Post subject: What I have left to finish for FAF Korea... Reply with quote
Need to complete the followng items to relase FAF Korea...

1. New Suspension Bridge shape & Skin (75% completed)
2. New Kuznetsov Carrier Shape & Skin (60%completed)
3. New M2 Bradley and M2 Linebacker Shape & Skin (50% compelted)
4. New M109A6 Paladin Shape & skin (50% completed)
5. New SA-10 shape & Skin (50% completed)
6. New Patriot Vehicles, shapes & Skins (20% completed)
7. New Nike Hercules SAM Site & missile shape & Skin (0% completed)
8. New Railroads (25% completed)
9. Shipes wakes shapes & Skins (50% completed)
10. New runway shapes & Skins (65% completed)
11. New ZSU-23 Towed AAA shape & Skin (50% completed)
12. Various new Radar vehicles shapes & Skin with moving antennas (40% completed)
13. New MiG-19 shape & Skin (50% completed)
14. New MiG-23/27 shape & Skin (65% completed)
15.Improved MiG-29/33/35 shapes & Skins that eliminate CTD error (0% completed... I thought I had solved this but the CTDs returned under testing)
16. New Su-17/22 with working swing wing shape & Skin (50% completed)
17. Improved Su-24 shape & Skin (75% completed)
18. Improved Su-25 shape & Skin (50% completed)
19. Improved Su-27,33,35 shapes & Skins (50% completed)
20. New Russian Rocket and mobile gun artillery vehicles shapes & Skins(50% completed)
21. New Chinese J-10 shape and & Skin (80% completed)
22 New Chinese J-7 shapes & Skins (50% completed)
23. New T-55 based tank shapes & Skins (50% completed)

I also need to fix some slight errors in the new F/A-18 E/Fs, the KC-10 and the Typhoon and complete the new skin on the Nimitz class carriers.

This list isnt to long and shows the vast amount of work that has already been completed...

Possibly might be able to add High Resolution Terrain Tiles with 4 times the pixel resolution (terrain is based on 512 x 512 tiles instead of 256 x 256 tiles)...

This terrain work is undergoing testing and may or may not make the release early in 2011... Also the same with the new 512 x 512 expanded theater maps. (the maps themselves in FA are 256 x 256 sized and can now be expanded up to 4 times in size). This will most likely be an upgrade that can be added down the road...

I will try to get all of these completed by the end of January or the beginning of February... The Flight Models have already been multiplayer tested so all I will have to do is build all the libs and test them for crashes.

I WILL NEED BETA TESTERS for a short time to test FAF Korea before release...

CAN ANYONE HELP ME???? Duke is at college so he has not been available to help me...

Can anyone else help me test in late January or early February?

Please respond here and let me know...

Thanks!

Duke has offered to take on the related organization of all FAF Files so I can regain some control on this project to give me a complete and final analysis of what is truly left to do and what works, and what still doesnt work...

Hopefully I can get this accomplished within a few weeks...

46. Chinese Type 59/6996/98/99 tanks and the Type 62/63 light tanks shapes and skins(100% completed)


BLUE means work abandoned on this item.

RED means completed that specific item on the list.

BOLD means that I worked more on that specific item on the list.


I have also completed all the North Korean tanks (all based off the T-62 or the Type 59/69 and the Type 62 and type 63 tanks). Next concentrating on all artillery and self propelled artillery plus infantry fighting vehicles and armored personnel carriers with all new detailed shapes and skins.

I will also have a further revamp of all the airfield shapes to increase realism and reduce the number of separate items to represent an airfield more realistically...

I am also removing most default items from the original FA libs so that file size is no longer an issue when a new item replaces the original. This will remove any problems with number of items in the game and not limit the number of missions that can be created or number of new campaigns...

CAG, please help me in recalling a matter... you're running all these on Windows 7, right?
This mine only because many and many people have 8.1 (and you too, as I believe) and 10 will be released soon...

I don't have Win 8... So I have yet to even try to fly FA on it...

These work in Win 98, XP SP3, Win 7...

I don't know if anyone has even tried flying FA in Win 8 or what it might entail...

Have you tried it?

This must be your lucky day... as my usual I tried to solve my doubts on my own, so I tried to make a fresh FA installation on my actual system.
Win 8.1 first update and a lot of other stuff installed, it's as fast as a Falcon - in all senses, Laughing

I succeeded. Just after I had a few flights to test the "new" baby, not too bad results in short. Just missing the cockpit. I'm curious to see what happens if I use my X-52 on.

Without need to do anything special about, adjustments or other crap. Or perhaps one only instead, I have installed previously the DirectX 9 for Windows 7, but I did it for FreeFalcon, my actual fav sim since a few years.

One target, one shot, steel to target.

Sounds Great! Hey if I send you FAF libs do you mind testing them on win 8.1? Perhaps you could send me screenshots and opinions on things as I finish them...

Interested? I know its not Falcon, but I am sure you still have a special place in your heart for old FA!

Hey, hey.

FreeFalcon is a matter... but FA is still another, and I won't forgive any of those good things made together.

Please feel free to send me anything you want, you have my email.
I'll do my worst Very Happy to do what I'm able to do about testing and let you know after.
Ah, let me say something more: I've checked it, those DirectX I've installed have been made for Win 8-8.1, and not for 7, as I wrote. My apologies.

UPDATE: Windows 8.1 verified...

I was surfing Zephyrnet and found FA worked well in 8.1 in compatibility mode...

Sure, but you'd better to install those DircetX before, I think... but perhaps you'll succeed the same without doing anything else.
It would be worth a try...
