Ok, I corrected some advice on Netspeed, added information about AGP Apeture size, slightly more information on a possible problem with Norton anti-virus and how to correct it, some information on how to edit conf.ini files to stop or change text being printed on the screen while playing the game as well as how to change the language files around so you can have the AI pilots peak in the language of your choice and also added some imput from a couple of guys on how to take and manage screen shots.

good job there, luckyboy, however, your article REALLY needs an index to be useful. Just an index at the beginning linking to the various sections. If a person is looking for a specific issue it is way to hard to look through all the article.

Nice guide;

You state that WinMe/Win98 is not able to handle more than 512MByte RAM though - that's not quite correct.

----------------------------------------------
Be very carefull when using the following!!! - You may loose everything that's on your boot-drive !!!
----------------------------------------------

That said,

Install the RAM (1GByte for example), then when booting press F8 (command prompt only)...

Edit the system.ini file from windows and add/edit the following


[386Enh]
MaxPhysPage = 30000
ConservativeSwapFileUsage = 1


This will give WinMe/Win98 access to 768MByte of RAM.

Even better, if you change the 30000 value to 3C000 - it will have access to 960MByte although it will not use the memory above the 768MByte boundary...

Well, if you are a complete user like me, you've got plenty of issues so read on! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/crazy.gif

Actually, that is a great suggestion. What I would really like is to have an index where when you clicked on something, it scrolled you down the page to the correct issue. I have two problems with setting up such a system.

First, I have no idea how to set up the web page so it will do that.

Then, even if I could set it up so it would page down to the point where the subject you are interested in starts, so many of the subjects are all related (kinda like the people in the State I live in. Their family trees look like superhighways! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif ) and then I would have a choice between either repeating myself (Hey Luckyboy, don't you repeat yourself all the time in the Community Help forum when you say, "Post your diagnosis please"?! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/52.gif ) or having someone miss something important. Still, I think that when people see that wilderness of text, they are less likely to read it at all without a truly user friendly index. So if someone is willing to tell me how to set it up so that when someone clicks on a subject, it pages down to the correct part of the page, I would be happy to do set it up that way. I do not want to set it up so that the first page is simply a link to other web pages. I need it to be set up so it simply pages you down to the correct spot. Anyone?

lil_labbit, it is true what you are saying, but I think I would rather direct people to use cacheman. After all, it is a guide for complete users. In fact, maybe I should include a link to it.

Yep nice job mate.
Though I'd be a bit wary about giving out advice about changing electrical sockets - maybe you need a few disclaimers in place.
Especially since the internet is global and here in Britain we have black for neutral and red for live and green/yellow for earth.

Right! Man, oh man! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif Just when I think of myself as a "man of the world" here I go on with egocentric thinking! Thanks M8! You are exactly right about that.

Thanks for coming through for me again B16ENK helping me with this guide. What I am hoping to develope here is a guide that people new to the game (and even those who are not) can look at and straighten out the most common problems without going through a long, hard won learning curve. Silly me is under the delusion that if people get less grief from the learning curve, they will be willing to stick with the game and also recommend it to others; if not for the game itself, for the things they learned to make their PC faster and more secure.

Yup, this is what you need:

"Section Names

The great thing about page jumps is that they are so easy to do. Basically, they are just links (they use the same &lt;a&gt; tag as all links), but links that link to a certain part of a document. This is done by naming parts of your page, and then making the link by referring to that section.

Page jumps are done by using the name attribute of the a tag. So, say you wanted a link to the top of your page, you would put

&lt;a name="top"&gt;&lt;/a&gt;

near the top of your document (between the &lt;body&gt; tags, of course). There doesn't need to be anything between the tag and its end tag. Then, in the place you want to place the link, put

&lt;a href="#top"&gt;link to top&lt;/a&gt;

Notice the Hash mark (#). That tells the browser that it's a section of a page it's looking for, and not a page or folder. So just make a link to the section you named earlier (you can name the link to the top anything you want, but keeping it memorable and simple always works out best) by putting a # in front of the name. Always remember, the # goes in the href NOT in the name."

- Then just have an index at the beginning of your page with links to the different sections.

At each section include a "go to top"-link in the beginning and end of the section.

BTW, you're exactly right that it should all be on one page. No need to make things more complex than they need to be. The "Jacob Nielsen" way... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Ok, please hang with me here. My pea sized brain hurts right now. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif Let's see if I have this right. To begin with, all I did to create this link is write it all up in Word format and then did a "save as" with a .html at the end of it. Then I uploaded it to PingDude using something called LeechFTP. Like elfin majic, it works when you click on the link, so I am far from a html knowledgeable person. So what you and that link are trying to say is, well, to make it easier on my very limited brain cells, let me post everything it shows written before the text body of the web page...

&lt;a href="#top"&gt;link to top&lt;/a&gt;

Than at the top of the page I would put things in like...

&lt;a href=#"AGP Apeture"&gt;How To set Apeture Size & Why It Is Important&lt;/a&gt;

and then go down to the section of text where I want the page to index to when they click on that option and put in...

&lt;a name="AGP Apeture"&gt;&lt;/a&gt;

and that would be the point in the document it would take them to?

Hey Luckboy,
Nice work. Just a bit of feedback for ya...

..."The Celeron and Duron CPU‚'s do not have an internal math coprocessor"...

Coprocessors (FPU's) were integrated on die when Intel released the 486DX and have been ever since (including AMD and Cyrix chips).
I've never heard of having to purchase an extra addon chip to perform math operations of the non integer type for Celeron or Duron CPU's. But I could be wrong. Where did you get this information?
I don't mean to sound like a scathing nerd just some constructive criticism.

LuckyBoy1
07-13-2004, 03:37 AM
The math coprocessor resides on the motherboard for Celeron and Duron supported motherboards. This is no big deal for some applications, but when you get into heavy math applications like Excel or IL-2 FB you run into some trouble. You might be thinking, "IL-2 FB a heavy math application"? Yes, it is. Remember, the game is trying to mimmic reality. Ever see the threads some guys use over in Oleg's ready room to proove this or that point about modelling? They will sometimes post a screenshot of a curve representing the values this or that should be at given certain conditions? Those curves are represented mathmatically by something called the quadradic equation or by other even more complicated methods. Rarely is something as simple as a pathagoreum theorum used. Here's a link to what a mess the formula looks like...

http://www.valleyview.k12.oh.us/vvhs/dept/math/quadshelp.html#parts

Every time we whine that this isn't modelled correctly or that isn't modelled correctly, the fix for the problem will be in the math. As a result, every time the CPU needs a math calculation, a Celeron chip has to go through the buss and fetch it from the motherboard. So you can spin the clock speed as fast as you please on a Celeron chip and not get much good use out of it in this game due to it just sitting there waiting for the calculations to come back.

By the way, you are not being picky here. It is a great question and shows you actually like, read the guide!

Hola,

I'll throw my 2 cents in on Norton AV here, not a fan. Same with McAfee, both have caused major headaches for me in the past & not just on Home users systems.

For a good alternative I suggest NOD32 from Eset. It's very good at just being an AV program and behaving itself.

Horrido!

Hey Luckboy1,

I don't mean to nag.
I've scoured the web and all my texts and can't find any info on Celerons or Durons or any other modern processor which use an external FPU, They're all integrated within the chip's core not on the mobo. As I mentioned in my previous reply this has been the case since the 486DX (1989). I'm not trying to defend these chips either, they're certainly not up to par when compared to PIVs or Athlons. You might want to look into this further, I'm intrigued on where you obtained this information...
The performance problems you mention may have something to do with the FPU indirectly i.e internal data bus widths & L1 & L2 cache - not 100% sure.
Cheers and best of luck

Let me check on that information. That's what's so right about me... I'm wrong all the time! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

And you are not being a nag. What if I include all this good information and then people do not have confidence in it due to a couple of small, picky points being wrong?

Hey LuckyBoy1,

Glad to be of help. I see your guide as something essential to those in need of extra direction (not excluding myself) as far as hardware/software setup is concerned so I'm more than willing to throw in my 5cents worth. I'd frown to see something so useful being compromised by a minor error.

Nice work on the index by the way...
Keep on keepin' on!

Holy Cow. This is an excellent product. Thank you very much. It helps me understand my favorite toy much better.
