One of those hotshot, "I can fly the crate it came in" types.
"So, you can fly anything , eh? Let me see you get THIS thing off the ground!"
"Oops... I shouldn't have said that!"
Dux, how do ya' fly with all of that stuff in front of your face? And what's up with the trees?

Pooch,

It would be helpful if I could shrink that stuff but they are off most of the time anyway. Mind you, in comparison...flying the Spad in cockpit view is like peering through a pillar-box.

Some things are set to medium or low. I haven't tried more than one or two high settings yet. Ground detail isn't a big issue with me. My only problem is this thing which occasionally locks the game via an annoying message : RoF exe has stopped working, which only occurs when flying the Nieuport 17. confused

Otherwise, well addicted!

It looks like you are inside the 3d model of a bridge (Hence the large shadow), and the car is driving up it. Since you're inside the 3d mesh of the bridge, you can't see its structure...

I wondered how long it would take someone to spot that. wink

Folks,

Hmmm. Could be from "Chitty, Chitty Bang, Bang". That was in Technicolor. However, considering the black and white color of the car in question that looks more like it is powered by actor Fred McMurry's "Flubber" to moi. wink

Who knew? The dastardly Germans must have built a time machine, gone into the future, seen the movie and then stolen the invention? There were certain undesirable side affects they hadn't counted on. They should have waited until the sequel "Son of Flubber" came out....

So this is where you've been lately Dux. It's a friendly place and RoF is a smashing game. Too bad my old system would literally choke on it or I'd be up there with you chaps. Ta.
