  4. Nope. Just a admirer of great heros, one of a kind gutsy people, WWII history, and role models. The higher you look up, the higher you will climb. -Pv-

  7. Many WWII historians here will feel compelled to view this movie in December. Rottentomatoes.com movie site has a 95% want to see of those who have voted which is high for a non-fiction docudrama. Over all, the critic reception for what they know is an inspirational film is positive. More so than normal.

  8. We know you have a vivid imagination, Ken. -Pv-
  9. ... then you have to have maintenance crews and randomly defective parts, mash units, supply convoys, breach jams, MREs vs hot meals, fresh socks, disease, prisoner camps, guards, MPs, segregated units, civilians, yes- duds... Where does it all end?
  10. Men morale does not disable them completely and randomly. -Pv-
  11. I would rather focus be given to fixing broken stuff, not adding more broken stuff. -Pv-
  12. Obiously we're not talking about the AMD R9 that retails for $1500. http://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/amd-radeon-r9-295x2-review,1.html -Pv-
  13. I have a 1 Gig Radion 6800. WH plays fine. FSX plays fine. I haven't done any maps in CMBN that I know slowed down the sim. Maybe I haven't played any big enough. FSX is almost entirely CPU driven so no matter what card you have, it won't go any faster than your CPU which does 80% of the rendering in that sim. -Pv-
  14. I agree. Since a "vX.XX" is the easiest way to know what you have going forward, and going forward requires us to know what we have in order to purchase and install the correct update, upgrade, module, some sort of intersection of conventions, even if it's a major skip in nomenclature will greatly assist the purchasers and in the long run, reduce tech support. I have been a Battlefront purchaser for many years and I get stuck in the cracks. -Pv-
  15. I'm sure we've all seen the videos of inf riding tanks into conquered cities, but I agree that in the front lines and battles around Normandy early in the invasion, the fighting was so close and the distances limited enough that tanks riding was either unnecessary or suicidal. I've not seen any images or videos in historical archives demonstrating this as any but very rare. I've seen plenty where the inf was creeping behind the tank in escort/fear formation. This series on Hulu has a lot of historical film from that period. Dry, over dramatized and hard to watch, much of it, but instructional: http://www.hulu.com/search?q=The+Winning+of+World+War+II%3A+Road+to+Victory -Pv-
  16. I think a blind man would prefer shadows to total darkness. Thanks. -Pv-
  17. I saw that shaders were changed. I would like to see what the C&C lines look like since I don't have the other game that introduced those. -Pv-
  18. Thanks. This is similar to the one on the Battlefront 3.0 upgrade page. Looking for others with other than the hit marks. -Pv-
  19. I've been searching Battlefront and Goggle for a collection of screenshots displaying all or many of the new 3.0 features at applied to CMBN. Have not found what I'm looking for. If you know of any, please direct me. Thanks. -Pv-
