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?"


[HUE] BOL and XP compatibility mode
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=--Cc5XJJEFA

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.

The 18nd NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

13.0 Deep Strike II [Combined Arms]

Image

"The Russian economy, stressed by the demands of war, confirms its leaders' worst fears. Economists tell the Defense Council that unless the war is a short, victorious one, the economy will collapse."

Act III: Battle Chess

"Exhausted by the furious pace of combat and the horrific losses, both sides are forced to re-evaluate their basic strategies. Fuel and ammunition are being consumed at fantastic rates, confirming the most pessimistic peacetime estimates.

At sea, reinforcement convoys have become vital prizes, to be protected or destroyed. Soviet strategy did not anticipate a long war and made no plans for a sustained campaign in the North Atlantic. Now forced to do so, Soviet attack subs and aircraft must operate at extreme range in an ocean ringed with hostile bases."

"Long-range Soviet naval aviation has been a powerful force for the Soviets, interfering with NATO convoys and thus reducing NATO's efforts to reinforce and support the ground war in Europe. NATO has made the removal of the SNA bomber force a top priority."

This scenario was inspired by the situation described in the "High Tide" compilation from Clash of Arms.

The 3rd NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

22.0 Young Tigers [H3.6]

Image

Sea of Dragons Battleset - The Chinese Sea

It did not take long for the full import of the U.S. withdrawal from the Philippines to become apparent. U.S. presence declined in the South China Sea and this allowed other navies greater freedom. The PLA(Navy), under strict orders from Beijing, stepped up its patrols around the Spratley archipelago. The Vietnamese and the Philippines vigorously protested this action, but not much was done to help them. By 1998, the Chinese felt confident enough to make a determined push for the whole of the island chain. By controlling the Spratleys, the PLA(Navy) would be in position to threaten busy shipping routes; the forces assigned there would also cover the Chinese invasion of the Philippines. Once the Philippines had fallen, no one would be able to oust the Chinese from their sea.

Much was carried out to ensure the smooth running of the initial stages of the operation. Vietnam was bribed into hamstringing the ASEAN response and the Philippine communist insurgency was expanded and financed by the PRC. Chinese Special Forces were clandestinely inserted to advise the guerrillas. All that was needed was a spark.

This scenario was inspired by the situation depicted in the Sea of Dragons publication from Clash of Arms.

1.0 SitRep:

The Thai fleet has set sail for the disputed region. This fleet is believed to be aiming for a rendezvous with other ASEAN fleets. A combined task force would be difficult to attack successfully, so it has been decided to attack the elements separately and sequentially.

The picture is much clearer now that ASEAN has thrown back its cloak of deceit. Indonesian and Malaysian forces met at a rendezvous point and are now heading north. They must be stopped from linking up with the Royal Thai Navy.

"The Russian economy, stressed by the demands of war, confirms its leaders' worst fears. Economists tell the Defense Council that unless the war is a short, victorious one, the economy will collapse."

"While the strike on the Kola may not have been a complete success, they have taken much of the pressure off the convoys and their escorts."

Duration: 24 hours

***** Flash ***** Flash *****

SSSSSS 053000Z20Jul88 SSSSSS

1.0 SitRep:

A French carrier battle group is assigned to convoy escort duty, reflecting both their increased value and the concerns of the merchant mariners.

Almost as soon as the convoy is clear of the continental air defense zone, it is attacked by SNA, but using new and imaginative tactics. French fighter pilots fly near-continuous patrols against reconnaissance aircraft, bombers, and the long-range, high-altitude missiles they fire.

2.0 Intelligence:

Soviet submarines appear to be allowing SNA strikes to roll-back the escorts before commencing their own attacks.

In response to the increased threat from SNA, the Super Etendards have been ferried ashore and replaced with an additional squadron of Crusaders.

3.0 Orders:

Escort the convoy past the gap in land-based aerial coverage.

Move towards RefPt UKADF as the maximum extent of land-based fighter protection. Ensure an average 15 knot speed of advance.

4.0 Rules of Engagement:

Warning level Red, Weapons Free

Engage all Warsaw Pact units.

Special weapons NOT <<repeat>> NOT authorized. Report all first use of CBR weapons to NCA via Flash protocol.

The 2nd NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

15.0 Mining Mission

Image


"The Russian economy, stressed by the demands of war, confirms its leaders' worst fears. Economists tell the Defense Council that unless the war is a short, victorious one, the economy will collapse."

Act III: Battle Chess

"Exhausted by the furious pace of combat and the horrific losses, both sides are forced to re-evaluate their basic strategies. Fuel and ammunition are being consumed at fantastic rates, confirming the most pessimistic peacetime estimates.

At sea, reinforcement convoys have become vital prizes, to be protected or destroyed. Soviet strategy did not anticipate a long war and made no plans for a sustained campaign in the North Atlantic. Now forced to do so, Soviet attack subs must operate at extreme range in an ocean ringed with hostile bases."

"Mines have always been an important method of slowing a naval force and restricting its movements. They have sunk their share of ships, but a mine's greater effect is the effort the enemy has to exert to continue his operations. A suspected minefield has to be investigated by specialist mine-hunting and -sweeping forces. Once the mined area is located, it has to either be swept or avoided. If the area cannot be avoided, the area is closed until it can be swept. Both sides expect the other to mine their ports and other restricted waters. How well they are prepared for that event is another story."

Duration: 24 hours

This scenario was inspired by the situation described in the "High Tide" compilation from Clash of Arms.This scenario was written for the PlayersDB

***** Flash ***** Flash *****

SSSSSS 010000Z24Jul88 SSSSSS

1.0 SitRep:

Even though the major portion of the Soviet Red Banner Northern Fleet has sortied from its bases, once a vessel has expended its ammunition, it has to return to port to re-arm. This is especially true for the vessels armed with the large, ship-killing surface-to-surface missiles such as the Oscar PLARKs, Kirov, Slava, and Kresta I RKRs and Sovremennyy EMs. The initial series of battles have caused much of the Soviet Navy to now need re-supply.

2.0 Intelligence:

Several Soviet ships have been photographed enroute to Murmansk.

3.0 Orders:

NATO high command orders the Northern Fleet port entrances to be mined. One such field is the inlet leading to Murmansk.

Penetrate Soviet waters and lay a minefield of twenty Submarine-Launched Mobile Mines (SLMM). Withdraw from the area without being detected. Do not engage Soviet vessels within 10nm of the mined area to avoid drawing attention to your presence on a mining operation. It will take 1 hour within the mine area to lay the weapons.

The French submarine, Rubis, will be in support and is available to draw attention away from Providence.

4.0 Rules of Engagement:

Warning level Red, Weapons Free

Avoid engagement with Soviet vessels within 10nm of the mined area.

Special weapons NOT <<repeat>> NOT authorized. Report all first use of CBR weapons to NCA via Flash protocol.
