Hi everyone,

  
My new channel is live and can be found at The Air Combat Tutorial Library

 

Releasing these videos would be a lot harder if I didn't have a few helpers who have been reviewing what I've been making so far for fixes and improvements, so thanks to Bill, Eric, Pete, Nate, and Robey for volunteering your time and expertise to help make these videos better! These new videos have annotations, which are buttons I've added to the video that you can click on. They are pretty obvious, so if you wanted to watch a certain section, replay a section, or skip something altogether, just click on it and you will be taken where you need to go.  Also, just for your info: Subscribers get emails as soon as the videos are made public and I update these sorts of posts later on, so if you like them please subscribe because it gives me an idea of people's interest. I enjoy the process of making them and knowing people benefit from them is very satisfying.

 

Anyway, I hope you like them and feedback is very much encouraged on inaccuracies/improvements/suggestions etc. I have a long list to make, but if there is anything in particular you want to see let me know and I'll see what I can do.

Six Degrees of Freedom TrackIR Profile 19 June 2014:Attached File  Requiem Jun 2014.zip   1.06KB   3834 downloads

This is a new TIR profile from me which I've tested in in BoS, CloD, and RoF, and I'm happy that with how it performs in all three sims. The big thing I've done is the implementation of slight deadzones towards the end of head movement to avoid you moving your head far enough to get the view stuck in position at the end of its range. It's hard to describe what I mean, but it's basically a hard deadzone mixed in with a soft deadzone to make looking around feel more natural. This is basically a whole new profile across all six axes, but I'll list the changes to three of the most important axes below:

 

Yaw - You will notice a change in the 'yaw' axis when you look left and right. It won't take you to the full 180 degree position in-game but will actually stop at about 150 degrees, so for example when you look left to check your six oclock the view won't let you see completely out the other side, and yet it doesn't hinder your ability to check six at all. This means that the axes are limited in their range a little bit, but to me looking around in-game actually feels like it is a head instead of pivoting around a point in the cockpit. I always disliked how looking to my six would inevitably show the entire back of the cockpit which made it look flat, so I really like these changes.

 

Pitch - Added the little deadzones, but I've made it easier to look up and down without the issue of getting stuck at the ends of TIR's range. Looking up is faster initially, but slower towards the end to make it better to check above you and as part of a high six oclock check. Looking down is easier so you can check the instruments you need.

 

X axis - Added the little deadzones and made it easier to slide left and right in the cockpit, but the deadzone on this axis is slightly larger to prevent the out of body experience you can have with the canopy open.

 

I use a speed of 1 and smoothness of 35 with this profile. Edit the profile as you please.

 

Defaults:

  • Center - Mouse button 5 (thumb mouse button)
  • Pause - CTRL+F9
  • Precision - CTRL+F7
  • Profile - CTRL+F12 (not enabled)
  • All axes - Enabled
  • Trueview - Off

Logitech G940 Controls Package 28 Nov 2015: Attached File  G940 28 Nov 2015.zip   359.07KB   301 downloads

It has a readme, a picture of the in-game control assignments below, the input map, and a Logitech profiler file which will let you use the modifier switch on the joystick so you get double the functionality from your buttons.

Aircraft Guides by Chuck:

Nice guides which cover different aspects of each aircraft in BoS.

http://forum.il2stur...aircraft-guide/

 

Cockpit Reference Cards by =RkSq=Lodebeard

Good guides to use on a second screen, tablet, or just printed off while familiarising yourself with the aircraft in BoS.

http://forum.il2stur...eference-cards/

 

SweetFX/FlightFX:

SweetFX/FlightFX is a neat utility used by many people to improve how the game looks without incurring a FPS drop. SweetFX is the stuff that implements the changes, but FlightFX is an external program which manages the usage of SweetFX much better. I prefer FlightFX because you just use a checkbox to turn SweetFX on and off rather than SweetFX where you need to add/remove the files manually. There are presets available so you don't even need to mess with the process of creating settings yourself, and many people recommend preset made by =Fifi= as being the best one out there.

 

=Fifi= SweetFX preset: Attached File  SweetFX_Il2_Fifi_settings.txt   1.83KB   1871 downloads

Here is an example of how BoS looks with Fifi's preset on and off.

Attached File  FX1.jpg   868.38KB   226 downloadsAttached File  FX2.jpg   1.12MB   180 downloads

 

For detailed instructions on how to use this utility go to: SweetFX and FlightFX to download it and get it up and running depending on your preference of how you want to use it (Manual = SweetFX, Auto = FlightFX)

If you are using FlightFX and experiencing crashing when the BoS launcher starts, disable SweetFX, re-start the BoS launcher, then enable SweetFX and you should be fine.

Thanks guys, I'm relieved you like the new style as I went through a few different revisions before settling on this one. There are still a couple of neat things to come in future videos which you will see as the more instructional videos (rather than just aircraft familiarisation) come out, so hopefully you will like those too ;)

Loved the vide, was really helpful! I didn't know what half of the gauges were for before :) Also, I never used pitch to lower airspeed in landings, I'll definitely give it a shot next time the servers are up :)

Hi guys,

New video today covering upright spins. Straightforward enough for most people here of course, but a necessary addition for the long term. I've also created custom thumbnails to go with my videos, so now I just need to work on the channel art a bit.

 

Enjoy  :salute:

Update 9 Feb 2014: Spins #2 - Inverted spins

Demonstrates recovery techniques for when the world turns topsy-turvy on you. It shows inverted spins, aileron usage in spins, and the interesting crossover spin where you transition from an upright spin straight to an inverted spin (an accidental result of a bad upright spin recovery).

Enjoy!

 

See the first post for the latest video.

Update 16 Feb 2014: Crosswinds #1 - Crosswind Takeoffs

See first post for video.

 

I've also been working on making a G940 download which includes a picture template, profile, and a BoS in-game input map together for people who use this system with trackIR (I've removed the snap views). It utilises the modifier button as I have that working, meaning that the joystick button functions are double up. The G940 download should be done by next weekend.

No worries guys! :salute:

 

The G940 package I've whipped up is added to the first post if anyone is interested. It has a readme, picture of control assignments, the input map, and a Logitech profiler file which will let you use the modifier switch on the joystick so you get double the functionality from your buttons. I don't really know if this package will work for people if they follow the readme, so if anyone is willing to give it a go let me know if it does or does not work!

 

Kankkis I wasn't able to use your picture as it didnt have enough spaces for controls so I had to source another one :(

Interesting control setup. It is somewhat similar to what I had before the control wipe a week or so ago.

I haven't had a chance to play in quite some time, but I will give your setup a go and see how it feels.

 

Nice video too btw.

 

Cheers man.
