  1. Apple's web site has highlighted WWII oriented games on their games section and Combat Mission is included. Apples website:web page Notice the caption under the Combat Mission screenshot says: 'Close Combat:' Woops.

  3. What Caliber is the MG42HMG & MG42LMG? To answer the question, the MG42 HMG and LMG are .0312 caliber. (7.92mm)
  4. Just FYI, Rob/1 (panzerman) is on vacation. Not sure if he has computer access.
  5. I am with Compassion on this. The Geforce 3 is a bit overkill for CM when looking at the price. The 32mb Geforce 2 is about the ideal card for CM. The Geforce 3 should come down in price at about the same time of CM2BB release, so it might be a good idea to wait it out a little bit.

  7. Hey, lets not get carried away here...Tiger has made some damn good mods. Specificaly his Panther G late and his Panther A mods are classic CM mods in the mod community. The Panther G especially in my mind has yet to be surpassed! It is still is on my HD and as far as I can see is not being taken off ! Well, anyway, I think Tiger did a great job modding. Better then MOST, in my opinion. Yeah his sherman was surpased by Marco's version (how can a mod get any better then that!) but I believe that Tigers original sherman mod was out way before Marco's. I should know, I had them installed for a

  9. <BLOCKQUOTE>quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by jshandorf: Depends on what you mean by "turn in place". It can lock one track and spin the other, so in essence it would be almost in one place turning. The panther, Tiger, and later models could put one track in reverse and one in forward. So in effect they could spin in place. It wasn't until the Pershing, I think, that an allied tank could do this. jeff [ 07-31-2001: Message edited by: jshandorf ]<HR></BLOCKQUOTE> Thats it, thanks for the the correction. I knew it had something to do with the

  12. Are there any left? Lycos is nice, but it doesn't allow linking. Any ones that are still out there for free? Best Ragards Freak. [ 07-31-2001: Message edited by: Freak ]
  13. <BLOCKQUOTE>quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by David Aitken: Vehicle rotation speed was reduced in an update to CM, because tanks were programmed to rotate both their hull and turret to an AT threat, thus bringing the gun to bear as fast. This is a problem with unturreted vehicles, because they take forever and a day to bring the gun round, especially if they are ambushed from the rear. There is a slight bug, in that a tank which spots an enemy AT asset at the end of a turn, will not continue rotating its hull in the next turn unless ordered. Also, one must keep in min
