It's a game mod, you need to download it, I believe... It's for Red Baron 3D

You need to buy Red Baron 3d which is really cheap these days and then you can buy the super patch from the URL you posted which updates everthing.

rats, I had, or still have RebBaron 3D laying around here somewhere. Totally unimpressed with the game. Like stick figures flying. I cant imagine it could look like the screenies I saw on the website!
Well...if thats the case, I'll go read the site again instead of posting a greenhorn statement.
thanks-

Get it here: http://www.plgrafix.com/

You need either Red Baron II or Red Baron 3D first and if you have a non-3DFX card, you need the glidos files. Everything is explained here: http://www.wings-of-valor.net/

There are also various add-ons available. Here are 2 excellent add-ons for free:

It runs fine on my XP Pro system. I'm using an ATI 9700 Pro with the OpenGlide wrapper and get 40 fps in a furball.

The FCJ patch takes a 5 year old game and makes it look as good as many modern sims. There are improved flight models and damage models as well.

The FCJ patch was $23 and can be ordered at http://www.plgrafix.com

The screenshots at the website are from the game...

I believe the XP issue is that Sold Out have released an edition of Red Baron that does not install probably on XP. You can force it to install though, with a free app called isobuster.

I got my older box set up just so I can play this game. If you're not running Red Baron 3D on a 3dfx Voodoo video card (4500 in my case) then you're wasting your time... I think there are glide emulators written for nVidias but I haven't tried them 'cause I don't need to.

Red Baron runs really fine on a XP pro system, GF4-4200 and Athlon 2400. Using Glidos drivers u get terrific 3d idea.
I ordered the Promised Land Patch wich, im sure of it, turnsthat oldie in something terrific.
I've played it since it came out and spend a big deal of my life on it. Even my son (13 now) still enjoys it.

Someone saying there's too little reality in this ?

Yes of course, its only fantasy like all other games but can give lots of fun.
Thats what its all about, huh ??

News from wings with wires:

"We are NOT working on BOP right now. Bryan has NO time and so we put the work on hold until he gets freed up. It could be 3 months, it could be 3 years. We don't know, and we don't care. We are going on with BOP because we want to do it - and we are painfully patient if nothing else."

I'm guessing it will nearer the three year than three month end of that spectrum. They seem commited and in for the long haul, but with hobby projects, who can say. I've got my fingers crossed, anyway.

I'm very happy with 4 patchs I already installed.

Hell angels super patch.
A brand new Fm patch and a brand New Dm patch (Both avaiable trough Hells angles webstite).

Knights over Europe looks great. But I've got the impression that they're not going full out for complete realism, and pitching more at a gaming market. So while I'm very keen to try out their Sopwith Camel, there will invetably be a twinge of disappointment if it doesn't make a good attempt at modelling its gyroscopic turning effects.

well...i dont think by looking at those screenies I will forget about Red Baron !
To me its still giving mucho fun and my hopes are that the Full Canvas Patch will add enough eye-candy to keep this game a classic with a nowadays look. And i dont think Knights over Europe will have a great impact..but what the heck, i will buy & try it anyway !

BTW i ordered the FCJ patch 4 weeks ago, today i had a e-mail by Kess ( the developer of the patch) saying he had shipped it today. Dunno how long it will take to get it cause i live in the Netherlands, but all together its 4 to 6 weeks delivery time.

thats it for now

Hi Guys,


All the information on my Full Canvas Jacket superpatch for RB is on the Promised Land website. Its a new site so im still currently updating and adding info to it.

Basically the FCJ patch changes everything you see and hear in the game, it changes alot of the gameplay aspects, adds in new aces and squads, lots of new scenery and objects, vamps up the flight and damage models for the planes, seriously boosts the aggrssiveness of the AI pilots, along with intensifying flak and other features in the game. its about 4+ years of mods that i had previously done, along with a year straight of work specifically for this patch (lots of time put into studying and recreating the historical squad and ace plane paint schemes and making photoreal recreations of them).


FCJ was just featured in the June issue of Computer games magazine, theres gonna be a review in PC Gamer here in the dec issue thats hitting the stands in about a month, also articles coming up in Computer Gaming World, SimHW.com, and other places if you want to read up more about it. Ive also been putting up players comments about it on the PL site to reassure those considering FCJ that i didnt make no junk /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

No, theres technically no delay, i started taking preorders in feb, i finished the patch on Aug 16th and immediately started shipping, in the last month ive been able to catch upto within 30 days of the current orders being placed. basically i should be able to ship order within a week or two now, and as i catch up over the next week or so that timeframe will diminish too.

Red Baron has come a long way since its inception and the Promised Land add-on that comes on a CD is well worth the price. It makes RB a whole new game.
RB is a glide-based game though, and you need to get a glide wrapper or use, as I do, an old 3dfx card.
I have a separate computer for RB.

Nice to have you over in the Il2 forum, Kess. The kind of obsessive perfectionism that you put into Full Canvas Jacket will always be welcome round these parts! Hope you're racking up plenty of sales - you certainly deserve them.

Whatever you can run RB on, the great thing about FCJ is that with people using the new openglide emulation drivers on their modern 3d vid cards, sometimes on lower end machines the framerates can get a bit low, FCJ comes with a control panel app that allows you to customize every dang thing in the game(and even a bunch of things you would not normally be able to) so pretty much anyone can dial in rb/fcj to work on their particular system.
