Re: Am I missing new pilots ?

Historically it was after AF1 but we had quite a few dropouts so I think we delay it slightly. Merlin will correct me if I'm wrong on this.

Re: A general note for any new chaps

Updated as too many have game and forum names that are different.

That doesn’t bother me. I just like to do a ton of reading on the front end of my mounts before I jump into the cockpit.
Oh dear that might make you too intellectual for Bunny. We tend to just jump in and hare around until the engine pops.

Re: Welcome Guests.

I suppose I’ll keep bopping around in my hurricane for now then We're swapping sides to enjoy all facets of the game. That means it is very likely that in the future we will be Soviet, LW, RAF and possibly USAAF. If folks don't want to explore everything that is absolutely fine, but they probably w...

Re: VR freezing up in multi-player

Say 70Gb for W10, 20Gb for all of the IL2 stuff so 500Gb should be ok for everything.

If you have 2 drives, shove W10 on the first small drive and make sure all game installations go on disk 2. You just need to make around with installation paths etc.

Re: Is there a better, more HOTAS sensitive joystick?

I have a Monstertech mount and an old office waiting room chair. I find I can swivel around just enough without the joystick impeding me. I don’t think there is an easy option - joystick attached to a chair is kinda feasible but start moving around and the cabling will annoy or will simply not be lo...

Re: Hardware update

Tricky because we'd need to know your budget and how expensive things are for you - no point advising if the components are cheaper here etc.

Online co-op mission generator

http://il2-expert.ru/en/Coop

You have to register but using it is self-explanatory. The only tip I can give is that you should just wait one you have set it to make a mission because it does refresh the screen so you can see the mission to download.

Odd as I did send an email thought it expressed reservations about the time zone. I’ll double-check later.

Also check out his biography called Winged Victor.
Re-reading that. It reminded me that of 14.166 pilots killed in WWI, 8,000 were killed during training.
