Bit surprised by that, I thought initially that maybe it was the widescreen resolution I was using.

What bugs were corrected in detail?

I dont notice changes to the major ones...eg. the throttle axis or chewy 109 axis.

Now that we have 60minutes play time...the (expert) EU servers are constantly maxed out, so I end up with less play time than before...exactly 0 minutes.

Throttle axis still bugged.

What is this, please describe?

I think the FW190 should come with its standard weapons and unlocks should be some specialisations or enhancements. Can the unlock description be more precised as to see how this is meant to be read?

sturmkraehe, I'll find the stock armament describption for Fw 190 by Monday and post it here.

Ah, I know what you're talking about. Please tell me do you have any third party flight stick management software?

Also have you tried deleting the current.snap file (or the entire update folder) and then running the Launcher again?

I am running the Saitek software, although I do not load any profile for IL-2. I did not delete the update folder (doing it now). Will report back on the issue.

 

Update:

 

Still not working properly with software running and no change without the Saitek SST software. Deleting the update folder did not help either.

Thanks, Zak! Just to be well understood: I don't expect you to prove anything. If you tell me that FW190 without unlocks is equivalent to FW190 with standard equipment I am more than inclined to believe you. 

 

And spasiba for making mp 60 mins. This brought back fun for MP for me :)

Zak - the bombsight interface is currently the same as last week's update:

I assumed from your post that it was being updated with the extra features shown in your screenshot.

Same problem here, same inversion as for the last week or two, CH CM software running or not etc... the deadzone trick still works for me at least... :)

 I really don't know the stock loadout for A-3 so let's learn about it together :)

 The only effective way to resolve it that I know yet is to completely reinstall the game. I'm not pushing you to it but from what I know from players - it helps everyone.

Phew! I thought the sight was completely gone!

Oh, right. That's the newer version of the sight on the screenshot. Unfortunatelly it was not ready for today's update yet..

Yes, throttle axis is still an issue. Regardless of whether I invert it or not, throttle is still bugged.

Yes. Assuming that we have to stick to unlockables, i would've suggested to make the 90 round drum an unlockable and removing the MG-FF altogether the other unlockable.

 

I noticed a slight performance boost with this update and the LaGG-3 FM is back to the FM of before the last update.

 

Did not notice any other changes yet.

I have a connection of 150 Gig and the network setting only goes up to ten. I need to put in thirty eight, if you divide it by four. I assume I just put it on ten since there is no thirty eight, but will I have a performance issue since my connection is a lot faster then you have catered for?

Thanks for the update. The Pe-2 guide is a nice little printable sheet.

 

A bit surprised to see the MG FF cannons for the Fw 190 as unlockables. Shouldn't they be standard and have the removal of them as an unlockable?

 

Good to see a steady progress.

 

 

MG-FF in the wings of the FW190 was basic factory loadout. It shouldn't be in the list of unlockable field mods, but as basic option.

The 90 round drum is fine as unlockable, but not the basic wing guns.

 

Look closely - it's the MG-FF/M that's unlockable, not the standard MG-FF.

Mh. I shall divide my speed by 4 but the result cannot be put in as it only allows 1, 2, 4 or 10.

 

 

I need a 6.9 setting

In 1941 all MG-FF's where replaced by the MG-FF/M

Throttle and Rudder axis are inverted, until I move the dead zone of one of them a bit. Then both are correct. Have to do this "workaround" at every load of BoS.

 

(bug was introduced at last patch)

The bombsight... oh my gosh, it is much better than anything I would have dreamed!

Much better than the good old il2.

Much better than any bombsight of others simulators.

Thanks to your wonderful work, more pilot bombers will go into battle

1000 thanks guys! You are simply the Best!

Love you!♥♥♥

Exactly.

Serial production FW190 never got the old version MG-FF. Only the upgraded versions (capable of shooting Mine shells).

Fw 190 A-3/U3 - The A-3/U3 was the first of the Jabo, using an ETC-501 centre-line bomb rack able to carry up to 500 kg (1,100 lb) of bombs or, with horizontal stabilising bars, one 300 L (80 US gal) drop tank. The U3 retained the fuselage-mounted 7.92 mm (.312 in) MG 17s and the wing-mounted 20 mm MG 151 cannon, with the outer MG FF being removed

 

Perhaps this is the model that is available initially in game

 

Anyway seems to me far too much angst for a bonus A/C that has yet to be made available at 50% completion of the game :)

 

It would be interesting if someone could dig up sales of IL-2 (original) compared to how many people flew in MP, am sure rather more than would be considered flew a lot of single player missions/campaigns..it is just the "pure MP" guys who seem to have louder voices ;)

Sales are important and anything that will give the single player a less sterile environment and more fun/sense of achievement are vital for "casual" sales, to get the next Theatre and A/C that we all look forward to experiencing

I think yak should have rudder trim. But it seems not to work - at least for me. IIRC on La5 it works. But I seem not to be able to yaw trim the yak.

Not for me. Please,do not generalise,It sounds like if it was bug everyone is experiencing.Instead post your hardware for rudder and throttle so devs can look at it.My old worn Saitek Evo joy and flight pedals work just fine.Never had this inverted problem.

Ok, you've been fortunate, but a great many, many people are experiencing this issue.

This had been reported by a great many people on the forums as of last week when the problem was introduced.

 

I have been fortunate as well, just updated this morning and still so far I have not had this axis inverted issue.

 

Interestingly though, I took a look in the controller section under input responses, and in the pitch the graph shows my pushing the joystick forward, as an " up" action, and pulling back as a " down" action, but it is correct in the sim - forward is pitch down, and backward is pitch up as it should be...

 

But so far still, all my axis responses have maintained correctly through the last couple of updates. Really odd why this issue is happening to so many though, hopefully they can nail down what is causing it soon.

I also have a CH Throttle Quadrant that I use in addition to my Warthog to give me even more axis ,and they all so far have retained as well.

Hi , Both BoS & RoF  do not recognise dual key commands from Saitek X52 or Logitech software whether wrote  as dual key presses ,macro or special macro when programmed in the specific device software . Commands such as  LEFTSHIFT+A only show the single key A but the game recognises direct key input in combinations from the keyboard . There have been a number of posts on this issue and those players devices that allow scripting in their software have found workarounds . The effect of this for some of the players I know is the necessity of adding an extra device(S) and using direct input so the game recognises the device and button number . Those who cannot afford a second or even third device find their device game control  inputs limited to the number of single key commands available often deleting default assigned commands that are less relevant to game play in order to achieve this . Can this be looked into please as although posted in many areas it has still not been addressed & as the series expands in the future more  inputs may be needed.Many thanks .

+1 BirdDog. Was wondering why I can not use the software at all.

 

Another issue that seems to be present (I was unaware of) is the delay in firing the guns. It seems to be a bug or messed up feature. As I was told it increases with slowing down time...it actually increases the need to hold down the fire button to actually shoot. Something seems oddly wrong with the whole input configuration and detection, since axis are inverted, not correctly detected or delayed.
