Included in this download:
• The Campaign File – Copy this into the “Campaign” folder of your CMBN directory.
• A ‘z’ folder – Contains compulsory mods that are already mod tagged and ready to go. If you do not copy this folder to your existing mod folder the maps will look really silly!
• Operation Windsor – The Overlooked Battle – A scenario ‘history’ document outlining my final thoughts on the battle and the concessions I had to make in designing this campaign. SPOILER FILLED! The Scenario designer notes if you will. This is a separate document so the in game briefing field can be spoiler free.

• Northern Map covering the village and northern approach.
• Southern Map covering the southern hangers, airfield and eastern control buildings.
• ‘Clean’ and ‘Damaged’ versions of each.

All CMBN modules including the vehicle pack is required.

    I cannot seem to open this documnet, could it be re-posted as a regular zip file or can I get it sent to me directly as an uncompressed file?

    Thanks much

     
    • Mmmm first I heard of that. Do you have 7Zip installed?

      If you still can’t get it to work please PM me on the forums. (Ithikial_AU at BFC, Ithikial at the FGM)

      I use a Mac so I am unsure of the zip version. The file looked odd when it downloaded and I sent it to a pc buddy and he could not open it either. Is there a way you could just send me the file unzipped?

      Thanks
