  1. Sounds very similar to the problem I was having with my WH throttle back in Mar/April. After advice from Sokol1, I checked out my engine management settings and found that 'cruise control' was selected. Apparently it's a form of throttle management, and was screwing up my manual throttle control. I went to Custom Mode and turned off 'cruise control', and the problem was solved. Hope your solution is as simple as mine was. Thanks again to Sokol1! Here's my thread from Mar 31: https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/44669-warthog-throttle-has-a-mind-of-its-own/?do=find
  2. It's looking very nice, even better when finished I'm sure. I like the way way you've recessed the WH throttle, and the loooong stick extension. (Nice pedals too!) How hard is it to get into and out of the cockpit though?
  3. Acer Predator X34P is IPS and 120 Hz, G-Sync, 4 ms response, 21:9 aspect, 3440x1440 UQHD. Price might be a problem though. Well over $1000 here in NZ.
  4. I second that. And kudos to you for a very interesting concept, very well executed. Some innovative shots and angles too.
  5. Can't deny that! And some beautiful pics of it.
  6. We all 'knew' about the Hurricane, but it's great to finally get the confirmation. I'll be getting all 3 as soon as they're available.
  7. 34", Acer X34P, curved ultra widescreen, 3440x1440, OC 120 fps. This is just about big enough, as I sit quite close to it. I think the bigger the better.
  8. Thank God you cleared that up! Thousands would have been tearing their hair out trying to figure that out. Actually, I empathize with you. Taught English for a few years in my youth, and ever since I can't help but notice any typo or grammatical error, no matter how minor, whatever I read. After years of practice, (and years of being accused of pedantry) I'm gradually learning not to react. On topic: Update looks fantastic, thanks Team! I really wish though, that I wasn't in the middle of a move, and that my cockpit wasn't packed away!
  9. So, .... it's good to know I'm not the only one who flies QM's against novices! Nice vid, thanks
  10. Amazing! I'm hoping that's a sign that things have finally changed, and not just an anomaly.
  11. Download speeds from Il2 store are notoriously slow, but should at least measure in megabytes rather than kb. In the past, I've managed to increase the speed just by restarting the download. Sometimes takes 2 or 3 restarts before it wakes up. I've also seen a recommendation from a member to go to Settings and check 'Prefer web distribution', though I've never tried that. It's well worth persevering! Good luck.
  12. I find the 'bicycle brake" style lever on the WH stick to be ideal for differential type wheel brakes as on the Yaks and Spits.
  13. Quite a good doc. Some beautiful sequences of surviving spits in flight, in widescreen. I watched it last week on YouTube.
  14. This is the first game I've ever bought (other sims I played years ago were either free or hacked) so I have no idea how expensive this sim is compared to current costs of other games. After spending thousands on my first ever gaming rig (I spent more on my computer/cockpit than I did on my car!), the comparatively small outlay for four battles and FC (and a couple of collector planes) seemed cheap.
