  1. Tha Panthahr looks wondershoen! I hope some day the detailed stuff you guys make can be used to its full potential online.
  2. There is really no getting around it if you want to use the FW190. Whatever you do, it always ends up in having to make that shot, obviously the first time. Some 190 pilots get multiple opportunities in one df but that is not the way to fly it anyway. Purely for offline - you should force AI to overshoot as it likes to keep E advantage even while flying yaks.
  3. If you buy BoS on Steam first thing you should do is link your game account with GreatBattles account. If you don`t link, your steam purchases will not use content from IL2 store. Also remember that even if you purchase dlc on IL2 store, steam store will not detect those purchases so in steam store those same dlcs will be available to buy (no "In Library" tag). Which doesn`t make a difference if you link both accounts, as you still use all content as one game.
  4. Somebody`s been watching too much Oprah... ;)
  5. What is the best drag free / cooling solution for oil coolers and radiators on the P39 P40?
  6. Not much changed with AAA on mine. Still plenty of firing units in large industrial areas. So with more powerful cpu the slowdowns should go away. Thanks I was trying to determine if it was the game engine having problems or my (very old) pc.
  7. Simplest is to do like Stiglitz said but with variation. Full throttle, shallow dive to gain more speed, zoom with yoyo and level out at circa 300 kph to see where he is. Focus on gaining vertical separation, not horizontal.
  8. Well then, my pc manages to hold 70-120fps in crowded places at "medium" setting yet the game still slows down considerably.
  9. Many problems with AI persist but I did notice the change in df logics. I do not know if it is an improvement. The thing I know is AI 109G4 maneuvered me into his teammates crosshair and my VVS pilot`s life ended on his 18th sortie.
  10. There are two separate concepts of buying and installing IL2. 1) through Steam - you buy Battle of Stalingrad as a standalone, then you have IL2 on Steam. Then you can buy other titles - on Steam as DLC to BoS or - on IL2 Store as standalone - if you pick this option you will be required to link your Steam BoS account with IL2 store account or your IL2 store purchases will not merge with BoS. You cannot buy BoM, BoK, BoBP on Steam if you do not own BoS on Steam. 2) through IL2 Store - you buy anything you want and download and install the game via IL2 custom launcher; no linking of accounts needed.
  11. That is because the Yak is a real winner compared to other VVS equipment. The series featured in BoK have little to fear of 109s and nothing of 190s. Only when you fly them all, on both sides, then you get the geniune perspective of what the P39 is. Overall like the FW190 it is a great fighter - versatile, easy to fly, relatively sturdy and has a narrow performance envelope advantage over the enemy. How you use it is your case. If the coop multiplayer was strong / popular in the series, the P39 would get far more recognition as it did in IL2 : 1946.
  12. Solely for SP to survive most of VVS campaign I advise you to : 1) stay in target area just for the Critical Objective Accomplished message and head to base immediately; 2) if left alone to die, go for the trees and run. Just don`t go online yet. Even though the P39 is a good plane, out there against human 109 it is a world of hurt. Takes advanced skill to survive.
  13. I think the Ju52 sales is the reason DC3 is not picked to be flyable. What is more, making AI only planes flyable through collector plane concept is a dodgy idea. A BoBP owner would have to buy a cockpit for a plane he technically already paid for.
  14. I think some people have a problem realising that if you were fighter pilot in the Luftwaffe, 109/190s was all that you flew for the whole war. Additionally with LW desperate situation in `44 there was a lot of old hardware flying around. I remember in 1946 flying some pretty funny but realistic coop scenarios. LW vs Romanian / Hungarian , both equipped with 109s although the LW had the latest equipment to fly. Needless to say what was the outcome of those sorties.
