CM Cold War v1.01 patch is now avilable

Yes.

Make sure the patch didn't create a Cold War subfolder inside your main CW folder and put the .exe there. When I installed the patch it tried to do that. Meaning that when I pointed the patch to my D:\Cold War folder it tried to install to D:\Cold War\Cold War.

I had the exact same thing happen.

Ah, thanks for the hint. I’ll check that tomorrow.

How did you avoid that the patch creates it’s own folder?

When running the patch you can edit the address or type in anything you want. Just delete the last \Cold War part.

I download them to my Downloads folder. There is no need to download a patch anywhere near the game's directory. Then when running it the patch will install to the default installation location unless you "point" it somewhere else.

I have played some canned missions and its playing much better then before. meaning now my American forces are seeing the enemy and the LOS is improved.

 

game play feels much better to me.

Post them in this thread. Go slow, one by one, have savegames and wait for reactions before moving on. Don't "dump" large lists without interaction:

 

 

Probably just a by product of the Soviet Telekinesis experiments. Nina Kulagina was here!

Great, but how do you install it? There are no notes in the patch for new players.

Unzip it to a new empty folder and run the setup program inside said new folder.

Notice I say new folder twice that was on purpose it's vitally important! 🙂

I've just bought it, so I started on Version 1.01 (no patch). The "display size" file isn't working for me. The “display size.txt” is not working for me - it works for the Steam-purchased Black Sea, so I copied the file. No dice. I tried to make a new file. Still not working.

A thought: Is the file in the correct location?  ie: My Documents/Battlefront/Combat Mission/<Name>/display size.txt

MY DOCUMENTS? I put it in the same folder as the .exe because that's what works for Black Sea (bought on Steam). I'll try that when I get home. Thanks.

Hmm.  It's not in my copy of the CMBS "game" with the .exe.  Check to see you may have a duplicate <display size.txt> in your MY DOCS folder for CMBS.  That's where one wants it, not in the .exe folder.

This happened to me and I just copied the contents of the new folder to the old one (selecting to overwrite files) and deleted the now empty new folder - and it's working fine.
