  1. Oh no not at all. It introduced several side effects the last to get fixed was the running towards the enemy in the bocage when fired on by small arms.
  2. Could be. They also could not be running in panic towards the enemy but instead trying to get on the other side of the bocage to get cover from the artillery. Granted that's a bad idea if there are enemy MGs pointed at them but still that might be what they are trying to do. The artillery evade AI is supposed to find cover rather than stay and get blown up. So, important information is how aware are they of the enemy they are running towards and what other options do they have? But game saves would be need.
  3. What about blanking the host's screen while the remote opponent is plotting their orders? I assume you are talking about playing hot seat remotely.
  4. Yep, that's it: if there are files in known dropbox folders and the incoming and outgoing folders then WTII thinks they are new. The new version has the ability to ignore games. That way if your opponent's turn manager keeps putting .ema files back in dropbox or you don't feel like cleaning up your email directories you can just right click and say ignore to those files. No I don't have an eta for the next version - sorry and I'm starting a new job soon too so who knows.
  5. I do help moderate over at the blitz but only the CM forums. I don't know anything about John Tiller games. I hope some one helps you out. As for reading your lonely HD you can get a universal adaptor for just these occasions it lets you hook up a bare drive to a USB port so you can get the data off. I have one in my filing cabinet ready to go. Sadly that doesn't help you but you can buy your own for a reasonable price 🙂 https://www.amazon.ca/NewerTech-Universal-Drive-Adapter-Bare/dp/B07D6X9CC1
  6. Maybe 🙂 The all in one installer definitely has everything included. As for activation if the big bundle includes GL and R2V then yes one activation code. If not then you need to active each module separately using the activate short cut.
  7. I have it. It is one of the ones that didn't make the transfer to the few good men site from the repository. I owe @Bootiea list and the scenarios but I keep getting distracted by work, searching for work, summer, shiny objects, squirrel.... Where was I - oh yeah until things get fixed you can find it here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/x9rph9n99eqr42d/Never a Rest.btt?dl=0
  8. @Bulletpoint is correct. @MarkEzra (and now @benpark too) have been getting better and better at creating AI for the QBs. What they usually do is any new content comes with QB maps that they create / add / modify up to their new standards. They don't go back and update older maps - as a rule. I'll let them talk about any exceptions to that. So, when a new module comes out for CMBS it will likely contain new QB maps and those will likely be made using the latest and greatest lessons from their previous work. I use the term "likely" because there is no official policy that I'm aware of and I'm n
  9. @paolotI'm not support and I don't plan to move to steam but from what I have read there are a few directory differences. My guess would be that you need to re-download. Perhaps someone here who has more steam experience can chime in and say what the secret might be.
  10. I'm going to try to stay away from the personal attacks. If you perceive I have failed please forgive me and address my actual point and we can likely come to some kind of agreement on what are problems and what are things that you and others don't like but are in fact intended. You claim there are numerous problems with LOS system. I am unaware that the system has a lot of serious problems. Honestly. I'll believe you if you believe me. I would like to know what you are referring to. I do understand and agree there are limitations to the system that we all would like to see improved. I al
  11. Yes, you need to purchase the upgrade. I am not totally clear on if you can go straight to the engine 4 upgrade or if you need to buy both 3 and 4. I think only 4 but if you cannot get clarity on the store page drop support a line by creating a new ticket here: Battlefront Help desk
  12. LOL I cannot tell how fast the time difference was between "Its up" and the first complaint since the forum said both posts were 7 hours ago. So, clearly I was less than a hour - I'm going to guess it was less than 10 minutes. I'm guessing I'll be skipping a lot of posts
  13. @JeanApple Was this recorded? None of the links I followed had an entry for this conversation with BFC.
  14. Oh that's odd. I just saw them as grease guns but now that you say MP40 they clearly are. I cannot imagine what would cause that. Perhaps a patch install issue. I wonder about a mod problem but it doesn't feel like that. Did you recently install the patch? If so can you verify that the .exe file has a date close to the patch release date? You could also try putting your mods aside (move the directory) just be be sure.
  15. No, that should not be the case. I have used maps for QB that have no plans at all. All you have to do is manually pick it and... Yes, the type of battle does need to be set for the map to show up when you try to create the QB. So if the map is set to a meeting engagement and you want to use it in a probe QB you will need to save a version of the map with the probe battle type for it to be a selection for you in the QB list.
  16. What happened? There was a forum sw update from the provider the other day. There were some issues that were being ironed out. I hope what you are experiencing is temporary. Perhaps try again once the black on blue quote colours have been changed - that's one of the problem that was being worked on.
  17. LOL, I didn't even notice that I should have wondered about that until you mentioned it. Thanks for checking though.
  18. I am aware. There must be some additional content management going on. When I switched my site over the be fully https it was really just a matter of setting up the certificates and the redirects (so http requests went to https instead) and I was done. Everything being served up on each of my sites was just covered by default.
  19. Interesting. It is the most important for sure but I'm surprised the rest isn't just by default. Good you checked though.
  20. I just visited and it did use https. I did see, on some pages, a warning that some images were not severed up via https. The log in page was warning free as was my account and orders page as well as the cart. Nothing serious.
  21. So, sounds like the differences between the two modern games are based on the RL technical differences. That's a Good Thing(tm).
  22. Probably not but possibly. Lots of models in the game were tweaked including the soldiers. So, the majority of those mods will not. There were changes in the UI too. I think the only thing you can do is try the ones you like and see if they work. First question what are you trying to hit? I have not had occasion to use them much in CMSF but in CMBS they work quite well. To deal with a MBT I usually call for three rounds for an IFV two is usually enough. It is not unusual for one or two to miss the actual vehicle. For IVFs close is normally enough while for a MBT you need one to hit if
  23. Yes, that should work. Uninstalling the product should leave our game saves under my documents alone. If you want to be extra careful you can go to your saved game folder (<your drive usually C:>\<your name>\Documents\Battlefront\Combat Mission\Shock Force 2\Game Files\Saved Games) and copy the campaign's save somewhere else on your HD. After the uninstall and reinstall you should find that the contents of that folder remain unchanged.
  24. Do you mean the patch page for the store entry for CMBN which says there are no patches for v4 update? Oops - reporting....
