  1. I would love to see a 1941/42 period ostfront game from BFC. I would also love to see a 1939/40 period game from same. I'm not betting the farm on my ever actually seeing either thing. BFC is first and foremost a money making venture, aimed at an already small niche market. The main market is American. BFC produces what american consumers want. I dont have to like it. I'm sure they could sell a 1941/42 period game in Russia. And it would sell well. But the hassle of publishing in Russian language, is only the beginning of problems. Russian tax laws, postal system, etc.... Is easier to just cater to Americans.
  2. interesting multiple players? as in more than 2? how does that work?
  3. I suspect that we all develop our own workaround for this.
  4. Get the game. I did. There are as many scenarios as you can create.
  5. All the early T34 models. BT 6 and 7s. T28s Pz II's and III's, and 38Ts Romanians.
  6. A Partisan expansion with older period weapons? Yes I would like this. There were still active partisans in mid/late '44, harrying AGs center and north... which is where (and when) Red Thunder happens.
  7. More variety of uniforms. Puttees, Pilotcas, Older style gimnasterka, etc.
  8. So I downloaded the demo. Looks good. Guess I'll be putting a bit of money aside to buy the game.
  9. It happens far too often. Random everything, and hit [START]. And there is a crowd of panzerjager crews on my setup area, Each with a driver, a gunner, a loader, and a comander... but no vehicles for these crews. So I look around the map, and sure enough, far outside my setup area is a fleet of empty marders. But wait, those marders are in what looks to be the enemy setup zone... or at least far across it. And doesnt a marder have a three (3) man crew? Why do all my crews have four (4) men? Crews will not mount untill that extra man is killed, but then they first go into PANIC and run all over the map for twenty minutes or so This gets most of them killed. So 30 to 40 minutes later, I have a few surviving crews that are able to mount their vehicles. And a few surviving vehicles to mount. Mix and match till I find a crew that CAN mount that vehicle... or not. In the end I have three or four operational marders. But one in stuck inside a building, and another is hung up on a wall. Several more have not surviving crew, and are utterly useless to me. I also have a few crews who's marders were destroyed in the first minute. And some artillery spotters, but no artillery. These are my infantry. Anybody else have this experience?
  10. Could be worse. The crew could be all the way across the map. And have too many men to be able to mount the vehicle.
  11. saw it. Wasnt bad, as a kid's movie. No grog could sit through it without having a stroke
