So no AARs for a couple weeks. You guys abandon this eh? Is it broken or did you just quit?

I've been waiting for moves from Don. I don't know what he's working on right now but I think he's got more than one opponent. I've been tweaking the scenario and I've got a 7.14.2019 version that I'm playtesting. You can have a copy of it if you'd like. I'll edit this post and attach it.

EDIT: Okay, it's attached.

I remember when I was a young boy, like 60 years ago now, an old all-black B-26, a wreck, empty of anything valuable, that the neighborhood kids and I would climb around inside and pretend we were on a mission etc. It was parked off to the side at Freeway airport on the SW surburbs of Tucson, AZ. The airport is an industrial park now. Anyway, one adult guy was walking by and saw us kids playing in it and he climbed into the pilots seat, on the left, and he said to us, "wow, there's not much visibility is there?". We agreed. I have no idea what happened to that plane but I think somebody must have bought it and parked it in the south field for shade for his cows.

Thanks Larry. My back is acting up so I can't sit at the computer for long but I'll look at it when I get a chance. Too bad I can't run TOAW on my tablet.

I love the old medium bombers and twin engine ground support stuff. Sad when one like you talk about doesn't get rebuilt. I go to the Offutt AFB airshow when they have it. It's not every year but fairly often. When I worked my place of employment was right under the runway flight path so we got to see lots of stuff even without the airshow. When everyone was wondering where the Prez was during 9/11 we knew. We saw Air Force One fly over when landing at Offutt with fighter escort.

Rebuilding your PC and recovering files takes longer than I thought.

Sorry for the delays.

Don't hurt yourself. Playing when it's not fun has a tendency to burn you out on playing the game.

sigh...it's still not right! I get it start up and then it freezes, how easy I thought this was going to be is turning into a bigger headache. If it won't start up properly I'll make another VM and try again...

Have you tried running in compatability mode as if it were WIN8? That's what I'm doing and it seems to be working fine.

Larry that is not the issue, I have corrupted Virtual Machines. I don't have the luxury to install on a real computer at the moment, so I do my 'stuff' on Virtual Machines.

One of the drawbacks is when they go sour they go sour...

How in the world can you corrupt a VM?

That’s a good question it has to me three to four times in the last 10 years, I was able to recover the VM just tonight I think. It could be a combo of the h/w and the vm getting corrupt.

Does your back feel any better at all? Have you tried Dones pills or some other kind of muscle relaxer? Got any medical marijuana on hand? I've had trouble with my lower back as well so I fully understand back trouble. I've found that laying on the floor with my legs on the couch seems to help. If my back trouble comes back I've got a 5-year old bottle of Black Label in my refrigerator.

Sciatica. When at it's worst I can barely even walk. Falling on ice didn't help it. Not as light on me feet as I used to be.

I'm sorry to hear about your sciatica lobster dude. I guess the cure for it would be surgery?

I'll deal with the pain. Back surgery scares me to death. My brother-in-law had back surgery. He's in more pain than before they did it. I'm a big boy and can deal with it.

New moves from Don. Here's the T2 front lines so far. I think I might be on schedule but those broken bridges near Daugavpils are golng to put me behind at least a full day. I'll have to call up the ferry engineers to get the troops across the river at points between the crossings and regular engineers at the crossings to repair the broken bridges and repair the rails. I'm usually playing against the PO in this scenario and I'm starting to notice that it's different playing a real human. The enemy moves make more sense for one thing. Down south the Rumanians don't become active until T4 but the Soviets are active in T2 so they will have a really good head start on escaping destruction. And Don will have plenty of bridges to break to slow me down.

In this scenario at the start I love breaking bridges and causing Larry as much grief as possible...lol

Once the dust settles a bit, I may do this with Larry as me with the Germans and push east.

:-D

Hey Don, I've got a newer version of this scenario and I'd love to play the Soviet side so we can start a new game with you as Axis right now if you'd like.

EDIT: I've attached the newest version here below (B41_lgf_7.14.2019.zip) for anyone who wants it.

We've started a new game with Don as the Axis and me as the Soviets and we're going to
use B41_lgf_7.20.2019.sce because I've made some changes to the units to include more
equipment for the Axis side.
