  1. Only hi-res are out, in terms of content they are the same and certainly above and beyond what they were originally. Pretty not bad for something that is free.
  2. A deal no sane person can possibly refuse!
  3. Steel Panthers are completely worth it (yeah, they are Gary Grigsby's games too). That is their most current versions - WinSPMBT and WinSPWW2. Quite detailed wargames they are, considering their age, and are still being updated by a fan dev team.
  4. Eh it would be easy to do if SB Pro PE DRM (or whatever) didn't block ReShade
  5. Uh huh. Steel Beasts seems to not work well with anything that would intercept directX calls somehow. And this is somewhat annoying - can't use ReShade for example.
  6. Would like to see M1 and L2 tank "cockpits" brought up to current quality standards of M60 and T72 Those new tank insides are really pleasant to look at, which make older, low res textures and low poly detail of previously available tanks stick out like a sore thumb.
  7. M1A2 SEP...v2
  8. What makes that $500 price tag even juicier is VBS3 PE being dead now, with no more updates for ~2 years and counting.
  9. i7 would be a waste of money over i5 for gaming. All it offers for that price increase is hyper-threading (and some stock OC you can safely do yourself) which is useful only if you are doing some CPU-intensive work in some professional software - but for gaming it usually ends up decreasing performance
  10. In a mission I've played just yesterday it was the opposite. The platoon leader went straight into the river, while everybody else, no matter their place in a wedge, waited for him on the shore.
  11. M60 filter certainly helps a lot in many conditions in Steel Armor but in Steel Beasts I somehow feel as if they are out of place and don't help much. Probably has to do with Steel Beasts lighting being so "flat" vs. SABoW's one with hdr
  12. Getting hit in the balls with a depleted uranium dart traveling a mile per second takes some special kind of luck. Ouch.
  13. Whenever I try to switch to any event in this AAR, created freshly after clean install of 4.010, and check it in 3d world - the game crashes In fact when I'm looking at non-events even in 3d view - it's fine, but the moment an 'event' happens - the game crashes. AAR and a pair of crash dumps included crashdumps.7z
    A simple but really fun scenario, with a heavy focus on playing it like a strategy game, utilizing infantry to its fullest. Starts fairly easy but progressively gets tougher for vehicles to survive with the need for all units to cooperate and cover each other due to heavy urban fighting - especially when darkness, that is favoring western thermals, gives way to a morning light. Though I had to pick off enemy infantry one by one at the objective with the IFV, due to it using buildings for cover, which by the time I got there were all on fire and thus my infantry had trouble attacking them - and then for some reason mission didn't end, but after manually quitting I got a "major victory" outcome. P.S. definitely needs a US version too (I have then converted it to use M1A2s and Bradleys - and woods totally destroyed any major advantage that M1A2SEP's advanced thermals usually have - really fun. Plus TOW missiles for some tank in the bush hunting)
