Easy mission generator

Jacko made a couple of missions so kudos to him for putting me onto this, https://sites.google.com/view/il2-great-battles-emg/home Download to a folder, set your IL2 root directory and then hit the .exe. Any map, any aircraft can be chosen. Single, co-op or dogfight servers can be generated. You don...

Re: Warthog HOTAS

You don't really need to bother with the various toggle switches if you don't want to. My controls are set up as shown below. Some controls are set like they are as a carry over form previous controls and to avoid having to retrain the muscle memory. Note: I disengage the left throttle and use that ...

TOM’S GUIDE TO COMMAND

TOM’S GUIDE TO COMMAND This is my guide to how I see the leadership function within the Tangmere Wing. It is not perfect and leadership is always subject to the particular idiosyncracies of the pilot in command of each unit. Each squadron also has its own identities and will do things in specific wa...

Re: F Sgt Kolo has arrived at Sutton Bridge

I am pleased to report that Kolo completed A/F 2 with his eyes closed tonight. His eyes must have been closed as he didn't spot anything until almost ramming it - a perfect candidate I thought.

Anyway, A/F 3 next week.

F Sgt Kolo has arrived at Sutton Bridge

Gentlemen, we have a new chap, Kolo, who has just passed his Assessment Flight 1. He did moderately well (and scared me witless by flying too close) and he also did well on a practice op, destroying the most targets (only 1 air to air target though *sniff*) and most importantly he didn't shoot at me...

Re: VR hints and tips

What Silk says, though I would have used more cultured erudite language. A couple of differences though. In action I never use the 1.5 zoom. I pretty much always use the 10x zoom and only occasionally switch to 5x, perhaps when I want to read the squadron code but not lose the overall picture. I hav...

Check out the AMD 5700xt instead.

No point as they’re waaaay over budget unless you can find one for around £160.

Re: Is this a decent graphics card?

Yes - the motherboard should take most modern graphics cards. If you can, get a 1060. If not a 1060 then a 1650. Also check your power supply unit and what the graphics card needs to make sure you can power it. eg. https://www.overclockers.co.uk/evga-geforce-gtx-1060-sc-3072mb-gddr5-pci-express-grap...

I guess this would beinadequate for a 2060?
Choose a 2060 then tell us your motherboard and PSU then we can figure it out.

@Hatter I’m waiting for the same question in December 2020.

VR hints and tips

1. Map the VR reset button in-game as it means that if you need to you can tweak your head position to get it just right. 2. Set the map opacity to quite low, then you can see through it whilst you're looking at it. Make sure you can make out the grid numbering easily though. 3. Drink bottled alcoho...

P38 pilot notes: http://akvictoria.by/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/P-38-Lightning.pdf For flaps see pages 50-52 of the manual. There doesn't appear to be an indicator in-cockpit though there is a little red rod that extends on the left wing close to the trailing edge and just inside the engine. I can'...
