      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

  1. Oleksandr's Modding Space CMA

    NOTE: This mod was updated due to a highlight made by one of my subscribers. Previously I’ve used base blue-green texture but that one was a base color for mountain camouflage pattern. Due to the balance of my CMA mods I’ve decided to avoid that blue-green thing, and cover these BMD’s with same camouflage I used in my BMP-1 and BMP-1D mods. CMA: Soviet BMD-1 By Oleksandr BMD was created to increase mobility, protection and firepower of Airborne units. It’s armed with 73 mm smooth-bore semi-automatic cannon, 3x 7,62 mgs + 3x ATGMs. I was taken into service in 1969. This vehicle became a start of a new era in Soviet approach to its Airborne forces (eventhough, there were other VDV vehicles even before BMD family showed up). Even today pretty much all modern airborne forces tactics of Eastern European countries are affected by appearing of this vehicle. And appearing of those tactics and vehicles became possible due to one man – Vasily Filippovich Margelov. The man who had a vision, the man who’ve done a lot, the man we will always remember. This mod was created in memory of THE “real father” of VDV. Enjoy!

    Yup but ask same question in CMA topic (this one relates to CMBS only) or in PM. Thank you.

    CMBS: “EFVC” M1200 This mod will provide you with “EFVC” (Eastern Front Vehicle Camouflage) version of M1200. I came out with this camouflage pattern while playing the game and thinking about how would vehicles assigned to missions in Ukraine/Russia/Belarus would need to look like to fit those areas. As I mentioned in my previous “EFVC” vehicles mods this camouflage consists of several camouflages mixed together. Enjoy! Link to download: http://cmmodsiii.greenasjade.net/?p=5989
  7. Helmet goggles

  8. Helmet goggles

  10. Helmet goggles

    No but what i mean is to find a wae to put those russian style helmets on americans and ukrainians. I wonder if someone knows da wae?) lol
  11. A plea for a French Army DLC

    I would like to see Canada before UK, because Canada is acutally there now. So it would make more sense. French army and UK would be great as well. But most desired are (from my point of view): Poland, Canada, France.
  12. Tactical Lifehack

    This is kind off awesome. It would be cool if they would add a feature when Igla soldier would be able to shoot with his AA system while vehicle is moving (in real life people do shoot with Iglas on the move but mostly from BTRs).
