      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

    OK, i didn't know that.

    Its Kieme's BMP, nothing else. This is how i wanted to say it. If you just add Igla Man and later dismount squad, Igla Man stays somewhere in the back of the BMP and the commander seat stays empty. To avoid it do as said: unload the passengers, split off and/or select the element you wish to act as Commander and have them remount in setup or even later during the game.

    Only skins with camouflage are in Oleksandr-CMBS-Infantry-USskins with green gloves. The Ukrainian soldier in the picture does not have gloves and he has on his face a little different masking... Maybe someone else know where to find it... Looks like that russian AK has also scope on it! Very suspicious this picture...
  5. Tactical Lifehack

    Questions: - where do i get this soldier skin? Are there more like this? - how it is possible, that his AKSU has scope??? Is it Kashtan? And is it only mod or is it really in game and working???
  6. Oleksandr's Modding Space

    Can you please remove number 220? Because now we have all vehicles with same number... It will be better without it. Thanx in advance!
  7. Oleksandr's Modding Space

    This is exactly what was missing Thank you
  8. Oleksandr's Modding Space

    Great Idea! But there is still normal BTR-70 with digital camo missing...
  9. Oleksandr's Modding Space

    To answer your question you should probably give us some example of your ideas. But yes i am interested. But before this can you finish Ukrainian BTR-70 with you camo too?

    Really? Nuclear? And without response?
  11. Tactical Lifehack

    Hard to say, in my running testing he spots better when out of turret. I will come back when i will test all vehicles.

  13. How accurate *is* CMBS?

  14. How accurate *is* CMBS?

    Wou, what happened to my pictures from photobucket? How to correct it? Some advice?
  15. Tactical Lifehack

    Exactly. I was working with same "Go and occupy empty Leader place" theory... But now we know it was wrong...
