Hello all, from the Illinois Prairie! Long-time lurking, first-time poster.
I am so close
to getting Red Baron 3D up and running on my new machine - I can taste it. But I also taste the dirt when I slam into the ground
!! Relevant machine specs:
AMD Athlon II X2 240 - 2.8Ghz
Windows 7 Home Premium, 64Bit
Integrated ATI Radeon HD4200 Graphics
4GB memoryInstall process:
Original Red Baron II CD
Red Baron 3D Super Patch
Red Baron First Aid Kit Patch
Changed Target in Shortcut to -windowed
Basically followed all advice in this thread, the sticky thread in this section, and at the Mechanics Shop at Jasta 5
Game loads in windowed mode, under 600x800 (or whatever) resolution
No intro movie, but I'm fine with that
Can navigate menus just fine
Can fly Single Missions fine - little quick, but manageable
Problem comes when starting a career. I make my pilot and go to Carrer Menu and go to my first mission and...I can't take off! Full Autopilot and Navigation Autopilot nose me into the ground. I try manually, but as soon as I'm at about 30% power, I nose into the ground. Have tried yanking the stick all directions, still nose in the ground. Try, try, try - I cannot take off! I feel like Clark Griswold in European Vacation
: "I can't get left! Look kids, Big Ben, Parliament!" Once I'm in the air, like you begin in the air in a single mission, I'm pretty sure I'd be fine.
I tried the Turbo in the First Aid Kit and set to 50% (thinking its a speed vs. joystick issue), but when I exit it sets itself back to 100% - I can't get Turbo to stay on 50%.
Any suggestions? As I said, I am so close
! Man, I hope this thread is still a little active...!?
