  1. AI pilots are now awesome, AI gunners are still super-human garbage (in my opinion).
  2. In my opinion, WW2 wing-root failures are the norm in IL2 when they should be the exception. It's the arcade-DM white elephant in the sim's room.
  3. Me and my brother frequently have this when flying D7Fs together. We also see standard skins momentarily before they morph back to the custom ones we use.
  4. Welcome to the machine-world, where human interaction, good-will and empathy are subsumed by the capitalist dogma.
  5. I was in a head-on car crash, combined speed around 70mph. The airbag hit me hard enough that I wasn't able to retain a memory post-impact for longer than a minute (lasted a few hours) but I was aware of it and also immediately fully functional. Not the same as a bullet of course.
  6. Just whatsapped him, he's already done exactly that (refunded the steam purchase and gone direct to IL2.com).
  7. I'm pretty sure the pilot models have hit boxes and require a bullet to go through them to injure/kill the pilot. If that's not happening it must be a bug, not an intentional design.
  8. A friend of mine bought BoS on steam a few days ago and has had nothing but grief trying to get it to run. First it was a couple of missing .dll files (fixed by installing Visual Studio), then he couldn't get past the "new account" choices on login (kept coming up with "disconnected from master server"). If I'd known before he bought it I would have advised him to order it direct.
  9. The AI on ace setting flys and fights better than RL human sprogs did (if you believe the numerous RL accounts).
  10. I had two good near-blackouts online last night (D7f), after the hotfix to the final release.
  11. They load for me. Sorry dude, some kind of local glitch I guess.
  12. Don't get excited, barely a discernible difference.
  13. You trippin'? Lol. I have my quite normal ideas of what makes for a good MP server. Do I give much of a hoot there aren't enough players to fulfil a whole bunch of different wishes? Nope, very ambivalent here. Me and my brother have our money's worth of fun flying together online, then we play Squad or HLL. If there was a WW1 community here worthy of the description I might care more but there isn't. Yes, kind of sad but really not important in the grand scheme. I punted my idea, very little interest, sad matters etc. Posting points, casual entertainment really. Not trippin', more like stoned with the afore-mentioned ambivalence. Flogging dead horses requires rather too much effort.
  14. Without proper AI it is. Just a tiny number of humans taking off, flying to the ring and brawling. Yes, it has missions other than that...how many fly them? The whole thing is about as far from environmental realism as WT.
  15. Yeah, you're not wrong. They should have had more faith in doing what they were suggested to do with RoF, which was start from 1914 and evolve the game in a historically linear fashion. The argument then was that the shiny high-tech stuff was where the sale's money was at and I guess it worked then. Now, apparently not.
