  1. First, will we be flying in 'Expert' mode? If so I still need a lot of practice. If not then I'd give it a go. My vote would be mud moving, either side.

    Taking on some A-20's.
  3. Figures. Kinda dumb I think because it would let others know what you have and could be helpful I directing a person to another person who has the same setup. Well that's what I get coming from M4T where we bend over backwards to help. Although I must say they seem to be a a kind of helpful lot over there. Not nearly as helpful as this kennel.😁 Thanks for your response.
  4. Rather than start a new thread... Another "observation I've made is although I have now bought BoM and BoK only the BoS badge appears under my avatar on the IL-2 Sturmovik forums. Not a biggie but why not? Enquiring minds want to know.
  5. Thank you. It's eactly what I was looking for. It should be called "The Simon and Garfunkel Mod". You know, 'The Sounds of Silence'. 😁
  6. OK, I'm a nOOb when it comes to Great Battles but... I'm flying on the Moscow map (the "Green Moscow" mod is a beautiful by the way) and I can't fly to Moscow!😮 I was going to explore the "Unknown Frontier" (flying off the edge of the map) as I called it in 1946, but the game takes control away from me at either returns me to the "Official Map" (AutoLevel on) or after a few klicks boots me out of the game. How rude! 😖 Anyway, just an observation.
  7. When you start the game and when you switch to various GUI's (Settings, Graphics etc.) there is the sound of plane engines, ( a near helicopter sound morphing into a generic plane), and battlefield sounds. In 1946 you could eliminate these sounds by checking various boxes or editing the conf.ini. It's not that they annoy me but I am getting a little tired of the same sound. Is there a way to disable it so I can launch and modify my game through GUI in blissful silence? TIA

    Another sale on

    I've had BoS since the early release of the Premium Edition in late July of 2014 as a birthday present to myself. I got it from a M4T member who got frustrated and didn't like it. And he was selling cheap. He got permission from 1CGS for me to use his key. I also got founder status. It sat on my HD getting very little use as I found the interface a bit confusing as well as setting up my joystick and keyboard. Skinning was (and still is) daunting and only now I'm understanding how to do it although I probably take a few extra steps so I can use my PSP8 program that I am accustomed to. And, as a mission builder in 1946 I found, and still do find, the mission builder to be quite complex compared to 46. Anyway, I have recently got a renewed interest in BoX (Great Battles) and have been able to produce my first skin so I jumped in and got BoM and BoK. If for some reason you don't have these yet, or want Collector planes at an incredible discount, NOW is the time to visit and get caught up on the cheap. For me, getting BoM/BoK has spurred my interest even further. I'm sure that expanding your GB install will do the same for you.

    First Skin (WIP)

    Now the skin is on a more correct model seen here flying over Tuapse looking for a train.

    DOH! Usually I log in off line. After my BoM purchase I "accidentally" hit the Green Enter box. After my BoK purchase I logged in offline. As Forrest Gump said, "Stupid is as stupid does." So I logged in online and there it was. Thanks for pointing out what should have been obvious. You guys are lifesavers. Now to practice a heck of a lot.
  13. Gentlemen, Sorry I left so abruptly this afternoon. It seems that the server was set up for 'Expert' settings so I had no HUD plus I am so new to the game I use a lot of auto settings for engine management. I couldn't remember the default key settings for the radiator so I kept overheating. I am very familiar with 1046 so more realistic settings like in HSFX are not as difficult to deal with. I need to practice a lot more but am looking forward to flying BoX with you.
  14. OK. I'm getting into Battle of Stalingrad enough that I went out and purchased Battle of Moscow and Battle of Kuban. I found out that there's a sale going on at IL-2 Sturmovik. So when I bought BoM I went to my License Key page at il2sturmovik.com and discovered that the key had been automatically activated. When I started the game it was there, maps planes and all. Good. So I decided to go ahead and buy BoK. I used the same procedure but this time, although on the license Key page it said my purchase had been activated, it wasn't. No map(s), planes, nothing. After opening the game and seeing BoM I took a quick spin around the autumn map then closed out of the game. After making my BoK purchase and ensuring that it had been purchased and the key activated I restarted the game to find no BoK!!! See below. So what's up? Do I have to contact IL-2 Sturmovik?
