Although i don't like at all the need to login/to be online each time i want to play, i just had to buy this sim. It took three weeks to arrive to my door from US. It works great. It is at its beginnings, there is no Mission Editor manual yet ... but the feeling of flight is great. It's a pain to bomb tanks diving from a SPAD, or shoot trains or vehicles on the road, the AI flies pretty well (just that the latest patches made them kind-of-snipers).
For multiplayer, for now what it has is only the COOP mode, which people now use in a short-mission-time kind of mode (10 to 30 minutes) to emulate a kind of dogfight server.

Most details can be found on this forum:

If some of you gentlemen buy the game, pls tell me so that we can try to fly together sometime.

Salute!

Thanks for the feedback, Gabi - I don't have RoF yet, still saving up for a PC that will be good enough to run it. With a bit of luck the initial glitches and bugs will be sorted out by then, and there will be the add-on aircraft packs to expand it. The engine-management side of it looks interesting...

Are you still interested in. or able to tweak or update ReLoad? I have done some more work on the German carburettors (posted at the Aerodrome, Pt.3 to my 'Altitude Compensating carburettors' thread), and a small 'tweak' in the threshold height of 'Type 5' engines could be used to include this new information, I think.

I promise, when i have some more time, to dig again in ReLoad and update it about this, and i will of course ask you for info and feedback :)

Thanks Gabi!

I have just noticed that my ReLoad Configuration settings have A= and B= still in them, and (if I remember correctly) one of these is for Stationary engines - so I guess I can change the threshold setting for myself :)

There is a new superpatch, MFP5, now in beta testing - combines WFP2 with Mark's latest MFP5 and Greybeard's latest FM changes. Details on the WFP Forum.

Yes, i was going to mention the A and B params, but i only after looking again through the sources of the program, because i wasn't sure if they would solve the problem :) If you have different values, you can tell me and when i recompile the program, i will put them as default values inside the executable.

Hope all is well :)

S!

Thanks Gabi, yes I will fiddle around with them and let you know the results :)

The only problem is that the one for stationary engines will effect all non-rotary engines, not just the German ones - so would it be an easy matter to add a third 'C' param just for 'Type 5' (or possibly a new Type 6)? I don't want to put you to a lot of trouble, if this would involve a lot of re-writing of the program.

I am well, thank you :)
