Although I will probably not play around with this for some time (if ever due to time constraints) I just wanted to say that I really appreceate the work you put into it.

Thanks

Whiskey (Irish?) do you have JAVA instlaled on your machine. Does not sound so. If JAVA is installed clicking on a .jar archive will start the application included in the.jar archive. Please have a look in your System Control Panel if there is an entry for JAVA. If it is not installed you should do that as advised in the release notes text on the download page.

Hope this will enlighten you biggrin

That was it thanks Gremlin. I had assumed Java was installed as part of the Win7 installation, I now realise it was not. Problem solved now, thanks.

I am glad, that I could help. You know, Microsoft (Windwos) and Sun (JAVA) are far from being friends boom

Here are the new features/fixes in V1.01

New Features:
Added pilot pictures
Removed "junk flights: flights that do not cross player's path within 20 KM.
Made cruise speed dependent on aircraft type
Made generation of opposition flights configurtable - See \RofCampaign\Data\RofCampaign.config
Changed campaign extension to .campaign. Loader now filters on ".campaign".

Fixes:
Fixed memory leak
Reduced wind strength
Extreme altitude: Most flights are between 2K and 5K meters. Some 2 seater flights are lower. No changes.
Made the red X work smile
Fixed bug in combat report: no planes show up in drop down.
Increased default opposition odds to improve contact chances.

Pat, I have also made up a ReadMe downloadable on the download page if you do not mind. I have collected there some information you have posted.

Hi Patrick

I tried the campaign generator (20091105-0705_RoFCampaign) and find it very satisfying. What I liked most was that I never knew when an enemy flight would appear, how high etc. In the stock campaigns you always know when something will happen.
I scanned and scanned and scanned the skies while on patrol, always a little anxious. This is immersion for me (and no, we didn't encounter anybody, but then not every flight should encounter E/A).

There are a few small things:
1) The font is somehow very big and strange. It doesn't allow for the name of my pilot to be displayed entirely. I tried changing the fonts in the settings to ones I actually have on my system, but doesn't look like it changed anything.

2) I like the idea of always being the flight leader. But I started my campaign as lieutenant, and had the major as my wingman, the captain as wingy in my next flight.

3) Make the briefing sticky, ie. I would like to be able to re-visit the briefing after mission creation.

4) Maybe throw in some random intel from time to time, like enemy observation aircraft have been spotted north of your assigned patrol area?

5) I fly without waypoints or labels, so maybe include desired altitude for the waypoints in the briefing. Or where those completely at the discretion of the flight leader back then?

Thank you so very much for your work

Dobby

Thanks for the feedback Dobby.

1. I will probably have to make font size settable.
2. I do want to make a change such that you are not always in command of a mission.
3. That can be handled easily enough.
4. Agreed. Little points of immersion are always fun.
5. That can be done too. Maybe a brief description of every waypoint.

Right now empty skies are my #1 priority. I have been surprised by the lack of visibility. I think that I know the answer and odds are good for something within a couple of days.

A: open RofCampaign\Data\RofCampaign.config. Set the base flight parameter for your side to zero. This will reduce the number of friendly flights.
If it sill happens, reduce the enemy flights to 0. Increase opposition flight odds 100.
Improvements are coming int terms of performance options.

...

When I set either of the base flight lines to "0", I get an error msg when trying to create a mission:
"No central fields available for missions" or "No allied fields available for missions" So far, I can only run RoF Campaign with settings as shown below:
ChalkboardFontKey = "Freestyle Script";
PilotFontKey = "Freestyle Script";
MissionDescriptionFontKey = "Serif";
BaseAlliedFlightsKey = 2;
BaseCentralFlights = 2;
OppositionOdds = 50;

I must be doing something wrong.

Could be an issue in the code. I'll look into it. The behavior that I want is to create missions with o friendly flights but not create missions with no enemy flights. I might not be coded properly to accomplish that. If not it will be fixed shortly.

I'm wanting to give this a try but I'm having issues with JAVA.

I'm running Windows 7 RC and cmd.exe is associated with .jar files.
I've tried changing it in the control panel but it won't.

I can get the program to run if I right click and open with Java SE Binary.
But I get an error stating the program can't find planes.txt or something.

Its looking for the files in my C:\Windows\System32\ folder instead of my Rise of Flight folder.
I think this is because I can't get windows to not associate cmd.exe with .jar files.

Any Ideas?

I have set up 2 campaigns in RoF but when I double click the .jar (as per the instructions)it just opens another folder containing a META-INF and rof folder?
Am I supposed to extract the files in the jar. to the RoF folder?

I just re-read the complete post and saw what I missed the first time, i.e. I don't have JAVA

Version 1.0.2 has been sent. Please wait for a post by Dart or Gremlin providing notification that it has been uploaded before downloading.

This one should be a big improvement to the empty skies syndrome. I ran a mission that started with friendly and enemy squadrons tangling (Use CTRL/SHIFT-F2 view). Then I got on station and got into a tangle with a patrol of Albatros AND a patrol of Pfalz. Skies should be much less friendly.

V1.02
New Features:
- Revamp of opposition flights resulting in much more contact.
- New GUI backgrounds by Seiseki
- Improved GUI arrangement
- New paper background.
Bug Fixes:
- Major bug fix to get other flights going. They just flew circles.
- Removed inadvertent display of picture file name on chalkboard

Odd that I am the only one having problems with this Application.
It now seems that it seizes hold of part of my RAM or something...I'm not technically smart enough to guess. BUT, even though I have exited the program, completely....when I try to change an entry in the RoFCampaign.config file, I can't. I am repeatedly told that the program is being used by some other application. It is not. It does not show in my windows taskbar, not in task manager, nowhere!

I cannot even simply delete the RoF Campaign folder en toto.

The only way I can 'unlock' the RoF Campaign folders/files to start afresh is to re-boot my computer. That is silly. Any idea what is up? Does this have to do with your reference to a "Memory Leak" issue???

Meanwhile, also, as Ive said before, with the default settings of 5 and 4 for base settings, the generated mission is unplayable for metotally freezing, delayed, worse than Slide Show...and I've yet to see any enemy aircraft closer than FAR away at extreme distances on the Map. My aircraft even on autopilot seems to be flying SLOWLY on the map...takes Forever to get anywhere....Something is just not right.

My Rig isnt that totally horribleand works for other RoF missions and all IL2 missions, FWIW.
