  1. Seriously, I now see, with the closure of the last two "Single Player Inop. Seriouly, Fix It! (etc)" related threads, what inflammatory postings can lead to. I admit to being a past prime offender and will hence forth follow the high road in all my future postings. Or, as the "Fonz" would try to say - "I was wr-wr-wrr-wrrr (wrong) ...." Fonz "YouTube" -
  2. Impressive homepage Mike; Professional pilot, WW2 collector, WW2 restoration, WW2 reenactments, and CM1 data Guru. Very cool :cool: Question ... Where the hell do you get the time? :eek:
  3. KUDOS! A big thanks from me. I looked at these pics for over an hour, so damn interesting. One of the best photo link postings I've seen on this CMBN forum (I must have missed the prior postings that Sergei referred to). I actually downloaded all of them for my "pic keepers" folder.
  4. Yes, I agree with Fredrik. I've spent hundreds of hours playing CMBO/CMBB and always enjoyed them. After the initial "first play" euphoria of CMBN wore off (couple days) I began to get a bad feeling that there were to many game design and/or coding problems (bugs) for me to ignore. At first I blamed myself for not being up to the mental athleticism that CMBN seemed to require. I even took the advice of BF-Steve and quit playing CMBN based on his suggestion that some people just can't play it (lacked the needed skills, I suppose?). However, I kept at it anyway and continued to read the forum daily in hopes of gaining the needed skill sets to be a better CMBN sim dude. Well, the outcome of my daily forum visits hasn't made me a better player, but it did help me get over feeling that I wasn't able to cut the CMBN mustard. I need to have a sense that a tactical sim, like CMBN, is a cut above the COH game crowd in terms of coding reliability and accuracy of tactical AI. I felt that BFC offered this kind of "quality" because they always baked their cakes slowly and monitored the oven often. I think that from all that I've read here that it's quite obvious that CMBN wasn't polished enough before its initial release. I don't call for out of the box perfection, but I do expect obvious AI design issues, such as the OP has identified here, to be caught and corrected during routine alpha/beta test phases. Please BF, quit dancing around these problems with a bunch of esoteric gobbledygook. Produce a beta patch quickly so more of us can get on with playing the game and having some much needed (and missed) CM fun again.
  5. I'm not trying to stir the pot, but I'm just a little confused. If changes "have" been made then was it based on a new series official BF tests, or is it the result of "various forumites posting observed results, anecdotal or otherwise"? Also, if those "changes" were justified by new BF testing then did those test results support the assertions of the so-called "forumites"? Just curious ...
  6. Well, I just sent my brother an email and told him that I'm throwing in the towel on trying to learn BNF. I made this decision based upon your (Steve) statement "My advice for someone who's gone through the manual and the Tutorial, but still can't figure out how to do much with the game, probably needs to move onto something else." Hell, I've read the manual twice (minus the scenario building) and have trudged through the tutorial at least 5 times, and I'm still getting my ass in a crack at every turn. It's too bad because my Bro and I have had tons of fun with CMBO and CMBB over the years and I was really hoping that this would be a continuation of that great experience. He has a lot more time on the ground with CM and isn't having nearly as much trouble learning BNF as me. His extensive WWII weapons knowledge is his strongest point and allows him to maximize on his CM tactics. But, in light of this latest BFC advice, which I tend to believe, I'm shelving BNF. It's time for me to hang my head and shuffle back to Steam and do some run&gun COD and Brothers In Arms. Later guys ... Good old days for my Bro & I ... =====
  7. Huh? What? You're just mess'n with us, right?
  8. That's very good news from Steve. In the meantime you can use my color/contrast fix since the release date for the v1.01 patch has yet to be announced. P.S. A big thanks to Steve, and BF, for the "black" version inclusion in the forthcoming patch. It will be much appreciated by those, like me, that no longer have pristine eyesight.
  9. Sorry it doesn't work on your Kindle. I don't own a Kindle, so obviously my method was targeted for the larger PC user community that uses standard PDF viewers, such as Adobe Reader.
  10. I'm in awe. You're the master of rants. I agree with all you said but lacked the kahoonas to say it myself. Your closing remarks were brilliant - ROTFLMAO!
  11. I'm currently working on a method to use my high contrast PDF file to print out a new double-sided CMBN manual. My goal is to do it on the cheap (very cheap). I will let you all know when it's finished and and how I did it.
  12. If anyone thinks this suggested low contrast fix for the CMBN manual has been helpful then please leave a comment on this thread so it will be bumped up again. Thanks ...
  13. Thanks for the feedback. I did make it a new thread last night, but no one has commented on it, so it never got bumped up again. Too bad, I think it would help a lot of folks who need an easier manual to read. UPDATE: Folks are leaving comments now and it's getting bumped back up. Here's the new thread link: http://www.battlefront.com/community/showthread.php?t=98112
