  1. On 6/8/2019 at 5:16 PM, Sequoia said: Really appreciate the screenshots. Any chance for a shot of Indian troops and Moroccan Goumiers ? Thanks! As far as I remember it, the Goumiers might not show up despite all the points I provided for having them with the French Corp. They played a major part in the French's battles in particular at Monte Cassino, breaching the defense and opening the way to Rome for the allied forces.
  2. Sburke, once you get into the Foreign Legion,being a foreigner, they keep all your papers, like passport, Id cards ………..If you leave before your term you are researched as an AWOL at least or a deserter at the best. You better not be found on a French soil later on.
  3. You are nearly all the way right. I was in Algeria at the time of the war, younger to be in the Army but able to see many things. I also had many opportunities to meet Foreign Legion troopers and officers (quite a few German) and other regular officers that had returned from Indochina, either when the troops left or when they were liberated from the Viets POW's camps. Yes, the FLN had been brought to a near collapse. The Army had its share, but also the special Ops that triggered an FLN Blue on Blue internal fight, many thinking that others were traitors, they killed each other leaders. That was an almost untold dirty war. today the French Army is highly regarded for its intervention in Mali and Syria. The Air Force was able to deploy their attack fighters and troops in Mali few years ago within a delay never achieved d by the US. They did recognize it humbly. LLF do not have the French fighting the US in your scenario, that is not credible ! Close things might happen in a battleground, but Coms are there to prevent Blue on Blue and fratricide errors.
  4. I fully agree with you FoxZz and Combatintman. The French Army and its equipments are not really well known to many peoples and that is unfortunate. I have tried to raise some interest from BF for including them in Nato. I think today that some lack of interest from quite a few potentials customers could be the main reason for not having convinced Steve. We have to understand that in order to do the French Army a lot of time will be needed. Since time and money are directly related, first in the making of a game and second in its sales, I do understand that as long as the balance tilts on the wrong side, it would be unwise to do the venture. That could cost a lot of money to BF, therefore preventing them or slowing them, to do the follow on of the games being asked by the customers following a well thought time schedule. That is surely the way it is, till customers for the French Army would be so numerous that it will become a good choice.
  5. The install will be done on C:\ by default C:\Program files(x86) \ Battlefront \ combat Mission Shock Force 2 Check that it is there and that the Data folder(in which are the Brz files) has been copied in it. If not you must do again the install
  6. I forgot to mention that the WIP area seen on the map has been done at the time of its release on Fewgoodmen.
  7. Thanks Combatintman for mentioning my work. The map can be played H2H and or QB. It is available here : http://www.thefewgoodmen.com/tsd3/cm-black-sea/cm-black-sea-add-ons-maps/__trashed/ If that can help you here are some shots of the airport multi stories facilities with damages done to it and an overall view of the map area.
  8. That's a very good idea. Let me know when you have done it. Cheer
  9. You can visualize a 3:30 minutes video of the battle of 1 hour I fought against the Russians attacking my airport positions. The setting of the forces is set at Medium. I think that a higher setting will slow the game and too many troops on the map will not help at all the player. Beside it will be unrealistic IMHO.
  10. Thanks Splinty and Erwin. If you notice anything wrong, please let me know and give as much detail as you can cheer
  11. Being away with only my tablet and with the expert help of Bootie the file is now available at FGM. www.thefewgoodmen.com/tsd3/download/Donetz-airport-4550-x-2700attack.zip Have a good playing time. Thanks again for your renewed patience all along the WIP time.,
  12. Bootie, please check your in box for a message. Up to now I have not received your mail ? Remaining Greg
  13. No mail up to now, will check again tomorrow morning Cheer
  14. Thanks Bootie. However I have not received, unless I have made a mistake, any spam having something to do with my request. Could you send a Copy of it in BF message. I am away from home, till 22nd or 23rd July, with my tablet and I have An erratic internet connection ! Upon its receipt I will attempt to load the file. Remaining, Greg
  15. Still awaiting an answer from FGM about my request for an author account that would enable me to upload the file. I made it last Wednesday. Hope it won't be too long now.
