      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. Happy New Year's Day! 2018 look ahead

    That's what happens when you join the army, get married, and adopt another dog. Still following CM religiously though. Hoping to get to play some CMSF2 in Afghanistan this year.
  2. Happy New Year's Day! 2018 look ahead

    Not even that. Just add the weather options so we could have winter battles. That's all i would want.
  3. CMFB update?

    I leave to go to Air Force BMT in a couple months hopefully by the time i retire ill be be able to play CMFB and the battlepack.
  4. How many delays is it going to be. Ive been refreshing the page constantly waiting for Final blitzkrieg and the battle back to come out. COME ON GUYS PLEASE.
  5. Russian army under equipped?

    Wrong. The Russians in game would greatly benefit getting the NVGs/Thermals as in game they only have night optics on their rifles which greatly reduces squad effectiveness at night. How would any of that be propaganda? All of that equipment is extremely reasonable and definitely not out of Russias manufacturing capability. But let me ask do you have any evidence that Russia has not equipped some troops with this equipment?
  6. ChrisND Stream Footage

    Thanks Chris for the beta footage, really getting me itching for some modern combat.
  7. How will classified systems be modeled?

    You know what they say right? Old men rise early.
  8. East Front literature!

    Don't worry i'm still here. Summer was a very busy time for me with more working hours (grocery store ive been working at the past year 1 1/2), got a girlfriend and have been spending time with her, also working out/training/running. Just about everything really. I have not had much time to post or keep up with forum matters but i do lurk and have several PBEMs running ATM. But things have slowed down much from what they were and will start posting more. Good seeing that you were worried Micheal, much like my old man, well... you are old so there's that.
  9. BFC Why do u make the commies look so good!? You make them look better then they relly r! Rally? No mass charges? Where r the commissars? You glorify them too much guisse... BfC is run by a bunch of soviets probably Putin himself! /End troll
  10. Any interest for vehicle mods?

    Keep up the great work Aris! Looking forward to more of your great work!
  11. T34-1942-late

    I really like it, looks like that tank had been through some tough times. Keep up the good work.
  12. CMRT Previous Mods That Work

    Most of the terrain mods seem to work.
  13. Squad Casualty List is terrible

    Have to agree, not very helpful at all. It now takes longer then it should to determine weather the squad is combat effective or not.
  14. Downloading ...

    Just started DL. 5 minutes left. Damn i love fiber optic.
  15. Just sayin'...
