Salute! Saludo! Gru! Salut! Saluto! saudao! from RB3D Recruiting Officers

Come fly the skies of WW1, in Red Baron 3D!
When men were made of steel and planes were made of wood!
Hear your opponent grunt if wounded or scream if you shoot him in the head. Have your wings pop of if you over stress them, black out if too many G's are pulled, deal with gun jams, all the while looking at your opponent from mere feet away. Learn to take advantage of each planes strengths or weaknesses and how to exploit your enemies. Whether you live or die an honorable Salute is given.

For best graphics it is best to have a voodoo card. Either direct or by using a voodoo 2 with SLI patch through cable. But it works fine in OpenGL or Direct draw, just the graphics are a bit poor until you install the terrain patches.
There are some glide wrappers out there which are being improved each day. This one is about 99% perfected.

They are currently having server trouble.

You can get this one, though.......

http://benchmarksims.com/ROTJ/rotj.htm

It's not as elaborate, but should keep you occupied until WFP is working again.

There are about 2900 schemes in my MP Paint collection .. and really those are just a small part of http://www.flybert.net , the largest and most visited website for Red Baron enhancements and tools.

At least *most* of Promised Land should be out this week , I'm working with Kessler on some last little technical details today.

Check out http://www.swwisa.net , the home organisation of most RB modders.

Hi Kess
Thanks for the pointer. I browsed the site, and it seems to me that the PL UOP is mainly a graphics patch, in that it improves the stock terrain & objects?

I was wondering if there was a "realism patch" (Beery's superpatch is one, I think) that corrects flight models, damage models, inaccuracies in the game etc.

Still very confused...

It all depends on what your looking for. The PL patch cover all buildings/objects, taerrains in all seasons, sky/clouds, FX, sound effects, and so on. Future versions will cover planes/squads, flight models, damage effects, AI, and such.

If you run the current PL you could then run something like the western front patch to add in squads and planes and other neat campaign features. James Heltons Revenge of the Jasta's patch isnt truely compatible with the PL superpatch as he has several old PL graphics and the old PL soundpatch he put in his patch.

This would be a good site to add or a good blurb to include on how to patch the Valueline non-upgradeable version of RBII up to RB3D. http://www.billybishop.net/RedBaron3D/

You should put a warning beside "Sold Out" as their version of RB3D is hosed. Not even sure they have it available right now. Maybe they're fixing their version.

Thanks Hentzau

I wasn't sure who was selling what.

Here's the excerpt from the Billy Bishop site to upgrade the value line version.

How to UPGRADE the "VALUE LINE" Version of RBII to RB3D.

The next trick is for those of you who may have bought the Red Baron "2" game, and wish to upgrade it with the Super patch to RB3D.
These are the instructions to get your game to work that way.
1) Open the Registry Editor (run 'regedit')
2) Expand 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE'
3) Expand 'Software'
4) Expand 'Sierra On-Line'
5) Expand 'Red Baron 2'
6) Create a new key off of Sierra On-Line called 'Red Baron II'
7) Copy, word for word, every string in 'Red Baron 2' into 'Red Baron II'.
There is 'cddir', 'workdir', 'version' and another key named the same as the entry for 'version'.
8) Close the Registry Editor.
9) Run the Super Patch.
Credit for this one is to B. Massey.

Sorry to butt in here...but next time you try to recruit someone for your sim, dont go and friggin spam EVERY damn board on this website with it.

That's totally bad manners. I get enough ads and trash in my inbox every day, I dont want to see RB3D posts in every sim forum on SimHQ.

On the other hand, it was because of your posting in the Mig Alley forum that I decided to give RB3D a shot. I loved the original, but was put off by the need for 3dfx/glide support, since I have Nvidia cards. Browsing the sites, it looks like this may not be such a problem anymore. So I ordered the game. I hope the wrapper works!
