    Game running so smooth now

    I think 2K? It's an ultra wide so not quite 4k. I still don't think something is adding up. DCS and Cliffs of Dover run like butter. On the up side I am VERY happy that my force feedback stick is NOT the culprit. I couldn't fly without it now. This is why I have 5 of them..... EDIT/// I have dropped everything to low right down to draw distance...... Still a micro stutter. Next attempt is reinstall..... After that I'll tweak NVidia settings. If I can't fix this I'll have to put the game down for awhile.

    Yes, I've done all the smoothing especially as I have MSFFB2 joystick which some people claim causes stutter. I plugged my Warthog in and unplugged the FFB stick. Still got stutter which I was actually happy about. Force Feedback is so good I don't use my Warthog. I've dropped my settings to low... I've got an older processor... i7 4770K - GTX 970 - Asus EXtreme XIII mobo and 32 gig of RAM. I have a 32" curved ultra wide which gave me a performance hit but this is nuts. Gman said it could just be the Wings server. I'll keep testing and changing things but it made me rage quit and play DCS instead.

    Developer Diary 215 - Discussion

    It was bad all over. Lost at night, enemy up high. There are plenty of stories of Shermans getting pinked with much less of a disadvantage. It was a good tank. Front glacis slope was great. I still suspect another tank may have had a few more get out of the valley. If you keep mobile and out of a slug match she will do alright. If she get's pinned and forced into a slug match it didn't do as well as others. Still my favorite tank.

    Developer Diary 215 - Discussion

    There are a lot of myths about the Sherman correct. However, it did earn a lot of it's negative reputation as well. The two Canadian regiments were attacked by the 12th SS, who were equipped with 88 mm flak guns and Tiger tanks, among other heavy weapons. Lieutenant-Colonel Worthington was killed during the battle, and the survivors of the regiment managed to break contact with the 12th SS, after suffering 133 casualties and losing 48 out of 52 tanks. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_British_Columbia_Regiment_(Duke_of_Connaught's_Own)#The_Second_World_War My regiment got pasted in Shermans. Great tank sure but it had it's well known flaws which I feel people are trying to play down. It's still my favorite tank though. LOVE THAT MOVIE!!!! The opening scene is great.

    Some setups it creates stutter. I've also got mine off. I'll switch it on to see if it helps.

    I got the opposite. Lots of stutters now for the first time.

    KNIGHTS OF THE AIR Multiplayer Server

    I've popped into the server for a rip on your new maps. I LOVE the early war. Thank you for the 1941 map. It's great. The I16 is my favorite in game aircraft. Thank you for giving me a plane set where I can take the little rat up for a good time. Not that I don't mind trying to take on 190s but an E7 or an F2 is more of a level playing field. I like your new rules. As much as I enjoy a good vulch both giving and receiving I dislike chute shooting. It's mean spirited. For rule clarification, am I allowed to do enemy airfield raids? I really do like the living feeling of being in a war having airfield raids. My best BoX memory is having Ju88s raid my field as I taxied away from the apron. The explosions and screen shaking with my force feedback kicking the stick was epic. Anyway.... I withdraw earlier criticism. I like where you are taking this. Thanks for the efforts.

    "BERLOGA Duel & Dogfight" server

    Is there server down?

    Does IL-2 GB need to return to the Eastern Front?

    Where are you getting your info from? TF lead is in Canada....... Dudes are from around the globe. I beta tested last patch and put on a live stream. I've played with many TF members in ATAG. I loved ATAG server. Best time I've had dogfighting. The community in TeamSpeak was fantastic. I miss it..... The sim community is tight and feuds run long and deep. Keeping out of one feud is how I got a beta test spot. There have been heated discussions over the years and it turned people off. Even I was upset at one of the last ones and I stopped playing. I have been a long term fanboi of Cliffs. I hope it will pass but people have long memories in simming. TF is going to have to deliver something special to turn the game around which I hope they do. I really like the FM in Cliffs. I do have high hopes and wish them luck.

    Does IL-2 GB need to return to the Eastern Front?

    Hi newfriend. We know all of this and have known for years. People are cranky at TF for being jerks to their customers. I've got many posts defending TF as a fanboi but I had to stop when the flame wars with fans started. When their PR improves there will be less "I'm not giving them money" posts. When this game used to have less than ideal public relations a lot of us Cliffs fanbois refused to fly. I'm a high hours Cliffs fanboi, that the game is showing it's age is why it got downgraded from SSD to HDD. I've played only a couple of times in the past year and ATAG is always empty. I hope to see great improvements as the FM in Cliffs is really good. We will have to see.... I'd like to see the Battle of Britain done on this engine. I'd buy a brand new Cliffs of Dover. My ultimate wish would be for TF guys to be absorbed to get my game of choice developed faster. One can dream.

    BoS - Cannot shot down planes

    Nah, you can see better in VR. Dots are bigger. You can see around frames. They just adopted new tech early so suffer from current VR limitations. Field of view and resolution are not ready if you want to see detail and have peripheral vision. They have to crank themselves around in their seat much further than a person would have to in real life and what you can see in VR is not as clear as our monitors. Something to keep the lenses from fogging up would be nice too. Being critical of others setup while adopting tech early is a fault of too many VR players. When VR is ready it will be the default gear like track IR but until then it is a handicap. A really cool and immersive handicap.

    Tactical Air War

    Isn't this from the developer making ground stuff stronger?

    Tactical Air War

    We fly Sunday. We have the longest running campaign in flight simming currently. It didn't happen by accident. Our closed campaign is very good. I'm not bothered if you feel I'm being arrogant about being part of the longest running campaign in simming. In fact it would be a good idea to have thicker skin than you have shown to possess if you where to apply to join ACG. If you didn't want to leave your mates all of them can join. We've taken whole squadrons before. We have to be closed with members joining ACG so we can maintain order on fly day. We have guys join ACG to avoid Jammer like shenanigans tearing the whole thing apart. Riksen just posted that he is out of TAW now...... One guy can have one hell of a negative impact. In TAW we have more than just Jammer. We have entire squadrons who refuse to balance the server ruining it for all...... If you dislike some of the TAW shenanigans that you can never stomp out in a public campaign you are looking for a closed campaign. For TAW to move closer to what we have done it would need far more structure such as sign up sheets matching time zones. ACG has gone this way and as a result we've had a campaign going for 6 years or so. We will also shift guys around to maintain pilot balance. I have German tags but operate as 1-495 IAP in campaign flying an I16 due to needs of the group. We've got about 170 pilots at the moment. We've all sorts of personalities from the kind and generous to the crass asshats like myself. It is a time commitment but people are free to come and go as real life changes. https://www.aircombatgroup.co.uk/ Best bit is I still get to participate in TAW which I enjoy immensely. I just accept some of the silly stuff that comes with an open campaign. I've given up on expecting any sort of balance for example and just play for fun. From Jammers to team stack it is what it is so just enjoy it.

    It's not really Jammers fault..... This is the nature of pub play. Even a campaign. You have to take some silly lumps. For full immersion a closed campaign is the way to go. Come join Drifter. Tongue in cheek of course.
