    Sarg Willy, I tried this as well...and although I think this was part of the issue, (I corrected the numbers) no change in fuel usage. Onto the gauge.

    Bearcat, It does, and I eliminated the extraneous info and made the changes you suggested to the airfile. But even with that eliminated and modified, it still does not recognize the extra fuel. Is the fuel tank selector the last link, then? What gauge would you recommend?

    Greycap.raf, Thank you for explaining this...I always struggled with how to interpret boost when trying to correct the performance of aircraft which use "boost" info or "ata." I happened across this on a Google search and just wanted to say thanks. :ernaehrung004: Cheers,

    Good evening, I have been working with the Westland Whirlwind for a couple of "what if" missions in 1941. One of the things I've done, besides correcting the engine data and weight, was to correct the fuel load to correct the wing tank load, (300 liters per tank) and then added the thirty gallon fuel tank that would have been included with a redesign, and then added drop tanks (44 gallons each) to the payloads. I've made sure that the .air file includes the drop tanks and relevant info, and that they are sequential. But apparently, the corresponding information must also be included in the .cfg file, because the aircraft.cfg includes the fuel tank data. LeftMain=0.000, -3.000, -0.667, 79.252, 0.000 RightMain=0.000, 3.000, -0.667, 79.252, 0.000 fuel_type=1.000000

    Dumonceau, You're not going to believe this but sometimes, that "stuttering" can be the result of a bad gauge in a panel. The Fairey Fulmar, DeHavilland Mosquito, and Spitfire V series by Brunosk are notorious for this, but they all have been corrected.

    Hi again, My last post before I go make some soup, tea, and crawl under the covers for a while. This is a post that will probably draw some disagreement, but it's just two sides of the same coin. Because of the amount of outstanding product out there for CFS2, I would highly encourage you to do multiple European installs, as well as multiple Mediterranean installs. The Eastern Front, if you so choose, you can get by with one. I divide mine by years...Early ETO and Early Med are 1939-1942, Late ETO and Late Med are 1943-1945. There are "multi-install" utilities out there that allow you to run CFS2 from one installation based on "batch" files, but in my experience, I never got the thing working right. I set up mine separately, and create theatre-specific environments for each of...

    Dumonceau, Just a couple words of advice... 1) Go slowly building up your installs. Install an aircraft, object package, or ship. Test it, make sure it works, then add another. This will save you a lot of problems later on. 2) Also, for each install you have, make sure to create a backup of your quick combat (.qcb) file found in the QUICKCOM folder. Simply copy the file to your desktop, rename the extension ".bak" and place it back in your QUICKCOM folder alongside the original file. This will save you some headaches later on if you have to try and fix the problem I described below tip #3. 3) There is for most people a limit of how many aircraft, objects, and ships that you can have in a single install.

    Dumonceau, Here are a few websites for you... Usio's ships: http://www.geocities.jp/usio_no_ibuki/ (Warning; these can be frame rate heavy) Sully's ships: http://simviation.com//lair/cfs2sully.htm Mas' site: http://www.geocities.jp/mtyjr101/index.htm (Lots of cool stuff here. Not well known, but it has the Graf Zeppelin aircraft carrier, a great torpedo boat, and a Russian battleship, among other items) These files offer a great balance of detail and are also frame-rate friendly.

    Dumonceau, Thanks for the compliments! :encouragement: As promised, I just sent a PM to Ickie and DangerousDave26 to see if we can get the bandwith cap restriction lifted for you for at least a few days. Rhumbaflappy's LOD files alone, when put together total about 3.5GB. (No, that is not a typo) My responses today might be a bit spread out...I am battling my first cold of the school year, and don't feel too good. Plus, I tested a new airfield for achim27619. There was a misidentified airfield which needed correction. In his JHS_Germany pack, "Memmingen" was actually Innsbruck, Austria. He sent me the new version of Innsbruck this morning, and is making Memmingen at or near its historical location. I've also been getting airfields from him in the North of England (Catterick,...

    Dumonceau, 1) I will work with the other Admins to see if we can get your daily bandwith bumped up and/or set on unlimited for the time being, because you will be downloading A LOT of stuff. 2) As far as textures go, the ETO is essentially set up with European textures by Sander de Cocq. I have created an ETO installation guide (recently revised) which outlines how to set up an ETO installation and which files to use. All of Achim's airfields, as well my GSL ports and nearly all missions and campaigns based on Europe run off of this base scenery. 3) Here is a screenshot of RAF Driffield, a base not released by Achim just yet, but which will be available pretty soon. You can see the ETO scenery, at least for farming areas, in the background. I will provide links for the above in...

  1. Airfiles are not my deptartment I guess. Sorry. If you cant find one from another FW, I usually ask Bearcat241 for assistance. He's an expert.

    I actually converted the plane, since i started doing that... but can you make an airfile based after the fw190D?

    Dear Mr.Morton ,
    I admire greatly all the excellent panels and aircraft conversions you provide for our hobby . You constantly exceed all expectations with the quality of your work !!! However on your Skydive site neither downloads for the Mosquito BIV or Mosquito BVI appear to work !!! Could this just be my computer or could a link be broken ? One last question,if I may . You make many panels but I always wondered why you never made panels for some of the more iconic American Aircraft like the B-17 or the B-25 and the B-26 . Thanks again for all your good work . Regards and Best Wishes 1150(Michael Lythgoe)
  4. Morton,

    I was visiting your skydrive and wanted to ask if any of your CFS2 aircraft would also work in FS2004.

    I love flying them in CFS2, but wanted to try them in FS2004 also.

    Thanks,

    T.
