No NATO Scenarios/Campaigns

Hey guys,

 

I already owned the retail version of CMSF.

Yesterday I bought the 3 module bundle (marines,UK and Nato) and installed it. For whatever reason it doesn't show the NATO scenarios or campaigns when I start the game. I checked

the CMSF folder, and the files for all missions are there. It gets even weirder, because in quick battles I can select all three Nato Forces. But ingame the scenarios and campaigns are just not existing.

 

I installed the game in this order:

 

- CMSF retail

-1.10 update

- 3 module bundle installer

 

It even asks me for the NATO module license and accepts it, yet never shows the missions as available ingame, although I have the NATO module button being shown in the left corner of the main menu.

 

I reinstalled twice and made sure the module are not being blocked by Avira.

 

The Marines and UK module work perfectly.

 

Thanks in advance for all answers. I really hope someone has the answer to this problem.

 

Greetings,

 

Arrad

Hi Arrad,

 

Maybe the install order? only guessing. Try the order below it worked for me. Note taken from a post on forums here thanks to whoever you are, cant remember the poster.

 

"If you have a CMSF module, then you do not need your base game license key (ever again). That's because when you activate a module with a module license key, the base game is activated automatically as well. There is no need to license the base game separately if you intend to install a module with it. For Windows Vista and Windows 7 users we recommend running the installers by right-clicking and selecting "Run as administrator" from the popup menu. The default directory for Battlefront versions is usually '\Program Files\Battlefront\Combat Mission Shock Force' for 32-bit versions of Windows and '\Program Files (x86)\Battlefront\Combat Mission Shock Force' for 64-bit versions of Windows. Please double-check where you install the game and ensure that modules and patches install to the appropriate directory. A new folder/directory in the game's actual directory would be an incorrect location to install a patch to. Most patches will replace the main game executable and you should get confirmation that the patch installed properly by looking for this version number at the bottom, middle of the main menu screen.
 Here is the correct way to reinstall CMSF and its modules (as of patch v. 1.32):
• Install CMSF, do NOT license it if it is a Battlefront version.
• Install the v. 1.10 patch for your distribution (Battlefront or Paradox). This step is sometimes not needed if you have the Marines module, but bundles that include the Marines module may not have all of the necessary files that are part of the v. 1.10 patch.
• If you have the Marines module, install it now.
• If you have the Marines module, launch CMSF and use the Marines license key to activate (this activates both CMSF and the Marines module).
• If you have the British Forces module, install it now.
• If you have the British Forces module, launch CMSF and use the British Forces license key to activate it now.
• Install the v. 1.21 patch. Make sure to make the correct selections for the modules you have. Making an incorrect selection will result in modules disappearing or license key requests for modules you do not have. If you run into this problem reinstall the v. 1.21 patch again and make the correct selections. You must install the v. 1.21 patch BEFORE installing the NATO module.
• If you have the NATO module, install it now.
• If you have the NATO module, launch CMSF and use the NATO license key to activate it now.
• Install the v. 1.31 patch. Make sure to make the correct selections for the modules you have. Making an incorrect selection will result in modules disappearing or license key requests for modules you do not have. If you run into this problem reinstall the v. 1.31 patch again and make the correct selections.
• Install the v. 1.32 patch. Make sure to make the correct selections for the modules you have. Making an incorrect selection will result in modules disappearing or license key requests for modules you do not have. If you run into this problem reinstall the v. 1.32 patch again and make the correct selections."
