      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

  3. Any news about CMFI 4.0 release

    At the end of the month some news, channel Chris can be active ?
  4. Q Hotkey

    for key X, Q (which supports the camera in three modes) assign other keys in each mode, then these buttons are "free". In this way I have set key F = fast, R=reverse
  5. 1. Old save is compatible 2. No, there are newer files muzzle fire, muzzle flash, tracers and old mods probably not work
  6. New on Combat Mission

    From my side: Get ready for a 30 FPS max 40 (to play in CM is enough) recommended graphics Geforce The best game of the living by the player PBEM, as the AI is doing you see in the demo, everything depends how it is designed scenario. Mods is only graphic. Generally, you should play mode WEGO for me is the best game. Why this long to write
  7. Need some help.

    I think is not a short tutorial, you need a lot of play to really understand how the game works. You should have a plan and try to implement it, do not play from case to case. One is certain that you must be patient and not to rush. I know that these councils are very general but CM is not a template on how to play.
  8. RT Unofficial Screenshot Thread

    Hi a short video what's going on in my games https://youtu.be/8bKIaBe_uBM

  10. v1.01 Patch is here!

    I just checked and everything works ok, on the new version of the file has loaded next PBEM without any problem.
  11. v1.01 Patch is here!

    Actual PBEM game will work on patch 1.01 ?
  12. I'm not in any dead set and not looking for any problems, I do not know how this conclusion. Just I write what I think. Gratifying that the next patch came out and that the game is not forgotten. But I am convinced that after the CMBF this family has nothing will.
  13. Just what is the future because of the realization CMBN 3.0 passed 1,5 years, and this family seems to be closed. When choosing scenario is information which modules are required only when setting QB is not. Viewing instructions when shopping looks strange, all these data are in the computer just is not possible selection of what's what. For the future, the one who has less modules set up the game and should be without problems.
  14. This I do not understand yet both have installed the same game but he does not have everything activated. Physically it these units, the texture etc has on his computer. While the game can see something on the battlefield what he can not issue. So for me, it should work. BFC gives such information 5- this system will enable us to, in the future, allow h2h play between players who do not own the same content. In other words, you'll be able to play against someone with Commonwealth Forces, even if you haven't purchased that module. You won't, of course, be able to use content in solo play if you haven't purchased it yourself. Note that this is planned for future releases, not a new feature available now!
