  1. I installed CMRT 1.03 installation and got that to work (got to menu and such). Then installed the engine upgrade and activated it. No go after that. Not even when uninstalling and re-installing that plain 1.03 installer again. Installed now CMBN 3.12 full install. It takes my CM engine 3 serial and CF+MG serials. Gives splash screen and quits. Does not take original CMBN key (engine 1). This is the most borked copy protection in recent history...tho there has been some others... 😀 But this is freakin annoying. 🤬 Oh well, there are plenty of other games to play.
  2. I have added exception. No help. I'll try CMBN 3.12 installation too. My original purchase of CMBN was May 27 2011. I have purchased all add-ons before 2014 except 3.0 upgrade 2014 and 4.0 upgrade 2019. I have now struggled 2 days with these games..and going to give up after today. I don't have time for this $h*t and frankly never experienced this with any other game. I have ticket open for this too. NOT a good customer experience.
  3. CM2 series is one of the most inconvenient games to install. Never experienced this sort of annoyance before. Have not been able to make my CMBN+CF+MG+4.0+4.02 to work, no matter what. Managed to get CMRT 1.03 work..and then upgraded to latest...and it stopped working. Pity that these games are such utter PITA to get to work, I give up and just play CMBB, that installed and plays just fine...
  4. German SMG "companies" were mentioned also in Soviet accounts of Stalingrad. I bet they were ad hoc units and not within formal TOE. One apparently managed to infiltrate neat Tsuikov HQ vie sewers but was fought off.
  5. Thanks! I had same issue. Will install everything first and see if situation improves.
  6. Old military adage is: "Obstacle not covered by fire is not an obstacle."
  7. Reason the splendid Finnish artillery was almost absent from movie was historical. During Winter War Finnish army had massive shortage of artillery rounds. Thus, like depicted in movie, they didn't have much to shoot. Also, Lahti L-39 didn't make it into Winter War, apart from few prototypes. This was amended during peace between Winter and Continuation War and during latter. Artillery was crucial in stopping Red Army during battlers of summer 1944. I have special interest into this movie since one of my distant relatives is depicted in it. Also the unit that they relieve from front line when they come to front first time was the one where my grandfather fought during Winter War.
  8. PBEM and other multiplayer modes require fixed schedule and decent amount time. So, it's not really an alternative for casual games that I can play whenever I have time. Though I am member of CM multiplayer club, it'd still be nice to have AI even on level of CMx1.
  9. Kind of example that stopped me quickly for playing QB vs AI was when I tested in RT what AI would pick when I had 1 King Tiger and 1 Tiger. AI picked loads of BA-armoured cars... Lot of things in CMx2 seem to me really "ass-backwards" compared to CMx1. Thus, my enthusiasm with CMBN/MG/RT is about 5-10% compared to e.g. CMBB. I only play scenarios in CMx2 nowadays.
  10. That is very possible. I have seen some "odd curveballs", but not made any tests on this. Don't even know how to test that anyways.
  11. It's been discussed a lot, with Panther as a case. It's very rare, but can happen.
  12. Indeed...2-man turret was damn awful disadvantage. That is, if against tank with 3-man turret.
  13. BF ****ed up UI after CMx1 in my opinion. It's the hubris of success. "We do it as we wish." Not that it's not moddable, just that it's the attitude. I still have CM:BO,BB,AK..CM:BN,CW,MG,RT.
  14. Soon everyone will be cursing them and demanding a patch! (That is if things go as they normally do...)
  15. Ampulomet in CMBB is great in setting wheat fields on fire. That was about only thing it is good for..
