  1. A fitting end

    >S< My duties as CO have been given to BlackC5.  He will do with the position as he sees fit. I will check in on the forums from time to time to see how everyone is doing. May this game become what it could be.  May the infighting between servers be appeased and everyone share knowledge. I have pulled the screws out of my G940 mounts.  They have been placed back into their original Styrofoam packing and moved to storage. I will place updates of what I'm doing on my Youtube channel "jg51ogg".  It will consist mainly of what I do at hunting camp.  The preparation for the upcoming Black Bear season, as well as White tail deer, and Coyote. This is the last video I plan on producing for the WarbirdsOfPrey youtube channel covering my final login for the game.  It's 33 minutes long, but a fitting ending arrives. It's been a great time getting to know you and watch you grow as people outside the game. >S<  
  2. >S< Everyone I have thought about this for a long time now and I just cannot put it into words that are eloquent. But here goes, I started Playing flight sims back in 1996.  Throughout the time I have played not too many of them. AirWarrior1, AirWarrior2, AirWarrior3, Janes ATF, WWIIOL (BattleGroundEurope), Aces High, Rise of flight, BOS, and here in Cliffs of Dover. 20 years of flight virtually.  I started out with a stick that had a trigger and 3 buttons and a 15 inch monitor for AirWarrior, for comms I had a headset monitor with a microphone taped to it  running RogerWilco. The machine was a beast with an 80386 chipset and 16 Meg of RAM, a sound blaster sound card with joystick port, and for video a AMD card.  Not even sure what the card was. and for storage I had a super huge 256 Megabyte Hard Drive that when the machine started up sounded like it was going to launch itself into space. Over the years that has progressed into the Rig I run now TrackIR, TeamSpeak, 5.1 surround sound headset, Logitech G940 HOTAS with Rudder pedals, and a 32 inch monitor.  The last beast built is a Intel 7700 Skylake 4.2Gh with 32 Gig of RAM 10 TeraByte of Storage, M.2 Primary drive, and well you know the rest if you can read my sig. As I sit here and ponder life at 55 I have some real life things that need to be done and worrying about a game is the least of them. First thing that brought my attention to focus was my Cardiac condition (Not a Heart attack Per Se) which gave me focus as to how short life really is.  I am currently stagnated with the weight loss and need to recommit to the things that helped me lose 100 pounds.  I had fallen back into the rut of ordering a small pizza on Saturdays and it grew into more now.  I have to go back t Fish, Chicken, and Lean Pork with 2-3 vegetables and a small salad for lunches and dinners.  I need to start eating breakfast again and I really hate eggs but I have to have one a day.  I still have another 150 to go until I'm ready to say I did it well.  I also have to recommit to exercising.  Driving a truck professionally is the last thing from being able to get any exercise.  See how long you can last doing the following.  Go out and sit in your car or pickup, or whatever is the most comfortable vehicle you own.  Have a seat in the drivers seat, put both hands on the steering wheel, and hols that position for 6 hours then start your car and drive to the gas station.  Get out put gas in your car and pull ahead to the building.  Get out and do something there for 30 minutes.  Get back in your vehicle and drive home and continue to sit there for another 4 hours.  Then you can go inside and exercise, make your dinner ETC.  Not bitching it's just what the life of a Professional Truck Driver is like.  It's what I chose to do. I never really knew my daughter as she grew up because mom realized at that time she got pregnant I was a HUGE ass monkey.  I did take care of her monetarily without the help of the courts, but for the sake of stability in her life I was just a shadow on the wall.  Other than her I have no kids and since she at age 25 still doesn't like men and has a committed relationship with another woman I doubt I'll ever have grand-kids.  I do however have nephews and nieces who have kids and Uncle Chuck is the Shit because he can make fire with shit he finds in the woods.  One of my nephews wants to learn how to hunt, Fish, and be self reliant outdoors as his dad never grew from being a Ass Monkey.  So beginning this year I'm going to pass my woodsy knowledge on to him.  His kid and my Nieces kids want to join in the festivities too.  I'd rather be teaching them how to survive the zombie apocalypse, than have them think they should just take medications for all that ails them.   All of this brings me back to the original point of this thread and that is, it's time for me to hang up the HOTAS and get to living again.  I am happiest when I am outdoors and observing nature.  I share a hunting camp with a friend of 40 years and as we get older it's time to pass the knowledge on to the younger generation to keep the camp up and going.  We are adding wind and Solar power to the camp over the next few years and hopefully we can be off the Diesel generators all together and have a quite place to relax in retirement.     I am going to fly one more time.  I will be flying during the Warbirds of Prey Event for the latest installment of AlderTag on March18th at 1900 GMT (1400EST).  I'm going to fly for about 2 hours and then it's done.  You can join me if you like there.   BlackC5 I have to return the CO hat to you. Everyone else Get out of my office and kill shit. >S<
  3. Last images from the Channel!

    Very Nice Molders >S<
  4. can't get 4.5 to work

    Not sure how well it would run CloD but it might work.  

    Warbirds of Prey server will be running Operation: AlderTag on Sunday Jan. 28, 2018  at 1900GMT or 1400EST.  Send PMs to the friends list.  Even those that don't play but might want to watch.  I'll be throwing it up on either my Twitch or Facebook accounts for watching. If there is a good enough turnout this will become a weekly event.  
  6. My absence of late

    Like I said, If you need someone to talk to I know where you are what you're going through.  My view on it is if you have to chemically alter it t make it fun then it's going to kill you.  
  7. ZG26 in BoX?

    We have player in BOS that I know of. But that being said we are primarily a Cliffs of Dover Blitz squad.  We fly primarily on the Warbirds of Prey server if you change your mind about which sim.  We just don't feel the other Bo(x) sims have a large area arena to fight in. >S<
  8. Sunday 01/21/18

    Attending and kills.  We suffered no deaths Ogg 5.90 Viper03 4.32 Snapshot 3.42 Teetwo 0.71 HappyBudda 0.65 Considering it was a playoff Sunday we did a good job destroying the enemy with no deaths to the squad. >S< Now get out of my office and go kill stuff.

    meeting under way.  no more answers.

    Have you tried running the Nvidia beta cloud card in Cliffs of Dover?  If so what were the results?

    Have you tried running the Nvidia beta cloud card in Cliffs of Dover?  If so what were the results?

    I will be attending a Meeting with TeamFusion at 3:00 PM EST Saturday Jan 20, about the game.  Today they sent me this question....What say you?? You can pass on two queThanks for the Squad leaders... which they can ask their members:   What is your preference?   1)  TF 5.0 is released as soon as possible, with revised AI routines, the new aircraft, ships, vehicles and maps, but with generally the same graphics quality and effects as TF 4.5.  No VR would be included.   2)  TF 5.0 has the above content, but is delayed, for likely an additional six months, to include VR capability and perhaps PBR, (Physics Based Rendering) graphics systems.   Thanks" Also if you have some questions that you would like answered I will try to get them in if you can get them out to me here rather quickly. >S< Get out of my office and kill stuff
  13. My absence of late

    Sorry to hear the problems Sir_Racha. It's not easy knowing you're going to be losing a parent and it just really sucks when it happens.  I watched my mother pass away from Myoleptic Leukemia.  Spent 10 months going through radiation, chemo, and bone marrow transplant then the cancer was back with a vengeance and in 2 weeks she was dead.  Like I said it sucks.  That was in 2001 and I still miss talking with her.   As for the substance abuse I have done just about every drug known to man on the planet.  I have an old adage you might like.  "I quit using drugs because I never found one I didn't like".  I've got scars from burning a needle in my elbow,  I've damaged my sinuses with some very raw Columbia snow, I've been known to enjoy crystal from time to time, mescaline, and Acid, along with making my own crack in the microwave, and growing my own strain of sativa on my Great Grandfather's farm.  The problem I have now is pain killers don't kill pain and I've ground my teeth to the breaking point.  Yeah I could OD on Oxycontin and still not feel a change. So yeah I know where you are kiddo and I wish you the best with your recovery.  It's not easy but it's your choice.  One helpful thing to consider, tell the folks your going camping and go learn about nature.  That's my thing now.  Learn how to survive with nothing but a water filter and a few trinkets in the woods for a week.  Then after the week you'll say F that was hard, but you'll want to do it again and again. we'll see you in the virtual sky soon enough. >S<
  14. After writing new scripts for some of the JU88s missions I'm quite satisfied with the results of the 9 ship triple Vic Formation.  The top gunner is OK, the nose gunner is OK, the belly gunner is pretty deadly when you're slower, The bombardier is accurate to where I placed the bomb load drop area target, and the pilots stayed on course until they were draining coolant from both engines or oil from either engine as you'll see.  I think I'll be writing just single pass raids like these until we gain a further following on the Warbirds Server. Enjoy.  
  15. Now I've been banned from TS

    Wonder, I didn't have a problem with them either until I went against the grain and rubbed them the wrong way.  I got banned from the forums because I was trying to get answers from TeamFusion members on the forums.  The ATAG guys came after me telling me I should not question TF about the problems. In my last post I more or less said "what are you gonna do ban me for asking questions about shades?" and they did. Black Knight worked every day to fix the Warbirds server side issues to remove the lag spikes and rubber banding issues.  We had it reduced where it was playable and I went to the TS and said we needed some help testing the server and had about 4 regular players come over along with all the ATAG and TeamFusion players that were on TS when we were testing.  Our test was successful when we were at 100 aircraft in proximity.  Adding more AI started to show the lag problem again. There was a large propagation of players to the Warbirds server.  A week later TeamFusion gave ATAG a server file based on what Black Knight had started and with their touches added into the mix.  ATAG put up their own test server and came to our TS and into our server and asked us to come test the latest TF patch.  The patch was a success and they changed their server files immediately to play on the STEAM servers.  TF 3 days later sent me an Email asking if we would like the BETA server files to put up on our servers.  I said to send them and I would get them to the Admin.  I have the files and sent them to BK and he checked them and loaded them into our server files also.  Mind you that Warbirds and ATAG were the only servers to get the updated playable files. Even with having the completed server files warbirds was running a good competition against the ATAG server.  People liked the Warbirds server because of the customization skins, an objective to the fight that lasted beyond the 4 hour map laid out, and never being too outclassed by the enemy fighters.  My case in point, when was the last time operation DYNAMO was played on the ATAG server?  Now it seems every other map is New Dawn Fades which is a twitch gangbang of players with insta action on the deck turn and burn. On Monday night I was playing on ATAG server and using the ATAG TS AXIS channel for comms,  After having been in it on and off throughout the day I went to the Allied Channel and it had a couple of ATAG guys on there and I was talking with ATAG_Lewis about a particular fight we had had.  When I was getting ready to leave I said to him it seems like you're servers are becoming more Warbirds like with the skins, no RR, the radar calls, and you got rid of maps like Dynamo and got more fighting maps running.  He said yeah dynamo was a map killer. we laughed and away I went. I went to log into the ATAG server to work on my hurricane skills Wednesday and this was what I had gotten.  You're banned for taking away players on our TS server.  Never mind that they have done, on our game server and TeamSpeak server, the same in the past also.  They have not been banned from our servers. If you play on ATAG servers every day and don't come play with us, your squad mates, when we are on the Warbirds server then why be a member of this squad?  Why not apply for status within the ATAG community?  Soon enough we will have the bugs worked out on the Warbirds server and it will be a better server even with the enhancement of AI that you don't like.  And as for the AI what is it you don't like?  Have you been flying against them in the last week?  If you think they're just target drones then you're mistaken.  If they kick your ass then you need to work on your fighting skills because they have been raised to a good fighting level.  Learning to be a part of a team, fighting as a team, which is what we do best. So I guess the question is do you want to be a part of this squad or do you want to play only with the ATAG guys?  This squad is not going to be a Warbirds server only squad but it is going to run squad night operations on the Warbirds servers.  If you can't or won't fly on the server with us then why be one of us?  That's my question.  It's a question you need to ask yourself. If you're not going to fly with us let us know and we will have you moved to inactive status. You will always be welcomed here with the squad no matter your resolve.
