View Full Version : Wings Over Jungles-NICE!

06-02-2006, 08:32 AM
Just finished the Monkey campaign and I had to compliment PlusWave on a job well done! The atmosphere was superb and the number of planes in the air was impressive for IL2FB/AEP/PF. I particularly enjoyed the feeling of futility early in the campaign when you are flying an inferior plane against superior enemy numbers (the Ki-61 vs P-40D matchups were particularly tough). By the time I "graduated" to the P-38, I felt I had earned it! Really looking forward to the continuation (yes I left it in my ongoing campaigns!) but now I need to make up my mind whether to start the Angel campaign or Wings Over Waves. Thanks PlusWave for a great product!

Me like, too. I just started that same campaign a week ago.

Luckily, I can out turn P-40s in the Ki-61 so far.

HFS: Just one warning! The AI doesn't deal w/the mountains in the New Guinea map very well and I lost a lot of pilots to "green" flak! Good luck http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Ooops. I'm "flyin'" for the other side in the Katana campaign. That's why I mentioned out turning P-40s.

You may outturn the P-40 but it's another question to down it with the Ki's light weapons http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

had to give in a new password.
Now my account name is back to Vulton?

I'm PlusWave!

Vulton, Martin? You're right about that! I was impressed by the P-40's ruggedness in game but those pesky Ki-61s could dictate the terms of engagement for the most part so the player had to be very careful about each maneuver. get low E and you are toast. What are the most effective ways to deal with Ki-61s when flying the P-40D? Anyone?

Hi sgilewicz,

For you the best thing is, that the Ki-61s are flown by the AI.
And the AI isn't very good in keeping up the energy.
So, climb hi and fly as fast as you can.
Dive onto your enemy and zoom out carefully.

That's pretty much how I managed to complete the campaign by keeping my E as high as possible with very careful maneuvering. It seemed, though, that the Ki-61s were pretty much able to pull away whenever they wanted (until I transitioned to the P-38 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif). All in all it was still a blast to play and I've started the Angel campaign (on Midway at the moment). Thanks again for the great work and what's the projected completion date for the campaign extensions?
