    Symbolic link

    How to create a symbolic link, in windows 10, so that you can use your "Rise of flight" skins in "Flying Circus" without using up any extra drive space.I chose to do each aircraft separately as they are released.Before commencing make a backup of the original skins. In my IL2 skins folder I renamed mine "FokkerDr1 original" etc1) Type in Command Prompt in the bottom search bar.2) When the command prompt pops up, right click on it, so that you can run it as an administrator3) Click yes on the windows pop up and your command prompt window will pop up.I have my IL2 stored on my "C" driveeg - C:\Program Files (x86)\1C Game Studios\IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Moscow\data\graphics\skinsand my RoF skins stored on my "H" driveeg - H:\Program Files (x86)\Rise of Flight\data\graphics\skinsThis means I want to place a shortcut (symbolic link) in my IL2 folder directing to the RoF folder4) You will need to type the following information into the command prompt window.mklink /d (this is the command for the symbolic link that we require)the location of the IL2 skins folder (eg C:\Program Files (x86)\1C Game Studios\IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Moscow\data\graphics\skins)the location of the RoF folder (eg H:\Program Files (x86)\Rise of Flight\data\graphics\skins)This means, for me, I would need to type the following, to create a FokkerDr1 symbolic link in my IL2 folder.mklink /d "C:\Program Files (x86)\1C Game Studios\IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Moscow\data\graphics\skins\FokkerDr1" "H:\Program Files (x86)\Rise of Flight\data\graphics\skins\FokkerDr1"Please note the quotation marks at the start and end on both addresses. This is because of the spaces in the address. Without them the command prompt will give you a syntax error.Hope this helps

    ROF Promo Codes

    Is it because the people who bought RoF items more than 5 years ago paid more than those than bought them within the last 5 years? Just a thought. I may be wrong

    FC early access in VR

    Tried both the Spad and DR1 in VR today and what can I say.......but wow It was as good as I had hoped and expected. I think a lot of things have been shared from the WW2 stuff for now though. Not just the maps and AA guns but the tracers and hit flashes too. I find it is a lot easier to see where the bullets are landing in FC compared to RoF. Whether that is because of it being in 3D or because of the hit flashes, I’m not sure. I’m very much Looking forward to more WW1 content being added, especially the SE5

    What chairs do you use with pedals?

    I use a chair that stands on rails either side. They are a little wider than my MFGs and can slide forward and tucked away when not in use.

    Arma 4 comfirmed!

    Don't get me wrong but...... "Rising Storm Vietnam" is a good game but it is a bit too much "Call of Duty" for my liking My squad had been having loads of fun recently playing the "Faces of War" (ww2) mod for ARMA3.

    32 buttons "button box"

    I made this using the inside of an old Logitek joystick and a selection of different switches. The housing was a clear pencil tray that I painted from the inside.

    Why you are still not in VR?

    I sometimes use the HTC Vive, and flying in VR is undoubtedly awesome. But, I would never say that I would never go back to a 2D monitor. They both give very different experiences. I find it a lot more casual when flying whilst using a 2D monitor and chatting online etc. If I were a single player flyer, I think that I would probably use the Vive more then. When I fly multiplayer in VR, I tend to "wing up" with other squad mates that are using VR. I guess it's because we will be sharing the same experiences, spotting, IDing etc.
