Title: ATTENTION: Orange Wing (Rictus, Fish Bait, Fox)
Post by: Respenus on March 01, 2007, 12:19:07 PM
Acting second in command, I want all the ensigns and the captain to do the following things:

-Report in
-Change your pips
-Say Hi! to the Chief and send him your BIOs
-Post any ideas on what the mascot and name of aour wing should be

I'm taking initiative here, as Rictus hasn't visited in over a week and we need things to start rolling!
Title: Thanks Respenus

Hi all,

My Grandfather died which has shook up family a lot (esp my Mum) so apologies for no show.

Glad to see my EX-O is on the ball! Makes me feel like I've got the best squadron already!

To report my bits:

* I submitted my bio ages ago so that's me done.

* Pip change initiated.

* As to mascot/name, I have some ideas (esp since we're Orange Sqdrn) but I'd like to keep those to myself until I've heard yours. I want to encourage the input of all squadron members!

Additionally

Please can all squadron members also PM me with an email address and/or MSN Messenger contact (MSN optional) for organisational purposes.

Thanks

The Rictus

Title: CO request
Post by: The Rictus on March 02, 2007, 09:35:17 PM
OK Gents, a couple of things I'd like to get covered.

Firstly, I'd like to get photos of you all to put up on a squadron site. No 'fake' BSG pics, I'd like a portrait of each of us. I think it helps to see your wingmen and picture them in combat, not just a callsign. Think it'll help us gel. Once I've got all of your email addresses I'll email you all so you can reply.

Second. I'd like to get a clear breakdown of your skills. I intend to implement some checkrides for all of us (including me) and I don't want to treat you like idiots by telling you things you already know. It'll also let me play up our strengths and work on our weaknesses.

Nonetheless, I intend to go back to basics for all of us. Sounds like some of the 'real physics' tricks among other fun inclusions in BtRL could catch us all out. If we start from the ground up together we'll all be together on the bigger stuff.

Get some details up here soon please.

Its partially a matter of luck, some people just have beginners luck, others have not so much.

Not sure what's going on with you guys later today, but I'd be in the mood to host a freespace game and play for a bit (I'm on > T3, so hosting is not a problem) I was thinking about 2000 GMT or 1500 EST. It'd be an opportunity to fly together. Let me know.

Title: ATTENTION: Orange Wing (Rictus, Fish Bait, Fox)
Post by: KypFisto on March 08, 2007, 09:22:29 PM
I made a template for my squadron that everybody seems to have copied. Rictus has a variation on one I made for Sidewinder a while back. I based all of mine off of the original stuff that the Major and the other guys had when we first started out.

Like I said, I'd refrain from making sigs until you have an official patch to go with it.

Title: Orange Squadron Rule!
Post by: The Rictus on March 10, 2007, 07:00:45 PM
So say we all, EXO!

(I believe) we're the only squadron with a full compliment of pilots!

If not, we're one of the few that are. Well done guys, guess it's time to organise a squadron initial familiarisation session. We have an offer of a T3 to host games from, that beats anything I've got except my webserver and I don't really want to put FS2 on it...

So... the next request is for what times suit you all for a meet up? It'll need to be an evening of course, and for me after 7:30pm is preferable (The small person will be in bed by then).

Will be even nicer once we have BtRL demo available to use, but in the meantime we can use FS2, the tactics are essentially the same. I guess we'll have to leave out the missiles and stick to guns only :naughty:
Title: Communications
Post by: The Rictus on March 10, 2007, 07:13:51 PM
PS Are you guys all able to run xfire?

I have ventrilo on my server so we could use that for the short term. Guess we'll have to wait and see what direction the squadron as a whole takes for comms for the long haul...

If XFire is a go, say so here. If we all agree then I'll request a PM with your xfire names and distribute a list to all of us privately.
Title: ATTENTION: Orange Wing (Rictus, Fish Bait, Fox)
Post by: Cpt. Ritter on March 10, 2007, 07:44:34 PM
I do have Xfire, we'll worry about names later. Until the 18th I will not have access to the T3 connection (VACATION BABY), so I'll be unable to host at that time. I can still join most likely, though even then I will have limited access this week. Sorry about that.

I think we also need to establish which timezone we're in. I'm in Eastern US.

I'm GMT+1.

I don't have XFire and I can only plan on Fridays and Saturdays, if god allows and my parents are sound asleep.

I recommend we use FSOpen, as I don't have FS2 and everyone can download FSOpen easily.
Title: Weekend Army!
Post by: The Rictus on March 11, 2007, 01:09:22 PM
don't worry respenus, I think the rest of us are all talking weekends only atm.

Agreed, FS2open should be the standard. I've got both anyways. There's a really good java-based installer for FS2open now that downloads all files and updates any that are already there. Took a couple of days to complete on mine (some BIG files) but nice and simple.

Respenus: Can you get and run xfire? is free to register and works with any headset etc, no firewall config needed unless you've got a very serious system at home! If not I can offer an alternative but most work in the same way.

Let me know either way!
Title: ATTENTION: Orange Wing (Rictus, Fish Bait, Fox)
Post by: Cpt. Ritter on March 11, 2007, 05:16:16 PM
Besides, on most modern computers FS2 has any number of problems (text-glitch) to random crashes. FS2Open also has FS2NetD which works wonders for connecting to people.

I'm not exactly sure how we're gonna communicate through Xfire... I've only used it a bit. Also until I'm back on my T3, voice comm will most likely be impossible. (Especially while playing games) 128Kb vs T3... yeah...

Post by: Intrinsica on March 12, 2007, 11:26:53 AM
I'm not quite sure of the technical details of it all, so I can't really give a decent comparison, but I believe that xfire uses the same technology as Teamspeak when using voice communication. The advantage of xfire is that there is also the chat function, the ability to see who is online and who isn't, download files for your games using P2P technology, have in-game chat for those that don't have microphones, and a rather nifty function that allows you to just click on a friend and join the same server that they're on, rather than having to scroll through a list of servers trying to find the same one.

Just thought I'd throw in those points for those that didn't know.

I downloaded the demo this morning and had some trouble running it, I was in the process of trying to troubleshoot it when my computer's power supply effectively died. I'm currently on my second computer, which will not run FS2, but I hope to be back up by this weekend at the latest. I may have something that works in the meantime.

But I'd say tentatively, lets shoot for Saturday or Sunday maybe mid evening GMT. So that myself over here in EST can adapt.

This weekend is good for me - it's a long weekend here as it's Easter...

Sorry that Respenus can't come, RL takes priority always, no arguments. I for one will never criticise anyone for that.

However I'm sure Respenus will understand if I take our two ensigns out for a spin. I have a pretty decent connection and managed to host a game for a mate last night without any problems. So, let me know a good evening - Saturday is probably best for me...

So far, here's my prognosis on BtRL... I'm having extreme loading issues... (i.e. it takes a good ten minutes to load a level) so if you don't mind waiting, I'll be good. But other than that. I'm about to submit some stuff that will hopefully shed some light on the situation. I did play training though... you guys are all so cooked.

Have you tried extracting the files from the VP using VPView? Some people have reported that this fixed their insane load times.

I mean your dedication to the game is admirable but there's no way you can play online like that. You'll just drop connection after load.

Yep, thats what I ended up doing. After browsing through the forums a bit, I found that that was the solution. And it works beautifully now, no problems at all. I'm game from something either Friday or Saturday, I just need to know ahead of time.

I am also on T3 here, so I'll be more than willing to host. Computer can handle BtRL well too.

Looking forward to fishbait being a wingman, rather than an opponent! Gives me confidence in our squadron's ability to perform. Hopefully we can get our entire squadron out soon.

Shame there are no mission-based multiplayer levels available yet. all this dogfighting is ok, but a little tedious. Nice to have a purpose!

Post by: Cpt. Ritter on April 11, 2007, 03:28:08 AM
Yes, I also got called Scar in a later battle... even though I was still flying my MK VII, which begs the question, are we gonna be stuck in MKIIs, cause that's gonna throw a kink in my abilities. Dog fights work good to get everyone used to fighting as a team, even though the AI is inferior.

I've been playing around with the editor to make a mission multiplayer level, but first I've got to get it so the Clyons don't rape the mining ship in the first ten seconds... even with protect ship, all that good stuff, and attack orders on Blue... oh well, when I get time.

On a completely unrelated note and vaguely glory hogging... the commander needs to get his flying legs back under him.

If you take a look at BoaL (You'll need to use VPview to crack open the VP) you'll see that in the "Prevent Missile Spam" event I used a little trick to only unlock one raiders missiles at a time. Before I did that all 4 raiders just fired rockets at you at the same time.

That's not the issue... they almost completely ignore me and gun the mining ship to death. I've even tried setting it to unknown IFF status. I have the protect ship toggle on too. (Which in FS works very well to keep AI ships from attacking something.) Course I'll crack open the mission anyway... might help regardless.

As for the missiles, looks better to me if the Cylons are firing lots of missiles, not a problem for me to doge missiles.

Side note, I got all my VP's open to fix the loading times.

Hey Kara, surprisingly enough... the simple answer worked for certain. I thought I had set all the wing orders... go figure that I didn't. One group of raiders even had orders to blast the hell out of the mining ship. So that's one problem fixed, now to work on my text, and make it more compelling.

If your talking about gold then 3/4 of us are here. We can't seem to find a 4th thats active.

But chances are you probabbly meant orange instead of gold.

although i guess that's the wrong thread for mentioning it, i'd vote for having a european as that 4th member - seeing you and smoker are both from over the big pond, i'd like to have someone from my timezone :p

You'll have to ask Lightning. I don't appear to have the ability to hard-delete things, only make them unaccessable.

Rise and shine everyone, I'm now the new XO. What does that mean... well... it means that when the commander is not here, I'm here... and when's he's... oh nevermind. I'm looking at an Orange squadron training session, possibly this week sometime. PM with good times and I'll see what I can set up.

Good to see you're getting on to things, Fishbait. In fact, I would say that any member of a squadron, regardless of rank, always has the ability to suggest a training session. That said, technically there should be no other member of the 58th that reads this, except for Orange Squadron and perhaps Lightning and Gulo...maybe someone should say that this is the general idea of things?

Orange Wing, mobilize. I want you both to post your availability for the training session IMMEDIATELY. We are Sunday at 19GMT, and maybe others. I am in command for these because Rictus is out.

That is all.

I've been having some joystick problems, but I've got a stick so I'll be able to participate. So far though, it looks like it'll be just you and me Takashi.

Orange Wing, Training has been bumped up an hour. 1800 GMT instead of 1900 GMT. Please make note of this change.

Also, here is the format for training. (I spell checked it, so its modified)

I'll contact purple wing's command to see if they have a capable host.

Quote from: Lightning
1 hour max
45 min of training
15 min shoot out
each pilots score to be written down by the Captain in charge and sent to me
then the stats will be loaded onto wing website on a new page devoted to inter sqn comp.s

Takashi, training is still on for this afternoon, but I'm not going to be able to fly. My viper is spewing smoke on the hanger deck, and its smells of ATI and ASUS.

Basically, my computer is not running BtRL... or any other game. I'm trying to fix the problem, but its so far eluding me. I'll still be on the boards, and I'll still handle the admin duties. Look for Purple Squad's commander, feel free to even post on their boards since we're with them. Slamscape may be contacting you for help with training planning.

Sorry for the trouble.
