      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

What a coincidence, in his other file, Elvis is getting the 'Spanking'O'death' at my hand.

*giggle* Didn't Elvis once make a claim about being undefeatable?

Dear Mr. Shaw,

The only thing that got me excited about your post was the mention of Emma. I would number files to play Emma.

Love and kisses,

Elvis

P.S. LEON and Stupor...it is true that at one point I was close to unbeatable but the rest of the pack is starting to come up to speed. You are both beating me at this moment but it isn't over until Mace sings.

Soldiers,

PENG claims that I will be humilaited (again, and not just for my spelling) soon. He claims that the release of certain "whinniny emails," will be the source of my demise.... But it also seems to me, that I'm winning the current game: Perhaps a desperate attempt to save himself from destruction?

CHEF You are a slow, fetid, piece of zuccini. Send me a turn or die a thousand deaths!!! tongue.gif

EDIT: Me no shpell gud.

To be fair, I have to admit that I seem to have been given divine advantage in our game, Ambusho of Shadows. However, My henceforth trashing of that Elvis bloke is not a unique occurence, for it seems that I have developed a habit of teaching him a lesson over our past few meetings. Fact be told, He beat me like a drum in our first outing (a result of my initial "PengChallenge"). Since then, I have bested him every time we met (which I reckon to be about 4).

I hate him, and I know he hates me like a brother, but it pains me some small bit, to have so utterly kicked the crap out of him, but what the hey! It's the HollyDays! I hate him too!!

Where was I? Ahh, it don't matter, as I am now off of the antibiotics, and now able to spew bile be-fitting a malt-liquor imbibing pustule.

Piss Off!

I must agree with you here, I am playing Andreas' 'last man standing' and it appears that I have lots more pointy, 'splodey stuff than he does. What armour he has left has been sniped at, shot at and generally herded into little corners where I'm sure they don't want to be.

I would almost feel sorry for him in his current predicament if I didn't think he was such a tosser.

Two things:

Zed. "I hope a bucket of nails falls on your head." was one of Meeks's. It was my sig line for a while because I loved and revered and emulated MrMeeks at all times.

plonk. "Die a lot now." (please note correct use of the phrase 'a lot' {"alot" not being a word}) was a bastardization of the line "Depart a lot now, or we make castinets out of your testicals already!" by the French Persons at the castle (maybe the castle ARRRGGGHHH!{?} I can't be bothered to look it up in the script at this juncture.) from the most holi of movies, Monti Python ich den Holi Grailen.

That's all I have to say about that except perhaps that I am curious as to what I would be doing to a particular person if I were to "humilte" him or her? Is that similar to gefilte? Would I be chopping him up mooshing him together with some matzoh and preserving him in a gelatinous fluid?

[old Jewish person's voice] Oy! ya meshugganah! Comovaheah, boy. Have a nice humilte its gud. The humilte at Murray's Deli is fackecht, ya'd havta be a putz to try. This humilte is not so bad like Murray's. Vat! Try it! Ungrateful kid. In my day we'd be happy, THRILLED fur zum nice humilte. Yeesh! [/old Jeswish person's voice]

Peng

Oh, and by the way, MrHumilte might not like so much the last movie?

Damn damn damn UBB

Soldiers,

My "WILL" if you will, has come into seruis question. i'd like to take this moment to consider this strange notion. Okay done. I pray that some day this entire thread, and all its history, past, present, and future; not disclossing all possilbe kin-dead or living, be, in anywich way, ground up into zuccini paste, and covered in mild, "ranch" dressing. thenforth this tastless mix of diced clods, and wankers, shall be devoired. Of course no human could actually, devoir ranchy zuccini paste, so we shall supply this blend of ****e, to worthless three toed hill billies, who, I'm sure, will have no dissagreement to eating goo-worth less then the skunk, or pussum he ate that morning. He will then take it unto himself to SOD OFF.

PENG You worthless wanker. I'll staple your ears to my art deco wall, and nail your tounge to my toaster! I'll play darts with your eyes, and use your nose as a pencil holder, you stifhless Lenin zuccini!

I hope a bucket of nails falls on your head.

Sorry M’lud, I was thinking of someone else. May I offer you my sincere appologies on my attempted trivialisation of your grate self. Maybe I can offer something ease your obviously troubled mind. You are utterly correct, I am less

Can someone go over to Stuka's and bash him over the head with a Koala or a very unripe Mango? The scenario is called 'To the last man' for arse's feckin' sake, and has nowt to do with some abomination called 'Last man standing', which reminds me of a bad Bruce Willis movie.

Well, it seems that reading is not his strongest area (given that the name of the scenario is written in the interface screen), probably much like writing, thinking, taunting, common decency or any other positive attribute you care to mention. Oh well, what can one expect from a product of the Australian school system, where convicts are heros. I guess he has his personal Crocodile write his posts.

Anyways, merry sodding Christmas to you all, and remember, there is a special place in hell for those who have BBQs on Christmas or New Year.

In the interim I'm pleased to note that he has updated his profile to include location and email ... I don't recall, has he bothered to ACTUALLY CHALLENGE SOMEONE!

I tell you lads, it wasn't like this in the OLD CessPool!

And lest I forget, may you all experience a Rollicking Ragnarok!

Johan<hr></blockquote>You wish! You:

(ii) Are a ferriner, and not even an Australian ferriner for whom I could work up a good, honest disgust, but some flavor of Scandahoovian ferriner who had descendants who colonized Minnesota.

(II) Haven't given me a good reason to challenge you since I quote whom I choose when I choose and how I choose.

(Aye Aye) Haven't given me a properly phrased challenge. For an example, please see the challenge I issued to that truly awful and horrid person Lawyer. I have taken it upon myself to improve the quality of the challenges and to bring them into accordance with the Code Duello! Your challenge is so lame that a Gentleman such as myself (added to forstall some SSN from replying with ... Oh yeah, but, but, but you Ain't one ... so there) wouldn't dream of accepting it.

(Hai Hai) Are correct in your admiration for the Tiger line ... it was true too, as Stuka lost a Tiger in the very turn he demanded. Yes, Stuka, your forces took out a Sherman II on the same turn, no need to pout. He is, I should point out, in deep doo-doo as I have him flanked and at short range with Shermans and every time one of his vehicles moves it dies.

But thanks for your interest and please be assured that your request and resume will be filed for future needs that may arise.
