Harpoon Commanders' Edition demo now available


This demo revisits a storied part of Harpoon's history via the USNI battleset. Harpooner players Brad, Tony, and Ralf, with the help of the beta testing group, have re-made the five original USNI scenarios. The scenarios take advantage of game capabilities added since the original USNI version of the game was released more than 15 years ago! Not only that, but the weapons of war more closely match the real-world weapons thanks to post Cold-War release of information and the hard work of Brad in the DB editing department. These are no longer easy, nor introductory, scenarios, be prepared!

In addition to the ten USNI scenarios (there are two versions of each scenario, one for play as the Soviet side, one for the NATO side) you will find twelve scenarios in the WestPac battleset. There you will also find an introductory scenario, "1.0 Beginner Walk-Thru Scenario" that will help you grasp the game controls and some of the new features in HCE such as more variable radar RCS, submarine signatures, and land warfare between tanks and other vehicles.

System Requirements & Technical Information:

* The demo will operate thru January 15th, 2009. We hope to make further downloads available after that time.
* The demo runs on Windows 2000, XP, and Vista (both 32-bit and 64-bit flavors).
* Installer size is about 28MB. The installation takes about 75MB of disk space.
* Installing the demo will not affect your full installations of prior HC versions nor will it affect a full HCE installation since the demo is installed to a different directory path.
* The demo executes a rudimentary check to see if your system clock has been set back in time to defeat the demo expiration mechanism. Some computers that haven't had clocks set back will not pass this test. The full HCE game does not have this check so even if you can't run the demo, you will be able to run the full HCE game.
* Using the uninstaller will remove all files, registry settings, and shortcuts created by the installer. It will also remove all saved games in the HCDemo directory.
