  1. I just can't beleive it how some people are quick to abandon their freedom just in order to obtain something they strive for. Read Faust please. So if I sum up guys here are willing to accept the limited activations eventhough they have no guarantee that it will be "easy" for them to obtain more activations after that. And what then ? What if they change their staff and you have rocket scientist who will find you guilty before you can prove otherwise ? By that I meant he purly and simply stops issuing of new activations ? Will you buy BS again or will you wait for another release ? Wha
  2. Hello, I was looking forward to buy Black Shark even though I'm not a helicopter fan. Nevertheless I wanted to support the ED by buying their product and supporting them as the only company on the market still producing combat flight sims along with Lead Poursuite and fighter ops. I have Flanker 2.0, Lockon and Flaming Cliffs legally bought. Yet when I read the open letter addressed to the community by ED I must say that I was in shock. Their decision to implement online activation system despite the fact that we have the DVD is a buy stopper for me. I want to be able to play the soft
  3. Save the model in 3ds format not gmax and tehy will be able to import it. If you have any kind of animation use pivot animation not something complex. Oh main difference between gmax and 3dsmax is that gmx model cant be rendered.
  4. Play Lockon in native resolution for LCD which is 1280x1024.
  5. Meteror is designed to fit on Eurofighter and Rafale. Rafale is a small plane compared to other planes so I don't think that in size Meteor will be as big as AIM-54. It would be rather comparable to the size of the AMRAAM. Don't forget that AIM-54 was developed in 70 and the electronics inside are huge. With today modern technology electronics will take less place inside the missile. Therefor more place will be offered to the fuel and to the warhead. Moreover ramjet dosen't have boosters so more place is gained. For guys who want to know the basics of ramjet propulsion here is the l
  6. Taken from this site : http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/world/europe/bvraam.htm on Meteor and no, the US have no such missile yet in its arsenal but I think that something similar will be either bought or developped for F-22.
  7. Hi again, Concerning the datalink. It's encrypted numerical signal (+5V 0V) and tehre is no way that the RWR could know that the missile is for its plane before Aim-120 goes active. Just to recall something here. A RWR is made out of an antenna network set over the plane. Those antennas are receiving the radio signal and onboard computer is interpreting the received signal. Now cocnernig datalink being taken over by AWACS. Such missile exists allready and is called METEOR. New european advanced BVR missile. It's made for use on Eurofighter and on Rafale. Once the missile is launched
  8. HI there, Nice text you've found but a very large amount of data is missing. 1. We don't know the exact tactical situation 2. What were the launch parameters for AMRAAMs ? 3. The yugoslavian hardware was jammed with a lot efficiency during conflict. Yugoslavian Air Force had exactly the same Mig-29A as German Air Force. Electronic warfare was one of aspect of that war too. 4. What pieces of hardware were operational on Migs ? Major drawback of Mig's electronics is a time of functioning after which you need to change parts. Spare parts were legally impossible to have because
  9. Hey SUB check the video footage for Desert Storm and Allied Force. You'll see that the flak is still there eventhough its accuracy is more than null. As for infantry, well it's too bad that this engin dosen't support skeleton animations. It would have been awsome to have an infantry. But ED didn't think about that in first place when they started the write this engine.
  10. Sorry guys but as it's now Lockon is just technological demostrator. It's good for making movies and play it online (if you can find ppl to fly with you). The huge map which was so hardly coded is completly useless. I mean it's just like a big schoolyard and you are playing alone against 3 or 4 AI. Attack missions have no immersion. You can set up air defenses but it will be only limited to the engaged unit or you can say bye bye to the FPS. You feel alone out there. No chatter. Maybe we don't need necessarly a dynamic campaign but at least give us some decent editor which uses tri
  11. Ok. I wasn't a Falcon driver before the Allied Force was released. So let me tell you a little anecdote which happened to me recently. Theater was Balkan. I chose mudmovers squadron. My squad was scrambled and the mission was created. A CAS one. We had to take out enemy tanks which were attacking NATO defense lines. We were given target coordinates and we took off. Once we arrived over the target area we saw enemy tanks destroyed. We thought that the mission was over but no. We were redirected over another target area which was something like 5-10 km northwest out of our position. We mo
  12. Cncerning the campaign and the mission editor; I read this on ubi forum which was an announce translation from MAKS airshow Simulator stand.
  13. Instead giving the order to attack ground targets aski it to attack air defenses. You'll see how fast they are cleaned with the AI pilot if you equiped it with mavericks.
