  1. Hi All, Thank you to everyone for your help and interest. I downloaded Version 3. It took me a few tries but I now have Version 3 running. It was a bit of work but I like solving software "mysteries".........sometimes. John
  2. I am retired and Family will be visiting for Christmas. However, being retired, I am pretty much free but for Christmas Eve and Day. 22 DEC - 06 JAN is fine for me. I am in Toronto Canada so that is 5 hrs behind GMT. However I often stay up late so I may be able to attend as I imagine you will try to arrange timing to include the maximum amount of people. Thank you for trying to organize this.
  3. Thank you. That really worked well. It says I have version 3.00. I took a screenshot that I will attach to the email I send to Snake.
  4. Thank you Gibsonm and Rotareneg for your helpful replies.
  5. Thank you for your reply. I have watched some video of scenarios on youtube and they looked good and had the right feel. I will look at some of the AAR's.
  6. Hi, I bought the Steel Beasts Professional PE software quite a while ago. The manual says it requires Windows XP or 2000. The date on the CD is 2007. There is another number on the CD as well 01-0128-20500. I cannot see anywhere in the manual or on the CD what version it is. I have the my original CD and my original Codemeter. When I start installation there is no choice of installation path. The default is C: and my C: drive is only for my operating system. I never had the time to give the Game the attention needed to learn how it works properly. So I uninstalled it. Now I am retired and I have time. Here are my questions that I am hoping to be helped with. 1. Is there a way to choose the installation path for my current game version? 2. I enjoy using Infantry. As I recall in my early version the infantry model was not very comprehensive. If I upgrade I presume the latest version 4 has the best Infantry model. Is that right? 3. Can I use my current codemeter? 4. Perhaps someone can suggest the best way for me to go about upgrading, and if I should upgrade to version 3 or 4? Thanks for taking the time to read my post. John
  7. Thank you. I shall have to try that.
  8. Thanks for your reply. I mean when you use the mouse to scroll around the terrain in the gunners position and for targeting before you lase.
  9. Does anyone know of a way to adjust the mouse scrolling speed?
  10. More optional views and optional floating coins to enable playing steel beasts as a wargame. Being able to open the map in a window while remaining in the 3d view. If the above were implemented then Steel Beasts could be, in addition to a detailed simulation, a great wargame. I believe lots of wargamers would like to have it.
  11. Thank you once more Mark.
  12. I have been looking, but I can't find answers to the following; The manual explains, under the specialist tutorial, how various "leg" units work. However it is not made clear how they move. Am I correct to think they move in the same way as vehicles? It is explained how helicopters transport troops but does not tell you how to load them. I am not talking about moving company's or platoons but an odd unit here and there. How is that done? Any help is much appreciated.
