What's the best way to print the scenario maps ? I'd like to print them off and plan my attack/defence on paper, the old fashioned way.

Thanks.

Richard (aka the Plodder) did an excellent overlay for Google Earth of all the Battle for the bulge maps a long time ago.
The link for them used to be on the Matrix site, but I have been looking for it for you, and can't find it anywhere?
Setting the camera in Google Earth to what you want, then printing the screen would be a good method for what you are after I think.
You could also set it into a 3D view if you wanted.

Another method, that I use, is to take a screen capture of the game by pressing the print screen button on your keyboard.
This copies the screen to your clipboard, where you can then paste it into an image editing program of your choice, and either print it as is, or do your planning on there with the paintbrush tool.

The battlefield tour for the bulge is here: ftp://ftp.matrixgames.com/pub/BattlesFromTheBulge/BattlesfromtheBulge-BattlefieldTour.kmz
I still have the old COTA maps as well which has the maps for the Greek,Crete and Malta scenarios: http://www.mediafire.com/download/sg1ntjmbj0s/COTA_Maps.zip:
Once you download them ,if you change the file extensions from .kmz to .zip, you can extract the map files from inside them and print them out as normal.
The link to the Battlefield Tour seems not to work.
