    Ivan replied to a thread Warhawk in CFS1 General Discussion
    After a couple days of looking over the station diagram and rescaling and combining another tech drawing of the P-40 Cowl, I now have a pretty good representation of the fuselage of the P-40E series. It is still missing the fin and rudder, but I had already scaled those dimensions from several photographs. Today, I finished entering those dimensions into AF99 to compare with the AF99 model I have of the P-40E. First, I took the resulting part which I believe is as correctly dimensioned as I can get and compared it to the original Warhawk model. I then took that same part and compared it to the Warhawk model I have been reworking. Attached are screenshots of the results. I found that the offsets from the aircraft datum point to my AF99 model were not optimal. The longitudinal...

    Saw her again today, but passing north (1 or 2 miles) of me on a course parallel to the previous sighting, definitely no higher than 3,000'. She must go back and forth between St-Hubert, on the South-Shore of Montréal, and Dorval. And if those two stripes are exhaust grime, she needs a high-pressure hosing A.S.A.P.!!! Thanks for the infos guys:applause:

    Now, if someone could tell me which bird came to visit Montréal, I would appreciate it. One, called Sentimental Journey, is suppose to go to Hamilton this summer, but Hamilton is not exactly in the neighborhood, so to speak ... HERE ... and I don't see the two black stripes.:greenbounce:

    It is not such an annoyance as to go through all that procedure. Remember that my old main HD is "piggy-backing" as a slave disc and, as a W98SE HD, was divided into 12 partitions, now going from "E" to "P", the slave HD was also divided into 4 partitions. When I get the message about having not enough resources, another clic or two (or three) set the problem. I can live with that...:angel:

    Break up your 240 GB into multiple smaller partitions. I had to do this with my W98 system way back. It also might help to have CD and DVD sized partitions so you can either dump an entire CD or DVD in to get faster load times or to assemble data to archive to media. Some of our old machines were dual boot with either SCO Unix, Solaris X86 or Linux. - Ivan.

    Any suggestions for a "filler"? I have actually ±240 Gb doing nothing. Don't see myself copying "I will fill this hard drive." like Bart Simpson a gazillion time...:kilroy:

    Today, around noon, I was sanding the front stairs before applying stain when, like you PRB, I heard a very low growling of a multiple engines machine. It suddenly appeared just over my head; a metal-finish B-17 with large black stripes under both wings, no national roundels, vintage or otherwise. I only had a few seconds to observe it, flying well under 5,000' (2-3,000' maybe), in a circuit normally reserved for small GA traffic going to Dorval YUL 28, but it was no Cessna indeed! What a sight, and what a sound!:encouragement:

    My call has generally been to repair machines when something fails if I believe they are otherwise "reliable". My development machine is still a Pentium 233 MMX for most of my aircraft projects although I use quite a few other machines to do the analysis, drawings and much of the flight testing. This Computer dates back to around 1997 and has been quite reliable except for a power supply fan failure a decade or so ago. I also chose to replace the original processor which was a Cyrix with a real live Pentium about that long ago. The video card is a Voodoo 3 3000 which I installed around 1999 or 2000 and it still works well enough. The power supply shows hints of wanting to fail again (doesn't always turn on the first time), and the fan is a touch noisy, but it pretty much does what I...

    Ivan replied to a thread Warhawk in CFS1 General Discussion
    Hello All, I finally managed to find a Fuselage Station diagram for the short tail Allison P-40 about a week ago. It isn't a great drawing for quality, but is quite useable for at least laying out many things longitudinally. I found where the Longitudinal and Vertical Datum lines were and am now able to adjust photographs accordingly. The Longitudinal Datum (Station 1) happens to be at the airframe's Firewall. The Vertical Datum or Fuselage Reference Line happens to be at the seam where the top half of the Fuselage joins the Bottom half. From these drawings, the BIGGEST problem with the drawings by William Wylam is that he appeared to be confusing the Engine Thrust Line with the Fuselage Reference Line. This alone would have accounted for a 3.75 inch shift from the front end...

    Hi Milton, Here is a VERY similar model I built a while back. (Still stuck in my paint shop.) While it isn't sposta be a Fiat G55, with a proper paint job, I don't think most folks would be able to tell the difference without some measurements of exact dimensions. It is amazing how similar the Italian fighters looked to each other. - Ivan.

    Thanks for "cleaning-up" my typo. (Yes, it was a typo... of sort:biggrin-new:). I was finally able to make short AVIs, but my game crashes too soon. It is definitely a graphic issue; I'm filming a TG2 practice while flying close to the ground from Interlaken in the Dam Buster Lancaster and, when I switch from padlock to cockpit view, that's when the game crashes when I'm using Bandicam. Otherwise, it's a nifty little program, very intuitive and easy to use. Here is an excerpt from the "performance" evaluation (translation in RED); Carte graphique

    I don't know if the "patch" was used, but he obviously had some control over his (or her?) Mustang. I usually don't fight from the cockpit 3D perspective, but it was doing the trick here. His (or, again, her) aim with the zoom-in was, shall we say, less precise... I have downloaded and installed the non-registered version of Bandicam. My firsts attempts all ended with the game crashing. I had the same problem with a couple of other screen-capturing video program as well. I guess I will keep this one on the HD until I can give it a fair shot with a decent graphic card. I've been tinkering lately with the idea of making CFS1 videos/tutorials, hence my interest in a good and unobtrusive program of that sort. P.S.- Is there a way to correct that silly spelling mistake in the title. I...

    Sorry for you, smilo, but the best team won (although it came close to be otherwise...). If the "faking mentality" could be rooted out, it would be a great sport to watch. Television doesn't lie about people tripping on thin air and, when really hit, grimacing on the ground while holding the wrong limb or body parts. When Neymar was brought out of the field on a stretcher, I was convinced that he would be back in a minute (and I'm sure many did!). The faking is not only detrimental to the sport as it is basically cheating, but it is detrimental to the players who are unceremoniously tossed of the field even when, like Neymar incident, they would need immediate treatment and immobilization before being moved. If his vertebrae had been fractured instead of being cracked, he would be...

    It is a straight out of the game mission on an unaltered CFS1 install. It is a campaign mission of the BoB (British side) where you're supposed to defend Ventnor radar station against incoming flight of Ju-87 escorted by 109. My screen went black as I warped to battle with a couple of friendlies in front of me. It only happened once with that "plain vanilla" installation, but numerous time while flying FS95 and hitting the "S" key and a few times with my usual MP CFS1 installation under various circumstances. Last time I tried the mission was today; bagged four Junkers and four Me at 100% reality (yes, I'm bragging...:a1310:). I think that it is specific to my rig, fortunately. P.S.- I forgot; squeak you, Dave:encouragement:...
