  1. WINDOWS 10

    Yes Spinners been a while since my last visit, had totally lost WOE. Well I got the game back up and running but the Frame Rate is very poor. It is not really playable as it is. But at least it is working again. Any suggestions of how to improve Frame Rate. I have adjusted the graphics settings down to a moderate level but I don't want to go any lower as I am loosing image quality.
  2. WINDOWS 10

    Thanks for you replies guys, - will have a look at the suggestion made by Geary and if that don't work then SF2 may well be the last resort. Thanks again for all of you replies chaps. Good to know that you can get some good advice when you need it from other Combat Ace members. Much appreciated. Cheers Rusty
  3. I think this question has been asked before, but just for my own peace of mind I think I will give it one more go. Is there any way to get SF1 series games working on Windows 10. Sadly, I upgraded to Windows 10 a few months ago and since then I have been unable to get Wings over Europe SF1 working. I have tried every thing I can think of and every sensible suggestion, but I think the overall reason (as has been suggested) is that the older generation of Strike Fighters games are not compatible with Windows 10. The game runs but it is incredibly poor and eratic, and crashes to desktop are frequent. If any of you guys have got WOE SF1 on your Windows 10 rig and you have got it running well then I would love to know how you have got it set up. Any advice or info would be most welcome. Thanks RUSTY
  4. What !!! another rhinoscerous of a frikking tank with a big fat mega oversized gun. Shit what next. !!!
  5. That Soviet Su-152 is one magnificent mega sized beast. !!!!! Frikking Behemoth sized gun. !!!! You could probably squeeze a small child down the barrel. !!!!! Not something you would want to mess with if you were in a bog standard Panzer III or IV !!!! Maybee if I was in a Tiger 1 with my trusty 88 mm, I might not shit my pants at the sight of it trundling down the road towards me with that big fat gun pointed right at me. If I got lucky and put a round into the rear engine compartment I think I would be okay. !!!! Phew !!!!! what will those frikking Ruskies come up with next. !!!!
  6. Hold Her Steady Now!

    Somehow I can see the fuel-line being chopped up by the propeller. Is it just me being paranoid. !!!!
  7. Windows 10

    Already tried that, but thanks anyway VonS.
  8. Windows 10

    Well I have installed Windows 10 on my new rig and got it working okay, but sadly I have lost First Eagles. I have tried various suggestions from posts which I read at this site but sadly, it will not run anymore. The game will open and display but when I create a mission and try to load it, the whole game crashes to desktop. Any more ideas or useful suggestions will be gratefully received. Thanks in advance. Rusty
  9. I am glad you liked the quote. I have added some captions to the tank picture. Hope you like it as much. !
  10. Might I ask if there are some demos of the games in the list. Perhaps to try out before buying. !!!
  11. Windows 10

    Thanks for the advice VonS I think I am going to go ahead with Windows 10 .......
  12. Windows 10

    I recently had a few problems with my existing computer and I have decided to upgrade to Windows 10 whilst I am having the repairs done. Might I ask you guys here at Combat Ace if First Eagles 1(First Generation ) runs okay on Windows 10. Thanks in advance for any advice or information you can offer. Cheers RUSTY
  13. Australia forest fires

    I think we will all be long gone by then................The human race is Fu#ked.!!!!!!!
  14. Australia forest fires

    Building houses in the middle of a forest is a little bit absurd, especially if your house is made of wood.!!!! Quite obviously if there is a large scale forest fire and your wooden house is right in the middle of a blazing forest you will probably see your home and all your possessions go up in flames. !!! Then we get people saying why has this happenned.!!!! We need to be more careful where we build homes and avoid building settlements in high risk areas.!! The other concern is that we are turning the planet into a concrete jungle and occupying all the green spaces, leaving no room for nature and wild animals which form part of the ecosystem. Once the planet's ecosystem goes , we go with it.!!!
  15. Australia forest fires

    I hate to say this but we are going to see more and more Wildfires and devastation to forested areas as global air temperatures rise. As the bush and forests become more dry and arid it only takes a small spark to set a blaze going. !!!! We humans are responsible for churning out thousands of tons of carbon based gasses and releasing it into the atmosphere, and we are starting to pay the price for our ignorance. !!! In Britain last year (2019) we witnessed the highest summer temperatures ever recorded for June, July and August. I thought that Global Warming was just something that effected other people but at the height of summer last year my plastic patio table which resides on my patio outside melted due to the extreme heat. It has been outside in the same place for several years and it's never done that before. !!! My Cat usually spend most summers outside on the back garden relaxing and snoozing, but last year he was clearly in distress due to the extreme heat and was panting a lot and his breathing was extremely rapid and laboured. I had to take him in the house until early evening when the heat began to dissipate. Clearly something is changing and it's not good.!!!
