  1. The Albatros should always be vs the Pfalz in my opinion. Shortens the odds for those not flying sausage-side.
  2. Wow, I'd forgotten about all that. I used to love those popcorn threads
  3. No, but seriously, I mean some fokker (or, more politely, Halberstadt) dropped a bomb on me as I spawned in.
  4. Off topic - but have you tried Condor 2? A long, long time ago I did some RL gliding and so was intrigued by Condor, but found the basic graphics off-putting, and I was not motivated enough to try the second iteration (there's only so much virtual flying I can do before I feel the need to shoot at someone), but it's lurking there.
  5. What would be interesting would be to compare what we think happens most to us to what actually happens most often. For me, I would like to think I usually crash as a result of a combination of wounds and controls shot away, but unforced bodged landings probably account for a high percentage. In fact I probably concentrate harder on landings where I've been shot up so I don't give the other guy a kill. Also, you left one out kotori - getting bombed/strafed on the ground
  6. Thanks for this - I am in exactly the same position. I also went round the houses to get the thing working. However I am still waiting for my GPU upgrade (from 1050Ti) to arrive, so when I say working I mean a 10fps, laggy working, so I'll be coming back to this thread to discuss settings etc soon
  7. That's the most relaxing view I've had of a DVII in quite a while
  8. It's not MS 2020, it's the virus. Let's face it, a lot of blokes have been in lockdown this year, which means their joysticks have probably taken a battering.
  9. And some not-so-top ones as well! I've had mine for 8 years
  10. Jason's just posted about the DM bug: https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/68222-game-version-4505-discussion-cockpits-in-4k-i-16-in-4k-other-changes/page/3/
  11. There is another side to this...Sometimes it's about claiming the kill and NOT necessarily about being vindictive to the enemy pilot. What I mean is that we've all had that situation where you disable (engine, controls, whatever) the other guy and know he's not a threat any more, so let him try to land out (you get the kill anyway, so why be a dick), and then some tryhard swoops in to finish the job off...So what I'm saying is that what might appear to be a personalized assault could well just be some sad sap like me trying to make sure I get the credit for my "work".
  12. IL-2 Sturmovik: Flying Circus - Volume I is part of the IL-2 Great Battles series of products and can be played as a separate stand-alone product or be integrated with other Great Battles titles such as Battle of Stalingrad, Battle of Moscow, Battle of Kuban and Battle of Bodenplatte. Combine all titles to create one big WWI and WWII air and ground combat simulation. Well, this is what it says on the store page, so unless they're outright lying you don't need an extra purchase. In terms of D/L and installation, you should get the whole Great Battles package with the D/L, but only what you've paid for is unlocked to play - in this case FC1. A quick check shows my installation to occupy 44 GB.
  13. Yeah, and to be fair I see very little aggro in the chat - the occasional ram- or shoulder-shooting-complaint - but no sledging, or any of the sort of toxic language which you might see in a mainstream game.
  14. Okay...hopefully you'll be in that chute The thing is you questioned specifically what happens in DiD events, where "dying" early, or through chute-shooting could cause player-disengagement. My point was that "dying" in those events, through "chute-shooting" or otherwise is actually part of the attraction.
  15. Say what? Read what I wrote. I said it was a reasonable action in those specific DiD campaigns, not BoX in general.
