  1. Good Day, I recently had to change my Motherboard, and, consquently, all my CMx2 games and Modules need re-activating. All my CMSF & Modules .. re-activated fine. Attempting to run CMBN + 2.0 upgrade plus Commonwealth Forces, results in License Error. I did try to re-install CMFI and Gustav Line, .. but, attempting to run CMFI results in 'Error: Errorcode' (very informative .. ) So, my question is: Do I have to submit a ticket for every Game & Module, or, would one ticket suffice, ... with the additional game & module info posted in the Message Details section
  2. Amazon App Store is ONLY available in the United States, thus, for those of us NOT living in the U.S., .... CM:Touch is not available. Please get in on Google Play soonest ... Thanks Tom South Africa <--- NOT United States ..
  3. I find this very confusing as well. Anti-Tank crews that abandon their Guns, should have either a crew or infantry icon. Kinda weird to see AT Guns guns running all over the place. Sometimes I'm very hesitant to advance my armour, as I can still see an enemy AT icon. Meantime, the AT gun has been knocked out, and all I'm seeing is the crew. Is this something that will get fixed in a future patch? Regards Tom
  4. Hi .. and Happy New year Update on my 'Quick Battle' troubles. As I mentioned previously, .. I purchased the CMSF+Marines as a combined install. I experience all of the problems aforementioned, .. by myself and others. However, .. if I disable the Marines Module (by renaming the Modules folder), ... then 'Quick Battle' works perfectly. I've tried various force sizes, .. terrain etc. etc., .. and it all works perfectly everytime. ... not even a stall at 77% ... it just breezes through .. :-) As soon as I re-enable the Marines, .. all the problems return, .. i.e. stalling, c
  5. Hi I said previously:- Update: I uninstalled everything, .. and re-installed CMSF+Marines Version 1.10 ... (no patch), .. and still have problems with Quick Battles. Now, having played around with it a whole lot more, .. I sometimes get crashes as well. Once it gets to 77%, .. it sits there for a loooonnnng time, .. then crashes. A couple of times with the same offset value .. i.e. 0001ceb8 (App Name: cm shock force.exe) A couple of times, it has just crashed out to the desktop, .. without any errors at all. Seems very intermittent and inconsistent. Thus far, .. I hav
  6. Hi Mark No, .. not upset at all. The nature of your posts suggested that, .. whatever the problem was, .. was MY problem. You seemed fixated on the 77% stall issue, .. which, in itself .. may not be a/the problem. I am/was more concerned about thingies disappearing (like most of my Tanks) during a Quick Battle, .. the Question Marks floating about (Basic Training), .. and the inability to save a Quick Battle. Anyhoo, .. no harm done, .. I appreciate you trying to help anyway. .. :-) Hopefully the issue will get sorted ... Cheers Tom
  7. Mark Sorry, .. but I'm beginning to get a wee bit peeved by your responses. Did you NOT read my 1st post in this thread. I bought CMSF+Marines on Monday (this week) and installed. I then installed the Marines 1.11 Patch. Quick Battles ONLY do not work correctly. Battles, Campaigns etc are working fine. On a 2nd machines I did the exact same NEW install, .. BUT, .. did NOT install the Marines 1.11 patch. Quick battles work FINE on this install. No Idea what the heck this means!! ... are you saying you have CMSF only, .. and NOT the Marines Module? Umm, .
  8. Mark Umm! ... sorry, .. not sure where you are getting your info, .. but a 6 drive RAID 5 (7200 rpm in my case), .. will load (read) +- 6x faster than any standalone drive. My average read speed is 285 Mb per sec. Even using 5400 RPM drives, .. It will still be +- 5x faster than a standalone drive. RAID 5 reads from all drives simultaneously, .. so, .. if 1 drive could xfer at 50 Mb per sec, .. then 6 drives are each xferring 50 Mb per sec, .. and because of the striping across the drives, .. that would equate theoretically to 6x 50 = 300. BTW, .. the difference between RAID 5 and
  9. Hi Mark Using Windows XP Pro with SP3 on both Machines ... Machine 1: ( CMSF 1.11) .. Intel E8400 (C2D Dual) .. @ 3 Ghz .. 2 Gb Ram .. GTX 260/216 Machine 2: ( CMSF 1.10) .. Intel Q6600 (C2D Quad) .. @ 3.2 Ghz .. 2 Gb Ram .. GTX 8800 Quick Battles on both machines are set for 'Small' .. Doubt it very much indeed, .. as Machine 1 (CMSF 1.11) has a 6 Drive RAID 5 Array .. so, should be blinking fast. Machine 2 (CMSF 1.10) .. has a 2x 500 Gb RAID 0 Array. So, BOTH machines are stalling at 77% ... so, highly unlikely that either of my machines is at fault here. Bear
  10. Good Day I did mention that I was experiencing the same issues with Quick Battles, .. in the general discussion area, .. but, I'll re-iterate here, .. and note some other observations I have made since my previous posting. I purchased and downloaded CMSF and The Marines module (combined), .. from Battlefront, .. on Monday. I also downloaded the Marines Patch version 1.11 Installed version was 1.10 ... I launched the game, .. did the License thingie .. changed my options etc., .. and exited. I then installed the 1.11 patch, .. and re-launched the game. Battles and everything else se
  11. I just purchased and installed the game today (Shock Force + Marines). Installed Version was 1.10 ... Didn't try the game at that time, ... downloaded and installed the Marines patch Version 1.11 ... Quick Battles are doing weird things, .. my Units (M1A1s) Icons keep changing to question marks (and Tank disappears), .. intermittently .. !! Also, .. when trying to save the game, .. I also get gibberish in the filename field, .. and it cannot be deleted nor changed. Hope they fix it soon .. luv the Quick Battles ... :-)
  12. Hi Sergei Yes, .. I'm aware of that, .. in fact, .. I did play around with an early Beta Demo. Unfortunately, it was all in a foreign language , ... and I had no idea ... how to do what .. :confused: I was thinking that the Battlefront guys may want a few things checked out, .. before they release it. Cheers Tom
  13. Hi If there is ... gimme a shout, ... I need to get outta the water for a while, ... and get my feet on dry land ... Cheers Tom
