  1. Yesterday i wrote to BFC support if i could upgrade my Paradox boxed copy of CMSF 1 to CMSF 2. Problem was i purchased it years ago so i don't have any proof of purchase anymore. But I also bought two modules directly from BFC. I provided order no. of those purchases and today i received a new licence no. for CMSF 1. BFC assumed that since i bought two modules, i must have also purchased the base game, even if there's no way to verify that. That is what i call an exemplary customer support. Thank you! Now, off to the store to get me a CMSF 2😁
  2. I'll remain an optimist. IMHO current technology/various game engines are able to make CM game much more than they are today. The only issue is money and manpower. Maybe BF will try crowdfunding someday. Lot's of fantastic games were made thanks to Kickstarter in recent years. Most of them propably wouldn't be made otherwise since they represent niche genres (like Battletech and Pillars of Eternity I and II just to name a few). Battlefront is a well known company in wargaming community with great reputation. I have no doubt they'd able to collect at least few hundred thousand dollars for their new engine/CM project.
  3. Ok, thanks everyone for replies. It's good enough for me that there are some plans, even if it means it's going to be a very long run!
  4. If the matter was already discussed, sorry for littering the forum. I did try to find a similar topic or a response from BF but couldn't find anything. Does BF consider moving to a completely new game engine, either using an already existing one from another company or creating a new one from scratch? If so, has any research been done by BF in this area? Obviously i'am a fan of CM games, otherwise i wouldn't bother asking. I support BF as much as i can, i know that BF is a very small, even tiny company, doing everything on their own and staying fully independent but i also have the feeling that the franchise came up againts a brick wall (hope i used that idiom right...). From my point of view, the game engine has run it's course and nothing more major can be achived using it. And i'am not talking about the graphics or animations but about the AI, lack of dynamic campaign system or having more control over units (like ability to attack more than one target without having to move). I really would like to see the CM games evolve. The engine upgrades are obviously a welcome adition but i see them as minor changes, although i i'am fully aware that you're putting many hours of work to make them. And that's another issue. Being such a small company means that everything take so much time to make (like planned modules for FI, RT and FB or even patches) but obviously, that's not your fault. So to sum up, does BF have plans for making CM something bigger than we have today or should we expect to receive more of the same in the comming years? Please don't take this post as a critique, cause it's not. I'll further support BF within my abilities.
  5. New site is very nice. Most of all i'am glad i can actually open it😁 I was always blocked from your last one (i guess my wi-fi was the reason). Now waiting for Shock Force 2. Day 1 purchase for me!
  6. Great job! Big thanks for your effort!
  7. Sometimes I wish we could see your faces and your reactions when something unexpected happens during a turn
  8. Talking about a sweet revenge! One best served...cold Not many players would go for such a bold move. Really nice one!
  9. I'd love to see a video aar of this battle with Bil commentary That would be cool!
  10. That is some high defence here. Action is just around the corner for sure.
  11. Nice, CMSF... still my favorite CM title. I hope some day it gets 3.0 engine upgrade... Great vids btw:)
  12. Did an upgrade today from 8.1. Everything went smoothly in around 15 minutes and no issues with CMBN 3.11. Already had newset nvidia drivers. No activations needed. Cheers!
  13. One thing to remember is that the right flank has poor line of sights even after exiting the forest. You will have hard time seeing all of his positions.
  14. I actually played this scenario about 2 weeks ago. Played also as Allies and got my ass kicked about 3 times:) I was changing tactics and always acted like I was playing the first time. Finally i took only one route (one from your list but not telling wich one) and it turned out really good. Achived total victory. I know that AI has several plans for this map so it has nice replayability. I'am very curious how this turns out for you:)
  15. I'd really like to have a Cold War CM game. Like it was portrayed in Tom Clancy's Red Storm Book. NATO vs Warsaw Pact in Germany
  16. The best way to get help is to open a ticket at helpdesk. I'am sure BF will resolve your issue. http://battlefront.mojohelpdesk.com
  17. Just run the setup. It will install everything you need. Just remember to point the right path where your CMBN is already installed.
  18. Thanks for the update! So i guess it's safe to say we have to be patient for another 2 weeks. Can do
  19. Yes, i did open a ticket. The problem is solved and i succesfully just activated the game with 3.0 license key Thank you BF!
  20. Just started watching some earlier streams (US mission). I clearly see that my hair will proly turn white while playing Black Sea. Loosing an entire squad in a blink of an eye to one tank round from god knows where... I'am going to need some antistress pills
  21. Don't want to start another thread so maybe i'll get help here without also opening a ticket. Just bought 3.0 upgrade (yesterday). I had CMBN game (just the base one, no modules) patched to 2.12 and running just fine. So I installed 3.0 upgrade and 3.11 patch. Wen't all fine. Now when i need to activate the base game i put 3.0 license key (as described in instructions) and... i get a message "invalid serial number". What am' I doing wrong? I double checked the instructions from knowledgebase on installing the upgrade and i can't see any mistake on my side. To be crystal clear I'am trying to activate the game when launching the game and not using "activate modules" (since I don't have any).
  22. I feel your pain. Bought 3.0 couple of minutes a go and now i'am downloading this 10 GB file. Looks like it's going to take me 2hrs. I agree that there should be also just a 3.0 upgrade download. This new aproach with a master installer is obviously a great idea but i can imagine not everyone is able to download such a huge file within a reasonable time.
  23. Ultimate General Gettysburg? Picked that one up. Great game
