Re: Prangsters mission repository

Please remind me how these are added to the dserver once you've played and downloaded them direct from the server. I've tried to find the answer but some stuff is fragmented.

I'm guessing it's something to do with a missing .msnbin file?

Re: Basic Training unit

That's a nice idea. If it goes forward a basic guide should be prepared to deal with all of the initial questions. How do I join a server etc etc.

I reckon so - anything to keep him quiet.

A combination of the two.

Re: No6_OTU needs more fresh and new blood...

Hear hear BB. I have one chap lined up. If anyone else wants to be an instructor please say. @ Tiger - I omitted thanks for all the hard work you've done. Over the last 3 years especially the frustrations have grown as there have not been many new recruits and many who were not appropriate. I give t...

Re: OTU Open for BoS

Hard to say. A long time ago the developers said they wanted to make damage more real hence the apparent increased damage. I'm not convinced that getting hits is easier, but maybe the visual cue is greater when you do hit.

I have no idea how right it is.

Re: OTU Open for BoS

After figuring out that my left brake was reversed I managed to take off in the FW190 then crash landed immediately. After a hairy second take off I discovered I had trim fully up (hence the first crash) but at about 350km/h everything is a lot smoother. The only thing is that at the moment I'm not ...

Re: OTU Open for BoS

Too early as the final game isn't out, we don't know enough about it and we don't have the missions prepped.

That and we aren't using it yet. I reckon OTU could start around January when we have a good idea about it.
