    Introducing the VPC MongoosT-50 Throttle

    That's strange, I have never waited for a support response longer than 2 days. Did you submit via the web site, or via the email address?

    Old School WWI

    Came across this while cleaning up some stuff. From 1983.
  3. Coconut has to start new campaigns on both expert and normal. The current "tours" end on the last day of the month.
  4. It may be now, but there was time, not too far back when windowed mode was suggested by one of the devs (Jason?). Don't recall the particulars but it was after one of the larger updates.

    Disableing native radio chatter

    In the audio folder rename the "radio" folder "-radio". Only gets recreated when the game gets an update.

    OCD - old, crabby, and dangerous!

    That's the way to start my day, with a good, hearty laugh! But you did make a good point.

    OCD - old, crabby, and dangerous!

    Two out of three isn't bad. I'm not dangerous, but I am old and crabby. Went out of town last Tuesday, got back on Thursday, and the trouble begins. Started up the PC only to be greeted by one of those "Your system is f***ing broke" messages. Tried a system image repair with no luck, re-booted and the HP did some repairs and all was well. Cruise the forums, read about new update which I'll do Friday morning when I get up. Got up only to discover that my PC died completely overnight! No manner of repair helped, PC just started, and immediately shut-down. Now I'm really pissed, no computer means no update for IL2 and me not getting back on-line! Pulled and checked the power supply, all was fine, tried a spare power supply, all was fine, still no luck booting. Pulled the SSD and hard drive, checked both of them, they were fine, memory chips are fine, on/off switch was fine. Re-seated CPU, still no luck. I'm guessing something went bad with the MB. No patience for me (you know - old and crabby) to purchase components and build a new system. Found an off-the-shelf system that fit the bill with one day delivery! Sadly, one day delivery turned into Monday, so barring any other crap going wrong I should have a new system tomorrow. On the good side I'm going from an I5 4690 to an I7 8700K, and from a Nvidia 1070 to a 1070ti. Being retired and on a fixed income I have to be careful of how I spend my money. But with the approval of the CFO (spouse), who needed some sweet-talk (I had purchased the Mongoos stick and throttle recently), all should be good. I mean I couldn't leave the stick and throttle sit by idly... So I should be a happy camper again tomorrow, unless Murphy shows up, in which case I'll get arrested for murder. Goodnight all.

    Introducing the VPC MongoosT-50 Throttle

    There is a new version of the configurator software and an updated quick guide at Virpil's site. https://virpil.com/en/support/downloads
  9. I've noticed that the mission information page on the discord site is not updating for the normal server. Is it coming back?

    I'm seeing this the same way as Gruber.

    VPC MongoosT-50 Throttle Problem

    Make sure the path is correct to the firmware files on the firmware screen. You can navigate to it from the browse button. I had an issue previously and using cathaoir's method worked for me.

    Introducing the VPC MongoosT-50 Throttle

    I have mine set-up this way, and I use the scroll wheel for mixture control. Keeps them both very convenient.

    Introducing the VPC MongoosT-50 Throttle

    Hmmm, strange, I haven't had any issues with the throttle here, except for the ID's changing when I updated the firmware. In your data/input folder for IL2 open the devices.txt file to see what it says. When I updated the throttle firmware IL2 saw the throttle as the stick, and vice-versa. What stick are you using, and did you have a different throttle before you installed the new one?
  15. Currently on the normal server the allies only have two airfields remaining, both require that you buy (rent) your aircraft. This is fine if you have the required funds, but if someone logs in w/o any funds, they can't fly. I myself used up all my funds due to a couple of pranged props on landing, and subsequently I had nothing to fly. Another pilot had logged in to the server, and it appears tried to take-off, but was kicked. Probably due to the lack of funds. This guy may never come back. I really appreciate all of the work you do in maintaining both servers, but there needs to be a way for someone to get a plane, even if their check is returned for NSF.
