We started off with showing what I've been doing and asking for some feedback on some of those projects. Your feedback would be appreciated! After that we continued our advance into Hue with our poor ARVN parachutists. We are fighting block by block, winning some and losing some. It's still a hell of a lot of fun though! We have some US Marines arriving by helicopter, which I reminded views on the best practice for unsupported helicopter assaults.

Hahah, indeed! 

Yes, likely the end of June for the official release and mid-June for the public Beta of the UPDATE.

We went over the latest and greatest goodies that I've been working on and showing off the latest Cold War Silhouettes. Then I asked if the viewers wanted to see Vietnam or Omaha Beach, which D-Day won the vote and we continued on with the adventure on the beaches of France. We are making slow and steady progress, but the losses. The horror, the horror.

 Lindsay and I fired up a Play by Email game. We ended up playing an Indochina scenario, I played as the French, it was a decent little fight in a small area along the Song Day River at Yen Phuc. It was one of Lindsay's first PBEM games, so he had some hard lessons to learn. I was surprised about the opportunity fire that I kept running into though. What a mess. These little scenarios are a lot of fun with some valuable lessons to be learned!

NOTE: Based on the YouTube community poll, majority ruled to have the PBEM games loaded all as one. 

NOTE 2: This video is in lieu of the Wednesday stream that should be happening today, but I have to miss it due to the a work engagement.

"... end of June for the official release..." of? Campaigns finally implemented?

Jason Petho

Not yet for the Campaigns, although there are two A WEEK IN Campaign scenarios in the game, I highly recommend playing.

The BETA UPDATE should be released next week or the week after, and then after a couple weeks it will be officially released.

Happy Fathers Day!  We went the manual changes and another new item that will be included in the CSVN 1.31 and CSME 2.31 UPDATES and then dived back into to Omaha Beach. The rocket bombardments from the Germans are the worst and definitely where I am taking the most casualties. On the bright side, we're making excellent, but bloody, progress in three sections of the beach. We have even crested the ridge line in a couple spots! Exciting times for the Americans!

We went over what's included in the pending CSVN 1.31 and CSME 2.31 UPDATES that should be available in the coming days/week and then we charged back into the mess at Omaha. I'm quite enjoying this classic, I hope you are as well! Let me know if you'd like to see more of these types of videos after I finish this scenario.  The American's are off the beach and over the cliffs (in some spots) and have started to consolidate and push a little inland. Lots of senseless violence all over the place!

A brief update for the coming UPDATES for both Middle East and Vietnam, stay tuned for those this coming week! After that we dove back into the Omaha scenario to see what kind of senseless violence we could accomplish today. We also went over a brief comparison to what happened on June 6th and how my advance is. It is surprisingly similar, with the exception of one beach. We have a lot of the heavy support weapons on the beach now and preparing to advance deeper inland.

Campaign Series West Front:   After a brief run down on the coming updates for Middle East and Vietnam we dived back into Omaha. I felt like was making some excellent progress until I triggered some victory objectives and noticed the bane of my future. Panthers. Not many so far, but where there is one, there will be more. I've started to push inland and have secured the beaches well enough to unload most of the toys.  Now we are ready for the hardcore push into France!
