Special Upgrade 4 Tech Tips 12/27/2016Hi 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 10/12/2017We'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

Gentlemen it is "Arms & Security" time of the year, Ukrainian military technologies are represented in both Kiev (Ukraine) and Washington D.C. right now at this moment. One of the greatest news today is that cooperation between the United States and Ukraine is increasing. That is real good news for me and pretty much everyone who stands against tyranny and imperialism of the reds. Now we all know that for the past decade russians were working on their "terminator" vehicle which was clamed as "one of a kind." But we all live in a modern world and modern world is changing every day. Few days ago Ukraine showed its version of a tank supporting vehicle. As you can see first version of this monster is standing on T-64 base. Firepower delivered by "Duplet" complex which includes: 2x 30 mm automatic cannons (3TM-1), 2x 7,62-mm MG's (KT), 30-mm automatic GL, and 4x AT "Barrier" launchers. This is the very first version of it, obviously final version will share modern dynamic defence, it will be modified in all possible ways and after all the testing will be done this thing will be avaliable on a market for our Western partners as well as to Ukrainian Military itself. No countries from opposing blocks will be able to have their hands on it and that is super awesome. I'm guessing that countries such as Poland are also actively working on things like this, and we as Ukrainians will make sure to deliver this point to the United States as well. Right now we all live in times when our armies should be upgraded, experiences shared and new approaches implemented. So as a proud Ukranian I'm saying to you guys, "Glory To Ukraine" and wish you all to keep your lands free of occupants and united. P.S. to all those who will "hate" - guys Ukraine is getting stronger every day - deal with it (oh im sorry you cant actually deal with it you can only face it lol).
