I would also want to add that as a new player the game is quite difficult to get into. There are 3 tutorial missions, and I know some scenario's are more manageable than others, but something that would help to get into the game would be a string of scenarios or a campaign if you will that teaches the gameplay and that adds context to the individual scenarios. That might also help attract new players for who the learning curve might be to steep otherwise.


Look, I'm dancing as fast as I can, okay?

Anyone know how to get a copy of this? I'm guessing it is out of print. Is there a .pdf available? (I actually have the Ultimate Edition Harpoon DVD...any chance it is buried in there somewhere with all the other goodies?)

Its not on the DVD. I tried to get some numbers etc and Larry was helpful but it just got to be a chore that was no longer worth pursuing. I will however say, if the H2 Guide is being done in PDF then I am sure this one could also but I am not sure about copyright etc.


The best way in my humble opinion is to look on eBay for a Challenger pack edition of Harpoon, it comes with it. I won mine on Bids though....




I tried to get every version before Ultimate edition came out.

Well I'm not sure about copyright etc. either... I'm scanning it to convert into an ebook to take with me on holiday this Summer. Plus, I doubt anyone will have the patience to wait for and download every page I scan.

I am not worried about it, it is LONG out of print, and will never be reprinted.

Any chance the Battlebook as well as the Harpoon 2 Official Strategy Guide gets virtual?

I own the Harpoon Ultimate Edition. Lot's of manuals and I don't have a clue if the "Battlebook" and/or "Harpoon 2 Official Guide" is in them or not.
I tried looking for these two but no chance. Google is full of fake-gargabe-sites.

mikkey,

Thanks. Started with the release of the original Harpoon I (DOS based v1.0) back in 1989. Actually have a Windows 95/MS DOS 6.22 system, with 5.25" floppy drive, that it still plays on. I kept getting the updates and spinoffs after that. Hadn't heard about any new Harpoon stuff for a while so I went searching online about 2013 and that's when I discovered CMANO which turned out to be a superb, far more advanced, successor. I can't begin to compute the number of hours I've played both simulations!

There seems to be a lot of attention given here to how naval strategy and tactics would/should work within CMANO.

As I recall the H4 strategy manual it was mainly about naval strategy, not as it applied directly within H4.

If anyone is looking for a general naval tactics guide then "Fleet Tactics - theory and practice" by Capt Wayne P Hughes is an excellent text and a good introduction. It's available from the US Naval Institute bookshop, and probably elsewhere as well (e.g. Amazon).

To relate that theory to the practical aspects of the game, then I agree the devs and an experienced ex- (or current) naval practitioner might collaborate on such a guide. We would need to bear in mind however that CMANO covers a large time frame, and tactics will vary over that time with weapons and sensors development.

This is a lovely collection! Probably you could start collecting boardgame items as well

britten,

Not a bad idea but, sadly, I never really had an opportunity to get into the military boardgame world. I did have a fair amount of D&D "table top" gaming and greatly enjoyed that. Also, there is the matter of space! Already have two walls of shelves with gaming software!

The OP is asking how many people are potentially still interested in having a complete book scanned. If somebody still wants that, can you indicate this here?

I'm interested and TheCabal as well. Anyone else?

I think the real issue is people not taking advantage of what is already available. There are great official and community resources available. They are not prominently displayed on the forum, but even a little searching will get most of what you want. This game is not one you can stroll into and have everything handed to you.



This is spot on accurate ! I stay mostly on the Steam Forums for CMANO because of this reason. When a new player does post, it is almost always something that can be easily found , but people are either unwilling, or unaware of the tools and info available to them . A fast search reveals almost all of them , yet people seem adverse to the idea for some reason, when usually its far easier, faster, and less typing to do so.

I actually created a Steam Guide (Really is just a short URL list ) with embedded links to This site , Baloogans Half Life , and Nimrodx guide links , The manual ,FAQ , Addendum etc....for easily finding these resources and getting them used to the ideas of using them. If players spend all the time they have posting their questions they would never have any to play, much less those that answer them as well .

So far it seems to be working pretty well as most of the time any follow up questions are often something thats very in-depth and complex requiring a much more detailed answer and actual game play knowledge.

It seems we're stuck on page 180 for now. If anyone cares about for the rest of this book he probably should contact (and motivate) OP by the email assigned to his forum account.
