I think there's an installer for the old version floating around. I don't think there's anything "new" in development.

This is interesting issue... Balkans is being sold "in" F4AF by LP, but then again I was one of the guys tiling the thing and I havent received a cent from the work I did...

So, if I (or anyone for that matter) would now take whatever the latest Balkans version is out there and upgrade it at least for the 3-f4-version installer and release it... would I be breaking the copyright law or some other stuff?

:?

Anyways, I have very little interest for Balkans personally and I would have to get very bored before doing any work for it. Also isn't the LP version quite complete already or is it that you guys just would like to have RV compatible version?

i think its due to the fact that RV has a robust carrier ops ,and balkans has alot of drink.

Most people probably just want a repackaged RV-compatible installer--no upgrades/changes needed. Or, at least a documented way to kludge previous installers to work right.

Actually if you have FF3 with Blakans or a backup of the folders you can migrate the theater folders to RV installation and it'll work. same goes actually for any other theater...

What about the Balkans in OF? I mean this is not a special version of Balkans, other than the installer done by Couby. Could you not do the same thing to get it working with RV?

Guys, where can I get the latest "free" Balkans theater which will not piss off LP if I convert it to the PMC Theater Naming convention and create installer with UI/skins/db for RV and OF.

Whats the version number of this ... version, if there is such number?

I have this old "Falcon4SP3BalkanTheater" but this isn't compatible with any BMS based exe... had to run Bird's all-in-one or fix by hand the missing stuff... but basically AFAIK that's the Blakans version... all newer version are just patches to make it BMS-compatible... no real theater fix in it. i think.

Anyway this is a pretty OK theater i'd say... i flew it in campaign with RV for a couple of missions and it was all fine going... but again you will probably find some broken stuff on it...

As I posted before, if someone points out the latest "free" version of Balkans theater, a one I can use without getting into trouble with LP. I could then patch it to be compatible with OF + RV and make installer for it.

Where is it? :)
