  1. I agree with the original poster. It feels like they are simply getting slower. Perhaps its age.
  2. Most recent book was Rick Atkinson's "The British our Coming". It describes the first two years of the Revolutionary War. Excellent.
  3. Watched Generation War on AmazonPrime over the last two nights. Had heard it was "German Band of Brothers". Not really. Overall the acting was excellent, the characters were interesting, but not well done from a strictly military/historical perspective. Spoilers below: 1) I don't think it is realistic that the group of 5 main friends includes a Jewish one. This group was born in 1921, and they certainly all would have been in the hitler youth. Is it really likely that they would have maintained friendship with an openly Jewish character through the summer of 1941? Seems unlikely to me. 2) The one brother is a leiutenant in the Wehrmacht and has seen service in Poland and France. He then goes on to Russia. In 1943 at the battle of Kursk he is still a lieutenant! No way. If this guy has survived that long without injury and is not a total **** up he would have been promoted at least once probably twice. Survival was a good way to get promoted in WW2. 3) One of the characters is a Nurse. It appears she stays with the exact same unit for her entire War experience between 1941-1945. Is that really likely? 4) The lieutenant's younger brother is an enlisted man in his own platoon. I have trouble believing that that would be allowed in the Wehrmacht or any army. 5) The most egregious thing to me is: Why do the Russians have panzerfausts at the battle of Kursk? The Germans don't even have them! 6) Not really good portrayal of German small unit infantry tactics? When assautling the factory, where is the MG34? Why are they using submachine guns to suppress. 7) Polish people did not like the portrayal of the partisans being anti-semitic. I actually was not bothered by this. There were Polish partisan groups that would shoot jews and were anti-semitic. However, other groups did take in Jews and still other groups were primarily Jewish. 😎 Was a bit surprised at how "replacements" were dealt with in show. Seemed like replacements were raw recruits straight from Repo Depot ala US army. My understanding is that in the German Army they would go into a "replacement battalion" where they would be given combat experience before being dolled out to other units.
  4. Latest version of scenario. Save Paul!.btt
  5. I made this scenario to honor my step-father who was a 19 year old aid-man during this battle (just turned 93). It is based on a battle faught by the CCR of the 5th armored division on November 25, 1944. I have made a little sub-game in which the player can get points for not getting Paul killed and using him to treat wounded soldiers (no cheating!). I would appreciate feedback. Save Paul!.btt
  6. How do I specify where camera is when Scenario loads?
  7. Just a follow up. I was able to do the modification I wanted using Steinfische's CombatMissionUniversal Utility. It stores the extracted files in a temp folder and this allows you to edit them with the scenario editor and repack them. The only thing you still can't do is modify the core units file itself.
  8. I want to modify the Monte Cassino Campaign as there are is a problem in the second scenario (Can't access big gun battery because no forward observer) . I used Mike's ScAn_CaDe tool to unpack the scenarios, and made the modifications using the scenario editor. I then made a new campaign script to create a new campaign using the first scenario as the core unit file. Unfortunately, this does not seem to work. The problem is that in the editor it says "core unit" next to the formation, and the unpacker does not seem to make a true core unit file. I tried making a new core unit file by picking the exact same units and making the names the same, but it still does not work. Any thoughts?
  9. Have they implemented a follow command for road movement in the newest upgrades? They were discussing this a while back, but I'm not sure if it was implemented.
  10. Why not have a flag to make micromanagement not so tedious? Another nice feature would be a "show area targeting" toggle, like they have for movement paths.
  11. One of the things I find annoying is how troops behave when they first come under fire. Unless they are hunting, they generally speed up and run to their destination point until they get pinned down. I'd love to see a toggle or flag that allows them one of two different behaviors, either go for it (what they do now), or stop.
  12. I agree with futon river crossing. At this point, I am looking for gameplay upgrades. I will be passing on FB as well.
  13. Pelican Pal: Thanks for the defense. Frankly, I have given up on this board because there are so many _holes around. With regards to the game, I did play around the bug for a while, but I was just running into too many situations where I did strange things because I couldn't enter buildings, so I stopped playing. While I am glad to hear a patch is underway, it seems to me that the problem was fixed in CMFI over a month ago (when the 3.0 patch came out), so I was baffled at why there was no fix for CMRT. Are the DRM issues really that different between the two games? Now BF releases another pay-for product and still no patch. My perspective is that six months is a long time to fix a bug. It either wasn't a high priority, or there was a competence issue. Either way, it makes me reluctant to give BF any more of my money.
  14. I've been waiting six months for the damn patch. I will not be buying any more products from battlefront period.
  15. ASL, I'm not sure what you are reading, but I have never seen anything approaching apologetic language from BF. What I wrote is to try and show what I expect from good customer service/relations. If I go out to eat and they screw up the order, it is quite common for them to be quite apologetic and comp me some part of the bill. Some places will, some won't. Guess which ones I go back to? Basically, BF has needlessly antagonized me as a customer. I just wanted to point out that it didn't need to happen. Warren
