Soldiers' guns no longer produce smoke

Recommended Posts

I have the latest version of Final Blitzkreig (FB), and like all the other updated CM WW2 titles there was smoke when individual soldiers fired their guns. But then in FB the smoke from soldiers' guns stopped, while artillery, AT guns and tank guns continue to produce smoke. Anyone had this happen to them? I didn't change anything with FB's settings (as far as I'm aware) before the change happened.

Well a classic thing to happen is to forget or accidentally turn off smoke - <alt> k. But the bigger guns still generating smoke negates that. Try <alt> k and see if it says smoke is off then  <alt> k again untl you see the notice that smoke is on. Then see if that fixes things... Hopefully...

Toggled smoke on and off on the hotkeys. Went through my mods removing all graphics packages and smoke mods. Still no gunsmoke! But thanks for your prompt attempts to help.

I've worked out the problem. I'm running version 3. But I definitely bought the upgrade to 4, and seem to have lost it somehow. So I went to the new Battlefront website expecting to go to 'my account' to check a list of my previous purchases and their activation keys and I can't find any such list. Can this be done anymore on the new website?

Yes, the my orders list should allow you to get the keys and any download links you need.

If you cannot find what you want I recommend opening a ticket with support. Orders, the site and licensing are what they are there for.

Oh and v3 having no smoke would explain things. Maybe not how you had it and then lost it. Unless... Do you have both 3 and 4 installed?

Sorry to hassle you. I've solved the problem of accessing my old account by the simple expedient of actually reading the instructions on the front page of the website! I had bought upgrade 4 for CMFB so I reloaded it and the problem is fixed.
