  1. I prefer the simulation to be as good as possible. You can always find a workaround for the points system. The points system can´t possibly reflect all contingencies.
  2. Heh, I recently played this a few times as the french against the (german) AI. you can dislodge the germans from the hill by carefully targeting each floor with a supporting tank and advancing with the reserves you get from behind. Also you can target some of the buildings on the hill from the wood below I managed to kick the germans out of the town, but getting all the objectives, nope, too difficult.
  3. The ideology was well established before Hitler joined, so Nazism would have been a political factor in any case. Wheteher they could have taken over Germany without him, who knows?
  4. I totally agree, but I was being snarky that the US would not be amused if the envisioned 2% of GDP weren´t spent at least in part on US arms.
  5. Fair enough. Budget and intentions is true for all sides. For fun´s sake (before this thread is locked) imagine Europe actually integrating its armies and actually spending 2% of GDP but not on US arms.
  6. Defence spending: Nato europe: 1,5% of GDP, Russia: 4,3% of GDP Nato Europe GDP: 17 trn $, Russia 1,6 trn$ (do the math)
  7. What Euri asked, and in addition if you installed from the newest complete installer (V2.01), is the campaign fixed?
  8. Also had a hard time with this at first, but then I discovered: bit of a spoiler: The bradleys contain Javelin launchers.
  9. Thank god I keep an email archive back to the early 2000s. My CMSF1 purchase wasn´t in the database anymore.
  10. How were the scenario victory conditions converted from CMSF to CMSF2? Since CMSF2 will support the much improved victory conditions of CMx2 V4, were the scenarios upgraded in this respect?
  11. CMSF2 yay! CMRT endwar module , will there also be a battle for Vienna map? prettyplease
  12. same here... new Win10 update also killed my laptop´s sleep mode
  13. There is a MacOS symbol next to windows download. Other than that it all went smoothly.
  14. Works fine, thank you! Not important at all, but while I have your attention, how does CMH tell which version the game is? CMSF, CMFI, CMBS, CMFB are displayed correctly CMBN, CMA not
  15. For one, even in 1944/45 practically all forests in europe were managed, so trees never got that big. For two if all forests are made up of giant redwoods in CM, they should be depicted that way. We can expect that from a simulation that also happens to be a game
  16. I insist on the correct nomenclature which is: "kevlar trees" If somebody could organize a tank, live rounds and a few trees I would financially support the experiment.
  17. In a QB against Ukrainians:the T72B3 is more than enough, unless you are going for very long ranges >2500m against the US: T90am, faster spotting makes the difference. You can actually go head to head against the abrams and get lucks at very long ranges where hitting the target isn´t guaranteed for either side.
  18. France 1940 would be my favorite for unlikely CM games )
  19. My main issue with the current action spot size is the location of the action spot relative to terrain objects. i.e.: a ) Between hedges, walls etc. the troops are magically dragged to one side of the road b ) Troops can´t fire through hedges because the action spot doesn´t let them deploy up against the hedge c ) Area fire is unusable because you can´t aim at unspotted troops if they don´t happen to be right in the middle of an action spot. Of course you can say that is against the intent of area fire, but how do you resolve this fairly common situation: vehicle1 can spot enemy, vehicle2 can´t spot enemy but has LOF to said enemy. commander of vehicle1 radios commander of vehicle2: there is an enemy unit at the end of the graveyard wall. in the UI, vehicle2 has a ghost enemy symbol in the right spot, but area fire will almost certainly not be on target.
  20. True, but the system is unchanged since CMSF. Two PC generations later might allow for 6x6m or 4x4 m without too much speed sacrifice?
  21. Inferior to the Oplot in In the game? nope. I´ll glady prove it in a game.
  22. I´m also interested in an alternative to FRAPS. Not sure why, but FRAPS interferes with my mouse and if I turn off FRAPS during gameplay, it crashes all CMx2 games.
