I cannot install in Win 10. It produces an error message upon installation. It tries to install something on One Drive, or something like that

I have downloaded the Windows installer .rar file to a fairly new system with Windows 10.

The OS does not recognize .rar files. 

Do I actually have to install a utility program for being able to install the demo?

Best regards

Try PeaZip, it is easy to use and unpack the download, rar-files can't be extracted by Win 10 AFAIK.

That is Microsoft's cloud save service. When installing, press the browse button and direct to hard drive, like "C"-partition.

So, as someone who didn't play SF1, was the air support button always a bit off like this?

It also doesn't seem to light up when there's air support available.

At long last we are happy to announce the demos for CMSF2 are available right now:

.....

Enjoy!

Thank you Steve.

I always loved the menu and load-screen music on this title.  Outstanding. 💥🎼🎵💥

Sadly I have to go to work before I can get into turn 1. 😞

Running well on OSX. As mentioned above, make sure you drag the extracted application into the Applications folder if it doesn't unpack there automatically! Otherwise you get a black screen! 

I'm on a mid 2013 MacBookPro 15" with integrated graphics and it's running well on Balanced, similar to performance of other Engine 4 games (I've got all of them except Gustav Line, which I will get!) 

Looking forward to the full release!

On a sad note, Strykers are still made out of spit and tissue paper, just like IRL. 

@Pete Wenman We can be more than one thing! We can be happy about the demo and simultaneously grouse about any number of other things! We're amazingly capable in this area! =D

Same thing happened to me and I couldn't fix it until I looked in "Macintosh HD" and took it from there. Now it is happily residing in Applications and Launchpad.

That's the thing about demos that pre-date the final game release. You get a peek at the last remaining to-fix items still in the Beta build. Consider it an 'easter egg'. ;)

AHH! On a hunch I just moved my mod folder from "user data" to the "data folder" and the mods work. The "user data folder" is broken. It must be some legacy code left over from SF1 or BN or something.

Started in CM:FI actually, but as always, the good old 'Z' folder works perfectly.

Glad to hear that. I am considering upgrading to Mojave and have a concern about my favorite games running okay on it.

You should be fine Michael. If you are up to date on CPU etc. You shouldn't have any issues.

I updated to Mojave a couple weeks ago and everything was fine. No wrinkles because of that during beta testing. 

Take it form a seasoned, Veteran -  CM Mac Man :)  Ultradave knows his Mac stuff.

Have WINRAR? If not, get it.

That fixed it. Must be my computer. I can usually unzip files no problem. 

Anyways, wonderful to see the demo!

No, it is not your computer.

BFC used a file format which stock Windows (10) cannot open.

Not the best choice, in my opion.

Just a (?) minor bug report (?) I've noticed even when I have the shaders option set to On in the options, they are automatically off when I enter one of the battles, I have to manually turn them on with Alt-R. No big deal , just thought I'd report that.

I have had that bug in all CM games for a long time. Reported to BFC and hope that the patch will fix it. It is an "irrational" bug as it affects some scenarios but not all.

I'm in the process of uploading a new Windows demo for download.  It includes three tiny fixes so we didn't change the version number:

1.  "Bradleys" changed to "Strykers" in the Training Scenario

2.  Fixed UI piece to show that the Artillery Support tab is actively selected

3.  Fixed missing building damage artwork (shows up black)

It should be up within a half hour of this post, I think.  Apologies to anybody that is currently downloading and having theirs cut short.

Steve
