  1. Great mod, would be too bad to miss it . Left down picture from "Mort aux cons" illustrates perfectly what the mod is rendering.
  2. @Lethaface An AAR that would be great ! . Have a good fight
  3. You are correct, It features Morrocan troops. I tried hard to have Goumiers in the game, but that was not possible. Thanks for enjoying the scenario.
  4. Good guess for the reasons making at the time, the French a non selling factor. For the Russian airborne troops -VDV and the US Marines pack, You have heard more than I have, not to say nothing. A new NATO if it comes to be done would be a very interesting release, but it should take in account quite a few new comers. That might raise the cost of the game to a high stake and therefore put an end to the idea.
  5. @FoxZz If your plea could become true, it would be fantastic. However, I do not think that it is in the pipe for the time being. Too bad. I really think that what the French Army and Air Force are demonstrating in Mali and the support they give in Syria should be a very good opportunity for BF to reconsider its actual position. Their reason has surely something to do with the cost of creating all these new vehicles and tracks, but they have done it for NATO, released with Germans and Dutch forces. Why the French forces were omitted at the time ? Maybe they did not consider it would have a su

As far as I remember it, the Goumiers might not show up despite all the points I provided for having them with the French Corp. They played a major part in the French's battles in particular at Monte Cassino, breaching the defense and opening the way to Rome for the allied forces.
  7. Sburke, once you get into the Foreign Legion,being a foreigner, they keep all your papers, like passport, Id cards ………..If you leave before your term you are researched as an AWOL at least or a deserter at the best. You better not be found on a French soil later on.
  8. You are nearly all the way right. I was in Algeria at the time of the war, younger to be in the Army but able to see many things. I also had many opportunities to meet Foreign Legion troopers and officers (quite a few German) and other regular officers that had returned from Indochina, either when the troops left or when they were liberated from the Viets POW's camps. Yes, the FLN had been brought to a near collapse. The Army had its share, but also the special Ops that triggered an FLN Blue on Blue internal fight, many thinking that others were traitors, they killed each other leaders. That w
  9. I fully agree with you FoxZz and Combatintman. The French Army and its equipments are not really well known to many peoples and that is unfortunate. I have tried to raise some interest from BF for including them in Nato. I think today that some lack of interest from quite a few potentials customers could be the main reason for not having convinced Steve. We have to understand that in order to do the French Army a lot of time will be needed. Since time and money are directly related, first in the making of a game and second in its sales, I do understand that as long as the balance tilts on the
  10. The install will be done on C:\ by default C:\Program files(x86) \ Battlefront \ combat Mission Shock Force 2 Check that it is there and that the Data folder(in which are the Brz files) has been copied in it. If not you must do again the install
  11. I forgot to mention that the WIP area seen on the map has been done at the time of its release on Fewgoodmen.
  12. Thanks Combatintman for mentioning my work. The map can be played H2H and or QB. It is available here : http://www.thefewgoodmen.com/tsd3/cm-black-sea/cm-black-sea-add-ons-maps/__trashed/ If that can help you here are some shots of the airport multi stories facilities with damages done to it and an overall view of the map area.

Here's where things stand: The original CMFI TO&E was put into place years ago and (for coding reasons that have since changed) was kept totally separate from CMBN's TO&E. When we went to make Engine 3 the CMBN TO&E was standardized and used for CMRT and then later Engine 4 and CMFB. This meant that fixes for one were applied to all. Unfortunately, CMFI was not brought into compliance until now because it's a massive amount of work. Such are the joys of maturing a game engine instead of starting from scratch every 2-3 years or just
  14. Erwin, as you know I am a fervent defender of Real Time playing. However, I must confess that since, I have play tested many scenarios and had no choice but to play WEGO in order to keep a situation awareness of my tactical movements and of the enemies. That to be able to report a workable AAR to the scenario designer and help him in his appraisal. Sure enough I always fought better than playing it R.T. So my advice is, if you want to get some results and fewer casualties play "UK Helluva Road Opening" WEGO. If you want to find what troops at lower echelon usually feel in a real engagement pl
  15. Combatintman was referring to the Special Iraqi Force. They are wearing black uniforms and riding black Humvees. A way to distinguish themselves to their foes. They have a fierce reputation.
