    High Altitude Bombing above +5k

    Heh, it's rare you'll find a co-ordinated defense at 5K, even with 109 pilots. ๐Ÿ˜‹

    Err, moderator?

    Enjoy your three day ban Marsh!

    High Altitude Bombing above +5k

    We routinely bomb at 5K. It's not really worth going any higher right now (and so I cannot answer your original question), the draw-bubble is so small at any altitude beyond that you run the risk of not having enough time to locate the target. It's pretty shite really... Great Battles of IL2 but only if you stay within a 9KM bubble.
  4. The number of responses Temuri has made to this, and consequently ignored, is frankly depressing. Just give us another 109 model and we'll shut up. ๐Ÿ˜’
  5. I've only ever been hit twice at 5K by flak, both times fatal... but that's out of how many sorties? ๐Ÿ˜…
  6. Is that just like the great revolution of 3D cinema? Haha. VR will always remain incredibly niche.
  7. Why is the server limited to 19 slots? ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Tactical Air War

    This is a game bug that is affecting other servers. Durability values and the scale of damage applied to them isnโ€™t working properly. As far as I know, it can be remedied somewhat but it means you can destroy infrastructure with cannons and machine guns.
  9. Seems to be a new bug with the latest update.
  10. This was a problem on Finnish last year. Buildings were resisting bomb blasts but would be destroyed by a 20mm cannon; you're right coconut in that the developers seem to give very little attention to mud-moving and bombers.

    I don't want to jinx it (probably will) but I'm on three hours of online flight-time now without a disconnect.
  12. Leifr


    Are you saying that you did not disconnect at all last night?
  13. Yes, this would be nice. It can be hard to discern what is and isn't a target at 5K - factories are definitely the biggest culprit. I really appreciate the factor that we must scout out targets first Coconut, but some recon pictures of what a typical 'factory' looks like with all of it's component parts would be ace.

    Is TrackIR best choice?

    Yup, I managed to buy my TIR set quite cheaply from the USA several years back. If I was looking for a head tracking clip today, I would probably buy an alternative - especially when one considers the construction materials used.

    Is TrackIR best choice?

    Anecdote, as always. Out of our group of regular fliers, the only players who have never had an issue with head-tracking are those using TrackIR. The other guys have all tried various homebrew methods and cheaper set-ups, they have all periodically vented frustration at the equipment failing at some point during flight-time. This isn't to say that TrackIR is clearly the best, I think the hardware is pretty shite for what you pay (plastic headclips, etc etc) but it works.

    I may as well chip in with my experience so far also. I encountered this error for the first time on the 20th of January on Coconut's Expert server, I have never had a connection issue with IL2 prior to this (nor any other game). It is impossible to predict, there seems to be no identifiable reason at my end of the connection as to why the disconnect happens. It happens on taxiway, it happens in-flight, it's even happened on the modifications menu after connecting to the server. I have tried the following 'solutions' so far, none of these have worked. Decreased router MTU to various points. Deleted all mission files. Deleted startup.cfg and allowed the game to rebuild. Reinstalled clean version of IL2. Updated router and power-cycled several times. Launched IL2 as an administrator, both through Steam and through the Launcher. Monitored both my router and the server through cmd/ping -t command at the same time. There are no timeouts, no loss of packets - I have a nominally perfect connection. Switched ethernet cables. It stands to say that I have a stable connection in other online games, this issue is unique to IL2. There is literally nothing else I can do at my end, and so I can only reason to believe that there is an issue with IL2 itself. I hope they don't mind but I am going to tag the following people also who I know to also have this issue. We have spoken extensively prior to this thread via PM as to possible solutions but none have presented themselves. @No.85_Camm @Black-Witch 1C support haven't been very useful. They have copy/pasted the same solution to at least two of us, the solution being to "check network settings". ๐Ÿคค

    Hi Martin. Unfortunately it seems that more and more folk are now being afflicted with this error. We have not managed to find a solution to it, nor does 1C seem particularly interested in helping - their technical responses are copy/paste check network settings. Here and here and here. If any one has a solution to this, please bring it forward because it is impossible to fix once it starts.
  18. Cool, another user with the same unfixable error. Once you have it, it'll never go away! Welcome to being booted from every server on a random chance.
  19. This is still a problem, I have exhausted all of my diagnostic abilities at my end of the connection. Has any one here ever managed to resolve this issue properly? Technical support isn't very useful and don't seem to have an idea as to why it happens.

    "Multiplayer erratic behavior" 24/7

    See response from Jason in another thread. It looks like he has generally no idea as to how unstable and laggy the multiplayer is. ๐Ÿ˜ถ

    How's your credit score ?

    That's not viable for everyone though Woop. I was interested in joining the ACG campaign until I was told there was no option to fly bombers apart from the JU-87 Stuka, surprisingly the Peshka squadron was full. I had five extra bomber pilots to come with me but we all cancelled on the thought of being forced in to the 87 and mandatory affiliation to an ACG squadron. As awesome as you guys (and the campaigns) are, they're not very flexible for casual fliers. ๐Ÿ™„ Hager, you have some good thoughts but I am not sure how viable they really are for an online environment. Finnish Server had a credit/awards-based system for a while but it was removed on player protest. It's a shame, I do wish that people cared more for their pilot than the plane.
  22. @Black-Witch Can you delete your startup.cfg and allow the game to rebuild a new one? I have tried this and, so far since Friday, have not had a disconnect. @No.85_Camm has had similar success for the time being. We can't be totally sure yet that it is the fix but so far, so good. By the by, I am also on Virgin Media in Nottingham. I believe Camm is too, but in Lincolnshire.
  23. Hi Phillip, thank you for the reply. I haven't encountered it for a few hours of flight-time now, spent some time on Beluga, WoL and Coconut. I deleted my startup.cfg file and allowed the game to rebuild a new one, it has worked for @No.85_Camm so far (fingers crossed!). Please try it and report back.
  24. Player counts are showing again for enemy airfields in multiplayer, this reappeared after the 3.010b update. EDIT: Weird, the numbers disappeared after a couple of minutes and reverted to being hidden.
  25. I used to think the same as you X-Man, and then I spent a considerable length of time in the Peshka online with friends. Also worth noting, the ser.87 version can take a blister turret on the rear that upgrades the 7.62mm guns to a single 12.7mm gun - that is much more deadly than the usual loadout, I also think it's the version most people take. Oh, it also only has one round of ammunition too. For what it's worth, I've been 'sniped' by a single-shot return fire from a JU-87 Stuka... ๐Ÿคค Maybe spend a few hours in the Peshak on Wings of Liberty, KoTR or Coconuts server and see what you think?
