IL2FB is great, but my heart really lies in a Spad. I have never had as much fun with a flight sim as with 'Red Baron' back in the early nineties. Are there any good WW1 sims out now or in the works?

I own RB3D, but that is getting pretty long in the tooth.

Sadly enough, I didn't even discover it until 1996. I think it was already five years old then. I was also playing pirates and Xcom at the time. I think pirates was from 1987. I was in college at the time and the crap PC I had could only run old games.

Not so sure what is available at the moment.

"As weaponry, both were good, but in far different ways from each other. In a nutshell, I describe it this way: if the FW 190 was a sabre, the 109 was a florett, or foil, like that used in the precision art of fencing." - Gunther Rall

Look Noobie, we already told you, we don't have the Patch!

Red Baron II came out after Win 95 so it wasn't 5 years old at the time http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif. Nothing that I know of is out for WW1 except a really dumb arcade game, don't even remember what it is called. Knights over Europe looks like it will be the next good one.

You didn't ask about it, but I thought you'd like to know that Sid Meier is working on a sequel to Pirates!. Maybe you already knew that in which case I assume you must be as excited as I am.

Cheers and all that.

RB3D with the Full Canvas Jacket superpatch is basically like a whole new game. I had to dust it off, and I'm enjoying it again.

So how do you get this RB3J so you can download the mods?

If you can find one, the 'Combat Aces' addon for CFS2 is OK. It has problems with AI planes crashing due to host simulation not coping with low airspeed but is great fun on LAN with human opposition.

I have a copy of combat aces free to anyone in the UK. It's an add on to CFS2.

PM me if anyone is interested.

The Promised Land "Full Canvas Jacket" patch to Red Baron 3D really updates the old WWI workhorse. It was recently voted by one gaming magazine as their No 2 Flight Sim Of The Year behind FS2004.

Check out the screenshots section of the website to see what I'm talking about.

Nobody has mentioned Rowan Software's "Flying Corps" I really enjoyed this when it first came out in 97/98. Bought the original, then they released Flying Corps gold six months later (more Planes, other features etc) I didnt buy that initially, but then saw it had come out on the Xplosiv budget label for 5.99 bundled with Rowan's F/A-18 Korea, so I thought why not.... Graphics were good at the time although obviously will be a bit dated by today's standards. The Gold version has 3DFX OpenGL support (yes back when 3DFX was king!) and some form of Direct X support as well.

Dunno how well it will take to running on an XP box (if that's what you have) Last time I played FC was on my old P-90 running Win 98 (with one of the aforementioned 3DFX cards! - sadly now dismantled) I havent tried it on this machine, although I did try on my P2 with Win 2k (not much luck buut then that has a really cr@p graphics chip... hmm s'pose I could put the 3DFX card in and see what happens.....)

Might just have to try an install in a fit of nostalgia... whilst waiting for AEP. If only to see if it will run....

cheers

If you can find a copy Red Baron 3d it rocks. But to get it to rock takes some work, the game out of the box bites. Go to the Delphi forums and the SWWISA and Western Front forums and take a look, these forums are very active. The new DgVoodoo glide emulator makes the graphics for a 5 year old game nice. You can get it at http://people.delphiforums.com/Polovski/
It redirects calls to glide instead to direct X. IF you have a 2 gig of faster class processor the emulator DgVoodoo 1.2 will work well. Had to use a pair of Voodoo 2's in SLI mode on my olf Duron 1.2 gig machine. You will also need to download and use one of the Super Patches to get RB3d to have reasonable flight models and grahics. The Super Patch Full Canvas Jacket costs about $30.00 and is the easiest to use and looks great. I don't mind working to get Red Baron 3d to work well so I use the Western Front Patch, (Over 80 flyables) it's free but requires the use of a external file swapping program called campaign manager. Also if you are using Windows XP you need to get another program called XP_RB3d_start to keep the sound going in XP.
