    Lost logins, passwords, etc...

    Gentlemens, last time I have received a lot of "lost login", "lost password" (FreeHost) "why i can't post..." (Forum), etc. mails.
    Now I'm working hard on the project (my job), we are in cut-over phase, so don't wait a response from me - I have no free time at all.

    Sorry.

    Archer

    P.S. About "why I can't post..." - in 90% cases - you did't read carefully registration response from forum. Check your mail carefully - will be something about "activation code" - link to click.

    I'd add one rule here:


    Crossposting is forbidden. The usual penalty is deleting such messages from this forum, or even banning from this forum.


    Crossposting is posting the same message in several forums/echoes/groups, and it violates netiquette. There's two reasons for this:
    1.Usually such message is off-topic
    2.Usually it irritates readers of these forums.

    Right place for messages depends on it's contents:

    hardware, operation system, game installation problems are for Hardware and Software forum.

    in-game errors or unexpected features (such as aircraft performance or game rules) of running warbirds is subject of Game Bugs

    if warbirds runs ok, but you still have problems as a player (not computer user), and if you have questions about in-game tactics, as well as warbirds tuning, must be sent into Help and Training

    recruitment and other squadron announcements must be discussed in Squadrons

    in-game scenarios, tournaments and similar events are announced and discussed in Scenario/Tournament/Squad Missions

    topics dedicated for pictures, wether these are screenshots, photos, game-tracks must be posted in Screenshots and Images

    football, formula1, other sports and various themes not related to freehost, warbirds, and aviation put to Offtopic

    Go to Complaints about administrative excess of authority

    for aces high, maddoxil2, ww2online go to corresponding forum.

    Sorry for that, but I must take this decision as usurpator of International forum.

    Is anybody interested in updating this information?
    Maybe we should use WiKi.
    Here is an example.

    for volunteers, how to complain about badly made flight model of some airplane

    test top speed at 1000m
    1)log in to test/training arena
    2)fuel 100%
    3)start test at 1000m (nowadays, 2008/08, from f1) with wep
    4).startlog myspeed
    5)when speed stops growing .stoplog
    6)send log to developers
    [7)find historical references about top speed and add as an appendix]
    [8)point differences between fhl and irl values]

    tests can be conducted at any altitudes you are interested in.
    by 2008/08 f2 has airstart at 2000m, f3 3000m and so on.
    if these arena settings are erased, you can climb to needed altitude.

    test sustained turn rate
    1)log in to test/training arena
    2)fuel 100%
    3)start test at 1000m (nowadays, 2008/08, from f1) with wep, flaps according to IRL flight manual.
    4).startlog myturn
    5)make 10 turns as quick as possible, keeping altitude ±20m*
    6).stoplog
    7)load myturn.log table to msexcel, calculate average turn time of 3 circles which has stable speed, ±10km/h
    8)send log to developers
    [9) find historical references about turn time and add as an appendix]
    [10)point differences between fhl and irl values]

    *if you are sure that speed keeps stable, you do not ought execute all 10 turns. if fact 3 circles in sustained regime is enough.

    test climb rate
    1)log in to test/training arena
    2)fuel 100%
    3)start from non-mountain, and not too raised airfield
    4)take off and autolevel at about 100-200m
    5).setspeed 160 for fighters and 140 for bombers
    6)switsh to autospeed autopilot
    7)adjust throttle so autospeed maintains altitude
    8).startlog myclimb
    9)after stabilising altitude apply full throttle and turn on WEP
    10).stoplog when you decide that test is finished
    11)send log to developers
    [12)find historical references about climb rate and add as an appendix]
    [13)point differences between fhl and irl values]

    report of period of WEP
    1)find entire flight manual of airplane discussed, underline times of WEP usage.
    2)point difference between fhl and irl values
