      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

Just Uploaded a New Mission for T-72 BOF to the Repository

Recommended Posts

This mission will be available for download from the Battlefront.com Repository as soon as the administrators approve and post it.

This is a new mission for the T-72 tank set in the level 10 Column mission environment. Your task in this mission involves destroying an enemy check point, and supporting allied armored and infantry forces in repelling an enemy counter attack.

The cache file is: CheckPoint t72.ca

The script file is: checkpnt.pd

Intell reports that enemy forces have managed to infiltrate two tanks and an infantry squad into allied territory and have dug in and set up a roadway check point near an important road junction.

The mission for your T-72 tank and crew is to sneak up on the enemy forces dug in at this check point and destroy them, or drive them out before they have an opportunity to destroy any of our supply convoys or reinforcements heading to the front. Once finished with the enemy forces at the check point, provide overwatch for helicopter borne troops as they are airlifted to the check point where they will take up defensive positions in the trenches left by the enemy forces. Then support an allied armored and infantry force in repelling an expected enemy armored counter attack.

The enemy forces consist two elements. A small Operational Maneuver Group consisting of 2 Leopard 1A4 tanks and an infantry squad, and an armored cavalry force hidden nearby consisting of 2 Leopard 1A4 tanks and 2 Shturm-S cavalry fighting vehicles.

Allied forces consist of multiple elements. A maneuver element consisting of 3 T-72 tanks, a maneuver element consisting of an RPG tank hunter infantry squad, a helicopter air assault infantry squad, and an Mi-8 helicopter. All elements are under orders to not move out until after the enemy forces at the check point are destroyed.

The weather conditions for this mission are poor with rain and fog throughout the area. This means that your crew will need to rely heavily on your thermal sights to see enemy forces before they see you. Good luck and enjoy!

You're welcome Dragonfire! I had a breakthrough when producing this one. This is the first mission where I successfully got an infantry squad to board a helicopter, and then have the chopper drop off the squad and have the two units complete their individual tasks after the drop. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this one.
