  1. I tried that but didn't work for me. Thanks for the suggestion. Yes, file size is the same for both of us. Thanks for checking Ian.
  2. I agree about the file size but to the best of my memory the size have been increasing in my previous games also. Hitting a maximum then staying there or maybe they get reduced a bit closer to the end. Would be great if someone else with a lot of PBEM experience could comment on that. A lot of units have moved over the bridges, but in the given turn they have already passed so no current movement on any bridges. I understand the frustration of creating something that does not work all the way to the end, but most likely this is a one in a million situation. Just wish we knew what caused it. Looking forward to that new bigger project, would love to try it out once its ready
  3. Guess it has always gone so smoothly I never really thought about it before. The save files have been increasing from the beginning. File 60 is 90MB and file 102 is 120MB (I have seen this big save files before). I have contacted helpdesk and sent the file to them. Hope it can help for the future. The CTD occurs at about 50% and sometimes around 70%. Thanks again for your aid.. this really is the best community, for content and for friendly and helpful members. I really enjoyed the scenario and think we were not to fare from a cease fire. Im pretty sure my German opponent would take Sevenig town, he was well on his way with only scattered Infantry resistance left. His assault was slowing down in general as the US artillery took its toll (I got good use of the TRPs). Most panthers still active though with only one Hell cat left. Well end it as a draw, looking forward to the next battle.
  4. Thanks for making it and sharing. Really appreciate the tips for a possible resolution. Not more combat or movement than the other turns, if anything we are running out of units because of the carnage! I have tried removing mods, lowering graphics, going back and redoing turns. I have sent the file for others to try with the same CTD result. Neither of us have seen anything like this before. I just tried to load my oppos files and one thing struck me, Im not sure if Im just ignorant but I thought there is always a bar computing the next turn for both parties in a PBEM? Running his turn and hitting the red button send me direct to save the PBEM to outgoing email. Is that as it should?
  5. @rocketman Great map and great game, unfortunately I and my oppo get a CTD at file 102 when I try to compute the next turn. Anyone that has finished the game?
  6. Hi! Thanks for trying to load and compute the file. Do you have dropbox? An email that I can invite to share the file? Its about 120 MB in size.

      The file loads alright but the computing of the next turn gives me a CTD. Thanks for trying it, really appreciate it.

      Gives me also a ctd, try to contact support perhaps they can fix the savefile

      Thanks for checking, appreciate it! 

  7. Im well into a big PBEM game in CMFB with my regular opponent (file 102), when I end the latest turn and the real time action starts to compute I get a CTD after the bar hits 70 percent or so. I have never experienced this before. The files are quite large, around 50 mb, but I could dropbox it if some tester would like to have a go with it. Really hope it can be resolved.

    CMFB CTD when computing turn

    Thanks, I will PM you.

    CMRT Module 1 Bones

    Much CM goodness coming our way! Great news indeed Steve, any chance of seeing ppsh mixed in for German troops and panzer fausts captured for the Soviets?
  10. Thanks for the link! I got my copy a couple days ago, from Swedish book retailer Bokus for 40 US. But indeed, most retailers stil only list it as preorder.
  11. Jasons books are second to none. I just got my copy of the reprinted and highly sought after Island of Fire. Stackpole books are reprinting and for 49.95 US, its a steal. Dont miss this opertunity to get your hands on it.

    Hell let loose

    I wont post any links due to forum rules, but Im curious to know if there is anyone else that is backing this ww2 First person shooter on kickstarter? Should be easy to find if you search for Hell let loose. I think it looks really interesting. Something to do when waiting for CM pbem turns to arrive
  13. Im guessing this is a bug, not sure if its known though. Im playing the second battle in the Foiling Fustian campaign, and the AS42 scout cars with 47mm AT guns show up as available on map artillery assets. Clicking the artillery asset icon highlights the unit on the board. Is this a bug, or am I missing something?
  14. Not a very effective configuration but a very cool detail. With a TRP its possible to order air burst missions.

    Some Italian thoughts

    Indeed a great scenario! Illustration of the problems that can arise when not able to split squads. Here I have some Italian black shirts that I want to take cover in a dried riverbed. Only haft the squad moves there and the other half insists on placing them selves on the top.

    Updating Shock Force

    Me too! I hope CMSF2 does well and that we might see a new module down the line bringing the French and drones etc.
  17. A great game/simulation and I cant wait for CMSF2 to be released. Its only the advances to the engine that keeps me from going back at the moment (with the promise of CMSF2). I much prefer the setting to CMBS and the possibility to model so many of the modern day conflicts.
  18. Thats not very desirable but it would take some effort to code, or the scenario designer will just make sure not to add aircraft when not appropriate. Same goes for QB, restrain and dont play those who are gamey bastidges.

    Huge Bug - "Möbelwagen"

    The animation should probably not be this way, but for AI reasons the vehicles need to have no restrictions for their elevation of weapons.
  20. Thanks for clearing that up for me sypox. I will report back here once I have had them fire a mission. Very limited HE stock so will probably be to limited effect.
  21. I really miss the possibility for nr 6!
  22. I really like how some German units in CMFI have the Italian SMG (Beretta M38) mixed with MP40. Would love to see this reintroduced to CMRT with the PPSh 41 in the next module. The eastern front just isn't the same without it

    Some Italian thoughts

    I wish we were able to split the Italian squads, maybe not in so many fashions as other forces but at least into two 5 man groups. I understand what BF wants to achieve but I think that would still be done with the organization alone and some restriction in the splitting options (no scout, assault, AT options). As the simulation / in game results suffers a bit IMHO with the squads always forced so close together. Fingers crossed. Im really enjoying the Foiling Fustian campaign at the moment that mixes FJ and Italian forces. Really looking forward to Rome to Victory!

    Ost Front Books

    It was a facebook link, maybe that screwed it up. The book is called Panzer Krieg (volume 1) German armoured operations at Stalingrad. Covers the 103rd, 129th and 160th Panzer battalions.
