    Promo Code ending today - PM to get it

    I wonder if I also got such a code - I own "Rise of flight". Where must I check?

    Purchasing the game difficulties.

    Hey, dog1 - I guess you can use PayPal, which is good for international payments. You'd even have a certain purchase protection; but you need to register with PayPal.

    Me 109 inverted engine

    According to the German article on that engine in WIKI, this is correct. An "inverted" V-engine was called A-Motor in Germany. If not chosen for other good reasons, the better pilot vision forward down was an important one. Paul Day, Spitfire Memorial Pilot in Britain, mentions the bad forward down vision for Spitfire pilots in his comparison of both fighters.

    Me 109 inverted engine

    Not more than the British fighters with the "normal" build, I guess...
  5. They couldn't really check their six with their seat belts tightened. When you sit strapped to the seat, you can just look back a little more than 3 o'clock/9 o'clock. It was important for them to have wingmen and radio com, and to co-operate well together.

    BOS , BOM , BOBP give away

    That is great fandom, BlackRaven; thank you for the offer. I'll queue up for "Battle of Bodenplatte" then! Would come handy, as I have to buy several other things, like a new monitor.

    BOBP+ Give Away Draw

    What a nice way to show your love to the IL-2 series and it's players! I'll go for IL-2 "Battle of Bodenplatte", please!

    Asymmetrical Dead Zone

    Did you check the curves behind each joystick input command in IL-2 settings? There you can have either a linear (straight), or an "s"-shaped curve. You can also adjust dead zones for the stick; I think that was under "input devices".

    I have no idea - maybe you try once, to mirror the setting?
  10. Wolfram-Harms


    Oh yes, it should do a lot. As AeroAce says, "tech chat" is what you get assigned at the right of your screen. The numbers should be changing when you press it. I had a problem twice after updates: the adjustment directions had got changed or mirrored. So make sure you know, what "up" and "down" really do.

    Repainting aircraft in WW2

    I thought the US aircraft were later just left unpainted, polished aluminium? As for the Luftwaffe: they also did airbrush/spray painting on their airfields. They had hand-pulled mobile compressors with 2 metal wheels for that purpose. Still searching for a picture...

    Village and Airfield Lighting

    There may be two aspects of the same thing: lighting here and there would sure add to the immersion. But on the other hands, it would also eat resources. The makers of a sim always have to keep an eye on that: what will the lower end of performance get? That must be a tricky balancing thing with MANY things to keep in mind. For more immersion, it would be cool though, if the airfield service barracks would have an open door for example, where some warm dim light is pouring out on the grass, like a "welcome back".

    Where are the skins?

    Naw, Pat, it's the other way round: I still "owe" you the skins for the other German Kuban units. A new job took away most of my spare time and energy; I rather wanted to fly than make skins in my free time. I have made 3 or 4 different camo pattern now, and I still intend to do skins for all fighter units. Later, when you received them all, I could simply download and install the packages like everybody else.

    WQHD - Can your graphic card do do it?

    Thanks, found it now. So I set my sim to WQHD resolution of 2560x1440. Then I set the NVIDIA DSR to 1.78x (native resolution), which should be the correct factor for my monitor (1920x1080). The test flight did not only run fine and smooth - I am also absolutely amazed of how fine the Anti-aliasing now appears! The aircraft and the buildings are looking phantastic!

    Where do I find that? Never heard of it...?
