  1. Ah great, thanks Sketch! Sorry that I didn't spot that myself. Cheers! Mike
  2. Hm... I frequently take 21 (RAAF) Sqn or 112 Sqn aircraft no.25 for a ride just because it's so funny to see the reactions when you pop up on one's six with that tailcode, but this... is... something. Cheers! Mike
  3. I think the question is whether the keys have been activated on your account already or not. It'd be odd if that was possible at all, as it would activate the same thing twice, still... look at your "License keys" page and you should know. The fact that you bought the keys doesn't mean that you have to activate them. Of course you can give them to others as far as I can see. The only thing is that each key can be activated on one account only. Cheers! Mike
  4. Ah thanks now I see. Question answered Cheers! Mike
  5. Another possibly stupid question of mine: What exactly triggers the Tags shown underneath the user pic on the left in this forum? I'm asking since the only tag I have is "BOK", whereas I own anything Battle of XXX has to offer. I won't wonder too much if BOS was missing since I bought that from Steam and not from the IL-2 shop, but all other content is straight from the shop and nothing shows up. Any clue? Cheers! Mike
  6. This might be a stupid question, yet I dare to ask: Is there a way to open the builtin stock missions in the mission editor? I've tried to extract them from gtp file, tried MissionResaver, each to no avail. Either I'm doing something wrong, or I'm trying to do something impossible. Any clues? Cheers! Mike
  7. Only if you'd seal your room and take the barometric altitude from the game to control the pressure inside. Otherwise the assumption that IAS airflow @ground level comes close to TAS airflow at altitude is quite valid. Cheers! Mike
  8. Type of improvement: Miscellaneous Explanation of proposals: Reorganize Forum Tags Benefits: Currently it seems like Steam Purchases aren't reflected in Forum Tags, while at the same time several Tags exist that have no meaning for a normal user as they're basically depicting nothing but a dev team membership in all kinds of flavours. A tag scheme like "Team Member", followed by owners of each module regardless where it's been purchased from, would make more sense IMHO.
  9. Type of improvement: Multiplayer Explanation of proposals: Enable custom callsign Benefits: Decouple Account Names / Profile Names / Player Names. Sometimes you just don't need everyone else to know who you are, and if you fly with different Squads, you have to change your whole account's name (and e.g. the forum nick with it) each time you fly with another squad. Type of improvement: Graphics Explanation of proposals: Decouple Cinematic View Mode from other side effects Benefits: Decouple cinematic view (which is fanstastic for outside view in F2 mode) from other possibly unwanted effects like blurred view on head turn, or blurred screenshots. Type of improvement: Control Explanation of proposals: Replicate Head Turns using TrackIR Benefits: Currently I see my head moving around in outside view if I turn my head using mouse movement. However using TrackIR, my head in outside view stays straight. Same thing in multiplayer mode, two players using TrackIR don't see each others head moving at all. This should be an easy fix as it already works in mouse mode.
  10. Now that those suggestions for Freetrack users are based on the release of 1.005 patch, which brought back TrackIR 3 support and with it the old TrackIR protocol, maybe 1.008 broke that support of the old TrackIR protocol again? Best regards - Mike
  11. It might be that FreeTrack is not working with BoS at all. Do we really have evidence that there's any FreeTrack user out there who's running FreeTrack with BoS successfully? If so, what was there installation procedure? The reason I'm guessing that there might be unrecoverable issues is this: Duccio_71 mentions that the game starts fine when he uninstalls FreeTrack. FreeTrack seems to modify something concerning "KernelBase.dll", which gets loaded by IL-2.exe Since it's pretty unlikely that FreeTrack applies binary modifications to the "KernelBase.dll" file (for the beforementioned reasons, it's really not that easy to modify windows system files which are under file protection by Win 7 and the like), I'd rather bet that FreeTrack hooks up some other less protected DLL which gets loaded by the games too (dinput.dll as a wild guess) and furtheron injects code into the game's process memory, hitting the KernelBase.dll area here. That might not work with IL-2.exe. I have just tested another application which uses DLL injection mechanism too (it's an app which can be used to manually bind another application to a specific network device, in case you have multiple network connections on your PC). While the app works with any other application tested so far, IL-2.exe refuses to start as soon as it's launched with this DLL injector. I've tried with a manually "placeholder" injecting DLL too and got the same results: As soon as IL-2.exe code is hooked, IL-2.exe refuses to work. It seems like IL-2.exe is using an "executable encryption" mechanism which relocates memory contents at runtime, therefor it doesn't qualify for use of DLL injection. Best regards - Mike
  12. Since it's a system file, it is always recommended to keep a copy of the file you currently have in a safe place. If anything goes wrong, you can always restore the old status then. Best regards - Mike
  13. Skylla did you try the kernelbase.dll files I've sent to you yet? Best regards - Mike
  14. Brief description: White jagged aliased lines around edges/surfaces of your plane in external (F2) view Detailed description, conditions: With clouds around and sun in your back, surface edges and thin lines (radio wire) appear jagged aliased and surrounded by white lines in external (F2) view Additional assets (videos, screenshots, logs): See attached screenshots Your PC config data (OS, drivers, specific software): Windows 7 64 Bit, Intel Core i5-2500K, Nvidia GTX 970, IL-2 graphical settings all maxed out ("ultimate" plus full AA). Click for full size: Best regards - Mike
  15. Ich wünsche Euch ebenfalls frohe Weihnachten und einen guten Rutsch ins neue Jahr! http://s22.postimg.org/9mbez5vn5/20141223_083246.jpg[/img] Viele Grüße - Mike
