If you ask for what graphics options there are: not too many. You can set resolution to anything you want, and have the range at which the grass and detailed terrain is displayed, to longer didstances. In principle, that's it. AA and AF you can set via your gfx driver.

Hope this was what you wanted to ask.

Chances are that you can run the sim on any system around these days - also on older ones: I ran it until this spring on a system from 2004 or so - and a standard system that was at its time, nothing special.

Just avoid to carelssly set the grass lsider to maximum - that sometimes can kill any system there is.

I forgot: best advise is to check out the videos. This series gives you 1 day of multiplayer action in WWIII, condensed and summarised in 6 videos of around 1 hour in total. It starts in dark, yes, but you can move forward if you want. If you are after MP, this is what you need to see.

Brave Rifles - Zipuli - January-March 2011 (multiplayer)
part 1:
part 2:
part 3:
part 4:
part 5:
part 6 (The Final) :

From the dawn of day one to the afternoon of the second day - 36 hours of intense fighting in the 90s, when the cold war suddenly turned hot! This is a great multiplayer battle being done, telling the story of events in more than one hour of video!

Thanks for all the answers, I have good machines and cards, so setting becomes less of a problem .. with AA and AF

Can we please remember not to copy the graphical content when quoting Gerald....in all fairness Steve has already pointed this out to you recently.

As we are all well aware....bandwidth costs money.

TIA

No, it is not about money it is more a case of using bandwidth and lengthening the time other board users that have slow connections will require to access the thread.

been truly amazing in all aspects from the default product. Fixing and
supporting the software is just a part of the work the main part is to
produce from the default product a stellar Tank Simulation that this
game's engine has to offer.

Don't worry, I did not take it as an accusation, just a possible misunderstanding.

*For the record*

I did not ask you to delete the complete post and feel disappointed you felt the need to resort to public sarcasm.

If you wish to continue this dialogue/exchange I would appreciate the vehicle of use be via PM.

It was a voluntary decision to delete and make changes, and there was no sarcasm from my side!
