    Has anyone created a file that removes the g-meter in the lower-left-hand corner? Thanks.
  2. Hey, Patrick. Love your work. Have flown a handful of campaigns in Bodenplatte with the P-38. Have managed to down a handful of Me 262's. When I go to the debrief, though, the "Me 262 claim" is denied. Typically I get credited with a different aircraft (that I didn't kill), and my squadron mate gets credit for the jet (or sometimes, the Me262 kill goes unrecognized). It' not a big deal, but I'm just curious what I'm doing wrong. Thanks again for all your work.
  3. Regrettably, yes. I also apologize for hijacking the thread. I love flying the Lightning for all the points mentioned above. Was most looking forward to the Jug, though. I'm not knocking the developers, and I'm sure that many can bring out performance charts arguing how accurate the developers' representation is... but flying the Jug is like watching your high school crush make out with your best friend.
  4. Yep, (like Snails wrote) just carry on doing what you do. There's no better way to play BoBP than with your generator. Should our pilots receive the Purple Heart when they're wounded? Haven't seen an awarding of that, yet. Thanks again for all you do.
  5. Hey, Pat. Really enjoying your program. I suspect it's been asked previously, so pardon my intrusion. When deleting old missions should we delete all four of the file types *.eng *.list *.mission *.msnbin for each mission we choose to delete? Thanks.
  6. Ah, my mistake. Just thought they sounded cool -- didn't want to cause a fuss.
  7. Agree: The P-47 sounds are excellent. Any plans to make the mod/sounds available? Thanks.
  8. This new feature is excellent, and it functions as a terrific equalizer. The progression of fading colors, grey-out, tunnel vision, no vision and hearing loss is eerily similar to what I remember. My only minor item would be the time needed to recover from a “grey-out” in the game. Back in the day, it was not uncommon for us to pull an increasing load to the point where the colors faded. A quick bunt of the stick, though, was enough for a near-immediate return to full function. That said, it’s hard for me to gauge a “quick bunt of the stick” in my current swivel chair environment.
  9. Thanks for this. Makes the update near complete. cheers.
  10. Dear Friends, The IL-2 development team is glad to report that the new huge update 3.201 is released. It brings you not only the 3 new aircraft and 2 new maps for two projects, but also many improvements in all areas of the sim - graphics, physics, audio, controls, armament, and instruments. You can find the in depth information about some of the new features in our recent Dev Diaries. Please note that this update is the last milestone before the release of two projects at once - Bodenplatte and Flying Circus Vol.1 - which should happen in a month or so.

    Hey, Ptk -- love that you did this. Do you know a mod that removes all plane icons (including my plane's) from the map. Want to force myself to stop cheating and get lost. Thanks.

    Hey, Ptk -- I really like the "Other Planes Off" mod for the map. Any chance you'll re-introduce the "All Planes Off" mod? Thanks.
  13. Thirty years (has it really been that long?) ago (probably the same today), we would limit our transmissions because the broadcasts would be intercepted by our foes. At initial contact (visual or otherwise), we would call out clock codes (e.g., "bogeys right three o'clock five miles"). From what I've read of WWII biographies, radio discipline was encouraged because too much chatter would add to the din of battle and quickly overload pilots' ability to process. The repetition of call outs in the game is, for me, a bit disruptive. I'd prefer fewer, more qualitative broadcasts. I believe that would be more immersive but suspect that'd be difficult to implement.
  14. I'm encouraged that you wrote this, LizLemon -- How do we make novice into ace AI? I, too, am tired of seeing my squadron mates get beaten so regularly in career mode. Thanks.
