  1. Sorry have not been following the forums. What Is the policy with CMBS. Do you still get a # of licenses on purchase (i.e. one for laptop/desktop etc?) IIRC it was 4 ? Just curious. Also is there a incentive for the pre-order?

    Looks as usual an amazing platform again.


    Yes, the same licensing/EULA rules apply. The incentive to pre-order is that you get the download and the disc without the additional $10 price tag, and you'll get the Limited Edition Tin Case.

  2. Is there a grace period for peeps who purchased CMBN about... two weeks ago?

    You shouldn't need one.

    If you purchased a download and it included the 3.0 Upgrade or the VPack, then you have what you need. Just redownload the Upgrade.

    If you didn't, then you need to purchase the Upgrade now, and you'll have what you need.

    We switched the mail discs over to this new installer system more than two weeks ago already.


  3. I assume my CMBS on DVD will have the master installer?

    Yes, the CMBS did will be a master installer. But, for a 1.0 release on a DVD there is not going to be any difference to a "normal" installer.

    And I assume that any patches or new modules can be added to my MAC CMBN 3.11 as is?


    Since I own CMRT patched to 1.03 I am good for whatever comes next year?

    Yes, you don't need to do anything.

    When I get my CMFI with my CMBS (I bought them at they same time) I install and patch (when needed) like I normally would?

    If CMBS is released before CMFI is converted, then yes. If CMFI is converted by then, you'll get a master disc for CMFI which you won't need to patch. You won't need to patch CMBS in any case.


  4. If you purchase CW now, you will have to download the new master installer that comes with it, and install it. It will install over your current game, and it will give you all you need, updated to v3.11. You won't have to re-activate anything you already have (base game or MG), only CW. Should you decide to buy the VPack later, you won't need to download anything at all. You'll just need the key from that purchase to unlock the pack.


  5. So..am a little confused about how this master installer will work for those Luddites (me) that buy DVDs

    So when my CMFI/GL bundle, plus 3.0, which I just ordered, arrives on DVD it will include the master installer?

    And I bought the old CMBN MAC DVD big bundle with 2.0 and all the modules then downloaded 3.0 and 3.11.. Do I need to redownload and reinstall 3.0 and 3.11 to get this master installer?

    Finally assume my CMBS on DVD will have have the master installer?


    CMFI is not yet updated. This only pertains to CMBN at the moment.

    If you have C!BN 3.11 running already at the moment, you don't need to do anything at all. Should you ever need to reinstall, then you can simply redownload the 3.0 Upgrade. It will have all you need.

    CMBS will be released with the new system already, yes. This doesn't mean much for DVDs, of course.


  6. No, you don't need to remove anything. This will install smoothly over what you got.


    The Vpack instructions are what you need, yes: http://battlefront.mojohelpdesk.com/help/article/132344(or the 3.11 patch instructions).


    You won't need to download anything else (i.e. no need to download the Vpack or patch).


    The announcement just went live, too: http://community.battlefront.com/topic/117168-new-cmbn-master-installers/

  7. Combat Mission Battle for Normandy - News Saturday, 20 December 2014

    As previously rumored, we have now updated all CM:BN packages available for purchase to Game Engine Version 3.0, meaning that all of the packages available in the www.battlefront.com/store now are fully up to date v3.11. This also marks the end of life of CM:BN v2.x, which has now been discontinued.


    As part of this update, we have also implemented our new master installer system for CM:BN. Here are some of the highlights:


    1- every full version download will always be up to date from now on and always include the latest updates. No need to patch after purchase. And if you need to re-install at some later point, simply re-download your purchase and you will always have the latest version without the need to apply individual patches.



    2- every full version download including a base game purchase, or the 3.0 Upgrade, now contains the full master installer for the entire family including all modules and packs. This means if you purchase just the base game, and later decide to purchase a module, you will not have to download anything at all! All you'll need is the license key from your purchase to unlock the module content which you'll already have!


    3- we implemented this system retroactively for all 3.0 Engine Upgrade purchases! Your store download for that purchase now points to a full master installer, including all of the content for Normandy, updated to v3.11. If you ever need to reinstall, that's the only thing you need. And, as per 1- above, this download will always remain up to date in the future.


    4- future patches or modules or packs not containing a base game purchase will come with smaller installers with more or less just the content you'll need, to avoid excessive downloads. So if you're up to date already except for the latest release, you won't have to re-download the whole master again.


    5- this system will enable us to, in the future, allow h2h play between players who do not own the same content. In other words, you'll be able to play against someone with Commonwealth Forces, even if you haven't purchased that module. You won't, of course, be able to use content in solo play if you haven't purchased it yourself. Note that this is planned for future releases, not a new feature available now!


    6- this system will make reinstalls much easier, as well as relicensing on a new PC, and will reduce the risk for installation errors. Moreover, this new system is not using individual module.exe files any more, making it much less prone to anti-virus software false positives.


    7- Older purchases of CM:BN - 1.x and 2.x - have not been updated and remain accessible to those who purchased them. We strongly recommend these users to purchase the 3.0 Upgrade, however, which will replace their game with a 3.0 engine and the simple one-stop full master installer.


    8- if you purchase a Mail Delivery (Download & Mail or Mail only), you will automatically receive a disc with the latest version available at the time of shipping. If, in the future, you would like to receive an updated disc, you will be able to request one by submitting a ticket at battlefront.mojohelpdesk.com. You will need to pay $5 plus the usual S&H.


    Combat Mission: Fortress Italy and Combat Mission: Red Thunder will be updated to this new system next year. Combat Mission: Black Sea will already be available using this same system.


    Happy Holidays!

  8. Yeah, you don't need to patch. What you need to do after downloading is pretty much follow the instructions for the 3.11 patch to get your game relicensed. Your keys are saved in your online account at www.battlefront.com/store. After logging in, click on My Account.


    If you forgot your login, go to www.battlefront.com/lostpw.


    More details about this and the 3.11 patch / VPack relicensing instructions are on our battlefront.mojohelpdesk.com.

  9. Yes, it is right. What you are downloading is the entire Normandy family. It replaces your existing installation completely. Once you have this, you have the entire Normandy game up to date (v3.11) including all content. You can then unlock the content that you purchased (modules) with the keys you have.

    An official announcement about this is coming shortly.


  10. What do you mean with "it doesn't update the Commonwealth module"? Since 3.10, there are no more module.exe files, so the patch updates everything. Or nothing (if installed wrong).


    Sounds like installation issues to me. My suggestion - redownload the 3.0 Upgrade. This has now been switched to a huge download which includes the entire game, updated to 3.11. More about this switch later this weekend. This is the only download you'll need, it includes the entire family. Then use your keys to activate what isn't (chances are, everything already is).


    No need to futz around with different installers any more.

  11. We don't sell patches. There is an update for $1 or so as a courtesy to Paradox customers who were left out in the cold, and which transforms the game to a BFC release (with key). Other than that, your license key from your Battlefront purchase is either in your customer account, or printed on the product, or, for purchases older than 2007, can perhaps be requested by submitting a ticket at http://battlefront.mojohelpdesk.com

  12. Combat Mission: Red Thunder v1.03 patch (PC/Mac)

    CM: Red Thunder - News Friday, 19 December 2014 ru_soldier-100.png

    The v1.03 patch provides a number of important improvements and fixes, including the infamous "26% bug" for those affected, improved stability of internet play, improved building entry for some systems, a mouse text targeting feature indicating range, improved TacAI logic, and much more. It is all-inclusive and can be installed over any version of the game (1.0 thru 1.02)

    The v1.03 patch is available for PC and Mac.

    redthunderlogo_final-v155.pngCMRT v1.03 WHATS NEW
    • Corrected the PBEM/saved-game crash bug (note: applies to v1.01 and v1.02 but not old saved games from v1.00).
    • Corrected the “pause bug” when dragging a waypoint.
    • Shrapnel is modeled with higher fidelity.
    • Antiaircraft weapons won’t shoot if the gunner is hiding.
    • Vehicles that are hiding are more difficult to hear, even compared to stationary non-hiding vehicles.

  13. Yeah, but I like the old way, getting an immediate notification when there is a reply, and then nothing more until I visit the thread, even if there are more replies before I visit the thread. So, there are now only two choices, either an email message for each new reply, or just getting a daily/weekly digest once a day or week?

    I dunno. Explore the Notification settings.

  14. It seems that with this new forum, there is an email notification sent out with every post of a followed thread. Is there any way to get back the old function, where only one message is sent out until the thread is visited? Kind of annoying to open the email inbox and see 10-20 emails for a single followed thread.

    This totally depends on your Notification settings. You can opt out of email notifications for replies and only leave the daily/weekly digests enabled, for example.
