I'm wondering if someone has put together some good guides for this game. Such as shooting, bombing, scenario creation, and most importantly a campaign walkthru?

Thanks for helping me out. I just got out of the hospital, and am trying to take my mind off things. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Another "thank you" for pointing it out. Btw, I also didn't know about the advanced manual on the CD 2 until I've read it in your guide...

Cheers,

It is my pleasure to be able to assist, but the link is not mine.

Michapma or Mike is responsible for this very helpful resource.

Thank him.

jpinard-

I had a couple fairly important operations at this time last year (I went in complaining of pain, they wouldn't let me leave for two days, during which I had an operation, then another a month later) so I can appreciate wanting to get your mind off of things! Hope you're back in perfect shape soon, hospitals aren't fun.

About the campaign, though:
I don't think it's possible to do a campaign walkthrough. The best you might find is a listing of what aircraft you might face in each campaign, as either a Allied or Axis pilot. There are just too many variables and too many campaigns in which you can fly too many planes to produce a true walkthrough of the campaigns, especialyl if you get promoted and can change weapon load-outs. The missions do not progress as scripted events. It's one of the best things about FB, to me.

OK. I guess I was wondering about a get-up-and-running guide for the campaign...

Is there something like that?

Offline Campaign?

Well like Chuck_Older says, how do you prepare someone for a Campaign. It`s not scripted, so we can`t tell you what will happen.

But this I will advise...

Practise your aircraft you`ve chosen to fly in QMB, so you feel comfortable in it. Think of it as recruit training... as war comes closer...

Now, young one, after this you`ll report to your Commanding Officer on the front. Familiarise yourself with your quarters, meet your fellow pilots then report for your first briefing. Don`t forget to take notes; see who your wingie is. Is he a noob like yourself? Or does he have some experience?

On the runway, take off and throttle up as fast as you can. Try to stay in formation, but don`t worry too much as long as you can se the group you`re meant to be with.

When a battle is called observe the forces as they enter battle. Join in to help any wingman. Keep an eye on your six. Try to remain high, ABOVE your enemy. But always back your men, call for back up or help whenever in trouble, do not play hero.

(At this point I`d explain fight tactics, but this depends on the side you choose to fight on).

When you go to fight, think of God and your Country. Serve them well. One other thing, if you find yourself alone, your screen black, with the sound of of a diving plane in your ears- Do not be troubled...

I wish there were an option for training missions before the campaign!
