I flew for over 2 hours in my last sortie but was credited with 53 minutes. I was keeping track of the time with the seconds count at top left of the screen. It was over 8000 seconds which is 133 minutes according to my calculator.

If it can count the seconds correct - why does it not give the correct hours?
Here is no difference between British and Continental and American seconds and hours???

The only comfort for us is, that it seems to strike all of us the same way.

Olham, I wouldn't say the times are never valued correctly, but about 1-in-4 missions will short you in actual fight time if you compare it to an RL clock. I track this only flying in RL time as I have no idea what time compression might do to the tally. It can be very aggravating though when, as noted here by Scout and Jim, you have flown for nearly two hours only to be credited with 50 or so minutes. The worst I ever had was a 184 minute recce flight that I was credited 36 minutes for. Now THAT'S aggravating. But ah well, c'est la guerre, c'est la vie.

I've seen it happen sometimes. Once I flew a long bombing attack that took well over an hour to finish. To my surprise, the manager only credited my pilot with 30 minutes or so.

Maybe this is a question for Pol to try and answer? It may be WOFF or it may be MS code behind it.

Did you guys pause for screenshots, or did you really fly the whole mission
without any pauses?

Olham, when I am flying 'full real' I don't use pause at all unless there is some RL crisis I have to attend to, (but that has only happened a handful of times over the years). Of course, I am a glutton for punishment, so...

Strange, it never happened to me yet in the many missions I have flown in WOFF. I always check the mission time at the end and it has always been the right one. (I never controlled if it was precise to the minute but is overall correct)
I used to make a 4x time compression to skip the "circle and climb" part when not leader, but I don't anymore since 77 Scout gave me the tip of switching waypoints which works even if you are not leading.

I did use time compression for the boring landing bit.

Thank you, Lou - that was a nice surprise!

Hey, Bachmeier, we could share the evening drinks between us -
after all we both don't have that much pay, do we?
Now let's throw a coin, wether we shall feast in Pronville or down in Alsace...

UPDATE regarding 'short' time: I got a reply from Polovski via the 'WOFF support' e-mail and he said they have looked at this already a little while ago, that they think they have it fixed, and that the fix will be in the next update. However, when the next update will be out is unknown as they are quite busy with other things right now.

Congrats on getting those EKs, guys! You're in good company - only about 5.2 million people will receive the EK II. smile

I flew one mission today. It was a recon job close to our lines, so I thought we just might be able to pull it off without trouble. I was wrong. As we reached the area, our flight of three Aviatiks was attacked by a lone British Nupe 11. Fed up with these constant attacks, I decided to fight to the last man and bullet. The Nupe was stupid enough to fly in the crossfire of three observers, and after taking several hits it was seen spinning down out of control, but not before seriously damaging one of our Aviatiks, which had broke off, leaving a thick trail of smoke behind.

After the mission was over, we could see that the Nupe had indeed been destroyed. Unfortunately the damaged Aviatik didn't make it and both pilot and observer died in the crash. The kill was credited to my wingman.

Once again I'm grounded, this time until July 14, as we wait for new men and machines.

Or is the wingman regarded seperate from you?

Yes, of course. You can't get the kills of your wingman - unfortunately. biggrin

Yeah. The war passes quickly when you spend most of the time grounded!

Cleveland, OH, US
Sgt. Bilbo Baggins, RFC 70
July 12, 1916



Morning:
Command remembered that we can bomb things and asked us to remind Houplin Aerodrome with some 40 lb. bombs. We were a flight of 6 led by Capt. Cruikshank (HA) and made an impressive sight as we more or less formed up.



It was pretty dull: It began raining heavily almost immediately after that pic, so I didn't even have the benefit of practicing ground navigation or admiring the sites. No Germans came to us, we found none. Dropped our bombs and went home.


Evening:
This time Command asked us to remind one of the rail junctions near Bapaume of our capability. The weather was a bit better, and much as in my flights during mid-week Capt. Cruikshank suddenly broke off to attack a flight of 5 Fokker E.IIIs. I grinned. Perfect thing to relieve my stress.

Right.

Well, I did get a few random shots into 1 or 2, but my allies were simply vanishing. One of my companions had already had a bad engine and turned back, leaving three Strutters. Then one got into a collision so close off my left wing I thought it'd been me.

2 on 4 now. Someone got really lucky with a single bullet as I heard something crunch under the impact. I was still having some luck turning to my right and getting off the occasional stray shot, but at least 3 of them were trying to get on my 6.

That's when I noticed the Roland joining the party. God I'm beginning to hate those things.

I tried to turn for home, but two of the Eindeckers and the Roland still wanted to talk things over, so I turned back towards them. Stalled and ended up flying 90 degrees to the vertical, left wing up ... and nothing I could do seemed to make it better.

Crash. Bilbo's quest has ended.


Final Stats (already reported): 5.72 hrs, 6 sorties, 4 victories

I'll probably wait a bit before jumping back in. My Track IR is due Tuesday, and I might jump into category B at that point.

Lou, Spiffy medals, Thanks!

Olham, I have a stash of homemade Ale, wine, and spirits hidden at my secret forest hunting camp. Gotta find something to do on those days we don't fly.
