  1. Just realized I haven't been keeping up on this for those who follow here instead of youtube. Sorry, the holidays have been insane. Y'all shipped a BILLION packages this year.

  2. Here's another one I've been ruminating on for quite some time now: If you're going to drive your vehicle Slow, ask yourself why you're not driving Fast instead. If you can't think of a reason, why not do it?

  3. See title. Anyone else got simple advice for new players? Here's a short list of mine: Do not get shot at. Shooting makes you easier to see. Cover arcs are not magic. Maybe allow your troops to wait a minute before flogging them onto their objectives. Don't call in that airstrike. No seriously, don't. It'll hit your own guys. It doesn't matter how thick your armor is. You don't assault a position by running straight into it. Use more ammo, you don't get bonus points for frugality. Limit your leaders exposure. Split your squa

  7. Well some of them will take German uniforms and play the role of the opposing force during the next drill in the evening. I have a feeling, that just a tea will not be enough. They better find some schnapps

  9. Yeah maybe they were happy those tanks didn't shoot back, so a bit of rough driving wasn't something they would moan about i guess 😁

  10. Hi, everybody. I'm a returning player in СM2. Playing in CMBN and found one effect. Textures in the game that are located at some distance are not loaded immediately. And some simplified version is pre-displayed. Very spoils the impression of the game. Is it possible to fix this somehow? Perhaps by modifying some files? I play with some graphics mods, but the situation is the same without them. I tried different graphics settings, but nothing helped. I used to play СM2 on an AMD video card and I don't think there was such a thing. Thanks for the help.

  11. Depends on contract details between battlefront and some unknown party, which could be developer 'Apeiron' (rip), production fund 'Snowball Connection' (rip) or publisher 1C (still kicking). The latter was also owner of both 'apeiron' and 'snowball connection'. Also for history sake, official trailer (probably was already posted somewhere here...)

  12. Nice video. I was expecting a rude comment from the tank commander to the driver when the last tank went into that hole in the ground. But I guess the commander was in his seat too busy chomping on a chocolate bar.

  14. Going out on a limb here, but I don't imagine many of the UK folk on this forum voted for the fiasco aka Brexit. To do so you would likely be incapable of playing a game like CM, but also you would be unlikely to be interested in history.

  15. Why not send her some Irving Welsh novels too? "I’m afraid there must be some mistake, Rents sais. The rid-heided **** kin be quite ****** stylish, ah huv tae gie um that; he’s goat style. — There were no cards to indicate a seat reservation when we boarded the train at Edinburgh." I found that quote here: https://dspace.ut.ee/bitstream/handle/10062/57592/priimets_ma_2017.pdf?sequence=1&isAllowed=y Which amused me.

  16. On or off map if you only call for smoke some HE rounds will still be available (if it had HE to begin with I think there is one UK on map mortar that only has smoke). What you describe sounds like how off map artillery/mortars work. In my experience most on map mortars will have several smoke rounds left over after the HE is gone. Below is a description of how off map mortars work and sounds like what you are describing. Maybe some on map mortars work the same way? As @chuckdyke said it would be useful to know the game and type of mortar unit you are referring to. Off map ar

    Welcome to 2021!

    Actually, His Dead Puritanical Majesty is my major source of culture and example of how to proper talk right good. I was actually mesmerized (horrified?) by the videos he linked where some crazy bald fat dude sang about his new 'motor' and his Doc Martin boots. Maybe it was middle of the night in Blighty and his mind was obforscated or some such.

    Stop Getting Shot At

    First rules 1 -Wait until the children are at school or in bed 2 - Wait for your wife to watch television or pour a sleeping pill in her glass. If she resists and tells you about her colleague who put on her green necklace with the blue dress, yes, the one she wore when on her birthday and you should remember it given the way you looked at her (don't answer the trap) it's lacks taste especially since she wore it with the red shoes the same as she saw that she had copied and besides the green necklace will go well with the her dress of the same color (message to grab) and then also

  21. The family cat. It happened just before Christmas 1944 during the 'Honger Winter' (Dutch Spelling). The cat scratched on the door came inside with a beautiful piece of beef (Eye Fillet). The only place he got it from was the German Naval Base. The picture of Santa which became his new name always had a place of honor in our living room. A raid by definition is to destroy or seize something the enemy values. Santa fulfilled this criterion in my opinion.

  22. Just read the books, Frodo. I agree that calling people with another opinion fascists will cost you less time and probably make you feel better, but from reading books you'll learn more. 😉 Apart from that movies like this aren't just good fun, but must be seen in the context of what's happening in Russia. Glorifying war and prepare people for another, are never a good sign when used by a dictator. And you can bet movies like this are sponsored by the same propaganda machine.

  23. Perhaps for a change a movie can be made by Russians about the tens of millions of innocent and defenceless people that died because of communism, Soviet occupation and Stalin's malice, the misery and cruelty in the unspeakable Gulag concentration camps, the blind terror of the NKVD, both in Russia and Eastern Europe that destroyed millions of lifes, the deportation of millions of Russians, Estonians, Latvians, Poles, Hungarians, Germans, Rumanians and many other nationalities, the murder by starvation upon millions of Ukrainians etc etc etc instead of glorifying a war for which the Russians t

  24. Heya, I'm not quite sure, but I think the Panzerfaust 3 model seems a little to big. At least I don't remember it to be this big when I was in the army, even when extended for the tandem warhead.

  25. @Lethaface, you know @LXGTR might be onto something here. The largest length of a loaded PzF3-IT that I found is reported as 1.35m - so let's assume that's what we should have in game. From that we have the following: Seems like a rather below average height German pixeltroopen to me. Wikipedia lists "average human height" as 1.7m - from that it does seem the PzF3 is in fact 30% too large. Here's a fairly similar side-by-side of CMSF2 and real life. Granted it's not the "IT" model on the right, however the launch tube should be fairly close in size across the PzF

  26. M1903/M1917 vs M1 effectiveness depends more on the area of operation (AOO) and whether in defense or advance. When you’re in a defensive position with an open 1000 yard field of fire, the bolt actions are going to be more effective than the M1. That’s the type of fire for which they designed. When assaulting or defending in forested areas, urban areas, or other areas with limited ranges, the M1 takes the lead. During those assaults, soldiers and Marines learned to effectively fire from the hip. In those situations, the M1903, M1917, and K98 simply couldn’t match the M1, so that would put the
