  2. How to install skins

    Ok, this is a step by step guide to installing skins in Steel Beast Pro. Step one: Download a skin These can be found here: http://www.steelbeasts.com/Downloads/p13_sectionid/255 Once you've download a skin, you need to extract it. So if its in a zip folder copy the contents and paste them to your desktop.
  3. UI Scaling for UHD?

    Rotar gave me the tip that windows scaling was the problem. So, make sure your windows scaling is set to zero, then launch sb and pick a resolution less than 4k, like 2k. In full screen mode. Its annoying, but it works. Just have to change scaling to zero before playing, then put it back to +125% or whatever you were using when done. I don't have any doubt that our programmers can fix this, when they have time. But it may be awhile, so at least there is a way.
  4. Wargames

    Islands of the Damned, by against the odds magazine is awesome. All time classic single player games. Given up for dead is my favorite of the two games that come in this issue, because of the history of Wake island. Both are great though. This issue is a great one to pick up if your new to wargaming. It is inexpensive, and the games are simple, and fast to learn. But still doing a great job a telling, letting you take part, in the history of these two forgotten battles. And of course you get the magazine, with good primers of the history of both battles. I got turned on to it by SingleHandedWarfare's youtube channel. His videos are great, watch it played, info. He doesn't post many videos these days, to busy with RL afaik.

  7. Why the price?

    Well, at least we haven't adjusted the cost for inflation. By my math the adjusted cost should now be $148.81. We are now living in the "Steam" era, were thousands of games are at everyone's finger tips. Were we all wait, and watch for the big steam sale, and buy 20 games (or more) for the cost of one SB copy. So its easy to see how the $125 price point may seem out of touch, even outrageous to some. SteelBeast Pro Pe is not a game, nor has entertainment ever been the driving force in its development. This is the same software used to train soldiers across the world, minus a few features that will be unimportant to most. It is constantly being updated with content requested, and payed for by our military clients. Major defense contractors use our software for their hardware. I may sound like a tool, but I felt privileged to even be able to buy it. And now to work on it. At the time I purchased it, it was the first piece of REAL military training software I had found that I could actually purchase. Having said all that, you CAN play SB like a game for entertainment. I do it, and 90% of the rest of us around here do as well. But to the great many old hands around here, this wasn't what brought us here, it was the latter. You have to understand what it is, and isn't. Small company, Niche software, ships with a hardware dongle=$$$ When you do, I think it puts the price point in a proper context. It did for me. At least now, as Gibson pointed out, they have the option to purchase a timed license. Those who worry about wasting $125 on something that turns out to not be for them, now just have to spend $10 bucks to find that out. I would say that is just about as far as we can bend over backwards without breaking our own backs.
  8. Armored Brigade

    Very fun game. I played with it several years ago, even made a few vehicle sprites for him to try out. Can't remember if he used any of them or not. Great to hear that he is going to have a commercial version, guy deserves it. The last time I checked it was a one man programming operation, with the help from beta testers, and some contributions from a few artist. Great to see that he, and that community are still marching forward with it. It really is a little diamond. Pretty sure anyone who likes SB would enjoy playing around with Armored Brigade. Always felt this would be a great game to have on something like an Ipad. Where you didn't have desktop horsepower, but wanted your cold war fix.
  9. Merry Christmas Everyone!

    Merry Christmas guys, hope you all had a good one.
  10. Where would we be without Sean's precious internet connection... I vote that for his years of service that we knight him, or make him a saint. Sir Sean, or St Sean After the ceremony, we will then award him Tankhunter as a slave.

    When I added that, I wondered how long it would take for him to notice. Turns out, about 5 years lol

  17. Muzzle flash transfer

    As Colossus figured out, that dds is just a resource used in many of the fire effects. We completely ripped out the old system, and replaced it with an actual particle system. And none of this can be modded. All you can do is edit the some of the dds. files that the particle system uses. There are plans to add more effects, and improve some for special vehicles like artillery in the future. The old system, while it did allow users to edit things, was very primitive. With the new system, we now have something to build off of. And something that is worth working with. 4.0 is really version 1.0 of our new particle system.
