  1. Long-time Italian happy customer here, and I couldn't be happier with RtV and Gustav Line, but this is difficult news to digest. It is hard to believe that a CMRT: Barbarossa or Stalingrad module wouldn't be appreciated by the market. Or even "Little Saturn". It would be little: only Hungarians, Romanians and Italians to add to the game. That's nothing compared to RtV
  2. Great to see you back too! If you still have energies after all this work and you ever decide to make an Italian partisan mod for CMFI I might be able to help with the voices and text
  3. Yes, of course! And light up their pipes while they're at it No. but I did have a couple of instances where a tank exhausted its ammo pounding the enemy while another fellow tank with a disabled main gun just sat there in the back doing nothing. It would be cool to somehow be able to transfer that ammo to the fully operational vehicle (in safe conditions ;).
  4. Back to the topic: - ability to swap crews between vehicles, tanks especially - ability to acquire ammo from another (disabled) tank - ability to (re)man guns after they've been abandoned by the same or another crew
  5. Thanks for these rules! Excellent. For my purposes, I'll be using the following to make scenarios vs. the AI more challenging in WeGo. In a nutshell: - No area fire unless in command and HQ has LOS to area - No movement outside LOS area unless in command - Scouting teams excepted Back in the day when playing CMx1 games there was something called Franko' Rules (I think) that, among other things, limited your view to level 1 (ground level) when plotting moves and level 7 (eagle's eye) to be used as if it were a physical map, forbidding all other viewing levels since
  6. I have the same problem with CMFI. Double-clicking on the desktop icon will elicit no response. Neither will double-clicking on the .exe file in the BF folder. Absolutely dumbfounding. No other BF game has this issue. Incredibly enough I tried adding it to Steam as a third-party game and it launched perfectly. It's now the only way I can launch it. If you have Steam I'd give it a try.
  7. Hi! I've just started using this. Looks cool. How do I update the cells for "Real World Date"? The default options go from January 2011 to December 2020. How can I change that from, say, from January 2021 to December 2064? Thanks!
  8. Welcome! AFAIK, if your family member is playing in online mode on another PC, you will not be permitted to open any other game with your shared account (regardless of the game you intend to play). Well, at least that's what happens to us in the family. My way around this is to restart in offline mode and everything launches perfectly.
  9. In addition to those mentioned above, one (small) advantage I can think of is that multiple (infinite?) installs are now possible on as many PCs as you like and you no longer need to worry about how many licenses you have left if you have "fried" four PCs in a row during the year. Is that correct? A (small) disadvantage I can think of is that if you use Steam in online mode you will only be able to play the game on one PC at a time. It may be an issue if, for example, one of your family members (my son for me) is using a CM game with a shared family account. You will be thrown out of your
  10. Looking forward to this ever since CMBB came out 🤭 Really, really hope you're going to pull it through.
  11. I found it quite unconvincing. The plot is trite and the characters dull. You always have a sense of having read (or watched) this story elsewhere, over and over again (the cruel occupants..., the young and beautiful rebel..., the heroic fight... bla, bla), very unlike other semi-historical shows that retain an element of unexpected plot twists, like Game of Thrones for example. But I might be biased as I identified with the losing side The Latin spoken by the actors is a washed-out version of the Italian pronunciation I learned at high school, proven to be quite incorrect. "Il primo
  12. I liked it very much too. The cartoonish effect reminded me of the ww2 comic books I used to read as a kid (in the 70s). The larger-than-life heroism goes well with the format in my opinion. Although as a CM player I cringed when I saw a 60mm mortar taking out a German panzer with its second round or when artillery scored direct hits on two tanks in the very first barrage. Aaaargh! I never had that kind of luck going for me!
  13. Here you go. Found a couple of typos in the first two paragraphs. Can't see any other. "September 2016 Battlefront.com was founded in 1998 to provide high quality, innovative games for people looking for serious wargames. At the time such games had been all but squeezed out of the marketplace by the crushing forces of retail sales practices. To woark work around this problem Battlefront unvieled unveiled itself in 1999 as an Internet only company. It's hard to believe now, but industry veterans and so-called experts said "you're crazy, it will never work". 20 years
