  1. Thanks guys. Helpdesk states I bought it the year before the battlepack came out . I guess its not retroactive Not an issue. Ive got more than Ill ever use anyway Just wondered what was happening
  2. Ive reinstalled it twice more now. Ive used the 3.12 installer and the 4.03 installer. Same results. It still doesnt add the battlepack. All the other content is fine. There is a pdf about the battlepack in the base directory. It says to click on a link to get extras. but the link doesnt work. I cant see the battlepack itself and the scenarios are blanked out in game.
  3. Ive been away for a few years and have just reinstalled. Id previously bought the big bundle. So that seems to include the battle pack. Ive inserted my activation code for the bundle and for the 4.0 upgrade. I can see all my commonwealth stuff etc. But there doesn't seem to be a battle pack. Am I missing something? I Thought this came with the bundle
  4. Thanks guys. Once I found that display size.txt file I now have something I can work with . Just need to find the right res I can live with. Shame i cant just have hi res and scale the UI up interdependently
  5. so Id be putting in 2560 1440 0 ? Interpolate ? Id like a solution that doesnt mean I have to change all my monitor settings every time I play one game. Im not sure what your actually meaning here. My gpu is a 2080ti so its not tasked by the game. But at high res the UI is far too small. 1280 x 960 Looks terrible on a 32in monitor
  6. Is there a way to play at a better resolution than the 1280 x 960 proposed in game. My desktop is 4k and that makes the UI far too small to use. Is there a way to force the game to be 1440 or have a bigger UI ? I dont really want to have to alter my whole desktop to accommodate one game :( Any ideas guys?
  7. Before someone tells me to use search I have. Its clear as mud If I jump in and get SF2 do I have to buy SF1 and then upgrade it? Threads Ive read seem to be saying this. Im hoping theres a buy it all 1 click installer. If there is how much does it cost? I read release is expected end of July? Ive been away a long time and Im really looking forward to this and the new Italy gameto drag me back
  8. Karballa gap and Fallujah for me . But with only a little modding of infantry skins we could have a Mogadishu. Id play that
  9. Thanks for the input guys. Frankly Im shocked by the lack of information from the developers. I know they are a small outfit but still... Im also a bit disappointed that its just an update to v4 rather than something new. A historical Iraq or other future gulf setting would have been good. I guess though one desert can stand in for another and I can pretend The original shock force demo got me into these games. Im really looking forward to this setting more than any other to be honest.
  10. Ive been away a year or so. I hear there's to be a shock force 2. Yes I have tried to search the forum for the answer but couldn't find anything about eta. Anyone got news re this? I was a little disappointed that its still based in Syria 2008 but hey. That's probably preferable to the sci fi all tanks have aps thing in Black Sea
  11. Ive just upgraded to the 4 engine. Im finding that my Veins special effects mod doesnt appear to be working as it did. First impression is something is wrong with the smoke. Im getting these weird star shaped white smoke puffs that look awful. The game seems to want to default to vanilla rather than the mods. Anyone with insight and anything that can help much appreciated
  12. Lost my computer and with it my vanilla campaign saves. Ive been away awhile form the game and keen to return. I cant really face playing everything from the start again. Anyone out there who could supply a save game further on in the vanilla campaigns would be a great help to me. Specifically Im looking for a save of Ukrainians on mission 2 USA mission 4 ( the one after the big fight where its huge russian force and you have just air and arty to hold them. ) and Russia mission 3 I was playing on veteran but I'll take whatever Im given. Hope someone can help . much appreciated
  13. Ive been away from CM games for a while and have a new computer. On return it looks like the repository is phased out and the http://cmmodsiii.greenasjade.net/ site seems to have taken over as the official modding repository. But there doesnt seem to be a lot of mods there for BS at all. Why is BS the odd one out?
  14. I suspect that the drone used is civilian. We see it take off and land vertically in the film where its being serviced by thes guys i the slit trensh. I suspect that its a large multi rotor drone with a good quality camera being used by some Russian media outlet. A military drone would have symbols overlaying the images I suspect.. Also the composition is directed by what will look impressive. Its being driven by asthetics not military considerations. eg it watches the tanks it doesnt search for targets for the tanks. Its a lovely piece of work regardless of source. Beautiful in its own horrifying way.
  15. So how did it end. Was there any armor or did it all just end with a whimper?
  16. Listen to all that chanting " god is great. " . It just shows how different our cultures are at times. Its just a weapon system FFF. I never thought Id see the day where I was thinking's "go Ruskie!".lol. Those SU 25's are cool.
  17. Worth remembering that footage is from Damascus. That's the capital. Can you imagine this scale of destruction in your capital . I dont think that the USA / west view in Syria is especially benevolent. Its a big proxy war. Like Vietnam now. With states like Iran getting it on vs Saudi Arabia etc. With the exception of Iran most of the players are just paying money rather than blood. Which I think is a bit scummy. But thats politics for you. The head lopping ISIS is the wild card. Who would want them to win. On the other hand someones clearly paying for them to fight , If not to win. I think the Russians might be right. I dont think the country can have any kind of unification while ISIS is still functioning.
  18. Check out this drone footage. Some cool tanks in action in spectacular background that looks like a modern Stalingrad. When you se this city you wont wonder why there's a refugee crisis.
  19. Your thinking of General Võ Nguyên Giáp re the grab them by the belt. buckle.
  20. Slim you seem to be taking a deliberately provocative stance with your peers just to antagonize them. You can make a point without going out of your way to be insulting as you are . Or are you Trolling your fellow gamers for fun? either way its unwarranted in this community.. Demographically I dont see many children playing this game . I think its pitched at high teens + by its content and complexity. But I could be wrong.
  21. I think a bit of blood could add something. At the moment we have a degree of abstraction. I believe that an optional gore setting is fine. In Total War the blood mods have been around a long time and are fun. and using them is totally optional. Gaming is about fun. Part of that is immersion. If your happy with the game looking like a tabletop game like an animated Squad Leader, or like a old black and white John Wayne ww2 movie or like it really was with all the dismemberment and gore. They are all correct.If my rig was up to it Id be going for full realism. I wouldn't call people who want the game running at a board-game level of abstraction stupid. Maybe a bit behind the times? All respect to you . Play the game how you want, but dont expect other people to just make do. Were not playing with cardboard pieces anymore. Id just like to point out that the limit is the technology and we are in the 21st century. Adequate is not just good enough
  22. Im pretty sure I read that instead of getting into a vehicle and equipping more ammo, I can be near a vehicle and it ammo shares with me like other troops would. Am I remembering that right? Also with sharing , do units have to be doing nothing to share , so sharing in spare time . Or can they share while both firing? Many thanks.
  23. Lets get real though, Infantry getting killed isnt going to be just red dots even from bullets . Then just think about the big guns and the arty. Its people shot to pieces . heads off. limbs off, entrails hanging from trees and worse. Im all for it . I think It'll add something to the game. However it'll be r18 and not to everyone liking
  24. That fixed it. However now my hit decals are missing. That's new. Just getting black splotches
