I have a longing on me for a turn based strategy game - not a huge strategic juggernaut like Civ but something with an emphasis on turn based combat. I actually found the game I want in my collection - It is called Rim Battle Planets. It seems to be exactly what I want - turn based combat with little tanks and men running around the terrain. Sadly the game has a mean time between crashes of about 5 minutes on my PC. I have tried all the fixes I can think of - turning off all bells and whistles, running in compatibility mode, running on a single processor core but nothing works.
Looking around for an equivalent I am a bit stumped. I have plenty of real time strategy games in my collection but turn based are a rare breed. The following possibilities suggest themselves:
Kings Bounty the Legend: Possibly, but I played the demo so much that I got bored of game.
Combat Mission: Possibly, this is a lot more serious than I was looking for though.
Advanced Strategic Command: This free game is the sort of thing I am looking for but boy is it ugly and boy is the interface clunky. Also I suspect the single player aspect is lousy.
