Sorry Dark, the error I get is the map error.

TD I had a bunch of back up copies of the game and all of the downloads required to patch it up from the original Pacific Fighters 4.01 I think.

the vote says it all lippy. we're going to HSFX, it's just a matter of when.
i'd say it will be official once everyone has it good to go, so don't be the last guy not ready..  :surprised-027:

Sorry Dark, the error I get is the map error.

Some of the maps have been renamed. I know at least one north african map was renamed and the Slot maps all got re-named to Solomons recently, possibly as part of their inclusion in an official patch. The easy fix is to go into the FMB and open the right map and save a temporary mission using it. Then open the .mis file of that temporary mission and copy the first line in the [MAIN] section. ie.  "MAP LALnormandy2/LAL_load2.ini". Then paste that line into the old mission, it should then use the new map name and load fine.

We're already there, just waiting for all pilots to get 'up & on!

Really no hassle depending on your download speed. The only hassle is the updater taking you from version HSFX 6.01 to the current version. That takes a while to download. The server is pretty slow. Expect 2 - 3 hours.

Now all I have to do is get the updater running and hook it all up to the hyper lobby..... I really like the idea Olds has..... its hooked up to the switcher so he can run any version he wants to by just putting the version over to the right side.......

Even simpler, Nimble, I don't have to move anything. I just select from the list on the left. Just don't hit the Delete Game button :unhappy-059: ...it can make a mess. That's why I keep extra copies  :happy-112:

Notes: Nimble lost his game so he didn't have a Conf.ini file from his old game.

Screen resolution: Open your Conf.ini and adjust each of the 12 parameters to look like the one below except insert your monitors Native Screen resolution.

[window]
width=1280 <==== Replace with your monitors Native resolution
height=1024 <===  Replace with your monitors Native resolution
ColourBits=32
DepthBits=24
StencilBits=8
ChangeScreenRes=1
FullScreen=1
DrawIfNotFocused=0
EnableResize=0
EnableClose=1

Ahhh, OK you must choose HSFX servers or...open your JSGME.exe and move everything to to left. Now you can get into the stock game servers with 4.11.1

To play HSFX servers then move HSFX history mod to the right side, OK?

     Who,what,where,when,why of all those mods in the GSME? There are a whole bunch of 'um and I only use(per. Turbo)3 or 4. What are the other ones for? Why not put 'um all over on the right side or dump 'um? Just wondering.

Thank you so much Duff, these instructions have been invaluable to me. Doing the HSFX updater.exe now.
Good time to get some lunch. S!
