    Athlon 64 3500, 7600 GT, 1 GB. Runs very well even with pretty much maxed out settings.

    It's out now?? Woohoo, ordering time!


    The US version is out. 29th in Europe. Didn't want to wait 10 more days as I need something to play now and there's too much coming out in October anyhow. :)

    3.0 GHz is the recommended spec, not the minimum one.

    God, this game is just fantastic.

    We need to get some mp action going once a few people have it! The way I understand it, you can mix cpu and humans axis vs allies like you want, whether it's coop against the AI or 3 vs 3 or whatever.



    Is this the place where I can now ridicule the people who called The Outfit a CoH killer? ;)

    On the mission select screen it has a 'Campaign' tab, but the only one you can select is Invasion of Normandy.

    Are more campaigns unlocked later in the game or is it just a placeholder for an expansion or somthing ?

    I wasn't quite sure what you meant. Ai cheating, or anything? :)

    The campaign is extraordinarily good. Very varied, no annoying missions, well balanced (I am about half way through).

    Skirmish rocks, too, but it's HAAAAARD!

    Wow this is the fourth highest rated game ever in Metacritic's PC list. That is seriously impressive.

    I love it when you get a stunner like this without much hype or fanfare.

    There was lots of both, if you ask me, console-centric EG forum notwithstanding. :)

    Reallly? The first I heard of it was very recently, and I love my PC games.

    BTW I love the fact that instead of giving the PC its own platform column on metacritic, its grouped with Dreamcast and Ngage under others. Dreamcast and Ngage FFS.

    When is the EG review of this coming?

    Really impressed with this so far.

    But......


    Say you`ve got a rifle squad and you capture an anti-tank gun (for example),how do you tell them to dismount the gun and carry on on foot?


    Also,can you disband a unit totally?

    Guys,

    Can anyone provide me with a torrent link for the demo?

    My fantastic plusnet connection has just dropped again (3rd attempt downloading the 2gig file, got as far as 50%).

    Thanks in advance

    edit: for D_ark

    yes and yes.

    I have moved machine gun turrets but I wasnt very happy at the placement, almost certainly due to lack of understanding but I quite often had the moved machine gunners facing the wrong way :p

    Pretty sure you can disband a unit in the sam way you can resupply a unit, you have to be close to a headquarters of some such.

    Maybe I should just buy it. That Game special edition looks tempting, especially with Dawn of War included.

    The demo for this is on PC Gamer's cover disc this month, but will my drive register the disc? Will it buggery.

    I've had this on preorder for so long, it's a little frightening that it's actually nearly here!

    THIS SPACE FOR RENT

    Just hold the right mb down when you give the move order, and you'll get a graphical overlay thingy that shows you facing and such. For AT guns and MGs.

    I've just read the EG review.

    Is it anything like World War II Frontline Command?

    Not that it matters. My PC was too crap to play that too.

    I don`t think I was clear enough (apologies) in my previous post about the ability to disband units.


    I figured out how to change the cone of fire for AT and machine guns etc,what I wanted to do was to make the troops who are manning the guns totally drop the weapons and regroup as a rifle company.

    Better still,if Im nearing the population cap,to disband certain units (say for example a rifle company) so as to be able to build different ones (a new engineer squad?).

    Hope that makes sense.

    I'm tempted by that GAME special edition. I hadn't even thought about getting this, but the EG 10/10s I've played really have been that. Also, not having Dawn of War would make it extra nice. Whether I actually get round to playing that is another matter.

    Can't be done, unfortunately. All you can do is suicide any units you want rid of into the enemy base. :(
