OK, alright.
We will wait until you fix it. No problem, we have lots of time.
I am very enthusiastic to see what cool changes you have done to IL2-1916.
Not on the airplanes,
but more on that Somme WW1 map and the clouds and scenary.
The airplanes at the moment are still franken-planes and will later be made better. I am sure
of it. Also the new aircraft will join in the battle very soon, final tweaks and fixing are almost
done. I must prepare the new final skins for them too.

This is a new info!  8)
Very soon? Than I maybe wait for the new stuff. What will be replaced?
I pretty much thought that this ww1 project was abandoned long time ago.

I only removed because there were some serious bugs I overlooked.
Today I made some real improvements on some skins and cockpits and I will upload a final version for testing.
I also gonna make a list of thing with which I could use some help.

Cheers

I had a problem making a QMB mission work. With yours I could save the mission and it would show in the list but click fly and nothing happened so I put in QMB pro. The mission would load but the planes would explode on every mission, every map. So I took out QMB pro and deleted the last mission file and all was fine but the missions would not load again. Thats all I could report from yesterday. Other than that I loved it. I cant wait for you to refine this one. WWI needs a kick in the pants to get the public to take interest again. :)

No, no it is not abandoned. IL-2-1916 LIVES! :)
It just takes time to do 3-D special work on some new airplanes
for the game, but many people are also working on World War1 mod for DBW-1916 (IL-2-1916).
I cannot tell you when new airplane is going to be released, but it is very very soon  :-X
What Boomer has said is very true, the new changes you are making are a great step forward to
making a better flying game for everyone, specially WW1 fans.
I like these new backgrounds you are creating too. Very interesting and cool to look at while waiting
for the game to load and start. I would defenitly use them. Good job VP!

I still cant get a QMB mission to work. It saves in the folder and the map will show in the list of missions but click fly and nothing happens. Although I am enjoying the smokes...
