  1. Many thanks Joe for your amazing patience and help. Realised later that my Normandy game is in MY DOCUMENTS folder (which was the unusual folder the Normandy game originally installed in) and perusing this I found the "Activation instruction" message and have duly activated my MG expansion data within the game--------success. Cant thank you enough for all your help and suggestions without which I would have bee tearing out the little bit of hair I have left................................. Cheers David ("pcelt)
  2. Thanks for trying to help Joe-much appreciated ---but I can find no Game Folder-- my Battle for Normandy game V 4 and with Commomweath addon is in My Documents. Still stuck and would really appreciate any more help from anyone---Thanks
  3. I have just purchased the Market Garden module and was informed all I needed to do was to enter the new License Number which I have. But I have no idea where to enter it as when I start my Normandy game i go straight to battle choices etc------please help me to locate the means to enter this key. I am nor very computer literate and rather over the hill age wise and would appreciate some help and guidance........................Thanks
  4. Could anyone please tell me the size of the Market Garden download for Normandy game
  5. Has a mod been developed to appreciably narrow the width of these guide lines. At the moment and after a long absence from the sim I have a recently purchased version4 CMBN and the map guide lines when looking at sighting and targeting on the map are extremely wide and inaccurate. I recall some years ago when I had a much earlier version on a computer now defunct such a mod was available and much improved the situation. Any suggestions re availability of such a mod would be much appreciated--Thanks
  6. I cannot find any ref to this in the booklet but I would like to know if the weather conditions selected in Quick Battles affects whether air support is available at all . Any feedback very welcome and appreciated
  7. Is air support unavailable in some weather condition----if so which categories . Appreciate clarification please
  8. This is a very basic and naive question. I recently ordered the Normandy Commonwealth bundle both d/l and delivery. When delivery arrived this appears to be only the Normandy game . I assumed there would be also a Commonwealth add on disk but apparently not. I did not user the d/l option because my internet connection is poor. Is the d/l the only method of securing the Commonwealth add on. Apologies for naive questions but I am very ancient and a bit out of touch. Would appreciate any help .
  9. I have just noticed that many of the U.S M10 TDs (I am fighting a quick armoured battle on German defense Ardennes) have brown oblong blocks on front armour-----Any ideas---dont recall seeing this before--- Thanks
  10. Many thanks for your clarifications re Xylophone rockets. That seems the right identification confirmed when I checked by taking U.S side and purchasing them One final query --what is difference betweenT27 and T27 E2 Xylophone. Many thanks Ian L and Bulletpoint.
  11. Twice now fighting a Quick Battle as German defender I have been struck in first few minutes by a raining down of hundreds of artillery Shells by the US infantry attacker. Can anyone identify what this weapon is and whether it has a rarity rating please My thanks to anyone who can enlighten me re this frightening and devastating weapon. Cheers
  12. Many thanks yet again for your clear response and your very appropriately (for an aging and out of touch gamer) diagrammatical visual aid. Also interested to see your location in the BOB Country----I lived through the BOB period as a lad in St Austell Cornwall and watched the blitz on Plymouth from near my home.Used to love playing the excellent BoB 2 based on Rowan game but now have had to discard that with great difficulty in transferring it and all my mods from XP to Win 10. Again my gratitude for your patient help.with CMFB pcelt
  13. Thanks IanL and Pete both for your insights and helpful comments----but as an aged recent returner to this series after decades in the wilderness, could I please ask a really basic question-where exactly do I locate the "Scenario Editor"in CMFB to check the QB list of battles Many thanks again
  14. Hi Pete thanks--there are many on this PDF that are not in my QB list----the first QB I cannot find is titled on the PDF "A December Morning" If you can help me with this problem I shall be very grateful pcelt
  15. From pcelt-----if you go to "Greenasjade" site and look underCMFB----Other/Misc section you will find the pdf set of QB maps by Sttb. I am fairly certain they are only a reference resource for all QBs but there are many there that do not appear in my in-game collection and I would like to find any other QB battles that are available for use. Cheers
  16. Greetings IanL----thanks for your reply-----my understanding was that the set of maps on PDF which Sttb produced and was listed on "Greenasjade" website was just a reference list so it would be easier to remember what maps we have used for QBs .Are you suggesting that simply copying any of those maps we don't currently have into the Game QB list would serve as a usable QB Map ?---Very new to this game and not sure about what is possible etc Grateful for any further clarification--Cheers NB where in the game folders is the set of usable QBs stored?
  17. I recently d/l as reference the very useful PDF by Sttb with a whole collection QB maps----but I have found that quite a number of these do not appear in my game QB list. Is there another source of QB maps to add to the in-game list and if so where is it available for d/l into game QBs. My thanks to Sttb for this aid and my gratitude to anyone who can add info re more QBs to install and use. Cheers
  18. This must be in the handbook but I cant find it---------Which of the optional weather conditions in Quick Battles would ground all air operations. Grateful for any clarifications anyone can make--Thanks
  19. Many thanks for the feedback re intel graphics and blotchy print in CMFB. I do have the Intel graphics in my NUC . What I am puzzled by is why this blotchy print exists in CNFB ----I also have installed the game Scourge of War Waterloo (Norbsoftdev --Matrix Games) This also has a wide range of print on screen both in menus and in- game action choices. And there is no problem at all with clarity of all print. Why is this different ? Thanks
  20. One problem I am seeing with CMFB is that in a number of places the printed info etc has blotched letters or numbers and is far from clear. Is this a problem anyone else has noticed or is it related to my program and installation only, Thanks for any feedback.
  21. Many thanks --yes I now realise that my Win 10 with no winzip cannot unzip .7Z files so I have d/l a copy of 7Z and managed to open the UI .7Z.
  22. Thanks for all help but I realised in the end that my Win 10 had no way of unzipping the .7Z zip so I d/l Zip .7Z and that enabled me to unzip and install the excellent Juju UI mod. Thanks again
  23. To supplement this question I now see that this file is a.7Z one .Is this UI mod available anywhere as an ordinary zip
  24. I have successfully d/l and installing several tank mods but cannot see how to d/l and install Jujus excellent UI mod for FB. Would some patient and experienced modder please specify in simple steps how to d/l and install this interface. Please help if you can --I have run out of ideas. I have just returned to CM and I have forgotten all my old skills with Normandy etc. I am using a Win 10 comp. Many thanks for any help and advice.
