  1. My main monitor for il-2 is an AOC 32 inch 4K(quite cheap in fact). This title screams for more though!
  2. It is not that I wanted to trash AMD, but AMD driver issues??... That seems to be written all over the internet... AMD drivers reportedly have even more problems than nvidia. Maybe today that is different... Dunno!? That is indeed no proof, may be... Fake News? . Personally I always got nvidia and am quite happy with the drivers but that of course is also no proof of anything :-) About CUDA... I need it for some scientific software. Not for games. Ray tracing not needing an RTX 2080 ti... Indeed no if you are prepared for a Serious drop in framerate. The next nvidia generation will probably mean tuning on RTX will be a non issue!!!?
  3. Imho If you want ray tracing in 2019 then the RTX 2080 Ti is the only True option because of the heavy hit on system resources. But AMD still seems to have a real problem with drivers the last time I checked. AMD does not support CUDA either, thus not only RT. All depends, but indeed for il-2 or DCS nvidia is not necessary afaik.
  4. Yes, WT is great as well for MP , but SP and creating your own coop missions with 60 planes at your disposal to make it different each time? Only DCS can compete here! This does not mean to troll WT, but each sim has strengths and weaknesses. I don't really fancy the business model of WT, makes me think too much of a money grab whereas I look at il-2 and DCS modules as... a True investment!!!!?
  5. ED is going to introduce a separate product called MAC. They too are trying to make flight sims more accessible. Fortunately il-2 is already more down to Earth if one adapts the settings, uses autopilot etc. MAC will most probably not compete with il-2 because it depicts another era. If it were not for the Russian dev teams there would not be any true flight sims by now!
  6. IMHO that Ryzen 3900 will be ... backorder for about a year ! 🙂 65W and 12c:24t ... who would have believed that 1 year ago ... surely not Intel ... and any of its users (that includes me) !? What I would like even more is the (2020upcoming ?) 7nm version of the RTX 2080 Ti ! GPU is so much more important for gaming and even the 3700X will be (nearly) enough to feed that 2080 Ti. Would not call all this really "Exciting" because it has been 10 years without any company boosting true CPU speed innovation ... being intel or amd. There is so much catch up to do and even in 2019 I would think any Intel Core i7 2015 CPU is still OK if combined with any high end Nvidia RTX GPU. IMHO in fact ... no need to buy a new CPU at all ... yet.
  7. @77.CountZero I guess you are on to something ... my PC is low end ... Core i3 ... most probably it won't get through the startup and login in time !? Sure am now into buying a new powerfull PC (especially also for DCS ... which is much more demanding still!). Maybe that is the case ... low on PC resources, dunno. Thanks, Stefaan
  8. Thanks again 77.CountZero. Indeed, sometimes it does login from first try (no additional mouse click needed). However, 9 times out of 10 I need to click on the login button again. I never run any other app together with IL-2 GB, so that can't/should not be it I guess. Strange that 1C dyd not address this issue or at least let us know why and how this happens (and narrow down why not everyone has this issue!?). Regards, Stefaan
  9. OK, thanks 77.CountZero !!! That "clicking-one-more" indeed works fine, but I am/was afraid that later on even that might no longer work !? Regards, Stefaan
  10. @HappyHaddock and others having these issues (?) ... FWIW ... the response I got yesterday from the IL-2 Support team, and I quote ... "Dear user, Server failure has not been detected Before authorizing: - check the settings of the Security (antivirus, firewall, UAC ...) Make sure that they are not blocking the exchange of data with the server - make sure that the update is successfully completed - make sure you have Administrator privileges for your Windows account - make all the game ports in the exceptions your router and security tools Authorization requires ports 80 and 443. Multiplayer mode uses TCP – 28000, UDP – 28000, Downloader Port (TCP) – 28100. - try to use direct cable connection to PC - perhaps it makes sense to update the router firmware Also try to re-download the installer from your profile and do a complete reinstall of the game." Further : In the IL-2 Launcher FAQ (at this Website) : "Before you start Remember that the game uses certain ports Setup or turn off your security software (antivirus, brandmauer, UAC, SmartScreen, etc.) Make sure that you're logged into Windows as Administrator Open context menu by a right click on game's icon, go to Compatibility settings and choose to Run as Administrator In case if none of these recommendations helps, please, re-install the game and place it into a folder with shorter path, for instance, "C:\Games\IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad". " Hope this helps others with similar issues !? (YMMV, but in my case this did not work) I would think that you too might report this issue to Support and then please report back here !? Kind regards, Stefaan
  11. Don't know wether your issue is somehow related to mine, but I get problems after 3.102 and 3.102b versions when I try to start IL-2 GB. I can't get immediate connection to the Authorization Server anymore (have to try again as soon as I get the error meassage ... can't connect and then it connects as before). Only then I am get online connection (otherwise I can only play offline). My guess is that 1C should better restart their "Authentication/authorization Server" because it is somehow in a kind of "slowdows/contention modus" !???? Hope you get your issue solved ! Regards, Stefaan
  12. Thank you all again ! I am going to compare the new startup.cfg with the one I saved before update to version 3.201 as soon as I get home ! I will report back then. I am pretty sure my issue (may be different for others) is somehow related to the update to 3.201. I never had this issue (and related error screen) before 3.201 and it *immediately* stared after the update (would otherwise be quite a coincidence). Never changed anything to the IP, router settings or whatever in between. I checked the Firewall, restarted the (cable) Modem, Router, a.o. did not fix this issue. [I sure hope this issue will not worsen and might one day lock me/us out completely from the Authentication server !?] Kind regards, Stefaan
  13. Hi, Sorry to reply to my own post, but I got feedback from Support. In my case (! YMMV) running the Launcher as Admin can solve this issue, but not always ... really strange. Maybe my PC is not able to load everything fast enough (only 8GB RAM, SSD) ??? Anyway, the response from IL-2 Support team, and I quote ... "Dear user, Server failure has not been detected Before authorizing: - check the settings of the Security (antivirus, firewall, UAC ...)

  14. @Sokol1. Nice video and planes ! It all depends what you want from a sim/game. If only truly simulating then FSX, OP3D, MS Flight Sim and yes ... DCS WWII is fine. Planes are very true-to-life. But for me the whole atmosphere (war environment, immersion ...) completes this experience. DCS is OK (not prefect though), but IL-2 GB and CloD are much better in this. To me even simple arcade games like the Novalogic Comanche and Armored Fist series were, IMHO, awesome because of this (war) immersion factor. But if one want to be a real and only (commercial) 'pilot' then Microsoft Flight Simulator will be hard to beat. Regards, Stefaan
  15. "Don’t reinstall your game to fix it. I did that, and it had no effect." Thank You all ! I was about to re-install the game indeed (second time after the previous update fiasco). But now I know it won't help me. I also now know this has been an issue for ... at least a year !? Hopefully the Devs will, one fine day, come up with different way (adapt workflow Authorization Server?) that solves this issue. I found other references to the "No coonection to authorization server" problem, but it seems in those cases it was a matter of a firewall blocking connections. In my case the login process worked fine before v 3.201. I can still login if I try once more ... is it the wait on connection taking too long here, dunno !? Thanks again, Stefaan
