  1. I have tried using different output devices including a usb headset and still nothing?? I really cant work out what the issue is
  2. No luck still, I use a headset, the same headset ive used before with steel beasts just fine, Ive checked the drivers theyre okay, no issues there. I can hear audio on all other applications, just not steel beasts .

    No Audio

    Last time I played the game 8 months ago on steel beasts 4.2xx, I had no audio at all, I have updated the game to 4.379, and still cannot get any audio whatsoever, I have uninstalled and re-installed, and ensured that there weren't two destination paths etc, by deleting previous versions and files. Has anyone come across this issue??? regards tankdriver
    A really good mission I enjoyed it, very well scripted. The REDFOR was well balanced, and was appropriate with regards to equipment and ammo. The REDFOR had been placed in well picked ambush positions and did a good job of snagging my advance. I'm being really picky here... Personally I would've put in MCV Warriors, instead of ULAN's. However it was a breath of fresh air, playing with a 30mm digital FCS, stabilised and with thermals. So that's not a criticism. With regards to the UK ORBAT a TYPE 58 regimental style of squadron I feel would've fit better. So 3 Challenger Troops, with 3 vehicles each. Then a CO and XO. 4 Warriors/ Ulan Kept the same. A reconnaissance force of scimitars would've worked well here, no more than 4, half of a RECCE troop. I ended up using the CO challenger and an ULAN to act as recon. The 120mm mortar teams were my biggest criticism, if it was a NATO force and they were attached then fair enough. The only mortar in service now with the UK is the 81mm. I would've rather have had 6 tubes of off map 155mm. This would have traded more time for splash, to a harder hitting arty strike. I did like the fact that the care had been taken to fit the force with the correct ammo, so the challengers were sent out with L28A1, and the Infantry had NLAW LAT. So a big credit to apocalypse for that, I was expecting to see LMG teams with MG3's.

    US Army Combined Arms Scenario, Small 20 min scenario. A small force of US forces defend a small town on a river with combined arms forces.
  7. Version 1.0.0


    A Small 20 Minute Scenario. A small Challenger 2 Troop with attachments defend a village/town with a bridgehead from a Russian advance guard force with two companies of tanks (T-72B3) and BMP 3 platoons. Pre-prepared Fire positions, Russian Air Assault, Deadly Infantry Armed with javelin, 155mm multispectral smoke. Things are painful on both sides.... Any problems, don't hesitate to tell me. ( It has been a while since i've done one of these)
  8. Version 1.0.0


    This scenario is dedicated to my good friend Steel Beasts Cavalry aka. Cobra (base). This is a scenario that would follow on to one of my previous and best scenarios, "Gradual Retreat". This one took a while as I wanted to perfect this scenario, It is accurate, ammo types are accurate to the year as well as vehicles, (But just think that the army national guard are still operating the M901's). --- After the gradual retreat scenario, the Soviet forces over run the defensive line and are moving with a large force, but the time bought has been used for our rear forces to establish a 170 Km defensive line, this is last line of defence before the Soviet forces reach France. The rest of the British forces left in the UK are mobilsed and will be in France within the next 16 hours, along with a 4 hr transit time before the first brigade of Challenger 1's can arrive from 4 Royal Tank Regiment. They have been redeployed from the Gulf. US Forces in the area have organised a defensive strategy to reppel the soviet advance, however it is unclear as to whether it will work. 2 ACR is divided into sub groups within sectors, groups 1-8 are defending Alpha section (North), whilst 9-18 are defending Bravo section (South). Each group holds a 10km wide gap, Alpha section stretches 80 Km, leaving bravo section with 90 Km. This 170 Km line is to protect France and Belguim, however France is under threat the most. 3 Group, 2 ACR's forward elements are expected to make contact with scouting elements from the first echelon of a detachment from a Guards divison, the 5th Motorised Infantry Regiment. "2-6/A. Contact BRDM 2 platoon, moving East Grid square 20, 53."...
  9. Version 1.0.0


    USSR forces have penetrated deep into the heartland of Germany, losses are high on both sides, its a race to see who runs out of weapons, men and ammo last. The NATO side have an armoured brigade inbound from the US in the next four days but it will mean a loss of the war if they do not reach Germany soon. The Bundeswehr are at a point where they won't surrender ground, and will fight to the death to defend their country. We must stop a Soviet advance at Alfeld, this should halt the central sector if the bridges across the river Leine are destroyed, these are the only ones in the area that can support heavy loads. It is our job to destroy the enemy's main echelon as much as possible, whilst doing a tactical retreat to the left side of the Leine, and FASCAM the bridges... This is what is supposed to happen. (Didn't in the Book) --------- In the book, this was an unorganised defence from the UK's "3 RTR (3rd Royal Tank Regiment)", US Armoured Cav units, and the German Bundeswehr. Challenger 1's were engaging in the streets of Alfeld, the Bundeswehr were wiped out, the US actually had the sense to pull out, and put bradley's on the ridge behind the river, but a T-72/ T-80 Coy crossed the bridges before they were destroyed and killed the US forces. Don't let this happen...

  11. Version 1.0.0


    30 Mins ago UKLF and US 11th ACR made contact with the forward echelon of the main force of the 4th Guards Regiment of the DPRK. The Kings Royal Hussars of the UKLF and 11th ACR had been assisted by USMC, M1A1 HA's and M113 APC's, along side Cobra Helos and Chinooks. 2 PARA have airdropped in the AO 2 hours ago and are mounted on GTK Boxers. We are about to make contact with the full force of the Guards Regiment, We must make sure that they do not cross DL Delta or they will destroy the nuclear reactor just south of DL Delta, heat will cause a fission reaction and dump radioactive air into the atmosphere, POISONING SEOUL AND SOUTH KOREA! It is our job to hold back the enemy until they have stopped attacking, it will be difficult... DO NOT LET THEM CROSS DL DELTA. ------ Notes: I hope this scenario scares you... at times you WILL think wha the hell am I supposed to do. But then think about if this was real life, with everthing going on around you in that battlefield. Enjoy! Last one of the series, its been a blast!
  12. Version 1.0.0


    The title speaks for itself... Your Stationed at Sailsbury plane... then the worst happens! This scenario should scare you and HM Government.
  13. Version 1.0.0


    This is the third mission to the series. We see the the contact with the first bulf of the main armoured force. We have a defensive line set up near defense line Charlie, with TOW units, ITV's and FISTV's. The worst part is that there is an imminant attack... The good news however, its stopped raining. USMC will arrive however ETA unknown. 1 PARA will airdrop 2 GTK Boxer Troops as a response shock force. Cobras are inbound, 3 mins ETA. Notes: The Routes are randomised... Again no voices, sorry. Any problems send me a msg.
  14. Version 1.0.0


    This is the second mission in the Operation white scorpion series. This is large contact with advance guard. DPRK forces will attack in a soviet 1980's style way. Do not let the enemy pass DL Delta or you loose the game. The Bulk of enemy forces will come in Missions 3 and 4. But hold the line for now. Good Luck.
