  1. I'm running 4.010. Thanks for all the hard work. I can't seem to get my UGV or UAV to deploy. I've assigned them to my infantry units in the editor. Tried 'y' and 'shift-t' as instructed in the control panel of the game, also 'Z' as instructed in the manual, after trying both F7 and F11 to put me in the commander's position, with no luck. Any help would be appreciated.
  2. I realize they are on back order. I was just willing to pay for everything at once and thought it just might be an error on the purchase site. No big deal.
  3. I'm ready to download 3.0 and I would like to order a CD at the same time. I don't care if I have to wait a few months for the CD. But the esim store won't let me do that. Why not? Thanks
  4. Thanks for the upgrade! I noticed that when in the operator position of the javelin missile team, I cannot control which target is selected. Am I not doing something correctly? (I also noticed this in the previous version.) Also I noticed that the BTR80s do not burn or smoke when destroyed.
  5. I noticed while playing a scenario (and rechecked with a specially designed scenario) that the t-80u can fire the songster or refleks missile accurately while on the move, even while moving at top speed perpendicular to the line of fire. Is this correct? This might be a false alarm but I was under the impression that with most AT missiles that the firing platform had to remain relatively stationary.
  6. SSD

    I'm considering installing an SSD in my Dell desktop. Could someone please tell me what, if any, advantage it would give me in running SBpe. Thanks
  7. I’m also running windows 7 64bit and had to change the “state” of my Cmstick. The answer was on the Microsoft website: "You should switch the state of your CmStick from local disk to removable disk. You can change this with our tool “Code Meter Disc Configuration”. Start->All Programs->CodeMeter->Tools->Disc Configuration, then go to the rider “Option” and change the value 'Disk Type'."
  8. Sorry, I was not clear. The "Print report" under "File" when the scenario is opened.
  9. Thanks, but is that what the "Print report" button is referring to or is it referring to the briefing? Also, regarding the first part of my question is there a way to print the maps without going to windowed mode?
  10. Thanks for the quick reply. First, going to windowed mode worked. The program does not lock up and the maps are saved. (I assume they are in a format that will print, I don't have my printer hooked up right now.) I can live with going to windowed mode to print the maps but is there some adjustment I can make so that I can stay in full screen mode? Second, maybe I have misunderstood what the "Print report" button does. I assumed it would print the briefing for the scenario. If it does I'm getting a blank document. It just occurred to me that it may print the "report" referred to on the right of the window under the "DISPLAY" selector in which case there is never anything there. (What is that "report" selection there for anyway?) Thanks for the help.
  11. I'm having a related problem. I'm running win7 X64. When I open up a scenario and go under "File" and select "Print blank map", "Print displayed map" or "Print report" the program freezes. It doesn't crash. The window stays open and the computer doesn't freeze because I can still move the cursor but the buttons in the SB program no longer operate. I have to CTRL-ALT-DELETE out of the program. The task manager says that the program is not responding and I have to force quit. After I force quit there is a "Save the file as" widow that is saving an .xps document. If I name and save the document it doesn't show up where directed or anywhere else. I have no other problems running SB. I've had SB for quite a while, I've just never pushed one of those three buttons before. Any advice would be appreciated. (I have Adobe 9.1.2 on my computer if it makes a difference and I also have an xps file viewer. )
  12. I just made a copy of the Salisbury plain height map and renamed it. It seem to work.
  13. I had the same problem and found the answer on the Microsoft website: "You should switch the state of your CmStick from local disk to removable disk. You can change this with our tool “Code Meter Disc Configuration”. Start->All Programs->CodeMeter->Tools->Disc Configuration, then go to the rider “Option” and change the value 'Disk Type'."
  14. You've probably already noticed this but just in case you haven't: On the CV90/35 from either the commander's or the gunner's position, the right smoke discharger switch creates a smoke screen straight ahead, the center switch creates a screen to the left and the left switch creates a screen to the right. The TAB key creates a screen to the right.
  15. I'm looking at a new computer. Given roughly equal capabilities, is there any reason to choose an ATI or Nvidia graphics card, one over the other for SB Pro PE? Thanks!
