Also Box.net is a good site. No difficulty at all.
Did anyone else see a convoy of trucks over the lines and shoot the beezezus out of them ? It wasn't historical, but that SE5 strafes so well. Lucky no huns above that day

Brilliant (free) campaign. There is obviously a lot of work gone into this campaign.
My only gripe is that the AI in my flight don't stay with me. On all three missions they disappear through the overcast rather than stay with me.

Yeah, I was tempted to attack the convoy too but realized it was friendly. I am playing with the no flak mod so the old front is more believable with no AA bursts.
Am I the only one who is weirded out by the location of no man's land? I understand the historical context, but surely there would be more to go by than unscathed fields and forests!
Great campaign, though!

All I get when I try to download is 'the person hosting this server is out of Bandwidth'.
Bite off more than you can chew.
Then chew like Hell ! ! !

Love the "Wings" style presentation. Really brings the whole thing to life.

Any hints on what planes i will meet there? Or it's anything that the Germans (and RoF ) have that time like Alb. D.III, D.Va, Pfalz D.III, Dr.I, Halberstadt, DFW, ?Gotha ?

If you read the quote at the end (which came right from Flying Fury – I'm cheating and reading each mission in my copy of the book before I fly it ): "We flew up and down the line for an hour, but no sign of any Hun Machines about….") you can figure out what's coming.
What is done very well in this mission is providing the ground combat action McCudden describes in the book. Very nice recreations of real missions!
Nice to have an actual war going on down there, too.

Prangster's done a fine job with his Flying Fury campaign. And I thank him for finally pushing me to install all the community historical skins. But it was well worth it!

1) Fly alone;
All other stayed above those thick clouds and
Ofc, I didn't want to follow them - how could
I orientate myself then? this is not IL2 where
you have wonder-radar field mod, mind you)
2) Never saw any of the enemies;
(but considering my pilot skills that
wasn't a bad thing, mind you. again )
3) Didn't notice any… "actual ground war";
(what was that actually - actual ground war?)
4) I lost it. Waypoints I mean. (although,
like I said, I DID fly under the clouds to be
able to orientate)
now you'll probably start to wonder "so what
in the God's name was then there to be so…
blasted off ??" Well, really… dunno…
It's whole atmosphere.
I guess. Vehicles, convoys, that dude with his
signal pistol, and, just maybe…
those magnificent weather situations (how in the
world did he manage that? I could never produce
those atmospheric occasions,in those rudimentary
"quick flight" section !?? How did he ???
That, and the little fact that I KNEW that I just
didn't done it the right way, that it's up to me,
truth be told. But missions are really wonderful.
Another thing that gives some weight is that
they - historical. How could you ask for more ?

Is it possible to use it for playing cooperative in multiplayer or is only for single player?

The movies, the images, the atmospheric music, the story and the whole presentation are great! The best campaign I've played in RoF. That must have been a lot of work.
As long as user realize such projects remains my purse for official campaigns closed. You show here how it's done!
Thank you Prangster
(P.S. 777 should hire you. For your next campaign I would also pay)

In my haste to publish the campaign I realize that I didn't give enough credit to the people who help and inspired it.
First of all I'd like to thank SYN_Vander for coming up with most of the original ideas for the videos and briefings in his superb St Mihiel campaign. If I hadn't played that I wouldn't have been inspired to try his techniques myself. I'd also like to thank him for his video tutorials, if you want to try mission building they are the first thing you should look at.
I'd also like to thank SYN_Bandy for his lovely maps of the front that were so valuable when designing the missions. They are also included as printable maps for each mission and I've now added a belated acknolegement on each map.
Finally I'd like to thank Moggs, Malc, Badger and all my squadron members from The Tangmere Pilots who beta tested the missions for me.
So thank you all.
