CMMOS COMPATIBLE UNIVERSAL CARRIERS

At long last, a set of CMMOS compatible mods that incorporate all the Universal Carrier mods on the TOMMY and CANUCK websites.

What is CMMOS?

CMMOS (CM Mod Option Selector) is a program written for Windows by Gordon Molek and is available at Combat Mission Headquarters (the main Battlefront site for its Combat Mission game).

It provides the CM player with "a simple, intuitive and fast interface for selecting particular option sets."

Using CMMOS is easy:

Simply click on the CMMOS shortcut that is installed on the desktop, and the user will see a smallish tabbed window with a set of icons displayed and a set of buttons.

The tabs allow access to different RuleSets (in the case of this download, Canadian Uniforms). The icons represent the various Rules available: CM Default Carrier, Basic Carrier, etc.   When an icon is selected, the Reset and Apply buttons will be enabled (non grayed out).

If you press the Apply button, the selected Rule will be installed. If you press the Reset button, the selected Rule will be de-selected. If the particular Rule selected supports Options, you will see below that icon a standard list box allowing you to choose which Option you want to install.

If the BMPs necessary to implement a particular Rule are not installed, the icon representing that Rule is disabled.

Hints are also available for each icon and button, just leave the mouse pointer positioned over the icon or button until the hint text is displayed (hints do not show up on buttons that are disabled (or "grayed out").

For this download to work properly, RuleSet 958 must not be in use.  This set is contained in the 900 range allocated by the CMMOS design team for "personal" use.

What does this download contain?

This download contains the ability for CMMOS to switch between several different styles of Universal Carrier artwork, which will also affect the WASP and MG CARRIERs in the game.   The artwork will be the same for all Polish, British and Canadian carriers.

How do I get this download to operate properly?

You must have a working copy of CMMOS.   Some users who have dowloaded DFDR will find a conflict that can be rectified by following Gordon's directions at right.

  • All the bitmap folders must have the bitmaps copied into the Program Files\CMBO\BMP folder.

  • The folder named RuleSet958 must be copied into the Program Files\GEM Software Productions\CM Mod Option Selector folder.

That's all there is to it!

CMMOS TROUBLESHOOTING TIP - for those who have downloaded DFDR or multiple copies of CM:BO

If CMMOS will not work, and you have downloaded the DFDR or other mods, or installed CMBO in multiple places on the hard drive, do the following:

 Click "Start" -> Run.

In the "Open" combo-box, type "regedit" and click "OK".

Click the "+" next to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE".

Click the "+" next to "Software".

Click the "+" next to "Microsoft".

Click the "+" next to "Windows".

Click the "+" next to "CurrentVersion".

Click the "+" next to "App Paths".

Click on "Combat Mission.exe".

In the right panel there should be 2 rows, one with "(Default)" in the "Name" column and one with "Path".

Look under the "Data" column of the "Path" row.  This is the folder that CMMOS expects CM:BO to be installed. It needs this to find the BMP folder.  If not the correct directory (presumably not), right click on "Path" and select "Modify".  Change the edit box to be the correct path and click "OK".

Contains the following Rules and Options (Note, these rules will apply equally to all British, Polish and Canadian carriers in the game, as the same bmps are used for these different nationalities.
