      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

Any way to upload a picture without using a third party site? I would like to upload screenshots I have taken within the browser. Is this possible? Have some great screenshots I would like to share. 

 

Thanks!

Next to the 'Post' button do you see the 'More Reply Options' button? If you hit that you should see an 'attach files' option that'll pick up a piece of art from your desktop (or wherever).

So close 125mm shell just between sensors and detectors. 
 

That Ukraine tank commander should listen Daft Punk's 'get lucky' 

 

BTW, are there any mods for shells / gun-launching atgm model? To me, they look like Apollo's lightning arrow or something Greek god magics.

Part Seven:

 

I continue to re-deploy my troop in preparation of the Russian assault that is starting to form on both the left and right flank/bridges. I get confirmed contacts of APCs on our side of the river so the Russians now have a foothold and will attempt to exploit it.

On the plus side my 155mm artillery rounds begin to fall on the heads of the unlucky Russians crossing on the right flank. Hopefully it is enough to stall/stop their advance and buy me some time to readjust and redeploy. Also my sniper team with the M107 .50 cal sniper rifle starts to give the Russians another problem as he begins to get penetrating hits on several APCs!

Thanks :) But I couldn't find the tracer mod in the CMBS mod forum. Could you give me a link? Thanks

Part Eight:

 

So far so good!

The Russians are starting to concentrate forces on both flanks in order to make a push in the coming turns. I whittle down their APCs with Javelin and large caliber sniper fire. 

The clock is ticking and I'm am starting to wonder where our Ukrainian relief force is. Our casualty rate is pretty low so far, a few WIA and maybe 2-3 KIA. I just hope I have men left to relieve when they decide to show up!
