      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

I got some sort of error message from the d/l site for this one.

"Duplicate headers received from server

The response from the server contained duplicate headers. This problem is generally the result of a misconfigured website or proxy. Only the website or proxy administrator can fix this issue."

Thanks for re-posting these. I haven't tried any user made content for CM:A yet. I'm looking forward playing the ones you put up.

I got the same error using Chrome. I tried it with IE (64bit version, if that matters) and was able to download just fine.

You're welcome, these battles are a good place to start for playing user made content. All three were created by Eddie and are very challenging with excellent map design. Thanks for letting us know what your results were downloading with a different browser. I use Opera 32-bit, but I think IE seems like the best choice for downloads from Gamefront based on your experience.

Eddie removed them because the battles were fictional and not based on historical events. They were also the first ones he created. I really enjoyed the briefings and the battles so I asked him if I could post them again so other people could give them a try. There are so few user-created battles for CMA that I wanted to make them available again to add to the choices.

At the moment I'm testing Mosul Pt.2 for myself in CM:SF and the same thing that you are for @MOS:96B2P in CM:BS, for CM:A the only thing that I'm actively working on right now is the big map with the river valley.

I got really stuck with the third mission for Abdul Gul's War.....He's up to three understrength Mujahideen platoons by this stage and is negotiating to buy some recoilless rifles with the money from the bank robbery.  I want to set up a straight(ish) fight to contrast with all the sneaking around from the first two, but his force is still pretty fragile, my last attempt was too complex, the one before too unwieldy, I'll get it right eventually, or I won't.

Well the work you're doing in CMA is worth it.  But as for CMSF may as well wait for CMSF2 and do a "MOS enhanced" scenario or campaign for it.  Waste of precious time doing more CMSF doncha think?

Not really fella, it keeps me outta trouble, plus it's all good practice.  I'll do the two standalones for CM:SF:

'Ashsh al-Dababir' (The Hornets' Nest)

'Al Hutumah' (The Crusher)

Then I'll take what I've learned (and probably the maps too) and see if I can string them into something better in CM:SF II, I've got to give campaign scripts a proper shakedown at some point, a simple three to five part 'Push to the Tigris' might be a good option.

BTW - The third scenario of 'Abdul Gul's War' is almost the scenario you tested for me, way back when, but from the other side and with a twist.....I'll get it right eventually, you can test it when I do, if you want.  ;) 

PS - It's just occurred to me that these scenarios may not be technically possible in CM:SF II due to probable issues with the Core, I've got a nasty feeling that instead of Humvees & (Nyalas pretending to be) MRAPs, CTS would get a variety of interesting supply dumps.  :(

If you could send me a PM link as well I'd be much obliged.
