  1. 1st thing is to try is to install the legacy maps pack on the esim downloads page if you have not already. Then try again. If that doesn't work, volcano wrote up the directions below.
  2. Can you attach the scenario? Thanks!

  4. 4.162 is now available for download, please scroll down past the map installer and explanations. https://www.esimgames.com/?page_id=1607 Issuing a patch was not an option in this case, so please uninstall the previous version and use the full installer.
  5. Please remove the riva afterburner plugin and see if that helps.

    New map UID

    Please follow the guide here, I should not have posted these as is. If the base map does not come with steel beasts, then that folder needs to be zipped up and posted, and if there is a delta map, it needs to be zipped up and posted as well. If you attach the scenario, I can test to make sure it all works, just leave me a PM telling me not to publish the scenario part yet. Once I get it all processed, your tester should just have to hit the download button when they open the scenario.
  7. Hi, Ive already contacted the author of the scenario, and asked him to post the map. Stay tuned!
  8. The 4.161 patch, full installer, and updated release notes have been posted to the downloads area: https://www.esimgames.com/?page_id=1607
  9. Version 1.0.0


    This is a updated ScaniaSE map. To download this map, enter ac29cdfa-a24d-4f61-a5ed-0885e3332a95 as the map package into the steel beasts map tools UI. Note: This map was provided by ssnake.

    Error code: EX126

    Can you remember when this started? I'm looking into this.
  11. I would start over. Uninstall everything. Follow the order on the downloads page: https://www.esimgames.com/?page_id=1607 Run maps installer. Pay attention to the folder you choose to put the maps in. Download and run the additional maps installer. Download and run the maps tools installer. Download and install pro pe 4.159. It will ask where the maps are, it should have the right location pre selected. Download and install pro pe patch 4.160. The included scenarios should work fine with no modification, but running old scenarios aside from those will not work out of the box without doing a conversion. Link below on that process.
  12. Hi all, The 4.160 patch and updated release notes are available here: https://www.esimgames.com/?page_id=1607
  13. In general, do not use whacky characters in any windows file or path. A lot of them have special meanings to software, and can lead to unpredictable results, even if windows will let you do it.

    Trouble posting

    I can't see anything wrong at first glance. What is the exact error message? Thanks!
  15. Please send a email to shipping. Tell them I said to mail you a map stick and give your address. No need to buy anything else.
  16. Please send ssnake a email with your order id. No one should have to do a offline activation to get it to work. IE and chrome should work with no hassle.
  17. Try installing the newest codemeter runtime from the codemeter website, sb should work after that is installed.

    4.159 Posted

    Current plan is to use the downloads area as the browser for user submitted maps. Users will hopefully submit some screenshots and create some text...

    4.159 Posted

    No. Please dont start over from scratch! Apply the patch and you are good to go.
  20. See the sticky in the maps thread for more detail on how we will handle user submitted maps. The maps downloader is not a map browser, but does download the maps one at a time, provided that: 1. You know the package id OR 2. Steel Beasts needs it.

    4.159 Posted

    The multipart map installer is still the same.
  22. The 4.159 patch is now available, along with an updated maps downloader and an optional legacy maps installer. Updated release notes are posted as well. https://www.esimgames.com/?page_id=1607
  23. If you have a brand new "Base" map, or a "Delta" map based on an existing base map, read below on how public distribution of your 4.1+ map submission will be handled. Submitting Maps: 1. Zip or RAR the folder containing your map package. If it is a delta map, then Zip/RAR the appropriate delta map folder inside the base map's "deltas" folder. If it is a new base map (ie. if its a completely new height map), then Zip/RAR the base map folder. The path will be different based on where you chose to put the maps when you ran the maps installer. 2. Submit the file to the "maps" area in downloads. Please provide a description and a few screenshots of your map. 3. We will prepare your maps for distribution, this will create a package unique ID (UID) for the map. We will upload the file to a public maps repository that the Steel Beasts Maps Download Manager service and Steel Beasts know how to use. At that point we will delete the Zip/RAR file from steelbeasts.com, and update the text of your description to include the UID of the map package for manual downloading (see below). Downloading Maps: (manually) [see image above] To get the map package manually, users will open the Steel Beasts Maps Download Manager, left click on "Add download" (pink circle), and paste in the UID provided in the map's info on SB.com and press OK. If connected (green circle) the download manager will then search the servers for the map, and if found it will download and automatically extract it to the path where you maps are installed. Also, if you are downloading a DELTA map, and your are also missing the BASE map, and if the base map is also present on the servers, then it will automatically get that as well. (automatically) Alternatively, you can get the map package automatically by simply loading a scenario in Steel Beasts that uses the map. If connected to the servers, and the map is present on the servers, then it will ask you if you want to download it while inside Steel Beasts.
  24. If that location agrees with what Options-> File Paths has for the map location then it should be ok in theory. Try running the included missions before trying to download old scenarios. If the mission was not edited and set up for 4.1, it won't work without editing. There is a tutorial here:
