Comprehensive CMx1 Collection


Recommended Posts

THE BASIC PROBLEM:

I'm sure that you've all noticed over the years that this scenario plays itself out over and over:

Person A: "Hey, does anyone still have X for $Insert_Game_Name$ ?"

Person B: "Yeah sure, here, let me put it up on my webspace or on a random download server like Mega.NZ"

<five years pass>

Person C enters the thread and gets excited.

Person C "The link doesn't work anymore!"

*pause*

Person C "Hey, does anyone still have X for $Insert_Game_Name$ ?"

A Potential Solution: Might be with the Internet Archive. It's funded by a foundation and they seem to be relatively durable; so they're the closest thing to archival on-line storage we might see for some time.

With that in mind, I've been slowly working on a project for the last month to quasi bring back the old Wargamer.com scenario archive back from the dead -- and that's morphed into a general archiving program for old game mods and such.

Naturally, I did the Combat Mission x1 series.

============================================================

GENERAL INTERNET ARCHIVE NOTE: 
If you wish to download a specific file within the main ZIP container, just click on the (View Contents) link on the contents page.

The Proving Grounds / The Scenario Depot II Site Rip (with Meta Data)

(NOTE, I've duplicated the scenarios themselves in each CMx1 individual
scenario archive, but this is here for completeness since TPG/TSDII were quite
important CMx1 websites back in the day)

Information Page

From 5 to 8 May 2021; I ripped the following websites:

THE PROVING GROUND (TPG)
http://garykrockover.com/cmbb/index.html

Site Rip as of 5 May 2021 has:

6 x CMBO Scenarios
281 x CMBB Scenarios
223 x CMAK Scenarios

2 x CMBO Maps (some are not downloadable)
73 x CMBB Maps (some are not downloadable)
43 x CMAK Maps (some are not downloadable)

THE SCENARIO DEPOT II (TSD2) 
http://63.249.17.36/www.the-scenario-depot.com

The original Scenario Depot (I) was at http://www.dragonlair.net/combatmission/ until it's hosting company crashed with no backups.

It's successor, The Scenario Depot II was at http://www.the-scenario-depot.com/ until the domain wasn't renewed.

It was then "lost" for several years until I contacted the site owner; and got this URL:

http://63.249.17.36/www.the-scenario-depot.com

Site Rip as of 8 May 2021 has:

52 x CMBO Scenarios
587 x CMBB Scenarios
527 x CMAK Scenarios

15 x CMBO Maps (some are not downloadable)
26 x CMBB Maps (some are not downloadable)
36 x CMAK Maps (some are not downloadable)

CMMOS/CMMODS DVD Backup
============================================================
============================================================

This was created from an old DVD that I burned with about 3.7 GB of Combat Mission CMMOS data on or around 2004.

A lot of the information on this was "lost" over the years, and this is my way of giving back to the CM community.

Here is a file list:

Total number of folders = 62
Total number of files  = 1809
Sum of file sizes = 3.5~ GB

It's all within several spanned ZIP files.

On 5-10 May 2021, I cleaned out the following CMx1 repositories:

cmx1mods.greenasjade.net

in an attempt to archive as many of the old Combat Mission 1 (Beyond Overlord/Barbarossa to Berlin/Afrika Korps) mods as possible to safeguard against the probability of greenasjade.net disappearing in the near future.

I downloaded 458 out of 458 files; and their total size is 1.46 GB.

Wow...  That is quite amazing.

I don't play CM1 any more as there are few humans out there playing CM1, and it's easier to play vs the AI and CM2 AI is much superior.

However, I still have all the files.  What I found in my CM1 folders re SCENARIOS & CAMPAIGNS:

CMBO:  1,645 FILES

 

CMBB:   2,164 FILES

...including the ever popular Soviet colloquial file:

стрелять этот tahky = Shoot this tank
элита танкист nyet! = elite tanker not!
русский гроб = russian coffin
демон vodka = demon vodka
фашистский свинья! = fascist swine!
тигр убийца = tiger killer
дерьмо пища собака! = **** eating dog!
рекрут фашистский = dogfaced fascist
отвяжись фашистский свинья! =
****off fascist swine!

 

CMAK:  1,001 FILES

...and dozens of pdf and doc files giving data on all CMBO, CMBB and CMAK guns and tanks.

eg:

 

CMAK ARTY Nov 1944.doc
