  1. I found a big slow down was caused by all the tracers in the air from all the gun turrets of a large bomber formation. I had a good FPS increase by re-sizing all the tracer.tga textures 3 or 4 times smaller to 30x30. Visually it doesn't make any difference. Also try reverting to stock TW tracer smoke effects if you have a modded one. Also do this as again it worked for me: https://combatace.com/forums/topic/84199-frame-rate-tweak-for-nvidia-users/
  2. Replacement PC arrived, it's not top of the range but considering it is an insurance replacement for one that was 8 years old I think I did ok out of it :-) PC Intel Core i3 8100 Quad Core 3.6Ghz, 8GB RAM. 1TB HDD, Nvidia GTX 1050Ti 4GB, WiFi, Windows 10 Home 64bit. Now time to re install everything....
  3. Like with most of the stock Third Wire weapons, racks, objets and aircraft a higher resolution re-paint can do wonders. My suggestion is extract the skin for the rack, re-size it to 1024x1024 (or 2048x2048 if you have a decent PC) and re paint it from reference photos including panel lines etc.
  4. Cheers for the info guys sounds like it should be pretty painless
  5. A few days ago while I was on duty at work my beloved 3 year old daughter decided to squirt a bottle of lemon drink into our desktop pc at home. Insurance will cover a replacement gaming computer which means an upgrade at least. So my question to you guys is who has managed to get SF2 working on Windows 10 and what did you need to do? Old computer had upgraded modernish graphics card etc but still ran Windows Vista. Also the HD seems ok thank God, been a while since I backed up! We have a laptop running Windows 10 but never tried to put any games on it.
  6. It happened all the time during the Cold War https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air-to-air_combat_losses_between_the_Soviet_Union_and_the_United_States
  7. I read recently that this is a common miss conception due to air Defence Command using the F-104A as an interim interceptor. It was in fact designed and built as a daylight air superiority fighter which is the role the TAC squadrons trained for and where deployed for.
  8. Cheers mate, from what I have read it's a pretty unusual load out other than for ground displays at air shows etc. Reason being it's very 'dragy' especially once the nose cones have been fired off etc.
  9. Hi ravenclaw, any chance you could release these if their done? Cheers, dan
  10. Royal New Zealand Air Force Canberra B(I).12 Interdictor through the years 1959- 1970. Used in action in Operation "Confrontation" against Indonesia 1964- 1966
  11. NZ6202 A-4K Skyhawk No.75 Squadron Ohakea AFB New Zealand 1970
  12. One thing to be aware off with the chaff and flares set up as a weapon that you can load and unload is the AI wingman/ enemy will not use them. It is a game bug. The work around is to have two versions of the plane, one without them and another with them from a certain date. Like Third Wire does with its stock aircraft e.g. 'F-4E' and 'F-4E (75)
