  1. after reading the pdf on setting the FOV i was left wondering, isnt that what the ingame zoom keys are for? or is there a bit more to it?
  2. hi, ive just received my rudder pedals and am eager to try them out with OFF. i went to the saitek website to see what software i needed and found 2 downloads. one was the latest drivers but there was another quite sizeable software download (224mb) as well. i installed the drivers and the rudder pedals seem to work well enough so im just wonderin what the software is for, does anyone else have it installed?
  3. thanks for the tip bout the rudder brakes, ive now done that. bout the software, so you reckon the 200 odd mb download is for a saitek joystick? if it is then the website is screwed cos it lists both download under rudder pedals. think il give it a miss though, the rudder pedals seem to be workin fine so im happy enough.
  4. prob a silly question but how do i enable trackIR in OFF? i dont see any obvious options for it in the workshop.
  5. Amigas "Wings" Diary

    i remember when this was released on the old amiga very well. i also remember that in order to run it u had to buy a half meg upgrade which i think i payed around 50 pounds for its funny lookin back at those days.
  6. hi, ive seen phase mentioned a few time and am wondering what content this is gonna contain. i assume its gonna be more than an expansion but i have to ask to how much further the CFS3 game engine can be pushed within its limitations? i also remember the devs sayin that if all went well with sales etc they would consider building their own sim from scratch. can we assume that this isnt gonna happen due to nothin more having been said about it? just curious thats all.
  7. That "other WW1 flight sim"

    ah wings, one of my all time fav games on the old amiga. i also jumped in and bought ROF due to its very low price. first impressions are that its very good at what it does although im currently havin some performance/crash issues that im tryin to iron out. to be be fair though, i had the same probs with OFF initially. the campaign engine currenltly cant touch OFF but if any wings players here cast their minds back to that classic, it to didnt have a dynamic campaign it was very much a tightly scripted affair but still excellent. the career mode in ROF certainly isnt scripted from what ive seen in that the missions it throws up appear to be different everytime. the word over on their forums suggest that more work will be done with it which is good. if ROF is supported with more updates and hopefully a much more immersive campaign mode then i predict that it might just surpass OFF within the next 12 months. that a BIG if though.
  8. hi, what settin do you guys find the most realistic for ack ack? ive been downed twice outa my last 4 missions by ack ack while flying at between 3000 - 4000 feet and am wondering if its a little to effective. my understanding is that ww1 anti aicraft fire was largely ineffective other than very low altitudes ie below 2000 feet. i would be happy to be proved wrong though, does anyone have any fact n figures on casualties from archie? i currently have it on normal but im a realism kinda guy and am loathed to drop it down to easy.
  9. phase 4 and beyond?

    you can never have to much of a good thing my friend. as great as OFF is, ive read so many posts from people who say they wont touch it cos its basically a heavilly modded CFS3.
  10. anti aircraft fire

    think il just persevere with normal mode as i hate using easy settings when i game and normal mode seems to be what real men use round here!
  11. Does Surround Sound help in OFF?

    you really need to look into gettin track IR, it adds so much to the immersion + your situational awareness goes way up as well. freetrack is a cheaper alternative although gettin it set up is way more hassle. i also have surround sound although with flight sims it really doesnt add anything, the main sound you gonna hear is your own engine after all.
  12. anti aircraft fire

    im totally aware that ww1 panes didnt have or use autopilots dude . i just find it a lot less mundane than manually keepin level flight for the entire mission while i scour the skies for enemies, obviously from now on i wont be usin it over or near the frontline. i was also ware that anit aircraft fire didnt become accurate until well into ww2 due to a lack of proximity fuses. so how did ww1 anti aircraft batteries manage to fire at specific altitudes?
  13. anti aircraft fire

    ive been flyin in 1917. but to be fair ive been usin auto pilot when ive been shot down, i just though id be safe at those altitudes but obviously not. so more evasive flyin is required then eh
  14. targeting aircraft

    so all i gotta do is aim at the group of planes i want my flight to attack and press a? i dont use tac radar by the way.
  15. targeting aircraft

    so would i be right in sayin theres no "attack nearest planes" button? on my last misssion i came across a flight of 3 bombers, i pressed a for attack but my flight of 6 fighters flew off in the opposite direction. ive read above that the tac radar screen can be used to target aircraft but wont this simply order the whole flight to attack individual aircraft, or will they attack all aircraft near the targetted one?
  16. hi, is there any way to film missions so i can rewatch the dogfights from an external view? im constantly bein shot down and would love to watch the dogfights to see where im goin wrong.
  17. hi, ive just had a ctd during a mission. any chance you guys could have a look at the log file to see a likely cause? cheers
  18. less than 100% fuel loadout?

    that seems a strange design choice, is there no way of at least givin us the option?
  19. less than 100% fuel loadout?

    so it seems thats its based on whether i choose a personal skin then? think il just stick with a default skin then as i prefer adjusting my fuel load.
  20. game crashed

    yep ive got different OS's on each hardrive so im sure thats not the problem. ive now flown 3 missions without crash now so touch wood that the problems now gone.
  21. less than 100% fuel loadout?

    has the ability to change change the fuel loadout been changed with the latest patch? on the mission ive just flown i was unable to change it.
  22. im havin problems manually skipping waypoints. default key is shift + w which doesnt work. ive tryed changing it to another key but still no joy. any ideas?
  23. game crashed

    its not only a seperate partition OFF is installed on, its a seperate harddrive which hasnt had OFF installed on it before so im certain there cant be any files left over.
  24. game crashed

    guys, ive never had OFF or CFS3 installed on this partition so there defo isnt any old files + my OS is set to uk. i dug through this forum and found a thread on page 15 or so from a guy who has a similar spec to myself, he listed the way his game is set up which ive copied. ive since flew a mission which thankfully didnt crash so heres hopin ive finally nailed this problem.
  25. game crashed

    alright just found another error although im not sure if its related to my crash issues. just tried to enlist a fighter pilot in jasta 1, 8th May 1917. got the following OFF Manager message. the mission then had me in an EIII which was the wrong plane.
