    Europe in Flames

    After FIF tomorrow, I would like to test the WWII tourney, EIF (Europe in Flames). Most of the pieces I have verified as working, so I want to load up a server with pilots and see what happens to the mission. Things to test 1. At mission start each side has a "Destroy enemy building" icons located at intersections of 4 sectors (ie: 2204, 2205, 2304, 2305). This indicates a target is located somewhere within 1 of those four sectors. The side only needs to fly near one of the targets, then they get a message "Enemy target has been found", and the old icon disappears, and the true target icon appears. These need to be verified as working. 2. I need suicide, err, I mean dare-devil pilots, to attack an airfield. Each airfield has fuel depots, ammo depots, and a HQ base (almost ALWAYS located off base, near a nearby city). If you kill all the fuel depots at an airbase, the enemy pilots can no longer refuel at that base. Killing the ammo depots stops rearming, and killing the HQ no longer allows the pilot to heal their wounds. 3. The player ground war elements need to be tested as well.

    Oculus Rift earphone failure

    While on my recent Elite Dangerous exploration, my Oculus Rift right earphone lost audio. By fiddling with the right slip joint on the headset, I could get it working again, but only intermittently. When exploring, I’m always lifting the headset so I can see to make notes. I figure with all the extra movement of I wore or frayed a cable in the slip joint. This seems to be a common problem with the rift as I was able to find a relatively easy fix on the web. It appears the earphone loses ground when the cable frays, so using a length of fine telephone wire to connect the botton pins (ground?) on the left and right earphone restores functionality. At least it did for me. Here are the YouTube links showing how it’s done. Left earphone fix, excellent step by step instructions. https://youtu.be/oLrT94lakpo Right earphone fix, basically saying the left fix works for the right earphone too. https://youtu.be/DNZ-i5K3fZ0

    Congratulations to all! Our team, along with The Art of War (TAW) out scored the enemy (64th and RvE), 1600 to 120! We were the only team of the four participating to destroy all the ground targets. This was JG-1’s contribution under the effective air superiority provided by TAW.

    Flying with the J.G. Boys

    Here's a little bit of the action from the last Campaign Day for FiF. It made for a fun change flying with J.G.1, and winging up with Barton was especially good fun, seeing as his Hunt for the Red Eagle series was what originally got me into Rise of Flight!! Cheers to all JG1 pilots and organisers! (Apologies for quality - for some reason I've been having some resample issues lately) And, just for a little extra historical flair, here's my report from that day's fighting! The Hunnish font is a little strange to read

    S! All Due to big disco session three is not being counted. Blue team was practically wiped out of planes. Red team still had planes and Blue had some people still flying, so the session went to the end as something to do for fun and to test the scoring system. It was fun and the tally system worked as expected. We will move on to session 4 and not replay session 3. We do not run into time set for Bloody April. The number of allowed players was set to 90. We had less than 60. There were no problems with people getting on the server but due to lower numbers it was not a real test.

    When I was a kid growing up... the guy that lived behind our house was an officer in the Kreigsmarine during the war. I learned of this when I was about 12 and said something to the effect that I wanted to go talk with him about his experience. I was forbidden to bring up the subject or to speak to him on such matters (1968) because … we just didn't talk of such things at that time. I didn't get it, we had family members in most of the branches of service in Germany and that was talked about... it was not a happy thing but it was known... what difference did it make?? 30 years later I said something about how much I regretted never being allowed to speak with him and my Mom said... "Oh for crying out loud... go talk with him... I am surprised he doesn't wear his uniform to the neighborhood meetings." Needless to say I was out the door and gone. He was an engineer (structural) and actually designed the "Tower of the Americas" in San Antonio, TX for the 1968 "Hemis-fair" of the same year. Turned out he was on 4 different U-boots (pronounced BOATS auf Deutsch) the last being aType-XXI. We had several long conversations and he pulled out his hat and badges, and a lot of other memorabilia, pictures... it was quite incredible. He said that when it was learned of his past, the San Antonio Express News newspaper put it on the front page (at the bottom) "Former Nazi Designs Tower" and later he actually found that article from the paper. He had quite a lot to say, but was very emphatic of the lack of belief or understanding that the American government showed at the beginning of the war. "Pauchenschlag" was the initial operation of the U-boots against American shipping on the Eastern seaboard. I had already read the book by Hardigan about this event and he confirmed it, every bit of it. The US never blacked out the Eastern seaboard during the war. They didn't want to traumatize the American people. The American Atlantic tanker fleet was all but wiped out. The ships were silhouetted against the light background and simply could not be missed. The CAP was flying any private airplane it could find to try and spot submarines which was typically enough to drive them away was augmented by forward thinking guys that hung bombs or depth bombs on their planes with more than one making a claim of damaging a U-boot. He told me that they had two guys on board that had grown up in the States and spoke perfect American English and they would nose their boat up on the sand on Long Island at low tide and these two guys would go into town and buy fresh vegetables and a newspaper before returning to the boat. They were close enough to Coney Island to hear the screams of the kids on the roller coasters and passed close enough to pleasure yachts to literally hear the ice tinkle in the glasses and laughter of the revelers onboard. He saw the movie and was extremely insulted and angered by it. The part of the "chief" that panicked particularly made him angry and pronounced the hell that they went through and not one single crew member, officer or enlisted was ever so cowardly. Also, the Hollywood crap about the "party officer" that was onboard he scoffed at terribly and said essentially, they would have pitched him into the sea the first night and that would have been the end of him. The whole time they were sinking the ships, they would lament among themselves, because the crews on those ships never had a chance. They knew that it was war, but many of them considered it basically murder because of this and many felt an ill omen and the thought that this would come back to haunt them. It did. 90%+ of the men serving in the boats was lost. The highest percentage of any military arm during any war. These things are rarely mentioned much less taught in school. I had spoken with people in Galveston that remembered the oil slick washing up on the beach, and in some cases actually seeing the fireball of a burning ship off the coast of Texas. "Torpedoes In The Gulf" is another book that is a good read if you are interested in this subject. Me personally... I hate ALL movies because of the corruption and absolute unwillingness to present the truth and the opposite more often, to bastardize and distort the story to make a buck. Pretty much anything after TORA TORA TORA I can't watch. Speaking of which.... the famous quote: "I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant, and fill him with a terrible resolve." was in fact written by Darrell Zanuck.... No.. Yamamoto never said it. see what I mean??? If you thought it was a real quote then you understand my point exactly. I apologize for the rant, I don't normally do this. ("Action In The North Atlantic" is back when they were still making great movies.)

    S! All As Klaiber posted, please check times. Personally I wish we would get rid off the whole daylight savings time thingie. A brief update. I think I have found why the totals page is not correct. I thought it was a function of counting the actual missions. The missions were being counted correctly. It was a link deep in the actual display array itself. It now works as expected. There was a bug in the Central HQ recon where it would sometimes display the HQ location incorrectly after the plane returned to base. There was a duplicate function that was fighting itself. The Central HQ mission now works as expected and the error is not reproduced. There was a problem with people trying to get on server. Server was set for 70 players. Updated server for 90 players.

    Medical Heresy

    Heresy is a risky matter. Lights! Action! Cue the mob with pitchforks and torches! Please note: The World Health Organization and the U.S. Center for Disease Control would probably state that what follows below is "Disinformation". I, of course, am not a medical professional. I cannot offer you any direct proof. I'm just some guy who takes vitamins and supplements. A lot of online stuff can certainly be dodgy and we can only try to judge what might be worthwhile. These are threatening times for all of us, but I would feel negligent indeed, if I did not share this. I do believe that this is sincere. I strongly suspect that they are not fools and I strongly suspect that they are correct. Orthomolecular.org publishes the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine. It also runs the Orthomolecular Medicine News Service (OMNS.) I would ask you to consider a recent posting, and the links attached to it, from the OMNS: Successful High-Dose Vitamin C Treatment of Patients with Serious and Critical COVID-19 Infection There's further comments on Vitamin C usage in a YouTube video (53 min.) with Dr. Andrew Saul who is an editor for the OMNS. (Full disclosure: Dr. Saul is not an MD, he is a Doctor of Nutrition, but many of the contributors and members of Orthomelecular.org are MDs and board-certified specialists.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JEuNQEn2k1A&t=100s

ROF, IL 2 BOS, Red Baron 1, Red Baron 3D, WOFF (that one doesn't always work with my computer for some reason), War Thunder (doubt that counts but I figured I should put it in here) How did you hear about JG1? Just googling for some potential people to fly with Is there anything else that you'd like us to know? I'm a guy in college, so there are certain days where I would not be able to get on early due to late classes. Also, I do speak German, so if there are any German players here I would be happy to meet them

    Everyone likes Uboats?? Having graduated from the United States Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA) and being a former Merchant Mariner. Mariners died "direct result of enemy action or as POW on American flag ships" according to U.S. Coast Guard, 1950 (excluded Army Transport and U.S. owned foreign flag ships) 5,662 Mariners died compiled by Captain Arthur Moore ("Careless Word" 1998 edition) 6,847 Mariners died compiled by www.USMM.org 8,421^ ^Additional 1,100 died of wounds later according to testimony before Congress. Comparison of Merchant Marine casualty rate to other services How many U.S. Merchant Marine and U.S. Army Transport Service casualties were there in World War II? We may never know the exact count, because the U.S. government never kept accurate records as it did for other services. The best previous accounting has been by Captain Arthur R. Moore, an independent researcher, in his great work, A Careless Word -- a Needless Sinking: A History of the Staggering Losses Suffered by the U.S. Merchant Marine, both in Ships and Personnel, during World War II, American Merchant Marine Museum, U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, Kings Point, N.Y., 1983 to 1998. Captain Moore's book lists approx. 990 ships. www.usmm.org list includes 1,600 ships. Service Number serving War Dead Percent Ratio Merchant Marine 243,000* 9,521** 3.90% 1 in 26 Marines 669,108 19,733 2.94% 1 in 34 Army 11,268,000 234,874 2.08% 1 in 48 Navy 4,183,466 36,958 0.88% 1 in 114 Coast Guard 242,093 574 0.24% 1 in 421 Total 16,576,667 295,790 1.78% 1 in 56 *Number varies by source and ranges from 215,000 to 285,000. War Shipping Administration Press Release 2514, January 1, 1946, lists 243,000 **Total killed at sea, POW killed, plus died from wounds ashore Mariner Prisoners of War ——————— FYI: the USMMA also lost 142 midshipmen during the war and is the only service academy to have a battle standard. So Im not a big fan! The more Uboats they sink in the movie the better! Very happy though that they have done the movie. Another movie you might check out is ”Action in the North Atlantic” book: https://www.amazon.com/Braving-Wartime-Seas-Graduates-Merchant/dp/1493186140/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?keywords=braving+the+wartime+seas&qid=1584060686&sr=8-1 😃 Snag USMMA ‘81

    On the prowl over Italy

    IL2 1946 4.13.4m Vanilla Missions on Ciel-De-Guerre are very heavy. They are created on the fly using Lowengrin's Dynamic Campaign Generators (DCG). Due to the great quantity of objects (moving and statics, in the air and on the ground) to manage, the creation of each mission can need up to 15 min... To join, stay connected and play the missions you must install IL2 Selector. https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,16403.0.html This video is about how we enjoy to use IL2 + Lowengrin's DCG. It is our tribute to 362nd Fighter Group. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_dYBOgLbHc On the prowl over Italy. Full mission, duration 52 min 24 s. Map: Italy Online Planes: Republic P-47 Thunderbolt. Leader: NAST-crapouillo. Wingman: NAST-idefix44. Take-off: Butino airfield (P2). Forced landing: Porto-Torres airfield (B5). Priority targets: Tanks (L9, I9). Trucks column (I9). Secondary targets: AAA. Results: AAA x 1 (M8) destroyed by NAST-crapouillo. AAA x 1 (M8) destroyed by NAST-crapouillo - Foggia airfield. Tank x 1 (L9) destroyed by NAST-idefix44. Tank x 3 (I9) destroyed by NAST-crapouillo. Trucks column x 1 (I9) destroyed by NAST-crapouillo and NAST-idefix44. AAA x 1 (I10) destroyed by NAST-crapouillo.
