    Its OK, My brother FlyMax had a link to a single download file that sets up everything in one install. Maps cockpits KB fix, etc etc. Of course one would still need to manually go into their win 7 settings for the dropdown menu fix themselves. But other than that took care of everything else. Thanks for the looking though I do appreciate it. Not sure who runs this site but here is the link I used.

    If I took the time to follow instructions and did this thing, would I be rewarded by competing against two Russians, in JU52s, who formed a line, inviting ANYONE TO TRY TO PASS, who are invincible?
    Go and fly all alone, and thing, well, no-one is here, I am gonna go blast a field, and drop troops myself, then......
    OH, THINK SO?
    POP up comes those two guys with the JU52s [yes, those guys, they use JU52s as fighter planes, you know who they are, right?]. After being shot down by JU-52s, I quickly lose my appetite, and go back to the WB, where it is possible, to sometimes, get a kill [Lots of players, some of them are not so good, so I can feel good, sometimes]

    PS: I will try those instructions, maybe I will find an opponent who has terrible palsy or something [or drunk]

    PPS: I am not complaining about being bested ALL THE TIME, now and then.
    I am not, nor ever was, worthy competition as a fighter jock. That is one of the reasons I liked to use Buffs [never mind the Snoopy Plane, which I used [and will again, if I make this thing work] LOTS, whenever I could, see, using a snoopy plane was not war-winning stuff, it was purely fun, but buffs help RED.
    After having the sound card go into a loop for the fifth time, and having to restart windows, for the fifth time, I am having a break, but will come back after my break. Maybe, if I can get THIS THING WORKING I will so someone I remember in the arena...
    I do have a fantasy of coming to the STUPID IEN WB and having some companions from The Old Days with me, that would be cool. But I doubt it happening. The IEN WB just is not the same, not even close. Except there are some Sim Combats and such, pft.

    Its instructions to install the game on win 7, nothing more. The freehost server is the same as before. But agree that fewer and fewer people are playing.

    If my memory serves me right you can use ".plane xxx" command.

    Or, while scrolling down the list in the 'choose a plane' box, you can scroll SLOWLY up and down through the list, but [in my PC] it error exits the game when I do it quickly, but not carefully and slowly.
