You were trying to use the advanced plane A8 and not the basic A6/8.

Hi, your aircraft was damaged in 100% so in logs there is an AK (even if you were able to land on the airfield later).

The name of the aircraft is important. Fw 190 A-8 is not the same as Fw 190 A-6/8.

 

 

==============================================================================================================

The transport bug has been fixed. There shouldn't be an issue anymore after this #10 mission.

@SCG_geronim0 I have to tell you I find it incredibly odd and disturbing, that you find it sad that someone dosn't want to use some 3rd party invasionware like discord.

 

I don't need it, I don't want it and I don't want to be made to look like something odd for not wanting to use it ok? My computer my choice, I'm not rolling up it's sleeve for anything I'm suspicious of ;)

When I install discord I get problems with il2 game. i have to reinstall windows. when its not used I have zero issues took some time to figure out the culprit but after 5 windows reinstallation it was discord just sharing  my personal experience.  what's wrong with go old team speak?

I was only able to land a couple of minor hits on Polo wonder if the game logging is at fault.

I'm confused I see several players wit Il2 account names that have = - etc. at the beginning of their squad name but if you read the instructions on il2 profile page is says you cant put those characters at the beginning see image. 
 
Username

Use Latin letters, digits, hyphen-minus, asterisk, and underscore. The first character must be a letter or a digit.

Squad tag

Use Latin letters, digits, hyphen, comma, period, equal, slash, square brackets and underscore (not at beginning).

To whom it may concern:

 

I have two accounts 1 is locked the other is unlocked.  I need both removed so, I can re-register so I can join our sqd correctly.

 

LR.US28Hill (locked):  have password.

=310th=Crazyivano1 (unlocked)  issue: don't remember password

It would be helpful for me to JUST start over.

 

Thanks

I misunderstood how the career paths worked and was explained by an LG member how to go about "resetting" my account (by changing my current name and then re-creating my original account name) so I could chose the correct plane set.  I did exactly that and now it says my account is locked, so I cannot fly...

The way to change the account works only for unused accounts. When you enter the server with the first account, it stays until the end of the campaign.

Would like to know why the designers decided to prevent "password reset"?  I can still play online, but I'm unable to log onto the account stat page and view my progress.  Is there any chance they will improve the product, as the BIG world accounts have password reset abilities.

I think they're not including a password reset, because you don't really need a login for TAW. You can view anyone's stats, including your own by going to the pilot's page and searching for a particular pilot. Here's your stats:

The part about "(not at beginning)." that you are confusing only pertains to underscores _

You may use Latin letters, digits, hyphen, comma, period, equal, slash, square brackets (at the beginning)

It is only underscores that are not allowed, for example _617_Falcon100 is not allowed, but -617_Falcon100 is allowed.

 

I agree that this is not as clearly worded as it could be, but that is how it appears on the IL-2 website. The webpage will also validate your squadron tag or username when you attempt to submit, so it is impossible to make a mistake here.jKbHVc5.png

_ underscores are reserved namespaces in certain computer languages, so IL-2 devs don't want a squadron tag or username causing any unintentional errors somewhere.

I just want to say that I am really happy to see the server nearly full in prime time consistently, even on weekdays. I don't think it ever happened on the Western Front campagins, which was usually not as well attended. Kind of reminds me of the days when it was difficult to connect to the server due to it being 84/84.

It's been a really slow start for me this TAW, I found the time to get online yesterday and decided to try out the Me-110G-2, but in my hurry I forgot to check the server time and the mission ended just as I was taxiing to the runway :) 

 

I finally managed to get in the air today in an Fw-190A6 Jabo with 8 x 70kg bombs aboard and I made a successfull attack on the train at Wessel, took a few hits but nothing major and gave a few back adding up to 1 rail car, 1 transport and the AA halftrack that tagged me.

 

On the way back home I must have unwittingly overflown some trigger happy guy with .50 cal. It sounded like a couple of taps on the canopy as if someone was trying to get my attention, then the cocpit was in flames, so I bailed out as fast as I could...which turned out to be slow enough to have burnt off my guy's moustache, if I'd let him have one.

 

End result, I was caputred and that's probably my time window for today gone in POW camp :) 

 

Gotta love TAW :good:

 

The M2 that set me on fire got lots of entries in the log, but I think this was the fire damage rather than the 2 rounds that lit me up.

I did a quick search regarding this but didn't see anything applicable.

 

I think that I selected Messerschmidt for planeset but there are no 109s available at the start. Did I accidently choose Focke Wulf? I know that it says the planeset can't be changed but I have not yet flown. I think there should be the ability to see the actual planes available (before earning them through CMs) through the phases before hitting register.

Yes, you selected FW line because you have him 1/1 at start. Appendix 11 (full planeset table) says which aircraft, when, and how many of them you will receive at start, and then, how will look replenish order. 😊

So, there's no way to change a mistake? I would think that if you had not yet flown any missions that some latitude would be in order. I do realize that this is addional work but would appreciate the opportunity to change. 

 

And, the reference to Appendix 11 (full planeset table)... is this what you are referring to? https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1VMUjGaLMdVWLy0rPIgRz89GMn_zMEh2xsRG8smdkDD8/edit#gid=1589269113

 

It's not very apparent what planes will be available on this spreadsheet.

 

I just suggest that it be easier to actually see what you are signing up for before hitting the register button.

 

EDIT:

OK, I see that the reference to Appendix 11 is in the Manual. Perhaps there could be a link to this in the registration section for those of us that don't read everything available:

Still, I ask that I be allowed another chance to re-choose.

...also few big bombraids is needed.  5-15 bombers and escort...this could be arranged via private messages....otherwise we loose again...starting time...targets...etc...and volunteer escort (No reds allowed)

Just a quick post to say I'm really enjoying this installment of TAW (though of course there are always areas that could be improved on).

 

It's just such a different feel of gameplay to everything else. I flew one of the most memorable, stressful, and demanding missions I can remember last night, though you'd never know it from the sortie record: https://tacticalairwar.com/pilot_sortie.php?id=9227&name=diggun

 

BigGinger, TheDome, & myself were patrolling the north east area of the lines in a 3-ship, stooging around looking for trade. Eventually lead spotted a distant contact lower than us, which we started stalking and setting up an intercept on. Suddenly, seemingly out of nowhere, two FW190s come screaming down from above, slashing through the formation. In horror I realise that they're curving in on me. In a panic I shove everything into a corner, stand the Spit on her nose, and desperately split-s under them. By some miracle, they don't follow, but the others in the flight have spotted a new contact on our high 6. We climb away from it, into the sun, reforming on the way. Eventually losing sight of that far contact, we resume our box patrol. 

 

Before too long, Lead spots three FW190s a few thousand feet below us, down sun of us, on our three o'clock, heading in the opposite direction. A few turns later, and we're in an ideal position for a bounce. This is getting exciting. Lead calls the Tally-Ho, and we start the dive that will end in us blasting the oblivious formation below, when, suddenly, contrails! At least two, possibly three 109s pulling bright white contrails behind them, almost immediately above us. If we dive on the FWs, we'll be sitting ducks for the 109s to dive on us. Lead makes a split-second call, and we can hear the regret in his voice as we pull off from the 190s. But there's no time to think about that now, we've got to get out of there. We stuff our noses down and dive at full power to the West, hoping those high 109's don't follow. They look to be doing so for a while, but soon we lose sight of them. Just when we're trying to get ourselves back together, I have another minor panic attack when I notice a contact moving in on my six. It's definitely not one of us, and he seems to be trying to get low behind me. I call this out to the others, but they don't acquire this guy. I climb slightly, and put a cloud between us. I don't see him pop out the other side, so start to breathe a little easier.

 

We once again do the long slog uphill, and resume our box patrol. Things seem a little quieter in this area, but we are all feeling very paranoid after our scare earlier, and searching the sky doesn't stop. Soon enough we get a call out from our ground units further south, so we mosey on down that way. After a fruitless search, and getting light on fuel, we decide to head for home, touching down with 5 gallons remaining after 49 minutes airborne. 

 

One of the most gripping, tense, and immersive missions I've flown. And none of us touched the trigger.

Think about 20+plane formation...few mustangs or spits are welcome to mess around...

 

I Want to see escorted bombers going to target...some wont hit the target, some might get flak,  some get disco...spits attacking 109s tailing...thats scary...but thats war...one thing and only this is sure: No one is left behind!

Now its time to think, is this just flying around...or War!

A couple of questions...

 

I signed up for Zerstrorer with a view to flying the Bf-110-G2 kind of exclusively and I was taking the time to learn this plane when the map changed and now it's out of reach...see screen. So why was the 110 available in the last map and not in the current one and will it be available in future maps. I ask this as I need to make a choice about what I'm going to spend extra time on learnig to fly in a proper fashion?

 

Jabo Fw-190's have plenty of appeal too as does the larger stuff like He-111-16 and I intent to give the tri motor a few trips. But 109's have ver low appeal to me.


I just don't understand why you would call the line up "Zerstrorer" then remove the 110 on the second map. This not a complaint, just a question to help me plan my time.

Other thing on that screen shot is the cookie question. My answer is no I don't like cookies, at least not those I can't eat. So what's in the cookies and why should I agree to have them? This was asked before now and I've yet to see an answer.

 

Thanks.

It isn't removed. You have to earn CP to have it.

Yes that much is clear and I understood before post, so thanks but that's not an answer to any of the questions I was asking.

 

However for me it's now out of reach, so may as well be termed removed in my way of looking at it. Also at the rate I'm going I will never earn the gamey points required to unlock it.

 

Additionaly the definition of removed fits whats happend.

 

removed
 
rĭ-moo͞vd′

adjective

  1. Distant in space, time, or nature; remote.
  2. Separated in relationship by a given degree of descent.
  3. Changed in place.

You had 110G2 but you were captured. It's like after death, your hangar has reset and you only have basic planes at your hangar.

Ahh, that explains it. Thanks.

 

So I got captured after bailing out of an Fw-190 and I loose access to my Me-110 that I explicitly signed up to fly...wunderbar :rolleyes:

 

I now understand that the Bf-110 is not in the basic Zerstorer plane set (which I think defies logic)....wish I'd figured that one out before I started....too late now, I'll just have to run my Zestrorer campagin in an He-111 :lol:

Great fun :)

 

I just completed a paradrop in a Ju-52, first time I tried that outside of the QMB to see how it worked. So after gropping around in the snow to located the drop zone I finanly found it and dropped the paras right on it, circled to watch then go in and headed home.

 

Got shot up by those trigger happy allied ground troops with their M2 mg which makes low flying more hazzardous than it seemed to be before. Then after a while I was in sight of the base, when I realised that I'd took off from another aerodrome and that this was the one I'd flow out of last time :rolleyes: Just as well I noticed, but when you can only get 210 kph out of the machine, navigational mistakes like that cost loads of time.

 

1 hour 40 minuites after take off I landed at base. Didn't see one other plane the whole flight until I was on final approch and someone in a single engine pulled out and took off ahead of me (plenty of space), which was nice to watch as I came in.

 

I never saw any message about the paratroop drop, I assume I missed even thought it appeared to be on target.

 

5CP none the less was earned, add that to the 5CP from yesterday and I guess I should have my 110 back some time soon...all being well.

 

Having fun trying out some of the aircraft I don't normally use, like the Ju-52 and yesterdays hop in the He-111.

 

Edit...something went wrong...back to zero and dead as the proverbial dead thing :biggrin:
