My first A-G kills in 4.35 With a thousand thanks to the devs:
Everything seems to be working just fine, even on my vastly obsolete machine. The cloud patterns are beautiful…
You can simply enter either of the two A-A combat modes by pressing “M” (missile mode) or “D” (dogfight mode). Cancellation (default key “C”) will put you back in the nav mode. At least that’s how I do it. Those keyboard command assignments are the default ones in the Full keyboard file.
I have reasons to believe it’s not the Ataturk Airport itself that causes the CTD. A similar problem was signalled in another thread. The poster stated he had had a CTD any time he approached Bosphorus. I replicated the mission, and indeed, the sim stopped working. BTW, I also tried to bomb Ataturk Airport with Mk82s, approached directly from the west and got a CTD when I was about 5 miles from the target. Mystic_J took note of the crashes and said he would investigate into the case (could be "a FUBARed bridge ).
BMS crashes when I approach Bosphorus! Is it a bug or a problem with my installation? Thanx in advance!
I confirm that. Made a simple TE where I approached Bosphorus from the west (the Sea of Marmara), then turned sharply north and… that was it. “BMS program stopped working” was all I saw…
You need to install the program on your HD (a minimum install, some 160 MB, will suffice). BMS installer won’t do anything with it; it will just check for its presence. You will have to keep it residing on your HD at all times. Then BMS is a separate, independent simulator, not a mod of any kind. Make sure to install the U1-U2 updates, too.
Edit: Check the forum ‘Releases & Updates’ for more information on how to install and update BMS, which can be quite tricky…
Icer - you’re right. After all, changes to the config are signalled in the update announcement. Anyway, I ran through the config again to introduce the settings that work for me (and I always remember which ones ;)) Actually I had made a backup of the whole config folder, just in case… I’d hate to have to go through the controller setup yet again, but that seems to have been left untouched
After the U2 update I launched the only third-party theatre that’s currently installed with my BMS, namely the NTO Polar Vortex. I ran an Instant Action and a TE mission, and both went just fine. But in both cases the program crashed (stopped responding) when I tried to switch back to the KTO and the program attempted auto-exit to Windows. When launched again, BMS was still in NTO and could be properly switched to KTO UNLESS I flew a mission. Is it a matter of some NTO/U2 incompatibility or should I search for other reasons?
I have no idea what’s going on. When I commence the DL from MediaFire, my browser (currently Brave) indicates the DL time of an order of several hours, sometimes even more. With the recently added EMF theatre the expected DL time was 23 hours! I still have the good old FireFox, but attempting a download from there makes no difference. My internet connection is OK; recently I have downloaded a 1.9 GB file from SourceForge, and it took just several minutes. Also all downloads carried out via Torrent are lightning-fast.
Any ideas? Has anyone else experienced a similar nuisance?
