First I have a period video that was done less than ten years after the battle.

Part One of a Naval Training film from 1950 based upon the 1948 document "NAVPERS 91067, The Battle of Midway Including the Aleutian Phase, June 3 to June 14, 1942: Strategical and Tactical Analysis by Richard W Bates" (later Rear Admiral Bates) at the Naval War college. I have never been able to find part two of this training film. Sad

Warning!!
Period prejudices towards the Japanese are still very much evident in this 1950 program.

At this time the Forum permissions only allow one video to be embedded per post so I made Montemayor's video's into links to conform to those rules.
Hope you enjoy the videos, I do think they are really well done.

Now a more recent retelling of the story by Montemayor. I am not exaggerating when I say that in my opinion his videos rival several commercial documentaries that have been professionally done. After an almost 15 month delay Part Two, which is now Parts Two and Three, of the Midway Battle are out.

Ich habe im Auftrag von John das Forum auf eine neue Software und einen neuen, schnelleren Server umgezogen.
Dabei kann es natürlich vorkommen, dass mir Daten verloren gegangen sind oder beim Datenimport von dem alten Forum
in das neue Daten nicht übernommen werden konnten.

Ich möchte euch bitten, wenn ihr Fehler findet, diese hier zu posten...

  • Dinge wie Avatare, bitte ich euch selbst wieder hochzuladen, leider sind einige verloren gegangen.
  • Links in den Forenbeiträgen werde ich nach und nach ersetzen, da ich diese von Hand ersetzen muss. Beitragsersteller, können mir sehr gerne helfen, indem sie ihre Links in den Beiträgen überprüfen und ggf. wenn nötig, ersetzen.
  • Einige User haben keine Moderatorenrechte mehr, dann bitte hier melden und nach Freigabe von John ordne ich euch dann der richtigen Gruppe zu.
  • Solltet ihr nicht mehr registriert sein, registriert euch bitte erneut. (Eure Beiträge sind aber noch vorhanden Wink)

Um das mal festzuhalten; Es waren über 58 000 Mitglieder (Jede Menge Bots und Karteileichen) und Unmengen an Beiträgen und Foren.... Diese sind schon zum Teil bereinigt worden, aber bei einem aktiven Forum wird man nie fertig Tongue

Was auch bedeutet, dass ich das Forum in Zukunft immer wieder aufräumen werde, damit es übersichtlich bleibt.

Es wäre furchtbar nett, wenn jemand das von mir Geschriebene in Englisch übersetzen würde, dafür ist mein Englishc zu schlecht und Google Translate möchte ich euch nicht zumuten Smile edit: Durch den neuen Import ist das verloren gegangen, ich habe es mit translate übersetzen lassen und hoffe, es ist verständlich, wenn nicht, wäre es lieb, wenn es jemand korrigiert. danke <3

Bitte habt etwas Nachsicht, wenn noch nicht alles sofort fehlerfrei funktioniert im Forum.

Hello all,
Within some few weeks this website will be going down and a new one will replace it still under AAS and same web-address.
We will try to keep as much of the site as we can but some things will be gone.
So get what you would like from the IL2 stuff before it is not here anymore.

I haven't logged in for a while even though I check the sight often. I used to visit/log in to AAA before it morphed into AAS when I first started modding.

I haven't seen much posted in the way of HSFX for a long long time. Besides HSFX I have 4.13.4m installed.with FreeIL2Modding Mod activator with several mods installed. I recently installed vp_modpack because there is a group on Hyperlobby that flies this mod.

I have a common problem in all three versions. I have the Carrier Crew v5 mod installed. All of the carriers are populated, but there is one problem in all versions. There is a graphics anomaly with the USN CVL's and only the CVL's. The CV's and CVE's and other carriers are fine. At SAS PA_Jeronimo posted he had fixed the issue, but never showed what he did to fix the anomaly. I believe here at AAS he goes by Jeronimo and if so I hope he may check the site and see this and can provide an answer. If anyone else reading this post has the answer/fix it would be appreciated if they could post it.

Thank you.

I have received a lot of help here over the years and found a lot of useful information. If this site goes away it will be a very sad day indeed. Sad

Well well… look who climbed out of the slime-pit/garbage-pile and posted on [u]my[/u] personal chat box here:

[img]https://i.postimg.cc/BZxcRzwn/iceeagle-attack.png[/img]

:D :D :D

[b]What a shock/surprise from a know-it-all braggart! [/b]

I'm underwhelmed that this thoughtless gump would come here and attack me like that... g'ah! ??? ::)

I'm assuming Barney, Tyger, Slipper and their cronies like Gump (and let's not forget Ice here) and a few others will be along shortly to launch yet [u]ANOTHER[/u] follow-up attack against me. [b]After all, once you've stabbed someone in the back once...it's easy as all hell to do it again and again, eh Barney, Tiger?[/b]

;D ;D ;D

Keep it coming, guys... I love it! You've needlessly, selfishly, cruelly done so much hurt/harm/insult to me, I'm never going to be more than an [u]inch[/u] away from your shoulders. Every project you work on with stolen goods, every post you make anywhere on the net, any game you play... whatever, I'll be there. You [u]deserve[/u] for me to be there and you know it. You can't wrong a good man and get by, you can't keep a good man down... Hell, I've got an evil eyeball on you right now! :wink:

Okay guys... this is Beo… you know me. You know I started Free Modding for FREE MODDERS to come and learn to mod outside the restrictive elements of 'others' who tried to keep modding secrets hidden from the general public and retain such knowledge strictly for their own purposes.

Free Modding 'was' a success. We taught hundreds if not THOUSANDS of people to mod there and from all over the world.

However, it has, since my lengthy absence/illness... become 'something' else entirely.

Following a bout with cancer and multiple heart attacks (and the unfortunate lightning strike which blew my computer and backup drives clear across the room) I discover that I am not only NO LONGER wanted on my own site...but, that MY site that I started from ZERO, and that I sank [b]THOUSANDS[/b] of hours designing, building, posting on, writing mod tutorials for and so on... doesn't [b]INTEND[/b] for me to be there either. Rather they've become a SHOW place, where they spend silly, endless hours making shiny new ka-zillion-poly addons, many of them from other 3D folks at other 3D sites, and posting them up for mostly approving/adoring MOD COLLECTORS... no not modders, mind you, not even players...but rather people that only [u]COLLECT[/u] them to have them show-off in screenshots or to brag about having them in their game.

No, of course not 'all' of the folk there are collectors... many are real players, fine friends and true gentlemen, but yes, ---sadly many of them are. And those don't care WHAT becomes of the site as long as they get their weekly and or monthly 'fix' of collectible shiny new mods. :roll:

They've let most of the 'old' mod links go bad... what a waste of effort, of talent and of skill. Old modders just don't mean anything to them anymore...nor do their 'old' mods, evidently. :cry:

They even picked a public fight with me (to have an excuse to cause trouble) over me enjoying playing 4.09m/UP2.01 (an older install) and went so far as to openly attack me IN THE CLEAR forum over it. Crazy...since the original premise of the site was to DO YOUR OWN THING ANYWAY YOU WANTED TO and we 'never' ran anybody down over the version they played...nor did we let idiots openly attack other moderators or admins...let alone actually JUMP in there and attack WITH them. Dear Lord! What has my wonderful, free, helpful and gracious site sank down into? :x

I was told in no uncertain terms... that I wasn't wanted, I wasn't needed, and that my sorry, old ass needed to get lost. I was told that THEY (the new admins there) built the site up to what it is today....that I had NO hand in it. That if it wasn't for THEM, there's be no freemodding site whatsoever. (Where were [b]THEY [/b]at during the [u]HUNDREDS OF BATTLES[/u] that Ton and I stood against an entire 'other' site and battled toe to toe to keep our site alive against? Where were [b]THEY[/b] when there WAS no site and 'I' and 'I' alone had to CREATE it from nothing? Where were [b]THEY[/b] when they had to guard and protect my own computer/personal/private life against rabid attacks from 'others' out to not only take down the new (at that time) FM site but to take ME down as well? Where were [b]THEY[/b] when I spent MONTHS of 24 hour, seven day a week time spans creating and writing the hundreds of modding models/tutorials that actually made the site a household name all over the world? Where were [b]THEY[/b] when I personally posted over one thousand mods up for [u]FREE[/u] community downloads? Where were [b]THEY[/b] when the site had ONE member...[b]ME[/b]. And where were [b]THEY[/b] when all of a sudden thanks to [b]my[/b] modding tutorage it had over a [u]thousand[/u] members? And where were [b]THEY[/b] when they came over there crying with no safe haven and I personally offered them a SAFE, FREE, CALM place to hang their hats and call home? And [b]WHO[/b] defended [b]them[/b] when the 'other' guys came calling and tried their best to attack and defame [b]them[/b] there? (Yeah, who was that fool?) ---oh yeah, [b]it was ME[/b]. :-?

But now it's ALL about THEM? And how much THEY did? D'oh! ---And they can talk to me like I'm useless trash and think it's okay to do so?

LOL! :shock: [i]Have you ever heard such drivel in your life?[/i]

Probably not. I know I haven't.

Anyway... people that I thought were my loyal, loving friends actually sneaked around behind my back, unchecked my FOUNDER box in my admin control room...and [b]BANNED me from my own site[/b].

That's right... and that's the truth, no matter WHAT they might say otherwise. That's how it happened. And let me tell you, that is not something you can get over easily...especially from people you 'thought' were friends.

When I discovered this... I found out that they won't even reply to my emails (and I can see why the gutless wonders would do that since they pulled such a crappy deal on me in the first place. Surely the guilt must slap them right between the eyes every time they look in a mirror these days.) Heck, one of them, even after personally inviting me to his website to join his squadron and play with them...which I had went and joined but had yet to make a post there...INSTANTLY banned me the next day after all of this came about. It was obvious a guilt banning there...since I had NEVER done anything to him or to his squad or to his site (like I said, I'd just joined and never even made a post there yet!) D'oh!

Well, so be it. Let them twist in the breeze. [b]They'll get theirs.[/b]

In the mean time I'm moving forward... the OLD Free Modding attitude and passion isn't dead. We don't have to have new shiny toys every day to keep a dream of freedom and fair play alive. I'll rebuild from one of my site 'backup' DVDs... make a new, better, FREE Modding. Same idea on the same path as the original one... and not ran by tyrants, bullies, or outright backstabbing thieves.

I'll keep you posted on this. In the mean time all links to the old site have been removed as they were no longer valid anyway...

Keep safe. Keep 'em flying!

Your friend, Always!

S! :mrgreen:
