  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=findComment&comment=750705
  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.
  15. Shady? If the release is, in fact, being timed to coincide with the end of the sale (which is only a theory after all), then I would call that good business practice.
  16. Thanks Yogi, something else I've learnt. I was doing it between missions.
  17. I'm glad you mentioned the vid, as I had somehow missed noticing it. Of course I went back and tracked it down. Fantastic! I've been looking forward to the Tempest, even more than the Mustang, so it's really good to finally see it in action. I'm with you regarding the audio. It's a pity we never got to properly hear the engine sound, as it was masked by the muzak, but the video is otherwise outstanding. Anticipation is building....
  18. And the Springboks are the favorite foe I love to watch, and fear.
  19. I do sit slightly further back for a movie, but still close enough for 'big screen' effect, so the curve is still good. If watching with a group of others, and sitting back even further, the curve may be less advantageous, but I don't think it would be an issue.
  20. Yes, could be the moment of truth for some of our systems. Will I need an upgrade, or will I maybe need to compromise graphic settings? I hope my system will be good enough, with maybe a frame rate hit. Bring it on!
  21. I sit pretty close to my 34" curved monitor, and the curve is perfect to keep the outer edges and the center of the screen equidistant. Really adds to immersion. I recommend curved, and at least 32"
  22. Another member here who's getting a bit excited . Unfortunately, my gaming computer is packed away in preparation for a move, and I'm not yet sure where I'm moving to! Hopefully, my cockpit will be set up again by the time any teething problems are just about sorted. Congrats and salutations to our incredible dev teams.
  23. Very impressive creation, looks fantastic. Well worth the effort.
