Tried on my work computer now, same result. "The link you are trying to access does not exist." along with a button to go "back to sign in".

Am I supposed to log in to download the patch? I tried the login button on the page https://battlefront.sharefile.com/ but I don't seem to have credentials there. At least my main battlefront account credentials don't work.

It's working for me too. Try this link:

Also, try using a different browser.

This link works just fine, thank you kindly!

I tried IE11, Edge and Chrome on the original link. All 3 browsers still give me the same "invalid link" error page, so no idea what's going on there. Out of curiosity: does it still work for you if you try it in incognito mode on your browser? Maybe you guys have something in the browser cache from an earlier visit that keeps it alive, but for newcomers it fails?

If it still works, then I've no real idea, but I got the file now, so at least I'm good.

Cheers!

I use Firefox, but I just tried Edge (which I've not used for anything) and got to the same download links as before without logging in, clicked the PC one and 5 seconds later I had the patch.  So it seems it's not to do with the browser cache.

Anyway, thanks to @BFCElvisyou now have the patch so that's the main thing 😉.

Would anybody have the final blitzkrieg v102.brz?
The link to the patch is broken.
I'm looking forward for the other titles of the serie to be available on Steam too :)

Edit :
found it! The Wayback Machine saved me here

sorry, was refering to what a few have mentioned previously, i may be bit late to party lol... missing FO and so so, has the new 4.03 patch been rectified to show all now?

I have no idea. Nothing new is being worked on for CMFB at this moment (we've got enough balls in the air right now). The only 2 PBEM games that I have going are with CMFB and I haven't seen anything funky. If there is something more specific than "missing FO and so so" I will definitely look into it. (I have FOs in one of the battles that I'm playing........)

ok, ignore me for this issue lol.... I've only recently purchased CMFB, my game is already up to date with v2.03, now just checking, I don't need the previous patches as I've already got the most up to date version right? 

(the patch read me in install folder only show v2.03, and not v2.01 + v2.02)

Gotcha. No worries.  The Readme file may mention what you're talking about in the changes for each patch. They're certainly more reliable than my memory. 

Enjoy the game. I think you're gonna really dig it.

Link to a fixed version of the JPzIV 70 V (early) >>>        Fixed model download mediafire 652kb

This is the model file found in the 2.03 patch, I just fixed the texture names inside the .mdr. Only the main lod (highest level of detail) included.

Also the JPzIV early had the same problem its mudguards, so fixed that too.

what does one do with the mdr file? lol newb

 I've come across a few TOE issues in the recent patches. For what it's worth, I put all those remaining in 2.03 into a list - in the hope they get noticed and fixed one day...

Quick Battle TOE Issues:

Infantry tab:
2 x Identical Wehrmacht Fusilier Companies (duplicate formation?)
2 x Identical Wehrmacht Fortress MG Battalion (duplicate formation?)
2 x Identical Wehrmacht Panzerschreck Company (duplicate formation?)

Reported

Quote

Specialist Teams Wehrmacht Forward Observer - Missing
Specialist Teams Wehrmacht Flamethrower Team - Missing
Specialist Teams Waffen SS Forward Observer - Missing
Specialist Teams Waffen SS Flamethrower Team - Missing

Armored Infantry tab:
Specialist Teams Waffen SS Forward Observer - Missing
Specialist Teams Waffen SS Flamethrower Team - Missing

The flamethrower teams are available, albeit only under the Armored Infantry tab. I think that is correct. I've reported the missing FO teams.

Quote

SS Panzergrenadier Battalion 44A: - The option to dismount platoons results in squads in Wehrmacht uniforms. Reported this 2 years ago, still present in 2.03.  Further details: http://community.battlefront.com/topic/134648-waffen-soldiers-in-heer-uniforms/

Reported

Quote

Armor tab:
Panzerjager Battalion 44 - Jagdpanzer selection gives only Hetzers, no models of JgPzIV available.
This appears to be a different formation to the Panzerjager Battalion 44 in the Scenario Editor TOE with different options.

I'm not seeing this. I see options for JPz IV, Hetzer , StuG and Marder.

Quote

Hetzer (early) - seems to be unavailable in any formation or as single vehicle

I think BFC may have changed their minds about the availability dates. In Red Thunder the Hetzer (early) is only available through August. Beginning in September the late version is the only one available.  Final Blitzkrieg starts in October.

On the US tables:

Armored Infantry tab:

Specialist Teams - Airborne 57mm AT Gun - an Airborne unit present in Armored Infantry tab? Wears standard US army uniforms - so just the name is wrong?

Specialist Teams - Can't find any specialist M1917 teams in Scenario Editor or QB purchase screen.

Reported.

Pz IVJ (early) lacks interior texture in game.

The texture is actually present in the archives... just the format is slightly wrong...

pz-ivj-interior.bmp  is a bitmap, but the alpha channel does not appear as a 1 bit alpha, the game requires this for most object textures that have transparencies (0 or 255, black or white, no inbetween values).

Jace, not suggesting this isn't the case for vehicle interiors, but alpha channels can have grey values for some textures, plenty of the terrain objects allow for this. I don't know what determines whether grayscale or black & white is used for the alpha in game but quite happy to take a look at this one if you haven't fixed it already.

Thanks for reporting the bugs I spent cataloging. As regards the one you didn't see...

I see this in Quick Battle formation selection: Panzerjager Batt 44 (armoured)

LkXqaE0.jpg The option for JPz IVs is highlighted as a sub-option under self-propelled gun, you just don't get any JPz IVs, only Hetzers. As I stated, this is different to the scenario editor version TOE options.

I can't find an US M2HB 50.cal specialist infantry teams anymore either (infantry or armored inf.) They definitely used to exist as they appear as add-on units to formations in some scenarios included in Final Blitzkrieg. If you want any you have to use a formation like the AA Platoon.

Specialist Teams - Airborne 57mm AT Gun - an Airborne unit present in Armored Infantry tab? Wears standard US army uniforms - so just the name is wrong? - Look like it should be a mortar team actually looking at the specialist lists.

Also, it's nearly 18 months since the last patch, is there ANY news on patch progress? We have been more than patient.

I can confirm the first and I also noticed the lack of the .50cal HMG. It is missing both in the scenario editor and the Quickbattle selection.

Ok, so the option is there but clicking on it does nothing. I added that and the M2 HMG to the list. The Airborne 57mm issue was previously reported.

I really don't know what BFC's plans are.

One more:

In Quick Battle TOE, German Armor, Flammpanzer Company formation is available to buy in October 1944 without any tanks. It is literally an empty formation. It finally gets vehicles in Jan 1945, but from Oct to Dec 1944 is empty. Also, the AI will often buy multiples of these empty formations in quick battles if you leave the AI to buy its own units, wasting points on "nothing".
