  1. recently upgraded to Big Sur 11.1. The Mac has a Radeon Pro 580X 8GB. All working with CM titles prior to software upgrade. having an issue importing tactical maps into scenario editor. If I flip horizontal an image, once imported the image is blank. If I don't flip the image horizontally the image is ok apart from being the incorrect way round. As a workaround I've used keynote. Built map in keynote. Screenshot the map. Flip the screenshot. Dropped the inverted image back into keynote. Screenshot the inverted map in keynote. Works ok but a tad convoluted. If
  2. @Rastamon Would be very interested in your research, thanks for the offer! The area of South West of Malmedy has changed a lot since the war, probably more than most of the Peiper route. I spent sometime looking for Currey's House to model in the scenario. The closest I've found is from Jay Karamales / Reynolds YouTube video taken in 1993, 1 hour 23 minutes in. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zETC2h4PqZo Trying to look for an aerial photo I found reference to Nat Archives, Malmedy Map 3 US 30/5198 taken 24th December 1944. I found a resulting sketch map but finding the photo I t
  3. Blank master map of the area. Think I've removed all flavour objects. Haven't played CMBS for awhile as I've been busy on this, but it is my favourite, so will be interesting to use the conversion, good luck. Stavelot Master TheForger.btt
  4. Not a problem. The master version extends 2kms (3.7 kms total) further west. Would you prefer that one? To be clear no forces, objects, briefing info, objectives, setup zones?
  5. The maps my own. It features 4 times in the campaign so it takes on progressively more damage and contains more wrecks. Used a lot of pre war postcards to try and get the look of the buildings as close as possible. http://www.oldhickory30th.com was a good resource too. I'll take a look at the uniforms not really considered that.
  6. Storming Stavelot 7 Scenarios into the Rollbahn D campaign so the Germans are a little less healthy than in this standalone version but give it a run out. Only 1x AI plan at the moment in this version. Storming Stavelot.btt
  7. I have some content but it's for my first campaign compilation, Rollbahn D. I started building in March. It's based on KG Peiper. The ambition is/was to produce an historical scenario for every 6 hours or so of the KG and associated units, their advance and eventual destruction, from the 16th to Xmas. So far in the "can" I have Murky Merlscheid (Fallschirmjäger) Leaving Lanzerath (Fallshirmjager) Minen The Gap (Losheim/Scheid, Spitze) Breakthrough (Bucholz/Honsfeld) Bull-in-gen China Shop Butchers Of Baugnez (thanks for the Cafe/Hotel/Signpo
  8. Maybe a feature rather than bug. I did notice another incident with an Ami who had surrendered, with his arms a loft get shot, all a bit too realistic for a Peiper campaign. I have a wide variety of troops, green to vets with a few fanatics thrown in. About 50% of the scenarios have initially poor visibility, and all the incidents have occurred in poor visibility. Saying that I plan to reimport the units after this test run and will continue to monitor.
  9. All low calibre infantry weapons, which is why it caught my eye, thought I was seeing things. Thanks for the interest all.
  10. Fair point, early morning before first light so visibility not great. Maybe a feature rather than bug. But after 3 occasions in separate campaign scenarios I thought I'd call it out. The Pioneer HQ were vets, so experience a non issue.
  11. They had no fire orders. I let the first couple of incidents pass with the fallshirmjager but third time I thought I'd call it out.
  12. thanks, I'll drop you message the file is too big to upload here. It's happened on 3 occasions whilst testing. I do play in iron mode but never noticed being shot at by my own side Fallshrimjager and Grenadiers in earlier scenarios. This latest incident 2./Zug HQ Pioneer team start shooting at Grenadiers 1./Zug 11th Kompanie who are in a building opposite, 2nd and third floor. They are in the eastern group of German forces.
  13. I've been in the process of building a campaign for most of the year and during recent scenario testing I'm seeing incidents of friendly fire from my panzergrenadiers! CMFB, V2.03, Engine 4 MAC Catalina 10.15.7
  14. it was not designed to be overly historical or to play H2H. It was designed to try and give a flavour of the whole battle in a single scenario. Think Battle of the Bulge the Movie 😀. Saying that I have no problem with anyone amending and republishing as a H2H scenario should they wish to do so.
  15. Appreciate the great responses, every post really useful advice. Will take all on board and see how testing pans out.
