Yeah, I've completed both Cannon Fodders but this is something else. lol I think maybe it should have been called Cannon Fodder Extreme. lol.

These levels are hard as feck! The early levels are supposed to be nice and easy. The difficulty curve is off the scale! I agree with mission 2. Its almost impossible. The best way I found is going to the far left or right and splitting up your men into two groups. I manage to get a few men on the beach if I take the extreme riight hand side. Still not done it though.

Thanks for the update by the way!

Ps. I think I prefer the original pointer and crosshair to the updated one. How do I get the old style pointer into this game??

Yay, best game release of the century

I'll be giving this a go over the weekend. CF 1 & 2 were too easy so looking forward to the challenge

Quick tip (shamelessly nabbed from another forum): if you have an original CF save game you can use it with these new missions too - so as long as you're decent at the original, you can pretty much check out any new mission you want as long as you have a save for it. I had an old save for mission 10 and having used it with the new missions, I can safely say it doesn't get much easier...

There is now also a "Ram-Installed Save-State" (RISS) version for PSPUAE available via the pspuae.com downloads section.

i am also being motivated by this to work on my Mega-Lo-Mania editor again

As for mission 2 phase 1 go to the extreme left - you can do the level with one man

you are missing the 'installer' program from your workbench setup.

use the pre-installed version in The Zone to avoid the extra hassle of installing it yourself

Tell me about it - I finally completed mission 2 phase 1 but it was sheer luck that I did it. I went over to the extreme right and it just so happened that none of the turrets took a shot at any of my soldiers, making the rest of the phase relatively simple.

Of course, next time I tried it, they all got blown to kingdom come long before they got to the beach...

Let me guess, you didn't read the guide supplied in the archive, did you?

And, once again, I'd like to ask: how do I reset the saves?


BTW: Updated to 1.0.1

1.0.1 (28.08.2008) - PARATROOPERS (mapm7)
+ Civilian door instead of enemy one!? Fixed
+ Cosmetics.
