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

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

 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!

General Discussion / Short Travels and short barrels

 Hey Wardogs. Its been awhile- in fact Dec. 22nd , 2016. The last SoW night. With Christmas , the end of a great Storm of War campaign, and work , New years , etc. - I haven't flown a single sortie. Been working 7 days a week- np - and just last week aligned schedules so I could dip out of state and again chase some feral hogs down in Oklahoma. 13 Northmen - aka Minnesotans - descend on an approx. 200 acre hog ranch- and chase hogs in and out of woods , fields , fence lines, coolies ( dangerous) , and anywhere these tasty destructive hogs go.
 This year I brought a M1916 Short barrel Spanish Mauser  / orig. chambered in 7mm - but was re-chambered in approx. 1960 by the Spanish military to the NATO round - 7.62 x 51 ( .308 Win). Again I decided on old school iron sights, and carried one of my .45's - a Glock 41 long slide with hot rounds. Got three of the hogs- all boars- and harvested 52 lbs., 53.5 lbs , and 87 lbs.- respectively- from these swine. One heart shot ( found the heart blown off its arteries inside the chests cavity) from about 80meters - one behind the ear shot - standing after a short chase- quick shot - down immed. - and then another approx. 70-80m shot thru some underbrush and a very small opening- belly / rib shot -then finished it with another to the head in close - about 20 M.
 Good fun- very interesting to see how many hogs are running crazy down south - imo- were they here in Minnesota- we'd have killed most of them- farmed the remainder- and started a pig leather business. Everyone got 3- some 4 - and we left the ranch with 48 cleaned and bagged pigs- to be butchered and smoked, roasted, made into sausages , jerkies, and devoured. Its about time for a modern rifle next year- for I had some long shots I could have taken- but with the shorty carbine- decided to wait and hunt in close. One pix with my Kraut $ss checking out a boar - killed with a heart shot- dropped dead on the spot. Good times. Note the "pussy-pad" I had my tailor sew onto my blaze-orange vest- from a 1940's era cowhand ranch coat collar- saved the sheepskin from that busted coat and re-purposed for firing 3.5 in 12gauge magnum rounds over and over. Love it. Take care guys. Tony

 Hey hey. Looks like Storm of War 4.0 has finally found its end. Either tonight or tomorrow is the last day. That said- I'm free this eve. to fly- but have family over again tomorrow- Thur. 12/22 - so no flying for me- unless way later.
 Hope we can get some good numbers again like last week- fly together- have some fun- and shoot something. I'm getting on around 6pm EST - give or take. Until then- polish your brass and oil  your actions- because The Wardogs are about to growl real loud!

  Hey hey. Tonight it looks like its time for a little SoW! Triple points and triple the fun await. We have a full contingent of aircraft available at both Crepon and Liegescourt. I flew a 2 transport sorties Mon. eve- bringing in the 2 E3's I lost Sunday- ouch.
 Flew a third sortie with Badger- quickly found a large raid of Wellingtons near Calias-shot down two before getting hit hard- glided back to I think Calais Coquelle. The damaged airframe has ben repaired and guns recalibrated.
 Tonight- earlier than usual for me ( unless the wife has "plans" for me- in which case Ill be a bit later)- and join up on AKA SoW comms. Hope to see some of you there! And bring your battle face with- its going to be a blast-oh!

IL_2 Cliffs of Dover / Call to Arms! Sun . 12/4/15 SoW

 Storm of War- Ver.4.0 - will end in about 3 weeks. It has been a lot of fun- sometimes tough- and with some challenges. I think AKA has quietly made an impact- primarily in the outstanding juggernaut of a pilot- Jericho. Also- Knutsac has joined him in the very exclusive 50 missions / no deaths category- and made us all proud. That said- there are others who grind it out- and show up to make an impact- and really just to have fun.
 AKA has - as always- welcomed others to join in the fun- join our comms- and together- as a Luftwaffe team- fly and fight over the simulated English channel. I'm sure others have noted the leadership abilities of the excellent Wiley- Bucky - and er' uh'..well those guys-lol- who I see others squads drawn to. This makes for a stronger Luftwaffe - and the admins of the SoW can be found in our comms- imo wanting to fly with our small contingent of dedicated Cliffs pilots. WE don't always agree- be we generally always support each other- and follow the example that history holds to be true. Fly together, help your mates , don't leave anyone behind, and have a plan- if just a loose one. Also- fun and excitement is waiting - but generally after a longish sweep- or when you don't expect it.
 I believe it is out of respect for what the very capable admin Dietrich has done for this sim- that we support both him and SoW these last few weeks. I'm going to fly this Sunday- maybe this eve.- Sat. 12/3 - and midweek- where AKA has been absent for over a month.
I hope to see all available pilots online- representing both our outstanding squad- and our leadership team who has given their pers. time to this super fun sim- Cliffs. Until then...God speed.

Approx. mission time rally 1pm EST- some earlier- some later. Be advised that the server has been filling up- so earlier can be beneficial IMO - we should use SoW / AKA comms- as some of the 3/JG51 boys can be a bit stuffy about their tidy comms being ran by not just us- but others who follow AKA-/:^) Silence can be deadly- or extremely selfish and self serving.

IL_2 Cliffs of Dover / Wed. 10/19/16 SoW Rally Cry !
« on: October 17, 2016, 08:48:48 am »

 Hey fellas! Been busy with fall home projects-aka "getting buttoned down for a mid-west winter"  - and haven't been online for almost 2 wks. That said- this Wed. 10/19/16- we should try to muster a group and put 71st on notice that they don't run Wed. nights!
 In the past we - imo- have started a bit late- and should try to time the server so we got online right as it re-starts. This is prob. about 7:30- 8:30 pm EST. We can run out of Crepon- or the much closer to England Liegescourt. This can be determined on the spot- that night- based on current intel and pilots present.
 This is the time of SoW that often needs a little push- and a little effort to participate. AKA is putting up a very good showing- due in part to Jericho being a complete juggernaut - and to the overall winner attitude that permeates this squad. If we can put up 5- 6 pilots this Wed. we can maybe p/u 2-4 more associated pilots- and both sweep the Channel- and put up a force that can handle the often large flights of the 71st- and their cronies.
 Lets try to keep on eye on the SoW server- and try to time our arrival with its re-start- generally a bit earlier than we have been.
Good luck fellas- and heres to hoping we get good numbers Wed. - take-off and land together- and ultimately have a great time flying Cliffs of Dover- in the challenging skies of SoW. Be there or be square... ;)

S!~ AKA_Blasto

PS: Also- a little earlier start also allows for a second sortie- which many times can be very fruitful- for kills and for recon flights!

Edit: Look's as if the server will restart at approx 6:30 pm EST...be advised!

IL_2 Cliffs of Dover / SoW Wed. 9/14/16 -Spec. Event
« on: September 14, 2016, 08:55:34 am »

 Tonight SoW should be a bit busier and a bit more fun. A number of us are planning on getting together to fly at about 8-9 pm EST- give or take. Hope to see you guys in and flying. See the link to the SoW forum for the post regarding this.
 Lets try to give this phase a chance- as the last one ended abruptly amidst some BS. If everything isn't perfect- or you don't get your favorite plane, give it a go anyhow. Keep in mind Wiley is our advocate- and has both AKA's and SoW's interests in mind- so I say we give it the ol' AKA effort.
 That said - we are seeing far less action so far mid-week- which is a great time to get two-three bombers up with escort and  bomb their sh#t back to the stone age . Also a perfect time to recon targets- which also should be escorted.
 Heres to Phase 4.0- and here's to seeing AKA up this eve- or soon if you can make it!

IL_2 Cliffs of Dover / SoW Warm-up Tues. / Wed .
« on: August 02, 2016, 12:00:35 pm »
S!~
 Hey guys- thinking about flying this eve in ATAG- about 9pm EST. Flying German side in order to get ready to fly for the Luftwaffe in the soon to be SoW online campaign.
 I have been flying German a little bit- and find stick time very important with dialing in the BF109 guns- with the different angles needed to land strikes as opposed to the wider patterns with the Allied birds.
 Hope to catch you guys online either tonight - Tues.- or Wed. - or both! We load up the Blue side- and climb to 7-8km! B/z banzai for the Limey's.... 8)

 Heres to AKA_Matte for achieving 50 missions! We all were rooting for you to make it - and I'm sure you didn't have to cheat or game the game like some of the character-less Blue players / cheats. Great job!

 Hey guys. With the cold weather upon us- or some of us - I fly both Tues. and Wed. on SoW server after approx. 7-7:30pm EST.
The map rotates every 5 hours- so I typically try to get into the server right when the map rotates- so I can be at alt. when the first raids start to show up on radar.
 This eve. I'm going to again track the server prior to the change- and if too long- just join. We had some fun last night- many kills garnered from the RED side- and also took a beating from some vicious AI gunners!
 Here's to hoping to see you fellas online this eve. and / or tomorrow in the Storm of War server. Get some blasting in soon- as the server will re-set I believe Dec. 6th. Cheers!    8)
