      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. Turkish Leo2 tanks struggle in the Syria

    The ready to use ammo is stored in the turret bustle whith blowoutpanels, in the Leo 2. And the rest of the ammo is in an amunition bunker, in the front left side of the hull. The amunition bunker is well protected from hot splinters from a penetration. But from a hit from the side, as this probably is. This 30 year old German tank was penetrated, in the side, and most probably the amunitionsbunker too. Now the At-5 Spandrel is not the most potent missile out there, and it is 30 years old too. And a hit to the front of the old Leo, most probably would not have penetrated. A hit to the side, in an 90 degree angle. I belive even the AT-5 Spandrel will penetrate every tank out there. So the Turkish tactic, in their way of using their tanks. Might be of some questioning? Not the first time a Turkish Leo 2A4 got a hit from the side, and brewed up.
  2. Engine 4 Patch?

    Nice knowing that you are here though . Amazing game, and I appreciate all the work that you have done. To make it even better, which you have succeeded with.
  3. Engine 4 Patch?

    You don´t happen to be "The" Txema. That done some fantastic modding in Steel Fury Kharkov 1942??
  4. The weapon systems seems to work fine. Its the aiming device that seems to need an overhaul And media is a strong weapon. In Sweden public media is very left/communist. And has been so for a long time. But most people know that. And the leftparty, as they are called. After changening the name, from "Left Party the Communists" has only 6-9% of the votes of today. But they control the media unfortunatly.
  5. Unfortunately against their own journalists
  6. There can be some traffic problems, in some places. At certain times. According to media.
  7. 21'000 soldiers from several Nations, is exercicing in Sweden. Starting today. Scenario: Red force, is attacking the Capital of Sweden, Stockholm. From The North, and South.

Blue force (defending) Sweden USA (MIM-104 Patriot) France (Aster 30-SAMP/T) Estonia Latvia Lithuania Norways Danmark -------------------------------------------------------- Red Force (Attacking) Sweden (Ranger units, SF) USA (Airborne) Finland --------------------------------------------------------- At the same time, Russia is holding the exercice Zapad 17. With 100.000-200,000 soldiers, according to different Western sources. In the western military district, and kaliningrad. So the chance for incidents, is higher than normal. The Baltic States, Poland and the Ukraine. Is raising their level of readyness during the Huge Russian exercice. Feel free to discuss. I will try to keep my as away this time

  9. Future US AFV development

    I will consider that. Maybe not just to stop irritate you. But last evening i almost didn't speak to my family at all. It takes to much time for meg to write. And even if you think it was everybody against me. I got strong support in pm by other members. So i never felt alone. Wish you the best to
  10. Future US AFV development

  11. Future US AFV development

    I dont think you have been that diplomatic. I think me and panzer, even if we didn't agree. Had a good discussion. Then from nowhere, you 5 guys attack mé from all directions att the same time. Thats when I started with sarcasm. Since Im sitting with google translate support all the time. It takes time to write answers for me. But lets just agree, that we don't agree
  12. Future US AFV development
