  1. Thanks for the reply and the advice Ssnake!
  2. Thanks for the reply! I've already tried moving in column and that didn't work. I figured the following tanks would pick the same route through as the lead but I guess not. I will try setting the platoon's speed to slow and see if that works. And I'll try to catch one of the tutorials sometime. I'm a fireman ad work 24 hours shifts so I'll have to find one that's not on my work day. And I've been sitting in the gunners seat when a tree catches the end of the tube and spins the turret around and fills it with smoke!😂🤣 "The Himalayas" at Hohenfels was a route well used by us Opfor guys!😂
  3. Not sure which topic I should post this in...but I'm having issues with moving a platoon-sized element through the woods. So I'm playing the Camp Hornfelt missions and on the counterattack mission, I follow the route to get on the enemy's flank or rear. Eventually, I have to move through the trees. It never fails...the lead tank makes it through the woods, and when I look back the rest of the platoon is stuck on trees just moving slightly back and forth. Not sure why the driver of the lead is able to pick a route through, but the rest can't. It kind of makes it hard to pull off a counterattack into the enemy's flank with only 1 vehicle, while the other three just sit there stuck on trees. I've searched the forum but haven't been able to find anything on this topic. Thanks for any help!!
  4. Gotcha! I'll have to give the manual a read and complete all of the other tutorials! Have to say I'm loving it so far!
  5. Okay...disregard my last. I got it. Had to copy the seven files and then pasted them into the My Scenario Windows folder of Steel Beast. I was trying to put them in the My Scenario folder in the actual game. LOL. Thanks for the help!
  6. Thanks for the reply Grenny...but I'm still unsure as to what to do with the file. I understand that they run in the "Offline Sessions" section, but I don't know how to get the seven scenarios from the folder on my desktop to the "My Scenario" folder in Steel Beasts. Not sure if that makes sense?
  7. Seasons Greetings Everyone! My name is Wes and I just recently downloaded a 1-month subscription to SB ProPE. Just a little about myself...I am a former 19Kilo M1 tank crewman from the early 1990s. I trained on M1's and M1 IP's at Fort Knox in the fall of 1990. After Basic and Armor School I was sent to the OPFOR at Hohenfels, Germany. Spent 2 years there but we used M60A3's to replicate T72's. I spent a lot of time in the field training the BlueFor. I got out of the Regular Army in January 1993 and joined a Cavalry unit in the National Guard. Spent 9 years total between active and guard service. I am extremely familiar with armor simulations...grew up playing M1 Tank Platoon, then UCOFT and SIMNET in the Army, then played M1 Tank Platoon 2 for years when that came out in the late '90s. So that's my background...hope that wasn't too long-winded. So on to my questions. I have completed all of the tutorials for the M1A1, played a lot of Tank Range, and the Chinese Farm Battle in the Sinai. I downloaded the Camp Hornfelt file but I have absolutely no idea what to do with it. When I click on the folder I created for it, it opens a "How do you want to open this file?" menu. I have a feeling its a zip file and needs to be unzipped but I'm not sure how to go about this? Sorry for being such a newbie to this...I just struggle with modern Windows file management. So if possible could I get step by step instructions? I've tried searching the forum but couldn't find anything that seemed to help. Thanks in advance for any help!!
