The Scenario Depot III

Recommended Posts

Hello Gentlemen


I bring you exciting news of the new Scenario Depot III which has been funded by The Few Good Men.  As we all know The Scenario Depot II was the go to place for Scenario downloads with its most successful period being from the mid-90's to the early 00's for the CMX1 series of games.  Unfortunately it was never updated to encompass the CMX2 series of games but all that is about to change.  I introduce to you The Scenario Depot III.




The new site is a community wide project and despite being hosted on The Few Good Men servers membership of The FGM is not required.  We have reached a stage where the site is pretty much finished and all that remains to be tested now is its load bearing capabilities.  


The Scenario Depot III is the place to upload your completed play tested scenarios for the enjoyment of the CMx2 community and I'm asking if you scenario designers out there would do me the honour of starting to upload your scenarios to the database as a stress test exercise.  If all goes well The Scenario Depot III will be up and running henceforth.


The site is available HERE


Please read 'The About The Scenario Depot III' section and then go to 'Upload A File' to go through the simple process of getting your scenario into our database awaiting front page post upload. 


I would like to thank Gary Krockover the original designer of The Scenario Depot II and The Proving Grounds for his permission to launch the next era of the sites catering for the new games released by Battlefront in the CMX2 series.


The site covers all CMX2 games [Afghanistan, Shock Force, Battles for Normandy, Fortress Italy, Red Thunder , Black Sea] and has areas waiting to be opened for the Bulge games forthcoming release.


As well as scenarios and campaigns the site also offers the capability of uploading user designed maps for players to download.


At present we have just the one map uploaded so please pop over and start adding your content and if you wish to donate towards the endeavour there is a link at the bottom of the right hand column for you generous folk out there.  Donations will go towards the programmes required to get The Proving Grounds up and running which is phase 2 of the project.  I look forward to seeing your work being submitted.


Thanks for reading.

Yes that'll be the reason... thanks.  As an aside Im not a member of all the CM-centric clubs out there so have not posted in them all.  If anyone is a member at them please drop a link in advising them of TSD3.  Thanks.

Any ETA on when The Proving Grounds (your place to test w.i.p. scenario's) will be available?

What's the thinking on the Proving Grounds process to manage uploads, testing, feedback, and finishing (for posting to TSDIII)? 

Thank you and the rest of The Few Good Men for making Scenario Depot III happen.


Thanks Lee... it needs the full support of the CM community to succeed for sure.  B)

In all honesty I had expected it to be in place by now but I sort of got caught up in another exciting project which has been a drain on the time I have available.  Needless to say we are talking days and not weeks if that's any help.

Thanks RockinHarry.  TSDIII is released and just to toss a teaser out there to the community here is a page of The Proving Grounds II to prove it is actually nearly complete.  Been tied up with another exciting project at present but take a look below.  One of the things I will be incorporating is level of testing for new scenarios submitted to The Proving Grounds.... you can actually request a level of testing which should help getting scenarios cycled through TPG to TSD quicker as authors can be specific about what they want targetted for testing.
