      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

Good PvP scenarios.

After some convincing I managed to convince a buddy of mine to purchase this game. Now that he has it, it goes without saying he likes it. We have played a few scenarios and I've made a few myself In the editor. But we've run out of missions to play, and as much as I hate to say it the quick battle in CMSF is cheeks. So if anyone knows of anygood human to human maps and could link some that would be awesome! Keep in mind he only has the bass game and marines. Any help would be awesome, thanks.

Also I'd prefer fairer fights if anyone has some, like meeting engage meets with similar forces!

A link to a load of CMSF stuff in the above thread.

Above check out Ian L's list of all Combat Mission scenarios - again should provide some answers to your questions.

Currently doing "Armour Attacks!" with a mate. He's a good hand at the game but I've a fair bit more experience so I'm playing it as the Syrians. Your crews are veterans and well motivated, which really only leaves the technological aspect to consider.

Highly reccomend the Scenario; it's actually been quite tit-for-tat, definitely shines as H2H.

There's a few others; "STEELERS" is also decent for H2H. There's also "Forging Steel" mission pack which is a series of connected scenarios that play incredibly well H2H.

For something a bit different, you might enjoy LLF's 'Baba-Amr Syria 2012 Red vs Red'.....Asymmetrical warfare at it's finest.  B)

Sadly no Shock Force scenarios are in the list. The scenario scanner that @Mad Mike created cannot handle CMSF. There are enough differences between versions to make that tricky. He says he will revisit the possibility of doing the work after BFC updates CMSF to the new game engine.

Presumably people can simply d/l the scenarios and campaigns I uploaded and see everything and pick what they want(??)

No, that's @nightops's share.

Still a good source of goodies though.
