A buddy of mine tried to play TAW with me for the first time the other day and got kicked after about 5 mins and then could not find the server on the dogfight server list again.

We confirmed his TAW profile matches his IL-2 Great Battles player profile, he restarted his machine but it still wasn’t there for him. He could see the other multiplayer servers, just not TAW. Never seen this before, any ideas?

 Yesterday there was an update and all the servers had to stop and restart maybe it was in that time or after one mission finished

I don't have an issue with chute shooting or ground strafing being possible because frankly it was a real thing. 

 

It's unfortunate that we don't all have custom skins in game so that we could learn to identify the chute killers/strafers. 

 

While I make a point to never do it myself, I'd sure as heck be happy to return the favor to a known chute-shooter or strafer.

@666GIAP_Chimango There is, unfortunatly for you, few chances your dream of shooting me (and my "croissants") on chute come true. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

No no, not because I'm invicible, not at all. Just because with the balance of teams, I think i'm stuck to fly in the red team :sleep: LaGG3 is pretty fun to fly though.

@=LG=Kathon  a new german tanks column just spawned when axis had no tanks  669 / 650   mission 185

 

Thanks for reporting this, it's a script bug: tanks convoys are generated and in the next step limits are checked. The limits should be checked first.

 

BTW: I couldn't get out of my head your capture issue over friendly territory during the mission #120. I checked it one more time and it turned out that it was enemy territory. You bailed out from the Mig (Allied, red side) over sector 2320.4.1 There was a Axis defense a few km nearby but in the Mission Editor Axis units are red and I wrongly assumed it was friendly territory:

interesting, i'm pretty sure that was north of the tanks shown here, but i guess the second check have solved the issue right? ;)      still about the rule, since it seems like it's possible, why should someone have a possibility to get captured behind friendly  lines? it's to fix some exploit or just cause it is what it is?

I think there are 300 - 400 meters, no less

The side of a small square is about 3333 meters

Yep, there is still room for improvements. The closer to the front line you are the lower probability of capturing is. Added to my "to-do" list.

Yes! Precisely, I was very confused when my gunner said “target destroyed” without firing a shot and my bomb didn’t hit the ground target. I only figured it out after I landed, looked at the mission log, and saw the 100% damage I dealt you in one second. 
 

That’s some dedicated target defence from you.

It happened just about a sec before a “bomb” hit your Pe2 from bellow...;)

and just before that, i saw a black torpedo come on me and i thought for a sec...”pfff it was close”...

i guess it was the bomb time delay or the lag that make 1-2 sec to boom...

lol

look from my “point of view”...:)

Perhaps you could ask Donkey about how he set up ours?

Hi All, I hate to bring up a subject that has been covered many times before, partially due to the rules changing over time.  Tanks.  Do the stats matter regarding tanks available.  I know it's no longer a win condition on it's own, but this evening we took the last tank icon off the Axis side of the map and the stats show allies have destroyed 814 of 800 Axis tanks available.  The new map rolls and spawns a new Tank icon, with the stats showing 814 destroyed of 800 available? How can they spawn tanks if none are available? I would fully understand if their depot built tanks and their available tanks increased but that didn't happen here. 

Please help me understand?

To expand on that question,

@=LG=Kathon On/after mission #201, the Axis ran out of tanks, 814/800. Next mission, #202, a new tank column spawned.

Maybe fixes are for the next campaign? Anyways, thanks as always!

Kathon has mentioned there was a bug in the script.  I.e. it was generating the tank column then checking the # tanks destroyed against the max, instead of checking the counts first.  So he’s aware, but it’s not clear when it will be fixed.

now fuck off.

you had 3 guys on you that have seen you disconnecting when we started shooting at you, that excuse is pathetic, not like you took off about 3 min before and you had things not running ;)   not even close, but surely i'll try that exploit next time, i learn new exploit every day from smart guys like you! enjoyable.

and admins, why dont we add that ALT-F4 trick in the manual too? that could save the last life to a lot of people!
