Recommended Posts

What new rig do you have? I've upgraded several times now with no issues - other than the nvidia issue where I can't use unlimted setting for one of the graphics settings...

No news?

No news. I see TW is still much active for their mobile games, though.

I don't mind the waiting, but some communication would be nice...

That wasn't his strong point in the last couple of years...I guess he didn't change over time. :dunno:

Speaking of communication make sure to get a clear answer to:

a) Can we just port over all the expansion packs and more importantly all our mods to this new version?

b) If not, then what?  How?

Thanks.

I"m going to venture a guess that 3rd party mods will probably just drop in. Anything from 3W (DLCs, expansion packs) will most likely have to be party re-written for Winge10. Just my wandering thoughts ...

I am not expecting anything. Just new logo win10 in the right bottom corner.

For years TW was ignorant about SF2 community, and now it is even arrogant to deny any SF2 community. 

If only someone cared little and visited community forums - one would know what needs to be improved. We would have improvements dreamed for years a long time ago. But...it is better to re-heat burger from last week and still try to sell it. Instead, we will have a patch that allows you to run on w10 even if without it still runs ok. Patch surrounded by big OH!! and WOW,  AHH!! and hopes, nothing more. 

 

I hope I am wrong.

Well, I'm afraid you are not wrong. He already stated, that the update will only include W10-compatibility and nothing more, as his financial goals were not met. So in the end TK can even blame his (already) 2nd class customers for that, as we all haven't thrown more money into the black hole "TW". At the time I spent the money I was not really convinced of him creating something substantial new and updated, but...well...even then I gave the money with a tiny bit of hope. I would be surprised, if all the money he got is really invested into SF2 alone... I hope I am wrong too.

In my opinion TW/TK doesn't deserve any more cent at all from any customer.

Sometimes I wonder if a group of us could

a) Buy the source code to the PC version of TW

b) Get a Win10 version + bug fixed version going and sell that on Steam

c) Use the profits to keep adding modules, jets, weapons, ships, maps, etcetera.

Not everybody has time for DCS: World.  Nor is it easy to mod for DCS.

A) It would be nice, but probably not going to happen

B) Probably not going to happen, TK would have to give his  blessing for it (much like for the code)

C) A lot of the modding is free (There's YAP) but the community would probably up in arms about it. Granted it would be nice but I don't see that happening personally.

I don't have enough disk space on my laptop to run DCS, and even when I had  it installed I barely flew it, not interested in it as much as I used to be.

      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.
