  1. Have you tried turning all the settings down to see if that helps? I don’t have a Mac, but I’ve definitely seen a correlation sometimes with large scenarios and graphics settings. I’m guessing that the Combat Mission Engine is 32-bit and not 64-bit. This limits the amount of memory it can access. Can anyone back that up? My favorite games right now are: Cold War Red Thunder/Fire & Rubble its a toss up for number 3. I don’t have Afghanistan but Shock Force 2 is too one sided for me to give it a top slot.
  2. I am curious as to all the options and features we will get with the new PBEM+++++ system included with the Steam Cold War release. Can anyone point me to a list of games that already use it? I probably own a few and don't know it. Thanks!
  3. I would be given the yellow with brown polka dots when I got to the front of the line...
  4. A YouTuber I've been watching tweeted about PRO: Dunno how much he can show but should be interesting to follow. He's just started uploading CM videos. He has many good things to say about Combat Mission.
  5. Ahhhh @BFCElvis, I'm playing @Artkin. You shouldn't have told him that! Now its gonna be a fair fight!
  6. Since I usually play NATO I think Soviet tank commanders, especially those in T-64As, should stand up out of their turrets at all times. That way I can actually do some damage to 'em.
  7. Thanks @Kevin2k! I've got that bookmarked now. Probably a sticky to it somewhere appropriate on the forum would be a good idea.
  8. You guyz are totally off target. Since CMCW already has desert terrain I'm guessing the mod is Israelis vs An Arab Coalition. Well, I guess @Sgt.Squarehead was getting close: I think the DLC will be set in the middle East. Prolly '67 to '82. Pre and post Merkava. My humble, but correct, opinion.
  9. Steam should be considered marketing for Battlefront. For anyone who knows about their games, it is better to buy direct and get a Steam key I would imagine.
  10. You will not regret it @BarnesWhittle. It is one of their best!
  11. That is how I currently check for updates @Heirloom_Tomato. It does take a bit of work though. I'm often very good at finding the hardest way to do things. BTW, I still have our epic battle saved . I think I was on the verge of making a comeback after your comeback, that was after my comeback.
  12. Hi@Howler Folks on Steam will have their games updated automatically. That's one of the good things about Steam. You can also revert to earlier versions if you need to. So I say this to just clarify that this topic would only be useful to folks who don't use Steam. Personally I would love a single thread updated by the moderators that I could refer to. I keep a copy of all my installers on a flash drive so I would like a thread I could follow that is an easy reference and would email me with the release of an update since I'm following that thread. That sounds reasonable to me.
  13. Death and taxes. No escaping them. 16.5%, Wow! That's twice the sales tax where I live.
  14. I logged in and put CW (download only) in my cart and did everything but pay for it and it stayed $60. Even with the extras I couldn't get it to $69.90. @BFCElvis
  15. Ditto. We probably need a thread dedicated to that and pinned.
  16. If I'm Russian, and I want to spot something, the PRP-4M is the winner, hands down. It's radar spotting system works great! The BMP-3M comes in second at about 1/2 the spotting capability. (night, very hazy, totally unscientific)
  17. If I unbutton an M1 Abrams. Will that reduce its spotting ability? I know in Iraq there were instances when the crew popped up to use their machine guns against RPG teams on the left and right of the road. This is crazy brave and the crews were often injured, but in Combat Mission, would spotting change to the Mk1 eyeball?
  18. What's that, you say? First infrared targeting. Then thermal imaging and LIDAR. Tommorrow, over the horizon, noise following hypersonic missiles.
  19. Yeah, but maybe the UK doesn't want that data widely spread about. Otherwise
  20. But seriously, I bet a few of those features trickle down to retail.
  21. BF have said there is absolutely no way the Professional version is coming to a retail market. Absolutely no way. Sounds like they are on the fence, so I take that as a definite maybe.
