Requiem, could you consider making a video on how the navigation equipment in german aircraft works? It does work, right? Unlike russian planes with the RPK where you follow the needle it's more complicated and I don't know anywhere where how it works has been described.

I have never bothered using the nav equipment in the game as I just used pilotage/dead reckoning. I think the nav equipment is limited in functionality right now in terms of frequency selection (someone can correct me if I'm wrong as I'm not 100%) and I don't know if multiple transmitters for one side are possible, so unless your airfield has the transmitter you won't make it home by using it.

 

Chuck's guides may have better guidance on this or even some of the guides in Cliffs of Dover as well come to think of it.

Great videos

1 thing tho, i have found the Ju-88 Soo much easier to taxi if you leave the prop pitch below 10% while taxiing (kinda like a beta mode)
It reduces the excessive prop wash and makes steering easier imho.

navigation equipment in german aircraft works?

The Lorenz navigation in German planes just guides you to the nearest friendly airfield as witht he Russion RPK.

There's no way to select another frequency for other airfields.

It's prop RPM that you're setting in the Ju 88, not prop pitch.

I am a bit confussed between the ralationship between the TrackIR profile and the F10 function (Save current corrections in head snap position).

 

For example in the Fw190 I had a terrible view and then I saw that other people where like sitting a bit farther backwards and therefore had a better angle of view and that minimize the metal frames in the cockpit. I tried to modified that problem and after spending more than an hour with the F10 and testing different TackIR profiles, I manage to do it. It seemed that my old TrackIR profile (Smoothdead_zone_IL2) did not have the forward/backward axis and I could not move my head backwards.  :(

 

Somehow, I got it right now with Requiem 2014 profile and with the F10 but I just do not understand how the F10 works. Could someone explain that function to me?  :wacko:  If I move my head forwards to check the dashboard, I need to use the zoom in option to really get a closer look.

Thanks in advance.  :)

When setting a view (and saving that view with F10) I disconnect TIR first. Then with ins-home-del-pgup-pgdw-end  buttons I set the view, save it and reconnect TIR.

Connect/reconnect TIR can be achieved by F9 (I believe that's the default, not sure).

Multiple beacons for one side are possible if the mission author has provided them. If a mission contains multiple beacons then the indicator in the plane will show the bearing to the nearest of the friendly beacons. Those that want to create missions with multiple beacons can find all information in JimTM's mission editor manual (https://forum.il2stu...anual/?p=413193), pages 58 - 59.

Just putting it into the profile in the TIR folder wont work %^(

you need to put it into the folder in your users folder

 

user/your user profile/Appdata/Roming/Naturalpoint trackir 5/Profiles

restart your TIR and it should be in there
