Is there a manual for this sim anywhere?
« on: December 22, 2013, 10:03:20 am »
I have it downloaded and installed, runs good. Is there a manual or readme for the game that shows the regular workings and key assignments?
Also, when you guys are at the main forum page and click to go into a room, do you get a couple ads that pop up first?

Thanks for responses to both.

I figured out the ad problem. There was a program installed on the computer called Scorpion Saver. This is an adware program thast got installed sereptituously. If you're having a simlar problem, check for it and uninstall it. You may need to open the tools option in your browser and click the manage add-ons option to see if it is displayed. If so, disable or remove it there first, then check in your programs section of your control panel and uninstall it there.

Now, about the key settings and manual,,,,,,,,

Next topic... When I first launcched the program, I was given an option to assign the game to a specific network domain and I chose the home use option. It appears I shut off access for online play by doing this, because I do not see a multiplay option other than network available in the game. How can I turn the networking options back on?
Thanks.

Gos,  no manual that I know of.  I just went into the controls section and assigned the controls I need to my joystick.  If you find you are missing something you can pause the game, go into controls and set it up.

There is no multiplayer, just a bunch of single player missions for the 109 and Lagg 3.

I'm getting a message that the master server is not connected. Is there a time limit available for when the game can be run?
It appears this is the case. Thanks for the assistance.

Ah, OK. It is now starting to make some sense.
Strange that we cannot even start the game until the master server is up and running, especially since there is no multiplayer capability even when the server is up and running.

Thanks for the response.

The server is to validate your account, like signing on online in RoF.

Now I'm confused again. Is there an offline game capability? Can anyone start the game and go to the options menu when the server is not operational?
I started getting other messages as well, and reinstalled thinking something got messed up with the install. Now I'm getting the following message when I enter my ID and password then click continue:

#10027: Packed data verification fail.
Modified packed date files are not allowed in MODS OFF mode. Please restore original packed data files and remove third-party ones.

I then have to close that window, which takes me back to the login screen.

 :o :P :-\

You can't play at all unless the server is online and it authenticates against it - which prevents you from playing at all unless it's during the open access times

I know this thread is a bit old, but just to confirm in case there was still confusion about a user guide, you can find it in the forum here:  http://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/16752-il-2bos-user-manual-released-first-edition-english/
