Combat Mission 3 - Afrika Corps is the third and last instalment in the Combat Mission series that take place during World War II. After battles on the western and eastern Front in World War II you fight this time in Africa. The game combines turn-based and real-time strategy. In the planning phase both sides give timed orders to their units which are resolved non-interactively in the real-time execution phase. Field of view, shooting ranges, armour plating, type of damage and even the exact hit points of the shots are considered in the game making the game very pseudo-realistic. (MobyGames)

The disc image contains English, German and French installers. The updater archive includes updates to v. 1.03 for each of these languages.

From other comments in www, it probably depends on the language the installed Mac OS is available.
If the comments are right, you need the same language version of Game Sprockets as your emulated Mac OS is: (written in German) .

Apparently, the download link given in the final thread entry is dead (thanks to Apple who rmvd it),
but the Webarchive has captured it here: Document: 31236 (GameSprockets 1.7.5 Document and Software)

Tested one of the downloads and it still works. Smile

Thanks for the tip but unfortunately no success. Installed game sprockets 1.7.5 (which includes sound sprockets) and still no ambient sound or music. Oh well, I can still play CMBO (even though some of the battle noises sound like dolphins!). If anyone else has installed and played CMAK, please post your results (successful or not). Just curious if it might be my hardware.

Hi HughMungus. I did not test this with sound on so I cannot comment on this. However, it might be worth installing Apple's Sound Sprocket if you don't already have it.

Thanks a lot for uploading this, mrdav...great series. I installed game and update but am experiencing sound issues. There is no music, can't hear any vehicle noises or explosions during gameplay but strangely enough, when the troops begin to clash, I can hear the soldiers voices on both sides-nothing else. it just makes for an odd gameplay experience. The sound in my installed Combat Mission Beyond Overlord is distorted but audible. Wondering if the games are just too demanding for my cpu (or do I need to install some kind of sound sprocket?). I am running the game under os 9.2.2 on a 600 mhz G3 iBook with 256 mb of ram. Any feedback from anyone would be appreciated. Thanks again
