  1. I hate real time games, however Graviteam manage to develop something very special. Take time to learn the UI and you'll love the series. No click fest here. Nothing so far really comes close to CMx2 series and Graviteam series for tactical warfare.
  2. I actually only just finished the book (highly recommended) when I notice the Finnish have just released a war film based on it called Unknown Soldier. It's a long one at 3hrs but blo#dy amazing film with English subs. Can't recommend it enough.
  3. Thanks Wicky. Never thought of that! Of course exhaustion will affect it! Well it's good to see this sort of thing in game I suppose.
  4. Well restarted and again it seems something is odd. HQ spotter has LOS, Mortar unit right next to him. I gave a linear fire order. He procedes to drop rounds in the middle of the field which is half way between spotter and target. Yes it's Road to Nijmegen. As for the Spitfire it was just frustrating seeing him shoot up the same spot every run. Edit: This time he is firing long see save 16. In save 17 I've given more mortar orders. See what happens . Save games
  5. Playing the first battle in a Campaign which I've played previously and I'm certain I never noticed this last time I played it awhile back. Think there are 7 US mortars each with 20 rounds. I doubt 1 round actually landed where I asked them to land. Then the Spitfire comes to strafe. There is a line of three enemy guns and for some reason the pilot only wanted to shoot at one of them which was taken out first strafe yet he became obsessed with it and every pass ignored the other two guns and blasted away at the by now very wasted gun. The outcome of all this means the mission is way more difficult. SO I'm wondering if there is an issue currently with indirect fire and it's accuracy?
  6. I apologise. I never knew there where lots of similar threads.
  7. I still enjoy CM2. I just feel progress on the whole probably hasn't been as quick as BF would have liked, could be wrong here though. It just doesn't seem at all likely we will get to Early East Front with the CM2 engine. I think it's just starting to show some age and with the increase in PC power since CM2 first came out and 64bit there is plenty of horsepower in hand for CM3. Four things I'd love to have\see. SOP's, Rooms in buildings, exciting close combat animations and finally improvement of current infantry animations aswell as more variation. That would do it for me!
  8. If CM3 is coming out it better be early East Front upto end '42!!
  9. I too want to see 41 to end 42. More than any other game\module.
  10. FIRE!!!! I am the god of hell fire.... Still back to game like to see fire spread,
  11. Reviewed at AWNT. Enjoy! Oh just bare with it😁😉 Link to review
  12. Cross of Iron, Stalingrad (German film), Downfall (German film), Aces High, Thin Red Line (controversial choice), Das Boot (suppose a series not film), Waterloo, Zulu, We were soldiers once and young, Apocalypse Now (cliche yawn choice, but amazing), Regeneration, Birdsong(two part series), BBC Our War series esp first episode set at Mons (easy best WW1 dramatization out there) are my favourite films, the recent film about the pacifist medal winner was cool. some decent Russian films recently like the Brest Fortress one, but expect propaganda with Germans being evil useless cannon fodder. Decent film about Warsaw Uprising recently too. When Trumpets Fade is good for a lower budget film. not about fighting but WW2 you can't ignore Shindliers List
  13. Hopefully us at AWNT will do a review and would love to do an interview at some point.
  14. For £90 I will add Fields of Fire first edition, some counters punched and bagged, mint condition.
