reports. First signs of prices starting to fall are already here. I think the prime time to buy a new rig will be in February. I personally am awaiting until then to get me a new rig that will be used the following 5 to 6 years. If you can't wait and you find a good deal now then by all means go for it. All that said since I don't personally sport Intel core i5 8600K I can't say for sure how the CM games will run on it. This CPU is the hottest new thing in their CPU line when it comes to money to performance ratio but only when you get it for up to 270 EUR, pay more and the deal is not so sweet - prices are rising for it due to biiig demand. I personally have it eyed myself. Good luck with your purchase.
  12. I agree. From my initial fails I would churn it up to 60-70% meets the point after your arguments. Good job. Oh, I personally have no qualms with the way it is done in the game. I was just basing my observation according to what the Austrian pointed out were the main fails in war games and me merely observing what fails and what doesn't in CM according to how he set the "game rules" up. It would be ok if there wold be a plausible delay in conveying to the player what subsystems were damaged as soon as tank crew would understand what works and what doesn't but it is by no means necessary. OK at least on paper, actual gameplay experience could annoy many. Aaaaaawww, thank you Mord.
  13. Ha, you are right Mord, mostly. I don't fully agree with you. When the vehicle is hit the systems damaged or destroyed are shown almost immidiately while the crew is still reeling from the impact and couldn't have possibly tested all the systems. I would fix this point to "partially right" as per your argumentation. Do you agree? I don't dislike him. I know how I am when I am overloaded with work - not very disposable. 😙😉
