      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

  1. Had a good laugh from this
  2. She is a long way away now, in Dubai
  3. Wow is right... when do we get a CMVT?
  4. If you enjoy the sassy type who partially disregards rank when she speaks then she will be perfect for you! You'd think of a menace since they take after their viking ancestors, but she is significantly more docile. However, she did tell me she would eat the flesh of her enemies if she had to. We were on our way to the beach and had a blast in the freezing water . Glad you boys enjoyed the thread. You are certainly welcome!
  5. I was hoping to get a better picture of just us together before she left, as a farewell gift for myself . Gives me a reason to hold her hip . Oh well, demand is rising. She is the one on my right in the green. Live long and prosper.
  6. Have I missed anyone?
  7. She doesn't want the responsibility of being a NCO. The pay isn't worth it. She said it was something like 6-7k more a year. Of course they have females in the army she says. They're "just awesome". Apparently Norway has always had females in the military, or so she says. Cannot confirm :-)
  8. She was brought in due to the same childhood fantasies of being a police officer or a fire(wo)man. Always wanted to do something significant. She has been at her job for three years now. I say job because she makes a decent salary or around 50k USD. Her basic training was eight weeks, which to me seems extremely short. She's a little shy. She says the reason why she joined as a driver was because it seemed fun as opposed to the other jobs. She doesn't plan on staying for life, as she wishes to further her education in Australia. As for the rest of your questions John, they will be answered soon, as she is tired and a little overwhelmed with the fantastic amount interest! Certainly everything will be answered after our camping fiasco.
  9. She says the tracks don't throw often. Never had it happen to her but she's heard of it happening within her ranks. She can't recall the degree amount. Told me to look it up. Engine maintenance happens twice a year as scheduled. Her vehicle itself has been extremely reliable and hasn't required a repair. Other CV's seem to fair worse. As typical of a lady so pristine, she lets the repair crews do all the dirty work and "helps out" whatever small things she can They seem to have very good vehicles. When the Norway-USA training was occuring, the Marines' vehicles would often have issues, be sluggish in the winter conditions, and are tremendously louder. She told me the Abrams is silent. When you see it that's when you'll hear it.
  10. She is beautiful and fit. Handled an hour run in the sunny and humid weather today. It won't stop raining! Also we had worked out together before we left. Previously in the year she was squatting 200lbs. At my place, with my extremely ghetto setup, we managed ~170 before having to drop down in weight. When we get back we will see how strong her arms are. Hahaha. No creepshots sorry guys! Maybe I'll snag one of us together and post it... but no rushing it!
  11. Firstly, let me apologize for the delay. We have been on a camping trip and the wifi sucks to say the least. She says yes to the first two, the vehicle is quick and handles well. It was designed around the rough weather. She doesn't want to move up right now. However she is qualified to gun since every crewman is trained for the same system. The commander is off limits for now, as she must be a NCO. Currently she is a private (They share American ranks).
  12. Even she thinks it's disgusting fishy nonsense. On her base she is allowed to buy whatever food she pleases.
  13. She is unsure. But likely
  14. Swedish do still use the 40mm found in the first video. I'd imagine the 40mm has better penetration.
