All I see is a room with wallpaper and black featureless  silhouettes of troops with only the uncovered bit of their eyes (and the skeletor mask) visible.

Am baffled re the ideal video settings as in all other ways I have great visuals of CM games on my monitor.



Yup - will work on that.

Here's my perfectly-executed river crossing from Brutal: not a man nor vehicle lost getting over the river under cover of smoke.  Of course it all went a bit downhill after that.

Am curious as to what went wrong after the crossing.  (Was it that all the focus was on the crossing and there was no plan of what to do next?  Or was there nasty unexpected surprises?)

Not really, just the usual CMBS snafus and deadly fire.  I got one of the wagons blown up with the infantry inside from a keyholed position and others were ground down by fire. took a  few risks that didn't pay off. I was able to flush enough of the enemy out to get some more footsloggers safely across one of the bridges further up the river, but the time ran out and it ended in a draw. If I'd had another 15 or so minutes I think I would have won as I was holding most of the objectives.

So just another bloody day at the office 🙂

Yeah...  I have had horrible experiences getting carriers blown up with passengers.  Keep hitting myself to remember (whenever one can) always dismount passengers b4 putting a carrier in harm's way.

Yes, me too.  The problem is it is tempting, and was in the scenario, to rush forward by vehicle into cover in the town buildings before the smoke evaporated then debus. The big road parallel to the river was covered by enemy fire, so men going across on foot copped it too.  Just one of the pleasant command dilemmas we CMBS players love to have.

Not directly related to the game itself, but a small collection of youtube links that might be pretty usefull for people like me who are not very familiar with warfare after WWII. There are probably many more videos out there in the vast spaces of the world wide web, so this list is far from complete.

That is quite a list of videos. Sounds like it warrant's its own thread instead of being in the screen shot thread :)

Could you export and upload your reshader config? Looks great! 

https://www.dropbox.com/s/j7m1arosxuiflpa/Shader profile.7z?dl=0

Just unzip that in your CM game folder...

I have it set up so that "Shift+F1" toggles reshade on & off & that "Shift+B" toggles a border on & off.




I also use the "Advanced War movie shader" for CMBN (the others seem too dark for my system) by BarbaricCo...
