  1. Command: Modern Air and Naval Operation: 65% off = $27.99 US. Since I have CPU and RAM to burn, it's time for me to try this game out. Northern Inferno is 50% off as well = $9.99 US. Mav 2nd Note: Same prices available on Matrix Games. If you've stayed away from this game because of sticker shock, paying 27.99 + 11.97 (DLC) + 9.99 (Northern Inferno), i.e. 50 bucks vs 112 for the same content at full price, is a good deal. I have a 5-day weekend coming up over New Years after covering Christmas for the other 2 people, and I intend to spend it blowing things up.
  2. The 2015.001 scenedit 32 does the same thing on EC2003 IOPG #5 and EC2003 MEDC #11 at least. I don't have any old still working (not expired beta) GEs or I would have tried those.
  3. I've seen it in other EC2003 scens that I was looking through for ideas...but I don't remember which ones right now. Anyway, just saying that's not the only one.
  4. Actually, there was an 80-cm German weapon used in World War II that took two tracks to run on. Dora
  5. Heck, I'd just like to have access to the tool to *see* the flags and such on the old DBs, not necessarily to edit them. If I want an up-to-date DB that can be edited as time goes on, I can use the current modular setup. However, to be able to know what a/c can fly vlow, what missile min/max alts are, etc are info I'd love to know. Also, various base defenses.
  6. Just to revisit this topic a bit: I did try running Harpoon in Wineskin on my Mac, but the graphic glitch, and the issues with the scenario editor pretty much killed it for me. The GE runs perfectly aside from the graphic issues, though. I did get a few other games to run perfectly in Wineskin, though. Good enough to go out to gog.com and get the 'complete' installers with all the expansions cheap, and install them in Wineskin wrappers. A couple of them even run better under Wineskin than the Mac ports did. What I do now, and will continue to do, is run HCE in a Windows XP VM under VirtualBox. Everything works perfectly, including the scenario editor, and I can even run it in 'Seamless Mode' which puts the windows directly on my Mac desktop. No 64-bit problems like with Windows 7. As far as security issues with end-of-life XP, I just turned off the network card for the VM, and move files to it with a shared folder capablilty built into VirtualBox. However, I will most likely try installing H3 in a skin at some point, and see how it does, though. It shouldn't have the same issues, since it's newer.
  7. What debug option will show a message when my own missiles and/or torpedoes run out of fuel and go away?
  8. I have seen the AI launch bearing-only Sandboxes and Shipwrecks on a long, thin ESM hit, and get it too short, killing their own ships. Had a Kirov kill a Slava while the Slava killed two Sovremennys. So, sometimes the AI does stuff like that, yes. As far as from the code side, I can't answer that.
  9. Yeah, not about to shell out that much for it at this point. 80 bucks for the digital edition? Not happening anytime soon, for what I'm hearing is not a comp;lete game yet. Not when I'm used to picking up 1A titles on launch day for half that.
  10. I'm getting ready to run this old scenario with the help of the Toolbox's auto search patterns, and the 'cover' command. Should save me some micromanagement...
  11. If you are after the functions in "Toolbox" then you need to get the latest file from: http://harpgamer.com/harpforum/index.php?/files/file/809-toolbox/ and put the zipped DLL into the exportDLL folder of your installation. The toolbox should appear when you start the game, you will need a recent beta main program. Is this what you are after? Just making sure there wasn't a prerequisite DLL package to download in addition to your Toolbox. I've played with it some, and I'm getting an idea of how it works. Found the missing stuff, too. I'm just old and blind, that's all.
  12. That should work fine. Thanks for the confirmation, Tony. It seemed to work fine, but I wanted to make sure.
  13. To be clear, Tony, I can just add the files from the current >100 revisions to my working 2009.79ish install and proceed, right? My HUCE update doesn't work....
  14. I don't need other DLLs to load this, right? I don't see the cover function, etc...
  15. We respect the DB author's decision and reasons for safeguarding his work. I respect that, as well, but I also reserve the right to be annoyed when bugs crop up in it that I can't fix because of his choices. I'll leave the subject alone, just noting that it's just one more reason NOT to play H3/ANW.
