IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 / Re: I now have a working HSFX 7.03!!
« on: November 23, 2018, 02:41:55 pm »
Am I not allowed to fly Allied for IL2 1946? I am kinda a US plane nerd and would prefer, if possible without upsetting the sides, to fly US iron with Brit planes as my second choice.

Also, it said I needed a password to join, but the server did appear to come up.

Correct, the hump is indeed an ECM package container and not much else.

I'm LOVING the Scooter!! My pops flew early models out of Glenview right before he left the Marines to pursue an airline job and I have heard tons of stories about the little "one holer". I've experienced the guns issue as well, bombing is tough in it, but I reverted back to a 0 set gunsight and TLAR method to hit larger targets accurately, and near misses will kill guns and soft targets. I've noticed that at correct AoA and decent rate the final seems very long and shallow? An yeah, them brakes lol......I have yet to make a successful ground landing as I always run off the end of the concrete.

I flew to the boat after logging about an hour in the little striker. Flew a bolter on the first pass, a fair 2 wire on the second....not bad for a dedicated Huey driver!! The hardest thing for me is getting the power setting correct for the turn, she balloons easily configured for landing in a turn, or at least that's my take, and I found myself forcing the plane through a decent while turning for the groove. I was 10kts slow in the turn, but recovered into the groove nicely for the trap. Overall I'm excited and hopefully we can maybe get some Scooter ops going as a unit at some point, possibly along with the A-7 mod? Here's some screenies:

IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad / Re: The patch is out
« on: November 23, 2018, 08:12:05 am »
I was home for Weds evening, yesterday and today. First thing I did was hop on and patch up for flight ops.

Weds: "The other GreyWolf" made a skin for me, I loaded it up and went on the Berloga DF server to try my hand at Jug vs breathers. Went 7 and 1, and my one was a low alt turn fight vs a late model 109. He had to earn it, over 3 turns to break my 180 line, 6 to kill me. That gunsight though......190's would dive on me, I'd make them overshoot, then make a long distance kill on them. Love it!!

Thurs: Flew with Mo briefly against AI, we killed 5 enemy planes, 2 110's for me, 2 FW190's and a Stuka for Mo. Lovely aircraft!!

I have yet to go after anything on the ground with it, but if killing fighters is an indication of just how lethal this thing really is then, well, game over Fritz!!

My boat is still in drydock up in JAX, I am hoping we'll be in the water next week and home by next weekend. Could be a pipe dream, but if you see me then you'll know I'm back!

So WheelsUpCAVU on M4T was kind enough to provide a link to an uncorrupted HSFX series download and I got it all installed and it booted just fine in stock 4.12.2, HSFX, and Expert modes. If we have any special mods we are using here can someone link me to them so I can get them going?

I've explained to some of you guys that I fly DCS as a CSAR Huey pilot on Sunday evenings, but I would like to take a night off, when my boat is in, and fly HSFX with you guys. What a game!! I've been with it from before Ace Expansion Pack was around, I LOVE 1946 series!!
