      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

I'm up for a game. :)

Time intervals for posting turns: At least once every 48 hours (it will likely be quickler in many cases, but sometimes the extended deadline is good)

Skill Level: Beginner, I know the basics, but not a lot of advanced strategy.

Hi AshesFall. I'd be interested in a game if you are up for it. I can meet those turn restrictions unless I'm on an 2-3 day business trip (happens about once every quarter) or vacation.

I'd be happy to play either side & I'd say my skill level was beginner as well. Let me know what you think.

I cant edit my original post, so I'll make an addenum. One turn per 48 hours is meant as my own "fastest" limit, I cant do faster than that most of the time. So longer intervals is all good on my part, it's supposed to be fun and relaxing, not a time pressure thing after all :).

Hi AshesfFall!

Aren't you playing with Brianlala? Anyway your conditions suit me well as I'm pretty busy myself. I did enjoy your AArs a lot and would be glad to discover AOD with you. Maybe I could convince you to join the tournament by the Summer end. To be honest, I have to evaluate if I can play both you and my tournament opponents when we hit September so there is a risk I might drop my game with you. Would you take the risk anyway? On the other hand, playing AOD, wether we complete our game or not, is the best way for both of us to learn it and improve our gameplay for next times.

You can leave a message here or respond to cdesmarais2000@videotron.ca

Regards.

Hey claude. I couldnt PM you, so I'll write here instead. I've been MIA for a week or so, so I've sent Brian and some others a PM. I'd be happy to play, but I probably cant manage more than two games at once.

I'lll send you a message at that adress if I either dont get the games I currently have starting up off the ground, or once they're finished. :) Fair?

Also, I am very happy to hear you enjoyed my AARs, thank you!

Good enough for me, my friend! In fact, I was a bit surprise you came back with another request for a game after Brianlala offer. I'm even more surprised that no other one showed up here over the last 2 weeks! I guess nobody wants to go blind into the ring. They should'nt be scared since those who played Gold will be on familiar ground , no lost in the space effect.

By the way, don't know why my pm box coudn't get your message. Settings are ok for what I checked.

So have a thrilling challenge with your game partners and don't forget there is a tournament coming!

These conditions would fit perfectly to me. Anyone interested to command the Allies?

Okay - I just bought this game. I tried to find an opponent for Gold but did not find anyone. I have not even tried this one and so i am ready to start game in the weekend (that comes too early but you have to start as soon as possible).

So is there any possibility to join the ladder. I think i can play 4 games to the end during this year. I suppose all games are not lasting 6-7 years...

I am somewhat experienced player, i started playing SCET1 some ten years ago (or something luike that). I have played Scet II, Global War and Gold. I have started maybe some 10-15 games against human opponent (Global War and Gold together), and over half of those have been very good games lasting at least to year 42-43. I considet myself somewhat avarage player but totally unexperienced with this new one.

How do I join to the ladder? I want to play first game as an ally. There is two reasons for that: I was Axis in my last 3 or 4 games in Global Gold. And another reason is that it I find it easier to play as an ally in first game... maybe it is not so, but anyway first reason still is enough.
