      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:


      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

      Forum Reorganization   10/12/2017

      We've reorganized our Combat Mission Forums to reflect the fact that most of you are now running Engine 4 and that means you're all using the same basic code.  Because of that, there's no good reason to have the discussion about Combat Mission spread out over 5 separate sets of Forums.  There is now one General Discussion area with Tech Support and Scenario/Mod Tips sub forums.  The Family specific Tech Support Forums have been moved to a new CM2 Archives area and frozen in place. You might also notice we dropped the "x" from distinguishing between the first generation of CM games and the second.  The "x" was reluctantly adopted back in 2005 or so because at the time we had the original three CM games on European store shelves entitled CM1, CM2, and CM3 (CMBO, CMBB, and CMAK).  We didn't want to cause confusion so we added the "x".  Time has moved on and we have to, so the "x" is now gone from our public vocabulary as it has been from our private vocabulary for quite a while already.  Side note, Charles *NEVER* used the "x" so now we're all speaking the same language as him.  Which is important since he is the one programming them

  1. Any info on ....

    Hi guys... Do any of you have info on CMAK One Click to Combat utility? Has it been done? I know someone did for CMBB but still no word for CMAK. Its a great utility. Please let me know any news.
  2. Infantry Killing Pillboxes

    Ok guys...Im the guys playing as the allies in this pillbox controversy. They actually spent 2 direct scherck hits on my pillbox, and yes they appear to be inside the pillbox as well, the truth is that (Taunt) they turn Yellow and ran away like madcows...!!!!
  3. Xbox titles surely!

    I would love to see serious games on the Xbox, I actually own Xbox Live and have played Ghost recon a lot, my experience is that Xbox users are 25 to 35 years old...wich is great for wargamers, that reflects in great tactics and ambience while playing. Right now Xbox would publish Operation Flashpoint wich we hope could be Xbox Live enabled, that will bring a lot of people to Xbox. Also in the Mod comment I agree that Xbox users couldnt get as much as we do but remember that Xbox Live has download content meaning new levels, new skins and so on. Im very passionate to see a game like CMBB, CMBO or Panzer Elite on consoles. A pitty I am dreaming!!! :mad:
  4. Guys, I was having a brawl with a PBEM and there was a situation in wich some enemy 20mm guns were hitting my Stug in the left side and some hits were done at the tracks inmobilizing the tank. I was about 250 meters away from the enemy gun and my crew was regular. They never panic, I just wanted to know if this situation could or was accounted for in any way...some could find this behavior unreal but my grandpa who served in Korea as a mechanic, told me that it could be possible that the guys took the hits because they knew there were low rounds. Could you guys share some toughts?
  5. New Poster with special forces query

    Do not dare to forget The Alamo Scouts in the Pacific Theather. N'uff said. :mad:
  6. CMBB PBEM Helper

    Guys I remember a while back there was a guy who made a PBEM utility to orginize and send PBEM's. The program was called CM: One Click to Combat and the version was Do you know if there is a similar utility for CMBB games? If so could you link me?
  7. air combat

    though you can have an AA battery and cut them in half :mad:
  8. PGNx Media Interviews Battlefront.com

    The journalist was candid about CM and CMBB, in Puertorrican speech....He did'nt knew crap about CM RFLOL
  9. The longest wait

    How weird...Im from Puerto Rico and recieved it 3 days after release...
  10. Would like to see...

    I would like to pass you 2 ideas, I would like to see in the future the ability to buy reinforcements in quickbattles..It could be great to buy a IL-2 to show up in turn 5 or 9 when things are getting rough. My second idea is for the hidden command. Could you in any way include a cammo skin or a canvas semi transparent skin on top of a hidden unit? that could be sooo cool. My best wishes for you and your team.
  11. Im convinced, bought the game!

    Welcome..a word of advice 1- Buy a new CD Rom, you will never pull out the CMBB out of the one you have. 2-Prepare Divorce papers..wife will hate this game. 3-Kill your dog..it demands too much time out of CMBB Optional: Buy CMBO and make a shrine for it.
  12. Dirty T34's release...

    Thank you Sir for those wonderfull mods. For the guys trying to open the RAR files, you can go to http://www.the-underdogs.org and go to the Applications sections they have a program called WINRAR its the best, it opens rar and zips. Ah, also once you are there, go to the Wargames sections you will be amazed on how many things you will find there..I personally recomend Age of Rifles.
  13. TCP IP problems

    Guys I have Win98 and Im using ADSL, I can't Host a TCP/IP. Do you guys have link or a PDF file to teach how to open a hole on the DSL to host?? :confused:
  14. CM 3

    We're not getting a pacific CM unless we mod it. That much I'm sure of. Out of curiosity, who might be interested in a Korean CM game?</font>
