Type in 'revenge' while playing.
Can't get a medal or promotion? Well, worry no more.
Go to your settings and set the following:
Flight Model: Realistic
Avioninics : Simplified
Weapons : Exagerated
Autopilot : Steerpoint
Refuel : Realistic
Padlocking : Realistic
You can turn on the labels, to help identify enemy.
Your overall should be 80%.
Apply the settings. Go to campaign. Set your flight
up (take a BARCAP and take some BLU 27s to kill ground
troops) with munitions. When you are one the runway
type CRTL+Z Z (You will hear a click. If you hear a
flare launch, you need to type it again). Turn on your labels.
Okay, you should be invincible. Go and kill the enemy (take
out as many air/ground troops as possible!). After completing
BARCAP, return to base and land. Taxi clear of the runway and
type in CTRL+Z Z one more time (to turn off invincible mode)
and then exit the mission. When you get to the debrief you
should get a medal (if you killed more than 2 or 4 aircraft
and about 20 to 30 ground pounders). Best bet, take out some
MI 24s or MD 500s along with the MiGs to boost A-A kills.
Your medal will range anywhere from the Distinguished Flying
Cross to the Silver Star. Make sure you are successful.
Best bet, take #2 (in 2 flight) or #4 (in full fligt) positions.
This leaves the AI to lead the flight and you free to kill
targets of opportunity.
Good luck, and keep the enemy off your six!
NOTE:This works in v1.07, but with 1.08 coming out, who
Set the system date to May 15. Start the game and select any
campaign and mission. Click on the 'Ready to Fly' icon and
carefully watch the loading screen.
Successful landings require enough speed for a soft
touchdown; keep your speed high enough (between 160 and
200 knots) for a low angle of attack and vertical velocity.
Think of Sidewinders as very short-range weapons; in
Falcon 4.0, they're definitely for enemies you can see clearly.
When playing through the tutorials, also consult the
reference section regarding what you're learning; Falcon 4.0 is best conquered in large chunks.
