  1. Yeah I agree that any required libraries should be included. There might not be any libraries needed or they might be included, I for one didn't have any issues with it. At the same time conflicts with existing software on a machine is always a possibility. The reason I I point to it, is that the exception / error is seemingly in a file 'C:\edisk\Source\SDK\PC\GS5_Intf.cpp. AFAIK that's not a file that comes with CMSF 2. While googling for the file, I found this which might be of use:
  2. If I had to guess it's something in the mentioned visual studio library. You could try updating those (especially the C++ variants if you can find different ones). Or perhaps you have some visual C++ debugging software running in the background?
  3. Nice setup you have there! Assertion error sounds like some initialization tests not succeeding. Never seen it before with regards to CM. I'm on Windows 10 / GTX1080 / I7 7700K / 16GB / m.2 Samsung evo. Only thing I noticed about your setup that's conceptually different is the fact you have 2 video cards. Did you try to reinstall already? I have windows defender running without it taking any issues with CM.
  4. Thing is in a QB they don't seem to have them either (see my post above).
  5. Unfortunately don't have the time now to give this a proper reply. I just checked in quickly from work during lunch. Anyway I can try. The logic comes from geopolitics: without the military power projection and global inluence from it the US, current world leader, misses the 'options on the table' to give their words more 'stronk' meaning. Without military power to back you up, how is the US going to defend it economic interests / status quo? Actually, without the military/power and the influence that gives one can question whether the current position of the dollar would be sustainable on the short term even, and from there the whole balance sheet of the US.
  6. Well on a micro level those economies will surely feel some impact. Not sure about the macro economic impact. I am sure though, regarding the macro economic impact, of having military bases worldwide. Without all those military bases (and carriers) and the power those project, the economic power of the US would be a lot less.
  7. With all due respect, I think you're interpreting more in Frenchy's comments than intended. The thing about 'running towards us when we shoot them and sons of satan' does sound 'actionhero' like. While USMC combat troops and especially their elite force recon, are probably among the best trained soldiers on the world, they aren't superhuman. Not that I think that you think they are, but the text does sort of implicate something like it. Devildogs, sons of satan, etc.
  8. Interesting to read your experience! We send feedback to @Bil Hardenberger via PM. I did enjoy the experience not knowing objectives. As the US my idea was to aggressively take and hold the bridge area and hill. @BletchleyGeek made sure the holding part of this idea turned out to be quite a challenge :).
  9. While I did enjoy the dropbox/ google drive links, since my own install is sitting on a HD in a computer that hasn't been turned on for over a year, it seems obvious that the durability of such links are limited. If everyone that tries and uses a mod or has played a scenario/campaign successfully in CMSF2, checks whether it's on CMMODS/TFGM and uploads it if it isn't, it could already make a big difference. That's a little less daunting then uploading a whole collection of mods and scenario's, one at a time. Another thing: I guess we should upload such files under CMSF mods/scenario's, instead of CMSF2 mods/scenario's? I'm willing to 'request to become an author' and upload some scenario's / campaigns I have played from an author that doesn't seem to be around anymore. Edit: although it would be good to know whether any moves from the repository are still going to happen, since that might duplicate efforts. Edit 2: A sticky post with a template of how to go forth with something like this (with screens/description of an example upload) will perhaps make it probably stick better than 'just a comment' in the screenshot thread.
  10. Enjoy! Now you can get working on that campaign 😜
  11. That's a good question, which does indeed depend on where you live. I think I should have been more clear. Now I will try to keep this as simple as possible but that's going to be difficult due to ambiguity: Debit card = a card used to spend your money with a bank. Credit card = a card used to spend the banks money, which they then loan to you at an interest rate. Both (common like VISA/Mastercard) credit and debit cards come with a Name, expiry date, 16digit number and a CVC code. With this information, you can make online transactions without needing anything else (although some now have the secureCode and or a PIN). The problem is that if someone else gets hold of that info, they can make online transactions with your card without needing anything else. Because (online) purchases on a credit card (contrary to debit cards) are almost always insured, it's more wise to use a credit card for such online transactions. The drawback is that you will have a credit with your bank over which they are entitled interest (if you don't pay them back directly). So, if you want to make an online transaction a credit card is usually preferable over a debit card, since you are insured in case the vendor doesn't deliver or your card is hijacked. The risk in using a debit card for online transactions is that in case of a fraud, you do lose your money (on your bank account). Where in case of a credit card, the purchase is insured anyway. I'm not 100% sure whether banks normally refund debit card frauds, but I'd expect a lot more hassle. And, like @BletchleyGeek explained about the way renting cars work (or hotel reservations) is more practical with a credit card. There are also other systems to make online transactions. One option that's often used in Netherlands is 'iDEAL'. With iDeal you don't use a debit or credit card, but instead a login from your bank and a two factor system such as a card reader (reading an ATM card) or a SMS service. It's coupled with your bank account and only allows 'debit' transactions; money you already have on your account. Unless I make an international online purchase from a vendor I don't really trust, I prefer using debit transactions. There is almost no risk of fraud, don't need the insurance, can't spend money I don't have/can't forget to reimburse the bank directly, don't have to pay interest. Since the system offers a two factor authentication, it is safe. If I need to do an online transaction for which I want the insurance my (mastercard) offers, I'll use my credit card. It rarely does happen though, because any purchases I make in The Netherlands are already subject to consumer law which offers enough protection for me and I don't need the credit card insurance.. Edit: the 'normal' bank card that my bank offers me, is an ATM (debit) card and isn't able to be used like a 'debit card' for online transactions. Edit2: Paypal is much more safe compared to entering your credit card details on any random site, as your credit card details aren't all over the pace. Just make sure your paypal account has a strong password.
  12. It's as safe as your account password. I'd consider PayPal itself quite safe, given their size and the services they offer. If 'we' think that PayPal isn't safe, they'll be out of business. Where I live (Netherlands) we have ATM cards and two-factor system for online debit transactions (or any other banking transaction). It usually involves a phone with sms / app service or a card reader. This system has been in place for at some 10 years now? I don't think any local banks offer debit cards that function like credit cards, but not sure. They might offer them, but it's not general use. The chances for fraud are much smaller with the two factor system. At the moment I have actually not even activated my credit card due to the fact that nowadays I'm able to use the online 2 factor system for almost anything (paypal, steam, etc). ATM card skimming has been a thing for quite a while, with banks taking action to prevent it. Every creditcard or ATM card has a chip on it; it almost always requires a pin nowadays. The latest thing is small payments using ATM card, without having to put in a pincode (+ wireless). I have a cardholder with some tinfoil in it, just to make sure it can't be skimmed wirelessly. Although I recently heard that that hasn't actually happened in practice yet, just in labatories. To say it differently; it seems anti fraud in the US is quite behind how it's handled here. At least in the financial sector.

  14. If it's something with the Battlefront website, I wouldn't typically expect your merchant account to be compromised but rather something wrong at the host or some standard app suite level. It's all speculation though. The top 10 web vulnerabilities of 2017: https://www.owasp.org/images/7/72/OWASP_Top_10-2017_%28en%29.pdf.pdf
