    I've seen this multiple times in the last year or so.  Old broken or abandoned games suddenly popping up as something new.  Steam should have pulled Theater Commander after just a few months when it became VERY obvious the dev was in way over his head.

    Yes I agree, and Iam not the only one. Plenty of folks asking the same with games that have long been abandoned. Takedown: Red Sabre was officialy abandoned with a video of the dev saying so and posted in the game forum, It´s still selling since 2014. Just one example among ALOT more.

     

    Then we have games that simply don´t work anymore but they keep selling them.

    I have Age of Wonders Shadow Magic, and I agree with your comments. You might want to have a look at Deity Empires (Master of Magic like)...

    BA2 has a very healthy fan base, and that´s for a reason. I have BA1, someday I´ll pick up BA2. But for now, Iam really saturated with the WWII theme in wargames. Iam more into Cold War and on, unfurtunately there´s not that much in that area worthwhile.

    That's too logical and doesn't apply to Battlefront.

    LOL, ok well one can always dream a bit haha. I never liked there buisness model although it has changed in the past years. As I don´t like Command Ops 2 buisness model either, which is similar to BF.  Panther games was alright but they too left alot of customers out in the cold (me included).

     

    The lipstick is 10 bucks for a engine upgrade with ver minor additions, and for each module!

    His original enquiry was related to using commercial off the shelf (COTS) products to achieve distributed training.

     

    Not so much CMSF2 and other Wargames in a general / entertainment sense..

    No harm in letting him know there´s a thread dedicated to wargames is there?

    Hi all

    I attended an online brief yesterday about how the British Army are using disaggregated training using online simulations. It was quite an eye opener considering I work in that field and was totally unaware of quite a large project called "Fight Club". They are a group of academics, military and gamers who are using whatever sim they deem fit in order to practice the art of wargaming.
    At the moment I have downloaded a demo version of Combat Mission Shock Force 2 (CMSF2) which is one of their Sims of choice. 

    My questions to this community are:

    Are there any others here that are aware or are participants of this group?

    I do believe this is all open source and is gaining quite a momentum.

    Are there any other users of CMFS2 who could give general advice on how it works?

     

    You can find plenty of content in the thread below...

    I've played BCT Commander and Air Assault Task Force Commander.

     

    I love the idea and scope of these games but they are truly crippled by a UI from hell.

     

    Would rather just play SB as an RTS.

     

    I don´t find the UI crippled in the AATF engine, it´s actually quite easy to use.
