  1. Yeah let me grab my leather Jacket. I would love to see something Pacific , even if it were Okinawa and Philippines also some China-Burma thrown in. With these Battles anything near the beaches could be avoided, thereby allowing the current engine to handle it. But I know, not popular enough. So my next wish would be eastern Front 41-43

    Gauging Combat Mission Interest

    i was an exception, I liked the Soviets , always admired them
  3. My system ASUS p6t , intell core I7 975, two AMD 7850's "crossfired", and I have two hard drives that I have set up for multi boot to Windows 10, 7 or XP. Its getting long in the tooth but it plays all my games well. I still play all my CMx1 games on it usually booting into XP, however I can run them in WIndows 7 with "minor" graphical issues, e.g. some buttons don't show up until i "mouse over" them, but the games are playable. I have not tried CMx1 on Windows 10 yet.
  4. North Africa has a lot going for it I'd say, The Americans WERE there after Operation Torch, you have Rommels DAK, The British, The Italians, The vichy French if the Battlefront team puts them in. I think it would sell well imo. However with a new game engine I can already see us all begging for more theatres, Italy, France and Russia. Its all good to me though, Anything new in WW2 and you can count me in for a copy,

    Combat Mission future

    I agree Erwin, I still play CM1 in addition to all the WW2 CM2 stuff. I like CMAK a lot still, I can get my fix of North Africa, the Italians, British Grants vs MKIII's near Gazala etc. Also on the Russian front we have early Russian and German afv's plus the Finns

    CMx1 Please Don't DIE!

    I have all CM1 titles and all the WW2 CM2 ones. IMO CMAK is the best of all time.

    Could there be a CM Korea?

    Whatever happened to the days when Buggs Bunny said " Of course you realize this means war" and he declared war.
  9. No kidding though Combat Mission T-Shirts would be great. Maybe with several choices of a tank on the shirt. A Tiger, King Tiger, Panther, Jagdpanther, IS-2, Sherman Jumbo.
  10. The possibilities are endless. "Combat Mission" breakfast cereal (similar to Cap'n Crunch) "Combat Mission" comic books. Etc. ☺️

    A long delayed update

    I was crimson with rrrrage at the egregious impertinence! The derisive mockery was exceeded only by their sheer hauteur.
  12. I played "Tobruk" in late 70's to date myself, then "Squad Leader" and its gamettes in the 80's made me forget Tobruk and finally ASL came along before the days of computer games. Remember a certain scenario I think it was called " The clash of armor" where a few Grant tanks tried to hold off a whole bunch of MK III H and J panzers? Fun times. I always thought desert combat is interesting, not dull like most of the others think, it had a certain mystique for me. Well there's still CMAK of the CM1 series, I have not played it in a while though, seems like there was a bit of an immersion problem for scenarios with the "Flak 88" used in an anti tank role. They did not seem to be quite the devastating weapon in the game that they were for Rommel.

    What will the next CM be?

    Well of course it will be CMPB , Combat Mission Panzer Blitz. You even used the logo for your profile picture.

    Fire in the future?

    Well I would agree that better looking fortifications are probably something easier to do with less frame rate hits. Something needs to be done about the "foxhole sandbags" I think. To me they look like big life rafts aka inflatable rubber boats. I understand there are limitations because of game engines and computer horsepower that are going to keep 'realistic features" like fires, horses, hand to hand combat, naval gunfire etc out of the game.

    Fire in the future?

    Kindling, persistent fires with spreading fire possibilities is one of the most needed elements the game still needs imo. There should also of course be modifiers to these effects, from wind, damp, wet or dry conditions etc.
