What's Here?

This page is a collection of miscellaneous patches, utilities and missions for the original version of the Dynamix flight simulation game Red Baron (not the newer releases Red Baron II or Red Baron 3D.) Red Baron simulates air combat in the First World War. Although the simulation was released over five years ago, it is still highly regarded for it's groundbreaking features including detailed flight characteristics and a mission builder utility which allowed armchair aces to recreate nearly any historical mission or create their own fictional scenarios.

My involvement with Red Baron began when I became a member of the Compuserve Flight Sim Forum. I was inspired by the other creative flight-sim hackers there (especially those who were modifying Lucasfilm's Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe) and I decided to dissect the Red Baron aircraft data files. As a result, I have created several patches that modify the program to correct errors and increase historical accuracy.

All of my patches are available here as well as the best of the others created by my fellow Red Baron hackers. To download the following files, just click on the file name.

If you don't know where to start, try Bob Church's XBARON and my RBHEX4 package. Read the article in which Computer Gaming World reviewed both and said they gave the old Baron the feeling of a factory fresh sim!

Where to find Red Baron?

All letters and comments are appreciated, but please DON'T send e-mail asking me to send you a copy of the original Red Baron! The game is still being sold by Sierra On-Line. You can get the 16 color version from their site for FREE but unfortunately it will not work with most of the patches and upgrades here! Buy their full version with the Mission Builder upgrade, it's the best flight sim deal on the market!
