  1. ...and they taste like chicken. πŸ˜‰
  2. Just came back from our local July 4th parade - fire trucks and cheesy floats raining candy. Aah, it doesn't get any better than that. And it's one of few days when it's OK to start drinking beer before noon.
  3. Hey pa4tim, Your best bet is to go to the sas1946 site and ask your questions there, in the "new member safety area". Most mods at SAS are built on IL2 4.12.2m. There is an "unpatcher" to get from your version to the appropriate one. It is important to note that you should not install your game to the windows "Programs" folder. If you've already done so, you can simply copy the whole game folder to another location. IL2 does not make any windows registry entries, so you can move or copy to anywhere you'd like. It's also important to keep a "virgin" install of your game somewhere as a backup. Cloyd
  4. Hey Arfsix, The IGNORE function is your friend. BSR has long been on my ignore list. πŸ˜‰ Cloyd
  5. ...and AeroAce definitely drinks too much coffee. πŸ˜‰
  6. Should I assume that you mean in the MP microcosm? Offline might be different.
  7. Just pulled the bird out of the oven. Let the gluttony begin!
  8. Happy Thanksgiving from the land of the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag natives.
  9. I have nothing to contribute to this topic. Just showing off my gold bars. πŸ˜‰
  10. Chief, Put all the downloaded VP files into a single folder. It's a multi-part zip, so unzipping the first one unzips them all. (Although it looks like only part 1 unzips.) Just point the zip to the appropriate IL2 install folder.
  11. Stock game: 6.5 gb HSFX (no longer supported, oriented to online): 13gb VP_Modpack: 40gb (without the jet stuff) BAT: 80gb I'd go with the VP option, even if you have to install it on a plug-in harddrive/thumbdrive. VP has always been sensitive to being able to run the game on modest hardware. I think you could run it from an external drive without too much trouble. BAT, OTOH, is rather demanding on hardware.

  12. Really not trying to criticize you, Bidu. It's bad for me too. My system is old, but it works much better in-game than in the menu. I guess I can live with that. Cloyd
  13. The solution is simple: Don't spend too much time in the hangar. Make your clicks and be gone. πŸ˜‰ It's been that way from almost the beginning. There are plenty of other more compelling performance issues, in my opinion. Do you want them to spend time on this? If it were really simple, they probably would have fixed it already. (BTW, will we get a Christmas tree in the hangar this year? πŸ˜‰) Cloyd
  14. Hey GTOA, I wasn't being critical. I've never flown a plane, never will. But give me just a few things that help me to pretend, and I'm all in. I'm OK with filling in the blanks. πŸ˜‰
