  1. Thanks guys for the info and how-to.
  2. I've got my Joystick setup and keys assigned. I want to save it and put it on my bkup drive for future installs. Where is my saved JS profile located and what is the file named? Thanks.
  3. My old PC died and I've just purchased a new one. I was running SB v3.011. I'm going to DL 3.025 for the new install. Is there a charge for the 3.025 upgrade? I understand that the latest codemeter software will now work with Chrome? I'm running Win7 Pro 64-bit. My install procedure as I recall should be as follows: 1) DL the latest Codemeter Software to work with the dongle. 2) Install SB v3.025. 3) Install the Codemeter Software. I can't remember how the new license upgrade thru Codemeter is processed. Is the license upgrade automatic thru the attached dongle? Just want to know if all of the above is correct before I start the installation process to avoid any problems. Thanks.
  4. Thanks for clarifying SSnake. Yes, I meant removing the old Codemeter Runtime Software. Will do and thanks again for the prompt response.
  5. I just installed the 3.011 update with included the new Codemeter Runtime Kit license v5.10a. As I now see two codemeter licenses in the program files I assume its' OK to uninstall the old runtime kit v5.00d without incurring any problems?
  6. Thanks Tacbat, I wasn't sure everything was OK.
  7. I can't seem to figure out how to save my mission progress. Has this feature been implemented yet? I thought this option was in SB 3.0. Usually in most games it appears as an option when you hit the ESC key.
  8. OK, I installed SB 3.0 today and the game is up and running great. However, I noticed I have two Codemeter Icons in my tray, one behind the other. When I bring up the Codemeter Control center under the license tab it shows the CM Stick and serial no. And on the right area it also shows I'm using ver 1.18 and the button shows it is enabled. Underneath the Cm Stick in the license tab area it also shows ESIMGAMES and another serial no. with the icon greyed out. On the right it says: Status: Empty license container. It has the button Activate License enabled and the other button Remove License greyed out and inactive. I not sure what I should do here and need info. Thanks.
  9. Thanks for the quick reply SSnake. I think I'll wait until you guys get everything sorted out. I've waited this long...I can wait a little longer. Meanwhile, I can continue playing v2.552. I'll keep tabs on this forum until I see your post that everything is OK.
  10. With all the various postings about codemeter activation problems I would like some clarification on what I've gleaned from all of this as I'm preparing to buy the 3.0 upgrade and install. First of all I'm running SB v.2552 so its' been awhile since I've gone through the process. I'm also using the Codemeter Stick ver. 1.18 and running Win 7 64-bit. I have admin de-activated so that should not be a problem with the install. I've downloaded all the 3.0 files and I just want to know if my old notes on the license upgrade and install procedure are correct: 1) Uninstall the old Steel Beasts software. 2) Uninstall Codmeter runtime software. 3) Purchase and install new license and codemeter runtime software from the email link provided. 4) Install new SB 3.0 5) Verify that I have the latest DX9 installed. (I think I'm OK in that regard as I just updated Rise of Flight with a new DX9 version.) Sorry to add to the questions here, but with so many postings about what to do and what not to do I'm a little confused. I'm currrently suffering from a terrible sinus pressure headache and I'm not thinking too well, so please bear with me on this. Thanks.
  11. Will the new save game feature in 3.0 work with the existing scenarios or only with new scenarios created with save points?
  12. I know its' early, and I'm probably in the minority here in wanting the DVD instead of the download, but do we have any estimate of when the SB 3.0 DVD will be available? Thanks.
  13. Ssnake, Thanks for the clarification and additional info. I'll probably stick with SB v2.552 until the disc version of v2.640 is available. I think I read that it will probably be available for purchase sometime in February.
  14. I just experienced a HD failure and will be installing a new one along with updating from Vista 32-bit to Win 7 64-bit OS. I'll be re-installing SteelBeasts. I'm currently using the disc-based V2.538 which I updated with the patch to v2.552. Not being familiar with the inner-workings of the dongle my question is: Does the dongle itself retain the current license I'm using so I don't have to download it again? Also, I believe the update v2.552 which I have on a portable backup drive was just a small patch that I can simply install over v2.538? Are there any other issues, tips I should know about installing SB with the Win 7 64-bit OS?
  15. I just ordered the upgrade on DVD (I've decided to wait and use it for my install instead of the DL). Clarification on install procedure: 1) Uninstall the game. 2) Install the upgraded game from the disc. 3) Activate the new CM license from the link in the E-Mail I received. Is the above procedural sequence correct? Questions: (I think I read the answers in another post, but just want to be sure): All my DL'd missions will still work in the new upgrade? My joystick settings will be kept with the new install? Thanks!
