  1. It seems to be an issue with the new hardware of today. - Go to Computer / - Local disk C: or similar, varies upon computer. This is where your game files are saved. If you have trouble finding this, right click the launcher shortcut you have on your home screen and select 'open file location'. This will take you to the next step. - Program Files (x86) / - CMBB (your game files) / - Right click the launcher called 'Barbarossa to Berlin' and select properties. Paraphrasing - Computer / Local disk C: / Program Files (x86) / CMBB - right click CMBB and select properties. Select compatibility, and tick the box for 'run this program in compatibility mode for:' Select the Windows XP (Service pack 3) option. Additionally tick the box below 'run this program as an administrator'. Then, launch the game and once in a mission, alt-tab out of the game, and then alt-tab back in (this is minimizing the game, and then reopening it). I know this sounds weird but if you do this every time you enter a mission you wont suffer any issues with extremely low frame rates or similar issues, and it takes a few seconds to do. Good luck - xXmush. Apologies to you people with a bit more knowledge about file directories and such. I made an easy to follow guide that people of all generations and level of PC knowledge can understand :). I would imagine quite a few people of all ages would enjoy the tactical masterpiece and historical recreation that is the Combat Mission games. I have loved them ever since I was a kid, and was really sad at first when these games didn't seem to run on newer operating systems.

  3. Is this the latest version, because the scenario editor guide says i can refer to the manual for building commands, however this manual includes nothing on commands or how to use the editor?

    Russian army under equipped?

    Haha yeah, thought that seemed a little extreme. It was like 5 in the morning tho. Just looked it up then. 3.8 trillion is the US budget period, for everything. Yes your figures are a lot more accurate. Russia's military budget is still drastically smaller than the US military's. Russia (2016 est.) - 90 billion USD. Their active personnel number 770,000 while the US number 1,300,000. Russia does have more reserve personnel - 2,000,000 against Americas - 850,000. But Russia only has more because it has mandatory military service at the age of 20 for 12 months, so their reserve personnel are largely basic militia and home guard. The US reserve personnel are largely still highly trained and well equipped.

    Russian army under equipped?

    Just because all Russian soldiers may have the rig, does not mean they will have all the equipment available such as GPS, Laser systems, Long range radio, Night vision etc and be experienced enough to use it. The US military has a budget of 3.8 trillion dollars per year and is larger in personnel than the next 5 largest military's combined. They have had active military engagements constantly ever since the 2nd World War, having hundreds of thousands of combat experienced soldiers. they even had a huge military direct conflict recently with both Gulf Wars. There's a reason the US military is superior.... I do see where you are coming from however. This equipment they are talking about is all very expensive and only the best of the Russian troops would most likely be equipped and trained in it all. Maybe in game some of the Russian special forces units deserve to have more advanced systems added. This would mean they would have a mix of old and new equipment and in my opinion be more realistic.

    I don't want refund, I want my life back

    lol its just a promotion for CMBS winter mod. THe only thing I can agree on is its too easy to make a wrong command, like u order a HQ and a company on the other side of the map charges into the open, and infantry spotting is a little under powered. The rest of the games great however and lol favors one army (the US) that's just real life.
