    They meant september of next year!

    I love Combat Mission. I will never forget the first time I played CM:BB all those years ago. It was a case of love at first sight. However, the lack of patches and the lack of feedback regarding in-development projects is vexing. A monthly update on the main website or the forums about what is being worked on and how things are coming along would be nice. Also, I think a lot of people would like to see more being done to improve the visual aspects of the engine, like better explosions, more stages of building and vehicle destruction and a greater variation of craters, perhaps based on terrain - i.e. no more earthy craters on paved/concrete roads etc.

    CMSF2 Demo

    And I was at the Battle of Tours in 732.

    Russian army under equipped?

    https://defence-blog.com/army/russian-armata-modern-tanks-production-delayed-due-high-cost.html So it seems the Armata's introduction is being pushed back due to cost and in favor of upgrading T-72s, T-80s and T-90s instead. On one hand, it makes sense to take advantage of the large numbers of these tanks already in the Russian inventory. On the other hand, and if CM:BS is anything to go by, the capacity of these tanks particularly in terms of firepower and targeting but also protection will leave Russia well behind contemporary Western designs like the Abrams, Leopard 2 and Challenger 2. Hell, even the Chinese seem to be getting ahead of these tank models when looking at the performance of the Type-96B in the Tank Biathlon. What do you guys think?

    The state of CMSF2

    You gotta admire the simplicity, robustness, and effectiveness of the RPG-series. Firing an RPG at anyone or anything (unless it's a tank or equipped with ERA) usually doesn't end well.

    Explosion tutorial

    Do you mind telling me what you did in photoshop?
  6. To be fair, most of those problems pertained to CMSF1, it's gotten a lot better with CMBS and CMBN. I also think the CM-series prefer Intel CPUs and Nvidia GPUs, but not sure about it.

    Update on Engine 4 patches

    Is there a CMBS bug thread anywhere? Not sure if it has been reported but the BRM-3K has abug with its co-ax machinegun - the muzzle flash is off-centered.

    The state of CMSF2

    I guess the release date got pushed back with the new website and all?

    Explosion tutorial

    I see. I have now saved it as RGBA bmp What program did you use to make your explosions HerrTom? And how do you get a perfect cut-out of the explosion? (using the magic wand in GIMP I still get blackened parts around the edges of the explosion) I have uploaded what I've got so far here if you want to have a look.

    Explosion tutorial

    Does an explosion tutorial exist? I've been trying to make my own explosions but I can't figure out how to remove black backgrounds.
  11. Which effect/explosion mod is this from?
  12. Which effect/explosion mod are you using?
  13. Oh, perhaps I should have been a bit more specific. I was referring to the Abrams on the previous page.
  14. Did you give a face command or do they face spotted targets automatically?

    Vehicle protection from artillery shells

    Your work is extremely impressive, HerrTom. I hope it makes it into CM one day.
