  1. Could it be related to other software running? For keys/controllers? SweetFX overlays? (just guessing here...)
  2. Have created our own 'BlitzWatchDog' for the server, so it re-launches Blitz whenever it stops, or whenever the server gets restarted. Not sure whether it all works okay, as well, testing a situation that occurs once in 6 hours is kinda taking a while... Mind you: Our server hás been upgraded, and it cannot be used by any 4.312 version clients! Just to be very and extra clear: This BlitzWatchdog' is a server-side utility, got nothing to do with you clients. Try and reach out to me whenever you got issues connecting, ie. when our Blitz server is not online.
  3. Our Server is in the process of being upgraded as well It's running at the moment, but that will be over and done with in a few hours. Will fix that in a few days. I hope. Oh well. It's all nice, and good!
  4. IL-2 GBS Resources

    IL2MG - IL2-Mission Generator It's a download, zip file, extract it somewhere, point it to IL2 executable, and you can generate missions. I'm not yet sure what it exactly does, or how it works. People appear to be happy about it though ...
  5. Hello fellow flyers!

    Sean, I've granted you access to the place where our Teamspeak information is stored: TeamSpeak server info This way, you can talk to you, and you can talk to us. On the main forum page there's an overview of the TS servers, who's active in there. Sunday evenings we are on, flying the old IL2 1946. We are looking into getting us a true BoX evening, could be Tuesdays (also 1946 at the moment) On Thursday's we are active with Cliffs of Dover. I might be on TS Sunday sometime during the day ...
  6. Good fun. First, the negative stuff, kinda bugs me that: - GUI background sound : all that is just annoying me. Even after you finish the mission, you can still here engine sounds and guns firing... yuck. - In Cockpit sound is way too windy, like the canopy is still open. - Trim cannot be assigned to a slider. What dó I like? - Yeah, it flies! Some stuff is for sure different, and not sure here - but I did think of this article on FB that BluBear posted, on flying the IL2: It being weird on Pitch - dependant on throttle and RPM settings... Yes, it does unexpected things - just by throttling back I managed to loose 500 Meters of altitude where I did not really notice - Killing ground stuff works, and AA is deadly. Flew around on the NewWings server, and some the ground targets there were really hidden in trees, so you could not really see them and have an easy attack run. Also shot at a friendly aircraft ... never expected any of them there where I was attacking, WingFlyr had already been hit by AA and smokin', and I mistook a P40 for a 190 ... oops. That server was quick to point it out to me. Bit silly, as I think it should not do that. There's some more "silly"(IMO) rules on that server, should you click on a Blue base in error, then switch to Red, you get a Penalty of 30 seconds because you switched sides. WFT? Oh well... Not too bad, but it really gives it that gamey feeling, same as the 'Unlocks' - If you take bombs/rocketsin the IL2, yes, you need to click on 'Unlocks'... Oh well. Still, could be good fun for all of us ... Here's me after a not so successful take off, too much fuel, too short a runway. Please do note, trees do have a collision model here. (Eh, maybe not this specific tree, but it's not like CloD of 1946 (Sauf Oleg Trees) where you can just fly through them. I think I got lucky in this one.
  7. Hello fellow flyers!

    Hello! Welcome here!!
  8. Arthur: Lol. The things you mention there, yeah, I've had those thoughts as well... (But, could I maybe circumvent the start ME, close ME, fire up Game, Close Game, start ME - Cycle by using two computers, where they be sharing the same missions folder? ) (Yeah, you can tell, that even thinking about mission building in BoX makes me lose it all togehterrWWER12edqwfllkwlker !!!qsklkleq$2245624###) b ==== b klk
  9. Yesterday, Fenrir had a nice idea to do some thing different when CloD-ing on our server. Gather five to six pilots in the same aircraft, take off together and try some formation flying... Looked like we took the wrong base, at the wrong time(s). Hawkinge. Spitfire IA. Fen and me at the start of the runway ready for take off. Others taxing towards take off. Yeah. Bang Bang goes the AA... Bandits, low level. lol. Scramble! Next try, Lympne, Hurricanes. You guessed it: same shift happening! Now we already have implemented the season change on the server, thanks to BluBear... (Though somehow, magically, at Thursdays around 20:00 GMT, it's always summer!) Any ways, what's my point here? * What other good ideas can we come up with to add to the fun we are having on the server? * Not specifically looking for missions where programming is concerned, though they are welcome...
  10. Yes, in a group. Good one. Could go fly blue as well ...
  11. Have built plenty of missions for 1946, some for CloD. None for BoX though. Have read about the ME, have opened it once. I just need to get the hang of it... maybe, if my brain can handle that So, please do share missions. (I'd like to see some very simple ones. With lots of explanation ... ) Some easy pointers maybe, the relevant stuff? (Like I've read one should not rename any mission files... or be very careful in doing that)...
  12. Whay are the Announcments blocked?

    Hm, I thought this was fixed a few weeks ago? ... Oh well, we'll see... it's not like it's the end of the shift.
  13. We need to talk...

    So, yes, we do need new members. How are we going to get them? We should make a concentrated effort, and properly prepare it. What about: (just thinkin' out loud here) - A 'team' of recruiters that will set it up. Two or three members? - We need a new, fresh web page for that, where people can easily "sign up". (What we have now is too old/stale/long - as far as I can tell ... lol). - Properly describe our group, announcing what we fly, when and where. And our spirit(s). - Mentioning our 'events' (which are those?) If/when we start recruiting actively, we do need to make sure what we offer/announce is true to what we deliver. /can deliver We need to be ready. Meaning, if we get someone interested, and he/she clicks on a link, reads something, and tries and contact us - response should be swift and accurate. Sign up procedure should be easy - not too cumbersome. (I really dunno whát the current sign up is though...) Like said, just some ideas. Should we create a new thread, in maybe a less public place to discuss this all? That is - if my ideas on this are valid and being supported by us all
  14. Coming back to the kennel!

    We do not have a 1946 DF server running 24/7 any more. But, I just fired it back up for you: df.dangerdogz.com is the address. Just connected to it, it is up... (Got some horrible FPS, but that might just be me...)
  15. Yeah, I know it's not about points, but I finally got over 20 kills in one session - without getting killed, without crash landing - well, one burst tire
  16. Coming back to the kennel!

    Oh wait, is this during downloading the files?
  17. Coming back to the kennel!

    Hm, can you post a screenshot of that ChkMods 88% up in here? Really weird!
  18. Coming back to the kennel!

    Nearly current. We are on HSFX 7.03 at the moment. Two ways to upgrade: Download and apply the patch here: link (7.0 to 7.03) Or run ChkMods. Link to download Welcome back!

  20. BoX rough and ready set up guide

    No, not a chance! I've pinned it. Basically the same result, yet it's not a sticky, it's a pinny ...
  21. New Game Launcher, New Set Up

    To me it sounds as if BoS is trying to access a site/address on the internet to do some checks - like your account/password - which somehow fires up Chrome. (Like if you just type http://dangerdogz.com in the search box and press enter, the default browser - in your case Chrome - will be started.) Now whether BoS is the culprit, or your Chrome? One tends to think the latter, as this is rather unique behavior Was there any address in the browsers tab? (Not looking for site content - there is none) If it continues, you could try this: If you go to chrome://settings then "Show Advanced Settings" there is a section for Downloads and a button for "Clear auto-opening settings" (Could still have a different cause)
  22. Here's an overview on how our Cliffs Of Dover server 'works', ie. what's happening on it. If you have any issues with the server, remarks, questions, ideas or suggestions, put them in this thread, or PM me and/or Fruitbat. - One single mission is running over three hours (Increased from two hours, on July 31st 2014) - After three hours, the CloD server program is being restarted. Be careful, because you will then have to disconnect, and wait a few minutes before re-joining. - In this single mission, several pre-programmed waves of aircraft (mostly blue bombers) will appear on fixed timings, ie. in each three hour run, the pre-programmed flights will show up at the same time as in the previous run. Newly added: CloD Random AC Loader - Over the time time the mission is running, at intervals in between 20 and 40 minutes (randomly determined) one of seven (randomly determined) different pre-programmed flights of some type of aircraft will be spawned in. After one flight is spawned in, the interval for the next one is determined. Once the interval has passed, the next one of the seven flights will be spawned in. And so on. (So, yes, it is so very random that it is possible the same flight will be spawned in twice in a row. Or three times even... This is being realized by a separately programmed utility. I'm pretty sure it can be done within CloD's scripting engine, but I would not know how) Note: As of July 30th 2014, our Clod Server is running on a new box. It is different in setup, and it might show some issues, mainly when it is time to relaunch the mission, after the three hours have passed. The name of the server is the same as it was, as is the password, so from client perspective, connecting to the server is still the same as it used to be. Euro pilots will experience higher pings (from 30's to 90's) and NA pilots may experience lower pings (from 180's down to 90's) Future: After hearing about the 'CloD Random AC Loader', Fenrir suggested to remove all pre-programmed flights from the mission completely, and have them all spawn in via the random method described above. Now, that's a brilliant idea, and I'd like to follow up on it, however I do not have a clue yet on how to realise that. Maybe I can figure it out quickly, or maybe Fruitbat can help? Anyways, all this just for your information, and hopefully you all will have some fun with it! As of Aug 1st 2014: - Base map, emptied of all AI aircraft will run in three hour sessions. - The CRAL (Clod Random Ac Loader) will randomly launch aircraft/flights out of the following series: 1. 109's Northsee to Manston 2. D017-109's Ambleteuse to Folkstone 3. HE111-109 Oye Plage to Manston 4. Stuka-110 Framzelle to Dover 5. Wellington-Hurricane to France 6. 109's-From-Thames-To-Audembert 7. 110-Attack-Southampton 8. Spits-Folkstone-To-Manston-Channel 9. Blenheims-Beaufighters-Attack-Shipping 10. 109a.mis 11. do17.mis More may be added later on and/or removed.
  23. We need to talk...

    DangerWingz? WalkerDogz? DogzWings? DogzWalkerDangerWingz?
  24. Yeah, well, kinda brilliant Winter map at 8 in the morning. Please do note the comment at right hand top of the screen.
