Well gentlemen :)

The server is down till monday , sorry , i realise you can see it in multiplayer screen and sort of join it , but its not going to work :)

Ive had 4 hours throwing multiple options at the server and moving ENG files around to see if i can bypass the mission transmission lock error and it is dead lock ,stallmate or stuck in limbo-land ,:) you may even say its gone walk about in NO-Mans-Land ,,, i know why and i know how to fix it and it all have to be done monday :(

Sorry , but im only human.

The Guru's / ADMIN at gamearena will fix it up and get the server running smoothly , and i will delete the SOMME Mission !

unfortunately the server restarts on what ever mission it had last run , but the somme mission has an error , so it became a catch 22 loop , i had no idea the mission had a error till the update was made to the server and it highlighted the issue.

Anyway will post on monday when its fixed up :)

Thank you S!

Ah, the growing pains of a new flight-sim. While it can be ultimately frustrating at times, it really is exciting.

Thanks for the server and the effort Wolf. See you Monday. ;)

Chaos , i have seen this type of thing happen on other flight sims , but it was 2v2 , 3v3 , 4v4 style,,,, 1v1 means alot of organising but squad v squad is actually easier to setup.

The last 1v1 contest i know of that was held was around 2005 in china on the 6DOF servers in il-2 , won by schnee known now as RAF_Sola :) , dead right! i recruited him :D

If only 30 pilots want to fly 1v1 it makes more time waiting than 30 pilots fighting 5 v 5 or if possible 200+ pilots fighting 12 v 12.

If alot of interest and people flying on the server wanting this then i can make a EXTRA Dedicated server

If it was to happen it would be more than 1v1 because of time logistics and downtime for the public as making a extra dedicated server just for 30 pilots is not worth the hassle involved.

Get 200+ pilots and hey GAMEARENA would do it heheheheehe
OR
Keep the Gamearena server FULL for a WEEK !
If its full for a full week i can ask for a second server or more :)

But very good and welcome suggestion ,RAF662 squadron would jump in on the fun im sure :D

Best regards

I'm hoping they Fix MP so we can have 1v1 death matches.

But currently we could have 4 sets of 2 fly off into differnet directions then fight, the winers fly back land.

i agree with the others wolf ur the Da man . i will personaly sacifice a chicken in ur name and that all the hard work that u have done will be worth it. Having a place to play thats fair, with no cheating ,friendly and the abilty for other plays to FORGIVE you when u collide with them more than once , makes it easyer to say sorry or its my fault, is a nice change .
ps. Wolf i only have a black chicken is thst ok ? :lol:

All of the new missions have at least one AI plane each side that take off and DOGFIGHTs , yes it ATTACKs you ,,, :) if you come close to them , all set on ACE so give them respect they have attitued and hold a grudge LOL

If you like the idea of one AI take off on both teams i can set the other 5 missions up with this setup so all missions will start even if only one person is in the server.

The only bad thing i can see with this style of new mission is that when you select a plane and goto the hanger and setup convergance , if you report ready and your computer is a fast computer then a slower computer may not be ready and the game will of started before they have loaded and selected a plane….

I think i can solve that issue by making the mission REPORT READ starting mission countdown be abit longer but at the same time reduce the end mission statistics timer countdown to say 5 seconds.

Anyway , will be doing some fine tuning to the gamearena settings of the server later in the week.

Below is a list possible changes
Friendly Icons will stay ON , but enemy icons OFF
Padlock OFF
End of Mission Statistics page timer from 60 seconds - to - 5 or 10 seconds
Start of mission reported ready countdown timer from 60 seconds to 80 - 90 seconds (ish)

If this causes issues i can always turn them back on again , but lets see how it goes first.

Best Regards
