  1. LOL I remember a few missions in the first title Barbarossa to Berlin. German infantry a couple 37mm ATG and maybe some tanks. KV1 tanks appeared and, well you sort of just want the infantry to take off as they have nothing. ATG... not a chance in hell. LOL only a lucky flank shot.
  2. It is strange that they would not have been in at least the vehicle pack. Sturmpanzer-Abteilung 217 was present and around the Caen area, 7 August. They escaped the Falaise pocket and the remaining vehicles from the 217 were used in Wacht am Rhein. (Battle of the Bulge) near St, Vith and then later in the Ruhr area.
  3. Just got my book. Will now read and look over a lot of materials. I will at the end of my read put together a Scenario. Never done any Campaigns so I will leave that to the experts. Will post when I have completed the read and submit where about the Scenario will be related and with what units. James.
  4. True. I would like to think the majority of players here want more of a challenge. That is not saying the mission and Campaigns now are not, anything but. But the early years do offer even more of that challenge a lot of us look for, always looking for more challenge. I hope the Battlefront team takes a look at that, which I am sure they have.
  5. I strongly think that they should consider North Africa and the beginnings of Barbarossa at the very least. Instead of doing a full out module for Normandy across the Rhine, I think the time would be better spent doing NA, or Barbarossa. I just think there is just more Campaign and Scenario possibilities and brings us full circle of sorts. But fighting French and British Armor early in France would be fun as well. It is a lot of work, but the new game engine, Scenario-Campaign Designers and modders would have a field day. The early years I think creates a more difficult game in some ways.
  6. Interesting.. I just ordered this book. Will read it and whip out a Scenario after I finish reading the book. Never done any Campaigns but I can at least do a really good scenario. Want to get all the accurate details and such. Will post again when finished. LOL probably in a month or two.
  7. Will be pre-ordering this week. So glad this Chapter is complete. Unless later the Heavens open and we get 41-42. LOL Thank you Battlefront and all those who make this possible. More Hours upon Hours of enjoyment.
  8. Dear GOD.... I hope so... Operation Compass, BattleAxe, Crusader, Gazala Battles... hell could you win a campaign as the Italians vs the UK? So many great battles. Sidi Barrani, Bardia, Tobruk, Bedda Fomm. 1st and Second German campaigns. You could do some UK LRRP scenarios. Naval support, Air Support... To me it was a damn good Combat Series.
  9. Would love to see Barbarossa.... For the life of me I miss the duel's between Pz II, Pz II vs BT and early T-34. I miss the KV-1 and KV-2.... truly a freaking TERROR and NIGHTMARE when you see them rolling towards you, and you know your only hope is a lucky flank shot. I also miss CMAK... I loved the African Campaigns, and with their new engine I believe it would be just wonderful not only to the players but to the scenario, and Campaign Designers. The duels between the Cruiser tanks and that of the Axis forces were wonderful. The Italian tanks could inflict damage if used correctly and offers a good challenge to even veteran players. I would definitely buy both.... yes, yes I think it would be a splendid plan that after the last Italian, and RT game that we should at least go to early 1941 the end of 1943. Thank you Battlefront and everyone who assists........ damn, need bribery money... LOL James.
  10. Well winter 2019 will definitely be a blast... LOL Thanks to the Battlefront team for all your hard work. Cheers, James.
  11. Awesome thanks Bootie for the assist and all your hard work. Greatly appreciated.
  12. Ok, thanks Bootie, I think I had way too much coffee while trying figure this out. Will send you the BTT file.
  13. Probably my last post for awhile. I spent over 4 hours with word press. The file finally loaded, restarted computer. However in when I went to review it for the 20th time or more... NO btt. file is to be seen in the preview. Even after it successfully loaded. Did exactly what you said, I must still be missing a step., I hate WordPress and its functionality, it is slow and cumbersome, but that is all they have.
  14. Edge. However I uploaded the zipped btt file and it uploaded 100%. However I published the Scenario thinking the file was there, because honestly I have no Fng clue why it would not. So now there is a published Scenario with no btt file. Uploaded the freaking thing again, edited it again, file loads successful, I review it for the 20th time. Don't see any file from where you download it to media.. and go from there as instructions given to me on another thread.
  15. Been working on it with the help of some good people. However I keep getting a HTTP error 503. I looked it up, sounds like its the actual site which is strange because other people have posted today. So not sure what frack is going on but it is frustrating as hell.. seems so simple but fubared.
  16. Thank you MOS:96B2P for your assistance. I did everything verbatim. However whenever I try and drop anything... an image, the btt. file or the btt file zipped I get this. " Http error 503 is a server side error, which means that the problem is not with your computer or internet connection, but with the website's server. You may however follow the steps given below to try and resolve the issue. The 503 error may occur if the website is facing temporary issues."
  17. Ok so I tried Zipping it 3 different times and dropping it in there. I use WinZip. It has never failed me before so I am basically SOL when it comes to loading new files. No idea what the issue is so the only way to load files is old school on the bloody forum. Not ideal as it will never most likely get a lot of views or downloads. I mean its why the Freaking Scenario Depot was created but for whatever reason its not happening. So that's that.
  18. So I figured out how to pretty much create a Scenario and put it on the Proving Grounds II. One big problem is that when I upload or drag or drop the .btt file it gives me this.... Sorry, this file type is not permitted for security reasons. So not sure what to do, as you need the .btt file which is the entire Scenario created. Any help would be greatly appreciated. James.
  19. Yes I tried that, but whenever I try to upload or drag and drop the .btt file It says the following. "Just another Beautiful Day.btt: Sorry, this file type is not permitted for security reasons.
  20. A new scenario I designed for the Brits. Hypothetical British Attack from elements of 50th Inf Division backed by elements of the 44th RTR from 4th Bde. vs Both Italian and German units. Hypothetical but hopefully challenging enough for everyone. AI has 2 plans but one more than the other. Played as Allied vs AI, or I think H2H would be fine as well. Looking for some play testers to tell me if any changes need to be done. For some reason I am still having difficulties loading onto the Scenario Depot... so if anyone savvy enough to do that for me that would be great. Have fun and keep your head down. I have attached the .btt file that you can just drop into your Scenario folder. James. Just another Beautiful Day.btt
  21. LOL ahh why did I not think of that.. Reverse engineering...… Well done, thanks! greatly appreciated as I am just finishing up a new Scenario for Italy. Cheers, James
  22. Say was there a link to the Briefing Text document? This was a great add for any scenario designer which assisted in making the Briefing text document look clean and neat. thanks, James.
