Update 2.005

 
Dear Pilots!
 
The work on version 2.005 is finished and we present it to you. It doesn't bring as many changes as the last version did, but it does bring a new, long awaited Collector Plane – the Soviet Yak-1b fighter. 
.................
By community request, here is a short instruction on how to preserve key and axis bindings (for example, in a case of a complete reinstall):
 
1. You need to back up these files:
\data\input\current.actions
\data\input\current.devices
\data\input\current.map
\data\input\current.responses
\data\input\curves.cfg
\data\input\devices.txt
2. In case of installing from scratch, restore these files from your backup, replacing the existing ones.
3. This would work if you have the same controllers connected.
 
IMPORTANT: because of these changes, device mappings may mix up after updating to 2.005. In this case, exit the game and re-start it again. If this doesnt help, you can change device IDs in this file:
\data\swf\il2\storage\storeddevices.txt
Only exchange between the devices the parameter highlighted in red:
4,%221b3634e0-a831-11e6-0000545345440180%22,CH%20THROTTLE%20QUADRANT|

Hurrah!

 

Edit: Great aerobatics video, by the way!  (But was there a "Brown Trousers" moment during the spin recovery?  ;)  )

14. A way to cheat without using memory hacking software by making an aircraft invulnerable has been removed;
15. A way to cheat without using memory hacking software by making an aircraft cockpit invisible for improved view without using memory hacking software has been removed;

 

 

Wow. Hopefully that covers it and there isn't anything else "flying around" which is not fixed...

We further refined FFB effects creating a wider range of vibrations for different situations such as firing guns, takeoff and landings and collisions or crashes. We also eliminated some delays in FFB when time is accelerated. And finally, we smoothed out the FFB effects for control surfaces. Working on it wasn't easy since these joysticks have significant individual peculiarities, but we do like the result, especially how the FFB effects work on the Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback 2 and the Logitech G940.

 

 

Can't wait to test this, MSFFB2 FTW!

Bug: Yak 1b doesn't start with engine cold. Quick mission, summer - engine doesn't start. 

 

Bug: All controls reset default. Lost all key mappings, joystick control mappings and sensitivities

 

Close the game, relaunch the launcher and try again.

After getting used to the cockpits of other fighters in the game, it feels strange to able to check your six so easily in Yak-1b  :biggrin:

Just took it up for a spin in QMB. It's really nice. Definitely top Soviet fighter now.

Is there a single thread that is not spammed by FW 190?

Just taken the new Yak up for a few practice circuits... easy to take off, no problems to land, taxiing is simple and easy.

Be careful with the rudder pedals whilst in the taxi... pushing them to far will release the tail wheel :)

No you don't. 

 

For some reason my controls were reset, but I restarted the launcher and now it's all back to normal.

Will there be a possibility to buy this plane via Steam?

Yes, you'll be able to buy this plane via Steam later.

Also you can buy it right now and you will have the option to receive a Steam key for this product after its release on Steam.
