Arguably the #1 "semi-negative" feedback we have received across the 'net ever since CMANO was launched has been a variation of: "This looks very interesting, but I'm not prepared to spend [full price] to give it a try. Give me a free or cheap demo / limited version and I'd gladly take a shot at it."
Looks like the MNO developers are trying to ignore reality and the marketplace the same way they ignore the Laws of Physics in their database and air combat. Nearly every criticism of MNO has focused on both its unplayability and exhorbitant price. However, the developers know that they have exhausted the pool of suckers willing to pay $80 for this joke of a game and are desperate to find new victims.

Instead of fixing their game and making it playable or fun, they re-package it with a few scenarios and hope that there is a new crop of suckers willing to part with their hard-earned money. Well, the market has already spoken and rejected this game at $80, $60, $50, and $40. The game might have a chance when it drops to $20, but it certainly seems as though everyone already knows this game is not worth a penny more.

Looks like MNO hasn't been able to resolve the Screen Clutter problem, even after two years. Oh, well. Maybe next year.

In direct response to a request from Brian Liddicoat

Just saw the release video re: Command: Air/Naval Ops: "Northern Inferno" DLC. It would be great to see you play this when it's released.

An authentic AAR video will be recorded showing exactly how this game works.

Looks like the v1.09 wipes out any previous game license.

"I own CMANO without the addon but whenever i want to start anything like a normal scenario or even create blank scenario the game tells me: 'to perform the requested action you need a license for: comman - modern air/naval operations...' "

Be sure to run under Administrator-level authority when installing.

The Steam issue has been identified and a suitable solution provided: http://steamcommunity.com/app/321410...8526571383000/

The issue is Steam sometimes needs admin level access to do its ownership checks. The solution is to run the Steam client under administrator priviledge.

Tried to start the NI campaign from the beginning and immediately hit this bug report on the first scenario.

This occurs on two computers, WinXP SP3 and Win7 Pro.

4gB RAM Quad Core 2.8gHz Intell7 -64 bit

Looks like running the installation as an Administrator is not a guaranteed fix, as there are still quite a few customers unable to play the game.

After the update to 1.09 failing and the suggestion that I now need to run Steam as an administrator and the comment that this is a common issue on Steam with other games? No it isn't, I've been on Steam for eight years and I've never had to do that. Running Steam as an Admin is a major security concern. I deleted Command. All the scenarios were scripted anyway the AI is almost non existent and the update process is flawed NI should have just been a DLC. I want my money back.

I like his solution.

I understand many people have gotten this working, but I've tried everything (including deleting my local game files) and nothing is working. I've tried running steam as admin and running the game executable as admin.

I'm not sure what else to do, but I do agree that running this game (or steam) as admin is a big security risk that I'm not willing to take over the long run.

For anyone looking to download v 1.09, here are some links (the v 1.09 update comes with Northern Inferno, but you have to purchase the license to unlock those scenarios...but everything else in the update to v 1.09 is free if you already own Command)...

Looks like it is still suffering from License issues.
