  1. I was reading a graphic novel titled `Battlefields` by Garth Ennis and the book contains a appendix where they note some of the sources they used when writing the novel. In this I came across this supposed quote from Gavin where he says `If our infantry would fight, this war would be over by now...Our artillery is wonderful and our air corps is not bad. But the regular infantry-terrible. Everyone wants to live to a ripe old age. The sight of a few Germans drives them into their holes`. I cant find the entire quote but was would like to know the entire context was about. Did he really thin
  2. I submitted the help desk ticket. Hope for a swift response.
  3. Any hints on completing the 4th mission? I can`t believe I am tasked with clearing 2 hamlets and moving a company through all without armor support. I cant clear the hamlets as I can't sight the opposition to call in motors without getting killed first and I am told to save artillery for the next mission. I have raged quit on this a few times.
  4. Anyone else know how to contact the help desk? I have send a couple of e-mails to them to report getting a cracked disk and I have yet to receive a response. Any other thoughts?
  5. I found this tidbit interesting, "And the British side did take disproportionate casualties in Normandy. And it’s largely for tactical reasons. I’m not going to get into it, it’s way too complicated to explain, but yes the British did suffer very high losses against the Germans for a variety of reasons. That was not the case on the US side." What does he mean by that? My understanding is that since the British had to contend with the majority of the armored units in Normandy they inevitably suffered more tank losses.
  6. I did find the Activate new products.sh and ran it and successfully entered my key for CMBN 3.0 but no other prompts came up for the other modules. How can I get those to come up?
  7. I am also a bit confused, as I bought the vehicle pack and installed it but no request came up to enter in a activation key. From my understanding I am supposed to reactivate the other modules after I installed it but can't figure out how to do this. Any help? I am certain it did not install as there is no diamond icon on my launch screen and the vehicles do not show up when I try to purchase them. I am on a mac and they came is patched up to 3.11
  8. Battlefront recommend I try the solution below. It fixed all of my problems: > 1) Right-click on the CMBN application. Select "Show Package Contents". > 2) In the window that pops up, right click on the Contents folder and select "Get Info". > 3) In the Info window, click the lock in the lower right hand corner. Enter your password at the prompt. This should "open" the lock. > (The permissions for Contents should look fairly normal.) > 4) Click the gear button at the bottom of the Info window and select "Apply to enclosed items". > 5) "Close" the lock. Close the Info wi
  9. Here are the instructions I got from Battlefront that fixed this problem for me: > 1) Right-click on the CMBN application. Select "Show Package Contents". > 2) In the window that pops up, right click on the Contents folder and select "Get Info". > 3) In the Info window, click the lock in the lower right hand corner.

  10. I also report the same problem but it only is confined to CMBN. After patching to 2.12 the game dos not launch. I hit the icon to start the game and it just bounces and does nothing. I have reinstalled the patch and still get the same results. It worked fine before the patch. CMFI has also been patched to 1.12 and still launches. Permissions for both game are identical. I am running a MAC OS X 10.8.5 with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX 2048 MB.
  11. I re-installed the patch and still get this problem. Additionally the floating icons for infantry and tanks are missing and are only black boxes and I get lots of flickering. THis happens when both anti-aliasing is enabled and also when off.
  12. I have never used this mod and I am also getting this problem.
  13. I opened all the GL battles to check their permissions and noticed they did not match the FI permissions. I changed the permissions to match those and everything is working now. Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving!
  14. I used the default location when I installed i.e. the only option available to me when I clicked the icon to install. It installed in my my CM Fortress Italy folders. I did find the thread noting the same problem but his problem existed on a windows machine and since I am running a Mac I cannot replicate what he did to fix the problem. Any other ideas ?!
