Hi all,

Got into watching a number of CM AARs on YouTube and this forum came up a number of times.

Brand new to CM (just bought the FI big bundle) and wanting to learn. I've seen a fair bit about the CMHelper which I will install this weekend but would also love to play some learning games with some of the more experienced guys on here as I feel I may not have a full grasp of all that is possible with CM yet.

Looking forward to it.

Greetings, @VonPlutz! You should soon receive @Hedgehog's Welcome Wagon hand-outs! They make good reading.

When you are ready for H2H play, consider using CMHelper to manage your matches.
Then, post your first request for a match either here or at the forum for the game(s) you own.

Welcome to The Few Good Men. Good luck and good gaming in the Italian sunshine! Have fun.

@Badger73

Is there a way to have CMHelper look for the game in a different directory?

I don't have it installed on my C drive which is where it defaults to.

I did a re-install to put it under my C drive but it still isn't finding the files.

Anyone have any ideas how to fix this?

Error is: Didn't find your CM Fortress Italy installation: Couldn't find the Incoming/Outgoing directories at...

Good you have been able to fix it, you can edit 'installs' AFAIK, sometimes CMH doens't want to listen directly and needs some more convincing :)
