Stupid question re. BF CM file repository

Recommended Posts

The answer to this must surely be staring me in the face but I cannot figure out how (or even if) the BF Repository allows the user to filter uploads by type, i.e. in my case, scenario files only.  And is it possible to refine a search further (i.e. too identify scenario files designed for PDEM, etc.)?

 

I will delete this thread and go stand in the corner if I figure it out before anyone gives me the answer.  Thanks!

Well that will not happen - the thing is very hard to deal with.  Rumour has it there are some improvements to the web site in the works but we have not heard any recent updates on that.

 

Sorry I have no real advice to give you - I have only ever found things on there by brute force or blind luck.

Actually the search does work depending on what you are looking for. You can search by titles, descriptions or author. You can't search by type but theoretically people will have uploaded to the correct folder.

How do I access the folders for type: scenario?

 

I am astonished that the database is not searchable by type.

Thanks, guys.  Amazing.  I am not going to trudge through the Repository without being able to sort by type or even stars given by users.  This is a pity as I was looking forward to finding great new scenarios but they'll have to bring the database search function up to the bare minimum standards first.

We are working on a replacement. You guys have no idea how difficult it is to find a better replacement AND have it work AND have it not cause us to swear at it even before it's up and running. OK, now you have some idea :D

Many thanks for responding, Steve, much appreciated. In the meantime, announcements on this forum of new content by its creators seems to be the best way to identify scenarios, etc. that one might want to download.

The Scenario Depot III is running well now albeit I still need folk to submit their scenario so we can get a good database of CMx2 content there.

 

Also, The Proving Grounds II is due for release in the very near future.

You mind not spamming the same message all over the forum in the process?

Show me a single forum that covers CMx2 and I will happily post a single post in there otherwise to cover all bases Im afraid I have to go into each version of the game and post.

If Shane is kind enough to fill a large hole in the scenario database support currently offered by BF's own web site, then he is performing a valuable service. I do not regard his attempts to popularize this service as spam and I intend to support it fully.

Thank you Bahger and I do apologise for anyone whose feathers I have ruffled.  I was under the impression my duplicate posts would be easy enough to avoid.

They are and thank you for putting resurrecting the scenario depot!
