      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

  2. Module pack don't work?

    Works now! " #!/bin/sh # Activate New Products.sh # # Created by Battlefront.com, Inc. on 10/19/16 # DIR="$( cd "$( dirname "${BASH_SOURCE[0]}" )" && pwd )" open -n "$DIR"/"CM Black Sea.app" --args -showui " Just dropping this file on Terminal.... works. And a big thx to the Battlefront crew!!!
  3. Module pack don't work?

    Thank you all for the responses @ sburke, I think that it's missing a thing from the beginning, from the extraction or maybe something different with the new Os High Sierra? Not for me @IanL, seems something to to with a error in that script (I think) because I did run it in script-debugger and I got an error in the same line as in the Terminal... " chmod a+x (Activate New Products - CMBS) -bash: syntax error near unexpected token `(' MyBuddys-iMac:~ mybuddy$ " A big ? for me So this is more a thing for the helpdesk (I already send yesterday a ticket, no answer on the subject yet) Maybe it is something in the install script or a wrong renaming for an extension to a text file? I got no troubles for installing Red Thunders 5 years ago but then this was on an other Os and a other iMac Kind regards,
  4. Module pack don't work?

    Thank you for the reply Splinty, But no go... the contents of the game are showing none of the needing files, shortcuts.... Also I looked in all the other dir's.... and did a deep search.... no shortcut Maybe a full delete with AppDelete and a full re install?
  5. Module pack don't work?

    It create only a text file "Activate New Products - CMBS" And nothing else..... " #!/bin/sh # Activate New Products.sh # # Created by Battlefront.com, Inc. on 10/19/16 # DIR="$( cd "$( dirname "${BASH_SOURCE[0]}" )" && pwd )" open -n "$DIR"/"CM Black Sea.app" --args -showui " Any help?
  6. Module pack don't work?

  7. Hi all, I downloaded the game first "CM Black Sea v200 Installer" and I activated it with the serial... it runs flawless. Next I downloaded the module pack "CMBS Mac v210 Patch Installer" did the install but I got no activation field?! So I tried to start the game and it shows in the right corner V2.10... but all the new battle or campaigns are grayed and seems not working... the one in white runs fine.... What do I wrong? any help here... Kind regards,
  8. Pitrovsk project is absolute one word: W0W... and for the rest i'm speechless...
  9. Hi Nelson. I already tested the preview for an hour or so... now I did played the full release... 3 times! First time a full defeat for my German pixel troops, second time a small win but the 3rd time it was a great victory. Good battle and a great map! I hope to see more that kinds of maps or battles. I thank you Nelson for this great game playing. Regards.
  10. Scenario sizes?

    Nelson, Loading in the data was fast up to 49% then a little slower up to 79% after that is was again faster. Playing Axis. The game runs fine and gives me a lot of war, wave after wave is coming out of the woods... The wave from the west was stoppable in the frontline but then came the big wave from the south-west hitting my left flank and rolled-over... Almost 1 hour done... Here some action from the battlefield : http://youtu.be/D4YclCp8H_Q So NO trouble at all with loading the game data or run and playing the game even with running stuff in the background. Nice battle field and great map! Greetings, .
