  1. If this is the theme that drives BFC and its business strategy, that's crazy. Why does BFC care if "haters gonna hate"? Sarcasm on...Why should BFC care if their customers have knowledge that might help them and BFC? As long as they are giving these detractors ammo to hate them with...sarcasm off. btw, companies doing business with the private sector and the government keep available "known issues" lists. In fact, a good government auditor is going to want to see the bug tracking system. The only reason to hide a "known issues" list is if you don't think it will pass the muste
  2. And this is my point. It was asked why some don't use mods and some of answered. Now you are running a thread trying to argue we are wrong. So what was the true purpose of the thread?
  3. But what fraction? Thats why its always suggested you remove. I've been playing CM since the CMBO demo days. Moving the mod folder is just about minimizing risk. For good reason.
  4. BFC specifically stated to remove mods when patching. There have several changes to textures that screwed up mods from CMSF1 through all the game updates.
  5. IIRC, mods do impact some parts of performance. Steve had stated that large sound files can have noticeable impact on performance of the game itself. And There was some testing done several years ago that showed large hi-res mods noticeably impact scenario loading times. Combining that with the hassle of keeping track of mods, moving around on new installs, and remembering to remove them on patches, I gave up years ago. The gain you get with even the best mods wasn't worth it.
  6. Just post it to BFC's bug tracking system. Just kidding. There isn't one.
  7. For goodness sakes. It's very doable. Instead they have their beta testers and customers do it. Small companies do this all the time for almost no money. My 82 year old mother does it for her photo business. I mean really? This is the best you got to push back with on the "lame" idea that an actual company that makes money can't figure out how to secure a google drive or a dropbox folder. BFC must not be very interested in continuous improvement of its product. I'll come back to this. My elderly mother does it for a much smaller business than BFC. And she did it on her own from
  8. It is free for a limited amount. And because its cheap/free, one would think BFC would be more than happy to create a central place to upload saves from people actually trying to potentially fix the game.
  9. Try the Matrix forums. There is still some support for the descendants of the Talonsoft series. btw, this should probably be in the real General Discussion forum, not the Combat Mission - General Discussion forum.
  10. https://steamcharts.com/app/1369370 Not direct sales numbers, but one benchmark people use to determine new players is to watch CMSF2 concurrent players around release time. CMSF2 was maxed out around 200 within 48 hours of release. But a week or two after release it'll drop. There are sites around that track games on Steam, but Steamcharts is what I have always looked at. For comparison, ARMA 3 comes in around 50k max and 20k current users. So I wouldn't call it gang busters, but its better than a sharp stick in the eye.
  11. Wow. I thought it would take a lot longer for someone to come in and prove my point. I'll start setting expectations a little lower on how BFC wants to be represented.
  12. Finally, someone speaks the quiet part out loud. Have been saying this for years. It is probably 80% of the reason this forum has a bad rep out in the wild.
  13. Its not the worst comment about a game, but its easily the worst comment I have seen from an unofficial team member towards any part of an audience.
  14. I think there are a lot more people out there like landser than anyone cares to admit. Look at the number of people on Steam that said the owned the games, but hadn't played them in years. For BFC and its "fanbois", its a shock to have the state of the market rubbed in their face. Reputations don't get built in a vacuum.
  15. Holy cow. And this type of comment is exactly why BFC and its beta teams have such a poor reputation. Exactly this. Unfortunately, there was a period of time where any negative comment was virtually set upon by people on this forum. And it was condoned by BFC though inaction. Because of that, this forum became its own little insular world. But the internet has a long memory. And exposing BFC to the Steam masses gives those previously aggrieved a forum for revisiting past issues without BFC being able to control the narrative. As soon as BFC made the Steam announcement, I knew what wou
