      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

AoD Ladder: Rules and Scoreboard

Recommended Posts

Finally - I am thinking of ways to make this ladder more accessible. Luke had an idea to use Google Docs - and I have just come off a brief training meeting at work showing us the benefits and functionality of google docs. I think I agree with him that it would work well. Players could upload their own results, and we could have more commentary and chat and general fun. Independent challenges would also be much easier.

However to do it all players would have to have a google email address.

I would appreciate comments about this proposal. I had initially thought that I might wait until ladder 2 before making any changes like this, but actually we could migrate the whole ladder operation over to google fairly easily, even mid competition.

The biggest downside I can think of is that we might lose a bit of forum presence here on BF and I think we owe Hubert a bit of BF and Furysoftware loyalty. However.... SC3 is not going to be published through BF so maybe this is not so important?

Thoughts?????

If it does migrate, it would certainly be nice to hear some reports on the forum from time to time, as I do like to see how things are going. :)

About that updated ladder grid. My game against Isnogud is not there. Isno is Axis and I am

Allied. We already started year 1942. I am just stupid enough not to surrender....

I don't know that running a google doc precludes the forum. The key benefit is allowing us to do more of the work and updates and not putting it all on Alastair. But we could still post an image of the spreadsheet -- or some corresponding graphic like Alastair has been doing -- here

Put differently, Alastair has been running a spreadsheet privately and posting the results graphically here. I am only suggesting we maintain the spreadsheet collectively but still can post images from it here. Not sure offhand if as nice a graphic as Alastair is doing can be done in Google docs...

I can see it on there ok - take a closer look! Actually for some reason that grid always looks a bit fuzzy: I'm not a great graphics man but it does confuse me as to how photoshop creates a fuzzy jpg at maximum quality of a pretty clear excel spreadsheet!

Thanks for the feedback so far - agree that if the mechanics are placed on google we can still post on this forum... not least to advertise that a ladder is actually going on.

I'll send out a direct email about this in a few days to get a better feel for it all. Not sure whether a migration half way through is a good idea or not, but I agree that it would give players much more direct contact with what is going on, and that has to be a good thing.

Bill - if we do migrate I would like you and Hubert both to be part of it too - unless you dont want to be!

can someone remind me what rules are in place regarding loops. I have units on the usa east coast to Europe loops but at the end of the turn they didn't move.

I suspect they are turned off but its been that long since I set up the game I cant remember.

Hi all

It is my intention to do the final ladder update before the close of year 1 in the very near future. I have about half a dozen results sitting in my inbox, and a load of games that are still being played as far as I am aware.

I am very sorry that updates have been so few since the summer - much going on, and in the last week a combination of government inspection and job interview has left me about as busy as I have ever been - but with 8 weeks to go an update WILL appear.

There will also be a ladder next year, but the format will be different, and the length will be shorter. More to follow on that!

OK - 19 days to go in the ladder. I will be emailing players directly about the ladder situation, the scene going forward etc... but for now here is the current list of all matches. I am sure that somewhere along the line I have lost results for the handful of games still listed here as being ongoing - so if anyone can update me on these again then I'd be grateful and I can get the final scoreboard as accurate as possible.

So - current state of matches is:

Matches in play as of 11th December 2014

Lofty12 (axis) vs Tmanusa (allies)

Fritz (axis) vs PGTomli (allies)

Amadeus (axis) vs Pacestick (allies)

Amadeus (axis) vs Strategiclayabout (allies)

Clausewitz (axis) vs 4th Bn 66th Reg (allies)

Isnogud (axis) vs Kimbalys (allies)

Amona (axis) vs Ludi 1867 (allies)

Clausewitz (axis) vs Fritz (allies)

Kimbalys (axis) vs Dalibor (allies)

Dalibor (axis) vs Clausewitz (allies)

Results

Strategiclayabout (axis) scored a 2 point victory over Amadeus (allies) in June 1941.
