Back on Tracks Campaign is now available!

Great to have the dutch back !

Im just having one issue with the CV90s. They are using their airburst rounds all the time instead of just targets in the open or in trenches, which means they waste their rounds targeting buildings etc. Here is a photo. All this makes their HE rounds useless when supporting.

Hi guys!

Long time no see. :)

I just bought CMSF 2 upgrade, on 17.12.2019. My question is: are all remade campaigns included already, or do I need to download this one (and maybe others)?

By the way, to have CMSF 2 now is adream come true. 🥰

 

Cheers

Olf

Another thing has come up. Whats up with the GIL ATGM? almost 20 launches against static targets and just 3 hits, all of the mises falling just behind the target. AI know the GIL i just another name for the Spike ATGM, which ive worked with. I accept they can be some misses sometimes but this many?

Only the British Campaign remains to be completed.

Unsure if the revamped campaigns that came out after release have been included in the master installer as of yet. Play it safe, download the files from BFCElvis' opening post and replace the content in the campaign folder before starting a campaign.

One can discern the new and old .cam files by their file date. Dated 2009 is unmodified since SF1, The updated campaign files are dated 2018/2019.

Thanks, Ithikial!

You saved me from getting mental at some point in the near future - I had just started "The Khabour Trail" in its old version. Would have been a bad suprise...

Good idea, will check!

Update: The NATO module campaigns are NOT in the master installer as of yet.

Furthermore they airburst their HE rounds in front of soft vehicles leaving them unharmed.

Thanks all for the effort of updating this campaign! :)

One thing I noticed in the first mission is that the dutch infantry platoons (still) don't seem to have radio's on them and thus are out of c2 when outside of their vehicles. Both the recce HQ and the inf platoon hq's (at least the one in the YPR's, didn't check the CV-90 borne yet) seem to not have any radio carried on them.

As we all know, maintaining c2 is an important aspect of the game so this does have some impact.
Or am I missing something? Afaik there was an issue with this in CMSF2 which was supposed to be fixed a while back.

Seems there is an issue in CMBS with airburst rounds.  'Usually Hapless' H2H game had two incidents where airburst round exploded harmlessly above targeted Humvees.

Nobody else have the c2 / radio problem with the dutch forces? 

Yes, I'm having that as well.

I think C2 across all titles could use some revisions. Modern radios, ones that are rated for distances much, much larger than CM maps are failing even with point-to-point LOS (which you don't need for many modern military radios anyways)

This is related to troops missing radios, but check the ECM environment.  That will reduce comms effectiveness, IIRC.  Haven't played CM in a bit, but remember playing around with it.
