  1. I just purchased Black Sea today and started with the first 3 smallest missions. The first mission gathering the intel from the knocked out vehicles played like all the other CMs I have so it was a pretty easy victory for me. Had one wounded and destroyed all other enemy personnel on the field. I even had one wounded by the knocked out vehicle in the middle of the field and had a Medal of Honor moment and sent my men back into the fray to get him medical attention. Second mission "Going to town" I got my butt handed to me. As in my scout/sniper team took 3 steps out of cover and got destroyed, so I moved some of the AFVs up and they both got lit up without so much as looking around. Ended the mission there thinking I needed practice with modern day Russian equipment. Mission 3. The night one with an American platoon? hunting a few AAA vehicles. Look at map and think...easy. Got a sweet little creek to follow with cover, got a scout team ahead already, this should get my pride back up. NOPE! I cannot for the life of me move my guys up close enough, even in the dark (night vision perhaps) to even see the third launcher let alone get a coordinated three shots at the same time ambush on them. So really, thank you BFC! I have been gone from the game (again sadly) because I had just lost my love for the game because I had I guess figured out the A.I. Took a shot in the dark that Black Sea was different and I wasn't disappointed. I am going to have to learn my tactics all over again and I love it! Side note, any tips for this one guys? Such a noob question but this isn't WWII anymore and I cannot get my men close without getting shot to pieces. Im guessing I need to learn to stay way back for this modern stuff?
  2. I didn't have any mods or Z folders or anything yet. I had just downloaded the update and did a trial game. Once I uninstalled and reinstalled it fixed all issues. I should have gotten a video of the scout car driver with no vehicle. Was rather funny seeing him slide down the road on his rump with a trail of dust behind him.🤣
  3. Sorry for the question gents, back to CM after many years away. Upgraded CMFI from base game to 3 to 4 and got it licensed etc. Went to play a game and noticed all my US Infantry have black uniforms. The helmets are there, the belts, webbing, backpack and all that but the uniforms are all black. Am I missing a file? I patched to version 2.02 and haven't modded anything. Tried several different battles as well and seems to just be us infantry. Any help is appreciated edit: Seems to be just US Ranger infantry. But a scout car is also missing everything. Just shows the driver sliding down the road. Kind of funny. Maybe an uninstall and reinstall are in order.
  4. That did it! Thanks guys. I didn't have the Battlefront folder in my documents. Just went from my documents/combat mission. Stupid but easy fix. Thanks again guys.
  5. Ok thanks. I think I found the folder, I see all the scenarios and campaigns in it. I put it into the old C drive, my documents and started up CMRT but still nothing to select. Obviously I put it in the wrong spot. Being computer dumb, where in the my documents directory should I place it? Again, thanks for the help.
  6. Went to play CMRT today after a long break from it, game started fine, went to build a quick battle and when it asks you to pick a map, mine was blank. Weird I thought so I went to play a campaign, same thing. Restarted and same results. Only thing I can think of is I got a new HDD and moved all my games over to it, would I have screwed it up that way? But its not asking me for my serial number or code so I don't know. Otherwise would it be the upgrade? I haven't upgraded to version 4 yet. Any help is appreciated if anyone else ran into this problem. Also to note, CMBN works fine.
  7. Ahh didnt think of that. It would make the most sense about close assaulting the tank. @user1000; I guess its hard to believe for me because I haven't seen a MG crew with a faust in all my games. I'm not saying they didn't or don't carry them In game, they probably do and I am just not noticing it because of several reasons, most of them being that they die way before a tank rolls up because of my horrible ability at this game
  8. I tried to save a screen shot but didn't paste in any of my folders for some reason, story is, playing the Barkmanns corner battle that comes with CMBN, Sherman comes about 20m away from a MG 42. Don't see what happens but at end of mission looking at the stats for each unit I see the MG got credit for the Sherman kill. How did that happen? Anyone have anything else similar to this happen? I didn't recall seeing any 'fausts in their inventory but maybe they did? Wish I could have noticed it and seen it in the replay
  9. Thanks Schrullenhaft. I was at 31.2 GB for that folder so by my MN math that looks to be about 3 installs on the file. Weird it didn't overwrite the files or even ask me to but I got it figured out. I was thinking the 3 activations were maybe the Market Garden and Commonwealth forces add ons but since I don't have them I didn't know. Heck, even if it WAS 3 activations for one game it wouldn't bother me. I don't plan to delete this game anyhow Thank you so much for your input on this as it did save me about 20 GB of space now that I got it cleaned up again.
  10. I was having problems after downloading the CMBN 3.0 upgrade, I clicked the setup file and it began to install then told me that I didn't have the space on the HD to install. So I went and uninstalled a few programs and tried it again, same thing happened. Confused I deleted more and tried again....got the install to work and went to put in my activation key. It said success and shows me that I seems that I unlocked the following "CM battle of Normandy PC, CM Battle of Normandy PC, CM battle of Normandy PC" So I must have installed the game 3 times, now trying to find where those three are, extraction says "c, users, files etc.....but I cant find multiple installs. Doesn't bother me that I used a couple keys, I just wondering how to get that little space back on my hard drive. Any ideas?
  11. Spoilers ahead for those who have not played the mission Yeah I am sure I have forgotten the number of tanks because what you described there is pretty much spot on to what I tried to do. I kept my forces together, led with my KTs, started from the right and swept left. Got most everything on the map except for the pesky AT guns and JS tanks on other side of the river/creek on the other side of the map. They just kept pinging away at me eventually my KTs front armor looked grey from all the hit decals when they started as the tan camo
  12. Very much agree about the kindergarten to higher learning. CMx1 I could mop the floor with the AI; now I cheer when I get a tactical victory. As you can see, I'm a terrible player.
  13. I agree and understand, just saying how nice of a feature that was and it added a little bit of knowledge for me on some weapon systems I didn't understand or know about before.
  14. The thing I miss the most moving forward into the new engine is the information screen we had in game when we selected a unit and hit the enter key. I liked seeing the armor penetrating abilities of bazooka at different ranges,I liked seeing the hit probabilities and kill chances. I know it's long gone but any thoughts on bringing those back in new engines someday?
  15. I believe that is a correct assumption. It was a few days ago but it was a battle with many tanks. About 8 king Tigers, 8 Panthers and a few panzer IVs and a couple companies of infantry.
