I have decided to reinvent myself as a German recruit. I am going to do the lot and just did my first observation flight. I think this should be an interesting experience. cheers

It was the 1st of May 1916 and my briefing was to watch carefully what the pilot does and learn from his actions.

I have no idea what that thing in front of his face is or what purpose the handle bit plays .....

I'm pretty sure it is so you can do the squadron's laundry while you are flying!

Hi Baxter,
I believe it could the engines decompression handle.
On early engines and before starting, the cylinders were primed with fuel by hand.
To allow the engine pistons to be moved and fuel to be added into the cylinders, the engine was turned (by rotating the propeller), moving each cylinder in turn.
The decompression handle was fitted on the rear of the engines cam shaft
When moved it altered the position of the cams on the camshaft, easing the valves and releasing the pressure inside the cylinders.
This allowed the propeller to be rotated by hand to move the engines pistons.
After fuel priming, the handle was moved back to the flight position.
Later inline engine had priming pumps fitted in the cockpit so the pilot could prime the engine cylinders.

Another question. The next phase gets you to fly solo but follow your trainers aircraft. How do I get him to take off first? He just sits there forever.

check your workshop settings.

If you have them set on player always leads, put it on 'by rank' this is the most probable reason.

If you have your preference set for wingman, take that off and don't fly with a wingman.

Either of those things can cause his to just sit there.

If he still doesn't get the idea, you can start down the runway, then stop, he will probably continue on.

Well as you probably can tell, I have not played this for a couple of years or more .... I checked my settings and changed a couple of things and now I am getting a message box

UISEL.xml file error - Goto workshops and reset WOFF!!

I get the same error message when I try to play WOTR as well.

Hallo Baxter,

At first I would deactivate all mods.

UISEL.xml you find in "OBDSoftware\WOFF\OBDWW1 Over Flanders Fields\campaigns\CampaignData\Default".
So maybe it is a solution to go to Workshop and press "Delete all pilots" and "Set to Defaults" (and maybe this is the meaning of the message, but I'm not sure).

I hope it's a little help. If not, I'm sure @Polovski can say more about it.


Greetings

Thanks for suggestions guys. When I deleted my pilots I crashed to desktop. I found a post on this issue from 2009 and the suggestion was to delete the UISEL.xml file altogether as a new one will be created on startup. That did not work either. I think maybe it is time for me to bite the bullet and have a go at playing it on my laptop.
