From Gravi's Facebook:
- updated to the recent version of GTOS engine
- international version (Eng/Rus in one package; determined from the OS language)
- slightly modified interface and adjusted game mechanics
- revised Iran battlefield and training battlefields
- M60 and T-62 interactive cockpit
- M60 and T-62 driver night vision devices added

If you bought the game earlier, simply redownload it in your library.

How does one install it? After download, one ends up with three files, "launch", "sabow_setup_feb15q_int-1.bin", and "sabow_setup_feb15q_int-2.bin". No installer comes up, and launch does not do anything and is not names launch.exe or anything.

Great to see, does this mean you own the game again andrey? Didn't have a close look at the forums over the last months...

I did that a few times, and it failed each time. The installer just downloaded the files and then quietly shut itself down without initiating an install sequence.

Maybe your anti-virus is blocking it? All worked fine here, just after download the installation started automatically.

1) You download installer (.exe file)
2) Save it
3) Start it (this .exe)
4) It download game files (takes a long time with progress bar)
5) And after that nothing happens?

Its right?

That was right. Fourth try was fine. No idea why, nothing changed otherwise.

All gravi games hate force AA on. It has its own way to do this built into the game and over riding those setting gets the fuzzy bad drug trip.

Please read game manual (docs\support\01_tank_manual.pdf) page 6, chap 1.3.

I strongly recommend to turn off all the bugs and glitches "features" that video card manufacturers offer in their drivers smile.

May be antivirus software or UAC?
Maybe need to access as an administrator?

P.S. Look where it unzip files and try to run it manually?

I had the earlier version of SABOW from GamersGate. I deleted it when the new version came out. But each time I try to download the new version, my AVG anti-virus software pops up a warning of the Win32/Heur virus.

Anybody else getting this response? Is it a false positive?

It's quite common case for such programs as funky antiviruses.

Howdy,

Damn, blew up Graviteam Tactics install as it installed right over it. Now I have to remember how I got the thing installed in the first place for both of them.

I think this took a long time, if I remember correctly. Any advice would be appreciated.

S!

I strongly apologize for this. There was an error in the setup configuration that wasn't noticed. The corrected setup files will be uploaded on GamersGate in few days. Until then check the installation path to not point to the GTOS path.
