  1. With the amount of research that has gone into presenting a high fidelity simulation of this nearly extinct warbird, I feel like you and your team are doing as much as any museum to keep its memory alive for future generations. I feel like the purchase of BoBP offers such an embarrassment of riches that the hardest thing will be deciding where to start. Great job team!
  2. Ah yes, a bit of the ol' Ludwig Van...
  3. Great video! I watch IL-2 videos on YouTube and they always make me feel like the least competent pilot here. Nice to watch others share some of the same frustrations! Love the music choice too, though I'm partial to this version of Nessun Dorma:
  4. Had a similar issue. My Alienware PC crapped out just after the One year warranty expired due to overheating from a faulty cooling system that claimed many other's computers. Alienware (Dell) refused to acknowledge this defect. Thought I would be up and running again after awhile, but due to financial reasons I only had a slow lap top that could not run IL-2. It ended up being three years plus before I could get my current gaming PC. Now my flying time is very limited, but Oh the Joy of being able to take to the skies in VR! Hang in there, the wait will be worth it!
  5. Same problem here. On the main menu I get: "#1. No connection with authorization server. #2. Your connection to Master-Server was temporarily lost. Check your internet connection." I can Login Offline only and play in Non-VR mode (yuck!). No problem connecting to Steam with my other games, both VR and non-VR.
  6. The first thing I was going to do when I flew her was jam the throttle forward and watch her engines disintegrate. Once I got my hands on her, she was so beautiful I couldn't bear to treat her that way. I managed my throttle carefully, set her down gently on the runway, and then overshot by a mile and destroyed her. There will never be another just like her. Good thing she has so many sisters...
  7. Ok, finally some video of the motion simulator rig in action. Kind of low res, but you get an idea of just how violent aerial combat can be: https://youtu.be/izwSfpPqKXk?t=60
  8. Thanks for the update! My guess would be the debut of the 262 will occur at the Sim convention followed immediately, if not simultaneously, with release to IL-2 customers. I must confess, the first thing I plan to do with my beautiful new Schwalbe is to jam the the throttle forward and watch the fireworks ensue. I just won't be able to resist the temptation! I don't know yet if I will then bail out or try to dead stick it home.
  9. Totally removed the partial excerpt from the 1939 song that was triggering the copyright protection. And one more time I present for your viewing pleasure....
  10. I'm removing the excerpt from a song from 1939 that keeps triggering the copyright protection. Oddly, there is a YouTube video of the entire recording that is not blocked at all and not by the recording company. Odd how these things work. I will remove it completely and repost the video after work today.
  11. I'm getting notification it's still blocked. Can any one else see it? Did not realize I could jettison the rocket tubes- doh!
  12. Re-editing to see if I can get it past the copyright police. Three excerpts from songs from 75+ years ago. One got flagged. Will trim it further and repost. Funny thing is the video shows up fine in my post. Edit: Ok, let me know if this version is visible.
  13. I enjoyed the immersiveness of Jade Monkey's Knocking at Enemy Gates Mission for the P-47 so much I made a video from it: Hopefully this latest version won't trigger the copyright police... And now, with the offending snippet removed, hopefully the third time is the charm... Love the sight of those brutish P-47's flying in formation in their bare aluminum skins. Lots of editing in this one. I also added excerpts from some popular music of the 1940 to 1943 time period. Jade Monkey's mission file:
  14. Very authentic looking! Well done.
  15. Why do I feel like smoking a cigarette after watching that?
  16. Brilliant! You certainly had the element of surprise on your side! My son and I laughed watching this. Well done. I salute your perseverance!
  17. As was pointed out in this account, all I could think of while reading this was the young pilot who was rushed through flight training and sent into battle against superior numbers of allied flyers in a plane he was still struggling to learn. And you flew combat missions until you died or the war ended. A frightening prospect.
  18. I'm amazed at the quality and breadth of work this small team has produced for what is now unfortunately a niche corner of the gaming market. Every single time I put my Rift on and find myself sitting in a photo realistic WWII fighter cockpit I get the same sense of awe and glee. I would never have believed I would experience something like this during my lifetime even ten years ago. This sim is a labor of love and dedication that keeps a vital era of history alive. May it continue on as long as this community supports it. My deep thanks to everyone involved.
  19. Every aspect of this DD is jaw dropping! Much appreciation to the Devs for all their hard work. The 262 looks fantastic and I can't wait to try out the P-38. Reminds of the time I met a fellow who was ground crew in the Pacific. When he said he worked on P-38's I asked how he liked them compared to other fighters and he just replied, "Twice the work." 😁
  20. It's a shame, but the price of progress I guess in order to get a better sim. As long as there's nothing wrong with my installation. They were taking up too much space on my hard drive anyway- time to dump em and start hoarding new BoX moments.
  21. Same thing happening to me on all tracks recorded before today.
  22. Got my Rift for Christmas. Found set up was surprisingly easy and trouble free, logged on to IL-2 and... OMG LOOK AT THIS COCKPIT IT"S JUST SO BEAUTIFUL!!! I mostly do single player and my time is limited but the experience is gobsmacking.
