Game still freezes when doing any form of window switching (task manager reads 0% cpu usage for 30 seconds to 2 minutes)

 this happened to me only on W10 so i came back to W7

How to get BOM on Steam

i tried some He111 bombing missions in BoM campaign and some of them are simply unplayable unless you are the masochist type .

Now, in some missions you have other He111 with you  and those missions are ok because they are providing some cover and the Soviet fighters will not focus only on your plane. But  solo missions are simply silly , you take off all alone with a lousy 109 as escort . If you make it to the target zone (sometimes they gang up on you quite soon after the waypoint , i guess it depends how far behind the enemy lines is the target) you will get attacked by four Soviet fighters .

I will upload a track as an example , over the target four Soviet fighters pop up, my escort is chased by two of them and the other two go after me, after some time the other two join  the party . I'm being chased deep behind German lines and, in the end, since they didn't managed to deliver some big damage one of them decides to go all kamikaze and finish the deal . This mission was actually quite lucky up to a point, most of the time they fire much better and take me down pretty fast .

Now...are we supposed to survive this kind of gangbang? If i'm a high rank pilot it doesn't mean i can take down enemy fighters with a bomber, a bomber is a sitting duck ,it needs better escort or other bombers around , this type of missions should be changed, in my opinion .

Here's the track :

You get this kind of mission in BOS as well. One He111 attacking a bridge, escorted by one Bf109. AFAIK it is always the bridge attack missions.

i know but the enemy fighters were harmless in BoS campaign, i don't remember being shot down by any of them ( maybe once or twice) and i did the entire campaign flying 111 .

 Now, i like being attacked by enemy fighters in campaign, i don't want the old type of enemies but this type of enemy attack in solo missions against a bomber is unplayable .

My impression is it is just randomness. I seem to get impossible suicide missions, far too easy missions, and anything in between. Probably rather realistic. Those impossible missions make me think about those poor guys that DID have to face it in reality...

An He-111 pilot wouldn't have flown a bombing sortie alone in reality.

Space-Ghost, everybody can share its opinion here to give a feedback and I truly respect yours, even if you are part of the few supporting the new sounds. Should I add that there would not be so much remarks on new sounds if they were that perfect ... Mr PalmSpace.  :rolleyes:

They will never be perfect, always someone will complain. And complainers are the loudest group always in the forums.

 

BTW, I like the new sounds. Much improved.

"...the few..." ??!! Wow!

 

From reading the forums the consensus seems pretty overwhelmingly in favour of the new sounds.

 

Still, when did facts play much part in discussions on flight-sim forums?

Solution: The mission briefing says the amount and type of aircraft flying with you. Don't like the mission it generates? Abort and generate another.

Actually i have to start the mission and abort on the runaway otherwise i get the same type of mission from every airfield . I hope the devs will find a constructive solution for these type of missions that are very hard with the new ace enemy fighters in BoM if you are a high level pilot in campaign . I suggest adding an extra bomber.

That's precisely what I'm doing - thanks for reaffirming that for me though.

Are all airfields on Moscow map designed to work in multiplayer? If no, why?

 

If yes: how to use this airfield in multiplayer? Where are spawn points (parking)? Where should we insert fakeairfield object in MissionEditor?

Below is similar airfield from Stalingrad map where spawn points for MP are clearly seen:

(You'd probably put your fakefield objects by the side of the runway, so there's a couple of metres of taxxing to get onto the runway itself. That's what I'd do, I think.)

 

Tallking of which - a question for the Devs:

 

For the fakefield and fakefield_rwspawn objects, would it be possible to add an option to the properties or advanced properties dialogue boxes to allow builders to choose how many aircraft spawn in the rows?

 

This would add a lot of flexibility for coop starts among other things.

Or better yet, choose the spawn points too. That way you could have aircraft spawn in the caponiers.

Not really a problem but i bought BoM yesterday and i noticed i still dont have the BoM forum tag. Why?

People told me that the tags are only for the guys who preordered.

So no BoM Tag for you or me. ;(

ok, i tried this kind of mission again , bridge bombing , one 109 escort - same thing happened only this time four  i16's showed . Same scenario : two went after my escort and afterwards joined the hunt , i'm being chased a long distance with heavy damage , some 60 km, i pass the way point, in the end one engine died and i get rammed by two Soviet planes in a row , one takes out a piece of elevator and the next one cuts off one wing , disgusting . What is the point of having this kind of imbalanced missions ?

 Not to mention the pack leader of the i16's sucked up some 50 bullets from my gunners without even leaving a trace of smoke or something,  just because he can :)

It is a radom generator. You will get random missions and some make no sense. That is the problem with being completely random. Quit and select another mission. Not sure why you persist and continue to post complaints when others have already provided the answer?! Especially in this particular thread.

 

Maybe it will get fixed in the long term but for now there is the above work around.

Wherever you go next with the series Im in.

 

 

+1

 

I discovered this because I am passionate games of the Eastern Front and the Great Patriotic War and more specially the opertation barbarossa, I presume that be difficult to please all players, each player has a front preferring another .
 
But Leningrad card would be interesting. thank you  ;)

I completely agree it can/should be improved. I suspect it will require a significant rewrite or we would have seen it already. At the moment it is a truly random generator.

Jason, for every problem there is a solution. Rise of Flight United, for example. :)

IL-2 Sturmovik United (Main Game where the tanks are only playable) + BoS (DLC) + BoM (DLC) + Collector Planes (DLC) = How this sounds?

This sounds like a good idea to me :)

ATTENTION

 

Due to mission format changing in update 2.004 - flight records which were recorded in previous versions will not replay after update.
