I think I played just about every scenario that came with the game, some of them many times.

Me too. And some user created scenarios. There was a guy who went by the handle "RikkiTikki" who developed scenarios. Did a large amphibious assault he made up. Great fun.

As a substitute for TacOps that I've been having a lot of fun with you might try "Flashpoint Campaigns" available from Matrix. Same general scale, better graphics. There is an add on Fulda Gap DLC as well. Scenarios and campaigns. Apologies if you are already well aware of this.

An undocumented feature of Tacops is that a copy of an installed version will run perfectly well on another computer without needing to be installed. Before connecting USB's to office computers was banned, I used to run Tacops on my office computer at lunchtime off a USB. So if anyone has a copy of the installed version on an old PC or hard drive, it can simply be copied as is onto your newer computer.

But. There is always a but...

Tacops behaved well on every version of Windows until a recent update of Windows 10. Now, the unit selection panel does not appear during game set up, so it is no longer possible to start a new game. Saved games will load and play no problem, it is only the selection panel in set up.

Bummer, I never stopped playing it.

Strange, unit setup works fine in Wine at this time.
