I'm guessing most of you are familiar with load/save state? Well it's made the mod just about playable for me.

Just make sure your WB config has a pretty low amount of memory specified so the states aren't slow to work with (and avoid z3 ram, don't think UAE likes snapshotting that), then simply make a couple of saves at strategic points in each level.

Now there isn't the highly frustrating start over / lose entire squad for a stupid turret, more like an undo button

Some would call it cheating, I call it fixing the mod

CF is one of my favourite games - I'm most pleased to see a new campaign but WHY did it have to be so hard..?

My hat's off to the developer but as someone who never finished the original I have no hope of completing this.

PLEASE do an easy version for rubbish-gamers like me!

It wouldn't be fun though if it weren't hard!

I finished CF1 & 2 so need a new challenge

If you have completed original campaign you should not have any problems with playing CFNC. On many forums I have read that cfnc is very difficult or impossible to complete. That is not true, I think that it is as difficult as original campaign. Easy version will never get out.
Did anyone accomplished new campaign?

i think you'll find it's 72 new "phases" ... levels / missions/ maps / whatever.. who cares? is it really worth correcting someone over? all you need to know is that you wont be playing anything from the original game.

Is there any way to get these missions to work with the CD32 version? That would make a neat unofficial CD32 release

Wow, now that is one useless post IC You say that a 'level' in Cannon Fodder is a mission and I say it's a map. Now what?

I completed the original. I think this is many, many times harder. I wrote a review of it for Amiga Future some time ago - I think it's really good work and you've put a lot of great effort into it - it's a heck of an achievement to design 72 new levels - but I think there is more of a reliance on luck than there should be, from what I remember.

Shouldn't be too hard to replace files here and there I don't think? If you wanted a shortcut method you could even try using CDMage to inject the map files over the old ones.

Hmmm. IIRC the CD32 version doesn't have any audio tracks, so it should be dead easy to recreate a disc using the new campaign... I'll keep it in mind.

It only has an additional Mode 2 track containing the MPEG1 intro - but seeing as WinUAE is unlikely to emulate it anytime soon, most people probs won't miss it. Unless you feel having the intro (particularly for real CD≥≤ users) would make it more 'complete'?

In few first missions enemy soldiers are very slow and not aggresive so there are many enemy cannons/tanks firing in unexpectable way. Further levels are (in my opinion) different than missions 1-5 (less cannons). I agree with a reliance on luck when wandering in the jungle. Booby traps, and mines are now more "invisible" than in original campaign (in original campaign I never lost any soldier on a booby trap).
I know that someone achieved mission 12 (and probably completed it) some time ago, but nothing more. I accomplished new campaign two times but it does not count.

I did, only by whoring UAE's save/load state feature - it's 99.9% impossible otherwise due to small chance stuff several minutes into a level etc.
