So I just bought Black Sea now what?


Recommended Posts

Ok just bought Black Sea and 1st module. For Black Sea I chose download, disk, and manual ( as this is first game) so I see the order numbers in " my account" - where do I download the game from ? I kinda thought there would be a download now button or something

also I assume the manual and disk will be mailed , is there a digital version I can read somewhere 

Ok just thought to check my Email , So you down load from an email sent by Battlefront ?

so how could I read a manual before mine arrives via snail mail , or is there one in the files of every game ?

thanks in advance

How do you want to open this file 

choices are:

look for an app in the Microsoft store

internet explorer

notepad

paint

wondows media player

word

wordPad

So again I assumed this would appear as an icon on the desktop , what app do you guys use?

Try right clicking on the downloaded zip and select the 7zip options. Or open 7zip and drag it in

Well initially the download got loaded on internet explorer app , without help from the forum members and no installation instructions, I went with that after 2 hours , then 82nd told me to get 7zip and for some odd reason that did not load as an installed app , it gave me a zip file  ( little zipper looking thing ) and had the 2 GB file in it , but would not open. I retried to load the7xip this am And the app loaded on my desktop. Last PM in a desperate attempt to get the game to work I moved it from internet explorer to a Microsoft word app then to 7zip.

On this 7zip app I now see 15 files of CMBS 

 

pictures to big to load

You only downloaded the installer, it won’t automatically install the game for you. The downloaded file should be of type RAR which is a form of zipped file (assuming you’re on Windows), you can check by right clicking on the file and selecting properties. That should tell you what type it is. If it’s not a RAR file then something likely went wrong in the process and you’ll have to download it again.

Once you’ve got the RAR file right click on it and select 7zip > Extract to here, it may take a small while but when it’s finished you should find a .exe file that you need to double click, going off memory I think it may be called setup.exe or something like that, it’s icon looks like the game icon if that helps. 

That will run the setup process and you can choose where to install the game (I would leave it as the default) and you will have options to add shortcuts to your desktop etc. Once it’s successfully installed you can safely delete the RAR file and the files that were extracted

I think we can all agree that the system of locating/identifying our orders, downloading and installing games, patches, updates etc is not at all intuitive.  We can only hope that with the money BF is making (or should be making) from their defense contracts that they will, in the not too distant future, acquire the programming staff to revamp the website... and redo the whole system.
