Forgotten Heroes, the game that set the Lock ‘n Load Publishing ball in motion, is back in two, easily-obtainable versions. Yes, due to repeated requests, a downloadable edition of the original—and almost four years out of print—Lock ‘n Load module is currently available for the limited-time price of $14.99. Better still, for those with slower Internet connections, Lock ‘n Load Publishing is offering the same files via a mailed CD. Whether you’re a fan of the original or a gamer that missed out the first time around, Forgotten Heroes: Revision 2 (FHR2) provides a unique window to the squad-level confrontations of the Vietnam War.


So, why a downloadable version? Simple answer: gamer's want Forgotten Heroes now. Reprinting the original game is no easy, or quick, task. For one, the game system’s graphics have moved on since Forgotten Heroes hit the stores, and what looked good in 2003 looks dated now. Redrawing all the counters and maps is a huge, but necessary, undertaking; thus, to satisfy the demand, we’ve decided to release the game as a downloadable, with the original counter and map art, but with the added bonus of the new, refined Lock ‘n Load Version 3 (V3) Rules, revised scenarios, players' aids, and more .

We know making counters isn’t everyone’s favorite hobby, so we’ve sorted the counter-mix by scenario, so you only have to make counters for the scenarios you’re ready to play. And if you own other Lock ‘n Load modules, you already have plenty of maintenance counters. A swift download, some cut-and-pasting, and before you know it your feet will be hanging out of the side door of a Huey that’s swooping over Vietnam’s thick jungles and soupy rice paddies.



A Charles S. Roberts award winner, International Gamers Awards Game of the Year, and voted by Game Magazine as one of the top five conflict simulations. Everyone is playing Lock ‘n Load. Shouldn’t you be doing the same?

Two platoons advance on a small village suspected of harboring a Viet Cong contingent. The VC and the Americans know each other are in the area, but neither side expects a stand-up fight to occur. 
Band of Heroes Serious Firepower: Sums up what it’s about with its title. In May of 1968 the Marines spent three bloody days clearing the villages of Dai Do and Dinh To. The fighting was tough, and armor support was called on for the attack on Dai Do. The Marines had a lot of firepower, but so did the NVA forces holding the village. 
Band of Heroes Undeniable Courage: depicts combat that occurred to the east of the Chu Pong Massif on November 14, 1965, between elements of the U.S. Army’s Bravo Company of the 1/7 Cavalry and elements of the NVA’s 320th Infantry Regiment. Shortly after they landed at Landing Zone X-ray, the Americans became heavily engaged by NVA infantry. The company commander, Lt. Herren, ordered Lt. Herrick’s platoon to move up on the company’s right flank. Herrick’s platoon, in pursuit of an NVA squad, overshot the company and became isolated by advancing NVA troops. A big-time firefight was on.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
