  1. I've had to disable my 3rd party firewall in order to connect.
  2. I just HAD to Google... "A geezer is a descriptive word in the UK which is used to define a mans characteristics. A geezer will be found usually out side a pub with a pint in his hand on match day. They commonly like football, scrapping, beer, tea, tits, and Barry white." Sounds like my kind of crew... (except for the Barry White thing). Too bad I'm already taken. Best of luck with your squad!
  3. Thanks Kathon! I never clicked on them to see what's up.
  4. I'm not sure if this is possible to do server side. We've been struggling with this in trying to set-up a dead is dead campaign for BOS. I believe it's part of the game code that if the server chooses a death penalty there is no way to allow a limited re-entrance (gunner only). I sure hope the Devs can code something to this effect. It would eliminate the "honor system" that we use in Flanders in Flames (and I really feel that being able to still participate in the tournament as a gunner after kill / capture is part of why we still have 50 or more participants in what is essentially a sim on the downside). Hi Red! Salute!
  5. I'm curious... why are the He-111s locked? Am I missing something? I have two as bomber in my line-up and one cargo... but I can't use them. Is this part of the front line progression?
  6. I use the smaller one to line up bomb drop. Works well but I don't know if that is what it's really for. (I like the pizza idea ๐Ÿ˜„).
  7. I've only tried the AA Rockets and it works but it's not a 109... it's a Dora (my preference anyway). For the life of me, I can't seem to get the range right. Even with icons on and the range showing they seem to detonate beyond the set range... probably just me though. What you said about 15% is probably true and seems to be my success rate to this point. I will NOT be using these on multiplayer. ๐Ÿ˜œ When loading the P47 mission it's actually a IL2. Easy enough to change in the MB but you might want to take a look. Oh... and the Skip bombing works fine. As always, thanks Requiem!
  8. Thank you! That makes sense.
  9. Seriously weird. So the right bank has more displacement... anyone know why? I would think it would set up some (perhaps) serious vibration and cause uneven wear. Who cares about crew comfort? and longevity? Maybe they thought it would be a flaming pyre before maintenance would be an issue? ๐Ÿ˜ฒ
  10. All things in life that are worthwhile require some time and effort. Give it some and you will be rewarded but it does take some effort (and WT is somewhat effortless). ๐Ÿšฝ
  11. Point taken and I agree. "does not make it a waste of time for the rest of us to discriminate between the colours" "so I applaud the OP's efforts" It wasn't my intent to say it's a waste of time and in no way belittle the Dude's efforts. I applaud his persistence and attention to detail and his skins are par excellence. I'm just trying to point out the limitations of "accurate" skinning. I do stand by my statement that everyone perceives colors (and tastes... and smells) individually... we are all, to some extent, unique. That being said, there are universal standards. Wine sommeliers have to agree on perceptions of taste and smell, after all, in order to evaluate and grade wines (something that I am sadly lacking... for the life of me I can't discern between a two buck chuck and a $60 bottle).
  12. I assume... (ass you me? ) that you're aware of this thread r.e. Dr.1 425/17 (and it's pretty apparent in the OP) but just in case (and for those that aren't aware): http://www.theaerodrome.com/forum/showthread.php?t=71271 And... unless everyone has calibrated their monitors, the colors aren't going to be rendered accurately. Even with calibrated monitors, EVERYONE perceives colors differently... I've spent hours getting what I think is a perfect color match painting planes and cars only to have the customer not be satisfied... just the nature of our optical sensors. I wouldn't get too wrapped up in the "historical accuracy" for what we're doing... As to the OP, I vote for the "Official 425/17" skin.
  13. Personally, I'm glad to see that CB has eclipsed WOL in popularity. I prefer the non GPS and no weapon mod restrictions and custom skins. (love being able to do JABO 190s again). And, yes, I also fly Russian / Allied also. That being said, there is a need for a beginner server (like the ROF New Wings model of full switch and a novice server). Hopefully, someone will launch a novice server. But, for the time being...
