  1. Ah-dammit... Elem is correct..the Wart Hog does not require rudder pedals....& the Saitek X52 Pro is a great choice also. As an engineer - esp mechanical - you will thrive in this game!! (My youngest lad is a Mech Engineer!) It's a great learning process guaranteed to keep you up nights! Keep in touch! ...John
  2. Welcome to one of the best forums on the internet! If you can afford the $$, the Thrustmaster Wart Hog HOTAS (Hands on Throttle & Stick) is unmatched for realism & performance (https://www.trustedreviews.com/reviews/thrustmaster-hotas-joystick-throttle) In this forum & this topic (New Players Start Here...), you'll find loads of info on getting into this hobby. It's amazing how folks help each other out. Check my posts (I joined in January) if you want to see some stupid questions & the patient /helpful responses from the members! But be warned...this hobby is more than addictive...& fun! Where are you located?
  3. Sturm... Here are the settings for Mouse Lookarounds. Try it out..you might like it.
  4. You can easily set up a mouse (Bluetooth or USB) for your look arounds...quite handy! A combination of Requiem's video and your game settings does the trick. Let us know if you have any problems!
  5. Another "lost rookie" question. Is there a reference/explanation article on playing with others (? MP ?MP Servers) Lots to learn
  6. Milo...Visited Ottawa's Canadian War Museum last fall..fantastic experience!! And it was warm! ...DocJMB Was in Alert with the 424 SQN last year..now that's cold:
  7. Wow..talk about lots to read/view! Thanx! How did you put the link in using one word (here)?
  8. Thanks to our Aussie friend who noted our frigid flying conditions....just pushed the snow blower through 12" of fresh stuff. And SShrike offers some of that well known and appreciated western hospitality! Canada Rules!!
  9. New member..from Trenton Ontario..home of RCAF 8 Wing - largest base in Canada - National Air Force Museum of Canada - take a look http://www.airforcemuseum.ca ...424 Tiger Search & Rescue Squadron ...Dad flew Tiger Moth after WW II Former Birds of Steel player on PS3 and War Thunder on PS4 - this forum absolutely trounces those run by Gaijin! Now to learn this game!
  10. Got it...sorry to be a bother! And found out that the trick to Reseting the View is to go to the Pilot Head Snap settings! Who would have guessed? Now to learn how to fly (& land) these beasts! Are there any in-game flying lessons/tutorials
  11. Thanks to all of your help, IL-2 BoS is installed & up & running...but now need help with Settings! Not sure whether to post here or in another forum but here goes. Using my mouse for View Lookarounds...took awhile to set up properly but now working great...in Cockpit view...but can't get External View Running a test flight --> Custom Set-up --> unable to get External View! Have searched these forums --> noted tips to locate " No External Views" settings --> unable to locate this --> same with "Allow Outside Camera" Screenshot of Custom settings screen below. Can anyone point me to a reference article/post that might help?
  12. Thanx Mabes... Lots of Disk Space Have installed & deleted & re-installed twice now..still the same. Did you note that the top line states that "Your Installation will not occur"? Hard to ignore!
  13. Need some help installing IL-2 BOS .exe file on my new Gaming PC Posted this yesterday in the Technical Issues Forum but have had no response. Hope I'm not breaking any rules by trying this forum for us rookies! Received a gifted Key to BOS (Thanks Tzigy) Downloaded .exe file to a USB stick from my Mac - game PC not built yet Received the PC - Installed the .exe file on the PC - ran the .exe file Near the end of the process, the attached message appeared IL-2 BOS appeared on the desktop but running it will not work - "Incomplete Installation" So I deleted the IL-2BOS program from my PC, downloaded the Install .exe file directly to my PC & tried again. Same result - program will not run - received attached message. Sent inquiry to Support but no answer yet. Would appreciate any advice! PS Downloaded War Thunder from their website with no problem Would really rather play IL-2!
