 B-17 Flying Fortress Cheats

B-17 Flying Fortress

Some Hints:
Success in B-17 revolves around taking care of and learning from your crew. Take
time to notice how the computer-controlled gunners aim for the fast moving fighters
and try to learn from their techniques. When you are being attacked, use 'Z' and 'X'
to change to an enemy fighter, then SHIFT-F1 to see the battle from the fighter 
pilot's view.

Take care of your engines:
Make regular checks on the outside view to check your engines; if your co-pilot 
has been hit you don't get any warning. Fuel leaks can be critical to the success of
a mission. If necessary you need to turn off an engine or two and drop out of 
formation to conserve fuel. If your engines are on fire point the nose at the ground
and try diving at between 350-400 mph - this is useful in later levels when one fire
extinguisher per engine isn't enough.

A healthy crew is a happy crew:
Make regular checks to ensure the crew is OK and that the guns aren't jammed - it's
easy to miss messages in the heat of combat. Keep at least one pilot healthy because
the plane can end up in a spin if it's in a turn when the pilot is hit, giving little
time to bail out.

Make the radio operator send a MayDay message to improve your chances of survival 
when you're bailing out over the channel. Landing an engineless, bullet-ridden, 
flame-scorched B-17 after a mission is risky and difficult. Bail out over the channel
to ensure mission success. Before landing, attempt to heal injured crew otherwise 
they are hospitalised. Having more than one crew member peform first aid on a casualty
increases the chances of success.

Take out enemy fighters:
Go to the outside view of the B-17 and place the mouse pointer on the far right. 
A box should appear with some planes. The Americans are the planes next to the 
stars. The Germans are marked with + signs. Click on the German planes and take 
control by pressing M. Then, bail out. Use the [ and ] keys to get the entire 
squadron. Do this to every squadron to become fighter-free.

Get the P-51:
To get the P-51 you just have to start out in mid to late 1944.
Note the missions are harder.

Get the ME 262:
Start a mission in mid to late 1944, then go to heavily defended areas.

Custom soundtrack:
Replace the game disc with an audio CD during game play. The game only uses the 
CD-ROM for music. The music from the audio CD will play in the menus, but not 
during missions.
