    Next Korean war is coming close...

    What is this strange fixation with Korea, are we lobbying for a Combat Mission release 😎
  2. Along with Combat Mission it appears from my last post I also need to upgrade my auto-carrot
  3. My therapist explain this problem for me at my last session after having experienced this pixeltruppen behavior while playing a Battle for Normandy scenario in Combat Mission v 4.0. The fight-or-flight response (also called hyperarousal, or the acute stress response) is a physiological reaction that occurs in response to a perceived harmful event, attach, or threat to survival. This response is recognized as the first stage of the "general adaptation syndrome" that regulates stress responses among pixeltruppen. From that session I derived that a fix may or may not be to my liking. Ahhh Combat Mission is a lot like go to therapy, there probably will never be a real fix and I will just keep coming back for more. Be happy that this game even exist and just play on. Life is too short and this is not a dress rehearsal.
  4. Ooooh real life, can we also model the effect of amphedamines, cafffine, and perhaps some hooch. Shouldn't be too hard to code or is it already coded in V4 as the erractic behavior of some pixeltruppen.

    The patch?

    What's the big deal. Old guard, new guard, your opinion, my opinion. V 4 is better than V 3, V 6 will be better than V 5 and so on. Fun's a poppin', just play the bloody game, life is to short as it is.
  6. Spoofed me on this one. From the title thought I would find some good Combat Mission game info/technique on examples/methods that I could use on those rascally pixeltruppen. Michael
  7. When it does happen to me IIRC it seems to be when different groups move through the same action spot at the same time, sort of like a traffic jam. When it finally gets sorted out some guys are missing from their unit. But as Freyberg mentions it sort of adds to the game. I like to just go with to see what happens.
  8. Howdy John K. I would consider myself to be a newbie and I do not understand this - / + post voting rating system. Is there any place on the forum that explains it"s intent or purpose. I have posted a few times but do not consider what others may think of my views or opinions when I create a post. I do try to not offend but the world is a varied place with many views. I can not remember if I have ever voted, up or down. It seems if someone is too off track they are vanquished anyway (which is probably a good thing). Just keep putting it out there and have a good time. Life is short enough as it is, as a famous man once said “don't sweat the thunder showers”

    A Video Worth Watching

    A little new at this posting thing. Forgot to mention name of the game although might be shelf evident from the link, "Stavelot", at the time of this posting I believe they are around 20th turn.
  10. Howdy, Just wanted to post a heads up on a great AAR going on over at Usually Hapless YouTube channel. He is playing against General Sir Anthony, two very accomplished players in a PBEM turn by turn video. If you have not had the chance to watch this (thumbs up) I would highly recommend it. For a novice like myself this is like a classroom exercise on how to play this game, for more experienced player it has much to offer in suspense and just plan old entertainment. Being a minute by minute posting there is a lot of technique and strategy that is explained in each video. A great credit to both the players and the game. When finished this should become a required viewing for anyone interested in learning how this game works with all of its rich and varied game play features. I will stop now as this is beginning to sound like a fanboy ranting. Go see for yourself. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MRPeh86LD2s

    Tactics of the WWII U.S.

    Thanks Furinkazan for posting this link. Most excellent stuff, especially for newbie like me. I would recommend this site to everyone.

    Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures

    I really enjoy browsing this forum, it's like two treat's in one. Both informative and amusing.
  13. Hi folks, this is my first post on the forum, not a veteran by any stretch of the imagination but I do truly enjoy the Combat Mission family of strategy games. Hammer's Flank was fun to play, The first scenario seemed to be fairly straight forward, maneuver against dug in defenses by penning and out flanking. Do not understand this Jason persons ranting (which is probably a good thing) and thanks to the Sgt. for creating this nice exercise. I realize this is an old post but just now reading it. Please keep up the hard work of making scenarios and campaigns for me to play. Again Thanks Sgt.
