  1. Very nice! Thanks for creating those.
  2. Yes, that site is still working and I've downloaded from it lately, but the search doesn't work. So you sort of have to manually weed your way through the many mods hosted there.
  3. I just installed the CMx1 games from GOG and have been downloading mods for CMAK as I have mods for CMBO and CMBB. But I have only installed a few CMAK mods so I am going to be selfish and piggyback on Scrapdealer's thread and kindly ask Erwin to upload his mods to my Dropbox. Sending him a PM.
  4. Thanks for the reply, Schrullenhaft. I've got CMBN and CMBS running again so far with just reactivating the licenses. CMA had to be reinstalled though due to the different license method with that game.
  5. So while I cry about what happened, my Windows 10 drive got corrupted somehow and I ended up reinstalling Windows from scratch. Thankfully I have backups of all my drives including the drive that has all of the CMx2 games on it including the files that are usually in the Documents folder on the Windows drive. So I didn't lose any files associated with CMx2 as their files are on a non-Windows drive. Anyway it appears that I can just reactivate the games and expansions with the keys and the games run fine without having to reinstall them. I just tried that with CMBN and it plays just fine.
  6. I also upgraded from an i7-920 at 4 Ghz with a GTX 970 to an i9-9900 at 5 Ghz with a 2070 Super and I did see some difference in the CMx2 games. With the frame rates locked at 30 fps, I can play bigger scenarios with higher graphics set and keep at 30 fps more easily than I could with the old system. With the old system I sometimes had to turn down the Model Quality to Improved or even Balanced to maintain 30 fps while with the new system I can run most scenarios with the Model Quality up to Better or even Excellent and still keep 30 fps.
  7. The only game I use this option for is Train Simulator as it really helps out the graphics for that. But for other games, I've never really liked it.
  8. I built a new computer in September and got close to what you are planning on: i9-9900k overclocked to 5.1 Ghz using a Noctua NH-D15 CPU Cooler (You need a very good cooler for the i9-9900k!) Gigabyte Z390 AORUS MASTER w/ DDR4, 7.1 Audio, Dual M.2, Gigabit LAN Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4 3200MHz Kit (2x8GB), Black Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER GAMING OC (Decided on this card and not a RTX 2080 as the 2070 Super is supposedly only 4-5% slower than a RTX 2080 and for $200 CAD less) Samsung 970 EVO Plus NVMe M.2 PCI-E x4 SSD, 500GB for Windows 10 Home 64-bit
  9. Thank you, Leprechaun. Your information has fixed the issues I have with CMx1 on my new Windows 10 computer.
  10. I just got a new computer last week and the re-installs went very well exactly as BFCElvis wrote. The only thing I did do on the old computer was un-license CMSF1 before I moved the SSD to the new computer.
  11. Thanks for the replies. Much appreciated! I realize that the adaptive vsync trick does reduce the draw distances, but on my old computer, that was the trade off for the older hardware. I tried the AA off and vsync off idea and found that the frame rates will go from under 24 fps up to the top 60 fps with those settings off. Since I have a non-Gsync or Free Sync monitor (60 Hz 1080p monitor), the stuttering was pretty heavy. Setting the frame rate limiter to 30.5 in nVidia Inspector seems to be the best option for me at least until or if the adaptive vsync setting is ever fixed in the
  12. Just got a new computer (i9-9900k with a RTX 2070 Super) and I find that the adaptive vsync with half refresh trick still does the best job with getting smooth frame rates, but with the latest nVidia driver (436.30), setting Vertical Sync to 1/2 Refresh Rate and Vertical Sync Tear Control to Adaptive doesn't cut the frame rates in half to a smooth 30 fps. Is this true for others that use this setting with the latest nVidia drivers? I read a few posts where others indicated the same thing. I ended up having to use the Frame Rate Limiter set to 30.5 to get the smoothness. For thos
  13. No issues installing here though I haven't bought CMSF2 yet. Many thanks!
