Hello, I am looking to purchase my first Combat Mission title (CMBS or CMSF2) and was hoping someone could explain the contents of the Download + Manual option costing $68 dollars.. Specifically, are there PDF manuals specific to Combat Mission Black Sea and Combat Mission Game Engine included with this purchase option? Excerpt from the Combat Mission Black Sea web page "This product is downloadable with the option to purchase a platform specific DVD and/or a general Combat Mission Game Engine Manual. Except for special promotions we do not offer game specific manuals, so if you already have a current Game Engine Manual you're all set! " Is the $8 manual specific to Combat Mission Black Sea? Also, what is the downloadable format? TIA
I have loved combat mission from the initial release, i still have my original hard copy and manual to go with it. It was an amazing game and something I deeply love. But ever since CMBN ( i skipped afgan and whatever the other ones were after the original engine) I just honestly cant recommend any of battlefronts games to anyone and at this point, strictly deter them from supporting such a company. I have dealt with more issues in just simply downloading and installing the game, and applying patches without somehow breaking it, then i have playing it. The various versions that exist, the upgrade pay for versions, Its an absolute ridiculous mess. I suggest battlefront goes the same way slitherine and matrix games did and just go to steam with a simple to download and install format if they cant figure out how to distribute a game circa 2010+. The fact that you charge 60$ 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.
