This is another simulation that has slipped by me without trying, I am still using a P3 1.4 512mb Ram Voodoo 5500 system, curious if Pacific ver 2 or 3 will run fine on my system. Any info and recommended mods appreciated. I really like EAW and the others I have tried just didn't to it for me thanks. Being that I like EAW how will CSF2 compare, landing on carriers and fighting in the pacific should be a nice environment. Thanks for any info!

Not great on that Voodoo 5 system I'm afraid but it will run in lower resolutions (1024x768 or below). CFS2 looks nice, better than EAW in fact but doesn't have the campaign backing.

Okay so my system should play CFS2 fine then. Amazingly I still use 800x600 haha, would CFS3 run fine or would there be some graphic anomalies with the Voodoo 5500.

Also Which Mig versus Korea mod came out better Flight 1 or Fox Four? Looks like there was allot of mods for CFS2. If anyone wouldn't mine mentioning some of the really well done conversions and campaigns (ones that where complete and done well), even the ones you have to pay for, would be great. Thanks!

CFS2 will run ok, CFS3 not at all really.

No idea about the add-ons, like you said CFS2 had soooo many I can't keep up with them all! wink

I would keep an eye on the EAW forum for news of the South Pacific Air War addon. This might give you the carrier fix your looking for plus the nice campaign structure of EAW.

Just a thought....

Here is a good post with lots of addon for CFS2.

http://205.252.250.26/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1117604819

Some of the Links are not working but most of the links are. You need to read this post from its frist page to its last page to get the most information out of it. It takes a little time but its worth it. You will leran how to build Missions and add new planes and Ships and improve your sceneries and be able to fly with more plane and in more Theaters than you ever though possible.

It has a World map through it Mission Builder and lots more.

Thanks for replys was away for awhile.

Thanks Colonel Kern I will keep my eye out for that.

Mr Miamieagle just the man I wanted to talk to, I ran across a earlier post of yours with lots of reference, thanks for the link to above post as well, I will read it page for page.

I take it there was no patch for CFS2 correct?

In a nutshell what are in your opinion the good well done campaign addons, and mods for CFS2.
Also what is your opinion of the Korea mods done for CFS2, anyone have a better campaign then the others.

I do not mind paying for Addon Campaigns , any you recommend?

Would you happen to have all the good mods done in a organized fashion that you could put on a DVD or DVDs for me, a few members have done this for me in the past for other games and I paid a good fee for there time.

Thanks for the help!

Lonny
