The game supplied tank missions are gone!

 

Now I'm sad again.  :(

 

Hopefully they will be back?

Don’t be sad.... here in Toronto, after about 3-4 weeks of darkness... it’s blue skies :)

so I’m a few weeks in sim land, we should have a whole new world to play in :) 

 

I am loving this change in weather. Last weekend...ice storm, this weekend blue skies and 11c! Love it :D

No they are not mate... if you have any Jade monkey missions installed, just remove that folder and the Tank missions will work again... I've done this and all the tank missions work fine.

It's the Monkey's fault? I knew it. :P

 

I'll try that, thanks.

If you only leave the .msnbin files for my missions and delete the rest it should do the trick. I'm not really sure why :(

The DD's are largely informational. Think of them as a slighly interactive newspaper. The problem is you are reading the newspaper in the publisher's living room and some of us are crapping on the rug. The rest of the forum is the family room where all of the cousins get to argue over who sits at the adult table for dinner.

 

The Dev's read every thread. Maybe not in their entirety but I guarantee you they all get read. Their focus is keeping heads down and working. To expect them to engage in extended back and forths is not realistic in this or any other thread. In the past it has borne a little fruit but mostly angst for both parties. They don't have a PR guy and certainly aren't going to pay one as opposed to paying another engineer or artist. It literally takes people away from their actual jobs to deal with us and write things, often in a second language which must be tough.

 

Jason loses his $#!7 once in a while and it can be cringeworthy. In the case of this thread he was clearly trolled and took the bait which is unfortunate. As a long time general manager (in a past life) in customer service I know you have to stay above this even when you really want to stab a bitch. On the other hand the stuff that was being said, on the release date of some pretty impressive stuff, was pretty ungrateful. He's human, his guys just devoted most of a year to this particular project, and the loudest voices sometimes pierce through all of the happy customers of which we are the majority.

 

While I did lightly criticize my friend Jason, my other buddy Gambit reminded me I can occasionally lose my $#!7 on these boards as well. It's always good when your friends can help you grow and self-evaluate. :)

I only had a few missions in there, so I cleared them out. I'll give that a try.

 

And thank you for building the missions.  :cool:

Jade, Wow, I can't believe I did not try this before, but I downloaded your missions again and just moved the .msnbin file for the 109 Strafing mission and it works like a charm.  You did good, I just missed it!  Sorry I am slow on the uptake and worked with old downloads all this while.  Thanks for all you do.

Absolutely. Easy to lose your mind on these boards. 

 

Not really an excuse for constant shitposting

 

I don't really need to quote your recent rants and wild accusations and calls for outing "cheaters" without evidence

 

perhaps in future you should step away from the game for 1 day when an update happens, seeing as you have to deal with 'this kind of disgraceful appalling rubbish nearly every update'

 

you seem to be trying too hard to come off as an angsty entitled teen, time to wind your neck in and rather give an example to the many newcomers of how to correctly behave on a forum

 

Cheers, Dakpilot

I was finally able to get the new update and play the game for a while. Very good job by the devs improving the performance. I played a couple of career missions.  The first was very smooth. No stuttering during game play.  The pause turning the hud on and off is still there though. A couple more missions particularly an escort mission had some stuttering when things got busy but it was much much better than before. I didn't see any slow motion either. Fps were pegged at 60 as always with vsync on. I think if I reduce ground action to scattered or rare I can get it even better. Although my CPU is running at 4.5 ghz it is still an old sandybridge. I think it has something to do with stuttering when a lot is happening. I played several PWCG missions and they were all smooth. I reduced air and ground a bit which I'm sure help keep things smooth while still offering plenty

of action. The speed of some of the screen loading is vastly better. 

 

Is is it my imagination or has the view from inside the cockpit been changed to show more of the front of my 109? I'd swear the view over the nose is different.

 

Great job improving performance and the rest of the changes devs!!! Thank you for your hard work.

Yes losing temper is ok and very common to all of us. If a customer loses his temper, then the company usually loses money. If the company loses its temper, it usually loses money. So it is a bad situation for the company. PR or customer service should not be a full-time employee. He or She could be the emergency stuff, like firefighter who take the situation on control when things get heated. The middleman between devs and customers. Maybe that person could be someone from this forum. Maybe some tester or someone who know this game allready inside out. Or maybe im tolking thru my asshat...

There is no reason for anyone to loose his temper, gob it off, or generally act like an immature child... it needs to stop.

Acting like a mature adult, showing restraint, good manners and behaving responsibly, setting a good example to other forum members etc, are all things that 'every' member on these forums needs to display... it's not rocket science.

 

Maybe then, any forum we visit anywhere on the internet will be a pleasant and meaningful experience for all concerned.

For those who have installed succesful the update. I can share the following impressions.

With the patch the german 20 mm seems to be nerfed. The version 3 gave more puch to the german 20 mm being very comparable to the Russian. Now with the patch it is back what it was before.

 

 

Went ahead and redid my test comparing the ShVAK and the MG151 HE and AP rounds. The results obtained before and after the update don't show any noteworthy differences between 3.001 and 3.002.

The placebo effect is strong here. Thanks for doing the testing because that's what usually reveals changes... or lack thereof. 1CGS is pretty good about there being no surprises when it comes to patches. When they change stuff its nearly always (always?) documented. Especially when its important.

Can someone explain me why the planes are not downed by me anymore? - No friendly planes around only me - but everytime the message appear to confirm my kills it says everytime a other friendly plane shot down this enemy plane down?  I searched the whole map to find this plane what count my kills as his,  I couldn't find this plane???  :huh:

You did your tests and I did mine. I had this impression and some other high profile multiplayer fliers had that very same "impression" too. So we had to adapt the tactics accordingly. Actually I had the pair opinion before posting here.

What where you testing? For reference my tests are described here. They only cover wing damage, but they allow me to isolate pretty much every variable, and test precisely the number of rounds needed to achieve a de-wing. I was also under the same "impression" as you, hence going ahead and repeating the tests. Turns out I got the same results. My "impressions" were just wrong.

Multiplayer expericence is a Zero sum game. That is why all the drama exists. So please do not expect here to discuss what the available strategies are. Come to TS.

As we are very focused to deliver the best JG27 customer experience:a perfect blend of desperation, panic and rage quit. LOL.

I have this as well. When I shoot down a plane a message displays that friendly has shot down this plane.

When the mission is finished I notice that kill or kills are credited to me however. 

But the message at the time of the event does not mention mine or my pilots name anymore.

MP is bugged on this update. No round timer visible on stat page and player names replaced my plane names in the info chat.

 

Also double death for bailing out over enemy territory if you survive.

Wow. It pains me to learn that confirmation bias apparently affects the best of us. I would have thought that the highest of profile multiplayer fliers were immune to such human realities. Suddenly I know what Don McLean was trying to say.

Not only a massive confirmation bias but also an argument from authority given the "high profile multiplayer fliers" whose feelings are certainly more correct than people who have done actual testing.
