FA Windows 7 Start Batch File Available 12/6/11
I have uploaded a small batch file I recieved from Kewell 77th. It ends the Windows Explorer task before launching Fighters Anthology, and then allows the task to be restarted easily when FA is exited. This can solve graphics problems and other issues when using Windows 7. To ensure the file launches Fighters Anthology, right click on the batch file, choose "Edit" (alternatively, open the file in a text editor such as Notepad or Wordpad), and check the directory path the file points to when it launches FA. It is on the Files page.
Jane's F/A-18 Voice Sound Effects Libraries Available 11/15/11

JKPFA 5.3 Beta 7/14/10
A new version of my lib is available from the Libraries page.
Fighters Anthology Compact Patch 4/19/10
A new patch made for Fighters Anthology by Gerwin Broers has been added to the Files page. Called Fighters Anthology Compact, the patch is for use with the No-CD Patch, and modifies FA_2.LIB so campaigns work with just an empty FA_4C.LIB file, instead of full
size FA_4C.LIB and FA_7.LIB.
This enables a compact but fully functional FA installation, at around 60 MB.
JKPFA 5.2 Beta 7/7/09
A new beta version of my lib is available from the Libraries page. There have been a number of changes, improvements, graphical additions, etc.
Map Added To Reorganized Maps and Music Page 6/4/09
I have created a Windows XP and Vista compatible version of Cold War Fighter's Mid West/Great Plains USA map. The original map was created by MiGSlayer and Wedge, and I have simply rebuilt it, replacing a few custom parked aircraft scenery objects with default Fighters Anthology fuel trucks. Screenshot 1, 2, 3.
The map is available on the new Maps and Music page. I seperated custom Fighters Anthology maps and music libraries from the rest of the libraries so the pages load faster.
Retextured France Map, Pilot Breath Sound, Final Mission Objects Link Added 5/30/09
From the maker of the Ukraine Maps comes a new France map. The map has been retextured with textures originally created by Gaz for European Air War. Screenshot 1, 2, 3, 4.
It is available in the
maps section of the Libraries page new Maps and Music page.
Additionally, the same author has sent an audio file to replace Valk001.11k. It is the sound of a pilot breathing into a flight mask, and can be activated in flight by pressing CTRL-V. It is available on the Libraries page.
Finally, the USNF Final Mission Japanese buildings and destroyed shapes originally provided by JJ are available on the Libraries page. They had been linked to from the USNF files page, but the FA Libraries page is a more conspicuous place. Screenshot 1, 2.
Ukraine Season Specific Maps Added 5/9/09
Three new Ukraine maps have been added to the Fighters Anthology Maps section of the libraries page. They are at the bottom of the alphabetical ordered list. The maps use Summer, Fall, and Winter textures originally made by Max188 for European Air War. The maps also use the MM file made by Centurian for object locations, such as Chernobyl. Summer screenshot 1, 2, Fall screenshot, Winter Screenshot 1, 2.
Maps, Missions Added 3/29/09
Mission sets by Shawn M have been added to the USNF 97 Files page. These can be easily modified to be Fighters Anthology compatible as well. The sets are a Ukraine Campaign, and a set entitled "Ho's Own II", in which the player flies as the Peoples' Air Force of Vietnam. Also, I have added Windows XP and Vista compatible Israel and US Southwest maps to the Fighters Anthology Maps section. These maps were originally created by MiGSlayer and Wedge for the Cold War Fighters library. I have made the maps to be compatible with default Fighters Anthology, or any custom library.
