Beginners Bootcamp

This is a work in progress....

Documentation
http://dogsofwarvu.com/forum/index.php/topic,189.0.html

Manual:
Default install directory: \eSim Games\SB Pro PE\docs\SBProManual

Key Chart:
Default install directory: \eSim Games\SB Pro PE\docs\PDF for print\KeyboardChart_EN


Add a new user:
   Adding a new user = Main menu > Records
When you start Steel Beasts it has an existing user "Lt Default". You need to create a new user. This is important as you will build up a record of your time with Steel Beasts. This record includes, amongst others, the following:
   Gunnery rating
   Hit percentage
   Major victories
   etc...

In Single Player mode the friendly AI skill level is taken from your rating. So if you have a rating of 70 then the friendly AI will also have that rating. This does not apply to multi-player. You can increae your Gunnery rating by practicing on the Tank range. Pracice makes perfect.
   Gunnery Practice = Main menu > Tank Range


Vehicle Choice:
Pick 1 vehicle and stick with it. This will make the learning process easier as many of the veicles have different systems which are quite complex. Popular choices are:
   Leo2A5DK = Tank
   M1A2Sep = Tank
   M2A2 (ODS) = IFV

Once you have selected your vehicle then do a complete set of tutorials for that particular vehicle.
   Leo2A5DK = 24 part tutorial
   M1A2Sep = 21 part tutorial
   M2A2 (ODS) = 15 part tutorial

Difficulty Settings
This will influence the quality of enemy forces, that is, the quality of their gunners and the likelihood of crews to spot you (=their reaction time).
   Settings = Low/Medium/High

Realism Settings
This will on the lowest level activate a number of little helpers that will support you maintaining situational awareness, e.g. a crosshair to estimate where the gun is pointing when overriding the gunner in the M1, direction indicators for reference points, the laser tag marker on the map. These helpers will gradually disappear when increasing the realism level.
   Settings = Low/Medium/High

Use the correct version

When you install SB you may have a shortcut on your desktop. This will start the 32Bit version. If you have a 64Bit OS it is advised to use the 64Bit exe.

Solutions:

1. Start SB from the "Start" button in Windows.
   Programs
   eSims Games
   Steel Beasts Pro PE
   Steel Beasts Pro PE (x64)

2. Replace the 32Bit shortcut with a 64Bit shortcut
   Right click on the shortcut
   Select "Open file location"
   You will be taken to the "Release" folder
   You will see 2 Application icons. "Steel Beasts Pro PE" &  "Steel Beasts Pro PE (x64)"
   Right click on the "Steel Beasts Pro PE (x64)" and create a shortcut. Place it on your desktop.

The below image shows this is "Version 3.025 (x64)


I would suggest you delete the 32Bit shortcut to remove confusion.

The above is only advice for a 64Bit install

Tutorials

There are some good in-game tutorials to be found.
   Start Steel Beasts
   Main Menu Select "Tutorials"
   Select your vehicle.



Some tutorials maybe generic. For example movement. You may wish to skip these if you have already completed them once.

Do not attempt to complete all tutorials for a particular vehicle in one sitting. The reason for this is that some are quite complex and you need to really understand them. This can take time.

Tank Range

You can practice your gunnery skills as often as you want.
   Choose "Tank Range" from the "Main menu".
   Choose a vehicle (Not all vehicles are included)
   You will appear inside the vehicle in the gunners position
   You must destroy 10 vehicles as fast as you can.
   You can NOT drive the vehicle
   The TC will designate targets
   Mission ends when all targets are destroyed.
   The enemy do NOT fire back

Results are published at the end of the mission.
   Hit percentage
   Average time to kill
   Etc.

Your score is given at the end of the session and goes to your "rating". Remember the profile you added earlier? You can go back as many times as you wish. If you get a bad score then do not worry as only your highest score is retained.



Instant Action
   Choose "Instant Action" from the main menu
   Choose a vehicle (Not all vehicles are included)
   You will appear in the gunners position.
   The enemy will keep on coming.
   You cannot use the "F8" view.

This is meant for practice. You can practice using the different positions within the vehicle as well as the terrain.

Voice/Comms setup

It is recommended NOT to use "voice activated" in TeamSpeak.

Ideally Have only Teamspeak routed to your headphones and the other sounds (arty, engine etc) routed to your main speakers.

It is very important during multiplayer sessions that you can hear your team mates clearly.
