  1. Really sorry to hear this. He was such a big part of this community back in the good old days. God rest his soul.
  2. I did use the all-in-one installers for each game and they did work well the confusion I think is where the heck to get the installers for each game. I think rather than having customer go back through all their past purchases if a customer account page could have a list of the installers for each game they own would be a huge help. I know that doesnt sound like a big deal and for some its not but for the average customer its just confusing and frustrating. Something just that simple can make the whole re-install process much more straight forward for the customer. Here is my account page, here is a list of games that I own, with my keys for those games listed below and a download link to the all-in-one installer for that series game.
  3. Well everything seemed to install ok, I hope! The only one that really wasnt straight forward was Normandy. There is just so many upgrades over the years you really have to be careful how you go about activating it. I totally get that trying to maintain a game with so much history has to be a nightmare BUT there just has to be a better way to install and activate all these games. One that doesnt totally give the customer a headache. I dont pretend to know what it would be but in 2019 there has to be a better way.
  4. Thank you, I will do that in regards to the activation that I am unable to de-activate. I did get everything installed, I THINK anyway. We will see. Still not sold on this whole Windows 10 stuff. I am finding I already missed the simplicity of Windows 7.
  5. Hello all, hope everyone is having a nice weekend. So I had a HD crash which has expedited my Windows 10 upgrade I am perfectly happy with Windows 7 but that is another topic. Anyway first question is am I understanding correctly that I can download an all-in-one installer for each game or there is 1 all-in-one installer somewhere that installs every game you have a key for? I see from my v4 upgrade downloads there is a download called "CM Battle for Normandy v401 Installer". Is that the all-in-one installer for CMBN? It is really hard to believe that installing these games is still so confusing after all these years. Second issues is since I actually lost my HD I have no way of deactivating my old installs. Am I correct that I have 2 activations that can be active at any one time? And I guess I might be able to put in a ticket to maybe get my current active install deactivated since I cant do it myself? Thanks for any help you can offer.
  6. Merry Christmas Steve, the update it very much appreciated. Hope you and all the team have a merry and safe Christmas.
  7. Ya that is often what is said every time this patch is brought up, or at least the last 3 times it has been that I can count. They can either work on the patch or post on the forums. First I would say it takes 2 min to post something on the forums, but them not posting on the forums about the patch is not really the issue. Hey it is what it is at this point, it's pretty much Christmas now and I would never ask that they do anything other than spend that time at home with their families. And I hope that is what they are doing. They deserve it after getting SF2 out the door. My frustration with the whole situation isn't going to just change if the patch is released or not at this point. I am pretty used to not playing the WWII games now.
  8. Ya I picked up SF2 because I do enjoy SF very much BUT the way the patch for all the other games that I have so much invested in has been handled really leaves a very bad taste in my mouth. As much as I love these games they have been sitting on the shelf for 2 years more or less. That is really just an unacceptable amount of time for a developer to fix a problem that was introduced in a paid upgrade to a product. I don't think they feel this way but it really seems like they just don't really care about those who play primarily single player. Well we pay the same amount for the games. I am really sorry to come across so negative and I am sure I will get jumped on by the usual people but just remember there are probably very few people who have been more ardent supporters of these games to everyone I could preach to about how great they are than me. So feeling the way I feel about this whole patch issue is NOT something I enjoy. I really want to continue to support Battlefront with my hard earned money but I seriously have to question that going forward, which really breaks my heart. To the devs who might read this I truly am sorry for the negativity, I sincerely mean that and I hope you can get where it's coming from.
  9. Would really like to know this too.. I know SF2 just came out and I picked that up because I do like me some modern CM on occasion but those of us who are much more into the WWII games have been waiting for this patch FOREVER! Any news? We gonna see this for Christmas vacation? That would be the best gift ever! Thanks
  10. Yep thank you! Great job on my beloved SF! You gave her a good and proper face lift. Merry Christmas!
  11. Can't wait for those patches and the new modules for CMFI and CMRT. Hey wait is this just a plot to separate me from more of my money?
  12. Yes you guys have gotten almost as much money from me as my ex-wife!
  13. Thanks Steve, I got it sorted.. My fault actually, when I enter my SF1 key I noticed it said everything was activated BUT SF1 main game. So I went back and looked and I guess at some point I bought the main game THEN bought the 3 module bundle. It was all kind of confusing because I had the original Paradox version too I was upgrading from back then. So the issue was I had to activate my 3 module bundle key and my main game key then it worked. Its all activated now and sorted out. Thank you!
  14. Same issue here. I have the SF1 Bundle and key and it never asked me for that key just the SF2 key then I get that its all activated but then goes to that blank box above.
  15. WO! Its ChrisND back in the house! Great to see your name pop up here again Miss your streams. Are you back in the army soldier?
  16. All worked here! Congrats on the new fancy home! Looks nice.
  17. Steve no doubt I am sure it is hard maintaining ongoing communication here and getting all the work you guys have ahead of you done. Your participation here is very much appreciated but I think most everyone understands you have work to do, heck considering the age group of CM fans I am sure we all have other things we need to be doing But hanging out here of course is more fun. Like I said before and not to repeat myself but I really do personally appreciate your honesty and the information you have provided here tonight. I am super duper times infinity excited about the patch and most of all SF2! I might even find some sand to dump in my underwear just to get the full immersion when that baby comes out! Have a good week!
  18. Thank you for the update and the honesty. You guys do what you need to do, I can only speak for myself but the issue was never about getting the patch ASAP it was more of an open and honest communication issue and you have addressed that here. I personally very much appreciate that. I hope you guys(Devs) don't just look at us as a bunch of entitled kids here yelling for more stuff. It is easy for the testers in this community who know what's going on behind the scenes to keep a cool head and in some cases mock and point fingers at those of us who are not testers for seeking information they themselves generally have. I hope you and the rest of the team understand our frustration and from the sound of your post you do. We love you guys(not in a gay way) and obviously love your product. Hell this game series has been a major part of my entire gaming life, so it is important. Keep up the good work and thank you again for the honest communication. That goes a LONG way!
  19. Steve thanks for the update! Just so I know if I am good to go. I originally had the Paradox hardcopy of SF and then I bought the 3 pack bundle of the modules for it here as a download. Last year I upgraded my base game to a download version here so effectively I have two keys. One for the base game and one for the 3 pack bundle of the modules. If I buy the upgrade for SF2 I should be ok with just having the two keys for the whole thing? Will the big installer sort that out? Thanks!
  20. I assure you I am no entitled snowflake and I think that is an easy defense of their lack of communication. I understand the whole entitlement thing is real now a days but I cant see in any way how this is that. Steve communicated that this is a problem back in Jan.? Indicating that things were looking good or something to that effect? And we are entitled snowflakes 6 months later because we have issues with the total lack of communication since? That is why I hesitated even making my original post because it doesn't seem to take long for the insults to come when one questions BF here. I do not expect anyone to hold my hand nor do I feel entitled to anything other than decent customer service for a product that I have shelled out quite a bit of my hard earned money for. And again my comments are just about some simple communication about what is going on. The lack of that simple little piece of customer service shows a disrespect for the community and customer base that has kept them in business all these years. Now I am sorry I was trying to be very respectful in my comments and concerns and if I get banned now then I guess so be it but I didn't take us down this road.
  21. Oh sure I get that and I am not really talking so much about release of the patch but just some communication to the community who has supported them through thick and thin. That is what really bothers me. I love these game more than any other game I have ever owned and always had big love for these devs but just to put it into perspective. They released a for money engine upgrade that broke the AI. Ok that happens, its game development. Then they say something about it being almost ready or looking good almost 6 months ago and since then not a word. Not a "hey guys we are working on it ran into some issues but we are working on it." Just a little communication goes a long way. Unless I totally missed some communication. It really makes ya wonder if they just cant fix it and they don't want to say it.
  22. Has there been any word at all from BF on the patch? I have supported and bought everything these guys have ever put out and now they just decide to go complete radio silence on fixing something they broke? I hate to sound so negative but dang its hard not to feel like they really just don't care. I have to hope that is not the case but it would be nice for them to at least let us know whats going on. This has always been a pretty loyal fan base but I don't know if it makes good business sense to take that for granted. Sorry for the rant but with the 4.0 issue I really don't even want to play at the moment and its been that way for quite a while now and should have been addressed by now. Unacceptable.
  23. Awesome stuff! Thank you for the Christmas peek! I am so looking forward to this! *throws wallet at the monitor* Merry Christmas Battlefront dudes!
