* Mortar gunners will operate correctly when other teams are in the mortar halftrack.

Art Fixes

* Shadows toned down when sky is overcast
* The posture of passengers in most 250 and 251-series German halftracks were adjusted slightly to make them less vulnerable to enemy fire from outside the vehicle.
* Fallschirmjäger troops have a more unique portrait.

* Towed German AT guns, especially the PaK 40, link up better visually to the Opel Blitz.

Misc

* Optimized sound effect streaming to reduce graphics "stutter" for systems with less than optimal harddrive throughput. People experiencing this problem may have to move CM to their C drive or resolve issues which might be causing slowdowns to secondary drives.
* Intro screen displays any BRZ files that were expected but not found.

It's very likely that your ongoing games will work just fine in the new patch, if you save them in an orders phase before updating. I say "very likely", because there isn't a 100% guarantee, but we're talking at least 4 9s (i.e. 99.99% of games), maybe 6, for previous patches being compatible with games saved in the orders phase.

Yes, thank you!

 

BTW:   Now that mods are kept in a different tree from the game itself, do we still need to remove all mods before installing a patch or upgrade?

You never did need to remove them so you still don't. The exception being anything that mods strings, so Vins animated text needs to be removed from the shared mod location. Or if something gets a major overhaul such as when uniform file names were redone for the v2 upgrade (I think).

If you put it in the game install mod location then you can keep the version appropriate mod with the game and not worry about it.

You make it sound easy, but I still am confused.  How does one know which mods have "strings".  And what is the "game install mod location" - where the game installs or where the mods install?   Sounds like the safest action is to remove the mods folder altogether b4 installing any patch, so one doesn't have to worry about the above.

Strings file contain displayed text, so whatever modify it is a strings mod. As far as I know, only Vins animated text do so to CMFB for now.

Randomly found a small bug while checking the new halftrack passenger postures: The MG in the Sdkfz 250 is a MG-34 but the menue says MG-42

When I install the patch, it doesn't work - in that I don't see the new 1.01 data in the data folder.  I installed the original game to C:/SIMS/CMFB and I know that the patch must go into the installed folder.  However, the patch installer doesn't give one the opportunity to select which folder to install the patch to.  Is it installing to another folder?  How to get it to install to the correct folder?

Replayed " A muddy affair " and when my guys approached the town they came under MG fire.  My commanders, all of  which were all unbuttoned, slammed their hatched down after the second burst.   Works pretty good as far as I can tell...Thanks much BF.

I don't see any division patches on either 82nd nor 101st airborne winter units, which I'd expect since they wear the same jackets as when you select normal uniforms. Is this a bug, or by design?

Also wondering if they're supposed to have said patches on their greatcoats, why else can you select greatcoat, 82nd greatcoat, or 101st greatcoat if they're all the same?
