If you've (the Soviets) managed to make it through to the winter of '41, the Germans are in deep poo poo. :knuppel2:

Well, one of us is for sure. The other is enjoying planning for the rematch.  >:D

After a bleak start for the Soviets (I can't count the number of armies/corps destroyed in the German offensive) the shoe is on the other foot now. :)

Yep...one of my first as well. Played it all the time until Red Storm Rising game out. That took over scratching my submarine itch.

Any of you guys have an “Odyssey” game system? It came out in the late 70’s/early 80’s before the Atari/intellivision/coleco consoles. It was always hooked up to the TV in the basement and there were really only two games to play on it: “combat!” And “Wizards of Wor”

My family had the older Odyssey 3000.  I remember you had to select your game from a dial on the console, and play with two attached paddles.  I only really remember Pong.

We upgraded to the Atari 2600 in early '80

And that's seven drivers in six months that I have had no issue with in any other game.  CM is the only game I have ever had to downgrade my driver for.  Beating a dead horse again that BFC is becoming very narrowly limited with the systems it can play on out of the box.

Graviteam, Stealbeasts, ARMA2/3, X-Plane (OpenGL), IL2: BOS, Command, and a number of smaller titles on Steam and with Matrix.  Not a single one have I ever had to retro any drivers, regularly contact support, turn off my AV, or whitelist a directory, or have to limit the game to one CPU core. 

Are all of them perfect, no, they aren't.  But since Graviteam gave up its bizzare patching, and discounting SB's stupid dongle policy, BFC comes out on top for the most effort to reinstall.

I'm not going to beat this driver conversation like a dead horse. But to explain what I have seen. Not everyone with this particular driver experienced it. If that were the case and it was a more permanent set up with nVidia then sure, you'd have to look at changing something within the game. But this seemingly random combination that affected a very few (I would guess at least half of the players here have nVidia cards and many have or had the February driver and didn't miss a beat). I was fortunate to have found a quick and easy fix for anyone who did contact me and had it. If it had been a more widespread issue I would have dug into it more deeply and now that I am typing this I wish that I had. My standard first suggestion to folks with crashes over the years is to ask them to update their drivers. I should have done this in the case of the parson who posted here because looking at the GeForce driver page there have been 7 new drivers since the problematic February release. Seven.....in 6 months.....

So, I'll change my initial reply to stolypin should have been:

Try updating your video card drivers. If it doesn't help open up a ticket on the Help Desk.

Maybe that's the one I played then, I remember it was set in the Pacific because it had Japanese Kongo Class BB's. And night graphics.
