  1. New Computer

    Pretty sure the screen shot says "All licenses are activated"? That's different to "not activated". Also pretty sure you should be looking under the CmStick tab since you have a USB stick / dongle. From memory (happy to be corrected) the "ESIMGAMES" tab is for time limited (i.e. no USB stick / dongle) licenses.
  2. See you next weekend - audio enabled.
  3. We love videos

    As always, appreciate the consideration.
  4. BLUF (Bottom Line Up Front) then background, etc. most readers will already know who BG ANZAC is, but if not feel free to read the entire post. BLUF: Timings: Thursday evenings, Australian East Coast time. Daylight saving is over here, just in time for BST etc. to kick in. Next meeting: 0900 GMT on Thursday, April 26th. 0900 GMT / Zulu / UTC 1000 in London (BST) 1700 in Perth 1830 in Darwin 1830 in Adelaide 1900 in Brisbane 1900 in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra 2100 in Auckland Your Local time: Local time for your part of the world Count down: Time remaining until Meeting start Mission will start promptly at 0900 GMT. If you want a pre game "chat" then by all means come on line at say 0800 GMT, but so that the Kiwi's aren't after Midnight the Mission will commence promptly at 0900 GMT. In game chat / Communications: You'll need access to "Teamspeak" to communicate with us. This is detailed here: http://www.steelbeasts.com/sbwiki/index.php?title=Starter_Pack Remote Access / Screen Sharing / Whiteboard Sessions: We continue the use of TeamViewer so people without the Steel Beasts software can connect and see and hear what we see and hear (looking over our shoulder if you like). http://www.teamviewer.com/en/index.aspx?pid=google.tv.s.au&gclid=CPLOveOGlcECFVgkvQodqk0A4g This maybe a suitable vehicle for people to see what the software is all about (you can even use it on a Mac), without having to invest in even a short time limited copy. Anyway we'll see how it goes. Agenda: 1. If we get enough people coming back, perhaps run their solutions to the homework given out previously? I've updated the "SOSRA" mission to avoid the lack of FASCAM (refer post in Support thread). Link to the current version will be in the email accompanying this post. 2. Revisiting some "not so easy missions" from the past - probably harder still after 4.023. These need a few people to turn up. 3. Do some "Brilliant at the Basics" work? As always, visitors / first timers / spectators are welcome. Current Standard: 4.023 Please use the new Calendar RSVP function or post here to facilitate planning. Background: Who is BG ANZAC? https://www.bganzac.org Described here: http://www.steelbeasts.com/sbforums/showthread.php?t=21753 A couple of examples of the BattleGroup at work: Multi Player session: Training session: So if you are interested, visit our web site https://www.bganzac.org and sign up.
  5. M113, Battle of Marawi

    I don't know how they are secured. Presumably reasonably well or they'd just fall off and be run over.
  6. M113, Battle of Marawi

    Good luck accessing the engine under those tyre / bucket combinations. Great for checking oil levels, etc. every morning.
  7. Welcomed back TAC197 and did a undermanned run of the new, improved SOSRA scenario. I'll amend this a little bit more to: a. Give Blue a CO vehicle b. Plug a hole in the final defensive belt.
  8. That's preety much the norm, I'm afraid. A revolving pool of people with some making it for some nights, and others for other nights. The goal is to get them all to turn up at the same time.
  9. T72-M not firing really

    I'm assuming the fire control settings on the T-72s are "Fire at Will" as opposed to say "return fire"?
  10. Steel Beasts: Content Wish List

    Hence my comment about the only time I've used a compass, being when in the desert. In that case, just revert to the currently existing vehicle / view orientation icon in the bottom right hand corner - assuming the scenario designer hasn't disabled it.
  11. Steel Beasts: Content Wish List

    I think primarily to satisfy people (non military users) on this list. Sure and that's why I'm pretty sure that we at least as a Defence user haven't asked for it - because we don't see a need for it. Not to say some other country wont though.
  12. Steel Beasts: Content Wish List

    Without re-opening the protractor conversation, no it isn't. You navigate in a AFV by doing map to ground. There is a church on my left and a copse of trees to my right, therefore I am here and I'm facing N / S / E or W. I can refine that by lasing the church if needed to tell me exactly how far away it is, and therefore where I am. The only time I've used a compass on an AFV was a sun compass in the desert, never a magnetic one.
  13. 25mm Bushmaster STAB question

    I've made some enquiries and sent a PM to Dark about it. My information is ASLAV specific, so can not comment on the other vehicles mentioned.
