The whole point of stats are lost if you keep it a secret. Why Didn't you tell the world eh?


These are my settings...

It currently opens up in a 1024x768 window. I haven't touched the game in a week or two, it USED to work properly and now it's just ignoring the file as if there is another one somewhere over-riding it?

Tuesday it is! We might also do something Thursday.

For next weekend, I'm thinking of doing something different. I'm going to download Aces High sign up for the free trial and see just how it is. I know the graphics are old and poo poo but I don't care, I want to try something new.

If anyone cares to join me, the download is under 250MB.

If possible can we get another host to take over when I need to head off so PST players can get some time in?

Thanks to goon Foodahn for hooking me up with this game.

Took me about 30 minutes to figure out taking off in a tailwheel (hint:the tail isn't on the ground when you rotate) but I started to get the hang of it pretty quickly after that. After playing FSX for a while, I'm really excited about the fact that prop pitch actually does things in this game. Someone invite me to the steam group!

Allegedly they're working on an update for HSFX compatible with 4.11. No word on when it's coming out...probably not for a few months.

It didn't matter because my OS died horribly Wednesday night. Fortunately my CK2 game was complete. I think I would have gone apeshit if I lost that thing in the last century.

So I bought this and look forward to trying Multiplayer, but, is the campaign not even worth trying?

The reason I asked is I loaded up the first US mission (Wake Island) one and no matter what I try, my drat copilot just breezes out of sight like he has 14 engines on him. I can't keep up no matter what I try. And then he yells at me

The AI is programmed to be perfect at engine management, unfortunately.

The best bit of advice for playing single player is setting your Rank as the highest it can be (bottom of the drop down list) before you start a campaign. That way you will be flight leader and your wingmen will follow you and keep speed with you. The campaigns can be pretty fun if you check out Lowengrin's DCG, read EvilJoven's second post in the thread about how to get that set up nicely.

Unless I'm mistaken, 4.11 changed the AI so that they aren't perfect unless they're an Ace or something.

Welcome to Canada. Yes it smells funny, you'll get used to it.

If Lowengrin's skill settings are the same as the in game settings, any level below Rookie or maybe average will mop the floor with anyone who hasn't been playing for years. They're crack shots now.

Heard and purchased, yes. If you're looking for a substitute WWII sim, this isn't it, since the only WWII-era asset is the P-51 itself. However, if you want a new challenge with a high-fidelity aircraft that is light years ahead of the 1946 P-51, it's a pretty great buy. A novelty perhaps, but a fun novelty nonetheless.

I can take off and land without any aides in other flight sims. But holy hell, some of these rinky dink fighters are ungodly difficult to take off. Especially the I-16 with the ridiculous hand cranked manual landing gear system and twitchy controls.

Fun game, though.

One of my first experiences in IL2 was a US fighter over wake with manual gear. I didn't know it was manual gear and was really, really unimpressed with the things speed. Then I figured that out and it really didn't go a whole lot faster with the gear up either... F2 if I remember correctly.

That would be the Wildcat (F4F). For all its shortcomings, the Buffalo at least had hydraulic gear.

The I-16 should be called the widowmaker. Worst snap-stall characteristics ever.
