When I downloaded through Internet Explorer it converted the .MIZ suffix to a .ZIP. To get it the mission to work you need to rename the file to .MIZ

I had further problems with Vista trying to rename the file. Through Vista Explorer it appeared I had renamed the file correctly to to tutorial01.miz but in reality the rename had called the file tutorial01.miz.zip

I had to resort to the DOS prompt to rename the file properly but then the mission worked.

in the bottom middle of my screenshot you can see a knob that can be used to cycle the hud modes. put it on "CETKA" for the reticle. clicking on it with the mouse will cycle through the 3 hud modes.

the keyboard shortcut is Right Shift + the 8 key.

New missions are a possible, yes. Unfortunately GTA IV for the PC currently sucks away my gaming time, will need a couple of more days R&R in Liberty City before I return to the Black Sea cost.

There's a lot of manuals for this game, but I still had no idea where to start.

This guide is amazingly helpful. I used it to successfully start up, hover, and land while learning about autopilot (had no idea), trim, and all the little lights.

I can't wait to go through the whole thing, but it's nice being able to learn without having to dive into the 300+ page manual yet or die repeatedly.

Just like to add my voice to the chorus of thanks and hurras. Super helpful.

Anybody got any opinions on the "best" single mission or campaign or training path or whatever to follow on from Para's tutorial?


Cheers,

Para, you helped me finger out what I was doing wrong in shooting the Vikr. Forgot to set the laser to standby. Gonna try that and see if that gives me shoot authorization. I too made a small mission just for training in navigation and weapons employment. Until I am proficient at both, and landing the chopper, I am not even going to attempt the missions and campaign as I would embarass myself and that would just piss me off. Thanks again.

One little addition to this brilliant guide, selecting hardpoints is not mentioned until the rocket section. It might be good to mention that it is a Collective function. As I recall, no hardpoints are selected by turning on the Master Arm switch. Or did I miss that?

Hi,
I downloaded the mission file for this tutorial

http://freenet-homepage.de/parabellum/tutorial01.miz

and was expecting a .miz file but when I open the zip file that gets downloaded, it only contains a file called missions and options. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for this tutorial. I have yet to blow anything up with this simulation!

Hey BuddyWoof, that's discussed earlier in the thread. For some reason IE changes the extension - just rename it with the .miz extension and it works.

Thanks Arthonon. so add .miz to both files? These threads get so big, it's hard to spot certain info even if you read the entire thread

scratching my head. For some reason, when I download the file, the filename is tutorial01.zip. So you mean, get rid of the .zip extension and rename it tutorial01.miz right? I think I got it now. Thanks.
