  1. Maybe a silly question but have you actually set up all the individual controls in IL-2? You can't just plug and play.
  2. Yep, mindfactory.de is pretty good, there's also alternate.de which is okay.
  3. Easy, orange is the colour of explosions. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’ฅ
  4. This isn't exactly related to the OP's question but I'm going to post this before all the whiners start going on about the effectiveness of the .50cal because I can see it coming a mile off. Watch it before you complain about the .50s.
  5. Sounds like the joystick needs to be calibrated - but I'm no expert. Are you using Windows? If so, is the joystick working correctly in the Game Controllers section under Control Panel. (Find control panel in Win10 by typing it into the search bar.) Have you tried another axis to control throttle? I believe the TM TCA has at least 2.
  6. I feel my point still stands, maybe a better test would have been to use the same plane as the AI. But whatever, it's far from a scientific test and the fact they're being such a prat about it leaves me with scant sympathy.
  7. Yes it's kinda meaningless if they didn't then swap planes and do the same test again, I have a feeling they'd end up with the same result.
  8. To expound on what LuseKofte said, the module (it's not really a DLC as it can be standalone) is in early access and new installments come with most updates the Great Battles series continually receives. As new features and content are created they are added until the module is "finished"* and ready to be officially released. *I say finished in quotation marks because the series is constantly being worked on and updated so it's never really "finished" per se, just being constantly improved.
  9. Always great and exciting when users make outraged posts about something where the information they have is wrong and they have know idea of the process/work involved. Probably a manager... ๐Ÿ˜
  10. Ah good to know, it's fun learning dialect words. I think I know a few... what is the plural? Grรคntler? Ha ha, I didn't think so. ๐Ÿ˜…
  11. Dude your English is great! ๐Ÿ‘ Your German however... ๐Ÿ˜‚ "Grantler" verstehe ich gar nicht, der Rest hab ich "interpretiert". ๐Ÿ˜… Yeah when I was working on the subtitles I got a couple of (German) friends to help me with some of the really tricky bits (where there were originally limited or no subs) including the bit in (I believe) the same scene when one of the Stukas is going down with a dead pilot and the gunner is yelling something like "(unintelligible), mehr Hรถhe!" and my friend is pretty sure that guy and a lot of the Germans in the scene where they're trying to get the crew out of a damaged, landed He 111 are not native speakers and (to him) sound English. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ But yes, it sounds like Schpittfeuer to me too. So watching that film when the Hurricane comes out... PS: I believe it's spelled Tschรถrmรคn. ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚
  12. Interesting. You kinda gave me the impression of an English speaker who knows a smattering of German and had assembled German words resembling Spitfire (fire being correct of course). I've seen BoB in English but the German bits are still in German (I actually made my own translation subtitles for the German because all the ones I found on the net were so inaccurate) so I know the bit you're talking about but I don't think it sounds like Spritz myself. Then again you Bavarians have such a strong dialect who knows what you understand! ๐Ÿ˜‚ At least you make the best Helles. ๐Ÿบ GrรผรŸ Gott. ๐Ÿ˜‰
  13. I think it should be more along the lines of Spuckfeuer. Spritzen is squirting (or an injection) so if you've got Spritzfeuer I recommend you visit your doctor. (He'll probably give you a Spritz and it'll clear right up. ๐Ÿ˜‰)
  14. It's actually quite a significant improvement, I was very surprised and pleased. Yeah you do need a second sound card or audio device. I have an audio interface for my speakers plus my VR HMD provides another audio source so I use my motherboard's onboard sound card for Simshaker.
