      Special Upgrade 4 Tech Tips   12/27/2016

      Hi all! Now that Upgrade 4 is out and about in large quantities we have now discovered a few SNAFUs that happen out in the scary, real world that is home computing.  Fortunately the rate of problems is extremely small and so far most are easily worked around.  We've identified a few issues that have similar causes which we have clear instructions for work arounds here they are: 1.  CMRT Windows customers need to re-license their original key.  This is a result of improvements to the licensing system which CMBN, CMBS, and CMFB are already using.  To do this launch CMRT with the Upgrade and the first time enter your Engine 4 key.  Exit and then use the "Activate New Products" shortcut in your CMRT folder, then enter your Engine 3 license key.  That should do the trick. 2.  CMRT and CMBN MacOS customers have a similar situation as #2, however the "Activate New Products" is inside the Documents folder in their respective CM folders.  For CMBN you have to go through the process described above for each of your license keys.  There is no special order to follow. 3.  For CMBS and CMFB customers, you need to use the Activate New Products shortcut and enter your Upgrade 4 key.  If you launch the game and see a screen that says "LICENSE FAILURE: Base Game 4.0 is required." that is an indication you haven't yet gone through that procedure.  Provided you had a properly functioning copy before installing the Upgrade, that should be all you need to do.  If in the future you have to install from scratch on a new system you'll need to do the same procedure for both your original license key and your Upgrade 4.0 key. 4.  There's always a weird one and here it is.  A few Windows users are not getting "Activate New Products" shortcuts created during installation.  Apparently anti-virus software is preventing the installer from doing its job.  This might not be a problem right now, but it will prove to be an issue at some point in the future.  The solution is to create your own shortcut using the following steps: Disable your anti-virus software before you do anything. Go to your Desktop, right click on the Desktop itself, select NEW->SHORTCUT, use BROWSE to locate the CM EXE that you are trying to fix. The location is then written out. After it type in a single space and then paste this:

      -showui

      Click NEXT and give your new Shortcut a name (doesn't matter what). Confirm that and you're done. Double click on the new Shortcut and you should be prompted to license whatever it is you need to license. At this time we have not identified any issues that have not been worked around.  Let's hope it stays that way Steve

  8. sure. pzsaurkrautwerfer had some good anecdotes from his time in country and also relating a cav scouts experiences in GW1. Im also interested in the sarin ied incident. did it really happen, why didmt the dubya regime jump all over it as some sort of proof about WMDs (lol) and if one shell was used... why not more? what there was one chemical shell in all of Iraq left? I would say if the rest were captured it could be classified but that would have been at least half assed justification for the invasion. if not and if Iraq gave theirs away to Syria and or Iran like I think where the f!$# did that one shell come from?
  9. oh idk. agent orange seems to be winging it
  10. Im not as worried about a nuclear confrontation between Russia and the US as I am with N Korea. It truly seems to me ineviteable there will be a war in the Korean peninsula, today, tomorrow, and IMO opinion at least certainly within the next 15 years. The DPRK really has nothing to lose and I fear that even if it doesnt aggressively act an eventual coup or revolution or imminent collapse of the state will lead the Kim regime to having a use it or lose it strategy vis a vis invading S Korea or things just getting exceptionally messy. What really also troubles me are the reports that the US on N Koreas July 4 test had Kim Jong Un under observation at the missile test site for 45 minutes and could have struck and killed him ( well.. hopefully him) and didnt go for it. even with the propensity of body doubles and whatnot with no clear heir apparent and Jong Uns extreme speeding up of their missile and nuclear program vs his father and grand father means that really any N Korean general or communist lackey would probably be preferable to Jong Un. And whose to say a B1B massive JDAM strike on the missile and 'whoops we didnt know Kim was there' wouldnt lead to an internal coup or revolution and reunification? All I know is that the DPRKs propaganda demonizes the West and fantasizes about nuking America more than even the worst of Soviet propaganda, and their way more a threat than ISIS or Al Qaeda could ever be. To top that we already have fought a very bloody war with them and to be fair they have consistently pushed and pushed since then for a larger military that could be used aggressively and nuclear weapons and missiles coupled with clear statements their intention is to nuke America. If I had a very violent knife fight with someone down the st and since then theyd turned their house into an armed camp and continued from purchasing knives to guns to now having a TOW missile perched on their balcony aimed at my house and were regularly distributing leaflets in my neighborhood about their intention to blow me into ash.. Id end the threat sooner than later. like when the TOW launcher's missile comes in the mail next week.
  11. oh they definitely werent T72Bs or any sort of Russian domestic version. plus one could say that GW1 and the years of sanctions and no military aid to OIF equalled a drasticallly reduced in strength and morale terms Iraqi army. This isnt of course to take anything away from what the BluFor did in OIF in military terms it was a blitzkrieg campaign of the truest sort, but I wonder if it would have been possible to just invade after a couple days of heavy airstrikes a ala GW1 instead of month long air campaign. I think it would have been a much bloodier affair on both sides with an Iraqi army that didnt yet know what the US could do to it. Plus when you get down to it besides some small acquisitions the Iraqi army used much the same equipment in 03 as 91 whereas the US had gained upgrades to its m1s, b2s, javelins, jdams, and a huge advantage in morale that was the victory over Iraq before at a seemingly innocous cost for the Coaliation ( of course unless you were one of the ' light ' casualties )
  12. ISTR exceptionally heavy rpg 7 US in 2003 and Im also certain that At5s were used in Nasiriyah and the Thunder Run into Baghdad. I also really strongly seem to remember Kornets were used against US tanks as well. one incident i particularly remember reading about was an m1 that was mission killed in Baghdad and other m1s in its platoon were ordered to destroy it with their cannons, to destroy anything for the enemy etc. apparently the m1s had trouble penetrating the other m1. i also remember explicitly hearing about Bradleys KOing T72Ms with their 25mm cannons using DU rounds. of course all of this is aneceotal, im not going to bother looking for citations. p.s. i also remember in the early insurgency a Sarin (? or vx ?) shell was used as an IED on a US convoy. no one was killed by nerve agents however due to shell degradation and the facttbat as a safety measure the shells rotationin flight mixed chemicald to make the said chemical weapon. the soldietd gas warning tabs on their unfirorms along with a smell did lead to several soldiers receiving atrophine (sp?) shots.
