  1. Such salacious sanguinary shedding of lives is our utmost desire. Bring it forth in glorious pictorial fashion! Let us drown in red mist blackened by the lead of a thousand autocannons!
  2. Arrrg! hors d'oeuvres. Friggin' cliff hanger. You can't just leave it at that! Keep 'em coming. Great stuff in the AAR. I appreciate the time you take to create it.
  3. Hi Bil. Lurker here raising my head. It looks like the JT has a hull down position. Is that true? Though it also seems large enough that a good portion of its upper body is still visible to attacks. Also from your animated gif, it looks like one of your tanks took a shot at it on the move and missed. Which one was that, and how close were you to the JT? Do you have anything that can penetrate at current ranges? From what I've read, even its side armor is respectable. How close would you need to be to do that? Also, did the other tank next to the one that got hit stop moving in reverse due to the explosion of his buddy? Is it's morale so hammered that you aren't able to move it? What do you think the chances of that one on getting out alive? Great work on the AAR. I'm loving it.
  4. I'm getting the same thing as everyone else. I've had this problem for almost a year now when I upgraded CMBN and Commonwealth to version 3 back in December of 2014. Here's my post: http://community.battlefront.com/topic/117156-311-patch-doesnt-update-commonwealth-also-getting-crash/ I also filed a ticket at that time. I recommend anyone who has this problem to file a ticket with their helpdesk, because they were/are telling me that I'm pretty much the only one getting this. But clearly that isn't the case. I get the crash on Armor vs Armor when I'm the attacker on US. If I do Canadian Armor vs German Armor it's fine. I'm glad I'm not the only one, but would love to have a fix.
  5. Can someone at Battlefront please get back to me on this issue? I have an open ticket that was placed in Hold status back in January 2015: http://battlefront.mojohelpdesk.com/mytickets/show/9030072I've been very patient. I work for a software company myself, so I understand how bugs can sometimes linger, but even this is getting unbelievable. I was told that my issue would be looked at once a certain developer was freed up from working on Black Sea. Well, Black Sea has been out since January, and no one has gotten back to me with an update. I would at least expect, "Hey I looked at it and I can't duplicate it". It's been crickets. I tried responding directly to my email thread on the above open ticket in April, and I didn't get a response. It feels like my issue has been put in a water-tight ammo box and buried deep in the ground so I'm responding here hoping this'll get some traction.
  6. Yay, it's not just me. I suppose I shouldn't be glad, but Battlefront Techsupport is having a hard time figuring out this one. I've had a ticket open since middle of December and they're not sure what's causing it. But now that there's more than one person getting this, it might help them find out what's going on. The closest I can get to a working complete package is to install the upgrades separately and only up to version 2.12. If I install the 3.0 upgrade or the 3.11 patch I get the game crash. Quick Battle crash for me happens if I choose US for the Allies and Armor only as the type of quick battle. If I choose to play Canada and Armor Only, for example, it works fine.
  7. Thanks Hister. I did FINALLY get it downloaded (four attempts I think) and I chose the Activate Modules link from my desktop. The Commonwealth module is now showing up and it's showing I have version 3.11, so that's all good. But I still get my original executable error (see first post above) whenever I do a quick battle and choose Armor Only for both teams and set automatic purchase. Not sure if there's anything I can do to clear that up.
  8. I've restarted the game a bunch so I know it's not that. I'm fairly certain I activated it because it was active before I installed the 3.11 patch. Anyway, I tried to download this new 3.0 upgrade and Moon is indeed correct, it is a HUGE download, weighing in at 9 GB. The problem is that it needs to be broken up somehow into smaller downloadable chunks. I keep getting a network error on this huge file, and then I have to retry and do yet another 12-hour download. Uggg.
  9. What I mean is the 3.11 patch should update everything, but it isn't. The Commonwealth module doesn't show as active in the game when I activate this patch. I'll try downloading the updated 3.0 upgrade. Thanks for the tip.
  10. I'm getting a game crash when I try to run a Quick Battle with Allied as the attacker and Armor Only. It works fine if I choose a diff type of attacking force or even choose Axis armored as the attacker. I noticed also that after installing the 3.11 patch, it doesn't update the Commonwealth module. I purchaced the CMBN + Commonwealth bundle (v1.10) a while back and then I bought the 2.00 and 3.00 upgrades so I could get everything up to the latest. But it's never worked quite right. Not sure what to do. I've tried reinstalling numerous times using the recommended install instructions all with the same result.

I've filed a ticket too, but the person who was helping me has slowed up in responding so hoping someone has experienced the same thing here and knows a fix. Thanks.
  11. Nevermind. I think it worked. Just saw this post: http://www.battlefront.com/community/showpost.php?p=1548990&postcount=2
  12. Okay. Okay. I turned off NAV and ran the update and activated it. Everything seemed to work except that when I launch the game, it says I'm running version 2.2, not 3.0 like I would expect. Ideas?
  13. I just purchased the 2.0 and 3.0 upgrades. I get a WS.Reputation.1 threat from Norton Antivirus when I attempt to download the 3.0 upgrade patch. I'm concerned because my 2.0 upgrade patch installed fine without being flagged, but the 3.0 upgrade does get flagged. Here are the file details. Is my concern unfounded?

  14. This might be of interest. I managed to get CMBFN to run in a border-less windowed mode, using this free 3rd party app, so I figured I'd share my experience. Here's where to get the app: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/WindowedBorderlessGaming/discussions How I got it to work: 1) Create a shortcut to your game. Modify the shortcut and add "-windowed" (without quotes) onto the end of the shortcut's pathway. 2) Start the above third party app, and create a new window. Define it's position and resolution. Example: In my case, my laptop has a resolution of 1600 x 900, and I defined a window to attach to that was slightly less than that. So, 1550 x 890. That way I could easily mouse down and my task bar would appear and wouldn't be obscured by the game. 3) Using the shortcut, run CMBN, and load or start a game. Get all the way into it, like to the setup or orders phase where you can click on units. 4) Inside CM, press F3 to attach it to the window defined by the app. Notes: Your mileage may vary, but in my tests of CMBN it's best to use a window resolution that's close to your machine's native resolution for the window or else your mouse cursor is offset and you'll find it hard to select units/buttons. Even with all this, the game did seem to respond a little better in non-windows mode.
  15. Heh. No, I WAS doing real time. Thanks for letting me playtest. Definitely a wild map! Looking forward to the final.
