Title: P-38Ls for the Philippines Campaign
Post by: _AH_DarkWolf on November 03, 2018, 08:59:28 PM
So I'm looking at doing some P-38Ls of the 475th FG. They used red, yellow and blue trim to denote the squadrons.

431st used red

432nd used yellow

433rd used blue

(http://img.wp.scn.ru/camms/ar/298/pics/3_69.jpg)


Some of the aircraft have double bands around the booms, I think that denotes a squadron leader's aircraft so I'll apply that for our three. These represent aircraft used in '45 and have the numbers on the side of the engines rather than the nose like their earlier aircraft. The numbers from 100->199 were divided in blocks between the group's HQ flight and the three squadrons but I don't think we'll follow that, guys can pick whatever trim color with whatever number they want.

It appears the HQ flight had aircraft marked up with multicolored bands for all the group's squadrons. So if our HQ guys want that they could go that route.

So if you want a skin just let me know the noseart, number and trim color you want. Not much time before this tuesday, so if you get your info to me before the end of sunday I should have yours done for the next mission.

Hmm, ok. I can make that tweak. I put the skins together last night on the other comp but thats easy enough to change. I still haven't converted any of them, I'll do that after supper and touch em up then zip em up and PM out the link.

The Campaign mission we flew on the 6th wouldn't let me choose none for squadron so I couldn't get to the default skin but didn't want to show up without the artwork DW so kindly provided.. which is why it looked a bit wonky.  Didn't even think to look at the noseart when readying up. I ended up coming in last minute onaccounta  my mic getting ruined by the last windows 10 update.  I've got two mics and can't get either of them to work.. thanks microsoft.. I sent them a very sternly worded email about it. Haven't heard back.   (roll)
   Last mission I did lose control of my stick.. it didn't come unplugged, it just wouldn't respond. for about bout 5 minutes after I crashed I was trying to get it to work.. never saw this before..I didn't even have a keyboard in the game until I repositioned the map with my mouse and then the keyboard came back, stick still dead, but at least I could watch.   
   On the bright side, I will be able to use my phone for a discord mic for the upcoming missions until the geniuses tl microsoft figure out how to pull their heads out of their :censored-015: and fix what they've broken.  Believe me I've tried to fix it. Everything works except both mics,  the one that's built into the laptop, and the one on my headset,  nothing from either one anywhere even though Windows shows no problems.

Choosing none as an air force is usually a dogfight thing, COOPs have the little markings on/off switch...

Since you were having other problems I'll give you a pass this ONE time.
