      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

  6. CMRT Finland Mini Mod

    Hi, I am sorry to inform delay, because we are very busy in our jobs and in personal life. I have agreed with my mate, that we will do this, but our schedules must fit together, then we do it. Btw, thank you for the clarifying info, what to say/shout.
  7. Engine upgrade 4.0

    Ok. Maybe I am just plain stupid then. Tried "Steve, Battlefront , flames" etc, but found endless swamp with no content what I was searching for.
  8. Engine upgrade 4.0

    Devs , please inform something about fire, what , when , how? Is it wrong to ask ? We are playing war simulation , one of the best , but I see some crucial things missing , example the element of fire . Please answer .
  9. Engine upgrade 4.0

    Going to see Gibsons film tomorrow . Can't wait . Especially now , how you described it.
  10. Engine upgrade 4.0

    I believe flamethrowers etc are banned from modern warfare with contracts , as battle gasses. But as we heard from Syria , there has been used mustard gas , dunno if flamethrowers . I think that in some third world countries they maybe be in use and certain artillery explosives contains maybe some flammable indegridents . Just quessing here. . .
  11. Engine upgrade 4.0

    So you did not understand my post at all, and it was clear as water.
  12. CMRT Finland Mini Mod

    I am a Finn and could help this mod a little . I am speaking about voice acting . Me and my friend have done sound mods to different games . (mostly death screams etc) but I could make some variations to Finnish soldiers voices. Example "get down, kill them all , I'm wounded , and lot of Perkele, because it was used often in battlefield . Me and my friend especially are quite busy, but I can do this but cannot promise any time schedule . Also, we can correct artillery commands to Finnish language . Here is example of angry finnish swearing . Perkele, saatana, vittu, kyrpä etc. There is English subtitles . Quite hilarious video .

    Sorry for double post . When we now have flamethrower in couple forms, we need to get them work as in Warfield. With torching dry forest , it is clear that troops there hiding or defending get morale and fatigue loss , even they are not immediate closeness to the flames . Smoke inhalation , hotness, smoke itself. See the retreating troops from there and shoot them in the back. Also , when we have flames , we see how burning wehicles start chain reaction . I own all cmx2 games, except Italy and all cmx1 , so as customer I maybe have justice to "nag" about this. It is also frustrating , that devs do no speak a word about this, will they add it and when.
