I was wondering if anyone could give me an estimate on the difficulty level of downloading and running this mod. I just checked out a website where it could be downloaded from and noticed that some other program was required/recommended to download it. Just the fact that another program was involved got me feeling a bit nervous as I am a complete computer illiterate (it took me a few months to just get Tracker up and running properly - and I still don't really know what I am doing as I try to use it).

Is this going to be a project that is going to frustrate the heck out of me? Or is it worth it to have the added level of sophistication and accuracy it offers?

Before anyone responds, just remember, this is the guy who has to have his wife check the voicemail on his cell phone and open up books on Kindle because he can't figure out how they work.

I didn't have a hard time getting DBB up and running. I still havent figured out Tracker. The instructions are pretty good just pull up the instruction page and read it as you go the the install. I am also Computer Illiterate. Good luck. It is a different game. You will like it when you get it up and running. DBB team did good.

As a brick carrying Luddite, I had no problems uploading DBB and after doing so Tracker ran OK for the first time in months.

I am in June 42 (Just fought Midway but in between Suva and Ndeni, same result!) and only have a few complaints (as always) but am enjoying the fact I have to work harder to keep the oil and beans at the front.

BabesLite-A might be your best bet, Icedawg. you get all the 'little ships', but it's just one zipfile that you d/l, open and extract to your WitPAE 'SCEN' folder.

BL-B, & DBB-B & -C, are a bit more complex, where you also have to d/l map files.
