    Fradulent Credit Card Transactions

    I opened a ticket. I don't know who Steve is but If I did I would have contacted him directly like you did. Here is why I think it has something to do with the online purchases of my friend and I. Around Xmas he bought games from both Battlefront and another company. He used his wife's card for the Battlefront purchases but his card for the other company. The fradulent charges appeared on his wife's card. I bought the VP and BP using my credit card just after new years and fradulent charges appeared on my card as well. If I am correct about Battlefront changing servers recently then it is too much of a coincidence that including you we now have 3 reported incidents. My only other credit card usage in December was my monthly automatic charge from my cell phone company and a online purchase from a another game company but that occurred after the fradulent charges.

    Fradulent Credit Card Transactions

    Ok, I will. It just occurred to me that Battlefront changed servers, I think.
  3. In the last three weeks both me and a friend purchased Battlefront products paying for them with credit cards. Specifically, CMBN Big Bundle, and for me the Vehicle and Battle Pack. In early January, both our credit cards were hit with fradulent transactions. Luckily we both check our balances regularly so we reported them to our credit card providers. It is too much of a coincidence that we both were hit, so I am letting you know through the forum (not sure where I should have reported this) so that you can check the security of your ordering system because it may be compromised. Thanks.
  4. I have one friend who has the VP and BP but another one who doesn't. I play PBEM with both. If I started a scenario from the BP are you saying that my second friend who doesn't have either the BP and VP could play that scenario? If that is the case then only one of us had to buy the VP and BP. What I was thinking is that although the BP and VP files are in his install they had to be activated by him purchasing both. Anyway, I could find out by starting one with my second friend to see what happens.
  5. Okay I picked up the BP and the VP. JoMc67, I may be wrong but including the scenarios that come with the BP there are a number of scenarios I downloaded at the depot that indicate you need the VP to play so you can't play against an opponent who doesn't have the VP. Anyway looking forward to checking out the new vehicles.

    Montelimar H2H Scenario

    I posted a comment at the Scenario site but for some reason it did not get posted. There is a major issue with this scenario. My friend and I are currently in to our second playing with me as the Germans again. In the first playing I surrendered before we got to the time of the scenario we are now at. When there was 36 minutes left in the scenario, the tank platoon reinforcement consisting of a single Panther appeared. I have now tried twice but no matter what movement plot I give to the Panther it moves to the green highlight exit hexes for the convoy and then disappears. It totally ignored movement plots as if the movement to the exit hexes is programmed in to the scenario. LiveNoMore, maybe you can let me know what is going on. Thanks.
  7. Thanks for the replies. I play at Warrior level. I currently don't have any saved files that I can forward to you but am playing 3 PBEM games. What I do when playing is first make sure I have not selected any units so that all spotted enemy units are shown. I then start clicking individual units to determine which ones are doing the spotting. I will let you know when I have this happen again.
  8. Currently, knocked out vehicles continue to able to spot enemy units. I know this is the case in CMBN and I assume it is true for CMFI and CMFB. In the scenario I am playing the only unit that can spot some of the enemy units is a halftrack that was knocked out early in the scenario. Hopefully this is corrected in the patch for Game Engine 4 so that knocked out vehicles will no longer be able to spot enemy units.

    Marder 1A5

    Thanks Howler, I went back and looked at the range and both Marders were closer than 400 meters. I guess the weapon they are using has stunned the crew of the Syrian tank because as I mentioned it has not yet fired back, thank goodness, or the Marders would be toast. I've put both in reverse while maintaining an armour arc of fire.

    Marder 1A5

    My friend and I are trying out the demo, specifically the Alamo scenario. I have two Marder 1A5 which indicate that they have the Milan 3 ATGM 6s. They have been firing at a Syrian tank for the last two minutes but not with the AT missiles so all their hits are bouncing off the Syrian tank but for some reason it has not returned fire. How do I get the Marders to use their AT missles? Thank you.
  11. The product screens for the above two indicate that no download is needed as long as I have the Commonwealth and Market Garden modules plus I have an up to date game. I do have both modules, and on my initial screen at the bottom right it shows "v4" and "Game Engine 4" so I assume that I have to do is purchase the above two packs and they will be activated. Am I correct? Thanks.
  12. Will a halftrack or armoured car trigger a anti tank mine? Thanks.

    I've been looking in the manuals for an explanation of the different levels of cover. By levels, I mean which ones afford the best protection and so on down to the least protection. For example does being in a house give a unit better protection then being in a foxhole? What about wooden bunkers which I assume wouldn't offer much protection from a tank's main weapon. If someone can tell me where I can find this information it would be much appreciated.
  14. I'm wondering what the experience of other people have had playing Montelimar. I am playing the Germans in a H2H against a friend of mine and can't believe the number of tanks the Americans have. It must be somewhere between 25 and 30. I've knocked out about a dozen mostly by infantry with panzerschreks and panzerfaust. I just lost the last of my 3 assault guns and still waiting for the panzer reinforcements but only 38 minutes left in the scenario. I hid my infantry behind buildings because the Yanks just advance in a line of tanks and keep blasting the buildings until they collapse at which point the infantry hiding behind them can't run fast enough. I did get a convoy off the map but it certainly seems like a real tough one for the Germans.

    CMFI Rome to Victory Bones

    In hindsight I should have known that RT was Red Thunder. I don't have Red Thunder. Thanks for the replies. Since Red Thunder covers the last year of the war I would be more interested in the earlier years of the eastern front. I am surprised Battlefront isn't working on that or a North African game like they had in the original Combat Mission series. However, I am very much looking forward to Rome to Victory. In my opinion, the current Combat Mission series is the gold standard for computer tactical warfare.
