  1. Great
    wonderful work
    I’m playing the old version and in a hurry to test this one
    historical work is very interesting
    thank you

  2. I’m quite interested in this. Looks like you’ve gone to a huge amount of work here. You mention the following, “This scenario was reworked in CMBN v.4.03 with CW, MG, Special Vehicles and Great Swan…” . I’m fine with everything except the ‘Great Swan’. Can you please tell me what that is and where I can get it?
    Thanks very much!

    1. Hello Canuck21:
      The Great Swan is an add-on scenario pack from Battlefront.com for CMBN. You probably don’t need it to play my scenario. I mentioned it only be cause I do have it installed and just in case the scenario won’t play for you then you know what add-ons I had installed during the creation. Hope you enjoy it. Play Hint: Go slow and steady.

      1. Oh, ok. I recently bought the bundles of all WWII games, including CMFI/GL/R2V. I’m guessing Great Swan should be included in that, but I’m not sure. I’ll have to go have a look. Thanks very much for this and your work. Much appreciated 🙂 .

  3. I noticed that you’ve been cranking out the scenarios at quiet a pace as well. If you need/want someone to play test of of your creations with you any time, I’d be happy to obligue.

    So as a bush pilot, ever fly out of Sault Ste. Marie or Sioux Lookout? I lived in the Sault and had occasion to fly (as a passenger) with a family friend who back in the old days, used to fly the old yellow bush planes for ‘lands and forests’. They were stationed at the St. Mary’s River.

    1. Yeah, I’ve basically been learning how to do all this, which started very recently, and figured I’d release the scenarios rather than simply horde them away on my HD 🙂 . I’m not sure how good they are really. I take a bit of a different approach. I tend to like to simulate what things would have been like back then, rather than just go for the action part. For example, in the latest one (Dives River Bridge), the Canadian Parachute Company drops a bit far from the objective, so it takes them a bit of time to assemble and head for where they are supposed to be. This really happened – a lot, so that’s simulated. It was supposed to be an H2H as well as Canucks vs AI, but as one very knowledgeable person pointed out, what German player is going to want to just sit there wondering what’s going on for the first 5 to 10 minutes of the game . He’s quite right, so I switched it to player vs. AI only.

      Having someone test these would be amazing. I’ve had a hard time with that part to be honest. I’d love to send you stuff as it comes out. That said, I will be slowing them down a bit. One thing I’m not doing, and really need to do if I’m going to produce decent work at all is actually play more scenarios. I’ve been away from the games for a while and I need to get back to actually playing some of this so I understand better how things work in the end product. Nevertheless, I’d love to take you up on this.

      I was going to fly out of Sioux Lookout but that job fell through for various reasons. I did fly out of Batchewana Bay for the moose season one year, but mostly I was in Agnew Lake (C185), White River (Beavers), Jellicoe (180, 185, Otter) and Great Bear Lake (185, Beaver). I do remember seeing the MNR Beavers at the Sault of course. I wanted to get on with them but things conspired to prevent that unfortunately.

      Meant to tell you I really appreciated your comments above re Lest We Forget. That was very nice of you. I’m actually living in Fergus so we aren’t that far apart as it turns out. There’s another very nice fellow from down your way I know through Battlefront (I’ve never met him personally but he’s been a huge help to me in getting on with designing these scenarios), by the by.

      Now, I’m new on this site, so I don’t know if they have a PM system here and I don’t really want to leave my email address out in the open here. Is there a way we can connect up somehow outside of the forum? Many thanks for your comments, offer and your scenarios 😉 . I’ve downloaded them all and am looking forward to them greatly!
