FIF 2017 "Fall Campaign" restart

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

As many of you were aware, during the October 21st mission of FIF, we had significant lag issues which forced us to postpone the start of the "Fall Campaign."

 

Butzzell is convinced that it was map related.  We may have crossed a line with the total number of airbases and the types of planes available.

 

On Thursday night, a new modified map was stress tested with about 20 people.  They popped flares, dropped bombs and shot everything up.  It went well.  And while some people said they saw a jitter or two, there is nothing to indicate that there will be any issues with using this revised map.

 

As a result, the "Fall Campaign" is going to restart this Saturday, October 28th at 2PM EDT / 6PM UTC.

 

We hope to see you there!

 

If anyone has any concerns, just let us know.  We're happy to help.

 

See you in the skies over France!

 

-Klaiber

S! All

 

 

Many thanks to Cuban for running Saturday's session. Congratz to Blue team for an outstanding performance. (you know payback is coming)

 

Well Snaggle looked at the server and saw that it was really low on RAM and barely running TS. So, I checked on services and what it would take to add some more RAM. Something must have changed. The server cost with additional RAM is now 25% less.  I put in the order but.... ooooops I screwed up and selected a new location.  It took two hours to transfer and then it took me two hours to reset the IP addys and get the pw right. That means the server has a new ISP addy.   JG1 TS will have a new addy. Hang on before you change anything. We are trying to get the name and addy set so it works with the old bookmark.

 

Famous last words.... everything should be fine now.

S!

 

Just a reminder Saturday, 4, November, 2017 is just the second mission for FiF fall campaign.  It will use the 'even' map and Blue team is still Central and Red team is still Entente.

 

 

 

Red team will also use the new wing mounted 50 caliber machine gun pods with 10,00 rounds of ammo and laser spotter.

I can't wait until we get to play with those same .50 cals in a couple of weeks!  :P  :D

 

Cheers,

S! All

 

 

Just a reminder, Saturday, 11 November, 2017 is the third mission for FiF Fall campaign. We will switch sides. Blue team is Entente and Red team is Central.

 

Should we really be fighting on the 99th anniversary of the end of the war? Since war is Hell, I guess the answer is Hell yes!

 

 

I have made some adjustments to the JG1 server. It is now running 3 cores and 7 gig of Ram. If we get lag, I am afraid that we must rely on the kindness of Mr. Cuban. I have already sent him the files.

 

As for as the JG1 server, if it does not work this  week, we will find a new server provider.

 

Apologies to all for our recent problems.

Phase A session 4

 

Well, the server is ok. Had some bugs with the mission.

 

Score for Entente is 14 not 16.

 

Problem with score was with rescue mission. I had a counter that was on reset after each use. It caused the rescue message that should be in the scores to display early and not display at the end. This same counter is responsible for inflating the score.

 

Next session we go to a new plane set and Blue team is Central, Red team is Entente.

Looks like server is ok. Stats are working.

 

We had a couple of glitches on Phase B session 1.  The HQ that the Entente needed to destroy had a vehicle in a hangar. This prevented the objective from being completed. The vehicle has been moved to in front of the hangar.  The Central prisoner escape did not work because the ambulance ran only half way to the airfield and stopped. There is some suspicion that he was shot by AI gunner. All Ambulances have been set to invulnerable.

 

With a glitch on each side it is considered a wash and the scores will stand as displayed at end of game.
