Report 06:45:00 Day One: My first mission was a 2x2 CAP mission, The other flight was a pair of F16's. I got a directive to takeout some bandits 115 miles away and then immediately told to skip it. However the 2 x F16 proceeded and got shot down. I had an uneventful flight, picked up my 45 points towards promotion but was told I had been demoted ..... :(

What am I doing wrong to upset the Brig. Gen. so much?

Report 07:30:00 Day One: Second mission 2x2 CAP mission. Other flight a pair of FA18's. Edited the the WP's to get closer to the coast and the border. Quite a bit of action but all taken care of as I arrived. Got directed again to engage by the AWACS but again told to skip it. I ignored it this time, although as it turned out I wasn't needed. We all go home safely and mission goals completed successfully. No comment from Brig. Gen. Battie on my return so that's something. Up to 101 promotional points. Current pilot status as follows:

This is all a bit new to me. Well its 10 years since I flew any serious campaigns. Even then I never saved my pilot details which I am now regretting. However it won't hurt to work through it all again with hopefully some tips from the forum.

Report 08:00:00 Day One: BLOODY HELL!!! All hells broken out. Bandit everywhere. Took control of an AWACS and jumped into F22's to give a hand. Had to hit the PAUSE button to get a coffee break. :( But we've fended them off ....... for the moment ........ :unsure: Up to 161 promotion points, so guess I'm not having much influence.

Wombat,

You may want to hold off on Scimitar for a few days. I found a bug in how I did the campaign win/lose files, so the existing version will read off the wrong debrief at the end of the campaign.

I need to switch Scimitar to taw11 instead of taw12, which will happen in the next release (beta in your case).

EDIT: Scratch that! I have a theory you can test. More details to follow in PM.

Also, how did you start Scimitar if you're only level 1, or were you a level 5 with no score prior to starting the campaign (which explains the demotion)?

Dang. How did you manage that? Using the "cheat" profile actually gives you 150000 points.

Ha ...... don't remember ...... some tip you gave me I think to get started on AS when I'm only level 1.

EDIT: (See the edit on my previous post)

Report 08:10:00 Day One: It is of note that I have not progressed much further: one AWACS mission which netted me 30 points. This after a mission where I was taken out (sorry ..... too embarrassing to say other than I'm sure I wasn't that close to the ground as I went defensive ..... :( ). But on hitting E (End Mission) I got a CDT. And its just happened again on doing an emergency landing unsuccessfully. :angry: The second occurrence particularly annoying as up to my unsuccessful crash landing I had been "knocking them dead". It made no matter, as I was dead anyway, but next time I might get down successfully. In both instants of the CDT, I initiated to end the mission. In all other cases the game has initiated to end the mission at their successful completion. If that means anything.

Report 08:00:00 Day One: Yes ...... going back in time due to the CDT's. Set up a F22 CAP mission flying through the AWACS. With my wingman we kept taking out wave after wave of approaching enemy aircraft. We constantly refuels and rearmed (up to at least 3 times with 4 R's, 10 C's and 2 heaters each time) Called it a day after 32 mins. I GOT JUST 20 POINTS! :(

Back at the War Room a scramble mission came up. I elbowed my way to the front of the queuing of volunteers, kissed Brig. Gen. Battie on his boots :icon_bow: and climbed aboard.

I/we took out the 4 (T's) (99 points) and 6 others for good measure (75 points). When we go back, Battie, sorry the Brig. Gen., was so impress he gave me a medal! I now have 355 points and 2 medals. :nana:

The Brig. is still not happy though. Some say its because he's tired of getting under his desk when those enemy Floggers get a bit too close .... :lol3:

Another thought, Wombat.

If you were able to start another campaign, that means that you somehow have a level 5 pilot. Can you please take a screenshot of your Campaign Select GUI with both Avenging Scimitar and your Pilot displayed like so:

Bloody Hell!!!

Yes Sir! Please stand by ........ ;)

Wombat,

I just created a new pilot and copied the level 5 pilot (logfile.dat in the !ADP\cheats folder) to the new player folder. This is what a brand new level 5 pilot should look like:

You start with a score of 100,000, with no kills, no medals (take note, mikew <_<), and no flight hours. I'm not sure how you started out with a score so high it rolled over, but we discussed how to work around it. We'll test it with you and make it a standard procedure for everybody else in the next release.

Just to continue my experiences with the public beta release of Avenging Scimitar (AS). Some are more generic in nature and don't necessarily only apply to AS. But that's where I came across most of them so it seems appropriate to raise them here. I'm putting them in a question format, so hopefully I'll get many replies. I know ....... I could "read the f'ing manual", but that's boring ....... ;)

1. What's the "Racetrack"?

2. With support packages to my flight, how do I determine if they need extra fuel?

3. I lost my AWACS after about 7 hours into the campaign.

...........should I have been more protective?

...........will I eventually get a replacement?

4. Why am I not allowed to edit my flight package?

5. To successfully knock out C4 targets I need to be more involved.

..........so why aren't there more Strike mission between the 6 and 10 hour mark of the campaign?

..........and why are there so many level 2, easy to complete, CAP missions during the same time?

6. What are the little coloured squares on the map, next to the target, meant to indicate?

7. Why, in some instances, can I not select extra fuel for say an F16 Strike group when for the F16 Escort group, in the same mission, I can?

8. Sometimes, when the sun is at my 12 o'clock, the sun glare is so bad I have difficulty seeing my MFD's.

..........is this normal for all players?

..........can it be reduced?

9. When you drop AG stores (if in a tight situation and your attempting to escape), is it to make you more stealthy or increase your speed or both?

10.External stores are nice to have but at the expense of reduced stealth.

.........is it in order to fire them off when and if you need extra stealth, rather than not to load them initially?

11.Sometime in a strike mission on a enemy airbase, the base has huge AA resources sitting on the ground.

.........why don't they scramble rather than sit there like lame ducks? [or do they have a shortage of pilots ;)]

Thank you.
