  1. Did you try Paypal? I recently purchased BoM with a promo code and used paypal, you may see a small international transaction fee on your bank account, i beleive the fee for me was 0.75 USD.
  2. Found them. Thanks. Silly me looking for them under "Sound" in the settings menu. Its nice to see the yelling german man from the earlier il2 games is still getting work
  3. It would be nice to be able to turn down the npc voices in game. The yelling german man especially sounds like a meth crazed lunatic, and while i appreciate that being historically accurate, i would just like to be able to control npc voice volume seperately. Its especially jarring imo on the bom german careers. Thank you
  4. You guys actually got me curious enough about the Mig 3 that i think i will give it a spin.
  5. First that came to mind were Skyrim and X3TC. Popping into the Boron home system for the first time was magical, in large part due to the music. Elite Dangerous also has a good soundtrack, not so much for standalone listening, but with the way its synced with the gameplay really deepens the atmosphere of the game. Speaking of skyrim, bethesda games are 60-70 percent off on steam right now.
  6. I might try the yak, iirc i had a brief intereest in the i-16 but i never really got the hang of the engine managment. The p47 is on my list.
  7. I start out to try to learn new aircraft against new adversaries, get the bindings down do the homework etc and by the end of the play session, im in a 109, usually the f series, with the windows shot out, trailing black smoke, trying to pick off one more yak, before sneaking across the border with whats left of my engine and bailing out. I have been doing that since the very first il2. I think i need a new routine. Im swearing off the 109 till i at least finish a spit career.
  8. While i dont care either way about clickable pits, I would very much like to see per plane control assignments.
  9. I dont see the point of that feature in il2, except in those ww2 circa aircraft that were equipped with mice.
  10. Normal is green check boxes? Because there are only green boxes, red boxes and boxes with no color code. The preset buttons otoh are green for normal and orange for expert. There are no boxes with orange outlines. So since there are no boxes with orange outlines, there are no options selected with expert?
  11. Im having trouble noticing a difference. Is there a list somewhere of options turned on in expert mode in single player? Thanks
  12. Havent played in a year, quit in disgust at the poor performance and unstable frame rate, but i got a new joy stick and in the interest of putting it through its paces fired up il2. I have the same hardware and iirc it didnt matter what graphical settings i used before, there was always stutter and lag. Today, with the new stick and conservative settings, its running pretty smooth. What happened? EDIT: also, is there somewhere on the forum i could find an update history? Seems to be a lot of new stuff and i dont want to miss anything.
  13. I have read it all and tried it all. Its the only game i can run on medium graphics settings at 1600x1050 at 150 fps (fast vsync) and still get stutters. I have a gforce 1060 an i7 8700 and 16 gigs of ram an a good chunk of a 125 gb ssd is devoted to il2 and it still doesnt run as smoothly as i would expect a modern game to. I spend more time trying to tweak the damn thing into running acceptably that i do actually playing the game, so im somewhat averse to even starting it up and certainly dont want to spend anymore time tweaking it.
  14. If that were true i wouldnt be able to run Elite Dangerous at 2560x1440 on ultra with exactly the same hardware including trackir at a rock steady 60fps smooth as glass and i start up il2 and get stutters everywhere. I actually suspect this is the same game engine as the original il2, one of its hallmarks was that no matter what hardware you threw at it, it never ran smoothly.
