  1. Hi all, is A Few Good Men now the only location for scenarios? I recall there being 1-2 other locations. https://www.thefewgoodmen.com/tsd3/
  2. So whats happening here is that you stream a video of a game to a user and when they move their mouse/press a key Steam picks that up and tells your computer to make that input. The person you are playing with will then see their movements reflected in the video stream. Importantly this means that you cannot touch your mouse/keyboard while the other person is taking an action as it will override their inputs.
  3. I count this as part of the website. THere have been times I didnt know about releases for a year or more because i hadn;t come here.
  4. @IICptMillerII I mean really the whole thing is pretty simple - I would think it would be common sense; 1. Don't call people mentally damaged 2. Maybe don't go around complaining about moral virtue signaling after you called people mentally damaged. 3. If you can do neither of those then don't make the post. 3a. If you absolutely cannot help yourself remove the beta tester tag. Because fundamentally if there are in fact these mental defectives obsessed with Combat Mission your posts will not dissuade them. However, your posts sure as hell paint Battlefront in a bad light.
  5. Yea, its more than a little frustrating as someone whose enjoyed the games a lot. I'm spending a fair amount of time in the last few days trying to help people out over on the Steam forums and put a good face on the game. I don't want to have to deal with people talking faster than they can think. lawl - so much for some humility.
  6. --------- @gallycadet Responding to some of your review's points. 1. Combat Mission compared to othe CMO/Armored Brigade: You might disagree with me but I own both along with CM and wouldn't really consider them similar at all. Just from a scale perspective CM does not replace Armored Brigade or CMO and those games do not replace Combat Mission. Armored Brigade is really good at Brigade sized engagements, hence the name, CMO is often smaller scale but also doesn't do ground combat particularly well. Essentially in either of those games you aren't going to be having a very interest
  7. They are unpaid volunteers but I'm describing the view point of people outside these forums. If you have the beta tester tag you are a de-facto representative regardless of whether Battlefront wants you to be or not.
  8. Yea the reviews have been quite good. The lowest it got that I saw was a 78% which is very respectable.
  9. Yea this sort of post is absolutely ****ing whack. Pro-tip: If you are going to lead with calling people who dislike the game mentally disturbed maybe you should stop posting here. ------ Like this is embarrassing to anyone who attempts to talk about the game in other venues. How do I go on Steam Discussion or Reddit or whatever and say "well they actually aren't huge snobs" when 3rd post literally calls them mentally unstable? Especially if your label is Beta Tester you ought to be presenting yourself better since you are de-facto a representative of the game to many people.
  10. Also remember that in hull down positions you are losing the driver's ability to spot. This is more significant in the WW2 games where you also have a 2nd man in the hull.
  11. Automatic patching Ease of install (don't need to login to BFC's website to download) Still kinda easier from a DRM perspective. This would have been a bigger win a few years ago when the Battlefront DRM was an actual pain in the ass. It now sits alongside my hundreds of other games on Steam. Specifically under my wojna filter This is actually a pretty big deal for me. Now when I'm bored I see Combat Mission right alongside Command Ops 2, Armored Brigade, Arma, Il-2, Hegemony, War in the East, etc... Previously Combat Mission was something I had to actively consider play
  12. Btw folks if you have redeemed your game on Steam be sure to leave a review. Well done reviews are important to the marketing of the game on Steam
  13. The Steam version goes into the Steam downloads folder. You have to redirect your PBEM games there. Essentially the game doesn't actually track your PBEM games and it was always reliant on you putting them in the right place. Steam changes the location so you will need to update any PBEM helper programs to use that new location.
  14. Huh, looks like someone's put the tutorial on Steam. Thats a cool use of the guides section
  15. @gallycadet ANd anyone else really. Steam keys are available I just had to hard refresh the site a few times.
  16. I received my keys - had to hard refresh the site.
  17. Yep, has anyone received Steam Keys as of yet? Although this is probably a bettter question to be asked over on the Slitherine side of things since they are handling it.
  18. @gallycadet pricing: The pricing and sales are controlled by Battlefront (well I guess technically Slitherine would communicate that to Steam). The current setup isn't that unusual for any game with a decent amount of DLC. You place the base game on sale to get an install base that will buy your DLC. This is especially true for an initial release where you have a relatively small install base. Once you've heavily sold your base game you then do DLC sales but without that install base there isn't much of a point. Its very similar to Humble Monthly sales or really just any game post-relea
  19. The quality of the Steam forums depends on the game. Usually wargames have decent communities. My personal pref would be to lock down the Steam forum to exclusively announcments and direct all users over here.
  20. I can't recall a single game released on Steam that doesn't have automatic patching. I literally don't think you can do it. However, I think what people are getting at is paid patches. My guess is those won't continue but it would be possible by labeling them as DLC on Steam.
  21. I'm trying to recall a tutorial PDF that I remember using when I first played CM:SF - does anyone recall it or have access to it. I checked my CM:SF2 download but no dice.
  22. If load times are an issue an SSD would likely solve those problems.
  23. These are coming on the release date Aug. 25th. @Pandur
