  1. Aragorn2002, I need to apologize. Reacted before I saw who wrote the comment (your comment) about Goumier and rape. Thought it was an ignorant rightwing "the Germans in ww2 hardly did anthing wrong, look how bad the Allies were" view. I should have looked before I reacted, because I know that you are a well informed and decent chap.
  2. Well, I could mail you all my holidaysnaps.. Bet you haven't seen them before.. 🤣
  3. Yeah, thank God the German Wehrmacht and SS soldiers never did anything wrong in WW2, because the " politically correct" wouldn't be able to play Combat Mission at all.
  4. Hey there John, Very interesting info ( as always ). Thank you. Watching ww2 war movies getting even more difficult now, because from now on I unvoluntarily will be looking for mistakes in how infantry carries their weapons! ( Next to my, already annoying, critical look at the correct use of vehicles, uniforms, weapons, armor, equipment etc.) Thanks for spoiling the fun!!😉 Btw, do you have info on friendly fire killpercentages during ww2? I once read that it was about 16%(!) in general. That's bloody unbelievable..
  5. Still no schwimmwagen. (That I never wanted or needed to be amphibious in the game. Just easy to make, converse the textures on a Kubel, eyecandy.) Looks like Battlefront really hates the schwimmwagen. Pity..
  6. Rarity, perhaps? Less available assets are more expensive, I think.
  7. With years of - waiting in vain- experience I used to believe that Battlefront would eventually give us the new CMFI bones "when hell freezes over", but with that climate warming- thingy even that won't do no more.. I'm 56, and still hope the new module will arrive before I'm a pensioner. Just another 12 years...
  8. He probably meant: CLOSE THIS THREAD, DAM# IT! I JUST WON'T PROVIDE SCREENIES FOR ANOTHER SIX MONTHS.
  9. Boy oh boy oh boy, does this picture bring back memories.. CM1 must have been one of the nicest games I ever played. (The "Vietcong" games and "Spearhead" are also in my top three.) And to be honest? It most probably has given me way more fun and excitement than CMBN/CW/MG/BS together. Not because those games don't satisfy me, no. But because way back then CM1 was a mind blowing experience. Unique. Amazing. Nothing like I'd ever seen. I'm desperately waiting for Victory to Rome, which I suspect is very near the release date, and I really hope the campaigns are as playable as the scenarios in Cm1. With or without fire..
  10. Never any trouble with download deliveries and never any trouble with Paypal on Combat Mission payments. I live in The Netherlands.
  11. There's a very stubborn part in me that keeps on thinking that it should be possible to get a win without too many casualties. And I keep on getting frustrated when I lose men or machines. Which unavoidable results in anger and very bad tactical choises with more casualties. It is imperative that you realize that the outcome of war/combat is usually more of a numbers game than anything else. You can be a Combat Mission Manstein, but still have to accept that there will be slaughterhouse massacers. The gruesome reality dictates that " the last man standing" is the victor. In order to achieve local numerical superiority in " Breaking the bank" I transferred all the troops from the right side of the map to the left. That made the difference between being butchered, and being butchered but still having men enough to conquer the left side of the map. Maybe this will work for you. Recently a collegue that I hadn't met for sometime asked me where my hair had gone. Well, I've been playing Combat Mission since the first release and I cannot count the times I pulled my own hair out from the unbearable frustrations that playing Combat Mission ( try the Market Garden module to really get my point) gave to me. But.. if you get an unexpected hard fought win, or you plan a brilliant move that turns out as you planned, if you succeed in killing a lot of enemies through good tactics, then Combat Mission is the best game you'll ever play.
