  1. Thank you! Both those sources seen very useful. Need to get the book ordered into the library. Thanks again! S! Stumble.
  2. Not sure how to delete the post ... Mods?
  3. Hi, I know this is very off the topic of IL2 but I'm hoping someone in this community knows anything about The Battle of Passchendaele, and more specifically the 12th October 1917, which is now referred to New Zealand's darkest day. I have a history research assessment where I research a topic and then talk about it's significance to New Zealand. It would be great to have as much information as I can! Any story's of relatives or whatnot who know anything about it would be greatly appreciated. This is probably a long shot. Will take the post down if there's nothing. S! Stumble.

    looking for a mentor

    Hey mate, I haven't actually gotten Flying Circus (I think I'm waiting for the full release. I don't even know anymore...). Anyhow, I come from Rise of Fight. I highly suggest watching Wagga'z wing's You Tube videos about various flight techniques and how to stay alive. They are made for rise if flight but I'm very sure they go hand in hand. I will point you specifically to these videos here: As I say, these are very informative videos and I highly suggest checking em out. Salute! Stumble.

    Homemade trcopter drone

    That's amazing! Now that's some realism right there haha. I wonder if I could implement that into my drone/hoverbot thingy.... Sounds interesting. Feel free to post pictures or any updates of your own build here. Im happy to see others creations! S! Stumble.

    When to stop shooting?

    @AndyJWest Fair enough. You raise some pretty good points there. I do feel like ww1 was the turning point where it was less about the people fighting but more about the political leaders. At least that's the way the movies portray it haha ๐Ÿ˜‚ That reminds me, I'm very keen to try find a way of watching Sir Peter Jackson's latest film "They shall not grow old". The amazing thing about this film is that he's trying to not introduce any historians opinion but have all the information come straight from the people that were there, who were experiencing not only the horrific side of war but also the fact that it felt like a big adventure! At least that's what I can tell from the trailers/ various bits and pieces from YouTube. S! Stumble.

    I feel like we have to remember that this is set during WW1. Believe it or not they used to have this thing called "Chivalry". It's a fairly forgotten term these days ๐Ÿ˜‚ But yeah, don't shoot em if they don't have any chance to fight back. It just ain't nice I reckon. That's my two cents. S! PS No parachutes to shoot at! Giving a pilot a parachute will give em a chance to coware away and leave the battle. Haha

    Opentrack TrackIR Stuttering/Poor Performance?

    First off, you could try FaceTrackNoIR with the Free track plugin. That's what I've been using with RoF and it works perfectly besides one thing. There's this strange bug where u can't look 90ยฐ up but only a maximum of a about 60-70ยฐ even though all the curves and stuff are set to an output of 90ยฐ. As it turns out someone at the RoF forums found out that you need to adjust some of the game files within RoF and that makes it work perfectly! However, I've tried this in Battle of Stalingrad (BoS) but it doesn't seem to work. It still can't look up fully even after modifying the files. Considering that FC runs of the same BoX engine I assume you might have a similar problem. https://riseofflight.com/forum/topic/47688-facetracknoir-90-degree-or-more-pitch-problem/#entry693186 I did try open track on BoS but it was absolutely horrible. I tried for a long time fidling around with all the settings but nothing made it nice and smooth compared to FaceTrackNoIR with the IR plugin. Could you perhaps send me your settings file for open track that you say works for RoF? If it's not too much to ask. It would be great to give it a go! Salute! Stumble.
  10. Looking forward to it! Good luck with 2019!

    Fire in the hole

    I've always thought this would make gameplay alot better. Adding things like this would add this extra sense of realism, just like adding ground vehicles or what not. It may seem a little pointless/waste of the developers time, but I reckon it's worth it. Hope the devs consider it!

    Interesting skinning project

    Get Panther onto it. I'm sure he's up for the challenge hahaha ๐Ÿ˜‚
  14. Hi Chaps, I'm posting here to see if any of you guys know how to fix a little problem I'm having with FaceTrackNoIR. I'm using the free track plugin with a 3 point IR hat setup. Unfortunately I'm having a similar problem to what I had with RoF where I couldn't look up even though I had all my curves set up correctly. In the Free track software the output value did show 90 degrees looking up but in reality (well, in this virtual reality... Ohh nevermind ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚) I could only look up about 60 degrees (in game). This was fixed by going into the RoF files and changing around some values. You can see the discussion here: https://riseofflight.com/forum/topic/47688-facetracknoir-90-degree-or-more-pitch-problem/#entry693186 I tried this same solution for BoS but to no avail. Does anyone know the solution to this? I decided to end up trying open track but it was no where near as smooth/nice as FaceTrackNoIR. I'm not sure if this is the app itself or just the way I set it up. I even tried following that tutorial I found somewhere in the forums. Any help is appreciated. Salute! Stumble.
