Mission Plane/Ship Utilities for Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator 2 WWII Pacific Theater. I have created several self-contained utility programs for helping debug CFS2 missions, when missing airplanes or ships is the issue. No additional pieces or parts are needed to run these programs other than having CFS2 installed and operational. This package contains various enhancements to the previously released versions for CFS1. The set of programs for CFS2 does not work with CFS1, and vice-versa. This is by design, so not to confuse the issue, each is separate of the other. By Paul Hauschildt. 560K
CFS2 Improved Quick Combat file. This Quick Combat file re-arranges the stock aircraft into more logical classifications.

Instfiles: Here's a little program that can help install files, whether to CFS1, CFS2 or anywhere on a drive. Create a control file that tells it what to do and where. Put all the files to install, the control file and this program into a single directory and run it. The program will put all the files into the indicated directories, whether planes, missions, campaigns, scenery or some other file type. It can install, rename or delete files depending on what the control file tells it to do. Have CFS(1 or 2) in some other directory, no problem as you can pick the directory to start in. You can even install non CFS files. PCH Paul Hauschildt. 134K

CFS2Utils_Upload.zip: I've been involvement in several utils for CFS2 in the past. Whether changing settings, AI Promoter, finding planes in missions or missing, looking for errors in your Airbases or plane dp file, or any of the prior utils, they all only worked on 1 install of CFS2. These are all the same utils for CFS2, except now they can handle up to 5 different installs/copies of CFS2 on you computer. If you have 1 install of CFS2 and have the prior release of the utils, there's nothing really new here except a enhancement to the DCG Checker. If you have 2-5 installs/copies of CFS2, this can work for you. Set up the ini and you're ready PCH Paul Hauschildt. 2MB

Tailgunner 2 by steveiy ( tg2_1_0d.zip) Description This patch allows CFS bomber pilots to aim their guns and drop bombs in multiplayer games. Features: 1. Multiplayer bombs All players equipped with TG2 can now drop bombs (and see each other drop bombs). 2. Improved gunnery Gun pointing is now referenced to the cursor in all views, allowing stock aircraft to be used. 3. Brunhost support Distance at which a) labels are displayed and b) target lock is possible can now be set for enhanced no-FUN games. This feature only works in Brunhost games. 4. Anti-ramming Anti-ramming reduces (but does not eliminate) the chances of dying in a collision. Basically, if someone deliberately rams you, you might survive. If you deliberately ram them, you die just like before. See the section on known bugs. Very important .385K
