  1. Thanks 69thSpiritus and Custard for helping me out, its now downloading the new content. Well that wasn't exactly straightforward.
  2. I think I've got it now. It wasn't activated so I had to copy and past the code in. Other posters have said they just went to the game and it automatically updated so confused as to why I needed to do that.
  3. 2 people giving me different info now fellas. I had the original game ages ago and then updated it on Steam to Blitz. As to activating the key on Steam, you've lost me there. How do I do that?
  4. I've restarted the computer then gone back into Steam and still nothing. I've also checked Paypal and the transaction went through.
  5. I've also right clicked on the Blitz game, gone to properties and there is no DLC tab but with other games I have with DLC the tab is there. I just have tabs for general, updates, local files, language and betas. Is this a complete game delete and reinstall?????
  6. I've got version 5.0 at the bottom of the page but its the same game with what look like a couple of background images changes. The campaigns are the same Adler Angriff and Cliffs of Dover. I did have a download but it just seems to have updated the core game.
  7. No I just have this!!!!! But I do have DLC button with other games. I bought the add-on last week and its showing in purchases on the IL2 site.
  8. I am also totally confused about downloading the add on. People are saying click on a DLC button when you click on the game in the left hand pane of Steam but I can't find a DLC button. Help!!!!
  9. I just deleted all careers and started new ones again! 🙄 They are loading properly now
  10. Hi all, I am having a weird problem with IL2. The software opens fine, I can run quick missions, scripted campaigns and multiplayer but when I try to open an existing career it just sits there saying 'loading' but nothing happens. Thinking something has corrupted as I do remember having a computer crash recently. Is it a case of uninstalling and reinstalling everything or is there a quick fix to this? Cheers G
  11. Just downloaded the new update but can't find the P47-D22 Razorback. Am I just being a bit dull here? Do we have to pay for it?
  12. I am not sure whether this is a bug or a change to the P47 since the new patch. It was working fine until the new patch but I now don't seem to be able to link my P47 throttle and prop pitch on a keyboard shortcut. If I do link them the prop pitch lever increases visually in the cockpit when I increase the throttle but when I decrease the throttle the pitch lever stays in the same place. It just seems to be stuck there. It says on the right hand side messages that I have linked and unlinked them but there is no message that the pitch is increasing or decreasing. The only way I can change it again is to unlink it from the throttle and run it separately. The throttle and turbo works fine though. Does anyone have any ideas on this?
  13. Just had a similar problem with my throttle and prop pitch link in the P47. It says in the game that is linking and unlinking but nothing is happen. Where do I find the devices.text file?
  14. Ah right. I didn't realise. As the announcement said BOBP and FC released I thought that would mean career modes for both. Thanks for the info Trooper
  15. Great news that the BOBP and FC have been released but I am a bit confused (doesn't take much). I can start a BOBP career but not an FC career although I have bought both well in advance. Am I missing something here?
  16. Thanks for the quick reply Rosco. That's a bit annoying. In reality would pilots in the air be in constant contact with ground forces? If they were they would be given grid coordinates to a friend or foe, not an obvious red or blue icon on a map which is far too easy to suss out.
  17. Hi all I play IL2 as realistically as possible in career mode so I turn off all aids apart from warmed engine. This means that I have to navigate as you would in a normal aircraft by looking at scenery and taking timings to waypoints. This was all fine for ages but I have now started to notice that aircraft icons and ground units in red and blue now appear on the map when I get within a certain radius to the objective point. Has this been added on one of the recent updates or is there some key press I have accidentally hit? How can I turn this off? I have attached a screen grab as an example.
  18. Wow, well done to the devs on a fantastic new update. I finally get to fly the Jug. What a beast!!!😎
  19. Thanks Luke. That sheds a bit of light
  20. I regularly play offline campaigns but wondered whether there was any reference material on the information marked on the maps. By this I don't mean flight paths or plane icons, but the various ovals, semi circles and triangles marked in red or blue denoting army movements. What do these actually mean?
  21. Others asking about the plane icon still showing on the map in Expert mode which appears to be a minor bug. Run in Custom mode instead and just make sure the objects checkbox is unticked.
  22. Congratulations on a fantastic upgrade. The career mode is now superb. I also bought the G6 and new LA5 to go with it and how good are they!!!!! Brilliant! One small thing I can't figure out how to do now though....how do I get rid of my plane icon on the map in expert mode? It used to be a key bind with the compass heading overlay. That still works so I can get rid of that overlay but the plane stays. Any ideas?
