New flight model and damage model. Plane models have been updated too as well as some textures.
A proper "MissGen.txt" has been added to make it playable with Pat Wilson's MissionGen.
Aircrats specifications that you can read in game are actual ones; date of appearance is not set to historical time but just add 2 years - e.g.: 1917=1919!
Replaced Nieuport 24 with the more historical 24bis.

Eastern Front 1916-1917

The war in the East did not involve as many planes as did the Western Front, in fact, the planes usually were 6 months to a year behind the Western front. Castoffs were common, like the SSW D1 (a nieuport clone), the SPAD A2, the Roland D2, and others which had been long removed from the skies over France.
The Russian Revolution took Russia out of the war in Dec 1917, although German and Austrian aviation units were still stationed there until the end of the war (just to keep an eye on things).

German Balloon for Red Baron 3D

German Balloon
The Parseval-Sigsfeld kite-balloon was first to combine advantages of spherical balloon and man-lifting kite, the two device available at that time for aerial observation. In 1896, the two german officers designed their "Drachen" (later nicknamed "Sausage" by Allies), getting both qualities of balloon and kite, that's to say to be able to ascend in a calm (when the kite would be useless) and kept from rotating and oscillating in a high wind, as does the ordinary captive balloon.
This model covers german balloon in use along western front, in the single slot available for german forces. Shape and detail has been improved adding many faces in respect to stock model. Suited intact and damaged skins are included. It features also high and medium detail models.

Hangar for Red Baron 3D

Hangar
Soon after airplane appearance, need for its sheltering became urgent. Early hangars were made of canvas. Most common on allied side was the Bessonneau, which use started in January 1915 and was prolonged up to 1930s. Built in various sizes, the one here represented is the 20m x 24m, that's to say 66x79'. Having an overall height of 25'5" and 13'2" at sides, it was a 6 bay, light timber structure, covered with canvas.
This model replaces stock wooden "Large hangar" and, having historical dimensions, looks significantly smaller than previous, enormous shelter (which was more than 165' wide - 50m). I gave it a mix of colours, just a rough conversion of what I had to RB palette: please consider it a coarse template and feel free to repaint bitmaps at your will. Included, are high, medium and low details model.

Hell's Angels - Albatros D5 wing internal view fix

This mini-patch is suited for Hell's Angels "SuperPatch" and Hell's Angels Gold, by Otto von Stachel.

Hell's Angels - Halberstadt D.II and DH2 fix

Theses three mini-patches is suited for Hell's Angels "SuperPatch" and Hell's Angels Gold, by Otto von Stachel.
Halberstadt D.II wings span fix:
Pat Wilson's Halberstadt D.II has upper and lower wings of equal span; this is historically not correct, since they was respectively 28'11" and 25'11" . This patch shows the actual spans in Hell's Angels.
Halberstadt D.II internal view of radiator fix:
In original Hell's Angels radiator viewed from cockpit in virtual internal view (F2) is shifted to left, so that wing strut looks fitted in its centre. This mini-patch relocates radiator to the correct position.
DH2 cockpit internal view fix:
In original Hell's Angels the centre part of cockpit doesn't fit with the upper part, leaving two black corner on each side along the rim. This mini-patch fixes that problem.

Hell's Angels Super Patch - Cockpit models

This is a modification to have a closer to reality player's point of view in "virtual cockpit" (F2) of Red Baron 3D patched with HASP.
It has been moved forth while wings and their struts have been generally lowered to get a layout as close as possible to historical one.
Where applicable, wing chord and its incidence have been made more realistic. Original or at least scaled drawings have been used as reference.
Not all flyable have been revised yet.

Hell's Angels Super Patch - 6th RNAS and cockpit models

6th RNAS patch
This is a patch to have N6 Naval Squadron, servicing Nieuports 17bis; it replaces Sopwith Snipe while 6th RNAS shares same "slot" with 43rd RFC which supersedes on 29 august.
Nieuport 17bis also replaces Nieuport 24 only in "elite" french units, simulating too the mixed presence of Nieuport 24bis, almost identical.
Some "asimmetrical" cockpits have been added, to better simulate aiming position (SPAD 13, Camel, Albatros D2, D3 and D5, Nieuport 24).
In addition, some upper wing bottoms have been refined and rudders colored.
Since flight model has been revised to accomodate Nie.17bis(*), its ailerons effectiveness has been improved, as well as that of all other Nieuports (11, 24 and "standard" 17).
Gotha is now flyable by AI too. If used in conjunction with Gabilaser's ReLoad with "Front Guns" option enabled, you'll see recon two-seaters fighting back using also their fixed forward machinegun.
A proper MissGen.txt has been added. Slightly corrected Pfalz D XII equivalent wingspan (according to Munk's factor).
Improved many gunsights (that of Dr I even simulates an Oigee reflector gunsight). Aircrats specifications that you can read in game are now actual ones.
New in version 10:
Improved shape for all two-seats rear internal view. Added some gray tyres for more realism. revised MissGen.txt to reduce crash risks. Eventually corrected "Chachy" aerodrome to "Cachy". Some more minor refinement.

OpenGlide Wrapper 008

This is a modified version of the OpenGlide wrapper 008. In earlier versions you had to limit texture memory to 2MB or 4MB in the glide options to avoid graphic corruption. This version can be used with more memory without graphic corruption and you can set 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128 or 256 MB of texture memory in OpenGlide.ini. Also you should modify the display frequency to match the best for your monitor and in-game resolution. E.g. for a CRT monitor, something around 100, for a LCD, something around 70. But check your display properties first. For faster game play, set Sun glare to off in Red Baron Realistic preferences.

Parachute Date Patch

Parachute Date Patch Parachute Date Patch
The Germans began to issue Heinecke parachutes to their fighter pilots early in 1918. Successful use of the chutes in combat are recorded from late Spring on. From 150801 - 180419 both the stock falling pilot and stock burning pilot are replaced by a modified falling pilot. From 180420 onwards the stock falling pilot is replaced by a modified parachuting pilot and the stock burning pilot is replaced by a modified falling pilot. The stock parachuting balloonist is replaced by a modified version from 150801 onwards. You will need to use Tymophil's Campaign Editeur to bring your pilot back to life. The Campaign Editor can be downloaded from Flybert's Chateau.

Windows XP Fix

There's a known problem with missing sounds in Red BaronII/3D if you have a USB joystick.
One workaround is to delete your rbprefs.dat or mpprefs.dat every time you are going to play.
Here's a set of batch files to make the workaround much easier, no need to delete these files manually any more!
Create shortcuts to the batch files and use these shortcuts when you want to start Red Baron or Red Baron Multiplayer instead of the usual shortcuts.
