I find very difficult to play this scen from USA side, only 4 F-15s a pair of Orions and a DDG are quickly attacked and burned by lots of planes that seem to come from coastal Venezuela air bases.
I set the DDG to Puerto La Cruz and launch a P3 and then F-15s to attack enemy planes flying near my ship,but they are quickly shot down.
Any ideas ??

Could you post a scenario play-through where you use the "missions" feature of the game? I noticed that you haven't used that feature in? any of your scenario tutorials yet (except for the tutorial of course). Thanks.

I have installed the last version of the PlayersDB for ANW, HUE and H3-363 without problem.
I have installed also the file with the "ANW and HUE images" ... the installed worked fine but I have a doubt:
- the installer put these images under the directory DATABASES/PLAYERSDB/PICS
but normally the images are under the directory RESOURCES/DBPICS
so my question is simple ... I have to move the images under this directory or they are found also under where the installer put them?

Apologies in advance for the length of this video, but the request for assistance specified a detailed walk-through for this scenario. Therefore, this game was recorded in real time without the use of any pauses normally employed in the recording process to abbreviate videos.

Hi Herman,

Thanks for the information - I think I am underestimating the power of this simulation - the graphics etc must be deluding me because I just didn't realize it modeled threats up to this detail. From what you are saying, it obviously does this to an incredible degree.

I didn't realize you prepared walk through videos of scenarios either, whilst the mission was successful, I would still be interested to see a walk through if its on offer?

Finally just another quick one - I'm at work at the moment, but for when I get home - is there a plotting tool I can use on the subs to draw nm ranges around them to remind me of the 150% threat areas etc - couldn't find a way to do it last time I checked?

Thanks so much for your help.

In direct response to a request from BlindGuyNW:

"I just purchased Harpoon Ultimate Edition, largely on the strength of an article on SimHQ which I can't seem to link to. Granted, that discusses a beta version of the game, but the interface does not seem to have changed appreciably. I have always been interested in games with depth and complexity, and Harpoon definitely seems to offer that. i've also been blind since birth.
I was wondering if anyone had suggestions on how I ought to proceed. Much of the information provided by the game is textual in nature, but the map is also obviously important. As that article points out, I can't set courses for groups easily.
Given that someone obviously has been able to play the game and understand what was happening, I feel like it should be possible. I'm just not quite sure how to begin.
If anybody has suggestions, or tips on how to handle things in an automated fashion, or what have you, it would be greatly appreciated.
One thought I had was to begin with mostly stationary platforms, so I didn't have to worry about movement quite so much.
Other than that, I'm a bit lost. My screen reader is able to parse most of the controls in the game, thankfully."

In direct response to a request for assistance:

"Hi guys, sorry to butt in but I'm getting desperate, I got Larry Bond's Harpoon Ultimate Edition recently but when I try to do a BOL missile launch with key combo CTRL-F1 in Harpoon 3 ANW (PC version 3.11.1.0) which is bundled with it, the game freezes.

Does Ctrl-F1 work for you?"

http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/show...92&postcount=5

[HUE] BOL and XP compatibility mode
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=--Cc5XJJEFA

The BOL problem does not appear when the game is run with WinXP. I also tried to run HUE v3.11.1.0 under WinXP SP3 emulation mode and it did not solve the problem. The same symptoms appeared under WinXP emulation mode.

I believe that there is a glitch or bug with Win7, but there is a work-around solution. Hope it helps.

[Edit] After a series of online meetings and tests with Poor Old Spike, the work-around solution does help, but the game _must be installed under Administrator-level privileges_. Spike had to uninstall and re-install the game under Administrator access in order to use the Minimize/Maximize work-around solution.
