I'm not finding this in the SF2 Forum and using the search is getting me there either.

One thing I liked to do with the old SF1 was use the Single Mission option with Start Position 'In the Air' not 'Near Target.' I'm using the 2013 SF2 full five merged. Now I can only sart on the ground or "In air, NEAR Target."

Not the end of the  world, can probably get around it with the Mission Editor. But I did like the old feature. Is there a fix????

Hi StoneAxe1492. You'll be able to change this if you click on the "Options" tab in the main menu of the game.

That was funny...hadn't thought about that movie in awhile.

I know the movie was 'Dumb' but it was funny. I challenged my X-brother-in-law to a bet that he could not sit through that movie with a straight face. He couldn't make it. He was serious up to the cop saying, 'shut you punkin pie hair cutt'd freak & give the booze if you know what's good for ya.'   And then took a big chug of uh urine.

I found i can edit a simple mission pretty quick or use the "Alt+N" (that may not be the default keys) feature to jump to the action area after takeoff. You know, reading the manual or at least the list of available commands is still a viable option even today.  :)

Thanks...yeah i found with the editor you cab set the 'home base' to none or use the 'ALT -N'  (Bothering to read the documentation makes a lot of difference)

Which is fine. Mostly i would want to have a reasonable match-up dogfight only thing.

OR...fly strike escort which would be a scaled down alpha strike or whatever you call an air force strike. Probably a 'Strike.' (i maxed out the available memory for this computer and after 8 gigs i couldn't tell much improvement. 1 day if i live long enough, i will just have to own something akin to alienware.)

I have to mention how awesome many of the add-ons are. These are some of 'MY' favs and are not meant to slight those not mentioned.

I've always liked the phantom especially the 'S' model. (Even though it kinda drives like a truck)

The TMF tomcat superpack is great. I can finaly fly the re-engined models

And really like the Mirages, Rafales, eurofighters, & tornados etc as well

And especially the atlas cheetah...i didn't even know anybody remembered that plane but me

 

Go Navy!

      SF2 Jane's USAF Hi-Res 1024x768 Menu Screens and Music!
      By Viper
       
      The Janes' Combat Flight Simulation Series! Every flight Sim'mer worth their wings remembers those! My favorite was the USAF! This package pays tribute to that old beautiful bird. It took me awhile to create this, so feedbacks and ratings would be highly appreciated...Enjoy!
       
      This mod includes custom "Jane's USAF" themed menu screens, pilots and music. This mod uses customized INI files to drive the sights and sounds of the Strike Fighter 2 interface to look like Jane's USAF.
       
      Unzip the package and preview the new screens before installing them. I recommend doing this as there are MANY alternate screens I have in there that you might like better (More on this later).
       
      If you choose to install this package, I recommend that you back up (copy) your FLIGHT, MENU and PILOTDATA folders in the SF2 Mod folder you're installing this package into. Just in case you want to go back to your original setup.
       
      * To install, simply unzip and copy the uncompressed FLIGHT, MENU and PILOTDATA folders to your StrikeFighter2 mod folder. I designed this package for SF2 Europe, but it should work for all SF2 series games.
       
      My StrikeFighter2 mod on Win97 64-bit was..(yours may be different)...
       
      C:\Users\<your_id>\Saved Games\Thirdwire\StrikeFighter2 Europe\
       
      * To remove, simply delete the active FLIGHT, MENU and PILOTDATA folders and replace with the back up copies you made prior to the install.
       
      -----------------------------------------------------------------
      * Extras and additional info...
       
      In the MENU folder, you will find three (3) other folders...
       
      1) Alternates Folder - Contains "Alternate" Campaign, Options, Pilot, and Single Mission screens. If you like one of these better, just copy them to the main "MENU" folder and rename them to the correct names...
       
      CampaignScreen.jpg
      OptionsScreen.jpg
      PilotRecordScreen.jpg
      SingleMissionScreen.jpg
       
      ...for whichever files you are changing...
       
      2) Music-Jets Folder - Contains alternate sound package. If the default music is too much for you, just copy the contents of this file into the default "MENU" folder. Most of the music will be replaced with jet sounds.
       
      3) Music-On Folder - Contains the default INI files that will turn on all the music again.
       
      Enjoy!

      Note: I removed all the nation sounds from this Menu packs for size reasons. If you intend to install the "VIPER63A HQ Menu Sounds" pack, please install that pack first. Installing the HQ Sound pack over the Menu pack may overwrite some of the menu specific music files. You can always re-install this menu pack to get the menu specific theme music back.
      This mod includes custom "vietnam Era" themed menu screens, pilots and (w/ 60s) music. You should unzip this package and preview the new screens before installing them. I recommend doing this as there are MANY alternate screens I have in there that you might like better.
      1) Backup (copy) your FLIGHT, MENU and PILOTDATA folder. I "highly" recommend that you (if you can) "RENAME" your Menu folder and let this mod create a new Menu folder for you. If you had installed any other menu mods, that may conflict with this Menu mod. 
      2) To install, simply unzip and copy the uncompressed FLIGHT, MENU and PILOTDATA folders to your StrikeFighter2 mod folder. Don't forget to back up before loading any mods!
      My StrikeFighter2 mod on Win10 64-bit was..(yours may be different)...

      3) To uninstall, delete the folders updated by this mod and copy (rename) your backed up folder to FLIGHT, MENU and PILOTDATA.
