Perhaps some of our skin modders for WOFFue will be able to come up with a rounded wing-tip version of the Spad 13, to go well with a tweaked FM for the early 200hp version.

Will also look at the early Nieups., the Alb. D.III/V/Va, and the Fokker D.7 and 8 for a ver. 3.0 update - might take me several months to get to that however.

In the meantime I hope ver. 2.0 will eventually be posted on CombatAce - it sure is taking a while for the file to be approved. biggrin

Thanks.
Yes I am very interested in the historical engine variations which played a “major role” in things like the Spad VII and Spad XIII engines changes as the war progressed.

Thanks Jeanba and Duke for the encouraging words - will do a ver. 3 update eventually, perhaps will look at the Pfalz too.

In the meantime, ver. 2.0 of the FM pack is now available for download at the link posted a few posts above.

Happy flying,

Pleased to report gents' that WOFFue on a Mac (in WineSkin) works beautifully with the latest WOFFue patch ver. 4.18. Frame rates seem to have improved slightly as well, and all mods tested work well, including the FM tweaks posted under this thread. Have updated the relevant, long entry on WOFFue installation on a Mac with the necessary info. Some representative pics. below of ver. 4.18 running well.

Happy flying,

August 5th! But it only has 1 update that I see in changelog.

Allow new sequence of order numbers to be entered and validated after install, or re-install. includes all the previous updates too

Anyone care to translate that into English for me? Kinda sounds like all it does it allow a different type of order number be used to validate new purchases, perhaps to help signify the difference between WOFF UE and WOTR orders?

Posted recently I would assume. I only discovered the patch a few days ago and happy to report that it works beautifully in WineSkin on a Mac - just as good if not better than ver. 4.15. It seems that the patch update thread here on SimHQ is still listing ver. 4.17 as the latest one. I guess OBD is busy with WOTR and hasn't changed the ver. no. here on the thread. Doesn't seem to be much of a difference in terms of changes from ver. 4.17 to 4.18 - but 4.17 never worked properly in WineSkin...aircraft would begin in mid-air and keep rotating/levitating in the same spot. 4.18 solves the problem and I now recommend it to all Mac users, especially if you're still on ver. 4.12 or 4.15.

Just guessing - maybe something to do with WOFF UE and possible new content from WOTR??

Correct, until Vons mentioned it, I never knew OBD posted 4.18 stealthily.

Soon as I get online I’ll check it out for....dunno what I am looking for.
Guess I’ll see how big 4.17 is to 4.18 and that will give me some idea.

Hello gents,

Not a post directly related to the FMs - but if you are running WOFFue on a Mac, the install procedures I've outlined under the relevant post for Mac installs, in the stickies/faq thread, should also work for WOTR. Currently busy with non-sim related things but will start looking at doing a ver. 3.0 update of the FM pack in a couple of months.

Happy flying,
Von S smile2

Hello gents',

Ver. 3.0 of the FM update pack has been sent to CombatAce for approval and posting...should be up in a day or two at the following link:

https://combatace.com/files/file/16799-fm-tweaks-for-woffue/

Ver. 3.0 includes tweaks for the two-gun Sopwith Tripe, tweaks to the Clerget and Bentley Camels and introduction of an early 110hp Le Rhone Camel, also modifications to the early Fokk. D.VII, later D.VII (Mercedes D.IIIaü powered), and the BMW D.VIIf variant that now has a top speed closer to 210 kph as historical. More info. included with the Read Me file in the update pack.

Version 4.0 will follow much later with focus on the Alb. D.III, V, and Va types, also the SPAD 13 variants. That should be it for the updates but I might put out a service tweak later on and maybe skim over the early Nieups. and Parasol types if necessary.

Happy flying,
Von S smile2
