I'm ancient CMBN (and older CM games) player coming back after several years without gaming. I see there were some updates during my "absence" and I try to catch up.
I was on V212 (CMBN + Commonwealth licenses) so I installed the V3 upgrade (SKU CMBN-UPV3-PC-DW). I'm on Windows 10 BTW. Now the game version shows 3.12 (Game Engine 3). Installation went well I had to reactivate the base modules but all is ok. I even see some Market Garden campaigns and battles and some battles prefixed BP1 (Battle Pack 1?) but it only says I need Market Garden. These are grayed out, it's normal I don't have the Market Garden module licence).
Now what? I have some doubts on how to have all modules and packs at latest level (4.0?). Specially with the Battle Pack 1, in which it's said " The Battle Pack updates your game engine from v3.11 to v3.12 ".
After some study, here's what I intend to do:
Install CM Normandy - UPGRADE 4 (Windows) and CMBN - Market Garden (Windows) (no matter in which order I guess?)
Purchase and activate CM Normandy - Vehicle Pack (Windows) (text says there nothing to download, only license)
Finally deal with CM Normandy - Battle Pack 1 (Windows) (all other modules and pack are prerequisite). But here it's not said it's only a license activation and I don't want to downgrade my game. So here I'm not sure what to do
Is there someone here who can validate my path and tell me how to install the Battle Pack 1 without downgrading?
