  1. AI pilot query

    HA! Guess I need to look at which message I'm answering. NAH, that ain't no fun.
  2. AI pilot query

    Hello T 12 To get the different views of your aircraft, toggle F1 to the chase view, you should be able to use the arrow keys on your keyboard to go 360 around your aircraft. If you look in the key map in the workshop I think there are other keys on the number keyboard that you can use as well. To look at other aircraft toggle F1 to the Player/Target view which is just the rear of your aircraft. when you hit the tab key it will mark the next closest enemy aircraft with that yellow circle thingie. you can toggle through them. Make sure you have selected aircraft only on the Tac or you will get views of yourself from the ground as well, this limits the views to aircraft only. If you want to see other friendly aircraft hit Control + tab to toggle through these. Each of these views will be of that aircraft viewed as if you were looking toward your own plane. You can increase or decrease the size of these views but not the angle. If you are wanting to make good screenshots of these views you will see that they have the yellow circle on them. In order to clean this up you will have to take your screenshot to your Paint program or GIMP or whatever editing program you have to paint over that spot. Clear as Mud? Jerry
  3. MODS release

    I have sent the 10th version of the Alternative Skins Mod to Sandbagger, so it should be posted sometime soon. There are about 80 new personal skins in this new release. Some are the markings on documented aircraft for which the pilot is not known, some are for use with a certain Staffel but most will work in a number of units. Look at the ReadMe file and it will explain the reasoning behind the markings.
  4. Mission end

    looking back at my notes for previous problems I see that, in addition to disabling the Splash I also find it useful for follow item 47 and disable the campaign videos and music.
  5. Mission end

    MAYO If your still having problems try item 65 on the FAQ. I know it says this is for laptops but the Splash screen in shell music always causes me problems. Jerry H
  6. MODS release

    Wouldn't let me upload these yesterday, try again today
  7. MODS release

    NEW SKINS RELEASED All two-seater skins have been removed from the User Skins, More Skins and Alternative Skins mods. I have placed them in a separate Two-Seater Mod. So now there are four. A number of new fighter skins have been added to the Alternatives for Staffels 37/40/41/41/43/44s/45/46/48?49 and 50. No 8th skin pack was created for these latest skins. Instead, the 96 new fighter skins have been added to Pack 1 to fill up the space left by the removal of the two-seaters that were there. There has been significant shifting of skins between mods and numerous tweaks and corrections. So, it will be necessary to download all four mods to avoid duplications and that warning message that comes up if you have the previous version of one of these Mods and add the new version of another that has some of the same skins in it. The ReadMe files have been changed as well. I eliminated all the change logs as most of them are not really relevant and have become tedious and confusing over time. They could still use a little work but they’re good enough for now. The most significant feature of these new releases are the Roland skins. These are possibly going to be added to the WOFF Skin Pack in the future, but I am releasing them in the interim. The panels and fittings have been altered to represent six different production models, along with various new camouflage schemes. There are fewer unit markings and some new ones that have a historical basis. I have moneyed around with the Pfalz DIIIa skins. I started out just adding some bling to a few, examples below, but ended up adding some new features to them. I, evidently, have no self control. OvStachel is working on a complete refresh of the Pfalz, which will take some time. In the interim, I have reworked the lozenge wings and fuselage fittings on my modified skins, and I will rework some of the earlier ones as time permits. The skins in the WOFF Skin pack do not have these modifications unless they are ones I modified previously for the Alternate Skins Mod. When Ov releases his new Pfalz in the future, these will all have to be pulled and redone if they are not part of his refresh. The refresh includes a new mapping for the Pfalz skin, and the present ones will not work on it. But that won’t be for some time, possibly years . I have made four new personal skins with these modifications for you guys to use for your own personal markings, or just to fly as is. For references on the fabric application, shading, fitting and other changes to the skin, I mostly used, Windsock’s Datafile 21 and their “PFALZ DIIIA AT WAR!” volumes 1 and 2. The Wingnut Wings website was also very useful. Plus, I referred to mockups of OvStachel’s new work for comparison.
  8. I think it would be a great visual addition to have the flight leaders and the player, if he is flight leader, send up flares for some of the commands he give, especially for rejoin and return to base.
  9. Jumped on the back of a Lord who was trying to get away and murdered him...set him on fire...my usual Knight of the Air thing.
  10. They're not on the screenshot. I had everything paused to take the shot, then when I came back to the cockpit view I had Nieuports up my butt. Just relaying how many things are going on at once here.
  11. Was patrolling over the Ypres battlefield (3rd one). Was very impressed by all that was going on at the same time. Ground bombardment, infantry attack you can't see from this height without labels, Archie fire, rain and you can see lightening striking in the distance (love the lightening). On top of all that, we (Jasta 18) are about to be attacked by some Nieuport 27s. Amazing!
  12. Anybody else out there having problems after installing V1.32? Began to get error messages right off but could still get the sim to work. Now, after a restart it's a no go from the start, usually. Sometimes I can get to the start mission screen but then it's a runtime crash. Used all my little tricks from the past but I'm still down. Hate to have to do a fresh install but I may have to.
  13. As you will find posted in the Mods Release thread: Sandbagger will be posting the re-release of all three Jerbear skin Mods shortly. This is the 4th release of the More Skins by jerbear Mod and the 8th release of User Skins and Alternative Skins. There are three packs (1, 2 and 3) in the User skins Mod. (638 skins) Four packs (4, 5, 6, and now 7) in the More User skins Mod. The 7th skin pack (202 skins)is now added to thid mod making it 721 skins. The Alternate Skins Mod is only one pack with 216 skins. A number of changes were made to the skins in the first 3 packs, which are contained in User Skins by Jerbear. These do not replace any WOFF Skin Pack skins Pol asked me to do some simple re-work on the Roland CII skins. I got carried away with the project and ended up doing much more than was requested. These are still the same base skin, I believe Makai made the skins along with some help from a few others. My changes are just in the drawn lines and camouflage patterns. The skins are supposed to be released in a future update, unless Pol wants some more changes to them. I re-worked and moved all the Roland CII ace skins to Pack 1 in the User skins Mod, there are 71 Roland CII ace skins. Shots of the DVII OAW are in the Mods Release thread. I will try to get all the Roland shots this thead will accept her ROLAND CII skins As I said before, Pol asked me to do some simple re-work on the Roland CII skins. I got carried away with the project and ended up doing much more than was requested. These are still the same base skin, I believe Makai was made the skins along with some help from a few others. My changes are just in the drawn lines and camouflage patterns. The skins are supposed to be released in a future update, unless Pol wants some more changes to them. There were four basic styles as far as appearance and I recreated them with new drawn lines on Makai’s base skins. This is all based on Windsock Datafile 49, the information on the Wingnut Wings site and Jack Herris’ “Roland Aircraft of WW1” along with more information in some of his other books. The four basic types I tried to introduce are first production batch, third production batch, the CIIa and The CII (Li). The one with the checked underwings is a 2nd production batch Roland, the only outward difference from the 1st batch is the national insignia placement. This is all I can get on this thread so there are more shots on the Sim/HQ site if you want to see them.
  14. MODS release

    7th Skin Pack Sandbagger will be posting the re-release of all three Jerbear skin Mods shortly. This is the 4th release of the More Skins by jerbear Mod and the 8th release of User Skins and Alternative Skins. There are three packs (1, 2 and 3) in the User skins Mod. (638 skins) Four packs (4, 5, 6, and now 7) in the More User skins Mod. The 7th skin pack (202 skins)is now added to thid mod making it 721 skins. The Alternate Skins Mod is only one pack with 216 skins. A number of changes were made to the skins in the first 3 packs, which are contained in User Skins by Jerbear. These do not replace any WOFF Skin Pack skins Pol asked me to do some simple re-work on the Roland CII skins. I got carried away with the project and ended up doing much more than was requested. These are still the same base skin, I believe Makai made the skins along with some help from a few others. My changes are just in the drawn lines and camouflage patterns. The skins are supposed to be released in a future update, unless Pol wants some more changes to them. I re-worked and moved all the Roland CII ace skins to Pack 1 in the User skins Mod, there are 71 Roland CII ace skins. In the Alternative Skins Mod by jerbear I have completed a Fokker DVII OAW covered in five-color fabric. The skin three versions, early, mid-production and late-production models. I'll post however many shots this thread will allow and put some more on the Screenshots thread. You can go to SimHq and there will probably be some more there. FOKKER DVII OAW with five-color fabric covering. I felt the five-color fabric was a significant omission from the skin pack. The fabric may seem a little bright compared to the four-color Fokker built and five-color Albatros built machines already in the skin packs but, according to information I found in Windsock’s “Fokker VII anthology 2.” Dave Roberts wrote on page 22 “Incidentally, every confirmed DVII sample I have handle, and all the capture and technical reports I have read for the type, indicate straightforward clear doping of fabric, without any special finishing coat. Some aircraft apparently had brown varnish or matt lacquer applied, but it was far from universal. For the pattern direction and placement of fabric panels I relied on information from the above mentioned publication on information from Wingnut Wings. Some of these were used for new skins in Pack 7, but five versions, without any unit or personal marking are included in the Alternate Skins Mod. Some are in clear dope while two have the transparent brown dope over the fabric. These are provided for those who want to use them for personal skins and add their own markings. The middle shot shows the brown tinted dope. These others are just randoms from the 7th skins pack, I will put the Rolands in the Screenshot thread.
  15. slow slide

    Haven't managed to take a decent photograph yet. Hard to juggle everything the pilot needs to do and take the photo as observer, even with Level Auto Pilot.
