    Whatever the cause.... it 'seems' to take more ammo to destroy enemy craft.
  2. Try saving the new version as 'save as' with a new name and save it NOT in your normal directory or folder. Then copy it from there to your missions folder. Both should then display.

    From DD 204 we have revisited the gunfire dispersion model and performed additional research on the historical documents covering the fire dispersion depending on the gun mounting. There are no new sources, but we have re-analyzed our approach and one problem became apparent - some sources provide fire dispersion data for single shots while others have data for short bursts. For some aircraft, the sources provide dispersion data for both cases - this allowed us to build a statistical model for single/burst fire dispersion ratio. Having updated the dispersion model, we're now able to tune the fire dispersion separately for single and burst fire. Of course, we've taken into account the fact that even when you fire a burst, the first projectile has the fire dispersion of single shot while the subsequent ones deviate more because they are modeled as shots in a burst. The fire dispersion increases with the gun temperature as before. In the most cases, the fire dispersion has been already modeled using the burst fire data, so the changes in these aircraft will be hardly noticeable when firing in bursts, but the single shot dispersion will be lowered greatly: 2-2.5 times. On the contrary, the Soviet fighters were set up using single fire data before so now their fire dispersion will be increased 2.11-2.86 times depending on the gun and aircraft (this isn't that much at the effective fire distances though, see below). In addition, thanks to this research, the single fire dispersion of the heavy 30 mm and 37 mm guns has been slightly lowered while the burst fire values stayed the same. It should be noted that all these changes (applied to each aircraft independently) gave the overall effect of reducing the difference in the fire accuracy among the different planes (for fuselage mounted and wing mounted guns that are close to the fuselage). Excluding the rare exceptions, the fire dispersion for non-overheated guns is 0.66-0.95 thousandths of distance. At the effective fire distances, this results in the fire pattern of around 1 ft or slightly more. I suspect these adjustments or changes to gunfire dispersion is contributing to more ammo being needed currently to damage and down aircraft.
  4. I think they should have included it in the Tank Keymapping listing in the game.
  5. I reset my network setting and now Ipconfig shows that IP Routing is inabled. Still can't host anything though. ๐Ÿ™
  6. L Ctrl + C change crew position. Same as for Aircraft. Dated chart below.
  7. I don't think any grease is a good solution. Simply reduce your throttles Friction Adjustment Screw [#7 in image] way down. It's located on the bottom of the throttle base. My handle Slides smoothly. I can push it forward and back with one finger and experience no stiction. This with the base sitting on a smooth table top. The base doesn't budge.

    Cannot get server to work.

    Salutations, I have been attempting to run a server with DServer from the same computer for two years and have failed completely. Most disappointing and frustrating. I get the same disappointing results using the in-game Multiplayer Coop Server. โ˜น๏ธ I have done and tried everything that has been presented to run my server. No success at all. ๐Ÿ™ I can join and download other peoples server mission information... so it isn't the ports. I've spent money on port forwarding software and still no success. I've given up trying for the time being. ๐Ÿ˜

    OMG OMG OMG is this amazing

    Salutations, That was pretty good recommendation for IL2 VR and the Odyssey+. What are your system stats?
  10. Salutations, By using the cmd function and inputing ipconfig/all I received a readout that indicated that my computer has IP Routing NOT enabled! No wonder everything I have tried to forward ports hasn't worked! My question and dilemma now is.... how exactly do I Enable IP Routing?
  11. Thanks JimTM and others that tried to help.
  12. The mission is newly entered into the editor and saved. I can login to other servers and their files are downloadable correctly. Some how I can get onto server and receive downloads from them. I doubt the ports are the problem. I am very, very frustrated right now. Too the point of anger. The thought entered my mind to put my fist through my monitor. Time to stop these efforts for the time being. Sorry guys. I've tried to overcome this problem for almost two year. It appear hopeless right now. PS. Does the directory from which the mission is located of any importance and long as the .list file is accurate?
  13. From within IL2 my server is displayed and I was able to join it. This was registered on the Dserver display. I try the Cooperative Comples Example.
  14. DServer shows that it is successfully registered on master sever. I'm at a loss. Should I try setting it up with the in game multiplayer coop system?
