  1. The WWII training videos are good sources for takeoff and cruise settings. The original operating manuals are where you will get military power, cruise and landing settings. I got the economy cruise settings from literature about Charles Lindbergh flying the P38 in the Pacific. It’s not in the manuals. 😉

  3. Not sure who got your troll up today, but I see a thread lock coming...
  4. You can actually do that too. You can left click on your second plane then right click to get a drop down list. From the drop down list, select object menu and then “find target”. You right click on the leader and your target link is done. It’s the same process as back in the day... A large percentage of the tasks can be performed with right and left click, drag and drop, and copy and paste. Im glad you found your solution to that particular issue, but you could have asked the question without all the speculation that it’s somehow the MEs fault that you don’t understand how it works.
  5. Sorry I missed this until now.... The ME doesn’t take years to learn, but I guess you have to enjoy the journey, not just arriving at the destination. I didn’t realize it was so difficult for most people to use. I just thought they (you, them, those other people) weren’t bothering to put the time in to figure it out. Oh well, as Gambit said... the missions are not the same now, they are much better. If that takes a little bit more effort on our part, then so be it. Other than the lack of an undo key command and a random CTD here and there, I think it’s excellent. I’m really looking forward to all the new content that some creative and positive people I have been having discussions with are working on. I would guess that in about 3 months this dysfunctional and difficult ME is going to produce some really entertaining and challenging additions for the flight simming community.
  6. I guess everyone is entitled to an opinion....
  7. So you can’t hear your motor? Even with a full face helmet on, I can clearly hear the exhaust of my 1200 Sportster. It has short pipes behind my right foot and I don’t have to look at the tach because I can hear the rpm. The wind noise does drown out Bluetooth stereo speakers inside my helmet, but the motor is still easy to hear. And it’s only 2 cylinders, not 12 or 18. I do have to admit that around 100 mph the wind is louder and the motor is less noticeable. The motor tells you what it is doing by the vibration, like Finkeren said. I’ve never had it up to 200 and most likely never will... 😎
  8. It worked on simplified mirrors until 1st hotfix
  9. I remember seeing it now, thanks. I watched it again. Gotta love the cartoons. 🙄
  10. Do you have a reference for that? I have not seen it.
  11. More humor? That would be a No. Tom Blackburn went to bat to keep it as a shipborne aircraft because he felt it’s performance was superior to the F6F. His maintenance officer, Butch Davenport worked with Vought engineers Russ Clark and Ray DeLeva to fix the nasty low speed stall characteristics which dropped the wing, and the bouncing oleo struts. He turned out to be right and his group “The Jolly Rogers” did some good work with it. I believe it was still in service with the Navy after the F6F as retired.
  12. I flew from Florennes down to Bastogne the other day and the hill country is nicely done. I had no idea that Houffalize was nestled in a little river valley like that. Superbly done in my opinion. A good friend of the family who served in USAAF intelligence was in Bastogne during the siege and told me some stories about how he had to guard some German prisoners in the stone church in the center of town, so I was glad to see that was there. I did notice that the area around Aachen is way less populated that in reality, with some significant front line areas missing entirely, but we can work with that i’m sure. It’s not necessary to recreate the entire Siegfried Line with every bunker to make it playable, so I guess it will just be a matter of how far to take it with the available scenery objects.
  13. The manual says combat flaps can be deployed up to 250 mph ias, full flaps for landing and no flaps on takeoff. The red indicator on the left wing root by the nacelle indicates full up when not visible. 3 settings... up, combat and down. You can leave it in between, but when would you do that?
  14. Clearly your crystal ball predicts only sunny days in the future, so we will hope that doesn’t lead to drought and more dead amphibians. Sorry about the poison dart frog but he had his day...
  15. You will never get any type of accurate answer to that. Anyone that over G’ed and crashed never told anyone why they went in....
  16. Nice to see this being offered up. Thanks for all your hard work. I’m certain it will be a fun campaign and thanks to another forum member’s generosity, I already have both of those collector aircraft! hope to see it released soon. 👍
  17. It might need a tweak or 2, but it’s got lots of potential for sure. I am still trying to wrap my virtual controls and head around it ... 😜
  18. I’ve never seen a new update discussion locked before but you guys are getting pretty close I’m sure..... you might want to move on down the road for a bit and do something else until you feel a little better. 👍 Sulaco beat me to it, but yeah ... what he said.
  19. I also just noticed the voices appear to be randomized. I just reflew the same mission I did this morning and the voices were different. They were the same voice for the ground control and the flight leader, so that might need to get addressed at some point down the road. Maybe it was just Luke talking to himself in the tower! 😳
  20. There is a unique “ethertube” crackling distortion to WWII radio transmissions that is missing, but in this day and age of digital voice comms, it would probably sound a bit out of place.
  21. You can go to the audio files and play them all and see if you are there.
  22. I had almost the same thing happen. I had 3DMigoto loaded when the update installed and it basically erased all of my icon and gunsight files. I had a visualC++ error and no gunsight. I backed up my control files and did a clean reinstall. It fixed all the icon issues but then my joystick would not get recognized even though it was active in windows. I replaced with stock files and reprogrammed the joystick commands and all is perfect. In in the future, I will make sure there are no custom files running during an update.
  23. Haha, so you’re that guy... we could make a fun game out of trying to figure out who is who since we all recorded all the parts. I am fairly sure it gets mixed up according to what plane type you are in.
  24. Yeah, same here in single player. I was planning on messing with the volume adjustments this evening when I get home.
  25. I have never seen that in writing either except as speculation. I will keep sending Jason messages and maybe he will answer me one day... 😀
