  1. Here is a bit more information for anyone who has the time to try and solve this. Firstly, I have an HP W22 monitor, Geforce GT740, Windows 10, and a powerful PC. I have been playing this game for many years (Since CMBO first came out) without any problems. The problem started when I got the GT740 AND Windows 10. I got a message from GE Force Experience that I have to update driver for Windows 10 to 355.60 which I did. I have tried literally hundreds of settings on the Nvidia control panel, Killing the prefs file every time, the thing that keeps occurring is that at start up the only option
  2. Still trying to get CMAK run at 4.3 resolution

  3. I have a scaling problem not mentioned here - the only option I get after killing the prefs file is 1280 X 1024 at 75 Hz. This results in filling my wide screen monitor (1680 X 1050) with awful looking Squat units. - I have to ALT/TAB in order for graphics to run properly (Very slow if I do not do this) I set the Nvidia GT 740 to no scaling and Monitor to control scaling. If I try to set the GPU to control scaling, I then get an option of 1280 X 1024 at 60 Hz and the splash screen looks great at the 4:3 ratio. BUT after ALT/TAB to get graphics to run everything locks up. Anyone got any
  4. Update - I think my CMBO is loading it's BMP files from the CD instead of from the BMP folder on my PC - anyone know why this might be and how to fix it (Load files from BMP folder in the CMBO location on my PC)
  5. Hello, I know this question has bee asked and answered a million times, but I still can't find a solution. Like others I was forced to upgrade from my trusty XP to Windows 8.1, I got a new computer also. When I try to play CMBO all I get is "Mushy" graphics, Gridded grass just looks like pea soup?? When restarting with pref file deleted I only get 2 resolution options, then on the third "Next" the screen and computer freeze and I have to re-start. Restart gives same results. PC has a GeForce GT740, driver is (Latest as og April 2015). While of the subject, my CMAK wor
  6. Hello, I know CMAK is getting "Long-in-the-tooth", but I and a few contacts still love to play it. It is getting veryu hard to fine opponents, so if anyone reading this thread is interested in playing please let me know. Thanks
  7. Hello, I have a few opponents for CMBO and CMAK, but they, like me are trying very hard to find people to play against. If anyone reads this post and know of anyone interested in playing please let me know via this thread or email me at awillis@berkshire.rr.com
  8. Does antone still play CMAK, or am I the only one left??? I have searched high and low for opponents but can't find anyone. If someone reading this post knows where I can find opponents I would love to hear from you. Reply to awillis@berkshire.rr.com
  9. I still love to play CMAK, but just can't find opponents anymore - anyone here interested???
  10. Hello, like many others I am being pressured into going from my good old XP OS to windows 8. Are there any reasons why I can't play my CMBO and CMAK on a Windows 8 system?
  11. After all these years of playing I can't believe I am asking this question!! Engineers can destroy mines by just sitting near them, but how the heck do you find mines. By playing the Computer I found mines when a tank went over them and was knocked out, so now I know excatly where the mines are. Went back a turn, halted the tank and had a bunch of engineers walk the area to look for them - nothing found !! I walked the area with just about every unit possible - no-one finds the mines ?? Does this mean that we have to have mines blow up on our units before we know where they are. If that'
  12. OK, so I got it as good as it gets, that's fine - thanks.
  13. Hi guys, I took your advice and got a new power supply (Antec Truepower Trio 430 W) and a BFG GeForce 7950 GTOC with 256 MB. Man what a difference !!! I am seeing things on a Tiger I never saw or noticed before, the little machine gun and periscope slot for example. I can fly around the battlefield as smooth as can be, no jerkyness at all - Its' great !!. One question - my 22" wide format monitor runs at 1680 X 1050, when I fire up CMAK after deleting pref file the highest choice I get is 1280 X 1040, this give me a center square to play in - it's OK just wondered why I don't get the "Native
  14. The power supply they put in is a 300W A/Open brand model FSP300-60GT The 12V is rated at 12.0A Seems like this might be a bit underpowered ??
  15. Thanks for the inforamtion Schrullenhaft - as I now have a really good rig (1GB PC3200 RAM, P4 processor at 3.4 Ghz) I don't want to skimp on the graphics card. So maybe $250 - $300 for a PCE graphics card for CM playing, what would you suggest for that kind of money.
