FS-WWI Plane Pack 3 Patch Released!

Recommended Posts

It's here! Just finished it up today. :D


Here's the readme (And please actually read it):


**FS-WWI Plane Pack 3 Patch**


This is a small Patch to fix some issues in FS-WWI Plane Pack 3. While not all the issues were fixed, a majority of them were. Also, a new aircraft was added, the Albatros B.II. It is far enough in the completion stage to be added to Plane Pack 3. Expect another patch in the future addressing some more bugs and model tweaks.


To Install: Extract to your main Fighter Squadron folder. When you are done, please add the following line to your keyboard.inp file (Located where you installed the latest Wings with Wires Patch) under the section 'Other flight controls':


cmdSetBrakes = Bounce B


The above line is for the brake stick on the Albatros B.II. To edit the Keyboard.inp file, open it up in Wordpad and re-save (Be sure however that you DON'T re-save it as a word document!!)

You MUST have the FS-WWI Plane Pack 3 installed

Argon, I will be getting WW2 Fighters, SDOE soon. I ordered it from Ebay thanks to Dagger's help. I was wondering, what sequence should I install these patches and addons once the base software, SDOE, is installed?


Also, is there any other changes I need to make to files in the game besides the B-stick one?


Thanks, pc

Will a P3 1ghz machine with a radeon 8500 64 mbDDR video card and 512 MB PC133 ram be enough to run the 16bit textures?


I install those textures after installing the 8bit correct? They are overwritten by the 16bit?


Hopefully in the next 2 or 3 days, Ill be flyin' over the Somme, hehe. Hey, is there flak in this sim? How well does the AI pilots perform? Any significant problems with multiplayer?

Should be fine. :) They install in extracted folders which overwrite the compressed 8 bit textures. There is flak, and the AI does ok. :)
