  1. I'm with GC, I used to use a 60 Hz 32" monitor before what I have now, and I'm seriously considering going to a 43" TV again (that is the maximum size I can fit on my space, and it's only about 2 feet away from my eyes anyway). I'm pretty sure Butzzell uses a big TV; and for all the supposed gain of having an actual gaming monitor, I haven't seen anything that I consider game-changing in doing so, and honestly I think the color might actually be better on the TV. I think strictly with regard to "our" game, having the larger size is the one thing that you're really going to be the most happy with and what's going to help you the most; and the price difference between an actual gaming monitor and a regular TV is so striking, it really does tip the scales a whole lot in that direction. The only real "limitation" is that you're "only" going to get a 60 Hz refresh rate, maximum; but, you are to consider that an 80 series nVidia GPU can do that all day long with absolute maximum settings in the game....and that you probably drop down to that range anyway in the most demanding situations. You are not going to notice any slowdowns because you should end up running at 60 Hz basically all of the time, even using standard V-sync instead of the possibly available G-sync. Beware of TV specs that claim higher refresh rates; in almost every case their true refresh rate is 60, even though they say something like 120 or even 240 Hz on some. They all call it something different, every brand has it's special name, because according to their processing they say it makes it "seem" like it twice as fast, but it just plain isn't. But that doesn't really matter since you are not going to see the difference between a rock-solid 60 Hz and a varying synced rate that sometimes may drop down near 60 Hz in certain circumstances, if you have a GPU for which 60 Hz at any resolution is a walk in the park. I've personally had a suspicion for a long time that these games are basically designed around 1080p, and work the most trouble free that way. Varying from that is where all the potential trouble begins; and VR seems to be a huge source of potential trouble, or at least limitation.
  2. You can't just add any old number of planes, because there's a ratio of main/secondary plane types we're trying to maintain; and then you also have to take into account the 50/50 use of the Pfalz and Alb, since the Central side has one more scout plane type available for use than the Entente side does. In order to keep all that in line, the next number from 30 total you can go up to is 36 total; if more than that is needed, the next number up from that is 42 total. He is trying 36 first. It will be looked at with that number and then adjusted further if: 1) needed and 2) possible. The server does have limits.
  3. Better figure out the file names, buddy. Before putting this file in, I have 4 different Dr.I files for you; two sets of them the same or nearly the same, with two different file names. The "early" ones are: ! JG1 FokkerDr1 Goat.dds (*) ! JG1 FokkerDr1 JG1 Goat Early.dds (both of those are the same file) Then the "late" ones: ! JG1 FokkerDr1 JG1 Goat.dds ! JG1 FokkerDr1 Goat B.dds (*) I deleted the ones which I assume are obsolete, keeping the ones that match the naming convention most closely. Hopefully those will match the file names of the ones you use, or else I won't see them when you choose them. I put an asterisk by the ones I kept; hopefully those coincide with yours. So the early one is the one you just posted above, and the late one is the one that doesn't contain any yellow. Fingers crossed 😉
  4. And now the Entente Skin- The closer you look at these, the more I think you will like them. I urge you to give them a try! U2VS Fictional British Skin
  5. ALL: Just wanted to call your attention to this post concerning the main JG1 FiF skin pack: If you overwrite your existing files with the skin pack files, it's possible you'll lose correct, current updated versions of my files. If that happens, you can correct it by downloading the updated versions of the problem files in that post. If you're at any point confused, you can always get the most updated and correct files for ALL of my skins HERE You can't go wrong by overwriting whatever you have with what's contained in that download. Apologies for the confusion, many thanks for your indulgence. S!

  7. Working on the Entente (British) version now.
  8. That explains it....former Black Haze pilots are banned as a matter of course 😅 Luftritter- (former Black Haze pilot) 😁
  9. And now for something completely different 😁 U-2VS Fictional German Skin. A lot of hard work went into this one, I hope you'll take a look. Could be personalized with this as a basis. I was thinking of adding a stork-carrying-a-baby emblem, keeping it simple. One minor point of failure was that I couldn't find a way to make the spinning prop not green. I swear there is nothing on that file that changes that. But I stand to be corrected by more experienced experts. Enjoy! U-2VS Fictional German Skin Entente skin to follow if there's any interest....
  10. 22 MB = 0.022 GB. That's 2.2% of one single GB. Just in case you were operating under a mistaken assumption. Drive on, sir! S!
  11. These don't have to have separate links guys; one stop shopping is nice 😊 a single all inclusive zip file for individuals or squadrons would make things simpler, and you could update it over time just by editing the link, and then maybe make a new post saying something to the effect of "O.P. updated for revised and/or additional files (date)". Keep 'em coming, your work much appreciated! 👍 S!
  12. Well if you do rename them, if everybody who has already downloaded them with the old file names doesn't rename their files, they'll never see them when you use them. However, since your post hasn't been up that long it might not be that big a deal. As for me, I'll just re-download them under the new names. But it's something to keep in mind, for the future. S!
  13. Let us know if you ever change the file names, Daedallus. Some of them are hard to tell they belong to you.
  14. Agreed. Although it wasn't quite as much of a problem for the uber-Camel to eventually catch up to that D.VII(F?), he practically flew right over us without engaging. Luckily he flew a rectangular pattern and stayed in his sector, so at least we didn't have to chase him all over Hell's half-acre.
  15. Great find, Heinrich! Looks like a fine tool for an ambitious mission planner. 😊
