  1. Hi Just some thoughts on possible game additions: 1. Night flying and night fighter bombers options and scenarios 2. Bad weather, cross winds, heavy rain and snow on game servers 3. Interesting aircraft The Boulton Paul Defiant: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boulton_Paul_Defiant 4. Prequel to The Battle of Britain is Dunkirk / Operation Dynamo: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunkirk_evacuation
  2. Many thanks for the feedback. Cheers Ken
  3. Now playing on the TAW server. Can someone please advise optimum settings for the P40 at cruise and combat? I have fried a few engines unfortunately!! Ken
  4. Also I think you can calibrate your joystick via your PC. I did this with my Logitech Extreme 3D PRO and realised there were problems in addition to the main issues I had. Ordered another PRO 3D and much better. Long term I need rudder pedals. The twisting joystick for rudder movement not ideal
  5. Very good point. If I cant repair this one I should upgrade to something like you suggest. Are you using VR yet?
  6. Thanks for the reply. I'm pretty sure it is not trim but will have a look. But good point. The problem is across all aircraft. There is an inconsistent yawing left and right when I turn. I tried calibrating the joystick and I can see that my right yaw is hardly working and left is inconsistent. So I'm thinking it is a sensor problem in my joystick. Costs about £35 GBP to replace joystick or I could try and repair but it looks complicated. I found this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otk8uFOCD64 I think it is a sensor right in the core base of controller, unless something has worked lose somewhere. Worse case a sensor may have failed. I have had this joystick about three years I think. What a pain! Will try and figure it out. Thanks for replying. Cheers, Ken
  7. When I play Sturmovik the aircraft is constantly yawing making control very difficult. I assume must be a problem with the Logitech Extreme 3D PRO JOYSTICK? When I turn left or right the yawing increases Any ideas Ken
  8. Many thanks for your response. That is very helpful. Sounds like I should stick with my PC rig for Sturmovik. Thanks again cheers Ken
  9. Ok thanks Oliver. Yes I need to play it. See you up there
  10. Ok many thanks for the advice. Much appreciated. On the Spitfire I set my guns to 200 metres. A lot of my kills are via deflection shot where I don't often see the target, because I'm used to tight turning I'm aiming ahead. But with blackouts I think I need to rethink my whole approach to air combat. Your feedback is very interesting - thanks. Also what is FC?
  11. I'm a non techie so be patient with me. Is anyone playing Sturmovik via Nvidia GeForce? I know Google with Stadia and Microsoft with xcloud are competing in the online game streaming sector. But I understand Nvidia GeForce is superior. I bought Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad plus the others via the main website and not steam. I went downloaded Nvidia GeForce onto my PC and you can access Steam through that. You can add games there. The only way I can add Sturmovik is via the activation product keys but I can't find them. Or am I missing something? I have a pretty good rig. My system is: Processor: Intel (R) Core (TM) i7-8700K CPU @ 3.70 GHz Installed memory (RAM): 16.0 GB (15.9 GB Usable) System type: 64-bit Operating System, x64 - based processor Windows 10 Graphic card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 So the big question - is playing Sturmovik via an online streaming service going to give me a better performance than what I currently have? Inevitably this kind of streaming will overtake my rig. I currently play on maximum graphic settings using head tracker. Currently getting some micro freezing Also if I want to try it through Nvidia GeForce, where can I find my old product keys?
  12. Ok thanks for the great feedback. That is very interesting to read and makes a lot of sense. The biggest killer for me nowdays is crashing because of blackout. It is very frustrating. Also very frustrating that when I'm chasing a target they seemingly pull high G moves. I follow and black out, lose the target and then get nailed. Or when my vision returns I have lost the target. I think as you say its knowing your limitations and not being drawn into a bad situation in the first place. It is very easy to get fixated on a target.
  13. Yes I need to check out FC1. I do wonder how well calibrated the whole blackout thing is. Because every individual would be different. But I guess developers have to draw the line somewhere. Thanks for the feedback Is there an optimum combat speed in the spit to balance tight manoeuvring with avoiding blackouts? I will definitely check out FC1. Thanks for the feedback
  14. Ok thanks for the feedback. I read somewhere the Spitfire can easily exceed the pilots G force tolerance. Now I understand why former pilots say it was tricky and could bite you really hard if mistakes were made
