  1. I'm glad there's an AI in these games, cause I wouldn't want to play against you guys. Second, don't **** with the USMC. Makes me proud to be an American and a member of NATO.
  2. Sorry, I haven't visited BF forums in a while and got all excited about CMSF2. I appreciate BF didn't ban me. 😉 Then David Heath, the previous founder of Matrix, calls me at 8:45pm about some minor issue with Lock n' Load's Command Ops 2 on Steam that got resolved. I guess it's a pretty small world when it comes to digital wargames. Not easy getting the younger generation interested, but we'll see.
  3. First, would like to thank Battlefront for the generous $35 fee to update my CMSF1 package. We know it is a huge project, and better additional delays then having serious release-day problems. Anyway, for you boardgaming grogs out there, this upcoming digital game may be of interest. Some of you may have played the public version the dev has (charitably) made available for years at no charge. Quite different theater than CMSF2, but modern combat just the same. Although from a different publisher, I have high hopes for it and the dev's success. He is a good man! - Mike
  4. Would delete thread if I could.
  5. It's in the designers notes and briefing. Same map with minor change, but a very different situation. In first scenario, all the troops on both sides were at 60% strength, worn out; these are all fresh, with significant German reinforcements coming from unknown directions to aid their weary comrades just as the Amis advance on two objectives.
  6. After playing CMBO since its release on the Mac, I have finally created a scenario. This fact alone should make you wary. While there are at least 450 scenarios I could find for CMBN V2-3, not so many for CMFB V3. Notice I said Version 3, which shouldn't be a problem for V4 players. So if you are really desperate, give it a try.

  7. I just wanted to thank you - for not having sales events. At BF, the game is released and you buy. There is no reason to wait until it's 50% off. I have spent thousands of dollars (it's possible) with another well known wargame publisher as well over the years, who pretty much held prices. Now they are on a Steam "wait several months" and get a sale craze. This is wonderful for new customers, but punishes early supporters like myself. So when SC3 or Steel Tigers comes out, I am going to wait until 50% off on Steam if it takes five years
  8. My first computer wargame was Crawford's Atari cartridge, too. I was hoping to one day make some money on it.
  9. Also remember the CM Decompiler by Mike works on all these campaigns. I have it, but unfortunately don't have a direct link to the utility.
  10. Maybe we should ask the designers and betas of StratCom2 Patton Drives East this question.
  11. One other thing that could make a difference for you. I have almost 200 custom scenarios (not including mods) created by some talented people for CMBN and its modules. CMBS is great, but it will be a long time, if ever, for the newer games to get such huge mod content. These are available from BF repository, or better yet, GreenAsJade's website. Have fun!
  12. I would be much more encouraged by a standalone that performs like CMBS. Maybe because it's the modern era, but it's like engine 4 compared to say RT's engine 3.x. And I'm running a pretty weak rig.
  13. Thanks for the thoughtful assessment, SW. I assume one could add more units in the SC editor, if that was your meaning. Anyway, very helpful, as most of us have more games than we have time.
  14. Downloading the map mod now. And thanks to GaJ's site for making it so easy to find! I admit I will never do mod tags, but the map itself is inspiration for normal scenario making. Thanks again, gentlemen.
  15. Glad to hear about the AI. I have not put the SC WW1 titles through their paces, despite buying on release days. I do have a little time in To End All Wars, which looks so sexy and complex and new. But there has been significant criticism of poor AI on this particular Ageod title, for some reason. So, who (besides our beloved fanmen) can compare these two games? Nothing touches SC's editor, although I have modded Ageod engines. It's much harder to do, and/or I've done it poorly. TEAW is also lacking in terms of scenario content, imo. My issue is the SC games (even WW2) look so much ali
  16. The main thing is the game engine, which I'm sure they will tweak even more. CMBS blows CMRT out of the water in terms of innovations and performance (on my humble computer), even though RT is engine 3.x.
  17. I could see the headline now: U.S. wargame developer 'predicted' current events in Crimea, Ukraine I would not be so quick to dismiss Hister's suggestion. You'd have to provide everything relevant you've said on the issue from day-one. A daunting task but easily documented by your posts. But I can see the benefits for BFC and the media, in general. Depending on how good Hister's and other's connections are. I have been a magazine editor for 30 years, and writing is the most difficult thing I do in my life. So not like I'm looking for more pain. But I volunteer if needed.
  18. I can't see the average Russian buying into whatever promises he's given. Nor have his actions contributed to the dream of a Russian resurgence - yet. The populace at large has long been cynical of government by nature, don't you think? And a change would bring "reformers" not hardliners, and maybe that's all wishful thinking.
  19. This discussion has remained generally tactical, as it should be regarding CMBS. What concerns me is Sburke's comment, ..."and then it gets interesting." Can this group agree on possible outcomes? If not, what can be ruled out: 1. Russia's fortunes improve significantly, Putin gets much of what he wants, and NATO (the West) backs down. Possible? 2. The opposite happens and Putin decides to go full scale? What is the West's response? If there's no point in addressing these strategic issues, no problem. I don't expect to sleep any better tonight.
  20. That sure wasn't a problem in my CMSF game last night ;-=) I'll wait for fixes before moving to CMBS, which is superior in every other way.
  21. Was playing CMSF last night, and there is a "general" option. Was wondering, too. I was using general for buildings.
  22. I agree this should be looked into and not just shrugged off. With all due respect :-)
  23. You may remember that feature was available way back in the Theatre of War Kursk/Caen days. You could even filter it by size of shot, penetration, etc. They were fun games, but never up to CMx2 standards.
