I'm thinking the Sidi Bou Zid scenario (and the supporting "Americans" graphics files) should be included as a bonus package in the next Desert War patch. Just need to script the AI. Can do easy. Thanks for your support of this project.

This is a scenario now reaching ten years-ish(?) trying to find an opportunity to publish. It all started with a game/educational tool demo for the US Army ROTC leadership training program. Read about it here:

http://www.decisive-point.com/history/firstbattles.html

The demo was not accepted as an educational way forward. So the historical research and game development sat dormant--close to dead. Then Brian Kelly's Desert War came along. Sidi Bou Zid 1943 found a potential path to publication. Then it got scoped out with Desert War's time brackets of 1940-1942. So...lot's of years later, a couple of .csv file conversions, and a ton of Desert War adjustments, the Sidi Bou Zid scenario will soon be back in business.

Coming soon in a patch near you...

Brian and I tested the Matrix patch package last Monday and everything looked up to snuff. So I'll register my guess that it'll be out after all the pillows are fluffed-up and placed with a chocolate.

Many thanks for that bcgames.

One other question, as I have not purchased the game yet, but will be soon I think

The work in progress picture above shows more terrain features, than I have seen in other pictures.

Are they part of the patch too ?

All terrain features used in the Sidi Bou Zid scenario come from Desert War...there is nothing new in the terrain department.

Purchased the game last night, now the learning curve starts !

One good feature, the printer friendly manual does what is says. Printer inks are a shocking price in the UK.
