  1. I have read many people's helpful advise, But to me there is something missing, and I will do my best to explain this my friend. The first thing you need to sit down and work out is "why are you playing this game" What I mean is what made you decide to play this game, of all the games available? For many of us here it is a deep interest in aviation and in particular ww2 aviation. There is no point to me coming up with your possible reasons, this is something only you can do. Some advise to help you if you chose to continue: The first lesson is to love the plane that yo
  2. Good afternoon fellow il2 pilots I know that this no doubt has been done to death on various threads, but my reason for asking the question is to confirm what I've heard (but can't find any sources for) Which is that: When the early Spitfires without the special fix flew in neg G's did the engine regularly cut out (actually stop), either from fuel starvation and/or flooding (when the aircraft went positive G after a neg G maneuver), or did they just give a little cough and then start running normally? And also that if the engine did actually stop while in flight, that the propel
  3. Who flies above 6000m?? Def.... not.... me....
  4. Is BOS harder than the original il2 series? I can only speak for myself because I don't know what your skill level is. I found crossing over at first to be very frustrating mainly because of my skill level, but I ultimately found it to be rewarding. When the current series was released the first aircraft that was released was Russian, and so required prop pitch adjustments to even take off (which didn't occur to me at first....) didn't help because of my skill level. The other 2 issues that I found were: In the old series I flew in external pit which this game doesn't have.
  5. I'm usually just happy that I hit them, I don't question how it happened
  6. In all honesty I think the OP should have stated why they want to disable blackouts. I know that the topic of Blackouts has been discussed at length and I lost interest in following it, but perhaps the OP is trying to revive the topic? The 2 camps are: Everything is modeled correctly It is not modeled correctly.
  7. Greetings from down under! Your PC spec is superior to mine with the exception that I run 16GB of RAM (DDR3) When trying to decide if you want to go the path of more ram now (which my non-expert opinion says will help), or to go big now, depends on numerous things that only you can answer. The best scenario is if you know someone who is willing to lend you 16GB of ram (that way you are using the same ram type etc) and see what results that yield. And from there you can go on to decide. In regards to the current il2 series: I personally play only QMB and occasionally MP and o
  8. Greetings gents (and ladies of course), Before getting to my boring storing, I'm not sure how many of you heard the news a while back that: 303_kwiatek passed away. I remember seeing the name in the old il2 series, and seeing his contributions in the many discussions here on the forum. I only bring it up on here, because many of the old hands may remember the name, and may be recent additions to the il2 box family Now for my boring story, my brother got me into the old il2 series (I started out when it was il2-1946), I only played online where my name was like it still is "novic
  9. I'd be more interested in a F-4/Z (GM-1 Nitrous Oxide boost) After all apparently 544 of them were made of the 1841 BF109 F-4's that were manufactured
  10. Good afternoon Gents (and ladies of course!) Today I tried to pre-purchase il2 BON and the Hurricane, but when I tried to pay I got: Your payment could not be processed. Please contact customer support for further assistance. Thinking that maybe I didn't factor in some unseen currency conversion charge, I selected just "BON" and was again given the above 😞 I use a re-loadable VISA card which hasn't had any issues in the past Does anyone know if the the payment site down atm?
  11. I tried to, wouldn't accept payment :-(
  12. Along with what other people have said already, The greatest fighter pilot of all time viewed dog fighting as wasteful (knowing the maneuvers is important and definitely not wasteful) Yes it gives more feelings of a true battle of skill etc But unless you have no choice and you know that it is unlikely that your enemy will call/ get help, it is better to separate from your enemy. Yes we don't really die when we get shot down / black out and crash etc But discipline and patience are as valuable as skill My most memorable air combat of either series was in the old 1946 a nu
  13. My own concerns about physiology are similar to what most people have written, and perhaps my question (that has probably been asked before, but I haven't seen it yet) is more whether the pilot seating position in the 109 and 190 (from memory) being designed to help with G loads during combat has been factored in to give some G tolerance or not. Junkers did some testing during the war and the results (according to the all knowing and unfaultable wiki, a.k.a take with a grain of salt) are: "Extensive tests were carried out by the Junkers works at their Dessau plant. It was discovered th
