It looks like the new installer for 4.250 is not working properly; the old installer for 4.250 should work: https://www.steelbeasts.com/topic/14632-42-install-crashing-system/

I think this refers to the new installer for 4.250:

For some reason the VAMTAC recce version is not playable, but the remaining VAMTAC versions are. but in controls the recce version has an own filter with commands?
Is it by mistake or is it just not ready yet?
The VAMTAC Recce was removed, from the release because it was not ready yet (rather complex controls, and still buggy a f***)
The menue entries probably slipped trough by mistake.

Yes, we are testing it: https://www.steelbeasts.com/topic/14631-sb-pro-pe-4250-posted/page/2/?tab=comments#comment-211557

So even if we've already installed, we have to download and install again?  Because of one round inadvertently making it in.  I mean...we have a lot of bugs we grin and bear it on with no thought that any patch will be forthcoming for months and possibly years.  But this one round will require a redownload and reinstall?

Maybe I'm misunderstanding and my righteous indignation is misplaced.
No, the patch will probably be out in a month or two. (Long enough to catch 90% of the bugs eSim missed, but didn't fundamentally break the program, things like carrying over default ammo values, and the: "Ok, that's weird, why is the sky purple?!" kind of bugs. )
We're in a kind of unofficial Gamma/Open Beta Testing phase at the moment.

OK, why?

And what happens if I don't?
It contains at least two bug fixes and, I think, also removes a language-specific error that could occur with some languages. At to what would happen if you don't, we don't know for certain. It might be that "bad stuff" during network sessions happened which may or may not materialize with a warning, early on or late in a game, and/or maybe not every game session.
Of course you can take your chances until the next regular patch comes out.
It it installed just fine for you and if you don't participate in network games, I suppose the urgency is not so high. But there's always the danger that you forget about this snag and then Steel Beasts might behave oddly and it might be hard to track it down. So, please be so kind.

If you except the error of a completely new piece of software this has already simplified the process immensely its made so almost everybody with a screed of knowledge can use it the only little thing i would suggest is a strong emphasis on running the installer with admin rights as all users in windows are not running with admin rights pr default you have to specifically make them do or use the administrator account which is also pr definition wrong.
Also make sure that windows defender and firewall are off beside the antivirus if the first install dossent work as it have shot me down 2 times today

But this program have already saved me 2-3 hours of work today so yes they are straight forward at the very least compared to what we had so thumps up to Nils and the boys thank you very much.

Thanks for clearing up your pro-nouns. All these years and I thought you used different ones, whoops.

Well, the upgrade is not straightforward because we tried to make the installer easier (one unified link, to install everything), and look what happened.

But that is the nature of software development; you try different methods that look fine for the testing base, but then when it gets 'into the wild' it turns out there are other issues.  What matters, I think, is that we try to fix those issues, and don't just go dark. But at least we are using a free update to learn here for next time...
I know; that's why I wanted to clarify my pro-nouns just for your benefit.

As for my previous comment of the upgrades not being straightforward, this is my fault I did not take the time to read anything and assumed that this upgrade would continue the past trend of being overly complicated. I admit (after reading a few notes) I was wrong.

Truly credit is due for you and your team for your hard work, after all these years its finally simple to use.

Thank you

thanks. the CV9040B and CV9040C were some of the first vehicles created for steel beasts pro pe way back in 2006, after the danish leopard 2A5DK and pizarro, and the second real military vehicle i ever got to explore the insides of in person. i remember sitting for the better part of 3 whole days inside the CV9040B troop compartment with my laptop, taking measures, pictures, asking the crew about specific details on the vehicle and modeling the interior..

needless to say, the exterior model was in dire need of a proper update.
and yes, the vehicles in general look better now, thanks to a new lighting update that Mike has done. it takes into consideration environment light colour, which makes the vehicles blend in better with the environment. it's sort of primitive PBR. it's not perfect, but a huge step up from the older lighting system.
