  1. Guldurnit, too late again. I always like to see the silliness people post before getting admin hammered.
  2. It's a decent compromise as I doubt they have modeled - the now unbalanced crankshaft shaking itself to death, throwing rods and eventually breaking the engine free from the mounts thereby changing the COG and the aircaft suddently pitching violently upwards at such a rate as to render you uncounscious...............
  3. No one in this thread is inviting you to leave. Everyone who is opposed to the 262, in this thread, is actually not defending the unjust banning that took place either. You are more than welcome to fly the very competitive German AC without having the 262 which is so far off the performance scale it is in it's own category. And while we are at it, over my and other's objections, the 262 is again available in limited numbers on OMD.
  4. 262 and P-51 on 150 is no comparison at all. It just isn’t - historically or in game - unless the 262 is on short final. I don’t want Gladiators or Mig-15’s or F-35’s either. There is no viable reason to see props vs jets until we get to Korea sometime in the distant future or we suddenly get waves of viermots blackening the skies.......also unlikely in a Normal dogfight server. I respect you as a pilot but this subject is blinding you in terms of playability for the players at large.
  5. It's like a game of telephone, once we get past page five, or so, the threads can go pretty much anywhere.
  6. At the risk of waking the wrath of the "not another 109" group, an E4 and eight gun Spit would be a helluva (an) addition considering the addition of a Hurricane. I'm sure we could find a suitable map to build some scenarios from that.............somehow. Give the Dev's some credit. There is no way the expansion would be Midway alone and this has been discussed to death. Midway is chosen as the title for name recognition only. It will be some combination of early Pacific operations. The original plan was for two or three expansions to cover the war in the east. I'm sure that has been refinded since then. Outside of some early hiccups/teething there have been no significant (minor, sure/significant, no) missteps from this team in years. While there are others, the singular MAJOR hurdle holding up BoMI is obtaining and interpreting original documentation on Japanese aircraft. There are numerous threads and Dev quotes on this. When that is cleared we will be full steam ahead.....................
  7. Not typically. They are toys for our pleasure but also vital income for the Dev’s between major releases.
  8. Both trailers and posters are created by people at the corporate level. They often have little relation or input from the directors and producers. Directors often complain about trailers for their own movies for this reason. While I complained when I first saw the poster several months ago, I realized some contract graphic designer with no aviation background probably put this together. The trailer isn’t great but it isn’t terrible either and can be considered the “alpha” build in our vernacular. I’m gonna watch the movie and see how it stands on its own. Further, piggybacking an IL2 Battle of Midway announcement that week would be rediculously awesome if we could pull that off! Couple million dollars in free advertising - maybe a happimeal (sic) toy or Jason and Han bobblehead give-a-way. The possibilities are endless .;)
  9. Very Large! And I'm buying them all. Probably a couple to give away as well. Jason, Will the Hurricane be available in the original eight gun base model (IIA or IIB preferably)?
  10. The 262 is bad for a Normal dogfight server. The performance gap between the prop aircraft means the better pilot usually wins. The 262 is nearly untouchable. Fly it on larger historical maps or offline. It has no place here. It's just that simple.
  11. Between the audio and the report it appears they had a partial or full failure of number 4. I think it's way too early to draw conclusions about number 3 yet.
  12. YES, I meant to put this in. Absolutely required per JonRedcorn and I forgot to put it in the initial blurb. Clear your startup.cfg. I did it once before the Windows update and again right after. You can try Low Latency on "ON" or "Ultra" different guys had success with this configuration. Some liked ON (I didn't get a noticable bump) and others swear by Ultra. Ultra worked for my setup.
  13. Switched Nvidia Program Settings to Il-2.exe as suggested and no change. Global settings are all Nvidia default. Game still running great.
  14. That is, perhaps, a good question. I'm sure I said I was a Neophyte. It's working well nonetheless and my stuttering is solved. I'll leave it for now.
  15. I started another thread with my settings which has my mid-level rig running really well now. Jason or Mod can you lock that thread but leave the link up please.
  16. I just turned off Vsync in Nvidia and picked up a couple more FPS by letting the game handle it. Everything else is as noted and still running very well. I will post it there as well and maybe ask the Mods to close this thread.
  17. Hey, I scoured the forums for fixes to the vicious stutters I was getting. There is a lot of info out there and I picked from what seemed to be the best/most logical resources. I am a total Neophyte at this stuff so I looked at Nvidia settings, game settings, and even one of the VR threads despite running TrakIR. Jason is, of course the best resource but JonRedcorn, Slap, Thad and Therion (and others) also had input in my tweaks. It's maybe not final yet but I went from heavy stuters and frame freezes every 60-90 seconds to just a few micro stutters per sortie and a very stable 60 fps online. These settings are working really well for me personally in the same two servers I was struggling mightily in just yesterday. Your mileage may vary. I'm running a 1070ti card and the rest of my specs are in my sig. This is a mid-level to mid-high level rig now-a-days. It was mid-high to high when I spec'd it a few years ago. I'm going to post my settings first for the TLDR crowd and then post my process - so far. I have a couple more things to try but so far I'm VERY PLEASED with the result. Surprisingly, Distant Landscape to x4 and Horizon to 150 works better than trying to limit them. Not sure who I picked that one off from, I think it was in the VR thread, but it totally worked for me. I've tried Vsync in two out of the three possible configurations. Nvidia ON only which didn't work for me. BOTH Nvidia and game settings ON which is my current setting and working great. I still have to try game ON and Nvidia OFF. I'll let you know how that goes later.
  18. It is the correct engine. Packard license built the Rolls Royce Merlin under. All P-51’s flew with Packard Merlin’s.
  19. The most important takeaway here is: WHERE CAN I WALK THROUGH A LANCASTER?
  20. Ambrose is more lazy with citations than outright plagerizing. Most of the other's after Wild Blue (which he did cite but also did lift) are considered "similar" as opposed to being used directly. It's hard to write much that is completely new when you are documenting facts as opposed to fiction. Similar to writing music. Every note and single measure has probably already been written long ago. It's only when you start combining measures that you can get into trouble. Regarding Blythe, Ambrose only stated a sniper shot him in the neck. He never says anything further about him in the book. Anyone reading the book could draw any conclustion from that passage they want. The producers put in the blurb about never recovering from his wounds, got called out by Blythe's family and later appologized.
  21. Masters of the Air has been green lit. Spielberg and Hanks are producing but HBO passed. It will be among Apple's flagship entries into streaming TV. https://www.cnn.com/2019/10/11/entertainment/masters-of-air-steven-spielberg-tom-hanks-apple/index.html I loved Band of Brothers but found The Pacific rather meh. I'm not quite sure what to think on HBO taking a pass. Here's hoping it's as good as Brothers.
  22. It's not moral hypocrisy. While I am opposed to chute killing, paratroopers have an offensive capability on the ground - particularly en masse. Bailed our aircrew have essentially none and will shortly be prisoners of war.
  23. That was a limitation which could not be overcome in the course of hitting legitimate targets. I don’t include it in my criticism, personally. Your mileage may vary.
  24. "This largely has nothing to do with the American bombing, at least in Europe. The American bombing was dedicated to precision bombing of legitimate strategic targets. With some exceptions." While largely true, the bombing of Hamburg and Dresden were dedicated to the destruction of the cities and the AAF was complicit. "With some exceptions," doesn't really cover the scope of the civilian casualties inflicted. Let others gloss over their histories, we should not. We generally stayed true to our stated goal of military industrial targets but we have to own our mis-deeds as well.
