  1. Why should the P-40 E-1 be a pretty competitive aircraft? Later versions were better but by all accounts it (E-1) just wasn't, When used (historically) at end of Moscow campaign not too bad but outclassed during Stalingrad Cheers, Dakpilot
  2. With the lengths people go to gain an advantage it would seem that CloD type Spotting is not something to be put on a pedestal as ideal to be emulated. Does Bos alternate have the same issue running low res? Cheers, Dakpilot
  3. I read (somewhere) game studios research showed demos actually harmed sales overall, in many cases, hence the lack of effort in producing them nowadays Cheers, Dakpilot
  4. Is it possible to run CloD Blitz in 640x480 and be an uber spotter? I heard this was a popular exploit in original CloD and IL-2 46 etc. Cheers, Dakpilot
  5. We don't need anecdotal evidence of how "strong" the P-47 was there is really only the science of materials and construction methods all of which are available. We also have many anecdotes of R2800's legendary strength and damage resistance but few people can answer me what the difference is between an R2600 or even an R1830, ASh M82 or BMW 801, was it the 18 cylinder config vs 14 or 9 or the larger capacity better? some other 18 cylinder radials don't have the same reputation or is it just that there are more R2800 anecdotes 😎 Perhaps we should look at why the P-47/Double Wasp should have their reputation with facts rather than anecdotes Cheers, Dakpilot
  6. Maybe worth a look at Intel XTU and HWbot Eplained in the vid above not exiting but persevere.. Very useful info Very useful to compare other people's settings and record/track your own, with the same hardware and the ability to adjust settings without millions of trips into the bios https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000006022/processors/processor-utilities-and-programs.html Cheers, Dakpilot
  7. Having flown and trained as part of multi crew ops in war zones I think you underestimate how well a team can function with practice and experience, when you fly and live together and your combined actions effect real outcomes. Communication and situational awareness moves to the next level when you gel (and train as a team.) perhaps not quite the same as friends deer hunting (not intended as belittling) Not entirely relevant to all of the above posts, but it is an interesting point, also a team that does not 'gel' can be at a big disadvantage regards efficiency, I have also flown in this situation and it is horrible Cheers, Dakpilot
  8. So what happens when you run at low res.. 720p or such And people will (if it benefits them) no matter how horrible it looks Cheers, Dakpilot
  9. How do you tell what settings are used before joining a server? Cheers, Dakpilot
  10. I don't really understand "pixel hunting" Spotting aircraft is hard IRL I have literally spent hundreds of tense hours scanning for aircraft, it IS hard and a learned skill that improved over my career. It should not be easy in the sim either. Cue cries of "harder isn't more real".. But easier is always more real either.. Just easy 25 k Spotting of fighters in any situation other than a very lucky glint of light on cockpit in very perfect conditions is totally unrealistic Seeing contacts at 40K and accepting this , seems to be an indication that many people want to play a different game than the Dev's are trying to produce. Suddenly expecting the issues of 2d monitors/screens to be resolved and expecting to be able to not use zoom seems very unreasonable, not the fact of wanting that, but just ignoring the reality of tech we have available to majority of users Cheers, Dakpilot
  11. Perhaps they need to sell some more new shiny aircraft to pay for the right guy Even so it has been explained several times by Dev's why this is such a hard proposition, and something they know about and would love to put time into Cheers, Dakpilot
  12. I hope they put the 3D modellers to work immediately to fix the netode That should go well Cheers, Dakpilot
  13. 49" LG 4k TV My evolution was 37" sony , Sharp Aquos 40" 1080p nd then the LG Cheers, Dakpilot
  14. Is not the big issue people are having with alternate is that you CAN see everyone at 40km and that is why people say it is unrealistic Too good is too good, not better? Cheers, Dakpilot
  15. The intent has already been mentioned by the Dev's, Li-2/DC-3 /C-47 as possible next project after Po-2 So hopefully... Cheers, Dakpilot
