  1. That should have been CMFI. Sorry about that. I also omitted the Arab/Israeli Conflicts.
  2. First, let me say that the work that Battlefront has put into the CM series over the past 20 years or so, is absolutely fantastic. I want to thank all of the members of the development team and the beta-test team. If it had not been for you, the rest of us would not be able to enjoy these games for all of these years. Secondly, I am sure to get rebuffed by several members of the development team and/or by members of these forums by what I feel should be given some consideration for future titles in the series. Future Combat Mission games/modules: 1) It goes without saying that a North African game/CMIF module is one that many would want to see in the future. 2) Early War Russian Front game/CMRT module. 3) World War II PTO from 1942 till the end of the war. I have been told that it would be difficult to develop the terrain found in that theater of the conflict, but I have to disagree. Also, I was told that it is not a particularly popular wargame subject in the gaming world. I beg to differ. Some of the most intense combat (post-invasion) took place on those God forsaken islands. Yes, Japanese armor left a lot to be desired but the Japanese Army and Marines were some of the most tenacious adversaries that the Untied States Army and Marines fought against during the war. 4) Cold War circa mid-1970s to late 1980s. Probably best to have a base game and modules that would add additional units/years/nations. 5) Modern or near future. These has already been much discussion about what countries should be included in any future CMBS expansion modules, so I won't rehash them in this post. 6) WW 1 or Korea or Vietnam. Questionable. Not my favorite periods of warfare history but there are those gamers that might like to see them eventually included in the series. In closing let me say this. As I have been on a development and beta-testing team for another gaming company, I do understand that only so much can be done with a certain game system when it is a small gaming company such as Battlefront. However, I do see a bright future for everyone that works so hard on this game series and I wish to thank you once again.

    A-10?????

    I just placed an order for CMBS and noticed in the game TO&E list that a very important air asset for the United States is missing. The A-10 Warthog. I am sure that this has been covered in past posts, but I do hope that any future add-ons for CMBS has the A-10 included. JMTCW.
  4. I was wondering if the Jonesoft Generic Mod Enabler (JSGME) would work with the Combat Mission series? I am sure that I could answer this question on my own once I have CMBN and CMSF installed on the new computer, but I am was just wondering if it would be worth the effort before I try.

    NATO Units????

    This may be a real bad case of wishful thinking, but what about the Hellenic and Italian armies since we are discussing NATO units? Greece uses many of the variants of the M-113. Again, probably a bad case of wishful thinking or gas or both.

    NATO Units????

    Agreed. I got carried away.🙄

    NATO Units????

    If you would like to make a similar post to the Shock Force forums, I would appreciate that (still learning some of the ins and outs with the forums). The French???? Hmm, I'd have to give that one some thought but the LeClerc MBT would be interesting to see.
  8. Yesterday I purchased the CMBN Big Bundle package and wanted to move it to a 32 Gb pin-drive to save it. When I tried, I got the message that the file was too large for the drive but there is nothing on that pin-drive at all and the zipped file for the CMBN Big Bundle is only 4 Gb. Any clue why I can't cut/copy and paste the file to the pin drive?

    NATO Units????

    This is sort of on topic, but it relates to Shock Force. What about the addition of the Israelis? That would make for some interesting scenarios and might be a way to include the M-113s and it's variants.

    Assault Boats?

    Definitely. Always loved building things for my miniature collection I had eons ago. True. Gamers that have never had to set-up a board game with hundreds, or even thousands, of counters and leave it on a kitchen table, only to find out that your cat decided it was a good place to take a nap does not know the meaning of "KILL THE CAT!!!". LOL. No, I did not kill the cat.
  11. Tomorrow is the day I will finally be ordering my new computer and placing the first of several Battlefront orders I will be making over the next year. I will be starting my new Combat Mission library with the Battle for Normandy Big Bundle and the British module for CMSF-2. That should keep me busy as I will also be downloading any mods and scenarios that are available for CMBN-4 and CMSF-2 from here and the Scenario Depot. Question. Will the JSGME mod installer work with the Combat Mission games? I hope so, because it sure makes adding and removing mods very easy.

    Assault Boats?

    I completely agree with you. If it ever was done, say in Upgrade 5 or whatever, it would indeed be a huge undertaking. Of course, they could probably use the coding from Black Sea as a baseline for a future Upgrade to add amphibious vehicles or even assault boats. If they were to do it for only a new title though, I can just hear the gamers moan and groan "Why can't they be included in the other games too?" I know this from being a beta-tester for another company. There is just so much a programmer can code into an existing game if he, or she, is limited by the constraints of that gaming engine. They can't fulfill everyone's wish list.

    Assault Boats?

    You must be as old as me. "bottle cork was a tank, book was a hill". I remember drawing all the tanks and infantry on heavy card-stock and then gluing them standing up on a base to represent the miniatures I needed. Hey, it worked and it is still used even today.
  14. Sounds doable and very interesting but I can see how slow a game might go and also what would happen if a team member were to drop out. As soon as I get back up to speed with the games I plan to purchase (toss up between Red Thunder and Last Blitzkrieg) I might be interested in giving a TvT a go. Of course, I have to get the new computer rig which I will be ordering this Friday. Finally a rig that can handle the CB games. Been a very long time. Oh, and I am upgrading my CMSF to 4 as well.
