  1. Well Monday the 13th is a Public Holiday for me, so if they run a session on the evening of the 12th GMT, I can help out.
  2. Well as I say, in 10+ years of using the Pro version I've never experienced "severe limitations". I'm also not sure how many defence buyers would want to buy something that required such a hardware refresh. I know of several sites here that just use a collection of laptops with one machine labelled as the server, by virtue of it having the dongle. If they now need a dedicated server then we lose a fair bit of flexibility. I suspect we might be also constraining the community a bit if you need some sort of dedicated server box to run the "server" software. Currently the limitation is usually network bandwidth, not CPUs. Maybe just don't mess with the maps (sorry I don't know what your "editing" consists of). I also know that we have run the exact same scenarios that you guys have had issues with and have not had issues. It just seems to be a big change that might fix an issue that as far as I know only one VU is experiencing.
  3. Who is BG ANZAC? http://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 http://www.bganzac.org and sign up. Timings: Thursday evenings, Australian time. So Daylight Saving has kicked in here and for the next 6 months the country is broken up into yet more time zones. Next meeting: 0830 GMT on Thursday, February 23rd 0830 in London 1630 in Perth 1800 in Darwin 1900 in Adelaide 1930 in Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra 1830 in Brisbane 2130 in Auckland Local time for your part of the world This may need to be adjusted given the late start in NZ, perhaps moving to 0800 GMT? So a work around: Mission will start promptly at 0830 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 0830 GMT. Count down: Time to Meeting start 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, without having to invest in even a short time limited copy. Anyway we'll see how it goes. Agenda: As always depends on sign ups but: 1. We'll have our third Chong Ju solution (trace below). So far we have had two "workable" solutions to the problem and the standard has been good. If people are bored with the current one I have a version 2 file of the original and a "not so easy" option, which we can use if you like. Please Note: A plan file that you have built for the original will not work with either of these newer ones, so if you want to use your plan file, we must use the original scenario. Or you can get one of the newer ones and "update" your plan to suit. 2. If there isn't enough for "Chong Ju", then we'll look at an alternate scenario. 3. Scope for Q & A / Tutorial session - again depends on responses and if people come ready to ask questions. As always, visitors / first timers / spectators are welcome. Current Standard: 4.010 Please use the new Calendar RSVP function or post here to facilitate planning.

  5. I think he means "globally" (i.e. every vehicle).
  6. Another great "write up" thanks again for popping by. If I'd know you were sitting back and munching popcorn I would have given you a tank to command in the maelstrom.
  7. Yes its not so intuitive, but click on "Activity" in the top right hand corner and you'll see "Search" as an option. Its one of the changes that came about when the forum software was replaced / upgraded.
  8. I don't get the "better server" bit? Certainly I've used the Pro version of the software to support almost a 100 concurrent users in a stable defence LAN, where admittedly we controlled the quality of the networking, etc. I've also participated in, and in cases hosted, events with the Pro PE software with 40+ users with little or no problem and there people were scattered across the planet and we had no control over the quality people's networking / Internet connection.
  9. Do you receive a royalty every time you publish that? Less flippantly though, we were very successful on Thursday night, hunting T-90s with Carl Gustav.

  15. I suspect badly. There are a bunch of "surprises" to deal with.
  16. I'd suggest you select "a" vehicle (the choice is yours) and become profficient in it - i.e. do all the Tutorials. Lots of skills learnt on say a M1 are transferrable to CR2, Leo, etc. (e.g. vehicle craft, navigation, etc.). Then once you are happy with "a" vehicle in a family (say a tank) select another on the list and you may well find that 80% of it is similar and there will be just some differences (usually in the fire control system area). If you half complete the tutorials on "a" tank and then jump to say "a" IFV you'll find it harder and take longer. No doubt lots of people will now tell you their preference for the "a" vehicle, but at the end of the day its up to you. Perhaps being from Canada you'll be a Leo (1 or 2) fan, but you could just as easily pick the M1 series (or CR2 or T-72, or ...) You can of course just "jump in" but make it clear to the others that you are brand new and they'll probably pair you with a mentor or avoid giving you a critical role. Its highly unlikely you'll be lumbered with a vital job if brand new, unless of course you don't tell anyone that you are brand new. Of course much of this is already included in the previously referenced "Starter Pack".
  17. Looks like it.
  18. Duke, Glad you managed to connect after all.
  19. A Telic option would be good.
  20. Be careful. I think there is a limit to how far back the $40 option goes. I think you need to: 1. First update to that intermediate version (whatever the number is). 2. Then update from there to 4.010. I'm unsure if 2.370 is before or after that change over point (hence why I didn't specify a number).
  21. Pretty sure 2.370 is a patch to 2.251. 2.370 is not 4.010 (there a whole bunch of versions in between). To catch up 10 years, leapfrog all the intermediate versions, and get to 4.010 you'll need to spend money.
  22. OK, I think we have it sorted. The actual SB software wasn't installed so he couldn't access the built in scenarios (or anything). He was confusing the Forum for the Software. We have worked through: - Setting up Teamspeak. - The steps to download the software. - The steps to install the software. - The steps to activate his time limited "bridging" license (until the dongle turns up). - What the Main Menu looks like so he'll know when he is in the right place and can access the built in scenarios, tutorials, gunnery range, etc.
  23. OK I've re-arranged some things and will loiter on TeamSpeak from the time of this post for 30mins. If you need a hand, please come and we can talk it through / explain it to you. Update: PM sent just in case you don't see this.
  24. I hope no one is trying to create a plan file whilst the scenario continues to "evolve".
