      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:

      -showui

      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. Ukrainian BMPs surpressing the remaining russians on the other side of the bridge. Crossing rivers can be expensive.
  2. We play this way, c3k. And that' s why we are not real army commanders ;).
  3. Letter home in RL: "Dear Mrs, your son died heroically in combat. He singlehandedly took out an enemy pillbox while throwing himself onto an enemy handgrenade, saving the lives of many of his comrades in the process. He is awarded...bla bla bla" In CM: "Dear Mrs, your son died heroically, together with the rest of his platoon, when his commander forgot that he had ordered an artillery strike on the building your sons platoon was ordered to occupy." "Dear Mrs, your son died heroically when his commander, a highly qualified soldier with 30 minutes of virtual military training, ordered him to charge through the killzone of the machine gun that had already killed the rest of your sons platoon." "Dear Mrs, your son died heroically, together with the rest of his platoon, when his commander forgot that the enemy IFVs thermal sights can spot him through the smoke." "Dear Mrs, your son died heroically when his commander wanted to see if he can run faster than that enemy tank can turn his turret. Obviously, your son failed at his task, but nonetheless his death was judged as very entertaining by those who witnessed it." "Dear Mrs, your son bled to death heroically, together with the rest of the wounded soldiers of his platoon, because his commander thinks that buddy aid is a waste of time and too much micromanagement."
  4. Beautiful screenshots HerrTom. I just gotta install that game again. Also where can i get that NVG effect ?
  5. Black Sea v1.04 released!

    Cool, i ve been waiting for the BMP-2 LOD Bug to get fixed for quite some time. Thank you for the good job! Will install the Patch as soon as i have time to play.
  6. Mullah Fayyad Highway - Iraq 2006

    @Combatintman Cant wait to play your latest scenario! I have always loved your work. I particularily enjoyed the Operation Galcier series.
  7. Download Issues

    Hello! Thanks for all your support. Eventually it turned out to be an issue related to my computer. On my second PC, the download worked fine an i was able to quickly DL my game. Interestingly it hadnt to do anything the the browser or anti virus i used because both my PCs are configured the same way in that regard. Best Regards agusto
  8. Download Issues

    It looks like BFC outsourced their filehosting: "If you continue having issues with the download [after makeing sure the most obvious causes for a failure are excluded], please email support@sharefile.com directly, or go to their support site at http://www.sharefile.com/support/?src=direct&v=e&cat=1" I dont want to have to deal with a thrid party company. Am i really the only one having these kinda issues?
  9. Download Issues

    Yes, it is just the way you described it. I have not yet been able to download my game despite numerous attempts.
  10. Hey guys! I purchased the game as DL only but bwhen i download the .zip file, the dowload stops after a few Megabytes and i have to restart it. Happensx with FF and IE and Orbit DL-Manager. I havent tried chrome yet. Am i the only one who currently experiences this issue? What can i do about it? I have abou 70 Mbit/s down an i can watch full HD video streams without a problem and i can use VOIP without any issues as well, so it is noz my internet connection that is failing. It must have something to do with the download from BFC beacuse i am having this problöem exclusively with their downloads.
  11. Wow 24 kills and 3 dead IFVs...not bad for a recoilless rifle team. Mine usually tend to not survive that long after making contact with the enemy. For far were they away from kill zone? @Rinaldi: yeah, those are awesome screenshot. Very nice ;). I havent had any time to play lately but these pictures make me wanna turn on my PC and fire up a scenario so badly lol.
  12. 1) I remember that we had 1 or 2 discussions about GTOS, yeah. Try the forum search, you might find them. 2) Legal...yes, i think so. IIRC you just arent allowed to post advertisement links to non-Battlefront products. But you should be aware though that this is a place where the fans of the Combat Mission series reside, so expect opinions to be biased. Discussions about whether GTOS or CM are better is a bit like discussing soccer with the fans of 2 opposing clubs, you know, there is a lot of bias, emotions and stuff. But yeah, it' s legal as long as the discussion stays civilised.
  13. Favorite WW2 Film Scenes

    Feuer is pronounced like 'foyar' in english. It sounds pretty close to fire actually.
  14. Out of interest I have been following the development of the civil wars in Syria and Iraq closely for the last couple of years. Naturally i also took a look at ISIS propaganda because i wanted to know how the group sees itself. I did that once and never again - they are probably the most disgusting and sadistic political group that currently exists on planet earth. Now recently i read news of a new propaganda video showing the most barabaric acts of ISIS i have heard about yet. Read for yourself (dont worry, there are neither gore nor videos in the articles): http://www.timesofisrael.com/is-drowns-decapitates-spies-in-brutal-new-video/ http://gulfnews.com/news/mena/iraq/latest-video-shows-daesh-style-execution-by-drowning-1.1539684 It' s almost beyond my understanding how ISIS or Daesh, as they are called in arabic, can get so much pleasure from killing civillians and POWs in the most brutal ways conceiveable. Reading news like this makes me feel thankful for the american aircraft currently bombing ISIS targets in Syria and Iraq and for all others who are currentlly resisting ISIS.
