I am guessing I did something stupid, but I am stumped, so thought I would ask here.

Downloaded and installed game.
Downloaded Beta patch from here and installed.
Downloaded SeaBee (which is awesome!) and used to create a shortcut that points to Beta2

Started game from the shortcut and everything loads fine, but on the initial pick opponent menu there is no option to start a new game. There is only load a save game, of which it shows no saves available. Otherwise I can operate all other toggles.

Appreciate any help or ideas. I have been following AAR thread for years and am finally focused on getting this loaded and working

You have to select a scenario first in order to get the option to start a new game.

Now I feel really silly but thank you for the response. Indeed scenario selection first was the answer. sorry for the silly question.

I do want to thank those who made the Beta and the SeaBee app. Great stuff and very helpful

Reading section 2.7 of the manual would really have helped you.
