The long-awaited unofficial community expansion to OFF is now available at Combat Ace. See the posting for the full list of contributors.

This is a complete package--no other mods or downloads required. It's designed to be easy to use for everyone, with no hassle. But give it plenty of time to install and configure itself on first run as it's 1.7GB of stuff all together.

Notice it's not quite version 1.0. This is a first public beta. With extensive changes to flak, guns, ammo, balloons, etc. it would benefit from testing and feedback from experienced flyers. The incendiary ammo and balloon system still experimental, so consequences for mis-use still are not in place during testing. You're on the honor system for now.

If you go ahead and test how effective it is against airplanes, let us know on the support page, or if you experience bugs or run into other problems. If you don't want be a part of such experiments, wait a little bit for further refinements.

As always, read the fine print (backup your pilot files--they're now easier to restore than ever). And have fun!

HI olddog;

Before you uninstall OFFbase I have to ask you a couple of questions.

Did you read the FAQ and backup you pilots before installing OFFice?

Did you run "OFFramp" and backup all your OFF files before creating OFFbase pilots, etc. If you did, you need to run OFFramp again to restore your backed up files before uninstalling OFFbase.

OFFbase does not have an elegant uninstall feature, so you are going to have to delete the "OFFice" directory structure on your hard drive and then delete the icons on your desktop etc. Here is an example of the directory structure where you should find OFFice.




Delete the "OFFice" directory once you have restored your OFF files from the "OFFramp" application.
Restore the pilots that you backed up prior to installing OFFice.

Hope this helps you. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask and since Lothar is the developer of this application, you may want to PM him directly for any particular questions.

Best Regards

No need to uninstall it. Just deactivate any of its JSGME mods and launch OFF normally as always if you don't want to use it.

OFFset can restore your settings from the pre-OFFbase state. Just run OFFset, click the Import button, and you'll see a Pre-OFFramp Backup in the list with all your prior settings.

Lothar;

Won't he have to restore his original pilot files as well?

Thank you guys for the replys it seems like my OFF install is running OK so I will leave well alone.

Im sure OFFice is one great addition to OFF but I had so much problems with, just when I thought all was running well I got the message "MISSION TARGET FILE ERROR ERROR CHECK = EOR then "CO-ORD ERROR". no missions were loading.

So im more than happy with the std OFF.

Thank you again.
