    Problem Accessing Forums

    I use Chrome. When I load the Dogz page for the first time today it says it's unavailable and won't load. I click the reload button I'm offered and it loads ok. Similarly refreshing the page works. A fault somewhere?

    Bomb Sight Bindings ?

    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.

    I like your careful predictions....
  7. Well chaps, thank you, had a blast. I had a great time. Crash, FT and Arthur hosted and it was fun! Thanks gents! It is the way to go...and jeez, these planes look good.
  8. Well done BB, great photos and account. Like it very much, the more these sites are made known the better.
  9. 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..... Cheerzen
  10. Well, that explains a lot A film to cherish.....

    Amazing miniature engines

    Would that be a gas turbine type by any chance Mr. Luddite? 😉
  12. One for Painless....these are amazing. Fantastic engineering and demos of miniature engines of all sorts

  14. 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.

    Version 2.5 Graphics Question

    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.
