  1. Greetings all, Long time no speak. Something of interest here but may not be the issue. This is an advisory for everyone to check the "Device Manager"/ Network Adapters/ Properties/ Power management settings. It seems that one of the last updates from Microsoft may have "reset" the power management for what-ever adapter you have to: "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" and additionally enabled the "allow this device to wake the computer" Both items that if your not running a laptop on battery power alone you do not need enabled, and runs the risk of turning off the de
  2. Greetings all, Ref. to Hank; Select the "start" icon in the lower left corner and either in the search box or the "run" command, type "dxdiag" (without the quotes). That will bring up a set of window tabs, select the "display" tab and your video card and spec's will be listed on the left side, the current drivers will be listed on the right. Hope that helps.

  3. Greetings, It's not limited. 1. Run cmd.exe 2. Click on the icon in the upper left hand of the screen. 3. Select Properties 4. Select the Layout tab 5. Set the buffer and window widths to whatever you like. 6. Click OK 7. Select Save Properties for future... 8. Click OK. Some references: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/319305/why-is-the-windows-cmd-exe-limited-to-80-characters-wide And it's probablly left over from the DOS days where CRT displays were 80 characters wide.

Greetings all, To Hedgehog, Your graphics drivers are 6 years out of date, theres new drivers out. see here. http://www.nvidia.com/object/win7-winvista-32bit-285.62-whql-driver.html But you didn't list what operating system your running so the link is for win 7 32bit. version: 285.62 (WHQL) date: 2011 10 24 Op system: Win7,Win Vista, 32Bit English Size: 107Mb (Win XP.

  5. Greetings all, Start off, thanks for this excellent addition/upgrade to the entire Steel Beasts ProPe series. Have noticed some unusual behaviour on the AGL reloading of the Piranha 3C, main ammo was RWM 40mm x53Hl @500rds with second ammo set as M430 HEDP @500rds. Fired off some starting RWM then selected to change to the M430 type, went to F8 view and the ammo was being completely loaded as single rounds. Entire loading cycle sound completed and only one round loaded then loading started again. (again only one round) Should the ammo box not just be changed out, as it's a belt fed gun? Testin
  6. Greetings all, The ATGM is normally the max range first choice round for the 125mm. With a range of 4000 to 5000 mtrs, (9M119 Svir/Reflecks Missiles) HEAT; (9M119M1 Reflecks-M Missile) HEAT-T, it was the only engagement round that would match the NATO ranges. [ AT-11 Sniper ] And it did not damage the tube, it did require a "pusher" launch back plate to get it out the barrel but was rocket driven from there. Normal tank reloads are 3. Notes: This is an improved gun-fired ATGM designed for later Russian tanks. There are three types of Sniper missiles: the 9M119 Svir, fired by the T-72B, T-72S,
  7. Greetings all, Another note on observed items within that new map. I don't seem to remember ever seeing vehicles or their icons called " 11th 1" (cross country carrier) or "10th 1"(ambulance). Is there a new naming protocol avail. for selecting call signs? Or do we now get individual named and displayed call signs. Later, 9erRed
  8. Greetings all, Just looking at the nice map and an interesting set of symbols, there are 3 self propelled Arty groups tagging along behind the "Sabre" elements. Is this an indication that there are elements now availiable instead of just placeholders? Just an observation, Later, 9erRed
  9. Greetings all, Ref the "How far away is too far" for arty adjustment: IRL it would depend on the source of the fire and the quantity of tubes firing. (blast radius of 500mtrs for some ammo) The Arty already disperse the round impact locations to their guns so a distance of 1000mtrs may still fall within the "target" area depending on the original stated target size. ( Example of a company of dug in infantry with support) With SB Pro Pe, the FOO doing the shooting will need to keep in mind the original bearing the mission was sent with as all the corrections are taken from that reference, so a
  10. Greetings all, Ref. the placement of objects; As has been mentioned earlier I agree with a tool to group and space evenly, similar items as poles and lights. Allowing for the placement of these items in a quick and simple method. Currently it's a VERY tedious and time consuming process to lay out telephone and light poles. This new tool should be selectable and then allow the designer to grab the item they want to space and continue to place until completed. May even need to have input parameters on the spacing required. Additionally I'd like to see the available objects divided into sub categ
  11. Greetings all, Reference the Nvidia drivers, please specify the exact version from Aug. that you are referring to. Are you operating Win XP or Win 7, 32bit or 64bit. Series 200,300,400,500 card. As not all systems will experience the same results from the same drivers. The last drivers I have installed were the release date: 2011.08.09, version: 280.26 WHQL, OS: Windows 7, Windows Vista, file size: 100 MB Later, 9erRed
  12. Greetings, reference changing the "Y" axis of the joystick. After you start Steelbeasts Pro Pe press the "Ctrl + J" keys and that will invert the "Y" axis, and you should have the desired movement your looking for. It is listed as the 6th item down the list under "controls". All for now, 9erRed
  13. Greetings all, I have been going through the download categories to check on the latest uploads and if i want these items installed. But the format to display the newest items may not be optimized to the best method. I generally opt for displaying the items by date but the settings are displayed in "Month Day Year" which will mix all the items all the way back to 2006 year. Can the uploaded date format be changed to reflect the year first? Can the files be sorted to reflect if they are compatible with the latest version? (this may be a requirement of the initial file construction name or owner
  14. Greetings all, Ref the vehicles speeds, heres one of the past replys. http://www.steelbeasts.com/sbforums/showthread.php?t=5670&highlight=vehicle+speeds All for now. 9erRed
  15. Greetings all, Ref the shoot and scoot options: During the time period of most of the missions that are currently being played (80's time period), there was not an ability to rapidly "deploy" and "Set" the guns for a "rapid" shoot. It has only been in the last five(5) or so years that GPS positioning and linking the guns has advanced to the point that the guns can stop, precision align and shoot a rapid 3 round volly and then be on the move again. And only in the tracked elements. And all this has transpired because of, as has been stated earlier, "almost instant" radar and dopler tracking of
