FA Futures/FA-2 News

12-17-2006 - All File Limits in FA Futures have been eliminated with the new access gained to all default library files in FA. This will allow FAF files to be added and default FA files to be removed, eliminating all file limits now encounted with FA Futures. The new libraries will replace all default libraries in the sim and give true stability to FA Futures as never seen before!

FA Futures/FA-2 News

11-27-2006 - Radical_D has begun working again on his realeastic terrain height map for FAF Korea. His work will include importing true life elevations to the FAF Korea map to test out how the FA game endinge can handle true elevations. The work is difficult due to the bureaucracy at the USGS and NIMA sites. His paln is to try to give FAF Korea realism of Korean terrain to improve pilot emersion in the simuation. The import will begin testing next year with a posible eye on expanding the map from 256 x 256 to a 512 x 512 combat theater map! This would dramatically increase the theater size for FAF Korea and include large segmetns of Japan, Okinawa, China, and Russia to bettger represent all potential adversaries.

11-18-2006 - Final F-14A/B/D shapes and dtailed skins have been completed. The new shapes have the high resolution skins, with no panel mirroring, proper aircraft markings located on proper areas of the wings and fuselage, proper low glow night formation light panels, proper photo realeastic landing gear, and proper squadron markings on the tail fins and fuselage panels(again with no 'mirroring effects" and with the IR/camera pod added under the nose. The new shape is multiplayer compatible. Read more on the VNFAWING Forums by clicking here ...

FA Futures/FA-2 News

11-14-2006 - Over the last 10 months, Duke and I have fine tuned the ECM on the aircraft, to provide a good level of electronic protection, but not be overwhelming to SAM and Air-2-Air missiles.
The introduction of the Home On Jam (HOJ) seeker onto certain air-2-air and SAM missiles, makes the use of a jammer hazardous, at best, since both AI and human pilots can detect you if your jammer is emitting, even if your radar is not emitting, and even if you are 'beaming' the bandit, and then target you and kill you with a HOJ missile.
While an escort jammer can physically hide the other non-emmitting aircraft in his formation, from detection by a human pilot, since it physically jams the radar window, it doesnt protect the other aicraft from AI based weapons.
So ECM is a tradeoff. It truly knocks back radar detection range and it reduces effectiveness of radar guided weapons, but it also opens you up to detection from long range and from strikes by HOJ weapons (which give no missile launch warning).
Use it only when absolutely necessary!

11-13-2006 - Tested New CBU-97/B SFW (Sensor Fused Weapon) tonight while flying online with Duke.
The weapon is AWESOME!!! It is a 100% improvement on the previous version I built for FAF Korea 2004 Winter test library! It lays down 40 'skeets' in a string from the canister and its GREAT for hammering a convoy of vehicles! A single bomb will easily take out 12 to 15 armored vehicles, even more if they are soft skinned vehicles!
Duke and I tested this against a convoy in the mountians and we DEVASTATED the full armored convoy that was protected with maximum air-defenses!
It was an absolute blast! The sky fills with black smoke trails as the 'skeets' fire down onto their targets! The vehicles go up in fireballs, one after another! Its a superb weapon and truly realeastic, as this weapon was used to wipeout a complete Iraqi Armored Brigade at the beginning of the war! All that was left was a ton of craters from the blasts!
I think Duke might want to add to this... It truly was a thrilling experience in FAF Korea ...

11-12-2006 - FA Maps, pne of the only major remaining bugs in FAF Korea 2006...

One of the remaining major obsticles to release of FAF Korea s the XP Compliance errors in the Korean Map...
This bug, so far, has still stumped me. When you add beyond a few items to the map MM file, you CTD in multiplayer... Very frustrating to say the least! I dont know why the sim is doing this. It either involves the new expanded terrain tile locations or the new placement of items (air defense items) in new off map locations. Further beta testing will be required to solve this issue. This is one of the last major bugs we have to overcome to release FAF Korea and hopefully it will be solved soon...

11-10-2006 - Over the last 10 months, Kap was successful at editing all of the improved flight models to make them all XP Multiplyer compliant! This work was all confirmed by online flights between myself and DukeB-120th, flying nearly every weekend on the server kindly provided by Magnum_VF running a TS server for communications and a copy of Aguada's FA Flight Lobby (Thank you Aguada!)...
This allowed quite alot of feedback to Kap, who successsfully worked all the kinks out of his FMs to give us the best flight models on the net today! These new, and stable, FMs will be in the FAF Korea. Visit the VNFAWING Forums by clicking here ...

06-24-2006 - Additional work has been accomplished on ground vehicle weapons with a much more realeastic artillery "effect" to replicate "steel rain" during artillery bombardments. The new artillery round also has a new shape to represent the new "shell" during flight. A new GPS guided round and a new laser guided "copeprhead" round are also in development to give AI controlled ground vehicles a bigger effect in overall mission performance. This allows FA Futures to bette replicate the "real" ground war. Visit the Forums by clicking here for further details...

05-17-2006 - Beta Testing continues on Kap's flight models to certify them for multilayer in XP. The testing is occurring offsite as the forums and website have been temporarily interrupted due to problems with the host service. This news is being added to the archies and will be added to the main page when the site returns to the net. Visit the Forums by clicking here for further details...

04-11-2006 - Development continues on high resolution FAF skins for all the new shapes. 512 x 512 skins have been implemented and are "compressed" onto the nwe shapes to showed much improved detail and depth to the shape. The new skins have been shown to be both single player and multiplayer compliant in XP. Visit the Forums by clicking here for further details...
FA Futures/FA-2 News
03-01-2006 - So far this has not been a good year for FA Futures development. Continued errors keep cropping up in Kap's flight models when flying in multiplayer. Additional Beta Testing will be required to iron out all the problems. This will delay the release of FA Futures Korea until at least 2007. Visit the Forums by clicking here for further details...
FA Futures/FA-2 News
02-19-2006 - FA Futures development slowing... Work is continuing on FA Futures but has slowed due to unexpected errors when combining all files into full sized libraries. Ist seems there are still some mysteries about the way XP handles large files that is preventing FA Futures libraries from working together. Additional testing will be necessary to determine where the errors are located... Visit the Forums by clicking here for further details...

FA Futures/FA-2 News
01-31-2006 - New weapons development has begun for FA Futures. With the recent break though in file limits for FA it has been decided that advanced weapons such as the CBU-97 Sensor Fused Weapon (SFW) will be developed, along with improved GPS munitions, to add the player choices and in game realism. The weapons wil lhave multiple effects and be designed for use against armored vehicles in the field. The CBU-97 in particular will be a major advancement over the original version released in the 2004 Winter Test library set last year. Visit the Forums by clicking here for further details...

Falcon 4.0 News
06-05-2006 - (From Lead-Pursuit.com)News Update:
We're pleased to announce the release of Patch 1.0.7 for Falcon 4.0: Allied Force. Development has primarily focused on MP with considerable improvements to the "Host Only" server function and positional updates. Please update using either the bfopsupdate.exe utility in the Battlefield Operations folder, or download the patch from the downloads section of this website.
Again, 1.0.7 is a cumulative patch containing all the improvements of previous updates. It can be installed on top of a CD version of Allied Force, or any previously patched version of the simulation.
An extra point about the bfopsupdater: If your current installation is not 1.0.6, you'll need to update once, then reboot, then update again using the bfopsupdater. That will take you to 1.0.7.
Remember, if you have HiTiles installed, please restore the original terrain using the HiTilesAF_AlliedForce.exe, patch to 1.0.7, then restore HiTiles after patching.

Falcon 4.0 News
05-22-2006 - (From Lead-Pursuit.com)News Update:
A brief update on the progress of our forthcoming update, 1.0.7. This primarily focuses on multi-player and in particular addresses a few issues affecting the server function and dogfight module. Testing multi-player is, by its very nature, most time consuming. But the team has made significant progress. We are keen to release 1.0.7 as quickly as practicable, although there is no date for delivery yet. But as an indication, it will be in a fraction of the timescale for the development of 1.0.6. ...

Falcon 4.0 News
05-02-2006 - (From Lead-Pursuit.com) News Update:
Our most comprehensive update yet for Allied Force, 1.0.6, is finished and released. Please update using either the bfopsupdate.exe utility in the Battlefield Operations folder or download the "exe" update from the downloads section of our website. The patch -- weighing in at 38MB -- is cumulative, so you do not need to download previous patches. It will install on top of a "vanilla" CD install, or any previously patched version of Allied Force. You will need to uninstall Dr Stop's pit and Tom Waetli's HiTiles before running the update -- then reinstall the pits and terrain. A special thanks to our beta testing team whose input was invaluable. The changelog is detailed below.

Version 1.06 (Patch 5)
======================
ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE:
Fixed a bug that sometimes caused On-call CAS AI flights to attack targets before attempting to check in with FAC.
On-call CAS flights now request targets from the FAC after two minutes instead of four if unassigned.
Fixed TARCAP flights continuing to press on aircraft like An-124 even after it has been identified.
AI now able to use afterburner power for a short time after Rejoin command is received.
Mid-air refuelling rewritten. Tanker now maintains correct speed and altitude.
Many changes to AI refuelling and multiplayer-specific code.

AVIONICS & WEAPONS:
Fixed HSD showing wingmen in Dogfight after they have been destroyed.
Fixed static ground vehicles not showing up in GM radar mode.
ALOW and MSLFloor warnings are now played whether the HUD is visible on screen or not.
Fixed TGP going into POINT lock immediately upon first designation.
Fixed Com1 and Com2 Volume knobs to work again.
Fixed TACAN station bearing indicator on HSI to not display bearing if the station can not be received.
Fixed PL-5E seeker range to be shorter.
Fixed bug where contacting an airbase other then the landing one was impossible in certain situations.
Various fixes/improvements to A-A Weapon handling:
Each Mastermode remembers which weapon type has been selected (AIM-9M/P etc) and will set the weapon again when the mode is reselected at a later point.
All A-A Radarmodes are available from all A-A Mastermodes. Dogfight Override mode, for example, can have RWS as selected radar mode, and Missile Override can use the ACM modes.
Each Mastermode remembers its gun submode.
AIM-9M and AIM-9X can be switched properly if in the same loadout.
The Mastermodes will no longer have the radar turned on when selecting another weapon by either the Enter key or the OSB buttons. The radar only starts emitting when a mode is selected.
Fixed gun rounds counter sometimes showing zero when there were still bullets left.
Fixed bug where a target could not be locked to STT mode in TWS mode when the azimuth scan was set to something other then 60 degrees.
Fixed bug where stealthy vehicles like F-117A were not even lockable using IR sensors even at closest ranges. Frame-rate improvement to HSD display.
Fix bug where designating/undesignating with the HSD as SOI and the cursor over a pre-planned threat did not toggle it's range-ring.
Fix the new CBU burst altitude value not being shown in the MFD when pressing the decrement burst altitude keystroke. When changing target in simplified radar, set padlock target to the new target.

DATA:
Fixed all 05/23 airbase tower voice calls to wrong runway.

CAMPAIGN / TACTICAL ENGAGEMENT:
Updated stores for some squadrons in campaigns.
Some ROK infantry changed to correct unit type in Korean campaign.
EF/A-18G added to all 2010 campaigns.
Mission times tasked according to threat/range (fewer deep strikes in first hours of campaign that just abort).
Changing the takeoff waypoint time sometimes resulted in the flight not getting pilots assigned. Fixed for single and multiplayer.
In Tactical Engagement, naval units can now be set as victory conditions and in Campaign they can be a target now for self-created missions.
Saving a Tactical Engagement file now resets the "TE won" situation so new successive missions and victory conditions can be added as an ongoing "mini-campaign".
Prevent AWACS from setting up waypoints that lead them flying too close to the FLOT.

COCKPIT:
Fixed RWR position in all three 2D 1600x1200 resolution cockpits in wide-view, one click down.
Speed up of drawing 2D cockpit views without visable outside view.
Improved instruments in padlock situational awareness bar.
Adjusted RWR position in all 3D cockpit views.
Support for all available resolutions and aspects greater than 800x600. Since 2D cockpit is of 4:3 aspect ratio, on wide screens there will be black bars on the sides. All pure 3D views and outside views are full screen.
Fixed fontsize of HUD and DED data in wideview in 1024x768 res 2D cockpit of the MLU.
Increased down-tilt limit in 3D cockpit so we can see the whole MFD when looking closer.

Moved labels up so they don't obscure objects.
Dynamically scale label offset based on object radius and distance.
Don't show opposite (wrong) tanker lights when in extreme relative position to tanker.

HARDWARE:
Added power detection for notebooks that warns when battery is low both in 3D and the User Interface.
Added support for DED display on Logitech G15 keyboard LCD.
Fix for missing cursor, buttons and lights issues on nVidia graphics devices at resolutions greater than 1024x768 and FSAA enabled.

MODELS & TEXTURES:
Fixed texture on flaps of F/A-18D.
Added texture to F/A-18E.
Adjust LOD of the building "Hotel" at some airbases so it does not "pop up" visually.
Fixed many buildings with missing parts (walls, roof, etc).
Fixed texture issue on Wonsan airbase type, center runway.
Fixed many fuel tanks not shown textured (they are used on J-22, F-5E/A, Su-7BK, Su-39, MiG-23, Su-24, Su-25, AMX, Typhoon).
Fixed AMX texture issues on nose.

Falcon 4.0 News
02-06-2006 - (From Lead-Pursuit)News Update: February 6th, 2006 Lead Pursuit LLC is pleased to announce another official add-on for Falcon 4.0: Allied Force. Stopworks.us brings additional F-16 cockpits and pilot add-ons to the award-winning F-16 combat flight simulator.
Produced under license by Scott Purdy, Stopworks offers additional Block 40 and Block 50 cockpits for use over the hi-tech battlefield. The cockpits - entirely constructed of textured and detailed 3D models - merge seamlessly with the surrounding Falcon world, and offer additional side-panel views, exceptionally smooth and shadowed button animations, warning flags, a full-color HSI, realistic tall-sidestick and ramp start functionality. The cockpits can be used in concert with combat edge-equipped pilots, or other pilot add-ons emblazoned with your favorite real or virtual squadron.
Joel Bierling, Executive Producer, Lead Pursuit LLC, said: "The "office" environment for the combat pilot is a particularly important aspect of any simulation. These new cockpits from Stopworks give a highly innovative feel to the experience of flying an F-16 aircraft, complementing the acclaimed pits in Allied Force. We know many Allied Force pilots will be delighted with this new collaboration following the success of Tom Waelti's HiTilesAF terrain enhancement release."
Scott "Dr. Stop" Purdy said: "The new partnership is a great moment for fans of the Falcon series, where they can now officially take to the skies in a unique series of cockpits. Fans of Stopworks cockpits and pilots will be thrilled to know that Lead Pursuit has their interests at heart, and that the Stopworks products will be compatible with the current and future versions of Falcon 4.0: Allied Force."
The cockpit and pilot add-ons can be purchased now from where one can also find further information, screenshots, and a FAQ ... Click here to read further.

01-11-2006 - (From Lead-Pursuit)News Update:
More and more games are now turning to dual core technology to give an extra boost to performance. As many of you will know, Falcon 4.0: Allied Force was optimized for dual core processors from Day One. SimHQ has been benchmarking Allied Force with dual core CPUs for some time and they've just published their latest feature. It examines the AMD FX-60, the company's new top end CPU and the first in the FX line equipped with two cores. There are interesting comparisons with other simulations and CPUs on the market.

Falcon 4.0 News
01-09-2006 - (From Lead-Pursuit)News Update:
A service update on our forthcoming patch, 1.0.5. We're pushing ahead well, addressing a few nagging installation problems some users were experiencing with 1.0.4. The patch is still in testing and no date confirmed for delivery, but progress in the last week is very encouraging. 1.0.5 will also correct other gameplay issues.
Realism is the theme in reviews of Allied Force -- this time in publications from aerospace organisations. Aerospace Professional, published by the prestigious Royal Aeronautical Society, says: "Lead Pursuit have taken Falcon and radically improved it where it counts. The avionics, up-front control panel, engine start-up sequence and especially the radar are the most realistic outside of an F-16 procedure trainer." Elsewhere, Everything Aerospace says: "The best [combat] sim to get is Falcon 4.0: Allied Force, a superlative F-16 simulator ... the most realistic unclassified software on the market."
The community of Allied Force enthusiasts continues to show great passion. For those unsure how to start up the F-16 in Allied Force from cold, an excellent six-page guide from "Brent" is available. The .pdf can be found here in the downloads section of our website. And a new dogfighting competition has been unveiled. It'll start with a tournament this month to determine initial ratings before the ladder is established. Details here . If you prefer a little less intensive online experience, visit here for details of "Multivipers" server and here for "Hardcores" campaign server.

02-21-2006 - (From SimHQ)Hi everyone, I am proud to announce that the Lock On: Flaming Cliffs Manual is now available at GoGamer.com! Just follow this link at the bottom of this message.

This manual covers the different weapons systems and avionics of the aircraft found in Lock On Modern Air Combat and Lock On: Flaiming cliffs. This is the .pdf manual that is included on the CD, but has been printed and is spiral bound so it lays flat when open. If you like study-sims than this will give you hours of great enjoyment. Enjoy!



Here are some example pages. I'm not sure what kind of paper it is printed on only that is appears to be about 80 lb semi-glossy finish. Please excuse my poor photography. I took them in a hurry. As you can see it covers all the different aspects of the sim. Its just nice having it right in front of you instead of on a screen. It is 260 pages.

TSH JF-18 News

10-18-2006 - (From Team Super Hornet) Subject: Attention mission builders: please do not use Mk-65 naval mine:
In the future TSH will be releasing weapons modifications which remove the Mk-65 QUICKSTRIKE naval mine from the Jane's F-18 inventory. This weapon slot will be replaced with an alternative weapon.
TSH asks that all future missions be designed using Mk-60 CAPTOR mines only. Work is underway to modify existing missions that use MK-65 mines; new versions of these missions will be released that use only MK-60 mines.

Thank you...


TSH JF-18 News

08-18-2006 - (From Team Super Hornet) Subject: IMPORTANT TSH ANNOUNCEMENT
Since the formation of Team Superhornet, Jane's F-18 modders have pursued access to the original source code (property of Electronic Arts). Although there were at times high hopes of getting this code, 6 years later we still have not received anything from EA. While TSH would welcome dialogue with EA, none has been forthcoming so far.
But there is still hope for Jane's F-18 modding. When WarfareFix was released in 2004, JF-18 pilots saw the first efforts of direct modification of the JF-18 assembly code. What TSH members learned in this process allowed development to proceed with TSHv3. The recently released TSHv3 includes over 5,000 lines of modified code, all of it accomplished through the manipulation of the dissasembled code.
While there will always be things that are impossible to accomplish without source code access, there is much that can be done given the current contraints. For years TSH had fielded requests to change the flight model of the F-18E, and to add flight models for the F-14 and A-10, and even the F-15E. The answer to these requests has always been that it cannot be done without the source code. Today TSH announces that this response has been intentionally misleading, for obvious reasons. The means to alter the Jane's F-18 flight model exists, and it involves assembly code modification.
If you are familiar with assembly code, TSH needs your help. It is not a simple process, but the potential payoff is large. In addition to new flight models, assembly code modification could potentially lead to other improvements; every time TSH learns more about the code we get new ideas about what might be done to it.
If you feel you can help TSH in any way (even if you don't have assembly knowledge, but especially if you do), then please contact a TSH member here or at the TSH forums. TSH development is continuing and many exciting things are planned for future releases.


TSH JF-18 News

04-25-2006 - (From Team Super Hornet) Subject: UPDATE 4-25-06: The TSHv3.03 patch is now available. This adds additional bugfixes for HARM symbology when big HUD fonts are enabled, as well as the TrackIR recenter command. In addition, selection of BelowNormal priority has been added. Please note that the priority is fixed at Normal if a compatibility mode is used. If you are using a compatibility mode and want to change priority from Normal, you must do it manually using the Task Manager. This is a cumulative patch which updates TSHv3.0, TSHv3.01, or TSHv3.02 to TSHv3.03. If you have downloaded and installed TSHv3.03 you do not need this patch.

03-30-2006 - (From Team Super Hornet) Subject: UPDATE 3-30-06: The TSHv3.02 patch is now available. This adds additional bugfixes for big HUD fonts when Master-Mode-specific keymappings are enabled simultaneously with big HUD fonts, as well as corrects the bug where master modes switch rapidly if Master-Mode-specific keymappings are enabled. This is a cumulative patch which updates TSHv3.0 or TSHv3.01 to TSHv3.02. If you have downloaded and installed TSHv3.02 you do not need this patch.

03-23-2006 - (From Team Super Hornet) Subject: UPDATE 3-23-06: TSHv3 has a bug where the new intro movie will cause Jane's F/A-18 to crash to desktop if the movie is enabled and the sim is started in Warfare Mode. This bug has been fixed in TSHv3.01.

TSH JF-18 News

03-18-2006 - (From Team Super Hornet) Subject: Team Superhornet is proud to announce the release of TSHv3. Please click on thelinks below to view the TSHv3 Manual, which contains important information regarding TSHv3 (including download links).

To obtain the TSHv3 Manual click here ...

If you are installing TSHv3 over an existing JF-18 installation, the TSHv3 manual contains instructions. If you are installing TSHv3 as part of a fresh install, please follow instructions in the TSH Add-on Installation Guide.
While TSHv3 includes many new features for Jane's F/A-18, it also changes the way a few of the old ones work (such as switchable cockpits, higher resolutions, wideview, etc.). The reason for this is to include all existing TSH features in one common install (i.e no more executable split between various resolutions and wideview options). This common install and executable allows a TSHv3-modified version of Jane's F/A-18 to become the new standard on which futher TSH development work will be based.

The TSH Add-on Installation Guide can be obtained by clicking here .

Please do not hesitate to ask any questions you may have. TSHv3 is complicated and TSH hopes that every can learn to use the features as easily as possible that they desire. Enjoy!

02-18-2006 - (From Team Super Hornet) Subject: TSHv3 PREVIEW
TSH is getting close to the release of TSHv3, so we'd thought we give the Jane's F/A-18 community a preview of what you can expect in the upcoming release.

TSHv3 Feature List
Bigger HUD fonts, improving legibility at higher resolutions while maintaining the size of MDI text.
Keymappings for all UFC touchscreen controls, such as the scratchpad, TACAN selection, RALT adjust, AP control, etc.
Keymappings for all other cockpit controls that currently can only be clicked, such as RDR/BARO altitude, Jettison Select stations, Bingo settings, etc.
NAVFLIR capability when only an ATFLIR is carried, as on the real Superhornet.
Support for a second controller's analogue axes.
Support for a second controller's DirectX button inputs.
Support for a third controller’s analogue axes.
A toggle for joystick sensitivity settings, useful for less sensitive settings during refueling or landing and more sensitive settings during combat.
Analogue axis control of TDC movement, radar antenna elevation, FLIR contrast, and FLIR brightness.
Master-Mode-specific keymappings.
Custom movies that can be inserted into user-created campaigns.
Ability to link a mission file with a specific terrain texture.
Normal/high executable operating system priority control for compatibility with other applications.
Customizable mouse cursor hiding (the mouse cursor can be confusing when using enhanced TrackIR).
Selection of a wide range of resolutions instead of the limited choice of three that currently exists.
A requirement to press SHIFT+ESC to end a multiplayer misson, regardless of the F18misc.ini entry.
TrackIR Enhanced functionality; this was present in the Ultimate Patch and is retained in TSHv3.
TSHv3 Bugfix List
Movies no longer skip in Windows XP.
The radar antenna's lower limit is constrained (previously elevation could be decreased infinitely).
The SA-13/SA-15 small/large site inversion in the mission builder menu is corrected. This fix was present in WarfareFix, but TSHv3 introduces it to Normal Mode gameplay.

Using TSHv3
As you can see, TSHv3 does quite a few things. It adds some functionality that is present in newer sims (multiple controller support, extended analogue axis controls, mode-specific keymappings, many resolution choices), keymaps the entire cockpit, and allows for custom movies, etc. Some TSHv3 features are fixed and activated automatically when TSHv3 is installed; this includes such things as new cockpit keymappings, NAVFLIR-in-ATFLIR, etc. Other features are user-controllable through the TSHv3 Manager...
