  1. Check out The Few Good Men. They host a pretty active multi-player community.
  2. Brazilian Army - per R2V release notes Engineer Battalion 44 Infantry Battalion 44 (lorried) Regimental Antitank Company 44 Antiaircraft Battery (field) Cavalry Troop Bunker- M1 57mm
  3. Two partitions of the same drive, not SSD. My C partition is smaller so I keep all my game (including STEAM) files on D. I've been playing CMFI for years from my D drive. I used the "smaller" .rar file Engine 4 2.02 patched installer from URL = https://battlefront.sharefile.com/d-s5053bf0726c4c5d8
  4. That's sub-optimal but I'll try it for now. I still think this new installer has a hard-coded "documents" directory drive error. When time permits, please ask someone to check it against the previous installers used for CMFI. As an FYI, both my CMBN and CMFB games run from a "programs" directory on my D drive using a D drive "Documents" directory. Those installers might help for comparison. Thanks for your help. 👍
  5. Right, that wasn't the case before. Everything is on my "D" drive. Hmmm, my CMFI/GL game files are in "D" directory; D:\Documents\Battlefront\Combat Mission\Fortress Italy\Game Files\Scenarios has no R2V files. However, I find all my R2V games files are on my "C" drive. C:\Users\mvang\Documents\Battlefront\Combat Mission\Fortress Italy\Game Files\Scenarios has 15 items. C:\Users\mvang\Documents\Battlefront\Combat Mission\Fortress Italy\Game Files\Campaigns has 2 files. These scenarios and campaigns are now what shows up in my game even though my game's "exe" file is located in my "D" drive at "D:\Program Files (x86)\Battlefront\Combat Mission Fortress Italy\CM Fortress Italy.exe". It appears that the installer correctly updated the program files where I prompted on my "D" drive but instead created the R2V files on my "C" drive. The game is defaulting to "C" for it's data files despite my pointing the installer to "D"
  6. @BFCElvis I think something's amiss. I successfully downloaded, installed, and activated selecting ""D:\Program Files (x86)\Battlefront\Combat Mission Fortress Italy" as the directory where my game resides. When I "play" the game and select "battles", only the R2V scenario's appear. All the CMFI/GL stuff is absent. The "Activation" screen showed all modules present and available to play. Please advise. Thanks.
  7. More details here - "Rome to Victory Pre-orders are now open" thread:
  8. It is a bit obscure with the file type truncated when you read the download screen. The 3GB ".pkg" file is for Mac. The 2GB ".rar" file is for PC. Download speed was a bit slow for me but all good things come to he who waits.
  9. Some of it is extracted here --> FGM Scenario Designers Workshop - AI Scripting
  10. Not that I'm aware. Human to Human (H2H) play by e-mail (PBEM) rarely occurs in realtime to allow for that. Opponents are often in different time zones across the planet. They usually play their turn when spare time allows for it. Typically, players agree to a regular rate of turn response time (like "daily" or "3-4 per week") before they begin their match. Real Life has enough time pressures already. I doubt many people would embrace more, especially for something they want to enjoy.
  11. I think there were holdouts. I still recall back in the 1970's serving beside an officer from the Royal Tank Regiment in liaison with a US Army tank battalion who often called the M-60 tank's 105mm main gun a 25 pounder.
  12. There is a difference regarding tank riding infantry. CMFI does not allow it. CMRT and CMFB do. It sounds like CMFB is the way for @BeardlessThunderGod should go.
