Hey €uro citiz€ns! BFC or CDV version?

Recommended Posts

Hey €uro citiz€ns! Which version you will buy BFC or CDV version?

In this time we €uro citiz€ns can choose between original BFC version and CDV version, do you order from BFC or do you just go to your nearest computer game store ? (deparment store, hypermarket or whatever)and buy the game with nice CDV €uro DVD package with waffengrenadiers and heavy copy protection smile.gif

What is your opinion?

I have not decided, what I do, the dilemma of €uro citizen. But I was very pleased with the demo of CMAK smile.gif

o I forgot British and Nordics (Scandinavians and Finns) except Finns don't still use €uros

I'll go to the shop on the 28th November and see if it's been released in the UK, if it hasn't I'll preorder from BFC. In either case I shall insist on paying in groats smile.gif .

Well, I've ordered direct from BFC, but it turns out that one of my main reasons, the groovy manual, has been discarded so there will be a slimline manual for CM:AK. :(

Still, I've ordered, and that's that.

I'm a patient man, I ordered mine from BFC.

Don't like crazy CDV copy protection, non-auto start, waffengrenadier and lousy patch d/l site.

It's like the good old days of CMBO. I can wait in trepidation for my postman to arrive.

This was an important reason to order from BFC for me too. And I want my nazi SS stormtroopers and not some waffen grenadiere. :rolleyes:

It was a test for me to see it lying in the shops today while on my way to my sister to order CMAK (don't have a credit card myself).

I knew it! It's a great conspiracy, "they" gave us fake money, probably from Monopoly-game...

Bring back our Finnmarks!

I ordered from Battlefront and now starting to regret it - my friends are already playing the game and Battlefront's site says that shipping will start on 5th of December.

I am one of the (seemingly) few who were actually happy with the CDV version. Got it a day before the official release, never had problems downloading a patch and never cared about the Waffengrenadiere. BMPs can be altered, as can be certain annoying copy-protection mechanisms...

And since I ordered CMBO directly from BFC I already had a complete, printed manual to accompany the CMBB tiny one.

And then the temptation of just walking into a store and grab a copy instead of waiting for snail mail... ;)

For CMBB I had no choice and bought from CDV, but I didn't like at all the changes they made: "waffengranadier", no svastica and SS symbols. After more than 50 years still those fears. Anyway...

For CMAK, I pre-ordered from BTS. I will have wait until shipping day (let's hope it's 5th december!), but I think it will be worth it. smile.gif

Sounds familiar :mad: I ordered three copies on the naive assumption I'd finally get a chance to RTFM (pdfs are the sperm of the devil). Oh well, you live and learn...

Sorry to shatter your utopia.

"In order to reduce costs on this game and be able to sell it for only $35 we have decided to ship it with the main manual as a 210+ PDF file which is installed along with the game from the CD. CMAK will also ship with a 32 page printed Player Guide with a detachable Quick Reference Card."

Oh, I was just kidding. I'm not sorry at all. :D

Maybe they could do something special for the pre-orderers... something like keep their games overnight in the laundry basket where Madmatt stores all his dirty socks and underwear. That would bring to the games a very special aroma which nicely simulates the true horrors of war (my nose will never forget those nights slept in a tent shared by two squads after we had been served pea soup earlier in the day and had had no chance to get clean underwear for a week, and someone was diarrhic, and it was -30 Celsius outside so you couldn't keep the entrance open).

Although I prefer the BFC version with its SS and sig runes, I will buy the CDV Version of CMAK tomorrow.

This has many reasons: First one, I'm living in germany so there is no chance to have historical correct games :rolleyes: and dont want to think about the correct arrival of my package...

Ok, the main reason is, that I want to play this game NOW :D and I dont want to wait for long time for shipping and so on. The payment is another reason, I have no credit card (poor student).

Hi all,

I´m sitting near Kiel in germany, have ordered CMAK from BFC direct asap, and will buy a second CDV version because it will be here sooner ... :D

I need both for my network to play with friends.

CDV have announced a release date of 28th November, but it's not clear if that's just Germany or the whole of Europe, although it looks like it's already on the shelves in Finland.
