  1. Is this mod still available somewhere for download? Couldn't find it at Greenasjade __________________ Never mind found file in forum string
  2. To correct my earlier post Does the latest 4.0 upgrade incorporate the 4.01patch?
  3. Title says it all. Will get Big Bundle Upgrade today for all my Battle Front titles. But does it have the 4.0 patch already incorporated or do I have to download patch separately to install after upgrade.?
  4. Yeah-I'm reading ... https://www.amazon.com/Blitzed-Drugs-Third-Norman-Ohler/dp/1328663795/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1488765168&sr=8-1&keywords=blitzed I am not trying to take away what he did. I don't know if he even took it that day (unless someone comes up with some kind of documents on what was supplied to units. And even then..) Not looking to get in a forum fight or a locked thread. Was thinking since this battle is so well documented if there is any indication how much rest he had beforehand. Have some pretty knowledgeable people here. Just looking for a timeline. FWIW People can then form their own private opinions.
  5. Anyone have a timeline/logs/references? I understand the Germans just arrived and Wittmann on his own attacked. On the road and attack was there any point that shows he had rest/sleep?
  6. Yes in the movie and in this photo taken July 15th it is pretty obvious the lighter grey blouse on Stauffenberg.
  7. StieliAlpa- Forgot to thank you for your observation to. Thanks.
  8. Yeah you nailed the scene. And I would agree with your observation about directors and cinematographers. Recommend the movie. Cruise as Stauffenberg??? He is very believable.
  9. Thanks Michael Emrys. Maybe-here is a scene from YouTube. I couldn't find any graphic, color plate or color picture to match this blouse to that particular time period depicted 43-44. All kind of blouses in these scenes for comparison. May have been a deliberate production value to make the character stand apart.
  10. I was watching the movie VALKYIRE and the actor Kenneth Branagh [playing General Henning Von Tresckow ] was wearing this officers blouse. Was this green common for Generals-Officers OR all ranks in the summertime? M36? Wool? Honestly never saw a blouse this green.
  11. Wondered about it. So I went looking. http://www.3squadron.org.au/subpages/Stauffenberg.htm
  12. Well even if you weren't Jewish or have a Jewish name it could get 'complicated'. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gotthard_Heinrici
  13. It's Right-Cheer. http://cmmodsiii.greenasjade.net/?p=4289 Well at the site I'm listed as the author-but really it's hard to tell who is the sole author since CMFDR put as much in as I did in research. And he uncovered sources I couldn't find. Thanks CMFDR! Screen-captures below. Lozenge Shaped regular forces, HQ icons (round shaped only) and Round shaped regular forces respectively.
  14. When did these fall out of favor? Or is anyone able to tell me that they are still allowed on modern dress uniforms. They lend a quiet elegance to a military uniform next to the highway bill boards literally mounted on peoples chest on today's uniform. Those THINGS just don't drape well on a persons chest. I know when I was in the USAF in early 80's they allowed embroidered specialty badges and ranks before we changed over to the bus driver uniforms-that is my only encounter of everyday military uniforms with embroidery. Photos of General Doolittle, Field Marshal Alan-Brooke and General Eisenhower to illustrate my point on ribbons. Okay they are Generals-but I have seen pictures of enlisted with these sort of medals.
  15. I'm back from travel and I hope to have it uploaded by Sunday. We just need to have the readmes/icon key reference finetuned
  16. amidali:

    The mod is ready for release. Except-We (CMFDR and myself) need the small icon reference and readme translated into Italian. We want a readme and icon key in English, French and Italian.

    Would you be able to do it? I have it in a small zip file and I can send you the link to download. The documents are not very big.

  17. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4WdULP5kioDVE1keWN0c2lTcTg/view?usp=sharing

     

    Here you go-readme. Please proof and translate. One will remain TEXT one with the icons will be pdf'd. Like to have one in English, French, Italian.

  18. I'm back. Tired. I'll upload a reference card I intend to include for your review. Intend to upload everything Sunday to Jade.

    Will be icons, readme and reference key.

  19. We certainly will upload to Greensajade. However, I want to include a small pdf readme that matches the in game icons with thumbnail actual screen captures from Italian Army docs. I foresee maybe 2 or 3 weeks. It would be sooner but I'm without real computer resources/utilities to do that while on travel. I already cleaned up/fixed the HQ's icon that has an uneven blur on one side.
  20. Had to rename one file with the wrong name. It was a BLUE HQs Icon misidentified as RED. Corrected file can be found in corrected mod. Ignore the link in first post. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4WdULP5kioDX2I3NU82WldwZkE/view?usp=sharing
  21. Sorry for the format of the above post. Not easy when posting thoughts, link and mult-screenshots.
  22. I want to thank CMFDR –this mod would not be able to be accomplished without source material provided and suggestions given. Also again want to thank amidali who helped with the translations. The link to the BETA Royal Italian Army Icons is here. PLEASE read the short README! https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4WdULP5kioDZ0ZLT1BiT2VuUDA/view?usp=sharing As I stated in another post: “Nearly Everyone either fudges it with NATO/Wehrmacht or small pictures. Not CMFDR/Tempestzzzz. So this is a first. The real deal-Royal Italian Army Tactical Map Symbols! And we're pretty proud of that. It may be a little jarring for the eye when you see it first on your screen because all of us have been raised on NATO and Wehrmacht Tactical Signs. You may go back to that-but at least your horizons were broadened. Right? I should add we have quite a few historical resources to draw on-but every icon used won't be present since there are some units Not in the Royal Italian Army depicted in FI/Gustav Line (i.e. SNIPERS and ANTITANK infantry units (like Bazooka and Panzershreck). Certainly no Heavy or Medium Tanks. “ Below is some screenshots in what it looked on my computer. The first screenshot show Regular Force Italian Icons with Lozenge shape. The second screenshot shows Round Shape. You choose which ones you want. The screenshot with green round icons is what you use with the Italians playing as BLUE force." The icon selection will be expanded if future modules should they have more Italian Unit specialties. Currently the icons we are using are only Royal Italian Army units in Fortress Italy and Gustav Line game. Also, the final release will be in BRZ format and a key to the signs. The future Non BETA release will also include a tactical sign reference an actual screenshot of the Royal Italian Army actual icon depicted from a source document. CMFDR and I don't want you to think we made these icons up. Hope you enjoy. Please leave comments and suggestions. I’m on travel for 2 weeks but will monitor from iPad. CMFDR can also answer your queries to. If it appears this is a big production for a small mod-let me just say-researching a few of these icons wasn't easy. Not a whole lot on the INTERNET. The work felt like a Big Production. Italian Round HQ's icon here (optional use-MOD-TAGGED [HQ's icon very similar to infantry unit icon [as in real life]) The Regular Units are Lozenge shape in this screen shot-But Round shape Regular Units look the same as HQ round icon. Regular Unit Icons- Lozenge Shape Italian BLUE Force Icons-Round shape only.
  23. We getting close to posting a BETA for people to comment/ critique on and put in their Z Folder to use. Download link we be posted here in MODS. Final product at GreenJades site. CMFDR and myself had quite a lot of background exchanges on this. And amidali helped with the translations. This isn't a Juju Mod-But from at least my own travels on the INTERNETS this is the ONLY Royal Italian Army Icon/map symbols/tactical signs I have seen anywhere in any paper board game or computer game. I could be wrong-but I didn't see any. And believe me-I LOOKED! Nearly Everyone either fudges it with NATO/Wehrmacht or small pictures. Not CMFDR/Tempestzzzz. So this is a first. The real deal-Royal Italian Army Tactical Map Symbols! And we're pretty proud of that. It may be a little jarring for the eye when you see it first on your screen because all of us have been raised on NATO and Wehrmacht Tactical Signs. You may go back to that-but at least your horizons were broadened. Right? I should add we have quite a few historical resources to draw on-but every icon used won't be present since there are some units Not in the Italian Army depicted in FI/Gustav Line (i.e. SNIPERS and ANTITANK infantry units (like Bazooka and Panzershreck). Certainly no Heavy or Medium Tanks. Bit of a sample for Tankettes for Red Forces. Yeah Blue Forces and Fog of War will have their own icons. You'll just have to wait and see.. One request I have for Battlefront.Com and I hope it's passed on by the Moderator to the Battlefront Powers that Be - Can we have French Military Icons slots said aside for Free French Units depicted in any future Combat Mission modules??? CMFDR and myself well on are way researching that area now and would like to do a mod for that-if French slots are available. We have -uniforms, vehicles, firearms and color schemes depicted for specific countries- Could we please add more foreign country slots to? Please. The US, Germans, British and Russians have their own period WWII slots. Okay 'nuff said there. Yeah CMFDR did a lot of investigating here -but sadly- one EXAMPLE OF ONE MILITARY ICON THAT WILL NOT APPEAR in CM FI/GL Italian Army Mules Google translation - The in-line with mules . My interpretation 'Mules in Formation'.
