  1. I run CM on multiple Mac and Windows computers each with integrated and discrete GPUs, and I’m not the only one. It will use the discrete GPU autonomously in MacOS and with some changes in settings in Windows 10. See my reply to your thread here:
  2. Simple way to do this without using Nvidia’s tools: In Windows 10, click START - Settings - System then Select Display Scroll down to Graphics Settings right below Advanced Display Settings The second section in the window that opens is called Graphics Performance Preference use the Browse feature to find the exe of the game you want to have use the discrete GPU. You can set that by clicking on the app once it is added, and select Options. There it gives you a choice of windows deciding, or the integrated GPU or the Discrete one
  3. Those red unit icons in the background blend with the crosses and trick the eye in a quick glance. I kept thinking that somehow you killed dozens of people, not 3.
  4. All this talk of people without pants makes me think this is Fulda Gap: Burlesque.
  5. I enjoyed Bil and c3k’s CMBS Beta AAR some years ago, watching modern kit go and bang each other about, but this will be a completely different experience. Really looking forward to it!
  6. I remember reading Hackett’s Third World War, Coyle’s Team Yankee, and wanting to play out those battles and feel those stories. Now I get to do it for “real,” rather than the board games I bought back then. Awesome stuff, Bil!
  7. The dark May skies were laden with rain as the trucks trundled up the hill. Sound of laughter and boys’ voices pitched high with bravado filled the canvas tops of the trucks.
  8. Just stopped for the day during a REFORGER exercise...
  9. I run the CM games on my 2012 MacBookPro without issue. I’m still on MacOS 10.10. My friend runs it in his 27” iMac using MacOS 10.11 without a problem. There is a delay the first time one runs it after installation as the OS does some sort of scan of the application. This can sometimes take a few minutes but if allowed to complete then subsequent running of the app is instant.
  10. I’ve been waiting for these little guys for ages. I played around with it a fair bit to make that shot different from the conventional front or side shot.
  11. Ah, Balance. I agree, we need to have balance in a competitive game. And that is made all the harder because the war it is trying to simulate was never balanced. The more the game balances things the more it is removed from the realism that many die-hards would like to see. Personally, I don’t feel I need an excuse to be able to use certain vehicles. You mentioned the Cromwell and other Commonwealth vehicles and it’s an interesting example. Are they overpriced? Do their costs not reflect their quality, as you put it? I actually don’t know. Even if their cost was adjusted, would rarit
  12. This caught my eye after I wrote the above and wanted to address it because it is an important assumption. I emphasized one part because I think this is key. This is very much an assumption of the cost factor. It appears to imply that in this discussion, the Sherman is the natural match-up for the Panzer IV. I think this might be a easy conclusion to make, however, let's challenge that for a moment. It is a likely matchup? Sure. So is Sherman-Panther. Or Sherman-SdKfz 251. Or Sherman-infantry. I say this not be be silly but rather to draw one's attention that the kind of matchups they ar
