      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-55 Mountain Factory Mission

Recommended Posts

As soon as the Battlefront.com administrators clear the file I just uploaded this one will be available for download from the Battlefront.com Repository. The file name is T-55 Mountain Factory.

In this mission you are part of a T-55A crew in support of an assault on a secluded industrial zone located in the mountains.

The cache file is: MountainFactory t55.ca

The script file is: MountFac t55.pd

This is an enhancement to the T-55 Breakthrough Mission - Mission 3 in the T-72 BOF campaign.

Here is the mission summary:

Your T-55A crew is to support the capture of a secluded industrial zone from enemy forces. The allied forces you are supporting consist of two teams each being a T-72B and an infantry squad. Your orders are to arrive at allied front lines north of your current position and move out with allied forces firing at will at enemy forces.

Intell reports that enemy forces have no less than four countermech' squads dug in around the industrial zone, and have what appears to be two maneuver elements. One is an infantry squad, and the other is a tank/infantry combat team consisting of 2 Leopard 1A4 tanks and a detachment of RPG gunners.

Commander's Intent is to eradicate the enemy forces in the area so that allied forces can collect the petroleum and metal resources located throughout the industrial zone structures.

Good use of terrain in this mission is critical. The enemy units are crack shots with their Sprut-B and B-11 anti-tank guns, and the Leopard 1A4 crews are veterans of many battles.

Recommendation, if you have not already done so, set your player's tank armor to 2.0 versus 1.0 to get a more realistic and enjoyable experience playing this mission. Enjoy!

Happy Holidays!

One thing I want to mention about the T-55 Mountain Factory mission. When the 2 T-72's and infantry squads move out, the script file has a command in it to have one of the T-72 commanders tell everyone in radio contact to "Spread out!". To have this voice command executed, please copy (hit Ctrl c keys) the sound file "Person_call03.wav" from the SOUNDS folder located in your Battlefront folder in the following location: Battlefront\T-72 Balkans on Fire\DATA\SOUNDS.

Once you have copied the Person_call03.wav file, paste it in your TASKS folder located in your Battlefront folder at the following location: Battlefront\T-72 Balkans on Fire\DATA\SOUNDS\TASKS.

Doing this allows the script file to actuate the voice command "Spread out!". It's up to you if you want to have this voice command in your mission. If you want it, follow the above steps, and it will be there. Thanks!
