Well I have finally taken the plunge. I stopped gaming some 15+ years ago for various reasons, recently I purchased a new Alienware laptop and have been following this project with interest. I just got it downloaded and will install it over the weekend.

I am expecting to have much confusion since so much has changed in games from my old days of DOS and early windows programs, yep it has been that long.

So in advance please forgive any seriously stupid questions and I do hope some kind soul creates some of the old SL and ASL board game scenarios, I cannot remember how many times I have fought out the first Stalingrad battle.

Mike

I'm an old gamer too, Mike, and I'm also a Mike! But, I've been gaming consistently throughout, starting with board wargames back in the early to mid seventies and then moving on to the very early computer games back in the late seventies. Like you, I have played those early SL scenarios so many times (introducing new players to the game, or just trying to reacquaint myself with it) and it would be great if someone could recreate them in Tigers. If I had more time I might go up in the loft, get my old SL stuff down and give it a go myself, but sadly...


Best Wishes

Mike

Funny how the recordings that actually get posted are wins....
Especially after hearing how the 4 halftracks decimated his bazooka teams merely 1 game before the video cameras turned on to test the Terrain MOD...
Hmmmmm....



In all seriousness your videos were excellent and most appreciated!

Sssshhhhh... that was a secrete. It was a fluke that the Germans totaly took out like 3 units and a leader in one barrage.

I was going to mention that but.. er.. I'm... I forgot about that one.

Must be a "Bug" that we need to tell Peter about!
