Hi is there any way to fly the AI only planes
- as in from the external viewpoints/chase view.

some online games that i have played of il2 fb allow you to fly the AI only planes - and i have been looking all over the web to find a patch.- without success.

All I want to do is land a B-17!!!

You can do it on-line - in a df server or off-line (set up your own df server).

You need to edit a df mission - use notepad (free with any windows Os).

Add in the plane's name ... usually exactly the same as the name in the skins folder, with any spaces replaced with underscores (_).

Search the mission builder forum for more info ... including plane names.

Warning - il2/fb is VERY sensitive to spelling and case.


Hint:
You do have to fly a flyable type BEFORE trying to fly an non-flyable type (at least - switch on engine).

I've given up correcting my own spelling
Unless I've corrected it here

Ok this is not a problem http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Go to this website
http://www.angelfire.com/games5/hellsgazelles/sm.htm#Mission%20Name:%20Fly%20All%20Planes

and go to the mission page and download one of the Fly all Aircraft missions, save this into the folder

C:\Program Files\Ubi Soft\IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles\Missions\Net\dogfight

if that is where you have the game, if not put it in the correct folder on your hard drive, you could add another folder in that one alongside the 1 2 3 and 4 folders in there and call it AI or similar.

Then off line start the game, in the main menu select multiplay, then create new server, select dogfight, then in the next window select the file for the AI mission, it will be in the folder if you made one and load that, you can now fly all the AI planes offline http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif remember you need to fly a normal one first before an AI one or the controls dont work http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif... on loading you do have the options at the bottom to set it up for airstart etc, it is in the difficulty button.

This is what i use when skinning to see what i am doing and line things up, the game is offline and you are on your own, no other aircraft, but the flak is still there ok http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
