  1. @mjkernerhave you ceased work with this one? I hope that isn't the case; I am oh-so-excited for the mixed uniforms.
  2. Hello, I have been playing via a Hamachi connection with a good friend for a few years now. We played a 2 player turn based game approximately 3 nights ago with no issues to report. However, this evening we attempted to play another match against one another and ran into an issue where the player joining the host is stuck on the "Loading Data" screen perpetually. We tried switching hosts, changing Hamachi networks, tweaking and ultimately shutting down firewall protection completely, all to no avail. Again, both myself and my opponent ran into this specific issue no matter who hosted when things were working just fine a few evenings prior. IP and port are both set correctly, the host can load into the match but again the player joining the host is faced with a never ending "Loading Data" screen. So odd. I was curious to see if anyone had any ideas on potential fixes or what could be going wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Pertinent? information: OS: Windows 10 (both players) Game: Combat Mission Shock Force 2 Both players have the most recently up to date version of Hamachi. We are willing to try just about anything at this point, so any suggestion is more than welcome.
  3. I don't know if it is possible or not, but I was wondering if anyone would be able to add a few woodland DPM tops to the British infantry for a little more variation. There are several photos during this similar time period of infantry wearing woodland tops and desert bottoms. Always thought it would be cool to add. Unfortunately I am horrible at modding thus my request. I love the variation we have now and wanted to expand upon it a little further if possible. If this is not allowed feel free to remove. Here are some reference photos below:
  4. Considering how much variation is seen among Russian troops in terms of what they're wearing in combat, I'm curious as to how they'll be represented in CM Black Sea. If you go through reference pictures within the last several years, you'll see all kinds of crazy different patterns being used by Russian forces. Flora, Digital Flora, Mountain Flora, Izlom, Kamysh, SS-Summer, SMOG pattern, Flecktarn-D, Berezka, various types of Gorka, even multicam these days…etc. From what I understand the game will be set a few years in the future (I think I last read 2017?) so I'm curious, will we be seeing more of a standardized & uniform force or will it be more along the mismatched lines of what we saw during the South Ossetia conflict? The new ability to change appearances would be great if multiple/various camo patterns are included.
  5. I feel stupid, didn't even think of changing the date. Thanks for the advice, all is working now.
  6. I loaded Gustav Line and everything works except both the Polish and New Zealand armies are not playable...anyone have any idea why this is so? Should I try to reinstall or is this the way it is meant to be?
  7. Hi Lockmart, have you tried checking whether or not your running the game with intel integrated graphics? If you go into your NVIDIA Control Panel, you can select 'manage 3D settings'. From there you should have the option of selecting 'Global Settings' or 'Program Settings'. Select 'Global'. Right underneath 'Global Settings' there is text that says 'Preferred graphics processor' with a drop down underneath. The drop down may say 'Auto-Select'. If that is the case, change it to 'High-performance NVIDIA processor', and then apply. Try loading up the game again and see if there is a difference. I had similar problems for almost a year until I discovered this fix. I hope it helps.
  8. When the 3.0 engine is released, will the CMBN and CMFI games we have now be able to be updated in a similar way to the way 2.0 was done? I hope so! I think I'll be playing these games for forever...
  9. Thanks for the links and advice John, I will make a point to get a little more creative with my searches from now on. It is nice to get more of a glimpse into how other people play. I'm seeing some operations where the detail that goes into planning is something I would've never thought of in a million years. Hopefully sometime this evening (but more likely tomorrow) if I get some free time I will film myself playing a QB in turn based mode and afterwards use something to narrate my decisions throughout. Hopefully I can get some feedback from other players on what they see. I have played very little of the campaign so far, mostly due to lack of time and commitment, therefore I find myself playing a lot of quick battles. I play on Iron and in most cases I find myself winning against the AI, but sometimes I wonder if I'm a little too reckless with my men.
  10. Would anyone care to share how they go about filming missions? I just filmed my first video but I feel like it is very jerky - I'm all over the place trying to keep up with the battle. Maybe there's nothing wrong with that, I don't know. It would be nice to hear other peoples tips or opinions.
  11. I have to agree, I think this is a great idea. I actually have been planning on using Fraps to record a few battles and post them up onto youtube and link them here, I just haven't gotten a chance to do it yet. One of the main reasons I'm so into the idea is because I, as a new player, really would like to have people (especially long time players) critique how I go about playing - things I'm doing right, things I'm doing wrong, things I could improve upon, etc. It would be great to be able to watch others play styles as well for the same reason. I know there are a few videos out there, but not a whole lot from what I recall. Shortly before I first started playing CM last February I tried looking up gameplay videos and didn't find too many. It left me on the fence over whether to buy or not until I found the demo which I had somehow overlooked. I'm sure that I'm not the only person who has found themselves in a similar position.
  12. Wow, this looks awesome! Can't wait to try it out, keep up the great work.
  13. How about 1982? I would really love to see CMF...Combat Mission Falklands Korea would be great too though, lots of different forces thrown in the mix.
  14. I have never done a PBEM before but I would be interested if you wouldn't mind explaining how it all works. If not and you're looking for an experienced player I understand
