  1. I'm considering getting a Mac soon. Not to replace my Windows computers but to add. On the Help Desk I get Mac questions sometimes and I have no idea what they are even talking about. They are English words that I know assembled into sentences that make no sense to me. Some of the "standard fixes" I tell people are words that mean nothing to me. So, I figure that I should get one so I at least have some idea of what I'm talking about. Anything you listed will play CM fine though. When buying a system with CM in mind steer away from anything that has only an Intel integrated video card. T
  2. @atshii Have you ever just let it go without clicking? I wish the rig I play the games on only took 5-10 seconds for the blue bar to do it's thing. In some really big battles it can take a couple of minutes. If I get impatient and click the map while it's working I get a window asking if I want to wait or end the process.
  3. I don't know what to tell ya, mate. The 4.0 Upgrade has been available for what...5 years? You have more features available to you right now, on a game that was purchased about 6 years ago, than when you woke up this morning. Without having to spend a penny. But you somehow you feel like we owe you more. I have no idea how to respond to that. And all that own the base game can get it for free.
  4. Do you mean that you have enter your Battlefront get and gotten your Steam key and it is not showing up on you My Page? If so, I'm not sure how that works. They can answer that for you.
  5. The Steam version is the all-in-one full game installer. The 4.0 Upgrade is a separate download. A different build requiring a different license key. So, it would entail creating a brand new download of compiled files. It would entail getting people that have Game Engine 3 license keys that would activate the 4.0 Upgrade. Finding out who those people are. And, I'm trying to be as candid as I can without sounding rude, we had no interest in giving away the 4.0 Upgrade to Steam players. But, logistically, it was the most simple solution between us and Slitherine. We are working on ways to avoid
  6. Do not apply the 2.0-2.14 patches to a 1.03 version of the game. The 2.0-2.14 patches are only applied to a Game Engine 4 version of the game. It will cause funky (technical term) things to happen to your game if you do. If you already did that you can revert back to the proper version by reapplying the 1.03 patch. Correct, your account will show version 1.03. To get version 2.0 (and then apply the patches through 2.14) you need to purchase the 4.0 Upgrade. That said, the only version on Steam is Game Engine 4. When we sent the keys to Slitherine, so that they can provide Steam keys for
  7. Use your CMBS activation key and the instructions in my initial post. They say serial number, we say activation key or license key.
  8. I'm not 100% sure that I understand the question. We certainly know how many people purchased CMSF2 on Steam. And that let us know that it was definitely worth doing with the other CM titles. We also believe that a large majority of Steam purchasers are new to Combat Mission, rather than people who wanted CMSF2 for a while but holding off until it was on Steam. Anecdotally, we've seen very nice posts like this: And I've inquiries on Help Desk with people asking if they bought a game from us would they be able to also have it on Steam some day. Releasing the older titles on
  9. Yes, if you only own the Game Engine 3 version you now have Game Engine 4 on Steam. The logistics of getting everyone with only Game Engine 3 a 4.0 Upgrade for free isn't worth the time and effort it would take for something that we are still selling. 🙂 Makes sense, right?
  10. Yes. This, please. My initial thought was to shut this one down before it veered off into a political thread but, for now, a reminder to please not let that happen should be enough.
  11. Like Shock Force 2 before it, Combat Mission Black Sea is now available on Steam! If you already own Black Sea you can get a Steam key for no charge. This is the same note that was posted when Shock Force 2 became available. The process for Black Sea is the same. Hi guys, We’re very pleased to be working with Battlefront and know many of you are eagerly anticipating the release of Combat Mission. We wanted to give you some details on how things will work and both teams will do their best to make this process as painless as possible for you all to get your games work
  12. I think it is MikeyD's favorite. He's got a scenario that is full of them.
