      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. Assault on Democracy Ladder

    Me to. Holiday coming up. What better way to spend christmas than with some WW2
  2. Looking fore a game SC WWII G.C. v. 1.04. Prefer to play as Axis. Manage 1+ turn a day. More in the weekends. European time. Anyone? johgjen@hotmail.com
  3. Big Tournament

    Im in. No better than spending time with WW2. And yes, let us spend some time with practicing before a tournament. The amount of possibilities this game gives is blowing my mind.
  4. Global Map

    Thank you fore the answer. It do look awesome, the patience one has to have before the release is painful... But what im looking fore is a detailed picture, where one can see a detailed setup fore the 39 campaign. Each unit identifable.
  5. Global Map

    I second this. A screenshot where one closely could study details etc. If possible even included the initial setup fore the campaign, the order of battle.
  6. 1948 Campaign - GC

    Oslo (Capital) and Narvik is on allied hands. Bergen conquered (Soviet).
  7. A great campaign, fun to play. But i need some help to understanding it. After a while, after the Soviet has conquered most of mainland Europe, the bulk of Soviet tanks has moved to north Russia/Soviet, just by Murmansk. Why, is it fore preparing a amphibious assault ore a move somewhere? Ore is it a fault? There is also a Russian tank moved between Murmans and Narvik. Is there a "reason"? Why, is it fore "defending"? Ore?
  8. Same thing happened to me. I positioned a carrier in Japan, in order to get support fore a attacking aircraft on a invading Soviet unit. No intercept/help against Soviet aircraft.
  9. GOLD Tournament

    I am in to. It would be great!
  10. New player Email game?

    I can if you like. A turn each day, perhaps 2-3 each day in weekends european time (sat - sun). johgjen@hotmail.com. I prefer to be the axis. Ok?
  11. 51, and its terrible...
  12. The WW2 campaign isnt included now?
  13. The online activation didnt work. The manual worked. Now im soon heading fore the trenches.
  14. Nuts

    Im goin to Denmark - Copenhagen next thursday. It probably will be out then. So instead of enjoing a fine holiday, im going to think of all the blodshed that i will be missing...
  15. I understand that the focus of this game is WW1. As i understand there will be a editor who also will cover the WW2 period. Question: Will there be a Fall Weis campaign, like in Sc2WaW included?
