On the briefing room map, the flight path map, there are red and green lines. What does each color represent ?

Red are lines are showing your route, drawn between your waypoints, outwards to the mission.
Green are the return.

You can also adjust waypoints using the Up/Dn Lt/Rt in the middle of the lower toolbar in the Mission Briefing screen.
(you choose which waypont below in the pull down box).

The rings show the main areas of activity (you may also still see enemies outside of this. Inner ring will be the main focus).

Thanks Polovski. That is what I was thinking, but wanted to be sure.

Wow! That's a rather handy if incredibly stealth feature. Still new things to discover 10 years in. biggrin This will make those hair raising 160* formation turns much less terrifying. I did scour the FAQ and found nary a mention of this.

Cheers

Epower, that’s a recent feature. Implemented in PE if I remember correctly. I’d also like to see altitude adjustment at these waypoints. Or, I could wait for Jara to update his ME.

Sure, then you’ll tell us there is a problem with the distribution because of some beer drinking holiday in Prague. cheers
Seriously, thank you for keeping up with OBD releases. I’m looking forward to be able to use your wonderful tool again.

The campaign mission file is in the same spot with the same parameters. Nothing changed there. I’m manually editing everything before a campaign mission without the editor and it’s a pain because there is no visual of the waypoints.

you can easily edit the altitude if you go into the mission file.

\OBDSoftware\WOFF\OBDWW1 Over Flanders Fields\missions\historical\OFF_QC_Mission.xml <- open this with a text editor when the pop up comes up to use mission editor.

navigate to the first squad which is your flight and edit any of the rows: the bold are the altitude in meters. But as you can see, you can edit any of the numbers between the double quotes. pilot skill, morale, fuel, ammo, payload (bombs), speed...
