  1. No, they arent enjoyable as long as the AI behaves like it behaves. Compare to Sturmo 46 WoFF F4 BMS Absolutely not competitive in any way to these much older flightsims. But when i want to enjoy nice graphics, i start BoX for sure. And that makes me sad as there is so much potential.
  2. Simply accept that IL2 BOx is mainly an MP flight sim, because the SP is close to unplayable due to missing interaction possibilities with the AI and due to their general behaviour. Its a very good sim of the aircraft from a technical point of view, of course. But singleplayer im back to IL2 1946 with B.A.T and hundreds of hand written campaigns and missions and a much more believable AI and interaction possibilities...
  3. No, you cant win as a german. But the war is ongoing everytime in the background with flights and fights on both sides, and they differ everytime you play a campaign. You are only a small pilot in this big war. You can suddenly be in a dogfight of AI vs AI while you fly your patrol. Next time, it does not happen. If you shoot down enemy pilots, even famous pilots, they will never appear again in this war. You are active in SimHQ too, right? You know exactly what i mean, or not?
  4. The Falcon 4 campaign is special in that way: There are two parties in an ongoing war against each other. You can let them play alone and just watch. You can change targets and plans to take influence - but not necessarily - so here its a kind of real time strategy game (strategic level) And you can everytime jump into each aircraft and fly a sortie - here it is the well known simulator. But each mission you fly is only a small stone in the wall. (tactical level) You can interrupt logistics, defence and so on. Which helps then in the next missions. If you transfer this to Sturmovik - would be great in my opinion. A war between Russia and Germany and i can take influence on a strategic level. There should be logistics, production, supplies etc. And you could jump into any flight and take influence on the tactical level. That means both sides could win, depending on how good your influence is (on strategic and tactical level) This would be a real dynamic campaign. Edit: IL2 with its career is not dynamic - but it has at least some life in it. DCS in the opposite is a complete desaster regarding immersion and campaign. The map is dead. Every movement of a unit must be scripted. Every mission and every campaign must be scripted. Its a nice high level technical simulation of aircraft - but without a game in it. By the way: Wings over Flanders Fields has an ongoing war in the background - you can participate as a pilot (but not influence on strategical level)
  5. Yes, thats the point. I have a small deadzone in all 3 axis, so when my view is in a certain position, it "snaps" a little bit to this position. Just a little bit, because not with every fart in my office chair, the camera moves. (only when experiencing heavy ones...) Helps me to keep the crosshair where i want it to have.
  6. 1 Thrustmaster Warthog Grip on a Virpil WarBRD Base. Smooth but still re-centring, perfect precision (Weapons, Flaps, Tailwheel) 2 Thrustmaster Throttle with a Ministick Modification (Engine Thrust, Starting, "Autopilot", lights, Airbrakes etc) 3 Saitek throttle Quadrant (Radiators, Mixture, RPMs) 4 Saitek Trim Wheel (Elevator Trim) + Ipad with Custom Panel App (Lights, Different Radiators from different Machines, Canopy, Map etc)
  7. When we all owned 386er PCs with 30 Mhz and 2 MB Ram - then yes, playing music was a problem when playing European Air War. But with 8x 3.6 Ghz, 32 Gigs of ram and SSDs...hmmmm..let me think.....no, no effect on your fps.
  8. A busy internet has no effect on the performance of your PC.
  9. In the real wars of this world, the unexperienced pilots lost nearly all fights against more experienced pilots. In our gaming world, its the same: There are people that have hardly any other content in life than one specific game (e.g. IL2...but is valid for any other computer game CS, COD, Warcraft and so on...) and they spend hundreds if not thousands of hours in this game. On the other side, there are people seeing it as a hobby, playing many different games, simulators, modelbuilding, making music and so on...they will never reach the same level. It is simple as that. I can understand your frustration. My recommendation: Stay offline for a while, play with helpful tools (labels, unlimited ammo etc) and simply enjoy flying and shooting. Can be more satisfying than a highly set target ("compete with the online guys").
  10. Yes, its possible in Multiplayer. I tried several times, different servers, different fractions and aircraft, but was kicked out every single time by the pilot, without giving a reason besides "sorry". There must be something in the air that the people dont like human gunners in their aircraft...
  11. Hello all, i would like to join your community on the server. Im not very experienced with online flight simulation so far. Can i simply register my Nickname on your website and the server recognizes me then when i join? (of course must be the same name)? Can you confirm? Thanks, Jan
  12. Can i somehow choose what aircraft is presented in the main menu with the circling camera?
