Altruistic perhaps, but not going to pave the way for the next step, whatever shape that takes. On a personal level I like the Battlefront guys, and love their simulator. But it's falling behind in my view and I want to see it leap forward. Onward CMx3! Or is it 5? Who cares? To the next engine!

From what little I've played, it's like a classic reborn. I feel I have a lot more command and response options that keep my pixeltruppen alive longer than the original. The original was very unforgiving.

I've been checking the BFC boards each day and am surprised at the lack of threads/posts/discussion about this game. With it just released you might expect a flood of comments, at least at the start. Curious that it's not generating much discussion, or at least a 'first impressions' sort of thing. But maybe that's natural since it's more or less SF1, but betta!

What's next on the Battlefront agenda? Have they announced their next venture? I'd suggest they start by not just improving, but coming up with a completely new store, download and upgrade process.

There is so much that they could do. If they are going to do more 'makeovers' I'd love to see CMBB 2, with the operations feature retained. I need me some 1941 East Front Combat Mission!

Fulda gap has been getting a lot of requests from the mass over at BF.com, That would be my favorite next in the modern era.

I could get in to that. But Battlefront doesn't do all-encompassing games anymore so that could be Fulda gap in the '60s or the 80's or anywhere in between, meaning a big window for units involved.

Though my preference is for a Barbarossa CMx2 game, there are plenty of alternatives I would find appealing. Just at least 30 years ago....

An expansion to the Italy theatre is next (Rome to Victory)... it's being worked on now.
Also the long awaited patches for the engine 4 updates for all five CM titles... that will be followed by another expansion for the Russian Front... Red Thunder.

Thanks Troop!

I really enjoy Red Thunder, just something about east front combat that appeals. An expansion would be welcome. I hope it comes with twenty campaigns!

Apparently the Russian one will take them to the end of the war... there was some talk at some stage about Operation Barbarossa in the future, which would be much more appealing to me.

Yeah, I saw a post over there that they will eventually do the entire east front, in four expansions, with 1941 being the last of the four.

I also have my suspicions that they are working on a desert WW2 family... probably starting with the Tunisia campaign.

Great movies Sir37mm. The sounds (i believe it's "waclaw's sound mod") are outstanding.

Today i got my copy of SF2 with Marines and NATO modules. Fortunately i was able to purchase upgrades, thanks to BFC customer support. I wrote a ticket yesterday saying that i have a boxed copy of CMSF which was sold by Paradox many years ago. But these copies had no license key so i could not prove i actually purchased CMSF.

But i also wrote that i bought two modules directly from BFC store, i wrote all the details of these orders and today BFC mailed me a new CMSF license saying that since i bought two modules i must have had the base game so it's good enough for them. Really cool i must say. thumbsup
