      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

Pizza, Gamers & Health

Recommended Posts

For gamers here in the States, at least, pizza is a favorite gaming adjunct. It's generally consumed during or after the game, particularly when in a social situation--where great quantities disappear in short order. The valuable information at this link may cause many to take a hard look maybe not at pizza per se, but whence it comes. I was hankering for pizza today, and in my search for the best chain pizza, found this, which cost Dominos a sale. I believe this link to be within Forum Rules, for it's information and offers no competing games.

Nor is the below author's name hype.

If You’ve Ever Eaten Pizza Before, This Will Blow Your Mind (Maybe Literally)

Am not clear whether you're referring to her post, the superfluity of responses she got, or both. I saw a news segment a few years ago that addressed some of the issues she did ref major chain pizza ingredients. That station had pizza ingredient pre-made packaging pics secretly shot by a former worker at one such place, Papa John's. It gave the lie to several claims. The investigative reporter found similar problems at other chains' stores, too. She presents a lot of information in one place which help people make informed decisions about their pizza. Where I live, there is an Italian place, owned by a Middle Eastern guy, which makes everything from scratch. That pizza is phenomenal. Food chemistry is no substitute for real, nutritious food, and I find it perverse for the chains to claim something is natural when it apparently escaped the lab! Here's an earlier piece on Papa John's policy of refusing to talk about its pizza ingredients. And the piece is from a well established news source, not a food activist who became one because doing things the old way got her hospitalized!

Her story and her numerous successes in organizing healthy change in foods major firms sell to the public.

PS

Forgot to say that I've had a girlfriend who was allergic to MSG, and hiding it from the public's awareness thus poses a serious health threat.
