  1. La-5FN series 2 I like the Mig3 as I think its overlooked ,yet it has decent overall performance despite its flaws!
  2. Hoped it helped,I think I got my interest of aircraft from my dad,he had lots of books from the wartime on the RAF and the like,and he worked at RAF Alconbury (in a civil role) from the mid 60s to 1982 when he sadly died of a heart attack at only 52 . It must of been great to see the vast air armadas over east anglia during those times,funny to think that in this region of England during the war never before or probably EVER again will so many military aircraft be gathered together to see combat,between 500 and 1000 heavy bombers flying weekly must have been an awe inspiring sight!
  3. Hi I live near Huntingdon,Cambridgeshire (formerly Huntingdonshire),and have done all my life (nearly 50 now!),and my family is also local. My dad who was born in 1929 could recall getting to see the aircraft pretty close ,he died in 1982 so I cant ask him about it now,but I remember him saying this when I was young. As a side note he also said how drab (matt finish) the paint was ,nothing like the glossy paint we see at airshows now. These were all bomber command bases and 8th AF bases. RAF Wyton, Upwood,Warboys,Alconbury,Holme,Kimbolton ,Gravely all within 10 mi
  4. I see where you are coming from,but I think they have a seperate team doing the ground stuff....so this means all the fancy vehicle development should not detract from work on aerial features. Please correct me if this info is false,but this should allay your fears!
  5. I have always enjoyed looking back at replays of my sorties,this should make it more interesting...I look forward to it. I just hope it does not cause any slow downs or stutters in play.
  6. Had the same problem once,from memory I went into the CD/DVD and selected the "a" file .Clicked on that and it loaded up!
  7. He is right,just make all the boxes off by default (with an option to turn them on mentioned in the notes "manual",if you desire). When the much hyped Clod was first released years ago,this was one of the irritations that put me off the game,messing about searching the web to figure out how to get rid of them. In WW2 if the pilots kept seeing grey boxes all over, they would go and see the medic!! Its clutter that should be out of the way from the get go....no need to stress new players for nothing.
  8. Thanks for the gift ...it is much appreciated. All the best Sir Flappy👍
  9. HI Thanks for the kind gifts...il2 Tobruk would be great.....happy voting!!
  10. In il2 1946 (and earlier versions), if you had landed or crashed you could hit the bailout key and it skipped to an animation of you dumping the canopy then exiting the plane and running 50 yards before leaping to the ground. This was good as was said above if you were sitting in a burning plane!
  11. I think its fixed with the latest 4.008 update ,only tried on the Summer Kuban map,but the issue was not showing after the latest patch. THANKYOU to those that sorted this out!
  12. This has been a constant thing,never gone away with any update! If you fly around the port area you see the flickering (from this area only ....as in clip) ,when you get up close it goes. -Short film shows how it looks.....same for 1stCL/rudidlo I guess?
  13. Same here,I think it affected many. This is not uncommon after an update. I am not an expert, but I dont know of a way of getting your old views back.........but if you do re-do them, "backup" the settings by copying these files to some other folder (such as il2 BoS settings) . (in DATA) input snapviews ( to be found in LuaScripts) startup cfg. This way if it happens again you can save yourself the trouble of re-setting everything!
  14. Sorry to hear you and some others are still having a few issues ,for me with my RX480 (same driver as you) I dont appear to have any. After all the problems with the last update (4.006) ,this lastest one (4.007) seems to have resolved them. You could try my graphics settings to see if that helps...or it maybe is an issue with your particular card. It would be interesting to see if other AMD users with different cards are getting your bug?
  15. Just did a bit of longer flying with the DRF set to 0.6, (reduced res) and I found that NO scenery showed through ,but I did notice an OUTLINE (Pics below). - I retested with DRF set to FULL and NO outline showed up and of course no scenery. These test were longer than the original quick tests above! OK I will see about the Beta, although I am rather busy ,but I will try to help if I can. I will look back here later tonight ...if I have not heard anything I wont be able to check any messages till after 3.30pm on Tuesday. I only have a crap old mobile p
  16. ADDON INFO- Did a further test with the same reduced resolution settings BUT PUT BACK DRF SETTING TO MY ORIGINAL PRE-UPDATE POSITION ....0.6 and panning around with my Trackir over the town and other scenery NOTHING glitched through the wings or cockpit as before with this setting. Pics below (THESE ARE ALL WITH DRF AT 0.6) Sorry for caps..but wanted to highlight the important change of setting!
  17. Interesting findings- Spit IX Default skin/Kuban summer map The settings I was using are below ( 4th pic down..my desktop resolution), with these I get a faint black outline as you are aware (1st..top.. pic). I did as you said and lowered the resolution one step down to 1680x1050 and voila no outline around nose or wings. (2nd/3rd pic)
  18. We figured it out in the end (last few posts of mine above). As I may have said above I have never been a fan of FXAA,it just looks a bit blurry & less sharp than MSAA on my big 32"tv (not this games fault) ,but your right in the game it does eliminate the black outline. However I am happy to stick to 4x msaa for now,I can put up with the outline (as its hardly noticable). Thanks for your input though......I am just content to play the game now and stop fiddling with the PC. Never be afraid to suggest something that might help ( you make a good point about the set
  19. Thanks to you also for your ongoing support.....and the members of the community who helped.
  20. Just to add ,the game now looks fantastic. As an example here is a external view with my settings above. As you can see no black outlines are apparent......its only from cockpit view where you can see a faint black outline. This is a huge improvement and I can certainly live with it, obviously if no outline was present that would be perfect, but I am at least now able to enjoy the game in all its glory ....thankfully!
  21. Yes it is Dynamic resolution factor. My settings below - -with DRF on full no issue ,but black outline (2nd pic) -DRF set to 0.6 ,all the scenery showing through plane.(1st pic) Pics below. Good job you posted your settings yesterday m8!
  22. Yes its positive progress I agree. Its getting late for me now and to be honest I am getting tired! But this is good....so I will check each setting on saturday and find which one stopped it....I will let you know when I find out. I am working Sat morning so it maybe later in the day....I am as keen as you to get this sorted.....I just want to fly my WW2 birds ,thats all.....PCs eh youve got to love them!!
  23. Got a positive update for you in the other ATI thread. PS I am getting lost with these different posts....maybe its my age lol!
