  1. Hi there

    I am on falcon lounge (and others) same as you
  2. Hi there

    This port testing tool is suggested by the 185th VFS Simple Port Tester V3.0 https://simple-port-tester.en.uptodown.com/windows
  3. Hi there

    There is a simple tool to test for bms port issues but regret I not have the url. Shout me on discord for some testing if you like.
  4. Hi there

    Yes thats the ip. Standard KTO theatre, BW setting must be 2048 its working fine and was at the time stamp you had issue. Try again ? Possible firewall issue ? Port forwarding ?
  5. Hi there

    Time zones can be an issue but the benefit of the VG 24/7 server is it gives more opportunity to meet other players. Especially if you spread the word

    Jive Turkey streamed his bms flight on 27th Dec and its had over 3000 views. Certainly no stranger to bms :-D
  7. Jive Turkey

    Hello and welcome. I saw a pilot `Turkey` briefly on the server this morning but he/you did not fly a mission. Any problems just shout.
  8. BMS Re Start Notification

    Day 1 again after 26 days of reasonably trouble free running.
  9. Request for a Carrier based Harrier Squadron?

    Just curious but how does being on carrier improve missions ? Its just further to fly. Originally the harrier was about being able to operate from improvised bases if you can call a farm yard or clearing in a wood a base.
  10. BMS crash reports

    OK Fixed !! and last save loaded up. Come get it whilst its hot
  11. Introducing Myself

    Welcome . Its unfortunate that a rare problem has made the bms server unavailable at this time but yes online is a good way to speed up learning the sim as long as you also do the reading. Plenty of people available to get you `online` through the initial hurdles.
  12. BMS crash reports

    Server may be down until sometime on the 6th due to an issue with the host computer. If it can be fixed sooner it will be of course.
  13. BMS Re Start Notification

    Once again......... Re start to Day 1 Korea KTO
  14. BMS crash reports

    The only ACDATA relevant I would think is the one in your data/sim folder. Must have been changed by some mod ? Approx 16mb in entirety though there may be some single file within it effected. Backups are best.
  15. BMS Re Start Notification

    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
  16. BMS Re Start Notification

    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.
  17. BMS Re Start Notification

    Day 22 and nothing moving out there. Re-started Day 1
  18. BMS Re Start Notification

    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.
  19. BMS Re Start Notification

    Well 3 weeks + 1 day was my choice so sounds like that fits with comments so far
  20. BMS Re Start Notification

    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).
  21. Saying Hi (again)

    Hi Schmidtrock, the VG bms server is ideal for "BMS noob pilot " . What pilot name should we look out for ?
