I've been playing EF since 1995.
It's my favorite grand tactical WWII game of all time.

This is awesome.

Let us know when it'll be available to the general public.

What does CS/DG mean? Looks like a cross between west/east front and panzer general. I like it! Will it be released soon? I watched the links to youtube and it is very nice.

Demo CS meets PG3D ready to play !


Install CS meets PG3D:

1. Install a new original West Front version 1.05 complete game.
2. unload the spezial-file and all bit-files.
3. overwrite the new installation with the mod-files CS meets PG3D 1 (Graphik) + 2/3 (Sound).


Start playing:

1. use 16 bit and 800x600 screen in desktop !!! (Gives you a more realistic Panzer-General II (PG3D)-athmosphäre !
2. Start the 7 days - Campaign "1st german tankdivision" 1940 (Fall Gelb)
3. Fight for victory and have fun with this demo of CS meets PG3D.
4. You can see only the sommer-NW-Europe-graphik in 1 (Fight-view), 3 and 5 (tactical view).
5. You can play only 70 rounds in this 7 days. Good luck and give me critics !!!
6. The full 1st tank div. campaign, all my other campaigns and the great multiplayer-global-scenarios comes in a standalone version by matrixgames in the future - I hope !!!

I guess I'm just not comprehending this at all. All along I thought that MATRIXGAMES was producing a new package which will include West Front. But now this thread says to install West Front v1.03. Does that mean I need to buy West Front v1.03 to play this mod? Or do we wait for the MATRIXGAMES version to be released?

The above is for a modification based on the old Campaign Series, hence the requirement for West Front 1.03. I am not even sure where you can find that patch anymore, maybe he has it on his site available for download.

The Matrix version of the Campaign Series will include the latest from West Front (1.05), East Front(1.03) and Rising Sun. The above modification will not be included in the initial release but could be added at a later date.

Take care and good luck

Thank you very much. I appreciate the clarification.
I use to have all of the series, West and East Front and Rising SUn. I think I threw them away figuring they would never run on new computer systems.

Just come across this (did any of this ever get done?):

"UPCOMING IMPROVMENTS (planned for 1.06):


Continued improvements/enhancements to campaign game and A/I.
Dynamic updating of LOS during a unit's movement.VERSION 1.04 12/97

Added Opportunity Fire Dialog to allow players to set range limits for Op Fire. To view this dialog, select the "Assign Opportunity Fire" menu item in the Units Menu. Click on the Help button in the dialog for an explanation of how to use it.Added "D" hotkey to display Op Fire Dialog.

Fixed Info Box helmet problem.
Added ability to plot indirect fire on friendly position.
Hard targets are identified by their Defense value being printed in *red* in the Infobox.

Added Unit Data (F4) and Weapon Data (F5) entries in the Help Menu. Units can now load onto vehicles when their hex is overstacked. Unknown units now become spotted when an enemy combat unit moves adjacent to them.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------




Fixed bug that caused false "reachable hexes" display when the map was rotated.
Fixed LOS bug in snow scenarios caused by "phantom" marsh hexes.

Improved unit placement in campaign games.
Fixed bug that sometimes caused false report of "no lower level units" during selection of core organization in campaign games.

Fixed bug that caused Pz 38(t)s to show up in the German player's core tank organizations too often in 1941 campaign games.
Fixed bug that sometimes caused platoons/companies to disappear from the player's initial core organization.

Fixed inconsistency in listing of core organization unit ID numbers.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Fixed graphic for 3d Extreme Zoom-Out Blocked-LOS icon.

Pressing the F4/F5 keys calls up additional data (not supplied elsewhere) on all the units in the game. F4 shows miscellaneous information; F5 lists the units nominal attack strength at various ranges.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



The Menu Bar is 'on' by default if it was 'on' when the game was last exited.
Fixed incorrect firing sound when leader is stacked with firer.

Ski units now ski (instead of run) when they move.
Worked on various aspects of the campaign games: setup, A/I, reinforcements, replacements, mission generation, upgrades, etc.Revised the tutorial document.

Fixed Visible Hex FOW info leak.Fixed rotated-map airplane graphics bug.
Fixed rotated-map firing animation bug.

Fixed bug that sometimes allowed Fields to show up under No-Field conditions.
Fixed bug that sometimes prevented units from being resupplied.

Fixed bug that caused premature loss of Fatigue.
Fixed bug that caused premature recovery from Disruption when stacked with a commander.Fixed 3D Zoom-Out smoke graphics bug.

I have version 1.05 of the game and every time I access the artillery dialog in certain scenarios the game crashes?

Hallo Karl
Possibility 1
Install a new file (called CS meets PG3D) from your original west front CD v.1.05.
Follow the install guidance.

Possibility 2
or copy all your WF installation-files with an other name (called CS meets PG3D)
Follow the install guidance.

Hallo Dali
In these scenarios are many many months long work (50hours for every scenario). I would not like to offer you free of charge for the downloading. Perhaps they are offered shortly over matrixgames.

I unloaded the files and tried the beginning of you demo campaign.  
You graphics 3 D normal vew are nices but it seems don't show unit bases and  On map thermometers that are important for the game, that 3D zoom out seems me equal to the original one. 
I have very appreciated the indication in you varied unities of reparts of affiliation, on the contrary I don't understand the purpose of the new system of visualization of the Unit Handbook showing only  the numbers without any explanation of their meaning, moreovers  lack of the unitext prevents me from understanding number of mens, veicols, guns and so on componing the unity. 
They still represent platoons as in the original game or battalions as I read previusly? 
Best regards
Karl Berg

There each unit places batallion.
The 0 applies to infantry Batallion and means with (e.g.) strength 50 = 500 men, otherwise vehicles or equipment are meant.
Unitbases you can see only in view 3. The best overview is view 5 with all division-symbols.
The black regiment flag with some units in the info. box symbolizes in each case regiment headquarters (only when additional activation at the beginning of the play)
Each regiment has 1940 a supplying range of 4 km, the division 8km, naturally additive of the general, if it stands thereby. The corps supplies 16 km.

This mod looks very interesting, with a great deal of work involved. Are the graphics all original or did they come from another game? If they came from something else has the design team secured the legal right to use them in a commercial product?

Hallo Ladmo
The terrain diagram is by the handpainted maps inspired by Panzer-General II (called in Europe PG3D), naturally converted with own techniques. The overview-graphik (5)inspired a little bit by Panzer-General I.The unit pictures are from me and from PAT (a PG3D fan and modder, he lives in Beirut).

Some maps are inspired of the HPS series, them had however by me still substantially in the historical and cartographic accuracy to be improved. In addition map details were represented substantially more affectionately during very complex processes

Nice work. Hopefully you continue the work when Matrix releases their version. The old games run a bit shakey for me now.
