IL_2 Cliffs of Dover / Re: Squadron Cliffs of Dover Scernario

 TWC pw as of now...pathfinder. Fatal asks that we join TWC TS-as they are testing...yet I find it uncomfortable to fight against others on the same channel...and his reasons have me in a quandary. One might even...for now...feign ignorance of this unpublished request. Good luck pilots. I'm hunting feral pigs again in OK-and will be home to fly and join the fight soon. Tomorrow we enter the woods at dawn...pray for those swine...for soon they die. /:^)

IL_2 Cliffs of Dover / Possible Post - Steam Patch Cliffs:Blitz Fix
« on: March 26, 2018, 10:56:08 am »

 Hey fellas. Yes- there was a jacked update to the Steam platform- which in turn caused numerous Steam based games to not run- or to crash. Specifically- Cliff of Dover : Blitz.
 Its appears Sat. 3/24/18 - Team Fusion found a fix- provided it to the Steam team- who then applied said fix and corrected the undisclosed problem. Ok. Fine. But wait!
 Many of us had no fix- the game still would not load. So- I went thru a number of troubleshooting ideas- wont waste your time- but lastly found this to work.

Steam / Library / Games / Cliffs of Dover: Blitz / Uninstall ( Don't worry- the game remains somewhere within Steam) / clear cache in Steam downloads / re-install game thru Steam/ ( your settings in game should be saved automatically) - cross fingers - run game.

Hope this helps - it did for me. Questions? PM me or find me online tonight or tomorrow and Ill try to help in any way I can.

Good Luck !

 Cool story Clutter! He's lucky I wasn't in that system with my Klingon battle cruiser- would have Kling-ton torpedoed his starry arse back to the Orian Nebula- lol
 
Good show!

IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad / Whats the starting point with BoX - etc ?
« on: February 22, 2018, 09:09:30 am »

 Hey fellas. Time to give this a go. Where does a guy start with this? I saw some 50% off deals on B of Stalingrad and Moscow.
The premium packages have more aircraft...is it worth it? I know very little about these sims- and would like to start out on the right foot. Cliffs of Dover: Blitz and all its Team Fusion bandaids will fizzle out- or stay the same Battle of Britain fun-ness- but the future is BoX.  Hoping for some direction for my game purchases! Got my system up to snuff- now its time for a new challenge.

 Thanks guys!

 Bought one very similar a month ago.
 IBUYPOWER with the  same everything except I7 7700K @ 4.2 / 1080 8g card - slapped a 27in gaming mon. @144hz- looks unbelievable.

 Test recorded / 5 / 5 mate . I cant even believe this. I was jumping into the forums right now- a quick squad check- and thought about the other night. One of many thoughts was- Wolf - good to hear his voice- that guy has a good heart -solid. Miss him - not in a weird way- but were there a sim . fight somewhere - sometime- I want him with me.  To the end- or at least until re-fly or next week-lol. Right on man. Hope you fly BOX everything with us - because the path forward is Battle of ____ .... this has been a good test.

 Cool. The latest Cliffs of Dover game - "Blitz" - is  pretty good. These additional Il2 games hopefully will be at least to the level of Blitz.
There is only so much time in the day- and with every great game that comes out- I find it hard to keep track .
 The BOS- the BOM - IL2 - Cliffs - in addition to all the jet and chopper sims you guys fly. Wow. But like Recon said - this Bodenplate game has some serious killers in it - and would most likely be a blast. Without bombers it may be a stretch to look for anything beyond potential jabo flights for ground and pound- but the high altitude contrail fight would be epic.  Thanks for sharing Sully.

 Bucky- re-name the Il2 : Cliffs of Dover folder - not the MOD folder. Also - if you look in Steam - Library - the game is already there. You just have to download it. The MOD Cliffs / the original Cliffs / and the Cliffs- Blitz are all basically separate games. You can run any of them individually. That said - the update is good - its free - and it's better than before . I've just now bought a I7 7700K @ 4.2 / GTX 1080 8gig card - etc for the game. Its about time for Stalingrad / Moscow - but Ill wait until I have the new system up and running well. Sticking a 40in 4k tv w/ it - we'll see how it goes.
 Good luck ! When you go to start the game - treat it like its a new game- that you use the same control settings for. Also - if you're getting horrible fps - disable Extended Shadows and run some things like grass / trees / and buildings on low - until you can test them higher.

PS: Gos - trying running the game in Pseudo mode to free up your mouse. If not - check ATAG Blitz bug thread to find solution- its been addressed I believe. God speed!.

 Pretty fun. Loaded up a BF109E4B / 73% fuel / full ammo/ 4 50kg bombs. Took off from Tangmere- thinking first we were CAP- but then loadedbombs on for a run up towards Redhill. In the loading up- missed it on comms that Bucky was coming up from Farmsborough. Climbed out- looking to meet with Bucky- was found by Stetcher and Tepes. They guided me to an obscure- difficult to spot from more than 1500m crook in some rivers- W of Redhill. Was directed to drop on a factory building next to some factory stacks. Armed bombs- dove at a deep angle- dropped from about 500m- direct hit- fires. Pulled out- climbed and met Bucky near Maidstone. Had taken aaa fire on my bomb run- so had no airspeed or altimeter gauges. Bucky made a drop- or thought he did- later looked at stats and saw no bomb loaded- but fun practice run anyhow. Flew back S past Wilmington- then W up the coast towards Tangemere- where others were reporting enemy fighters. Got to the area- immediately got  hit by enemy fire-wounded bad- dove and made an emergency landing at Tangemere. Looks like  I landed with 2 of my 50kg bombs still with me-hehe. Some script.

- Power plant No. 7 in sector AO24 was hit by an air attack and has been shut down.Enemy broadcasts report a massive fire has spread into the nearby town, causing the death of 1 civilians. Observers blame Axis_AKA_Blasto|Detonation
 11.42 - Axis_AKA_Blasto gets back to base in sector AJ20.
 11.42 - Axis_AKA_Blasto is moved to the hospital. The surgeon on call checks him and then leaves him to nervous and inexperienced students, who stitch and bandage the wound in his left lung...
 11.42 - Axis_AKA_Blasto returns his Bf-109E-4B#04 to the AXIS base in sector AJ20. Unloads a total of 2,120 rounds of ammo, 2 bombs. His Bf-109E-4B#04 can't fly due to 13 damaged systems

Great fun. Will get up to speed and have to be added to the Axis side. had to fly under Axis_AKA_Blasto- whatever. I'm in for Sunday. Love jabo runs.
