    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.
  4. 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.

    No voices

    I've tried all the English languages and German. Went to: Documents\eSim Games\Steel Beasts\mods\sounds. In 'sounds', there are two folders. First is 'FX' containing a file named 'FXList-4_167', it contains hundreds of wav files. The second file in 'sounds" is 'voices'. Voices contains a folder for each language listed in SB. Every folder is empty. Also in 'voices' is a file called 'VoiceList'. It contains a long list of wav files.

    No voices

    New computer yesterday. Windows 10. Updated the Codemeter. Downloaded and installed the Map Packages from esim. Downloaded and installed 4.167 from esim. Everything seems OK except there are no voices. All other sound effects seem to be present but no voices in any language. So I uninstalled. Re-downloaded from esim. Turned off McAffee fire wall. Reinstalled. Still no voices. This is at least the third computer on which I have had this sim and this is the first problem I've had. I've considered installing 4.162 and then the 4.167 patch but I don't know where to get 4.162. Suggestions would be appreciated.
  10. I'm running 4.010. Thanks for all the hard work. I can't seem to get my UGV or UAV to deploy. I've assigned them to my infantry units in the editor. Tried 'y' and 'shift-t' as instructed in the control panel of the game, also 'Z' as instructed in the manual, after trying both F7 and F11 to put me in the commander's position, with no luck. Any help would be appreciated.

    CD question

    I realize they are on back order. I was just willing to pay for everything at once and thought it just might be an error on the purchase site. No big deal.

    CD question

    I'm ready to download 3.0 and I would like to order a CD at the same time. I don't care if I have to wait a few months for the CD. But the esim store won't let me do that. Why not? Thanks
  13. Thanks for the upgrade! I noticed that when in the operator position of the javelin missile team, I cannot control which target is selected. Am I not doing something correctly? (I also noticed this in the previous version.) Also I noticed that the BTR80s do not burn or smoke when destroyed.

    v2.640 Bugs

    I noticed while playing a scenario (and rechecked with a specially designed scenario) that the t-80u can fire the songster or refleks missile accurately while on the move, even while moving at top speed perpendicular to the line of fire. Is this correct? This might be a false alarm but I was under the impression that with most AT missiles that the firing platform had to remain relatively stationary.

    I'm considering installing an SSD in my Dell desktop. Could someone please tell me what, if any, advantage it would give me in running SBpe. Thanks
  16. I’m also running windows 7 64bit and had to change the “state” of my Cmstick. The answer was on the Microsoft website: "You should switch the state of your CmStick from local disk to removable disk. You can change this with our tool “Code Meter Disc Configuration”. Start->All Programs->CodeMeter->Tools->Disc Configuration, then go to the rider “Option” and change the value 'Disk Type'."
  17. Sorry, I was not clear. The "Print report" under "File" when the scenario is opened.
  18. Thanks, but is that what the "Print report" button is referring to or is it referring to the briefing? Also, regarding the first part of my question is there a way to print the maps without going to windowed mode?
  19. Thanks for the quick reply. First, going to windowed mode worked. The program does not lock up and the maps are saved. (I assume they are in a format that will print, I don't have my printer hooked up right now.) I can live with going to windowed mode to print the maps but is there some adjustment I can make so that I can stay in full screen mode? Second, maybe I have misunderstood what the "Print report" button does. I assumed it would print the briefing for the scenario. If it does I'm getting a blank document. It just occurred to me that it may print the "report" referred to on the right of the window under the "DISPLAY" selector in which case there is never anything there. (What is that "report" selection there for anyway?) Thanks for the help.
  20. I'm having a related problem. I'm running win7 X64. When I open up a scenario and go under "File" and select "Print blank map", "Print displayed map" or "Print report" the program freezes. It doesn't crash. The window stays open and the computer doesn't freeze because I can still move the cursor but the buttons in the SB program no longer operate. I have to CTRL-ALT-DELETE out of the program. The task manager says that the program is not responding and I have to force quit. After I force quit there is a "Save the file as" widow that is saving an .xps document. If I name and save the document it doesn't show up where directed or anywhere else. I have no other problems running SB. I've had SB for quite a while, I've just never pushed one of those three buttons before. Any advice would be appreciated. (I have Adobe 9.1.2 on my computer if it makes a difference and I also have an xps file viewer. )
  21. I just made a copy of the Salisbury plain height map and renamed it. It seem to work.

    Dongle question.

    I had the same problem and found the answer on the Microsoft website: "You should switch the state of your CmStick from local disk to removable disk. You can change this with our tool “Code Meter Disc Configuration”. Start->All Programs->CodeMeter->Tools->Disc Configuration, then go to the rider “Option” and change the value 'Disk Type'."
  23. You've probably already noticed this but just in case you haven't: On the CV90/35 from either the commander's or the gunner's position, the right smoke discharger switch creates a smoke screen straight ahead, the center switch creates a screen to the left and the left switch creates a screen to the right. The TAB key creates a screen to the right.
  24. I'm looking at a new computer. Given roughly equal capabilities, is there any reason to choose an ATI or Nvidia graphics card, one over the other for SB Pro PE? Thanks!
  25. I get the same message. Maybe the height map required is not in 2.538.
