  1. From what I have read this might be an upgrade to avoid as older PC might not be able to handle it. I will stick with 10 until I am forced to migrate.
  2. My memory of the barracks was my only visit to play in a wargame at the club there. A fun game with multiple players aside. I will see if I have any photos. Everything changes...
  3. Hope you enjoyed it, decent turn out by the looks. You can see the show on YouTube. The Japanese HaGo is worth a look as never seen a runner.
  4. Well looks like it is just down to peaceful protests to oust the Taliban forces, I am sure that will work out well for those brave folk holding banners... What a sad story for those left...
  5. BTW for those not subscribed to Mark Felton he has a good quick overview on former Afghan army Interesting watch for me...
  6. BBC earlier had title saying it was going against them, headline now changed to more neutral tone. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-58443679 They are under severe pressure.
  7. I would not want to work in that office, a bit too much pressure to perform.
  8. BTW the British REME built that Panther after the end of WW2, or supervised the Germans doing the real work. Mark Felton just released a video about the "British" built Panthers
  9. Integration is never straightforward or easy...
  10. BTW thanks for the first hand accounts always useful to read, of course it is just one person's perception so has to be weighed with other sources before a model is created and maybe tweaked... One of the many things I love about this site is these 1st hand accounts. I would love to hear more about the Warsaw Pact POV and perhaps those from East Germany or former Soviet Bloc countries will pop by to explain about the Saggers crap points? If they ever got to test fire them?
  11. I can just imagine the quartermaster when the #hit hits the fan and the Russian's invade saying don't issue those old munitions as they are past their best before date... Just sayin....
  12. You can rest assured that everything is crappy as humans and organisations are involved. The beauty with freedom is that we stand a chance of highlighting the crap to have a better chance of it being slightly less crap than those that can not talk about how crap their stuff is.
  13. Btw those be Oranges when the OP is talking Apples which is pretty relevant to actual game play....
  14. The clip you posted is not working for me so still not seen any firing? There was acknowledgement that there was military test firing away from the ship, but that could be obfuscation by the British?
  15. Another observation is that the server saves the final turn of a game so you can review, but it seems that after a period of time this is deleted, so you lose your history of who you played and the final turn is deleted to save server space I guess. The automated league / tournament system works well and shows folks progress as turns are uploaded. https://www.slitherine.com/tournaments/scores/604
  16. So another tidbit on the support process for PBEM++ Today 1st reported at7:30am server down, so no ability to play PBEM at all. - Numerous players have posted - Just the designer RBS responded on behalf of whole of Slitherine saying it is being looked into. Finally able to get back on at 3:30pm - No update from the Tech team saying it is fixed (as of yet...) I just happened to try it again to see if it was working... I am not sure how often this happens, but another thing to be aware of when playing via the system...
  17. I have just started using the Shadow Play Geoforce feature with my Nvidia card, software free with card. Dead easy to use, good results, and you can set it up to like a dashcam to record last 5 minutes by just hitting a function key so it is working in background even if you don't hit record. So if you have it that was easy option for me...
  18. Yes. Your memory is good.. I had all the original modules.
  19. I would agree this would be useful for the game and a good sales feature, mind you they would have to ensure the grammar police checked it out before publishing!!!
  20. Hi not sure what Video Card you have but I was looking for a solution to FOG2 not having a replay function and it was an easy solution I found which puts me on track to becoming a youtuber!! Alt F9 to start recording and Alt F9 to end recording, free software came bundle with my Nvidia card. I even have it set up so that if I am not recording and I see an Ohh Wow moment I can just hit record last 5 minutes... Bit like a dashcam working always... Geoforce Experience is the software. Shadow Play Here let me introduce a young someone using it for something I would (can no longer play)... So for CM to introduce something that is pretty well done already would IMO be a waste of their time which could be spent on the next engine or an Early War module with French Tanks!!!
  21. Nope your money your choice, there are a certain group of us reliving our youth and we have the time and money to do so, soon we will be superceded by the next generation who will do the same. For me the tie in with Slitherine allows Charles and Steve to have an exit plan from the business and if they can get a youngster involved who has the same passion the series might continue onwards. Also the tie in with the military helps keep the game engine alive in the future years... So a win win for everyone.
  22. I am not going to derail the thread further, but some folk need some education and a better understanding which I am happy to help with off line...
  23. I had to leave the video before Bil appeared, just got back in so will be nice watch later.
