  1. Interesting, thx ! (but above my skills & timebudget)
  2. Well in the book it’s desert 🌵 (“The Valley of Tears”). Given Antal’s function at the NTC at that time (XO, 1st Bat, 63rd Armor - OPFOR) I was hoping it’d be a real location @ NTC. I suspect more and more however, that it’s a fictional location, as I can’t recognise those hills on the NTC-map. Checking the other maps now, for an alternative. Golan is a 1st possibility.
  3. Nice to play - if you're into SP: Introduction to various Russian kit Size of the map is well suited for SP (= not too large) Number of Blue units to handle: not too large & partly even scripted Tactically stil a challenge: be cautious ...
    Fully agree with Kondor999's remarks: very varied mission, showing a lot of Russian kit -> fun
  4. Yes, a wadi But I can’t pinpoint this terrain on the NTC -map =>Looking for alternative solutions Thx all Best, K
  5. Not sure if I can answer your question, but what is the name of the map ?
  6. Hi MO MO, If there were to be an update and you could not find a way to pay for it, contact me: let’s see if somehow the payment could come via me - or not. No promises, but we could try. Best ! Koen
  7. Hi, Planning to buy a secondary licence for father/son/daughter games, but unsure if I can install this home LAN (checking), so might have to to share the license over the internet with my children => Question pls: how could this go wrong ? Where is the risk Thx !
  8. Aha, that would be quite possible 💡, as I see now that Antal was XO, 1st Bat, 63rd Armor (OPFOR) when he wrote “Armor Attacks” !! 😎 thx
  9. Hi, Any idea’s for a map that resembles the terrain in the picture below ? It’s from a John Antal book. I’ll check the mapslibrary myself, but if by chance anyone has inspiration that would be helpful, THX !
    Fully agree, Magnum50 ! (and thx for your review, it helped me discover this little gem !)
  10. Recommended playing: Good size of a map for SP: 7x7 km Not too high number of units for SP Very much appreciated: all Blue units have preprogrammed routes => you can concentrate on playing the units & less need to be in the map managing from there => varied gameplay: you can fire Javelins, be a forward observer, play with the tanks, or SAM, there are mortars also, etc ... British units, which are in general less used (SP), so refreshing + seems to be a realistic ORBAT (hmm, I'm not an expert here) Classic but OK mission: def

  11. Maps: I get a bit lost with them these days 😉 Seriously, thx for the help, I’m learning ...
  12. So, I updated this older scenario from pre-2006 (!) to SB Pro PE 4.259. Incredible that such an old scenario still works well in today's SB ! And IMHO it's still an exciting scenario ! Not thx to me - but simply bcs it's based on the book of John Antal: "Armor Attacks - The Tank Platoon" !! Uploaded now (pending approval of a moderator) Last question pls: In the Zipfile of the scenario I also added the MAPS: a) package "AA-CROMPTONRI": this package a TER file (actually twice & identical, strangely enough) and an LNT file and a

    Lieutenant, * You're in command of a Leo-tankplatoon, on a counterrecon mission. * This scenario is based upon the great book of John F. Antal : "Armor Attacks - The Tank Platoon". -> As in the book you will be required to make several tactical decisions ... -> Stealth & observing may be more important in this mission than shooting. * The Red briefing contains a debriefing of the mission, which will help you understand afterwards what this was all about - Don't read it before you finished your mission (contains spoliers) * Appr. 30 - 60 min. * v.

    ReShade ?

    Is anyone still using ReShade ? And does it still work well ? Asking given the problems that made Japo32 uninstall ReShade ... https://www.steelbeasts.com/topic/13252-where-are-my-beautiful-particles-reshade-is-the-culprit-resolved/?tab=comments#comment-214421 How it looks:
  15. I proceded with the 2nd option and simply extracted the map. => That works ! Now I have: * a Package with a TER and LNT file (both called "AA-CROMPTONRI") * a HGT file (called CROMPTONRI) Doesn't matter that I'm a bit confused - maps are complex. THX for your help !
  16. Hi, Converting an old SB1-scenario with legacy AA-CROMPTONRI.ter & CROMPTONRI.raw. I did find on my computer CROMPTONRI.raw - but NOT AA-CROMPTONRI.ter (search full PC + see screenshot 2) So I skipped option 1: locate the map & convert it into a map package Instead I went for the 2nd option: extract the map. The Map Extraction Wizard however mentions: "AA-CROMPTONRI.ter. Embedded terrain map exists !" Map Extraction Wizard also strongly recommends the original TER (see screenshot 3) -> What a
  17. Hi, I'd like to unzip this older SB1-scenario of mine, to upgrade it to SB Pro PE. Question pls: which UNZIP-program is trustworthy ? Plenty of "free" unzip-programs available in the Microsoft Store, but free does not exist ... Thx !
  18. Thank you all for the good tips. Indeed it works ... if the charger cable IS plugged in 😵 + 60 FPS (sometimes + 40 FPS). BUT if the charger cable is NOT plugged in, it will not use the discrete GPU ... back to 15 FPS ... So same as for you, Scrapper_511, HP Support Community confirms your advice, stormrider_sp: Solved: Re: FPS Drops when switching to battery - HP Support Community - 7701264 All laptops will only game at half or less their rating when on battery only. This is absolutely normal. They do this to co
  19. Mysterious: * WIN 10: I linked SB to Nvidia RTX * Nvidia Panel: I linked SB to Nvidia RTX (and restarted) * Task Manager: shows that SB runs on GPU-0, that is Nvidia RTX * but I have 15 FPS What would be the reason ? Am I doing something monumentally stupid ? (I can upload pics)
