  1. I appoligize for my last post. I like your games and enjoy them very much. I have been on the receiving end of helpdesk inquiries for 35 years and I don't appreciate it when jerks(me) get irate. I will figure this out for myself. Thanks again and I'm sorry for my attitude.
  2. I am doing everything in my power not to unload on you. SO.. I appreciate your help but nothing is working. I went to the help site but it tells me nothing. WHAT is the name of the file I am suppose to copy and send to you and what is the name of the folder it is in? I have shut off all protection to my laptop. I click on get offline license and the computer freezes. I have to go to task manager to end the process. If you can't get my game to work because of this license routine then what do I do? I have no time or patience for this kind of petty horse****. But I do have plenty of money. If I buy another download of Gold and unistall the original and install the new download, will the damn thing get a license so I can use it?
  3. it is a new expensive laptop provided by the agency. There isn't anything wrong with it. I am not unfamiliar with computers. I maintain the ones at the 911 agency. We just virtualized 16 servers down to three servers and did Equalogic storage, complicated backup procedures, made Outlook work on VMware, etc. But I have no idea what I am trying to do with this license. What file am I trying to copy and send to you?
  4. I appreciate your reply but this is impossible to figure out. Why did Global Conflict license without a hitch and now when I try to license Gold I get the error message? But that aside I went to the license screen and clicked on "get offline License". I read the instructions and step #1 is "Save license request to file" I clicked on that 10 minutes ago and there is still an hourglass symbol in place of the mouse cursor and nothing is happening. Why do you do this to paying customers? I bought the game and I can't play it. You have no idea how aggravating this is.
  5. sorry to bump this up but I'm heading out on my trip soon and I was wondering if anyone at Battlefront has any ideas on how I license Gold on my laptop?
  6. Hi, I am going on a trip and I want to put Golobal Conflict Gold on my laptop. I already have it on two pc's at home. So... I unlicensed Global Conflict and I unlicensed Global Conflict Gold on one of my PC's at home. I installed Global COnflict, the patch and Global Conflict Gold on my laptop. I launched Global conficlt and it asked me to licenses it. I put in my number and whola, it worked. I closed the program. I then launceh Global Conflict gold and it asked me for the license key. I put in my key for Gold and I get an error "Unable to get or install a license--Retrieval of license failed with error code = -12" Any ideas on how I can get this to work. I won't even editorialize about how much I detest these licenses.
  7. Okay I sent the two files. If you don't receive them for some reason let me know.
  8. I have the save before the broken save and the save that was given the wrong timestamp if you want them. Probably not worth the trouble unless you are just curious.
  9. Hi, This is not a big deal but I thought I'd report it. I am playing Gold v1.01 the main scenario that starts in 1939. I was saving the April 1941 turn ( I had saved each turn up to that point because I am paranoid) and when I saved it it gave a date of July 1944. Hmm, I thought that was odd and so I stopped the game and tried to load that save and it did it but the map graphics consisted of black and white checkerboard squares. I lost that one turn and had to repeat it but everything else seems fine. First time I have ever had an issue with the save command so it may be a one-time occurance.
  10. WOW!!! Thank you very much! I didn't expect such a comnprehensive and useful reply. I really appreciate the time and effort you spent documenting all of that information. Larry
  11. HI, I am playing Gold. I'm trying to improve my understanding of the game. There are never enough MPP's to go around so I need to know what to spend the excess on. Between buying units and replenishing losses there is only a small aount left for research and dipolmacy. I have been playing the Strategic Command series for a long time and so far I have never spent any MPP's on diplomacy. I always play as the Axis. Is there some area of Diplomacy that I could gain strageically if I spent MPP on dipolmacy? Now research. I never spend MPP's on the vague areas that are Infrastructure, Production, Industry, Intelligence, Amphibious etc. What do the the Pros consider a good return on their investment? Which ones pay off? Or are these only slightly helpful if at all? Last question. The AI destroyers seem to home in in my subs like they have secretly put tracking devices on them. Does the AI "cheat" in this area" Thanks.
  12. I'd like to come to Texas but my supply is only 3 and I can't move... I didn't know you had a liberal varmit problem in your capitol. I figured Texas was conservative, through and through. I too have a political problem in my own backyard. My wife is from San Francisco.......... Unfortunately we both follow politics very closely. We can't even be in the same room when the nightly news is on. I watch O'Reilly and she watches that #^$%%#@& Matthews. But she works for the District Attorneys office and so she is at least tough on the crime issue and not a bleeding heart. Now back to my supply problem..
  13. Thank you sir, may I have another one??? If you were addressing your remarks to practically anyone else in this god-forsaken state, you'd be right. However, I am a libertarian island. Cutoff from reality by the liberal waters surrounding me.
  14. I play this game for a few weeks and then stop for months. Now I remember why. It is a supply game, not a war game. It drives me nuts. I can't do anything because i never have supply over 5, or so it seems. And even if I do have a supply of 8, I cannot plan for future moves because it is anyones guess if i will be allowed to make the planned move, or unload someone or do an anmphibius assualt. When the moon is full and it is the second Tuesday of the month I can reinforce a unit fully. If it is Monday I can't. The game can be fun but on a very shallow scale because there is no way to make a battle plan. I'm playing Brute Force (gold) right now and there are three units and an HQ that start in East Africa near Asmata. It is now 1942 and they are still there. The supply for the port and city is 1 and never increases. The units hit a high of 3 the other day and I threw a block party. I could actually move them one square. Why even have the units if the supply makes them total useless? Supply should be on a scale of 1-100, so events that effect supply will not have a drastic result. Or have an option where supply is at 10 all the time. That would take a lot of frustration and guess-work out of the game.
  15. Hi, I would like to try your MOD. My only concern is China. Did you reduce it's military Uber-can't-be-stopped to perhaps just ability equal to the the rest of the forces in the game?
