    Max screen resolution...

    @Hardradi No worries. I appreciate that you took the time to respond.

    Max screen resolution...

    I set it up the same way I had with the previous monitor... by editing the game data file. It's okay. The graphics for the battlefield(trees, vehicles, etc) is what I expected. The ability to see the whole battlefield without scrolling is the biggest plus. I just wish the UI wasn't so "muddled". It's certainly readable, but not enjoyable to look at. I realize the game isn't designed to scale to this resolution. It just seemed that from his screenshots, the UI looked better than what I am seeing on my setup. Figured by asking, he might reveal his setup just in case there is a setting I might have missed...

    @Hardradi I finally got my new computer & monitor. How did you setup the game resolution? Did you leave the display setting at "desktop"...or go into the game data and manually write in "3440 X 1440"??

    Max screen resolution...

    @Hardradi Lol...that is the same one I am looking at getting! Well...it looks great from these pics...but...what's your impression? Any problems? Does it get worse when you zoom in...or stay crisp looking? What about screen lag as it re-draws trees in the distance while zooming around?

    Max screen resolution...

    @Muzzleflash1990 @Erwin @RepsolCBR Really appreciate all of you for responding! I'm going to read up online about running 2 monitors at different resolutions off of 1 video card. Otherwise... I will have to "pass" on getting the wide-screen, ultra resolution, monitor this cycle. 😢 I'm not willing to give up Combat Mission...
  6. It's about that time to upgrade my computer setup(over 6 years old). I'm considering moving up from my 24" monitor to one of the 34" widescreen ones. It isn't a 4K one...but it offers 3440 X 1440 resolution. Of course, I will get a graphics card that can support it(probably Nividia GTX1080). My question is...what is the max resolution anyone has gotten with CM: Black Sea? It's the only game I even play these days. All the flashy new FPS games that are perfect for those ultra high resolution displays are of no interest to me. Right now I am using a 1920 X 1200 display and the game works fine(sometimes a little slow to refresh trees, etc but definitely playable). Has anyone had problems getting the game to play with newer graphics cards? Any insight on personal experiences with getting the game to play on the more modern equipment that has come out in the past 2-3 years would be appreciated...
  7. No offense but this is "old news". They made this announcement months ago. What is frustrating isn't your post...it's that their "urgent upgrade" isn't going to get deployed till 2020! So much wasted time already on this. For the cost of 1 or 2 F-35's we could have paid the Israelis to "rush" installation on 1 or 2 actual units and had them in service NOW! Just venting...

    Question about Javelin use...

    It's a PBEM game. The problem is...I would have to also send you my password for you to open it.

    Question about Javelin use...

    @Sgt.Squarehead@c3k @John Kettler @MikeyD It finally happened a 2nd time...and this time I remembered to take a screenshot! This is a radio operator from a 3 man FO team who performed "medic" and recovered the Laser Designator(even though he still cannot call in fire!). Any clue as to why the game program does this, even though he is not permitted to use that equipment??

    Question about Javelin use...

    Thanks John That would be my expectation too. I understand that the TO& E of the Stryker scout teams doesn't give them Javelins so I "stole them" from the other vehicles. It was just weird to me that, in addition to being unable to get the scouts to actually USE them, visually examining the soldiers up close, didn't even show them being carried! But any carried AT-4s showed up on their backs just fine. I am of the opinion that it was a random glitch. Maybe some byte of data just got "misplaced" during the loading of the game.
  11. Now it was used in combat too? What combat was it deployed in?? You chose the word "combat"...and since it was only used by the Soviet Naval Infantry...what conflict were they involved in?? The picture you provided only showed 1 vehicle...in a "clean" motor pool configuration...with no indication that it was "in theater" or any signs of "combat". No gear hanging off it. Not even a single crew member standing nearby! You ARE correct that it was "operational". You have yet to show that it was "deployed in combat". Words...they "cut" both ways. I know what you meant...just as you knew what I meant when I said "plausible"
  12. Yes...I only have CM:BS. Had to google CM:A. I stand corrected that there IS a version of the game where that equipment was definitely plausible. And "technically" you are correct that an APS system was operational...for a very short time. My statement was too far reaching. I should have said..."Show me another army that CURRENTLY has deployed APS..." I concede the point to you even if you knew what I was trying to get across.
  13. Yup! I hope you understood that I am in no way faulting you guys in my statement above. I am agreeing 100%.
  14. Bahahaha!! You did read the whole article didn't you?? Look... "The project was abandoned by the Army, but completed by the Soviet Naval Infantry to increase protection for about 250 older T-55 tanks in 1981–82 " Last time I checked...there are NETHER T-55s or Russian Naval Infantry in this game...not to mention that the game isn't called "Height of the Cold War: Soviets vs NATO 1980's"! Lol "Drozd APS was later replaced by the simpler non-APS Kontakt-5 explosive reactive armour."..."AND... It was subsequently discontinued." Thanks for doing the research to support my argument for me... But hey...I would actually prefer that the Russians HAD deployed some sort of APS system in their Army, because I want to feel the game is justified in giving that side the option to "buy" APS if wanted. Why (and not the US side?)? Because the US already has a weapon that defeats it...the Javelin. And pretty much every squad has one.
  15. Ahhhh...you going to have to show me some proof for that. I have been "arguing" on here for awhile that until CM:BS adds a module that brings the Israelis into the mix, all arguments about APS being realistically deployed by the vehicles in the game are worthless. Show me ANY other military that has operationally DEPLOYED APS on their combat vehicles? NOT "in testing" or "soon to be added". The US Army has been "promising" to buy a system for years...and yet we still aren't any closer than "in testing"! Here is my proof..."The service made a decision to buy Trophy for Abrams on Sept. 29, Dean said, and now the Army is moving out to deploy the systems to Europe by 2020." https://www.defensenews.com/digital-show-dailies/ausa/2017/10/09/europe-bound-army-to-urgently-field-abrams-tanks-with-trophy-active-protection-system/ "...deploy the system...by 2020" ...is NOT a valid argument that the US(or any side) should have it available in the game that we have been playing for the past couple of years. It is also why you won't ever see me "buy" APS for my vehicles during QB. I am not faulting the game designers for including it when they created the game(~2015 I think) because it probably seemed like the sort of development that the US military(and the Russians) would have recognized as needed. But people keep forgetting that military procurement is "glacially SLOW!!" So...just like the back-n-forth on whether the Armata should be included next...until someone shows me pics of an operational unit (say company size or up) in the US military that has APS installed...I'm going to say "NO WAY!" P.S. I double checked on the US Marine Corps b/c I know sometimes they "cut through red tape" quicker, but "no" they haven't purchased it operationally yet either. http://defense-update.com/20160415_army-marine-corps-want-to-test-israels-trophy-aps-again.html
