Dawn Patrol Has Presently Gone IN-ACTIVE
If you would like to help out by restarting the mod, please contact me to the right.

"Dawn Patrol" brings "seat of your pants" dog fighting to BF2.

Aircraft
WW1 Bi-Planes - WW2 Classics - Futuristic Spaceships - Famous TV / Movie Planes

Weapons
Your plane is equipped with guns. No heat seeking missiles or other "smart" weapons

Competitions / Game Modes
Dog Fight Combat - Inter-Era Combat

Play test includes - Albatross Dva, Fokker Dr1, Fokker DVII, Neuport 11, Sopwith Camel, RAF Se5a.
Kubra Dam convertion by PACMAN with full Conquest, Coop and Single player. (3 versions)

Play Test Notes
1. Nose Cam and Cockpit Cam have been reversed so you go straight to nose came.
2. To repair your plane fly "through" the hangar. (Not over or near it)
3. There are no weapons. Its a flight mod after all.
4. WW1 = No chutes
5. Some planes have yet to have there new marking.

Additional Mod Notes
1. Poly Counts - Dawn Patrol uses lower than standard bf2 poly counts. There's a simple reason for this. Typically bf2 runs 2 to 4 planes. Dawn Patrol runs up to 32. This lower polycount doesn't take anyway any of the fun ingame, if you don't believe me try it, lol.
2. Prop Blur - We are aware of a problem with prop blur, if anyone tries mod and knows of a solution please let us know.
3. A few skins still need added (Spandaus etc) or updated.

Playtest 0.22 includes 5 BF2 Map convertions by Pacman with full bot support. 8 Classic WW1 planes. 2 Fantasy planes. Remember - This is a playtest and not a full blown public beta. Some items etc are not yet 100%. Our new map team are hard at work producing some custom maps which will be in the Full release, which we hope to have ready in time for xmas.


It has come to light that some of you may experience a CTD during the intro videos (If you have disabled the bf2 movies, you won't get problem). There are various ways to fix this. The easiest, is to run this tiny fix we've created. (Download the CTD Patch above)

Another way it to disable the bf2 movies by renaming the movies in mods/bf2/movies/ from .bik to .bak. Except for the menu.bik and menu_loggedin.bik. This will also stop all the movies from running when you launch bf2 or any other mod. It will not effect online play etc.

More Combat over Wake Combat over Kubra
Mothership Pesky Aliens....again

only one issue i forgot to mention

you need to make the bullets accurate to the crosshair

i was shooting like hell at a plane with the crosshair locked on to the planes body and still didnt get it.

the most accurate is the nose cam view

which has no crosshair
