  1. Well, there you go. I forgot OP was referring to KAW. Perhaps a well populated terrain. Thanks for the better answer.
  2. I have a very basic laptop that plays SF2 quite well on high/unlimited graphics. Usually gets about 20fps which occasionally drops to 15fps but I have had furballs, over 20 jets nearby, with smooth framrates. Acer Spin SP111-33, Celeron N400, 4Gb ram, onboard graphics (Intel UHD Graphics 600). So maybe something not quite right on your system or with your SF install.
  3. No answer yet but probably found the answer. After some searching I found that to play as mercenary in any SF2 title (Vietnam, Israel, etc) then must have original SF2 installed. So it seems likely that playing mercenary in any SF2 theatre, the game will use SF2 code for mercenary squadrons. SF2 will NOT do loadouts automatically for all the squadron aircraft. I have SF2 + Europe + Israel. Has anyone with merged install played as Merc?
  4. If I use the campaign customiser and select Mercenary, will the loadouts for squadron members be selected automatically (as happens when flying for government squadrons) or will I still need to select each aircraft's loadouts? I prefer to fly as merc but I don't like having to select loadouts for 8 or so aircraft. I am considering buying the campaign customiser.
  5. Yep, I set the export to enemy as false; thanks to Menrva for noting that specific ini. Thank you all for helpful info.
  6. Aha! Thanks Menrva. If that's the case I think I'll do some ini edits. So glad it's not a bug or my laptop. Good one, Bazillius, however I can't read Dhimari?
  7. Vanilla install of SF2 is assigning MIG 19 squadron to Dhimar in Single Mission games. I initially noticed this after installing SF2 Expansion 2 and the RealSky mod with some ini edits: I don't think either caused the issue, just that I didn't notice before. I uninstalled and just installed SF2 with not mods, only control ini edits but still happens - about every 1 in 4 single missions. I have then uninstalled and run registry cleaner but still happens. The Migs act as friendly and if I shoot them then I get a friendly fire warning. The pc has never had the game installed previously (I have not played it for at least 5 years - had Thirdwire sims from SF Gold). Acer Spin 111-33 Celeron N4000 Intel UHD graphics 600 This laptop runs SF2 well; 20fps with high/unlimited graphics settings.
  8. Yes, I thought there was probably no mod for map view after death - otherwise it would already have been done. With retaining fov AND view angle when switching between cockpit & lock view, I'll have to experiment some more. Thanks for your replies.
  9. Is there a mod so the inflight map function is retained after my pilot has died? I've searched SF 1 & 2 forums and found no posts on this subject. I like to watch the action after my demise and it would be helpful to view the map to see which friendlies are engaged (it's not always easy to tell in the various aircraft views). With the map view I could see the flight's number. Thanks P.S. Also is it possible to mod viewlist ini so that FOV is maintained when switching between cockpit view & lock view (ie I have zoomed in on an enemy in lock view and I want to maintain same FOV when I switch to cockpit view).
  10. That's the stick I've been using for 5 years or so! It feels great and can have many controls mapped to the buttons on the actual stick and the hat. I have posted my controls ini below the overview of my setup. Let me know what you think and any changes you may recommend. Logitech & Mouse overview: I use a mouse in the left hand to look around, mouse wheel for zoom & airbrake, L/R buttons control thrust. Most of the commonly used pilot/combat controls and view/target controls are on the actual stick. The trigger button is for cannons & the thumb button is for bombs/missiles/rockets. The four topside buttons do weapon select, lock target, padlock view & rear view. The hat switch changes cockpit view and selects air targets & ground targets - also allows to change views (target view, player to target view, target to player view). I have tried to map actions in a fairly logical manner and divided the stick as left side is for air targets/weapons, right side is for ground targets/weapons. So similar functions are grouped on buttons using CTRL+ & SHFT+ . So each of the top buttons and the 4 directions on the hat switch can have 3 actions. With this setup I can keep my hands mostly on the stick & mouse while piloting, navigating and combat. With this setup I use TAB to turn on radar and change radar mode. The Q/W, A/S, Z/X buttons are used in pairs to change radar distance, select radar target, lock/unlock radar target. The buttons on the base are for gear up/down, flaps up/down. wheel brakes. There are 6 buttons on the base but I have only set the previous mentioned actions. Radio commands are on keyboard and also third person views, eg next object, fly-by view, tower view, action view. My controls ini - it has been named Logitech.

  11. Thanks Piecemeal. Mods was true and deleting the naval line did not help. Any other suggestions? AND does anyone run Desert 4 with the mountains addon but without SF2:NA?
  12. A simple "Why did you change the folder name?'' type of reply would have been more appropriate not your flabbergasted amazement. I changed the name because SF2 would not use the terrain when I left the name as Desert4 (this was implied in my initial statement but probably I should have been more specific). SF2 will only use Piecemeal's terrain when the folder's named is changed to DESERT - but then it will not use the Moutain Region addon. I have deleted and reinstalled but not success. My install of SF2 was just recently downloaded from TW site so is up-to-date. The only edits have been to huddata & viewlist ini's (no addons or other mods at all). So any help would still be appreciated Piecemeal. Does anybody else playing SF2, without SF:AN installed, use this terrain (with or without the Mountain addon)?
  13. I have SF2 July 2013 clean install. I installed Piecemeal's Desert 4 terrain as per the readme. However I had to change the name of the terrain folder to Desert (delete V4 from the name) to get it to be used by the game. Could this be due to not have SF:NA installed as recommended. My main problem is that I tried to install the Desert 4 Mountain Regions + addons, by Centurion1 BUT I cannot get the game to use it. I have tried some basic editing of options ini - including with the terrain folder being named Desert & Desert4. I would prefer not having SF:NA installed - already have 3 titles and play SF2 90% of the time. Any help would be great.
  14. OR deleting nations. I delete all nations and enter in only 2 - Dhimar & Paran (Desert scenario nations). Then all my aircraft are either nation.
