Does the game auto-generate "previous kills" for the pilots it creates? If so, I'd love to see that part go away.

Patiently waiting...


Unfortunately, auto generated pilots show random kills I am afraid. I am unable to change that. Historical aces will show correct info though.

Thanks for taking the time to respond. I can understand that. It's a minor thing anyway - just something I noticed. So far it hasn't lessened my enjoyment of the game.

sorry if this has been answered already... how do you extract this? I can't seem to extract it with any of my programs in Windows 10 or ... <cough> Windows Vista.

my install of 7zip didn't work the first two times I tried it-- but then I remembered it's a 10-year old version of that program. so I'll try updating 7zip and give it another shot.. thanks ArisFuser and dutch.

Version 1.3 is ready in the first post. This version adds hundreds of Commonwealth aces (although some are still missing). The mod is almost finished.

I'm starting to think I'm too stupid for this. The link works fine. If I click on the file it opens the folder, just like if I had downloaded it. But it's still in DropBox, not on my computer. If I right-click it I get a bunch of things I can do with the link. None of them actually downloads the file onto my PC. If I right-click and select 7-zip (which I've used a lot) it doesn't ask if I want to open the Archive, just if I want to add it to the Archive, which means it isn't zipped.

I'm missing something, but I have no idea what.

Thank you Aris! Much appreciated.

I'm still not getting it. I don't see any way to download it.

SS, Here's what I do to download it:

That's where the RAR file is. You can now unzip it (or unRAR it) and place it in the correct directory, following the structure in the RAR'd file.

Okay, now I'm feeling extremely stupid.

Fullofit, thanks for going to all that trouble. I saw the 'Sign In' button, but didn't even notice the 'Download' Button. And now I'll never know if it's my eyes, my brain or my PC, because...

ArisFuser, thanks for taking that extra step. I had no problem with downloading from there at all.

Thanks to both of you for helping a blind, stupid old man to get this great mod. I already had v.2 installed. and now I'm happy as a clam.

Well, in your defense, took me a few moments to figure it out also.
Think they changed the format as it used to be very simple.

I can download the .rar file but 7-zip won't extract it for me. Get error message "Can not open file ""C:\Users\randr\Downloads\Historical_Information_1.3_by_Aris.rar" as archive. Same problem I have had all along (i.e. with previous versions).

This gave me a clue that my 7-Zip was out of date. Updated it and now it works. Thanks!!
