    Yes, rechecked all of this in my Win 7 machine, seems to look good when down low( 1500ft. to 2000ft.) as Master GOSD said. But again one wouldn't be at 20k dropping these I don't think. Would be hard to hit a drop zone .. Oh how much Mead can I pack into one of these?? :applause: :applause: :applause: Thanks to ALL who built this beautiful set of Birds..

    Thanks for the offer gosd :wavey:. However I think I've got the earlier round tucked away somewhere. The main thing is to let the people who released the package know. They can decide what they wish to do. My suggestion was simply for them to advise people not to overwrite the existing gb 303 round in the MAW/Weapons folder.

    Trial and error brings me to the following conclusion: If you fly around 1750-1800 ft you will get the best effects for these.

    Daiwilletti, I had a look at this and I can report that the original AvHistory_gb_round_303cal weapon did not have a tracer effect. I can send you the original weapon if you PM me or you could add the "tracer_red_no_smoke7" effects to your effects.xml

    Loving these birds! One issue - the AV History version of the AvHistory_gb_round_303cal weapon uses a red tracer effect that is not in my MAW effects.xml - hence no tracers seen -"tracer_red_no_smoke7". The effect is found in the ETO effects.xml. So perhaps installers can be told not to overwrite their existing gb 303 round in MAW? I'm not sure what tracer effect the MAW 303 round has as I've overwritten it! However an earlier version of the AvHistory file seems to rely on default tracer effects as none is specified. Thanks again for these great aircraft!

    Yes one of the issues, I discovered when I built this set. MAW Scenery wasn't finished and it caused some issues.. I loaded this improvement also into my Win 7 machine (8 gig of ram) It has improved the FPS +10 for this machine. Thanks very much

    Will this help for HH Poliesti Missions"And there are Masters here looking into the problems with MAW and the scenery issues. Everyone who has changed there sliders to a lower setting have been able to fly the missions without crashing.. Recommemd that the scenery slider be set at 3 and the terriains at 4 MAX.. MAW will not allow anyone to fly in Romainia without setting the sliders at a Lower level..The game will crash to desktop if not done this way.. One of these bugs in the MAW expanision that is now being adressed.."

    Capt. Winters, This set of aircrafts is very good, many thanks to the teem that made it possible.:encouragement: I do not want people to think I am cretisizing this great work. In MAW I finally got a glimpse of a chute just before the crates dissapered in the ground. I feel the life span of the effect is too short lived. I am shure this can be corrected as for paratroopers. I am also wondering why doe the loadout dissapear when hitting the ground?

    Yes I did install the provided effects.xml and also the two provided textures, had a look at the weapons file the .m3d seems to call for a different .dds. Will reaload, just in case, and try it again.

    Thanks Gecko, thats useful info. I set the FPS to 60 in the game.xml, so as to synchronise with the refresh rate and avoid visual aberrations. Framerate has been rock steady with this setting, since getting a good video card (GTX 760, lots of Gb). I have just started to hoist my long-standing scenery budget levels, to try this mod out.

    Bonjour Daniel,
    D'abord il faut que je te présente des excuses car en regardant mes messages je viens de m'apercevoir que le 25 janvier tu me demandais l'original du Curtiss.
    Pourtant je fais attention mais celui-là est passé à coté. J'espère que tu ne m'en veux pas trop.
    Bon dimanche.
    PS : Bien sûr je suis à ta disposition pour t'envoyer un fichier (suivant mes possibilités).

    Salut Daniel, j'espère que tout se passe bien pour toi.
    Je suis en train de travailler sur la création d'aérodromes et c'est pas une mince affaire (photo aérienne Google Map ou FSX arrangé) et comme GMAX en anglais technique me rebute je tâtonne.
    Bien à par ça que penses-tu de la coupe du monde de rugby ?
    Tout à l'heure il y a Nouvelle-Zélande - France. ça va faire mal !
    A bientôt,
