Re: A general note for any new chaps

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

Thinking about it, I'm casting a sharp glance at Roy here...

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.

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: Welcome Guests.

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

Bloody students.

But doesn’t he have a lot of questions? I do like that he has already contribute to his own Tangmere story.

“I’ve got the map and route sorted” (or words to that wffcpoint t)

Carpet bombing does require a fair number of bombers.

Kipp, I changed your username and made it so you can see the forums. Please check it all - this is as far as I let myself go admin-wise so if anything doesn't work please pm Reggie as he's the web guru.

Re: Starshina Cowboy arrives at Kalach

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! And so you have access to the Kuban planes for mul...

Well done Cowboy.

Make sure you choose fighters - bombers are so passé and ugly. Like their pilots really.

Re: Starshina Moonbeam arrives at Kalach

Chaps,

Moonbeam is on detachment to the SEO operating behind enemy lines. For this reason his progress through OTU is on hold.

He may be in comms occasionally to brush up on his English so please make him welcome.
