CMBO, CMBB, and CMAK Unit Database Charts

Recommended Posts

The first installment of the CMAK unit database has now been uploaded. It's still a work in progress and only contains the tanks chart thus far. I tried to make it as accurate as possible, but if you see any errors, please let me know. Thanks.

Chris' CM Database

The CMBO and CMBB databases can also be found on the above site.

[Edit] Changed title to something more useful. [/Edit]

Has anyone ever taken the time to build a proper, searchable database for all of this information? If there is a need, I wouldn't mind taking a stab at it, and then putting an HTML front-end on it so that its easy to query for information...

Thanks! Glad you like it. I haven't bothered with an HTML version as I don't want to keep up with it, no matter how automated it might be. If someone wants to do so, feel free. But be aware that the only conversion that I know of is someone who translated the CMBB stuff into French. It's an awful lot of work, which is why most don't bother. I also update whenever I find mistakes, which adds to the annoyance factor. smile.gif

Select All and choose a font or a font color. Things should show up then.

Thanks for the note. I'll see if I can clarify things.

I wrote an app for CMBB that parsed Chris' excel files and presented all the data in a sortable listview. Kinda useful when making force selections.

Would work for CMAK assuming the format of the excel spreadsheets hasn't changed radically.

Probably should have developed it a little further (it was pretty basic), though being on holiday at the moment I guess I could find the time...

The gun penetrations table has now been added. Yay! smile.gif

And a few corrections were made to the tanks chart:

* Added Tungsten ammo to German Panzer IIC, Panzer IIF, 222 AC and 222 AC late, 231 AC, and 232 AC.

* Changed caliber-length on US M3 Medium late. The new L/40 designation may or may not be more correct, but it helps distinguish it from the L/38 of the Sherman gun.

* Corrected availability date of Australian forces.

* Corrected caliber-length on Cruiser Mk IV CS.

The only significant change is for the multi-gun AFVs; I used two rows to list the info, which might be problematic.

I ordered CMAK 4 days ago after the demo kept me sleepless wanting it. I have active games in CMBO, but can't wait for the new one.

Anyway, I have used your Excel charts Chris and really appreciate them. I already have the CMAK version (and the game patch) if the postman would just deliver my freaking CD...The charts help a lot, especially in the beginning when you can't figure out why your Sherman's shells seem like they say in Morse Code to a Panther "OVER HERE...YEA YOU...KILL ME OR I'LL CHIP OFF SOME MORE PAINT" .

Is it even out yet? If any changes are made that affect the charts, I do plan on updating them. And I'll edit the thread title to reflect what version of CMAK they cover.

Thanks for your work and refinements.
You're certainly welcome. smile.gif
