    There are 3 a/c in the ETO install, contrail_ab, _af and _b17. They all have these lines pasted into the effects section of their xdp file: <Effect Type="Track" EffectName="fx_high_contrail" Location="emitter_eng0_exh_r" /> <Effect Type="Track" EffectName="fx_high_contrail" Location="emitter_eng1_exh_r" /> In the effects .xml file this is the entry: <high_contrail_1 ClassName="TrackEffect" FlatTrack="0" Lifetime="0" InitialDelay="0" ParticleLifetime="35" FadeInTime=".25" FadeOutTime="12" PosX="0" PosY="0" PosZ="0" CountSegments="2000" SegmentLength="12" Width="1.4" WidthGrow="1.5" InitialAlpha="0.3" InitialColor="255 255 255" Alpha=".40" Color="255 255 255" FinalAlpha="0" FinalColor="255 255 255" BlendMode="QuadSprite" Texture="dr_smokeball.dds" ZBias=".03"/> ...

    I had to refresh my memory with the effects pack Chris, this was designed for modellers - the effects emitters need to be added into the gmax model. They won't work otherwise I'm afraid As for the contrails, they should work on any a/c with suitably modified xdp. Check that you have pasted the effects lines into your effects.xml file BEFORE it says </Effects> at the end. Contrails should already be in the ETO effects.

    Master Andre, these are for CFS3 not the ETO expansion. Correct.. Thanks for the upload, i will adjust all of this to work in ETO 1.40. The CFS3 sim is quite different..ETO has Free_France ( not France..)

    RAF 107 Squadron in action.. Truly grateful for the shade/shine effects developed by the Masters for this. <Title>ETO Dieppe 107 Sq.Boston A20 Ground attack HH 611 <Overview>Your Squadron is to attack the German ground units and prevent them from opposing an invasion by over 5,000 Allied troops, mostly Canadians, who raid Dieppe, France. RAF 107 Squadron, flying Blenheims, then Bostons and, finally Mosquitos, subsequently took part in scores of raids, including raid on Dieppe on 19th August 1942 (its task on this occasion was to bomb hostile shore batteries and thus reduce enemy opposition to the landing force)

    I have fallen into the Battle of France (air war) As many know I am being allowed to build for the ETO team, and have planned 100 Historical missions. to add to this (working for months so far on this) I am researching the air war in France 1939-40 And are amazed at what I have found. as brief as it was, it was intense . The french airman fought like lions in heat!! Out gunned, out Planed and out planned they still gave it their all in many cases..

    Love the shaders effects now developed for for this. the last picture under the Do217 really shows this off well. Thanks to the Masters for this. Operating from Redhill, as a part of the Northolt Wing, 12 Spitfires VB - at the time this version was an inferior aircraft to those which the unit encountered in combat. took off for the first patrol. Lead by S/Ldr Zumbach, Poles arrived over Dieppe at 10:11, and were met by intense flak. Down at the cost, mostly Canadian troops were already in a fierce battle. At the height of 8000 feet the unit was jumped by a number of German FW190s. In the ensuing scuffle some Poles engaged enemy fighters while others went after dive bombing Ju88s and Do 217s. After some 30 minute combat in good visibility and at 5000 feet, the squadron was withdrawn...
