Apologies to all that last night was a bust; obviously there were a number of technical issues, many of which that were no one persons fault,  but considering it took 40 minutes to get from server up

VICTORY IS MINE!!!!  Or, more accurately, victories are now FTs and Reggies.  Only took four hours.     I will complete the forum debrief when I have re-invigorated my stocks of gi

Debrief 410th BG What started as a flight of four A20s soon became a flight of three as unfortunately Sheriff encountered a recurring technical issue that prevents him from moving beyond the hang

Could it be something to do with me/my pooter? It seems that anytime I take part the mission fails but the one time I miss (last Sunday) it all works fine...:dontknow:

Just as unlikely.

This time, I think it's all down to having no claims at all ... but in the end, I do not know really.

Could be anything... too bad we can't blame Sweper though ... or, can we? :shaunv2:

Would there be a way of manually imputing results based on results given in game when you finish mission, that way folk would get credit nfor successful mission, I know it's not quite what was planned and might be a bit of work but just a thought

Personally I think this is hilarious, 3 ops in with you guys and I still technically don't exist - or at least haven't achieved anything at all, and I am usually such a high achiever, cough cough.😉

Basically, Fen does put the claims into the PWCG software manually... and after acknowledging the claims, PWCG starts reading the log files... and then often it gets a fit, as it runs into something in the log file it cannot handle ... yet. In theory, the database could be edited manually, but as we do a not even have a clue where that database is, let alone how to access it and change the data in the proper way... Good idea, but ... No.

Yes but fen used the pwcg to confirm kills, can we not just go on the in game generated results to confirm results and use these to update tally board until the issues are resolved, that way people would get credit due .

As I understand it Dave, unless PWCG is able to process the file, we (OK, Tom) cannot generate the next mission in the sequence so while a manual tally board is an option, if the import fails then we're flying the same mission next time anyway.

Congrats to Arjen on his first Gong!  Despite encountering heavy enemy fighter opposition prior to RV with the RAF Mitchells he and his squadron were assigned to escort, Lt Efftee led and organised his squadron with great decisiveness and they downed many e/a before racing to catch the heavies under their charge, escorting them to a successful drop on  their target.

2nd Lt. Casey Baker miraculously survived a head on collision with a Fw 190A-8. Knocked completely unconscious and trapped in the falling wreckage Baker had a million-to-one shot when remains of his aircraft hit the steep slope of a tall river bank and slid into a muddy, silty bog at the bottom. He was rescued by friendly ground troops and taken to a nearby aid station. Apart from a light concussion he suffered no further injury! Some one get that guy a lottery ticket!

2nd Lt. Zook aborted due to technical issues with his a/c but not before claiming a Bf-110.

2nd Lt. Funflaque again aborted due to technical issues with his a/c but made it safely home.

Congrats to 485th for their victories.

After further discussion with 9th AF HQ, Group have decided that if whilst on air patrol near the frontlines, should a squadron see little or no enemy air activity after 20-30 minutes on station squadrons are free to expand their search area and also search out and attack enemy ground targets - but only if identification of targets as enemy is absolutely unequivocal.  It will be left to the squadron commanders discretion, with the forces he has available and availability of suitable targets as to how this is carried out, but group recommend leaving at least one flight high as cover in case our Luftwaffe friends decide to show up late.

Next mission on the board is October 12th 1944. (To be hosted Tuesday 18th August.)

I will never miss another Sunday Mass; It's a Miracle!

Well done chaps, glad you made a success of it whilst I sipped on muddy bog juice.

just to make sure can Jabo change his name to no longer than the current regular flying name?

perhaps to either prove or disprove how about we run a "test night" where jabo goes back to his longer name (or we create one similar) to test ?

Painless's persona has 15 characters; Jabo's has 18. I'm wondering if there's a 16 character limit? That's a very computer value...

I think I might be able to manually dig out the file which constitutes the user database and manually edit Nick's name; make him Bertie or Bert rather than Bertrand, see if that works.
