      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

  1. I'ts worse if you play the Italians.
  2. The folks at Rock, Paper, Shotgun have been running a communal combat mission game where the commenters moved the units. Sadly it has just ended! Here is the intro: https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2017/07/14/the-flare-path-welcomes-combative-commenters-3/ Here all the turns in reverse order: https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/tag/communal-combat-mission/
  3. The Sahariana is so beautiful!
  4. There is always a Captain Willard.
  5. Have you noticed the photographer is not behind the tank? Most photos are posed. In the first one there is even a guy standing right in the open.
  6. I don't know how often the cover behind tanks was done IRL. Tanks tend to attract a lot of attention and you don't want to be around when it blows up.
  7. Yes, give me some time. Some of these objects replace stock objects and I need to create a file so people will know what is new.
  8. I'm not very knowledgeable in guns and ammo, so In CM:A I created a mod where weapons that have ammo in the depots, also have the specific caliber in their weapon image so I don't make mistakes.
  9. So that Italian units pack is far away or even completely scratched?
  10. I have mentioned this before, but I would like the option to add any kind of ammo you want to a supply depot in the editor.
  11. I totally missed the second part of your post! I find that European war movies are better than American movies. The German Stalingrad, the Russian Brest Fortress, the Finnish Talvisota, and some others are really good.
  12. Which Tuntematon sotilas would you recommend? from 1955 or 1985? Welcome to the forums Lucas. I used to be part of the SPWAW forums and we had a big community of Finns. Looks like you guys really love Strategy games. I'm also a big player of Unreal World, I think it has the World Record on longer development, or something similar. It's made by two Finns.
  13. This kind of things should be explained by someone from battlefont and not left for the players to discover.
  14. Talking about acquire routine, it would be great if we could edit vehicle load outs in the editor. So scenario designers could give or take firepower as needed.
