DOS - 1995
Description of Breach 3
Breachis an early but detailed simulation of tactical level combat.
Breach 2, a newer revision, adds more details and fits as a tactical subset into Rules of Engagement through Omnitrend's innovative "Interlocking Game System." Easy to learn and fun to play, it was definitely ahead of its time. A design-your-own scenario option greatly extended the replay value. 4 years later and after Omnitrend's demise, Impressions picked up the engine and released Breach 3, an excellent update with campaign builder, scenario designer, and VGA graphics. It also integrates into Rules of Engagement 2, release concurrently. Must haves for all armchair commanders who crave complexity and tactical realism.

Couldn't get it to work either, but maybe i just don't have the time to spare to tinker around with this

The Breach3.exe file is in a folder named HD. When you try to run it it gets an error for the sound (maybe because it is the CD version) even after you run the setup. There is no exe file in the main menu and if you cut and paste the breach3.exe it still won't run.

Forgot to add:
-For the copy and paste it's much quicker to do it in Windows/MacOs/Linux than in DosBox.
-You have to run INSTALL.EXE and SETUP.EXE in DosBox.

Wanted to add this to help folks out.
1. Make sure the folder/directory that you Unzip the game in is B3. The game will not work if you have a different name on the folder.
2. Open the TDUJAM.nfo file in notepad or similar.
3. You'll see the following installation directions, somewhere in the mess of ASCII characters.
-Run TDUJAM.EXE to decompress the game.*
*TDUJAM.EXE is NOT included in this download. You must manually copy and paste the files found in the following folders to the main B3 folder: VOI, SPRI, SCRE, SAMP, PALET, P, MU, HD, AN.
*The B3DATA, B3GAMES, CAMPAIGN, DRIVERS folders which you copied from the HD folder to the B3 folder do not have to have the files found INSIDE of them copied to the main B3 folder.
-Run INSTALL.EXE to install and enter the drive letter (99% of the time this is C in DosBox) you decompressed to for the destination drive, and keep the default directory \B3.
-Run SETUP.EXE to setup your sound. Usually SoundBlaster and the top choices for the sound channels etc should work.
-Run BREACH3.EXE to play. IN DOSBOX!
Hope this helps. This game is quite cool.
