  1. Thanks. I don't have CW so do I need a 1.10 patch before the 1.11 patch or are patches cumulative (I think they are?)? Gerry
  2. Hello All: Thinking about installing CMBN again because of Bil's training scenarios. I realize I will have to buy the 2.0 engine upgrade or the MG + Upgrade bundle. Assume I am starting the install with the original CMBN. Do I need to install a series of patches too or is it a case of the original CD plus the 2.0 engine upgrade? I am confused! Bil also mentions CMBN 2.10. I believe this means a future patch after the engine upgrade? Thanks, Gerry
  3. Hello Bil: A fantastic idea. A wish and a comment: 1. Any chance you could set the scenarios up for the original CMBN or CMFI. If I can follow your scenarios I thought it might help me rekindle my interest in the series. I would really like not have to buy more to try them. 2. I don't like QBs. I just like to play scenarios because of their historical nature. I am wondering if I can handle your training scenarios will the game scenarios still be too daunting in terms of complexity and workload? It seems scenarios are getting bigger in terms of number of units? And I also see in one of the AARs that we now have a 2-hour scenario. Thanks, Gerry
  4. Sorry, I meant in terms of the number of units. It seems there are just a few units unless a lot more come in as reinforcements? Thanks, Gerry
  5. Hello Noob: What size scenario is this in PzC? Enjoying the write-up by both of you. Gerry
  6. Hello Noob: Maybe it would be better if you played one other person and both posted what was happening in the PzC game? You could better showcase your system with a faster turnaround time? Gerry
  7. Hello Noob: Very interesting and a great idea. Tiller has so many titles so this idea could carry forth into any area Battlefront are planning. Hope it's OK to ask questions here? Or should I do that in another thread? Wondering what KOSB stands for. I assume it is something like King's Own .... Thanks, Gerry
  8. Before your M10 was knocked out I thought it had a side view on both a Pz IV and the Brummbar? From one of you previous pics. Gerry
  9. This is the way I see it now. It seems it has great potential to be a training tool for the military. Gerry
  10. "And as someone pointed out, it's possible that the LOS that I had when I placed the bunker was better than it has eventually turned out to be" I know someone said this but how can this be? This is a game that tracks every bullet. In terms of spotting Womble raised the issue that all the problems were on Gaj's side. Well in the previous AAR I remember Bil being pretty ticked when his stationary Shermans didn't spot Gaj's moving PzIVs. Gerry
  11. An interesting discussion. I must say that watching this AAR for me is more like watching some clinical operation taking place. I think it is very boring. Seems more like completing a work project than having fun in a wargame. Gerry
  12. I think Seedorf was raising questions about the spotting in the game. But some people don't want to think that is a possibility. It does seem strange that 2 ATGs are lost w/o firing a shot. Does not seem realistic? Gerry
  13. Thanks everyone. It worked today even though I am not quite sure what I did differently. Maybe I was put off by the combo orange-black targeting line? I thought there was also a Target Wide command or is that only for artillery? Gerry
  14. Hello All: I thought the procedure was: - Mtr unit to be in command - HQ has LOS to target area - Give a target order to the Mtr unit. Cannot get it to work. Units are Green; does that matter? Thanks, Gerry
  15. Assuming at ATG team wanted to hide a 76mm in that location in RL, how would they try to conceal it more? Would they dig a pit for example to reduce its profile? Gerry
  16. I just don't understand how they feel they can leave things like this out of the manual. It is poor customer service. And people are paying $50+ for each game with modules around $35. It seems to me that the customers deserve better service. It is unfair to have customers have to set up tests to figure out something that someone in the company obviously knows. Gerry
  17. It would have been interesting to see what would have happened if the 2 PzIVs survived a bit longer. For sure unopposed armor killed it at the end. Gerry
  18. Bottom right of screen, click Login. Go to bottom right of that screen and you will see the Register button. Gerry
  19. Curious why they don't do an AAR of a scenario even if the scenarios are in playtest. This would give both players a more balanced forced for the relative tasks at hand. And remove the part of the debate about force selection. Maybe would give BF a chance to highlight better the new forces in the game. Gerry
  20. Nice AAR by both of you. I applaud GAJ for taking on Bil, who in my mind at least, has a 2-0 record in these AARs. Obviously a very strong opponent. Gerry
  21. Hello Bil: It looks like you are not splitting squads? I have read where people do not split squads. But with lethal mortars etc. it always seemed a recipe for disaster to me. Not splitting would sure cut down on the micro-management. Gerry
  22. Hello All: 1) Sometimes there are multiple victory locations on a map. How do you know what each is worth? Seems it would make a huge difference to your plans. 2) Is there a chart that shows the amount of cover by different terrain types? Thanks in advance, Gerry
