    For Sale: One slightly used plane

    It appears to be in good condition - you only need a 4WD or a good tow bar to right that baby and then it's as good as new. I took a peek inside and the ammo's still there and the guns are primed. What a steal!

    Sleighty

    You don't EVER want to get into Sleighty's bad books ....

    You can tell by the following chat that Sleighty's team weren't pulling their weight (pub server of course).

    The green btw is what happens when you set up a BUDDY. Their ARROW on the map turns green, the text is green and their tag goes all psychadelic in the game. It's good for keeping a squad together.

    Bit off topic Fox, but when you've set a buddy, does it persist from game to game/session to session?

    I don't know for sure but it should persist (I don't have many friends after all).

    You'll find an entry like this :-

    game.addPlayerToBuddyListByName "TOG | Sleighty"

    in your

    C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods\bf1942\Settings\Profiles\Custom\buddylist.con

    folder. Custom is the name of my profile (I have a 2nd movie making profile with different settings).

    You can edit this file, or type it in at the console.

    Well Fox, u should do us a custom file with all members in it!
    Be handy to have for all of us instead of us doing it all seperately.

    Sure - I could do one.

    The problem is that my buddy list changes all the time. During ladder matches, I put just the 3 or 4 ppl on my squad in the buddy list and then I change it when we have the next match.

    You're right - for pubs it certainly lets you gang up on unsuspecting public.

    Resurrecting this thread:

    Last night's BoB match, in the previous Axis round I'd capped the gold flag. Then came this little beauty of a round. Every time I'd drop a bomb I found a team mate:

    Updated Buddy list is a sticky

    Now that the Buddy List is a sticky and there are enough players interested in using it, you can always find the most up to date list in the forums.

    Just copy and paste it into notepad and save it as Buddylist.con in your profiles folder.

    When you first join a game, the program automatically tries to add all your buddies.

    Type ~ at the start and you will see all the failed messages when the game tries to add in buddies from the list who are not currently in game.

    Making a short cut to the folder will allow you to open it up and add the appropriate version of the Buddylist.con for your use (ie. Your squad (For ladder matches), All TOG Members (in pub games)) when you need it.

    I have a buddylist for each occasion in a different folder and simply copy and replace the existing list as required.

    My Video Card started overheating but it was Christmas right? How coincidental is this? I call it "Basrah Xmas Nights"

    Here's something I discovered during a team practice... the Opposition planes can be landed upside down with no damage. They eventually blow up but you have enough time to "eject" out and walk away!

    How to get great screenshots.

    I have been using this program to do my screen captures for ages now and think that it is the best thing going..
    No need to remember what game needs what key for taking a shot, and it does video.
    http://www.fraps.com
    I use the basic version which only allows BMP's, but then use GIMP to convert to GIF or JPEG.

    Thought you might find this handy.
