  1. What is the main difference between the Razorback and existing P47D in game? I think the latter is better at higher altitude but that is of little value in IL2. Other than visibility is the Razorback a better choice in multiplayer?
  2. I think you are correct - they were way overpowered before and one, well placed 1000kg bomb could nuke virtually an entire objective. That said, I would still like them to have some effect and for there to be a reason to take them over more, smaller bombs. On CB again tonight with F8 and found even 70kg bombs will destroy bunkers so carrying 4 of these plus two 250s = 6 bunkers destroyed. I would hope it would be better to hit say, a built-up area, with the 1000kg. Has anyone tested this?
  3. Hi all, Just finished a game on CB flying 190F8, mostly with 3 250kg bombs which I find generally effective. I decided to try out the 1000kg since it was available. I dropped it in the middle of a line of bunkers and killed,....one of them. As I pulled away the hit looked good, near enough in the middle and they all looked fresh and white as I dove in (no damage). I also used it against some buildings where it seemed to do better. On the whole I'd appreciate thoughts from the veteran ground pounders. What is your impression of bomb effectiveness since they were "nerfed". Thanks.
  4. Thanks lads. Can handle it much better now and shot down 3 in the first mission. I still find it hard to keep sights on the target though - it just wants to "swim" left and right a little.
  5. Even when I order my gunners to engage ground targets I never see them do so - is this disabled?
  6. Tried one of the new campaigns in a DR I. With throttle at about 60% was having to pitch the stick far forward to maintain level flight. Copped then that reducing throttle would bring the nose down which it did. Then got into fight with Camels. Turning is like riding a drunken monkey. It swings up and down, much worse to the left. I find it so hard to keep control. Rudder seems more important than in WWII AC. Those in the know please enlighten me.
  7. Online today for a few missions in the new campaign. Got shot down in P47 after dropping munitions and then went to take A20. Selected Burma skin, kicked with 4 min ban. Back in A20 again, kicked 4 min ban. What gives? I have 2/2 A20s.
  8. Hi all, I normally have between 100 and 120 fps. I have noticed sudden drops in combat which I thought was a function of the amount on-screen at once but realise now it is when I change view fast (with Track IR) or change my zoom. Is this common - it can go as low as 40 odd. Thanks.
  9. Just to add that I have been experiencing stuttering for the first time since this update (on MP). Only really noticeable when there is a lot of action e.g. last night I had several planes criss-cross on my screen with shooting, damage and particle effects. It suddenly went from 100 fps to a motion-capture experience and back again. I have tried limiting to 60fps but the problem remains. Edit: reading in this thread indicated that windows update had changed power consumption values - this proved to be the case for me and when I reset it to max performance there is a change and I have had no stutters in two games since. Will keep an eye and report back.
  10. Cheers Plurp, was online with you in the HS129 the other night. Semor, Thanks you snarky so and so 😛 I'm a busy man with lots to be doing, important, life changing things with,.....oh never mind. 3 pages it is so.
  11. Thank you so much for this Walter. I love the Duck (that sounds wrong) and have been playing it almost all of the time online where it can be difficult as fighter cover is rarely available and I spend more time trying to avoid getting shot down than attacking the tanks (which are hard to kill in the first place!). This will give some much needed experience and sounds like it has a fantastic atmosphere. I extracted it first in the root IL2 folder and the campaign folder appeared there. I didn't appear in game though and so I extracted it instead in the campaign folder and it seems to work fine although in the first mission I just seem to have the default skins. The briefing mentions selecting a particular skin but I don't see it. Advice? Thanks.
  12. HI all, Played the original IL2 when it first came out and am making a return to the game now with a newly built rig (Ryzen 5 2600X 3.6GHz, 16GB RAM, GTX 1080Ti) and having become comfortable with HOTAS and Track IR (where have you been all my life?) I am looking at optimisation for fps. I ignored this and just played to begin with and had a blast - I only noticed issues when zooming in when there would be a bit of a stutter. If you zoomed out and back in again this disappeared so a minor issue. I was surprised to see that fps were as low as 40 when the weather is bad and there is a lot going on. All of this is in career mode and ultra settings. When I am travelling to target I get between 70 and 80, 111 if I look straight up. I love the look of the ultra settings so essentially the question is what is the acceptable low fps limit to play this game with? Should I sacrifice graphics for higher fps? If so where to start? Also does multiplayer tend to have higher or lower fps than single player? Thanks in advance to any who offer advice/experiences.
