CMBN Update and other issues

Recommended Posts

So, I have a new computer and had to install CMBN (and all other titles from scratch) I downloaded the full installer plus the new patches. The process was tricky for even experienced users but after wading through the laborious installation, applying patches and activation - as well as getting the games to work on a 4k screen things were working okay and a lot faster with a more powerful processor (still no multicore support) and SSD drive. However the main issue is with CMBN, it plays but it misreports the unit names/types both in-game and in the editor. It has all these strange names for the units like it's drawing the info partially from CMRT, CMBS and elsewhere. In the editor, the oddities continue with misnamed units/hardware and instead of things like selecting AIR SUPPORT it has the option for AERIAL FLAMETHROWER (whatever that would be, is this Game of Thrones?). I tried a clean install, three times including downloading the full install files again, as well as trying a few other different things. The only thing that works is reverting to the 4.00 exe version where the editor and game work fine without the above-mentioned issues. Going to the 4.01 or 4.02 executable brings back the issues. Has anyone had these issues and can anyone shed some light on what might be a fix? The issue doesn't appear with any of the other games in the series but being that CMBN was the first released in this series and works and installs a bit differently from the others might that be a pointer to the problem? I don;t recall the issue on the older system but then hadn;t been upgraded to 4.02 on that.

The only noticeable issue with the other games has been slightly more frequent freezing/crashing of the game than on my older system and the sound stuttering every so often (I usually play turn-based so this is during the action playback mostly) as well as the graphics momentarily locking (at the same time as the sound stuttering).

Any thoughts/help much appreciated.

you somehow inadvertently copied additional brzs from different games into the folder or are missing some.  Can you post the contents of your data folder?   This is what you should have

Thanks for the reply, looks like I'm definitely missing one file at least (v100E.brz), but why would it all work file on 4.00 but not with either of the updates?

Just checked the "CM Battle for Normandy v401 Installer" folder and it too has that exact file missing. The total file size of those combined files is 9.75Gb.

Okay, I tried removing the mods folder which seems to have resolved the issue. So it seems something the updates don't like in there that's causing the problem.

I have seen mods do lots of funky things.

The full installer is exactly that. It is a full installer. There is no need to add patches to it. It make things much more simple and less tricky.
