  1. Wait, Facebook is still around ?
  2. Also, check the mission ranges. If there is a valid base, a valid plane, but the range of the plane can't put it in a mission interceptable at compatible range with the plane you chose, it will crash too. Once had that on an install, launching from a carrier, and crashed, because in the era I played, the closest enemy base supporting compatible target aircraft was too far for my flight and the enemy flight to ever meet due to the max mission ranges.
  3. IIRC, Sea Power, they're Triassic Games, they were (with ?) Killerfish previously, they already published War on the Sea, Atlantic Fleet, Pacific Fleet and Cold Waters. As much as a loss it is to SF2, they seem to have life happen to them and seem to be on a reasonnably succesful roll so I'm glad for them.
  4. Well, Julhelm is working with Stary on a naval simulator with the revived Microprose as an editor. So I guess he hasn't much free time on his hands these days.
  5. Yes, you set up your DSR ratio in the control panel, it then opens higher resolutions in SF2 graphic options, chose these resolutions higher than your monitor native resolution and the driver will automatically use them and rescale to your native resolution. Let's say I have a 1920x1200 monitor, when I go into the graphic tabs of SF2, the maximum resolution will be shown as 1920x1200, but if I went into the nVidia Control Panel and activated a 4x DSR ratio, the 3840x2400 resolution would also be available, if I select it, the image displayed would still be in 1920x1200 perfectly fitting my monitor but it would be downscaled from 3840x2400 automatically, giving better image quality through finer color rather than spatial resolution.
  6. So, I read some uninformed bullshit that made my head hurt, I'll leave this here because I'm lazy and would end up being rude :
  7. DLSS I don't know, but DSR yes, that's what I run. Just make sure to select the higher resolution in SF2 after making the change in the control panel. Don't worry, even if it's larger than your monitor's resolution the drivers will downscale it automatically to it.
  8. Have you heard of our Lords and Saviours DSR and DLSS ? Not only does it provide better images than any AA mode, but it also comes at a fraction of the cost on most older games (for DSR) and many newer ones (for DLSS when supported).
  9. There should be no issue, at some point there was a black screen bug if your Effects Detail were set at Unlimited rather than High but I'm not even sure that's still a problem. The bulk of problems were during the late 9x0 / early 10x0 series era if memory serves.
  10. Purely at the top of my head after only a few hours of sleep... so, grain of salt and all that. To determine which plane to spawn the game searches for planes that : - Have the required range for the mission assigned. - Are capable of the mission assigned. - Belong to a nation assigned to the map or, failing that, are marked Exported to the right side (Enemy or Friendly). - Has compatible Start and End dates (either specific to the nation, or as export). - Succeeds at a random roll based on their availability, if the enemy nation only has one VERY_RARE plane type available, they will hardly show, if they're VERY_COMMON, they will usually show. That's for the plane showing up or not part. For the skin part, we'd need to see the INIs, my guess is that there's no specific Angolan skin for the MiG-15 so it uses the first export client for the ENEMY side, which happens to be China ? At times it pays to be hyper specific in your INI definitions, or duplicate planes in order to have granular control over what shows up, where and when, but it can become a pain in the backside.
  11. Didn't you mean, "good luck with DAT" ? (Ok, ok, I'm out...)
  12. Combatace access issues.

    Had them on occasion a few months ago too, on both Chrome and Edge, but usually reloading the page solved them. Haven't had them in a while.
  13. Damn, that looks like absolutely stellar work. I understand the frustration but now that you know the limit, can't you find a few places to replace some tiles by more generic ones, losing a bit in details and gaining in repetition inland and in places not needing as much details while keeping the details for the coastlines and major target areas ? It would be a pity to just throw your work out. It's a pain but that's what happens when you try to push the envelope beyond what has been done before. That being said, the index stopping at 846 is weird. Damn, must be tired, somehow I missed that @Menrva had the exact same advice.
  14. Isn't that still punishable by death ? Lives could have been lost. It's an unredeemable level of ass-hatery, this kind of piece of trash has no place in civilian life either.
  15. Interesting... a kitbash of the 9e and 14, meant as a late production 9e ? Sorcerer ! Burn him !
