Re: Starshina Noris arrives at Kalach

Well done Noris, welcome to the Sergeant's Mess. Mine's a pint of bitter please :thumbup I believe that the Collector's Edition planes are purchasable independent of which game version you own (I may or may not be correct in this), so if you wished to (and needed to prove insanity for an upcoming cr...

Re: IL-2 BoS Mission Building Guide

I already tried that as the standard fix for non-loading missions, but got the same result. I guess that it's also possible that something on my PC is corrupt.

Re: TP Groups collection

I've spent the afternoon splitting the Moscow map stock entities (buildings, airfields, bridges, etc) into two sections for upper and lower halves of the Moscow map for quick loading into Mission editor. Link is here File sizes unzipped are approximately 2.5Mb for lower (souther) half and 3Mb for up...

Re: IL-2 BoS Mission Building Guide

Prangster, I tried loading the Velikiye Luki template mission file today to have a go at your mission building tutorial and it returned an error saying "Error reeading mission file!". I suspect that this is something to do with version changes since you made the template. It's no big problem as your...

Re: IL-2 BoS Mission Building Guide

I linked to that BoS Forum post when answering another BoS forum member's thread earlier today. I can edit my post to delete the link if necessary. I assumed that as it was an old-ish post that anything in it was already known about.

Re: Sgt Sylkhy arrives at a train station near to Kalach

I suspect that I applied to join the squadron a while before I was really prepared in terms of both equipment (Head tracking, joystick fine tuning, etc) and experience, but I intend to stick with it and rise to the challenges presented. I hope that I am identifying my mistakes and working to correct...

Re: Sgt Sylkhy arrives at a train station near to Kalach

Co-incidentally I have just now taken delivery of a box containing one TrackHat Clip, one trackiing camera (IR enabled) and one camera clip for mounting the camera on top of a screen. Now I just have the torture of seeing it sat on my desk at work when I want to be back home setting it up :) With a ...

Re: Sgt Sylkhy arrives at a train station near to Kalach

Currently my major hurdles to overcome are with getting engine management to be second nature, learning not to disappear off at a tangent as soon as I look at my gauges and actually finding time to look out of the cockpit (or back into it once I get in formation). Flying solo in game I can probably ...
