  1. Had this long time ago. Not sure if this was the real cause, but it seemed to go away once I changed the way Windows can manage energy to my USB ports. Short answer, I went to Device Manager and selected the USB ports and hubs used by my joysticks, and on each one accessed Properties, selected the tab Power Management and unchecked "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power". Never happened again after this change, maybe you get lucky as well. Cheers.
  2. Guys, I've made this little app back in the RoF days, and adapted it to IL-2. If you want to try it, just download the package here. I've provided the source code (made in AutoIT3) for those who are suspicious about running an .exe directly (so they can compile it themselves, using AutoIT - free). The zip package contains two executables, one for native IL-2 and other for Steam version. To "install": If you use the "native IL-2" version, put the files BoS_background.jpg and BoS_Selector1.00.exe in the IL-2 main folder. If you use the Steam version, put the files BoS_background.jpg and BoS_SelectorSteam.exe in the Steam/IL-2 main folder. You can create a link for the .exe on your deskop or place of choice. After you call it for the first time, it will create a BoS_Selector.ini file on the game's folder, and will present you with this interface: The option "Clear logs" do what it says - before entering the game, it clears all logs (so your logs doesn't grow forever). The option "MouseJail", if marked, will bring up a window so you can point the program to MouseJail's location (if you use 2 or more monitors and sometimes play as a gunner, this is a must to avoid your mouse going outside your gaming monitor). The option "Mods on" is the one you'll tick when wanting to play with mods on, of course. After doing your ticks, just click on "BOS Default" to play the vanilla game, or PWCG to play it with logs on. When playing "BOS Default", it will have logs off. The "Update" is there to call the game's update function, in case it's needed. The program remembers your choices for the next run. Hope this helps. Cheers.
  3. Late to the party, anyway, thank you Gambit for all your work on this sim.
  4. I'm one that surely would use it instead.
  5. Edited the info.txt and put the G4 as a requirement. Recompiled. Only mission 2 is missing now... will check the Mission file and see if I can identify what's different. Being stubborn pays sometimes.
  6. Hi samson, thanks for your response. Tried that (deleted compiled missions, altered Player plane on all missions to be G4 - using the editor - and then recompiled). No dice. Only mission shown is the number 15, which I've flown successfully. Oh, forgot to mention I also altered the info.txt to have &planes= <nothing> line. Found this tip on another thread. There's a detail hiding in the clouds that I cannot figure out. Anyway, it was worth the try. Cheers
  7. Hi samson, I was looking for Kuban campaigns and found Taman Bridgehead, but unfortunately I don't own the premium planes. Is there a way to change the player's plane to standard edition of Kuban (let's say, G4?). If so, what would one do? If not, all is well, thanks for letting users play your campaign for free. Cheers
  8. Fantastic. Already downloaded and waiting to get home to fly. Thank you for this. I'm also in for a key of U2VS or La-5FN2. 🛩️
  9. Nevermind Gambit, I found that the culprit is indeed a mod that I'm using that permits me to fly on the bombardier position. The crash occurs when I change bomb grouping from this position. If I change it from the pilot view, the game doesn't crash. Sorry for the false alarm. Next time I'll try to remember that I use mods on SP (and the first thing to do when facing errors is to disable them). Cheers
  10. Hi Gambit. First of all, I'm having a good time flying your campaign, thank you very much for this. Some small bugs happened so far, like once my entire flight (I believe it was in mission 6) took right instead of left in the last waypoint before attack and then suddenly despawned right in front of me. No problem, I went ahead alone and completed it. Today, I tried to fly the "swating nest" mission twice, and every time, right after bombing the hangars, when I tried to change bomb drop grouping (single/pairs/etc) the game just CTD - straight, no message or error. Windows event log said something about il2.exe causing Exception code: 0xc0000005. Strange that I tested before getting to this point in mission and changing bomb grouping was ok. Dunno if this is some bug or not, just wanted to report. Now, back to try it for the third time - this time I promise NOT to change anything, because the incursion time is long. Also, I thought that missions would be flown following the leader down to the deck through mountains, but until now every mission has a long ingress route flown above clouds (minus this one, which I believe is the #11 or #12). Anyway, excellent campaign, enjoying the hell out of the A20.
