|TP-Link makes excellent products at reasonable prices. Most routers I have had over the years seem to burn out after one to two years. Stop working this baby with the stock firm ware. Nothing will get connect nor it will give me anything out.|

About Photosensitive Seizures
A very small percentage of people may experience a seizure when exposed to certain visual images, including flashing lights or patterns that may appear in video games. Even people who have no history of seizures or epilepsy may have an undiagnosed condition that can cause these photosensitive epileptic seizures while watching video games. These seizures may have a variety of symptoms, including lightheadedness, altered vision, eye or face twitching, jerking or shaking of arms or legs, disorientation, confusion, or momentary loss of awareness. Seizures may also cause loss of consciousness or convulsions that can lead to injury from falling down or striking nearby objects. Immediately stop playing and consult a doctor if you experience any of these symptoms. Parents should watch for or ask their children about the above symptomschildren and teenagers are more likely than adults to experience these seizures. The risk of photosensitive epileptic seizures may be reduced by taking the following precautions: - Play in a well-lit room. - Do not play when you are drowsy or fatigued. If you or any of your relatives have a history of seizures or epilepsy, consult a doctor before playing.

The Tactical Air War
So you thought you were going to be a knight of the air, jousting high in the clean blue sky, far above the mud and squalor of the war on the ground. Instead you find yourself in a fighter-bomber, scraping over hostile territory at 200 feet with the terrain rising to meet you. Youre flying down the muzzles of antiaircraft guns to attack the enemy. If cannon fire doesnt get you, the blast and debris from your own low-level bombing and strafing can bring you down. In this kind of war, theres more danger and less glory.
WELCOME TO THE TACTICAL AIR WAR, PAL!
Youre going to use planes like the P-47 Thunderbolt, the Fw 190, and the Hawker Tempest V to stop the enemys advance by destroying his entire arsenal. If you destroy enough targets, you can change the shape of the front line and even find yourself in the cockpit of a super-secret plane that has not yet entered service. The enemy means to dominate the European Theater of Operations (ETO), and we cant let that happen. Theres a lot to do in this war-lets get to it!
LETS GET TO IT!

THE MISSION OF THE TACTICAL AIR FORCE
THREE CRITICAL FACTORS FOR FIGHTER-BOMBER PILOTS
.strafing passes. bring out three critical factors in a fighter-bomber pilots war. One, any misjudgment, target fixation, or too-late attempts at aiming corrections will send the airplane into the target, ground, or nearby trees or other obstructions. Two, if the target is a load of ammunition or other explosives, it can--and very likely will--explode right in the pilots face, sending up a fireball, truck parts, slabs of highway, still-to-explode ammo, and other debris right into the path of the airplane. Three, if a pilot is seriously hit by flak in [a] low-altitude attack, his chances of ever reaching enough altitude to allow a bailout are slim indeed. -From Bill Colgan, World War II Fighter-Bomber Pilot
MISSIONS.. THE MISSION OF THE TACTICAL AIR FORCE CONSISTS OF THREE PHASES OF OPERATIONS IN THE FOLLOWING ORDER OF PRIORITY: FIRST PRIORITY.TO GAIN THE NECESSARY DEGREE OF AIR SUPERIORITY. THIS WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED BY ATTACKS AGAINST AIRCRAFT IN THE AIR AND ON THE GROUND, AND AGAINST THOSE ENEMY INSTALLATIONS THAT HE REQUIRES FOR THE APPLICATION OF AIR POWER. SECOND PRIORITY. TO PREVENT THE MOVEMENT OF HOSTILE TROOPS AND SUPPLIES INTO THE THEATER OF OPERATIONS OR WITHIN THE THEATER. THIRD PRIORITY.TO PARTICIPATE IN THE COMBINED EFFORT OF THE AIR AND GROUND FORCES, IN THE BATTLE AREA, TO GAIN OBJECTIVES ON THE IMMEDIATE FRONT OF THE GROUND FORCES. * * * -from War Department Field Manual FM 100-20: Command and Employment of Air Power (21 July 1943)

Whats New to This Theater?
Previous versions of Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator focused mainly on the deadly aerial ballet of dogfighting. This time around, its you versus the entire ground army: their guns, hardware, and planes. The tactical air war is messy, personal, and very dangerous. To fight this war, you can choose from 18 aircraft (with variants, you get a total of 34 planes). The Aircraft section on page 19 of this manual has more information about planes, as does the Machines of War handbook included on the compact disc. To view this handbook, click the Options tab, click Handbooks, and then click Machines of War. Whether youre a rookie or a veteran, youll find an appropriate plane for any mission you undertake. You also get to take on new roles, like gunner and bombardier. Some of the bigger ships, like medium bombers, have gun positions and people need to man those guns--people like you. Use the F8 key to hop to the different gunner positions on a plane. Or, use the F7 key to jump into the bombardiers seat. Whatever you do, dont drop bombs on your own troops! Ready? Good! Lets get you in the air!

STARTING COMBAT FLIGHT SIMULATOR 3
The war is on, flyboy! Its time to get your butt into a cockpit and start pushing the front line toward the enemy. Double-click the Combat Flight Simulator 3 icon on the desktop and youre good to go. Or, click Start, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Games, point to Combat Flight Simulator 3, and then click Combat Flight Simulator 3. Once you start CFS3, use the Quick Combat, Missions, Campaign, and Multiplayer tabs on the lower left to get in the fight. Or, use the Options tab on the upper right to access the handbooks and online Help or to set various game and hardware settings.
CALIBRATING YOUR JOYSTICK
You can fly with either a joystick or your keyboard, and you can adjust their settings. If you try flying with a joystick that isnt calibrated, you may find yourself chewing grass at 200 m.p.h. instead of bearing down on a train like you wanted. To calibrate your joystick, click Control Options on the Options tab (on the upper-right corner of the Main screen), and then click Calibrate. After youve calibrated your joystick, jump into the cockpit and enjoy the most realistic and accurate combat flight experience available.

SETTING GAME OPTIONS
What good is a new plane if you cant see out of your goggles or fly straight-and-level? Theres a lot to sort out to make sure you can fight this war effectively. Before you get your wheels rolling, adjust the display, sound, and realism options. Adjust your Display Options and Sound Options from the Options tab (on the upper-right corner of the Main screen) to best match the hardware in your computer. You can also adjust how true-to-life your Combat Flight Simulator experience is with Realism Options. By making your plane easy to fly and selecting unlimited ammunition, you can give yourself an edge if youre a novice pilot. Or, you can adjust these settings for a more realistic taste of the tactical air war. The game displays a percentage score showing you how real the experience is. The higher the percentage, the more difficult, but realistic, the flight will be when you go on a mission. From the Options tab, you can also adjust Multiplayer settings or use the Flight Recorder. For more information about all of these settings, consult online Help.
LEARNING TO FLY AND FIGHT
Sure, you can just jump into a plane and take off after the enemy--but youre probably not going to return home. Before you set out, read the handbook, watch the movies, and fly the training missions. Follow this program and you might make it back alive. The Flight School handbook has a great deal of information about how to fly and how to perform air combat maneuvers safely. Read that handbook: click the Options tab, click Handbooks, and then click Flight School. The training movies show examples of some air combat maneuvers, such as the Split-S and other lifesaving maneuvers you need as a tactical air combat pilot. To watch the movies, see Training Materials in online Help. The training missions allow you to practice the flying and combat skills that you read about in the handbook and watched in the training movies. They provide a safer arena for you to practice before you commit to a campaign. For more information about these missions, consult online Help.

The Main Screen: Four Game Modes
Now that youve learned how to fly and fight, its time to experience the war through four different game modes: Quick Combat, Missions, Campaign, and Multiplayer.
Cant wait to obliterate the enemy? The Quick Combat game mode puts you right where you want to be immediately, whether its intercepting a bomber or strafing ground targets. Before you start flying, use the Flight Type, Aircraft, Location, Pilot, Skill, and Objective options on the Quick Combat tab to select the specifics of your next fight. Also, be sure to specify your pilot name and attributes.
Flight types are short combat situations you can put yourself in before undertaking a mission or a campaign. These include Free flight, Dogfight, Intercept, Escort, and Ground Attack. Free Flight lets you roam the skies without enemies or specific targets. Use this opportunity to become familiar with flying the different aircraft or strafing targets. Dogfight puts you close to an enemy thats trying to kill you. Shoot him down before he shoots you down. Sounds simple enough, doesnt it? This flight type is great for learning how the enemy flies and practicing aerial combat maneuvers.
BACK EM UP
- 16 -
- 17 -
Intercept has you destroy the enemys medium bombers before they drop their bombs. You must also stop fighter-bombers before they menace your troops. Escort teams you with bombers on their way to a target so you can protect them from enemy fighters and flak by any means you know. Ground Attack is where your attention is going to be most of the time. You must be able to destroy tanks, trucks, guns, ships, and anything else before theyre brought to bear on your troops. When it comes to bombing, you have to use your own reckoning--experience is the best teacher. What you learn here will be especially useful when you fly missions in the Campaign mode.
Before you fly a quick combat or mission, choose the right aircraft for the job, because if you dont, youre not making it back home. If youre going after a bridge, you might want the P-47. Flying a long way to bomb a few buildings? Maybe the Maurauder is right. If youre not sure what mission is coming next, try the all-purpose Fw 190. You have 18 aircraft (with variants, 34 total planes) to choose from. Your choices even include planes that havent seen service, like the Go 229, the German jet-powered flying wing, and the American Shooting Star jet fighter. How do you decide which plane to fly? Consult the Machines of War handbook (click the Options tab, click Handbooks, and then click Machines of War) for descriptions of each of the planes--including their strengths and weaknesses and how much ordnance they carry.
To choose a flight type
1. On the Quick Combat tab, click Flight Type. 2. On the Flight Type tab, click the flight type you want to use. 3. Click the Fly button to start your Quick Combat session.
To select an aircraft
1. On the Quick Combat tab, click Aircraft. 2. On the Aircraft tab, click the flag of the country you want to pick a plane from, and then click the name of the plane you want to fly. After you choose an aircraft, you control its fuel and ammo load, loadout (the configuration of bombs, fuel tanks, and rockets), and number of wingmen. To change your fuel or ammunition load, click the corresponding red bar and slide it left for less load, right for more. To select the loadout and number of wingmen, use the drop-down menus. Note that Clean means no bombs or extra fuel tanks.
- 18 -
- 19 -
You can choose where the battle takes place. Change the location based on where you would prefer to fight and practice.
Assigning pilot attributes
In CFS3, you can adjust your vision, g-tolerance, and health. Vision influences how far away you can spot enemies. If you cant see the bad guys, youre going to lose the advantage right from the start when they line up their attack on you. With better vision, you can see more information displayed about foes at a greater range. G-tolerance dictates how extreme you can fly without blacking out. You remember those books from flight school with fancy arrows showing you which way to jerk your aircraft when you get into trouble? If you cant take the Gs, you might as well stay on the ground reading about it. Health controls how much damage you can withstand while inside the cockpit. Lets face it: Youre going to be flying low enough for a one-eyed cook with a carbine to put a slug into your knee--and then you have to make it back to the base without bleeding out. Not to make you nervous, but you could die painfully on one of these missions. Health is the only thing you have to keep that from happening. If you have skill points available, you can increase one or more attribute values without taking a hit on the others; if not, you can still adjust the attribute values. If youre serious about doing the job and making it back alive, decide for yourself which attributes youll need most.
As a pilot in CFS3, youre more than some name sewn onto a fancy flight jacket. You have attributes associated with human qualities, such as vision and how many Gs you can pull. Adjust these qualities to be the type of pilot you prefer, be it an eagle-eyed flyer, a toughas-nails gunner, or someone who can pull out of any kind of dive. You can also choose your nationality and see how the other side is fighting the war.
- 20 -
- 21 -
To flesh out your pilot attributes, go to the Quick Combat, Missions, or Campaign tab, and then click Pilot. On the Pilot tab, click the name of the pilot you want to fly as. To adjust an attribute, slide its red bar to the left or right to decrease or increase it.
Not everyone flies the same and thats true of the enemy. You can choose your enemys skill level and their position relative to you by clicking Skill on the Quick Combat tab. Your enemies can be rookies, veterans, or aces. Rookies perform, well, like you. Veterans shoot straight and can make more extreme maneuvers with their planes. Aces are expert veteran pilots and present the most serious threat. For dogfights, fighter position determines the enemys position relative to your own. You have three options: disadvantaged, equal, and advantaged. Select disadvantaged to start behind the enemy, select equal to go head-tohead, or select advantaged to start with a bogey on your tail and firing at you. Good thing you have high health and g-tolerance, right?
Viewing your dossier
The government loves paperwork and tracks how many medals youve won, your ratio of kills to the number of times youve died, the number of enemies youve killed, and so on. To see this information, click your name on the Pilot tab, and then click the Stats tab. The bombing, gunnery, and rocketry ratings reflect how accurate you are with your countrys ordnance. The sole reason youre in Europe is to deliver this firepower onto the enemy, got it? If you cant shoot straight, theres really no point in getting in the cockpit in the first place.
Fighter and Bomber
When you choose a new mission or quick combat, you can select your objective, such as bombing a bridge or strafing a train. On the Quick Combat tab, make this choice under Ground; on the Missions tab, make it after clicking Mission. See online Help for more information about ground targets in Quick Combat.
- 22 -
- 23 -
The Missions game mode, selected from the Missions tab on the Main screen, lets you choose from Historical, What If, and Training missions. Historical missions are scenarios that occurred in history and are based on accounts of actual pilots and official records. What If missions are missions that might have been if events had played out differently in the war. For example, what if the Germans had been able to deploy more of their jet planes sooner? Training missions are designed to help you become familiar with the tasks you will have to perform during your military-sponsored stay in scenic Europe. To go on a mission, select the mission title, and then click Go To Briefing. The briefing describes what your targets are and where theyre located. Consult online Help for more information about items in the briefing. The Missions tab also has Aircraft, Pilot, and Skill tabs, which are described in this manual on pages 19, 20, and 23, respectively.
The Campaign game mode, selected from the Campaign tab on the Main screen, allows you to fly consecutive missions and earn medals and promotions if you perform well. The options associated with flying a campaign are documented in online Help.
Changing the front line
Campaigns are all about pushing the front line right back to the enemys capital. Your actions on the field of battle directly affect the position of the front line. The better you perform, the more ground the enemy loses and the more we gain--its ultimately that simple. Campaigns begin with a look at the map of the European Theater of Operations (ETO). This map shows your air bases, enemy air bases (and other targets), and locations of interest. The map also includes the front line, which shows the progress of your fellow troops in the ETO. The front line is influenced by your performance: if you win a battle, the front line moves to reflect your victory, and likewise, if the enemy wins, it reflects his gain.

Earning medals and promotions
Push the enemy back far enough and you might earn a medal. Heres the lowdown on the awards and how you can earn them from the three air powers--U.S. Army Air Force (USAFF), British Air Force (RAF), and German Air Force (GAF): Award 1--First air kill or fourth ground kill. USAAF: Distinguished Flying Cross RAF: Air Force Medal GAF: Iron Cross Award 2--Three air kills or twelve ground kills in a single mission. USAAF: Legion of Merit RAF: Distinguished Flying Cross (officers), Distinguished Flying Medal (enlisted) GAF: German Cross Award 3--Ten air kills or forty ground kills. USAAF: Silver Star RAF: Distinguished Service Order GAF: Knights Cross Award 4--Fifteen air kills or sixty ground kills. USAAF: Distinguished Service Cross RAF: Victoria Cross GAF: Knights Cross with Oak Leaves Ace Award--Five air kills or twenty ground kills. USAAF, GAF: Letter of Commendation RAF: Mention in Dispatches Wounded Award--Pilot wounded. USAAF: Purple Heart GAF: Gold Wound Badge (severe injuries), Silver (serious), Black (minor injuries)
You and your buddies can fight the war over the Internet or a local area network (LAN). Consult online Help for more information about how to set up a multiplayer game.

On the Fly
When youre flying, you must use your planes instruments and watch for enemy aircraft. Instruments are vital to completing any mission. Your onboard instruments display crucial information like altitude and air speed. As you become more experienced with dropping bombs and strafing, youll learn which altitudes and speeds are best for each type of attack. For information about an instrument, move your mouse cursor over the instrument to view rollover Help. The Virtual Cockpit (turned on and off with the F3 key) allows you to look around your aircraft freely using the hat switch on your joystick. Your instrument panel works in this view. Press the NUM LOCK key to toggle between panning and snap-to views with the hat switch. When youre flying a fighter-bomber, you can shoot and drop bombs from the cockpit, but when youre in other planes, you must jump to the bombardier seat (press F7) or gunner position (press F8) to perform these tasks. To jump back to the pilot seat, press F6. In the bombardier position, you can use a bombsight for more accurate bombing, and you can make minor flight path corrections, but nothing extreme. In the gunner position, however, you cant make any flight corrections, so unless you want to watch your plane crash, get it flying straight-and-level before you leave the cockpit.

TIPS AND TRICKS
Your missions are dangerous and the only way to get through them all is to fly, shoot, and bomb well. Here are some tips you can use when you climb into the cockpit. Read. Watch. Do. You can learn how to fight effectively in this theater through three resources: handbooks, training movies, and training missions. The handbooks provide you with all of the information you need to know. The training movies show you a few key maneuvers you need to learn. The training missions let you practice these skills. Access the handbooks through the Options tab, the movies through online Help, and the training missions through the Missions tab. Know your aircraft. Understand the strengths and weaknesses of the planes you fly and those of the enemy as well. Some aircraft are particularly good or bad for any particular mission. The Machines of War handbook on the compact disc is an excellent resource for this information. Recognize their aircraft. Dont shoot your buddy! Planes can look alike, especially from a great distance. Use the Machines of War handbook to learn how to distinguish an Fw 190 from a Thunderbolt, a Mustang from an Me 109, and a Ju 88 from a Mosquito. Dont get shot. If your plane is taking hits from another plane, youre doing something wrong. Nothing is worse than getting shot so youre free to try anything to shake the enemy loose, no matter how risky. If you practice, practice. If you plan on flying with the flight model set to Hard, then do not practice on a setting lower than
Medium. Practicing on a lower setting teaches you bad habits that can get you killed when combat starts. Dont be a cowboy. Tactical combat is a tough job and not every mission is going to be winnable the first time you fly it. Its better to live to fight another day, so instead of fighting to the death, bug out of a deteriorating combat situation that could cost the lives of too many of your fellow pilots. Get some distance if you can, regroup, and aim to win the campaign, not the battle of the moment. Keep an eye out. When focusing on a bomb run or making sure you can find your target, its easy to forget that there are enemy planes in the sky whose only purpose is to shoot you down. Watch whats behind you as well as whats in front. Avoid fixation. Its easier than you think to forget about the ground and then fly right into it. Dont focus on a target so closely that you neglect to leave yourself enough altitude to pull out of a dive. Set trim. Set your engine power to 70% (press the 7 key), and then let go of your joystick to see if your plane climbs or dives on its own. If it does, the trim may not be set properly, which can be a problem when youre flying ten feet off the ground. Use the 1 and 7 keys on the numerical keypad to set the trim so your plane flies level on its own. Know your computer. Theres a lot to tweak on your computer to make the game run smoothly. Experiment with the settings in CFS3 to see which options create the most satisfying game experience for you.
