  1. Hi Sheriff

    Have a look at this link https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/15624-bombsight-interface/

    There are other threads and the last post on this one is nearly 18 months ago. I haven't found any third party solutions but there again I don't want one. I don't mind using the mouse as it represents using hands to set up the sight. I always try to give plenty of time when setting up a bombing run so rarely get the situation when I only have a few seconds to set up.

    Probably not what you're looking for but hope the link helps.


  2. Hurray!! I have spent ages trying all sorts of key mappings to correct the pilot's head position in the IL-2mod, 1942, all to no avail. It didn't matter what I did, I had obviously created a 'remove seat cushion' mod somewhere without knowing it as my view in the aircraft looking forward was like being von Smallhausen....I could not see over the top of the instrument panel cowl without standing up....not good for flying.

    I looked online, obviously where I should have gone first weeks ago, and found out that each aircraft pilot or gunner head position has a .svc file (or a _t1.svc file for example for a turret position) in the folder here: IL2 Battle of Stalingrad/data/LuaScripts/snapviews. Closing the game, deleting this file for the relevant aircraft position from the 'snapview' folder and then restarting the game resets the pilot's head position to default, creates a new .svc file and hey presto, allows me more BoX joy because I can see what I'm doing now. Simples.

    A much happier Sid. I don't feel so much like Sid Viscous now.....

    Here is an idea, due to the low turnout on Tuesday nights, and it has been this way for a long time, how about alternate 1946-BoX on Tuesdays?

    I seem to remember this being a suggestion last year but I can't find the thread. If I remember correctly we decided that Official Dogz nights could be Sunday as a '46 night, Tuesday would eventually turn into BoX night when it became accepted by the Dogz and thursday would be CloD night. Other than those official ones peeps would do and join with eachother in whatever way they wanted.

    Installed and tested. Works ok but I am not shot in the ass with color graphics. Greens seem to have a "minty" flavor to them. I running most things on medium to high,  clocking FPSs in 100-150s, but the overall color of the terrain just looks strange. Cockpit and my P51 look okyt. So I am looking for suggestions/settings to get back to the 1.5.8 look like I had. Now I know my TN  panel ain't gonna get the best color rendition but the mint green in weird looking to me. Monitor is an ASUS VG248QE 144hrz I ms grey to grey running thru the displayport.  Rest of my system specs are in my signature line. Thanks.

    I had the blurry image and also not so good colours when I updated the 2.5.0 beta to the new version. When installing the new version I allowed the new one to import settings from the beta and I think that was the problem.

    I carried out the simple instrctions here https://stormbirds.blog/2018/01/31/what-to-do-if-your-dcs-world-2-5-doesnt-look-right/  and now have a lovely shiny new game. Just a case of deleting old imported settings and letting the new installation sort itself out with new ones. I know it refers to installing the 2.5 beta but it works going from beta to new 2.5.


  5. Hi mate, hope these help. Here are two sheets of info that I use as an aide memoire and backup. First is a list of my key mappings (Aircraft controls.doc) the second is a pictorial view of my controls that is a quick reference for me in game. it's worth remembering that the key mappings are particular to me and linked in with my Saitek X52 stick profiles but it gives you an idea of what is needed. I use Mode 2 (the middle column) on the controls reference picture for bombing, it keeps it seperate from flight and engine modes (1 and 3 respectively). Hope you can read the handwriting, I'm not renowned for legible handwriting!!

    Also you will see controls on the picture that are for my offline BAT IL2 46 install eg. wing sweep and drag chute and aren't relevant to our Dogz HSFX installation.

    Hello chaps, it appears Cherry Hinton is now fully booked for the Legends weekend, which is what I thought might happen...

    Who has booked that has a spare bed? :P

    You could always do a Fruitbat and just kip on the floor in mine and Painless's room...the hotel won't be any the wiser
