      Falcon BMS Server Update: New Minimum Connection Bandwidth Requirement - Increased to 2048   12/10/2017

      As of December 10th 2017, the Required Minimum Connection Bandwidth for all clients is now forced to 2048.  In addition, the former config entry denying potential P2P connection types has been removed.  Both of these changes are due to reports of increased server and client multiplayer stability, and we are hoping to see the same improvements here as well.  Please report anything unusual while playing in the coming week so we can asses the benefits of this change.  Thank you!

Ok fresh start to day1 as no sign of an official win for the team and that seems to be the norm since a long time.

 

Was day 26 and while up to that point there had been plenty of red ground tgts there was little if any sign of blue movement.  As an experiment I saved current situation and ran in x32 offline for 18 hrs but no real advance. Also did the same with all squadrons reverted to HQ but no difference. Perhaps not surprising as the air war HAD been won already.

If there were an obvious group of regular users then it might be reasonable to poll for what majority wanted max campaign length to be but since that's not current situation I think an arbitrary number of 22 days might be the norm in future though I was still having fun at day 26. New arrivals to the server might be put off by overly `quiet` state of play but to totally avoid that maybe a max of day 5 would be needed. (which would not be MY preference).

Thank you.

I like the campaign going for several weeks.  I'd like to continue in this fashion, and we'll take it as it comes.  If there are issues or it's completely dry and dull, there is no reason we can't just restart to Day 1, though.  Feel free to use your best judgement.

Well 3 weeks + 1 day was my choice so sounds like that fits with comments so far :)

Found server had crashed during my  off watch rest period. Last auto save was around 1am but 4 hrs or so passed so re started to approx what it would have been to keep the daylight where expected.

Server re started to last save.

Now day 25 but blue forces seem to be moving west so worth some more time/effort in hope of a win.

Definitely would like to see how this plays out.  Jeffu and I hit some tank battalions in East Pyongyang and some A-10C's were also dropping bombs in the area.  Static said he's been hoping to see this one to the end as well, so let's keep up the pressure!

War seems to be over despite as often no satisfying announcement. The usual `bad timing` and A.I flying only Tarcaps etc. No strikes.

So restarted Day 1

Thank you very much, Cobalt! I thought I was gonna be flying today, and my body was all "I don't think so, bucko!" - it's 6pm and I'm finally feeling better, so I'm hoping and praying I'll be there tomorrow.  I LOVE the first days of the war!!  Dodging SAM's and chucking spears at MiG's -- a little piece of heaven!
