Flight nights...

Recommended Posts

OK all you SF, WOV, and WOE people...lets get together and fly one night per week. We can take a vote and decide which night and time is do-able for the largest number of us.

 

There is even "talk" of establishing a unified library of mods to play with, since I know all of us here love the addons.

Crickets...

 

...I can actually here some! Just kidding. This is one of the more touchy parts of WOE/WOV/SFP1.

Yes, and I am hearing the occasional tree frog too.

 

Seriously, Co-op missions are quite fun!! C'mon People!!

For the last couple of nights it has been myself, StreakEagle, Tallart, and Kirk flying co-op missions in WOV. We have had some great fun.

I'd like to get in on this, but I don't know what to do to get a multiplay setup. Any pointers?

 

 

Requirements, Software:

 

WOV, either by itself or merged with WOE (stop laughing, Streaky) CLEAN (no addons) and patched up to current standards

 

Hamachi (freeware peer to peer networking program)

 

TeamSpeak (also freeware) tuned to the CombatAce frequency.

 

Requirements, Hardware:

 

Headset or PC microphone for Teamspeak

 

Other Requirements:

 

Patience and a sense of humor. Readiness for challenging squinty-eyed virtual neck swivelling G-pulling fun, and willingness to get killed your fair share. Willingness to laugh about the myriad ways there are to bust your ass.

Last night there were six of us running co-op games. Great stuff.

 

Hope more of you will join in the fun.

Historically (I have hosted SFP1 multiplayer for YEARS), if there is going to be any body online at all, the 8-10 PM eastern time frame mentioned above is the best time to hang out.

Sometimes weekends were busy... such as Sunday nights.

Usually Friday and Saturday nights are dead.

Monday thru Thursday is pot luck: 0-12 (typically 2 or 3) people popping up between Hamachi (my streakserver1 network and some VFMA 531 networks), CombatAce Teamspeak, and Hyperlobby.

I'd love to hook-up more for co-ops(I'm less interested in straight dogfight). I tried hamachi, but i took it off as it was not agreeing with my settings and had disdabled my ability to connect with Hyperlobby(I prefer to play here). I'd sure like to see a dedicated server for WoV that connected through Hyperlobby.

I have a question...is it possible to have a clean install AND an add-on install? Probably not huh? Unless a sectioned off part of my hard-drive?

Absolutely!

 

Actually, the crowd that has been flying the most lately are really laid back. I personally like to help people out with their flying...nothing quite so rewarding as seeing someone you have worked with steadily improve.

Buzzard,

 

Unfortunately, Hamachi is the only way we are able to reliably play co-op games online. Hyperlobby works pretty well for dogfights, but that's it.

Yes - it you mean this:

 

 

One way is to install the game,

Patch it fully,

 

Make a copy of the entire game folder,

 

Call it something like WOV_SP4_Modded or whatever,

 

Then run your extra add on game from the .exe from within that new folder you have just created

 

The game doesnt use the registry much so you can create as many installs from the original as you like

 

You have to do this for any campaigns you want to install anyway btw
