  1. Probably not tactically relevant .. but does explain in part why being on a sub might just be safer that being within ground forces.
  2. Getting that in my Chrome too. Related to Google ads I think.
  3. @pintere Please be mindful this is a very small scenario and I do not recall much about it. Thanks for helping out a new player Ian.
  4. You can sort of get away with late 42 into 43 ... check out the Statingrad mod for RT. It's not perfect but worth a look. However, I have not heard of any plans to do Barbarossa. Here a link to that mod ... https://cmmodsiii.greenasjade.net/?page_id=5#search/text=stalingrad
  5. https://www.defenseone.com/ideas/2020/08/nato-needs-focus-black-sea/167431/ Interesting recent article.
  6. Wow. This is one of the coolest things in a while. Thanks for the link. Just dropped a Mech Unit on my cul de sac in New Jersey. The maps print out very well. For those folks inclined, you can make your own wargames if you are not too picky re: the quality of the chits. I have seen similar software over the years. But this seems much faster and just better overall. If the hex grid could made even smaller, what a killer app this might become. Looks like the smallest hex side is a mile long which would be 6 times the size of Panzer Blitz type maps.
  7. OK ... this is good news for many. I guess the only downside for Steam players is that those environments are not officially supported by BF right now. But does not mean players can't have a lot of fun in the meantime.
  8. Off the the Steam site: OS: Windows 10 Additional Notes: The game does not work in a virtualized environment (virtual machine) I might be wrong and that would be a good thing. But I think you ran the demo off a download from the Battlefront site where the non Windows app is available. The demo link on Steam takes you to Battlefront directly. Mac users may have to wait a little bit. But it will be well worth it.
  9. Hi ... thanks for the reminder of a game from that era. But would a developer spend the time to compete with the Command product line? A beer and pretzels Command with email play or even online head to head real time might work. Perhaps throw in Tacview for a 3D effect. Might just be marketable. Keep it simple, abstract and very playable vs a buddy. Unlike Command.
  10. Does't outside music get in the way of tactical awareness that is a big part of Combat Mission and limit the success of the player? Would not recco this in a ladder game . Sound in CM provides a lot of intel. Kevin
  11. You just made my Day. To learn a jerk from Philly like you is unhappy with their life is precious. But not unexpected. Did you ever earn enough to pay off your mother's credit card? Or perhaps you are still sitting in the those Pampers she went into debt for?
  12. Exactly. Some humor is universal. Some is pointingly targeted. I enjoy Saturday Night Live. But all humor is water off a duck's back unless the person has no sense of humor at all. I am finding people have no sense of humor and cringe at a good joke like the cameras of Orwell's 1984 are watching them. "How many ------- does it that to screw in a light bulb...? " Fill in the dashes and it's a funny joke around the water cooler.
  13. Not so sure since many even in the US would not get the humor. Most here don't care about public policy at all. BTW no one commented on the context/explanation I provided. Getting a bit ahead of yourself it appears. Trying to read people's minds and put words in their mouth's does not foster credibility. Comes across as a pissy fit. Let them speak for themselves. Thousands of people who are into public policy don’t think this specific humor is stupid at all. Many are doctors, lawyers engineers, and small business owners. Achievers. They see it as a clever 4 word summary of how some juris
  14. I think there are many laptops in that dollar range that have graphics cards. MSI comes to mind, but so many other outfits market within that price point and are well suited to run today's wargames. If I needed a new PC and I asked at random for a friend to buy me a 1500 dollar gaming machine I would not return it based on the brand name. The differences are really minor.
