Title: Hello folks
Post by: The Wargaming Scribe on June 09, 2021, 05:45:26 AM
Hello there !

New member, I came by some coincidence. I am blogging the computer wargames from oldest to newest (a bit like the CRPGAddict is doing, if you know him) I was looking for the manual for SSI's Napoleon's Campaign (1981). While doing so, I found a thread in here where someone tried to list ALL the Napoleonic computer games, and what do you know, it was missing the very first Napoleonic game : SSI's 1980 Computer Napoleonics - a situation I had to correct.

But to do this, I had to register, and here I am. Since I am there, if any of you has the manual of Operation Apocalypse (SSI, 1981 by Keating) or good quality ones of Torpedo Fire / Southern Command / Napoleon's Campaign, I am a taker.

By the way, you may know me for my bunch of tutorial / AAR on the AGEOD games under the name of Narwhal.

Welcome to the Grogs Wargaming Scribe. Great to have a SSI fan amongst us. Kampgruppe was my very first computer game back in the C-64 days.  :dreamer:

Same here. I paid $45 for it back in 1987. A rich sum back then. Ran it on my C-128. Fun game. Except for the fact that it did not support a mouse, and used bleeps and blips for sound, I bet Kampfgruppe could hold its own today.

I can't remember what I paid for Kampgruppe back in the day. But I remember waiting FOR--EVER for it to come in the mail.  :pullhair:

Well, actually my first game was Ancient Art of War, so I am more of a Broderbund guy :). I only started to play the old SSI recently.

Since you guys are really into SSI, any chance one of you has the Operation Apocalypse manual ?

By the way , the blog => https://zeitgame.net

Not me Scribe. I sold all my old Amiga games several years back including the SSI games. I always wanted to play AAoW but that was before I could afford a computer to play it on.  :-[
