  1. same problem here since today:

    I launch IL-2 via steam , it loads, show the initial login window, and then CTD

    If I run the Il-2.exe directly, I can login normally with  my 1C account and run the game without any issues. 

    Never had any problme before.


    Additional info:

    Did not do any update recently. Everything started suddenly....yesterday it was running.

    PC is update though...all drivers etc ok. Windows 10 64.

    I already verified the integrity of the files, and steams reports it is not correct. It seems it donwloads it again, but that does not solve the problem (after rebooting etc). 


    Any thoughts is appreciated.

  2. So, I will give  my opinion based on RL spotting, not game spotting.

    I am (motor-)glider pilot with about 500 hours. I dont use any eye corrections, and can virtually spot ANYTHING flying around me within 4-6 km in a clear day (almost no haze). I can also certainly spot an aircraft flying below me 3-4k over the ground or over me. I can see my fellow pilots on the airfield walking around from 2k.

    In IL-2, the 4-6km spotting only possible in some situations depending on background and vertical vertical spotting is very difficult, almost impossible over forests adn things alike. I can guarantee you that does NOT happen in RL.


    The consequence of all that is that my eyes get very, very tired and dry after an hour or so of IL-2. I would like to fly more, but I really cant. In RL, I fly gliders regularly over 5 hours and have no problems with my eyes. I also fly BMS for much longer times (smart scalling works perfect), DCS (there are some bugs, but spotting works) and more recently MSFS (looks good so far), and also do not have any eyes issues.


    Based on my experience, for me it is clear since I started with IL2- two years ago, the spotting math in IL-2 is not correct for the constrains we have with a monitor at about 75cm-1m in front of our eyes. The "hardcore" argument here is in my opinion BS, since we are in front of monitor and not in a cockpit! You cant use RL values....you need to adapt.


    PS: Reshade helps though to improve spotting. Some servers, however, do not accept it....

  3. There is another topic on it, but I decided to make a new one since it seems is a generalized problem in all main servers with more than 30+ pilots, and there is no solution.

    Never had any problem with that, I run an high end PC, all maxed out, FPS offline well over 100fps, with a Down400Mbit/Up40Mbit bandwidth.

    Tried to play with the settings, but did not help.


    Chatted with several guys few minutes on Combat Box, KOTA and WOL, and almost everyone is having the same issues. The word out there is [edited]


    So, anyone has perhaps a solution? Anyone of you having same problems?
