  1. Hello bobo,

    Interested in playing CMBN, FI, or RT, up to Reinforced Company, Meeting, QB's.

    I also use Dropbox for Game File exchanges, and can do 1-2 turns daily.


  2. After this little interaction, I can't see NOT taking a JT as a German in quick battles. Of course mine will get flamed by a first shot kill from a still unseen American... bobo
  3. I have had many of those turns. Minus the good planning.... thanks for an excellent AAR as usual. bobo
  4. YOU ARE IN THE WRONG THREAD!!!! POST HERE! http://www.battlefront.com/community...d.php?t=116220 Thank you! Bobo
  5. While I happily have multiple RT, BN, and FI games ongoing I will probably sit this one out. Too close to real life events for me. I had a similar problem with CMSF when we were losing folks in Iraq every day and even now don't fire it up because of the in progress civil war. I am sure it will be a good game and successful and fun to play but maybe in a few years for me. Bobo
  6. I don't think that the Sturmtiger is available in May 1944 historically so the same is true in the game. Earliest it is available is August 1944 after a quick check. You can make it available (ahistorically of course) by setting the date to August 1944 in the Parameters section of the scenario while you are editing it. Select the Sturm Tiger and then set the date back to what you wanted and viola you can have any unit about whenever you want. Even Sturmtigers in 1941. Coolio. Hope this helps. Bobo
  7. Not sure that it helps but I am running great on a Inspiron 8200 with almost the same specs as you except for the 64MB nvidia card. Maybe you can return the 4150 and get a 8200? That was one of the reasons that I went with the Dell was the return policy. Good luck, Bobo
  8. Yep to both, but the same setup worked great with CMBO just the previous weekend. Bobo
  9. Greetings, I have found that if I enter into a fresh CMBB session and immediately (ie do nothing else) try to join a TCP/IP session I will get a complete system lock up that is only recoverable with Ctrl-Alt-Del. If I start a scenario first and then exit and start a TCP/IP no lock up. So I am doing that. I am running WindowsME, PIII 700MHz laptop. I am also now having trouble connecting to TCP/IP games on CMBB after no troubles with CMBO. I don't think that anything has changed has it? Bobo
  10. Schrullenhaft, I did disable and then reinstall Zone Alarm. The key was enabling port forwarding on the linksys router that I had installed. It works now. Just in time. Thanks for the help. Bobo
  11. I did what you suggested with ZoneAlarm and no luck connecting. I disabled ZoneAlarm and no luck. I can ping IPs that are hosting, but CM will not connect. Is there any other way to debug this problem? No IP and CMBB coming :-(. Bobo
  12. Nope. I am running Window ME still. Haven't been blessed with XP yet. Bobo
  13. Greetings, I am having problems connecting to others to play IP games in CMBO and probably CMBB demo as well. I am on a cable modem and have played at least one game on TCP/IP but I believe that was before I installed ZoneAlarm. I am able to ping known open game IPs, but CM will always repond with a cannot connect to IP error. I have tried disabling ZoneAlarm but no luck. Any suggestions? Thanks, Bobo
  14. Schrullenhaft, You paint a depressing picture for transparency on a laptop. For anyone else that may be interested in laptop CMing as I am, Dell offers a 32MB 4X AGP NVIDIA GeForce2 Go video card on the Inspiron 8000 line. Will it give you transparency? I am not sure. If anyone out there buys one or has one for work and can verify transparency on one of those laptops I would be thankful. I probably will buy one of those near the end of the year (assuming I can pay for my wedding and a new laptop). I know, I know, just buy a desktop. Sadly that doesn't fit my needs. Thanks for th
