BG ANZAC - 19 JUL 0900GMT (with TeamViewer support)

Recommended Posts

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.


Timings: Thursday evenings, Australian East Coast time.


Daylight saving is over here, just in time for BST etc. to kick in.


Next meeting: 0900 GMT on Thursday, July 19th.

1700 in Perth

Count down: Time remaining until Meeting start


Mission will start promptly at 0900 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 0900 GMT.


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.




Assuming someone turns up, one of the following:


1. Continuing the discussion on Scenario Design and things to think about.


2. If we get enough people coming back, perhaps run their solutions to the homework given out previously? I've updated the "SOSRA" mission to incorporate a "fix" to the FASCAM issue (refer post in Support thread).


Link to the current version will be in the email accompanying this post.


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. Perhaps give some of Chris's latest creations a go.


5. 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.


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.

Glad to see you there. If you ever want to go over anything just ask and someone will talk you through it or host a small learning session :D


Next most used tank is the various marks of Leopard and M2 Bradleys common as well

Glad you enjoyed it and appreciate you getting up early. :)


One little suggestion I remembered after you left - I usually helps to use the same name in TS and in the SB session.
