  1. So are there any scenarios which more accurately depict the CW way of fighting? Id like to play those.
  2. I always fear fighting in cities with CW forces for this reason. Is there a guide for using CW forces in a built up area? Its one thing when you can call in artillery or tanks but what can you do on the attack when the streets or buildings prevent you from calling on this support?
  3. Resurrecting this older thread so Panzershrecks and bazookas can now fire inside of buildings? I had thought the blast effects would prevent this but got my last Sherman destroyed by a panzershreck last night from a german firing from 10 feet away on the third floor of a building.
  4. I am also interested in how WP works as I thought I use target smoke on the unit I am trying to hit but when I have used it the target comes away fine.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  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 downloaded a new campaign from the repository but cannot figure out where to put the .btt file. In my CM BN folder on my MAc there is only one folder titled `documents`. Any idea where the campaign folder is?
  14. I too notice the lack of heavy weapons especially the Vickers guns. I remember in CMBO using these extensively. I was shocked to see them missing entirely in the Scottish Corridor campaign. Does anyone know why these units are missing in the campaign? Also, while we are at it,occasionally CW forces have to take a building but with a lack of SMGs how is this accomplished?
