  1. S! All Last year this was an exciting event. It was the first real RoF online tournament. They showed that it can be done. Those that want to participate should sign up soon. Official Registration Portal http://www.jasta5.org/events/bloodyapril/index.htm Be sure to follow the instructions carefully. Remember to sign up for their forums. This will give you access to the information needed, similar to what was used for FiF. I listed that I would be available for all missions all day every day. Yes, I am a glutton for punishment. This is a great way to have fun in RoF and meet a lot of people. S!
  2. S! All I think there is a large Belgian population playing RoF. Many of the HQ guys and I believe some of LesHellequins are Belgian. This helps broaden the market and show appreciation for suporters. A very good move all round. The addition of the channel map shows that new maps are possible. Eastern front? Middle east? Italian? The door has been opened. S!
  3. S! Lee Glad you had fun last night. RoF is a great sim. They have done well with the planes and the scenery. It just keeps getting better. Of course last night was a little disappointing with you flying Allied crates. You need to give up tea. Come join the good guys! Beer all round! S!
  4. S! All There is a great trailor celebrating RoF as on of the top 100 games. http://riseofflight.com/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=27203 S!
  5. S! Please remember that like all upgrades, you must do some checks after install. Profiles and key assignments Select gauges and other items when getting online for the first time. If you buy the pistol, do not shoot yourself in the leg and die. Shoot the guy in the plane next to you and watch him die.
  6. S! All Update 1.023 is out for download. Search lights yes, Halb no new flare gun feature. Will probably have to map some new keys. new pilot glamour items. Get that scarf you have always wanted or that 45 cal pistol for shooting yourself after you buy the glamour option. that is right, it is a purchase. Also comes with streamers and maybe a moustache. Everyone gets a red scarf to hide the blood. Your settings should stay the same except for Force feedback. You may have to check or uncheck that depending on your stick. My plane profiles stayed the same. You WILL have to go in and turn on gauges and your paint. N-11 has been tweeked. Unfortunately for Buzzsaw SE5a is still the same. There were some comments about bugs. Have not seen any yet. S!
  7. S! Odir Ooooooh skinning is fun. Moxy and Hett are good at it and can tell you more. Gimp is very good as is paint.net. Either way there is a plug in- it may be included in paint.net for DDS files. They know more. There are many videos on skinning on you tube. S!
  8. S! Very unusual site. Thanks for the link.
  9. S! Server donate page back up. Sorry for the delay.
  10. S! I think it looks VERY nicre. The subdued red color of the bar and other titles is quite handsome. The events page looks squished. Just a sizing issue. The forums do look strange with the black white thing going on. They probably have a separate set up configuration file. Not sur what to do there. Make everything the same neutral background? some kind of beige that blends into the sepia of the top picture? Probably too dark. Perhaps something lighter like the collor of the signature paper. Of course the signatures will all blend in and disappear. Perhaps a nice light green background with red text? Santa says go for it but I have my doubts. Perhaps just solid white and no stripes? No matter what, you can be guaranteed, fix one problem and another pops up. S!
  11. S! Sorry, my page is down. don't look.
  12. S! All Hopefully we will be improving the site within the next few weeks Untill then I have set up a basic description page for our server missions. Warning! this link is off site. http://home.nctv.com/jojo/Server%20list.html If you think we need adiitons or corrections, please post here. The missions listed were quickly put together to have something on the server. We will be adding more missions as time goes by. At this posint we have a stable unit that looks acceptable for Flanders in Flames. As we get the website in order we will move forward with FiF. S!
  13. S! All Well we keep climbing the server learning curve. This week the server was down for a couple days. hett and I thought maybe we had done something wrong with the ini file. After several go rounds with the server host, we finally figured it out. When the game is updated, we need to also update the server files for security considerations. Sorry about the delay. One more lesson learned. At present we have: DH2 vs E3 at Lille - this is Air quake with earlies. It also lets us organize practice for flight manouvers and tactics. We can easily get into 2 on 2 or other situations to practice manouvers. Autum at Warfusee - this is to practice normal ground level bombing and recons. The Ant Hill - This is late planes and allows practice ad straffing trains and trucks. Winter at Warfusee - This is the same as above but later planes and targets moved a little. HP and Gotha are air starts. The real challenge is landing the Gotha. Recons do not count if you die or crash. Landing the big planes will be esential in tournaments. S! All
  14. S! All There is a bug fix patch for RoF. It is a very small download. The ingame updater works well. The whole thing installs in about a minute. It is mostly to help with the graphics stutters. The SE5a dives better but climbs slower and the adverse yaw on the Fokker D7s has been reduced. RE8 is the next plane. With a top speed of about 100 mph, this should be a great addition for the early plane set. Finally an Entente 2 seater that a German plane can keep up with or catch. S!

    S!

    S! Flybert, AS Wurger said we are getting it together. It was good seeing you online the other night. We are getting our server operations in order. Another week and we will have it down. Our forums need some additions and then we will be set to revive FiF. Right now we have about 10 pilots that are flying. We have some of the old guard getting the urge to become active again. For some preliminary info on FIF , go to http://home.nctv.com/jojo/FiF%202.html See ya soon, S!
  17. S! Ok computer program lesson time : "back door" "A backdoor in a computer system (or cryptosystem or algorithm) is a method of bypassing normal authentication, securing remote access to a computer, obtaining access to plaintext, and so on, while attempting to remain undetected." I am willing to post a list per mission in the members only section. This would consist of a non publicized target who's destruction would cause the mission to end. For Dh2s vs E3 ( Which by the way only runs 70 minutes, I just did not want to change the text and I think 30 minutes is too short, how about 45?- Let the hageling begin !!! ) or any mission for that mater, I could place a balloon that is vulnerable at the German airbase. Killing it would end the mission. That way JG1 pilots could control the mission rotation without having to access the server. S!
  18. S! Hett Thanks. The more we do, the more we learn. S!
  19. S! All We are uploading a new mission to the server and are having a little problem with the ini file. It might take a little while to figure this out. That is just part of the learning curve for new software and systems. Thank you. S!
  20. S! All Hett does it again !!! He has a Paypal account set up for JG1. It accepts Paypal and most major credit cards. When you click the donate button you will be directed to the DtR business Paypal and see an entry for JG1 server donation. You do not need a Paypal account and for credit cards or other forms of payment, follow the link at the bottom of the invoice. The link for the donation page is : Server donation S!
  21. S! Great job Hett. Love idea #1 some questions... Should the server have it's own page where we can advertise the server service? Would a seperate server page like that be a good place not just for the donation button but a description of the missions that we run on the server? A monthly donation/ server fund totals report sent to HQ sounds good. Donations should be kept private. I would not want people that are unable to donate feel any preasure to donate. Right now, times are very tough for a lot of folks. We want people to be able to join and fly with no expectations or obligations. I know we have enough interest to come up with a few months service to see how the server handles with a full load of 40 people. That will allow us to evaluate the bandwith situation. I do not believe that we will have any problems but I am an optomist. I am curious to see what the server interface is like. I presume it will be a simple text dialogue box where we upload missions and can change the ini file. Simple but limited. S! and well done !!
  22. S! All Big news. Rolf Hett has been doing a CONSIDERAL amount of work investigating the various options for JG1 to be able to operate a dedicated server. He has found a company in New York city that will allow us to operate a server for $2 per player. That is not a per player charge like World of WarCraft. It is a charge for the total number of players online at any one time. At this time, final details of administration are being finalized. If all goes well, we will have a dedicated 24/7 server that can hold 40 people in the next week or so. The number 40 came up because it looked like what we would use for tournament play. Depending on interest and total activity, that number could eventually be raised if necessary. We all owe Rolf Hett a big thank you and a night at the HoffBrau for taking the initiative and doing a lot of work! S! Herr Hett and a great big THANK YOU !!
  23. S! Strik Good to see you. Try and be a good boy and ask Santa for a new computer.
  24. S! All Because the offer discounts for bundles, I did not think they would have any more plane sales. Well, I was wrong. Plane sale is going on now. I am not sure if they still give a discount for bundeling them but it is worth checking out. S!
