v1.02 patch notes

ATGs, infantry guns and anti-aircraft guns. To the best of my knowledge machine guns and mortars are unaffected, but they have never been difficult to keep hidden, IMO.

Interesting, thanks Vanir. I was just wondering if the adjustment was one across the board or affecting very specific types of units.

I've downloaded and installed the 1.02 update for PC.  It installed correctly, and my game shows 1.02 in the menu screen.

As with most patches, this one resets my custom key mapping.  I'm used to that, and I easily remapped the commands in the game menu.

In play, however, things don't seem to work as planned.  I remapped Pause to "P," but it doesn't work in the game.  Instead, hitting "P" shows "Pop Smoke" as the highlighted command.  My remapped movement keys, however, seem to work correctly, and they are different from the defaults.

Has anyone else seen this?

Ah, ignore my post immediately above. 

The problem described there comes from using the now obsolete 1.01 version of Vin's Animated Text.  Removing it solves the problem.

By the way, in remapping my keys I noticed that there's a new entry call "Hull Down"...

Yeah, I noticed that too but it doesn't seem to be operative even if you assign a key to it. I'm thinking it may become available in the impending 4.0 upgrade

Good guess!

Hmm, I wonder if the 4.0 Upgrade for the WWII titles will finally decrease the Modern like (CMSF) Direct-Fire chances to hit Vehicles :-)

LOL what are you talking about.  The WWII titles are just fine in that regard.  With the usual knife fighting distances we usually play at the first hit chances should be high. Longer ranges *do* result in more misses.  Do you play CMBS?  If you did you would see a difference for sure - modern FCS are nasty. Vehicles die faster and furiouser in CMBS than any WWII title.

Damn it...How did I know someone like, IanL, would find his way into my post and counter it...Grrr :-(

Actually tanks arguably miss too often in this game.

Not because of accuracy but because the high-velocity metal slug meant for punching through heavy armour will get stopped cold by a few twigs on a tree or a bush, or burst harmlessly against the leaves of a hedgerow.

If Hitler had been a gardener, who knows if he might have won the war...

You don't manually place the patch files into the game folders. The patch is a program that executes that function when you run it. First extract the zip files into an empty folder. Then click on the executable file and follow the directions.

You have to click on the executable file. It should be CMFB_Setup_102.exe or something like that. It's process is similar to how you installed the game in the first place.

The tankers from the 4th and 11th Armoured divisions would have loved to, but no, the Pershing didn't make it on time for that campaign.

M26s did not see combat until late February 1945, with the 3rd Armored Division.
