Developer Diary, Part 55

Recommended Posts

The new update loaded fine for me in about 4 minutes. My experiences with the Stuka thus far; My MSFF2 would not work at all until I exited and reentered the game and now it functions, although without FFB. The siren Mod is locked for me. I was getting the #10037 error until I chose the default loadout for the Stuka. I flew the stalingrad ground attack scenario with 5 other Stukas and 2 ME 109s as escort and it seemed to run smoothly and was a great deal of fun to fly.

I have the same issue with Microsoft FFB2 joystick , there is no force-feedback. Can't enjoy game without it, please fix it soon.

 

Also , is there any news on SLi support? I have some FPS drops and I am patiently awaitng Sli support.

 

Can't wait for multiplayer mode , I think it's when we will have a real test of the game and it's potential for countless hours of online fun.

 

S!

Anybody else have a Force Feedback issue with a MS FFB 2 ?

 

It will not work for me. Before this update it works fine.

 

In all other games it works, so its not the Joystick., weird :huh:

Same here!

In trying the Lapino Fee Mission with the Stuka I note that the AI Stuka's in this mission do not have complete textures.

 

In the Stalingrad Map, Ground Attack mission - AI Stuka's have correct textures.

Add me to the list.  I even rebooted the PC after the new patch.  The FFB is there but VERY weak.

 

I would add this to a bug thread if I knew where it was.

Same here. Thought I did something wrong but looks like I'm not the only one.I have a Logitech G940. Working perfectly with ROF, but strangely with BOS - either completely limp or stiff (talking about the joystick ok : -)

Too bad spoils the game. Any solution somebody ?

Sweetfx caused launcher to crash, if the error details say that the error occured in the PresentationCore then SweetFX/FlightFX need to be removed. Just an FYI.

I have a big graphic bug with the JU87; My plane was hit and the canopy was covered by oïl and smoke. so I did open the slidding part of it but the oïl and smoke was still there without the support of the perpx. Strange and impossible! it did never go away until I quit the mission.

Report it in the bugs section of the early access forum.

 

On the plus side you have a bunch of oily looking kisses across where your canopy should be.

Everything is running fine with the new patch except for some reason I can't get the gun to fire in the gunner's position. Is this just my poor setting of controls?

I believe you need to cock it first.

It did fire on my side after some trial and error.

Our Pe-2 won't have that turret, it will have a flexible ShKAS in the open back of the canopy on a mount fairly similar to the field modded 2-seater IL-2. We're getting the Pe-2 Series 83 standard. The turret was introduced on the Series 110 IIRC.

 

BTW: those vanes are a cool little detail, I always wondered what they were for. I hope such small details as that are modelled in the FM. Would be cool to see your plane slow down and/or steer off course, if the rear gun is swung out to one side and into the slipstream.

We should be getting both. From an old LOFT interview:

 

 

 

5) Will there be more then one version each of the IL-2 and Pe-2?

 

Yes. Pe-2, for example, will be presented to the 87th and 110th series.

The Stuka is a really fun plane and extremely cool looking. I had a great time. Thanks to the team and the testers for getting him in working order for us, this week!  :thank_you:

 

I really like your movies, Isida. Thanks for making this great video.   :good:

All those HDR, bloom and lightning effects really hits fps in ju87 ground attack mission or any other with more planes (fps drops to 20-30 when just looking at other stukas with lights on a runaway. Also avg fps is quite low  ~40-50 fps with a few planes around, dogfight with many planes and many effects around would be hardly enjoyable.

I will be disappointed if devs continue to keep simple graphic settings instead of ability to set particular options. From ROF experience i know that those effects can really lower fps(to unplayable in mass dogfights) therefore i am running rof with them disabled. I don't believe further optimization will improve fps 2-3x time where currently i get ~25fps (unless they lower the quality of effects).

I am running i7 2600k@4.6ghz with gtx770 with high settings also tried balanced but performance didn't improve much while graphics looked worse.

Have not had time to play this update yet, did get it updated this morning successfully.

First thing I did was go in to my control settings just to check and make sure they are all still there ok, and see that now deadzones are sticking properly after exiting and going back into the sim.

 

Thanks for getting this fixed!

I got failed to update message.  So if force-feedback is not working anyway I will not bother with BoS this week, as with no FF any flight sim is dead to me.

 

I hope for a successful update next week together with FF, or I will not bother again.

 

Happy landings,

Just flew the update for the first time, flew the Lagg Intercept mission a couple of times.

Very neat mission, yet another good one to compliment the escort mission.

 

While I made it through and returned to base successfully, unfortunately my flight failed miserably - got to work on my Stuka killing abilities before I run out of ammo. This mission will be good practice for me though.

 

Love the new enhanced sound of the wheels on the runway on landing the Lagg.

 

Looking nice guys!

Hello,

 

Does anyone else have the following message come up when trying to start the Lapino map BF 109 intercept mission or know how to fix this?

 

"10020: This mission is unavailable for your account."

 

Uninstalled-reinstalled the game. No change.
