btw, anyone know how 'Scourge of War' series performs on old (7+ years) hardware?

Should run fine : https://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/requirements/scourge-of-war-waterloo/12996

You could always try the demo (http://www.scourgeofwar.com/downloads.shtml) for Scourge of War: Gettysburg.
Other Scourge of War games should have similar (low) requirements.
downloaded the demo and after watching my troops move i got my specs verified with game-debate ( http://www.game-debate.com/ ) and bought the collection on sale, also bought the newer waterloo collection as well, oh my...  :crazy2: lucky, had my coupon at hand - couldn't resist  this year's 47% off!  :-"

cheers! ...and thanks again for the demo link.
chem!

I was there early. I remember that AAR and being completely blown away. 3-D Half tracks traveling down that snow covered road taking evasive action. No other game captivated me like it. So incredibly groundbreaking. I must have played the Beta Demo 300 times before the release.

Sadly though, my enthusiasm has waned and CM no longer is anything that excites me, whatever iteration. These days I prefer Graviteam Tactics. It's realism, beauty, and immersion in this genre is second to none these days imo. When I think of CM, I remember it as a girl I once was crazy about that now does nothing for me. I have grown and she has aged not so good. Memories are all that is left. Good memories but, memories just the same.

Games are funny these days. I generally want to play wargames without listening to people who believe that swearing is cool and so use it as much as possible.
But there are some who claim it is realistic in a wargame and should be in as much as possible.

The lawyer that co-founded CIG\RSI with Chris Roberts worked for cryteck making contracts the opposite way before I assume working that inside knoweldge to his advantage when negotiating the CIG use of crytek. Crytek are crying foul about that as well.

 It's funny. Amazon seems to have purchased the cryteck engine in 2015 outright. Lumberyard which star citizen is now using seems to be a crytek based engine.
