  1. No not being sarcastic at all. So the US pilots get G suits by default ? or is their a means to select G suits ? Yes I am aware that only the US really fielded G suits operationally in WWII ... Recalling that not only a G suit is required but an airframe modification is also required to supply the air through a G valve to pump the suit up.
  2. So can I equip my pilot in game with a G suit ? to take advantage of its capabilities ?
  3. Err no it cant If there is any pitch rate involved (and there always is in a barrel roll) there will be a G increment ... yes I know Iam being a pedant here .... Yep but that is not a barrel roll
  4. Do these actually work ? I don't see the nose gear in either of the polished panels no matter how much a bob around .
  5. Cloud it would seem is the culprit. Cloud on for me means 50% reduction in Frame rate.
  6. Exactly the same for me Clouds = 50% FPS hit. I have tried Jason's suggestions, ref FPS limiters VSYNCH etc. No change.
  7. On my system identical QMB mission Rhineland map. Clear 102fps. Same mission with first click of the clouds slider (Cloudy) I get 52fps. This is something I didn't see pre update. Something has changed for the worst with clouds.
  8. I am seeing this FPS hit with clouds as well. On my system identical QMB mission Rhineland map. Clear 102fps. Same mission with first click of the clouds slider (Cloudy) I get 52fps. This is something I didn't see pre update. Something has changed for the worst with clouds.
  9. In the P38 you should be with a simply keypress select the Manoeuver position of the Flap lever. In the sim all you get is up and down. The idea of the maneuver flap setting was to provide a simple means to rapidly bang down combat flap.
  10. In The P47,P51,P38 as soon as you move your head Left or Right as far as you can , its as if you have suddenly stuck your head into the air flow The wind rush is deafening.
  11. This issue was really bad around 12 months ago with a number of work arounds posted. The issue it turned out was within Windows 10 itself, as determined by some of the CH gurus. In my case a Win10 update around 10 months fixed it. I have not seen greyed out CH manager buttons since then. So all I can suggest is make sure your Win 10 install is up to date.
  12. I have fired a lot of 7.62mm, 20mm and 30mm from modern jets ... bit different to piston fighter yes but in all these types you do hear the rounds. In the case of 20mm and more so 30mm you feel the guns going off as well...
  13. Trajectory Shift or velocity jump is very real IRL . Effectively it increases the lead requirement. The biggest variable is AOA. Trajectory shift and the lead required to vary it will vary directly with AOA. Of course it also occurs laterally as well if firing with slip or skid. Trajectory shift = (Angle of Gunfire) x Fighter Velocity/(Fighter Velocity + Muzzle Velocity) Angle of Gunfire the angle between the bore line and the flight path. So as AOA changes so does the Angle of Gunfire. So changing AOA will result in changing G so in a roundabout way G does affect the lead requirement. Careful choice of Gun bore angle can offset the effects of Trajectory shift but only in the one design point chosen. Whether Trajectory shift is modeled in the sim who knows.
