  1. The TS3 server has been updated, it's likely you'll be forced to upgrade your client in order to connect. Thanks
  2. Steel Beast Team Speak server version outdated

    Teamspeak is upgraded to the latest version now, everyone will have to update their client in order to connect.
  3. Ad-hoc/Impromptu SB sessions

    Personal matters should be handled via PM. Thanks!
  4. This is straight from the manual - either bookmark it or print it out, you will need it if you plan on doing any tinkering with scenarios or maps, etc. PERSONAL: The directory that serves as a repository for a user’s personal files. A typical path is: “C:\Documents and Settings\username\MyDocuments\ eSimGames\Steel Beasts” . For VISTA: “C:\Users\username\Documents\eSimGames\Steel Beasts” . The PERSONAL directory contains: Personal scenarios Saved images Exported files Mission reports Personal mods (e.g., skins and sounds) Saved Plans This directory is created for the user when he runs Steel Beasts for the first time. (Each user, of course, has his own PERSONAL directory.) This is the only directory that most users will have an interest in (to look at saved images, or read a mission report, for example). COMMON_APPDATA: The directory containing application data for all users. A typical path is “C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\eSim Games\Steel Beasts”. For VISTA: “C:\ProgramData\eSimGames\Steel Beasts”. The COMMON_APPDATA directory contains Map files (Height and Terrain) Common (shared) scenario files The system administrator might want to restrict write-permission to this folder in order to prevent users from modifying these files. In this case, only users with write-permissions to this directory will be able to use the map editor. ********NOTE********* This folder is normally hidden. In order to see it, you will have to go to tools->folder options, select the view tab, and choose "show hidden files and folders in order to see it. ********************* APPDATA: The directory that serves as a repository for application-specific data. A typical path is: “C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\ eSim Games\Steel Beasts”. For VISTA: "C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\eSim Games\Steel Beasts" The APPDATA directory contains Options file Records file (ppf file) LOCAL_APPDATA: The directory that serves as a data repository for local (nonroaming) applications. A typical path is “C:\Documents and Settings\ username\Local Settings\Application Data\eSim Games\Steel Beasts”. The LOCAL_APPDATA directory contains Temporary ground texture files PROGRAM_FILES: The directory containing those files necessary to run Steel Beasts. A typical path is “C:\Program Files\eSim Games\SB Pro”. Files within this directory should not be modified. Typically, only the system administrator has the permission necessary to modify these files, and hence to install Steel Beasts.
  5. WIKI snafu's

    When the wiki sent you a email, did it have a email confirmation link? In any case, I think it should work now.
  6. WIKI snafu's

    Zero - the wiki should have sent you some login details. Let me know if you did not get them.
  7. TGIF Battle

    Weekly TGIF battle, meet on the steelbeasts.com teamspeak server at 9 PM Central Standard Time. This is currently Sat, 2 AM UTC/GMT. Everyone is welcome, no experience required. Doing some of the tutorials to learn the basics before arrival is recommended. If you have never attempted online play before, please show up a 10 minutes early and ask someone there to help you test out your ability to connect. Typically we run head to head battles, but we will do co ops from time to time as well.
  8. Can we play on?

    Some missions are not meant to be won, and you measure a "win" by how little units you lost or how little ground you gave up. I can understand why that is a difficult thing to handle.
  9. No Sound ( getting these errors) [solved]

    What other audio stuff is set up? USB headset? Something is interfering with the windows default audio device.
  10. Problem with License

    Try installing the latest codemeter runtime here: https://www.wibu.com/us/downloads-user-software/file/download/4659.html
  11. Infantry Training levels?

    Use domain policy - keep a master pstrings somewhere, then push it out across all the machines at once. If that won't work, there are other alternatives.
  12. Upgrade to Forum software?

    Awards have been moved under the users avatar, and polls should work again now.
  13. Upgrade to Forum software?

    The downtime is over, I'll keep plugging away on theme related issues.
  14. Upgrade to Forum software?

    I've got to slip this by 24 hours. Sorry!
  15. Upgrade to Forum software?

    OK - I'll work on this tuesday night, hopefully I'll be able to get it all worked out then. Until then, please be patient.
  16. Upgrade to Forum software?

    I have 3 choices on the awards icons: left align, center align, right align. I haven't had any luck moving them up and down vertically. There is no way to make them hide-able, sorry. It looks as though I'll have to start over with all my edits to this theme, most of the css has changed in the last version and the normal process for upgrading has corrupted the theme.
  17. Upgrade to Forum software?

    Give it half an hour, then try the poll again.
  18. TS server down?

    It's back up.
  19. Server Down Time

    Tuesday, 1/2, around 6pm central time, there will be some downtime here, around 1 hour or so. Teamspeak will be affected as well.
  20. New forum problem

    I'm looking into it.
  21. Upgrade to Forum software?

    I upgraded all the forum software yesterday/today. The awards can overlap with a signature but should not show up over the top of a post.
  22. Digital vs analogue FCS

    Calling one better than the other is a broad oversimplification. The design is what matters. It's not really relevant for steel beasts.
  23. Worrying security issue

    This is nothing new. Since you don't really explain in detail what the problem is in your post, here is the summary: Intel vpro enabled chipsets expose remote management functionality. Think of it as a remote desktop. It's intended for businesses to easily remote control computers. There was some vulnerabilities recently patched for this, but it is difficult/impossible to totally disable. Contact your computer vendor for bios updates. There is a utility to tell you if you have this vulnerability, it is located here: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/26755/INTEL-SA-00075-Detection-and-Mitigation-Tool Before you blow a fuse, Intel states that only business machines are affected by this and not consumer level machines/chipsets. If you truly want to be safe, just disconnect your machine from the internet, and remove all media access. It will run virus/malware free, guaranteed!
  24. TeamSpeak Problems

    This permission was probably set to avoid having someone come in and drown out existing conversations with feedback by using a improperly configured noise activated mic. Please try using push to talk.
  25. Yet another massive data breach

    First thing you see when visiting that equifax page is a warning that the certificate is invalid. Nice.
