  1. A useful guide here by Jade_Monkey https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/32596-quick-reference-printout-engine-settings-limits-temps/ Taken from the game notes, it has been very useful and answers some of the engine management questions that we bring up every so often. Doesn't include P47 or 109 kurfurst yet but he says it will be updated. Cheerzen
  2. Are they prepared to give you an equivalent board and processor?

    Can you get a replacement over the counter?
  4. I think it's a very good idea you ambling over to Sainsbury's, yes. You may well end up looking like a lot of the others imitating the walking dead as they do the same....
  5. In all seriousness crashesnfails, come and fly with us. All your questions can be answered in practical terms and demos rather than the guys trying to explain in a post. Look at the calendar for BoS sessions and the Teamspeak window to see who's on the Dogz server....Dogz fly at all times mate. Cheerzen Sid
  6. Salute Arthur and Sheriff, that was one of the most exhilarating few minutes I've flown anywhere Watching the vid and seeing where your rounds were going, I was extremely lucky not to get hit by your artillery pieces. We had fun higher up too....have you got a vid of the La5 bouncing you two...whoever that was.... I love hearing the chat too...brilliant!

    Would Love to Get Back!

    Have you installed all of the software for the X52? There are drivers and the SST software. I have an x52 and have used the attached driver and software with Windows 10 successfully for years. I have so far managed to avoid using MadCatz software with my hotas, rudder pedals and quadrants...all Saitek. Saitek_X52Pro_Flight_Controller_SD6_64.exe SST_Software_64_6_6_6_9.exe

    Is this an alternative to the standard GUI?

    32gb vs. 16gb ram

    I went from 16 to 32 a couple of months ago, keeping the same type and speed of RAM. I didn't have any gains in mind other than DCS and other programmes are recommending 32 gig as the optimal amount to have when running their stuff under load so I did it for that because I like to be optimal with my hardware and give it room to manoeuvre. After having it in the pooter and using it a lot since installation I only have a couple of observations because there has been little to observe: No noticeable increase in load times, visuals, handling either to BoS or DCS or any programme. On my pooter '46 and BoS are quick loaders and DCS is usually slow. BoS settings are ultra whilst DCS is a mixture of high and medium settings, these giving me frame rates in the 90s and low 100s the pooter feels more stable in general, feeling smoother and I don't get the occasional 'overclocking warning' from my Asus X99 motherboard I used to have with 16 gig. This was cleared by going into the bios and changing the RAM setting from XMP back to auto, something it did on it's own sometimes after the pooter had been under load ie. playing 46, BoS or DCS for a few hours. My view is that whilst I can't see any noticeable gains I am happy that, along with my other hardware, I have more than enough RAM to cope with anything my programmes ask of it for a few years to come and that everything is working better in the background. To give clarity, my other hardware, mostly two years plus old, is: Asus X99-A motherboard Intel i7 5720 running at 3.3ghz 32 gig of Corsair 3000 MHz Vengeance RAM 850 watt Corsair power supply 2 x asus 1070gtx FTW in SLI Creative Fatality soundcard Asus 27" 2560 x 1440 144hz monitor with Gsync and secondary BenQ 19" monitor Cheerzen
  11. I've been playing GBS/BoX single player and multiplayer and thinking that I would like to play it more often with you guys. I believe the consensus of those that have it is that it is fun and that it is possible to go online with eachother relatively easily. This has been the case for a few weeks now as I have hosted some missions and Arthur has kindly provided a server for us to use on a map rotation basis...as far as I am aware no-one had any major issues with connecting to either of us or suffered from issues online whilst flying on our servers. We both run a mods server but you don't need mods to fly with us, just have mods enabled in your game, once that has been enabled most join us easily. The biggest issue I have found with a bunch of us flying together is that the mission selection can be affected due to people having a limited selection of aircraft but I am sure that will resolve itself in time as people adopt the game and aquire modules in the future as it becomes clearer that this is a fun, interesting and great looking way to take off, fly, shoot down, bomb the crap out of things and land again......something we are very used to. I'm not suggesting we replace '46 with GBS/BoX as the Dogz preferred fun platform because we all have our preferences to what we fly and there are dedicated nights for other games available to cater for this. What I am asking is what people feel about Tuesday nights being dedicated to GBS/BoX. What we could have is: Sunday 46 Monday DCS Tuesday GBS/BoX Thursday CloD Watcha think? Cheerzen
  12. I heard that some of you peeps had obtained an A4 from somewhere? Could I have a link please? Edit...found it! https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=224989
  13. Useful link here chaps https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/41082-tips-flying-p-47/?tab=comments#comment-694959 The supercharger and turbosupercharger in the key mappings are completely separate mechanisms and are not linked on the P47....on this aircraft only the turbosupercharger mapping is relevant, the supercharger mapping is relevant to the I.16, Lagg3, Yaks, La5, Pe2 and A20. Did some checks just to make sure they aren't affected by each other before I changed my settings. I've done the linking of the throttle, RPM and turbosupercharger (shows as 'supercharger' lever in cockpit). It works but I haven't tested it much in flight. Cheerzen

    DCS sale fellows

    Would be very happy to do a walk around and basics on the Viggen for those that would like to. PMing could sort a day and time I'm sure

    Persian Gulf Map?

    I have the Persian Gulf map and it is gorgeous. What it does however is up the game folder size, I have Caucasus, Nevada, Normandy and Persian Gulf and they all total up to more than 90gb...Nevada and Persian Gulf are both about 32gb in size. This puts my install folder at a whopping 146gb. Something to think about too.
  18. I have this set up for offers (although mine is about 2 years old it is prettier, it's blue) if it's suitable https://www.scan.co.uk/products/16gb-(4x4gb)-corsair-ddr4-vengeance-lpx-black-pc3-24000-(3000)-non-ecc-unbuffered-cas-15-17-17-35-xm

    Skins Question

    Ah, I see what you mean now. They don't show.....you have to remember what it looks like. Sorry, I over complicated what was a simple question.
