  1. Hello Sir,

    Sorry to bother you, but I think maybe you could help me. I want to make an effect similar to SF1 for AMRAAM missile, but for SF2. In SF1 it was called LongRangeMissileEffect.ini , maybe you remember it. Could you send me here the content of the MissileFireEffect.ini file for SF2 ? I can't find it in SF2 CATs (I play SF2 Israel only for now) or maybe I don't know how to find it. If I see the content of this file ( the MissileFireEffect.ini) I can copy/set the line for the shader in LongRangeMissileEffect.ini I want to create for SF2. I think it might work, but if I am wrong please feel free to correct me. Thank you for your time!

      Hello Sir,

      I tried your Hollywood effects pack. For AircraftExplosionEffect.ini two TGA files are missing:



      Do you have them please ? Thank you

    Just for clarification, Stary is the younger looking guy We had awesome time with Derk and his family, thank you!
  3. Why have I never thought of that old school touch and go rearming/refill? Must be memory leaks. @NIELS I very much understand your stance mate but the amount of work and the can of worms issues it opens when you factor in AI, mods ability etc is really big. Also the maps are really really compressed as Menrva points out. There are more important things if you want to attract new players, like lack of polished 3d hangar plane selection/loadout management scenes ye olde Novalogic sims / Aces High style etc. TK sort of heads in that direction with mobile offsprings but it is more due to differences between engines used. The SFP1 one doesn't really allow that, sadly. Interesting thing with that F-16 cockpit view in SFMC mobile reinforcement pack though, sort of if like TK is testing new ideas there.
  4. Quiet be Jules with pointing the obvious anti-Chinese bend there or you'll get us banned again. I re-read that 2014 topic in it's entirely, the guys pointing that the video is most likely faked in video editing software... gosh. Crowdfunding eh? Is SF2 on GOG and Steam since say, 2012? Humble bundle once a blue moon? GamersGate? Itch.io even? Noooo? Then good luck with any crowdfunding in the future. Playerbase is a thing only if you try your best to build yourself one. These days it's game Discord and Twitch channels. If TK is still living in 2002 modem-and-Altavista-search era it's his choice. Want to argue? Is this harsh statement? Show me the latest "Strike Fighters Legends" official launch trailer on Youtube, please. Or the shiny cinematic high production values "SF 2 Complete" one going viral via network of CombatAce aficionados, how many views does it ha... ahhhh, riiiiiight. See my point? Yes, still nice to see TK still pushing the semi-necessary update next year but there are other things that would give him more revenue. Like rebranding/re-launching the possible Win10 edition to break the SF-stigma (I can argue it is a thing) with say added seated VR to it, even limited in capacity. Ever played the House of the Dying Sun, Il2 BOS or even something casual like Overload? Works great with standard controls, mouse even (but can't beat VTOL VR or XP11 in terms of immersion). (And for the VR-haters, sorry the tech is battle proven and stays. Don't like VR? Go back to 2015 with your hate and try harder next time. You lost iteration 2 E3D6 61FE) Avionics -apart from floating immersion killing HUDs- and FMs are still rock solid as these are when you compare it to anything post-WW2 that is not DCS. Because there is nothing like this on the market. Not yet. Someone finally will notice the gap, TK. In -flight refueling? Players don't give a crap about in-game refuelling to be honest. Ohh you do? Delusional lot. Sorry to break it to you but you're minority. Three times the charm novelty not worth the resources that could be put into better presentation first and foremost. And don't even think again about making it "moar realistic" in times of DCS. Just don't. It's futile.
  5. Contrary to popular beliefs I am still around, but nah, never worked on Su-25 one, Su-22 I had in hiatus for 3+ years so can't say if and when given my current modding break/leave.
  6. realSKY Environment

    (clapping in polish) Dude this is the nicest, most natural feeling environment in ages! Makes SF2 look great! Highly recommended!
  7. Dear fellow: at the risk of abusing your kindness, I would like to ask you how I can achieve by touching the ini of your MissileInFlightEffect effect that the wake of the AIM-9 or AIM 7P missiles stays longer, that is to say that the missile leaves and the smoke trail stay longer without disappearing
  8. also I know you can't really tell what was TK's last response but would love to hear that
  9. Nah not dlls, of course not. Shaders, lots of things can be tweaked in shaders. Shaders are not core game files I'd say. Tools to automatically adjust things in HFD as the clouds altitude >>maybe<< possible fix I propose. If that is right track and doable. External tool. Injectors are external tools too not binded by any EULA as far as I know. Otherwise I wouldn't be legally able to post my ReShade-enhanced screenshots back in the day I used ReShade in my Korea install. Or fly payware WW1 opus magnum WOFF is. Check WOFF development and CFS3 engine code injectors especially around Phases 2-3-up to Ultimate Edition. Different engines and approach the Unity-based games and SFP1/WOX/SF2, not that I made such point at any stage (about TK "not being into PC anymore"; find it irrelevant) I am the sane person here, I don't talk about rewriting code lol. Think of better ways to spend 50k he wasnts for source code. Tweaking things is possible to an extend. I see alot of people like to throw into air things that are utterly unrealistic at all like A2A refuelling (shees you guys) Things I would like to see in SF2 are to some extend doable. I like to focus on things I would like to see in SF2 :) but let's not steer from Mue's topic here.
  10. Not really PFunk, depends on the scale and exposure. We're niche within niche as the not so accurate saying goes. But consider this -bloody YAP was pirating and reusing stock TK's carrier decks textures for own models and getting cash from selling that and no one in Austin,TX blinked. Heck even Ubi didn't bother about ripped SH4 hull n' portholes textures used on Rising Sun ships.
  11. Enoc what do you mean? Framerates? Nah I think not, you'd end up with unchanged internal pipeline after all.
  12. Dear Blackbird that is something I planned for few years. Specifically to pay from my pocket to some thirdparty HLSL shaders guy for firstly (always take small steps in such cases) simple things like diffuse-derived normalmaps on terrain, better clouds lighting/transformations, maybe some terrain additions etc. This option still stands even with lesser interest in SF2 on my side. Still, I want it upgraded at some point. Because let's be honest upgraded SF2 in VR would be awesome to fly. And I refuse to go back flying in 2d. My testings from past -posted even here at some point in summer of 2016 IIRC- indicate that clouds height pass infamous December 2010-b and 2010-c updates is tied with terrain's encoded maximum altitude in HFD file, matter of hacking the terrains into thinking the max alt is -customizable value-, the engine it seems treats that as base level for clouds height (call it z axis) spawning; the HFD file has range of altitudes the terrain has, say from 0 to 2600 meters, then if the highest value is mountain peak at 2600 meters then the engine apparently adds some values (and those seem not the clouds bases from environmentsystem definition) to push clouds higher and avoid clipping issues with alpha-based objects (sorry TK if you read this Sir, I'm calling this lazy problem solving) As for avionics updates, we have to thank fellow Team America here that booed and called faker the poor chinese (?) guy (MLRacing was the moniker) who hacked the libraries back in the day driving him off from more modding and sharing.
