This video is 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


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.

I've started to familiarise myself with Harpoon 3. Having played a bit of Fleet Command and Global Conflict Blue in the past helps to understand some of the basic concepts of course but the Youtube channel is good for getting a view on how to handle things in Harpoon.

Is there a possibility to measure ranges between contacts or arbitrary locations on the map in Harpoon (3)?
In the Sonalyst games and simulations you can easily do this with the 'R' hotkey but I was not able to find a similar feature in Harpoon...

There is a Range-Finder function in H3. To activate it, use the NumPad5 hotkey. Then, click on any two points of the map and the range between the points is shown in the message log window.

Glad to see you playing the classic naval wargames.

Oh thank you, that did the trick.

I'm still slowly working through the tutorials. Next step would be to install the PlayersDB as this seems to have the reputation to provide the most stable game experience.

You might want to install the PlayersDB before you try the tutorials. When the tutorials were re-written for compatibility with the PlayersDB, several problems were fixed. If you run the Official Tutorials, you may encounter them unknowingly.

Thanks for the tip, I installed the PlayersDB after my previous reply. The Mission Editor tutorial crashed when assigning the Tomcats to the AAW patrol mission so I disabled PlayersDB temporarily.

Now I'm starting the Falklands battleset.

Sorry to hear of your crash. Can you specify which version of the game you are running? (H3 v3.6.3, ANW 3.9.4, or HUE 3.11)

Also, what version is your computer operating system?

I would like to try and replicate the problem.

Harpoon version is 3.6.3 with PlayersDB v19.01.30 running on Windows 10 64-bit

My steps to reproduce are:
1. Load tutorial "Mission editor"
2. Drag-select reference points 3, 4, 5, 6
3. Create mission from the 'Mission' pull-down menu
4. Rename the mission to 'AAW patrol 1'
5. Select mission type as 'Patrol AAW'
6. Check 'Edit now'
7. Uncheck '1/3 Rule'
8. Select RAD Emissions as 'Act'
9. Press 'Ok'
10. In the 'Edit Missions' window, press 'Add AC' button -> Harpoon crashes with prompt about unhandled exception at some address.

Thank you for such precise instructions on your steps to the crash. When dealing with bugs, there is no such thing as too much information.

I tested with my WinXP Service Pack 3 32-bit computer and another computer with Win7 Pro 64-bit system and managed to successfully advance to the next step without a problem.



Sadly, I have no access to any systems with Win10 and thus am able to fully replicate your crash.

Are you able to continue with the v3.6.3 game tutorials using the official databases? Have you tried the other game versions (ANW v3.9.4 or HUE v3.11) and encountered the same crash? The PlayersDB is available for all three H3 versions.

I do notice a small discrepancy between our two images. Your image shows "LESSON VII" while my image depicts "Lesson 07 Using Mission Editor". "LESSON VII" is the manner in which the original tutorial scenarios for the official databases were named. When the tutorial was re-written for compatibility with the PlayersDB, it was re-named more extensively.
