  1. While playing the Two Crowns scenario, my T32 Mountain gun refused to fire for some reason. The gunner kept in a permanent state of "turning" the weapon, but never fired, despite having perfect line of vision/fire and being commanded to fire via the target command. It is true that one of the 4 soldiers that usually handle the weapon was killed before this, and maybe that was the reason it refuse to turn the weapon, as it needed the full crew to work, so maybe is working as intended? I doubt that as I feel that would be extremely odd and unrealistic but who knows. PD / "Spoilers" for the Two Crowns scenario / : Not a bug, but after playing the scenario I feel it is poorly balanced. Taking the last objective it is nearly impossible due to the high concentration of German troops conceiled behind the ridge and the fact that it is situated in the edge of the map, forcing you to go directly against them, makes it nearly impossible to take it, as all your troops will get instantly killed by an incessant volley of close automatic fire. Also you only have one 81 mm mortar and 2 62mm ones, with limited ammo, which by that point you would have probably spend taking out the 75 mm gun and some machine gun positions. I feel like if the germans would lose one or 2 squads of infantry, and the US would get a small battery of 105 artillery with limited ammo the scenario will be more balanced.
  2. Thank you both for the responses Curios seeing that it happened to other people. Were you able to find the reason behind it? Good to know! Nope, and I didnt install any new programs that could have (well, from what I know) messed up with my user files either. Guess unless DerKomissar found what it was it Will remain a mystery.
  3. Hello all! So yesterday I decided to play some CM FB after some time of absence, just to find that all the scenarios and campaigns were gone. Tried FI, same problem, tried RT, and again, all gone. After some investigation I found out that all the CM files saved in my user file were gone for some reason that scapes me. I dont know where they went, but I guess the easiest solution to my problem is to make a reinstall. The thing is that I remember reading somewhere in the forums that there is a hard limit in how many times you can install a CM game in a computer. Is that true? And in that case, it applies also to reinstalls or only to new installs in a second computer? Thanks in advance
  4. Welcome John! If you want WW2 close quarters experience then definitively go with CMBN, especially with the MG pack, as it cover a lot of urban fighting. Also, this game ( with all modules and 3.0 version) is the most complete of all and it is the one with the major quantity of units and equipment. I wouldnt recomend you CMRT if you are looking for small scenarios, as it has very open scenarios, with little cover apart from woods, and usually featuring lots of tanks. CMFI has some very interesting city scenarios but the majority are also open. CMFB is more or less similar to CMBN so I will second what Mikey said and recomend you CMFB if you are looking for some extra material for CMBN. And if you looking for modern CQB battles, CMBS would not dissapoint you either. My honest recomendation is that you try all the demos, especially the ones of the newer games, as they are updated to v3.0.and you will get a peak of what kind of scenarios you will have with the full game. Hope it has been of help
  5. As you alredy have CMBN, I will recommend you to get first the modules/DLC for that game and the 3.0 upgrade if you dont have it. They add a lot of new stuff and feature some new countries and a lot of very good made scenarios. If you prefer something new I personally prefer Fortress Italy, because while all the other games are set in 1944, this one is set in 1943 and it really gives a different feeling from the other games. Nevertheless this is my personal view. They all are very great games and all of them (WWII ones) are or can be upgraded to version 3.0, so I will recommend you to choose the one with the setting that fits you the most . Hope this has been of help
  6. Now that you say it, I dont remember any scenario that actually has them, neither the panther turret. Maybe they are exclusively in campaing scenarios and in quick battles. Nevertheless, you can go here :http://www.thefewgoodmen.com/tsd3/search-2/#search/category=CM+FORTRESS+ITALY+[SCENARIOS] and try to look for a scenario with Panthers.
  7. A very interesting read I agree with you with the need of adding more weapons to CMx2, it feels a bit uncomplete the amount of infantry weapons in the game (Still a good quantity IMO) Furthermore, if they keep going to the end of the war, weapons as the M2 Carbine and all the volkssturm ones (VK 1.5, VG1/2, MP3008...) are imperative. Maybe,with a bit of luck,we will get to see all these weapons in CM
  8. Hello, Semhustej. I had the same problem in the past. If you still had not being able of solving the problem, I recomend you to unistall the game. Then Install the game again, but not the 3.0 upgrade. Then see what is your current game version, that should be 1.12. In my case was an older one. If it is also your case, go to http://www.battlefront.com/index.php?option=com_versions&Itemid=317#CMFI and press Gustav Line folder. It should redirect you to the download. When you downloaded and installed the 1.12 upgrade, then install the 3.0 upgrade. It worked for me, so I hope it will help help you too
  9. Hello all. Retaking the Armata topic, I thought that this video will interest you all
  10. Hmm, usually the guys that are with the machine gun are there just to keep the machine gun operational, so I guess that in a real life situation they will just stay behind the gun. To be honest, I find more weird the fact that the soldiers take actual fire positions than actually the abscense of shooting to enemys .
  11. Hello all. If you have read something about the battle of the Bulge you will know that the germans, for the initial phases of the battle tried to look like US soldiers for being able of advance further without making contact. Far that reason, US uniforms were given to german soldiers and some captured US vehicles (mainly some few Shermans and a bunch of M8 Greyhound) were given to the main line of advance still with US markings. Nevertheless, as they werent enough captured tanks (and a lot of them broke even before reaching the main line) the germans decided to modify some Panthers Ausf G to make them look like M10 Wolverines. They weren't too many of these, but it would be a cool addition
  12. Hmm, if I am not wrong, 105 Shermans were also used for indirect fire role missions, so it is posible that they had VT fuses too.
