  1. Looks nice, especially the manual. Does anybody know if a stand-alone purchase of the manual will be made available? If so, when and what is potential cost? If asked somewhere else, feel free to point me to the post. Thanks!
  2. Hello, great to see the map downloads available as preload and looking forward to Monday. Dumb question. Thought I had seen several posts refer to the fact the map files would be 30GB or so and that is why USB sticks were being offered. When I downloaded all the files today, my total was only around 13GB which is pretty small (comparatively to other games). Did I not download the right thing? Or was the 30GB referring to after the maps were installed versus the install files? Although I just did an install and the folder they installed to was only 13.5GB...so a little confused on the past 30GB statements. Thanks.
  3. Is there any ability to modify the font colors of the game? On my computer screen in all games, having RED font on BLACK background is very hard to read...and even having RED for some of the status messages in upper corner is difficult. Some of the messages that come up take a lot of effort to figure out because of this.
  4. Thanks for the responses. Yes, second profile would work but was just looking to see if alternate method but I am sure that will be fine....opening in editor is a possibility as well.
  5. Is there a way to play missions and such and not record the results in the user profile record screen? There are times I am just testing and messing around, which I would prefer not being counted against my official record. I know I could create a second profile but wanted to check if another way. Also, does anyone know which directory and file profiles saved in? Are they viewable outside the game or somehow hidden? thanks.
  6. Hello, Just wondering, are the custom scenarios (especially single player) created by the community usually hosted at this site under the "downloads" section or are there other popular sites where people host them as well?
  7. How long ago did you register? It seems early on before late Friday it might have worked, but since then not so much. So if you did it prior, then that is the difference then the rest of us.
  8. I am in a business that I deal with a ton of vendors who support our company's customers and even if they don't have active support people monitoring support lines/email, they all have automated monitoring systems checking for system faults and server errors and if they occur, they alert support personnel who are contacted to troubleshoot the issue even on the weekends. I realize in this particular case the product is a game/simulator that certainly isn't the same magnitude as financial systems, but I imagine their products are used for other business purposes that are more critical to customers so you would think they would have something in place to proactively identify issues. Of course this would assume that whatever the issue is can be trapped by monitors. At the end of the day not a huge deal to me because it is just entertainment, but I would be lying if I said I wasn't extremely excited to read about the release yesterday, but only to be disappointed to find out I couldn't ultimately register it to play. That is actually flattery for the game since I am very interested to give it a try:)
  9. Hello, weren't you having issues registering the product (saw you post in the issue thread)? Did you somehow get it working in order to see the new version?
  10. Did you recently just register your upgrade within the last 12 hours?
  11. Already tried all that including doing it manually and upgrading firmware No luck.
  12. One thing I noticed is that my link for the upgrade license is different than my link for my original purchase back in July. I know the license code would be different, but it is a different URL. For grins, I tried going to the old URL but using my new license code and the page came up that everyone else was seeing. However, when I attempted to register using that page, I still got an error but a different one. Maybe this error is more specific and provides better clues. Error: [10037] - Activation was not successful.(Error adding new product item HIP ProgrammingError (wibucmhip: CM 9009, Firm Security Box Access failed, Firm Security Box Entry 99:100146, ErrorCode9009).) This is the url of my original purchase: https://lc.codemeter.us/esim/ticket/<<insert actual license code>> This is the url of my upgrade purchase: https://lc.codemeter.us/esim/webdepot/get.php?id=<<insert actual license code>> I am NOT encouraging people to try the steps I am trying since I have no idea what it may do, but thought I would share my experiences in case it seems familiar to others.
  13. sorry, GMT-5....live in the Eastern time zone of the United States.
  14. I am also one of the unlucky folks having issues...just curious, has anyone been successful in upgrading their license since about midnight last night? It would be helpful to know if everyone is receiving this issue or just select people. Thanks.
  15. Tried this morning and still receiving the issue...hoping at somepoint this weekend things become workable.
  16. Always possible....not sure....I guess I will have to give up for the night...was really hoping to get some time with the software tonight....If it was a global issue, I would have thought more people would be complaining....oh well.
  17. I just realized my registration screen does not look like the one in the manual instructions....this is what I get when I select the link in my email. I wonder if this is part of the problem. Not sure how I get a different screen than others.
  18. When I try the offline method, I get the same error as using the online. An internal error has occurred. Please try again later. Error Code = 0x18080001
  19. Attempted to upgrade my license which is the permanent version, but receiving the following error when I try and activate. Starting activation. Generating license request. Getting license from server. Error: An internal error has occurred. Please try again later. Error Code = 0x18080001 1) I tried the manual method as well, but I received the exact same error message using that method. 2) I disabled my security software, no luck 3) I confirmed by browser supported Java/ActiveX 4) Restarted my computer 5) Uninstalled and reinstalled the game/license software multiple times 6) I upgraded my firmware on the stick, although it seemed pretty new since just got in July. At this point, I am out of ideas....does the support team have any ideas on how I can get this working? I am using Windows 8-64 bit and Internet Explorer 10...prior version of SB installed with no issues.
  20. Very nice....and appreciate the video introduction....keep them coming, can't wait until the upgrade comes out.
  21. Received dongle today, therefore I should be all set...thanks again for the demo use, it helped make the decision for me.
  22. Will new default missions be released with the update that take advantage of all the new features? Or will that be left up to the mission designers to do that after release?
  23. Thank you and I will certainly do so in order for other people to give it a try....I am hoping it arrives sometime this week.
  24. Well, I decided to make the purchase after all. Played the demo the last couple of days and really enjoyed it. Never got bored and often just enjoyed watching the action unfold. That is a sign of a simulator that has grabbed my attention, which are few and far between:) Thanks again to Gibson for the quick demo license, without that I would likely have never made the purchase. I look forward to really learning this sim and enjoying all the great missions that were created.
