  1. Now if only the British Army would wake up to what SB Pro can give them, we could have an interior to go with with that Chally 2 model......!!! (Sorry... Just dreaming out loud) :biggrin:
  2. Like Rump I also only play offline. I haven't had chance to test it (read play!) with 2.546, but with 2.538 I've encountered it on a regular basis in various Leo2 models (2A5DK, STRV 122, and the 2E). I can't swear I've seen it everytime I've reloaded, but I've certainly come across it on a regular basis. Not sure if this bit of info helps at all, but I alway use the menu bar options to initiate reloading.
  3. I'm guessing Rump means when (as TC) you give the order to reload, the gunner reports "Roger" and the turret swings to the correct position to move rounds from the stowage to the ready rack...... But then nothing happens except the gun barrel flicking up and down. Like he says jumping into the gunner's seat and back to the TC position fixes it and reloading continues as normal.
  4. All you need to go with that is a bumper sticker that says "Clamp this you *******!!" :biggrin:
  5. What happened in 1990? I was in Africa at that time and only got back to the UK in 2000. I thought that reperations for WW2 weren't considered for inclusion in the peace treaty in 1945 due to the damage those from WW1 had caused?
  6. So would this be a good time to submit the bill for WW2 then.........? :diable:
  7. How about the fact they've given us the best armoured warfare sim ever made available to the public, and supported it for over four years even though the profit it entailed is probably far outweighed by the extra work involved? Or the fact that they have been consistantly open and honest with the community about what is and isn't possible/ feasable, which is a refreshing change compared to most other software companies?

    DCS A-10C

    It does look good. Funny thing is I have DCS-Black Shark (the Ka-50 sim), but for some reason, as much as I enjoy the fidelity of the Ka-50..... And can guess how good this will be (seeing that it's like the SB ProPE of flight sims insofar as Eagle Dynamics originally produced this sim as a training tool for the National Guard) I can't work up any excitement for it at all.
  9. Many thanks. Going to download them now.
  10. I just ran the tutorial again (the basic arty tutorial) and this time managed to get the infra red sight to function..... Not quite sure how... first time around none of the function keys made a difference. This time once I got the IR sight, I was also able to access the Commander's eye view (but everything outside the viewports was pitch black. That might well be it, Ssnake. Next time I fire SB up I'll check the map info for that tutorial and post it here for you if that's any help? EDIT: Just opened the basic arty tutorial in the mission editor and sure enough the time of day is off. The tutorial is based on the NTC map with a start time of 12:00, but beneath that UCT is set to +8 making the actual start time 22:00. I left the UCT setting as it was and shifted start time back to 01:00 and sure enough I could see more than a black screen.
  11. Yeah I've got the same with Blue vehicles in the tutorials. Also has anyone else got problems with the Artillery tutorials (in the support section). The first tutorial loads up fine and the briefing is fine, but as soon as I try to go to the action phase I get nothing but a black screen with the usual control bar at the bottom (where the messages/ direction and speed controls etc are). Not too sure if this is a fault with the tutorial or me doing something wrong.

    ..... So a burst from the Co-ax would definitely be frowned upon then.......? :diable:
  13. Thanks for the responses gents. So the consensus is that it could be better to split a mission with multiple tactical goals (such as the example I mentioned in the OP) over a couple of scenarios then (so keeping each "phase" of the overall scenario plan to about an hour).
  14. Well if every other word doesn't start with an "F" it's not proper military terminology!! :biggrin:
