  1. CavGunner's issue - fixed. Well done Assassin.
  2. Ad-hoc/Impromptu SB sessions

    Loitering in TS, but need to be elsewhere at 2000 GMT.
  3. Ad-hoc/Impromptu SB sessions

    All good. Just finished. I suspect numbers down because the number of Christmas Parties on Friday night your time are on the rise?
  4. Ad-hoc/Impromptu SB sessions

    Loitering in the SB TS Lobby.
  5. Next Kanium Sunday session?

    I can attend on the 30th (subject to recording). The 6th and beyond I'm back at work.
  6. Steel Beasts "Summer Camp"

    Apart from these: Oh and 1900GMT turns into 0600 or 0500 for East Coast Australia, earlier the further you go West, so I'm not sure that's "the best window". In any case I intend to post some polls since very few people want to give me their preference and want me to somehow guess for them.
  7. Media Files

    Irish, I know *.wav files work. Unsure if other formats are supported though.
  8. Ad-hoc/Impromptu SB sessions

    Well until the 21st I'm limited to your Fridays and Saturdays. After that though I'm more available (I'll be available for Kanium on Sundays, but wont attend since "may be recorded" = I can't take the risk) - but will likely focus on the Summer Camp thing. I'm trying to ensure they don't conflict with you but if there's a clash then the Summer Camp will win for me (which will be unfortunate as some people may be wanting to do both).
  9. Steel Beasts "Summer Camp"

    Nike, Thanks, does that mean exclude the entire 24 hours? e.g. 24 December actually mean "don't schedule anything from 0000 to 2359"? I'm currently probably looking at three sessions, each one devoted to one of the different levels outlined previously.
  10. We love videos

    ?? Blue's AAR says "Major Defeat Mission score 0.0 out of 1000.0" but its OK, at least according to my therapist.
  11. By now most readers will already know who BG ANZAC is, so I'll put the information relevant to this week in first, then background, etc. If you are new to the Forum, feel free to read the entire post. IMPORTANT: As a serving Officer, I am not allowed to make "public comment" about topics without clearance. This is why my signature block says what it says to cover written comment. Recorded audio on YouTube = "Public Comment", especially if I were to express a personal opinion (without knowing someone was recording). In addition recording people's voices in Australia is illegal without their permission or a Warrant. If you want to record a session, ASK! We maybe about fit you in (I maybe able to play the OPFOR, etc.). If you don't ask: a. Expect me to ask you to remove the YouTube (or other media). b. Don't be too surprised if you aren't welcomed back. BLUF (Bottom Line Up Front): Your Local time: Click on this link for the Local time in your part of the world Last one prior to Daylight saving commencing here in Australia. Count down: Time remaining until Meeting start Mission will start promptly at 0830 GMT. If you want a pre game "chat" then by all means come on line at say 0800 GMT, but so that the Kiwi's aren't after Midnight the Mission will commence promptly at 0830 GMT. Agenda: One of the following: 1. Have another of Chris's gems to test so hopefully we get a few people. 2. Continuing the discussion on Scenario Design and things to think about. This may well be expanded to include the recent "recce vs Main Force" battle idea. 3. Revisiting some "not so easy missions" from the past - probably harder still after 4.023. These need a few people to turn up. 4. Do some "Brilliant at the Basics" work? This can encompass some Tutorials (along the recent sessions on Obstacles, Artillery, Symbology, Routes and Tactics, etc.) or working through some small unit density scenarios. 5. Try and lock in some dates for this: As always, visitors (apart from one individual) / first timers / spectators are welcome. Current Standard: 4.023 Please use the new Calendar RSVP function or post here to facilitate planning. Background: Who is BG ANZAC? https://www.bganzac.org Described here: http://www.steelbeasts.com/sbforums/showthread.php?t=21753 A couple of examples of the BattleGroup at work: Multi Player session: Training session: Timings: Thursday evenings, Australian East Coast time. Through a combination of democracy, state's rights and bl**dy mindedness, the country is now fractured into numerous time zones (three wasn't enough) for the next six months and we need to adjust the start time. Next meeting: 0830 GMT on Thursday, December 13th. 0830 in London 1630 in Perth 1800 in Darwin 1900 in Adelaide 1830 in Brisbane 1930 in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra 2130 NZST in Auckland In game chat / Communications: You'll need access to "Teamspeak" to communicate with us. The Teamspeak software is available here: Download Teamspeak client software How to connect and use it is detailed here: Steel Beasts Wiki Entry - Starter Pack Remote Access / Screen Sharing / Whiteboard Sessions: We continue the use of TeamViewer so people without the Steel Beasts software can connect and see and hear what we see and hear (looking over our shoulder if you like). Team Viewer available here This maybe a suitable vehicle for people to see what the software is all about (you can even use it on a Mac), without having to invest in even a short time limited copy. Anyway we'll see how it goes. So if you are interested, visit our web site https://www.bganzac.org and sign up.
  12. We love videos

    Just didn't need my face rubbed in it (Red: 1000, Blue: 0) twice in a row.
  13. We love screenshots

    Trump Tower in the background?
  14. Installation of old Steel Beasts

    If you intend to play "solo" (i.e. not join multi-player) there is no requirement to upgrade. You will be limited to the vehicles, etc. in Ver 3.x but it will still run. If you want to interact with others then you need to remain "current" (at the moment that is 4.023). Sometime in the not too distant future there is a planned, paid, upgrade so it maybe worth your while to: a. Get 3.x working. b. Leapfrog past 4.023 to 4.XXX in due course. If you want to see what 4.023 offers (compared to 3.x) then yes the various YouTube AARs are useful or you can come along to my "Summer Camp" activity:
