I'm waiting for the CC3 Android port. My phone has more processing power than my Windows PC at the time of that release! :D

This past summer, I purchased a Dell Desktop (Win 7 Pro) that creates no noise or heat and didn't cost squat. It doesn't do intense graphics stuff, but it works well with CCMT ,WAR, and TOAW III. Smooth as silk.

It would have to do CCMT, but anything else game wise?

I had to ditch WOV, WOE (flight simulator) and RTW was a little choppy.

The games I retained: CCMT, WAR, BOA (Ageod), PG Forever, TOAW3, Steam and Iron (NWS).

Any one of these games could keep a user busy for a very long time.

PG Forever is that Win7 friendly version of PG2 the guys at JP's developed isn't it? I helped Robert Mary at the PeG_ww2 section several years back, when he (and I) was active there with historical data on his mods for the ACW theater campaigns he created. It was a ton of fun, but was feeling much better back then.

Other than that only CMBB and CMAK. Getting kind of a hankering to start playing CC5 again after taking 3-4 months off.

@ Werfer,

The PG Forever V1.02 does seem to work well with Win 7 Pro (that is what I have). Some scenarios are very difficult. You just cannot waste any time, and you cannot purchase useless stuff, or you will lose.

But CCMT and WAR work too. Very smooth. If anyone runs into Senior Drill tell him thanks (from me) for the CC5 on CCMT mod.

Everytime think of anything PG2, reminds me of days way, way back of OLD Club SSI and various factions that were there. WHAT a place that was! Shocking the amount of people still around in various war gaming communities still active. Lot of friends from there.

It is now 2016, so I wonder if that means we are all off topic now.

Just reading the phrase "Club SSI" brings back a flood of memories.

I got some mileage out of CC4 and CC5, but nothing like the mileage I got from CCMT.

For the duration with Win 7, I am sure I will still log lots of time with the WW2 Tactics mod. I still like to observe the combat, it never gets old.

It is conceivable that CCMT will out-live myself. What a crazy thought.

Wouldn't be a proper topic if we didn't take it off topic would it Stwa :shock:
