      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. SC 1 for IOS & Android....

    i would so buy this and have been thinking about it for more then a year lol
  2. i would love to see a mix of close combat/gary grigsby's world at war series and men of war. Were you have the close combat map style for europe. You create units for armies. Then when the armies fight you control them like men of war.
  3. i still play. my email is guesswhotwice@hotmail.com
  4. Usefullnes of strategic bombing

    i dont have that yet, have kinda be out of touch with sc ever since i join the army. im tempted to get that, and find my original sc2 disk.... i have the expansion disks on me lol was the pacific one anygood? or just get the new one?
  5. Usefullnes of strategic bombing

    they are very useful, even as a starter so the planes can get some more. if you leave france open you can knockout so much that the germans lose about 50mmps a turn. would you be interested in a game as i still play just hard to find players online
  6. looking for opponents

    i would also be up for a game
  7. should also have the option to designate certain countries to be controlled by the ai.
  8. the main thing i would like to see in any new patc, expansion number 3 what ever is to have the different magors controlled by different people with the ability to play as germany or italy and have the other controlled by the ai.
  9. hi i am playing this one guy on version 1.02. i got to end the turn and i get this message. failedhandle_weather: segmentation violation ps for some reason my brackets are not working.....
  10. i have heard of this new expansion for a bit of time now but i was wondering if more has been added beside just more scenarios?
  11. Rebirth of SC

    for sure sc1 is amazing multiplayer game. What i would love to see is 1.Total custimizable map, place my own hexes just like sc2 editor. 2.New units like para troopers 3. Desert needs to be a tiny bit wider. 4. Every magor can be played by a human seperatly with selectable sides. Have a selector like dogs of war for this (the pre game now known as axis and allies) http://www.the-underdogs.info/game.php?id=3128 5. Option of weather affects 6. Diplomacy option 7. Better ai like attacking in full force as germans in russia, even when i gave AI to much they would only send piece meal forces to attack moscow. everything before that was fine for the most part. Thats all i can think of for now, still an amazing game.
  12. for malta and other island issues couldnt you surround the island in hexes like the hex that connects denmark to its capital. That way ships can bombard and units can land in the hex to invade.
  13. Hi I know im still playing 1.05a but has this possible issue been dealt with. Im playing a game were i bought alot of planes after USSR fell and seeing if i can push allies out of europe. Well my opponent has lots of air so i countered with the same. I was able to give the unit its tech increase when i bought it but no more upgrades.
  14. Rebirth of SC

    I love sc1 just wish the editor wa better, some extra units like paratroopers and engineers. To have the option between sc1 and sc2 techs. Anything would be nice and i would easily fork up cash to get an update.
  15. Poland

    sure i always take it 2-3 turns. If you email me we can play pbem and you can learn that way.
