  1. I'm not much of a computer guy. I have an i7-10700KF CPU @380GHz, 16 RAM, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER (single monitor). This is just a Dell computer. I have this very same issue with this latest update and probably with at least the previous two updates. I just keep it in windowed mode and manually adjust the screen to fit my monitor. Just to let you know your not the only one, for what it's worth.
  2. I was playing a scenario where a wheeled armored vehicle, I think a centauro, was stuck in a small water filled depression. There was no damage to the centauro. I couldn't maneuver it out. Tried to tow it with a Leopard. I couldn't get it to hook up. I've used the tow feature before. So my question is: Can you tow an undamaged vehicle? If you are a tank commander and you spot a building at some distance and you suspect it may be occupied by the enemy, can you order your AI gunner to put a HE round in it if no enemy has been spotted in it? (and maybe there is no enemy in it.) Will he do it? I've tried using the "priority" TRPs, but the waiting time for splash is 2min 49sec just like the regular call for fire. I'm I missing something, overlooking something in the manual?

    Drone documentation

    Thanks for taking the time to reply. I have things working properly. A large part of my problem was my joystick. I just realized that the labelle could be controlled with the joystick as well as the W, A, D, X key imputes. My joystick was setting unevenly on my desk and overriding the W, A, D and X imputes I was trying to make.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Now I don't feel so bad.

    Drone documentation

    How are the drones working for everyone? I thought the easiest to try would be the labelle. I can deploy it and launch it, but I can't get it to go where I want, not on auto or manually flown. I really can't get it to do much but hover. I've read all available documentation and watched all videos. The only consistent thing is the flashing "TIS cooling down (5:00)". If everyone else is doing OK, I must be doing something in the incorrect order.

    I'll figure it out. Thanks.
  7. Where can I find drone "how to" documentation?
  8. I know some others have had this issue before but the solutions offered at that time don't seem to apply to me. I would like to know if anyone else is having this problem. I've had this issue with at least the last 2 or 3 versions of SB. I would like to run SB at 1920 X 1200 in full screen. I can run SB well in Windowed Mode with the window manually set as high as 1916 X 1166 just by expanding the window with the mouse pointer. But if I go to Main Menu/Options/Display and change to Full Screen Mode, select the desired resolution (I've tried several) and select “OK” the game freezes at the Display screen window. It does change to “Full Screen” mode and the screen resolution does change but the "Display" window is frozen. The mouse pointer still moves but clicking on “OK” or “Cancel” does nothing. So I try to quit the program by going to the Task Manager. I can get to the task manager with control, alt, delete but when I click the “Task Manager” button the screen goes directly back to the frozen SB "Display" screen. I have to restart the computer with the button on the tower. I've got a Dell computer only two years old, plenty powerful with plenty of RAM and good graphics card. Not a lot has been added to this computer mainly "Zoom" and "winrar". Any suggestions. This is not a big issue now but may be in the future if I want to lower the screen resolution for a future SB upgrade.
  9. In a single player scenario, if I were to give the red forces fire support artillery etc and a UAV , plotting a route for the UAV, would the red AI use the UAV to call in fire missions on blue forces? In 4.3 will AI red forces use the new Swingblade, and Dragonfly systems in single player scenarios if so equipped. Thanks

    Thanks for the help. This works fine. I had read all of the pertinent information before my original post. I have no idea what I was doing wrong. I would like to take the opportunity to thank the developers for such an interesting sim. I've had "Steel Beasts" on one computer or another for about the last 20 years. I think I've owned every product and update you've put out. It's a relaxing way to spend a few hours in the evening.

    Is the micro-UAV working the way it is supposed to? I've never used it before and can't get it to work. I can't get it to deploy with "Shift + T". If it's working properly for everyone else, I'll figure it out. Thanks.

    Printing Controls

    How do I print out the list of "Controls" from the "Main Menu"? I can't seem to export the list to anything that is helpful. Thanks.
  13. If I remember correctly, when I made scenarios with previous editions of SB, I could change all of the vehicles in a scenario from one type to another with a single click, changing all of the M1s into M1A2s easily. Is that correct? I don't see a way to do it now with 4.167. Thanks in advance.

    No voices

    My sincerest apologies for wasting your time. The problem is with my speakers or the connection between my speakers and the computer. Mechanical sounds and even music sounds pretty normal. Human speech cannot be understood and in most cases cannot be heard. I discovered this by going to Youtube. I'm sure it is not SB. Again sorry for the false alarm. I should be able to fix this problem myself. Thanks. Great simulation.

    This might actually be a sound card problem. Please don't go through any more trouble until I speak with Dell. I will get back to you one way or the other.
