i bought cmbb (cm2) at comp-usa about 2 weeks ago. i dl patches 1.01 and 1.02. i tried to patch and/or reinstall and patch many times. no luck. i posted asking for help in the general forum. i got 2 replies (thanks, guys!) saying i had illegal european version and i had to dl european patch.

how could comp-usa sell an illegal version?

i trried to dl the european versions. the only site to do that is cdv and it wont let me. says, "access from unauthorised site".

so now what? i cant patch up. and even if i do, what is to guarantee future patches will work with my "illegal version", which i paid legal money for and which is a game i LOVE!

can someone tell me what i should do?

thanks, fellow time travellers to a world of conflict and skill.

CompUSA sold the CDV version because it's the only retail version available. Some distributor that CDV deals with sold it to some North American retail stores (so it is a fault of this particular distributor and not necessarily CDV). This issue has been settled apparently.

I'm not sure how CDV is supporting CMBB (Combat Mission 2 as they call it). There was the Combat Mission 2 website, which is giving the 'unauthorized access' for an HTTPS site (I have no idea what they're doing).

Here's a site to get the CDV Combat Mission 2 patch v. 1.02 - English (~15.6Mb).
