Market Garden Free Landing Beta Available Here!

Postby JSS » Sun Feb 24, 2008 3:59 am

Attached is the beta version of my MG Free Landing scenario. It assumes the veteran XVIII (US) Abn Corps was given command of the air drops.

- Allied player selects landing for 1 Abn Div (3 drops... 1 Para Bde has three highly mobile battalions). The turn 6 resupply location for 1st Abn Div is also player selected.

- Polish Bde and 325 Glider Regiment have Allied player directed landings.

- 15 Armee is alerted if Allies cross Nijmegan bridges. The Nijmegan rail bridge also now allows tracked units to cross it (Eindhoven rail bridge does too).

- 50 Div can be alerted near Arnhem bridge or when Eindhoven is taken.

- 155th Bde can arrive on turn 3 (if Deelen airfield is secured on turn 1).

- Allied capture of Nijmegan VP location alerts 43d Division.

- Its possible for 82d (US) Abn Div or 1st (BR) Abn Div to alert 43d Division North of Nijmegan.

Please post feedback here (or send me a PM if you prefer) :)

Enjoy!

JSS

EDIT: I've posted an update which is the proposed release version.

Appreciate your interest :) I should mention that an Allied attempt to land on top of Arnhem (or other occupied areas) will result in significant casualties :twisted:

I put the unzipped MG scenario in the scenario folder. When I try to open it, the program shuts down (CTD)???

If you put it straight into scenarios it will CTD (no scenariopicts.xcr included).

Its a scenario under the standard MG scenario.

Your standard install should be:

...\matrix games\battlefront\scenarios\market garden\MG Free Landing\

Beta v1.01 is posted above now. It corrects a couple of problems and implements the alert scheme as intended.

Great stuff JSS, many thanks for your continued scenario development (although I was half expecting a "monty master of battle" type name :wink:

There's been one minor tweak since the v1.01 beta posted above.

Haven't received any feedback for a bit, so I think release will go forward soon.

Hi Rlowery

This was posted earlier, but for quick reference. You need to create the folder yourself to put all the files into.

If you put it straight into scenarios it will CTD (no scenariopicts.xcr included).

Its a scenario under the standard MG scenario.

Your standard install should be:

...\matrix games\battlefront\scenarios\market garden\MG Free Landing\
