S!  these missions are "old!"   ;D

i mean old.  i actually wrote them for the very first and original IL2 game so many years ago.  but old does not mean outmoded or bad...i just got thru playing them again and they were just as exciting to me now as they were way back in the day.  lol!  and they play 'very' well with the newer version of the game...ie UP2.01, etc.

basically my original idea was to creat a series of missions against the backdrop of a 'mysterious' river...  ie, Danger River.  i think i did fairly good.  btw, these are Russians vs Germans (and their allies.)

i wrote them as ONLINE coops but i play them OFFLINE by using the create server/coop, then selecting the folder Danger River and selecting the missions.  i like this way of playing offline much better as it gives you the choice of side/position/plane you want to fly rather than locking you into side/position/plane like real single missions do.  naturally they 'can' be used online as well.

WARNING.  if you try to change anything in these missions inside of the FMB...you'll completely erase the description/notes of the mission.  if you need to make a change, you can do it in Notepad 'outside' of the game.  opening these missions (due to their age) in FMB could very well ruin the missions.  just letting you know.

these are 'not' historical...but the planes and equipment are...and they can be great fun.  also, expect super high frame rates as these were made on the 'old' maps.  i hope you enjoy them.

PS...there used to be 8 missions...and number 8 is still there.  unfortunately somewhere over the long years number 7 fell by the wayside and has become lost.  just thought i'd throw that in in case anybody wondered where the missing mission 7 was.  lol!

These old mission do fly better in the new game. Some of these old mission are real "classics" - Love them!

I'd love to download the missions. but I get an error at the filefront site.  Maybe someone should check it.

I get ... "Oops! An unexpected error (-1) has occurred."

Thanks TS

Thanks Beowolff your new link worked perfectly.   I'll play it as soon I find figure which mod I added in the last few days is preventing me from playing anything in the QMB or FMB.   

Thanks for the quick fix.
