  1. GermanCE Terrain Re-Work Preview

    Would love to see a faithful recreation of CFB Baden Soellingen so I have home for my Hornets.
  2. November2012 V3

    You're off by a day.
  3. 10 Years with Combat Ace

    Truly a vibrant and passionate community of gamers, modders, and quite simply good friends. Through this marvellous technology, brought together to appreciate a common passion. I am humbled and honoured to be amongst you all. Happy 10th!!
  4. Really really pretty. Those fictitious skins, may end up being brought to life, depending what theatre to which they would be deployed. That actually looks very much like the old East German four tone camo, assuming the USSR was still around. Awesomeness.
  5. Salutations all. Just bought a new machine and now going through the motions of installing all my material for the Strike Fighters 2 series. The issue I am having is that the afterburners plumes (flames) are not appearing, when they are active, on any of the planes I have used so far. The whole ass end of the plane lights up, as if to suggest they are active, but no flamage. This is what I have installed so far, and in order: SF2 SF2V SF2E SF2I Patch SF2I_update_Jun2010 (note: the game would not let me install "SF2_update_Jun2010", it insisted on the Israel patch) Patch SF2_update_May2011 Patch SF2_update_Nov2011 NATO Fighters 4+, minus the Campaigns and Menus directories, so I have the basic SF2 menus system. 200+ other airplane packs. System specs, below. How do I get this to make the afterburners appear in the game? Thanks for your time... Brian "MiG Hound" Smith
  6. Sorry for the late reply... That's got it, thanks for the assist.
  7. oh, awesome... thanks. I knew I was forgetting something. That's twice you've pulled my ass out of the fire... on the same issue I think, too. I don't suppose you have an idea on this other issue I have with the afterburners not appearing on random aircraft?? Works on some, not others. Thanks, much
  8. I have this issue again. Seems to me, it was a patch update, that fixed it, last time, however... I have the latest SF2 update from Thirdwire. Please help
  9. Not entirely sure what I am looking for in the knowledge base. With a more detailed examination of the graphic elements during gameplay, I am now finding that not all aircraft are without afterburner effects. F-16s, Floggers, show the burner plume, and a few others. It seems completely random, both stock and third party models are affected.

  11. Ohh, finally. Now I can go back and reminisce of the old Jane's F-15 days. "Al Kharj Tower, request take off clearance"! Awesome pit. Thank you.
  12. Graphic Card Question

    My suggestion, for a good performance card would be the Gigabyte GeForce GTX-560 Ti . I was reading in the PC Gamer Builders Guide edition that this specific card, is mildly improved GTX-460 and the GPU clock has been tweaked just nicely, from 822Mhz to 900Mhz. Processor clock @ 1.645Ghz, SLI ready and includes Cuda tech. At $200, or so, it's a pretty decent card. I've been looking at this one to replace my old GeForce 8600GT. I'm not quite ready to swap out my entire system, yet.
  13. ohh, be careful, now. knowing our Govt, and their track record, these will be our F-18 replacements.
  14. F-23A Black Widow II Ver 3.0 for SF2

    I have loved this aircraft mod, since it was released for SFP1. Thanks, for keeping it alive for SF2. I still say Northrop was robbed. I did note, however, one or two glitches. The most notable being the burner flame is missing. To remedy this, I took the [Engine] entries from the 2.0 version data.ini file, and merged into the version 3.0 Data.ini file, overwriting the entries present. Secondly, not sure it is a 'glitch', however, certain cues in the HUD are missing, the heat-seeker lock pipper, and the Target Aspect "circle". Is there an edit, I can do, to get them into the HUD? If so, what would the entries be, in the .ini file?
  15. Thank you, kind sir. Yeah, I signed up with Capun's webpage for some time, now. Just haven't visited, in a while. Ummm... I am assuming this will also work in SF2?
  16. OMG, I had no idea the models was even available!! I've been waiting for it since WoE's release. Could you please provide a link to the model?
  17. CF-35A

    Thank youuuuuuuuuuuu...
  18. Ooooooooo, loverly... Now that Canada has confirmed it is buying them, someone should perhaps come up with a possible Canadian Forces skin set. pleeeeeeeease?

  20. Canada Intercepts Bears

    The original numbers were 98 CF-188A and 40CF-188B two seaters, for training purposes. Totaling, some 138 Hornets deployed to the 409th and 410th TFS in CFB Cold Lake AB and the 421st TFS in CFB Bagotville PQ. Approximately 20 of those have been lost in training, air show or ferrying exercises. Zero have been lost in actual combat. ...as far as I know. Unfortunately, Hornets are to be replaced by 65 Lightning II fighters, most likely designated CF-355A. I have a number of reservations concerning adopting the F-35 for Canadian defense requirements. What concerns me the most is the fact that, the requirement has traditionally been for twin engine fighters, and this has been overlooked in the case of the F-35. The resurgence of Russian Bear Foxtrots appearing over the polar cap forces our fighters to travel vast distances to intercept these incursions. The failure of one engine on existing Hornets will be worrisome for the pilot, as he/she hobbles back to home plate. Should the engine fail on an F-35, you can scratch one plane, and in the worst circumstances, considering the harsh conditions of the vast Canadian Tundra, scratch one pilot. These odds are too costly for families of pilots, and indeed the Canadian tax payer. The F/A-18E/F series are again the most viable, modern airframe for Canadian defense requirements, and continued NATO participation requirements. Albeit, a 20% larger airframe, the Super Hornet is very much the same aircraft Canadian pilots have been flying since the mid ‘80s, with the latest Avionics suites available. I’m no economist, but just playing with some facts and figures, the Canadian Govt. at per unit cost, could procure some 90 F/A-18E/F aircraft for approx. 5.5 Billion in USD. I’d be curious to know the service life costs and weapons deployment costs would be, for these airframes over a 30+ year life span.
  21. Do any of these words embarrass you?

    ...no, from the very beginning of his campaign, I knew my vote would go to...

  22. Do any of these words embarrass you?

    Arthur: Old woman! Dennis: Man! Arthur: Man. Sorry. What knight lives in that castle over there? Dennis: I'm thirty-seven. Arthur: I-- what? Dennis: I'm thirty-seven. I'm not old. Arthur: Well, I can't just call you 'Man'. Dennis: Well, you could say 'Dennis'. Arthur: Well, I didn't know you were called 'Dennis'. Dennis: Well, you didn't bother to find out, did you? Arthur: I did say 'sorry' about the 'old woman', but from the behind you looked-- Dennis: What I object to is that you automatically treat me like an inferior! Arthur: Well, I am King! Dennis: Oh, King, eh, very nice. And how d'you get that, eh? By exploiting the workers! By 'anging on to outdated imperialist dogma which perpetuates the economic and social differences in our society. If there's ever going to be any progress with the-- Woman: Dennis, there's some lovely filth down here. Oh! How d'you do? Arthur: How do you do, good lady? I am Arthur, King of the Britons. Who's castle is that? Woman: King of the who? Arthur: The Britons. Woman: Who are the Britons? Arthur: Well, we all are. We are all Britons, and I am your king. Woman: I didn't know we had a king. I thought we were an autonomous collective. Dennis: You're fooling yourself. We're living in a dictatorship: a self-perpetuating autocracy in which the working classes-- Woman: Oh, there you go bringing class into it again. Dennis: That's what it's all about. If only people would hear of-- Arthur: Please! Please, good people. I am in haste. Who lives in that castle? Woman: No one lives there. Arthur: Then who is your lord? Woman: We don't have a lord. Arthur: What? Dennis: I told you. We're an anarcho-syndicalist commune. We take it in turns to act as a sort of executive officer for the week,... Arthur: Yes. Dennis: ...but all the decisions of that officer have to be ratified at a special bi-weekly meeting... Arthur: Yes, I see. Dennis: ...by a simple majority in the case of purely internal affairs,... Arthur: Be quiet! Dennis: ...but by a two-thirds majority in the case of more major-- Arthur: Be quiet! I order you to be quiet! Woman: Order, eh? Who does he think he is? Heh. Arthur: I am your king! Woman: Well, I didn't vote for you. Arthur: You don't vote for kings. Woman: Well, how did you become King, then? Arthur: The Lady of the Lake,... [angels sing] ...her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water signifying by Divine Providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. [singing stops] That is why I am your king! Dennis: Listen. Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony. Arthur: Be quiet! Dennis: Well, but you can't expect to wield supreme executive power just 'cause some watery tart threw a sword at you! Arthur: Shut up! Dennis: I mean, if I went 'round saying I was an emperor just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away! Arthur: Shut up, will you? Shut up! Dennis: Ah, now we see the violence inherent in the system. Arthur: Shut up! Dennis: Oh! Come and see the violence inherent in the system! Help! Help! I'm being repressed! Arthur: Bloody peasant! Dennis: Oh, what a give-away. Did you hear that? Did you hear that, eh? That's what I'm on about. Did you see him repressing me? You saw it, didn't you?
