  1. I'd be grateful for a Halb skin! S! Maus
  2. Weird ... it was just the usual promotional e-mail I get from them when there's an update or sale or something. Maybe you unsubscribed from their mailing list? (It was a bit weird ... the e-mail said 'Please close the launcher and download this zip archive. Extract the .DLL file it contains and replace the old one located in [your IL-2 installation folder]\bin\game folder with it (Windows will ask if you want to overwrite the old file, confirm). After doing this, run the launcher again and it should update the game correctly', but there was no zip file attached. So I went to the forum a
  3. The e-mail I got from 1C announcing the update mentioned a .dll file that needs to be replaced before updating the non-Steam version. You can find it, and instructions, here: https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/52829-game-version-3102-discussion-pzkpfwiv-ausfg-halberstadt-clii-bristol-fighter-f2b/?tab=comments#comment-800023
  4. This looks like the original Red Baron ... I think the game you're thinking of was a different one. I can't remember what it was called, but I do remember playing it, and you could send or receive challenges in the course of your career. I seem to recall a graphic of a glove being thrown down when you were challenged by an enemy ace!
  5. Archibald, certainly not! Welcome back! S! Maus
  6. Yes, Hotlead, that's the same Black Watch! My great-grandfather was responsible for raising its first battalion in Montreal just after war broke out in 1914. Talbot, I believe his medals etc. are in the hands of his grandson, my uncle!
  7. Yeah, a regiment consisting of a bunch of guys in kilts killing everything in their path ... pretty much GoT
  8. This article was posted by the Montreal Gazette the other day, so Gen. Markof may have seen it, but others probably didn't ... this is my great-grandfather! https://montrealgazette.com/news/local-news/history-through-our-eyes/history-through-our-eyes-april-20-1955-a-long-serving-soldier
  9. Yes, very helpful! I've currently got my PTT assigned to a key which is mapped to a joystick button, but I guess this means that if I need another key for something, I can un-map it and enable the game controller button just by itself for PTT. Thanks!
  10. Thanks to Luft's help, here's the picture for modellers to have a laugh!
  11. ... edit: it looks like I can't upload a picture, nor, apparently, can I just delete a post. But rest assured, it was a funny picture!
  12. Thanks so much Vonrd! S! Maus
  13. I just heard about this on the news tonight, and thought it might be of interest! https://globalnews.ca/news/4680928/saskatoon-vintage-german-fighter-plane/
  14. I'm a bit more of a Grinch, so my favourite Christmas-truce-themed movie (and novel) is 'A Midnight Clear' 😉
  15. Congratulations to all! It was a great tournament, and everyone gave their best to it. S! Maus
  16. Good news! I just got an e-mail from ACTRA saying that both they and SAG-AFTRA have lifted their Do Not Work notices on this film. The producers have signed the necessary recognition and security agreements, so we can watch the movie with a clear conscience Now, whether I can convince them to cast me is another question altogether ...
  17. Yes, it seems something is very wrong somewhere ... I'm not at all sure what's going on, but I know that it's _very_ rare for our union to issue a notice like this (I think I may have seen just one other similar notice in the past 10 years or so), so it sounds like something serious.
  18. https://www.navytimes.com/off-duty/military-culture/2018/08/28/midway-remake-to-start-filming-next-month-on-oahu/ I hadn't heard anything about this movie until today, when I got a message from the Canadian screen actors' union (ACTRA) telling its members not to work on it. The Canadian union got involved because some of it will be shot in Montreal starting next month -- it seems an odd choice of location, but then again I guess this portion of the shoot may be studio work (like the movie '300' which was almost entirely shot in a Montreal studio). Apparently the American union (SAG-AF
  19. The summer theatre season will be over by then, so I'm hoping to be able to make it! S! Maus
  20. Sounds like it was a great time! Looking forward to being able to join for some of these when my schedule finally allows ... S! Maus
  21. Sorry to be missing the fun! Unfortunately the next few weeks at least won't work for me ... but I hope to rejoin the slaughter soon 😉 S! Maus
