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!

      Hey admin/admins;
      I would like a clear notification somehow when a file is updated in SF2.  Especially since I had to get lucky to find the Super Hornet package was updated.
      Many thanks!

      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
