  1. How to drop bombs ?

    Hi jeanba, If memory serves, you hit the "Back" button to choose the weapon, in this case bombs, then hit the "Enter" key to drop them. Hope this helps. Cheers! Lou
  2. I hope everyone has a safe and happy Thanksgiving. Count your blessing, and don't overeat too much. Cheers Everyone! Lou
  3. jeanba, I love the G4 as well, but then I'm a B/R man at heart.
  4. Hi ya BB, glad to see you're still active as well. I also have ROF with every plane they offered, but like you've I've not flown it for ages. And oh those old RB3D days, we had a lot of fun back then, as long as there wasn't some squabble about someone hacking the FM or ammo strength or time warp or some such thing. Lou
  5. Hello Olham, my old friend, glad to see you are still about! So you've moved from sailing ships to tanks, eh? That's quite the switch. I've not been doing much at all for the last bunch of months in terms of sims, but I am getting back to WOFF now with Raine's upcoming Deep Immersion DiD campaign, which starts in December. The IL-2 mod sounds intriguing and I will give it a look when it becomes available. I hope we will see you again in the WOFF skies, preferably sooner rather than later. Prost!
  6. Awfully nice of you Erik, you're a gentleman and a scholar. Join us for a fresh cupp'a and we might even be able to locate a bottle of something single-malty to spice it up a bit. Lou
  7. Hi ya Hasse! I agree, these still feel like our home digs. And right now we can't even get into our usual discussion forum over at SimHQ, it has been crashed for the last two days. Maybe we should just start having our daily meetings here regardless of the "official" forums.
  8. . ... just nod if you can hear me, is there anyone at home? Wondering who is still checking in here on a semi-regular basis. Cheers! Lou .
  9. . I seem to recall I was one of the moderators for this forum, once upon a time, and you may be right about Dej. Olham may have been one way back when too. Thanks again Eric for keeping the doors open and the lights on for us, it is much appreciated Sir. BTW, since I am here and looking at them right now, are than any new medals you need added to your board since I made the original batch for you? I'm sure I saved all the artwork as I don't tend to ever throw anything away.
  10. I agree about the ghost image. I thought that hoop looked more pipe-like as well and I am wondering if the OAW-built machines used a different block at the back of the camshaft that had the tach drive coming out the top instead of the end. If so, a conduit with the cable running through it until it got below the decking would make sense, not only in terms of durability but also in terms of keeping the cable from flopping around directly in the pilot's forward line of sight. I'd love to see that drawing Jim.
  11. Jim, those are excellent photos showing a lot of detail as regards this issue. It's obvious in that first pic that whatever the loop is it is attached via a nut at the forward end. Also in that pic it almost looks as if there are a pair of identical loops side-by-side, though it may just be some odd shadowing or reflection, perhaps even some "ghosting". In the second pic it certainly looks like a cable sweeping down in under the combing and heading directly towards the backside of the tachometer.
  12. Upon further consideration and study my opinion is that the loop in question is the drive cable for the tachometer. Didn't said cable attach to the back of the Mercedes engine up at the rear of the camshaft? That would place things just about right for a cable that was supplied in too great a length to be, out of necessity, looped upward from the back of the engine before sweeping back down under the cockpit combing and attaching to the tachometer. EDIT: I was actually posting this as you were posting yours Jim - great minds think alike eh? :o) ADDITIONAL EDIT: Looks about right to me, but then I've been wrong before.
  13. Jim, upon studying the photos you've provided here as well as those posted by Czech6, I must say that the way that thing loops is odd if it where in fact a gun cable. In the close-up showing the plate and cable fittings it is clear they are pointing towards the cockpit, i.e., rearward. So shouldn't excess cable coming from that point be sweeping up and back in a gentle curve before returning down into the bowels of the plane? However, in the photo examples shown it is precisely the opposite of that with the cable coming nearly straight up and out from somewhere between the guns then sweeping back down in a more gentle curve. More to chew on there as well I'd say.
  14. Jim, the photo you posted appears to show two different cables/lines, (at least as far as my tired old eyes can tell): the one you pointed out that is well into the engine compartment and looping forward, and also the one coming up from between the guns and looping back that Czech6 notes as possibly being for the interrupter mechanism. Or am I seeing things?
  15. Your most and least favourite planes in WOFF? This is an interesting question in that sometimes, (for me at least), the same plane can be both depending on what period of the war we are considering. The Airco DH.2 early on in the conflict is my favorite mount, but when the Albs make their appearance I want to be as far from the Spinning Incinerator as I can get.
