  1. I have given up on the Battle Pack upload with the 3.12 patch included for now. Now, I am trying to just upload a 3.12 patch for CMBN and I get a page with patches for CMFB 1.01 and 1.02 and at the top of the page it says ERROR: Unauthorized Access
  2. I downloaded the latest 3.0 CMBN installer and ran it. It gave me CMCW, CMMG and the vehicle pack at 3.11 with no activation keys required. I have tried installing the Battle Pack 1 that includes the 3.12 patch. This ends badly with all the shortcuts gone and a no go. So I go to the patches page and try to download the 3.12 patch and I get this ERROR: Unauthorized Access Any ideas?\ Pete
  3. I believe the culprit is a 3rd party sound/ speaker program called Nahimic. It's redundant and now deleted.
  4. OK, I believe this is a conflict with 3 programs that run on my new PC. When I shut them down in the task manager at start up, as I normally do the game starts normally. Still have a flaky CMBN install though.
  5. This is what I show in event viewer and all these events started on the 30th (yesterday) evening. As far as updates and the ability to use a restore point. I have an itunes installment on the 23rd that was prior to me installing my CM games. So I can say for certain that I had no updates that may have started this error. Now last night after the program started working again for no apparent reason I did run an update for my nVidia drivers. I will now do a restore and remove the nVidia update.

  6. OK, here is the stupid part last night CMBN did start after I posted and received the first reply, however the QB's are all all screwed up. Formations are listed as actual weapons and I only have random allies and axis to choose from very weird. However, CMBS, CMFB and CMRT all started normally and played correctly. This morning I checked and I am getting the JIT error again, so back to square one. I will look at the restore points.
  7. I had all but the optional's installed last week and all of my installed CM's ran fine. This error showed up today. I saw some posts with enabling/ disabling the JIT but they did not make a lot of sense to me.
  8. Not sure what I have done now but setting up this new Windows 7 64-bit has been a pain in may ass. Finally got most of CM uploaded and playing and now this ugly error. Seems to happen only on my CM installs. The other few games I have still run properly.
  9. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/h5upen3badaydta/pQlhVACgc_ My H2H simply stopped working yesterday. I click the exe and nothing. It never even shows on the task manager so it is not starting. Not sure what to do? Pete
  10. I can see the commercial now........................."Have you or a loved one been injured by canola oil? If so you may be entitled to compensation".
  11. The compiled list of PBEM types: Manic/Depressive turn Guy- His enthusiasm for PBEM games is based solely on his success and failures. If he is prosperous he will send turns at an accelerated rate. If he is failing, his rate of returned turns will be diminished or cease all together. Once the turns stop coming, this animal is very challenging to locate. Some believe this creature will withdraw from the PBEM battlefield altogether or go in search of other opponents. A player’s turn production is proportionate to his success. (Successful turns + perceived victory=higher rate of return). Tiger/Panther Guy "zoo directors (credit Shorker)" - Now this is a fascinating creature. He will forgo all military manner of combined arms and tactical doctrine. He will invest all his capitol in expensive weapons, albeit not many of them, with no supporting infantry or artillery. He struggles to cover the map with so few assets but man he looks good doing it. Ounce he loses one or two of these expensive beasts, he usually withdrawals and calls for a ceasefire. Tiger/ Panther guy seems to romanticize that his superior tanks will be assaulted by mindless hordes of inferior tanks across a 2000m billiard table. He fantasizes that his tanks blaze away at the hapless attackers and he achieves a 10:1 kill ratio, leaving the battlefield littered with dozens of Sherman’s. After all he has superior optics, armor and weaponry. Great expressions of surprise have been observed as well as the gnashing of teeth and gouging of eye sockets when this creature loses a superior weapon an inferior one. Elite/Crack team Guy-This animal is rare but does exist. Fueled by books and CD’s on “Sniper’s, Sniper’s and more Sniper’s) this creature cannot get enough precision shooting and surgical removal of threats at 1000m. He watches the Sniper Channel (Military Channel) and all manner of Whisper Channels (Hunting Channels). He is convinced that one man and his rifle can decapitate an enemy consistently from 500m and win a war. He is known to also possess scout, observer and AT teams with exceptional abilities. In the event that a volume of fire is needed he will resort to artillery strikes or cheap rockets, which are never as timely and accurate as imagined. Transformation Warfare in WWII will always be an impossible goal for this animal. Once his few elite weapons teams begin to suffer loses this animal will typically withdrawal to Operation Shockforce or Call of Duty. God of War Man-As we all know artillery is the greatest killer on the battlefield. It is thought this creature believes that by peppering the map with artillery and efficient use of TRP’, he will crush his unseen enemy quickly. Should the enemy escape annulation by artillery he will typically set elaborate defenses of mines, AT guns, specialized teams and fortifications. Again if his tactics fail he will usually withdrawal. The Unbroken Ignorant (credit Shorker)" - This type of player never wins a battle (or only very, very seldom), he doesn't seem to know anything about tactics, combined weapons and gameplay and he is resistant against any good advice but he always stands up again and is asking for revenge. Flower Arranger (credit Yenodathon) - a preoccupation bordering on a fetish, to examine all the nice graphics and pieces and arrange them on setup in beautiful and artistic ways away from any danger without any regard to doctrine or tactics and then proceed to protect them at all cost from the opposing player's line of sight. This player is not interested in combat but the collection of pretty, shiny things and a rather gleeful satisfaction in watching, turn after turn, a growing sense of alarm and frustration from the opposing player as nothing seems to happen. The apogee of delight for the Flower Arranger is watching the aimless and uncoordinated rush of the opposing player's assets in every direction in a futile attempt to find something while remaining hidden in original form proving that ugliness can only enhance the pristine perfection of something heavenly on a CM map. Professional PBEM Man-Truly a rare find. This creature is well versed in combined arms warfare. His penchant for tactics is only exceeded by his ability to return PBEM turns at a reasonable rate. He is truly a worthy opponent, a man who has studied his history and tactics. His turns are usually followed with interesting email comments and notes. He shares his observations and experiences with his opponent, usually slathered with some self-deprecating humor and personal history. While personable and likable, this man is deadly. It has been noted that he does not coexist for long with all the creatures listed above. Perhaps some of you have observed these creatures and/or phenomena. If so can you confirm and/or dispute my findings?
