    The other day, I saw this in another thread. It’s exciting to see someone discover a new front, and a new game.  
    But I would never have thought the eastern front could be described as “easy!”
     

     
    Easy?

    It's simple really... I lose a battle and the game is broken beyond repair! I win a battle and the game is perfect! 🤪

    I am a stalwart supporter of BFC, been playing the games for longer than I can remember. I made a modest contribution to the development of CMFI some years ago.
    Yes, waiting for the patch has been unusually testing, but this game system has so many facets that even though I played less I still had a lot of fun making maps and designing scenarios, not to mention fun testing them.
     
    These guys are a small team of extremely dedicated enthusiasts. They give 100%. I still haven't found anything remotely approaching their product for the kind of game play I appreciate. I have total confidence in their judgment and integrity. And I don't begrudge them for one minute the long gestation of this patch, or the confusion over exactly when it will be released.
    Thank you Steve, thank you Charles, thank you everyone else who put their time and effort in bringing these games to us.
    I've gone through a rough patch that has lasted nearly ten years so far. If and when I get back on my feet, I will be glad to lend a hand again. I hope it will be soon (can't give a precise date though... sorry, I couldn't resist that :-) ). In the mean time, I don't mind saying that playing your games has often been the only source of fun and relaxation for me, and a good way to avoid going mad during the long spells when real life got held up in limbo.

    On a related note - make use of the full installers for your install process on your new computer. In other words download the full installers for the latest version of the games you have purchased. That will be much less painful than starting at an early version and updating things step by step - especially for CMFI and CMBN.

    BFCElvis got a reaction from K98-Schütze[GER] in Interest in purchase....some questions before   
    "Digital only" is just the download version of the game
    "Disk only" is no longer an option
    "Manual only" is the digital download and the physical manual is shipped to you
    "Manual and Disc" is the digital download and the physical manual and disc are shipped to you.

    BFCElvis got a reaction from CharlieMike24 in CMSF2 getting a splash screen with just the tank firing in the dark? Here's why.   
    I've gotten some tickets on the Help Desk where people are getting what they describe as either a back screen or just the Battlefront tanks firing with the black background. This happens when an element (or more) of the Upgrade is not activated. To cure it (or avoid it) follow these activation instructions:
     
    Installation and activation instructions for the Combat Mission: Shock Force 1 Upgrade:   1) Download the game, extract the download and run the game installer.   2) Use the desktop shortcut labeled Activate New Products and enter the key that came with your CMSF Upgrade purchase.   3) Use the Activate New Products shortcut and enter your original Combat Mission Shock Force 1 base game key   4) If have purchased any of the module Upgrades use the Activate New Products shortcut and enter your original Combat Mission Shock Force module key. Repeat will all module keys.    You can actually activate these bits in any order that you want as long as each piece is activated. It's just the OCD in me that lists them in the order above.   Here's what it looks like:

    Hi guys,
     
    Open a Help Desk ticket. Give me as much information as you can (game title(s), license key, order number, real name....the more information the better but don't sweat it too much...just whatever information you have). I'll get you hooked up.

    BFCElvis got a reaction from Badger73 in Best way to install all games on new computer?   
    I'm probably too late to help too but I'll put this in case anyone else reads it looking for the information.....
    If you purchased the 4.0 Big Bundle, to do full installations of each game you would download the Full Windows/Mac versions for each title. For instance the full game installer for a Windows computer for CMBN is called "CMBN 4.0 Full Windows". That will install everything through the 4.0 Upgrade. The base game and every module, patch, Upgrade and Pack.
    From there you will need to activate things. Here are the keys you'll need for each title....assuming that you own everything (some items may be part of a Bundle but I think you'll get the idea):
     
    CMBN: 4.0, 3.0, Market Garden, Commonwealth, Vehicle Pack, Battle Pack
    CMRT: original base game and 4.0
    CMFI: base game, 4.0, 3.0 and Gustav Line
    CMBS: base game and 4.0
    As mentioned above, CMBS also has the 2.01 patch that needs to be installed. The 2.01 patch and CMBS Battle Pack are the exact same download. The only difference is that when you purchase the Pack you get a key to "unlock" the content.
    I can dig how much of a pain it may be to dig through your account for all of the key. Whenever I get a new key for something I add it to a Word document that I keep so that I can get to them easily.

    BFCElvis got a reaction from AkumaSD in Help! Bought Mac version :(   
    I've gotten a couple of these tickets so far. If you were one of them, please go into your ticket and give the information for both purchases. Neither of the tickets that I received mentioned that they had repurchased the correct version, in addition to buying the wrong one. We handle these differently.
