      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

  8. Hey Guys the ww2 is not finish at all and there is a lot to do before... I m not very agree with futurist and experimentals units...CM have to stay realiste like he do it perfectly untill now...I hope... I am very exiting to see the face of • Rome to Victory • New CMRT Module And be very curious to see the "link between" all CMs modules and how BF will do it to finish the war...hope to see Remagen bridge... and some actions in France with FFi FFL and Partisans... And for later... What I ask BF is to bring us more deep in the past with One of them... • Specials units : also German Branderburger special unit, French, Russian Resistance Volksturm Units with also boys and girls civilian peoples can take part of little fight Berlin Stalingrad..including SAS Lisle carabine gun for night operation, engeneer can build bridges.... • Invasion of Poland, • pact Germ Rus • Rus vs Finland • Afrika Korps • Battle of France combat see Somua Pz ii iii... in actions and many many others vehicles from begining of war... including Fall of Hollland and Belgium taking strategics points with paras troops and boats... • Or let us discover the Pacific • Fall of Yugoslavia • Fight Greece • Kreta • Spanish civilian war • Korea and also the famous • Fulga Gap or let us taking the idea from JoMc67...with a conflict • Usa Allied vs Russia with eventual rearmament from Germany this will be also very interresting and let us enjoy Patton idea. • Middle East war In the game perhaps New terrain pack like most of us would like like big factory... Including more floatings icons and fix somes bugs I know the patch in on the way... • One suprem Hq or command units icon. • Detached unit Scout icon. • Perhaps created news icons to make differences between squads with roman number I II III or one two or three blacks points on icons squads something to see the differents squads... I think there are enough theatres that peoples would like to see, before starting to go to Mars... But please dont come with super Maus and others experiences tanks and vehicles... or super soldiers... let please the others games doing it... I love CMs for the reality details and I hope this will stay like this...
