Hi, I just came across CM:BFN in the past couple of months and thought I would try it out given the PBEM option. Using the Demo, I started playing Busting the Bocage against my son (using PBEM) and after about 6 turns, it was starting to get very interesting (partly due to the stage of the encounter, but also we were starting to learn to use our forces more effectively). However, after my last turn, my son opened the file and about 75% during the replay, the game crashes.
After some testing, we discover the crash happens irrespective whether the file is opened on our iMac (circa 2008), a 2011 13" MacBook, or a 2011 15" MacBook Pro. It sometimes crashes in slightly different points during the replay but crash it does.... :-(
Reading through this thread, this seems to be a common experience for many and I'm sure that the underlying bug has been determined (advised by Phil Culliton?). If so, has an updated demo been released? (From the hosting servers, they all seem to have the original version.)
I'm very interested in this game and thinking of a purchase of the full thing, however I have a concern that the first significant thing I try with the demo causes crashing.
