  1. Hi all, as I delve further into this great sim...just wondering about the utility of the Gyro compass in the p40 series...given that to my knowledge, these don't have a course setter? Have watch a YT on using the gyro in the Brit a/c..setting up an interception against an enemy fighter..any pointers on how to use the Gyro compass in general with the P40s, navigation, interception, etc??
  2. Thanks Redwo1f..done. Initial impressions. Two thumbs up!. I will get many hours of "fun" with both Blitz 5.0 and Desert Wings...well done TF!
  3. Well pushed the button on this one..after initially griping about price.....bought off the IL2 website...guess wait until a key turns up?
  4. Re the map, just by way of comparison, check out the Persian Gulf map in DCS, a game of similar "vintage" to this one. There may be underlying technical issues with CLOD that dont allow that sort of look, however. Now back to TF Blitz...good job on 5.0!
  5. Thanks for your first impressions, Belmont. Will get this perhaps down the track. Kudos to the developers for their dedication in reviving the original platform and improving upon it. However, in my somewhat humble opinion, given that this is an add on, I find that the price being asked is somewhat steep. The full price is close to 100 AUD. Thats typically the price of a newly released title. I would have thought around the 40 AUD mark may have been more appropriate, but thats just me. In comparison, MS 2020 is coming out, with what looks to be ground breaking start of the art features, with the base product being priced similarly to Tobruk...just my 2 cents...
  6. Hi all...title says it all...well almost. Thing is, I cannot progress from this mission, despite meeting what I think the goals are, eg, today, I destroyed 3 AAA, shot down a 109...down on ammo, I bugged out for home and landed sucessfully...so heres the thing. At the screen, I get a mission failed? Despite following the prompts throughout the mission...couldve it been the bugout that did meet some script that caused the mission fail? Cheers in advance...
  7. Good info...will stay away from it until I have suitable hardware...
  8. Chiming in to this thread...am information gathering as to whether I can add VR to my system. Primary games are IL2 and DCS flight sims. Current hardware is dated but dont really wont to drop a big dollars on hardware. Win 10,Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3770K CPU @ 3.50GHz, 3901 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s), AMD Rx580 GPU, 8GB Ram. With my Freesync monitor I get great frame rates on high settings. Very happy there. Is anybody else using a similar system with VR? Would not expect to get stellar frame rates on my sys. But playable without detracting from the experience? If so what VR headsets are out there to suit? Have noticed the Rift S
  9. Have escalated this to Steam. Can't play any Steam game. Wait and see what the response is. Gut feel it's a Windows/Steam conflict of some description.
  10. Have turned off AV in Windows Security and still no joy. Admin all the way. Uninstall. Reinstall. Over and over again. Followed instructions to the letter. Thank goodness IL2 comes with its own installer. Otherwise I would be screwed. Fingers crossed the next iteration of CLOD will come with its own installer. No more steam.
  11. From event viewer. The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Launch permission for the COM Server application with CLSID Windows.SecurityCenter.WscDataProtection and APPID Unavailable to the user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM SID (S-1-5-18) from address LocalHost (Using LRPC) running in the application container Unavailable SID (Unavailable). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool. Have added exclusion in Windows Security. Firewall is OK. Have uninstalled, reinstalled. Nothing is working. Very baffling. Steam Client problem??
  12. Hi Whenever I attempt to run Blitz from Steam it causes my system to reboot. Event manager says its distributed com error 10016. Any attempt to regedit as per fixing distributed com error comes up with access denied regarding permissions changes. Any help most appreciated.

  13. Very sad news indeed. If I remember correctly, a great contributor..particularly regarding FMs...
  14. Well said Novice...I just finished flying the stock RAF campaign in CLOD Blitz and had a good time...(Yes, the final mission was a bit..hmmm..done to death years ago that topic)...May both sims prosper and go forward...I may go back to BOM even if some one can point me to a good mission pack, campaign etc for that... Happy New Year to all...
  15. Since any company not profitable goes out of business, its self evident that 1C-777 is profitable. Full stop. Period.
