  1. I prefer that too Mick, which is one of the reasons why I enjoyed FT's loooooooong missions in '46, but I know some people prefer PvP so...
  2. Great to here you back on comms JP. Is it you I need to speak to about my Canadian visa application, or do you have 'people' for that? It's a good time to buy Bodenplatte too, as there's a sale on at the moment and it's reduced for the first time (25% off I think). Sale is on to the 9th March. I think I may invest in Flying Circus as that's also reduced.
  3. That's my assumption Sid, AFAIK there's no way to disable the other aircraft view without using a mod of some description. Like Colin, I also flew (albeit briefly) with a much reduced icon view and no other aircraft on the map and although it was certainly more challenging, it was by no means impossible to find targets so I'll stick with it for now. While we're on the subject of levelling the playing field, should we also consider separate comms channels for red & blue
  4. With my dodgy eyesight I find it hard enough to pick up aircraft against a background as it is but in the interest of balance I am prepared to give it a try. That said, if I find that I have to turn back on any of these settings to give me any chance, I will not use any advantage unfairly. Although I don't know for certain, does VR's lower resolution not lead to larger dots at long range compared to a higher resolution monitor display?
  5. Like Arthur says, this is a step-change in complexity from '46 although with many hours in Blitz now, it wasn't too much of a wrench personally. I know I spend a lot more time now checking gauges in the pit rather than relying on the HUD. And at least it's not as bad labour intensive as DCS.
  6. Indeed, although I think that's not going to be flyable. Jug looks great too although I'd rather have the razorback version

    Joystick woes

    I've got an x-52 pro you can borrow if you want Delta - full working order last time I used it but the mode switch sometimes is a little flakey. Still it's a temporary solution.
  9. I'd be interested in the MFDs Dave, I don't actually need them though so if some DCSer really wants them then they should have first dibs Do they use a USB port each?
  10. Probably hadn't got enough sugar on them Mick.
  11. It's the wrong mark of the Beau though. By the time of the North Africa campaign, the Mark 1 was out of service.
  12. Of course we've had those pesky colonials here too... And there might have been some goofing about as well Happy Tom And the diehards...
  13. Oh good grief - TONAR! Get yourself back in here mate - I'm still providing target practice.
  14. Well, if the recovery doesn't work, we can always fall back on the USB stick route to get you back up and running again. Always good to have options.
  15. Don't see why not FT - might give you a headstart Todd. Is there anything else on the drive other than games?
  16. I assume you mean that you have a 2TB drive rather than a 2GB. For most bits of recovery software that I've seen, the target drive has to be considerably larger than the source drive as rebuilding the file structure takes a lot of space while the software is doing its thing. The software companies concerned take the easy way out and say you need double the capacity on the target drive. This will also take a very long time with a drive of this size. Would it not be quicker just to download the games again?
  17. Hi Mobius, good to hear from you again mate. Just one thing to bear in mind regarding mods (for you and JP) , in order to connect to our servers you will need to run the game in 'mods on' mode even if you're not using them yourself. That's because if you want to run mods locally on your machine (like a lot of the guys do) then the server has to be running 'mods on' as well and therefore everyone connecting to that server also need to run 'mod on' irrespective of whether or not they use mods themselves. There's a checkbox in the Game menu under Settings to turn mods on when you get to that point. If you decide you want to use mods, then the best way is to use JSGME just like in '46 and there are a few helpful threads on the IL-2 forum explaining how to go about setting that up. PM sent with the TS details.

    Which days Tom?
  19. As you will be able to see JP, we've managed to nail the issue of everyone taking off...
  20. Hey JP, good to hear from you again! It's been a while.
  21. Just a placeholder for now - check here for up-to-the moment news about what's arriving (or not). Will 2020 be the year we finally get an IL-2 at Dux?
  22. So who's up for this one chaps? I'll start the ball rolling... 1. Jabo (Friday, Saturday, Sunday - room booked) 2. Crash (Friday, Saturday - room booked) 3. Sweper (provisional) 4. Friar (Friday, Saturday) 5. Fenrir (Friday, Saturday) 6. PapaFen (Friday, Saturday)
  23. Well done chaps. Personally I prefer to fly whole missions but the map size is problematic so this is a useful project. If I can be of assistance, let me know. I'm actively involved with the TF 5.0 Alpha testing at present, but I can certainly find the time over the next couple of weeks to chip in if required.
