JeffPreston posted a topic in Archived CM Normandy Tech SupportHi Folks: Can anyone help? I've got CMBN v 4 w no extras. Sometimes there's no enemy present in a Quick Battle. I've seen this twice - once with v 3.12 and once with v 4.00. On both occasions the enemy was the USA, but there's not enough data to know if that's any kind of pattern. Both times it was the defender who was not there. Both times the attacker and defender forces were chosen automatically. It's disappointing to spend 30 minutes slowly creeping up to a village only to find it, and the rest of the map, completely empty. The statistics at the end screen clearly show there is no USA force at all - no men or vehicles. I love this game and would love to hear of a solution to this issue! Many thanks in advance for any help.
When the expansion is released or for a subsequent patch, what about being able to choose mixed forces in QB, or at least have the option to do so. It could better reflect US advisory teams working alongside Ukrainian formations and bringing superior air power to bear, or Russian led separatist forces if militia are added, without having to go into the editor and create specific scenarios. It would also allow representation of the mixed composite BTGs that where a VDV BTG will deploy with attached armour from a tank or motor-rifle unit, of course you would pay extra points for this in game but bring needed armour to an otherwise light VDV ORBAT.
I think I know what the answer will be but I would love to see BFC spend some time on reworking the Quick Battle automatic unit purchase logic. I played a QB yesterday with the "mixed" force setting and got given dozens of "Igla" surface-to-air missile troops, sniper teams, and engineers, but no regular infantry. To my mind, any setting that might logically include infantry (such as "mixed") should have a regular infantry unit as its core, and specialist teams like Igla missile and sniper teams should be a tiny proportion of the whole. I have got bored of playing the same battles over and over again so QBs are becoming increasingly appealing for a quick game - but the present force selection logic just makes you want to rage-quit and play something else.
