Jartsev's post in Arty in Mission Editor-Test Mode only has a 5 second count and then activates. was marked as the answer
If you are calling arty from map view while in a test mode, you are essentially using instructor's functionality. E.g. fire mission would be executed immediately and disregarding of ammo availability.
If you need to use arty in normal way without turning off test mode, please use 'Support' drop-down menu.
Jartsev's post in BTR-82 and 82A need boresighting. was marked as the answer
Sorry, but I'm unable to reproduce with wind speed set to 0 and gun dispersion disabled. And 4 mils point of impact deviation implies either wind or dispersion effects(lead scale marks have estimated 5 mils separation). Also note that sight does not compensate for parallax and drift.
Jartsev's post in T-72B3 turret traversing speed was marked as the answer
First of all, T-72B3 uses more or less the same 2E42 series stabilizer, modified for compatibility with new FCS, and and if you take '184.TO-1'(e.g. an official 1st edition of technical description manual for T-72B3) and look at stabilizer specs listed there, you would see them unchanged since T-72B. E.g. per manual AZ slew speed is '24 degrees per second, no less than' and this is what is in SB. This is what any T-72B3 had, has and will have in foreseeable future.
Then, there is a very interesting question, with answer not defined in tech description and operations manuals for T-72B3, as well as in various crew training methodology handbooks, but very well described in manuals for BMP-3, T-72B, T-90, T-80U- what happens with traverse rates, if guided missile round is loaded or fired? There happens a traverse rate reduction by factor of two... And we can expect more or less same behavior from T-72B3.
Now let's see, what happens in SB, if you are trying to start up a T-72B3 in Steel Beasts. FCS defaults itself to guided missile round, and your traverse rate would be reduced until you load something else.
Jartsev's post in T-72M1 LRF Range Gates reversed. was marked as the answer
As far as I can see in v4.3XX, behavior of СТРОБ switch ('1200/1800' switch) matches description in vehicle and 1A40 FCS manuals, e.g. if switch is set to '1200' returns less than 1200meters are rejected , and if set to '1800'- returns less than 1800meters are rejected. BTW, this logic is described in briefing for tutorial scenario covering LRF of T-72.
May be our wiki article needs to be updated; I need to check that, because it might contain description of original incorrect behavior, which was fixed in v.4.0 or 4.1...
SB Wiki article fixed.

Yep, known issue... Hopefully will be fixed at some point.

Jartsev's post in Gigabytes of log files in version 4.267 was marked as the answer
Yes, you can delete those files. But at this point there is no certain setting option, which would prevent collection of logs... And obviously, if for some reason if you are running SB in debug mode(with command line parameter '--loglevel=TRACE') on regular basis, then logfiles will contain more data and will take more disc space.

This is known general problem with machine guns; unfortunately appears to be not quite trivial to fix.
Jartsev's post in Trouble with downloading was marked as the answer
Did you activated the new license? It doesn't get activated automatically just by the fact of purchase. Also please note, that license must be activated only after installing SB and CodeMeter user runtime(comes with SB installer); here is a tutorial video with walk-through:
Jartsev's post in Issue with Maps was marked as the answer
It is hard to say what exactly went wrong in your case, and I'd prefer not to make guesses here. Still you need to address the situation somehow and I'll suggest to check if maps folder from your previous installation is still somewhere else on your computer(e.g. on other drive, for example), unless you always utilized default location C:\ProgramData\eSim Games\Steel Beasts\maps.
If there is an old folder found somewhere, you can define it as a new file path for maps:
1) Make sure that it contains 'Default' map package; if not- copy-paste it there, since SB would not run without it.
2) Launch SB as administrator (right click on shortcut> More...>Run as Administrator)
3) In the Main Menu pick 'Options', then 'File paths' and check what address is listed there; probably it would be C:\ProgramData\eSim Games\Steel Beasts\maps
4) Change location of map package folder by left-clicking 'Map Package Folder' line- dialog will pop-up, navigate to required folder and confirm your selection by clicking 'Select' button
If there no such old folder found for whatever reason, I'll suggest to re-install everything starting with SB Maps first, then SB Pro PE itself, and Map tools as a final touch. Running maps installer when everything else is already done was causing issues to some people in the past, so complete re-installation is a very time-consumable, but probably a safer option.
It is also worth to keep in mind, that optional Legacy Maps Installer places pre-4.1 maps only to C:\ProgramData\eSim Games\Steel Beasts\maps.

Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org; it is possible to replace broken CodeMeter stick (for a fee). Also it makes sense to run CmDust diagnostic utility and attach resulting log file to your email to sales, but please DO NOT post this log here, since it contain sensitive data.
Jartsev's post in Windows Reinstall was marked as the answer
Hello. If you have a Classic License, then it would not be affected by re-installation of Windows, since license is stored on USB key and is not bound to your computer's hardware or operating system copy. After re-installing Windows you would need to install SB Pro PE and a CodeMeter runtime (it is is included to SB installer anyway).
