    CMRT Module 1 Bones

    This module is not all about Berlin. And how can you have Bagration and Warsaw without partisans? Also, as far as I know, huge swaths of Berlin were not adjacent to a flak tower, and IIRC many of the ones that were there were not attacked directly, but rather subjected to massive artillery barrages. Interesting pix from the S-Bahn, I took that train to work every day when I lived in Berlin...

    CMRT Module 1 Bones

    Would be happy to see large bridges but don't care much about flak towers... And still really hoping for partisans!!
  3. Yeah, the book basically consists of a bunch of excerpts from other books, and I didn't get the digital rights for these excepts. At that time, it wasn't especially relevant, since I don't think that Kindles existed yet! But I have to say, there are some pretty good excerpts in there!
  4. Here is the Amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/Battery-Commander-His-Batman-Cook/dp/097493660X/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1539252514&sr=1-1&keywords=the+cook+batman
  5. Mark's book "Island of Fire" provides a great level of detail on some of the Stalingrad battles, I expect that most if not all of his battles are like this. His book "Objective Ponyri" is similar, although there is not as much content and more pictures (maps). Glantz's books are also very detailed, although it sounds like at a higher level than you are interested in (ie, operational, divisional scale rather than tactical). Also, not to toot my own horn, but many years ago now I wrote a companion book for CMAK which included descriptions of many tactical level actions in the Med theater, including North Africa, Sicily, and Italy. I think you'd find it interesting. I don't see the book on Battlefront's website anymore, but I might have copy or two lying around, would have to check. Also, from when I wrote that book, I seem to recall that some excellent New Zealand regimental histories were available for free online, but it has been many years, so you would have to look around.

    Dust clouds!

    So smoke and dust is now in effect a bullet-proof shield? Isn't that a bit troubling?
  7. 👍 Now get to work on those scenarios! 😎
  8. Maps? I've got maps...take a look at these links, not sure if they cover that exact area, but some of them should: Link showing which mapsheets you need German maps Polish Maps More Polish and German maps Russian Maps More Russian maps
  9. My computer's C drive is almost full, while I have massive space on my D Drive, so I want to install all of my Battlefront games to my D Drive. However, when I went to install CMBN, I did not get any choice at all for where I get to install the game. I think this is the only program I've tried to install in the last 15 years that did that--is there any way to install onto a D drive (which is in my computer, not a network drive)? I searched for this topic, but did not find any threads... [EDIT]: Weird, I just went back and tried to re-install again, and this time I seem to be able to install to the D drive, at least so far...

    Installing to D Drive?

    @PIATpunk, mission accomplished, so far no problems, thanks again for your tips!

    Installing to D Drive?

    Great, thanks again for the super-helpful info. Will try to tackle this tomorrow!

    Installing to D Drive?

    Thanks, that very helpful and interesting...but two more questions: 1) any idea if I would need to re-install the games which use files in these directors for the games to work? Having just reinstalled all of my games to the D drive, I'm not keen to repeat the process for the games which store files in the Documents folder... 2) I I put these directories on my NAS, any idea if it would impose a significant performance hit? I'm thinking that usually files stored in these locations are accessed when loading/saving games rather than while playing them, but wanted to see if anyone has a better idea?

    Installing to D Drive?

    Sorry, how do you do this? I actually have plenty of space on my C drive, but would rather put my documents folder onto my NAS, which is backed up regularly...

    Installing to D Drive?

    Thanks, I've gotten it working, not sure what the problem was the first time. Maybe something to do with spending most of the day uninstalling and reinstalling about twenty games, dunno... 😵
  15. Hi, I've never used Scan_Cade before, but now am trying to use it to unpack all of the CMRT campaigns into scenarios. But I can't get it to work under Win10 with the latest version of CMRT... Anyone else having this problem? Generally, it will only create on scenario file for each campaign, and even then the scenario file is often corrupted (or at least it crashes CMRT for me). If I can't get Scan_Cade to work, can anyone point me to or send me the individual scenario files for any of the following campaigns? Zitadelle-Dragonwynn The Last Panzer-Dragonwynn Rattenkrieg-Dragonwynn Kampgruppe von Schroif-GeorgeMC Rokossovky's Impasse-The Phantom Also, does anyone know if the campaigns included in the game (Hammers Flank, Blunting the Spear) use unique maps, or do they use maps already included in other scenarios/Quick Battle maps? I'm trying to do another update of my CMRT map database (see link in my sig), and would finally like to include campaign maps as well; map authorship is indicated in the database.
  16. hmmm, good point, although let's face it wolves are way sexier than bears, which is really the whole point of this kind of shirt.
  17. Sheesh, let's not overdo it! 😁
  18. Waaaay too boring...I had something like this in mind (just a rough mock-up, mind you): Sweeeeet!!!!
  19. My inability to wear a sweet Combat Mission T-shirt to the local watering hole has cost me God knows how many opportunities with the ladies... Add some wolves to the T-shirt and I'm sure that they'd sell like hotcakes.
  20. Have you read Barbarossa Unleashed, by Luther? I haven't read Fugate, but Luther's book is my favorite on Barbarossa so far. But of course you haven't read "unkind" towards the German military until you've read Stahel's books, all based on German sources...

    Another pitch for the partisans: it seems like most of the other additions (German and Lend-Lease vehicles, some of the German troops) were probably ported over from the other games/modules (CMFB, etc.), so it would be great to get something truly new in this module!

    CMRT Module 1 Bones

    Understood, but that is all the more reason to include partisans! Although I'll certainly buy the game in any event. Personally I like partisans because they allow you to create entirely different kinds of battles, whereas choosing between various flavors of German infantry/fusiliers/grenadiers/jaegers/etc adds much less to game-play diversity.

    CMRT Module 1 Bones

    Actually, I thought the CMRT module was to flesh out the campaign reflected in CMRT and to extend it through the end of the war. Partisans were actively involved in the campaign reflected in CMRT. And with all due respect, I see a lot of new German units, vehicles, etc. Soviets get Lend-Lease vehicles, not clear how many.

    Wow, great news, thanks for the update. My only disappointment is the lack of reference to partisans, although I'm holding out hope on the basis of "However, there's still a few new things we can give you to play with..."
