  1. Count me in. The steering damper looks interesting as well. Might contribute to better yaw control and feel. I'm in the USA. Thanks
  2. @SAS_Storebror I've been using you great Recorder app for several months. The app has never failed to restart the Track Recorder. I've recently tried reducing the track recording size by reducing the MB number in the "min. Track size for Restart Rec:". My objective is to have smaller track files to speed review and editing. Problem is that no matter what MB number I use, the IL-2 track file is always 512 MB when the tracking runs to the MB file limit. I currently have a setting of 10 in the "min. Track size for Restart Rec:". Track file still runs to the max MB file size and restarts. I'm I doing something incorrect or do I not understand how this app is suppose to work? Thanks for your great app!
  3. Just to show it can work both ways. BTW same pilot and is a good one.
  4. Habu, I had the same problem. What I did to correct this on my computer is by turning off (unchecking) Full Screen in IL-2 Graphics settings. Have not experienced a reduction in IL-2 performance with non-Full Screen. Not sure if this would resolve your problem. It seems that what works with one system will not work with other systems. Good Luck.
  5. Andre I solved both problems. Posted I made on Tuesday, February 4 has been edited to explain the the resolution. Might help others that encounter the same problem.
  6. Having two problems with SimShaker-Wings. MY SETUP... Window 10 1903 eVGA GTX-2080ti / eVGA Dark motherboard / I7-9700K CPU (nothing overcocked..yet) Artis Pro Wireless Headphones Sound Blaster Audigy 5/RX (not using motherboard sound) for external speakers Sound Blaster Play! 3 - USB sound card for my single bass-shaker SimShaker-Wings beta 1.36 FIRST PROBLEM SimShaker-Wings is not retaining its settings after a reboot...cold or warm boot. Selecting SimShaker Manual Start...shows my previous setting missing. I reselect Bass-shaker and my Sound Blaster Play! 3 as the Dedicated Sound Card. A SimShaker-Wings window opens with "Application will restart to apply settings" but all the settings I just entered are removed. I select OK (only way to continue, cannot exit and return to setting window) and the Settings window reopens with all the settings is just made missing and an error message in the Text Log Information area (see picture below). I have not been able to find any information on the internet about this error. Also I have not found any errors related to SimShaker in my Event Log/Applications. Also nothing in the Use Guide The only way I can get my settings to work is to open Windows Sound Control Panel. Select Sound Blaster Play! 3. And change anything in the “Advanced” tab and select “Apply”. I can deselect "Enable audio enhancements” or reselect if it was previously deselected. Also works by changing settings in the "Exclusive Mode" area. I can then go back to the SimShaker settings and get my selections to work. The selections will normally hold until I reboot...cold or warm. Solved... Prior to using SimShaker-Wings I set my Sound Blaster! 3 device as a Hardware Out in VoiceMeeter which worked for basic Bass-Shaker output. The Bass-Shaker was connected to the Sound Blaster!3. Removing the Sound Blaster! 3 from VoiceMeeter Hardware Out corrected the problem. SimShaker-Wings runs my Bass-Shaker independent of Voicemeeter. Second Problem When I do get SimShaker to retain my settings and test with my bass-shaker, I have a problem when I start IL-2 Great Battles. With Sim-Shaker is set to Auto Start, IL-2 starts (black splash screen with IL-2 logo) then drops to the Taskbar with SimShaker Launcher window and settings window on my computer screen and remains that way. My mouse will not work on the main window or any open window, i.e. SimShaker. The mouse will show on the taskbar. I can try to close any open app on the taskbar but the app will not close. The only way to get out of this situation is to do a hard reset and restart. Sometimes after several tries of all of the above, IL-2 will run without dropping to the Taskbar. The problem returns after a cold or warm boot. Solved (at least on my computer)... Turned off Full Screen in IL-2 Great Battles. Problem might be my 2 screen setup. I run IL-2 Great Battles on my primary screen (3440x1440). My secondary screen (1920x1200) is used to display TeamSpeak, etc. Not sure if that caused the problem but the behavior has stopped. No change in game performance.
  7. Yuk! Mission 2...no problem. Mission 3...the problem is back. Pressing both toe brakes does not work at Mission 3. Pressing the toe brakes turns TechoChat Parking Brakes icon off and displays the Techmessage that the parking brake is released. The aircraft will not move. I've tried with the "Brakes" keyboard command, left brake and right brake together as well as separate. Each time I get the parking brake release message and the parking brake icon off. Also tried with the "Wheel parking brakes on/off" command with no success. I do not have this problem in Quick mission or Single Player mission. Pressing either the left or right brake releases the parking brake in Quick mission and Single Player mission allowing the aircraft to taxi.
  8. Thanks Gordon! That was the problem. I should have known better. A-20 has independent wheel brakes require each wheel brake to be released. I must have missed that in Requiem's tutorial. I watch all his tutorials regardless of whether I need it or not. On the previous missions that worked, I must have not realized I had tapped both brakes at the same time. The sim should really have 2 parking brake icons. I'll submit that as a suggestion. Thanks Schmehl. I did try in single playing. There's an A-20 mission in the Mission menu. Appreciate your consideration. Gordon's response took care of the problem. Now back to bombing the Kuban Axis!
  9. Have run into a problem with "Havoc Over the Kuban". Ran Missions 1 through 4 without a problem. With Mission 5, started A-20 with the usual procedures, release parking brake and the A-20 move slightly then stopped and would move no further. Ran engines to full power but A-20 would not move. Reapplied parking brake and released parking brake but A-20 would still not move. Aborted mission and restarted. A-20 started normally. Released parking brake and again A-20 would not move. Ran the engines to full power and still would not move. I can see the nose of the A-20 dip slightly under full power but the A-20 does not move. Tried restarting the campaign from the beginning. Mission 1 ran OK. Completed mission and returned to base. Started Mission 2. Same problem again. A-20 started with usual start procedure. Released parking brake but A-20 will not move even under full engine power. I tested and do not have this problem with the A-20 in Quick Mission or the Single Mission. The Campaign is great. I at a loss of what to do to resolve. Any ideas?
  10. Jason wants to add pilots body for VR. I would like to see it as an option for non-VR also. I would like the option to be able to record in track file for video recordings but not during the actual flight.
  11. NaturalPoint TrackIR creates two "Profile" folder locations when it installs. The one you show in your post is not the one TrackIR uses. The folder TrackIR will use is located in your Local Disk (C:)> Users > "Your User Name" > AppData > Roaming > NaturalPoint > TrackIR 5 > Profiles. If you cannot see the folders/files, they may be hidden. Select the "View" tab at the top of Windows File Explorer. On the upper right side of File Explorer select "Hidden items." I believe this was a change that NaturalPoint made with version 5.
  12. Might be you're putting the file in the wrong folder location. Profile should be copied to Windows OS install drive. Normally the C Drive at Users > Your User Name Folder > AppData > Roaming > NaturalPoint > TrackIR 5> Profiles
  13. Fantastic News! I nearly fell out of my chair when I saw this. This will be a significant revival of combat flight sims...ETO, WTO, PTO, The Med, Korea...and more! Thanks to everyone's hard work and diligence to make this happen.
  14. This is crazy! I did nothing today different from yesterday. Opened mission in ME. Selected the plane icon which opened the Plane Properties window. Selected the Plane Model button and changed the plane. Closed the Plane Properties window. Opened the Mission Properties window and changed the Mission Name and Description. Selected Save As for the new plane. Ran the new mission and was able to land on the runway...not under it. I've done this for 6 different planes with no problem...they all work. Anyway THANKS for all the responses. Glad to know we have members ready to provide assistance. Thanks for the offer HABU! I've been able to create/edit the practice missions I need.
