  1. You may have not had single-player issues, but I had them at the level that the game was effectively ruined after the "big patch". Do you play in VR? If you don't then maybe that is why. A fair amount of VR users, even with high-end rigs with 2080+ cards, were stuttering constantly. Now I am not stuttering at all, which feels like a miracle after a month of endless system tweaking trying to recover from the "big patch" (3.20 or 3.21 I think it was). Sure, I can test multiplayer if you want, but I never had problems there. It never was any better or worse than single-player performance at whatever time I was playing. It may be because I played on low-pop servers. I will see if I can make time for that today. The girlfriend and I are thinking about driving to Florida today though, so no promises. Il-2 is very compelling but I am not sure it trumps Florida beaches! Cleveland snow came early this year...
  2. I'm not playing multiplayer at the moment but my system is running single-player IL-2 in VR now smoothly again. The last few patches seems to have helped my particular setup quite a bit. I was very frustrated with the 3.2 patches leading up to BoBP release as the first big patch got IL-2 running better than ever on my system but the smaller patches after came close to ruining it with stutters and ghosting (all single-player). I was pissed as I had just bought some planes and was really loving the career mode in VR on my modest system. Those small patches had me putting endless hours into my setup trying to get the performance back. Nothing really did enough to get the performance back. I say this to elucidate how bad it was a month ago. I think it is more or less fixed now, however. I'm flying with a 6700k + 1070 ti + 24 GB 2133 mhz RAM off an older SSD in VR and using medium clouds and shadows. It looks gorgeous. There's a little ghosting with fights over airfields but it is really minimal. I do overclock somewhat and make sure to use open composite, but that's it. The reinstall on my SSD and elimination of any unnecessary programs probably helped at least a little as well. I hope you all find some solutions soon.
  3. For those with Nvidia cards: it seems that closing the "GeForce experience" app before I play helps as well. Not sure why that would be, but before I play Il-2 in VR I always launch open composite, then close Steam and GeForce experience. That and using MSI afterburner to OC my 1070 ti card a bit gets me to where I can play most campaign missions without any stuttering (or very little). This is with low settings in game and a 6700k processor + 24 GB 2166 RAM.
  4. Ghosting in career missions? If so, what are your rig specs if you don't mind? Thanks.
  5. Thanks for taking the time to post that, RedKestrel. I will check it out.
  6. Hmmm. Well, I can access the Steam planes I bought back when you had an access code that you’d put into the Il2 website. I guess they don’t do that anymore. I could get the planes I want through the sale here for a couple more dollars, but I don’t know how that would work with the Moscow copy I had already bought through Steam. Would there be conflicts or problems if I had a standard Moscow copy from Steam and a deluxe from the store here? And then there is the problem of playing in VR and Steam VR being not as efficient as running without it using open composite. The recent patches have made things run worse so I can’t go through Steam if it forces me to use their VR app. That’s the whole reason I use the website copy of the game. This is all quite complicated with the different places to run the game and buy from. I guess if I can launch from Steam without using Steam VR then I could redownload the game and just buy from there from now on? I wanted to support the devs though. Not really sure how this is all supposed to work unless I just ignore the Steam sales and wait for the sales on the website or just buy full price.
  7. There is nothing in game that I can see that would allow me to link to Steam. I suppose I could download a second copy of Il-2 through Steam onto my computer but since I share a connection over wifi that would take 10+ hours. I thought of that too but was thinking there must be an easier or more logical way to merge content than having two installs for two potential sale platforms. I'll see if I can refund the purchase for now. I would absolutely buy two P-40 and C202 if I could figure out a way to use them in my website install though. That would complete my collector planes collection and they both seem like fun planes to fly.
  8. Hi RedKestrel. Thanks for the response. Linked where? In game? On the website here? On the Steam app?
  9. Hi there, I bought the P-40 on Steam, where I originally bought Il-2 Stalingrad. The plane is not available for me to fly in game though. Is it because I downloaded the game from this site instead of from Steam? Confused! I tried logging in here with my Steam account but that did not help anything. Thanks for any help, Chris
  10. Thanks for posting the videos! I can see some microstutters in the second one but it looks good enough to play and have fun with. When you pitch down at 1:00 into the video, for example. Looks very playable though! What a great sim. though. Just watching that makes me want to play some... Better get some stuff done first!
  11. Looks like what happened to me after the hot-fixes. Wasn't there a Windows 10 update and a NVIDIA driver update around the same time? I know it is frustrating when your favorite game (for me) suddenly becomes more or less unplayable. I wish I had an easy solution for you. The only thing that helped me was to wipe my SSD and re-install Windows plus make sure everything else on my system was running as fast and well as possible. I still get stuttering on the really big career missions where I had none before, but the wipe and re-install did help eliminate the stuttering on smaller missions. I do have to run the game on lower settings. Hopefully there is something the devs can do to help. I don't know if the NVIDIA driver update and/or the Windows 10 update had anything to do with it, but it is possible. They seem to add a lot of bloatware as time goes on. Good luck!
  12. 2.50!? Wow, thanks for saying that as I just went ahead and bought the 109-F2 one to see what these campaigns are like. Yes, I bought some of the planes a few weeks ago when they were on sale but the more I play this the more I like it (and the more I want all the planes!).
  13. I own the standard Battle of Moscow DLC on Steam. I was wondering if I could buy it again here on the site and thereby gain the two collector planes for 19.99? Thanks, Chris
  14. Just a heads up: I fixed the majority of my performance issues and stuttering by reformatting my system/SSD drive and reinstalling Windows. I reinstalled Il-2, Oculus and Steam as well on the SSD. GPU and CPU on max power mode. Graphics are set low but I am running VR on a mid-range system so that's to be expected. I'm relieved. Game is much smoother now, more like pre-patch performance. Whew! Edit: Just to be clear, I still do get some stutters that I did not before the hot-fixes. It is just nowhere near as bad. An 8 vs 8 furball with clear skies on Kuban quick mission causes a good amount of "VR double planes" still. It is a lot more playable than it was though.
  15. It was for me too before the last hot-fixes (maybe Windows update has something to do with it). Other simulators still run great on my system though, so there's that. Very few stutters on them, as smooth as they always ran. Not sure what is up with Il-2 now but I think I will throw in the towel and just check back later when some more patches have been released. I'm jealous of those who can still run this well as I really love this game! Have fun.
