  1. S! ALL Big CONGRATZ. Well done and well deserved. Great job by everyone.
  2. S! Yes, All you need is the empty folder. The server will download the proper files into it.
  3. S! All I tried doing our usual multiplayer coop for career night in FC. I had not fully tested it and it was a huge flop. We did learn something important. Many mission designers add sounds and pictures. These go in a folder called "externalmedia". The stock BoX game does not have this folder. You may have problems or lock ups unless you have this folder. The pathway is data/ swf/ externalmedia
  4. S! All After a long hard fight Blue Team emerges with a decisive victory. We had many great engagements with the early plane set. There were epic battles over some of the targets. Over all it was great fun and very exciting. Big CONGRATZ to Blue Team. Well done.
  5. S! Luft Yes, time does fly and it is because of you and the others listed above that we have such a good organization and a lot of fun! Both congratz and thank you to ALL !
  6. S! All Only one more session. We have had some very good fights. Unfortunately in the heat of battle things can get out of hand. We have seen some unfortunate things said in chat. This is not good sportsmanship. Accusations in open chat are not acceptable. Participants engaging in this behavior will be sanction according to the rules and code of conduct. If you have something that needs attention please go through your team commander
  7. Voila Will probably be in next release. Expect in about 4 weeks.
  8. It is here. New update for BoX Il2 gets FW 190 D Tank Crew gets two tanks and new hi rez map FC gets D7 f
  9. S! All This week we switch sides. Blue team is Entente and Red team is Central. To all: "May your plane be swift, your aim be true and your enemy vanquished." good luck !
  10. Welcome. Not to worry. While many of us have been doing online flight sims for years, we are all just beginners. FiF = Flanders in Flames. It is the name of the tournament. It is a 2 hour event on Saturdays at 2 pm Eastern time. There is no German team. There is a Blue team and a Red team. One plays Entente and the other Central, We play two sessions and then the teams switch sides. The Entente become Central and the Central become Entente. This is to even out any advantage or disadvantage in the plane set or map design. After 4 sessions the plane set is upgraded and we do 4 more sessions. The tournament is centered around objective accomplishments. The objectives are designed to present the opportunity for aerial combat. Just shooting down planes does not make a win. It makes a lot of fun. The official registration thread is here. The only special requirement would be Team Speak. We communicate between pilots with it. You can look over various aspects of the tournament here.
  11. S! All We are in phase B. Our first session was very exciting. The fight at the end was epic- planes everywhere. More like the battle of Midway with both teams throwing planes at each other. Unfortunately with that many planes all in one place there were several collisions. I am sure there are people on both sides that think some of it was intentional. It is easy to say that it takes two to tango. That is not always the case. Planes get damaged. Pilots get wounded. Wings hide other planes. Someone has a higher ping. Shit happens. I would hope no one is intentionally ramming another pilot. That is just poor sportsmanship. The goal is to have aerial combat not bumper planes. Be that as it may, a JG1 pilot made a comment in open chat. That is unacceptable and against the rules. He has been admonished. If any pilot feels that another pilot has violated one of the FIF rules, or has acted in manner that is not in the spirit of FIF, he should wait until the session is over and report the incident to his team commander. Just a reminder. All 2 seaters may have just one gun in the rear. Likewise, be careful with the Halb Cl.II. It is allowed only one gun in the front. Do not use 2 guns on the front of the Halb Cl.II Limit two-seaters to their default armaments, with one or two forward-firing machine guns and only one rear-firing machine gun.The W12 had two guns front because that was the default and could not be changed. The default for the Halb Cl.II is only one gun. OK now lets go out there and kill each other !
  12. S! All Congrats to Blue team on their victory in phase A ! The early plane set is always a challenge. We had some very good fights. In session 4, the Red team had two planes hit invisible objects. One was found at the hangars of the airfield for Prison 1 on the Entente side. Still trying to find the other object. Now it is time for phase B ......... new planes, new challenges!
  13. S! All Moxy's explanation is the best I have ever seen. It will take some getting used to and experience to understand it more in depth. While you will have commanders planning attacks the game will decide if what you are doing is changing the war. You have an impartial judge of the success of your campaign. As the umpire said: "Play Ball !"
  14. If someone makes static models that just sit on the field, yes. If they have t be AI planes, no. BoX hates AI planes. The new AI eats up a lot of CPU time.
  15. S! Yes, FC allows many things to be changed for the better. One example will be bridges. The bridge will be the target. No AAA on the bridge. There might be an MG nearby. Also if it is like BoX, there will be people walking around the airfields. Much more life. The map will be much easier to understand.
  16. S! All IL2 Update. Mostly bug fixes and minor features for multiplayer. Some Tank Crew fixes. No new planes Read it here.
  17. S! All We have gone through the first half of phase A. Now we switch sides. Blue team will fly Entente and Red team will fly Central. Please remember FE2b is allowed two guns up front. The Roland and W-12 are not allowed two guns in the rear. Only one gun for the back seat. We have seen some glitches where a secondary mission is not activating. I have checked, checked and re-checked. No explanation. Sorry.
  18. S! All They posted a quickie patch for IL2. Now it shows previous chat. Other small fixes.

    FC Skins

    S! All Template for U2 is out I did some cheesy skins. They work and are the default skins on JG1 FC maps. That means you do not pick a skin or else they are under custom- not sure. Download link is in FC thread at IL2
  20. S! All Big sale on IL2 products. Anywhere from 25% to 60%. Update fixes several bugs. game should run much better.
  21. S! All Session one got off to a rocky start because I had corrupted the server file somehow. Fixed now. Blue team had a problem with the rescue mission. When completed, it did NOT give a secondary. Well the mission is perfect. Naturally. I flew the mission and NO secondary. I slapped the guy around and he would not talk. I looked the mission over. The trigger for the complete subtitle also activates the secondary mechanism. Not only is there a single trigger but there is a backup. I replaced the primary and backup and it works fine. ( famous last words ) Red team had a secondary subtitle with the correct name of the town but the wrong sector location. Corrected. Entente airbase at Firnsted is placed close to some trees. People were spawning in the trees. The base was moved forward. The shadows look strange but it works. Next- I found some invisible object at Sole Street airfield. It took quite a while to fully locate the entire anomaly. I was eventually able to mark the invisible structure and move the airbase. Do not fly near the water towers.
  22. S! All This Saturday, 26,January, 2019, there will be a Dry Run for Flanders in Flames Winter campaign. It may be Winter but the map is set to summer. Blue team starts as Central. Red team starts as Entente. Because this is a Dry Run, there is no death penalty other than the usual 5 minutes before you fly again. Special features for this campaign: Central will be using the W-12 float plane for spy pick up. The Spy may be on a submarine in the large northern bay. The Spy plane can land along the coast line or rivers on the Central side to complete the mission. He does not need to return to an active base. Instead of flak units along the Central coast, there are German Cruisers. The flak fence in NML has been changed to machine guns. 1 km is still the recommended altitude for crossing the front. As usual the General Capture and Spy plane can return to anywhere in friendly territory to complete their mission. The Prisoner Rescue plane must return to an active friendly airfield.
