Yes but RB3D was designed 3DFX and Glide, which is now by the wayside. Will it work worth a crap in DirectX??????

Why do they keep updating that old arse sim?

If the interest is so high in a WWI sim, which I am sure that it is...why not just make a new damn sim?

Think about pretty it could be with today's video cards.

I'm not so sure interest is that high, unfortunately. But for me, WW1 air combat is where the boys are truly seperated from the men; you don't get a more intense, unforgiving and lethal air-to-air scenario than WW1... Those thinking that the '39 is a tough but rewarding b!tch to fly should try out a Sopwith Camel, or a Fokker Dr.1, in RBII; now *those* were "pour hommes"... /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Well, I installed yesterday again Rb3d. Using the super patch and the promisse lands 1st 1. As well as campaign manager, new textures for moon, skies and terrain, and with a bunch of more realistci sounds. And of course with the dll from glidos, that allows my ti6400 to enable the glide.
And you know what??? Game is still fricking amazing.
If the Promisse lands Full canvas Jacket new addon, will do what they promisse, than this game got a brand new live again.
Now with this 1, Crimson skies, fs2004 and Il2/fb I think only need to wait for Lomac to be 100% happy.

Yeah it would be great! I am happy with Il2FBs campaign but was kinda surprised they didn't include any REB3 style newspaper headlines when an ace is shot down or a major battle takes place etc. maybe next time.

Period music & photos go a long way too...not complaining mind you just recalling how wonderful RB3 was when i first discovered it.

If you like diving straight down without taking your wings off. Or pulling up from same with the same result. If you like planes that still fly with your entire lower right wing missing. Or missing the entire upper wing.

If you like getting booted from a server when someone rides a flaming plane in. Or flying with some one who is running a speed hack.

If you like the fact that the only planes you fly are fighters. And that they all carry rockets and bombs. With no performance penalty. And almost every plane has the same amount of ammo.

If you like the fact that you can fly upside down all day.
And do the inverted climb. Or the Phalz DXII has a pilot head twice the size of any other. Or that by shooting the ambulance at an airfield you harden the target.

These are the joys of flying RB3d on line with NFM. Yes, there are many different FM/DMs for the game. But all the
popular servers fly out of the box. And yes there is a third party security prog you can use, (RSS). But it works only if the server uses it.


Other things. You will always have external views. If in range, you can get a contact. Get close enough and you can identify the plane. Even if you don't see it on the screen.

Yes you can use glidos, but you can get really low FPS in a furball. Or you can get a V2 or better card. With either one, hilt Alt-T, and your plane becomes invisible. Look left or right, see through wings. Look behind, see through tail. And you can't stop anyone from using it.

There is an invisible cockpit patch for DD graphics, but it isn't as good.

Before you order FCJ, I suggest you try one of the free ones. Hell's Angels is the easiest to use I think.

How do I know this? I play it alot. And I like it. The community is great.

This is just what you can expect on line. Off line, with FCJ, HA, or the Western Front Patch, it is a great game.

That would be the sim of my dreams. RB campaign was so much more fun than the FB one. I remember the emotion when you encountered the famous Flying Circus in a furious dogfight and shot down one of their aces. In FB campaign are too anonymous. :/

I've got a few questions for those who have bought 'Full Canvas Jacket' for RB3d.
Is the Bristol F2b Fighter flyable? If so, does the rear gunner fire at enemy aircraft?
It's my favourite WW1 aircraft and I'd love to fly her. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Please keep us updated on what it's realy like post patch.

I bought a cd of RB at the same time as IL2 - loaded it once and never bothered since - being far too busy with IL.

OK there's some flash sceenshots but I'd like to know the reality before shelling out $28.

Thanks in advance

Can't speak for RB3, but you can fly the F2b in WarBirds3. The game is actually called Dawn of Aces, which was the WW1 game using the WarBirds2 game engine. I don't think there is a DoA3 as such, but the WW1 ac have been included in the latest WB3 version and you can play WW1 online in a DoA arena.

The FMs were a bit inaccurate in the old DoA, for example the F2b was well known as about the best diver on the Western Front, but in game it was about the worst and easily broke up. I've played around with the new WB3 WW1 planes offline and it can now dive very well. They've redone the FMs for the WW1 ac.

The gunner will protect your 6 in WB3/DoA or you can jump in and man the Lewis yourself. If the gunner gets hit you can still jump back into the front cockpit. You can also get another human to be your gunner. I used to play DoA online, from time to time, and one of my most enjoyable trips was as the observer in a Biff with another guy driving. IIRC, you can also call in arty on enemy airfields from the obs position /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

************************************

Here's the link to the iEN site:

http://www.totalsims.com/index.php

Seems I might have been wrong about there being no new DoA game. Although the WW1 ac can be found in the WW2 game WarBirds3, it seems there is a DoA2 which looks like the old DoA in the new WarBirds3 engine. Presumably that is what you would need to fly online.

Anyway DeerHunter, if you'd like to fly the Bristol Fighter it would be worth your while looking there /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
