  1. On that topic, do the Russians have any Bear D's left? I also thought the Kitchen missile was no longer in use, is that true, if so what anti-ship missle would the Russians use, BrahMos? I was checking the Backfires in the current database and there isn't a version without the Kitchen. Maybe they are still in inventory and I am wrong?
  2. Tried some minehunting and was able to get the 250lb mines when they were on the surface with the Kingstons.
  3. I forgot to set a depth for the mines I was using in my test scenarios so I should look at that, thanks.
  4. Thanks for the replies. When I get a chance, I will play a little more and see if I can get those mines with the Kingstons.
  5. Given that the Kingston class has no sonar set is it fair to say that they cannot effectively engage mines at all, even if spotted by other unit's sonars?
  6. I've set up some quick test games to try and do some minesweeping for a scenario I would like to do. I don't know if I am doing something wrong or if it is just the quality of units I am using. I am trying to hunt with the Canadian Kingston class MCDV's (PG) and as mentioned in their notes, they have "limited minehunting capabilities". They are outfitted with some minehunting gear but I always hit the mine before being able to "attack" the mine. They don't have any sonar so I've located the mines with a Halifax class, but when I send the Kingston ships in they always hit the mines. Is this a function of their poor equipment (similar to RL) or is there something I am missing? I am using 250lb floating mines as the targets. I think the range for the minehunting loadout is 0.7, is it possible the mine attack range is greater then that and I will never be able to get close enough? Thanks.
  7. Any chance of adding the Canadian CH-146 Griffon? Similar to the Hueys in the game, but it would be nice to have this Canadian specific asset added for patrol, SAR and with a rifle squad. Actually, also I would like to have the CP-140A Arcturus which is a stripped downed Aurora used for surveillance. Without the ASW gear it has a longer range for maritime recon. Given the potential for the arctic meltdown, it would be nice to have these Canadian birds added.
  8. Updated and works fine now, thank you.
  9. I'll update if I get a chance tonight. I remember playing with these Battlesets in the past, but I do remember doing a new install of the game since then and I most likely didn't update after that.
  10. No version number in the title bar so I must have an older version. Where do I get the new version?
  11. Wow, that was quick. Not sure where to see which version I have. The two I downloaded: http://harpgamer.com/harpforum/index.php?a...mp;showfile=298 http://harpgamer.com/harpforum/index.php?a...mp;showfile=292 and using http://harpgamer.com/harpforum/index.php?a...mp;showfile=260 database.
  12. Hello all, I've downloaded a couple of Battlesets (Falkland and South Atlantic) but everytime I select the battleset in the game or the SE I get a "memory Allocation Failure" message. Any ideas?

    Worked for me too.
  14. I'm planning a scenario using Diego Garcia, does anyone know what the current defenses are for the island? Besides the pre-positioned ships and the transient tankers and bombers what are the air defenses like and are there any fighters or garrison? Do any small naval combatants call the base home? Thanks for any insight.
  15. I never really thought about this in the past, but could a Russian/Iranian crew not sail it there making port calls along the way? Would it be too dangerous to do this or do nations usually want subs with zero miles on them? When us Canadians purchased the Upholders we had crews train in the UK on them prior to sailing them to Canada.

    I have the same problem on a netbook. I found this post http://harpgamer.com/harpforum/index.php?showtopic=2321 which I will try tonight hoping that it will resolve the issue.
  17. Funny, I just logged on as I have a problem where I can never confirm the location of a patrol and therefore can't play the game. I hope this resolves that issue. Good thing posts from 2007 are still around
  18. Thanks, I'll keep that in mind if I really get the itch. I have a new netbook coming with an Atom processor and Win7. I don't know if it is 64-bit or not, but I would assume it is.
  19. Thanks for the quick reply. Too bad about the SE, that is my favorite part of the game.
  20. Can I play HCE with the 64 bit version of Vista? I'm a real noob when it comes to dealing with OS's.
  21. Hello all, I'm trying to find time to get back into Harpoon after a long break. Has anyone done a scenario about a modern strike on Iran's nuclear ambitions? I couldn't readily find one in the downloads.
  22. Unfortunately, I have not been able to pinpoint the problem. I have tried two other scenarios (can't remember which ones) and the first on crashed when I increased the time and the second after 2 of my planes were shot down. In the second case, this wasn't the first message to come up as I had shot down an number of planes and had some of mine shot down as well. I actually have not tried shutting off my virus program, I will try that next.
  23. I tried turning off autosave, but could only set it to 60 min, however the game crashed again prior to that. I tried EC2003 IOPG 07.
  24. I will turn off the autosave next time I try, however I believe I did try that at some point without any luck. As well, last time I tried a game it crashed 30 sec into the game, long before the autosave would have interfered. I will attempt to play some more tonight and test some other scenarios. Thanks for helping as I am dying to play this game since it has been a good 10 years since it occupied so many hours of my evenings.
