    Looking for Opponent

    For some reason, the URL to download and install of CMHelper from http://gregories.net/CMHelper/User Manual/CMHelper.html?GettingStarted.html. appears defunct. However there is a dropbox download link at https://www.dropbox.com/sh/jvh9sx. I think the cm-helper-1.7.5 version is the most stable to use for your machine, PC or Mac.
  4. Me too. I had high hopes for Armored Brigade in development but just can't embrace the final release. Maybe five years from now I'll find something playable when its user community builds the exciting scenario's which the designer failed to accomplish.
  5. I approached "translating" boardgame scenario's to Combat Mission as follows: Look for company/platoon level scenario's. These are the ones which scale best to Combat Mission Look for scenario's with clear or easy to identify locations. These will help me find a google or WWII era 2km x 2km terrain map from which I can make something matching the tactical lay of the land Look for scenario's with clear Orders of Battle whose units are available in Combat Mission. These will help me build a balanced force mix. Look for scenario's with clearly defined mission objectives that can be achieved in 45-120 minutes of game time. These will help me build good briefings and establish clear victory locations for game play. I think Squad Leader / Advanced Squad Leader provides the most fertile ground for this. The challenge is determining which scenario's translate best to exciting CM designs. I want to investigate Command Ops 2 as another possible source of inspiration as well after they release the pending "Patton's Charge/Bradley at Bay" module.
  6. Above and below for existing families. For something new, I favor CMx3 start with North Africa and proceed from there.

    Daily Challenge

    Still channeling mustachioed Canadians looking askance at their daughter's suitors . . . But to go back on track, I think this is a great idea. For another place to solicit scenario feedback, you might try The Proving Grounds although it has grown pretty quiet there lately - FGM - The Proving Grounds II

    Mission description pic bug?

    Yep, briefing images need to be 24 bit. This map overlay thread mentions such.

    Update on Engine 4 patches

    Yes, but the CO2 long awaited Volume 8 "Patton's Charge/Bradley at Bay" is 18 months past its published release date. The devs seem to encounter endless problems with the upgrade and no new release date is in sight. It seems they need a great deal of time to insure release a quality product as well.
