  1. This weeks BoS update is rather more involved than most being a complete re-install of the game. Worth a read of the dev diary; http://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/168-developer-diary/page-2#entry90146 Before sending my present copy of the game off to the recycle bin I made a copy of my control settings....just in case You can find yours in the game folder/Data/Input.

    New Game Launcher, New Set Up

    Interesting. According to Jason this will be the last aircraft introduced into BoBP as it'll need transonic flight and jet engine modelling; something they've not had to produce before. Hmmm.....once they make a jet I can't see them not wanting to make more. We know Han likes the idea of a Korean war sim..... Nice looking model.
  3. At last; someone is fiddling with icon mods What do you think of this? No big pointy arrows or distance markers, etc. Would this be good for new starters to the game or using VR? Installs via JSGME. https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/38978-icon-mod/?tab=comments#comment-656864 Oh yeah; I've been using this too. It's great, no more dayglo nav lights visible from ten miles away...... https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/38451-adjusted-navigation-lights-mod/

    Dedicated DCS evening

    Had a bit of a break through thanks to Sheriff's DCS link graphics tuning thread and my game is now running in that sweet spot 'twixt eye candy and playability 'course, now I've got to re-map all the bloody controls to my new throttle unit.............. Oh yeah; Sheriff's link to graphics thread on ED forums - very useful https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=201600

    Need a force feedback base for your WartHog?

    I don't think so. Obviously, must be something similar but this is whats inside these things;

    Surving RAF Pilots from the Battle of Britain

    The convention in these things is to accord the rank you held when your service comes to an end FT. He almost certainly would have been a P/O during the BoB - it's the lowest rank of RAF commissioned officer. Wing Commander Elkington of 1 Squadron would almost certainly have been a P/O during the BoB too.

    I'd delete everything except the single, stock coop that comes with the game and install the above, yes.

    Yep, the update to version 3.005 has done something to the .msnbin file. None of the coops in the vault nor anything I've got or anyone else has got will now work. However, that nice man TX_Tips is on the case and has already updated his coop missions to the latest version.

    Geoffrey Wellum Obituary from The Times

    I've met Geoffrey Wellum a few times in recent years. One of my closest friends retired to Mullion a few years ago and Geoffrey enjoyed the pub and the local chippy too. The Times has it slightly incorrect in that he didn't live in Mullion, he lived in Predannack - a few hundred yards away. He moved there as he had fond memories of flying from the airfield there in the war. Although I knew who he was I never asked him about his RAF service but he did have lots of interesting memories of Walthamstow (a place I knew well as a kid) before the war and before it became the sh#thole it is today. May he rest in well deserved peace.
  16. Update your game now to fly FW190 A8/F8!
  17. I think that is a good idea as it gives plenty of time and a tangible target date.
  18. Sorry Mick, not trying to rain on your idea it's just this bit "BOX would remain every other Tuesday". I thought the agreed plan is that BOX will - in the not too distant future now - become the regular Tuesday night fixture.
  19. I was under the impression we would eventually be moving up to BoX being every Tuesday as we gradually transition away from '46.

    Models from your childhood

    I can't give you any photos either.☹️ Between the ages of nine and twelve I built dozens - all Airfix WW2 RAF types - and had them hanging from the ceiling of my bedroom where I used to wish they could really fly. Of course forty years later they really do fly - on the screen of my PC. As to the models I built; one day I came home from school to find my eldest brother home on leave equipped with Thunderflashes (naughty boy!). He and my other brothers had strung the washing line from my bedroom window and by using bent coat hangers and filling the fuselages with black powder were "re-enacting the battle of britain". The bastards had my prized collection running down the clothes line in flames!

    DCS F/A-18 Released to Client Stable version

    I got rid of the purple haze by getting rid of SweetFX/Reshade. Game performance for me is a bit of a mess. Even low settings - which make the game look very average - is a lumpy, bumpy, choppy ride ending in a lock up at the moment.
