These haven’t been available digitally anywhere else?

Gamersgate (https://www.gamersgate.com/games?prio=relevance&q=combat%20mission) and also DRM free, but $25 (or $15 for Beyond Overlord) is too much for games that are 15 years old.

But I can't go back to those graphics with all the newer games available.

What are you talking about? It's like you could step into your monitor and walk down that street.   :D   I did have a lot of fun with CMBB back in the day but I can't go back either.

CMBO Was already available on GOG but not the other 2. This is good news for those who miss these Great Old Games, like me. But I'm with Pete, these game look... real... old.

Last year lightning destroyed my old computer and while I waited for a new one, I drug out an ancient one to have SOMETHING to play. And there were my old friends, CMBO,CMBB,CMAK, and I fell in love all over again. But she is a VERY old girlfriend.

I got the Combat Mission Anthology on CD from CDV almost 2 decades ago because I was going to need that for the upcoming Combat Mission Campaigns.

But : https://videogamegeek.com/thread/724654/tragic-tale-combat-mission-campaigns  :'(.


And now I'm afraid to put an old CD or DVD in my computer thinking I could end up with another Starforce disaster.

Yes, along with working with GOG for the past few months to get these up I have been trying to get Gamersgate's listings pulled down. Our agreement with them expired years ago.

I kinda agree about the graphics. Tough to look at once you're used to the CMx2 games. While setting things up with GOG I did play more of these games than I played in a very very very long time. I enjoyed it.  Kinda the same feeling Sir Slash had.

Thanks for keeping them alive! I had bought these on Gamersgate but I am buying them on GOG too.

Truly a Labor of Love Elvis. And a great credit to all of you who haven't just forgotten about the old girl.  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Ooooh! -- I was hoping Battlefront (though I think it's actually Strategy First exercising their options) would follow up Beyond Overlord with Barbie and Afrika.

Not lying, I bought CMBO on GoG primarily to encourage the release of CMBB and CMAK.

I have all these on CD, couldn't get them to go wide screen last time I tried, or find the no CD patch. I'll probably get these on sale, wonder if all the mods are still available. They didn't look too terrible with the HD textures. There was a lot of value in those packages, still a bunch of content not available on the newer games, scenarios and campaigns wise.

They are on sale. 10% off. $5.39. I'm about to go out and grab a beer that will cost me more than that. :-)

I remember fondly playing CMBB as the Germans and trying to get my panzers to charge to effective range against a KV-2. They just kept taking a shot, popping smoke, and then full reverse to cover. Can't say as I blame them.

Excellent!  Love the random map generator.  Also just seem easier to play than CMx2.
"Baseball's Sad Lexicon" - 1910

These are the saddest of possible words:
      “Tinker to Evers to Chance.”
Trio of bear cubs, and fleeter than birds,
      Tinker and Evers and Chance.
Ruthlessly pricking our gonfalon bubble,
      Making a Giant hit into a double—
Words that are heavy with nothing but trouble:
      “Tinker to Evers to Chance.”

"Tinker to Evers to Chance"
"where doubles go to die"

These three players helped the Cubs win four National League championships and two World Series from 1906 to 1910.
