  1. Send a set-up when you have time. My email is kenfedoroff at comcast.net I am usually on the computer every night for a file/turn or more. Cheers, Ken
  2. Hi All, I still play CMBB and CMAK, but am down to only two pbem opponents right now. If anyone needs an opponent in North America, then I can play. I just got my new computer, so I will be ordering CMSF and CMBN shortly, but will keep playing the old classics... Cheers, Ken
  3. Hi Medex, I am stuck with my old computer rig from 2005 right now (so I haven't even bothered to DL the new CM:BN). I am all over the forums asking questions about what video cards people are using, as I gather information for the purchase of an up-to-date computer and monitor. I just started playing the CMSF demo that has been sitting on my hard-drive since gawd knows when. It looks like fun since it has We-Go (in the demo, at least). I look forward to hearing how the old CMx1 plays with the newer video cards. If they can't handle smoke and weather effects, then that would be disappointing. Everyone has been a great help so far. I am getting an education on new rigs. Cheers, Ken
  4. Hey man... How do you like the your GTS450 with the old CMx1...? Does it do well with CMAK and CMBB...? What kind of a rig do you have to run that...? Sounds nice... Cheers, Ken
  5. Hey Drew, I was considering purchasing the same thing you got...! How is CMAK and the rest of the Combat Mission series working, now that you got your error fixed...? Thanks, Ken
  6. Hi guys, Thanks for all the very down-to-earth advice from everyone. I love this forum. Everyone here has some good ideas that they have acquired through years of experience, and they aren't afraid to share them. btw, the only reason I was sticking with nVidea was because that's what I have in my latest Dell (from 2005) rig, and it is able to generate the fog graphics, etc., for CMx1, that I have heard some graphic cards don't support (not sure about that). I still have a lot of good Combat Mission gaming opponents over at The Blitz site that still play a lot of CMx1, so I want to be able to continue for a while with CMBB and CMAK, while I come up to speed with the new CM:BN. With a new rig, I also might try the CMSF series as well, as the Demo looks interesting, but my rig doesn't support the graphics as well as many of the screen-shots for CMSF that I see posted around this forum site. Thanks again, Ken
  7. Thanks for quick answers, guys. I had good luck with my previous Dells (my current rig is from 2005), so I wondered why some people were so down on their desktops. I wasn't aware that they may have skimped on their components since then, as well as making it more difficult to swap parts for upgrades. Sincerely, Ken
  8. Is there an "off-the-shelf" system you can recommend for the old CMx1, as well as the new CM:BN...? ...or would I be looking at custom gaming machines...? I still like my old CMBB and CMAK, but want to play the new CM:BN, as well... Thanks, Ken
  9. Hi Redwolf, Thanks for the advice on the monitor, Gpu, PSU, etc. Is there any chance you could offer specific "off-the-shelf" examples that would work well with CMX1 and play CM:BN, as well, or would I be looking for an outfit here in Michigan, USA that can custom build a PC...? Am I looking in the wrong place when I look for an "off-the-shelf" solution...? Thanks in advance to all, Ken
  10. Thanks Handihoc. I do play larger battles with lots of units on big maps, so it's good to have an idea of what should work for the next few years. Sincerely, Ken
  11. Thanks Phil, I don't play the heavy-duty first person shooters, But I do want something that can make the old CM scream, and still keep up with CMBN and future add-ons... Best regards, Ken
  12. Hi guys, I'm glad I found this thread. I want to continue to play my old CMBB and CMAK, but am looking to get another mid-range Dell to play the new CMBN, as well. I am looking at a Dell XPS8300 that has the following: Processor: Intel I5-2400 (6MB Cache,3.1 GHz) Operating System: Win 7 Home Premium 64Bit Monitor: ST2220L 21.5-inch Full HD Widescreen Monitor Memory: 8GB DDR3 SDRAM at 1333MHz-4 DIMMS Hard Drive: 1.5TB-SATA-II, 3Gb/s, 7,200 RPM, 32MB Cache Optical Drive: 16X CD/DVD Burner Video Card: NVIDEA GT420 1GB DDR3 Sound: Soundblaster X-Fi Xtreme audio Etc., etc, etc. As I know nothing of computers, and plan on having this new rig, as is, for 5-7 years... Do you think the above system would keep up with the planned modules and upgrades that should come out for CMBN over the next few years...? Any suggestions...? (I've had good luck with Dell so far). Thanks in advance, Ken
  13. Thanks again, guys. I appreciate the input. Sincerely, Ken
  14. Thanks for the input on the flat-screen monitor, guys. I need all the help I can get... Best regards, Ken
  15. Hi guys, Thanks for your help (and quick response). I forgot to ask... when I order my new rig, I want to get a new monitor, as well. I was happy with the 21" flat-screen monitor that shipped with my old Dell, other than it seemed to retain/bleed old terrain images over time. I am considering going bigger (if such a unit exists for the desk-top), but want to avoid any image retention on the screen. Can anyone weigh in with what they are happy with, or perhaps... what I should avoid...? Thanks again, Ken
  16. This thread is interesting to me, as I know nothing about computers. I want to purchase a new new system that will play my old CMBB and CMAK games, but will handle the new Combat Mission game (and make them all scream, as well). Since I play only "We-Go" style Combat Mission (no time for other games), which of the above example is most important for purchasing a new system...? (Bear in mind, other than surfing the web, I don't use my computer for much else). My old Dell is getting long in the tooth, and wonder if anybody offers an off the shelf package suitable for the above. I see Dell offers computers for gamers, but I'm not sure I need alienware type stuff to make it happen. Thanks in advance, Ken
  17. Ugh... my Deadwings are forced to Game-7. This is no place for a nervous person...
  18. Wings carry the fight to Tuesday night in Pittsburgh. Yeah baby...!
  19. Well... my DeadWings have certainly had the Puck-Luck go their way. Lots of lucky bounces off the goalie and goalposts. Several non-calls by the refs, some resulting in scores. The Pens are really getting frustrated. How about that Malkin meltdown at the end of Game-2...? No suspension for instigator, however. Game-3 on the Pens ice should be a barn-burner...! Cheers, Ken
  20. Wings vs. BlackHawks for Western Confernece Final...? Ducks look tired. So do the Canucks... Cheers, Ken
  21. Whew... My Detroit Deadwings found their legs, just in time...! That Duck goal with just 43 seconds into Game-4 could have been a nail in the coffin... but no...! Salute, Ken
  22. Whew...! The Wings escaped with a win in Game-1. The Ducks could have one instead, but for a few lucky bounces... Salute, Ken
  23. Whoa... The Ducks steal two games in the Shark tank...! What's up with that...? Presidents Cup = Kiss of Death...? Cheers, Ken
  24. Hi All, Email problem has been fixed and all turns are out. Give me a shout if I've missed anyone...! Thanks, Ken
  25. I'm having trouble with Comcast and Internet Explorer accessing my e-mail. Please give me a few days while the Comcast tech-people sort this out. Thanks, Ken
