    Hi all I've just gained access to STA 3.3 but am having an error when enabling the  aspect_16-9_STA3.1_v.8.81.

    If i enable this in JSGME it crashes the program at 84% loading with the following error "Exception core:
    001: Error initialization program."

    The game runs fine as long as i don't have that specific mod enabled.

    Any help would be great.



    My load order.

    Hi Lockie, it crashes before it gets to the start screen, so no mission at all. I get the loading screen after the Interplay video and then it simply closes the game and gives the error message above.

    That's because the new aspect 16:9 is experimental. Sorry for the inconvenience. OK, try this order:
    order:

    1. SSM2.7
    2. Polygons v.2.35
    3. STA3.3
    4. 4Gb patch. Manual installation! See details
    5.1 u09_MAY_UPD 2018
    5.2 u02_JUN_UPD 2018
    6.2. aspect_16-9_STA3.1_v.8.82 (monitor 16:9, 1920x1080) new user profile necessary.
    9. Weather mod (optional)
    10. All_missions_opened v.0.43

    PS
    There is one a biggest feature - redesigned mission with SU-85, campaign "The Soviet Armour".

    I've sent the password on PM.

    Thanks Lockie, that seems to have fixed it. Game now runs perfectly, no errors apart from a crash if i select the Otto Carius campaign, which i expected as i haven't donated towards it.

    Lockie, thanks'  Smile

    The skins were based upon these photos and the winter camo seems to have been applied by the crews members.

    In "u09_MAY_upd" file - "t28" by the address - "\data\k42\loc_rus\levels\LEVELS\tech_cfg" you need to fix the line:

    sig_gunner, s_camera_gunner_01, top_t28, 0.0, ;

    to

    sig_gunner, s_camera_gunner_01, tod_t28, 0.0, ;

    otherwise when using "aspect_16-9_STA3.2_v.8..." in missions T-28 throws out of the game

    It is a good note! in fact, the name "top_t28" is correct. "Aspect" has a wrong name.

    A training mission for "Puma" was created! User has a task to provide infantry attack with a smoke and fire cover. All he need to know it is pressing the keys "Z/X" to fire from launcher! Fighting




    Since teaching mission created I think we should assign all smoke mortars under the Gunner' authority.

    In the new autumn update, we'll see the newly redesigned  JS-3 tank with a simple cockpit! And guess what? Yaep - there will be a new mission: JS-3 vs Panther  ausf.A! Or may be ausf.F. Well, lemme think, which confrontation is more attractive Cool
    OK, let's have a look on some screennies alien bounce cyclops






    Also, there will be updated the numbers/letters/insignias on the tanks. They will became a bit of dirty.


    JS-3 cockpit still needs an adjustments, but at least we'll get an inner decor instead of a dark indefinite one.

    To say the truth the mission scenario is completely fantastic Smile
    In a short words:
    It is 10th May 1945, Prague, Czechoslovakia. The Soviet tanks of the 1st Ukrainian Front rushed towards Prague where the German bastion is still presented, based on the remnants of the 2nd SS Corps. Additional "give a hand" was made by the assembling group from the tank polygon Kummersdorf. This group went to the Prague and now took a rest in the village of Libeznice. BUT through this settlement was established a support pass of the Soviet 3rd Guards Tank Army and it was cut off by the German Kampfgruppen now. The group itself consisted of the Panther ausf.A and two experimental ausf.F, reinforced with a panzergrenadiers regiment placed on the APC SdKfz 251/1.
    Meanwhile, the Soviets has already built three newest heavy tanks JS-3 and badly needs to test it out under the real battle conditions!
    The task is: destroy the German battle group and open the pass to supply the Soviet forces.

    So, as u can see according to the scenario Panther ausf.D doesn't has any chance to be placed on Smile But u may easily replace it it in the editor Wink
    Moreover, I'd like to rely on your gift as a writer to prepare the briefing/history note!  Cool
    i must confess that a briefing/history note is the most hard work of the mission! soccer


    PS
    I must say the the newly updated Panther ausf.D is a real pearl of the STA mod! It looks perfect! I'll include one mission devoted to this tank in the campaign "Steel Beast".

    Couldn't help myself to post a couple screennies of the Panther ausf.D cockpit! Well, I've to confess it is candy, BUT it is a VERY SWEETY! The new cockpit will be included in the mod "Cockpit Pz.V ausf.A Panther". So, who already donated - those will have it!

    Need to check out the most famous mission with a Panther ausf.D It is Kursk 1943!  Cool

    PS
    I've to say: to get more immersion with a new cockpit - take a place of the driver!

    Mission N8 of the campaign "Combat epizodes" was completely re-designed and adopted to the STA format! Hope. we'll see it in the video by our "Golden Camera" Wink
    It is more challenged depends on the balance and enemy/allies experiences! User has under his control the "Tiger" late modification! Be prepared to see the "Stalin" tanks! happy
