I like this program, random missions are good. You never know what is going to happen.

 

Few points though...

 

Mig-29 tarcap and cap missions - too long a range, mig-29A wingmen get low on fuel quickly and abandon me in mission - I know I can change loadouts to add more fuel though.

 

Program will not run on some PCs, there is some requirement (I think Java), is it possible to state what Java VM or version is requirerd to run it.

 

I can get it to run at only one PC at work and I make the missions then take them home and try them there, they are pretty good.

Thank you for the comment, Jace.

OK, I think I can make Migs operate only from the airbases closer to the target area.

LockOn has an annoying bug that AI planes can not use external fuel. So some aircrafts like MiG-29 can not fly long range.

Sorry, I forgot to tell .NET Framework is needed to run this. You can get it free from Microsoft.

 

And, Beta2 is coming soon...

This sounds GREAT! Exactly what I've been waiting for...can't wait to get home and try it.

 

BTW, I tried running it at work (just to see what it's like) and it wouldn't run. Do you need LOMAC installed for it to work properly?...I'd assume so. I've got the latest DotNet updates, too.

It should run without LOMAC installed. Maybe I messed up the code somewhere...

 

There is probability in the future to create campaign mode?

And (or) MisGen for DCS?

Thnx.

 

There will be campaign mode. The whole project is designed to make it possible. But please do not expect too much. The system will be very simple. And there are no plans for DCS at this moment. Actually I don't have DCS yet.

 

I get an error when running RaMGen.exe: "RaMGen has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.".

 

Do I need to put it somewhere or do I just unzip and double-click on RaMGen.exe and it should work?

 

You can just unzip and run RaMGen.exe. Please check your .NET Framework is up-to-date. I will check the code, too.

Okay, I got mine to work. You need dotNet 3.5. I had 1.1, 2.0, and 3.0.

Works like a charm now!

 

GREAT program. I'm havin' a blast with it. It's nice to load up the kinda mission you want to fly, in the aircraft you want, and just go blow stuff up. The Fast Battle Planner is too simple, and the stock missions I've played too many times!

 

This is exactly what the "Doctor" ordered! ;) Keep it up!

Just had an awesome mission in a blinding snow storm with A-10s! Our mission was to take out a bunker. Stuff was happening all around us... F-117 ferry flights, Tornado's on SEAD, just amazing!

 

Now if you can just come out with the random campaign generator, I will be in heaven.

 

Thanks DoctorK!

This has the potential of being one of the greatest mods ever. I am REALLY impressed.

 

I flew a mission last night that was completely awesome. I was leading a flight of Fulcrums to hit a military base at night. Sure enough, the FAC came around and lit the area with flares so we could see it. Rolled in and AAA started to come up. Very nerve-racking.

 

When I finally returned to base (barely), there was an Su-25T ferry flight taking off from the airfield, and another Cargo flight incoming. Loved it... and it's so damn simple to customize and use.

 

Hat's off to you sir...one question, though:

 

Where were you 4 years ago??????? :D

yea I have been using it a lot. my suggestion: is it possible to add duration of the flight. For example, we start off close to the battlefield or far from the battlefield...etc.

OK, I will add the option to the next version which will be released soon with campaign mode.

Any chance of making it CAW compatable?

Remember the 346 Fire Fighters, Medics & Police who died on 9-11.......

 

Selective memory is a wonderful thing, especially when certain posts simply disappear into the ether never to be seen again, unless I have a copy of the original post copied and pasted into word documents and saved .... just in case :)

Am I an abusive idiot ?

 

Due to physical incapacity my Wife types my post's for me

OK

 

Just to make sure, I downloaded XP SP3 and installed, installed .net 3.5 again, everything is good and still I get the same error message, do you have any idea DoctorK?

[sIGPIC][/sIGPIC]

In DCS I fly jets with thousands of pounds of thrust...

In real life I fly a humble Cessna Hawx XP II with 210 HP :D

I have received same error report at lockonfiles.com and I am investigating the issue right now. I think I can sort it out without taking much time.

And please move to the newer RaMGen thread to prevent confusions. Thank you.
