continue?

Just tried playing this and don't understand the different mazes. I finished one and went to #2 but didn't feel like playing right away. I tried quitting and aborting and could not find a way to continue with #2 it always went back to #1. So how do you keep going without spending hours playing at a ...

Suggestion

It would be nice if when there is a battle involving the player's units there was a small delay maybe .5 - 1 second while the battle was going on along with a visual representation of the battle like maybe a small star halfway between the two squares involved.

I've been playing Combat Mission since it came out about four years ago. Excellent game but a whole different feel from Firefight. I wouldn't like Ff in turn base. To me, this is almost the perfect squad based game. Years ago I played Close Combat 3 for a while and thought what a neat game it would ...

When doing defense try setting up fields of fire on two sides, defilade, and killing zones. Try setting up your units in woods/towns and steering the attackers to open fields where you can hit them with artillery.

heh heh. ok. Anyway, I've only played one scenario so far. I came to this site looking at moab, really liked firefight (except for the zoom), but became hooked on slay. I'm going to start playing more cm in the next few days. The role playing elements interest me less than the tactical playing. It's...

OK, I see what you mean. But you should still be able to copy the files and then copy them back. Have you tried this? Copy the save (.gam) and rollofhonor file to a floppy and then remove the disk. Then a couple games later remove those two files from your Critical Mass directory and copy them from ...

Interesting. My version is 4.0a. It came in the package I purchased last weekend. I started a game, saved it, and found the save game file in the Critical Mass directory. Then I copied all the files to a new directory, made a shortcut of the exe file and put it on the desktop, double clicked that sh...

Again, you can save your save game. All you need to do is copy your .gam file to another folder. Then to restore, copy it back. Also, you can have two copies of the game at the same time. Simply make a folder, like Critical Mass 2, and copy all the game files there. No problem.

That's ok. No need to reply. I figured out I can go to the ship page and get this info.

A workaround is to copy your save game file to another folder before every mission. There can be a fine line between realistic and fun.

Well, the real solution is for me to get a new computer with a bigger monitor.

Btw, that link went to a Firefight 3.0. The version 3.0a came with the bundle so I don't see how this is an improvement. Also, it needed a password and I don't have one.

I just tried the General and think I'd rather Slay and Conquest stay the way they are. However, I just tried Critical Mass and the graphics and zoom are nice. Is there any reason that system can't be implemented in Firefight? Also, I've emailed and posted with my email address to get the link to the...

Graphics question

The ship's component graphics in the game are different than the help manual and it's difficult to tell what's what. Is there a more up to date graphics listing?

The mission type I'd like to see is meeting engagement. Random map with a flag in the middle and lined up on the opposite sides of the map.

Castles?

How do castles work? Are they more powerful than any men? If so, how do you destroy an enemy castle since they cost nothing per turn?
