Hi folks, the way I see it is that there is a 'total hours' that you can fill in which is what Woff reports.
For every report you will have to say how many of the latest sortie(s) hours were in each of the three activity zones depending on the zone and date. In theory (!) they should all add up....

For myself I don't know where the north flanders and south flanders border is...

Good point, Jim - I'll try to define a line between north and south Flanders.
There is no such division in WOFF, but in the real life front line activities.
I'll come back to you.

Ok, you can add your details after your flight.

Now I must go and fly myself!

The activity zones only change at the end of certain months, so fortunately there are long runs where the activity remains the same. You only really need to know at the end of each month if a player's is moving into a month with a different activity, otherwise steady-as-she-goes. (Edit: except for transfers ... that's a complication I forgot about)

But on the occasional month end that the activity is changing, then from that point on it will become very tricky to keep the past data and future data separate. I wish I had a brilliant idea to manage it, but I don't.

I'm worried that expecting the players to keep track of the various hours flown in each zone and have them report it accurately will be a complicated nightmare for you guys. I would hate to see you pull out all your hair!

I went through the questionnaire to add my pilots details but the list did not update. I've enlisted Corp. Olivier Papineau, of Gatineau, Quebec into the training squadron to be assigned Esc. 38 in the Verdun sector. They fly out of Dugny. Oh, and I'll be using B-level but may end up changing to C-level if possible. Cheers!


Kind regards,
Dave

I spotted you Leaf85 and you are now added to the drop-down list. Please do your entry again. I also think you should be a Sergent according to the rules above, but rank doesn't really matter except that you get points for promotion.

http://www.attrill.co.za/WOFFcampaign.htm

In theory you can only change levels by taking on a new pilot.

I have told Olham that I don't know how we will manage this at all for the reasons you give. With just a total of hours flown it is quite simple. But we shall see...

Just capture your data and we will sort it all out neaner

I thought we could add our flight hours to one of three lines: "Hot", "Medium" and "Quiet",
and every next flight add hours to one of that again.
If that is not possible, we must valuate each pilots's points only once at the end of every
month.

I have just enlisted my pilot, and saw that there are now three lines for the flight hours
in "hot", "medium" or "quiet" zones. Thanks for the working out, Jim!
I can always do the valuation for the weekly chart manually.

Now let us all try to survive - good luck, gentlemen!

Okay, I have finished (and reported) my first flight. Yikes. The Huns threw a party and invited my entire squadron.

I have created a JSGME version of the UI.XML file and placed it on my dropbox for anyone interested in using it.

This modified UI.XML will only display black dots for aircraft when the Labels key is turned on, and it will also only display the label details for your own squad. All other labels details have been turned off.

You can download it from here:

Black dots and your own squad label info only. Click here to download

make sure to unzip it into your "mods" folder, and then implement it via JSGME implementation tool.

My first sortie is logged - and I am already wounded! It's a tough world!
I can only continue on June 9.
The gunner in my Roland must be deaf and blind - a Nupe flew right behind us and shot us up,
and he still missed it, instead of shooting it down.

However - shall we post our pilot books? Here is mine.

Hi

Help is needed. I can take a in-flight shot, but I am unable to take a screen shot of my pilot book - any ideas?

Cheers

Hit print screen button on your keyboard. Go to Windows circle logo on bottom left, click on it and select the All Programs folder>Accessories>Paint. Paste (ctrl v) into Paint window then save as a jpeg, then upload here.

I just flew my first mission and logged 64 minutes with RFC-10 on a B.E.2c. No enemy aircraft sighted. I could barely get that clunker up to 8,000 ft. before she kept stalling on me. My home airfield is in north Flanders (medium sector), yet half of my flight (30 minutes) was in south Flanders (hot sector). When logging hours, it's the sector we fly our mission in right? Or is it just the sector our airfield is in?

Or simpler download Greenshot ... works for all UI shots.
For some reason the in-game shots don't work with it (I get a black screen) so I use the standard "k" procedure for those.
(In FSX it works for all my shots)
