      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

Uploaded New T-72 Mission - Ammo Storage Facility

Recommended Posts

I just uploaded a new mission for the T-72B placed in the single mission meeting engagement environment. This will be available for download as soon as the Battlefront administrators approve my uploaded file. In this mission, your tank and crew are tasked with supporting a hastily organized defense of a large ammunition storage facility at the center of the map/environment.

Here is the Mission Summary

Your T-72B tank and crew are tasked with supporting an ad-hoc defense of a critical ammunition storage facility. The force you are supporting consists of a tank/infantry combat team made up of a T-72B, 2 T-55A's, and an RPG tank hunter infantry squad. The T-72,T-55's, and infantry are under orders to maneuver to defendable positions and repel any attacking forces.

Command has been required to withdraw most of the armor and artillery resources in the area to aid in a major offensive and unfortunately has left the ammo storage facility undefended until your armored contingent arrived. Given that the ammo storage facility is well behind allied lines, extensive fencing and barriers have not been required. This is presenting a problem now, as intell has reported that the enemy appears to be planning a smash and grab objective raid on our ammo storage facility. Your job is to prevent enemy forces from being successful in carrying this raid out.

The enemy forces in this mission are broken into three parts. Group one is 2 T-55A tanks, group 2 is two T-72B tanks and an infantry fireteam, and group 3 is 3 Shturm-S's, an SU-100, and an infantry fireteam. These groups will approach from different directions and will pop out of hidden areas in the terrain at relatively close range. Most of your engagements will take place between 200 and 500 meters in this mission.

For your enemy to complete their mission, they need to destroy all allied forces in the area to allow for them to grab as much ammo as possible and make off with it. Your mission objective is simple. Destroy every enemy vehicle, and kill every enemy soldier. Don't let them succeed. Command currently does not have additional forces in the area to reinforce or replace your tank/infantry combat team.

I had a great time putting this mission together and testing it out. The close range engagements are a real rush, and I think that fans of T-72 BOF will really enjoy this one.
