    Harpoon for Dummies


    In response to ongoing pleas for player assistance, a Harpoon for Dummies channel has opened on YouTube to help Harpoon players navigate the complexities of the game and to deliver the best possible playing experience. These series of video tutorials will continue to be written as needed and as requested. Many thanks to Ian Bowes (a.k.a. Spelk), amongst others, for speaking up and specifically requesting such videos be made and for the kind assistance he provided in reviewing them.

    Presently, videos are available to demonstrate:

    1) Installation procedures for the PlayersDB and scenarios
    2) Basic game functions through a comprehensive tutorial for H3
    3) Thorough use of the scenario editor for H3
    4) Thorough use of the scenario editor for ANW
    5) A complete sample scenario session

    Folks who have never played a Harpoon scenario can watch the complete Sierra Strike: The 1st Team scenario run from beginning to end:

    Game tutorials on YouTube can be very helpful. I wasn't even aware they existed until I stumbled across a series of them for Hearts of Iron II.

    My hats off to everyone who makes more of them available to us gamers.

          I would really like to see some more AAR-style scenario run-thorughs, as the Sierra Strike or Advanced Guard. I am really learning much from these.

            Could you post a scenario play-through where you use the "missions" feature of the game? I noticed that you haven't used that feature in? any of your scenario tutorials yet (except for the tutorial of course). Thanks.

                ORIGINAL: CaptPiluso

                I find very difficult to play this scen from USA side, only 4 F-15s a pair of Orions and a DDG are quickly attacked and burned by lots of planes that seem to come from coastal Venezuela air bases.
                I set the DDG to Puerto La Cruz and launch a P3 and then F-15s to attack enemy planes flying near my ship,but they are quickly shot down.
                Any ideas ??

                      Question about the AI: How come the are so generous with their emitting radar? This becomes especially clear in the dawn patrol scenario where it seems almost to easy(note seems, im not saying it is..). If they have link you would expect only one of the contacts to radiate and just link the information over to the others.

                            another video After-Action Report for Dawn Patrol round II (USSR) [MP] between HermanH and MartinB has been added the YouTube Harpoon for Dummies channel. This time, MartinB and HermanH have switched sides and both made video recordings of the battle. Viewers can watch both sides of the same battle and see what the respective commanders were thinking at the same point in time during the action. Hope to see Martin's matching video soon. Normally, we would just use ANW's VCR function. Unfortunately, it currently results in a Crash to Desktop.
