Have the grafix improved since I last updated 2 years ago?

Perhaps take 30mins to download and install and see if whatever your specific graphics issue was, has been improved.

You don't tell us what your issue was so its a bit hard to comment.

Never had any issues, was just curious if it looks better as I ponder getting back into it.. .currently running v 2.483.

If I upgrade will existing code meter stick work?

Ah sorry - thought you had something specific in mind.

2.483 - Let me see no more Infantry sprites, a bunch more vehicles.

Maybe have a look at this: https://youtu.be/BSrFaVOyu8c

or the various other "In game" videos here (just pick ones dated after January 2016):

You'd need the "old license upgrade" option in the eSim web store. If you run into problems during the license activation (two possible sources of error), please contact me.


Coming back to your question about improved graphics, the changes are massive. You'd still "recognize" it of course, but pretty much everything has changed, I mean, version 2.4 is from 2009, and we haven't been sitting on our hands for the last nine years. A quick search on YouTube should confirm my statement, if you look at the date of creation when watching the one or other Steel Beasts video. Even on the Steel Beasts channel you can still see version 2.5 videos (with already improved lighting over 2.4), 3.0 videos, and 4.0 videos. Each of these version changes brought significant improvements to the visuals. I never promoted those improvements aggressively because they basically speak for themselves.

I first joined up to Steelbeasts at 2.4 with the Codemeter stick from back then, I'm now running the latest version 4.023 with my licence on the same old Codemeter stick, so, yes it should work.

At least it can be made to.
You may need to update the CM stick's firmware at some point. This requires the latest CM runtime software to be installed ... which happens after installing SB pro PE 4.023, or by downloading and installing it directly from the CodeMeter support site. Open the CodeMeter Control Center, (on the left) select the stick, then click the circular arrow button (on the right) to start the procedure, and follow the on-screen instructions (which basically are: "Don't touch anything until it's over")

So, that isn't too complicated. Maybe you have done it before already.

Next thing is to order the upgrade license. Since you are starting from SB Pro PE 2.4, the "old upgrade" option is required which will essentially put a 3.0 license on your stick, and a 4.0 license. Here you need to keep in mind that the 4.0 license requires the 3.0 license to be on the stick already, so you need to unselect the 4.0 entry on the ticket on the first activation attempt. Once completed, activate a second time to add the 4.0 upgrade, and that's it.

UNLESS you are one of those special cases (1st generation CM stick with no license upgrade later). In which case the attempt to activate the ticket will generate an "internal error". If that is the case with you, please contact me. It's easy to fix but requires my assistance.

Technically yes, but you'll notice that there are a number of virtual units that have access to a server version that has this limit lifted.
So, larger multiplayer sessions happen several times a week. SteelBeasts.com has an event calendar function (with, I think, time zone adjustment), so you can figure out when a certain event will be open for you to join.

Can I pay with a visa or Mastercard that you buy in stores you know like $100 prepaid cards?

Visa and MC are both accepted. I know of no reason that we would refuse prepaid cards but then again the actual verification is done by a different company. Our shop only receives green or red light and proceeds or aborts the transaction based on that verdict.
