58th Viper Air wing: The White Knights / New Header Idea
« on: May 09, 2007, 01:54:39 AM »
I think the confusion is coming from the website. The 58th's mascot, as Hawkie envisioned it, was a White Knight. I sent Lightning a logo for the entire squad, per my final assignment before my resignation, which has mistakenly been put up as White Wing's logo. That's my fault for not specifying when I posted the thing.

Tmp2 / Is The Starboard Hangar Deck Ever Going To Get Fixed?

He recognized the tail numbering. He probably flew it exclusively near the end of his fighter pilot career.

Yep. It's already in. As is the Cylon nuke.

You can see the former in BoaL if you're being naughty actually. Optic carry bombs. Of course most people haven't triggered Optic's arrival in that mission. :)

So why, when I play with the missions I've quickly FREDded to see said nuke in action is there no spectacular explosion? What am I doing wrong?

Tmp2 / Frames per second(FPS) drop down problem

It just doesn't preload any of the models. So the first time it shows up on-screen it has to load RIGHT then.

I'd give that explanation if it were X-Wing Alliance, but it's not. That's strange... isn't there an option somewhere to preload everything before the mission loads?

BTW, this should prolly go in the BTRL Tech Support section.

Check the listings, miles. He's up top for Blue.

If you're looking at the original Gold Wing logo, all I did to make that one was open it in Photoshop, Find Outlines, played with the levels to get rid of some of the more insignificant lines, and colorized it gold. Very simple.

Here are some fan-made improvements to hangars in the X-wing Alliance Star Wars space combat sim. I am pretty sure you can't actually fly in these hangars, or if you can, there is very little physics to it, it's just like flying in a giant box with things you can hit, but no real landing/take-off, hangar flight physics.

Actually... those hangars only showed while the ship was taking off/landing. The actual hangar you saw while flying wasn't NEARLY that big and had NOWHERE near that much detail. You just got close, hit Spacebar and were done.

If you shop around and are vaguely computer savvy, you can build your own, for around the same price, with better specs. It WILL take some hunting, and you'll need to do some research, but my comp I'm working on right now has lasted me the past two years and I'm still running things on fairly high quality. If you can recycle parts from older comps (HDDs, CD/DVD drives, etc), you can build a pretty zippy little bugger for about $500.

I don't have a transcript, but they DID note that BTRL was his fav. game out of all the games they played. :D

58th Viper Air wing: The White Knights / ATTN: 58th Viper Wing

This is Captain Eclipse with some news that will affect our ranks in (hopefully) a minor way. Due to increasing responsibilities in the real world and some rather life-changing events, I must resign from the 58th.

I'd like to appoint Soldier to take my place as Captain of White Wing, effective immediately, barring any complaints from the rest of my wing or the other captains. We've not heard back from Ghost in a good long while, so I think it's safe to say (IMO, at least) congratulations, Soldier, on the promotion. I make this decision based on his willingness to stick to the wing despite the ups and downs we've had. He's a good pilot, too, the few times we've flown together. He'll do fine in my place, again, if there are no complaints.

I'm sorry, Major, for not informing you of this previous to this, but the fact is I can't turn away from certain things any longer like I thought I could.

I do, however, have one last assignment given to me by Major Lightning: The new logo for the wing. I don't have the individual Squad patches made up, and it does not appear that I will have time to make them up. I apologize, but real life issues must take priority. However, pending the Major's approval, here is your new patch.

Eclipse, signing off.

We don't do pirating here; the forum could get shut down if we post links or directions.

Sorry, just the way it is. You'll want to try somewhere else.

Heh... my bad. Funny that three of us posted at the same time; I didn't see the other posts after Starslayer's as I was writing... :P

If you open the BeyondtheRedLine file (it's the file you SHOULD have had to use first before launching the game...), under the Video tab should be what you're looking for.

That's how it works on a Windows machine; hope this helps. :)

Tmp2 / Flight control questions
« on: April 12, 2007, 04:35:06 PM »
Whichever conflicting control you have selected at that point will delete the OTHER control. So if you've got the Hat Left assigned to left thruster, and it is conflicting with something else, just select the left thruster and click "Clear conflicts". It will leave it on left thruster and delete it from the other control.
