Evening all,

Just a quick hello from me and an update.

Jack and myself took a break before the holidays agreeing to regroup after the first of the year (2020) to get our set ups in-sync and have the same installs so we could connect via game ranger and the in game protocols screen route.  Jack had time set aside with family  for the holidays and we agreed the we would try to get together in mid January 2020.  At this same period of time I opened a new restaurant which took up all of my time and EAW was not in the fore front of priorities.

I notified Jack of my limited flight time and he was having connection and compatibility issues with EAW at that time as well.  As January turned to February then February to March, Covid happened.  For most of us here in the US who have food service careers the world stopped.  Where I live, Orlando Florida, 50,000 hospitality employees lost their jobs in 1 day.  I was among those who lost their job.

Subsequently as the weeks went by over 500,000 hospitality employees in central Florida would loose their income.  By the time we hit week 4 over 1 million were unemployed in the state of Florida hospitality wise.  The Unemployment system here is antiquated and over 2/3rds of those furloughed were left without any income benefits or unemployment.  Not to cry wolf,  at week 8 I still had not been able get into the state's unemployment website as it crashed daily.  With liquid cash flow running out and bills needing to be paid I took any and every job that paid cash I could get, this way if my unemployment file was finaly approved I would be eligible for compensation.

At week 10, with zero money coming in other than cash gigs I could pick up I was able to jump on a landscaping crew that employed me for 16 hours a day.  At this point I reached out Jack and explained to him that I probably would not be rejoining the 352nd any time soon.

Jack and I agreed that turning command back to him was the right thing to do, we saluted each other and wished each other well and good fortune.  I have ambitions of returning to the 352nd but at this point in time it is on the back burner.  I do not have personal time to designate to flying in the near future.

I will stay in contact with the 352nd as long as Jack will have me but I will not be active until Life becomes a little more normal.

I hope this sheds some light on where I've been and my direction currently.

I wish all of you good health, happiness, and blue skies...

I'll see you all again when the time is right.

No responses- what is happening, if anything?

Jack, I know this thread got picked off onto another topic, but where do you stand regarding things here?

Any progress?
I can still use my VPN for the 352nd, but if I have it running then when I visit MediaFire they report that someone tried to log-in to my account with the right name and password, but not my normal IP.

Just to explain  :D
There are two files that EAW uses for weapons. "Weapons.dat" has the data and "Weapons.str" has the names.
In the 150 version, and earlier, there were gun-pods in slots 27 (20 mm), 28 (30 mm) and 29 (37 mm).
When Ray wrote a new pair of weapons files he put different weapons in those slots, thereby killing the gunpods off.
The problem is that the Plane FM files that Knegel wrote had some Axis aircraft with gunpods, and the 352nd planeset uses those files.
So when you fly them in 160 you do not see Ralf's gunpods, but you see the weapons that Ray put in the slots.
This is why I had to create 160 :(

However, to fix the problem I put Ralf's gunpods in lines 93, 94 and 95 of his weapons.dat file. These three lines are in a section that is not currently used, so using them did not cause a problem. I have made a new planeset "26-352nd Fighter Group TB" by editing your "26-352nd Fighter Group" planeset so that the axis planes that referenced the old slots 27-29 now reference the corresponding new slots 93-95.

If I use this planeset with the latest 160 exe then I can fly any of these Axis planes at GameRanger, and get gunpods if I choose them.

Testing 160:
I recently added a "dir.set" named "0a-Default ETO with 150 weapons" which is exactly what it is.
A number of planesets, including the 352nd's reference Knegel's FMs and to use them properly you need the 150 weapons files loaded.
If you fly some of the axis planes you can select gunpods.

Jack's on his way..

....and did quite well :)

Here is a 109G with gunpods selectable in loadout ;)

I think that the 150 may be better than the 160 version.
If I remember correctly the FMs are Ralf's "Europe Late" which uses the 150 weapons files.
Some Axis planes may have gunpods, and they will not show with the 160 system which has modified weapons files.

Back with VPN because after I left I thought that "turm.net" may have been a typo of yours, which should have been "turma.net" which  gives me the welcome page.
However, if I try it without VPN I get the time out error :(
