  1. I am hoping so, maybe it is just a setting. I will help with reproducing what I see if it helps.
  2. Kingtiger - thank you, appreciated. Are there other SBPPE scenarios repositories that I can browse? Splash - thx! I see now there are newer schearios. Does anyone have any idea why the newer scenarios are not indexed up into the parent categories? I.e. from the easy and difficult categories into the parent single player category? or at least this does not seem to be done when indexing by last updated.
  3. Ssnake, yessir, and thanks for the reply. i completely understand and have been doing a bit of that. it is just not quite the same as a scenario created for Strv 122 in its native environment, if you will. i am also wondering about the (un)popularity of the vehicle itself in the general scheme of things SBPPE related, i.e. multiplayer events. also, are there generally no new scenarios being uploaded by folks?
  4. Hello all, I have searched the scenario database and there are not a lot of scenarios for the Strv 122. Is there any particular reason for that? Is it just not a popular vehicle? Also, nothing really new in single player since 2015 and multi player since 2016? Thx!
  5. Thx guys! Rotareneg, Thx for the help!
  6. Hello all, It has been a good long while since I posted or even perused the forums or thought about SB. Coming back because nothing else seems to satisfy the itch. Wow has a lot changed, a new release and new forum/community software. So a couple questions. 1. Is there a search function on the new forums? For the life of me I just could not find it. Perhaps I have become daft. Please help. 2. Is there a concise and complete list of playable vehicles in the sim? I found the 'newly added in this release' stuff, but no seemingly complete list. Thx!
  7. all you have to do is install the software on the new computer and move the dongle to the new computer. That is if you have a permanent license and therefore dongle. If you have the time limited license (monthly, tec.), you should probably go to the support forum and ask.
  8. agreed, point taken, and my offer is only old version and certainly not going to be long term. if I can help someone decide to buy the game I think it is a win for all, and who, after playing it a bit, can resist? last thing I want to do is torpedo a new sale.
  9. I am also in a situation where I can loan 2.654 licenses. that should be more than good enough for someone to try out the game and decide they want to buy it. no strings, willing to help! PM works to contact me.
  10. too funny! but I did really do a search on the thread. I wonder if google might find something where the forum software does not? ugh, no not really. so either I was the first to post (not very likely at all) or google does not crawl the forums.
  11. seconded - or at least seconded for this particular request number for this vehicle! same deal though - I searched and I am SURE they are here and they did not show up in my search: playable T80's and T90's.
  12. hey, those make good 'gas fireplaces' in the winter. we did not mind it at all.
  13. just a small group of people that have been playing together a long time. pretty relaxed group for the most part, we play a gamut of games. http://www.rlgaming.com
  14. MDF, Thx for this. I have copied and pasted into our forums for myself (getting back into SBPPE) and a couple of new guys getting interested. great way to start off.
  15. I am going to say it is both more difficult and easier in the game. what a conundrum! it is easier because there are tools in the planning phase to analyze the terrain quite well. the LOS tool and just plain old 3D to take a look around. you get to pick a spot on the map and just pop in. in RL, you have to go there to do the same analysis. this is intrinsically more difficult, you have to walk, drive, and spend the time. i did many 'terrain walks' in the cold war period to analyze terrain vs. battle plans, revise said battle plans, confirm said battle plans, etc. it does take quite some amount of time to do. but there is nothing like boots on the ground. period. it also takes some amount of experience to analyze the terrain vs your units capabilities vs the mission at hand. the good news with SBPPE and such is you get to learn without any risk of loss of life. and it does equate to RL at some level. that is why it is a good training tool not only for armored crewman, but lower level command staff as well. i say lower level because of the sheer number of objects that would be required to put a division, or even a brigade, in a scenario. it would probably kill most if not all computers. plus the higher up you go the more support capabilities are present at those levels - also somewhat of a challenge to emulate. my guess is GibsonM will have more insight as to the level of command this 'game' is useful at, and others may as well. hope this helps and i am not too far off, these are my observations.
