  1. You, my friend, have a very strange idea of "fun" ... Kidding aside, I agree with you. I'd be up for an informal ROF run. Butzzell once talked to me about an idea he had. Recall when we were kids and we'd chose up teams for a ballgame or something? Who would be open for a semi-organized "pick up" game in ROF? Maybe run it for a week or 2. Vonrd is right though, many guys won't participate,( some don't even have it installed anymore), but if enough are willing and able, why not? Of course, I'm putting this out there without even considering Butz and the work that could be involved....... *edit* Just to be clear, I did have fun in BA even if it was *special* One thing I enjoyed most was getting to fly with some of you guys that I usually don't.
  2. It's bad. It seems like it affected the DVa and CLII worse than others, but most of the Entente guys are complaining as well. Can't dive away like they're used to. I'm staying away for the time being, just get frustrated.
  3. If you check on the forums there under scenario design you can find some excellent campaigns to d/l made by Eric. Recent updates have made some of the early ones obsolete and they act up from time to time however. Which of the modules do you own? Since I've grounded myself until this new DM gets worked out, I'm going to go ahead and get Red Steel.
  4. Been playing this for years... A great game.
  5. S! Butzzell, Is there any way to get weather info prior to Saturday launch?
  6. Really just curious, (I ran one Red S.O.B. outta there wondered if someone came back.)
  7. Quick question... Did Red get the Trench attack completed? Saw Klai had listed it complete, but it wasn't shown in the screen shots.
  8. Think you missed this one Klai.
  9. Snaggle, I've been using a TV for years. Started with a 32", now using a 42" since buying a new TV for the den. I've noticed no difference at all from a standard monitor. I will tell you that the one I'm using is several years old, refresh rate is only 60hz but even that has not been a real issue for me. FWIW I'd say give it a shot. GC
  10. Glad you guys liked that. If you haven't yet, take a listen to "Wolf Totem". Pretty cool what they can do with "traditional" Mongolian instruments. ( I mean come on... 3 instruments, 7 strings??) I've actually been listening to "Tuba Skinny" lately. Surprised myself but I found that I like 20's Jazz. (hey I'm nothing if not diverse😉) They've been busking on the streets of New Orleans for about 10 years now and are really just starting to get some recognition.
  11. One of the drivers that we see regularly was in a hurry to get back home so he could go see these guys. (In Nashville of all places) The Hu. Best I can describe them is a Mongolian heavy metal band. On his next trip around he showed us some footage from the show, he claimed they were great live. They also use the "Throat" singing style. Not really my thing... but I was impressed.
  12. Odd... it looks like all the screen shots omitted the text. I have 7 shots of the cockpit of a Halb. and nothing else.
  13. Yes. Fastest fill up I ever had.
  14. It was a good turn out. Hope to have more next week. No lag or frame issues, did notice a few dropped players. 'Dromes are just harder to find in general. It's a navigation skill, part of the game AFAIC. I had one contact that did seem to disappear as I zoomed in. Someone said that alt vis was on, that's when I commented. I think it was just more of the normal zoom issues discussed in forums. Spy pick up was a misunderstanding I think, maybe an icon issue. We did the pick up, and he said it was successful. The problem,(I think), is the icon failed to be removed and was tried again by someone else. Just as you said about Hospital icon. Cuban also did the HQ recon, but was shot down while RTB. He did it again, but couldn't get a subtitle on his 2nd or 3rd pass. *edit* Is it possible that the plane that the plane doing a mission like the Hospital or spy has to LAND at a field before the icon is removed? Did anyone get hit by flak? We had 1 or 2 damaged by ground fire but no casualties that I know of. Enemy Ace was not very aggressive. Had to get REAL close before he would engage. (and that aint easy when tryin to catch a Spad w/ Dr1's & PD3's) Some players,(including me), are a bit hazy on some of the objectives, we shall have to remedy that ourselves. Flyin Central isn't going to be very easy in this one!😉
  15. True blue to the end. Better dead than Red.
  16. I agree with Adler, core sides should try to stay intact unless numbers dictate a reorganization. JMO
  17. Question. Since the 11/9 mission is to be reflown, will we be using the odd or even map for the session on 11/16?
  18. Thats the procedure I'm talking about Von. Even if not discovered until late in WWII, perhaps devs were not aware of that. Just thinking out loud here.
  19. My ex-brother-in-law was a pilot and author and had flown along with some stunt team for an article he was working on. In high G maneuvers, he was instructed to tighten the diaphram in the chest and"grunt" to keep from passing out. (didn't work,we all got a laugh of the video with his head bobbling about while unconscious).. Perhaps that's what they are trying for.
  20. It's my understanding that we are going to try for 60 this week. Keep yer fingers crossed!
  21. Klai- you are more than welcome to join in if you get the opportunity. A few things... Next week the serrver password WILL be in effect. Also, the timer for death penalties will be running so there will be no questions as to whether or not you can re-fly. Hope everyone is having a good time, we are and we're learning a lot as well. GC
  22. Will we get FCII? I don't really know, but the fact that he specifically called it FC1 makes me optimistic.
  23. Evidently, the roster above was made directly from the poll. If you answered that you wish to fly Central only or Central preferred you were put in the Central column. Those that answered either side or both were put into the Merc's column. Of course we know that JG1 would all like to fly together, and it will probably not be an issue... but remember that slots are assigned on a first come basis. Any late arrivals may have to choose to wait for a slot to open up, or join the opposing side if there are open slots there. It really depends on how many show up at any given time. We have about 80 signed up to fly and 60 or so slots to fill. My advice... be early if at all possible. We need to remember too, that this is a "beta" campaign of sorts, (for lack of a better term), and may not be as "intense" as campaigns in the past have been. We wanted to see what works and also to include, (or attract), as many players as possible to generate interest. Most of us in J5 would like to fly Central, (for a change), but I know that some of us may need to switch also if things get too lop-sided. Bottom line is we want to give as many players as possible a chance to participate,including many newcomers who haven't flown in an event like this before. It may take more cooperation and understanding on everyone's part, but we should have fun. GC
  24. Just wanted to congratulate our Red counterparts on their victory in the Spring campaign. It was well fought by all, even as numbers began to dwindle it remained exciting throughout. Looking forward to renewing the competition next Fall... Enjoy your Summer everyone! S! GC
