  1. Hi gentlemen, I was absent since a long time on this forum and, recently, just discovered the new layout of the whole thing. Probably due to my lack of perseverance, but I didn't manage to make the "search" function running well with me... So here is my situation, and questions. I just upgrade my home computer to a new Imac G5 (20 inches model, intel core 2 duo processor) with the "Leopard" mac OS X system. Questions : 1/ Is there some players here that have managed to play CMBB (or CMAK) on this kind of computer ? How did they managed to do that ? 2/ The mac version of CMBB is not supported on mac OS X. Is there a solution to run this game version on mac OS X ? 3/ Finally, I wonder if the solution is to install Windows on the mac (via "Bootcamp" or a virtualization software like "VMWare"), and play a PC version on CMBB this way ? Any help ? Thanks for your advices and experiences !
  2. Hi all, Found this serie of pictures of another T34 wreck found somewhere in Russia. Seems that the vehicle is in good condition, unfortunatelly, the website (which is crap...)doesn't provide any informations except the pics If someone could find more informations about this tank... ...that could be interesting !
  3. Ok, problem solved ! The conflict was due to Netmeeting application. Its setup automatically launched the software when starting Windows. And therefore, it was impossible to launch the 3D acceleration. Thank you for your help
  4. Hi all, I'm very surprised today when trying to launch CMBB ! When double-clicking on the shortcut, the screen goes black, asking to me my resolution preferences. It's all the more strange that I've installed and patched CMBB (and CMAK too) almost a year ago and I have ran both games without any problem before that very day ! So now, the computer wants me to select a resolution preference in "Software Mode" with a screen resolution of 640 x 480 (or something). I've only got the choice between 3 resolutions, with only a difference about Hz frequency. 2 things possible here : 1/ I choose a resolution and click "Ok". Then the screen goes black again and I can heard the intro music. And by pressing the spacebar, I've got an error message. 2/ I skip to the other choice, and after the 3 possibility, I come back to the desktop with a "Could not initialize 3D graphics" error box. Here are my specs : HP Compaq nx8220 Win XP Pro with SP2 ATI Mobility Radeon X600 (driver Everything ran smoothly before. I suspect my installation of a webcam to corrupt something :confused: PS : same problem for CMAK.
  5. Hi MikeyD, wonderfull job, as usual ! It was a long time since I downloaded something at cmmos.com. Now, I know what to do ! About the polish captured version marking, shouldn't it be "Polska" instead of "Poland" ? I wonder if those courageous Poles wrote the name of their country in english rather than in their native language...? :confused:
  6. I don't post so often , but I really want to thank Bigduke for these precious informations. That is the kind of things I'm always looking for ! Of course, I use Google Earth software and consult topographic maps when creating an accurate map for a scenario. But I always prefer when I can also gather some informations from photos and people who live near the site I'm trying to recreate in CM ! Keep up please
  7. Yes, GoogleEarth could be very useful too. I've recently noticed that they "upgraded" their database with high-resolution portions of Ukraine. Including area like Kiev, Zhitomir, Donetsk region and the Kharkov and Bielgorod zone. Unfortunatelly, the high resolution terrain just stops a few kilometers south of Prokhorowka :mad: Is there someone here who have a scanned version of the topographic map "M-37-38" (scale 1:100.000) of the sector of Prokhorovka ? Thanks.
  8. Hi Gentlemen, Please just have a look to this link. It shows the coverage zone shown is for dual mode GSM-900/1800 phones. Nothing very important, at first, but the map may be interesting : Obojan and Prokorovkha region. Tell me what you think.
  9. Thanks for this explanation, Sergei. More about the size of your picture : do I understand correctly if one pixel in your picture is for one tile in CM map ? This feature may only work for forrests and water areas. I cannot really imagine for which other kind of terrain this tools can be usefull :confused:
  10. Hi Gentlemen, Just one question about the fantastic Mapping Mission software in general, and about the "Load Terrain From Bitmap File" feature in particular. Is anyone here kind enough to explain to my tired brain how this really works, with examples ? I never tried this and wonder how can I use this specificity. Thanks
  11. Calm down. Be safe, I'm not a nazi : I'm not yelling "Heil Hitler" each time I press the "Go" button. So don't expect me to make any apologies about any dictatorial regime. If my message may appear doubtfull by this point of view, or I wasn't direct and explicit enough, or you misunderstood it. Now, if you want to play with words, you can advance that Stalin's regime wasn't genocidal. If it makes your day. But this is at least controversial as it depends how you define a genocide : is it a mass-extermination only motivated by racist and/or religious criterias ? Soviet genocide http://www.answers.com/topic/soviet-genocide The problem, then, is how to define de mass-deportation of the entire Tatar population of Crimea by the soviets in 1944 ? Regardless of their age, sex, activities, political ideas, these poor people were deported because they were Tatars, like Gypsies were deported because their were gypsies. No class-discrimination here. Needless to say that their condition of deportation were absolutelly horrible and a vast proportion of deported people died during the journey or soon after it. This is another way of extermination. "And this must be remembered !" What could be unaffordable is to say that, for example, the planned massive starvation in Ukraine, 1930, is far from a genocide. Those millions people were just killed by starvation for a political reason. By this point, I can agree with you : this is not a racist motivation... ...but the result is the really same. So telling soviet regime is not genocidal is "technically correct" if you want to play with your dictionnary. But the whole idea sounds immoral, and irrespectfull in front of these millions of victims. The Great Famine-Genocide in Soviet Ukraine (Holodomor) United Human Rights Council - Stalin's Forced Famine - 1932-1933 - 7,000,000 Deaths A good starting list for an overview of eastern european genocides : Genocides and Ethnic Cleansings of Central and East Europe, the Former USSR, the Caucasus and Adjacent Middle East -- 1890 - 2005 Sad picture of a young ukrainian boy.
  12. Just imagining a poor d*ckhead yelling "Heil Hitler" in front of his computer screen each turn makes laugh to tears ! LOL
  13. Oh come on, that's a really old story, isn't it ? Are you a nazi-fanboy just by picking the german side in our quick battles ? Are you a communist enthusiast when playing the soviets in Ukraine '43 ? Please stop : I consider people here to be mature enough and play CMBB without any political "feeling" behind. Or this forum is full of NKVD lovers and NSDAP nostalgics ! Tell me then... You cannot play this game with this kind of "morale preference" : both sides fought for a dictatorial regime and genocidal politics. War on the eastern front has nothing in common with war western allies fought in north Africa nor in western Europe : it was a war of annihilation, a war of complete destruction of populations, soldiers, equipments, industries, cultural references, languages, religions, identities. For example : Nazi program for the eastern territories was to destroy and control population by starvation, and then repopulate the "empty spaces" with german colons. On the other hand, Stalin has drastically modified the eastern european boundaries and this resulted in massive moves of population (eastern Poland, former east Prussia, etc.). Then the "empty spaces" were repopulated... Occidental people cannot really imagine how fierce and merciless was this war : did germans burnt every norman villages they left, did allied troops shot every captured german soldiers they found. No. Or maybe in some rare occasions. It was more than normal in the east : burned villages, pillages, starved to death prisonners, shootings, rapes, etc. So you're not choosing the "good" side by picking the soviets in CMBB ! Forget about that ! It's the same idea about the swastika : if this flag represents a totalitarian and genocidal regime, why not then replace the soviet flag with something else too ? Stalinism was a totalitarian and genocidal regime too. So pick up an historical flag mod and forget about the rest, or quit CMBB. Finally, if some players here design some scenarii with a whole uber-Tiger-abteilung and a bunch of fanatic elite SS grenadiers, against some obsolete 30's guns and conscript T34s... ...well... let them play alone. If this could make them happy ! The problem would be that those designers make this battle to vehicle real nazi ideas or "admiration". But first, we should let them explain their motivations and listen to them objectivelly. We cannot judge them as "Nazi-fanboy" without any defence. By the way, if these scenarii are really bad, uninteresting, then let the vast population of players and playtesters give an opinion about. We will be fixed soon.
  14. None ! IIRC, there is already a thread about that here. Got to do a search...
  15. Mmmh... You've changed your sig, that's forgiven of course. I may have over-reacted, no ? I'm sorry. Sorry too for hijacking MikeyD's thread. Keep up the good job
  16. As being french too (no one is perfect, ah ah) I'm agree with you Beorix. A souvenir day spent with french WW2 veterans (as my grandfather, wounded in winter 1944 somewhere in Alsace) would be an interesting therapy This kind of futile agressivity is an obvious insult to anyone who fought a war or was a victim of military operations. Did someone see me insulting german, english or american people that way ? Come on, how old are you, EM ? You're surelly very tired or stressed to post that kind of signature. Feel so sorry for you Edit : by the way, EM could feel agressed by my OWN signature, LOL [ December 21, 2005, 08:20 AM: Message edited by: Bogdan ]
  17. Even if totally irrealistic for combat, the "courtyard" picture looks really "french-normandy" to me.
  18. Definitly second that ! By the way, conducting an attack is, IMHO, the most difficult thing to do ! Read, practice, practice, read again : it's the only solution to improve your skills. You'll find many good hints and advices here (use the "search" tool)... PS : welcome on the forum
  19. Mmmh... ...'got a different version here : From Panzerworld.net
  20. Yeah, first to post in both forums ! Again, great job
  21. Excellent post, Winecape ! :cool: Should be "sticky", in order to check the future updates !
  22. AFAIK (please correct me if I'm wrong), those tufts are hardcoded and then unmoddable, like the shell splinters
  23. Oops ! I feel concerned here But I wasn't griping or complaining, just... ...suggesting !
  24. Ok, what do we win if we find the historical period or the military campaign ? A free CMx2 copy ? Mmhh ? So me, I would say... ...Ardennes 1944 !
