I just heard about this and felt I had to say something.

I am sad that the site will be going down. WWII Fighters Online had a great community there while I was there, and this news makes me even sadder to know that I may have had a hand in this happening. If this had happened as soon as two weeks ago, I'd have been happy as a clam. But since I came around a few days ago, this is very painful to hear. I am wondering what will happen next.

A sad occasion indeed....

[And now that I have had more time to think about this, the more hollow my words sound....]

Howdy Girls!

I thought I'd put up a post explaining what happened. I don't know if Fluke or Hemi is planning a more detailed explaination later or not.

The #*^!% forums crashed again. After it got sorted out the first couple of times, it seemed to be working fine but, last night it went belly up again.

Used to be Rammjager. Still would be if I could remember my passward here, but I changed my email address also, so I had to come up with something new.

I'll put some work into my website and start posting news and mods there. I have no intention of giving up on my mods, so I'd still be happy to share them with everyone.

The closing of WWIIF Online is something that we've been discussing behind the scene's for quite a while now, and we had plans of announcing it soon. Once the boards "crashed" again, we decided now was as good a time as any to mention it. We aren't shutting down because of any incidents in the recent past, or any current issues. We, Fluke and I at least, have merely rode this thing as long as it was enjoyable for us, and it's time for us to move on to other things. I myself have just entirely lost interest in WW2F Online, and the upkeep involved with the site. As Hammerd said when he "retired", when it's not fun anymore then it's time to move on. We have one hell of good community on the WW2F forums, and I'll miss that, but I sure won't miss dealing with the site issues!

I hope to see everyone hanging around this forum, it would be too bad to lose touch with you guys.

Rammjager: Good to see you here. You might try e-mailing the Admin here about your handle. I've seen people sort these things out. Also, you could try a spelling variation, or add an umlaut (Rammjger) and re-register. IMO, it is important that the WW2F "stars" like yourself be recognized over here.

You use the Character Map in Windows. Usually, it is located at Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/Character Map. A chart will open showing lots of different characters, like ,,, etc. In W98, you click on the square to select it, and it will show a code to type to make the symbol. For example, the registered symbol can be typed by holding down the alt key and typing 0174. The result: . Or you can copy the symbol and paste it into the word. In WXP, I believe you can only copy and paste.

Edit-the short version:-try typing alt+0228 (hold the alt key and type 0228). You should get .

Hi there, guys. Glad to see some of you have moved over to this site - hope this will be as good as the 'old' one.
And 'old' Bill, he's over here too?
What about mods, will they be downloadable from SimHQ?

Regards,
Slangen.

Well, Guys, I just signed up for membership at the other site and now it's gone.

I was just starting to get back into this sim and was really excited about all the fantastic mods coming available. I even had fantasies about painting some skins using some of these mods. I sure hope that we can keep the crowd together. I have a ton of questions pertaining to skinning. I got to believe that some site will be available for the mods to be downloaded from.

Whew!

That said, if anyone needs space to host a mod, I have plenty of extra room at my website. I think [I hope, anyway] that my site will become a general site for WWII combat simulators.

Yep - I understand completely why the site's gone... I've hardly played the sim at all since I finished my Spit IX mod, just completely burned me out on it.

I'll stick around to make my usual criticisms, though

For a long time, there was no WWII Fighters forum @ SimHQ. In fact, Judge used to be a regular @ the EAW forum. After the breakthrough occurred which allowed 3rd party mods for WW2F, the nice folks at SimHQ started the WWF forum here. Unfortunately, for a long time, the WW2F crowd has been over at the WW2 Online site(s) with only Bill_Grant attempting to hook other simmers into WW2F.

I think htat if everybody uses this as the WW2F forum, we have a chance to bring in simmers from other sims over here. Even though Bill would post the occasional screenshot of the latest masterpiece, it didn't make much of an impact on many (though he hooked me), because of the lack of posts here. In short-we are at a site that has simmers coming out the wazoo. This is a great opportunity to acquaint new people with the masterpice that WW2F has become, so I hope a lot of you will stay here for awhile.

Savage,
You said it. I got hooked again on WWII Fighters when Bill showed Hammerd's FW190D. I'd check this forum from time to time, but it wasn't until last week that I discovered the forum at WWIIF online. I'd very much like to see this forum takeoff and see WWIIF continue to grow.

hey Hemingway, are you planning to buy Third Wire: Strike fighter? If you do , then all fo these WWII guys who 'retired' WWII could move to Third Wire: Strike Fighter and add all of our WWII stuff into it. Since we could edit flight model more deep, edit weapon load, strength of aircraft and something like that. We also could make and edit everything more easlier ever terran and would have fun again. it would be interesting if we fly WWII against 60s aircraft and see how tough we are. In Korea era, these Corsair shot down MiG-15 before and we could do the same thing. Or we could fly 60s aircraft or any era aircraft. It would be addition of fun and what you think? I ain't leaving you guys and WWII guys cuz all of you guys have been so great. But since I can't fix my problem with my joystick in WWII fighter, I am moving on to Third Wire: Strike Fighter and I hope to fly with you guys in there. If you are importing all of your WWII stuff into that sim, then I would DEFINELY have alot of fun and very happy to fly with you guys! to every of you guys
