Thank you bb, I do indeed get that impression but... and it's a big but, providing it doesn't involve getting naked, then that's fine and dandy with me.

BTW, does UP3 + 4.10.1 fully support TIR 6DOF? Only able to utilise 3 out of 6 modes, ie roll, pitch and yaw. Believe I may have read somewhere that this was not fully implemented until the release of 4.11.1?

Hurrah! Conky, Bounder, that worked wonderfully, thank you!  ;D

I've heard many stories of grown men weeping into their char at the prospect of a medical 'examination' by Matron!  Shall certainly do my best to avoid the wards at all costs. :o

If I see any of you chaps on TS then I will certainly pootle along and introduce myself.

Thank you BalDaddy, the link worked just fine.  8)

You could say I'm in bit of a pickle at the moment. The situation is thus - I'm moving house next week and the advance party have already made off with some supplies, including my gaming rig.

Over the last few days I've attempted to play IL-2 on a pretty old machine, albeit running Win 7 x64. My experience has been mixed to say the least, with the main problem being mouse cursor fixation within the non respondent GUI. A few minutes of Alt - Tabbing normally sorts this issue but not all the time.

The other problem I have encountered is widescreen (1920x1200) support within UP3 RC4, it really does not play ball. Normally a quick conf.ini edit sorts this, but for some reason UP3 is ignoring those edited settings? If I add widescreen support (included with UP3) via the JSGME then the game version is altered and is no longer compatible with online servers running UP3 RC4.

So gents, I may delay my online activities for a week, that is until I'm firmly and comfortably strapped within my familiar pit back at HQ.

Hope you understand.

Apologies for the long winded post and greater apologies for not posting up in the 'Tech Support' section.

Oh.. Conky, have one of those fandangled head widget things and I wouldn't fly without it. ;D

Absolutely gents, as soon as the UP site peers out  from hibernation, I will be there.

As for being the 'dish of the day', that unfortunately, is a foregone conclusion. My derrière is often handed to me on a platter during these DF server missions, it's just not cricket!

So, in the meantime whilst I await the baptism of fire, what aircraft should I be cutting my teeth into? The choice and variations seems quite bewildering to a novice and I'm not sure where to start.

A few more questions if you don't mind?

- Currently using a Warthog HOTAS but have a MS Sidewinder FFB gathering dust in the loft, is it worth recommissioning the old boy? Does IL-2 take advantage of such HW?

- Multiple IL-2 installs. It seems there are three main variations of IL-2?

1) The most recent unmodded release.

2) 4.10.1 + UP - The one you guys run.

3) Some version inc HSFX.

Is it possible to have all three installs to cater for all occasions?

Thank you Gentlemen,

Thank you gentlemen, I now have the necessary details. As explained to the right honourable Father Ted, I will be in touch shortly once my install is up to the correct standard.

Regards and good hunting.

Evening chaps, Fitz led me to believe this was the place for a quaff of the good stuff? Rotten service and lousy ale at the last club, ol' Johnnie was lest best pleased I can tell you!

The long and the short, well, where do I start? As an avid fan of DCSW and particularly the Flaming Cliffs franchise, I have decided to reach out and expand my horizons. Heinous I know, but I have never entertained the idea of being behind the stick of an old WWII aircraft, not until very recently that is. Maybe 10 plus years too late, but having fired up IL-2 1946, tweaked the GFX a little and flown a few on / offline missions with extremely little or no comprehension of the virtual time machine I had just embroiled myself in.. all I can say it's, rather spiffing, splendid, glorious, I want more!

Now herein lies the problem. I'm a very active member of a DCSW / FC squad and thoroughly enjoy the experience and benefits that brings. Most of all, I love the camaraderie and passion that is highly evident amongst the like minded folk within this niche hobby of ours. So, it's with a heavy heart that I currently find myself unable to commit to a CfC application, although I would certainly like to be considered, if possible, for the occasional flight with you chaps as when the opportunity arises?

As mentioned, I have very little experience (a few hours) within this sim but would love to learn more with an alley of like minded merrymakers!
