    Some information I found about the photo I use for my JG1 profile... This picture was first published in the 1943 book "Balkenkreuz Über Wüstensand: Falbbirderwerk des Deutschen Afrikakorps" (The Balkan Cross over Desert Sand: A Color Picture Book of the German Africa Corps) by Gerhard Stalling. It shows a Luftwaffe officer with the rank of Oberleutnant playing cards in the North African desert with cigarette in his mouth. Pretty sloppy don't you think, when we know that he is actually a medical officer (note the serpent-entwined rod in his schulterklappen!). The equivalent rank for the Oberleutnant (First Lieutenant) in the medical service is Oberarzt. Looks like he had seen action for some time, based from the Eisernes Kreuz II.Klasse ribbon in his uniform. He also wears a Luftwaffe version of "knautschmütze" (crusher cap) which, basically a crushed schirmmütze (visor cap) Source: Book "Balkenkreuz Über Wüstensand: Falbbirderwerk des Deutschen Afrikakorps" by Gerhard Stalling http://lescolverts.forumactif.org/t135p45-la-luftwaffe-en-couleurs

    This ought to give the Oesau Boys a good laugh...my first sortie in a 109! After a couple practice take-offs and landings I headed over to Wings of Liberty. I may just stick with the SPAD

    *UPDATE* Start delayed one week to Oct 8th to allow time for the new update On behalf of the WingWalkers, I wanted to extend an invitation to JG1 flyers to join us in a Squad versus Squad Campaign ( BOS platform) starting October 1st. We will be flying on the Allied side, with JG1 fellas flying German ( not a big surprise there!). Maushake has volunteered to be the Air Marshal on the German side. The missions will be flown on eight consecutive Tuesday nights, the server will be up at 6:15 PST, mission starts at 6:30 PST and ends after 3 hrs. Every three missions counts as a year and the campaign spans 1942, 1943 and 1944. Air Marshals for both sides will check in with each other on Wednesday nights to clear up any questions or concerns from the night before. Our goal is to have 12 to 16 flyers on each side. For this run we are not running full "Dead is Dead". Pilots shot down will have a 20 minute time out. The rules and the calendar are attached below for you review. We have both an Allied and German forum on our website, and I have attached a link below as well, but if you are looking for privacy, best to post on your own site. We assume each squad will fly in their own comm's but will join up when the mission ends on one TS or the other, for feedback and collegiality. . We will post as much info as possible on this thread as well as on our forum, but Maushake should be the primary point of contact for the distribution of information. WWZed is the mission builder and will also be available for questions ( but he is good a keeping secrets, so expect some surprises). The server will be password protected and the password will be distributed through your Air Marshal. JG1 and the Wingwalkers have a fine tradition of collaboration and are two of the longest standing squads in the flight sim community. This is a bit of an experiment so please be patient with us. The goal in the end is to have a good time and introduce some high quality squad versus squad flying on week nights. Salute, WWGeezer Here are the rules Here is the link for our Website ....and here is the calendar

Repairs start automatically when the engines shutdown procedure is complete;51. It's possible to refuel in aircraft when it is near an object with the service parameter set to On in the mission file. The refueling process can be started and stopped using the new commands and only possible if the engines are shut down;52. It's possible to rearm in aircraft when it is near an object with the service parameter set to On in the mission file. The rearming process can be started and stopped using the new command and only possible if the engines are shut down; P.S. To add a custom photo to your airplane or tank cockpit you should replace existing default DDS image by another one in: <game_folder>\data\graphics\planes\<airplane_folder>\textures\custom_photo.dds or <game_folder>\data\graphics\vehicles\<_tank_folder>\textures\custom_photo.dds DDS image should be 1024x1024 in DXT5 ARGB 8bpp with mip-maps Cheers, Gen ;)

    Why does it require a Raspberry Pi? Couldn't you do the same thing by having two monitors off your video card and drag a jpg to the other screen? Klaiber: Lol you're lucky. My cats don't contribute. Here's my small setup. I like the Force Feedback. I am considering cutting away that curve on my desk so that I can mount my throttle below the desk.

    It look a lot of negotiation, trying to convince them that they wanted to be in the beds, but it works. In the above picture, my co-pilot (Stoli) is on the left. My navigator (Jinxy) is usually on the right, but was on shore leave when this picture was taken. Here's another showing the full crew complement.

    It was a historical trend! Tons and tons of German pilots did it, but the best example is Jasta 2's Albatros D.Is / D.IIs. Pilots would paint the first two letters of their surname on the fuselage sides as an identifying marking. For example, Erwin Böhme painted "Bö" on his fuselage sides, Karl-Heinrich Büttner painted "Bü", Dieter Collin painted "Co", etc etc etc The 'J2' way is a good way of avoiding clashing identifying marks as well. For example, you might get Luftritter and Labroisse, or Vikner and Vonrd mixed up if they had just 'L' or 'V', but 'Lu', 'La', 'Vi' and 'Vo' are all pretty easily distinguishable Another good example is Jasta 5's Albatroses. They used to paint the initial of their surnames on the undersides of the wings.

    S! All JG1 members and other squadrons, I just got this message this morning and I think that some of you might want to read this and join me soon in Wolfpack to hunt ships around the world! I was watching this game for a few months waiting for this new Single player option... read the PS section... would love to see a few sub pack hunting a convoy! Cheers, Gen -------------------- Ahoy Subsim members ! When we released Wolfpack many of you reached out to me and said, "But Onkel, I don't really play multiplayer. Please let me know when Wolfpack has a single player mode". Well my friend, the devs heard you and that day is here: it is my great pleasure to tell you that we just released the Wolfpack Lone Wolf single player package. Now you can have the same authentic u-boat experience but easily manage your boat solo if you choose. If you already own Wolfpack (thank you for your support!), you can go to Steam now and update your game. If you have been waiting for the right time to buy Wolfpack, there's no better time than now. You can get the game with the Lone Wolf single player update all for the same price as the original game. Just check out the terrific reviews! https://store.steampowered.com/app/490920/Wolfpack/ And we're not stopping here, no sir. The devs have a lot more amazing stuff to add to the game: a campaign mode featuring a highly detailed and authentic Scapa Flow mission with patrols, nets, blockships, and tidal factors. That is something never done by any subsim. Then we'll build a historic campaign mode with missions like Running Gibraltar, Operation Drumbeat, and D-Day; dedicated servers for 24/7 World of Wolfpack, save game functions, and that Holy Grail of all u-boat sims--playable destroyers for massive player vs player convoy battles. That's what your purchase of Wolfpack buys you. So, get your copy of Wolfpack now and enjoy the most realistic u-boat combat simulator ever. Your support means the game will continue to evolve and grow. Good hunting! Onkel Neal SUBSIM PS: Now with the single player mode it is easy to start a mission solo and allow other players to join the battle in their own subs as part of a wolfpack during your game. This really ramps up the action and makes the destroyers work extra hard to cover the whole convoy when it is being attacked from all sides! You can use the u-boat radio to communicate with any other captains. If other players join, great; if not, no problem, your game goes on solo. PPS: We also added a training mode and a quick encounter mode for immediate action!

    You missed the point. Running two videos off of one video card is like running it at an extremely high resolution. I don't care what kind of video card you have, that is extra work for it....not to mention the possibility of multi-screen bugs. Do you not know me by now? I am all about performance and winning 😂 Making things work off of single devices is secondary, to say the least. Nothing happens by magic 😉 Truthfully, a lot of this hardware I have (that monitor above used to be my primary monitor) is just leftovers that I've found a secondary use for. Thus, the secondary system. Did I fail to mention that the cost of that SBC (was) less than $75.00 ? There is some amazing shit going on, if you keep abreast of it. PS, miss flying with you. When are you coming back?

    Virpil MT50 Updates or better upgrades

    Last Tuesday, Virpil has started a vote competition for control panels (jet, spaceship, piston and helicopter). Nice entries, although to I had hopes that in the Piston category their would be panels for 2-4 engines. Why 5 or 10 buttons/switches on a panel? Ahhh now I understand just have to buy either 4 or 2 panels. Very smart. I'm not (yet) familiar with jet or helicopter controls, no real idea what I should vote. Suggestions? NB: Poll closes on 10/30/19 at 09:59 PM (probably Moscow time: GMT+3)

    update 3.201 is released

    I took 20 minutes in the P-38 and I love it. So many great things, but now I gotta be a better shot. Because if I hit a 190 wing with even just the 4 .50s, they all hit together and the wing shears off. If my aim is crappy, and it is, I miss entirely. I hope Repair/Re-arm/Refuel replaces the 5 minute respawn timer for DiD events. Instead it should be at least a 10 minute respawn timer. Wounded pilot in a high stakes situation asks himself, how wounded am I?

    Yes, we get oxygen sounds at 3k meters, also. Did they use supplemental oxygen in WWI? Hypoxic hypoxia should be modeled, instead. Like when WWII birds get our oxygen systems damaged (although I never stayed up there long enough to find out).

    Yeah. You probably upgraded firmware recently? Go into DIView, right-click on that axis, calibrate. Then hit "reset to defaults". What can happen, if you happen to have a failed calibration, the the end point values can get screwed up. If an end point gets a number in it that's less than a value that's somewhere in between, it will "jump" back once you surpass that number. Setting it back to defaults will make the low end 0, the high end 4096, and the middle 2048 (or something like that). You can readjust the calibration after that once it's working again, if necessary.

    S! JG1 race pilots, Don't forget that we are starting the Caterham Academy Series tomorrow night. If you didn't get some time out on the track, I would suggest that you take at least 1 hour before the race to get to know this race car. Hope to see you all tomorrow night. Cheers, Gen ps: if you never came to a race, don't forget, we have a password for the race server, please see that you have it before the race time.
