The engine that this game runs on.


Recommended Posts

No the demo uses the same as the released game.

Hummm, maybe I am not really right. The confusion comes from CMx1 and CMx2 do not mean the first and second versions of the current engine. The original games CMBO, CMAK and CMBB used an engine commonly refered to as CMx1 and they were the first versions of the combat mission games.

Then they rewrote the engine and produced CMx2 games starting with CMSF and Afghanistan. That was followed by CMBN. Those games were released with what you could call version 1.0 of the CMx2 engine. I don't know exactly how BFC would like to refer to that but that is how I think of it. The next thing they did was create a 2.0 version of that CMx2 engine and create CMFI with that 2.0 version of the engine. Then they also released an update to CMBN so it too now has the 2.0 version of the CMx2 engine. I do not know if the demo for CMBN was updated to 2.0 of the CMx2 engine or not.

Now, recently they released version 3.0 of the CMx2 engine in CMRT. BFC have stated that they intend to create an upgrade for CMBN and CMFI to give them the 3.0 version of the CMx2 engine. It seems like this is the plan going forward that as they improve the engine they will create updates to bring the old games along. They have even said they plan to do the same for CMSF but they have not really given a clear time line for that - not that I can find in the public record.

Thank you for clearing that up for me! =D
