I love the appendix with all the cockpit labels and such. There I notice the screenshots with Ace's planes and number of victories. Not a big issue but one suggestion is to change the word "kills" to "victories". They were known as victories and not kills in those days (english of course).

Just got the game well, today actually. Been playing the Demo for a few days first. First rate game. But more, thank you so much for this!! I feel bad always asking people while they're trying to enjoy the game during multi-player fun. This is really great! Thanks to anyone involved in getting this done. I've done manuals and process write-ups before; they are NO FUN!

*cheers*

Not sure about the ipad, but you need an Adobe Reader-type software to view it on the iPod. I'm sure it's the same on the ipad. Or, you can use some kind of translation software and save it as an HTML or MS Word document.

Just google PDF to HTML or Word, or whatever e-reader you use.

Good luck!

just wondering about the alt throttle……
" Altitude throttle: the Fokker D.VIIF and Pfalz D.XII have an additional throttle that allows their BMW engine to give more power at higher altitudes. To avoid damaging your engine, this throttle should not be used below 2000 meters altitude. Above 2000 meters, the throttle can be safely opened to 1/3 of its max output; above 3000 meters, it can be opened to 2/3 of its max output, and it can be opened all the way above 4000 meters"

dont "we" use all the 500, 1000 & 1500m limits?

I ran this question by VikS when writing this section, and according to him these are the values one can use continuously without damaging their engine (2000, 3000, and 4000).

A suggestion, maybe a link to Requiem's instructional video's of flying and bombing?

That may be a good idea. :)

Will you do updates along an at the same time new planes or functions are released too?

Yes, that's the plan, along with making any corrections to errors/typos in the text.

Maybe one on using the Mission Editor like this? That would be invaluable.

I agree, but that would need to be a totally separate project IMO. Not many in the community understand it fully, and I'm certainly not one of them. ;)

Just one comment …

No cockpit Halberstadt CL.II !

Yet it should be out soon and the manual will be already outdated ?

The manual will be updated as is necessary.

just a couple of notes, on page 29 the bomb sight indicator picture there is an arrow pointing to the wind direction indicator which says wind speed adjustment and there is a arrow pointing to the wind speed adjustment with no label. There is also a note about a zoom lever, i don't see it on the picture. I have never seen it it is only available on certain planes maybe?

All the labels look fine here to me. The zoom lever is the one labeled "bombsight magnification adjustment" and is available only on German aircraft.

Wow! You blindsided us with this one!! Very professional, now I guess I have no more excuses to not be a good pilot. The only thing missing is a section on, "How to make more time in your RL to fly ROF! Thank you, Jason, for initiating and finding funds for this, LukeFF for leading this gargantuan effort, Charlo, Zoring and Squid for adding your own expertise and artistic talent. Well done Gents!! Bravo!!!

That is weird, I just looked again and it is not right. The bottom left corner of the bomb sight on page 29 there is an arrow with no label and the wind direction adjustment is labeled wrong. Any body else see this? i even put my glasses on and looked again.
Great work none the less

It's an HP LaserJet CP1525nw.

As for quality, "It's an HP!"

When I worked in IT, at a computer graphics firm, I learned Epson for Inkjet and HP for laser. :mrgreen:

That is so beautiful to me, just how I fantasized it might look printed and bound! :0o:

I had an Epson Artisan 800. Piece of crap. It's been recycled. I'm back to HP, but still inkjet. Didn't realize Laser jets were so cheap now. Any advantages?

Yeah, the price for that model is pretty easy on the pocket (for a laser) but then there is the toner. A full set of four cartridges was about $250.

EDIT: The black cart is $65 by itself and that is good for well over 1000 standard text pages without touching the color at all.

For me the advantage was largely print quality. The speed is also handy sometimes, especially since you can upgrade the memory (from stock 64MB by spending $10 on a 256MB module) which is great for graphics. Oh, and the WiFi and Eprint capability are useful too.

For many people I would say the major advantage is that the ink is not going to dry up, EVER. Every inkjet out there has that problem if it sits idle for any length of time and the cleaning process wastes a ton of ink. In the long run the cost difference might not even be that bad if you allow for all the waste in inkjet headcleaning. Even if you don't print a lot, every print is going to be as good as the last (unless the toner is bone dry that is). That combined with the life expectancy of an HP laser printer being far greater than any inkjet makes it a reasonable investment for many home users.

I actually still have an Artisan 50 that I use at least once a week to keep it clean. I use it just for casual printing and the fact that I can run a printable CD/DVD through it. It makes a very finished looking product.

Wow! Great job on producing this manual. It looks and feels more professional than some manuals I have seen from the big development studios. I particularly like the appendices and all the detail wrapped around the completion of the multi-seat aircraft missions. It is extremely nice to have this as a reference, especially since I do not get to fly as often as I would like. Not having to search through the forum to find how to use the bomb site effectively is gold.

Well done. Everyone involved should be very proud of this product.
