  1. Here's how i fixed mine. I had extracted the BS download to FILES but this already contained some install files from CMBN. I instead extracted to a new folder and reran the BS install again. No issues with unit id's now. Must have been picking up something from the CMBN .brz's
  2. Looks like there is a problem with unit id's. Playing my first game i have soldiers in my squads named Spitfire VC's !!!
  3. Juju - Hey my friend! Yeah, i still hang around here. Indeed it was probably 2001-2 when i had to close the site. I know i had the privilege of hosting a lot of your work. I remember it was costing me a small fortune in web fees - the host was charging me at "large" business rates due to the amount of bandwidth it was using I would guess nowadays data usage would be considerably cheaper. Still, at least i actually get to play the games more than i did back then, and can't wait to play CMRT. All the best Juju, and thanks again for all the graphical improvements you've done over the year
  4. Juju - Great work as usual ! Thanks for taking the time to make it.
  5. Martin....sorry I didn't realise that you had attached the activation cleaners to my helpdesk ticket. I followed your instructions and ran the cleaners and I can now start the game - everything is okay!! - thanks for your help on this. @ Canada Guy - get these cleaners, they may work for you too. Good Luck!
  6. Martin, are you able to send me the activation cleaner, or make sure my activations are okay? I do have a helpdesk ticket for this. Also, do you know exactly what Microsoft broke and how it messed up CMBN?
  7. Yep, any news on a fix yet? I get success on all activations, but game fails to launch.
  8. I have a ticket open for this problem as well. After Win 8.1 CMBN/FI both asked for activation keys. I could enter keys into the field and they came back saying they had both activated okay, but then the games failed to launch. I tried several attempts and I guess I hit an activation limit, because I then only had the option to quit and contact support for assistance. I'm a patient guy and trust BFC will get a fix for this as soon as they can.
  9. Nice Bil, very nice indeed. Thanks for the time and effort you've put into this.
  10. Yeah your right. Looking at the programme info it says it was first shown on BBC2, 1st June 2009. I missed it the first time round.
  11. Does anyone know if this has been shown before? The one on Youtube has a History Channel mark on it and has a American narrator. The BBC programme has Sean Bean doing it.
  12. I found this programme quite informative and refreshing after all the Discovery/History Channel documentaries that have been put out that rehash bits of the same old combat footage to go into making yet another. The talks with the vets was great - the Panzer Lehr guys gave a pretty good account at what it was like in Normandy, being short on supplies and ammo, and to be pounded into destruction by the allied airforce while wandering where their own planes were. Also, it highlights the severe drop in British/Commonwealth morale after the disasterous battles for Caen, and the strain in
  13. Showing on the BBC IPlayer now. A decent overview of the battle for Normandy. It gives a pretty good account of what it was like fighting in bocage country and the allies struggle to break out. This is part 1 of 3. I think there will be viewing restrictions for those outside the UK, but here's the link anyway: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b007cbgl/DDay_to_Berlin_The_Struggle_to_Break_Out/
  14. From what i've seen on this forum, many UK customers have received their boxes without being charged any customs or mail handling fees. I really don't know how they work these things out. If it's any consolation, CMBN is a great game and will give you many years of entertainment. Manx, in Rip-off Britain, aka Treasure Island.
  15. Great work Vein! Thanks for the time you have spent making this.
