  1. Hi RavN_Sone, If I take just the launcher.exe from C:\Program Files (x86)\1C Game Studios\IL-2 Sturmovik Great Battles\bin\game, and move it into my steam installation directory of C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad\bin\game, I end up with the following error: Now, if I take the associated library files from C:\Program Files (x86)\1C Game Studios\IL-2 Sturmovik Great Battles\bin\game and again put them in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad\bin\game I get the following error: And looking deeper into that message, I just fixed it 😄 I went to \Data\updater\ folder and copied it to my steam installed directory. The launcher is working now with my steam installation. Thanks!!
  2. Hmmm.. How do I do that? I just downloaded the launcher from IL2 website and installed it, but now it's re-downloading the game. Checking settings, I don't see anywhere to point it to another location. Edit: took the launcher.exe as well as it's .dll files and put it in the same directory, but on my steam copy. Did not work Unless you are talking about Steam's ability to "add a non-steam game to your library" - in which case I wouldn't be able to utilize steam's servers for downloads.. But it would enable launching the launcher through steam. Cheers!
  3. The game, as downloaded by steam, doesn't appear to have a launcher. At least, from my looking around in what I think are the appropriate places, haven't been able to find one. Yup, I could do that if I downloaded the copy from IL2 website. But I wouldn't bother, as I don't care about Steam that much. It's just that initially I bought Battle of Stalingrad from Steam and so that's where it has remained. I've never bothered to convert myself to the non-steam version.
  4. Ok, that makes things pretty simple. Maybe I'll switch over to the non steam copy!
  5. Flying solo when there's 55 people on was a disaster for me. Couldn't seem to catch a break. But it was super cool to see such a heavily populated server!
  6. I forgot to mention I'm running via Steam.. Never have seen a launcher for IL-2.. I assume it's something similar to what we had for Rise of Flight? This will work, thank you. Still cumbersome though but not nearly as bad as restarting the game. I was hoping for something more along the lines of a -flag in the shortcut. Maybe something like below. Any ideas? "..\IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad\bin\game\Il-2.exe" -modson
  7. This is pretty cool. I might pick this up in the future. Just what my wife wanted me to start collecting - joystick grips!!
  8. Wondering if it's possible to have a MODS on Shortcut on the desktop alongside a normal launch shortcut for multiplayer. It gets annoying having to untick mods on in settings and restart any time you want to do one or the other.

    [MOD] Icons

    Just wanted to say thanks for these tweaks. When I'm playing solo, it's nice to be able to relax my eyes and just see things better without having all the default icon clutter. I'm using the black dot for everything version, and it's perfect. Much appreciated!
  10. Finished both sides of the mini campaign and I was enthralled with the whole thing. This was top notch stuff and really sets up a nice feel for Flying Circus. I have been a long standing RoF offline player and I'm now finding it rather difficult to go back to it after experiencing these missions. Hoping for more in the future!!
  11. I was never going to say anything, but I'm glad this thread popped up. I had this happen to me a few weeks back on a Thursday night. Just out of nowhere, D7 on my 6 blasting away. Sunday, had it happen again.. Anothet D7. I quit after that and went back to my RoF career thinking to myself "at least I can spot planes before I get immediately killed". I couldn't understand how I could be so utterly and completely blind online vs single player. But maybe this was the reason?
  12. For the time being, depending on what browser you're using, you should be able to right click the tab and mute it.
  13. Welcome back GCF! Glad to see you're well enough to jump back in here. 😄
  14. This happens to me all too often. But I keep flying MP when I can. I regret not getting into it at all in RoF, and now those days are mostly behind us. This is also me. I see them when it's too late to maneuver for an advantage. I've since lowered my resolution from 1440 to 1080 in hopes of mitigating this some. The other week I was flying with @JimTM and he was spotting all kinds of distant stuff I didn't have a clue about!
  15. I meant for the next update. @SeaW0lf I'm not comparing FC to RoF by any means. @US103_Talbot I was just hopeful for balloons in FC v1 is all.
