That looks great.

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.

Great work!

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...

Tanx, desert war is a great game! [:)]

When is the patch due out ?




bcgames -> RE: Desert War: Sidi Bou Zid 1943 (9/20/2018 6:19:43 AM)

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.




Firebri -> RE: Desert War: Sidi Bou Zid 1943 (9/20/2018 7:17:55 AM)

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.

Time for me to get the money out then ! [:D]




bcgames -> RE: Desert War: Sidi Bou Zid 1943 (9/20/2018 7:55:31 AM)

Great! Let us know what you think when you've had a chance to play things out.




Firebri -> RE: Desert War: Sidi Bou Zid 1943 (9/24/2018 2:36:33 PM)

Purchased the game last night, now the learning curve starts ![:D]

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

This scenario is now part of Desert War. It was published with the last game patch/update version 1.02. There are actually two versions of this scenario included with the game...the first is the Historical set-up and restrictions; the second is the same scenario with free set-up for both sides. The US player has a slightly better chance of victory in the Free set-up version.

So, if you don't have it--time to hit that update button.

Enjoy!
