  2. Discord keeps kicking me?

    Once again, I have reviewed all Server Settings and permissions, and there is no VG specific setting or Bot that is kicking you out. We have no AFK monitor, and no system in place to do anything to people who have gone AFK. I have gone ahead and googled your problem and found many users who have experienced your exact issue, of course, not on the VG Discord. This issue seems to be part of the Discord code itself, in one such post I saw that the user reported it gone after a Discord update. Basically, we have no control over this, Discord does not operate like our TeamSpeak where we have direct control over everything from a program that is actually installed on our server. Best wishes and good luck to you!
  3. See you later!

  4. Ban Appeal!

    Hey, no worries, guys -- it's a video game and it's not perfect; glitches happen. Seems you were somehow able to rejoin, but you are indeed banned for now, and it has not been lifted yet (for the record). Please do not attempt to rejoin the server until someone from this forum thread has informed you that you're unbanned. Rejoining our server and playing while banned (by taking advantage of some glitch in the code) will not look good on your record as we investigate your Unban Request. Please be patient and respect our PR Admin's wishes. Thank you! This is the stage we are at now:

  6. Teamkill Ban Appeal (CicadaPeepee IG)

    I'm just gonna say this once and hope that both players and our PR Admins learn something -- sometimes we ban someone when necessary to cease behavior knowing that it will open up a dialog in the forums during an Unban Request thread, as we are doing here. Not saying that is what happened in this case, but we're here now, so why waste an opportunity... The constructive criticism being raised here is not intended to hurt your feelings but to get a word in edgewise to tell you how to move forward if you continue to play on our server(s). Regardless of the matter of your ban, assuming your are unbanned after all of this, you must understand the following things or you'll find yourself right back here before too long: This is not a training server - while it's okay to play while you learn as Infantry, this is not okay in vehicles and we expect you to learn how to operate those proficiently offline or elsewhere. Your use of the in-game chat system is bordering on spam because you average at least 3 messages every minute, and it's easier to count the minutes you didn't chat up than those you did while you were online. While we encourage communication, we also encourage brevity. Doesn't matter if it's Squad Chat or All Chat - you need to dial it way back. Our Admin Team will expect you to learn and adhere to the rules of our server, and while some information may be offered, the burden is upon you to educate yourself in our rules and SOP's, and you're expected to avoid any discussion or arguments about rules/SOP's with Admins during gameplay.
  7. GOG has a decent sale going on right now; picked up a pair of classics for less than a fiver -- Sid Meier's Pirates (the 2004 remake) and Railroad Tycoon 3
    Always nice to put a few more cheap titles in the rainy-day games bin :dirol:

  8. wrong ACDATA files

    First, you list 4.33.4 U5 -- if there is a typo, that is okay, but U5 is: 4.33.5 Build 16084 Let's be sure we are on the same page with the updates, so launch BMS and check the lower right corner of the main menu - be sure it looks like this: One easy thing you can do is to copy and move your modded Acdata folder to the side, and use a clean un-modified version for use on Public Servers such as ours. When you want to play offline or elsewhere using mods or custom items, you can move the modded Acdata folder back into position. Be sure BMS is not running when you move these folders around. The path to this folder is: (your programs folder)\Falcon BMS 4.33 U1\Data\Sim Here's a copy of a default un-modified Acdata folder for 4.33.5 (U5) from my own installation: https://www.dropbox.com/s/m7v7oxvid329ped/Acdata.zip?dl=0 I keep that folder at that link until the next update, and usually do it for every update - if you ever get mixed up and need a fresh unmodified Acdata folder, just refer to that link. I might get it into the Downloads section here for easy reference, because basically it's the go-to fix for the error you posted.
  9. AFK?

    Take care and fly safe! See you when you get time!
  10. BMS CTD

    Not sure off the top of my head, cannot remember the last time I had to deal with a crash log. You may find more selective help on THIS issue on the BMS forums, as the devs themselves (as well as several long time members) have far more collective knowledge between them. We could try all day here, but I'd feel you'd not be getting the expert help you deserve cuz we're just taking shots in the dark. Chances are, over at the BMS sim's actual forums, someone has helped someone else out in the last 18 years who had your exact set of issues and PC hardware.
  11. Hello world!

    Hello and welcome! Study hard and don't forget to enjoy the journey! Painful at first, but as you know from civi flight sim, the rewards are worth it in the end. The Training Missions found under Tactical Engagement follow the Training Manual in your programs folder\Falcon BMS 4.33 U1\Docs\Falcon BMS Manuals\BMS-Training.pdf Don't necessarily need to do them in order, so if you get bored after completing Basic Handling, feel free to move on to learning how to use a weapon system (AA or AG, and one or two of the weapon types for those modes). FTR, Air to Air refueling is considered by many to be one of the most difficult procedures to complete, and when we fly multi-player flights, we rarely assume that everyone is AAR trained, and therefore rarely use it (landing at a friendly air strip will always suffice to refuel in a pinch). Just know that going in, maybe you'll love it and be good at it - but don't assume we ALL are pro's at AAR. It's the stretch goal of the BMS combat sim trainee, IMHO. Regarding setting up controls and knowing what you'll need to know and push often, and what you can leave to the 3D cockpit where you just use the mouse to click around the cockpit, check out Jeffu's blog (part 1 and 2) on the topic of Keybindings and in-game controls you'll want to setup:
