  1. Don't remember where or when, but I recall Steve answering this once. If I remember correctly, he said something along the lines of CMBN being the max they can put into one game before it starts to be overloaded. It makes sense, seeing how much stuff has been crammed into CMBN. Though take this with a grain of salt as I may be misremembering.

    This picture is amazing. Reminds me of wallpapers for the tank sim Steel Beasts.

    Afrika Korps or Early War?

    That's completely understandable, and what I suspected. To play devils advocate really quick, you could make the argument that now that Black Sea is out and they survived the political fallout, that they could do the same for a Yom Kippur War game. Relations between Egypt and Israel are much better now than they were in 1973, though the same cannot be said for Israel and Syria. Still, in the context of the Yom Kippur War, it is certainly more cooled off than the much more contemporary conflict in Ukraine. Worst case scenario Yom Kippur is just too politically volatile to be worth the effort. If that's the case, all the more reason for CM: Fulda Gap instead!

    The state of CMSF2

    Ahh, a fellow cynic! Hope for the best, expect the worst has been a fallback of mine for a good while now. However, there may be a bit more hope than expectant. Check out the interview I just posted in the "CM Update" thread.

    A long delayed update

    @BrotherSurplice made me aware of this interview Steve gave to Rock Paper Shotgun a few days ago. Gave it a read and enjoyed it. Always fun to see what Steve says to other people instead of us forum-goers. There is also a bit of a tease about CMSF2 pre-orders coming "very soon" in the interview. Note: Scroll down past the ship games for the interview https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2018/06/08/the-flare-path-this-and-that/

    Update on Engine 4 patches

    Posted in wrong thread. Doh...

    Afrika Korps or Early War?

    I tend to agree. In fact, a cold war gone hot is the only what-if scenario that interests me for the basis of an entire game. My fanatical want for a CM: Fulda Gap aside, I think a CM: Yom Kippur War would be fantastic as well. After all, it was the first real example of how a modern mechanized war would look like, and formed the basis for many military doctrines, some of which are still used today. Whoops, sorry @Mord, looks like I've thrown another wrench in your thread!

    The state of CMSF2

    Yikes, I hope you're being facetious for all our sakes! I too am hoping that as the engine continues to evolve and improve the sizes of maps increases. The good news is, the precedence for this is good. Maps in CMSF1 were pretty small compared to what is possible now. Hopefully the trend continues and we get continually larger max map sizes. I think its especially important for the modern titles.

    Steve said to expect CMSF2 no later than the end of July. This of course means it will likely be released sometime around the 3rd week of August

    Afrika Korps or Early War?

    1985-1989. It would be easy to do, despite the seemingly large amount of time covered. The date range would allow for a few different TO&E's. For example, in 1985 the US was using mostly a mix of M1 Abrams and M60 Patton tanks, along with mostly M113's with a varying amount of M2 and M3 Bradleys. In 1989, you would have mostly M1A1's and M2/M3 Bradley's. For the Soviets, in 1985 you would have a lot of T-72 variants (B's mostly) and T-64's, and in 1989 you would get mostly T-80 variants (BV's and U's in the shock armies). Of course there would be similar differences between other NATO and Warsaw Pact nations. This is generalized of course (for example, there would be a decent amount of M1IP Abrams mixed into units in both 1985 and 1989) but it gives you an idea of why I would choose this date range. To be clear, I wouldn't argue for a war that would last 4 years from 1985 to 1989, but a range of scenario's happening in that timeframe. That would allow for a lot of flexibility and access to lots of fun toys from each side.

    Typically a Marine Expeditionary Units air wing has both Cobra Gunships and Harriers. There are also Marine Corps squadrons flying F-18's that are part of a carrier air wing. So for a full on opposed landing operation, you could expect all three assets (Cobras, Harriers and F-18s) to be providing support, among other assets such as naval gunfire support, tomahawk strikes, etc.

    Field Artillery officers in the Army are still taught how to use naval gunfire support. Not sure about 13F's though. MANoWAR basically covered it. The Navy only has 127mm deck guns, unless they pull some of the battleships back into service. The 127mm deck guns are capable of providing naval gunfire support, but most naval support comes in the form of tomahawk TLAM missiles or CAS from carrier based aircraft. Generally speaking, the tomahawk is not a tactical battlefield support weapon.

    Cant install Us 2nd Ranger Skin

    I believe so. In order to get the helmets to work, you likely have to rename the model files as well as the texture files. Just curious, why bother going through the effort of making regular infantry wear airborne uniforms when you can just take airborne?

    Afrika Korps or Early War?

    I see nothing wrong with any of this. For me, to answer the original question, I would much rather have Early War over Afrika Corps. I really want CM: Barbarossa. The early war Eastern Front is very interesting to me, and I would love a CM game that covers that time period. I'm much less enthusiastic about an early war Western Front, but that's just me. Either West or East, there would be a lot of fun new toys to play with. Now for my obligatory broken record post on Fulda Gap: I would much rather have Fulda Gap than either Afrika Corps or Early War, but that is just because of my fanatical interest in the Cold War. Plus, who doesn't want to re-create some of the missions from World in Conflict in CM?

    CMFB Campaign: Fields of Tears

    Sometimes the game will "hang" at certain points during loading. It will even appear to be "not responding." However, if you just let the game sit and chug through, usually it will finish loading. My suggestion would be to try loading it up normally again, and just give it a good 5 minutes or so before giving up on it. It might just go through. Also, make sure NOT to click while the game is loading. Just leave the keyboard and mouse completely alone. If you click, it'll trigger the Windows "not responding" overlay and the game won't load.
