Hey Wayno - meant to post something.  I will try to get the campaign reset and configured for phase 2 this weekend. If all goes well we should be able to start next Friday, the 10th.  I’ll let Tai know once I’ve completed the tasks and he can send an all hands email.

Hey Guys, Just a quick update on my flight status. I should be there for the start of the next Phase 2 for at least the 1st two missions, if my back pain allows. Doctors have informed me I will be going under the knife on Nov. 16th. Three to four days in the hospital and afterwards my availability will be up in the air, dependant on how well my recovery goes.

So much for our beloved XO not giving me permission to have surgery, and dictating that the cortisone shots will work  ::).

Guess I will be seeing the Sgt. Major soon regarding my pending AWOL status  :-[

I reset the campaign and tweaked the AI aircraft files so that now the Blue side will have the majority instead of the Red side.  I've swapped all pilots to their opposing/phase 2 sides, and the commanders are set up on the opposing/phase 2 side now.

I've backed up the campaign files, so if you want to have a test mission tomorrow (or maybe two 90 minute ones), it should be good to go.  Then we can go live on Friday if it checks out.

Thanks Rel!
Don't worry Grey, we can hold off on the Court Martial until the MO clears you!

Cheers

Yeah! We want Greywolf to be in the best possible shape when we throw him into the dungeon to let him start slowly rotting away.

That's what I like most about being a member of this squadron. Compassion!!

Hmmmmm.....Interesting!! Taipan, are we looking to throw Jericho in the clink, shoot him at dawn and then prosecute him for AWOL like we are planning for Greywolf??

Let me know, so I can polish up more bullets for the event.

@Jer - rgr that, I don't think anyone was bombing factories anyway.

@all - I've reset the campaign and the log files, so the campaign is good to go for phase 2 on Friday.  Commanders, let me know if you have any issues, but you should be able make/save your changes.

Jer, Thanks for the thoughts and best wishes. I will fill you in on how it goes and any problems that develop.

Gos, Seriously ........... You want me in the best shape before you toss me in the brig to rot. What a compassionate and thoughtful bird your are!!!!!  When I get through with this and get a clean slate from the MO I will make it my mission to pluck tail feathers from your hind end every chance I get.  ;D

Nah!!
I've just been sipping on a wee bit of Johnny Walker Red Label fortuitously left at my nest recently.
Apparently there is no massive muscle or other organ matter in the cranium here that can absorb the fiery liquid so I must wait for it to be absorbed into the tissues down below. Hopefully, gravity will take its sweet time in that process, as things look quite pleasant through these rose-colored eyeballs.

Hey, guys. Has anyone tried flying on the =AVG= online campaign server?

http://www.virtualaces.net/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=0&t=5293 (http://www.virtualaces.net/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=0&t=5293)

They use the same version of IL-2 we do and since it appears we will lose the services of both Scorp and Relent to the more modern sims, we could always try our hand at checking this out. I'm going to try and fly on it today to see if it has any chance of replacing our current campaign scenarios and will report back. It is apparently up 24/7 but that's all I know.

I haven’t tried this server, but it looks like it would be something good for IL2/46 participants.

I haven’t stopped supporting IL2/46 yet, as I was planning on working on the Okinawa campaign soon; hopefully with Tai so I could show him how it’s set up.  However, that said, if you found an alternative server for campaigns and it alleviated the need for me to create these campaigns, I wouldn’t object ;).

Speaking of the next campaign - is this going to be human vs human, or human vs AI+3 human again?

I was hoping to continue the upcoming campaign as planned and hope to be able to determine the reasonability of the AVG campaign server over a period of time to see how well it is handled. Please keep the plans to do the Pacific campaign as we are hoping to have. Don't know how it's going to be done for sure, but I anticipate a drawing of names from hat for sides, or using the past campaign results to determine sides. We need to try as much as possible to keep the sides even, OR have all AI on one side, IMHO.
