  1. Congratulations Paper Tiger on your fine The Road to Dinas - Red v Red Campaign. I have only played part of battle the 1st battle as too much work gets in the way of play recently. I am enjoying myself and look forward to getting back to my saved game when I can. So far I am doing OK but since I will be on the Road to Dinas for a month or two at my pace, I am being careful with my units. I see your development skills are being put to good use with BFC and testing the Brit module. Could this be a Brit Campaign bonus in the offing for us?:cool: Cheers,
  2. "Finally, after literally hundreds of hours of hard work (again!), the 'Road to Dinas' campaign is available for downloading in two flavours." Your "Mission List" alone is daunting. I look forward tot the many hours of intense entertainment. Thank you Paper Tiger.
  3. Thanks Dietrich, "based on an actual event" ... sounds like a very reasonable way to distill 5 days into two hours. With a system reliability in excess of 95% with a published accuracy under 10*metres (33*ft) Circular Error Probable (CEP) one would hope your unit got one of the 95% units, a fully functional JDAM when you are Blue and close. In playing CMSF, I've had a JDAM land on my friendly forces when I was pinned and not too careful. Ruins your game day rather dramatically. I know nothing about Special Boat Service (SBS) but the equipment issue should be able to be adjusted in the British squad settings. Ironic that the US prisoner became the USA media focus and not the 5 Days of The Battle of Qala-i-Jangi.
  4. HWG, Welcome. P4.0 will get tested. As you and other Apple folks know (and BFC after Apple's corkscrewing them in CMx1) native OS function, while not a deal breaker is a deal maker for the curious. How many $$$ that makes for BFC is questionable at best. Won't stop Apple folks from asking for our native share of the CMX2-3 pie. IMO Apple's Booty Camp as a sure way to sell more Apple CPUs. I know of several folks who switched because they found OS X easier to live with. They do not play games though. If the emulators could evolve enough to do the CM deal then fine.
  5. A semi-historical Qala-i-Jangi scenario would be appreciated. Your OOB looks good to me and even better with Brits. 1 F/A-18 for beaucoup JDAMs ... Does anyone know how this happened? Didn't they have guidance or was it a mayhem malfunction? Thanks,
  6. Bring on your Godzilla of goodness PT. Should be an enormous example of what can be accomplished in CMx2. Thank You for the next months of campaign play for me.
  7. Here are my test results with a 1 yo macbook pro 2.5 core duo, 4GB RAM, 512MB video ram. Tried the VM Fusion 2.0+ free trial. Got the need to update Open GL drivers message. CMSF did not start. Is there any way to update Open GL drivers to meet the VM Fusion 2.0 requirements :confused: I will try Parallels 4.0 free trial and report. Yes dual boot "Booty Camp" is a double kick in the booty. The smell of Native OS X CMX2 in the morning will be a more pleasurable double espresso.
  8. The current V1.11 maps work much better for me. Yes, Unit selection just isn't what it should be... and will be changed for Normandy. I am not a QB only player. I do enjoy greater randomness that can occur as in the old CMx1 QB options but CMx2 is so much better I easily trade QB for a better game all round. Falconander's suggestion of roll your own is appreciated. In fact making my own small, mundane scenarios helps me understand just how much time Mark, the QBG and all the scenario / campaign designers invest in their work. Thanks to all. QB is not perfect but it is much improved in v1.11 IMO. McBane, " I remember doing QBs in CMBB and BO and they at least gave you some challenge...." If you really want a challenge, toss some of the scenarios or campaigns that designers have uploaded. Actually, playing with the editor, making a home brew scenario in CMx2 can be a lot of fun. Hang in there for Normandy. Oh, Don't forget to lobby for the OS X versions of CMx2 too:)
  9. CAS... I really like playing missions with air support. Unfortunately, I don't see how I could justify the Rebels having control of the air in my campaign since they didn't have it in 'Hasrabit'. But it's in the early ... Hey PT, Not in your campaign but I was thinking what if the rebels snagged a eggbeater(s) in their insurgency? An idea. "I have to confess that I really like playing these single company sized actions. " Sounds like a winner PT. Some screenshots of the new map in action?
  10. I hope the BFC "expectation" becomes a Normandy Mac version simultaneous with the PC release. Booty Camp or an evolved xp emulator may be a work around but CM is play for me. Dual Boot is not a deal breaker but CMX2 titles natively on all my Intel Mac OS box is a Dream Come True ... I hope.
  11. In my experience the new V1.11 QB is a much better product.
  12. "Although it's a tank battle, it will be your infantry that will win it ... I suspect some of you will hate it though." Hate it! Not me. Not folks who enjoy what I consider one of CMSF's more enjoyable features. The games CQ unit fire fights and tactics with the AFV / CAS as A factor but not THE factor. OK, I admit I enjoy CAS but that is my personal peccadillo Thanks PT.
  13. OK, Uncle JOHN;) You are the one who Pimped my Mods:rolleyes:
  14. "if it doesn't cost millions then it can't be good" ..."these decisions are also still largely personality driven" ..."working with fickle bureaucracies" ... sounds like a nightmare SIMS adventure;) GSX has it right... too many things that the military want, the public doesnt. Having worked in and around fickle (non military) Guv-Mint bureaucracie$ you are wise to move along your but cultivate those individual instructors who use CM products. One of these guys / gals may be in a position to help in various ways over time. Hell, help one soldier stay sharper and healthy is a plus... and money saver for the Military.
  15. (in game action from the mission 'Jameela') Sometimes, when you're working on a very large and ambitious project like this, you just hit a wall and feel like giving up and today was one of those days. I've just played some of these missions to death over the last few months and I just don't enjoy playing them anymore. PT, Sorry I missed you notes on The Road to Dimas. Away from CPU 'fun time' for work. Hang in there. We do enjoy and appreciate you craft. Keep it fun and healthy for you. We need creative campaigns for nourishing pleasure time in CMSF. Peace,
