As long as ships do not need to move in the HUD, that should be fine.

Just posted my newest scenario for Harpoon, my thirteenth of the year, with an American carrier battle group facing off against Iranian and Pakistani forces in the Arabian Sea.

Database issue (?)...Super Frelon

Found a database problem like this within the first ten minutes. Of course, I implemented the HUD Scenario Doctrine and immediately stopped playing at the first database bug.

Instead of Australia, the next scen might involve something that actually works.

The newest update to the HUD-4 is now available...

http://harpgamer.com/harpforum/index...780-hud4-v111/

It continues Gunny's process of updating the data in the database, fixing bugs (while a couple of really stubborn ones remain, they've virtually all been squashed at this point), etc.

There are a number of very good third party databases available for Harpoon ANW, but the HUD-4 is the official one.

Sigh, it's the same one with the same bugs.

Gunny,

Files are 4/01/2013. Looks like the upload did not take.

Looks like he's not even able to post new files much less fix the pre-existing bugs.

You can wriggle all you like, but you can't hide or distract from the HUD known bugs.

Finally finished Western Lemur (2018), my newest Harpoon scenario (#14 for 2013)...

http://harpgamer.com/harpforum/index...rn-lemur-2018/

The E.U. vs. rebels in Madagascar. It's tougher than it sounds because the rebels have a lot of very basic AAA and if you lose too many aircraft, you lose the scenario, even if you manage to destroy the mission objectives.

Enjoy!

A technical difficulty at Harpgamer prevented the newest HUD-4 from being uploaded properly a few days ago. The new version of the database is now up and ready for download...

That's the first time Guerin's incompetence has been called a 'technical difficulty' since folks post files here regularly. They post and then download to check. Not all that technical or difficult.

Anyway, I've checked the latest version and find the same simple errors uncorrected such as:

The 'other' one installs and works properly out of the box, and if you have problems and post on Matrix, someone will help you and/or point you to a youtube made by the 'bad' people on how to do things.

If you have trouble with HUD4 and post on Matrix, good luck.

Unhappy

The colossal magnitude of this fumble simply cannot be ignored:

Mark openly admits that his scenarios have bugs, knows exactly which ones they are, and STILL refuses to correct any of them. Hapless players are left to, "work around the two or three weapons that don't fire properly".

It is abundantly clear from his own words that no matter what problem is reported, it will never be fixed. This is the underlying attitude of HUD and the primary reason why no one plays HUD scenarios.

My fifteenth scenario of 2013...

It is 1996 and a civil war is raging in the Gambia. The E.U. is concerned that the rebels have committed war crimes and have decided to assist the Gambian government. They must destroy a bridge near the city of Banjul and take out rebel forces in and around the country's only airport. They also have to do this without blowing up any schools, or the American embassy, by accident.

(This is another scenario where you need to take out ground targets with limited air assets, but don't forget you have some nice artillery on a couple of your ships.)

http://harpgamer.com/harpforum/index...e-gambia-1996/

I hope people enjoy it. I also hope more people will write new scenarios for Harpoon ANW themselves.
