I discovered that gog.com has Red Baron collection for 10 , and will be a nice investment If one of those superpacks work on it. Anyone tried? I will prefer a free patch that upgrades graphics, planes... bit If I need to search my old copy of Full Canvas Jacket I will search it. So anyone tried to add a megapatch over Gog.com Red Baron 3d?

S! Stratos,

I have no personal experience of the GOG RB3D package, but from what I hear it should be OK for single player and any of the superpatches should work. There are some issues with the MMP part though (the baronmmp.exe included in the package is not compatible with secured servers), but I believe that Flybert has a fix for that at Flybert's Chateau.

S! Stratos, Swordfish is correct.

The only difference between GOG's version and the Sierra version is a modification to the exe's so it does not ask for the CD. In SP, that is not a problem, in MP, as Swordfish stated, that causes problems with secure servers in MP.

I run Revenge of the Jastas with my GOG version with no problems.

GOG also has a forum for Red Baron which i frequent alot, so if there are any problems getting the game to run with Win7/Vista 64 bit, I may be able to help.

RotJ is a mod like Hells Angels and Western Front. The Aircraft models are extremely good, with it's strongest feature being that the aircraft have unique non-mirrored sides. (You know how in stock RB3D when you paint a plane, anything you put on the side of the aircraft becomes reversed on the other side? Ex 8800II becomes II0088 Weill in RotJ you can paint your plane so one side could have a knight with a lance and on the other side, a pink bunny rabbit.

The one problem I have is the difference for some of the planes for the Slewable cockpits compared to the static face forward cockpits can be very different. so wings can suddenly pop over areas that were clear view in the static view.

However, RotJ is no longer being worked on by its creator. The website for it is here:

Forum is here (which includes my nearly novel length war stories from flying this mod):

The last four updates are missing at the forum, so I have the entire mod up loaded here (with von Helton's permission):
