Any HArpoon 3 Players out there?If so there is an update available with new ships.

The longstanding naval warfare simulator is now vastly improved with new features and even more stability

Matrix Games and Advanced Gaming Systems (www.advancedgaming.biz) are excited to announce the release of the latest update for their venerable naval warfare sim, Harpoon 3: Advanced Naval Warfare. Having gone through multiple iterations and improvements over the years, this latest incremental update brings dozens of changes and improvements in addition to multiple new features. These new features will please gamers with an even more streamlined game interface and further tweaked and improved gameplay, reinforcing Harpoon 3’s already impressive level of realism.

Specifically, this latest update release will add spectator support to players who have been eliminated in multiplayer in addition to substantially improved targeting calculations to be even more realistic. Also, the latest update includes a number of new hotkeys to speed up navigating Harpoon 3’s interface and issuing commands. Full details on the large variety of improvements that come with this incremental update are available from the file’s readme.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Harpoon 3 provides the most accurate naval simulation available to the public while still presenting accessible and engaging gameplay. This latest update is yet another improvement towards striking the delicate balance between the realism our gamers want and the fun gameplay they deserve.â€

Harpoon 3 is the culmination of decades of development and fan support, resulting in the most comprehensive, realistic, and accurate simulation of modern combined air and naval operations available to the gaming public. Harpoon 3 gives the player an opportunity to manage some of the most advanced air and naval assets available in the world, putting them in the middle of many historical and ‘what if’ scenarios. Players will have the chance to battle it out against a variet of enemies using technology from all of the premier naval powers of the day: Iranian Revolutionary Guard in the Persian Gulf, re-live Operation El Dorado Canyon, strike at the heart of Libya, guard the Greenland-Iceland-UK gap to stop a Soviet naval invasion of the Atlantic, or stalk unwary U.S. shipping in a Soviet Akula-class submarine.

Thanks for that Andy, I've got the original Harpoon but its on 5.25 disc so can't do anything with it.

Had Harpoon 4 on advanced order then they cancelled it, I presume that this latest offering includes the bits of 4 that they had completed.

Did you get your Fleet Command working on XP?

thanks lamri, will do some work next time and look at the website. Any luck with repairing your computer? Tried Navyfield yet?
Lost all hope mate and did a format

However, I am now getting to grips with Vista Ultimate and it totally rox
but i'm still putting stuff back on it though. I've found that quite a few programs don't work with Vista that were fine with XP Pro SP2, like ZoneAlarms, although that was going anyway for letting the trojans in to start with!
Got Nod32 now, effing brilliant! Not let a virus past it for 6 years so I was told by a friend (i'd never heard of it before)

Anyhoo, not tried Navyfield yet mate, to be honest i'd be suprised if it works on Vista. Still got a coupla hundred crap programs to re-install (like PSP, CS etc etc)


Sorry for to hear about your loss, I hope you didnt lose andy pictures etc, I have once, bloody nasty. Glad your back online mate. Will get Harpoon 3 this weekend and report back.


I recently got Harpoon 3, haven't spent a lot of time on it, but first impressions are a pretty un-user friendly interface. Just wondering why they didn't keep the old windows style one.
