  1. Snoopy's Christmas vs. The Red Baron - The Royal Guardsmen www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Pxw-RbdUow another video: youtu.be/sh-J4GSPgAM Lyrics O Tannenbaum, O Tannenbaum, do kannst mir sehr gefallen! The news had come out in the First World War The bloody Red Baron was flying once more The Allied command ignored all of its men And called on Snoopy to do it again. Was the night before Christmas, 40 below When Snoopy went up in search of his foe He spied the Red Baron, fiercely they fought With ice on his wings Snoopy knew he was caught. Christmas bells those Christmas bells Ring out from the land Asking peace of all the world And good will to man The Baron had Snoopy dead in his sights He reached for the trigger to pull it up tight Why he didn't shoot, well, we'll never know Or was it the bells from the village below. Christmas bells those Christmas bells Ringing through the land Bringing peace to all the world And good will to man The Baron made Snoopy fly to the Rhine And forced him to land behind the enemy lines Snoopy was certain that this was the end When the Baron cried out, "Merry Christmas, my friend" The Baron then offered a holiday toast And Snoopy, our hero, saluted his host And then with a roar they were both on their way Each knowing they'd meet on some other day. Christmas bells those Christmas bells Ringing through the land Bringing peace to all the world And good will to man Songwriters: Luigi Creatore / Hugo Peretti / George David Weiss Snoopy's Christmas lyrics © Sony/ATV Music Publishing LLC, Spirit Music Group, Barbara Schwartz Music MERRY CHRISTMAS AND GOOD WILL TO ALL MEN!, CT
  2. Thank you. That fixed it. I had a very old version and it was pretty simple to update after finding the Java download.
  3. Just installed the PWCG and when I click on the shortcut I get an error message: Java Virtual Machine Launcher A Java Exception has occurred And it won't launch. what's that all about?
  4. Does this work for other maps like Kuban or Veliki Luki?
  5. Found an interesting feature on the Kuban map - a railroad tunnel through a mountain, north of Indyuk and Tuapse. Very cool feature to have. Thanks Devs! Btw, I just discovered the Pat Wilson Campaign Generator (PWCG) which seems to be great for playing missions offline.
  6. Really nice mod and easy to use. Thanks to all for sharing!
  7. So far I only have BOK so my planeset and maps are limited to Kuban only, which is fine because I'm just getting started with the Great Battles theme. I'd like to learn how to build missions. I've found a few missions for Kuban map but there's not much available. I've seen a mission making tutorial but it looks complicated. I'm so used to "1946" being so simple. Give me some time to learn this thing and I'll get back with some single missions. It's great to see many of the old friends here!
  8. Emelianenko's missions in the Caucasus region were closer to Grozny, Mozdok, Nalchik, and Mineralnye Vody which are not on Battle of Kuban map but further to the east. In the past, I did make a campaign in the old IL2-1946 using a Caucasus mod map, made by yours truly. I'll soon release a 60-mission campaign but it's on the IL2-1946 modded setup (NOT for BOK though).
  9. Blitzen - Making sure you hit the target! CCG_Pips - ya, that's the Kuban_Winter MOD map. There was fighting during the winter too so the mod map fills the gap. The location is north of Tuapse where the Germans tried to force their way through the mountain pass.
  10. Practicing attacks in the mountain passes.
  11. Very good winter mod map! Thanks for this! Now it's possible to have the winter of 1942. Just in case some users are not familiar with installing mods... When I unzipped the file, I got the file "Kuban". Inside this file you will find "Kuban_w". Take out the Kuban_w file (which is the mod needed) and put it into your MODS folder. Also, as previously mentioned, select Kuban_autumn when choosing a map for a mission.
  12. There was mention of more detailed terrain elevations. I wonder if there will be trenches or depressions in the ground so that anti-tank guns or tanks can hide or be protected. I'm not talking about trench objects that are placed on top of the ground but rather as an actual trench below ground level. As you probably know, the Russians had extensive lines of trenches and defensive positions and minefields which made deadly killing zones. It would be great to have these defensive lines and trenches on the map. This would give more realism and be like the actual battlefield. The size of this map is decent. The old IL2 1946 Prokhorovka map is a similar size. It will be sufficient for air battles without a doubt. With the ability to have teammates in the air and on the ground, Tank Crew will be a great success! Very much looking forward to its release.
  13. hmm, I guess you're right. I didn't realize that! Well, I'm getting about 30fps with pretty good graphics and I guess I can live with that, for now. I've done lots of testing with different settings. If the settings are too low then it's just not enjoyable. I've found a good enough medium. Thanks for the tip, Kalthios. You saved me some worry and wasting time testing.
  14. I am new to Great Battles so I figured I should update the Driver for my AMD RADEON HD 7750 pci-e. I now have the RADEON ADRENALIN 18.11.2 driver. On-board Intel graphics are disabled. Radeon Software Version - 18.11.2 Radeon Software Edition - Adrenalin Graphics Chipset - AMD Radeon HD 7700 Series Memory Size - 1024 MB Memory Type - GDDR5 Core Clock - 800 MHz Windows Version - Windows 7 (Service Pack 1) (64 bit) System Memory - 6 GB CPU Type - Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2120 CPU @ 3.30GHz I'd like to increase frame rates which are unusually low. I suspect it may be the 60hz screen I'm using. If anyone has suggestions to improve or have similar specs... please share games settings and Radeon settings.
