    Updating Shock Force

    Adding new forces like the Turkish and Iranian armies along with other non-state actors might be a good idea. In fact why not add Syrian/Russian forces as well.
  2. On a similar topic if I'm to use the Allies to cross a river with no ford points what is the ideal unit type(s) to do that ? Bradley can swim I'm guessing. Also, how can I clear mines safely or move through one with safety ?
  3. I liked the tin can battles of early days where a well placed MG42 can actually knock out a Bt7 from close.
  4. Why cant I capture an IG gun, turn it towards enemy and fire it into their massed ranks ? They do similar things in the movies ?
  5. I couldnt see where to open this thread so I try here. If not feel free to move it under the right forum. Are there any plans to give a chance to early WW2 campaigns ? Afrika ? Barbarossa Opening, Stalingrad and uptill and including Kursk ? I've been playing CM games since they first came up and do like to see new expansion sets like BS and SF but I'll appreciate to try the new engine for the earlier tech of WW2.
  6. Is there a place where such 'vintage'' , re-imagined maps are available for the new engine ?
  7. I had around several tens of favorite maps for my CMAK games and would like to import them back into the FB. Can I do that ? If I cant do this, is there a repository for such ol' cmak maps for FB ? I would like re-play them with this new engine. Any help will be much appreciated.

    BTR 82a in Syria

    If there's going to be a sequel, then for the sake of possibilities, Forces from Turkey,Iran and possibly Israel should be modelled in as well.
  9. Just wanted to know if there was one particular scenario that one played over and over, pbem or not. For me it was The Bastogne game, I converted it to CMBB played it PBEM in CMAK and BB many many many times over and even made it into a scenario....

    Thx a lot for the replies. Much appreciated. I believe CM1XX games are still good to go and they deserve a re-write definitely. But Battleftont probably doesnt look at it that way.

    MacOS or Windoze

    Thx a lot, I guess I'll go with the MAC version. What about making the CM1 games work on Lion ? Is there even a rumour about this ? With wineskin etc ?
  13. Hello Everyone, I use a mac and a windows 7 machine. WHich version of the game CMBN should I buy ? The Mac or the Windows. Anyhelp will be greatly appreciated... And one more question, did anyone know how to make CM1XX games work on OS X ? I heard it was possible by using something called Wineskin... regards
