FPS blues

Just checking in guys, I still haven't resolved the sudden drop if FPS from 80 to 25 which makes it extremely frustrating to fly IL2. Running a benchmark I dropped from 2500 to 900. The hardware seems to be fine, I can't find any software that is slowing me down, no malware or viruses. Speedtest res...

Re: Starshina Cowboy arrives at Kalach

We've got a shortage of P-39 pilots (can't think why) so if you've got the P-39 I'd like you to go to the 298 IAP Cowboy. Moggy, got the P-39L-1, I'll get some stick time with it this week - looks to be a good fighter/ground attack plane. I believe I heard you are using the Thrustmaster T16000 flig...

Cowboy, do you have full forum access yet?
Not yet Sparky, by the way have you had a chance to test the encoding knobs on your button box for functions like opening and closing cowls, shutters, etc?

But you did just buy Kuban last night just so you could fly an A20. Shame to waste all that money ??
To get the planes plus I believe the plan is to run Battle of Kuban missions the next four Sundays.
My first flight in the A20, it's a great plane!

Re: Starshina Cowboy arrives at Kalach

All joking aside, I have really enjoyed flying with the squad and I look forward to more of it. It will be extremely beneficial when I have more access to the forums with the downloads and mission briefings etc. Thanks again guys!

Re: Starshina Cowboy arrives at Kalach

Thank you, I'll get the next round and maybe a second for Merlin for putting up with me - it does take awhile getting used to flying on your side of the sky after all. I'll fly whatever you put me in and if I like it I'll even bring it back.

Re: Welcome Guests.

except "Chako" sounds like "Jacko" which is the radiotelephone proword for "disregard the following transmission" :Peace Yeah, there has been some confusion with the name and since it's not a 1940's RAF nick name I've decided to change it to "Cowboy". Seems there was a U.S. pilot that joined the RA...

Re: Welcome Guests.

All good information, I didn't realize VR is an option. At this point since I've got the computer I'll go with the TrackIR. VR is rapidly improving so down the line I'll probably make the switch.

S!
