  1. OK, I just ran through my stuff again, and redid the thing I learned earlier this week, and now I have 2,324 WAV files. Big Stupid Guy here thanks Matt for helping me troubleshoot this.
  2. Yet another correction. I count 2,248 files out of 2,324. The last file before 00090000 is 00084405. Thanks matt. [ September 26, 2002, 09:35 AM: Message edited by: Wilhammer ]
  3. Based on the file counts provided on the other thread, I am missing 40 WAV files. I downloaded all those that Matt posted. The last file I have before 09000 is 082903. Are their 40 files between them? If so, would someone send them to me? If not, a list of them all would help me find out what is missing. billwood@ncat.edu
  4. Clarification: and of course the executable and the Prefs file (which I wouldn't transfer to the other computer). I think what you mean to say is not to copy the prefs file. I solved my install problem using the method this guy is headed to, and the executable can transfer.
  5. I wonder if the shipping of CMBB will get delayed overall due to this problem. We caught the initial pre-order wave, and it stands to reason the other waves need to be investigated before they too result in distribution of bad CDs. Detailed review of the CD I got: It has the oil slick like smudge I reported earlier, and I found the injection mold 'dimple' another reported on the edge of the CD. It is a visible bumpy flaw near the very edge of the track. If you see it, you will realize that 'Inspector 3' was blind that day. [ September 25, 2002, 09:34 AM: Message edited by: Wilh
  6. Well, I find that sometimes any of the offerings fail, so I keep the following installed and up to date. EZCD 5.0 My primary CD burner software, especially for non-CD copies, but I do use it to copy CDs. Never really had a problem. Nero Burning. Got into this when EZCD 4 was out. It was better, by far than EZCD 4, but EZCD 5 is just about as good. Clone CD. The best cloner out their. It tends to make perfect copies, including of just about every copy protection schema. TOAW-COW is impossible to reliably copy, for example, without CloneCD. However, when it gets wierd, like with the
  7. Well, after very frustrating trial and error, I found a way, however bizzare, to get it to work. 1. Took CD to work. 2. Copied using EZCD 4.0 3. Used the copy (since the original would not work) to de-archive the files using WinRAR. I got the error message of it failed a CRC check. But, 98% got extracted. 4. Downloaded the files Matt posted. Filled in the missing files, and then test ran it. It ran, a bit buggy, but that was because the video card in the office machine was inadequate. 5. Copied the extracted files to (2) CDs. 6. Extracted the files from the 2 CDs to my Home Computer.
  8. Good show. But, that leaves but one question: When does the replacement get sent?
  9. If I am customer with a grievance, and you choose to label me a whiner, so be it. I am EXTREMELY frustrated thay my pre-order resulted in a coaster. I bought the game on faith in BTS. I have no doubt it works, if the CD is not effective. My hope was that I would get a copy of the game as soon as it wasavailable to avoid the chance they might run out. Imagine how it is now, out 52 bucks, no game, and no idea (yet) when I will get it. I was shocked to find that BTS was offering downloads to those who achieved a partial install. This leads me to ask, "Why not offer a full download
  10. Tried it all, 4 different CD drives, copy to HD, copy the CD using CloneCD or EZCD 5.0 When viewed in Explorer, the name of the file shows, the volume label is Cmbb, but the WinRAR icon is missing. When trying to read it, it eventaully falls to a Blue Screen telling me my CD might be dirty, and asking if I want esc or continue to try. CloneCD failed completely. EZCD got to the last 12% and falied due to buffer under run. Install attempt resulted in each case to CD spinning, screen semi-lock up, and then the Blue Screen. I am a little dissapointed, but I am secure in knowing that
  11. I cannot install at all. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH!!! Just experienced the same thing. I have a defective CD. When I try to copy the file, run the file, right click the file, or otherwise try to interact with it, my CD runs, and then the light stays solid, and I have a system lock-up that I unfreeze by removing the CD. A visual inspection shows a stretched 'smudge' under the shiny layer side. It appears to as if the underlayer is melted in someway during the production phase. This pulls to one side, with a rounded triangular shape to it and reaches to about

  13. O gosh, I hope this does not happen to me when I get home... But, I have a possible solution. The kind of errors being reported here sometimes happen when you have different versions of WinRAR installed on your computer, or another app that supports it, like WinACE. I have solved this problem in the past by removing these programs from my system, and then reinstalling the newest version I have. Also, for those American version owners, the advice to copy the RAR file to your HD before processing it is a good one. [ September 23, 2002, 04:17 PM: Message edited by: Wilhammer ]
  14. The link to Tiger's arty mods is broken. Combat Missions Net is Active. I have searched high and lo for this item myself. I have to do a complet reinstall of CM and all my favorite mods, so I have been culling all I can find from the 'net. So, if anyone has Tiger's Gun Mods, please let us know how to get them.
  15. Keep the Confederate flag. It is not illegal, it is just controversial with certain ethnic group and its supporters. South Carolina was under a black boycott last year until it was removed from the capitol dome, and Georgia is under intense political pressure as it is part of the State Flag. Many southern towns and cities have Confederate memorials, and some of them are under pressure by the "revisionists". I think Virginia had to drop its State song, and Lee-Jackson day was replaced with Martin Luther King Day. Controversy, not law. Actually, making it illegal would not fly due to the F
