    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.

    Drone documentation

    I'll figure it out. Thanks.
  5. Where can I find drone "how to" documentation?
  6. 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.
  7. 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

    Micro-UAV

    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.

    Micro-UAV

    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.
  11. 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.

    No voices

    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.
  17. 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
  20. 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.

    SSD

    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
  23. 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'."
  24. Sorry, I was not clear. The "Print report" under "File" when the scenario is opened.
  25. 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?
