    Looking to clear up some drive space on C:

    Thanks Iwas able to successfully move CM off of C and cleared about 21 GB of space. The data files were already on D:since when I originally set up windows I made sure My Documents, pictures, Videos would be saved on my D:/Data drive. Just windows and some software on C: Clearing up the space still did not fix my photoshop problem which irks me because I have 64 GB of RAM and scratch disks. But that is for the Photoshop forum folks to helpme with. Thanks
  2. I need to clear up some space on my Windows boot drive (C:) as it is getting full and that may be causing me some grief with running Adobe Photoshop. I can see that I have 21.3 GB of drive space being used by Battlefront and I am asking if I can move or delete any of these files to free up some space on my c: drive. I have tons of free space on a multitude of other drives and in fact the way I originally set up Windows 7 to run was with my user account on the D: drive (My Documents, Desktop, Games, etc.). It would appear that CMBN, CMFI, and CMRT are saved onto my D: Drive (not shown here), while CMFB, CMBS, CMFI (again), and CMRT (again) are saved on my C: drive. Game files for all five games are saved on the D: drive. On the image below, the Data directories contain brz files. So on to my question(s): 1. I believe that I can safely delete the CMFI and CMRT files from the C: drive as there are also on the D-drive 2. With regard to the other two sets of game files (CMBS and CMFB), can I simply move them onto the D:dive, update my shortcut links and the games will work? Are there also registry settings that need to be changed? Thanks,
  3. As of yesterday I am receiving this error message from CMH and don't know what to do to have it go away, nor if it actually affects the functionality of the application (see attached screen capture-which does not attach. Error message is "Oops, couldn't update my CM version catalogue, so CM 'Installation Info' might be out of date"). I loaded the CM games onto my laptop and also set up Dropbox on the laptop while continuing to return PBEM game turns on my main PC. I could see that Dropbox on my laptop was being updated with no problem as I was changing game files on my main PC. The problem started after I told CMH where the individual game files were located in Dropbox. I then started seeing multiple screen notifications on the laptop, pretty much 100% stating that so and so has modified, deleted, placed chat files over and over again. There was also one of those pop-up screens with a a bunch of text and a call back error or something (I did not pay attention to what it was). Then the weird thing is this exact same problem has propagated to my main PC as well. Can anyone help? Thanks
  4. I am playing CMFB Hot Time in Hatten as a PBEM and on occasions I am experiencing a problem opening game files. This is a massive scenario with PBEM Save files around 130 MB in size, with about 15-20 minutes left in the scenario. I don't think my opponent has experienced the problem. Were are running game engine 4.0. Here is what happens. I open the game turn and immediately upon entering my password the game kicks into the save file screen, as if I have finished my turn and am ready to send it back to him. There is no visible micro-flash of the battlefield or anything, just immediately into the save turn screen. I ask my opponent to replay the previous turn and things generally work out for a while after that. On one occasion I believe I went back and replayed my previous turn and sent to him to get it to work. I cannot say if thisis happening with other games in the CM family or if it started after teh Engine 4.0 upgrade. My memory for details like that is becoming poor with age. Any ideas out there? Has anyone encountered or heard of something like this before? Should this get a ticket?

    Any news about CMFI 4.0 release

    Thanks, it was pointing to the wrong install directory.

    Any news about CMFI 4.0 release

    I am having an issue. I have activated the base game, engine 2.0, engine 3.0, gustav line and the version 4 upgrade. However, when I select Ply from the activation screen I get a windows error "CM Fortress Italy.exe has stopped working". When I run CMFI off my shortcut it starts but shows Version 1.20. I recall this problem back in January when I upgraded the other games, but don't remember how I fixed it up. Anyone recall what now needs to be done?

    bug report

    Just upgraded CMBN to 4.0 and so I don't know if this is specific to 4.0 or is something that was around inearlier versions. Marder 3 with 105 mm gun, the crew speaks American. I have save file. This is a PBEM, and my opponent's turn was saved in 3.12 but I was able to open and play the file in 4.0, which I thought was not possible. Thought I'd mention that if important.

    AT gun bug

    Tons of them. Which one do you want to see? When reinforcements arrive? Later? Most recent?

    Wargamer 2016 Year end Review

    At the very bottom of the article it says "This article discusses games that are published and/or developed by members of the Slitherine Group. For more information, please see the About Us page." I seem to recall years ago reading that the wargamer site was associated with Matrix Games and Slitherine and the About Us link in the article confirms the relationship with the Slitherine Group.

    AT gun bug

    I have the same problem in a game I am playing. Three of these came in as reinforcements on half-tracks. No sign of an AT gun. Crews are dismounted now, gun shows limbered, but no gun visible anywhere.
  12. Unfortunately that does not seem to have worked. Can one of you send him a message via the help command to check out this forum?
  13. If the Help Tab you are referring to is through bthe software then no because the error message pops up when I try to start the program and the program does not start.
  14. As of today I just started getting this error message: Traceback (most recent call last): File "<string>", line 6, in <module> File "__main__.py", line 128, in <module> File "__main__cmh__.py", line 125, in <module> File "controller.py", line 51, in __init__ File "appstate.py", line 52, in __init__ File "permadict.py", line 29, in __init__ File "permadict.py", line 79, in load ValueError: File not in a supported format No idea why. Powered off PC yesterday and now this message. Running 1.6.2 but downloaded latest version (1.7.5) and same message appears. Running Windows 7 Ultimate X64
