      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

Check out this brutal scene from my last game:

 

 

A match of "who is gonna explode first". The BMP-3 or the Bradley? I thought at first that the BMP will win duel to its larger gun but the brave Bradley gunner kept firing even after his vehicle got marked as "Destroyed" and he managed to blow up the BMP. In the end both IFVs killed each other simultaniously. If you watch closely you can also see the Bradleys KE penetrators exiting the BMP after penetrating though-and-trough, impacting the ground behind it. Brutal.

Agusto, when I watched your vid, I got the announcer's deep voice from the original Unreal Tournament in my head saying, "Double-kill!"

 

Here are a couple of shots from Galloping Horse Downfall:

Here's something to give you a chuckle.  :)

In the editor in Flavor Objects is a listing for 'posters'. In the WWII titles they're mostly filled with propaganda posters. Not exactly appropriate for modern times. So a selection of fake Ukrainian billboards were made. Everything from UN observer force notices to government emergency decrees to Chinese and Italian food, karaoke and rock concert advertisements! The smattering of roman text among the Cyrillic means these are most suitable for the environs around Kiev. You can't say we didn't try to being you modern Ukraine!  :D

I had my first contact with a rookie Su25 pilot. My only AA Soldier got taken out by a very far flying shrapnel.

A generous burst of 30mm hitting the unsuspecting grunts, several directly.

10 men 6 died 3 wounded and out of the fight.

 

Really a shame since they pinned atleast 2 Russian squads down and could've easily decimated them with the AGS during the next 2-3 turns :(

That's funny, Pete. It just so happens that I'm doing a QB on that map right now. It has some very nice touches and is a great map!

 

-Just had a Bradley miss one of my T-90A's with its TOW and it landed...on my FO!

MikeyD I say I am positively impressed by the Italian stereotypizing

 

In downtown Kiev there's a rather large restaurant in the center of town with the name 'MAFIA' in roman script. I found that so amusing that I had to include some version of it in the posters. And 'costa nosta' just translates "what we do". Its not my fault that you read the name as organized crime.

Americans and Russians meet in a forrest, a grenade throwing duel ensues.

 

 

Note how the russian on the left side gets killed while throwing his grenade and drops it on his buddy to the left :D.
