  1. I am working on some UI for H&E Mod and need some flags for some screens. Here are some designs that I am tossing around... any votes for what sides they represent?

    The two sides are...

    • The People's Army of The Free Democratic Republic of Bong-Hai & its People's Militia insurgents (aka "The Roundheads")... they are the Earth component of this narrative & are as similiar to the NVA & VC as we can get them.
    • The Imperial Army of the Divine Kingdom of Bong-Hai & its iconic, M16 wielding Imperial Cavalry (aka "The Cavaliers") .. they are the Heaven component of this narrative & represent both the poorer & better performing elements of the ARVN.

    One thing/query with these wonderful logo's that @xacto has made... there is a small "tm" on them.

    I know absolutely nothing about these legal things... but isn't that something we'll have to remove from the logos?

    As far as I can tell the only thing trademarked with this mod would be CMSF2 itself... so does the current logo imply that we own CMSF2?


    I have a lot of experience with corporate identities (do this for a living)... The current mark is protected by "Common Law Trademark Rights" so the TM can be used as is. The TM signifies that we claim the name/logo as common law and notifies others of the trademark right.

    There is no need to "Register" the trademark (R) unless you want to increase the amount of geographic reach and strengthen your ability to protect the "brand" (unless you want to expand this brand and make a profit in the future ;).

    I like the first, camo, version.....It's suitably ambiguous, whereas the second seems to imply the availability of US units.....To me at least.

    I'd be interested to know where you found the silhouette, it's a direct copy of an old ESCI 1/72 figure (or vice versa):

    The only minor thing that keeps me from insta-downloading is that the guys look more like some tacticool Airsoft players than soldiers. However the map background and the color palette looks great, very professional.

    Yes, I was going for something with a little attitude.  However, funny you say this... I am almost finished with a new theme that shows men running into battle. Stay tuned.... ;)

  5. Just thought I would look into doing some art skinning...

    Where do I find the existing art files? I am on a mac and when I view the package, I only see a few folders/files without any image files. Is there a way to extract them so I have a base to work on?

    Thanks for helping this Noob!

  7. Since the link to the support email addresses is contained in this paragraph, clearly you had an opportunity to read this and elected to not follow instructions. That was your choice and you were free to make it. So far what's followed has been a result of that choice, not our poor service (though we do need to figure out what's going on with the email addresses, even though hardly anybody uses them).




    I am not sure where you get the idea that I did not follow the process. Please re-read my original post above... I DID take the opportunity to read the database and when I could not find a solution I submitted a ticket to the help desk... a few times. I then submitted another ticket to Martin in eIncense in case it was a license issue. In another attempt to get some information I then submitted the EMAIL which you said was my choice and the result of all of this. Not sure how I should take this attitude as a loyal customer, but whatever... I can forward you a couple of the receipts of the email for the ticket if you do not trust me.

  8. Hey Ricky,


    I checked my spam folder from gmail like you suggested and it looks like there are no spams from them. I checked the box "email a copy of this message to your own address" each time i submitted a ticket. This is the only mail I have from Battlefront support. Maybe there is something wrong with their online submitting form? I also emailed them directly from the receipt. 


    About the MAC and PC thing; It was a long story so I did not go into the boring details. Here is the short explanation:


    I ordered the MAC version, however when I received the confirmation with the download and serial number it was for the PC (EXE). While not a big deal as I have boot camp... i contacted them to see if they could switch. So after a week of no contact I decided to see if I could figure it out myself. So I just dual booted up windows and installed the supplied download and when I enter the serial number it said that the serial number was incorrect. Thinking that I had a MAC serial number with a Windows download (in my account section), I downloaded the MAC demo and tried to enter my serial number for this version. Same message : serial doe not work on either.


    All I need is a serial that works. Mac or PC.  :)

  9. Thanks Jardotn,


    Unfortunately, they have never said they are looking into this issue. There has been no communication from any of the emails and support tickets that were submitted. :)  I have been very respectable when communicating my issue, however after  5 different emails and 7 days of no confirmation... I am at a lost. 


    Anyone know a phone number I can call?

  10. Nope... it was CM Red Thunder.


    The issue is not the download - it is the serial number that was provided. And yes... I contacted them 5 times to different links on the support page like I stated above.


    As for Black Sea - I was looking forward to purchasing this - but now?

  11. Can some one PLEASE let me know how to contact these people...


    I purchased the game over 7 days ago (JAN 2nd) and the serial number that was auto sent does not work - I even tired it on the MAC and PC. I have sent out 5 different emails to various addresses (submitted tickets to customer service, e-license, sales, direct support email etc.) and I have not heard anything


    I currently own 4 other games from Battle Front and in the past - had no issues what so ever with download/serials. ​As a loyal customer, I find this extremely frustrating that my money has been taken without a single message letting me know that they are looking into this (after 7 days).


    Any advice would be much appreciated.

  12. I noticed that after I completed a scenario and hit "review map" that the combat victories were not showing up for each individual squad. No number of kills (victories) just basic status.

    I found this information very valuable and interesting - It was also great when creating custom scenarios/maps. Is there a reason why the mac version does not keep track of this information. Or am I missing something in settings that would show this info after the battle.

    Thanks for your help!
