You do what you want. I can't stop you from doing a review even if I wanted. The team put it out there so it's subject to review. Personally it's not a huge leap in the mod world. Just updated big time to SF2 standards. You want to do something, write something about Eburger and how he does wonders with updating SF1mods to SF2 standards.

We appreciate the interest in doing a review. Would it be possible to get a few days to see if any major bugs shake out as users get their hands on it?

 

We did perform extensive testing before release, but with a mod of this size it's almost inevitable that we missed things that intrepid users here at CA will find.

 

We can can get patches out very quickly -- within hours if the problem is simple enough.

 

Thanks,

So which TW sim do we need for this guys? I recently uninstalled Strike Fighters 2 because I did not like the fictional countries and campaign.....LOL

 

 

 

Cheers,

 

 

 

Andrew.

You need at minimum SF2E patched to Mar2012. All topics related to installation are covered in the ReadMe.

To install and play this mod, you must have the following installed:

 

SF2 VERSION: Strike Fighters 2: Europe (SF2E)

 

The best version IMHO. And no fictional countries if you worry about that ;-)

Exactly my words too. I´ve been waiting this mod since I moved from WOX to SF2 series, so this is like X-mas for me!

 

Once again thanks to you all involved in the process of making this great mod!:drinks:

A big thank you to all the team :drinks:

 

I have just taken off in a F-14 from a moving carrier in the middle of a moving battlegroup, brilliant :grin:

 

Thanks again

Much appreciated. We've found a few minor things so far. I'll probably be uploading a HotFix package in the next day or so.

dsawan:

 

The first thing that strikes me is that error message looks like the kind of crash you get when there's a mismatch between the version of the .EXE you're running and the underlying patch level. If I forget to re-generate a custom .EXE after applying a new update from ThirdWire, that non-updated .EXE bombs out with the kind of error message you're seeing.

 

The second thing that catches my attention is the .EXE name, which has a hyphen and several spaces. Although Windows should be able to handle that file name (and the associated folder name for your Mods folder), I still occasionally see problems with those kinds of file and folder names. That's why I always avoid spaces in such names.

 

Somewhere, somehow, that EXE is not finding what it needs or is finding the wrong thing when it runs.

pureblue. this is what id di exactly. First, i made a copy of sf2 europe exe file and started her up and exited out so that under users, dsawan, the mod folder shows up. then I renamed the mod folder,the exe under thirdwire directory and the options at the very end otherwise, it will cause probs. that way all 3 files have the same name when playing. then i did the ODS files manually into their respective locations. Again, I nomrally do the s2 merged exe but when I read the readme it said sf2europe as well. Maybe i should have done sf2 europe with the 2nd patch but the readme says otherwise. SF2europe with the 2nd update is what I usually use. So yea, I guess its an exclusive install for ODS.

I patched to march 2012 the other day and it ran successfully. I was going from June 2011 to march 2012. However, i just checked the file detail when you right click the exe for the modded folder and it says date modified June 2011. and product version 11.6.2.23. Do you think it did not patch correctly?

Oh, my word....

 

Get this mod before someone figures out they can charge money for it.

 

Have all the games and just used one of the other mod folders. Worked like a champ.

seeing ODS in Series2 gives one indication how the series (and modders) evolved, right?
