  1. Hey, I appreciate the heads-up. Have been wanting to see how bad the Star-Wars version of WWII combat *really* is; if it's free, I'm TOTALLY gonna watch it right now (as much as I can stand, at least). Two random war movie suggestions that are likely streaming for free right now, and are great films: 1] Attack! (Lee Marvin, Jack Palance, Eddie Albert, Buddy Ebsen), and 2] Paths of Glory (was free recently, at least, on Roku channel or somewhere similar). Aww, c'mon......don't be so salty. As long as it doesn't have Rock Hudson running around shirtless with young Yugo
  2. Col. Fred Cherry (USAF, POW) Lt. Jesse Brown (USN?) Gen. Frank Petersen (USMC) Would all be good ones to look into (for international Il-2-fans; probably translated into several languages by now) for BHM. Also, I'll second the need for a green/blue/pink/whatever pilot skin based on Spurgeon Ellington as long as it has that mustache... Hehehe...pretty smooth; Clark Gable would be jealous of that stache!
  3. Correction -- best US war (i.e., anti-war) movie ever.... Arguably best Kubrick, too. Tight & to the point. And K. Doug hamming it up with George Macready? That's about as good as it gets. God bless him; he was a true Hollywood icon & will be missed. Makes me feel that I may make it to 50 if he made it to 100+
  4. I'm glad to hear that.... After idly fooling around in career & QMB for like a year, made my first couple of forays into multiplayer a couple weeks ago. Was having a blast, navigating by RRR, head on a swivel.....found the target, made too many passes.... heart's racing, heading for home at balls to the wall & rads closed (for god's sake, at least get over friendly lines & have a chance to belly in!!!) And then out of the blue -- ping-pow-bing-BOOM! from my high 6:00;!! From what I learned after I hit the ground, was some guy named after a man-portable outdoor
  5. I'll take a C-6 anytime. I don't recall there being a solid-nose 88 in a sim ever (not counting mods)? That 88, plus the 410, Typhoon, and possibility of a flyable Marauder really cheered my heart & took away my hesitation over buying BoBP. I don't need to win/survive all the time to have fun; outdated Ju 88 sounds fun as hell!!
  6. Meh....I'd trade a 109 G-6 for the 47, just on general principle, really. Doubt I'd ever play much with a Skytrain, but would be nice to have a twin wasp modeled in the game, for future purposes. Sacrifice-wise, though?....I'd rip the still-beating hearts out of the G-6 and the 234, smear their warm oil all over my chest and face, and do whatever dance is needed to curry the favor of the developers & convince them to do a Do 217 instead. And I might do things to a poor, innocent little Do 217-- in exchange for a flyable B-26 -- that I can't even mention in a public forum.
  7. Now, wait just a gosh-darn minute....I hadn't looked at the forum for awhile & I see this all of a sudden? I'm far too stupid to use the mission editor, so does it merely mean "neutral country" now includes Japan? Or does it imply "JAPAN" & all my dreams come true for the next edition? Y.G.B.S.M.?
  8. If I saved a copy of the updates folder before deleting the contents, would I be able to restore my graphics & camera settings from that? I think I have the update working now, but seem to have lost those settings in all the confused monkeying-around....if anyone could inform, would be dearly appreciated. I'm not good with this sort of thing and have never had an issue with an update before.
  9. Not someone who posts often here, but always read the forum when bored (SP only for me, will buy BP when I can get away with it ) so can't resist putting in my 2 cents: 1) Mosquito? Heck yeah, would spring for that. No question. 2) I would be quite fine with historically effective rockets (that is, less accurate and not very deadly on a shot-by-shot basis) IF I was attacking historically reasonable armoured columns (i.e, not 85% tanks). If it's a game engine limitation, I totally get that...everybody wants to kill some armor and we can't have a whole division on the roa
  10. Hey bud! Don't know ya and haven't helped you one bit, but I always check up on the forum every few days; frankly I like your enthusiasm, and you've sparked/kept going quite a few threads! I'm not at all the type to have an internet presence, but (reluctantly) signed up for this forum because I needed to get a new computer & wanted specifically to be able to play this game...many people were surprisingly helpful & friendly with that. I have a feeling that maybe a few of them are also (quite understandably) on your down-check list. Really, don't let it harden you
  11. Well... sorry, but I can't resist! Single-player type of guy here; not a forum poster, but I do always check what's going on here, as it's fun to read & often informative... I don't have a "virtual cockpit", just a chair & a computer and such. But have spent dozens, if not hundreds, of hours with a gatorade bottle at my side after surgeries while playing the legacy IL-2, and will probably be doing the same this summer now that I have BOS (take care of yourselves guys, stents suck!) Anyways; my 2 cents, and to the point of the thread: 1) Have personall
  12. Hopefully we can still get Premier Kissoff on the hot-line if we need to....
  13. Man, I clearly need to get BOBP just for the T'bolt. Sounds like fun! (I've always loved -47s/-84s/-105s & sounds like they got the groundhog effect going accurately 😀)
  14. Normally this: BUT if that target has landed a snap shot on me, I'll chase him "...on both sides of land, and over all sides of earth, till he spouts black blood and rolls fin out." It always drives me nuts to let an AI get away after it's landed a blow (can usually get away with it, but am sure multiplayer would require a change of temperament)
  15. Ah, my fault. Still new to the whole forum thing -- I see it now. Anyways, really really like the S. Pacific, and figured I'd chime in where I saw an opportunity. In any case I still need to catch up with what I have, not to mention Kuban (and I believe your Havoc campaign?) & BOBP too! Didn't mean to be beating a dead horse; I'll be happy to take whatever the developers decide to come up with, no doubt! --Cheers
