    That proper SAS engagement made my day 😀 Recognize the actor from "the young ones" (The Anarchist). What is the title of the movie again, "Whoops apochalyps"?
  2. I've not taken the time to answer this question because it is quite a complex question! In short, no - SBProPE is not too complex. In fact, the "complexity" level is the no 1 reason that drew me to the "game" in the first place, and also kept me here. But I'm one of those that always see something to learn, something to test or something to not understand(?!!). Not a generic "gamer" per se, I guess. I do not have any suggestions at the moment except "keep level as is". It is unique and extremely satisfying.

    Sounds good stormrider_sp! One of the features I suggested (was a betatester for CMANO) was adding hypertext links from the message window to the actual event. It seems it has been an attempt to implement it? Do you know anything about adding custom GIS data (shape-files) to the scenario editor? This was another request/suggestion I had 5 years ago :) I'll get it sooner or later, I guess it is not "dumbed-down", rather made more accessible?

    Not sure I'm going to get CMO, since I still play CMANO and like it a lot. One argument is that CMANO will no longer be developed, I guess. Have you gents anything to say about the new release in comparison to CMANO? I'll get 50% discount until January 31, so there's some time to make up ones mind :)

    Thank you for the elaborate answer to my question! I'll check it out more closely - sounds like heaps of fun already. Just need to cut down on my game-time with NiteTeam4

    I've kept my eyes on SC since the kickstarter days but never bought into it. I opted for Elite Dangerous at the time and have had a blast with that (and still do). However, I will probably get into SC sooner or later. At this stage, is there a solid gameplay experience or just demo sections? When would you suggest to jump into SC if I'm looking for a little more than just testing things out?

    I'm interested in both MS FS 2020 and the above (Task Force Admiral). Both looks pretty promising. 😀

    Have been playing "Radio Commander" and have progressed to mid-mission 5 (The Convoy). Really like it. It has its issues but I think of it as features (not-knowing-factor). The well made maps and execution does appeal to me, still room for improvements but it is a game in my taste - no doubt! Also played around with the editor, but it was not very intuitive (no manual as of yet). Hoping for a great editor in the long run. [EDIT] Coming back to Radio Commander, it is (at moments) amazing (well, if you - like me - can feel immersed and see the events playing out on the map). You need a bit of history and little imagination, put on some actual radio-chatter from Nam in the background and you're off on a cool journey into the Vietnam djungle. What I see foremost is potential. At this stage it is quite limited with a linear campaign, but the mechanics - connected to the map - seems quite potent.
  9. You certainly did! 😁 Welcome!
  10. My rig is not very powerful (win10, RAM 32, i7 7700/GTX1080Ti), but do the job on two monitors.
  11. Works now! ( I had to check my LAN config, open ports were set wrong) This is sweet. This way, I can be both the good guys and the bad guys 😀. But, the best is, I can keep my map open on the second screen, all the time. Lot's of other fun stuff. Thanks Gibsonm for testing. Cheers
  12. Gibsonm, yes 2 (of the same) executable on the same PC. Using one as host and other as client connecting to 127.0.0.1. I think I need to look up what ports I have open, this might have changed from last time I did this with 4.023. I'll report back if I get it to work. Cheers
  13. Ssnake, Good to hear there was no change in the licensing part (if that's correct). I am aware of the practical part, in running this in 2 instances, yes. It could however be of interest for everyone to know that it works quite well in limited scenarios, 2-3 platoons, covert ops with limited contacts, so to say. I will experiment a bit more with 4.157 and see if it's just my LAN playing tricks on me. 😀
  14. I am having a bit of a trial and error trying to run 2 instances on the same PC & LAN. I want to do this in order to keep action on one screen and the map on the other. So I connect to myself - sort of. Great for having a local HQ following the action. This worked fine in 4.023, but perhaps switching from win7 to win10 also affect this? I would like to hear if anybody else is using SB this way (mostly when designing scenarios). I might have to check my ports/tunnels as well, any thoughts welcome! /Ingolf
  15. Yes, Hoover, that is my general polycy too - keep the SSD for general machinery, But at the moment I just set it all up on SSD. Feels nice in-game. Will probably switch to "normal" locations down the road. My gaming rig is not dead serious considering the data on it, so I can just sweep it clean any day. Thanks for your input though! Cheers!
  16. True this ^^ Played around for an hour and really liked what I saw... and shot dead 😀
  17. Yes, I'll probably try all on the SSD for a start. The problem might araise if more maps see daylight, but it's always possible to re-shuffle the datalocations. Appreciate your swift reply, Ssnake! I might even make some benchmark tests between the options listed above - to guide others while at it. Great times ahead, thanks for the hard work!
  18. Great, I just saw the post with the SB installer - downloading now! So, I tried to keep up with the info regarding the installation procedure and I'm pretty clear about the options (also read thru the release notes). In order to get the best performance, do I 1. install everything on my C:\ SSD? 2. install game on C:\ SSD and maps on an internal SATA (to conserve SSD-space for other apps & windows etc)? 3. install game on C:\ SSD and maps on an external USB-connected HD (NTFS) (to conserve space on my SATA)? 4. install game and maps on internal SATA? I guess 1) is the optimal choise, but would there be a difference in game performance between 2) and 3)? Would 4) be a bad choise if I have space for the game on the SSD? Or is it better for the maps to be on an SSD? Many questions, but I hope you can help me save some testing times based on your combined experiences! Happy battles!
  19. Hmm... I havn't tried to install the binaries yet - just downloaded. Will do tomorrow in order to assist and give feedback.
  20. Thank you eSim for providing the maps as a pre-download! Hard work - great stuff! FYI, with a download rate at about 50 Mb/s it takes half an hour to download the whole package if using 3 nodes simultaneously, 3 x 9 min (didn't want to occupy all nodes at the same time). Just if anyone else wants to plan their download in between real life events 😁... Cheers, Ingolf
  21. Sweet! Good luck with the release!
  22. Still have my C64 and Amiga500. Started the C64 in 2017 and it was running fine. Gotta love this nostalgia
  23. I don't see any specific breakthrough here. I know AMD needs to catch up, and it is good they provide better architecture.
  24. Thank you Ssnake for taking the time to confirm this! Customers can sometimes be a pai* *n th* *ss, right?! I pre-ordered and got a confirmation onscreen directly. 10 seconds later, the confirmation dropped into my email inbox. I'll get the printed manual later, or just print it myself, unless I enjoy the digital version on my pad. I rely on the cable for downloading the maps later on (got 100Mbit/s connection, EU). Exiting times ahead for every PC-tankers!
  25. Thanks Rotareneq! That's what I was hoping for. I have my old printed manual but might get the upgraded one sent to me later on. Quite a few updates there I guess. So the pre-order is a better deal, instead of waiting for the release? I'm not in a hurry, but if I save a few bucks I could just as well pre-order to show my interest and appreciation of this brilliant sim. All the best, /Ingolf
