It includes the XVM mod, but you don't have to run it.
I loaded this mod yesterday. It took a little getting use to but I like it now. It appears that you can zoom out further on the map that is nice when I play my arty .

Good tip, i'll try that.

After only my 6th game with the T34, it appears i'm getting proficiant with heavy tanking. Got a 3 kill game, getting me enough money to get my SU-152. I like it. Slow.. but damn does it pack a wallop!

Allright kids, I'm out. See you Friday evening. There's a couple Deputy's in the clan in case anything needs tweaking, or new members approved. Don't blow the place up while I'm gone please.




Oh, and have fun!

I coulnd't swing that big a purchase without the missus beating me with a stick so I settled for a RAM II.

It needs a different play style that the Churchill. The Churchill definitely loads faster. The Ram drives faster and seems to sight faster too. I added the rammer right away and spend the extra for a 100% crew.

I seemed to be able to kill lots of stuff with the Priest this weekend, the rest of my garage not so much. I swear the E8 turned into a shell magnet over the last few months. I used to be able to sit, sight and snipe pretty effectively but I can't get any damage out of the gun anymore and I die way faster than I used to.

7.4 is really dragging my already marginal system down. I've got a spare PC that my 9 Y.O. and I are going to upgrade over the next couple months.

That teamspeak thing is pretty cool. Wife said I might as well get a decent headset instead of a cheapie. I think she regretted that Saturday night

I'm getting more red-screens either at the start-up of battle screen, or on full zoom. I agree... something is slowly changing, but I can't believe my few year old system shouldn't be able to handle it.

2 Gig Ram, but a newer Radeon HD 4670 1GB 128-bit DDR3 Video Card, etc.

I have 8 gig, 4gig video card and I got red screen during or after dragon ridge in the last version, and am getting it more....and more crashes as well. My machine is a quad core as well.

I think it may be some bad code floating around.

No way do I think it is an issue with my machine....it is not enough to really tick me off, but there is something in that dragon map that just kills my pc.

And I've never seen the red screen.....which makes it that much harder to track the problem down.

All of my PCs experience the red screen on occasion. Only happens on 1+ hour sessions, and only when zoomed.

I assume it has something to do with a video memory leak, but who knows.

I'm finally seeing video issues. When I zoom out from all the way in I have to look through a ghost image of the fully zoomed in screen. If I re-zoom it changes the ghost image to the last zoomed screen. Only started after 7.4. Otherwise I'm still rockin 40 fps with everything on high.

I agree (thought it was just me). I've been getting my ass kicked by tanks I used to at least be on even terms with, and I can't pen anything. And my gun gets knocked out continually.
But that's better than my German tanks with their stupidly fragile motors.

I just tried to install that Domgard's Mod Pack, but thoroughly screwed my client up doing it (it already had XVM, so I wasn't sure how to install the pack around it)... so this time I uninstalled the client.

What I found after uninstalling was a ton of folders and files left over (aside from the screenshots... of which I have over 1,500 screen shots ... I'm not kidding...). I moved my screenshots folder and then manually deleted everything, defragmented the hard drive, then uploaded the client again and installed it.

Maybe this will make a difference with the red screens?

And... I'm gonna skip future mod packs save for XVM... I always tend to screw them up, then I'm out an hour uninstalling and re-downloading the client again.




One of many ss's that I thought were cool - back when the client was screwing up... or actually it was my old video card I think.
