37mm Posted April 26, 2004 Share Posted April 26, 2004 Hi I’ve been playing CM for a few months now & have found it to be addictive to a quite worrying degree & ithink I can safely say that I don’t think I’ll ever play steel panthers again! I have been browsing through the comments in this forum for a few weeks now & after playing quite a few scenarios from the depot I have been making my own selection. Several will fall into the ‘fun’ category; many scenarios’s following the actions of Henry Matelsson a soldier of the 22nd panzer who wrote a book called “through hell for Hitler”. Other will be ‘realistic’ & be more of the ‘long periods of boredom & then a rush of action’ variety; they will try to show the attritional nature of practically any military operation. As such they require very long time limits so players are not under unrealistic time constraints. I have encountered however a few problems the CM manual says that 120 turn battles are possible however I can only get 60. I will admit that this is not too much of a problem, as I’ve set up the scenarios as operations instead. The other problem concerns briefings after I have loaded the three word files when I then go to open my scenario all I get is ‘gobbledegook’. Do the briefings have to be in a certain format? 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
