      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

Hypothetical Question (Need your opinions): Would anyone be interested in me modding russian side of the game?

To answer your question you should probably give us some example of your ideas.

But yes i am interested.

But before this can you finish Ukrainian BTR-70 with you camo too?

So, long as you get the female eyes and make-up version.  Can you do female face skins?? Otherwise the balaclava head covering (as in above pic) works well.

CMBS: BTR-4E Alternative Camouflage By Oleksandr

Note: This mod will not work with my Digital Camo BTR-4E mod.

This mod will provide you with alternative camouflage for Ukrainian BTR-4E.

All vehicles are a little dusty, scratched but not muddy (In my opinion it will fit summer steppes better).

Was wondering about this lovely new camo and having to choose between it and the Digital Camo version.  What was your thinking in doing 2 versions?   Which one is more appropriate/likely to be used with your other vehicle mods? 

Or are you planning to redo all vehicles with this alternative camo and us end-users will have a choice for the whole fleet?

Digital is a standard camouflage. All new vehicles are covered in it. This one (new one) is close to different variations of steppe and desert terrain camouflages.

So we should view Digital camouflage as a universal camouflage, and different camouflages as a specific paint job for specific areas.

For example for summer purpouses, for export, for desert, for steppes - this alternative will do the do.

Digital one will work in general anywhere in Eastern Europe.

But there are so many variants of BTR-4 platfrom, there are so many camouflages that I've decided to bring more of them. I havent done them all in one mod because I dont want it to break out the solidness. I want you guys to have something to play with and to have some options. Like having digital camouflaged BMP platoon with summer camouflaged BTR-4E unit and so on.

I will not redo all of them, I will do few variants for few vehicles - the main camouflage will be digital for all units.

Im having massive problems with modding BM Oplot tank at the moment - its turret sight complex is being messed every time I mod its turret so I dont know what to do with it at the moment. But yea the main skin will be digital for all Ukrainian vehicles and some of them might have different camos just for fancy pency view.
