  1. Not any more. It looks like I'm starting the campaign over though, unless somebody has some good news about where my replacements are for mission 3, so I'll get a save file in the near future.
  2. I got distracted by other games for a while but I've been seriously playing CMBN 2.01 for a couple of weeks and now I have a few more questions. (Having a blast by the way.) I just finished the second mission of the KG Engel campaign. The briefing says that my forces will be brought back to full strength periodically, including the third mission, but my troops do not appear to have been replenished. I reached the setup phase of mission three and my PG are still missing a lot of soldiers. I only lost one tank, a Lynx in mission one, but the loss of infantry is close to critical. Assaultin
  3. Wow. I had no idea this thread would take off like this. I learned a few useful things and it seems I'm not the only one! Thanks again, all.
  4. Hi all. Loving this game that I just bought. A few questions. Is there an independent LoS tool? By that I mean not based on a unit. I'd like to be able to click on an unoccupied spot on the map and test LoS from that location before sending a unit there. I seem to recall CMBB having one, but it's been 8+ years since I played that game so I may remember incorrectly. If I split off a scout team and send it toward the enemy, I'm guessing that hunt is the best order to keep it from moving into a discovered enemy position? How should I keep it from firing at an enemy that it finds? A covered
  5. I first heard about this game at the beginning of April and thought "Ha Ha, nice one." Training videos and a full forum section are a bit far to take it, though. Wow. How the heck can you make CM work in such a limited environment?
  6. Only on Battlefront would it be necessary to mention the word "free" in the context of a patch. (OK, Paradox too.) I just logged on for the first time in ages to ask the best way to order both the base game and the Commonwealth expansion to save money AND get to D/L and play the base game right away. I saw a note on the site somewhere a couple of days ago, but can't find it now. Here's hoping for that lightning response!
  7. Problem was solved by changing properties of the shortcut. I played the tutorial a while before seeing the reply to change the exe as well. Maybe I don't have to? Anyway, it's working now and I'll probably be getting the game soon. Thanks again!
  8. So to test it out I could re DL the demo, install it, and then R/C the shortcut to change the properties so that I'm running as admin? I'll try that. Thanks!
  9. I DL'd and installed two different versions of the beta demo on my quad core, Vista 64 system and neither would run. They installed properly, and put a shortcut on the desktop. I'd double click it and nothing would happen. No game or even an error message. I think I also tried running the executable directly and that did nothing, either. I didn't seek tech support at the time because BF's tech support looks a little convoluted and who would want to take the time for a free demo anyway? Now that the game is out, maybe I can get some assistance. Ideas?
