      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. Naughty or nice... here's some bones!

    So CMBS stay as it is or we can at least expect module for it??
  2. Reshade Graphics Post-processor

    So i removed all Mods and started CMBS withou ReShade. It works and started little bit faster. But when i re-renamed opengl.dll and opengl.ini back same problem. Immediatelly crah... At least i know now that Mods are not doing this...
  3. Reshade Graphics Post-processor

    After renaming CMBS works fine. I have to say, that game start very slow, quite long time is there black screen and i must wait up to 60 sec then it goes. Maybe i have too much mods?
  4. Reshade Graphics Post-processor

    Thanx for good advice, i have Acer Aspire V17 Nitro with Nvidia Geforce GTX 960M and Win10 I did as you told, but CMBS is crashing. Only when i run with game with integrated graphics i am able to start the game and get into ReShade. When running with Nvidia graphic processor - crash. So i updated my graphic driver to the latest one 390.65 and run clean driver install, restarted notebook and CMBS crashed again. Even with administration rights. You have to know that long time ago i played with nvidia Profile Inspector, but with clean driver install it should be corrected. Or not? How it is possible, that ReShade doesnt work?
  5. Reshade Graphics Post-processor

    I have problem with this... After install when i start CMBS it never start, just error message some windows crash...
  6. Oleksandr's Modding Space

    Hi Oleksandr, can we get your camo also for BTR family of vehicles? Or it has been dona already?
  7. Naughty or nice... here's some bones!

    So where else the ISIL belong then if you have only 2 sides as option?
  8. Naughty or nice... here's some bones!

    What i really would like to know are not infos like game will be in engine 4.0 and then copy taste what all engine 4.0 can do... This we allready know! Will be there in CMSF2 Russian Forces with all toys to play including planes? Will Syrians have UAV and planes? Can we have something like counter battery fire? ISIL forces will be on US Side when choosing forces? Modules stay modules or they will be included from beginning? I am sure others will have more questions to follow...
  9. Naughty or nice... here's some bones!

    BEAT ME, so far only positive news is the discount info. I will buy it to support the Team like i did with every title they launched. I have them all, but still my opinion is CMSF times are gone and i would like to hear something about CMBS...
  10. Naughty or nice... here's some bones!

    I have CMSF and all modules. I paid it once. Now i have to pay it again to get new engine only? Really would like to know what else do we get. Thats my question.
  11. Naughty or nice... here's some bones!

    So the new CMSF2 is just old CMSF running engine 4.0? And that´s all??? So after CMBS i have to downgrade my tanks back to T-55 vs Abrams? Is this really what all player wants?
  12. Oleksandr's Modding Space

    Do you plan to bring your digital camo to BTR-80 series to have it complete?
  13. Oleksandr's Modding Space

    WIth this white mask they looks like Santa Idiots to me now... Sorry
  14. BMP-3 on the firing range

    So do you want to say, that hide command for tanks really works?
  15. Oleksandr's Modding Space

    Just question. Can you make more hulls with different tactical numbers please? Now i have clone BTR-4 army If not possible please do hull without tactical number then. Is the back od this combat turret really flat and nothing there? Anyway now UA vehicles looks so maskirovka greenish pixelish digitalish cool Thanx!
