From the coming WOFF UE....
A Caudron G.4 over a new airfield layout.
Instrument lights in Breguet 14 at night,

New Vert Galand!
Probably the field I fly out of most often. Nice!

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 09/15/16 07:06 PM

Good job, guys!

The VERT GALAND drome should definitely have the 'Verts Galand farm' buildings at the distinct junction,
to make it complete. And it seems there were never many trees in that area.
If you go into GoogleStreetview, you can see them from close on.

I plan on making this very announcement to my wife when UE comes out. The resultant facial trauma should be enough to keep me out of work for at least a week. The double vision should simulate being a rookie pilot nicely.

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 09/16/16 12:26 PM

No pressure, but I do have Nov 19th through Nov 27th scheduled off as a vacation. That will be my first real vacation since November 2011 (when Skyrim came out), so if you wanted to release it during that time frame I'm just letting you know that you would have my full support. LOL.

and yes, it has actually been 5 years since I took any time off for myself. I had a lot of crap in my life that needed to be fixed and I had a laser like focus on making that happen as fast as possible. Now that the house is fixed, the debt completely gone, the book is written and published, the job income is up and I'm in a happy, healthy relationship - I'm taking some damn time off to enjoy a little bit of life! WOFF UE would just be the icing on the cake. biggrin

WOFF UE for short.


The one being bombed here is St Omer, which also shows new winter Trees for several states of Winter, including snow etc.

The answers to these and other exciting questions will be answered before OBD asks for our money.

Other questions I'm excited to find out the answer to but we will all have to wait for are:

How many airfields will be redone to be reflect a more historically accurate layout?

Will the newly redone trees - in addition to their awesome winter versions - somehow also eat fewer FPS?

How many years will I have to fly WOFF UE before I see it all or is that even possible?

That's easy. The meaning of life is made up of the 3 fundamentals of life: WOFF, Women & Wine.

Those 3 things are so integral to the meaning of life that when you are searching on the internet, everything you look for is preceded by www, because obviously WOFF, Women & Wine always come first. Everything else is secondary.

WoW, excellent screenshots (and excellent work) there!

I do have one question:
Will we have a flyable Handley-Page O/400 in WOFF UE?

(It would be cool to have one since it would give the Allies a heavy WWI bomber - remember the Germans already have the Gotha heavy bomber)

With the "insane" amount of time that you'll spend playing WOFF UE you won't even have time to mess your home or to eat so in this regard I would say that WOFF UE solves your problem biggrin

Looks like my last post was deleted in the great SimHQ crash of 2016. I thought you might enjoy some screenshots of some of the new planes and airfields of Wings Over Flanders Fields Ultimate Edition - beta. IMHO, after even only a few flight so far, I can say in short that WOFF has never had a better or brighter future than it does right now.

.

I know that one of the new features in UE is the 70 aerodromes you will be able to operate from in England instead of just the original dozen or so currently in WOFF. smile
A bit more diversity in the generic dromes there as well, and even one or two individually specific camps such as Great Yarmouth Air Station.

It's not my place to steal the devs thunder with specifics, but I will say this:

The French aren't just getting two new planes and they are done. They are going to be integrated into the war better than ever before.

The airfields have received a lot of attention to detail. Not just new airfields as Louvert pointed out and more than just the layouts of existing ones, but in some cases what types of planes you'll see deployed there and how things change over time. Some important airfields will be easily distinguishable from the rest. Coming home after a long mission - day or night - will be more gratifying. Overall, the airfields have been brought to life and it's hard to imagine just how much this adds to the immersion of WOFF UE over 3. Even the feel of landing at one has been revamped depending on varying conditions. You will probably never want to use 'Air Start' option again unless you are really pressed for time.

Installation has been streamlined and improved. I'm sure the devs will layout the details when it gets closer to release. - No, I have no idea when that will be.

There are new options in the Workshop. Some will help folks with more modest GPUs in certain conditions while others extend the functionality beyond just what is programmed into WOFF Ultimate Edition itself. It's up to the devs to let you know what that is.

Some sounds have been greatly improved, including the Allies Vickers machine gun which is much more satisfying to fire. I could never go back to the older sound after flying UE.

Just when I thought development for WOFF was winding down and coming to the end of it's life, the devs have decided not just to give it an extension but really a sort of re-birth. It's all very much an unexpected gift.
Posted By: Raine

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 10/02/16 05:33 PM

Hellshade, this is wonderful news, absolutely wonderful. The integration of Lou's British fields will be tremendous, and I'm intrigued by what you've said about the French. More than ever I'm hoping for "England" to appear as a selection when requesting transfers so that we'll be able to transfer RFC pilots to Home Establishment and enjoy more of this delicious buffet.

Thank you, devs. As anxious as I am, I hope you take all the time you need. This chapter of the continuing project is amazing and can't be rushed. Three cheers for the WOFF team and testers!!!

Yes you can take off in the pre dawn lights and lit barrels, to really add to the atmosphere. New code to allow the player's airfield to have lights was needed.

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 10/02/16 10:03 PM

Jasta 9 patrol 21 May 1917. I look behind and 3 of my flight have turned 160+ degrees and are flying back the way we came. A trail of smoke way in the distance up above shows me a Sopwith Triplane is limping back home. I wheel about and try to find if there are any others. I did find one and he was quite good. Made damn fools of at least 5 of my flight and myself until he finally had to turn and head for home. I don't know if I was able to land a single round into him. He was a better pilot in a superior plane. If I had not had so many wingmen for him to contend with, he probably would have gotten the better of me. At any rate, when he was finished toying with us he slipped away with a nice move that put him well out in front. We gave chase but were never able to make up the difference, despite all of us following suit.

Looking behind, I spotted another tripehound in tow behind everyone in my flight. We focused on the first tripe, he figured he sneak in and take some of us out before we even knew what happened. I quickly positioned myself to engage him and he was not so clever as his friend. He too had a better machine but he was not that better pilot. At least not this day. Not sure if it's an intended change or not but if you watch to the very end, it looks like OBD is now modeling broken flight harnesses. He was my enemy and a brave and noble one at that but my heart sank to see him left to that fate...

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 10/02/16 10:57 PM

Jasta 9 Patrol 23 May 1917 - We get tasked with intercepting incoming observer aircraft. A pair of Caudron G.4s(!) who quickly turned and headed back for their lines. They were too slow to react to the danger though and soon enough, we caught up with them. I made boom & zoom attacks while my wingmen closed in from directly behind, splitting their return fire between us. Again, I witnessed two men jump to their deaths from their craft. Still turns my stomach just to think about it. Man I love this sim!

WOFF UE beta. Jasta 9 Campaign

We get tasked to intercept inbound Allied Recon aircraft. We get up to altitude and head towards where they were spotted. Sure enough, we see 4 aircraft and as I look closer I can see they are Caudron G.4s flying in formation. The last engagement with G.4s went exceptionally well, so my confidence is high that once we catch them, we will make short work of them.

But WOFF UE and the war had other ideas. Every bit of what happened next is why I love this sim. Right down to the surprise ending.

\

That Spad pilot flew his plane to it's strengths: kept his speed up, maintained altitude advantage, attacked from behind and chose when to engage. Sometimes luck is better than skill and Fate is fickle.

Looks like a damn oil painting, doesn't it? That's pure WOFF Ultimate Edition. No mods. No SweetFX.



WOFF UE beta Jasta 9 24 May 1917. Second sortie of the day has me making a rare patrol behind enemy lines. I'm tilting my wings left and right as usual to see if anything is below me. Nothing. I look back at my flight and notice one of my sheep has fallen a bit behind. Wait....that's too many sheep. I turn to engage. Ironically the moment I finished dispatching him, his burning wreck falls right next to low altitude Sopwith Strutter. Had the Noop not been killed exactly when and where he was, I probably never would have seen him. Bad luck for his friend turned out to be bad luck for him too.

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 10/04/16 08:22 PM

Just arrived back at the aerodrome at Lemmes in a camion after a sightseeing tour. Unfortunately, my machine is still languishing just our side of the lines near Verdun. I was out on a general observation of the lines, trying to determine where we were, and where they were. The first thing that drew my attention was the flashes of a terrific bombardment, and came down out of the clouds to find one of our forts getting pounded. A little further off, I saw a convoy moving along the road, and went to investigate. As I drew closer, shells erupted all along the road and on the convoy. And it was at that moment that I heard the unmistakable sounds of my aircraft being hit by small arms fire from the ground. I turned for the lines, but the damage had been done, and it was all I could do to make it to our side.

I'm excited for you to fly it too and look forward to your thoughts on it. I think you will be very happy, sir.

I'd just like to add that having been given the opportunity to play even the smallest part (mere feedback and observations - really just ringside seats) in the development process of WOFF UE, I'd like to offer some very high praise to Polovski, Winding Man and AnKor even though they aren't asking for it. These guys put in a tremendous amount of work testing every little aspect that they can in order to deliver the best possible finished product. I finally have had the opportunity to witness it as it happens and it's incredibly impressive to watch their commitment to excellence in action. Bugs reported. Bugs quashed. New features added. Old features improved. Developer beta patch updates on a nearly daily basis. And as we all know from experience, it doesn't stop there. Even after the product ships, they are busy patching bugs and adding / improving features.

Of course there's no way UE could contain all of the items on the Wish List but what they are including is incredibly well thought out and implemented. Even though the WWI flight sim market is small and doesn't have any other products being actively developed anymore, these guys don't rest on their laurels. They keep pushing and expanding the limits of what's possible. We are really lucky to have them and while WOFF UE can never be all things to everybody, I wouldn't want any other group of people working to improve it than these guys.

Pol,

I just can't say how excited I am about the Caudron G.4 and Breguet 14. The G.4 looks just beautiful, guys! And if its ever been done in a WWI game in the past I missed it, so I can't wait for this one thumbsup

And the huge impact these two planes will have on the campaign...a French 2-seater campaign to run the length of the war! whoohoo

All the regulars here at the forum already know this, but for those reading this who still don't own WOFF, it is the most comprehensive WWI combat flight simulator ever created, and on the same breadth and depth as IL-2 1946, but of course with modern graphics (it has many "looks like a photograph or movie-clip" moments). WOFF 3 has better looking weather than FSX, P3D, or X-Plane IMO. WOFF 3 weather and atmospheric conditions are simply gorgeous.

If you buy one combat flight simulator in your life, WOFF 3 or the upcoming WOFF UE is the one to have. WOFF combines atmosphere, depth, breadth, and an engrossing career light years beyond anything that has ever preceded it.

WOFF stands alone with IL-2 1946 as the pinnacle of WWI and WWII combat flight simulators. It is that good, and better!

French Breguet 14 career. Swarmed by multiple Albs I manage to fight them off and they all finally give up and head home. No kills for me but at least I lived.







Until out of nowhere, this guy shows up, killing my gunner and wounding me in his first burst. I lived but it reminded me to never get comfortable and feel safe...even on a low level flight back to the airfield. I was hospitalized for a few days but I feel like I let my back seat gunner down. If I hadn't gotten too confident in my escape, I would have noticed I had company and been able to try and throw off his aim.

Do not mind. If not, I have prepared mod that can change that behaviour. I just did not solve an installation method yet, because JSGME version can overwrite any previous modding of "effects.xml" file (e.g. tracer mods, ...). To avoid this problem, I will have to either code it as a separate executable file or make several versions of JSGME mods including any other effects mods.

They are indeed fiddling with it. I don't know what the final outcome will be but some of the beta patches to it have been nice improvements, IMHO. Of course if you happen to hit the fuel tank and it goes up, 20 liters of aviation fuel exploding is going to have a devastating effect on a mostly wooden structure but yes, I believe they are working on reducing the frequency of all 4 wings being shed.

Wait - with a burning desire.
And just its release can put out the fire!

Cause youre the sim that I have waited for,
Youre the U E OBD fans were created for.

I'm no expert at WWI damage. But I'm fairly sure that when you hit a gas tank with a round, the contents of the tank doesn't explode.

There's an old saying in aviation, "Fuel burns, fumes explode". It's why wings on fire don't generally explode; they just burn until the structure fails.

Now a hot round, especially an incendiary round, could ignite the fumes in a non-full gas tank with pretty devastating effect. But most of the gas itself won't explode, or even burn until it is "spread out" so that it has access to oxygen.

I suspect (though I don't know) that most flamers were holed tanks that covered the wood and doped fabric structure of the aircraft with a layer of fuel and were then ignited...by something. After that the plane went up like a torch.

Sorry for the aside, but just something to consider. smile

Really looking forward to this!

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 10/08/16 02:24 AM

We met some Brisfits. Started high and I landed quite a few rounds into him but his rear gunner was giving as good as he got. I gotta hand it to the pilot too because he threw his craft all over the sky trying to shake me off him. Many times he did but I was able to re-gain my position with a well placed barrel roll or high yo-yo. The fight kept losing altitude until we were dog fighting at tree top level near a church. Just as I put the killing rounds into his machine and he lost control, pitching into a row of trees, his gunner shredded my upper right wing. I managed to limp back to the airfield in the background.

The rear gunner is what shredded my wings. That wasn't dive damage. It was too many bullet rounds to the wing that did it. You will notice how I was at tree top level in the last bunch of pics. The rear gunner hit me with a final burst just before he crashed. No dive damage at all.

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 10/08/16 03:11 PM

Encounters with RNAS-1 in tripes and then RNAS-2 in DH4s. Yes, I shot off his center right wing and it turned out to be fatal for him. You don't have to clip all of their wings. Sometimes just one does the trick.






Posted By: Hellshade

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 10/08/16 04:42 PM

Early war still looks fantastic too. After my wingman downed the Aviatik, a pair of EIIs(?) pounced us. I eventually forced his prop to stop and he dead stick landed behind his lines. Look at how alive the scenery looks with the new shaders too. Awesome stuff.

I would like to make an important point about the new UE shaders though. I have mentioned the nice FPS improvement the new shaders provide and they do, but I should also point out that while they will give you a boost they aren't going to turn a 3 year old GPU into SLI Titan level performance. You will probably notice the added FPS, especially around airfields, but I wish to be careful and honest about not setting the wrong expectation. The last thing I want is someone thinking if they buy WOFF UE they will be able to run everything maxed at 8x time compression with an aging CPU/GPU at 60 FPS. It's most certainly an improvement, but I don't wish to overstate by how much. As with everything PC related, your mileage may vary depending on your hardware and software configuration.

Some early war campaign fun. Spotted white Archie puffs well below us on a behind friendly lines patrol. Once we got low enough to investigate we spotted a trio of EIIs. After that engagement we went back up to altitude and found a pair of Aviatiks scouting around. We chased them all the way back to behind their lines before caught up to them and engaged. What a great sim.

Posted By: Hellshade

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 10/08/16 06:10 PM

Scenery looks amazing with the varied trees and the colors and hues providing a wonderful feeling of depth. I think I killed the pilot and took out the wing on the Aviatik. Either way, I'm sure neither of them survived the spiral intro the ground from that altitude.

Affirmative. All of my screenshots are without mods or SweetFX sir.

Early morning patrol. Emergency landing at another airfield after being wounded and controls damaged. The field itself had apparently suffered bomb damage recently.

UE really is a joy to behold, and it runs amazingly well even with everything max'd out. AnKor's new shaders are magic.

The lighting and new shaders are just incredible in the upcoming release. I love the dreary, rainy look of the French countryside in late March, 1917.

Thanks but can you explain please what reducement on CPU load you have now running the UE.
Posted By: RAF_Louvert

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 10/09/16 07:46 PM

dutch, I couldn't tell you for sure how much the load on the CPU has been reduced in UE compared to the current WOFF as I've never benchmarked that figure in WOFF. I believe AnKor could give you a better idea about that. It was noted earlier that his newest shaders have shifted some of the work that was done in the past by the CPU over to the GPU but I couldn't tell you how much of a shift that is.

Il hopefully find out soon enough from the Devs, my only wonder is if UE is another addon or a completely new title that then makes WOFF V1 2 and 3 redundant?

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 10/10/16 10:35 PM

Excuse me, but why do I give a diddly-bleep if WOFF is on steam? I've got a steam account and use it for CivV, but I don't understand why it would be of any help with WOFF. I've had no issues with WOFF through the years, works for me as is. I thought it was said once and for all that if WOFF needs CFS3 there is no way to make it available through steam. But what do I know, I'm sure Hellshade is right, absolutely confirm that there's no confirmation.
Yeh, great new shots Hellshade, looks to me that environmentally WOFF has again taken another step upwards. The atmosphere is becoming more and more spectacular, that and new aircraft just keep WOFF way above other sims. I will always be intrigued just because of the simplicity of the planes, you're just flying, no tech stuff to get in the way. I know lots of us are old f***s, I saw those photos of you guys at the air show, and I think we can just appreciate it since most of our lives weren't so tech-ed up. Well, that's just me I guess. I'll take a restored '63 Corvette over a 2016 anyday.
I always want to close every post that I make with how much the devs rock! Great work fellas!

Im hoping in 2 versions JimBob. An all in one installer (for people new and or are more comfortable with an all in one installer) and a Add-On for people like me who have all the addons now.
OBD are a fantastic company the Devs are the best in the business but...Some people including myself have already paid a lot of money for WOFF V1 2 and 3 + the skin pack (before it was free) when you addon the Fokker Scourge,Balance of Power and Motley crew it comes to quite a bit. Also add to the fact that the is extremely poor against the $ post Brexit and us folks in blighty are at the moment getting a rough deal. I would like to add that i dont regret spending what i already have in this great sim that OBD have blessed us with. Anyway sorry to go OT id love some more WOFF UE shots guys. cheers

There are some people that do because it's easier to acquire the game. I know this is a niche of a niche but this Avangate reseller has limited number of payment options. Gog / steam are modern distribution platforms with modern payment options.
Not everyone pays with credit card via internet and gog / steam allows to pay without them.
There are plenty of people who would gladly pay and buy this game, but this Avangate only allows credit card.

Also there is other factor that your download links will not dissapear in case you will loose your dvd.
If this game had more payment options available, i'm sure more people would buy it.

It's just about making life easier for everybody, everyone wins, devs because more people buy the game and people because it's easier to get it.

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 10/11/16 08:12 AM

You have to treat JimBobb like a troll. He have been given the same answer multiple times about why WOFF will not be Steam, but he keeps coming back and stirring the pot, so obviously he really does not want to hear the truth about M$ and the base CFS3 game royalties.
Posted By: JimBobb

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 10/11/16 08:20 AM

Well there are other modern resellers like

www.bmtmicro.com


for example, here probably you would not need cfs3 royalties

Hey everyone, I am sorry that I am not posting any more screenshots or videos for WOFF UE. I would love to however I have started 12 hour shifts at my job (which I knew would be coming) so I don't get the stick time in that I would like. That is why I posted as many as I could before.

Let me just say though that WOFF UE is a wonderful sim and the devs and the beta team have worked very hard to bring it to life. Hopefully the wait is not too much longer. Chances are that you all will be flying WOFF UE soon and I won't be because I'm still working 12 hour shifts. I look forward to your thoughts once you finally have the finished product on your hard drives.

The devs will be releasing all of the details sometime soon. They have already made public about the two new French Two seaters: Breguet 14 and the Caudron G.4 which you can find pics of in this thread. There's a lot of nice things coming but we just have to wait until they release the official details of what is included.

That is genuinely jaw dropping Lou! I've started a new campaign in Alsace and I thought the vistas there were breathtaking, but this is taking it to yet another level.

And to think, all with the CFS3 engine which is, how old now? Absolutely astonishing!

Soppy,

Well enough lately. Started a new job and making good money.
Now to just find the time to fly!

On the bright side, i'll finally be able to afford the investment for rudder pedals/throttle setup.
Then I just need the industrial fan mounted behind my monitor so when I lean out with Track IR i'll get the full wind feel in my face!

I do wonder where the old crew is. Be nice to see them re-surface in the WOFF / ROF area.
BTW: If you're interested, We're doing a FiF tourney in ROF and could always use some more flyers!
Cheers!

I'm glad to hear that work is treating you well. I can relate on the time crunch - RL has me pretty pinched for time as well!

I'd love to join the FiF tourney but sadly, I haven't had ROF installed on my system in quite some time and I've long since lost my login info for the planes I bought. duh

But with UE out now, I'm tempted to jump into some of the centenary and RiR/DiD campaigns going - perhaps we can jump in on one of those!

Looking forward to seeing your thoughts on the new release!

Cheers! cheers

I don't think I have ever hit anything with those, and man I try to get in really close before letting fly. And in sharing with another thread running, did you get confirmation on that balloon? Steve

Gentlemen, I thank you all for the praise. Most of it should be directed towards OBD. They've created a masterpiece.
SteveW, actually LePrieur rockets are my favorite. I miss the least with them. Just get close to the balloon, like on the screenies and aim above the gasbag. (Well, the picture isn't the best example - I missed with most of them.) And yes, the balloon was confirmed, yet the mission was deemed a failure. Go figure.

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 10/26/16 10:00 PM

Even a modest system like mine - running an nVidia GTX 745, I'm getting impressively high frame rates and gorgeous graphics. UE is absolutely stunning!







This last image - which looks like a placid evening spent in a farmer's field was a very very close call for my 1918 "throw away" pilot (who has already lasted 6 hours of flight time and bagged two kills to his credit). As our flight was about to engage a flight of French Strutters escorted by N27's, my HUD showed "system failure." I quickly checked my throttle and fired my guns - and with both working I turned to attack the French Nieuport ahead of me. But, as he turned and dived below and I followed, my engine sputtered to a halt, leaving my prop to windmill in vain. Suddenly a shot of panic went through my brain as I realized that I had an angry enemy plane an no where to land. Thankfully, having hit the French machine a few times, he elected to take me up on gifting him a broken plane and he ran for home!

That left me with trying to figure out where to stuff an OAW Albatros DIII a good 30KM from anywhere. I managed to find a field but, as I touched down, I could make out a fence in my path. With no power I yanked back on the stick and porpoised the plane in a hop over it! And amazingly, I cleared! But then, I was running out of speed, but not quickly enough. I dug in the rudder and slammed the controls hard left and kicked the plane into a skid without tipping over. Came to a neat 180 just before the fence... and saved a screenshot for posterity!

Probably you are using VSnyc like most do. Caps it at 60.
Without it I get 100+ but I haven't checked with UE though I expect the same.

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 10/27/16 01:16 AM

You get higher FPS, but you also get screen tears (pick your poison). The only way out of that problem is either nVidia G-Sync or AMD Freesync.

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 10/27/16 02:06 AM

I've been told that the human eye can only see 20 some odd FPS so isn't 60 a wonderful thing and should we be concerned about achieving anything past that or does it have something more to do with room or surplus for more air action and more planes in the sky without lag potential ??
Posted By: Panama Red

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 10/27/16 02:15 AM

24 FPS with movies is completely different than 24 FPS in a game.

Movies use "motion blur" so it looks smooth from frame to frame, video games do not have that ability because they draw the screen one frame at a time. When you read reports of people testing games at 60 FPS versus the same game at 120 FPS, the people pick the 120 FPS as far smoother than the 60 FPS every time.

I know, because I can tell the difference between a game at 60 FPS or when I set the refresh rate on my monitor to 144 Hz since faster is always smoother.
Posted By: Banjoman

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 10/27/16 02:16 AM

I'm with you, I've been perfectly happy with 60 fps, but I was just wondering what the difference would be if I made any changes.
Posted By: CaptSopwith

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 10/27/16 02:31 AM

Hi Banjoman,

So the reason I'm hitting 100fps - which is unusual - is from using Fast vcync on my nVidia card. It basically locks the screen from tearing, but does so with little to no hit on the GPU. I'm using a mid-range GTX 745 that shipped with my Dell XPS system. With vsync on I get some stutters or pauses in game play. I personally think it's due to my ancient monitor which runs maxed out at 1680 x 1070. The refresh rate on the monitor is 59.8 mhz - so whenever my FPS dips below 60 to say 58, I get a micro-pause in play. So with Fast vcync, I can build more of a buffer and when it dips, I don't see any visible pause. Just one of the little quirks I've had to iron out. UE is much smoother though, but being paranoid, I haven't dared touch the settings from what was working before.

I average between 45-65 fps most of the time, though! I don't want you to think I have some sort of magic trick working over here!

Cheers!

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 10/27/16 03:07 AM

Thanks, I haven't heard of Fast VSync. I'll research and see if my card has that ability.
Posted By: Panama Red

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 10/27/16 08:15 AM

Fastsync is NVidia's new "trick" for people who like to play on high FPS (no V-sync), but hate the tearing. It really does not help if your game plays below 60 FPS, which is what G-sync is used for.

Fastsync is software induced, versus G-sync which requires a special monitor with a chip built in.

Yes, Fastsync is in the drivers, but I'm not sure how far back NVidia has pushed this for older video cards.

The only way you can tell for sure is load the latest NVidia drivers and see if it is an option for your particular card.

Balderdash.

"Motion blur" is not a method, technique, or system used to achieve or accomplish anything. It's actually a (generally undesired) side effect of capturing moving objects in still images (or a sequence of 'frames'):

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motion_blur

Yes, it does contribute to fooling your eyes in a way, but that doesn't mean it's intentional, or even desireable. They don't do it to smooth anything, it happens regardless of what they do.

In short, it is an effect, not a cause.

Many types of technology have been used to overcome motion blur. Asus' website says "NVIDIA Ultra Low Motion Blur (ULMB) technology decreases motion blur..." (https://www.asus.com/support/faq/1014609).

It makes no sense at all that anyone would spend time to develop a technology to reduce or eliminate something, if it were planned, intended, or even desirable in the first place.

It should be evident, then, that motion blur is not an intentional act of anyone to smooth anything. It wasn't developed, and it isn't used, to smooth moving images. It happens because movement is absolutely analog, while video frame captures are not.

In my case, it isn't about upping my FPS - on a 60hz monitor, I'm hard pressed to tell the difference as the refresh rate cancels out any gain. For me, it was about removing the hiccups I would get when the FPS would dip from 60 to 58 or 59 fps. I would get a brief hang, especially when turning my head in TrackIR. Fastsync seems to remove 99.9% of the issue. Subsequently, I've chalked up the occasional pause as the sim likely loading something in the distance that I can't see.

I'll stay with you in not turning this into a shop talk rofl

The consensus that I've seen in PC gaming circles is that 100+ FPS will look smoother on your monitor, but you won't really get the full benefit until you move to a higher MHz monitor. One of the good videos I've seen that breaks this down is here



As for me? I'm just happy to have WOFF UE running smoothly on my system! My Dell cost me just over $1,000 and I'm using an eight year old monitor that's extremely limited in resolution, so for now, the 745 card wedged in my XPS system will do just fine. I can always grab a 1060 card as a graduation present or, perhaps more appropriately, a "hey, I finally landed a job!" gift... biggrin

lol!... yes, I find it very difficult with this aircraft.
I set them as enemy against the early Alb DI, and had a hell of a time taking them on as the AI were flinging them all over the place...

This impressed me, so I decided to fly them myself... I have flown them several times now, and I'm getting away with it by the skin of my teeth each time.
I don't know what magic the AI has got when you see them in the DH-5, but it's a different kettle of fish when you fly them yourself.
That staggered wing gives you great forward vision, but that essential area above and behind (the one place where you need good visibility is nil!)...

I consider myself a pretty good pilot, and I'm quite confident in most aircraft that I fly, but not so in the DH-5.
I know they had problems in real life, and that they were relegated to ground attack roles (where they shined, and were good for that role) but as a pure scout aircraft, you really are taking your life in your hands when you take on even early enemy aircraft of the same time period...
Posted By: DukeIronHand

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 10/28/16 09:42 AM

Yes I always think the AI has an "advantage" in flying various aircraft (especially the quirky ones) as their flight coordination is "perfect" and they are always aware of the flight envelope, etc.

As an aside I think my graphic issue may have been my Nvidia Workshop settings seem to have reset to Default for whatever reason. And I do have access to "Fast" VSnyc.

They will often release new drivers if there is some big new AAA game that just got released as well. The update in those cases is usually just about better support for the new game. Not much else is normally impacted.

Boistrancourt, Summer 1917

Thanks to Panama Red for his continuing unpaid work in modding WOFF for the sole benefit of the fans, Winder and OBD for the original field, a dozen others for the idea and models - sorry I don't know who you all are, Thomas Edison for the invention of electricity, and finally the countries of Europe for making the war possible thereby giving us something to simulate in the peace and quiet of our own chairs.

Panama Red, your efforts on adding in Geezer's ground crew figures is first-rate and brings yet another level to this already amazing sim. Well done, and also another big shout out to Geezer for allowing his work to be used in WOFF! May I suggest though that you post your work in a different thread as showing this mod in the WOFF UE screenshots thread seems to be a bit confusing as folks are wondering what is stock and what isn't.

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 10/31/16 02:14 PM

Whilst it's good to see modded screenshots, I aree with Lou posting in here confuses people as to what is in WOFF UE.

For example Droglant is in WOFF UE but maybe they will think they need a mod to see it etc? Please post in a separate thread PR maybe with subject "MOD:xxxxxx" and if you can mention which bits are new or stock it may help.

Fastsync is software induced, versus G-sync which requires a special monitor with a chip built in.



So if you have a G-sync monitor there's no advantage to setting V-sync to "fast" instead of just "on"?
Posted By: Panama Red

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 11/08/16 06:42 PM

Correct. In fact IIRC, there was a post over on the NVidia forms that stated that you set G-sync for FPS below 60 and the Fastsync for FPS above 60 and you never have any tearing and minimum stuttering since both can be used at the same time.
Posted By: hoongadoonga

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 11/08/16 07:03 PM

Thanks PR, but your "correct" confuses me. You're saying that if I have G-sync there is an advantage to using fast V-sync instead of "regular" V-sync, right?
Posted By: Panama Red

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 11/08/16 09:07 PM

Fast-sync allows your game to go as fast as the GPU can "pump out" FPS WITHOUT the tearing like the old V-sync off did. I have a 144 Hz monitor and the fastest I could get before Fast-sync came out was 144 FPS with V-sync on, now I can get 170+ FPS in WOFF UE with Fast-sync and no tearing. biggrin

G-sync's main benefit is low FPS and Fast-sync benefit is with high FPS, so both can be used at the same time without conflicting with each other.
Posted By: hoongadoonga

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 11/08/16 11:50 PM

Thanks again PR, but please bear with me as this technical stuff is over my head. I too have a 144 Hz monitor.

1. Are you saying that fast V-sync will have an effect only above 144 fps?

2. In other words, if I set regional activity to very heavy and get 80 fps at normal V-sync changing to fast V-sync won't bump me up to 90 fps?

3. And using fast V-sync won't allow me to do faster time compression?
Posted By: Panama Red

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 11/09/16 12:32 AM

Fast-sync will not make you go any faster FPS wise, but it will allow you to go faster FPS wise, and notice the difference in the wording.

What I am saying is that V-sync ON will only allow you (in your and my case) to max out at 144 FPS. With Fast-sync, this barrier is removed and you can get higher than 144 FPS in the game. If you have ever tried V-sync OFF, you will notice that your game will run as fast as your GPU can pump out FPS, but at the price of constant screen tearing. With Fast-sync, your GPU will again pump out the FPS as fast as it can, but WITHOUT the screen tearing now.

Your Fast-sync kicks in only above what ever you set your monitor Hz at, i.e. if you monitor is set at 60 Hz, Fast-sync kicks in at 61 FPS, if you set your Hz at 144 Hz, then Fast-sync kicks in at 145 FPS.

Fast-sync has absolutely nothing to do with time compression, that is all CPU calculations, not GPU rendering.

Harry is still madly in love with the pup and doing the King's good work.








Adam had spent a couple of weeks prowling around in the soup, then finally found a couple of Halbs:








Then a Roland found him.



Luckily he walked away from this one.


On the other side Ingvar, my one pilot to survive the Eindecker long enough to graduate had finally found some trade after his own fishing expedition in the soup:









Tragically, after attacking this FEE...





He collided with his wingman and fell to his death.

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 11/21/16 10:24 PM

I'm in! Picked up the UE today! I decided that since the Germans had never got much love from me (mostly due to my inability to come up with cool names and them not having the N17 or SE5a), I would first enlist with Karl Spieler in the tail end of 1915:

It was, amazingly, a jaunt out over the lines with me in charge on my first flight! I was so nervous, I couldn't even remember my observer's name, let alone my wingman's. Of course, having the gun muzzle so close to my ear did not ease my concerns...

Well, as luck would have it, I made it back without any enemy contact. In fact, the ground forces were so busy pounding each other, they never even sent any ordinance our way. I feel fairly confident that future sorties will not be so placid...

Wallace Pickleworth training at Sutton's Farm ... so many balloons away into the distance smile





on your monitors these may just appear black, but on mine wonderful shades of blues and grays with the moonlight and searchers glinting here and there through clouds, off leading wing edges etc!



again, maybe hard to see on your monitors but a hauntingly wonderful shot through cloud with wing and wingman and sun beyond

In the final pic, I think the Roland CII pilot managed to land it mere seconds before he died. I took the screenshot while his smoking plane filled with holes was still rolling to a stop, but he was slumped over the controls dead. Observer lived though. I guess it was his lucky day.

The gunner doesn't look dead, but my wingman was also peppering him and I think his attentions are elsewhere.

Those things are tanks!

Finally the weather has cleared in 1916.

The long rainy period was not without its successes however...and failures. Adam Aames, my long surviving Laf Esc pilot was lost to a midair collision with a wingman while attempting to stay with a flight of BEs.

Enter Bailey Brubaker:



and he's off to a good start with two Halb kills on his first mission, touch wood.






Jurgen got to the squadron at the beginning of the dud weather, so he has had a slower start but has gotten in a few shots here and there:

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 01/04/17 03:56 AM

Amazing shot, Adger; catching the sun just clearing the trees and ebbing the shadows on that zep.

I had an interesting day myself.

I no sooner got my new paint job air-born when we got jumped by a flight of Hab's. We were chasing a couple of Rolands when they came in on us, and of course, my trusty Wingman left me to deal with the three of them.

I was quickly running out of sky when I pulled a maneuver I like to call Panic-attack and somehow ended up turning the tables.

First guy looked like he was going to dive under and away but I guess didn't realize my suicidal tendencies.



Could not resist as this is what I was seeing.



Rolled all the way up and out to port and there was number two. I guess he thought I'd gone down too because he didn't make a move. That burst that I'm firing must have hit him because he spun and went straight down.



Circled around with the third (was Heinrich Bussing) spitting lead at each other until I managed to cripple him up, get in behind him and empty what I had left into his back-side. A second later his wings came off, and down he went.

That smoking spot on the deck? Yeah, that's the first guy, his wingman. I figured they'd want to be buried together.


I think that lady luck was sitting my wingtip today...and I hear she can be fickled.


Love the N-17, and agree, love this game.

Against 12 aces Fokker DVII, you might be at a very slight disadvantage, but the Caudron is a good recon plane, able to defend itself until mid 1916.

He has gotten a few shots off, but has been denied much credit for his works.



Ah, well. He has the pride in knowing that he is serving the Fatherland.



Bailey has been doing better.


He had one of those defining WOFF moments yesterday, where he went from this:








to this:



in about two seconds.


That was a looooong glide home,

I'll say. That first shot was well described.

On the other side, dawn patrol. I didn't even intend to take these. I was actually looking back in the first one to see my flight taking off. Graphics are amazing.





Posted By: Blackard

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 01/13/17 05:49 AM

But I landed.

Speaking of damage models. The lower wings were from combat, too man Gs etc., but the tail section got me. Not only the crumpled port side elevator, but the control surface basically detached, hanging on only only be the canvas (not to mention the shredded rudder). I spun out as I came to a stop and that is what I saw when I pulled back to look.

I did that coming in. Was fighting a roll and could not maintain sufficient altitude to get over those trees. Went through almost sideways and felt the jolt as my tail hit. The starboard aileron was actually flopping up and down in the breeze as I sat there.

Only thing that would have made it better is if I had done the final layer to texture and age it a bit, but still pretty amazing.

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 01/13/17 07:08 AM

Well, I'm not sure it's quite so pretty as that nice blue Nieuport, but I bagged a couple E.III's on my last patrol, and I took a couple screenshots of one of 'em, since he landed so obligingly in basically one piece.


Just after the other guy landed.


Zoomed in, took this screenshot, then decided to try and land next to him to get a closer one.


As I flew past, I saw that there were a lot of trees and a fence there, so I broke off my approach to land. Still came pretty close, though, so I paused to get a couple more screenshots. Shows more damage on the model than I usually get a chance to see - shooting at Eindeckers, the easiest target seems to be the pilot sticking out the top, so I tend to normally just see craters.


Zoomed in, I saw the pilot slumped over in his cockpit - he must've been good! His engine stopped in the air, so he made a dead-stick landing just before dying.

Hi Deacon.

I'm looking to copy some of the Screen Shots here, and I'd really like to copy this one. I'm doing this thing where, as we build our new house, and my new office (and man-cave), I'm going to be doing the walls with different themes that I enjoy (collections over the years).

Above my desk some of my old Marine Corps stuff; the TV, some sports and golf memorabilia (Fan of Ben Hogan, have his style, and have some of his memorabilia). Over my little work-out area my collection of Norman Rockwell's. At my gaming rig (on the other corner), I've decided to go with a collection of WWI screen shots of the different planes and scenes.

I'm a fan of illustration, water colors, pen and ink, oils more then photos. This game has risen to that level, and this SS is really Amazing.

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 01/18/17 12:20 AM

Very cool! It's really the color palette and the shaders that give you those great Stokes-like tones.

The first one particularly has that nice brush work feel. I use Photoscape, but the effect is too overdone at any but the lowest setting. I like how the rain is more muted in this second series as well.

Nice work Fullofit!
Posted By: Fullofit

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 01/18/17 01:28 AM

Deacon211, there is a bunch of things happening there. All done with filters. That soft brush filter is aptly called "oilify". It removes a lot of detail, but gives you the softness in return. I suppose the canvas texture also makes it look like a real painting, although typically you don't see it on real paintings unless you come really close.

Posted By: Fullofit

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 01/19/17 10:27 AM

Banjoman, I've played with the cartoon filter as well. It's an art to find the right amount of black to be used in the process, otherwise it starts to look like an engraving. It's funny the program can't find the horizon, that seems to be missing in the second shot. Maybe in WOTR they'll figure out how to increase the distance and reduce that fog.
Posted By: Banjoman

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 01/19/17 03:05 PM

Yeah, I didn't make any adjustments, just a straight up conversion. I think I'll start using those filters on my screenshots, though probably not the cartoon filter.

Hey Banjoman, I believe it is the process the filter uses to make the image look like a painting - it softens the edges. Perfect example are the clouds if you compare to original the original is much sharper. Same applies to any detail like the crosses. If it is too sharp you will lose the impression of a painting. It's the same with CGI in movies, if they don't do any post-processing it is easy to recognize it's computer generated. Something that helps with our images is higher resolution. You can apply the filter to HD image and it'll still keep more detail. Then it can be down-sampled to the max image size this website is able to host, which is 1600 pixels in horizontal.
Compare the 2 images below. Both had exactly same filters applied with same settings, but the first one had it applied to higher res. image. Second had its filters applied after rescaling image to 1600 pixels. Hopefully you can pick up more detail on the first image, even though the edges are still blurred to get the right effect.

Note: Images are modified from original.

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 01/21/17 02:45 AM

Hellshade, I can't get a single shininess setting to work with all the planes. Seems they all have different levels. On top of that, some parts are much more glossy than others. Makes sense - fabric will be less shiny than metal. I like the level in your pic, not too shiny. I keep mine at default and some parts look chrome. See the cowling in this pic:

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 01/21/17 11:54 AM

The differences in shine could be due to the effect of the in-game shaders??
Posted By: Fullofit

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 01/21/17 01:59 PM

Sandbagger, I'm not sure what you mean. Are there different shaders for each aircraft, that's why I'm getting different glossiness levels with the same Workshops settings?
Posted By: Burning_Beard

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 01/21/17 03:53 PM

I tried just the opposite, I reduced the Gloss down to 3 and bumped the Environment Reflections all the way to 9. I can now see how difficult it would be to find a camouflaged plane against the ground clutter. If I had not been using a Target Lock I would lose them every time.

Just a guess - I could be wrong.
It could be the way the different aircraft skins were created by the skinners. Each has his own software preference and techniques, so maybe the various aircraft types react differently with the game shaders.
In the earlier aircraft skins, some has 'lighting' added to replicate what the shaders now do. Could be it's those types of skins that vary to other later skins that don't have this 'lighting' added.

You can see this 'lighting' if you scan through the skins using IfanView. Check the Strutters (as that's the one in your shot) and you can see the 'lighting' texture on the side of the engine cowl.

Does a particular aircraft type vary to another type with the same settings?

Like I say it's a guess and could be a red herring.

Now there is a old school skinner speaking from experience salute
We added 'occlusion' to areas close to structural joints, such as wings to fuselage, tailplane/fin to fuselage etc. This was done by adding a darker 'shadow' at the join areas. Again something now redundant with the advent of the shaders.

Remember? The stripe on my upper wing, on the diagonal, pixel by pixel, and you could not use black for shadows as it was invisible. You had to go with the darkest gray you could get to work. Doing my plane took hours. I think I still have the files stashed away in my old xp machine somewhere.

I remember, much later, modding in "Full Canvas Jacket", which really made the game look great (and skinning that much harder). I think that's the only reason that I don't have the Steam Version loaded up (well, that and this game). Can't mod it into their version.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, however a side by side comparison of 2002 CFS3 and 2016 WOFF UE shows they aren't even remotely the same. That said, RoF and WOFF UE both have, IMHO, their own areas where they each shine. I guess it all just depends on what you are looking for. There are things in RoF I wish were in WOFF UE and things in UE I wish were in RoF. Glad we can have both.

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 02/02/17 12:31 AM

If you calibrate your monitor correctly to start with, you do not need SweetFX.
Posted By: Blackard

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 02/02/17 02:02 AM

So Sweet does not really enhance? or does it, just not to the extreme difference with UE?

As far as the monitor, I just got a new one. Did a calibration. Game looks great, but it looks just a bit different in than that picture (the water actually).

Might be a few things. I have my saturation turned down just a bit. in game I had environmental reflections and glossiness turned down to about half (which would account for the reflections off the waves?). Just read that 40LM also reduces the shore foam.

Going to play around with them but was curious about Sweet also. Adger's shots always look amazing.

I'd vote ignorance. Not in a nasty way, but in a lack of knowledge way. People often just grab a soundbite and run with it rather then study, or understand it. It's how the media works to control public opinion, or how special interest portray "studies" that favor their agenda or point of view (very few actually delve into the study).

The individual simply looked at the date that CF3 originated and made a giant leap of assumption based on limited data. If the individual did just a bit of research, they'd clearly understand that this game is not replicating 2002 graphics as it stands at this point.

There is having one's point of view, or preference, then there is the art of besmirching based upon said reference or point of view. Seems the individual extrapolated his preference out just a bit.

I've run both sims myself. My preference is this one, but ROF is also an extremely good looking game.

Most of the mods on here are brilliant mate,it might be Olhams Rivers mod that gives it a bit of extra shine regarding the water pal.
4Loms mod is brilliant,so is the models mod,il take a pic of what im using ..and the order ive installed and ive had zero problems mate.Ankors brilliant Enhanced cockpit view mod is a must its brilliant.

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 02/03/17 04:43 AM

I'm 67yo and did lots of plastic modeling in my life. My last phase I was in my 30's--40's and was doing them with my youngest son and we did some pretty nice ones, aircraft and armor. My favorite thing of all those hours was researching and doing camouflage. Now in WWII the Italian, some Japanese, and some German in North Africa had the most interesting stuff, fun to paint. But in WWI a different story. The French and British didn't do much, pretty boring. The Germans were nice, kinda went through a few phases. Some pretty straight forward camo at first, then the 'anti-camo', the crazy colors and designs, and then the lozenges designs. I remember when I first saw the lozenge I kept wondering how it would work visually, were you less noticeable with that scheme when viewed from above or what? So the USAS then actually tried a pretty workable paint scheme, broad areas of paint that were used later in WWII by US, British, maybe French too. So a nice concept. I like this photo of an N28 with landscape below. SW
Posted By: Panama Red

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 02/03/17 09:21 AM

Remember, the Americans used what came out of the French factories in WW1, and this was the late war French camo scheme for all their planes (look at the French and American SPADS in WOFF and you will see the same camo on those planes too).

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 02/03/17 11:47 AM

PR, true enough, although the last time I flew Fr. SPADs they had the one color skin. I don't remember the four color and the use of black though. Anyway I liked the image because it does give that 'deceptive' look. SW

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 02/05/17 04:30 AM

PR, just noticed an image from Fullofit on the WOFF Art Thread of a French SPAD similar to this US Nieuport. Didn't look like it had camo paint on the fuselage, I'll check into it some more. I'm not a 'skinner' so I could easily be missing out. It is a nice paint design for WWI though. SW
Posted By: Sandbagger

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 02/05/17 10:28 AM

Hi Steve,
Early French aircraft were mainly clear doped linen (CDL) or aluminium silver. Later some aircraft types were camouflaged by the different manufacturers, as with the early Spad V.II and later Spad V.III.
Each manufacturer chose slight differences to the standard camouflage style, roundels and even the style and positioning of the aircrafts serials numbers.
Spad's were produced primarily by Bernard, Bleriot, Kellner and Spad and each style, where applicable, is reflected in the Spad skins in WOFF.

Hi Steve,
Yes - The N.28's upper surfaces were the factory standard pattern of Chestnut Brown, Dark and Light Green and Beige. The right upper wing 'foot print' and right upper horizontal stabilizer patch were lamp black.
When passed to the American units, they embellished them with various colour schemes on the engine cowl, wings and on a few, with posters of the time pasted onto the right upper wing surfaces (see the 27th, 94th, 95th, 147th Squadrons).

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 02/05/17 06:02 PM

SB, thanks. I'm familiar with the 'individual' work on the US aircraft, what I know less about is the look of the 1918 French aircraft. I have pretty much only flown OFF/WOFF as US in '18. I'm a 1916-1917 pilot. So that's helpful to know. Be that as it may, again it is a very nice camo. SW

Well if you are interested in flying American in 1916 with colourful planes, I recommend you the Escadrille Lafayette



Posted By: SteveW

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 02/06/17 08:19 PM

Thanks, AJ. I get that, the first squadrons/escadrilles that I flew when I first got OFF in 2010 was the Laf. Esc. I have always been interested in them and I think one of the very first books I read on WWI was 'Falcons of France' by Charles Nordhoff and James Norman Hall. Being from the US I've read much about them and the Flying Tigers in WWII. I like the idea of volunteering, and of course there was the 'adventure'. So yeh, I like the Laf Esc a lot and I usually go until I run into SPADs. And what I meant was that I don't really care for 1918 much, but will fly for US 'cause I like the Nieuport 28. Sandbagger mentioned the upper wing images that the US pilots were painting on their aircraft, posters, etc. In 'Falcons of France' they asked Nordhoff what he wanted painted there, he said he hadn't really given it any thought, but decided on a palm tree because of the familial connections to the South Pacific. I guess they thought it was kinda 'different', but he kept it. Of course the two of them went on to write my first and favorite 'high seas' adventures, the 'Bounty' trilogy, and I think he lived his life there. Anyway thanks Actionjoe I appreciate the thought.

You are very lucky to have survived the encounter with the Tripehounds! I would have stalled and spun out of there and onto the deck ASAP and to heck with flying mates! Live to fly another day and make amends, right? lol

Man.
I know I have said it a dozen times over the years but I will say it again...this game is the prettiest damn thing on a monitor screen. Every time I come here, and fly myself - with everything being different every time due to weather, light, etc - I always come away with a bit of awe.

Rick, Yes, that is a cropped shot (about 2/3rds) of the whole.
Running at 7780 x 1440 (Bezel adjusted) resolution @ 85Hz

I was worried how my 980ti would hold up driving three monitors, but WOFF is only pushing it to about 80%.
It is quite stunning to have such a wide vista.
WOFF is is a true gem!

Thanks Macklroy.

Lederhosen;

That was typical in real life and is simulated in the sim. Hispano-Suiza engine, particularly the geared-output H-S 8B-powered early versions suffered such failures regularly up until 1918. Just cross your fingers and maintain altitude when over the line and hopefully you will make it back!!

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 04/12/17 01:27 PM

These screenshots guys... are just jaw dropping!

Makes me think we should start an OFF Retrospective thread to compare where we were with Phase 1 and WOFF UE. Hard to fathom that it's the same engine buried underneath all of that work.

Here are some from my most recent flights. Been spending some quality time with the Fokker EI which is a handful.

Fantastic shots! Another form of art I say. One of my new Hun pilots on a sunny morning. This is also the reason I do not take many outside view screenshots. Almost back to base, everything is cool, "Oh, that would make a nice shot." Look around. All safe. Then while adjusting for just the right angle my machine is splattered from a Pup!

I noticed these the other night. Was letting the computer fly a mission while I fiddled with the view system
and tried to get some pics and I came across this. I guess my AI pilot was wounded in the dogfight and the
windscreen showed the blood spatter. He made it back and landed so it must have been merely a flesh
wound. biggrin Little details like this are what set WOFF_UE apart from the rest in my experience.

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 05/03/17 03:35 PM

So last night I was flying in my 1918 German campaign - with Bruno Stachel in Jasta 34b. The campaign gives you a very good taste of how unpleasant it must have been to be a German flier at the end of the war.

During the mission, we engaged a flight of French Nieuport 27's - which seemed to hound us for several missions. As we attacked, they dove for the deck and as I rolled my Pfalz over to chase him through the clouds, I had one heck of a flashback.

The first attachment is a screenshot I snapped of the intro video to Red Baron II/3D from back in the day. I've probably seen this intro 10,000 times by now.

[Linked Image]

And the second is a snap I grabbed as we descended through the clouds. I distinctly remember playing RB back in 1998 - when I was 15 years old - and thinking "man, how cool would it be if games looked this real one day?"

[Linked Image]

Well, it looks like that day has come - and then some - as the screenshot of my mission looks better than the cinematics from back in the day!

Thanks Gentlemen. In this one I manage to perform a high diving attack on a trio of BE2cs. The first pass against the flight leader was remarkably lucky. I think the only reason that my wings didn't rip off was because I was in a DII with II style wing struts instead of the V shaped ones. I won'tr be doing anything of the sort if I live to fly a DIII.

Great first pass on that unlucky BE2c! Those rear gunners were not very active were they?

My engine stopped while still behind enemy lines on my way out. Gliding down with no hope of making it even to no man's land let alone my side, I looked for a long straight road to land on. No kidding, there was an enemy observation balloon near the road and i put his craft into a dive to pick up some speed and made a pass at it. I got smoke! So I pulled up with my diving speed, circled back for a second gliding pass at the balloon and blew it up! I then managed to still safely land on the road. I wish I hadn't stopped recording, as I have no proof to offer of the event. It was pretty amazing though.

Pups over the target with a head to head engagement. I followed one down low but lost him right before the kill. Soon enough more Pups descended to my altitude and the battle was back on again.

Later, on the way back after the main battle I spotted a lone pup racing for home, almost to his side of the lines. Alas for him, it was not to be.

Posted By: Hellshade

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 06/17/17 03:36 PM

I spotted tiny specs of white far below us and decide to lead the flight down to investigate. At first I could only find one but once I got down to altitude, I found the rest quite quickly. What followed was an epic battle for survival against some well trained French pilots, WOFF UE is incredible! Thanks Devs and Modders!



First time I have ever encountered twin gun Sopwith Triplanes in the campaign. The extra gun weight really did seem to impact their performance.




Spas 7s in the area where we were assigned to patrol for balloon cover. Did my best to energy fight them which is a tricky business.

I engage a low flying flight of DH5s(?) and my wingmen follow me down....except they don't engage! Evidently they had way too much confidence in me that I could fight off 5 or 6 of them alone. Eventually they figure it out but not before things are incredibly dire for me.



and from an earlier mission where Camel pilots ripped me up pretty good and kept coming after me. Scary crap!

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 06/18/17 12:48 AM

Finally assigned the new machines. Fokker DR1s. The first flight out we ran across a trio of Spads and managed some victories, but we quickly found the limitations of these new crates. They can neither dive with a Spad nor keep up with its speed unless it has been damaged. We will have our work cut out for us now.



Nevermind. The very next mission they pulled the DR1s away and gave me back my old DV Uprated. Really?!? lol
Posted By: Hellshade

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 06/18/17 02:38 AM

Towards the end I was racing to get to a wingman being chased by a Spad. I was closing ground quickly, but not quick enough. The Alb pulled up and the Spad flew right into him, sending both crates earthward in balls of fire
.


A great scrap with Brisfits! One near miss collision was so close I thought for sure he was going to plow right into my tail on his was down.

Finally back in the DR1 again. I am getting used to her, but she's certainly a different beast than the Alb DVa.

Nevermind. The very next mission they pulled the DR1s away and gave me back my old DV Uprated. Really?!? lol

Really great to see you flying and posting videos again, Hellshade! I do enjoy viewing them. I also greatly admire your flying and shooting skills. The only skill I seem to have mastered is my skill at smashing into the ground!

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 06/18/17 04:20 PM

Thanks guys. I just try not to die. lol

So we are flying along in a shiny new DR1s and the flight suddenly starts acting funny. I look around and eventually I see it, a lone Allied craft diving in at us while his wing man flies off back towards his own lines. "What a fool", I thought. This will be an easy kill. Not so! This DH4 pilot was incredible in how he handled his kite, especially against DR1s. He threw his crate all over the sky and gave me hell trying to get a bead on him.

The final report showed that none of us actually shot him down. Evidently when he swooped down low to throw off his antagonists, his damaged craft did not respond as well as it should have and it looked like he skipped off the ground. The bounce was too much and turned him into a rolling ball of fire across the landscape. Even for this, I cannot fault him, for in my pursuit of him I miscalculated how much stress my DR1s wings could handle in a dive and I did a fair amount of damage to my own crate. Whoever he was, we all drank a toast to his skill and bravery once we returned back to base.

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 06/18/17 04:58 PM

We tangled with a flight of DH5s in a bright, clear sky. Though it was squadron vs squadron, there was a point where I was left alone in the middle of a hornets nest, DH5s in every direction and all focused on me. Must be a little of what Werner Voss felt like on that fateful day. I did manage to draw smoke from my first target on the very first head on pass of the engagement!

For Just a Moment, I Felt Like Werner Voss

OvS has been hard at work at a new project and he has been kind enough to share an advanced copy of it with me. It seems he has red-done or created from scratch a huge inventory of high resolution OAW DIII and Early DIII skins! They look just fantastic. I will be showcasing a few but hopefully they will be able to be released to the public sometime soon! In any case, I noticed that I couldn't fly the DIII for crap before, but with the new skins I have been turned into a killing machine!! (Okay, before was the DIII and this is the OAW DIII, but whatever. I still credit OvS for inspiring me to fly better with his incredible high resolution paint jobs.) Truly he is an artist. Thanks for all that you do for the community James!

An example of a high resolution Ace skin. Beautiful work, OvS!



And another OAW Ace skin

Hi Gents!

Here's a few from the last few weeks. My RFC 19 pilot was lucky to get his SPAD back home after an airfield attack mission deep behind enemy lines. To add insult to injury, we were attacked by an angry flight of Albatros fighters as we were trying to escape. Still, any landing you walk away from and all that...

And a few others from the unfriendly skies. Hope you enjoy!

Hiya Hellshade! Hope you're doing well mate!

That's a tough question to answer, too! It's hard to compare WOFF with UE as I didn't play WOFF 3 for very long before making the jump to UE so I can best compare it back to OFF. It just feels like the complete package - from the opening screen until you (hopefully) set back down on your field after a sortie, it feels like a fully realized sim from end to end.

I think if I absolutely had to pick a feature? I'd have to say its the AI. After playing flight sims since... when was it, 1993 or so? It's easy to still have an edge over the computer and learn their routines. But I still cannot anticipate what an enemy aircraft is going to do in WOFF UE and the results of all of the AI working together in the sky really paints a convincing picture that you are watching real pilots fight it out. Some run, some get scared, others get the upper hand and engage. It's amazing to watch a dogfight unfold in a way that really feels organic and believable.

I went back and fired up Red Baron off of my USB hard drive and wow... have we come a long way. Even after not touching it for a few years now, I could still predict where the AI was going and then lead shoot him from at least 300 feet back! Not the case in UE! And heaven help you when they get behind you - I've been downed at least a dozen times in UE from an enemy I didn't see who blasted my plane to bits from my 6 o'clock with one lethal pass. You really don't get a second chance up there!

And the sim still surprises - as you probably saw with my question about guns taking damage! You never know what you're going to find, and that's what brings me back again and again.

Good evening gents!

Here's a few screenshots from around the Front during this evening's missions. The sunrise during my 1918 campaign was particularly jaw dropping! As an aside I have to say that I'm noticing smoother gameplay with the Windows 10 Creators Update. FPS aren't any higher, but they are more consistent and I'm seeing less pauses and stutters as I go. *knocks on wood!* mycomputer

Hiya fellas... just a heads-up... please remember to download the new OAW D.III skin pack and load it in. You'll see a lot more skins and those that are there are overwritten with brand new versions... anything that is not and looks old... you can delete.

@Robert Wiggins... that Jasta 18 Paul Turck is actually a screw-up on my part from over 10 years ago.. it was supposed to be Harald Auffarth, while Ernst Wilhelm Turck (correct name) actually flies a black banded OAW. There is no such pilot as Paul Turck... I've learned a lot in 10+ years...lol.

That sounds like one heck of a rig, Pol! Makes sense when you are developing the sim the rest of enjoy. I can't imagine what a screen resolution like that looks like. My system runs at 1680x1050!

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 12/23/17 07:26 PM

So during my Christmas "break" from work, I decided to hop back into my old favorite plane, the Sopwith "Tripehound", and start a campaign. First mission out and it was truly an incredible experience. Only WOFF UE brings the war so much to life for me. Some missions are long and dull. Nothing happens. This wasn't one of those missions. On a side note, kudos to everyone who had a hand in creating the scenery in WOFF UE, including modders like Buckeye Bob and his amazing Cloud Mod.

"Tripehound" Mission Part I



And literally 30 seconds after that video ended and I thought I was just going to return to base, this happened.

"Tripehound" Mission Part II

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 12/23/17 09:15 PM

Hellshade, I agree with you on the Tripe. It's my favorite too. Agile, fast, and stable.


Posted By: BuckeyeBob

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 12/23/17 10:41 PM

As George Takei might say, "Oh my!"

While the Tripes can be deadly, they are also very delicate. Rotten luck there, Hellshade.

Thanks for the shout-out for the cloud mod. I am glad that you are enjoying it. Also, don't forget Robert's wonderful airfield mod. winkngrin

BTW, PanamaRed also deserves a lot of the credit -- he not only helped out on both of these mods, but was also the inspiration for both. I bet he has helped with other mods and modders, as well.

Also, of course, JJJ65's Mission Editor!

And all the other mods and modders!

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 12/26/17 12:54 AM

Squadron Leader turned quickly towards a pair of Hun DFWs, but two of our own collided in the sudden direction change, sending one of them to a fiery death before we even got close. We hadn't even gotten to the Huns yet.




On patrol, we get jumped from above by some Alb DIIs. My V struts are creaking just a bit too often for my comfort. If the Huns don't kill me, probably they will.

Posted By: Hellshade

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 12/26/17 03:30 AM

So I am flying escort for the two seaters and I notice that all the N17 scouts are below them, not above. Kinda strange, so I climb like hell to at least be a single plane for top cover. Sure enough while over occupied France, a flight of Albs drops down on me from even higher altitude. The good news is that I distracted them from the two seaters I was protecting. The bad news was they all swarmed me! I'm not sure how many of them there were. Maybe five? Finally, at least one of my wingmen joined to help and an incredible dogfight ensued while my recon flight made good their escape.

Posted By: Hellshade

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 12/26/17 03:32 AM

Jumped by Bosch while escorting a recon flight. We stayed behind to keep Jerry occupied while they continued their mission.




Having handled the Albs, I try to catch up with my Recon flight. Instead, I come across a pair of Strutters being swarmed by Albs. It looked like a shark feeding frenzy, so I flew in hoping to give the Strutters some desperately needed relief.

Many thanks again to the terrific modders who made this possible. And of course, the developer of WOFF UE.

Both Ketten of Jasta 30 chased eight FE2Bs back over their lines. After sending one down I looked around the sky and it was raining FEs. There were four going down, trailing smoke at the same time. Unfortunately I could only get two of them in the shot.

I like the whole Nieuport line.
I have way too many favorite planes which, in turn, probably makes me have way too many careers going.
Can’t think of any planes in the WOFF plane set that I don’t really like.
Guess that’s a tough problem to have I suppose.

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 03/22/18 02:58 PM

Okay so I'm flying in formation with my friends in Jasta 2 and I see some specs at my 7 o'clock. As we are still behind our lines, I break formation and go to investigate. Can't have any nasty Allied two seaters reporting back troop locations. Sure enough, flying straight towards me were a pair of recon aircraft, eager to get back to their side and tell their commanders of all they had seen. I have to say, the Gods of War with with me in my rather brazen attacks on them. Not long after, I rejoined my flight and we ran afoul of some Nieuports. One thing I have to say about OBD is they know how to make it feel like total chaos and desperation up in the sky. And one minute, all hell is breaking loose. The next, the skies are completely clear. I love this sim.

Damn EII turns like a train and then can suddenly flip on you like a bird with only one wing if you aren't careful. It's all slow motion combat until things get real scary low to the ground.

The problem is that, while the moon location accurately tracks in an arc across the sky, and the phase and position timing changes appropriately with the calendar, the graphic is always displayed as it was drawn (left-right, up-down). To look the way is should in the real world the graphic would need to slowly rotate clockwise as it tracks in an arc across the sky. As it is now it looks correct only when it is at the top of it's arc, and is +/-90 degrees off at either end of the arc.

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 04/17/18 02:33 PM

MajorMagee, thanks for the info! If the phase and location is correct, it shouldn't be too difficult to rotate the image towards the sun in the shader code. Maybe I'll get to it someday.

SERIOUSLY DETERMINED OR DESPERATE GERMAN AVIATIK PILOT!

Multiple strafing runs against a solitary, parked Aviatik sitting on the end of the runway and I managed to blow off BOTH lower wings. Certain he's done for, I turn back only to see the crazy German pilot starting to taxi his plane down the runway for takeoff! He's either really determined or really desperate to get into the air.

In any case, I can't have it so I circle around behind him and strafe him again. He never gets off the ground, of course, and slams into a copse of trees just past the end of his runway, causing his already disabled plane to catch fire and take more damage. One final strafe past and I kill the pilot with a few well placed rounds. I don't want anyone that determined to ever get up in the air against me! I salute him though. He certainly had the courage of a fighter pilot.

Just when you think you've seen everything in this sim....

Watching your latest video, it came to my mind that sometimes I wonder how is it that AI planes manage to make such tremendous dives without losing their wings. When enemy two-seaters make 4000 feet semi vertical dives only to recover when above the trees and I see my flight mates following them almost on the vertical I envy their structural integrity management.

My limited understanding of this phenomenon is that some of the modders have looked into how the AI can do this and they either haven't discovered why it happens or they are unable to change it so the AI flies by the same structural limitations that are imposed upon the player. If there was ever a way to get the AI to respond to the structural limits of their own aircraft, I think it would make the dogfights even more interesting because they would literally keep alitude for significantly longer periods of time. There would be "more dogfight and less dive" in many encounters. My guess - which probably has no bearing on reality at all - is that the AI coding doesn't have a way to recognize when their aircraft are being stressed, so their planes are just made immune to g-forces rather than have numerous dogfights end with the enemy ripping their own lower wings off during extended dives. While it might be interesting to see once in awhile, as I am sure it did happen in real life, it would get old pretty fast to see it happen with such frequency.

If someone can mod the AI to detect the stress levels of the wings OR limit how far each particular type of craft will dive (Spads much longer than N11s, for example) before switching to another tactic, it might more closely simulate how pilots would handle their craft during air combat. Is either one of those a possibility? (I will ask in the mods section)


Posted By: BuckeyeBob

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 05/17/18 07:19 PM

Not to throw too much cold water on this, Hellshade, but I believe that JJJ has looked extensively at this issue and has concluded that the AI operates by a different set of rules than the human player, at least in regard to wing stress. My suspicion is that this is a leftover from CFS3 code. Since CFS3 was originally designed as a WWII simulator, it didn't include any variables relating to wing collapse due to overspeed, since that problem in plane design had mostly been solved by the time of WWII.

Rex Hannover and OBD might be able to create such a variable, but then they would have to figure out how to train the AI to pay attention to it without appearing too robot-like. Given the variety of aircraft (Albs and Nieuports on the one hand and Spads on the other), plus variety of pilot skills and experience, I suspect this might be quite difficult to do. I entirely sympathize with your point, however. It is disappointing to see the AI overuse the "power-dive" escape move, particularly since we can't follow them. Maybe the AI is a lot smarter than we give them credit!
Posted By: Hellshade

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 05/17/18 07:30 PM

BB,

I highly suspected that it was a leftover relic of the underlying WWII code that wouldn't require that feature. That said, since the players planes can break their wings, OBD did somehow manage to introduce that possibility into the code. Point certainly taken about exact calculations for how much wing stress each plane can take before breaking, though theoretically they already figured that out when they assigned the values to the players planes.

Here's a different idea though:

I wonder if a shortcut would be not to introduce gforce damage to the AI planes at all, but rather lump all planes into one of perhaps 3 categories of dive capability and then simply limit how long (or how much altitude it can lose) before it pulls out whenever the AI specifically does the steep dive manuever. Low quality planes dive for the least amount of time before pulling up into another move, moderate for a bit longer and then planes like Spads could dive much longer and farther. The AI would then pull out of the dive based on the assigned value (or before hitting the ground) before wing damage would likely have occured, simulating (very roughly) the extent that the plane could handle that type of dive. Of course it wouldn't be perfect, but it would be more realistic than an AI controlled EIII or N11 power diving a few thousand feet and pulling out to escape the player who has no hope of folllowing. Bonus would be to include skill in the determination, where AI ACE pilots could dive a bit farther (due to their skill), moderate would use the default values and Novice AI pilots wouldn't be able to dive as far for fear of ripping their wings off and not really knowing the limitations of their craft. Again - not perfect - but still moving the ball forward a bit.

What do you think?

Not until you get out and cut the serial number out of the fuselage. You then have to go over to your C.O. and throw the fabric at his feet. THEN you say, "confirmed!"

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 06/21/18 02:58 PM

They are indeed very impressive images.

That said, though I could be wrong, I'm thinking there is some kind of post-capture processing applied...I'm not sure these are "straight" screen shots. Again, I could be wrong. To me, the foreground being super-sharp focused and the background being out of focus, isn't something the sim does unaided - that I know of, anyhow.

It is a great effect, though and yes, reminds me of diorama photos I saw as a kid that got me interested in building models, too.

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 06/21/18 03:43 PM

Yes, it looks like masking out the airplane and applying a blur tool to the background in post process. Reshade has some effects that can do that live in-game, but it requires z sorting information that our old game engine simply does not provide in the proper format to be used.

Yes, that's what it seems like to me. Wasn't there, at some point, a thread that was created as a place for that sort of 'artistic embellishment'? I'm being lazy, but didn't see it right off.

To me, it would seem a bit misleading if someone wound up with the impression the sim can do that "out of the box".

There was a WOFF UE Art thread and it had some amazing stuff in it. Part of why I am so excited about the possibility of DX11 for WOTR. IF AnKor succeeds and IF it gets somehow brought back into WOFF UE, It's possible there could be some nice visual upgrades beyond just the performance. That's a lot of IFs though, so I'm hoping for it but not counting on it.

I don't know what an enb is so I guess the answer is no. These are regular screenshots with layered gaussian blur and adjusted brightness and contrast in Gimp.

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 07/10/18 11:53 PM

So I'm returning home in my Alb DI and I get a Sopwith Pup on my tail. No worries, he's far enough back and it appears that I can out run him. A few minutes later, a flight of noops high above spots me and one of them comes down to have a look, also dropping in tow behind me.

Once I get well into my territory over some small town, I decide the Pup is far enough back that I can turn to face him (and the Noop) in time to greet him with a head on pass and hopefully do some damage, which I manage to do. The plan was to get enough damage on the Pup that he gets knocked out of the fight and then it's just me and the French plane. Despite being called by the girlfriend for dinner mid fight (you can see the short pause) I managed to knock the Pup out of the fight. To my surprise, the Frenchmen dropped low (despite not taking a single hit) and tried to run back to home. Bad move for him. Really, really love this sim. I looked around but never saw where the pup went after he dropped out of view. I have no idea if he was able to slink back home at tree top level and I missed him or if he crashed.

Used to work fine, but it's been ages since I've had the free time to play and just a few days ago when I fired up WOFF it kept crashing on the 'contact' screen. Through process of elimination I removed a few mods, and that was the culprit. Should have posted or PM'd someone but forgot, sorry -

Representative pics below of the WOFFue effects pack, also Buckeye Bob's optional clouds pack, activated in WOFFue in WineSkin on a Mac. Pleased to report that the supported mods list has now been updated under the relevant post in the stickies section - all the ones listed there run great. And with AnKor's blue triangle elimination tweaks implemented (as also outlined in the WOFFue on a Mac post), framerate doesn't drop much below 16-17 fps even in the thick of the action.

Happy flying,

First day off in 19 days! To relax I went back to flying an old "Dead is Dead" campaign starting from Sept 1915 on the German side. Realistic encounter settings, no labels. Finally, after 30 hours of flying time, I get my first encounter. Flying in a crappy little Fokker E I I get chased by a Nieuport back over my own home airfield. Outmatched in aircraft quality but at least well within my lines, I can't believe how the combat played out. This. This is why I love WOFF UE.

Finally got upgraded from my old EI to a shiny new EIII with its superior firepower but the Allies are upgrading too and starting to fly their N11s in force. I am closing in on 100 flying hours for Michael Strauss but I also cannot be a coward and run from the Entente. These are the kinds of missions that add unbelievable stress when flying for hours instead of kills.

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 11/01/18 06:16 AM

Despite the gloomy weather today, HMA Happy has managed to keep the spirits up in the lead of B Flight. The enemy came out in force, but we fought back - the pair of BE2s under our escort didn't make it (one got shot down, the other rammed by an Albatros), but our own RNAS Detached Sqdn pilots did well, claiming 7 enemy fighters for no losses (only me getting a little shaken up by a close flak burst, and my wingman lightly wounded). The war goes on...

Yeah, I didn't enjoy my last Halberstadt career very much - they're a fine airplane to fly, but combat is another question. Underpowered is their middle name!

On my Tripe at the moment, the main problem I seem to be having with them is that I can't blip my engine enough not to overshoot them constantly when trying to finish them off biggrin

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 11/06/18 04:18 AM

Fortunately, I have yet to meet a Tripe. I can’t handle a well flown N17. But if I can survive another fortnight, there’s an Albatros DIII on the way.
Posted By: CCIP

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 11/06/18 08:59 PM

Nieups can be deadly, wouldn't underestimate them - they can really get you in a maneuver fight (this is true even in the Albatros) and are light enough to outclimb you. But usually in a Halberstadt, I could at least dive away from them pretty effectively. No such luck with Pups and especially Triplanes, though - and the Tripe can even out-turn and out-climb the Nieuports easily, while still having heaps more power than any of the German fighters of the time!
Posted By: Nowi

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 11/08/18 09:49 PM

I tried out diving the 17s. I know from my concurrent French campaign that they can’t do more than about 225km without risking damage. But it’s hard to push a Halberstadt past 225 even with full throttle, short of going nearly vertical. The ac is soooooo draggy! And the problem when you do go vertical is then what? You’re on the hard deck and he’s still above you, spiraling down. To escape you need to dive and extend.

Dax Bonnassie into the attack! L'Homme Protectif has completed 240 sorties, and now has 71 aerial victories. Monsieur Mercure has grown to love Le Scooter--the Nieuport, now a 23. It's only 1 mph slower than a SPAD VII, and far more maneuverable. He started his career in the Vosges is September 1915. It's now April 1917, so he's survived eighteen months at the front. I did resurrect him three times; all three were deaths caused by collisions with friendly machines while flying under AI control at 12x.

This is by far my most successful WOFF career.

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 11/18/18 11:09 PM

I've been flying Caudron G4 careers now that I feel more comfortable with how the flight model and damage model works. I've flow five sorties at 6.5 hours total and filed three claims. the aggravating thing is that the first two victims had multiple witnesses but fell in the No Man's Land or crashed in German territory. Finally, on my third attempt at combat, I managed to get a confirmed victory that fell behind French lines AND had witnesses.

the Aviatik can be very dangerous. I've found that a quick burst of machine gun fire from one of them can rip off half of the Caudron's upper wing and is an almost instant death sentence. so I've avoided using the stern gunner position to make attacks! I use the Caudron's competitive speed to stalk enemy planes in the blind spot beneath their six o'clock position. with the first two battles they lasted roughly ten minutes to fifteen minutes each.

the third victim only took about eight minutes.

now I tend to fly the machine into a good position and jump into the observer's station WITHOUT activating the auto-pilot. the auto-pilot tends to want to fly AWAY from the enemy. the auto-level flight feature tends to be too rigid, and I don't have as long to fire. it also tends to pitch sharply when setting up so I avoid it. worse, yet, it also means you're a sitting duck if that Aviatik wants to take evasive action.

I'm also a big fan of the early war campaign. I was having fun dropping bombs on a German locomotive the other day. I like the way this Caudron career is going... hopefully I won't get killed and the "Bad Luck" will be for the Germans that cross my path! I've found a fun new custom skin idea that I think works well with Escadrille 13. I figured it would be fun to put "13" in black and add a black cat as well. now that I realize just how dainty and vulnerable the Caudron is... I'm going to try and see how long I can make this one last. the original skin is by the OBD team. all I did was add a drawing of a cat I made years ago and give it a name.

I am finally finding some time to fly WOFF UE again. It is partially my busy life's fault, but also partially WOTRs fault. OBD has done a really good job with WOTR and I have been enjoying it a lot at the expense of WOFF UE flight time. Here are a few new pics of many I took last night of a new Campaign mission in the Felixstowe area. I am hoping to make a pictorial AAR soon to share. This is just a tease. winkngrin

I'm going to be trying out a Pfalz D.IIIa career with Jasta 20. I'll have a mediocre airplane as part of a terrible squadron... where I'll mostly be facing up against aircraft better than mine. after a fiery Sopwith Pup career (both literally and figuratively) I think it might be interesting to play a pilot with the opposite approach (be very, VERY careful. avoid fights if you can help it)

the aircraft skin shown here is based on the excellent work of the OBD team.

I liked the balance of terrain, buildings, and the locomotive with the aircraft in this snapshot.

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 03/26/19 08:30 PM

if you have a skinning program like Gimp you can also use a smudge tool to hide it a little if you need the area where the text is. If you look on some of my pictures you will see spots that have been smudged. The MG gunners in the ground shot above have some lighter colored areas where they are sitting. That is the yellow target view circle that I smudged. Anyone know how to take a target view screenshot that doesn't have the yellow circle on it?

Glad your enjoying the ground shots Ace Med. Sometimes I spend more time trying to get shots than I do flying, but its lots of fun.

Back again. read about zipping a folder. Looks simple I'll see about the Dropbox app as well, don't know which I'll go with. I'll experiment. May be a week or two before I can get the skins just the way I want them so I don't embarrass myself.

Jerbear, I drew those profiles for the Jasta 23b book. If you want the actual images I drew to use for skins, which would be a higher quality than scans from the book, just let me know.

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 06/05/19 09:50 PM

Hello gents',

Been tweaking the SweetFX settings file over the last few days (from the Bucksnort JSGME SweetFX mod) for my WOFFue install, and thought I'd post a few screenies here to refresh the thread - framerates are holding up well even with SweetFX enabled and I'm getting better sharpness and greener grass. Might zip up the tweak and post it over on the CombatAce downloads section for those interested in loading greener pastures in WOFFue. (Note to those running AMD cards - turn off all terrain and cloud shadows if using SweetFX...this gets rid of flickering. It's fine to leave aircraft shadows on however. The default AnKor shaders are a bit more friendly towards cloud/terrain shadows on AMD cards than SweetFX, but I'd rather sacrifice some shadows for the greater crispness that the SweetFX mod gives me.)

Happy flying,
Von S smile2

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 06/05/19 10:45 PM

Nice photos gentlemen smile

I think the thing with external enhancers (SweetFx, Reshade, etc) is that adjustments are very subjective. What I like about Reshade is being able to make adjustments and tweaks in-game on the fly - and seeing immediately their impact. Gosh though, it can be quite absorbing and hard to let go though, LOL. Spent hours tweaking both IL2-1946 and WOFF UE with Reshade. Anyway, here is a shot or two of my attempt to get quite realistic color, lighting, and effects using Reshade - but again, it is all a matter of individual perception. Hope they show up as I never have uploaded in here before...

Thanks for sharing your great screenshots guys. smile

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 06/05/19 11:00 PM

Very nice pics. there Redwolf, and subtle lighting and shadow effects. I tried getting ReShade to run but it gives me CTDs (specifically the CFS3.exe crashes) in WOFFue, so I went with the JSGME-friendly version of SweetFX instead. The CTDs may be specific in my case since I'm in BootCamp on a Mac Pro (2013), with the AMD Fire Pro card (two of them, crossfired) - so those not running an AMD card may have more luck with ReShade. Anyway, those interested in loading the SweetFX tweaks will be able to find a link to the package near the bottom of my long post under the "WOFFue on a Mac" thread - the link should be up in a day or two once CombatAce approves the file. (A couple of "before" and "after" pics with SweetFX included below, with fall colors this time.)

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 06/06/19 11:52 PM

Vons, Love your FM tweaks on many of the planes, but a bit much saturation in your Sweet Fx settings for me. Each to his own. It is funny but after the last update Sweet Fx gives me a CTD and I had to remove it.
Here are some pics from a recent night mission. I also posted some in the main WOFF UE screenshots thread in the Screenshots & Video thread .

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 06/07/19 05:36 AM

Hello Blade, glad you're enjoying the FM tweaks. In terms of SweetFX, I'm still running ver. 4.18 of WOFFue (once I get patched up to 4.23 I will report back if there are any problems with SweetFX). ReShade I never could get running with WOFFue.

Been testing my SweetFX settings further and while they still have the green pasture saturated look, for those interested, subtle changes can be included if you modify the numbers under "Bloom Settings" in the fx settings file to read, for example, as:

#define BloomThreshold 36.00
#define BloomPower 2.546
#define BloomWidth 0.0342

Those values decrease bloom effects a bit more (by about 10 or 15%) than in the settings file included with my current tweaks package.

Also possible is to disable bloom effects entirely by entering 0 instead of 1 for the "#define USE_BLOOM" entry under "Choose effects" in the settings file.

Representative pics below of more subtle bloom (first two pics), and no bloom (last two pics). Obviously results will vary from setup to setup and monitor to monitor - as always, tweak to taste.

My slightly saturated tweaks are largely an experiment to get greener grass in WOFFue and extra sharpness/detail - I can now spot those sneaky fences from half a mile away. biggrin

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 06/07/19 04:54 PM

That is looking better, VonS

I am in the opposite situation - Sweetfx once upon a time worked for me, but hasn't for a long while and it borks my game install. But now that I have Reshade going, there is no going back anyway (I like it a lot better). I use a modified/tweaked HDR setting with it instead of bloom. Don't remember if HDR was available with Sweetfx.

Happy Hunting all. smile

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 06/07/19 08:02 PM

v4.18 works but the shaders in patch v4.22+ have been altered, so if you change then its bye bye sweetFX.
I'm using Reshade too. Its fine. Just got to figure out the color adjustments for me.

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 06/18/19 06:37 AM

Lovely pics gents' - been tinkering further with my WOFFue install (ver. 4.18) in BootCamp on the Mac Pro and pleased to report that cloud density and cloud shadow values in the relevant d3d8 ini files can be turned on - flickering is caused only if terrain shadows are set to 1 (or higher) with SweetFX enabled, and if set to 2 (or higher) with the standard AnKor shaders in place. I therefore recommend if running WOFFue on a Mac with an AMD card or two, to set terrain shadows to 0, but toggle cloud density and scale to taste (I run mine at a value of 3 and haven't noticed any major hits on frame rates; the other wonderful thing about enabling cloud density and cloud shadows is that ground shadows are then present for aircraft, not only shadows on the aircraft itself). Also been tweaking my settings file further for SweetFX to give only about 10% bloom, with values for the bloom section of:

#define BloomThreshold 29.00
#define BloomPower 2.846
#define BloomWidth 0.0382

Representative pics below, of scattered and cloudier weather. By the way, the Se5 (early a variant?) is lovely to fly - I need to explore the type further, haven't had much stick time in it until now.

Happy flyng all,

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 06/21/19 04:07 AM

Great pics gents' - keep em' coming. Pleased to report that I've simplified the SweetFX tweaks of the Bucksnort FX mod by uploading a "subtle bloom" and "no bloom" settings file, for convenience (the link can be found by navigating to the bottom of my long post under the WOFFue on a Mac thread). Should work well for those running WOFFue specifically on a Mac, and with AMD cards - also on Windows rigs with AMD. Eventually I will test with the ver. 4.23 patch of WOFFue to see if SweetFX runs well on it too (might have to fiddle with the settings files and/or d3d8 ini files, since ReShade is a no-go on my rig). Will post relevant results here once I set up a newer ver. of WOFFue (although I have to admit that I like the "deadly trees and fences" ver. 4.18 - very scary if your engine conks out in the middle of nowhere yep). Obligatory screenies below with the "subtle bloom" settings file in place.

Ver. 4.24 also works fine on the Mac as indicated in my other post here on the WOFF threads - with no terrain shadow flickering even at max settings on the AMD card, although SweetFX and ReShade are now a no-go on the Mac. Possibly SweetFX will become compatible again in the future. In the meantime I've got two WOFF installs running so that I can enjoy shadows and crisp textures, depending on taste.

Been trying out an Escadrille N 75 campaign. Started in August 1916 and went Captain to get my mitts on a Noop 17. Feels a bit ridiculous to be fighting nothing but Eindeckers in that thing. So far the fronts been nasty and wet for both missions. First one bagged me an Eindecker over german lines and the second one I didn't see even one boche. Was pretty spooky when our RecoNoop 12s engine went out on the way home and he just kind of glided it in. Pretty glorious flying with some post-rock ambiance in the background.

Uhhh...wow!
You probably explained it earlier but I can’t find it.
What are we doing to get such graphics?
Posted By: VonS

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 06/27/19 07:16 AM

@Adger, glad you're liking the screenies, yours are always top-notch, desktop wallpaper quality
@all, wonderful shots everyone, keep them coming
@Duke, we are doing the following to get such crisp graphics:

1. running ver. 4.18 of WOFFue
2. running the Bucksnort SweetFX mod (JSGME-enabled)
3. running my "subtle bloom" sweetfx settings file in the Bucksnort mod, available in the bottom post, after the pictures, at:

https://combatace.com/forums/topic/93424-sweetfx-tweak-for-woffue-for-bucksnort-sweetfx-package/

I also recommend grabbing my other files here, before loading the subtle bloom file from the link above:

https://combatace.com/files/file/17037-sweetfx-tweak-for-woffue-for-bucksnort-sweetfx-package/

4. running the following settings in the compositetexturebudgets.xml file located under OBDWW1/terrains, as per my WOFFue on a Mac thread:

<Budgets PatchPixelDim="512" MinPatchDimUseThumb="4096">

for all of the different "Rings" level entries in compositetexturebudgets.xml, use the following for crisper graphics when in low-alt dogfights or for sightseeing:

<Ring PatchWorldDim="32768" RingDim="3" MinMaskRadius="65536"/>
<Ring PatchWorldDim="16384" RingDim="4" MinMaskRadius="53248"/>
<Ring PatchWorldDim="8192" RingDim="4" MinMaskRadius="40960"/>
<Ring PatchWorldDim="4096" RingDim="4" MinMaskRadius="24576"/>
<Ring PatchWorldDim="2048" RingDim="6" MinMaskRadius="12288"/>
<Ring PatchWorldDim="1024" RingDim="6" MinMaskRadius="6144"/>
<Ring PatchWorldDim="512" RingDim="6" MinMaskRadius="4096"/>
<Ring PatchWorldDim="256" RingDim="8" MinMaskRadius="1536"/>
<Ring PatchWorldDim="128" RingDim="8" MinMaskRadius="768"/>
<Ring PatchWorldDim="64" RingDim="8" MinMaskRadius="384"/>
<Ring PatchWorldDim="32" RingDim="8" MinMaskRadius="128" DetailTileCount="6"/>

5. running the "LOD Bias" value for the video card at -1 instead of the default of 0

Those who are running ReShade on ver. 4.24 of WOFFue might be able to reduplicate such settings too - ReShade is a no-go on my Mac unfortunately - but I'm hoping that SweetFX will eventually become compatible with the newer shaders in the latest WOFFue updates.

Representative screenies below (of ver. 4.18 with the tweaks listed in this post).

Have you tried reshade? - you can do some really good natural lighting, HDR, and color tweaks with it - it might work for you (if sweet fx doesn't (that was my situation - sweet fx doesn't work, but reshade does - though reshade is the more intensive tweak, go figure).

Great shots lads...

.@ Fenin as Redwolf mentions Reshade works flawlessly with WOFF and WOTR..I use just 4 settings and I don't get any Fps
drops ,the 4 I use are Clarity..Technicolor..Curves and Lift gamma gain. It's incredibly easy to set up..it basically gives you a tutorial at the start.

I made a few posts about it so if you want to try and you get stuck il try help the best I can pal.

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 06/28/19 04:37 PM

Got reshade to work with minimal hassle. Thanks for suggesting it. Messed around with a bunch of shaders and got an image I think I like. I think the only graphical complaint I have about WOFF is that its grainy. Though, you can play with that instead of against it and you can come out ahead. Best, I feel, to see it as a style option that you work around than as a dated graphical system.

Wow some of these images are extreme over the top colour and so on, each to his own of course. but Fenin all I can think is your monitor is on the blink as those Reshade manipulated pics you posted are wildly yellow and super high contrast. WOFF is toned to give a realistic slightly washed look as most things in life are when out in the sun etc using mark I eyeballs, with haze and sky reflections etc desaturating slightly etc. Of course I know people will be running on different calibrated monitors and have personal preferences and so on, but even so some pics late in this thread are very whacky to me wink

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 06/28/19 06:02 PM

They are, you're not wrong. I quite like it though, but I have always been a little strange. I was very much aiming for a kind of over saturated look. I did a dogfight in that B.E.12 against an E.II shortly after that and man was he ever visible when head on. The white eindecker skin almost vanished when he turned on me once with the sun behind him though. It was almost like he turned on cloaking.

Then I put a .303 into his gas tank... and he... yeah. He didn't survive that. The B.E.12 is so strange. It's... not slow? I felt like I had every Eindecker I've messed with in QC absolutely out powered. I just wish the gunsight wasn't designed for a cowboy doing hip shooting.

@Fenin - glad you got it up and running - it allows you to tweak so much if you choose. I just love how you can make adjustments and immediately see them in real time as you go with reshade. A real boon! WOFF already has very nice shaders to begin with (but it so wonderful to be able to enhance them!) - but take it to something like IL-2 1946 (which doesn't have very good shaders at all relatively) - and then throw in reshade - and BOOM. Great stuff.

@OVS @Pol - thank you very much! smile OVS - your skins are already amazing and that one is a real beaut! I have been trying to aim for as natural and realistic lighting and color as I can get (though that is subjective). Glad you like the shot, and again wonderful job on the skins! And what a beautiful sim this truly is - really atmospheric and simply sublime! Thanks for that Mark (and Mark). smile

@Adger - thanks for steering me to reshade to begin with and help me get it started! S! I used your starting settings but tweaked them a bit to my taste, but also added ambient light and some gentle HDR and whatnot. Love your shots - very clean, mood envoking - and they look great!

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 06/28/19 08:32 PM

Yeah, it sure does make a difference Redwolf, thank you! I've been messing with it more, as I suspect that's fairly common for people who get stuff like that up and running. Just gotta tweak it... and tweak it... and tweak it...

Was taking aim for a very bright, very saturated, sort of cartoonish look. Sort of like Borderlands, an almost cell shaded kind of feel to it. I don't think I got it, but I did get this and I'm MUCH happier with it. Buildings pop out visually in the woods, with really thick outlines. Aircraft pop a lot too, and it makes the warm times of year feel even warmer. I had to look about in winter too, of course.

I'm very much of the mind that realism is overrated when it comes to visuals. There will always be a difference, and while I do heavily appreciate trying to achieve a realistic look from my experience and to my eyes a more stylized look tends to age better. Even taking something like DCS which I can run in 4k at 100+ fps, it can be beautiful but will it still be in 5 years? The new Microsoft flight sims trailer is gorgeous in comparison, almost as if it was pre-rendered and not in game footage. Just the other day (12 years ago!) I remember thinking that TES IV: Oblivion looked better than real life.

Cheers Redwolf and great shots as always by all..A few here the 1st and 3rd pics are stock WOFF Colours and the 2nd and 4th 5th and 6th ones are Reshade. All taken at 1440p and showing some of the brilliant Jasta skins (Thanks OVS and others)..Dont forget the free skin pack download from the main downloads page lads and also theres some on the Mod page on this site. Great thing about Reshade is..its so easy to tinker and mess around with it unti your happy with your settings do be warned though..Some settings can eat into your FPS.

I recommend downloading every skin possible,it adds so much immersion to the Sim. Also..Thanks OBD the colouring in Stock WOFF is supurb i just personnally use Reshade in 90% of my games.

Very nice pics by all of you! Those Jasta 5 shots look very life-like with the Reshae applied.

Is there a chance you could do a write-up on how to get it working with WOFFUE, and the tweaks you used to get it looking so realistic?

You guys really make this sim look amazing!

Thanks!

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 06/29/19 04:04 AM

Reshade was pretty easy for me to get setup. Go download it, start the setup, point it towards the woff executable file and make sure its set to dx9. Then once that's all done I just jumped in a QC mission and let it load into the mission. The default key to open it up to mess with stuff is the home key. Don't... Don't try to open it too early tho. I tried opening it while it was still loading in the first time and it really didn't seem to like that. I ended up having to do a system restart to get woff to close properly. Oh, and remember to download all the shaders when it asks. Kinda the whole point, eh?

It's got a ton of different shader options, including one that I think you can use to set up psuedo vr? I'm not sure how it works, but it does the mirrored screen jazz with a slight offset. If we have anyone with a vr headset maybe they could test that out?

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 09/23/19 09:33 PM

Excellent pics Jeanba and others - keep them coming. Busy with work currently but hope to fly soon and post some screenies. The 180hp Spad 7 is a good aircraft and sturdy in a dive - also slightly more maneuverable than the Spad 13 variants, although I don't advise prolonged turn-and-burn fighting with it. Also watch landings with it since it has a fairly long roll, much like the 220hp rare variant.

Happy flying,

Re: WOFF UE Screenshots - 09/24/19 01:39 PM

The Fokker DrI is a sitting duck against a properly flown Spad 7 180hp
I would say that the DrI is a "camel killer" or Hanriot or Nieuport 23/24/27 killer : it seems to have been specially designed to kill them

Apparently being unaware that "Random Aircraft Failures" really mean something with the Se5 in April 1917 this truck convoy decides to meander thru my favorite crash landing area. Luckily I was able to “thread the needle.”
First flight with 56 Squadron (in PE) but I still got the touch. Well kind of. I did overshoot the aerodrome I was aiming for. Nobody crash lands better then me though!

You ever read “High in the Empty Blue” which is the history of 56 Squadron? One of my favorite books by the way.
Anyway the amount of malfunctions experienced with the Se5 in its first two months by them, in all categories, is frankly astounding. Especially with the weapons. Amazing they shot down anyone.

After having my little bird vomit its oil on my windscreen the previous day (causing a forced landing just past NML) I was assigned a Balloon Busting mission. As the plane could not be recovered so close to the front I had hoped to get a N17 but no such luck,
I didn't check my loadout prior to takeoff but I guess the armorer figured I needed rockets. Note to self: Figure out the command to fire said rockets before entering combat.
Anyway on my second pass with my trusty Lewis the Hun sausage began to smoke before bursting into flames on my third.
