I wouldn't want anything removed from what is there now. I'm simply suggesting adding 1915, 1916, 1917 and 1918 to the existing menu. It would make no sense to remove the existing single aircraft choices.

This has probably been requested before, but a mechanism for bailing out - for German air crew in the last year of the war?

I was under the impression that only a handful of German pilots used a parachute to bail out, but have recently seen a thread on the Aerodrome forum that lists 49 bailouts from April 1918 onwards by Jasta pilots alone. That is just the known ones, and does not include crew from 2-seaters. About 2/3 of them were successful.

As WOTR already has this mechanism, I would guess it could be ported over to WOFF? Though it would need to be restricted in some way to German air crew in 1918 only.

For someone I can send my brand new rig who will install and run newest WOFF BH&H. I paid big bucks for this rig and more big bucks for a local computer shop to do this. No joy and my wallet is $300.00 lighter.

Arup,

Not sure what you are asking. Sounds like you bought a new computer to run BH&H2 and paid a computer shop to install it, but they couldn't do it and still didn't give you your money back, is that correct? $300 for a new computer or $300 to install software? If the first, $300 doesn't sound like a lot of money for a beefy enough computer to run WOFF. Can you let us know your specs?

Depending on what you have, I, or someone else, may be able to walk you through installing the game.

The post is a bit vague. My new rig has a GeForce 2080ti vid card, i7 quad core, win 10 os, 4 sticks of RAM and a whole bunch of other stuff including hi rez gaming monitor. It is a year old but has been collecting dust. It was about top of the line when first assembled! I and a friend put it together, installed os, Direct x9, etc. It worked for two days then blue screened. I couldn't make it work so another friend said he'd take a look and never did. So a few days ago got it from friend then took it to a computer shop and they ripped me for $300.00 as nothing works... except the blue screen and windows icon. I am so wanting to fly this Sim again but just don't know what to do. I don't have internet so can't do this at my house. This is a stand alone Som once installed, right? That is... an internet connection shouldn't be needed once installed, right? I sure wish this could be purchased and installed via discs for people with integrity... like me! I would never, ever let someone else use my discs.

Ah, sounds like a hardware or Windows problem, then. Your system sounds like it should be able to easily handle WOFF.

Although I am hardly a tech expert, there may be some event or error logs that might help you to identify the problem. Have you tried booting into Safe mode? If you get that to work, you might be able to diagnose the problem. Another possibility is an improper setting in the BIOS that runs when you first start up the computer. Finally, since the computer is a year old, several drivers may also be out of date. Hard to tell without booting up the system. What did the computer shop tell you about not being able to repair it?

If kksnowbear is around, he might be able to give you some more useful problem-solving or trouble-shooting advice. You might try sending him a PM. You definitely need a stable system before you can install and run any sophisticated programs.

Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help.

Pol, you probably will want to move this thread to the Technical Support forum.

I've mentioned this before but giving it a bump in the current climate of helpful patches in the hope it can be done.

I'd really like to see alternative weapon loadouts for some of the aircraft to enhance the accuracy of the sim. This wouldn't involve creating new weapons, just making them available on more aircraft such as......

Overwing Lewis for the Morane (this is how Pegoud and Gilbert became aces).

Overwing Lewis for the Caudron (not as common as with the Morane but Fonck got his first victory like this).

Angled firing Lewis for the BE2 (using the same angles as with the Bristol Scout).

Forward firing Lewis/Vickers for the FE2b (very common in late 1916 and 1917).


I think these would be very possible using the graphics already available in the sim and would heighten the accuracy and immersion even further, especially early war.


"A great deal of an aeroplane could be holed without affecting its ability to fly. Wings and fuselage could be—and often were—pierced in 50 places, missing the occupants by inches (blissfully unaware of how close it had come until they returned to base). Then the sailmaker would carefully cover each hole with a square inch of Irish linen frayed at the edges and with a brushful of dope make our aircraft 'serviceable' again within an hour."

Albert,

As to your last point, you mean something like this?

I'd be very much in favor of fixed forward guns as my eventual DiD4 men will be flying Fees.

Will indeed help with further immersion for some fine 1915/early '16 campaigning. Also, to append another wish here - if this is not too much work to implement, of course - if a Morane Type L one-seater variant could be created to go with the overwing Lewis too (or a nose-mounted Lewis, with deflectors on the prop.) - that would be wonderful.

Cheers all & happy flying,
Von S smile2

A Lewis that can be angled at a 45-degree angle would do wonders in Home Defence squadrons. wink

Please bring back the original chance of having a dud engine! As an option, perhaps, so instead of the current Yes/No option for engine failure it could be a three-way option: No engine failures (easy) - current chance of engine failure (normal) - original chance of engine failure (hard).

I second Bletchley's idea of easy, normal, and realistic (hardcore) engine failure options.

I know this is probably not going to fly (no pun intended), but in a Nieuport, the windscreen is hinged. I assume it was so they could cock their weapon and then fix it back in place. Many times I've had my engine let go and oil gets all over the windscreen, making it all but impossible to see. Would it be possible to make a mod that would allow you to lower the windscreen so you can see where you're flying and to land. It would make things easier. I looked in the settings and didn't see anything labled 'Enter-W'. Just a thought.

We have a button for leading the formation ourselves and one for it to be led by rank.

It would be more realistic for the Squadron or Staffel formation to be led by the Squadron commander.

Perhaps an additional option or replacement of the rank option with this one.

I have no idea how much modification this would require but it would enhance the realism considerably.

Just a small thing, but for damage modelling purposes stationary air cooled engines such as the RAF1a and RAF4a (BE2 and RE8) be treated more like rotary engines, i.e. with no coolant system to be damaged. At the moment they are treated as water cooled engine.

Edit: same is true for the Fokker D.VI which is correctly identified as having the Oberursel UR II rotary engine, but appears to be treated as water cooled for damage modelling purposes

Another small niggle - when flying in French sectors of the front the units on the ground are identified as 'British' except for the HQ which is 'Allied'. I would suggest changing all 'British' to 'Allied'. Also, on start-up, the voices of the men starting the engine are all in English (unlike flying for a German unit, where they are in German). Any chance of finding a WOFF French speaker who would be willing to do the voices? Also training, French missions. where BE2 is used as the trainer, and voices are all in English...would just add the correct 'colour' to have everything in French!

When your pilot dies, I'd like to have the option to continue playing as one of the computer-generated wingmen currently assigned to your dead pilot's squadron.
