    New to Combat Mission

    This makes me think of something. Will the 35$ upgrade allow you to purchase DVD and the paper manual ?

    The CM2 FAQ Thread

    I am not the author of this video. However, may I suggest to add it to the FAQ? I find it useful for a newbie.

    Am I the only one ?

    Not at all, I am playing CMSF1 scenario meanwhile. One of my US squads discovers Uncons hidden in a trench. Firefight of course. Then, I saw one of the Uncons doing the move to throw a grenade. I said internally 'oh my ...' But, at this exact moment, the Uncon guy was touched by a bullet and the grenade went onto the ground. Explosion, two more bad guys out... Boring? no. Entertaining? completely. 😃 End of september is not yet there. They have still time to polish the beast... 🎅
  5. Thank you so much @Combatintman

    CMSF 2 question

    Great !!!
  7. My goal is to design several scenario for CMSF2 taking the historical background of this civil war. Too early for a campaign I am afraid. I prefer to start with something little. I am reading plenty of stuff right now to give me some ideas of interesting things to translate into scenario. I think I have all the necessary equipments (RED tanks / technicals) to do something not too far away from history. Perhaps will miss some NATO air assets like Tiger helicopters but an Apache is not too bad after all. Of course, this will be RED vs RED

    Un-Acquire ?

    Well, I have done few tests. Take a squad on the ground (not inside a vehicle). Split it and leave the two teams untouched. It will take approximately 15 seconds to recombine the squad automatically. Now, take two teams of the same squad in separate ground areas. Ask one of the team to go on the same square than the other one. It will take approximately 3 seconds to recombine the squad automatically. In terms of UI, the split buttons are there, they are just greyed out when the squad is inside the vehicle. Why not do exactly the same than when the squad is outside the vehicle? Splitting a squad inside a vehicle, you have 15 seconds to do something with the team of your choice before an automated merge. And, when the team is back in the vehicle, 3 seconds later it is merged in its squad if everybody there. I do not know what it does represent in terms of code. But, all the LEGO pieces are there.

    Un-Acquire ?

    Thank you - something to add to my wish list then. But, less important than the ability to split squad inside vehicles. I would like to dismount a scout team not an entire squad if needed to limit exposure. I know there is a workaround for this but really implementing split squad inside vehicles will allow flexibility since there are four possible squad split options.
  10. A squad in a vehicule is able to "ACQUIRE" some stuff, here Javelin launcher. But, is it possible for this squad to "UN-ACQUIRE" stuff? For example, I would like the squad to drop its Javelin launcher plus missiles since all the AFVs in the area are now destroyed. Is it possible? Thanks

    Yeah, you are a rocketman after all 😃
  12. Agree this one is a masterpiece. Hopefully, we will have it back with a real bridge in SF2. Looking forward for the end of this great AAR
  13. To check every day if SF2 is out. Looks like my Christmas gift is in advance this year. At my age, it should not happen. I am like a kid waiting 🎅😃
