      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

Multiplayer Thread - Opponent Finder

Recommended Posts

I have emailed to Alastair but have not heard anything. But anyway I am searching for an opponent. Probably it is possible to be added to the ladder afterwards?

So hopefully someone wants to play Axis against me. I can take axis against that same player little bit later...

Great - i got my game. Isn't it good way to start playing allied against ladder leader... Well at least good way to learn. I could start another game. I prefer Axis as I have one ally game now but allied is okay for me too.

And I prefer game against little bit more unexperienced player this time. So if you are unbeatable or almost unbeatable - please... i want little more even game than against Isnogud.

I cannot promise very fast playing. Turn per day approx. but there are going to be breaks too. But I tell when i can't play that much and when i have more time.

Sen my private message. And hey, how do other players get opponents - this thread is pretty silent so...

Well write Alastair and see if he can find you a opponent lower on the ladder. Isnogud plays very unorthodox and very very well. You will be demoralized.. but learn a lot :-) Better if you start with someone easier though :-)

After a long pause I am getting back to this great game with the new expansion assault on democracy.

I still really like this game but against a human opponant...

So If you want to play the global campaign (axis or allies or both at the same time), hard build limit and no replay, I am your man.

I usually play untill the end, 1 or 2 turns every 2 days. One last thing I am a false beginner.

New in town. Completely new to PBEM. Love AoD. I can play either side, but would prefer Allies my first time out. I work a lot so I can play one turn per day, max. Live on East Coast of US and will post my turns in the early morning EST. I'm a masochist, but within limits, so I may not always be willing to fight a losing war to the bitter end. Any takers?

With too much free time, I am searching for opponents again.

AOD 1.03.1, prefer to play Allies.

I am quite experienced, but of only moderate skill.

If interested, send your first turn to:

kliomene@gmx.de

Options: hard builds ON

everything else up to you.

Thanks Amadeus, Colonel Pasta, and Amona for doing battle. Still looking for one more PBEM opponent. I would prefer to play as the Axis, with standard game options, but I am flexible. I can post about one move per day. Any takers?

:)I am in four good games of AoD at the moment (and just lost resoundingly to Isnogud!), but I am looking for another. Happy to play Axis or Allies. Prefer to play with standard options (including transoceanic loops). Anyone interested?

Je parle francais aussi.

Anyone up for a PBEM match of AoD? I have primarily been playing the AI and one freind of mine who is no longer available. I'm probably ranked low-intermediate. Can play either side or mirror match (my prefernce)--also prfer tournament rules (those trans-oceanic loops make for some weird, ahistorical play IMHO). Anyway, e-mail me at Baker3111@verizon.net.

Since most of my games are now finished I look for new opponents. Happy to play any side or mirror.

I'm quite experienced so beginners may not have much fun, but any challangers are welcome.

Please mail to ultima@gno.de

Looking for new matches again. Any challengers are welcome.

hello to all....  we have just finished a 2-year tournament.   Fritz (John Helm) is the final winner in tight battle with Pacestick (Peter Zima).   Congrats to both.

we had 12 players.   we have designed a new mod to 'balance' play  (called Allies Stronger) ... and have begun play, with hopes to start a new HANDICAP tournament

around October (+/-).   With the handicap system, even lesser experienced players will be competitive.   Hope to have a couple of new players to beat up on this fall!!

The mod is NOT avail on Battlefront...but if you would be interested in seeing the rules and/or getting the mod, please contact gkizziah@aol.com.

Regards to all AoD players!

Gary
