  1. Thx for explaining. I learned something new :bigsmile: is there a way to squeeze some more performance out of this setup? For example 16 bit textures or so? all other settings inside SB didnt make much of an improvement.....
  2. Can it also explain why other games\sims did have an improvement? For example, my most played sim, falcon bms runs quite smooth with this card, while with the 560, i needed to turn most shaders off, for smooth flight
  3. Thx for your answer Dunc. That explains it quite clearly. So, in other words, my feeling was right about the slower performance?
  4. Yes i do have it. Old card: - Asus gtx560 directcu 1 gb ddr5 ~900 mhz clock speed New card: -Asus gtx750ti strix version 2 gb ddr5 ~1350 mhz clock speed Strix version means, it's factory OC'ed On paper, it should make a big difference
  5. OK, i ran the diag thingy and sent it by mail
  6. im sorry, my english is not that great. I meant to say, the gtx 750 ti shows up in the Nvidia panel and device manager
  7. Hello Ssnake, Yes, they both show up, as a gtx 750 ti. I did buy it in a computer shop, not from the internet, if thats what you are referring too.
  8. Hello guys, im having a somewhat strange problem with SB Pro. I recently bought a gtx 750 TI (former card was a gtx 560) and my fps with this card is lower than my old one. On most maps, i feel like my system is barely reaching 30 fps. I did remove and reinstalled the latest Nvidia drivers, played around with config settings in Nvidia profiler and also turned off every eye-candy ingame. None of these made a real difference. I also reinstalled SB Pro version 3.027 and deleted the config file and also these changes had no effect. Also made sure my card is not running on adaptive power management. Im kinda on a dead end now, or maybe im missing something here... Im running the 64 bit exe of SB pro. System specs: - Win 7 64-bit with SP1 - Asus p8h61 MoBo - 8 Gb DDR3 1300 mHz - Intell i5 2500 3,3 GHz (quad core) - GTX 750TI (Strixs version) (2 GB) - 2x Hitachi 500 Gb Sata HD - Nexus 600W power supply
  9. Im too busy playing the sim, then to be typing :luxhello:
  10. thx for clearing that up! You'll learn something new everyday :bigsmile:
  11. I read somewhere in the tutorials, that you always needed to use the palm-switch if your own vehicle (Leo) was moving when engaging targets? From the manual : "Once either you or the targets start moving, LEAD will probably have to be added to the gun to ensure that the round hits the target. Lead is added to compensate for the distance the target (or your tank) moves while the round is in the air. " And: "-If the target is moving, you must hold down the DYNAMIC LEAD button. In this case, the (nearly) instantaneous angular velocity of the turret is also used in the lead calculation. Dynamic lead is cancelled as soon as you release the dynamic lead button." "-If the target is stationary and your tank is moving, you also have to hold down the DYNAMIC LEAD button. In this case the (nearly) instantaneous angular velocity of the turret is also used in the lead calculation. The ballistic computer can not calculate how much closer/further away from the target, you are getting during the engagement, so remember to lase at frequent intervals." Now i'm confused :confused:
  12. Hello Sean, your suggestion did the trick. Steel Beasts is working now! I think Norton was indeed the problem. Thx a lot and happy tanking! Regards, Falconeer
  13. You mean a re-download? I reinstalled it 3 times now.... Regards, Falconeer
  14. Hello Retro, i just checked and the files are missing:( There is a m1 folder (which is empty too), fireballTIS.dds, missileTIS.dds, muzzleflashTIS.dds, ulanIntSrc1.bmp and xPlode1TIS.dds The above is all there is in the image folder. Regards, Falconeer
  15. That's a good suggestion... I can't remember, but it's not a big deal to try that one Will let you know edit: That didn't work, still got the same errors and doesn't start...
  16. Hello, last night i had to format my drive and reinstall Windows, due to a harddrive crash. I downloaded the full version (3.011) from this page:http://www.esimgames.com/?page_id=1390 and reinstalled Steal Beasts. Installed the Codemeter software that came with the installer (without plugging in the dongle) Created a shortcut on my desktop, from the file located in Esim Games/SB Pro PE/Release/SBProPEcm.exe and set it to "Run as administrator." If i launch SB, i get a couple of errors: - could not read palette file "CustomColorPalette.bmp" -> press OK - could not read palette file "RandomColorPalette.bmp" -> press OK - could not read palette file "RandomColorPalette_ISO.bmp" -> press OK And then it just close back to desktop. How can i fix these errors? This download is the same i used previously and SB ran fine with it (till last night) Regards, Falconeer
  17. If I may quote from the manual: For vehicles with semi combustible ammunition castings (all tanks equipped with a 120mm smoothbore cannon) the standard procedure is not to unload loaded ammunition, but to fire whatever is loaded before changing to the other ammunition type with the next loading procedure. That's why the commander calls: Fire, Fire HEAT! (First Fire call is to fire whatever is inside the barrel, second Fire is what he wants to be loaded next) It's possible however, like MDF mentioned, to override as the commander and order to reload
  18. I did try to search for more up north, after friendly forces didn't report enemy vehicles and infantry, after a while. However, I couldn't find anything... I will try again later tonight and try as suggested above.
  19. No, it ends after a period, iirc 1 hour
  20. Hello, I have a question about this scenario. I recently downloaded it, because I wanted to play some t-72 scenarios. But every time, I'm getting awarded with a "major defeat" in the end and I don't know exactly why. All of my tanks survive and most of my pc's too. It's mostly my infantry which get thinned out a little, but most of them survive :c: Question is, what am I doing wrong in this scenario? Was hoping that someone could enlight me a bit
  21. I actually felt sorry for this guy :c: http://i214.photobucket.com/albums/cc212/Falconf16/SS_21_02_19_zps55a37d8b.jpg' alt='SS_21_02_19_zps55a37d8b.jpg'>
  22. Omg, it really worked, thanks a lot!! Regards, Falconeer

    Purchase issue

    Hello, i'm trying to purchase the v3 version from the eSim site. I have or I think I have filled in everything correctly, but I can't seen to get past the "Confirmation" part. I constantly get a Transaction declined message and a message :"Information entered incorrect. Try again." But I really don't know what i'm doing wrong... Anyone have a clue what i'm doing wrong here? btw, trying to buy from the Netherlands via MasterCard. Regards, Falconeer
  24. Average time to kill 3 seconds? :eek2: My best is about 10-15 sec (but i'm relative new to SB Pro)
