  2. online servers

  3. online servers

    sorry cant make tonight will be around on wednesday tho
  4. online servers

    I'm in for Monday, Wednesday or Thursday as long s icons and GPS are on, I don't like the icons but they are better than without, I don't think this game displays dots or planes very well and makes it unplayable to me without the icons
  5. online servers

    Ok Im flying a fair bit on the servers to test them out, here are some thoughts There are generally only 4 or 5 busy servers at european time these are Wings of liberty Tactical Air War Finnish VirtualPilots DEDs European server These fill up fast and are sometimes you cant get on them as they are full but the others have under 10 on them Im finding the no icon servers really difficult as Im flying alone , Its nearly impossible to spot the dots especially down low, I spot them, dive in and they dissapear. full real tend not to use chat and Iv yet to try their teamspeak So Im flying mainly on DED server untill I can get up to speed. They at least use chat and try to co-ordinate but it can be a bit air-quake with everyone bunched up in one area. I will try wings of liberty next with teamspeak but It would be good if we could get one of the more full real types with short icons on but I guess that either not possible or there is no demand.
  6. I agree about tir , Iv used charvels profile for ever but it was too fast, Im using a slow smooth setting now and much better
  7. multi-sim control key and axis mapping

    I have attatched my basic layout for Box in a spreadsheet below , you can see if that looks ok or you can tweak it to suit. This is for a x-52 so has 3 positions + shift giving 6 options. Mode 3 has not been set up as this is my bombing mode and Iv not got round to setting this up for BoX . I am not familiar with ch software but have heard there are issues with it and you are best just programming the actions direct using game interface however this does not give you as many options as you will only have 1 mode. for extra buttons you might want to try these https://www.amazon.co.uk/Thrustmaster-Replica-Force-Cougar-Flight/dp/B002HH9TRY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1515580167&sr=8-1&keywords=mfd+cougar+pack I have things like nav lights,F1 F2 , chat, eject mapped to these hope this helps joystick.xlsx
  8. multi-sim control key and axis mapping

    What is your stick ? Do you have throttle and rudders and track IR ? What games? I can send you my x-52 setup if any use, I have it on a spreadsheet. As crash said tho I have slightly different between il2 46 and box as box does not support rotaries
  9. SE5a

    Eduard 1/48 Se5a biplane rigged
  10. Hurricanes

    Here are 2 airfix 1/48 hurris. One is a malta desert scheme and the other a Battle of Britain scheme. The Malta Hurricane is the new mold and the BoB the old mold.
  11. reason Im asking is Im still getting random problems with BoS and my controller X-52. It worked fine when I updated the drivers but now has again started having random freezes when I use the mode switch. Once it happens the plane goes to autopilot and all the inputs are mucked up e.g hat 1 movement fires guns but not mapped to that in any way in game or profile, I have to restart game to cure it other random view problems happen sometimes when Im closing in for kill and using hat 1 to zoom into sight with view locking into strange position, again in no way mapped in control section of game, in fact Iv deleted all the snap and padlock views from control section. I cant replicate issues in game by joystick actions/button pushes to see if it is a joystick problem , its totally random Everything works fine in other games and in game controllers and when I test the joystick in the profiller but something is happening in game. I cant use joytokey now as it only recognises two joysticks 1 and 2 and I have 4 with the new touchpads taking over 1 and 2; ch rudders 3 and joystick 4 and of course I cant find an easy way to reassign these in windows 7 so Im thinking of updating to windows 10 from windows 7 if thats a possible solution, whats your experiences with windows 10 , is it ok? or will it cause more issues or am I barking up wrong tree its really driving me mad as game is unplayable just now as I cant cure these issues with controls
  12. ok , Iv found out some problems with profile I had set up , it had copied in some bindings from one mode to the next on trigger 2 and this was playing havoc, Iv gone over all my settings in game and in profile, sorted any conflicts( game doesnt like some shift functions) and it seems to be ok now, @jabo saitek have been taken over by logitek who have released drivers , see here http://support.logitech.com/en_us/product/x52-space-flight-simulator-controller/downloads I will test next week and see if I have found the source thanks again for input guys, appreciate it
  13. from the dev update The new Coop multiplayer mode is almost done. This game mode is much like RoF Coop, but IL-2 Coop will have several improvements compared to RoF one thanks to our GUI programmer Vitaly Tolmachev. It will be possible to form player groups using a dialog window and assign a different route to each. There will be also an option to fly a gunner like in Dogfight. Thanks to Coop development, we're also improving the game statistics system, which will benefit all the game modes. First of all, stats will become more informative. After making necessary improvements that stats parser tool was designed to support from the start, in the future we plan to further expand and improve the statistics system. Moreover, the entire MP points assignment system will be revised. Difficulty modifier will be gone - on all difficulty settings, players will receive the same amount of points. We do this because it turned out that setting strict rules for set groups of users is not needed for the community, and most MP servers use custom difficulty settings where points are not counted at all. We also won't set the player points to zero if he is killed or captured. Instead, we're adding additional player states the community asked us for some time: Airplanes: Successful Landing at airfield : x 2.5 Emergency Landing at airfield : x 2.0 Forced Landing outside the base : x 2.0 Ditched : x 1.5 Bailed Out : x 1.0 Flight Canceled : x 0.5 Captured : x 0.5 Killed : x 0.5 Friendly Fire : x 0.0 Vehicles: In Service : x 1.5 Broken : x 1.0 Killed : x 0.5 Friendly Fire : x 0.0 Statistics system isn't the only thing that is changed by adding Coop mode - you'll be able to host a server not only from a separate DServer tool using a different account, but from within a game. You will be able to specify all the required parameters in the game itself and participate in the mission he is hosting together with other players. Such servers will be visible in the servers list just like DServer ones. You'll be able to host both Dogfight and Coop servers this way.
  14. I have scanned the folders with spybot and malwarebytes and they come up clean but just annoying to have the issue
  15. My AVG does not like the launcher exe App name C:|program files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\il-2 Sturmovick cliffs of dover blitz\launcher64.exe protected folder c;\users\dave\documents file path c:\users\dave\documents\ic softclub\il-2 sturmovik cliffs of dover\missions\multi\co-op\airfield attack a.jpg detected by ransomware protection I have had to put launcher and 1csoftclub folder in my exceptions tho not happy to do so
  16. Hello fellow flyers!

  17. online servers

    I was on Tactical Air War last night but without GPS navigation was hard, I basically followed a river, which was near the airfield, back and forth over the lines
  18. Agree with you on the windnoise FT, very annoying, also finding the ground handling tricky, Iv went round in circles a few times because I opened the throttle too quick
  19. online servers

    So far I have only found two types 1. Hardcore - full CEM , no icons, no speedbar 2. Relaxed or Normal , no CEM , icons, minimap,speedbar Is there any middle ground , with CEM but with icons?
  20. We need to talk...

    Id say no but only due to the fact that Il2 is still by far the most used and popular and so deserves its slots- sundays tend to be long missions and the quick dogfight scenario is catered for on Tuesdays, however having seen the low turnout on tuesdays recently I dont know if my argument is valid. Is there anything wrong in making Wednesdays BoX nights ?
  21. new thrustmaster touchpads

    Just thought some might like to see these in place , looks good, just need to sort out how to ge tthem to work now , maybe the minions can help
  22. help required

    Just a note to say that joytokey appears to work well in testing, will try in game later I create a profile and can assign keyboard presses ( including shift and crtl) to buttons. I create a second profile and can map different keyboard actions to the buttons I can then assign a change profile key to the pinky lever which then swops to the diffferent profile so I have 2 times the number of buttons on joystick and throttle I should be able to get most of the important keys on joystick and the auxillary on the new panels. well thats the theory, Ill let you know the practice later
  23. ok Im having big problems with inputs I have a Saitek X-52 running in windows 7 pro joystick is set up to match inputx on the saitek software not in game The joystick works fine in windows and il246 HSFX and when I do the test joystick in profiler however there are problems when in BOX 1) when I change modes e.g from 2 to 1 all kinds of shit happens, e.g the autopilot comes on by itself and the pinky shift on the joystick doesnt work right and then I lose all my bindings when I go back to mode 2 even the keyboard wont work 2) sometimes when I go to external view F2 then back to internal F1 I loose all controls including keyboard 3) I cant get man prop pitch to work , I can switch from auto to manual but then neither keyboard nor binding buttons or a hat will work I have it mapped to LSHIFT+ - and LSHIFT+= 4) it doesnt seem to understand difference between keys and shift keys ???? another problem is that the launcher wont close properly and sometimes hangs- any ideas folks ???????????
  24. help required

    Iv put the game keys back to default and mapped the joystick in the game and all ok, no crashes or freezing. pinky shift and modes dont work so iv ordered thrustmaster MDC panels to cover all the buttons ill need. Ill spend the next couple of days mapping everything when the panels arrive thnks for support Dave
