So there is no falklands battleset for Harpoon Ultimate Commanders Edition but there is a Falklands Battleset for Harpoon Ultimate ANW? That's a shame :-(

I have recently bought Harpoon UE. I am trying to work out the best version to play (if at all; with Naval War: Arctic Circle out maybe Harpoon has been usurped? or is Naval War not as 'deep' as Harpoon? what about GCB?).

Anyway at first sight, the number of versions of Harpoon is confusing, What should someone start out with (as of April 2012)?
HUE, I have read, has 240 anomalies, ANW slightly less, and 363 is the most reliable, correct ?

Does that mean 363 is bug free, or does it also have 60 or so anomalies ?
(363 does not have a screen resolution that suits my Widescreen laptop, nor can I get the ini installer to install ..(it cannot register 2 files))

So for a novice, like myself, is it going to make a lot of difference if I just use HUE ? With the complete PlayersDB are the anomalies in HUE a) resolved or at least b) tolerable ?
In other words which is the best Harpoon version considering I am using PlayersDB ? (considering i am a novice)

Lastly, manually editing the ini for 363, do I point the Battleset folder to BattleSet or Battlset (with Player'sDB installed)?
Where can I get info about what goes on in the ini with regards PlayersDB ?

I have just installed the latest version of the Players DB and when I run the game and try to load a scenario I get an error message which states the scenario is a later version than the program and the scenario will not load. I have the latest version of harpoon ANW can anyone help?

Please review Installing the PlayersDB. You have installed the wrong version of the PlayersDB for the game version you are trying to run.

There are 3 versions of Harpoon: H3 (v3.6.3), ANW (v3.9.4), and HUE (v3.10). Judging from the error message you are receiving, you probably installed the PlayersDB v3.10 into your ANW v3.9.4 game folder. When you try to run the ANW v3.9.4 game, it cannot load the v3.10 scenario because the file was created by the HUE v3.10 editor (a later release of game.)

Welcome aboard, shipmate. :)
