    Hey guys, I'd be willing to bet that there are multiple screw-ups here. You are working through the Finnish and Leningrad campaigns, correct? I will run through these and see what needs fixing. I will not alter the missions themselves, because to do so would detract from what I am currently slaving over to complete on time with the "gang of five." So, these will be quick-and-dirty fixes. Stay tuned...

    Hey guys, I had the same problem that you did, and I think I know why this is a problem. It basically boils down to the length of the phrase you are looking for. Unfortunately, many of the aircraft that we know are recognized by their acronyms or war numbers. (P-51, P-47, P-38, C-47, B-25, B-26, etc.) The search engine does a terrible / non-existent job recognizing these codes, although it should. The way that I was able to find it was the word "Skytrain," which is what it was listed under. In his description, he did not use the word "Dakota," which is why your search came up blank. In addition to The B24 Guy's method, you can try entering the username of the uploader and searching for words, but it's not foolproof. I can certainly understand your frustration.

    Did anyone ever wrote instructions about how to use SOH Search engine in the Warbirds library? I am looking for Allen's R4D Dakota enhancement of The B24Guy overhauled stock C-47 and I thought to use the Search feature instead of scrolling through the entire US Aircraft section. I entered the following text: "C47" yields no results "R4D" yields no results

    Interesting, Mario. What VC entries did you write in your panel.cfg? Could you post them? I am asking you this, please, because I have no idea what to write under an empty section in the panel.cfg. I am sorry, but I have no notion of SCASM of Gmax editing. The fact I have no VC entries explains why I have such a hideous 2d display. This is also why I would need an approximate position for the gauges. The CFGEdit utility I use to edit 2d panels, shows me the 2d bitmap texture and where the gauge goes, while there is only a black, empty area for any VC entry. All the VCs I did, so far, had already a precise gauge location in the VC, I only replaced the existing ones, then switching back and forth to the aircraft VC in FF to check position and dimensions.

    Guys, I made a list of answers to these problems, but I am battling a cold. I will answer this in the morning. Thanks for being patient, I'm going to go to bed to try and sleep this off.

    Well, that rules out OS updates as the culprit. I was hoping to blame MS for the problem. The only thing left that makes sense is the antivirus. Too bad the measures you took didn't work Fibber. As I said whatever it is zapped my .cfg, and .dat files and most. but not all of my sound folders. It left the .exe files alone - different from your problem

    Hi Mario, I installed your model file, but I have a problem. As shown below, I keep seeing what looks like a smaller VC in 2d mode, where there should only be an external view. :frown-new: Beside, the VC texture is like an infinite mirror repetition of the entire airplane textures. I have no idea how to map proper textures to a VC and, worse of all, if I don't have a trace where the VC gauges should be, I cannot go about trial-and-error to guess their place forever. :dejection: Since I never made use of VCs and I disactivated all of them in my CFS2 to gain better framerate, I am afraid this issue will have to picked up by someone here more qualified than me over this subject. :dispirited: Thank you for you work anyway, perhaps you should start a new thread, dedicated to this...

    Gius and UncleTgt, I have been out of the loop for a while and am not really up to speed on the conflicts and glitches that have arisen between CFS2 and the newer, post-XP, versions of windows. However, I am approaching the point where I will be wanting to build a new computer for the scenery and simming. Windows 7 is as far as I am willing to take it, I think. So, I guess soon I will be looking to pick your guys brains to sort things out if necessary. Chris

    Hi UT, I am still running WindowsXP Pro on my scenery-making computer. It's not that I have any particular aversion to Windows 7 but just haven't seen any good reason to take a leap into the great unknown. My other computer, the one I am typing on at the moment, is running Windows 8.1 Pro. I don't even want to think about rebuilding my scenery-making infrastructure on Windows 8. However, it might be worth the effort to see what happens. I sort of by-passed Windows 7 although I am familiar with it since my daughter runs it on her computer. WRT updating how it went using SBuilder and AutoCoast on the Solomon's rebuild, it actually was going quite well. I was having good success getting the results I wanted although at the moment, specific details of glitches and fixes don't come to...

    Hi Gius, Yes I am. The screenshots in this thread are of airfields where I relied almost exclusively on G2K to do all of the ground texturing and roads and such. If I recall correctly the only screenshot where I used the method in my tutorial is the Morotai. Morotai has a very complex hardstand, taxiway-runway layout- best done using the method described in my tutorial. But everything else in the Morotai scenery is done with G2k. I still use FSSC for all of the basic airfield stuff- runways, start points, flat areas, NDBs, fuel areas, etc.. MR PS: Here are three screenshots of the G2K layout window for all of the ground texturing polys for Babo (the background project map is turned off to make it easier to see). The the zoomed-out shot shows all of the shorelines and airfield...

    A long flight indeed. Speaking of long flights involving Rabaul, have you ever read the the biography of Saburo Sakai? In one mission, while he was stationed at Rabaul, he flew a zeke from Rabaul to Henderson. He and his ship were both badly shot up and he nursed it all the way back to Rabaul. It is an impressive story of shear will power and courage. He was a heck of a guy. Speaking again of long missions to Rabaul. I got into making scenery when reading the book "American Aces Speak" by Eric Hammel (?). In that book one of the missions he described in detail was a mission of P-38s escorting a B-24 strike against Japanese installations all around Blanche Bay and Simpson Harbor- flying out of Dobodura (Popondetta). The mission is told through the eyes of the guy in charge of the...

    Archive1, No, you're on the right track if you're getting the error numbers you describe. They trace back to missing elements in the GSL file, I think, but I am still working out what the specific errors are.

    My cfs2.exe's are sill there, but all my .cfg and .dat files have disappeared. I thought it might be the Norton and now I am convinced it is. I just put a new install in on Sunday and it still works though. Whatever happened was just before that I guess. :banghead:

    How are things down there in Beaufort land? Been awhile since I have been there to see "Jerry" at Discovery Diving.
    I have installed your Forts and just have to comment that they are FANTASTIC! Now, not to sound like a dolt, which is why this isn't a Public message, but where do you put the "US PILOT" that is part of the Forts D/L? I have put it in the "models" section and met with negative results. I keep getting "Pilot not found" Do you want it in the "aircraft section" just like TL's crewmen?
    Inquiring minds want to know.

    No GR. I threw only in HS.

    My choice for Discus came from Symphiosidon Discus, a tropical fish, and one of my "pets" that my kids and wife like a lot. Unfortunately I donīt have enough space for a german shepperd, my favorite dog.

    I think itīs important for you to know that until last week, before asking and getting from Talon the link to Caleb Flerkīs dp tutorial, a dp file for me was like reading a chinesse document.

    But fortunately there is always something new to learn every day.

    Ghostrider I tried your operation Hailstone mission ( Truk strike 1E ) and my computer just handled it as far as the frame rate goes. I am using a e6400 dual core with a evga 8800gt video card. I think that was the most intense mission I have flown with cfs2 so far. A fantastic looking mission. olaf
