  • John Tiller's Campaign Series

    Good day

    A thank-you from the Campaign Series Legion and Beta Brigade on the sparkling review in the Wargame Review section of the March 2008 Armchair General.

    For those interested, there is a large 1.03 UPDATE coming shortly with a number of improvements, enhancements and additions.

    Take care and good luck

    A quick amendment.

    The review notes:
    "Developer Website: No website; developed by Talonsoft"

    While the series was orginally released by Talonsoft, designed by John Tiller, it is being updated continuously due to the efforts of the Campaign Series Legion and testing team, the BETA BRIGADE.

    To find out more of what it is all about, check out the Forum at Matrix Games.

    Additionally, the Favourite Fan Site note of battlefront.com is incorrect. The leading Fan Site of the Campaign Series would have to be The Blitzkrieg Wargame Club found at http://www.theblitz.org

    Take care and good luck

      I bought it last year when it came out, and I already had the game as working copies of earlier versions.

      Hey if that isn't a good enough endorsement, phooey on youey

      Thanks for the ongoing work Jason.

          Love it just as much as I loved playing the originals!

            Scenario compatability?

            Hello,

            Can anyone tell me if scenarios for EFII, WF and RS are compatable with the 'new' game? I have some all time favorites and wonder just what changes have been made to the game. Is there a summary posted somewhere, other than the Matrix website?

              Old scenarios ARE compatible with the new version.

              Here is an overview of what you get with the Matrix version:

              Keep in mind that list if current to 1.02, there will be more additions with the coming 1.03 UPDATE.

              Additionally, you can ask at The Blitzkrieg Wargame club in their Campaign Series forum. These guys have been around for years.

              Hope that helps

                John Tiller's Campaign Series Gets a Mega Update!

                Staten Island, NY, July 11th, 2008 - Matrix Games (www.matrixgames.com) and Campaign Series Legion are thrilled to announce the release of a major new update for the acclaimed WWII tactical turn-based hit, John Tiller's Campaign Series. This comprehensive 1.03 brings many fixes and manual additions along with far too many improvements and new features to be listed here. A full change list is available in this forum post
                <http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=1859298> .

                The update addresses many longstanding community issues especially dealing with the dynamic campaign feature and the "Cave bug" found in Rising Sun. A few of the many new notable features include 16 new scenarios to West Front, 8 new scenarios to East Front, varying visibility factors (including night and day operations), massive OOB expansions and revisions, new units for the US Army, Germans, and Soviets, and new engineer capabilities (bridging, mining, construction). Also included are new, more realistic assault rules. The update is quite large (164 MB) and it is recommended that all Campaign Series owners install this great new update.

                David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said "Many issues and problems that have pestered the community since Talonsoft release the game have been addressed and it's truly gratifying to see such a great game get that much better!"

                The John Tiller's Campaign Series compilation exemplifies tactical war-gaming at its finest by bringing you the entire collection of TalonSoft's award-winning campaign series. Containing TalonSoft's West Front, East Front, and Rising Sun platoon-level combat series, as well as all of the official add-ons and expansion packs, the Matrix Edition allows players to dictate the events of World War II from the tumultuous beginning to its climatic conclusion.

                Reinforce your countrymen at the Western Front. Swarm Japanese strongholds on your way to their homeland. Crush the enemy on the Eastern Front. Protect the U.S. coast from Japanese invasion. March into Germany standing victorious with your allies. This exclusive compilation proudly offers more than 350 scenarios, fought by more than 35 countries stretching from France to the American coast.
