Hi,

I left the Battlefront Combat Mission world many years ago because of the licensing and distribution problems. I now have decided to give it a try again so I downloaded the RT demo. It "crashed to desktop" half way through the first scenario. I have a powerful, well maintained and up to date (drivers etc.) Windows 10 PC that is successfully running many other sims. Question: Is the demo I downloaded from this site an old demo? Was it known to crash?  Any way to test if this has been fixed? Thanks for any help.

I guess, you would need to give more technical information, so that those „who know“ can give a qualified answer.

But two things come immediately to my mind:

- Do you work on a lap top with on board video chip?

- If not what‘s your video card, anyway? A long time ago,  I had crashes to desktop, while playing with an old card with too little memory.

GunofRusted,

Try and turn 'Shaders' Off on both the Video Card and the Game Start-up Screen (Options-Advanced)...Then has been some issues with players (including myself) where a Game would Crash half-way through a Scenario or Turn.

I appreciate the many good suggestions and comments and will follow-up on these. I use a Windows 10 PC (not laptop) with a Nvidia 1080ti and i7-7700. I will try another demo module as suggested and try the other items mentioned (the Shaders suggestion seems good). I do believe however, given the reliability of my platform on every other major military, flight and driving simulation,  that the problem may be related to the demo (old demo version? un-patched demo version?) but who knows. Thanks again.

In my experience the CM games universally have been rock solid stability wise on my current half crappy laptop and my previous crappy laptop.

Same.  I have the graphics turned way down of course but it runs nicely and I can play anywhere.
