  1. Oh, I almost forgot. I wanted to respond to the TV vs monitor thing. I have been using my OLED tv as my monitor for the last year and it has been just great. An investment for sure, but my very wise and frugal grandma used to tell me: "Even though you may not have much money it is a true-ism that in order to save money, you must spend money." Meaning that holding off until you have enough to buy quality things will ultimately save money in the long run. She knew of what she spoke.
  2. Thanks all for so much good advice, I really appreciate it. So I am now going to list the basic config of the new system I will buy from Origin. Please let me know if any of you see any potential issues with what I have tried to put together..... CPU: Intel I9900K 8 core(5.0Ghz) MB: Asus tuf z390m- pro gaming Wi-Fi MEMORY: 16 or 32gb Corsair Vengeance 3200Mhz (either 2 8's or 2 16's) GPU: Nvidia 8gb GeForce Rtx 2080 super founders edition Power: 750W Rmx plus gold Corsair Storage: 1Tb Samsung 970 Evo plus NVME M.2 & 1 Tb SSD drive. OS: Win 10 pro or home ( can't really tell the difference between the two...) Let me know if anything jumps out at you. Thanks again so much for your help and guidance. Joshua (SfNativeEnigma)
  3. Hello all-- My old computer died a fiery death and I know from playing these games for so many years that there are some video cards, (and other things?), That just will not run the games. I apologise if the answer to my issue is already on one of the threads, I just couldn't find it. So please lend me your knowledge for I am a serious lover of battlefront and their superb work. I am also really happy to get any advice you can give on who the best gaming PC Maker's are. Have been looking so far at Falcon nw, origin, digital storm and a few others but without some good advice about what will and will not run my favorite games I feel as though I am grouping in the dark.... Thanks very much. Joshua
  4. Have been playing these games for years, I mean YEARS. Love them, big Battlefront Supporter. Long story short. Win 7, older Laptop machine with Intel HD Graphics 4000 (I know, I know) But here's the thing: All the new updated versions of CM games run fine (except FI, but that seems to be install issue--John from support and I are working on it) so logically (which may not be my strongest suit) this new version of SF (2) should also work, right? The install and licensing went smooth(ish) but when I start the thing I get that most annoying, useless umbrella message "Shock Force 2 Has stopped Working" and "Windows will contact you if they figure it out"..... Has anyone ever been contacted by Windows? NOT. Please, if anyone has an idea of how to get around this issue please let me know. I do have a ticket already. Thanks
  5. Hey Vikingo I am having the same issue I think. But I cannot seem to find the Riva thing in any of the services or processes... Any advice?
  6. Hello All- So I have a slightly older laptop from HP that has been playing all the CM titles faithfully for years and now all of a sudden they will no longer even load (Logo pops up then--POOOF!!) get "CM Has Stopped Working and has shut down" Message. Also now get a message at Boot up "kbdsynch.exe no longer working". I have been pursuing various options with John in Tech support (Great guy everyone should praise his dedication) but so far we are stuck... What we do know (or think we know) is that it is most likely a video card/driver issue... The computer has a dual graphics card set-up (Radeon 7850M & Intell HD 4000) that has only ever been a problem, but despite this it has worked well for a very long time, and most likely the problem has to do with the recent AMD driver update. If any one else has had this problem or a similar one please let us know what you have figured out because it is now going on a month without these great games which for me have become central to the way I relax and ease my worried mind. I have attached a dxdiag txt file to this below for anyone to look at if that helps... What we have tried: 1) Clean uninstall of AMD drivers and reinstall of newest ones (which I think are actually the problem based on forum posts on amd website and others) which I was talked through by an AMD Tech support guy--who after it didn't work told me to go to HP for help--but they are money grubbing maggots who want to charge a $60 service fee every time you call tech support when the warranty has expired on your product--Which I am morally opposed to as well as too poor to afford. 2)Just about every combination of settings in the "Catalyst Controller" which is the AMD switchable graphics software. Please, if anyone knows anyone that may be able to help me out here I would be very grateful and if you live in the Bay Area, CA I would happily buy you a beer or a soda or whatever you would like... Getting desperate here. Thanks for your time DxDiag oct 3 2017.txt

  8. If anyone already thought of this or asked this question already and I missed it...sorry. But I thought there was a way--for instance: When Enemy armor triggers phase line Allied reinforcements enter... Etc. What say you all?
