Hello all, Just wanted to say I picked up Wings Ue and it is truly awesome game. I've also been following many of your posts in the last few weeks, especially the challenges. I have also been watching quite a bit of your utube vids nice! especially enjoy yours ACE PILTO, love the commentary on my second monitor while I'm flying lol. I also quite enjoy all the paint schemes with a special shout out to BANJOMAN'S Grim Reaper=). I've been a big fan of WWI sim since days of Red Baron which I spent more hours on than I could count. I am also a big military history buff in general,almost any era interests me. Anyway I am impressed in general by this community thus far in how civil and helpful everyone is so I decided to join and am looking forward to reading everyone's posts and enjoying the WOFF sim even more thoroughly. GREAT JOB OBD !!! I know drinks on the new guy! lol.

Thank You. Did have quick question on how to add a thread to followed list? I was also wondering when you go to enlist a pilot it asks you at bottom of log what skill level.rookie or veteran. What exactly does this affect? Is it the combat autopilot skill?

Yes, your pilot's autopilot skill level.

Ok so if I select Rookie will my pilot ever become a veteran or am I rookie forever. (I wondered why I always got saddled with the old nag when new aircraft are available)

I don't think that the autopilot skill level setting affects which plane you get.

All of the historical aces in your squad will get the best planes first, regardless of rank or number of victories. If there are any left over they will be assigned to other pilots based on rank.

One of my favorite things about JJJ65's Mission Editor is that I can override this situation and select my own plane.

C:\Users\Your Logon Name\Documents\OBDWW1 Over Flanders Fields...is where it should be using the K key pal.

If using mods (SweetFx) then normally the print screen button is used and the shots will be in the main WOFF folder

Hi pal,not sure ive never taken a picture of my pilot etc..I think for that you may have to use something like Faststone capture or some other screen capture software. I do know that K ( without mods) or Printscreen ( with mods) will take photos whilst in the main flight game screen..Maybe someone else can help NightFlyer out with this guys?

Try using Shadowplay's screenshot hotkey if you have an Nvidia card?

The “k” key works in sim only (when CFS3.exe is running the show). To take screenshots in the shell (when WOFF.exe is running) use any screen capturing software. Even the snipping tool that comes with Windows will work.

Hey Nightflyerx, thank you for The hearty welcome and congratulations on your success for nicely dispatching a Roland and a Halberstadt! Well done my friend. I seem to be flying with many a horse shoe and 4 leaf clover as in my last 2+ missions I have come out on the wrong end of twin Spandau’s! My trusty Pup has brought me home shot full of holes and rudder cables nearly unusable! I think my luck is starting to desert me, mainly due to my aggressive and foolhardiness of chasing my enemy back low and over their lines. I should know better, as I have been archied, mg’d from enemy troops and jumped by e/a returning from home patrol. I think I have used almost all of my 9 cats lives. April 1917 is just over half done and I begin the 18th of April with an airfield attack! I raise a glass to you in your continued success against the enemy and look forward to hearing from you and your exploits from 54 squadron! Cheers to you sir, and to 54 from 66 Sqdn!!

Hey all. I had a question about the realism setting for Fokker DR I. I read the fighting and flying guides PDFs already. The one for Fokker DR I guide recommends setting FM to medium for more accurate feel. Does this still hold true with WOFF UE? I wasn't sure because I know they are older guides and I like to fly with full realism at least on FM lol. Thanks for any help ahead of time and fly safe!

The K key for screenshots works in WOFF fine. It saves to C:\Users\<Your Logon Name>\Documents\OBDWW1 Over Flanders Fields so look there.

If you use sweetfx then it will not work, sweetfx info says something along those lines I believe.

K key works fine here. If it does not for you then check your key assignments or other background programs that may use the same key.


As per the FAQ:

26) Where are my screenshots stored that I took in sim using the K key?

By default they will be in your Documents in Windows, once there look in the
OBDWW1 Over Flanders Fields sub folder.

So for Windows 7 and Windows 8, and 10 users:
browse to C:\Users\Your Logon Name\Documents\OBDWW1 Over Flanders Fields

If you find no screenshots, or K is not working, then make sure you don’t have mods installed such as SWeetFX as it may override any game screenshots and stop K from working at all. Sweetfx can use PrntScrn key to take screenshots, but it saves its own screenshots to the sim’s main folder.
For example C:\OBDSoftware\WOFF\OBDWW1 Over Flanders Fields folder.

Hi all. I had a question about getting a particular skin to display. The grim reaper skin from banjo man will not display.I have tried every trick I could think of. Switching pilots reloading game and renaming dds file nothing works to get this one skin to display,all others display just fine. Any ideas? I also made sure correct aircraft Alb DIII early/Alb DIII was selected. I was also wondering since I downloaded skin pack,how do you get the historical aces in your squadron to display their personal paint schemes?Thanks for help.

There's also a DIII OAW variation. Other than that I'm stumped. If the grim reaper skin is in the same folder as all of the other skins it should show up.

The HAs should automatically have their proper skins in campaign missions.

Out of curiosity, how many skins do you see in your skins folder? There should be more than 6,000! For more information, please check out this old thread.

I'm wondering if maybe skins didn't display because I have switched on and off Top aces only setting in workshop several times.

Another quick question is Hauptmann highest German rank in WOFF? Also do you get promoted to squadron command officially? or just kind of take over as flight lead? Noob questions I know,wasnt sure if mission editor tool was only way to assign/reassign pilots. Thanks again for help.

Highest German pilot rank in WOFF is Rittmeister, highest naval aviator rank is Oberleutnant zur See and highest observer rank is Hauptmann.

UPDATE: Coincidentally, I just experienced this same thing myself. I recently made a list of my favorite skins. I went through all of the skin files one by one using IrfanView and picked out the ones that appealed the most to me. One was the SE5 for Cecil Lewis in RFC 56 for 1917. I was going to use it in a campaign mission today but didn't see it listed. It doesn't show up in QC either. I confirmed that his file follows the same naming convention as all of the others in this group. Interesting.

Check, ps, the empty spaces in the skin filename. I have experienced similar problem and it was caused by additional space between adjacent words in filename.

No, I don't see any additional spaces. Not a big deal but it is odd.

No, I don't see any additional spaces. Not a big deal but it is odd.


Could you post a screen shot of the file name or retype it here?

This is just a guess, but I think it should read

Have you checked his AC type is really SE5 and nnot SE5a?
Second possibility is that there was not available free ace skin slot in mission for Lewis. WOFF can assign max 5 or 6 individual ace skins (for the same aircrfat), so, if there were more than 6 aces flying Se5, someone had to draw quadron's default skin only.

Regarding the skin for Cecil Lewis...

The problem is not the naming, the problem I think, it´s the way it was saved when it was created. I opened the file with DXTBMP and resaved it as a DXT1 (with alpha). And voila, it works.

For any future ones, it should normally be DXT1 with No alpha for most aircraft skins.

I was wondering if anyone had any idea if WOTR would include the Russian Front campaign as well as North Africa,Italy etc. In other words I was wondering if this would include all theatres during the period 1939-1945 or if it would be just west front focused? I know Il2 does Russian front but would be super awesome to have such a major campaign for WOTR.I know probably too massive to do everything but one can wish =). I would have asked on WOTR news but thread closed lol. 2 rounds of drinks to everyone and fly safe!

I had a question about some AI settings in workshop. For realism sake do you guys usually fly with reduced vision acuity and AI damage affects skill turned on or off? I have been flying with them on and was just curious what everyone uses.
