  1. Missed this one earlier, but there's a full campaign "Die Letzte Hoffnung" at the Scenario Depot. https://www.thefewgoodmen.com/tsd3/combat-mission-battle-for-normandy/cm-battle-for-normandy-campaigns/campaign-die-letzte-hoffnung-v1-01/
  2. Z folder is for mods. Campaigns in the game files folder is where they go. Jyri
  3. When I reached the Town Square I saw an obelisk. so I took a closer look at it. One side read which made sense after I did the translation. The OTHER side however.... Now, that's just silly. Jyri
  4. Been a while since I played it, but if I remember correctly, the biggest "problem" is due to the TO&E changes between versions. While tanks still appear, after the first scenario, you don't get the full complement any longer, so you have to be VERY careful with them. Jyri
  5. No unlicense/uninstall available. Simply install & you're done. IIRC you get 3 installs initially and then 1 install added to the limit per year. Jyri
  6. Not sure what the problem is, but I replayed it when 4.01 came out & the only problem I had was the "running the wrong way in bocage" issue. Neither the AT gun nor tank issues occurred for me. Jyri
  7. I have seen AA shoot down aircraft, but it's very rare. In the "Road to Bastogne" (Fuhrer Begleit Brigade) campaign I managed to shoot down 3 or 4 in the span of the campaign. Considering you get up to a dozen or so AA in some battles it's still not a good total and most of the time you miss or manage to drive them off for that run if you're lucky. That said, when you know the opposing side has aircraft, it's usually another episode of that game show skit "How not to be seen" an hope the aircraft don't find you anyways. Now, I will admit that seeing a dozen flak open up & shoot into the sky is pretty cool to watch, and if they do hit the plane, the crash is VERY satisfying... Jyri
  8. It makes firing/using your weapons tougher/impossible depending on the level of damage received. Jyri
  9. Fired it up and I would agree that "hiding" in the woods is a good start. IIRC, the method I used was jumping from woods to woods, to close in to the objectives, making sure the rush was covered with smoke or the terrain since Russian fire was deadly. Do LOTS of reconnaisance before exposing your armour so you can get fire superiority. Worst thing was the airstrikes that seemd to know the exact location of my troops in the woods while they were hiding. Jyri
  10. If you look at the position of the machinegun in each, I would suspect the reason is because the US HT MG is up high, while the German is set lower (and with a shield to boot), which would allow firing even when butttoned up. Jyri
  11. Oh yeah. Big time. Total annihilation. It's been a while, but I believe jeeps/trucks will also do it. Not sure about infantry, but I think they might be able to set one off from time to time. Jyri
  12. Probably THE most amazing thing I ever saw in a game was when I called a 60mm mortar strike on an M3 Stuart to distract it while I could move my troops close enough to take it out & when the first shots starting coming down seeing it explode. When I rewound & watched it over I saw that a mortarshell went right into the open hatch, causing its destruction. THAT was something. Jyri Erik
  13. Didn't find a screen shot thread, so I decided to put this in its own thread. What can be achieved by sneaking up from behind .
  14. It can be done. But it's not easy. There's a scenario in FI where you get several Brumbärs. Found a minefield where I was trying to outflank so I decided to use a few to try to clear the minefield. Don't remember how many shots it took, but I think about a dozen shells cleared the minefield (and left some NASTY shell holes). Just might be the 150mm howitzer armament... Jyri
  15. It's a "little" convoluted. I'll use CMBN as an example. Right-click on CMBN. Choose "Show Package Contents" Go to Contents/Resources/Data and create a "Z" folder there. I then recommend placing an alias of both Data & Z folders in the main folder of your CM game to make future access easier. Repeat for each game you have. I also have an alias for the "Game Files" folder in the main directory for each game to make adding campaigns and scenarios easier. Jyri
  16. Been MANY years, but I once knocked out a tank with an 81mm mortar shot. Once in a liftime hit. Was laying in some mortar fire to suppress the tank so my own would have a better chance to kill it without getting shot up itself. The tank was opened up & the mortar shell managed to fall right into the hatch. Explosion was magnificent. Ah, to be young and foolish & not thinking of recording the moment. Other than that one time, never destroyed a tank with artillery. That said, have seen many crippled by artillery fire (tracks, gun, etc knocked out). Jyri
  17. Here. http://www.combatmission.lesliesoftware.com/RedThunder/Campaigns/CMRT Kampfgruppe von Schroif_v4.html
  18. Kampfgruppe Engel is the one that got fixed in CMBN. Jyri
  19. Disappearing bug. Due to TO&E changes it happens in several campaigns. Jyri
  20. Wondering if there's a problem. I hit the dowload button and it goes into limbo. Jyri
  21. Weird. I see the greyed out weapon all the time, but on tanks. I assume it to mean "loading weapon" since the main gun always goes grey after it shoots & after an appropriate wait, it goes "active" again and is able to fire. Never had a tank use all its ammo, so not sure if they grey out after using their entire load. Guess I'll do a trial & see... UPDATE. Okay, here's what I found (looks like my memory was a little off). At the end of a turn a weapon will grey out if it just fired (had both main guns & MGs do so), but not while firing during the turn. Once it's out of ammo, then it greys out for good. Jyri
  22. It's a cheap answer, but yes. You should buy the Market Garden & Commonwealth DLC and CMFB. Seriously, the answer depends on what interests you. CMFB has Sturmtigers, Jagdtigers, Easy Eights & other late war flavor. Market Garden & Commonwealth has British Churchills, Cromwells and quite a few unit types you won't see elsewhere (Kriegsmarine infantry, etc). Either is a good choice & neither a bad one.
  23. I'm assuming you're referring to the German Campaign battle. That said, I had more than enough time to win the battle without having to rush. "Simply" a matter of waiting for the Panthers & King Tigers and leading with them while having MASSIVE overwatch supporting them. You have lots of MG ammo in your tanks should be spraying every bit of cover while moving forward.
