I saw a review of the Rules The Waves computer game on Wargamer.Com, and I stumbled on the computer moderated minatures rules.

Does anyone have any experience with these?

I have a bunch of ships and since I like Carnage & Glory a lot, I wonder if these are good, including not just the surface-to-surface, but the carrier/air system.

Sadly not but would love to see a detailed review. Lots of data to work with it would be good to see it in action.

I have used BZ for a couple games and i thought they worked really well. You have to pay attention to ships relative positions and other details as the computer is not aware of ships positin on the playing surface, just what you input. Overall I found them to deliver an accurate result, better than the old Shipbase III computer assisted game.

They are not very well supported though

Sorry for the multiple post. Bad connection on the iPhone……

I used both. The WW 1 version works well. The WW 2 version to me not so well as there is a lot left out of the program that you have to track and do manually. One of the most glarring ommisions for me of things left out of the program is if carriers have plans loaded. There are clear rules for this in the paper rules but they are left out of the computer program, so you have to do all the computations and rolling manually.
