matrix should re-release these
« on: July 17, 2021, 11:19:12 PM »


Command Ops: Battles from the Bulge and many other now that new tech is available to run them, I installed it on win10 but did not do the C++ libruaries or Directx or .Net as win10 has everything , it was just a straight install.

then I found it has a desktop res option,, so I fired it up, . all these old games that now run on win 10 should be investigated by matrix

Ride of the Valkyries covers Hitler’s last offensive in what became known as the 1944 Battle of the Bulge. It focuses on the northern shoulder. As Obersturmbannfuhrer Peiper can you race your elite 1st SS panzer group and force a crossing of the Meuse river and turn the tide in the West. Or as General Ridgeway can you take charge and shore up the crumbling defenses with your XVIII Airborne Corps and use the reinforcing 3rd Armoured Division to drive back the German forces. It contains 12 scenarios.

I've experienced rendering issues with Command Ops as well. It worked fine on my PC but has serious issues with the font on my laptop.

I was quite surprised when I bought Command Ops 2 and found it had the exact same issue. I made a bug report for both versions. There was some feedback, but never any resolution to the problem AFAIK.

Was the "Bradley at Bay" DLC ever released?  It shows up on the "Lock n Load" page, but not on Steam. See https://store.lnlpublishing.com/command-ops-2-vol-8-bradley-at-bay-llp314401-win and https://store.steampowered.com/app/590810/Command_Ops_2_Bradley_at_Bay_Vol_8/

Don't believe it has been released per comments in various forums, must have been a mistake on their store page.

I just wish they didn't rely on random icons in the UI so much.

I was involved with the attempt at fixing the laptop text-scaling problem long ago, when ComOps2 was first released. I helped figure out how to do a workaround on non-laptops, until the coding could be fixed, but the laptop thing was more difficult. I kinnnnnd of remember being able to fix it eventually, but I'm not where I can check right now.

Awesome, thanks very much for those links! They've got the Market Garden and Greece scenarios, too.

That's my kind of wargame there. Let the AI handle the frickin' details. I wish an old game like that could be a little cheaper, but why should it be? In my humble but invariably correct opinion, nobody else to this day has done what they did as well as they did it.
