OldHat, great to see you again! Things are very quiet around here lately, so it is good to hear from a forum regular again!

Thanks for the updated training guide.

Thanks. I wish I had more time.

Didn't fly these missions, but played around with the log book a bit tonight.

I say old chap! That graphic of your flight is the bees knees! (horribly mixing idioms for other eras and implied accents...)

How did you you do that? Stock WOFF and i just don't know how or?

Thanks for the posts!

@HumanDrone - the graphic is the Debrief feature of Mission Editor. You can study your movements and actions after each mission. You can also reincarnate your dead pilot, if something goes wrong (e.g. your pilot spawns under ground, etc.).

that bloody mission editor.....I've tried....and failed miserably several times to install it. It looks like fun and w/ the consolidated airfields a marvellous add. The folder stuctures, what has to be JSME and what has to be added manually and opened when...and how....left me baffled. I've no doubt I'm not the only one in this boat. There is of course an installation read me apparently adapted to the meanest understanding yet my understandandings can't go under even that kindly intentioned bar. If any of you would care to expand on that read me w/ pix and arrows (always my favorite....with small parentheses that say "here dummy"), I for one, would be grateful to give it another shot......thx all

@gaw1 - sorry to hear your problems with ME. You do not need anything to install to use ME - just extract on disc and run "WOFF UE_Mission Editor.jar" (assuming you have Java installed).
Here is the illustrated manual/tutorial ME 1.3.0 Tutorial
If you need any assistance, contact me over PM.
