I just got the update earlier.. it's HORRIBLE! (4.4.52 for Windows 8.1 computers)

While flying in dogfight missions earlier I was easily killed.. even by all level 8 players.

My new top tier Red Baron turns and flies like the OLD RED BRICK! WITH a Bomb! But the same goes for the SE5a.. tried both of 'em in successive dogfight missions.

When I asked Cricket (who I enjoy battling in dogfight missions along with McTwist & a few others) if it seemed as though I was flying & turning slow he said yes. (he easily dropped me everytime we met up.. like 5 times in a row.. regardless if I was in the Red Baron or SE5a) Usually we split about 50/50 unless one of us is having a really good flight.

Usually we enjoy a good battle against each other.. but these times (2 dogfight missions) he dropped me each time as though I was a level 8 player in a freebie plane. (same way as the level 8 players were dropping me lol!)

I regret getting the update.. if you have Windows 8.1 and haven't gotten it yet? DON'T!!!

I just noticed the same thing with u Zebra when I updated my game. Seems like the German planes are not representing the same way shown in their stats. Rather, they're showing the same performance from the previous update. I hope the next update should fix it since lower ranked players have the upper hand when they buy the Albatross and Pfaltz.

So should I hold off on my planned upgrade of the Albatross DV? I have speed and I am 10k off manouverability.

Edited to add: I already have the 8.1 upgrade. It just arrived!

Just delete the app & then get it again from the Windows app store and then it should work.

The Windows update is out: apps.microsoft.com/windows/app/dogfight/...a4-885a-d5ae4d00e1e5
you should know whether you have it because the Fokker Dr.1 is not red.

Let me know whether this fixes the issue with speed and windows 8.1 game blue screens.

Yes hold off. Update took away my newly bought and upgraded ev and replaced with red baron. Reply sucked. I got it again and sure hope they don't steal it again and give me something I had with a so called improvement. Support made it sound like I shouldn't complain Cu's "we gave u a reach around" that's all fine and dandy but didn't decent want the screwing in first place lol

You just arrived and all you did was post complaining and talking to people like you know them. I suggest you read a bit in the forum because some of us have been here for years. It was well explained the reason for the change and why nothing was "taken away". Calm down and read the forum instead of posting and adding everywhere you see a bit of a complain.

Yes something was taken and replaced I acknowledged that. I did read the forum. It was still lame don't know why you cant see the other side as well. The plane replaced was still on the game so if it was wanted had to be repurchased that was t right even tho we got slightly improved red baron. Don't really care if you been here for years or a week if you see something you want and buy it it should stay is all I was saying. So what your saying is tough I get that but still wrong. When u purchase something you expect what you bought. And as I did read forum j know I'm not the only one disappointed over it. So you don't like complaints if players don't like something? If I don't understand or like it I will do the support thing and info at echoboom. That's supposed to be what that is for right? Heard there is new update. Taking anything this time and replacing? Hope not. While you update try fixing pilot gun purchase that takes money but gives no gun. Oh but wait. You don't want to be bothered I should go to forum.. didn't see anything there so thought id mention it. Hope that's okay with you. And wasn't talking to folks like I knew them was "replying to and commenting on guess what other complaints. And if you don't talk to people how are you supposed to get to know them or find out anything. Its not all in the forum allthough I do find it to be informative for quite a few things.

Hola zuperman...

Got the update with the different skin on the Dr.1 but still no difference.. both my top tier planes fly slow..
Was in a dogfight mission with Whiplash who asked me if my plane was slow because him shooting me down was easier than he thought it should be.
My own squadron pilot Treybien was able to shoot me down quite easily in a ctc mission..
My top tier planes still fly slooooooow...
I hope you fix it soon!

zebra can you take a screenshot of your hangar with the dr1? I'm curious to see how it looks because it should fly like the previous albatros d5 :?

Hola Zebra and Zuperman. I am a win 8.1 player and I am afraid Zebra is right, the German planes are flying different, they do seem slower and maneuver is also slower, in my case I am just trying to adapt. I do not have the top plane Red Baron so would not be able to comment on that one. I did have problems on the top American plane; when I did the past windows store DF upgrade. Problem I had was that when I spent money on upgrades for plane they did not show on the bars, but the money was used. With this new upgrade the bars now show the upgrade when I spend the money, but those 2 previous upgrades seems I did loss. Oh well will keep playing to make the money back, any way thank you for the game it truly is fun. P.S. thumbs up on some of the new paint jobs, but the red baron look better on its Snoopy colors and hope you can find a way to speed up those planes for Zebra an us Win 8.1 players.

It does not fly like my former Albatros D.V.a - but it isn't just this top tier plane either, my SE5a doesn't fly or turn anything even close to like it did before. I am quite easily shot down by pilots that I used to have wonderful air battles with in the past.

Okay, that's it.. I just watched an Airco out turn me multiple times & speed by me faster that my SE5a could go. Not to mention ever other plane in the dogfight mission was faster & turned quicker than my supposedly top tier plane.. even a Nieuport XI & a D.III

I guess I will check back in a week or 2 to see if it's the same...

Does anyone know a fix for the app not even loading? Mine does the blue screen thing, then goes right to an icon on the taskbar of my windows 8.1 laptop. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app numerous time with no joy and have been down for over 2 weeks now. Im getting lots of work done around the house but I'd much rather be flying.....

there is an option on settings/graphics to disable the chat, but that's about it.

Darkhorse you described exactly what mine is doing. This is a decent game, more than decent.. a whole lot of fun and it is very frustrating to suddenly not be able to play any more. If you figure it out let me know and I will do the same.

Microsoft had a problem with the update, what you need to do is remove the app and reinstall it. It fixes it.

I think my O/S is the problem because I have removed and reinstalled it several times with no joy. I appreciate your attention in this matter zup, and especially your patience with us schmucks who cannot seem to get the game to work. I looked in announcements but cant pinpoint your post which addressed the "fix" for my particular issue. Iffn you could point me in the right direction I would be much appreciative.

Just so you know there are lots of posts on the Microsoft board which deal with the same issue, only other apps like the store. Kinda leads me to believe it is more a windows 8.1 issue and not a dogfight issue. Regardless I am still grounded until I can get it sorted out. If any other board members have experienced the 8.1 issues and resolved them I am all ears...

Jim
