  1. My Win 7 PC is dying so I'm going to purchase a new PC tomorrow. I'd like to transfer over my controller profiles and career stats. Can someone please tell me which files/Folders I need to backup/copy over? Thanks
  2. Got the T16000M. I really miss the FFB effects from my Sidewinder even though they only load about 30% of the time in IL-2. The stick seems alright and quite precise (except around the very centre due to spring tension) but I'm not used to it. I find the range of motion on the T16000M is much larger than that of the Sidewinder so my inputs have to be much coarser and it's taking some getting used to, especially the rudder twist in the handle. 15 years on a Sidewinder almost exclusively has ingrained the muscle memory pretty deeply.
  3. My X-55 still runs fine but I could never get programming to work. Whenever I started the software, the testing options would be greyed out and I'd see a message in the lower right saying "drivers not installed". I looked into it and apparently it is an issue with the drivers not having a proper signature and Windows refusing to recognize them. I read somewhere that I could download a program that would create an exemption for them but I couldn't be bothered as the stick and throttle work fine otherwise.
  4. You haven't witnessed how technically inept and generally lazy I am when it comes to mapping my controls and trying to figure out how to use things like SST or TARGET to program stuff.
  5. That was my plan but the store here only has the HOTAS kit with or without pedals. I think I'll pick it up and use the X55 throttle for Il-2 and try the Thrustmaster throttle for Elite and DCS.
  6. My Sidewinder 2 FFB is on its deathbed. Looking for a new HOTAS system. I have an X-55 Rhino. I like the throttle a lot but I hate the stick. I also have a CH Products stick and throttle but the joystick doesn't have a twisty stick (I can't use pedals) so it's of limited use. I was looking at picking up the T16000M but I'm a bit worried that the lack of rotaries/axes will make CEM a bit of a chore. Anyone have experience with the Thrustmaster? How well/poorly does it work with IL-2? Thanks.
  7. Very kind of you, sir. I'd love a copy of BoK.
  8. Good find! Works for me. I can actually hear hit sounds reliably now.
  9. I've tried giving them all possible commands for attacking as well as no commands as was recommended by one of the devs. It makes no difference. They don't attack. Ever.
  10. Friendly AI wingmen still never, ever attack ground targets. I've yet to see a single AI He-111 drop a single bomb in over 50 bombing missions.
  11. I still haven't seen IL-2s, Pe-2s, or He-111s drop bombs ever. I've seen the Sturmoviks strafe a few times, but never use bombs or rockets. I posted about this several times in the AI tech support section during successive patches but it never seems to get addressed.
  12. Brief description: Campaign Ch5, Flying a Bf-109 F-4 and ordered to intercept attack aircraft. Detailed description, conditions: I completed mission by shooting down 3 IL-2s. I took no damage and successfully returned to base after passing the RTB waypoint. I landed safely and taxied off of the runway. Issue: XP awards said I had no air victories and I received points only for take-off, mission complete, and sucessful landing ((30xp+60xp+30xp) *2 for expert mode) = 240 XP only. Bf-109 progress bar did not increase at all.
