#5168333 Fifi !!!

Posted by Old Guy on 26 July 2014 - 02:16 PM

A B-29 flew over Fort Collins twice this morning.  There is an airshow at a local airport featuring Fifi and a C-45 called Bucket of Bolts.


I heard the rumble of engines and walked to where I could see the sky better.  And there she came, no more than 5,000 AGL, heading north.  About 20 minutes later she flew over again, this time from east to west.


About an hour later I saw a C-45 in military colors.

No, Joker, you're not naive to believe in the US of A! I do, too, but I'm not so sure of its Politicians and some of the inhabitants! Perhaps sheer common sense will win the day, but we may have to eat a lot of humble pie first.

So sorry to hear that, Donnie. I had to put my sweetheart Border Collie, Mindy, down about 8 months ago, due to arthritis and age, and I think I'm only now getting over it, with the help of the craziest little Malti-Poo, Missie, you ever saw! I swear that God gave us dogs to smooth out the bumps in life! Never forget that "DOG" spelt backwards is "GOD!"

#5165258 Time for a walk down Memory Lane!

Aces of the Pacific.  Now that there was a game.  I agree with Joker.  Somebody needs to update that puppy.  The campaign mode was awesome.  You could fly in all three branches of the US military and Imperial Japanese Navy and Army.  I remember flying with 214 the day Boyington was shot down.  Left flying 2nd element lead with him as flight leader.  My wingman and I were the only ones what made it back.  Lost Boyington in a cloud with him on one and one closing on him.  I went down to help, nothing but one Zeke climbing up and away.  I landed and pulled out a book on Greg and sure enough, compared the dates and there it was. 


Red Baron was a hoot to.  Flying your ass off to get that invite to one of the premo squadrons, getting that note from an enemy ace wanting to duel.  I went up once after an invite from Lothar, the Baron's brother.  Meet him alone over the front he says.  Duel between the two of us he says.  Then brings two of his closest friends to apparently "witness" th duel.  Bastard.

#5165112 Time for a walk down Memory Lane!

Posted by cobraj on 06 March 2014 - 09:06 AM

Remember flying a long campaign in Aces of the pacific, I was an ace many times over and I was flying around Like i'm all that and a bag of chips, No AI pilot is gonna get me , then one mission I end up in a battle with a lone Zero who proceeds to hand me my ass quite handily! I remember as I was going down what flashed on the screen "You have been shot down by Nishizawa"




I swore I heard him giggling as I went down in an uncontrolled spin! I was thinking well played Dynamix, well played! clipped my ears back!

He had once boasted He would never be brought down in combat by American fighters and he was right, He ended up dying at the controls of an unarmed transport, ambushed by hellcats...

#5164627 Maybe IL-2 ??

Posted by Old Guy on 18 February 2014 - 10:35 PM

Downloaded IL-2 1946 today.  Took me some time to get it working right.  Had to switch the video to DirectX.  Right now I'm running 1600x900 32 bit and the game looks and operates very well.


Still have to work on some stick settings.  Also, I've got to learn a whole bunch of commands, from the looks of it.

I don't know for sure, Stans.  You've died in gory fashion is SO many tales.  :)



#5164578 Jim's updated website

I'll be replacing the site with something much better later on.  I have to brush up on my HTML and learn a bit more CSS before I go too far.


Never too old to learn stuff, I guess.

I think I'll be Japanese for a while.  At least I can fly better junk.

Posted by Old Guy on 15 February 2014 - 07:35 PM

Got my stick problems mostly sorted out.  Turned out all the fiddling I was doing was wasted.  The default "joystick" is evidently a mouse and keyboard, even though I specified a joystick when I first got on board.  Anyhow, I reset it to my real stick and things are a lot better.  Still not happy with some of the views, but now that I have the right stick to work on, it should get better.


Words of wisdom:  Don't tangle with a flak cannon -- at least not in a Buffalo.

My step-son, that is.  After dating a truly wonderful young lady for well over a year, tonight, February 14, 2014, he asked her to be his wife.  She accepted his offer!  After months of seemingly endless bad news, we finally have something to celebrate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
