      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

I am new to Battlefront and this game. I have been practicing against AI for about 6 hours and played both sides. CP takes skill, so I want to be Entente until I get the hang of all of this. So far, this game looks really great and the AI is killing me. Looking for a PBEM. I work 9-5 so I can do several turns each night. I hope that is okay.

Dragon, I sent you an email and a PM. Whatever side you want. I prefer Entente because it does not require as much skill. I am presently being beaten by someone playing CP and I am the Entente, but they appear to be a non-mistake-making-machine.., man! You European guys are good!

How has the game been going for PvP? I see so few posts on this post that I'm worryed it will be hard to find players. Also why no AARs yet?

It is hard to find PBEM, I have 2 games going. I am hoping after the patch things pick up. As far as how is it without the patch, I cannot vouch for play balance yet, but it works great. There are some enhancements (assistance with movement because it is almost impossible to determine in the mountains and other places; and right now NM means nothing). But it is good to go. If you want to give it a try, I have never been CP and I will try that. Or you can be CP, whatever you want. Be aware that I am highly confident that I am not very good. So if you want a top player, pass me by for now.

ive finally decided to risk my ego in a multi player game of WW1 Great War. i'd prefer the call to arms campaign game with me as the entante, but im willing to play the cp too.

i think i have the game system down well enough to not totally humilate myself. ;)

im on vacation right now, so i can do several turns a day if you wish.

you can email me at patrat@mchsi.com
