  1. Whoa, was this seriously 2 updates in a week's time?! 😀 Thank you for the update, Elvis!! I think that's all that even the whiniest of us want to see, whether it's good news or bad. I've said it before and I'll say it again... you deserve a raise! 😀
  2. I am a software developer also, so I understand as much as anyone that predicting release dates is an almost impossible task. You nearly always hit unexpected roadblocks in this business that are almost impossible to account for until you get down & dirty in the code. I am like Steve in this aspect - I tend to always give a very optimistic "best case" date when I start a new project, and I very very rarely actually hit that date. The difference is that once a week, I inform my bosses of any challenges I'm encountering and update my estimated completion date based off of the latest
  3. I don't really understand how a standardized WW2 TO&E got intertwined with a fix for this bug when it's been known about for over 2 years and Engine 4 users have already had to endure the wait for CMSF2 before the fix was supposedly "just on the heels of its release". I'm assuming this is for a future module or modules, but what about the people who already paid for Engine 4 (or SF without updated campaigns)? Couldn't this have waited a little while?
  4. Yeah I'm wondering if somehow my email address didn't get tied to my forum account. I checked my profile and don't see email address listed anywhere an an option to check/update, but it seems like I at least had to validate my email when I first signed up for the account. Maybe it got lost somewhere it the website updates... not sure. Either way, I'm just glad I can login without issue again. No idea why it never occurred to me to try my screen name before this morning...
  5. Success!! Big shout out to John at the Help Desk, who went through all of my issues and resolved each one of them within a couple of hours of me submitting the ticket (on a Saturday morning, no less!!) I now have working copies of all six games again!!! The forum password issue turned out to be (at least mostly mostly) my fault. All of this time, I've been attempting to login using my email address. On a hunch this morning while doing some troubleshooting with John, I tried using my screen name rather than my email address and it worked on the first try! The username input says D
  6. It may be that I turn UAC off on my machine that the install location for CMBN isn't an issue (it is annoying having to acknowledge every time I want to run a program so I just take my chances with it off). Thanks Ian! (and yes, I had to reset my password again to make this post... the simple password I used last reset still wasn't working when I came back to post this.). Hopefully they can get it ironed out.
  7. Everything seems to be working fine as far as the install location for CMBN other than the Commonwealth module not activating (and not being able to find the Activate shortcut anywhere). I submitted tickets this morning for the download/activate issues I'm having and a separate one for the forum password reset. It created a new Help Desk account for me when I submitted the tickets, and I've been able to login to that one fine using the password it generated. I'm also able to login to my store account fine. The only issue is with the forum password... I have to reset it every time I
  8. Yep there was a shortcut on my desktop after installation of CMBN and I made the mistake of deleting it along with all of the other shortcuts that got installed (I like keeping my desktop clean). I searched through the install folder and the My Documents folders for the shortcut and haven't been able to find it again. Not sure if it matters but I changed the default install directory from My Documents to the Battlefront folder that got created by the CMRT and CMBS installs (changing the sub-folder to CMBN obviously). I see subfolders in My Documents for CMRT and CMBS, but nothing for CMBN.
  9. Thanks, Schrull. The installer that was linked to the Order Detail for the CMBN Engine 3 upgrade actually was the 3.12 Full Installer, so that's the one I got on the third attempt... The Commonwealth module must not be getting recognized because there is an icon for the base game and Market Garden, but no Cromwell. The URL for the installers for CMFI, CMSF, and CMBB all lead to dead/not working links, so I will submit a ticket for all of these issues. I am 100% certain there is an issue with the password reset for the forums. I was locked out twice just trying to come respond
  10. I just completed a motherboard/CPU/memory upgrade in my machine and after reinstalling Windows, am attempting to re-download and install the BFC products I've purchased over the past few years. I thought I'd share my experience doing this because it has been an exercise in frustration and it would be nice if this process was revamped at some point in the near future. First, the good... Red Thunder and Black Sea downloaded and installed without a hitch. I was able to download and activate these without any issues via one Order Detail screen apiece. It was slightly confusing as to which
  11. Something is definitely wrong as far as the password for the forum goes... I just reset my password for the 4th time to make my previous post and tried to login to the forum in a different browser using the new password. It won't work...
  12. Got locked out and had to do a password reset AGAIN to come reply to this. Not sure why it doesn't seem to keep my updated password after the first time I use it... Are the passwords for the forum and store still different? Seems like I remembered they merged into one account, but maybe I'm thinking about Matrix Games. As far as the keys go, I was able to re-activate each game and start it without issue. Not sure what happened there but they're all activated again for now.
  13. I'll add that I just got locked out of my account again. I am 100% sure of what I changed the password to when I had to reset it earlier. I updated the password in Chrome and when I came back to check this post and get my keys again, it told me the password is incorrect. I typed it twice very carefully and got locked out again and had to reset it again. I'm going to try just re-activating my keys and see what happens. It's really annoying that I wanted to just jump on and play this morning and cannot launch 3 of the 4 games I bought...
  14. Hi guys, I currently have CM: Black Sea, Fortress Italy, Red Thunder, and Battle for Normandy installed on a Windows 10 reinstall I did a few months ago. I specifically remember re-activating all 4 of them after each was installed, and everything worked fine for that. I haven't played since then and have a little free time... went to play Black Sea and I got the Activation dialog. Tried all of the other ones and the last one (BN) worked but the other 3 seem to have lost their licenses. Should I just re-activate them using the keys (and will this use up an activation), or is there some
  15. Bye. Thanks for the offer but I've lost interest in another $50 game with new guys and new guns and little else different. We can keep milking this 10-year old engine with a horribly clunky interface and terrible performance on newer hardware and blaming all the cool things we can't do on the engine that THEY CREATED. I'm moving on...
