  1. Sure. Why would you want to? The SAM systems available now for download are already insanely difficult to counter. The engine isn't really to model next-gen SAM systems. This is a sim built for systems no newer than about 1985.
  2. Well, that's interesting. After years of radio silence, TK does something interesting. I would doubt a single bug has been fixed; this is likely a simple repackaging. However, is he planning on working on a few bugs to finish the product? Who knows? I know the mobile gaming market is largely driven by quick, simple to play games. I've never played any of TK's mobile games because that's not what I use my iPhone to do. I also doubt that TK is planning new PC development. He has already expressed how he feels about the PC gaming environment, and I begrudge him nothing. His mobile gaming enterprise seems to be keeping him in the black, so more power to him. I may reinstall the SF2 series, I'm getting tired of waiting on DCS to finish Modern Air Combat and I think Ed Scio has pretty much waved the white flag on Combat Air Patrol 2.
  3. Okay, thank you for confirming that works. I haven't reinstalled anything yet, but I'm glad that someone could clarify for me that this works. The lack of night missions in campaigns is unacceptable. I think the thing I would probably miss the most from running SF2NA is the carrier battle groups.
  4. I know that if you do not merge SF2:NA with the rest of your installs, you do away with some of the idiosyncrasies of the campaign, like the enemy focus on sinking naval battle groups and focusing strikes on land targets. Are there any other advantages to running without North Atlantic? I know the user misses out on the F-14 Avionics.dll, but are there other trade offs that make the game better?
  5. Thanks. I’ve come to the conclusion that modern warfare simply just doesn’t work well in the SF2 environment; you go past about 1993, you’re just playing whack-a-mole with the limits of the engine. I’m looking at the existing terrains to see what we have.
  6. I literally just dumped the whole thing and I'm starting over from scratch.
  7. Found the error. It's definitely something wrong with the terrain engine. Faulting application name: StrikeFighters2 NorthAtlantic.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x51d221e5 Faulting module name: TerrainEngine.dll, version:, time stamp: 0x51d21fa0 Exception code: 0xc0000005 Fault offset: 0x0000baa4 Faulting process id: 0x28f8 Faulting application start time: 0x01d3ebbff683301d Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\ThirdWire\Strike Fighters 2\StrikeFighters2 NorthAtlantic.exe Faulting module path: C:\Program Files (x86)\ThirdWire\Strike Fighters 2\Core\TerrainEngine.dll Report Id: 7305208f-1043-40c9-96f1-e925a6194652 Faulting package full name: Faulting package-relative application ID: Does this mean I need to uninstall SF2 and reinstall it?
  8. It's like trying to find an electrical short in a classic car that you're in the middle of restoring. I get about 20 minutes into a mission in campaign mode and BAM.
  9. I'm working on the Operation Darius reboot (a little at a time) and I'm noticing I'm getting a LOT of CTDs, but usually only well into the mission and with a lot of activity going on. Is it graphics settings? It is the number of air units I have? What's the right number of air units to have in play at any one given time? Thanks.
  10. Getting discouraged on this project and may have to shelve it for a while. SF2 does not lend itself well to modern combat systems, even if visual quality and flight models of the aircraft are nothing less than stellar.
  11. This Cracked me Up....

    God makes them pretty when they're in their 20s. It's a trap.
  12. Hey Slack Asses......

    Finally got a Hulu subscription.
  13. HARD difficulty simply gives the AI an almost UFO-like ability in the game, I've noticed. The AI aircraft are capable of speeds and maneuvering that the player simply cannot replicate. It's not harder enemies, its just enemies with capability you don't have.
