So there is no falklands battleset for Harpoon Ultimate Commanders Edition but there is a Falklands Battleset for Harpoon Ultimate ANW? That's a shame :-(

I have recently bought Harpoon UE. I am trying to work out the best version to play (if at all; with Naval War: Arctic Circle out maybe Harpoon has been usurped? or is Naval War not as 'deep' as Harpoon? what about GCB?).

Anyway at first sight, the number of versions of Harpoon is confusing, What should someone start out with (as of April 2012)?

HUE, I have read, has 240 anomalies, ANW slightly less, and 363 is the most reliable, correct ?

Does that mean 363 is bug free, or does it also have 60 or so anomalies ?

(363 does not have a screen resolution that suits my Widescreen laptop, nor can I get the ini installer to install ..(it cannot register 2 files))

So for a novice, like myself, is it going to make a lot of difference if I just use HUE ? With the complete PlayersDB are the anomalies in HUE a) resolved or at least B) tolerable ?

In other words which is the best Harpoon version considering I am using PlayersDB ? (considering i am a novice)

Lastly, manually editing the ini for 363, do I point the Battleset folder to BattleSet or Battlset (with Player'sDB installed)?

Where can I get info about what goes on in the ini with regards PlayersDB ?

ORIGINAL: Suul

I am unable to get a database to open. I can't find H3CD.

The H3RE gives me a run time error after pressing one of the "buttons"

DB portion of the scenario editor seems to not be working. I use the drop down and I can get a long bullet button list of equipment, but there are no other buttons in the window. I then have to close the program and start it over.

OK, here's a request. You may already have done this in a video, but I think there's a Harpoon scenario ("Return to the Kola Peninsula"??) about a nuclear strike on the Kola Peninsula by B-52s and A-6s. Sort of end of the world, but I'd really like to see this scenario run by somebody who knows what he's doing

"FYI...if anyone wants to, please feel free to post After Action Reports...I'd be very interested to hear what people have to say about the scenario"

This was initially and primarily meant as an After-Action Report for the Celebes Sea Slam scenario written by Mark Gellis. However, it also covers the reliability and level of function found within databases like the HUD4.

That has already been caught and corrected. Sorry for the delay.

But thank you for taking the time and effort to view the video. It's nice to see your ongoing interest with this game. :)

Well, I don't get much time to look at your videos, never mind play the game.

With terms like 'bug infested database', I'm still not sure whether you're promoting the game or some breakaway version of it.

The game is sold and distributed with the bug-infested HUD4 database.

There are other more functional and user-friendly databases created by third-party users. This particular scenario author doesn't realize that the majority of Harpoon players shun and avoid the HUD4 (and its associated scenarios) whenever possible.
