  1. Great skin, ICDP - I hope that you'll make an historically-correct version available for us? Rob
  2. A big thank you from me (down here in South Africa!) for the manner in which you are continually improving/upgrading this sim!
  3. Always ready! Have just seen your excellent video, Tank Crew - Clash at Prokhorovka! Any more in the pipeline?
  4. I don't believe that I've noticed these white circles before (see attached screenshot). Can someone advise me as to what these are ... and how do I get rid of them? Many thanks.
  5. It looks great! Who is doing these textures? Nothing to do with Desert Wings, I presume?
  6. Nice work - what video editor is it?
  7. I must be rather "thick" - I can't work out how to download and install 'Desert Wings'. I bought Desert Wings through 1C and have an activation code from my account with 1C. I've attached my opening page in "Steam" (logged in as "mungee") - for the life of me, I cannot see "games" at the top of this page - it must be another page? I'd be grateful for any assistance on this. Many thanks.
  8. Excellent, Garensterz17! Btw, =HH=Pauk, have you got any movies in the works? I really appreciate your work!
  9. Dear Therion i am most embarrassed to tell you that: - the LaGG-3 machine gun only works when the aircraft’s engine is running - the cannon does not require that (that fixed me!); and - I’d forgotten that I’d taken the aircraft off complex engine management (in the Custom mode) and hence the fuel mixture and RPM levers would not respond to key depressions!! i feel such a bloody fool! Sorry about all that!
  10. Thanks, Therion. I will be trying what you suggested - I've just done a fresh download and install of "IL-2 Sturmovik : Great Battles" because the joystick attempts again screwed up the machine command in "IL-2 ….. " - the machine gun button (on the screen/in the sim) depresses (one can see that!) but no firing - on the other hand, the cannon fires 100%?! Will report back tomorrow - don't want to rush things at this late hour. Btw, when you said that you didn't use the X-55 profile software, does that mean that you simply plug the joystick and driver into the USB ports (without installing the Mad Katz software AND drivers?) and allow Windows to identify these and install software/drivers for them? If so, presumably one can't have the 3 modes on the throttle? Btw, I inadvertently posted my query twice - I clicked "submit" when I was closing my various Windows down, not realising that the first "submit" had gone through … and I couldn't delete the second post (there's obviously a way to do it, but I couldn't find it). Regards
  11. I tried the I-16 and LaGG-3 but both were working with the key depressions (combination of keys/single key) but not when I went to the joystick/throttle buttons/switches and the back to the actual keys.
  12. I’ve had a Saitek X-55 Rhino joystick/throttle HOTAS for some years now and, after some initial teething problems, it’s served me reasonably well. However, and I believe that since the most recent “IL-2 Sturmovik : Great Battles” update, I’ve had problems with my X-55 HOTAS which now APPEARS to have affected the flight sim itself!! Let me explain: - after having the problems, as described above, I decided to uninstall the software and driver for my X-55 HOTAS and ‘IL-2 Sturmovik : Great Battles’ - after downloading and reinstalling ‘IL-2 Sturmovik : Great Battles’ I tested the ‘machine guns’ - that was by pressing the RAlt + Space keys on the keyboard - it worked perfectly, firing a burst of machine gun fire for us long as I held down RAlt + Space keys. - I then downloaded and installed the software and drivers for my X-55 HOTAS - I then programmed RAlt + Space to the trigger on the X-55 joystick (usin* the X-55 HOTAS profile software). - Saved the settings on the X-55 HOTAS and restarted my PC - Booted up ‘IL-2 Sturmovik : Great Battles’ and set up a Quick Mission - Pressed the joystick trigger and there was an audible click ... but nothing else - funnily enough, one can see the firing button on the joystick, on the screen/in the sim being depressed, but no firing! - I then tried the key combination on the keyboard (RAlt + Space) and, again, no firing but the same as with the joystick ie a click, depression of the gun button, but no burst of machine gun fire. - I then uninstalled the X-55 HOTAS software and drivers, restarted my PC and then again tried the key combination (RAlt + Space) - no difference - the keys NOW don’t get the machine gun to fire! - Changed the key for ‘Machine Guns’ (in “Key Settings” of “IL-2 Sturmovik : Great Battles”) to a single key (I can’t remember which one) and again the machine guns don’t fire! A BIG MYSTERY!! Any ideas on this?

  14. I'm having problems with the sim AND my flight controllers and have decided that the best thing would be to uninstall and then reinstall the software for BOTH of these. However, when I try and uninstall 'IL-2 Sturmovik : Great Battles' I get the attached ERROR MESSAGE - essentially stating that I don't have the file "….\unins000.dat" (I do have the file "....\unins000.exe though and clicking on that file also asks for "...'\uninsta000.dat"). Any assistance on this would be appreciated. Thanks
  15. I'm not sure what's happened but when a depress the key combination for "machine guns", it fires a single shot and that's that ie it does not "repeat"? I've changed the key setting (combination) for this action (machine guns) and it makes no difference - any ideas as to why it's doing this? Thanks
