  1. In a recent game I noticed some of my infantry shooting backwards at dead bodies. During the turn the target line actually flipped over from the target in front of them to what I presume were some dead team members of the target behind me. It was CMFI. Has anyone else seen this?
  2. Ok, I found found the appropriate save, time and fire teams involved. Who wants it?
  3. Thanks for the replies. The chances that there were enemy soldiers behind me is very slim as I had a very thick picket line of troops advancing up a slope through the enemy positions. Every action square covered. There were no kills or surrenders back behind me. I have a save, I just have to find it as it was a H2H game.

    Improvement suggestions

    - cellars - staircases/stairwells - fortified buildings - buildings with internal extended lines of sight (open factories horizontal and vertical) - camouflage (vehicles, guns, men, fortifications) - improved trenches (strong points where you shoot from and maneuver trenches (where you can move out of line of sight)
  5. Try a U.S. PO Box. I have used Shipito in the past. You can often get free postage to the U.S. PO Box and then pay Shipito for the freight.

    Modders: Female Faces?

    I would have thought that anyone who has no disabilities and is motivated could pass the basic physical fitness test to get into pretty much most armies in the world even those from 90's probably even earlier. Whats with this 5% of women Cpl Steiner. Are you saying that women are lacking something required to be in the army other than physical fitness?
  8. On a side note, the manual says "Keep in mind that Ground Conditions can change during the course of a battle. E.g. during a Downpour, ground conditions may change from Wet to Muddy during the battle."
  9. Nice terrain analysis. Look forward to seeing how it works out.

    CMSF2 Demos Released!

    Working well for me playing the USMC scenario on my old PC with an Nvidia 1070 graphics card.

    Lovely AFV pic from Italy

    Semovente, looks like it might be the clover leaf of the 71st Infantry Division on the front right.

    CMFI Rome to Victory Bones

    It is a shame. I gather the Greeks who fought in Italy would have been armed in a similar manner to Commonwealth troops given their previous close relationship in Greece and North Africa. The earlier Greco-Italian War in 1941 is to early for the current set of CM games. Years ago, I did play an old Close Combat mod that featured this war. I really enjoyed it but it crashed at a certain point for me. From memory the Italian forces in that mod felt a lot like the Italians in CMFI.

    game crashes after some time playing

    Yes, Windows 7 and I have had it. Two recently in Red Thunder, one without any mods loaded. Mostly after leaving it sitting around for a while. Geforce 1060 with 398.36 drivers (old i7 CPU)

    Max screen resolution...

    Sorry mate, just seen your post above. 😁 I did not edit the game file at all, just use the Display Size where I used the Desktop setting, graphics usually set at Best/Best.
  16. Not familiar with the battle/campaign. Sherman's against Panther, I would try to get flank shots. I hit one over thirty times on the front in a recent battle and it was still going.

    Max screen resolution...

    No problems. Zoom works fine but... I think what kinophile said is correct with regards to the monitor. You will still get lag. I don't think it will improve performance of CM. You get a widescreen with lots of pixels.

    It the Acer Predator X34, an UltraWide 34in curved display, 3440 x 1440 resolution. With UI mod CMBN: Unmodded CMFB:

    Max screen resolution...

    I play at 3440 X 1440 resolution and in my opinion the UI is fine. I am not exactly a spring chicken either. 📼 If you have played the game a lot you know what to look for. They only issue I have had is with a mod which shows the wounded in a certain way but there are alternatives for this. I would not go back.
  20. At the start of a recent multiplayer game I recently purchased units for a quick battle but when I went into the battle setup some of the units were missing. For example, there was a flamethrower team that did not appear. Is this because I have the CMBN vehicle pack which I understand included flamethrower teams but my H2H opponent does not?
  21. Yes, 4.00. No, my opponent set it up.
  22. After painstakingly compiling a few German helmet mods (thanks to the modders for these), I have not been able to get them to show correctly. Also, it appears to me that there may be a problem with the stock installation/files as follows: 1) the stock helmet "smod_german_helmet-soldier 5.bmp" never appears in game. Also numbers 6 and 7 also never appear, they are near duplicates of 1 and 2 so it is hard to tell for sure. The screenshot below from a test shows that stock German helmets 5, 6 or 7 never appear. 3) I also note in the stock files there is a "smod_german_helmet-soldier 1.bmp". Normally the numbering of 1 is never used. Perhaps this is the problem and only limits the number of German helmets to 4 in total. These files are in the 2.0 data file. I have checked this across three installations on my system, a fresh v 3.12, a borked v 4.0 and a fresh 4.0. Had the same issue. Is anyone else able to get german helmets to show from 5+ in CMBN?
  23. Based on my limited testing it appears that the number of textures is directly related to "3D Texture Quality" setting. "Best" allowed me to view all of the stock textures and all of the textures I had in the mod directory.
