oday I watched jive turkey on YouTube play CMO scenario called Chinese Choke Hold...
I would like it… But I suspect it’s a steam workshop scenario and I don’t know how to get it because I only have matrix...
Does anybody know how I can get a hold of this thing or if they have it could they pass it off to me......

I have been truing to solve the same issue.

It was recommended for me to try Steam Downloader but that does not work.

I paste the link from Steam scenario page into the downloader - press download and noting happens.

It would be cool to try some Steam only scenarios in Matrix version of CMO.

Steam users have full access to the Community Scenario Pack. Non-Steam users have zero access to the Steam Workshop scenarios. Have brought this up several times over the years but sadly this scenario access imbalance has been either ignored or poo-poohed away by the CMANO establishment. Don't hold your breath waiting for Steam scenarios unless you join Steam.

What the hell does that even mean...? Its extremely easy to get these scenarios even if you don't want to play the game on Steam.

Anyway, you get a free steam key for your games if you bought them on matrix, just install it on Steam and use the workshop to download all of the scenarios you want. Once you've done that copy and paste those steam workshop scenarios to your non-steam install.

Hopefully the establishment doesn't see this post!

This is one of the perfect examples of why no one should ever develop a game.

It really seems like you feel cheated out of something here, and I can't understand why. Like others have pointed out, owning C:MANO or C:MO means you have a Steam key to use to access the game through Steam, which means you have just as much opportunity to access Steam content as anyone else.

I know from previous posts that you feel really strongly about not using Steam, which is fine. What I really struggle to comprehend, however, is the concept that your refusal to use Steam means that other people should collect the Steam content and deliver it to you. If it was official content I would understand--and I'm sure you've seen that all official content is available on Steam and via Matrix--however, it's not. It's community generated, which means the creator can distribute it in whatever manner they please.

This is analagous to paying for a subscription to watch CNN on cable, while adamantly staying off the internet. No issue there, it's personal preference. What would be bizarre and confusing would be watching CNN on cable, and being annoyed with CNN because you know that there's user generated commentary on their website and no-one is printing it out and bringing it to you.

You are getting what you paid for--and have free access to the extras you want--but the fact that no-one is facilitating your decision to not use a certain service while still wanting access to the content associated with it is somehow irksome?

Perhaps there's something I'm missing, because I really struggle to understand what you're upset about.

Isn't that, well, normal? Subscribing to a Steam scenario triggers a Steam process which downloads the scenario and places it the appropriate subdir in your Steam install dir.

Given Steam's terms and conditions, I can't see how any commercial company could legitimately 'parasite' that process.
