  1. Understandable. I imagine they involve a large amount of time and creative energy. Burnout is a thing. Everyone who downloads your work appreciates what you do even if we don't express it vocally.
  2. According to the info posted by Steve earlier in the thread, Battlefront will still release CMCW in April. The Slitherine release, which includes Steam has been delayed to June, as Slitherine want to test their MP system. So if you buy it from Battlefront you get the game earlier and you can get to test out the Slitherine multiplayer service before it is officially released. As I understand it the game is otherwise finished for release (or very, very close to release).
  3. One thing to be aware of with Steam is updates. Sometimes updates can be unfriendly and break things. If you have an ongoing game that you would be upset about being broken by an update then back up your game folder with your current version of the game. Keep the old pre-update folder that works and run it in parallel with the current install in Steam. Start it from the game.exe in the parallel install folder and you are golden and all is right with the world. Pressing Play in the Steam launcher will give you the current version of the game or try and update the old version beforehand if you didn't rename the folder to something else to leave it untouched. Some games on Steam allow you to roll back updates (Paradox titles, like CK2, EUIV and HOI4 spring to mind), others don't, and you can be stuck with an update that you are non too fond of in some cases.
  4. Early 80s Cold war atmosphere... It would have to be something like this or in an even more bleak tone this or a bit more chilled out, this or for a more obscure left field flavour this Bliss, utter bliss
  5. I've not heard anything to the contrary. I've bought plenty of games from Matrix site, registered them and then claimed my Steam key and registered them to my Steam account. It usually costs a bit more, but it's worth it if in the distant future anything happens with Steam or your online connection goes pear shaped.
  6. If you buy the base game from BF, register it on Matrix site and claim your Steam key there, then any DLC you bought direct from Steam will work with the Steam version of the game, launched from within Steam. The BF version if you run it as a separate install will be unlikely to work with any Steam purchased DLC since BF installs of DLC require activation, and the Steam versions don't appear to use licence keys and activation.
  7. It'll be in a sub-directory of the steamapps\common folder in your Steam directory. In my case since All my Steam games are stored in a Steam folder on the root of my D : drive it's D:\Steam\steamapps\common\Combat Mission Black Sea\Data If you've installed it in the usual Steam default game location it may be C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Combat Mission Black Sea\Data
  8. The Windows link given by Steve in this thread still appears to work https://battlefront.sharefile.com/share/view/s25afa9e71ca4e789/foae431f-161b-4bca-b2c7-ea5701e5ce94 is the download url.
  9. Can I hear the heavy sound of Steve banging his head against the desk from 3,000 miles away? I think it would take longer, and would need thoroughly testing to avoid the inevitable rage posts when things don't work as expected.
  10. How long are you willing to wait for a new engine, and how many years before it gets around to a hypothetical alt-history idea such as this? A "Patton's Dream" 1945 Soviet pack for CMFB would seem a relatively easy option, since all the TOE and modelling work has already been done for Fire and Rubble. Whether Steve thinks it's viable and worthwhile doing is another thing.
  11. Looks awesome. Might need some dock leaves tho 😉
