  2. Few things I have been working on for your gaming pleasure! Still have work to do for the full RT mod but this was a nice change of pace and theater. It's the early stages but I have been itching to get moving on all the other titles. Mord.

  4. @Battlefront.com Why do you do this to us? We just want to love you, hug you, and give you all of our money. Crazy thing is, you won't even just take the money. This is a very complicated relationship. I think we need counseling.

  5. Nice poem 😂 I've got nothing better to do so here's another one 😂 : There is a game by Battlefront, that rules the gaming league Combat Mission owns this title, and none other can compete. But sadly the game never released, and stayed in development mode, And even after thirty years, people still wait for it to go.

  6. I will throw in my simple request that has bothered me since their very first cm game. Add a blasted wind directional arrow to the directional compass or something along that lines. drives me crazy that the only way to tell which way the wind is blowing and how strong is to pull up the text in the briefing. Wnen I am looking at a enemy position from a friendly location, I should have a arrow indicating that. instant knowledge as to what likely to expect of smoke and such.

  8. The received wisdom in CM circles seems to be that 251s are battle taxis which unload hundreds of meters from the foe, but I would note that we also had plans to fight from our ARMORED INFANTRY halftracks, including firing bazookas. Here is how German war artist Hans Liska depicted the 251 in battle am Ost. This is very much like the "Welcome to Africa!" given by the DAK veterans to a newly arrived TORCH unit. The welcome consisted of an attack out of the setting sun, lots of shooting and grenade throwing, an about turn and disappearance into the darkness. That story is in the anthology of bat

  9. Light infantry in open air positions without top cover of any kind. Soft targets in minor entrenchments, small structures, and heavy weapons. HE rounds stand a good chance to wreck crewed weapons. Most targets lighter than a tank. Very profitable caliber when used against weapon crews and makes short work of most structures. Anything. A really ubiquitous caliber for the most part that makes sense against all targets. Good for use in suppression or destructive fires. Airbursting rounds will cause casualties over a wide area. Destructive. Even heavy armor shou

  10. Here is my poem. It is titled 'Annus horriblis'. There is a company by the name of Battlefront, Purveyors of fine wargames of which I always take a punt, Who's 20th anniversary, this year we celebrate, Though their missed release dates we all love to hate, So three cheers for the one and only Battlefront, And I hope the year 2019 won't be such a c.....!

    Improvement suggestions

    No, no its all good. The clock is drawn on by the application over top of the grey oval. The mod cannot draw the clock only provide a place for the time text to be painted over.

  13. Yeah, CM: Fulda Gap is great! Visible helicopters, all T-72 variants for the entire Warsaw Pact, all M113 variants for the entire NATO forces, dynamic campaign, improved graphics... I got it bundled with KoTOR 3, Half Life 3, VSB 3 and Starcraft Ghost (3)! I'd post videos, but the CIA is in the process of ransacking my apartment.

    Tips for spotting AT guns

    All well said about the 1000km front, etc. I would add that at some places there were lots of PAKs, tanks, etc. Those are the places we play in the game. The parts of the front that were poorly defended were of course more numerous, but aren't much fun to play, and were generally not the important places, usually due to being poor areas for transportation/movement. AT guns would be concentrated at strategic/tactically important areas, just as would be more troops, tanks, etc. There were certainly very wide stretches of terrain w no AT guns at all, probably just covered by patrols if at al

    To my mind, the only thing important about someone is the date they joined the forums. That's all that really matters, were you here long enough to know what the heck you're talking about...

    I remember. I was one of the people that had one guy go outta his way to downvote every and every post i made, opinion, game mechanics, real life, even just anyone want a pbem? Crazy. Whatever yeah i agree it should have stayed dead. For example one of the most intelligent posters Ive ever encountered on the boards JasonC, I havent seen post in years so Im assuming he.d have 0 points which would be incredibly deceptive to his vast knowledge. It also favors heavy posters and - I admit people like me -who sometimes post stuff thats really nothing - like thanking someone, making a dumb asse

  37. Yes, hobbyist history nerds trying to get accurate facts out of actual veterans is often as frustrating as Star Wars nerds trying to get in-depth Star Wars details out of the actors.

  38. 4. What about peeking (or even shooting - with one man) around a corner in urban settings? I assume it would be incredibly hard to get that into the engine and might be consiedered a bit too "micro" for the engine's scope. But I think it would be nice if a unit positioned at a corner would get some LOS around the corner - it could very well be low quality LOS, only giving you suspected contacts, not confirmed ones. The current method - moving the whole unit "around" the corner blindly and potentially exposing them to devastating fire - has little appeal. 5. I applaud CM to the relative s
