SEE OTHER AIRCRAFT EVEN IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE PLANE OR IT'S TEXTURES

There is a setting in CFS2 that will allow you to "see" other pilot's planes and the plane's textures even if you don't have that particular plane. Here's what you do:

  1. Open the Cfs2.cfg file in Notepad.

  2. Scroll down to the [MULTIPLAYER] section.

  3. Change the "0" after the equals (=) sign in the following lines to a "1" as shown below:

     

    ALLOW_PLANE_MODEL_SEND=1

    ALLOW_PLANE_MODEL_RECEIVE=1

    ALLOW_TEXTURE_SEND=1

    ALLOW_TEXTURE_RECEIVE=1

     

  4. Save the changes to the Cfs2.cfg file.

  5. Make the file "Read Only" so that CFS2 can't change the settings back. That's it...

A very special thanks to BadJointscfs2 for the addition of step #5!

This is great for "squad" meets, as everybody will be able to "see" everybody else's plane and textures. NOTE: In order for this to work, especially in "multiplayer" mode on the Zone, EVERYBODY in the game must have these lines changed.

 

 

GETTING RID OF THE "UNKNOWN SOLDIER" TAG WHEN ENTERING VIA IP ADDRESS

I recently came across a way to get rid of the infamous "Unknown Soldier" handle that CFS1 and CFS2 create when you come into a game via TCP/IP instead of through the MSN Gaming Zone. It involves simply adding your handle to the CFS1 and CFS2 configuration file. Here's how to have your zone handle appear whenever you enter via TCP/IP:

  1. Open the CFS2.cfg file using Notepad.

  2. Scroll down to the [MULTIPLAYER] section.

  3. Look for the line: SP_PROTOCOL_ADDRESS=.

  4. Scroll to the end of the line and press Enter on the keyboard to add a blank line after this section.

  5. Type in the following, typing your actual Zone handle: SP_PLAYER_NAME=Your Zone Handle

  6. Save the changes to the CFS2.cfg file.

That's it...From now on, even if you enter a game through the IP address, you will always have your actual Zone handle instead of "Unknown Soldier"...Click here to see a photo of how the CFS2.cfg file should look like.

 

NOTE: The CFS2 Ultimate Weapons Pack x86 only needs to be installed once for the ABSquad aircraft. You do not have to install it each time you install a new aircraft. Once it is installed, it is available for all aircraft. You would only need to install it again if you completely uninstall CFS2 and then re-install it.

MISCELLANEOUS:

CFS2 x86 Non-Combat Ships Update (48.5KB). If you have tinkered with the Mission Builder in CFS2 you may have noticed that non combat ships don't follow the waypoints you assign; they normally turn until they are heading north and then proceed straight. This makes creating missions with convoys a bit awkward. The fix is very simple, it's enough to place a gun on board the non combat ships and they will behave correctly following the waypoints specified in the Mission Builder. By: Nibbio. Installation program by: AB_Lt_Cmd_Riker. NOTE: This installation program now includes a batch file to install and remove this effect.

CFS2 x86 Multiplayer Pilot Lounge (1.24B). This program will install a new Multiplayer "splash screen" for CFS2 based on an update done by Hells_Angels13™ and using new artwork to replace the cartoon image. This new screen also has the advantage of showing more information to the user so that he or she does not have to "scroll" down so much to see the information. Original concept by: Hells_Angels13™. Artwork by: AB_Lt_Cmd_Riker. To see an snapshot of the splash screen, click here. NOTE: The self-install program used here will create backups of all files replaced, giving them a ".org" extension.
