  1. Ah, yes...bickering with Mum. I remember it well.
  2. Same to you, Detlev! Will you be spending it with your Mum, again, this year?
  3. Greetings to you, Robert. And a Merrie Christmas.
  4. Good question. Unfortunately, one I can't answer. I know the Soviet Union chose "The International" as their anthem. (On reflection, it dawns on me that you used it in Video #1. A pretty good, stirring piece of music.) I have no idea what the modern Russian state uses. In any event, I don't think it would bother anyone. Americans aren't touchy about such things. Putin is being aggressive these days, but it's nothing like the old days of Stalin/Krushchev/Breznevh. Speaking of National Anthems, does Germany still use "Deutchland uber alles", or did the National Socialists ruin that for you? ps: After buying "Battle of Stalingrad", I went and bought "Battle of Kuban". (Gotta get that Hs-129!) I'll probably buy "Battle of Bodenplatte" when it releases. Recently, I have developed a lust for a P-38.
  5. Thanks, mate. That was my understanding: It was "Bf" until Willy took over the company. By the way...nice dogfights.
  6. Olham: was it you that said, that in Germany, it was always "Bf-109", never "Me-109"?
  7. What you're seeing is the "Pre-Release Battle of Kuban Premium". If you buy that package, you can have it now. I just bought "Battle of Stalingrad". I was hoping to see the Henschel-129 in there, but, no go. Neither is the Junkers-52 though it is available in the "Collectors Planes". I posted a querry on BOS Forum and the word is that the Henschel (and BOK) will be available early next year. One guy even said "next month". BOK Premium is still available and I think I'll go for it. It will feel odd not having an extra wing over my head.
  8. Certainly seems promising. I'd buy a copy just to support the project. It's been sad watching a beautiful flight sim like ROF slowly die from neglect. 2x My 'cup of tea' seeing as I've always been a Quick Combat pilot. Never have flown Campaigns.
  9. Need to get out more? No doubt, I do...much good it may do me. I realize there are vast stretches of this site that are Terra Incognita to me. I've just hung out at OFF. In browsing the links you posted in reply, I noted one reply to Menrva (I think I have that right) that you are keeping abreast of current software and security. That can only be a good thing. Also I see many site members saying many improvements and better site functioning. More of a good thing, tho' invisible to my constricted field of view. I've always felt that Combat Ace functioned just fine. You mentioned a few times that new skins will have to wait on more pressing business. Is there any chance that we at Over Flanders Fields can have our old skin back?
  10. It was a shock to arrive here one morning and discover our beloved Combat Ace had turned white. There was a notice that said (if I recall correctly) that the site was undergoing some digital housecleaning and reorganization. Days passed and nothing changed. I tried to log in, but no go. 'Turns out I was trying to use an out-of-date password. When I got that sorted out, I could get in, expecting to see the old site skin. Imagine my surprise. It was like returning home to find my parents had sold the house, packed up all the furniture and the new owners had slapped on a coat of white paint in preparation for renting out my room. So...Eric? Dave? What's happening here at the old BOC homestead? I think I saw a thread saying that Eric(?) is working on a new site skin? I sure did love the old one. What's up?
  11. I notice that of all the things discussed, OFF/WOFF is never mentioned. I think I gave it up 'round about the time WOFF moved over to SimHQ; maybe a bit sooner. In truth, I never "gave it up", I just flew less and less, until I wasn't flying at all. But I remain very much interested in WWI aircraft, and want to preserve a connection with the people I met here at Combat Ace. I keep promising myself that I'll dust off my joystick (it sits on the floor by the computer ) strap on a D.V and get back to it. But other stuff gets in the way. Near the top of my 'Bucket List' is firing up ROF and flying on-line against real people. Soon. I keep promising myself. What about the rest of us who wander through here?
  12. Well, when you put it that way, I've got to admit that, if I'm down on DH-2's, it's because of my OFF/WOFF experience with them. I've had two strikes against me: untrained and unexperienced.
