  1. Be sure to recheck all your graphic settings. What connection type are you using? Anything other than a Displayport (DP), or an HDMI connection will probably not deliver the quality that your looking for. I bought a widescreen 2 years ago and had the same problems. I resolved them by using the displayport setting with a 3440x1440 resolution and a 100Hz refresh rate.. The improvement was quite striking. I highly recommend using the display port if it is available on your monitor. Goodluck. Let us know how you get on.
  2. I am starting this scenario playing Syrians as a PBEM against a friend. I set RPG teams in ambush positions usually at street corners. The crewed ATGM's are on low rise roofs covering the largest fields of fire possible. Each will be moved, if possible, after firing. Like you, I have one covering the open road to the Milk Factory. Your plan sounds very much like mine. All my men are hiding. I have not used any target arcs although I may as my opponents attack develops. I will let you know how it goes.
  3. If I am playing against the A.I. I am concerned with having an interesting and enjoyable game. I am not much concerned with balance. If I am playing against a human then the battle can be offered with an option to mirror. Nearly all my opponents are more interested in competitive fun. Everybody is pretty honest about doing their best to make battles equal to both sides. There are many variables, as you noted. I have read that most historical battles were not equal or balanced. Perhaps thats the answer.
  4. I have FOG2 and love it. It is as good for Ancient war as CM is for recent conflicts.
  5. Unfortunately, the reality could be that we won't see much more from Battlefront................although I am hoping that their new association with Slitherine will provide more resources to see some outstanding projects completed. Time will tell.
  6. I know how annoying these type of problems can be. I have solved many, including CM problems, using the following approach. Uninstall the CM game you are having problems with. Delete all registry entries pertaining to that game only. Reinstall, Activate and update. If you still have problems uninstall all of your CM products. Go to your registry and delete all entries having to do with CM, Combat Mission, All title names, and Battlefront. Reinstall everything from scratch. Editing the Registry is easy, but you must be very careful not to delete unrelated items. Go slow and be s
  7. I am wondering If I was to uninstall my games, and then do a fresh reinstall, is the full game download current with the recent engine 4 upgrades?
  8. Napoleon has been romanticized to a great extent. In Britain, and most European countries, he was very much regarded then, as most regard Hitler now.
  9. Thanks for posting..................a very interesting article.
  10. Will the matches be played PBEM or TCP?
  11. We had snow yesterday in Ontario.
  12. Do you mean interior or exterior? We designed our kitchen using a program native to ikea where you can move from 3d to 2d. It was very easy to use and the Kithchen looks exectly as planned.
  13. Hi Bubba, I would not use any of those apps. You could end up with all kinds of bloatware and very often malware. First apply any outstanding updates from Microsoft. Then go to the company sites to get the newest drivers for your graphics and sound card.

  14. Not a particularly pleasant article, but one I found interesting. https://quillette.com/2020/03/28/social-distancing-during-the-black-death/

  16. I have been reading a fair bit about the 1918 pandemic concerning social distancing, and the economy. I eventually read the following article that seemed to sum up most of what I had read. The paragraph in italics below is the last in the article but I suggest you read the full article, link below. https://www.vox.com/future-perfect/2020/3/31/21199874/coronavirus-spanish-flu-social-distancing VSL ( the value of a statistical life ) is sometimes attacked from the left as craven, a reductio ad absurdum of economistic reasoning trampling over everything, including the value of huma
  17. Great Video................and just what this Thread needed........................yes this virus is serious business, but a little bit of humour is always helpful.
  18. Hi Kevin, It is usually a mistake to assume what another person's circumstances are without knowing them. In every way you are wrong. Our sole income is from a small business..........and it is not one that can be run from home. So yes we are in discomfort just like everyone else. We suspended our business since the last week in March to protect clients and workers. A few days later business closures were mandated by our Provincial Government. We live in Canada and there has been a reasonably good response from the various governments regarding Business and Individual circumstances.
  19. Herd Immunity works, unless you, or Family members are among those who die while trying to achieve it. In terms of social distancing, the idea is to immediately manage the level of contagion so hospitals will not be overwhelmed. Social distancing buys time to develop treatments and vaccines, while saving lives and lessening the burden of overworked health care workers and emergency responders. Social distancing also has us finding ways to deal with daily requirements in a responsible fashion that can be used when the general economy opens up. For instance at grocery stores, shie
  20. The Gatling gun did not show up until June 1864. It seems it was used mostly in the trenches at Petersburg until the War ended in April. Again predictive of World War 1 tactics.
  21. When this Pandemic is under control, I am sure there will be a lot of criticism, as well as much praise for the way it was handled. We would do well to acknowledge that without the measures taken we can never know how bad it might have been.
  22. As I understand it the "new weapons" , were available, for the most part only to the North, by virtue of their greater ability to develop and manufacture them. Cavalry was transitioning from the shock charge to being used as quick transit to ferry troops to areas where they would dismount to fight as regular infantry. This signaled the eventual demise, during WW1, of cavalry as a direct combat unit to one one of transit and reconnaissance.
