I may be missing something obvious here - one of the features of Harpoon ANW I used a lot was multiple windows, including tracking windows.

I could have the main window showing the overall battle area with another tracking window to show my CVBG, as well as other windows I could set up to follow an ASW engagement for example. Very useful!

Is this available in CMO and I just can't find it?

Thanks

It isn't in CMO. I think the best you can do is use TacView to monitor close in while using the bigger picture. Or you can use the group hot key to quickly switch back and forth.

Thanks.

Seems like a feature that could well be included, but on the whole CMO doesn't seem to be very multiple-windows-based.

I will go looking for a feature suggestion thread.

I have missed this old Harpoon feature very much as well. It may be the top of my list! The Mini Map under map settings is a small consolation and has a small amount of usefullness. Can't hold a candle to the multi window setup though.

Good luck,
John

You do get multiple windows of a different sort, I keep the message window on a 2nd monitor and the DB & Mission window on a 3rd monitor.

The old tracking windows that Harpoon gave you were great but you don't get them in CMO. What you do get is the quick jump keys (Cntl+# to set and then hit the number), which are very handy

You can use minimaps to give you different views of the same theater.

I never used minimaps before (couldn't see any interest to it) so I tried. Each time I open a mini map and resize it to larger, the whole game crashes. :-(

I have never found mini-maps worth the screen real estate loss. It has always worked, but seems very finicky and difficult to read. Its basically a blue blob vs a red blob. Might take a second look to see if I missed something.

I've tried the minimaps but I don't like them.
On the other hand, with a multi-monitor setup I'd love to have several tracking windows. In several scenarios there are lots of things happening at the same time at different places... With the hot-keys it becomes a "click fest" if you try to follow the action!
