  1. i never touched the fuse settings before , always left as default . how should they be set for skip bombing ? contact or 1-15 secs?
  2. TAC VIEW I installed the software which helps with the recorder analysis but nothing to improve close range object visibility in game which is my issue . Dud 500 kg Bombs Today I did 4 bomb runs on the destroyers at the allied destroyer port in the Crimea map and all did not blow up , all recorded , attached is an image of proof that is self explanatory .Why is this happening ? Further the first destroyer to the left of the screen is submerged in water like its half scuttled , is this intentional ? this one too wont sink . On the Antwerp map once in a while a direct hit on the cargo vessel hulls dont explode and thats correct since there were many duds during the war but not always .
  3. INVISIBLE PLANES I have been stating the same time and time again but no one has reacted . Really glad to read others are experiencing the same issue . Every time i respond to an attack i first wait to see the tracer or bombs exploding before moving into position hopefully to see some object appearing but many times nothing appears post bombing or strafing . the only sign that they are around is the defensive AAA and heavy machine guns or tracer . I also cannot see them as they arrive for the attack when at low level below 500 mt . I really hope this serious issue can be corrected in the near future .
  4. RED KESTREL So if i understand correctly you get a 100% bonus when your fair play is 100% , target destroyed and landed at base .
  5. i am getting the bonus of 100% while fair play is 100% for a similar mission where i get just the flight time bonus less fair play difference index . so just to compare 430 against 209 for the same mission objectives . that's what i do'nt understand . Is my fairplay index reduced due to the disconnects ?
  6. bonus 100 % awards When and why are bonuses of 100% given for a kill ?
  7. RED KESTREL Please take a look at my sorties log and you will see 3 disco's in 3 days . Each time it was the server freezing in game usually half way through the mission . Hope this does not continue since its a real nuisance example going back to base with confirmed hits and still alive . Hope its just temporary internet stuff . I asked my provider AIS if they have a more powerful connection for Thailand but they said what i have is the maximum for now , 50mbps .
  8. RED KESTREL In the dogfight folder i have 13 folders under the title Alonzo . Do i delete them all ? my internet is wired straight from router to pc 50 cm away . the only other electronic gadgets on are 2 phones and a tablet sometimes . I just hope its a glitch of the moment .
  9. loading files freeze and server disconnecting in flight : Last couple of days i am having issues with both , do i ignore or is there anything i can do from my end ?
  10. Bodenplatte AI planes Have the missing AI planes issue been fixed ?
  11. RED KESTRELL Hello I live in Thailand , Bangkok city . My IPS provider is AIS which is a good company . My router is right next to my gamer pc , the connection to PC is by wire . Everybody here is saying the same thing that i need to go talk to AIS and see what they can suggest . On google i see there is talk off more " powerful" routers but apparently very expensive which i would have to pay for and anyway that wont change anything if the signal is the same in IMO . This has started to happen only in the last month or so and i wonder if its not caused by a spike in use due to the Virus and people using online for everything . Until then i'll have to cross my fingers every time i play at Combat box .Thanks for your valuable comments
  12. Recently i am experiencing high ping with combat box server , the others are fine . I checked google for the usual tips but no improvement , can someone please explain what causes this and how to reduce the ping when its above 300 ?
  13. ZOOM Are we allowed to use a moded zoom to improve on the default ? if so which is recommended one taking into consideration all the recent patches ?
  14. Bodenplatte Hurtgen In my opinion you need to look at the existing Timer , attack area and attack MCU's of these missions i mention above and maybe adjust the WP's a little , its only tweaking . you don't need to set objectives of how many are destroyed MCU's before breaking off and returning to base . You need to learn the set up for the Force complete MCU , this is very important because its the signal together with the Timer MCU to end their mission and go back . I learnt all that from JIM TM who is available on the forum long ago when i bought my first copy of Stalingrad . I have'nt come across the Yak 9 's in Red October , because i dont have them yet , too early , but i have engaged the PE's , moving and static ships . Finally try the above missions i mention and see for yourself wether what i state is correct , i am not seeing any comments from other players which does'nt help us at all . We need constructive criticism and comments like we see in other IL2 server forums in this website .
  15. today i tried to get a bit closer at Lommel under attack from 3 planes i think one was an P38 and i chased and lost it in between trees over a river i was maybe 150mt away same level not more than 100mt height , i was faster in my FW since i came down and was just tracking him before shooting and then it disappears . its happening all the time , i see the bombs , strafing , tracer and just try to spot from 500mt away usually 1000mt high but i see nothing . is there anything i can do to my rig ? i have a 32 curved high res monitor , my nvidia is the 1060 model , i should see very clearly small moving objects below but i dont . Any sugestions would be appreciated .
