Names confused all the way up!

Recommended Posts

I've been reading the manual to search for the UKR formations(ya know, it's the only one I play with) and I want to try out new kind of formations apart from the one who originally costs about 21.000 deployment points and it's named "Su-152mm" or something like that...

And that "Su-152mm" is placed on the deploy box called "Archer"...

Seriously, some things are exagerated. I have the Spanish "translation", which is all the time mixing English with Spanish in every place. Maybe the Main Menu is in Spanish, but then the Mission Briefing is almost completely in English, except for some buttons in the bottom.

In battlefield, some infantry soldiers are called "Abrigo" in Spanish means Coat, or "Ejército de Siria", in Spanish, it means Army of Syria, "Army of Holland" things like that...

The deployment menu shows the T-84 Oplot with the BM-21-6 name, which refers to the Soviet Grad rocket launcher, but it doesn't make any sense. 

As well for some other units who are named after WW2 Germans or US tanks or transport vehicules, for example if I remember well, one of the Russian/Ukrainian anti-air vehicules is called after a German lightly armored tank, which name was honestly hard to remember...

Other example is that when selecting country for your personalized battle, if really fails to show "Russia, Ukraine, USA", but instead shows things like "Reserve Light Tank" for Russia, "Tank Hunter" for Ukraine...Many, many, many things are wrong and even if I change the game language from Spanish to English, it will still have very incorrect names for a 60-70% of the game units, orders, deploy troops names etc etc etc.

Can anyone tell me what to do here?

AleksandrStefan,

Welcome aboard!

Posting in the wrong place is hardly unique to you. You ought to see some paces I've miss posted to! Your technical issues sound serious. May I suggest you take lots of screenshots and post them to the CMBS Technical Support Forum? If it's a corrupted file, it's an extreme example if ever I heard of one. If it's not a corrupted file, then BFC's going to be very busy!

Regards,

John Kettler

I cannot do any screenshots in the game because it somehow does not work in the Paint program

I've tried to show my friends how CMBS is epic, but the screenshots weren't working, basically because when I make the "copy-paste" to Paint programm, it's all but a black screen so there's no way to make a good screenshot.

However, I can do some photos from my iPad and show them here, of course they won't have the same quality... but it's a try. And also, before making the photos I will change the game language to English, so everybody can understand me.

Your symptoms, as Pete Wenman stated, are exactly those of a corrupted install.

You can save your savegames folder and any mods you use. Then, do a clean install, paying particular attention to the install location. The installers will sometimes try to go the default location. If you do not use that default location, then you may end up with some files from the game in the wrong location if you don't pay close attention during the patch/update installs.

After reinstalling, then you can import your savegames and mods folders.

Good luck.

Also the installer has a habit of picking up other files. Make sure you unzip the installer into their own empty directory before running the setup program.

Still not working.

I desinstalled the game and then back to install, after I did that, I found that the game had the same problems, but now the names apart from the fact that they were already wrong, they have changed and still nothing good...

Want me to make photos with my iPad(as I can't make screenshots due to a Paint program problem).

If a simple reinstall didn't work, I think you should contact the help desk and open a ticket. https://battlefront.mojohelpdesk.com/

The advice to uninstall your game, download fresh install files, open them in new, and individual folders, and install them one at a time, should work. If not, well, that's what the help desk is for.

You are not using any mods?  Normal uninstall / reinstall will not delete mods.  Most common cause of this problem is a mod that modifies the strings.txt file (e.g. the animated text mod), but has not been updated to work with the latest official version of the game.

Heyyy peoples of this forum.

 

I did damn made it, about 4 days ago lol.

Now the details. What I did was to simply uninstall and delete every-single-thing that could be relationated with CMBS and then re-install. The bug happened in the first re-install, but at the second one, and for some reason, the names were back to normal...

Ahhh, now I finally know the names of each of the formations I can buy in the deployment menu, and the soldiers, and everything! 

But there's one thing I haven't tried yet, and I don't think I will; the Spanish translation. I fear that if I switch from English to Spanish, the game will be again messed up with the names and I'll be back to the same problem, or worse, so for now, I will play in normal English mode.

And by the way, sure it's quite not the best place to ask this. 

But now that CMBS runs normally, I was thinking about making a sort of campaign and story about a Nationalist Uprising in Ukraine, which eventually leads to a 2nd invasion from Russia, taking advantage of the same unstable conditions as in 2014.

And because of it's Nationalist, anti-globalization and almost dictatorial characteristics of this new Goverment, NATO and EU does not get involved except for economic and industrial help, so Ukraine can alone stop or even defeat their enemy, with minimal NATO involvement in a country with a now so "unpopular" Goverment.

As for the military and tactical things, the campaign consists of a Ukrainian marine regiment defending the strategic corridor Armyansk-Kherson-Mykolaiv-Odessa from attemps of the Russian Marine, Ground Forces and also forces from the DNR and LNR.

What do you think? Although, I can barely use photos or videos on this, and just with the iPad.
