Combat Mission: Fortress Italy Updated
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story has announced the release of an updated version of Combat Mission: Fortress Italy. Version 1.01 provides a large number of improvements and fixes, including "dozens and dozens" of revised QuickBattle maps, new improved shaders, and textures.

The first in a "new family" of Combat Mission titles, CM:FI focuses on the Allied struggle to defeat Italy during World War II. The stand alone game gives players the chance to play as the American, Italian, and German forces in three unique campaigns.

Fortress Italy is a new "family" of Combat Mission games covering the Allied struggle to knock Italy out of the Second World War. This initial release deals explicitly with the battle for Sicily and sets the groundwork for future additions to simulate the hard fighting in the rugged terrain of "Europe's underbelly" up until the war's end in 1945.

The combat forces immediately available to players include the full range of historically available American, Italian, and German forces which fought in Sicily. In addition to the completely new Italian forces, both the American and German organizations differ significantly from those familiar to Combat Mission: Battle for Normandy players. Some of the highlights are elite formations such as:

  • Italian Bersaglieri
  • American Rangers
  • German Herman Göring Division
Of course, the time frame and units involved require equipment new to the Combat Mission series. A full list is available on the new Fortress Italy website, however here are some particularly fun gadgets to play with:
  • R-35 Light Tank
  • Semovente 90/53
  • Panzer Mk III
  • Grille
  • M3 GMC Halftrack
  • T30 HMC Halftrack
Players get to dive in and try these forces out in three (!!!) campaigns, one from the perspective of each national force (USA, Germany, Italy), a host of new stand alone battles, and of course the automatically generated QuickBattles. It won't take long for Normandy players to feel how different this time period and setting is from what they are used to. And the Italian forces are very interesting indeed! Squads the size of Platoons, almost no radios at all, few antitank weapons, proportionally few support weapons, and relatively light armored vehicles present even the best CM player with a lot of new challenges.

Feral Puts The Gold In Empire: Total War Gold Edition
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

In a recent Facebook posting Feral Interactive has revealed steps to unlock a series of special saved games for the real time strategy title, Empire: Total War Gold Edition. The Gold Rush saves provide players with copious amounts of the shiny mineral to power their expansionistic plans.

As many of you reading this post will know, Empire: Total War - Gold Edition does not have any cheats, no gold (even though it’s the “Gold Edition” how confusing), no instant build, no Oliphants (see Rome: Total War, or indeed look out of the window on a misty Middle Earth morning).

Still, our blue-shirted technical wizards (they call themselves “engineers”, but we know better) often try and hide some cool features in the game. Because they started programming Empire after watching one too many Bond films, they decided they wanted...


Lots and lots of Gold.

After some forceful “beating” of the source code and many "special" versions of the game, (fuelled by elixir of a friendly forest redshirt), progress was made and nuggets of the "Gold Rush" saves emerged from the grainy pan of the source code.

Check out the link below for details.
