  1. What more of a sign do you need? After years of silence and ignoring the SF2 community TK came out of nowhere and wanted money. He found a few guys, that had enough hope, that this move was not just some sort of fake. And after not getting enough, he decided to go back into silence again... In my opinion, maybe at one time for a very short time he really had the idea of doing an up-to-date version, but this moment is gone for a long time. I know what not to expect.
  2. View File SF2 Vietnam Scooters SF Vietnam Scooters - v0.95 =========================== *** SF2, SF2V required. Tested in full 5-merged installation *** This pack includes 111 Skins for Thirdwires A-4 Skyhawk-models during Vietnam war from 1964 to 1972. It combines the former v0.01 and v0.02 releases into 1 pack. The data.inis for the planes itself are changed from the stockfiles (rearranged weaponsstations, added invisible skids for belly-landings, added new droptanks and missilerails, etc.). Sometimes a skin is provided for 2 different Skyhawk-models. This is done to represent different changes througout an ongoing deployment: - transition from one Skyhawk-variant to another (for example A-4E to A-4F) - retrofit of ECM-equipment (Project Shoehorn) (A-4C to A-4C_65, A-4E to A-4E_65, A-4E_65 to A-4E_67) - change in Camouflage (VA-155) Skins included (Timeframe 1964 to 1972): (compl.) means, that skins, for all deployments to Vietnam are finished for a squadron.

    Seems like there's still confusion about the 3 files and unpacking them. So I will withdraw the packs when I'm back home. Sorry for the confusion, I wouldn't have thought, that this could be an issue...
  5. Scooters

    Seems like people have problems unpacking the addon. 1. Download BOTH files (SF2 VietnamScooters - Addon 1 - v0.02.7z.001 and .002) 2. click on file 001 and extract to a directory of your choice 3. THAT'S IT The AddOn is split into 2 files and after extract of file 001 is done, 7zip continues with 002. No manual extraction of the second file... I hope that helps.
  6. Scooters

    uploaded as an update. The first pack (v0.01) isn't included in the new pack (AddOn 1 - v0.02), because of it's size. Once the pack is complete, it will be combined into a single pack. Should be available soon. Have fun!

    Thanks. Well, pain not so much. It wasn't intended as a 1-man-project, so any progress at all is good nowadays and it's a good day, when its done, of course. But it's still fun to do and to learn stuff about the planes, the units and the people behind it. I work on this (not constantly) for several years now and it helped me also a bit getting over difficult times in some of these years. A long story short: It is and was fun, but I think it's time to move on after that mod. Thanks. Not much Skyhawk-fans left here, I know. Maybe I can generate a bit interest here and there in the little plane anyways.

  11. New Transparent Menu Screen

    Well, I'm sure you don't care - you showed your attitude already in the past. Remember? Do whatever you like. As that's the attitude from people like you here lately, I'm out. Have fun, trolling around. I am pretty sure this site would be nonexistent for a long time, if run by you and other likeminded.
  12. New Transparent Menu Screen

    Who needs this? Some pics, you probably found online and 5 minutes of work? *yawn* Please "be more creative" - if you catch the drift. https://combatace.com/files/file/17924-italy-southern-europe-1993-2006/?tab=comments
  13. You could model in the newer version and export to LOD with 2.79. Maybe it works. I did a quick test some time ago and I didn't see any obvious problem. But it was a quick test only, as I am used to the old UI and didn't have to motivation lately to relearn the new UI.
  14. If the already given tips didn't work 6 years ago, then I guess the guy has stopped trying to fix them in the years between then and now.
  15. DisplayWidth=3840 DisplayHeight=1600 3840 divided by 1600 = Aspect-Ratio of 2.4 I got problems with anything above 60Hz refreshrate, but at 60 is works fine.
