With the new site finally up we must take a minute to remember our old friend, the Repository, now relegated to the cold dark vacuum of cyberspace. Maybe not the prettiest of spots on the internet, that old ugly wench did her job in earnest, hosting some of the first and oldest of the new engine mods, maps and scenarios. She was the home to my first real endeavors into the modding arena (as ugly as some of them were) and she was the go-to spot before there was a go-to spot. Even though she was cast aside many a year ago for a prettier, younger Mistress, it was nice knowing she was still around if we needed her. And even though she was old, haggard, and hard to handle, she was there with her many forgotten (un-ported) treasures buried in a confusion of broken links and cyber-subterfuge waiting for a visit and a chat. Alas, she has finally and truly given up her ghost, along with many a mod (and perhaps) scenario that never made it to a shinier shore. So, as a new door opens, an old one closes and I say, fare thee well, sweet, ugly, PIA-to-navigate Repository, I salute thee for a job well done! You are gone but not forgotten...well, maybe a little.

And now a blatant and exploitative manipulation of your emotions...bow your heads and shut your mouths (especially you, Emrys, your Flea Deity commands it!)

Way to nice, considering I usually compared the Repository to a suppository. No nostalgic feelings here. :)

Is it gone for good? I believe there were files that were not uploaded to the new mod/scenario depot. I cant find the excellent "A bloody ride" campaign anywhere for instance. Would be a bloody shame if such great content were lost for ever

I had just about all the campaigns and scenarios ever made for all titles and transmitted em all for a new resource so they are all available.  Am sure someone will provide you with the link.

I was gonna suggest he talk to you. Your pack rat tendencies have elevated you to "Keeper of the Sacred Knowledge" status.

Holly crap you're right: http://www.combatmission.lesliesoftware.com/BattleForNormandy/Campaigns/index.html

@Bootie I have a copy on my HD if you need to discuss retrieving it.

I'm assuming for now the Repository will return as I would think BF would want things that attract folks to the website.

The updated KG Engel (CMBN) and Troina (CMFI) official campaigns are also not uploaded to the scenario depot, or were these integrated with a patch at some point?

Hopefully, the new Repository will have some sense of organization.  I never could figure out why the old site was so awful in that way...

There's not going to be a new repository., I think what Steve meant (in the other thread) was that the old mods aren't deleted so they can eventually be ported over to CMMODS.

Mord's right CMMODS IS the new Repository. That's not official I have no standing. But I'm pretty sure that's the case.
