Re: Other plane cockpits in Allied Force

If the cockpit.dat files are configured the same as the aircraft .dat files then the file isn't encrypted but is a binary file not a text file as in previous versions of Falcon. I did actually start to decipher the aircraft .dat file. The way I went about this was to find an aircraft .dat file from ...

Re: 256 Segment Theater tests

How about using this huge theatres to emulate out of theatre flights coming in e.g. a base right on the edge with B52's that can fly in. Would look strange on the planning map maybe, but at least you wouldn't have 1000's of airbases etc to place.
