    I saw that in the Russian mission as well, noticed that when I used the Panzerschrek against the half track that it blew up but there was no visible damage...wasted a perfectly good shaped charge on a destroyed vehicle..
    Also, in the British Missions, during "Crossroads" I kept getting a wierd error, the game halted and said something about too many of something and it happened twice. I disable console and it works fine. :eek:
    My son was playing it and noticed that in the house during the battle for Caen, you can literally get stuck between a table and a wall and not move.
    I noticed when I was attempting to follow the tank and press "F" for the sticky bomb, I came between the wall and the tank and I was not killed, the game allowed me to be pushed up and over the edge of the tank.
    I also noticed, regardless of the level, in the tank missions, the Crusader occasionally starts to give me some wierd stop frame activity when I turn left or right suddenly but it evens out when I press the space bar and line up the chassis with the turret.
    Has anyone had a Stuka literally blow up when your using the Oerlikin quad and it crashes right into you without effect..LOL. I repeated that on easy and veteran levels and it's amusing.:p
    Has anyone drove your crusader through a german tank yet...LOL (thats a hoot):rolleyes:
    I recommend that you all try to sneak up on the germans in the post office during the American mission and use melee to kill everyone...it is actually easier than shooting them I think.:)
    I also noticed that the red beret'd officer in the british missions does not have sync voice overs, the audio plays literally a second before the mouth movements and gestures finish..:rolleyes:
    And MacGregor, he repeats himself pretty often...I think I heard him during the Russian missions as well warning me about the MG 42's...:rofl:
    I wish I could see a tank destroyer during the American missions, the Tigers are sooooo easy to kill.

    I recommend that you save a Panzerscrek before you continue on with a portion of the American French town mission, it comes in handy..:taste:

    Against the 88's during the english mission, I noticed I could with some skill hop back and forth and toss grenades right, but I have never been able to toss a grenade back, has anyone else?:confused:

    And screen shots folks, I would love to see the lovely vistas. ;)

    "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded ​
    state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is ​
    much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, ​
    nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable ​
    creature, and has no chance of being free unless made or kept so by the ​
    exertions of better men than himself."​
    - John Stuart Mill​

    - Napoleon Bonaparte​
    "There's a graveyard in northern France where all the dead boys from D-Day are ​
    buried. The white crosses reach from one horizon to the other. I remember ​
    looking it over and thinking it was a forest of graves. But the rows were like ​
    this, dizzying, diagonal, perfectly straight, so after all it wasn't a forest ​
    but an orchard of graves. Nothing to do with nature, unless you count human ​
    nature."​

    Doesn't mean he didn't contribute anything. He sure knew how to rule his people. I think you are missing a quote in there.

    The one where it says something about how sometimes we forget that people died for the freedoms that we enjoy. That is also a fav, I was looking in the list and couldn't find it.

    With terror and democide? Anyone who kills 20,000,000 (30,000,000 - 50,000,000 by some estimates) people did not contribute anything but death and destruction, and its rediculous and ignorant to conclude anything to the contrary.

    I completely disagree, even the most evil of people can contribute something good to the world.

    Edit: sure it doesn't mean that they are not evil, but it doesn't mean that they did not contribute anything to society at all. I'm not comparing the things he did, I'm just saying that everything he did was not evil.

    No......just a 6 cd game,just don't know why the creators opted for that,(except for the most obvious of course as dvd drives are very cheap) i did neglect to see the ebay listing did state that.. :duh:

    any way did know the is a soundtrack and extras to it,but @ around £45 for it,no game is worth that amount....

    Weird thing is the tank had three positions where to put the stick bombs. If I put the boms on any of the tracks, the whole tank would blow then. Once this happened the game kept on going. I finally put the bomb on the back, and it let me proceed. Weird...

    That is the same fix for SS2, yet they to uncheck 1 since it's the second core.

    OK I don't get it.

    Game has been working fine, until I'm doing the british campaign on the first mission in Tunisia. Everytime I face the ennemy, the game lags at such a tremendable rate that I can't play. All other missions work fine :(

    My system :

    Ati Radeon 9800PRO(5.11 CATA)
    3.0ghz P4(northwood core)
    1gb of ram.

    Any ideas !?!?!

    Does anyone have Club 3D Nvidia GF 6600GT AGP here?
    Does CoD2 works on your comp. ?
    Do you have legal or cracked version of the game?

    Here doesn't work.
    Possibly bad crack.
