Hello everybody, So I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10, (a long time ago) and I'm told 'License is not for this machine' when I try to start CMSF. When I try to get the license online, it says 'number of uses exceeded' (words to that effect). But the game's not been on more than 2 or 3 successive computers of mine. So, should I uninstall the game and try again, or does it look like I need helpdesk level of assistance for this? Just wanted to ask advice before uninstalling. Any help much appreciated. Want to dust things off and get ready for CMSF2!
kenprice61 posted a topic in Archived CM Normandy Tech SupportI have loved combat mission from the initial release, i still have my original hard copy and manual to go with it. It was an amazing game and something I deeply love. But ever since CMBN ( i skipped afgan and whatever the other ones were after the original engine) I just honestly cant recommend any of battlefronts games to anyone and at this point, strictly deter them from supporting such a company. I have dealt with more issues in just simply downloading and installing the game, and applying patches without somehow breaking it, then i have playing it. The various versions that exist, the upgrade pay for versions, Its an absolute ridiculous mess. I suggest battlefront goes the same way slitherine and matrix games did and just go to steam with a simple to download and install format if they cant figure out how to distribute a game circa 2010+. The fact that you charge 60$ and over protect such a niche game in my opinon only furthers the desire to pirate it rather than own it because its simply easier and less cumbersome than paying the money. Had i known this, i honestly would have never bought it. BUT... I own the game and by god if someone released a torrent that just WORKS. i would be all over it. PLEASE for the love of god. Fire your security development and patch team and move to a modern publicist who wont tie your software down with the most ridiculous of constraints and can pull their head out of their ass. I bought the damn game. Let me install it and play it for the love of god and dont charge me for ridiculous updates. You hearken back to a time of gaming that nobody loved. And quite honestly I dont thing a few minor additions warrant a 10$ fee. LOOK... you release a game, sure theres patches, you make it simple, you dont release 3 different f-ing versions of the patches depending on whatever version you might own that you bought like 2 years ago. and when someone goes to download the game guess what. You make an installer that includes the most updated patches. I was actually looking at one of the newest games and then it occured to me that if i pay 60$ for it, it probably doesnt include the 10$ "patch" that adds 5 features. Be real in your development, stop gouging, go back to what your company was really about. Making an honest to god amazing game that was worth the money. Stop the nickle and dime charade. its greedy and quite honestly its BS. Matrix games is bad enough but atleast theres no oh you want the grisby portion of garys game? thats an extra 10$. oh well 60$ for UI not found. Victory. I'm sorry im not trying to be an absolute ass but when someone pays money for a game the least you can do is make it work. and beyond that, when a slightly newish OS comes out you can make an easy to find fix or incorporate it into your patch. Sorely dissapointed and will never buy one of your games again. My hope is that a publisher is willing to buy you out and set right the wrongs.
I recently tried to fire up CMBB, on my Win 7 rig (where I had no difficulty before). I got a message from the elicense app that my license for the Vista patch had "expired". I tried to reinstall the license I got a message saying all licenses have been used. I tried to generate an off line license and got the same message that no licenses are available. Please help. I definitely paid for the license so this is disturbing....
Hello, I have been interested in the Combat Mission games for some time and have played the demos, today, I see someone selling old CD copy of Battle for Normandy I assume (1.0) on ad site. I have not contacted the seller yet because I have read about the online activation system and I want to make sure of a few things. I want to enjoy the latest gameplay features as well as maps and mods so I plan to buy the upgrade to 3.0 I was wondering... What if the game is out of "activation"? Does that even matter if I buy the 3.0 upgrade and activate it with my new key? Do you even need to activate a game with 1.0 before activating 3.0? Thank you very much. -D.S.
