  1. I fire up SB Gold once in a blue moon to recess into pixel heaven and to bask in the glow of the sprites. Halcyon days those were.
  2. I got it, but is that because the client side is using UPnP now?
  3. Did the thread get a retirement watch or pen? I am so out of touch with the game now. How does it resolve these issues? Is it UPnP?
  4. David, any perspectives on what you do to use the resolution? Full screen? Fullscreen windowed?
  5. Thanks again for the replies. I experienced the mouse pointer disappearance as well. I will set to HD for now. Things are a little fuzzy, but its not terrible. Happy Holidays.
  6. Thank you for the reply. So, something in the range of 1920 by 1080 (HD) is the recommended max?
  7. Is 3460 by 2160 supported? The UI has several issues at this resolution, so I am wondering if there are any tricks. Or, is this just too high of a resolution for SBProPE? Thanks.
  8. 2-ply or 1-ply?
  9. Seems like the removal of map updates is always great for reinforcing platoon tactics. Just let the platoon commander worry about where you are on the map. If you get lost, it is his fault. In any case, map study is good and it looks like this map from the ever artful manteuffel is tops. Are all of his creations in the download library?
  10. So much of the combat footage you can watch from the last decade or so on the web looks just like this. Take contact, hunker down, throw masses of ammo downrange, and then call in arty/air.
  11. I will try to get in and control a Ural or something one night. I can be the wa-wa-waterboy. Looks like the quality is on the rise with this installment.
  12. Would it be possible to conduct, as a simultaneous side-show, operation constant? We all line up, on the flat map, 100 meters apart, with everything disabled except for crew and the main gun. All gun sights, turret motors, and computer wizardry are disabled. Last man standing wins. Not so much a campaign as it is catharsis. Could certainly be used as a pre-mission drill to up the intensity. Great-looking campaign BTW.
  13. Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries.
  14. First of all, RogueSnake doesn't know ____ from shinola <-this part is a joke However, I got these micropauses years ago (2009 or so?) and I've learned to just ingore it. However, I am with Sean and the tactical bat in that I think it is disk I/O related. The AAR files are HUUUUUUUGE.
