  1. Funding wasn't the question. Blood and sweat to actually develop the game was what the Capt and Bil put in... a lot of it.
  2. Houses with cellars means altering the terrain mesh. I don't think anyone has considered that, BF certainly has not. It is the source really of the whole foxhole/fortification dilemma
  3. it might be worth noting that we got CMCW not by just asking over and over for it but because a couple people actually put in the sweat to do the project. They had a lot of work even convincing BF that they could manage it. If you really want it you may have to do a bit more than just keep asking.
  4. are you suggesting we go out and buy a cheaper rig? Cause that is what I'd have to do. Now if you are offering to buy it for me. ..
  5. Try Red Army by Ralph Peters. Lt Plinnikov is commanding a BRDM platoon. He doesn't last long in the story, but it is a good description of how the asset is used in the larger picture.
  6. actually 2 and in the same turn. High point of that scenario before I got utterly pulverized.
  7. I still have it installed.. basically for nostalgia. I never actually play it now.
  8. actually your problems are just beginning... don't start with the Russian campaign is all I'll say.
  9. Man this is a tough crowd Elvis. Get to work slacker!
  10. Heaven & Earth Unofficial Screenshot And Video Thread - Combat Mission Shock Force 2 - Battlefront.com Community
  11. I bet if it was an armor related thing you'd have dug a lot harder.
  12. some people like leaving you guessing. It is a psychological manipulation ploy and eventually leads to bicycle theft.
  13. wait? This crowd? Besides, if there is a patch you'll get it anyway. In the meantime you can at least look at stuff. BF porn.
  14. well the airport lounges would have been nicer. Now if it were today you'd hope for Dubai.
  15. A lot going on over the last couple months. US pressure on NordStream, Czech republic accusations and canceling any Russian participation on Nuclear program that cost billions, a more aggressive stance from US and reconnecting with NATO. Continued sanctions. Honestly not sure what Russia hoped to accomplish with the buildup, maybe just letting the West know that there was still a threat. However it is pretty much the only bargaining chip Russia has and is a double edged sword in that it just upped NATO's anxiety and played into the US position about Nordstream. As to water flow, we
  16. Putin may be a lot of things, but he isn't stupid. A full on attack on Ukraine would have been too big a provocation to the West. Russia is already economically hurting. The loss of that Nuclear contract in the Czech Republic would be nothing compared to what would come. Putin does know how to grab attention, but in this case it doesn't seem to have achieved much. On the other hand you can expect that NATO is going to have a much different stance now especially with a US leadership much more inclined to increase it's activities with NATO.
  17. while doing our office move I went from my hotel, past the old office and over to the new office all underground. Damn good thing as it was freakin cold. It was close to a mile.
  18. Patches are never charged and are always applicable for the base game (even if they aren't specifically patching the base game). The new model for quite some time now is when you download the game, you download everything. Even if you haven't purchased FR, if you DL the base game again right now, FR is included. If you purchase FR all you'll need is the activation key as you'll already have the module. The main reason to just look for the released patch is to save download bandwidth restrictions from your provider. I tend to just download the full installer as it just makes managing m
  19. Latakia would have been a major base of operations for Soviet power projection in the Eastern Med. How about an Airdrop to be supported by units coming in from 6th fleet.. oh wait is there a Marine module? Be an excuse to delve more into desert region settings. Funny thing that just occurred to me after posting this is I had a cousin who served in the Marines in the late 60s and was posted to the Med. I still have his old foot locker in my garage.
  20. Well ASL seems to have taken no offense and perhaps he is right that it is simply translation/language issues. If so my apologies. For reference though for a native english speaker, many of your posts are very aggressive. Yes that is kind of how internet communications seem to have gone. Not a good thing in my eyes as to how we treat each other differently when face to face versus this more anonymous medium.
  21. well if it makes you feel any better, I formatted my old main drive this week when I got my new PC.. before copying over my my docs folder. lost a bunch of stuff from CMSF2 that I hadn't backed up yet. Fortunately not everything, but a good amount of work on my Sadr city map went up in smoke.
  22. I always install over my existing directory without deleting. However I do keep backups (well most of the time) of my documents folder files. Now that I have one drive I just make sure that includes my BF my docs folder. Wish I had done that a week ago.....
  23. I started a quick count of FR QBs and stopped at 80, there were plenty to go. I think your installation went wrong somewhere. I am a PC guy, maybe one of the MAC folks can jump in. (actually it is 138, looks like they may have dropped 2}
  24. why are you being so obnoxious? I haven't seen AKD or ASL throw a single insult and yet every post of yours usually has one unnecessary taunt? ASL is pretty freakin knowledgeable. Scary kind of knowledgeable. If you have something to show him wrong I am sure he'd love to know as he is always looking for new sources. Calm down and trade source info but keep tossing the insults and BF is gonna give you the timeout you are working so hard to earn
  25. I'd stay away from the Russian Campaign in CW if I were you. Just sayin. And for what it is worth during Beta Testing I had a glorious time with Studienka. My infantry took a huge bite out of the Russian assault.. hiding in bushes and buildings, sneaking along culverts, scrounging PFs off their dead comrades. CMRT isn't my favorite title, but that was one of my favorite scenarios.
