I have al the ww2 ones except the eastern front

they were mediocre but released a big AI upgrade last year that made them great. The detail and accuracy on the tanks weapons and uniforms all historically accurate amazes me

I've been playing for many years and have most of the titles, though not all. I missed this thread a month ago and just saw it now. I agree the games are good, though with issues that don't need to be rehashed here.

Are you talking about the engine 4 upgrade? If so I think calling it a big AI upgrade is a bit much, and in my opinion it barely moved the needle, let alone made a mediocre game in to a great one. AI is one of Combat Mission's biggest weaknesses in my view. The TacAI works OK, but things are mostly handled through scripting.

The main points of the engine 4 upgrade are:

-- Added hulldown command
-- Improved infantry spacing
-- Added ability to peek around corners (which really wasn't needed and introduced other problems, particularly with pathing)
-- F/O kill stats now displayed
-- Added screen edge pan toggle
-- AI Area Fire Orders (The AI can now be scripted to use area fire)
-- Added AI facing order
-- Added AI withdrawal order.

So really, the extent of the 'big AI upgrade' was making troops spread out more and adding a couple of new orders in the UI
