    Dumonceau, I cleared your downloading with Ickie, the head of our little clan. Given the amount of stuff you'll need, it's only fair. You can thank me by helping out with the donation drive at the beginning of 2015. :jump: And we're on standby for the technical nuts-and-bolts questions.

    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, I hope you found the work of "Ajax" for your GUI replacements. Take53084 also did some great MB screens, splash screens, and start screens that you can use along with Ajax's work, if you so choose.

    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: (Warning; these can be frame rate heavy) Sully's ships: Mas' site: (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.

    Looks like the freeware version found on based on his pics. Especially since there is no VC.

    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,...

    Great information and your last statement is basically what I have been using since the first instance of losing the glideslope. Trim and throttle makes for a successful ILS approach. Thanks to you and Rob for the insight.

    Don't get me started on the EU, BG ! I HATE bureaucracies and that one is the biggest in the universe - what a vast waste of money...... Anyway, no politics etc etc - Keith beat you to the punch with the Tay Viscount - must have been nice to fly in - will never forget my first Viscount flight - so smooth and quiet - those lovely big windows that you could actually see out of - those were the days ! :icon29: to Keith and eagerly awaiting his next mystery.

    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...

    You might also put it in context of part of the discussion in the last link of my post in the 310B thread: "Then I inherited the cleanup of the analysis of the wind tunnel tests. One of the other selections for the configuration was a split flap, to be sure of drag when you needed it on this very clean configuration, such as during power-on approaches. This choice was a departure from flaps selected for other Cessna models of the era. The tunnel test indicated not only that the split flap gave good incremental lift, but produced so much drag it was almost dangerous. Thus we limited the deflection of the flap from the 75 degrees tested in the tunnel to 60 degrees on the prototype and, based on flight confirmation, limited it further to 45 degrees on the initial production ...

    For a long time, I had been fascinated by the similar, but much smaller, engineer's position in the Catalina. In fact, it was only when actually crawling round the Duxford Cat that I realised how tiny that space actually is ! The Leo is a much chunkier machine, and seems to me the only flying boat which would offer such a space. The observation hatch seemed the ultimate clincher. There is no clue given in my LeO book, so I suppose we'll have to leave this as speculation. Obviously I didn't read the Dutch forum, so I am pleased someone else arrived at the same conclusion ! Please let me know, Ferry, if someone finally clinches this.

    Hi C9G,

    Just wanted to say hi, and wish you a wonderful upcoming week. Next Friday, my sister Melissa (who lives in Indianapolis) is driving down here to my place. We will leave Saturday morning for Sanibel Island, Fl, to stay at a condo she has...until 7 Sept. Really looking forward to the trip. Besides us, we're taking her dog (Golden Doodle) Bella, and my Rottweiler, "Chief"....... Hugs. Peter
