  1. Thank you Schrullenhaft for your excellent and timely technical support. Windows 98! now that is legacy! Definitely got to get this game going. I've noticed some skin technicalities that are of interest. Also the editor seems straight forward. (Not that I've been able to create a mission yet.) Cheers,
  2. No success. E-license control panel not associated with anything thus locking the .exe's out. Hence I cannot even "unlicense" the PT-Boat install to my pc as registered during purchase. Have to deal with Zuggsoft support to see if they can offer any advice. At least I didn't pay a fortune for the software.
  3. Thanks for the super quick reply! This looks promising... DEP settings got some impossible programs to run for me before. (The original MSFFB2 configuration program for one!) I hope to post a success.
  4. Saw the videos and read the forums. Seemed like a simple "add privileges" to get the games working in win7. So went ahead and bought it. Did the default install to C:\Program Files (x86). After install the desktop icons were default windows so no surprises there. Went in and changed privileges and run as admin, changed ownerships etc to no avail. Uninstalled including the Xvid directory. (Manual uninstall.) Installed to C:\ this time to get around some of win7 privileges issues like many other games. (This time the path is C:\Battlefront\Akella\PT Boats). Still got the dialog box when trying to execute the executables. "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item." Fine... I've gone in and changed the run as admin settings, changed ownership to administrators, then user, to no avail. Checked that all admin and users have full permissions. I have full control of all the files except the 3 .exe files for the game. The editor comes up okay. Still cannot get around the denial on the .exe's. Anyone had any joy getting this game to run on windows 7?
  5. "Run as administrator" worked. What threw me was it would work fine if launched at the end of the install process. Many thanks!
  6. Just tried to install the 1.01 patch and came across the same PC re-license issue. Submitted a ticket. Reinstalled 1.00 and it works fine. Just everytime I install patch 1.01 it always asks for a license which means a faulty patch install as per the readme. Will advise once the problem is sorted so no-one else has to go through the frustrating install-uninstall-install-uninstall-install-uninstall...
  7. Need full steel road wheel pics please to compare.
  8. Agreed Praetori, you have to remind yourself that this is a table top war game, not a first person shooter graphical game engine. Rest easy knowing that all the nuances of combat will be accurately modelled, and with this game that is the most important factor. The game engine just can't cope with the eye candy that well, and most likely never will.
  9. I should've mentioned that I get those error messages too, but I click on continue and carry on. So the first error is where it all goes pear shaped. There are error log files in the log directory that will explain the error further. I would sit down and look at these further but I'm pretty sure it is an issue within the .exe itself and possibly newer versions of .NET. This app is not supported by 1C. Only through the very good grace of the venerable Dr. Jones that any SFS extractor has reached modders. For the benefit of the whole TOW and IL-2 community. He may revisit that app at some stage if he is so inclined but I am certain he would be a very busy man. I'm sure if you could speak russian you may have a shot at tracking down a fileslist.txt file for Kursk43 somewhere on the net. Cheers,
  10. This is as far as I get. (Pics then description.) I set the mission editor location by clicking on the elipse (3 dot) button on right to get the dialog box up. Then drill down and highlight the right directory and click ok. I set the extact location by clicking on the next elipse button to get the dialog box up. I'd created a directory called myextracts. Goto the menu, file, save. Enter you configuration filename, which will be an XML file. I've named mine myextractsettings.xml -> make sure you type in the .xml part to your filename and click save. Now you need to mount some SFS files. Goto menu, tools, mount to get the dialog box up. Click to highlight an SFS file and click open. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ IMAGE REMOVED DUE TO LIMITATION OF 5 IMAGES. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ If you go menu, tools, unmount, the dialog will show what SFS files have been mounted. I believe you need to keep mounting the SFS files to make them accessable. (I only get one shot at mounting a file so I save mysavesettings.xml file, close, reopen and mount the next new file. Repeat until all needed SFS files are mounted then close. Restart the extractor and go menu, files, load, and in the dialog box open your "myextractsettings.xml" (your filename). The white box on the left is a standard directory tree modal/display. I believe if it were working properly, that all the files named in the fileslist.txt file that match with the mounted SFS files will display in this tree box. You click to highlight the file you want, go menu, tools, extract. An bingo, your file is now in the "myextracts" directory. The top right of the program box is there to help drill down to find specific files displayed on the left hand side for selection to extract. The above pic shows what I get, that is where I am at, that is what I get for now. The add/remove dialog is when you right click on the tree box. If you get further please post. Cheers,
  11. Thanks for the Heads Up Knokke! Unfortunately didn't work. Gives me more time to work on other projects I guess. Maybe one day...
  12. Since migrating to Windows 7 64bit I have lost access to the usual tools for modding this great game. Would someone be kind enough to provide access to the 1.3.1 version of the ..data/local/en files please. (I have gone through all iterations of SFSextraction without success, that is why I am asking.) filelist.txt contents would be; (Some file references may not be relevent to Kursk43) data\local\en\ammo.utf8 data\local\en\award_desc.utf8 data\local\en\awards.utf8 data\local\en\credits.utf8 data\local\en\encdescription_armoredcar.utf8 data\local\en\encdescription_artillery.utf8 data\local\en\encdescription_car.utf8 data\local\en\encdescription_flak.utf8 data\local\en\encdescription_hmg.utf8 data\local\en\encdescription_spg.utf8 data\local\en\encdescription_tanks.utf8 data\local\en\epilogue.utf8 data\local\en\guns.utf8 data\local\en\hkeys.utf8 data\local\en\items.utf8 data\local\en\messages.utf8 data\local\en\months.utf8 data\local\en\names.utf8 data\local\en\ranks.utf8 data\local\en\skills_desc.utf8 data\local\en\strings.utf8 data\local\en\tips.utf8 data\local\en\units.utf8 Thanks!
  13. Do the modders of the Eastern Wind Extension mod have a website?
