SF2 ODS Aircraft and Screen Upgrade Pack 2018


This pack updates, upgrades and\or fixes(?) some the Forces configuration in the original release of Operation Dessert Storm (ODS) by eburger68. If you don't already have eburger68's excellent Operation Desert Storm Pack - I highly recommend it!
 
-------------------------------------------------------------
What's included in this mod pack?
-------------------------------------------------------------
I upgraded some of the planes from the ODS pack with some of the planes from the following packs. Also fixed some issues with the F-15C squadron configuration in the Campaign INI files. 
Added my 1920x1080 Menu and Campaign screens...

-------------------------------------------------------------
Installation:
-------------------------------------------------------------
!! First and always - BACKUP! Don't chance it!

Upgraded one my favorite Campaign Pack with some recent plane upgrades. This pack updates, upgrades and fixes some of the planes that came with the SF2 ODS Campaign Pack. This pack is for ODS only as I followed the original naming convention and file locations specific to the ODS pack. These planes are available for non-ODS packs from the links included in the pack description and readme.

 

Enjoy!

Wow, thanks for this updated package, Viper!  I must apologise because by mistake I rated the file with 4-stars instead of 5. Anyway, I hope I'll manage to find some free time in the coming month to try it and play SF2 again. I must resume modding as well, for the ODS - Iran/Iraq war terrain.

Wrong RSAF F-15C markings

Back in the 90's, they used the big green RSAF sign on the nose.

The new grey markings are a recent (early 2000's or so) change.

Crusader!

 

I love your work! Thank you so much! 

 

I will upload v2.1 with a new F-15C_RSAF. Let me know if that is more accurate. We (The Mudhen Team) would greatly appreciate it if you could take a look at some of our other F-15 Packs. Any advise on the INI and skin files would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks!

      Hi guys, i have a very big issue regarding one of my favourite games of all time: Strike Fighters: Project 1.
      I play this beautiful old game on my PC and i run it pretty well at lowest settings and 1920x1080p (i had ALSO to change "default graphic card option" to  my high-performances NVIDIA graphic card, due to the fact that the game heavily lags if i run it with the default graphic card option, even if it's all set on lowest settings).
      After i figured out this little issue, the game runs pretty smoothly and at an high framerate so, what's the problem?
      The problem is that whenever i hit or shoot down a plane or i look at an explosion, the game freezes for a couple of seconds...
      So i don't know what to do and why this happens…   
      Is that because Strike Fighters: Project 1 is too old for a modern medium-high end PC? (I used to play it also on my previous low end Windows XP PC, and i never had any kind of problem)
      Should i play the game at lower resolutions even if all settings are already at lowest?
      Why had i to choose my high-performances NVIDIA graphic card to play the game without lag even if it's an old and well optimized game?
      Please help me, i know SF:P1 is a very old game and i should go for SF2, but the first one is one of my favourite games of all time and THIS PROBLEM MAKES THE GAME UNPLAYABLE!!!
      THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH, cause this is a HUGE PROBLEM, i really have no idea of what to do and i'm very confused about what's happening...

      View File SF2 Cold War Prop and Flogger FM Tweaks
      Hello SF2 Flyers,
      For the post-WW2 prop. high-performance aircraft, several tweaks have been applied to the data inis, ranging from lift values for wings and wing tips to the engine section, prop. rpms, flight control section, gears section, flaps, also empty weight, inertia values, ceilings, engine sounds, rudder reversal effect fix, aileron/elevator/rudder sensitivity and movement, etc., depending on the type tweaked. Tweaks are not as extensive as for my FE2 work - but I've tried to get them into the "90% realistic enough" category for SF2 since these high-performance types are difficult to precision peg to within a km or two of historical stats., in contrast to the slower-moving FE2 types. Also included with this package are my minor data ini tweaks for several Flogger types, such as the MiG-23 S, early M, ML, P, MLA, late variant "98," and export variants MF and MS.
      Many thanks to the original FM modders for the late prop. types, including Baffmeister, Wrench, Cocas, MontyCZ, Charles of A-Team, Coupi, Paolopanz, and others I may not have mentioned here. The data inis are for SF2 installs only, tested at hard FM settings (no guarantees that the AI can land them nicely, although they fly them just fine). The Me109 G5 and H0 are variants on the stock G10 package provided on CombatAce (to install simply copy the relevant aircraft folders, rename as per my included folders, and drop in the relevant files). P-47 Sprint upgrades are variants on the ETO P-47D Bubbletop model and PTO P-47D Razorback model. Also included with this package are three sounds for a Pratt-Whitney, Centaurus, and Me109 either Benz or Hisso powered (sound works good for both). Links to the relevant aircraft that correspond with these data ini tweaks are located in the included "Read Me" file with the package. Please go through the Read Me for more thorough info. regarding these FM tweaks.
      Version 1.2 of this package includes the P-47N and improves the data inis for the other Jug and Superbolt variants.
      Happy flying,
      Von S
