Hi Barry,

I love your game! I am not sure if you permit this but I would like to create a Cyberboard game using your rules. Do you permit this? Is there a CB version already created? I would of course email it to you for review.

Tks/Dave

Cyberboard Module
I have uploaded the Cyberboard module approved by Barry to the file section. This is my first upload to a file and I guess it needs to be approved / reviewed. So take a look and vote!

A couple minor quibbles -

There's no way to flip a unit over, so it's impossible to indicate a squad is pinned.

There might also be a "Wreck" marker, as a destroyed AFV would still block LOS, and it's impossible to flip them over either.

A game like this really, really makes me miss the LOS line that was available on lesser PBEM programs like SMS or V-Map, BTW.

I downloaded the gamebox but it's password protected and there are no scenarios created so it's basically useless. What is the password?

I'll try the VASSAL module as well...

Hello

I uploaded the beta one which was password protected. I will upload the corrected one without the password. But thats a good point regarding the Pinned issue. I will upload the revised gamebox later tonight.

I was able to start a new scenario and play a short game even with the password-protected version. The only problem (and this is a problem with Cyberboard in general) is that it's more difficult to tell what playing piece trays to create if you can't browse the tiles beforehand, but that's not insurmountable.

(I have to admit - I just grabbed a couple of squads, a Panzer III and an M3, and let them all go at it. Panzer and M3 exchanged shots; M3 got destroyed and I realized that a:I hadn't taken any support weapons for the Americans and B: I hadn't read the "close assault" rules well enough, which was the only way the Americans could have taken on the Panzer. Oops.)

That was my bad. I uploaded the bata version and not the final version which is not password protected. But before I do that I want to fix the Pinned notification on the counters and will upload a revised gamebox. I dont include senarios in the game box as this is very easy for players to do and not really needed to include in the gamebox.

Ok I have removed the password from the gamebox. My apologies for that. I have also copied the counter for the American, German, and British units (infantry, officers) and have enabled the back - Pinned counter. I have also done this for Vehicles (destroyed). I am going to uploade a revised gamebox. Not sure how long it will take so if want a copy during this process please email me.

Dave

I checked out the v3.0 gamebox earlier today; the "Pinned" sides look very nice.

(I was wondering about making "Pinned" a marker instead of a reverse side; I suppose though that if the gamebox is un-passworded it's possible to do it both ways.)

Ok I redid the pinned counters with graphios as well as the vehicle destroyed counters. I just uploaded a unprotected password version with 1 senario (Hedgerow Hell).

Enjoy!
