      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. Hi bud when i click activate new products it takes me to terminal then just runs something, it doesn't ask for licence or nothing, were do i put the licence. Ive activated it before when v4 first came out something doesnt feel right i downloaded RT V3 and this worked fine so its not a security issue its this stupid v4 activation, why didnt they put this info at the launch game screen could be so easy instead i cant play any games and getting very frustrated? If you could is it possible to show a screen grab of what the Terminal box says when loaded correctly. Also i bought the v4 big bundle so how do i licence all versions of CMBN ie Battlepacks and Market grden and CW when all ive got is one activate new products???? Cheers
  2. Thanks bud didn;t work, will write out the ticket. Cheers
  3. Hi guys About 2 months ago all my combat missions stopped working, I had long before updated to V4, when i launch all that happens is the icon bounces for a few minutes then just goes, I redownloaded all the files but the register file that comes with the bundle takes me to macs terminal and im sure thats wrong????? and used to take me to a website? Please any suguestions, i need a fix. lol BTW i haven't upoaded new OS or anything. Im on El Capitain 10.11.6. It seems like a registering issue or a security issue?

  6. Dragonwynn PM me your email and ill send them over via yousendit or something?
  7. Erwin I made all the maps from 1944 aerial photographs plus copied as best I could some of the original buildings such as the train station and the Gorki theater and made all the buildings from scratch plus modded vehicles, faces, weapons and loads of other bits and pieces. Umlaut did help with a few awesome vehicles and a great promotional video plus play testing and general feedback. So ya I think I can safely say it is mine and Umlaut has stated this on numerous occasions. Cheers
  8. Most are available in my Stalingrad mod but i have added a few for this one aswell. Cheers
  9. Cheers guys, Heinrich this will only be a one off scenario, with some extra buildings for Berlin like buildings. Cheers
  10. Yeh it is, some of the buildings textures are borrowed from that game. lol
  11. Some screens from a Battle of Berlin battle, set in Potzdammer Platz with the New Reichs Chancellory included which wasn't far from the Platz.. Here's some screens. Many thanks for viewing.
  12. Sherman tank descent

    Shame we cant have troops on tanks like in CMRT, many times the Brits and Cans went in battle like this, on June 7th Can Infantry rode on the Shermans of the Sherbrooke Fusilers on their doomed mission to capture Carpiquet airfield, also Canadians at Les Mesnil Paltry also rode into battle, (another disaster btw) plus Operation Goodwaood just for a start. Would really ad to CMBN.
  13. D-Day in Colour

    Na I mean the image you posted at the very top, its from Italy but the video is called D-Day in colour.
  14. D-Day in Colour

    The top image is shot in italy from a set shown in LIFE mag. It makes me laugh why they do this. But a really good watch none the less and narrated by the late John Hurt. Cheers
