  1. I browsed through the official IRL flight manual from 1945 today and it was very interesting. (Can be downloaded here> https://mega.nz/folder/WR9hwQoK#NXGsaNB-30aOO8Ki_KS0tA/file/ec1iBK4b) I noticed that it said that you should control so the nose wheel is centered by looking at the mirrors on the engine sides. I only fly in VR and don't see anything else but the runway no matter how much I turn and toss in the seat. Anyone that can actually see the nose wheel? Furthermore the stall and spin characteristics seemed a little too nice, it basically exits the spin by itself, contrary to the flight manual. Anyway, my favorite bird 🙂
  2. Thanks for a great work! Just a comment on this. My flight leader is constantly speeding up and then bleed off speed in a repetitive pattern while enroute. No big problem and it doesn't happen at climb out or at the target.
  3. This is, hands down, the best documentary about the P-38 (and probably about any ww2 fighter) there is! I learned a ton of good stuff about this wonderful bird. See it if you haven't already!
  4. An update now when I'm at mission 14. The enemy don't return fire when I first engage them but rather stays in formation like a said before. Then after a while, I'm unsure if it's time dependent or dependent on distance from something but suddenly they start shooting and become lethal... really strange.
  5. Hi Jaegermeister! Thanks for a great campaign so far (I just completed mission #9). One comment though, as somebody wrote here before, the enemy AI skills are extremely poor. They basically just fly straight ahead in formation and never get a shot off. I think there were some mission, (maybe 3rd or 4th) were one AI was kind of OK and chased me a bit but otherwise it's basically a veritable turkey shoot 😄 Maybe you can have a look at the enemy AI? Thanks for an otherwise great campaign, I really like what you did with a little creativity!
  6. I really like what I hear. VR to the spring or so would be awesome! 😃 And that you said that it will come to CLOD at the same time is simply amazing 👏 Big thanks for all your work these years. I'm sure it's gonna be worth the wait after all.
  7. Thanks a lot man! Although that video didn't work for me it got me on the right track, I found this one that solved it for me! Now I just wonder why I suddenly needed another program for this to work as it used to work before. Anyway, thanks again!
  8. Wow! This is so beautiful and with so many interesting aircraft! The med and NA is also my favorite theater... ...but I'm afraid I can´t buy it until it gets VR support. It´s a shame, I really want this piece of eye candy!
  9. Thanks for your reply. Yes, I checked both before I added the telemetry lines per Andre's instructions and after. It doesn't work regardless, unfortunately. After I added the lines, I did try out Simshaker Wings which worked correctly. But I would still like to keep the old option of playing without paid software. Anybody who can help?
  10. I've been using Andre's software for DCS which has been really great. For IL-2 though I so far haven't used any special software but just let my Buttkicker rumble along with the noise from the game which actually was pretty good. However, now it seems that that doesn't work anymore. Whenever I start IL-2 there's no reaction at all from the Buttkicker (it works perfectly with DCS so no problem with it). I haven't been playing IL-2 for a couple of months so anybody know if there's been some change lately? Can someone confirm that they still can use a Buttkicker in IL-2 without software? Thanks
  11. I actually tried that a week ago and then my VR stopped working, the screens turned grey so I'm not super keen to try that again. Have you done it on an Valve Index?
  12. I have been away from IL-2 for some time and have upgraded my headset in the meantime (index). Now when I came back I noticed that the chaperone was back but instead of blue it's now at least grey. I don't have this problem in DCS (which is the only other VR game I play). Nevertheless, I have googled on this one but haven't found any tips that actually work. Any idea how to remove this very immersion breaking thing? Thanks!
  13. Thanks JG4_dingsda! Just returned to IL-2 after a lengthy period only doing DCS but I got excited over this one. Just played the first mission yet but really liked the voice over.
  14. If the loser is Index I can buy it from you for a reasonable price! ☺️
  15. You only play multiplayer? For me as a mainly SP guy, competitiveness is not a big deal as long as I stand a chance against the AI (which I fortunately do 😄).
  16. Anyone knows how to uninstall this mod? I thought I only added it to JSGME but it turned out I accidently added it manually as well when I had problems installing it in the first place...
  17. I'm a VR player so won't play CLoD as long as it's not supporting VR. I hope the devs chose the right path and that the potential players that would join if it had VR support aren't so big (or bigger than the current player base). The Battle of Britain is one of my favourite eras so I'm very much looking forward to be able to play this game again! ☺️
  18. Same problem for me, can't start the campaign (first mission) and can't convert either. Would be great if someone came up with a workaround.
  19. Thanks, I solved the boost things... I stupidly enough had only assigned the boost key to the first engine but not the second. The mixture thing is weird though and seems like a bug. As long as I don't deselect/select engines the it works flawlessly.
  20. Starting to learn this bird but having a few issues that maybe some of you can help me with... Boost. Even though I have both engines selected, whenever I activate boost it only kicks in on the first engine Mixture. I know that I need to have the mixture at full when I start, then I lower it one notch to takeoff and then down to around 50% after take off so I get rid of the black smoke. But when I select and deselect the engines the mixture get stuck and there seems to be no way I can adjust it after that. Thanks!
  21. Hope they will announce something juicy... still remember playing European Air War over 20 years ago, attacking large bomber formations of B-17s/24s/26s in a Schwalbe...
  22. Are we going to get any other bombers than B-25 in BoBP? I would love to kill some four engines in a Me 262.
  23. X plane 11 is a really poor performer in VR unfortunately... To its defense: It's possible to get to run acceptable but you need to do a lot of tweaking (also outside the game with graphic card settings etc.). You also need a lot of scenary and add-ons to make it look nice. The devloper, Laminar Research, are working on VR optimization and have made some progress though so I figure it will get better pretty soon. Really? I thought AVX2 was not really a thing for games... would be interesting to read up a bit on that, do you have more info on IL-2 and AVX2?
  24. Anybody knows how to stow the sight? The keybindings seems to say RAlt+F but it doesn't work. Tried to map a joystick button as well but no joy...
  25. Thanks a lot for your opinions! I currently use the Rift in IL-2, DCS and X plane so especially in IL-2 and DCS the FOV feels important to me. Will probably buy Valve Index due to the bigger FOV if the image clarity of that is not miles away from this. @spitfirejoe What computer specs do you have btw?
