IL_2 Cliffs of Dover / Re: After-action report, Tuesday 8/20/19
« on: August 22, 2019, 08:38:59 am »
S!~
 Good day all. I appears the TWC group has again changed their campaign map- with welcome additions to an older map. Since the end of the second campaign- all ground static aircraft and most aaa had been removed from the map- with slim to none air-air to engage. That said- we have found a way to locate and destroy numerous Allied assets. So - tonight was a bit different.
 Jumped on the server- and found Kendy  ready to go at Marqis West. Took off in a 109E4-B / 4 -50kg's - 72% fuel for luck - and climbed out over Cape Griz Nez- eastern morning sun illuminating my rumbling cockpit. Over comms I hear Kendy not far behind me0- planning a bomb run near the Dover coast. AS I pass mid-channel- 4km- I notice far more targets lined up on Hawkinge- Lympe- and Littlestone. I decide to break port to Littlestone - and after a shallow high speed dive - arm and drop all 4-50's on a line of 12 Wellington bombers. Luckily my drop is true- and blast 9 bombers- as intense flak touches my 109 up ever so slightly. "Littlestone bombers destroyed" pops up- and now Kendy calls out numerous hostile contacts in the area. As I prepare to climb out and position to engage superior numbers- hot tracers tear past my canopy- and tickle my wings. Human pilot- white winged Spitfire- TWC! I double barrel roll- skid my aircraft- Spitfire rolls over top and loses me in the 70-80 flak bursts. I dive  for 6-7 sec's- zoom over the top- roll into Spifires 5 - and burst fire machine gun into his fuselage. Spit breaks too hard- spins a bit- I roll back in- blew off his left side of everything- and he bails and  drowns. Ouch. Lucky for me - flak and a poor initial bounce - or I'd be hanging on some driftwood somewhere.
 Climb out- cruise to Hawkinge- and proceed to finish what Kendy started- the annialation of the base. He blasts the hangars- and I go guns on 6 Spitfires- we leave the base w/o a single target left. Rtb- re-arm to Marqis.'
 In the interest of time- and my work today- similar enagements thereafter- and it was nice to fly with Gos over the channel. TWC has made a good move by putting back in targets to find and destroy- and I think this game still has a lot to offer. Good times . Take care all.

Technical Help / Re: TV vs Monitor
« on: June 29, 2019, 02:56:41 pm »
S!~
 Like others - after having numerous monitors and TV's  - I am using 32 in TV 1080p -refresh 120hz- motion rate. That said- you have to set the monitor to gaming- and it runs well w/o tearing on a Intel 7700 4.2 w. a 1080 8g card. Best air-air spotting- best quick zoom in - and seems to run reliably.
 Its a given that gaming monitors are the best- but the high res seems to be no benefit when flying around seeing a whole lot of nothing until they're up close and dangerous.
 I have a Dell 24 in gaming monitor running @ 2k w. a 144hz refresh. It is also imo inferior for Cliffs of Dover sim flying- and find again the $200 - $179 smart tv's a hell of a  value. That darn Dell was $600. ouch.
 If you buy a 32in 120 motion rate at 1080p- if not happy- box it back up and drive back to Best Buy and say it didn't fit. Kind of true! Good Luck Agil- blast away.

 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 »
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!

 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!.
