Are there any scenarios to go with this mod?

I have been using it to go with custom scenarios set in France in 1940, though I'm not sure which of them were specifically meant to go with this mod.

Above file has been rehosted in the CMAK Mod Archive on the Internet Archive.

Good to know, I don't exactly have a lot of space in my dropbox.

Can you provide a download link for those scenarios?  I would really appreciate it!

TAKE MY WESTERN FRONT MOD DOWN IMMEDIATELY!!! I was not approached for permission to re-upload this mod. Although I am no longer actively modding any one of you could have contacted me via details provided within the mod. I do NOT and CANNOT give full permission because of the following:

1) Although there is a lot of my efforts therein, there was a lot of other stuff too, for which only some of it did I have full permissions. For the rest it was either limited permissions along with some pending (i.e. unknown or uncertain authorships/permissions/copyrights of which I asked for feedback).

2) After taking the mod off-line for other reasons, I was later made aware of two potential copyright issues and one modder who explicitly would not have given permission. These matters died because I'd already taken the mod offline - and promised not to re-publish it.

3) You have now re-uploaded the mod and with my details and thus exposed me to all and sundry, and made me a potential target of complaints and potential copyright action.

I have had to flag Battlefront, and initiate tortuous correspondences with DropBox and the Internet Archive to try to minimise potential blow-back.

I have removed it from my dropbox, so the link will no longer work. There's no reason to shout or use so many exclamation points, I am perfectly willing to comply. All you are accomplishing by shouting is to create a hostile interaction.

There is a need for a CMAK Western Front mod, and I haven't been able to find any others out there (some textures for late war, but none for early war). So if you aren't comfortable with other people sharing it then you might consider uploading it yourself. Since it's a mod and not a commercial product (no one can sell it or make any money on it) I seriously doubt you have to worry about copyright.

The file has been removed from the CMAK Mod archive for now.

As Centurian has pointed out, all you are doing is creating a hostile environment for interaction.

I'm trying to understand how copyright action can be undertaken wrt a niche graphics mod made back in 2012 for a niche wargame that was released in 2003.

The only thing you're accomplishing with your rant is denying future players the ability to utilize your work (and that of others).

I'll tell you a story. A few years back in April to Mid-May 2016, I got a six pack of soda and sat down at every online scenario archive for The Operational Art of War:

GameSquad Depot (1 download/minute limit)
Rugged Defense (10 downloads/hour limit)
http://www.dizium.net/TOAW
Old Games Depot Archive (Wargamer) archived at the internet archive
Old "No Panzers Please" Archived Website at Internet Archive

It took quite a while because of those stupid time limits.

One of the things I snagged was the TOAW Legacy Project -- which was 415 scenarios converted to TOAW3 format and stored on Game Squad File Depot in 42 separate files.

Guess what?

Since then:

Game Squad has saw their entire file section nuked (everything that was there is gone)
Rugged Defense has gone bye bye.

If I hadn't done the site rips back in 2016; the TOAW community would be SOL for playing those old scenarios.
