      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. Oleksandr's Modding Space CMA

    CMA: Soviet BMP-1 By Oleksandr Recamouflaged BMP-1 with a tactical sign of the 66th Separate Motorized Rifle Brigade. Most of the time this brigade was operating close to Pakistanian borders. Brigade was involved in many different operations in period from 1979 to 1989. At certain periods in time this brigade was marked as “strenghthened” because sometimes it had rocket artillery battery, 152 mm self-propelled gun battery and separate helicopter regiment in its disposal.

    CMA: Soviet Early Summer Uniform By Oleksandr This mod will provide you with khaki colored early soviet summer uniforms. Certain details were added to early years summer uniforms. Pretty much everything was retextured. Due to minimalism in provided game textures – modding this game is complicated. But the longest work starts from the smallest step. So here we go.

    Fun Fact: while Amin and his guards were so shocked by the Soviet attack - they were trying to contact (via radio) Soviet base (which was located not that far) during first moments of that bloodbath for help. Soviets were telling something like, "help is on the way" lol and Shilkas fire was getting only stronger lol.

    CMA: Guards BTR-60 By Oleksandr This mod will add reworked BTR-60 to this game. These vehicles were used by Soviets in throughout the war. They were also used by DRA forces as their main apc. Interesting fact – these BTRs were used in one of the first operation of KGB + GRU special forces in Afghanistan – Palace of Amin Assault . It was then when Soviets understood that jumping off this thing wasnt very safe. In that operation few KGB special forces operators died specifically because of the design of these things. Yet, operation itself was a major success for Soviets. According to Soviet side sources soviets lost only 20 men (5 KGB operators, 9 paratroopers, 6 members of “Muslim” battalion) while killing nearly 800 men (400 men according to western sources) from Amins security forces, including himself and 2 of his sons. Obviusly such kill/death ratio became possible because certain factors were involved – massive usage of supressive fire provided by Shilkas, and additional support from BMP’s. Anyhow this vehicle is still in use today in many countries, and I hope that you will enjoy this fresh look during your personal Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. Enjoy!

  8. CMA: 101st Motorized Rifle Regiment BTR-70 By Oleksandr This mod adds recamouflaged BTR-70 + a tactical sign of “101st Motorized Rifle Regiment.” 101st Motorized Rifle Regiment was deployed in Afghanistan in late December of 1979 and remained there up untill January 1989. It was an active element of “5th Guards Zimnovnikovskaya Order of Kutuzov Motorized Rifle Division Named After the 60th Anniversary of the USSR” division (and yes this is the name of the unit, yes that long). 101st Motorized Rifle Regiment took an active role in several major USSR operations in Afghanistan.

    nope it was a scratch in 2016 in 2017 they built a prototype and its on its long road on different kinds of tests. Actually I will make a post about it when they will reveal more materials. For Ukraine its a matter of money at this point. So yea we not expecting them earlier than 2020. But it sort of follows the trend. Manned turrets... Hm well it is what it is then. Thank you for your input by the way i didnt knew about FCS prior to this post.
  11. M60 MBT Modifications Opinions

    How about making a turret without humans at all when the crew is not risking their lives and sitting in a well protected capsule and all the functions with loading, reloading and stuff like that are going on automatically. Something like what we do with smaller vehicles now - when the turrret itself has no people inside? Link in Ukraine we got that prototype called T - Rex In russia they got that armata thing. And there is another thing that Israel system (dont remember its name) when you wearing a helmet when you can see through armor - kinda same tech what being used in F-35 program when the pilot could look through his plane. The reason why im asking is that AT systems went so far that hit in a turret would lead to all crew members dead or nearly dead. So you think the Future of Abrams tanks will be in still habbitable turret?

    Thank you man. Is there an option to make an automatic reload for M1 tanks?
