I just finished a journal for Dubbo's awesome "Castaways" campaign, which you can view here.
Note that it contains mission spoilers if you haven€t already flown it.

I€m using Geocities as a webhost, which doesn€t allow for a hell of a lot of bandwidth, so if you find it unavailable to view, just bookmark it and try again a little later.

Anyway, heres a few sample screenies from the journal:

The weather closes in...

The USN to the rescue...

Can you land a B-25 on a carrier?...

Great fun and well put together with a nice variety of different missions.
I highly recommend it if you haven€t tried this one already.

You can download it from www.airwarfare.com (http://www.airwarfare.com/Sims/FB/fb_campaigns.htm) (scroll down a little)

Brilliant mate! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif I was wondering how it would play post-patch. Your journal is top-notch as always. Thanks

I've looked at a couple of your Journals now and think they are great...

the only thing which spoils them is that the pictures cover over the writing...

if you can fix that I'd make copies for my reading leisure

Cheers Fabianfred,

I€m not 100% sure what could be causing the images to overlap the text, as its the first time that this has been brought to my attention. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Are you by any chance using a browser other than Internet Explorer?
If so, then that could be the cause of the display problems.

Unfortunately, I don€t have the knowledge or experience with html to be able to build the pages from scratch, and so I have been forced to copy and paste the text into the geocities page builder, which does all the coding automatically.
The downside of doing this is that it can have unpredictable results when viewing with anything other than Internet Explorer http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

If you like, send me a PM with your email and the name of the journal you would like to read, and I will be happy to send just the text as a word doc.

Im sorry I cant be of any more help http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Does it happen with all of them, and does anyone else have any similar problems?
You can select from the index page here.

Incidentally, im running Internet Explorer 6.0, with my screen resolution set at 1024x768.

Achilles_NZ,

Great job on the journal! Very entertaining!

Dubbo does a good job on his campaigns. Its inspiring to see what someone who only has three fingers and only attended school up to the third grade can do.

@Zeus-cat LMAO... pretty harsh on poor old Dubbo, but cheers mate http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

@Fabianfred, its got me knackered as to why the layout is being messed up for you. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif
Ill try and get on to Geocities tech support and see what they can suggest.

This thread needed a bump. Dubbo's pretty tough, he can take a little ribbing.

This is a great campaign. Dubbo put a lot of work into this campaign and more people should try it out. It's good and really different. Come on you guy, try it and drop Dubbo a line telling him what you thought about it.
