If you try in the new editor you are (apparently based on experiments so far) stuck with the US Supply Platoon HQ in Vehicle 1, he can't be dismounted with the editor toggle and thus cannot be separately set to a non-appearing reinforcement slot  

Seems like you have found a work around by using the old editor.  Hmm, I wonder what else we can do with two different editors for the same game? :ph34r:

It was originally begun as a visual aid in reading The Long Road Home.  The TV show images weren't jiving with how the book described things, then I happened to catch an actual pic from the fighting and realized the TV show had taken even more liberties than I'd thought.  I think I have identified the location Red 1 went to ground and marked it on the map.  1824 x 2544.

Ye gods that's enormous!  :o

Which reminded me to transfer this to CM:SF2:

That's Bishr, looking south-west, it's over 3.5km to the other map edge:

It loads faster in the new game than the old and while we'll need to fix the sea ourselves, it's a goer!  B)

PS - Anyone know who created this map in the first place, I'd like to give credit?

GREAT MFin' FIND! If it works, it works! Better than where we were a month ago. I was gonna leave SF1 on my comp anyway just for research and comparison purposes, now I have a third validation.

I opened a thread for this conversation to carry on without derailing the screenshots. Maybe Steve can migrate the posts over there so we can have it all in one spot.

On a brighter note, here's ISIS, in Humvees, in CM:SF2 (they were put there in CM:SF1):

The file's here if you want to look at it:  https://www.dropbox.com/s/jdaj5m6qclvicud/ISIS Patrol Test.btt?dl=0

It's exactly the same one I created before, imported and apparently functional in CM:SF2.....But you can only create it in the OLD editor.  :wacko: 

If you try in the new editor you are (apparently based on experiments so far) stuck with the US Supply Platoon HQ in Vehicle 1, he can't be dismounted with the editor toggle and thus cannot be separately set to a non-appearing reinforcement slot, as seen above (Unused US Unit is the Supply Platoon HQ).  :unsure:

Like I said elsewhere, it's all a bit odd, but odd's good!   :D

I was able to create this all in the new editor:

Using the supply platoon removing everyone but the HQ (and I made him part of a Reinforcement group that will never arrive) and adding unconventional specialist teams as needed.

When deploying in the editor:

When playing the scenario - no HQ unit:

How did you dismount the supply platoon HQ, that option is greyed out to me when I look at the tab?

EDIT - D'oh!....You dismounted him manually in preview didn't you?  I didn't actually try that!   :wacko:

PS - Yup, that worked!  :D

PPS - I just discovered that 'Humvee Wars' are an absolute hoot.....Fill 'em up with infantry and duke it out!  So many fun things to mess around with in this game!  B)

PPPS - I'd give you a like for your valuable research, but todays excitement has done my whole supply!  ;)

Yep - same here. I keep running out. I asked Steve for more (for everyone) but he has a bunch of more important stuff to do. Either that or he is ignoring me :D

Just checked to see if we can go further, bud sadly it still isn't possible to put ISIS into an Abrams!  :P

Thank goodness for that. Oh wait you meant in the game :)

They captured several fully intact in Iraq, but apparently their usage of them was brief & unspectacular (I suspect many ended their days under a JDAM).  ;)

Sadly in the process of discovering the above, I discovered that my AV hates CM:SF2, just like it hates every other BfC product and patch!  It's been told it can't do anything about them, so it can't delete any files, instead it throws a tantrum and locks my PC up until I hit (and hold) the power!  :(

Here's what I do, I install all of my BF games into a common directory (D:\BattlefrontGames), then tell my antivirus to ignore that folder.

Works like a charm.
