    Question I have a rather bizzare problem with the Maryland...

    Good morning,

    I need a little .dp tweaking here. When the Martin Marylands fly as AI in the Battle of France, instead of releasing bombs, they release the "Maryland crew," which is the pilot and navigator, and I don't know quite how to fix it. Here is the .dp section...

    Change this "0" value to "-1" on each [PAYLOAD.X].

    You may do the same for the drop tank. Change the "1" to "-1", otherwise you will not be able to use it.

    Sarg,

    I have to admit, that did go through my mind. I was watching the flight in front of me release, and something didn't look right. I hit the key to follow the bomb view to the target and suddenly realized..."Wait a minute, those aren't bombs, they're dropping crews!" Aw, s*it, how do I fix this?"

    Just goes to show you why mission testing, not just writing, has significance.

    Roxanne-21,

    I flew the mission again, and am happy to report that the Marylands released their bombs and not their crews. Thanks again for the tip!

    And Sarg Willy - Slim Pickens stayed aboard so he could also star in Blazing Saddles.
