      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

    Hello, everyone! I just bought the game and I'm having problems with crashing after 30 minutes of play. After the first crash the game becomes totally unstable and the crashes starts happening on startup, at the menu or after 5-10 minutes of play. If I restart the computer the cycle beings again. I installed the last driver for my AMD Radeon R7 265, the 17.40.1031-171102a-320048C-CrimsonReLive. Patched to the 1.32 version. Run as administrator. Nothing worked. This kind of crash smells like hardware acceleration for me... Anyway, I've been having so much trouble to play CMSF since the website, let me tell you a history in topics: - I made a international card just to buy the game (I'm from Brazil). - My IP is blocked in your website for no reason and I had no return from support. I used the free trial of a software called TRUST.ZONE to disguise my IP to access your website, buy the game and download it, now this is what I call love for your game! My IP was probably blocked because I forgot my password recently and did a lot of attempts to connect. - Now after all of that the game is broken... The game is great, the 30 minutes of play I have are the most tactical of any RTS/RTT I've played so far, help me, I want to buy the modules and other games but they don't work! The TRUST.ZONE trial already expired and I can't even buy other games from you... Could the crash be related to IP block? Thanks in advance guys. Att., Andre Calais Salles.
  2. After upgrading to 4.0, I am now having problems with the game crashing while trying to load the map. It usually stops at 43% and goes no further. How do I fix this? P.S. - I have Win 7.
  3. Getting an annoying situation where both the games are crashing at specific times during certain scenarios. CMBS crashes when playing Rollin' on the River and CMRT crashes during user scenario CMRT Firebrigade von Saucken at 01:05 game time. saving the game doesn't help and neither does restarting the scenario from scratch. The game just stops responding and the Windows cursor goes into busy mode forcing a CTRL+ALT+DEL to get back to Windows and then selecting CLOSE PROGRAM on the THIS PROGRAM HAS STOPPED RESPONDING dialog box. I hadn't played either scenario before the v4.0 update so can't say if the issue is specific to the update or not.
  4. Had CM suddenly crash just now. I wasn't doing anything - just looking at the map (no graphics motion or mouse movement). Here's some info in case someone is going to look into it. I can provide more crash log details or the saved game (I had just saved 10 seconds before - whew!)

  6. My WWII Global Conflict game crashes when intermittently and when I attempt to save. Also, the saved games are corrupted or erased. Any help greatly appreciated. Paul
  7. So, as the thread name says My black sea crashes every time I choose Scenario editor or Quick battle from the main menu. I can open battles and campaigns and even start the games on them no problem, but it just crashes on me on these ones. I'll try to find my crashlogs (where are they?) and post them here as they may be of help.
