Here's a track file to check out, if you are curious about coop missions:


http://home.stny.rr.com/fw190a8red1/EarlyWar1.ntrk


This is from a Coop mission I was working on today. While testing it, I figured I may as well record a ntrk file of the action.

I flew much better than I usually do, and did pretty well.

Until my engine sputtered and I hit a tree! D'oh!

I guess I ran out of gas.

Anyway, if you are curious about Coop missions, but haven't flown one, place the track file in the "Records" folder of the game, and have a look.

Sometime I'd love to be able to make movies like others have done. I can sort of do that now by recording track files. And if I ever do get into movie-making, I would think I could use my trk files as material for them.

Note there are no icons, and the weather is good. The visuals of the game really stand out with icons off. To me, coops really need good weather and good lighting for no-icons play. It's too hard for me to see the planes if it's too early, or there is bad weather.

Also, since AI planes can be a part of coop missions, you get to see more of the game in Coops, because you encounter planes you don't normally see. There are Bf110's in the above trk file, for example.

Anyone else got some nice trk files, let's see them.

I like early war coop missions as well. Thats why I fly on the VEF. Not only is it early war, but my stats are recorded online. It's also like a major online dynamic campaign. Feels good to be doing something that will make a difference later rather than just a mission that once it's over thats it.

Every take-off is optional, but every landing is mandatory!
