  1. Print screen works and is fine if you only need one shot. But if you want to take multiple screens then use something else so you're not continually alt-tabbing to save the screen grab. FRAPS is what I use too. Just point it to a folder and snap as many as you like.
  2. Yes, I think I called it a 'showcase for suppression' or something like that.
  3. Looking at the thread again I see only four CMBN campaigns, and they are among the most popular so not sure any Combat Mission vet will learn anything new from it, but ya never know.
  4. I wrote a campaign review thread at SimHQ. It died off since there was no interest or comments. But I covered several CMBN campaigns. Maybe you can take something from it, though I did not consider engine 4 in the commentary. https://simhq.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/4490340/combat-mission-campaign-reviews#Post4490340
  5. I approve of this Go ahead and get CMBS. Just don't start it.
  6. CMRT, East front? How to pick just one right? But I will anyway, and suggest Bidermann's In Deadly Combat. a company-level memoir from soon after Barbarossa, through Sevastopol, and the retreats to the Kurland pocket. A great read. https://www.amazon.com/Deadly-Combat-Soldiers-Eastern-Studies/dp/0700611223
  7. More of a wish-list sort of thing, and not really in step with the OP, but I'd love to see more robust statistics tracked by Combat Mission and displayed for the player. Aside from win/loss ratio like the OP wants, more detail about the combat that took place in the debrief, and perhaps a cumulative page showing aggregate totals throughout the players 'career'. For example Rounds fired for each weapon type Accuracy percentage for each weapon type Most lethal weapon system Distance traveled Longest range kill Average range kill Penetration/deflection/part
  8. I like CMx1 too. Matter of fact I recently played through some campaigns and operation in CMBB and CMAK. Well a year or so ago I guess now. At this age, a year qualifies as recent haha. There is a lot to like about the original engine, and for me especially the Combined Arms setting in QMB. I like the ability to indirect fire target any spot on the map, not only those with LOS. I like the proper hunt command, and I could go on picking various elements that I prefer but I'll digress. But taken as a whole, and especially from a QoL point of view I don't think CMx1 holds up well. That doesn'
  9. In the sales profession they call this a takeaway close. The goal of course is to generate a sale as the prospective buyer proves it IS for him or her, and don't tell me what I cannot have I'll go against the grain and suggest that engine 4 has a few improvements that affect the AI, but to say it is better is a matter of degree. The main points of the engine 4 upgrade are: -- Added hulldown command -- Improved infantry spacing -- Added ability to peek around corners -- F/O kill stats now displayed -- Added screen edge pan toggle -- AI Area Fire Orders (The AI can now
  10. Nice AAR. I played this one last November and it's a tough one. I made a brief report about it here https://simhq.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/4495837/re-combat-mission-campaign-reviews#Post4495837 I noted in that post that I suffered my first M1 losses of the campaign in this mission, scored a tactical defeat. The map is a ATGM trap of the first order, with the terrain being ever so devious, especially on the left. Because you must exit the map on the far side you have to cross it which exposes your armor's flanks to those elevated positions in the upper left. Quite difficult, an
  11. I often find myself having an inner debate about these sorts of things. And something like the quote above is one. Due to a combination of the scale (both time and area), the AI and how things work in Combat Mission generally, there is no prospect of forcing a tactical withdrawal. A strong point in actual warfare is a key defensive position, and there will be times the enemy will hold at all costs, but in the main, even these sorts of positions will be abandoned when a penetration occurs elsewhere along the line and the troops on the strong point are threatened with envelopment. I suppose a sc
  12. Just so Erwin doesn't think he's mad, I saw it as well. My reaction was that maybe the forum server was being rebooted or something along those lines. It was fine next time I checked and I'm not concerned about it.
  13. Thanks fireship. I was aware of these, but have not seen them. What I am referring to specifically is the naval side of that campaign, although the way I wrote it could have been more clear.
  14. Same, and especially naval. I dream of an epic, historical, accurate film about Leyte. Such an important event, with so many facets, drama, mistakes, courage and sacrifice. Would make a fantastic film, done right.
  15. Your wish is granted danfrodo. https://www.nme.com/news/tv/no-time-to-die-director-signs-up-for-steven-spielberg-and-tom-hanks-band-of-brothers-follow-up-2778457 Filming is to begin next spring, if the virus rules don't prevent it I suppose.
