  1. Works still on mobile but not desktop browsers
  2. Question as 4.268 has been announced to be available withing the next few hours, do we stick to 4.267 or run on 4.268?
  3. Same on the Leopard. But for sleep rest turret would either have been fixed in 11:40 position to allow gunners legs to be spread to the drivers hull compartment. More likely to be at 6 o clock with the gunner TC resting on the motor with the gun and a tarp as tent. In both positions turret would have been locked In the end in terms of safety while operating the tank counting the incidents / injuries encountered In any of the units I served I would rather say the driver is the safest place.
  4. apart of some of these basically nothing on the Leopard 2 Spend 12 years on that thing and can't remember a single driver-turret incident
  5. If the Waypoint is set to something other than "none" the AI will remain on that waypoint with the given tactic. If you want them to procees onto a route attached from that waypoint you set a Embark if and tell them under which condition they should move on. All the concepts are IMHO very well explained on the wiki https://www.steelbeasts.com/sbwiki/index.php?title=Moving_Units_On_Routes
  6. Even on a real simulator depending on the mission I had occasions to call out to my gunner: Kick him, cause the driver felt asleep 😃
  7. As requested by some users after last kanium session I recorded the process of setting up a Autohotkey Script that set's up 3 keybinds in order to activate push the CITV buttons in M1A2 TC F3 view. It got a bit lenghty as I just recorded the full process and trying to explain the whole process instead of just providing the script as I tried to keep the script as simple as possible and there fore it need some prework, mainly identifying the position of the buttons on screen in F3 view. This position can differ due to screen resolution or multi monitor setup. But just for the sake for those already using AHK or ant to see the script ;Press ALT e mouse will move to given screen location and perfom a Left mouse click !e:: KeyWait Alt ;Position of the CITV Man Auto Button in F3 view Click, 349,123,Left, 1 ,D Sleep 100 Click, 349,123,Left, 1 ,U return ;Press ALT f mouse will move to given screen location and perfom a Left mouse click !f:: KeyWait Alt ;Position of the CITV GLOS in F3 view Click, 349,272,Left, 1 ,D Sleep 100 Click, 349,272,Left, 1 ,U return ;Press ALT i mouse will move to given screen location and perfom a Left mouse click !i:: KeyWait Alt ;Position of the GPS GLOS in F3 view Click, 349,389,Left, 1 ,D Sleep 100 Click, 349,389,Left, 1 ,U return
  8. They would automatically dismount and the APCwould even retreat back to a hull down position. But the issue is that the dismounted have tactics none set once dismounted and no way to change that as far as I can say, therefore they would not engage any enemy they are facing. As I personally currently get into how to best implement scripting into OPFOR I'm now more into do it in a more micromanaging way with very short legs for the APC/IFV and then conditional dismount and embark if for the infantry
  9. Made some progress with Marders in my test by setting the route action to Scout and a Dismount if under direct fire condition to get a more reasonable behaviour than to let them run into death
  10. It just the link text that hasn't been update to reflect the time change from CEST to CET from Saturday to Sunday. MajDuck confirmed that on Discord. Event starts 2000CET/1900GMT
  11. But isn't the question NOT about waypoint battleposition behaviour but on behaviour while still on route. But as Apocalypse stated as per doc Engage Rout tactic I'm personally stil quite ned to SB and try to get myself scenario design therefore making myself lots of micro scenarios in order to get a feel for the tactical behavior of the AI while using different commands and conditions. Having been a Instructor on the AGPT Simulator for quite a few years I expect that to become a tedious process
  12. Very little but essential detail seems you have to hold CTRL for the finishing right click
  13. after a lot of wild clicking I managed to get this. so 1. group units to a taskfore 2. Select new group route 3. CTRL + Click on the first route point 4. Shift + Click Additional route 5. CTRL+ Click for last route point 6. Right click to finish (while still pressing CTRL)
  14. Now I'm confused. Exporting the default Standard.hkf to html and importing to Excel for better searchability. If German is selected as application language and Default standard.hkf is loaded the command for "close (formation) spacing" / "Abstände im Zug verkleinern" is "-" not "ü" as you stated. Even when changing application language to English it stays the same so in my understating changing SB language still uses the keyboard layout set in OS. Nevertheless I stated it just to show a Proof of concept that there are other ways to operate functions that don't have the possibility be bound through the SB controls menu to a keyboard and/or joystick command. So one could use whatever keyboard combo or joystick button to execute a mouse move and click AHK macro in order to switch those CITV buttons without using the mouse itself As the only suggested solution in this thread sofar if using a joystick was to set up the mouse to be used left handed. And btw the most sophisticated way by using SB on a touchsreen monitor, at least on the 3 Touchscreen monitors i have on hand I wasn't able to get SB to recognize Touch inputs
  15. Even so this is 5 years old. I have been asked if on a discord channel if there would be a technical solution to operate the CITV buttons in F3 view through a keyboard binding and yes there is/are technical solution/s. With tools like AutoIt or AutoHotkeys one could have a AHK script running that reacts to a keyboard or joystick input and translate into a mouse move to a given postion and execute a mouse click. So won't work in F1 view but in F3 view as the buttons to click with the mouse are all in the same position it works. Just as a simple Proof of concept. So pressing ü (just used it for the test as it an unused key in SB on a German keyboard) can be replaced with key combos as well, send the mouse to the CITV Scan Man/Auto Button and send a left mouse click ü:: MouseClick, left, 347, 129 return
  16. Don't know your usecase but you could just use APP-6 (C) NATO JOINT MILITARY SYMBOLOGY as reference. Even so quite new myself to SB but the symbols I seen so far are all standard. https://www.map.army/ provides an easy navigatable and searchable reference of army symbology
  17. Can't confirm. Everything kept over deinstallation of 4.265 and rinstallation of 4.267
