Had the same issue with Steam. I downloaded the installer from il2sturmovik.com and installed using that and it works.

Then you say that I downloaded the installer from the official page and installed everything from there ?, and after that never again executed it from steam? Explain to me how you did please and now how do you execute it ?, I thank you very much

I think you would be better off doing a fresh install on the SSD. Don't forget to back up you Input file and any  custom skins you may have on your original install, so that you can just copy them across. 

I wonder if I could use a symbolic link from the skins folder on the SSD to a skins folder on an HDD, so that SSD space is reserved :P

Since this takes place on file system level, it will definitely work.

Login to il2sturmovik.com, go to https://il2sturmovik.com/download/ and click the  Download link. Run the installer, install it to some folder, then run the Launcher.

I don't use Steam anymore to run BoX.

 It could save you a lot of time and GB.

Yes. I. Did. Spent the whole release evening trying to run the game in every possible way I could imagine :D

 

Edit: I also provided info to the support, I hope that helps others who have issues with Steam installation not starting.

If I did it and nothing happened, it verified and they are all ok, there is no case ... Bos said that he downloaded it from the game page and then from where he executed it?

After installing via the Launcher, I ran the game straight by running the Il-2.exe.

Can anyone please confirm?

-- tracks saved prior to 3.001 cannot be loaded and replayed;

-- in career mode, time compression doesn't speed up anything (it still works in quick missions with the same difficulty settings).

 

Time Compression does work, currently in the Career I think it is limited to 2x.

I also found that I could not get compression to work but then I watched Sherriff try Career mode in one of his videos and get 8X.

I like the 140 K landscape, it got rid of that circle that distracted you from the enjoying the flight, but i'm really  disappointed in the fact we still have a 10k aircraft pop in bubble  :huh:, kind of sad really to put that much effort in the land scape and not put any effort in fixing one of the most problematic MP issue:wacko: 

 

Same to me, but I didn't get rid of the circle, are there settings to make the transition smoother? I'm playing on a 40" 4k screen, GTX 1080ti, Win10 latest, I always have difficulties to find enemy a/c, that got better with the update, now I can see them at least without zoom as small dots, but if I zoom in, they get smaller and almost invisible. No, I dont need glasses...

 

Back to the circle: There is always a still quite hard transition and especially if I zoom in, the popping trees are annoying and not very immersive. 

There must be problem with the antialiasing too, even on full AA I have glittering and flimmering on the edges. I reinstalled completly, no improvment, driver is the newest.

 

But still a great update. Just change the popping in trees and planes, PLEASE!

Hello,

1. I cant find the button for "aerobatics" in german: "Kunstflug" to fly with smoke.

2. And the next problem i have is, that the Servertool doesn't save my Gameoptions, so i have to change these in the MDS-File with an editor.

In the old campaign time compression could only be set to 2X and 4X. Now it can be set to 8X as well, but none of the settings seems to have any effect. You have the value displayed, but (at least for me) the game is not speeded up.

Yet you clearly understand English. Why not use the subtitles?

There are still a lot of texts missing a localization.

 

In career mode the intro texts are not in the the language you chose in the settings.

Have you checked all of your game settings? The subtitles are working fine for mine. Maybe put a bug report?

Having been forced to find a new flat and moving to it the last 2 months left me with extremely little testing and flying time. Now that I somehow downloaded the update with our limited connection I really gave to say: great work! Sure some things need quite a bit of polishing but this is so going into the right direction! Thank you for this! :)

 

Ps: Multiplayer fps performance correlation seems to be a lot less pronounced now. Was flying with over 60 players in Berloga yesterday and fps stayed more or less consistantly high! It was breaking down above 40 before.

I too need them, in English not in Japanese (other than for Japanese speaking people that is ;-) )

Yes, I think so but I shall try again, same for the "objects markers" nothing on the screen maybe I am selectively blind? :salute:

I know on one of my missions the object markers were not visible when they were supposed to be on. The map was still there though. I brought back the markers by pressing i key.

I'm really loving the patch so far. the Communication system in-game probably needs a bit of work to fit with the new Career but it's honestly incredibly how far IL-2 has come since launch.

Finally, last night I have tested the update. So far so good. No problems at login, fps similar to previous version (70-90). The improved horizont looks great! Almost no haze (a tiny line in the horizont but that's all). Little microstutters at the start of the mission in QMB but I had these also in 2.001. No problem in multiplayer, except that all the servers show 0 for ping value. Some of the add ons for the planes blocked but that may be the servers settings. :biggrin:

i am on 3.001 from this morning . Everything is smoother and nicer as far as graphics are concerned ( fluid-sharp-solid FPS-no tearing, JOY only. I am on ULTRA settings)

My install is on my HDD, but now I'd like to put it on my SSD.

 

Can anybody tell me what's the procedure?

Is it possible ?

Or, shall I have to download the game again and install it on the SSD ?

 

Thanks for Your help.

 

Madcop:biggrin:

 

 

Drag and drop.  Then make any desktop icon point to the new location, and any other profiles that start up with the game.

So far so good for me I am happy to say, no drama with the update as such. :cool:

Started download at 16:00 or so on release day and it was still going after 19:15 so I left it as I needed to go out, returned home later and fired it up all seemed okay so went to bed.

 

Took a quick look at the A-20 next day, wow, gorgeous.

 

P-39, again lovely, got to love those wind down side windows, I know, sad I am. :rolleyes:

 

I do not do online so thankfully so have avoided the grief those guys have had, seems the Battles series always had issues online anyway before the new update but now looks a nightmare for MP, hope they fix things soon for you guys.;)


My game struggles with ultra so I have it set below and it looks good enough for me, did not see anything to complain about in the few short tests I did.

 

Finally had a look at career last night, Ju-52 in Stalingrad, at last a chance to use the aircraft since I tried those few missions from Gambit I think.

Most of the night was spent reading the profiles and trying to get it to work, seemed I was continually pressing buttons until I eventually got a mission to fly, however, it changed my character, what gives?

So, to the runway and off we go at last, into the sky.  Find the way point set auto stabilizer and enjoy the ride I hope. (I struggle to fly due to nerve damage in the neck and arm so go easy on me)

 

Get to the forward base, drop the load, come home.  It works, landing icon invites the landing, return way point icon comes up when your done and away we go, happy days.  Trouble was two La-5 decide to spoil the trip home, how I got home I do not know, ducked and dived and turned for all its worth, rear gunner takes a few chunks out of the opposition as I try to make him sick with all the wobbling, but hey eventually they break off and back onto auto stab to give the arm a rest.

 

Managed base with a battered wing, landing icon flashes and there we are back where we started.

 

There followed more clicking as different flights came on the screen, new days dawned and eventually another mission loads ready for another time.

Not sure if all that is a bug in the career or if pilots did actually wait a while to be rostered for a flight, seems odd in a war zone to me, weather issues stopping you flying yes, maybe they had more pilots than aircraft so you waited your turn.

 

So at the moment no real issues for me thankfully, sad to know many have, really annoying for them and while the team said there would be issues disappointment among so many cannot be good, hopefully fixes will come quick for them.

 


Anyway, I for one am happy enough with the update but I use the game far less than others so I might become a little more disappointed as I delve deeper, I hope not though.


Take care.


Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

Thank you so much, Sneaksie. Really, thank you addressing this. I've said it before and I'll say it again. You guys are the best developers out there in the FS genre. Really, you guys truly are as no one compares with regards to community involvement. 

 

I do have one more question if you'll entertain it regarding the new career mode? Feel free not to answer of course.

 

Is there any plan to include the option to create your own custom squadron? I was hoping to fly my modern/WWII hybrid version of a Soviet Naval Squadron.

 

It was always in the plan. Lack of time. Sorry Det no custom squads.

Hello Custard

 

Thank you for the tip. In the FAQ they say I can install it "Where I want...". Does this mean that I am not obliged to install it in my (SSD) C/Program Files(x86) but e.g; in

 

C/Users/Admin/Documents ?

 

And now, once the game download is installed in my C (SSD) how am I supposed to install my BOS-BOM-BOK,  collector aircrafts and campaigns...that I already have on my HDD install ?

 

Is the Launcher going to recognize me and install them for me on my new game ?

 

Sorry, but all this is a little bit confused to me.

 

I have  279Gb free on my SSD , so I don't think that my ( as today) 27Gb game can hurt .

 

Thank you very much for your time.

 

Madcop :biggrin:

Hello von Tom.

 

Thanks for your  help.!

 

If I have it clear I just have to copy/paste or Cut/copy my E (HDD) / Program files(x86)/1C Game Studios/ IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad(27.8Gb) in my newly created folder in C(SSD) /

 

Program files(x86)/1C Game Studios. ?

 

I then have to change or create from the "new" bin/game, new Desktop shortcuts for the Il-2 Exe and Launcher Exe?

 

Is that as simple as that.? Anything other to do ?

 

May I also keep my HDD install ?

 

Thank you very much for your time .

Great work guys, a real step forward for this title.

Upgraded this morning and it went faultlessly, even my joystick bindings stayed the same which must be a first.

Only had time for a quick flight before work but immediately I noticed how much better the graphics were. Using TIR the panning is smoother for me with no stutters even though the definition is higher.

I used to place you guys and CoD about the same level but lately BoS just seems a lot more realistic (whatever that really means) and with the fantastic lighting and atmospherics sometimes I forget there's a war going on and just marvel at the way light hits the smoke trail of my vanquished foe...:rolleyes: 

 

The only possible improvement I can see is to up the activity on the ground and give a real impression of an epic battle going on down there in the smoke and chaos. I know we're probably years off getting the domestic hardware to be able to get a chaotic battle with hundreds of units slugging it out in the air and on the ground, but one has to dream...;)

That A-20G is pretty awesome to fly. The P-39L is awesome too. Nothing like taking and entire wing off a 109 in one shot with the 37mm.

Ok I just started the campaign as a mig in Moscow. I run it on high with 150 km and a couple of other settings ticked. Also, the difficulty was custom with only icons and the campaign settings were moderate difficulty and medium activity. The mission was to escort a load of Pe-2s, the FPS is saying 60 but the game is literally running at half speed even if I turn the HUD and Icons off.  If I increase time compression it stays at the same speed. I have an AMD 8350 and GTX 970.

 

Anyone else getting these slowdowns even thou the FPS is high? Any advice? Defo seems like massive bottlenecking. It is unplayable.

I had that happen as well, not sure if I hit a button or something that caused it , but the map got all crazy - was in a Career mission and it totally lost all the markers and lines and like it was enlarged big time. It was the last mission I flew yesterday so hope it will be back to normal when I resume the career.

Try to decrease the quality of clouds. Visually they remain the same but adds to your performance.

Reduce the distance to 100km, it will help also, and it is enough.

 

if using monitor: Switch ON 4k textures, and Vsync ON, and Fullscreen off.

 

more will advice others.

Ok but they all seem like graphics things. I have a solid 60 FPS but a slow in game speed. I think it is due to the amount of AI. I mean 10 Pe-2 and all the enemies. I will set the front line density to scattered and see if that works.

Hi Madcop,

 

You can install the program where you want but I normally would install it in " program files." This is my install for example ("F:\Program Files\1C Game Studios\IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad) With regards to collector aircraft they are bound to your account as well as any additional campaigns you may have purchased. If you have installed custom campaigns, then you would need to back these up along with any custom skins and your input folder.

 

When you install the program and log in with your credentials anything you have purchased will be available.

 

Hope this helps?
