CMBO/CMBB Anthology of useful posts redux

Recommended Posts

Sorry everyone but my origonal post contained lots of errors creating the links in forum speak. Corrected below:

It seems I cannot post a reply to the original thread CMBO/CMBB Anthology of useful posts! so I'll post my update in a new one. I just discovered this game and found the above thread. I sure looked like a wonderful collection of useful stuff but none of the links worked. It seems some forum maintenance meant the links no longer work. I searched and found what I feel are probably most of the articles. A few I could not find and some seemed to have more then one relevant thread.

You do know that CM:BN will be coming out before too long, don't you? Maybe you can start a new thread of this type in that forum when the proper time arrives....

Yes, I know that's how I found out about the older games. Do you think the advice from the CMBO, CMBB and CMAK games will apply to the new game?

There is a time limit. After that has expired, you can no longer edit your own posts....

Is it possible for an admin to manually truncate the original post so this thread does not start off with incorrectly formatted links? I have fixed them in a follow on post.

In some cases. Broad tactical principles will still apply as the older games were for the most part true to them. Certain game-specific quirks will be different though and only time will tell just what those are. Reading the DARs of Elvis and JonS you might notice some differences.

I believe so. You might send a PM to Moon, the forum admin with an explanation and request. Some of the original post might have to remain as a place holder though. But the incorrect links can be deleted.
