  1. Yeah, I guess smoke or using the bocage is the best way to go. Anything else seems like suicide.
  2. I've ran some tests and uploaded a video showing how effective it is to sneak up infantry to a tank with the intention of destroying it with only grenades. So far it seems to me that it's not a very good tactic since the infantry end up getting killed almost every time. Here's a video showing 10 attempts of infantry sneaking up on a Panther G (early) (skill: Veteran, Motivation: Normal, Leadership: +1, Fitness: Fit) using the "slow" command in extra tall grass: The panther only gets destroyed once. I might try this on different terrain later with different skill, motivation,
  3. Battlefront got back to me at the helpdesk and extended my download for another 7 days free of charge since it expired only a few weeks ago. All my install files are now backed up once again. My issue is now resolved and I am now having a blast playing the v 2.0 upgrade I just purchased. Thanks Battlefront!
  4. Thanks The Steppenwulf for clearing that up for me, I was unsure how it worked. Yes I had made a backup for CMBN and all other CMx2 titles I own, but my computer has been through multiple re installs and I have lost those backups. I have now submitted a ticket to the helpdesk and await a response from Battlefront.
  5. I see, I see. I'm sorry I didn't research this before I created this thread. I'm going to contact the helpdesk. Thanks for your replies.
  6. My Download for CMBN has expired at Battlefront.com and I have no backup.:mad:Can anyone give me a link to DL the .exe at dropbox please?
  7. Fantastic! Thank you for taking the time to make those. I'm sure there will be many prospective new players that will stumble upon them. I know that If I still didn't know of this game and watched those videos, I would have been hooked just like I am now.
  8. 23. I got into CM from stumbling upon and watching CMSF video AARs on YouTube. I wish I had heard of Combat Mission before that. I now have all CMx2 games except CMA. I started playing the tank sim Panzer Elite fervently when I was 10 years old! Played that for years. Then I got into the helicopter gunship sim called Enemy Engaged and played that for many more years. More of my favorites were Jane's WWII Fighters, Jane's Fleet Command, Blitzkrieg, and Steel Beasts. I really love playing sims hehe.
  9. baron Jacquinot, nice video. Very cinematic. Also cool channel, I'm subscribing Ithikial_AU, great videos looking forward to the next ones. I'm going to contribute to this with a CMFI video AAR of a scenario vs AI. I'm almost done.
  10. Wow, I'm surprised I never knew that either. I never use smoke much at all but really should more often in my battles.
  11. Couldn't agree with you more. I would never have gotten into any of those Paradox Entertainment games you listed without those great "Let's Play" videos. They give you so much insight into the game and how you can play it. I sometimes end up watching the beginning of a EU3 game to the very end (sometimes a hundred videos put together) because it's so engrossing to watch.
  12. Hey Wolfseven, I watched your video and noticed when you gave your squads the "pop smoke" command that you were dragging the purple line in the direction were you wanted them to throw it. I thought the only way to control the direction they throw the smoke was with the "face" command lol. I just learned something new from that thanks, although I'm still not sure how exactly you did it, (still learning the ropes after 1 1/2 years lol) it looks convenient. You should rename your video and put "CMBN" in the front of the name, that way it will show up when people search "CMBN" in youtube. I tr
  13. You got a nice bunch of videos there. I've seen every one of them and I'm subscribed to your channel:D

  15. Well, I try to follow the style Tanit always did and just record myself playing the battle then afterwards commentating the whole battle. That way you can explain what your doing in the battle to the viewers as they watch. It makes the presentation a lot more effective and the movie much more fun to watch. You can commentate with text in the video or with your own voice if you have a mic. In order to achieve this though you need video editing software, like Sony Movie Studio (what I use) http://www.sonycreativesoftware.com/download/trials/moviestudio or Windows movie maker http://www.mic
