  1. It seems that the download page is down: "the link you are trying to access doesn't exist"
  2. Hello there ! Did someone know if this is still an issue or did I miss an update ?
  3. No. The man said he didn't have the tiger with the henschel turret and I replied that it might be because he doesn't own market garden. The problem is that the tiger with the porsche turret isn't available in quick battle.
  4. Indeed, Heavy Tank (PzVIB King Tiger) is in the list. The King Tiger with the henschel turret came with the market garden expansion, maybe you don't own it or have it installed ?
  5. In september 44 I've got access to the kingtiger which is the henschel version. Well... I always pick what the AI will play with to make sure they have a coherent force. As for players... I guess you could talk and come to an agreement before
  6. With that you would probably level the entire map Anyway I'm not sure at all you'd see a lancaster in a battle, typically heavy bombers lack the flexibility to operate at a tactical level, which is reserved to the more nimble and faster airplanes like light bombers or fighters.
  7. I already checked and the kingtigers that you are seeing must be the kingtigers with the henschel turret rather than the porsche turret, you can tell the difference cause the later is identified as Kingtiger (porsche). And you should have access to it in july and august.
  8. Thank you very much sir ! I'll check thoroughly what you did and then I'll try to replicate it on another map to see if I get the hang of it.
  9. Thanks for your answers, I hoped there would be an easy way to mess around but unfortunately things are always more complicated than expected. I attached my "test scenario", that is remarkably well balanced by the way (it's not). test.btt
  10. Hello ! I've been working (struggling) with the editor for a few hours and I'm quite stuck now. Generally I'm playing CMs only with qb because... well I just like it a lot. However I acquired CM normandy some days ago and found that the Konigstiger(P) was not available in qb (yes the disappointment was unbearable ), I looked on the forums to see if we could modify a file to change the qb unit list (which would be super neat btw) , if there's a mod to fix this but nope the only way seems to be the editor. I didn't want to create a map or an advanced scenario but rather to "mimic" a qb as I read it was possible. So I loaded a qb map, saw that there were setup zones for an allied attack and a german defense, that there was one terrain objective and no casulaties objective (which I messed around a bit but I'm not sure if I did good there). I then "purchased" both sides forces like I usually do and I put one platoon in group A1, the other in A2 and so on not really knowing if it was something to do. I launched my test "scenario", I deployed my forces as the defender and waited for the US to attack and this is where things went quite wrong; I was affraid that the AI wouldn't do anything so I was relieved to see some movement, except that the AI attacked my right flank with all the armor that I had given to it, well I wasn't sure if it was a problem or not since it could be a valuable tactic but in fine I destroyed them all and they gave back enough destruction to make it enjoyable. However no sign of the infantry except two squads that didn't go far on my left flank, I passed quite a lot of time and... nothing. Made the cease fire and saw that the AI had more than 250 men up and ready, reviewed the map and so all the squads comfy in their halftracked completely still on the edge of the map. Does anyone know what I did wrong ? Or if it's possible to do a simple qb like scenario without having to spend a week on Ai and testing since I want the AI to do it's own things rather than to tell it to do this then that and so on ? Thank you for reading !
  11. I was searching for it but didn't find it By the way is there any chance we can modify a file to make the tank available in qb ?
  12. Combat mission Shock force 2 : Jousting edition ?
  13. Thank you all for your answers ! Unexpected expanses made my choice much simpler, it is going to be CMSF2 alone and on sale. To be fair I quite like low intensity fights and I play my combat missions games on quick battles with medium points because I really enjoy when every unit/vehicle counts. I for sure will buy Black sea in the future, like the CMSF2 modules but for now it will be the base game.
  14. This is what I was concerned about, I already own red thunder and Fortress Italy but I was thinking of buying Black sea or Shock force 2 to change a bit, with the current sales I wondered if it was a better idea to take CMSF2 with NATO or USMC rather than black sea so I'm on the fence.
  15. Hello everyone. I know that this question has already been posted a few years ago but since I cannot buy the full CMSF2 bundle but just the base game with maybe one expansion I was wondering if I should get black sea instead. I'm really interested in both game, perhaps a little bit more in CMFS2 but I don't know if I should wait until I can get the "whole experience" or go for it and buy the rest later. So I would like to know your thoughts about it, thank you.
  16. I do agree to a lot of your comments, when I made this post I was thinking especially about AT guns, omnipurpose guns / fire support guns are really usefull but I was more in a situation where I only got at my disposal infantry available (with their support equippement) whereas my opponent would have access to a large panel of armored vehicles. So would I be able to bring my AT gun close enough, good LOS and set it up fast enough to get a shot to the ennemy armor ? For this I'd think that the size and nature of the map is critic : you could bring an AT gun to use if you can set it up in a way where the gun is far enough and have an appropriate LOS where you need to attack. But even in this "perfect" case scenario you'd still be vulnerable to ennemy fire (guns, mgs) and of course a well aimed mortar barrage would put an end to this. However I'm pretty sure that if you try to set up an AT gun on an uneven map and/or too close to the ennemy your try will end well before you could say. So if I'm on a situation where I couldn't rely on armor to deal with potential armor, even if I put the map selection on random, I wouldn't spend ressources on canons, even if they're cheap, but I would make sure to have a lot of panzerschreks/faust/PIAT/Bazookas and on regular artillery(off map) not to waste my time on a tricky canon set up, the odds are too unfavorable for it to be worth it IMHO.
  17. Thank you for all of your answers, I'm doing a lot of QB against the AI and find out that some countries/corps don't have any kind of tank/SPG at specific times during the war. Thus I was wondering the "practicality", so to speak, of launching an attack with such a force and it seems that it's a complicated trick to realize and that the terrain has to be on your side. I did prevail against the AI once while I had no tanks against a "almost no infantry only tanks" ennemy (now I tend to manually choose the AI forces even if that's quite an advantage to get something more realistic). Though the terrain was montainous with some haze using panzerschreks, some panzerfausts and relying heavily on artillery to overwhelm the shermans and perhaps kill the open topped achilles. The casualty were high even if there was no open flat "no man's land" between them and my gebirgsjager thanks to the outstanding ability of the tanks crew to spot laid german troops on the side of their machines.
  18. Hello I was wondering about the usefulness of canons during an attack. As far as I know canons are good in defense, you put them concealed here and there and they can be a nasty surprise for your opponent's armor. However I do prefer self propelled canons even in defense in spite of their cost since when a canon is spotted, when it shoots basically, it become a priority target for the ennemy's artillery and your canon is probably going to be destroyed really easily because of it's lack of armor whereas a tank or SPG will survive (generally) and can retreat pretty fast. My question is about the usefulness of canons in an attack situation, imagine you've got yourself in a situation when you've only access to infantry to attack an ennemy that probably has some armor at his disposal. In this case do you rely solely on your panzerfaust/schreck or do you bring a pak 40 or a pak 40 with a truck ? I guess it would be too slow to bring a canon without a truck and even then you'd better drop the gun not too close to the ennemy and it would take some time to position the gun so... Is there a point to bring a canon as an attacker or even in a meeting engagement ?
