  1. I like how 1 person expressing disappointment leads to an entire page of discussion on how bad everyone is. Are you people stuck in a time loop by any chance?
  2. The clock is ticking on Apple staying x86_64. https://www.macrumors.com/2019/02/21/apple-custom-arm-based-chips-2020/ 64 bit or not, your next Mac may not be able to run any software you currently have.
  3. The standard remedy for a bunch of stuck pixels is warranty replacement.
  4. Are you somehow suggesting that the number of times you visit a webstore is somehow related to the number of times your compromised credit card can be accessed? That's comically ignorant. Epic is throwing its money around trying to jam its way into the market. BFC should see if they can get in on that Fortnite money. It's hard to argue as a small developer with a distributor covers 90% of your development cost and guarantees a minimum revenue.
  5. There is nothing wrong with giving out ETAs and nothing wrong with missing them if something comes up, but when it becomes obvious you are going to miss your ETA you should inform interested parties. To not do so is a Dick Movetm
  6. When a patch is 2 years in the making I start to question their ability to deliver, regardless of how long they take.
  7. Sure it is. It's exactly the same thing. Information being entered on your website might be intercepted by a 3rd party. A script surreptitiously installed on a website to steal data entered before it is encrypted or sent to a transaction provider is pretty common. True, I didn't even think it could be my BFC purchase until I saw this thread. I've purchased a bunch of computer parts from a Canadian retailer that recently went bankrupt, auctioning off hardware that had 17 years of complete transaction logs, unencrypted. I assumed that was the cause of my problem, and that the fraudulent purchases were made at places that didn't require the new CVV2 number. Security online sucks and you are always at the mercy of whatever provider you are dealing with. Nope. It's been used many places. There are only a couple of places that my recently refreshed CVV2 could have leaked from though, unless something hilarious happened like Amazon got compromised. BFC is one of those places. It's not uncommon. British Airways and OnePlus are recent examples of that. If your email got compromised or your provider was compromised, or your provider was slow with a critical update, or had a disgruntled support guy, or someone guessed your password or... Once they have access it's silly easy. No encryption, no fuss, just gotta hide some javascript in the Web 2.0 hell every website has become. Easy. That's good. I just wanted to point out that you were mistaken when you said... Good luck figuring this out. It's always a pain, especially if there is nothing to find.
  8. You say that, but I just took a look at the checkout page. All it would take is a bad guy with access to your hosting solution (say, your admin password) and basic javascript knowledge to grab credit card information directly off the input form you generate before it is sent anywhere. Easy and common enough. OnePlus got nailed by something similar last year. The credit card I used to buy CMSF2 was breached. A first for me. It's a tap card, so it would have to be a web transaction that got me. That doesn't guarantee that Battlefront.com was breached or anything, but your explanation here is faulty.
  9. You haven't installed the latest patch. That formation disappeared from QB.
  10. So, with this patch I've noticed a bunch of Syrian ATGMs have moved to Mech Infantry only on Specialized Teams, and the BMP3 seems to have disappeared entirely (along with the Mech Airborne formation) from the quickbattle setup. Am I missing something?
  11. It's critical that Battlefront abandon all current development and put all resources into adding the following feature to all CMx2 titles. This is the only road to victory.
  12. Matrix is released Armored Brigade in a few weeks, which looks like a pretty killer Fulda gap game. Next best thing to a CM game that will probably never happen.
  13. Go into the folder the game was installed in and use the "Activate new products" shortcut.
  14. Thanks. Will the Quickbattle content for the earlier release include all CMSF2 units, or just the Base game + Marines?
  15. If Ford sold me a car with a radio without a volume control I'd be pretty annoyed. You sold an upgrade to your game that added the ability to mute the music. It's hard to argue that basic audio controls shouldn't have been part of the base game. You can't seriously be complaining that other people are unreasonable when your stated position is that you don't know if your game is ready to launch until 10 minutes prior and that acknowledging a missed release window when it becomes obvious it will be missed is too time consuming, yet spend 10x as many words complaining publicly that your customer base isn't entirely rational. $150 for a new game with all the trimmings is fine. Games are expensive to make. It's the 21st century, money practically grows on trees now. Games across the board should go up in price.
  16. Well, it's possible that I have given BFC too much credit, and that rendering their simple models is actually a weakness Combat Mission has, but I doubt it. They'd have to be spectacularly inept to suffer performance issues with their low poly counts on modern hardware.
  17. Just use a service like Imgur. Also, Combat Mission's bizarre performance issues don't have anything to do with model rendering.
  18. I need T-80BV upgrades, IS-3s, and giant enemy crabs.
  19. Some paraphrasing. "I'm sorry you are such entitled whiners", "All of your concerns are dumb", "There is no middle ground between early-access with daily twitter posts and 1 update every 18-months", "I just point out people's entitlement". If this were a movie, I'd complain that the antagonists are too predictable.
  20. It's important not to paint Battlefront with the same brush as some of their more "dedicated" fans, because it isn't fair to Battlefront. These "super fans" take any criticism of the game, or even sometimes bug reports, as personal attacks. You'll see their kind in any sort of niche community, it's best to ignore them.
  21. Of course, in this case the Chapel ceiling has a big hole in it, and the Pope is wondering why it's going to take 18 months to fix it, after its been paid for. Michelangelo needs to release an update to an old ceiling before fixing his current job apparently.
  22. I don't think there is any need to apologize for missing a release window, but I'll repeat that it is not too much to ask for the community to be informed when that window is no longer viable.
  23. This is a ridiculous overreaction and not helpful. All you do when you go overboard like this is give the denizens of this place that seem so desperate to defend every action Battlefront makes meat to chew on. Don't do it. Also, don't pre-order digital goods unless you are getting something really good for doing so. This reminds me of Kerberos Productions with Sword of the Stars 2. That game was launched busted on release, with the producer claiming that the code "exploded", which is why SotS2 was inoperable at launch. At no point does video game software ever become "explosive". Similarly, I find the idea that a shop as small as Battlefront, there are people who don't know when release is until about 10 minutes before hand, unbelievable. If you say "Late September", it's not unreasonable for people to expect an update when that goal is no longer feasible. You don't have to come up with a new explanation or date while doing so, but it's pretty disrespectful to string people along who are expecting a release. Especially because this is also holding back needed fixes for titles that have already been released.
  24. In what way will RTX cards break Combat Mission? It's unlikely that any PC hardware will drop support for OpenGL, we aren't suckers running Apple computers after all.
