Do you just not know how to change your monitor's resolution?  I'm pretty sure most any monitor can change their resolution.  You have driver software that controls that.

Bud, you can change The resolution if you go to screen settings.

Also Yellow.. I don't mind if this gets just for fun, I'd like to get this thing started

Yeah, well, I just played the Infinity Campaign for the first time and I'm doubtful about including it in the Battle Arena.

The debrief screen does not specify the mission number, AFAIK, so I'm thinking that the only way to do this would be to stipulate that you have to wait till the debrief is totally finished, then take your screenshot, so that the message at the bottom can be used to tell what mission it is. Any screenshot submitted that did not have a known 'last message' would be invalidated.

How do you guys feel about that? I'll have to run Campaign again to get those messages for my use as I tried to take pics freehand and even with a new camera, my shots aren't often usable because of blurring. Using my tripod should fix that.

I agree on this ^^

 

 

The debriefing texts can be found on Acepedia btw

Maybe so, but I'll get them anyway. That way I know they're correct.   ;)


OK, here they are. If you play an Infinity Campaign Mission in the Arena, your screenshot needs to show, clear enough to read, the following final debrief message texts;

Mission 1 - Lost Butterfly (Operation Gambit) - "Now, though, I guess they don't have much choice."

Mission 2 - Great Migration (Operation Bird Hunt) - "So, we'll be heading for Russia."

Mission 3 - Rescue (Operation Fogbound) - "That presents the possibility that Wernher's satellites have been seized by terrorists."

Mission 4 - Stonehenge (Operation Crusher) - "They took control in the blink of an eye."

Mission 5 - Far Eastern Front (Operation Override) - "Again, good job."

Also, there will be no time-based tiebreakers, since they do not give the time on the debrief screen, as shown below.

You see the text line, "Again, good job.", so you know it's a shot from Mission 5.
 
Of course, I thought of all this before I realized that editions of Infinity in other countries might not have English text on the debrief screen.   We may not be able to include Infinity after all....

Chopper!  Did you read the post just before yours?   You did?   Good!   Can you tell me if your version of Infinity has those same phrases?

I think we should all report our Version of Infinity when joining and asked them to get the last phrases. Just saying

If I have a list of all possible phrases, that wouldn't even be necessary.   If anyone has non-English phrasing, please copy it down here.

If we do this for Fun, I'd be down for it. I don't have a lot of time to play, but I'd be good for AC5/Z/AHL/6

I don't have Ace mode on 4, X, or JA and I find AH just a pain to control

Did you read the OP?   With the rules?  Non-Ace level is no longer a dealbreaker, just not recommended.   You can fly at any level you want, but the people who fly at Ace level are going to score more from the same mission.

 

Also, Battle Arena does NOT support AH.

Ah...well i mean it's not an official deal breaker but there's no chance without it, so I'm going to refrain from the ones I don't have it unlocked. I'll just stick with AC5, ACZ, AHL and 6.

 

I gotta wonder why AHL is considered legacy but AH isn't...or is that something I just should leave alone?

I think AH doesn't have proper debriefing screens that can work for this.

Not at all.   You can always go back to the first thread, where I was working everything out, here;  http://acecombatskie...s-battle-arena/

 

 

Long story short, AH doesn't give you debrief screens, so there's nothing to take a photo of to compare.  (Ninja'd by P.C.  :P )

 

 

And right now, it's iffy if Infinity gets added, since their Campaign debrief screens omit not only the time, but the actual mission number.

I see, I see. Well thanks for the quick AH responses haha. I wasn't planning to play it anyway.

 

I think I'll stick with the ones i listed...  though any tips on getting Aces to not seem like I'm flying in a black hole?

Watch those arrows.  Arrange to position yourself directly in front of, or better yet, behind, your selected targets.  Pop two regular missiles per enemy (not getting into SPWs), rinse and repeat.

 

Happy Happy Joy Joy!

No, I have beaten the game numerous times on a PS2. It's on my PS3 however the missions seems impossibly dark. Anyone else have that issue or should I just mess with my settings since every other level seems fine

I did, I just asked if this died again 'cuz no one were putting the images of the possible debrief screen on Infinity.

 

Also I would like to help, but I don't have PS3 yet neither the youtube videos last that long... sorry  :wacko:
