Juvat, Help me with JAS!

Recommended Posts

Jim,I bought Janes Attack Squadron last week and have come to really like it! I am one of the few i am afraid.... I think one of the strongest reason for why i like it is that i feel quite at home ;-) For example, many of the key-bindings are just the same as in FU3. The light and reflections from the sun feel just right and you feel very much "there" and in control. As i know you are something of a "fish in the water" when it comes to JAS i simply have to ask you: "Where are the downloads?" The issue is that i seem to be unable to locate any add-ons at all for it!?I have found a few here at AVSIM but there really must be more, right?No matter what, JAS is my cup of tea :D (So far anyway...)// Daniel

Hello Daniel,There are more files available, but not much(yet), but they are there. I sent you an e-mail with links. I wanted to post it here, but I had a "squirrely" thing happen to me at Simhq, so sent you my intended post reply via e-mail.I recieved an e-mail from the Thief Bin to E author a few weeks back. He has successfully begun to create bin files to the Jas format, so progress is moving on. His bin2E tool is essential for Jas; as we need to be able to improve the quality of existing aircraft models (and beyond) to gain more participation.Many improvements have been made already within the combat.gam courtesy of good ole Wil. You can read and learn how to apply these by reading his posts at simhq.com.If you are going to create models for the sim, remember the 3ds tool for Jas will work fine if you remember to apply the -mo switch with-in your batch file.You'll find at the Jas forum that original Looking Glass Studios gurus post there from time to time.I suspect an engrossing Roman Polaski movie could be made of the Jas development. Old Lgs team vs new, vs new publishers, vs new developer. It promises to be quite a spin. Thankfully the original LGS designers(we've found) "accidently" left features in the resources that the Publishers seems to have ordered "out". And piggy-backing on the other post "who has rights to develope Fu4". That movie would probably raise a lot of popcorn sales.I'm very-very excited that a fellow of your caliber has found Jas enjoyable.If your itching to take a stare at Jas' textures, just rename the ".crf" files to zip. Then any un-zipping program can open them for you. Just remember to not have the un-zip and crf in the Jas directory. Reports are that Jas becomes confused and cdt's. I have mine unzipped in my Jas install and have the crf's set aside should I ever bungle and ruin the unzipped files.Take care Daniel,Jim B.
