cns180784 Posted December 25, 2011 Share Posted December 25, 2011 Hi everyone im chris, im new to these forums but i've been playing the Combat Mission series of games for some time now. Anyway, some time ago i bought CMSF off a seller on ebay, installed it fine and everything worked fine..playing the game was fine, graphics, sound effects, all seemed right. Not so long ago i downloaded and installed CM Afghanistan from Battlefront.com and thats been fine too. However i have just downloaded and installed the add on for CMSF British Forces, went to play it and its just unplayable. First before i installed British Forces a box came up and said its extremely important to have the original CMSF patched to v1.10, which i hadn't done. So i did, once i downloaded it i put the v1.10 patch in the Data folder for CMSF and thought right, thats done. I then installed British Forces and then went to play it..i loaded a battle called UK British joy, which was to rescue some hostages..im sure those of you who have British Forces will have played that battle. Anyway once the battlefield with my forces loaded up, most of the battlefield was covered in black, except for the ground just nearby surrounding where my troops are. As i moved round the battlefield that blackness goes to reveal what the ground is supposed to look like (desert) it looks like how in some RTS games you have the fog of war, sure you're all familiar with games that have that concept (example: Command and Conquer). Not only that, but when i ordered my troops to fire their weapons, i couldn't hear any sound effects, except for the occasional few, or the whizzing of bullets. Or for example, i ordered a jackal HMG crew to fire their HMG and GPMG, and couldn't hear hardly anything. I then dismounted a sniper team and ordered them to fire and heard the soldiers' L85A2 rifle firing (which sounded just like the M4's the yanks have in CMSF, bizarrely) but i couldn't hear the snipers' rifle sound effects. I also tried playing one of the original CMSF battles with the yanks, and they now come up exactly the same as in British Forces, with the battlefield black and lacking sound effects. It just seems ruined..i hope you all can help me here..maybe i need to config the setup because of the latest patches installed with it..including the v1.10 patch i installed? if so could anyone advise me on how i do this? any help would be greatly appreciated and look forward to your responses, thanks a lot. 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
