Flacon BMS 4.34 - Full installer

Link a Benchmarksims

Ladies and Gentlemen:

on behalf of the entire BMS development team, I am happy to announce that the latest iteration of the BillionSoft Falcon 4.0 total conversion modification - Benchmark Sims 4.34 - is available for you to enjoy as of RIGHT NOW!

BMS 4.34 requires a legit installation of a Falcon 4.0 (all older and newer versions are accepted alike, i.e. Microprose, Hasbro, GOG, Steam, Retroism). The check is performed both at setup time and every time you start BMS. If no valid installation is found, BMS will exit with a corresponding error message.

This mod may not be used for any commercial purposes. Any such use may constitute a violation of the intellectual property of Billion Soft (Hong Kong) and the non-commercial Terms and Conditions under which Benchmark Sims make this mod available to you.

BMS 4.34 is our most complex update yet. The team has gone to great lengths to create and update the most detailed Falcon manuals available ever. So once you installed 4.34, please check out the "documentation" section and the various manuals, you'll probably find all of your questions answered there.

Please check chapter 2 "Feature Overview" of the BMS 4.34 manual from page 8 to 11 in particular:

Código: [Seleccionar]

2. Feature Overview

2.1 New Radio Management

BMS 4.34 fixed a long-lasting issue with AI auto-magically following all radio frequency changes made by the
player, making it impossible to create a more realistic use of radios. ATC and AWACS changes explained below
led to a major rewrite of radio management code. Human players and AI must now be on the same frequency
to communicate, just as in real-life. Discrete frequencies are tied to callsigns, so in most cases will be unique to
that callsign, though frequencies will still have presets assigned, visible in the briefing section of the UI.

More detailed information about the new radio management can be found in the BMS COMMS and NAV book,
in your Docs folder.

2.2 New ATC

Air Traffic Control agencies at airbases have been completely reimagined. Every airbase now uses multiple UHF
frequencies for managing traffic; OPS, GROUND, TOWER, APPROACH/DEPARTURE and ATIS (which is on VHF)
are all modelled. The use of VHF (except for ATIS) is not recommended as none of the new control agencies
have a VHF frequency.

ATC AI code also has been completely rewritten, allowing for a much more realistic experience probably never
seen before in a combat flight simulator. ATC is now able to manage AI and human players in a more realistic
manner, considering flights as single ATC entities. The ground frequency is much more efficient for managing
traffic on the airbase taxiways, the tower frequency will manage the final approach and departure on the active
runway and the approach frequency will offer a choice of multiple approach options depending on weather
and player intentions, such as IFR or visual approach, or even a standard overhead break for both AI and
human players.

Players are expected to follow ATC instructions and abide by ATC rules, which ultimately provide a much more
rewarding aviation experience, especially in busy TE/campaign scenarios with multiple flights in the queue.

Carriers Operations also have been completely updated from the ATC perspective, with more realistic Case 1
and Case 3 type control approaches now implemented, during which the new LSO (Paddles) will guide the pilot
to the touch down point.

More information about the new ATC can also be found in the BMS COMMS and NAV book in your Docs folder.

2.3 IFF implementation

Identification Friend or Foe, one of the most requested features on the BMS public forum, has now been
implemented. Aircraft are now equipped with a transponder and in some cases an interrogator too. The
transponder can emit a code for identification when challenged; aircraft equipped with an interrogator can also
interrogate other aircraft in various modes. Please note, just like in reality, not all aircraft (read not all F-16s)
are fitted with an Interrogator. Mode 1, 2, 3, 4 and C are all implemented realistically. Mode S is eye candy.

IFF events can change according to TIME or POSITION events. IFF policy is automatically assigned in TEs and
campaign and loaded in the DTC. It is also included on the much improved and detailed Briefing page in the UI.
IFF use is therefore very transparent to the user, assuming the DTC is loaded correctly. Each TE now features an
IFF file where the policy can be changed according to user’s specific plans, allowing complicated IFF plans to be
created. This file structure is explained in the new BMS technical manual. More information about IFF can be
found in the TO-BMS1F-16CM-1 (aka Dash-1) in your Docs folder.

2.4 Database changes

The BMS database has been cleaned to allow easier maintenance and simpler updates in future.
As a consequence, TEs or third-party mods may not be compatible with 4.34 and will need to be updated.

TEs can be converted from previous versions to 4.34 with Mission Commander.

2.5 New Campaigns

3 new campaigns have been added to the KTO theatre, bringing the total to 6. The 3 new ones provide fresh
challenging scenarios to KTO. These campaigns are still under development. More information about the new
campaigns can be found later in this manual.

2.6 New AWACS

Although not fully completed the main Tactical frequency has been rewritten, providing a much more realistic
experience when under the control of early warning radar aircraft. Picture calls now give detailed information
of up to 3 groups, calling out formations, azimuth and range and helping to build SA (situational awareness).

The tactical net is also now dedicated to your package which should lower comms traffic to manageable levels.
Gone are the days of listening to an engagement happening 150 miles away from your position, as you were
trying to survive an air to air engagement on your own.

More information about the new AWACS can be found in the BMS COMMS and NAV book in your Docs folder.

2.7 Artificial Intelligence

AI has become much smarter. Wingmen following ATC procedures or under AWACS control, SAM operators
using ambush and ‘blinking’ tactics, realistic BVR tactics used against you and by your wingmen under your
command; you will notice the difference. Respect them more as they will be more aggressive and provide more
of a challenge, particularly at higher AI skill levels, which are also differentiated better than before.

2.8 Weather changes

Weather has been further improved. Fmaps created for 4.33 are not compatible and need to be redone.
Default Fmaps are provided for the 4 usual weather states: Sunny, Fair, Poor and Inclement.

All visibility settings have been switched to metric which provides a much simpler way of creating weather.

Clouds have been reviewed and are better managed. For instance, the stratus layer has been replaced with
stratocumulus and nimbostratus clouds, providing a better experience when transitioning inside the layer.
Cloud coverage, base altitude and fog values are now embedded in the Fmap and configurable for each cell.
It is worth mentioning that real weather can be easily implemented in BMS using external tools such as F4Wx.
Airbases now feature windsocks, indicating wind direction and speed.

2.9 F-16 changes

Engine faults on the ground and in the air are now more realistically modelled; FTIT and OIL are now engine
parameters the virtual pilot must be very aware of too (especially during engine start).

Fuel gauges are no longer unrealistically reliable at low fuel levels and a new F-16 damage model means fuel
leaks and oil leaks are possible and you may encounter more failures than before following battle damage.

Cockpits have been updated to latest standards. Most visible will be the IFF panel replacing the AUX COMM
panel on newer (and upgraded) blocks and the EHSI replacing the HSI on CCIP jets.

Pilot model is now available as an option in the UI, or with a keystroke combination while in 3D. Kneeboards
can be easily edited using Weapon Delivery Planner.

2.10 Weapon changes

Ground to air and air to air missiles now have a proximity fuse and depending on the distance from their target
at time of explosion will generate different levels of damage. Previously missiles were simply hit or miss and
when they hit often made the jet explode right away.

A near-miss will be more likely to damage your F-16 now than before (although this also depends on the size of
the missile and its blast radius) and the challenge then becomes to get your wounded bird back on the ground
safely. This change was made possible thanks to the new damage model of the F-16.

Flare effectiveness and IR missile code has been updated as well and now behaves much more realistically.

SAM systems now feature both an Early Warning (Search) radar and a Fire Control Radar (FCR). Search radars
will be active much further away as you approach, allowing the FCR to stay silent, only emitting occasionally to
update their track, decide if you are within range and wait for the best moment to fire. Destroying the Search
radar will not prevent the SAM site from shooting at you, but it will force the FCR to emit more often, offering a
better chance for you to acquire it and make the hunter become the hunted!

2.11 Tools

Tools have been updated to help manage many aspects of BMS 4.34:
• WDP: Weapon Delivery Planner: http://www.weapondeliveryplanner.nl
• MC: Mission Commander: http://www.weapondeliveryplanner.nl
• WC: Weather Commander: http://www.weapondeliveryplanner.nl
• Korea Interactive Map for navigation in BMS KTO (including all charts):
  http://www.ravico.com/ST/BMS_KOREA_interactive/index.html
• F4Wx – Real Weather Converter (see BMS forum for download link)
• RTT Remote is a remote display extractor for MFDs and other instruments (Tools folder)

2.12 Documentation

The documentation suite has been updated to reflect the BMS 4.34 changes and is completely up to date:
• TO-BMS1F-16CM-1 (aka Dash-1) is about managing the F-16 as an aircraft.
• TO-BMS1F-16CM-34-1-1 (Dash-34) is about managing the F-16 as a weapon platform.
• The BMS TRAINING manual covers the 25 BMS training missions (some of them new for 4.34).
• The BMS COMMS and NAV book includes elements from the old Chart Tutorial (such as how to use the
  approach charts) and also covers the new radio and ATC changes.
• The BMS TECHNICAL manual is a detailed reference for those interested in customising or developing
  their BMS experience and gathers many single documents into one big technical order.
• The BMS Naval Ops document is dedicated to carrier-based operations with relevant aircraft types.
• The charts have been completely updated for the new airbase frequencies and approach types. A new
  type of approach chart was created to work with the ATC instrument approach: the RADAR chart.
• The key files and other Input Device files have been maintained and documented for 4.34.

And finally the Docs folder has been completely reviewed in the hope of making the Docs easier to find and
more user-friendly.

Here's some generic info that you probably want to be aware of:


The base 4.34 installation will take 7.81 GB of HDD space
For the Falcon BMS.exe and the Editor.exe, we only ship the 64bit version, the 32bit versions have been removed due to memory requirements
All other tools (IVC, RTT etc.) still have 32bit versions available, e.g. for use on other PCs
Windows 7 SP1 is the minimum supported OS version
Windows 7 SP1 requires the "platform update" (KB2670838) to be installed



Last not least, there are a number of known issues that will be resolved with future updates:

Tactical Reference: clicking on some entries can induce a CTD
A CTD can occur for the campaigns that run continuously for several days (save regularly, loading and continuing circumvents the CTD)
Enabling "Triple Buffering" in the config may lead to a black screen when entering 3D (also, do not use Triple Buffering with GSync/FreeSync)
On the "Setup -> Controllers" page the numpad keys are not shown correctly, e.g. "Num 7" is displayed as "7", this is true for all keys except Num Enter
When being promoted to Brig Gen the rank popup window shows 2nd Lt instead
ATIS frequencies are not auto-loaded in DCT with the comms plan button
ATIS is not stopping immediately after frequency change
L or T might show in HUD (beside ARM) to indicate Laser Armed when it is not
Wrong RadarCs value (RCS) for the Mirage 2000-9
TvT campaign: ATO is nearly empty (for all teams)
KTO campaigns (Tiger Spirit, Rolling Fire, Iron Fortress): DPRK ATO can currently be very poor
BAP-100 munition is not working as expected




Don't want to keep you waiting any longer... here it is:


A) The primary distribution method is by TORRENT, as always (please use THIS whenever possible):

« Respuesta #1 en: 21 de Diciembre de 2019, 12:44:04 pm »
Ladies and Gentlemen,

on behalf of the entire BMS development team, I am happy to announce that the latest iteration of the Billion Soft Falcon 4.0 total conversion modification - Benchmark Sims 4.34 U1 - is available for you to enjoy as of RIGHT NOW!

BMS 4.34 U1 requires a legit installation of a Falcon 4.0 (all older and newer versions are accepted alike, i.e. Microprose, Hasbro, GOG, Steam, Retroism). The check is performed both at setup time and every time you start BMS. If no valid installation is found, BMS will exit with a corresponding error message.

U1 is an incremental update on top of 4.34 base, so you need to have the BMS 4.34 Full Installer package available on your PC. You can both update your existing 4.34 base installation as well as perform a fresh 4.34 base + U1 installation from scratch, as you like. See the installation instructions below for details.


For those of you who are still in need of a legit Falcon 4.0 version, note that Retroism currently has a holiday sale (lasting until Jan 3rd 2020), you can grab the whole Falcon Collection there with a hefty 60% discount:
https://retroism.com/falcon-collection/


This mod may not be used for any commercial purposes. Any such use may constitute a violation of the intellectual property of Billion Soft (Hong Kong) Limited and the non-commercial Terms and Conditions under which Benchmark Sims make this mod available to you.


Installation instructions (they will be shown as well once you run the U1 installer):

DESTINATION FOLDER: Update 1 must be targeted at the original Falcon BMS 4.34 Setup folder, NOT at your Falcon BMS installation location! After the update installer has been finished, it will run the Falcon BMS Setup program to either apply the update to an existing BMS 4.34 base installation (choose 'Manage product updates'), or perform a fresh 4.34 base + U1 installation from scratch.

CONFIG FILE: U1 *does* replace your existing config file. Do *not* make a backup! Instead, re-configure from scratch based on the new file, otherwise you'll miss new config options.

Step-by-step details:

(1) The pre-requirement for installing the update is to have the original BMS 4.34 Setup folder available. That is the one with the blue colored Setup.exe. Take a note on the folder name where this exe is. This folder is NOT your actual game folder that you use to start BMS itself. It's the folder wherever you downloaded and extracted the original BMS 4.34 base installer.

(2) Note: You need the original BMS 4.34 Setup folder, as U1 is incremental only (like all BMS updates).

(3) Next, RUN (do not unzip) the U1 installer. It will ask you where the BMS setup folder is. Select the folder that you have identified in the 1st step.

(4) Note: Running the U1 installer will NOT actually install U1! Instead, it will update your original BMS 4.34 Setup folder to include the new U1 data.

(4) After the U1 installer has finished, it will run the blue colored Setup.exe that you have identified in the 1st step. Either perform a fresh new installation, or update your existing 4.34 base installation by choosing 'Manage product updates'. U1 will now be shown in addition to the 4.34 base installation.

(5) After the update, when starting BMS, the version string in the BMS UI will now read:
Falcon BMS 4.34.1 (x64) Build 20741

Flacon BMS 4.34 Update2
« Respuesta #2 en: 13 de Enero de 2020, 16:09:43 pm »
Ladies and Gentlemen,

on behalf of the entire BMS development team, I am happy to announce that the latest iteration of the Billion Soft Falcon 4.0 total conversion modification - Benchmark Sims 4.34 U2 - is available for you to enjoy as of RIGHT NOW!

BMS 4.34 U2 requires a legit installation of a Falcon 4.0 (all older and newer versions are accepted alike, i.e. Microprose, Hasbro, GOG, Steam, Retroism). The check is performed both at setup time and every time you start BMS. If no valid installation is found, BMS will exit with a corresponding error message.

U2 is an incremental update on top of 4.34 base + U1, so you need to have the BMS 4.34 Full Installer package and Update 1 available on your PC. You can both update your existing 4.34 base + U1 installation as well as perform a fresh 4.34 base + U1 + U2 installation from scratch, as you like. See the installation instructions below for details.


This mod may not be used for any commercial purposes. Any such use may constitute a violation of the intellectual property of Billion Soft (Hong Kong) Limited and the non-commercial Terms and Conditions under which Benchmark Sims make this mod available to you.


Installation instructions (they will be shown as well once you run the U2 installer):

DESTINATION FOLDER: Update 2 must be targeted at the original Falcon BMS 4.34 Setup folder, NOT at your Falcon BMS installation location! After the update installer has been finished, it will run the Falcon BMS Setup program to either apply the update to an existing BMS 4.34 base + U1 installation (choose 'Manage product updates'), or perform a fresh 4.34 base + U1 + U2 installation from scratch.

CONFIG FILE: U2 does not replace your existing config file.

Step-by-step details:

(1) The pre-requirement for installing the update is to have the original BMS 4.34 Setup folder available, with U1 already applied. That is the one with the blue colored Setup.exe. Take a note on the folder name where this exe is. This folder is NOT your actual game folder that you use to start BMS itself. It's the folder wherever you downloaded and extracted the original BMS 4.34 base installer.

(2) Note: You need the original BMS 4.34 Setup folder + U1, as U2 is incremental only (like all BMS updates).

(3) Next, RUN (do not unzip) the U2 installer. It will ask you where the BMS setup folder is. Select the folder that you have identified in the 1st step.

(4) Note: Running the U2 installer will NOT actually install U2! Instead, it will update your original BMS 4.34 Setup + U1 folder to include the new U2 data.

(4) After the U2 installer has finished, it will run the blue colored Setup.exe that you have identified in the 1st step. Either perform a fresh new installation, or update your existing 4.34 base + U1 installation by choosing 'Manage product updates'. U2 will now be shown in addition to the 4.34 base + U1 installation.

(5) After the update, when starting BMS, the version string in the BMS UI will now read:
Falcon BMS 4.34.2 (x64) Build 20805



Here's the 4.34 U1 -> 4.34 U2 changelog:
