Any thought to creating a Tactical Air War internal forum?  Pretty big at 202 pages.

 Sounds like a good idea - it has almost a cult following :)

(in 2 different flights Cool! Very fair indeed! So if you have a crappy internet connection - you better land after every sortie as fast as possible!

If you do sustain battle damage - hope you don't get disco'ed until after 5 mins.

 

Although this obviously hurts those (few) that have bad internet connections, it's the only way satisfy people (many) that want to penalize those that disco when they are in an unfavorable position. 

 

In one of the campaigns I suprised twice (in 2 different flights) one of the leading ground pounders, he immediately disconnected after receiving warning from his gunner before I managed to shoot him and he didnt' loose his precious streak an finished the campaign in very top of the board.

 

So even current regulations are not perfect, but watering them down would do no good,

I dont know if I missed the info: does the technochat is removed on this one?

 

No way to do that server side, at this point. Devs would have to make it an option.

Server didn't forget to kick me before that. I lost 1 AK of an I-16 due to it. At least it just read "In Flight". 

 

With the new stricter rules, is there a way to increase tolerance for network instability from the server - client connection? 

 

So that people that experience a lagspike won't be kicked right away please?

Yeah you need to look at that on your end. Google internet stability tricks may help  - or call your ISP.

Hi gents,

 

What are the bomber AI gunners skill set on?

LOL! I know where you are going with this - I don't think the issue are the server settings.

Gents,

 

I was really looking forward to this new season, however, back just from work and currently in my time-zone the ratio is 4:1 (20 against 5) in favour of the reds.  As much as I enjoy the server, I'm afraid trying to play with those odds is lame.  When I viewed the server last night it was 36 to 38 and I had hoped that this would be the norm across all times, but alas, I guess nothing has changed in my zone

 

Regards

Has anyone been able to get tracks to load from TAW? 

Before it used to not be a problem at all, now all I ever get is black screen.

 

Coconut expert also has this issue. WoL does not. The screen goes black after the loadup screen stops.

It's a  3.001 bug that seems to affect random servers and then also affects each player in the same way though, weirdly enough. Or at least that's my experience.

Funny thing, now when the numbers on the server are more or less even (and its not as usual 40 blues to few reds), the reds are loosing more plains and pilots...

Of course, more meat to die in the grinder. Especially that we have the flying coffin aka I-16. They even modelled pilot tears when flying it. Oh wait, it was raining.

hehe yup I know.

 

Anyway I was reffering to all those blue players who while flying in big numerical advantage were suprised that blue side looses more planes while flying more sorties in respect to red side flying less sorties.

When I try to join the server It is just a black screen, then back to the multiplayer screen. This happens no matter the player count. Any suggestions? I can join any other server just fine. I have registered on the TAW website as well.  

 

EDIT: It seems to have randomly started working. Just joined. Hm...:huh:

Cold starts are pretty damn annoying if you wanna fly a peshka 35 (which is also the transport).. been a few occasion me and mates getting kicked idle while trying to get the engines to even start.

Cold start is simply starting the engine and let it run until oil and water got some temperature right? Or did a do it wrong?

The problem with the Pe-2 s35 is that the engines most of the time just stop when trying to start (similar to the mixture bug with the Hs 129, but it's because they are just too cold to start), so you have to retry the whole start process 2 or 3 times (including waiting for the pilot to switch off and on the electric power switches, which isn't neccesary in this situation), sometimes it takes long enough that you get kicked while waiting in the spawn.

It would be easier if the player could operate some of the basic engine start controls like magnetos, fuel valve and engine starter, so restarting the engines after they fail is done quickly (the other needed steps like manually pumping fuel was done earlier during the first attempt) , with the automatic start process it turns off all the electric controls (and then turns them on again) taking extra time.

110 you need to start so, that first start one engine and as soon it starts give it some throttle and then deselect it and then start the other one the same way. Otherwise it will stop. Don't know if Pe-2 is the same way.
