  1. But, that's the best part! (besides the visuals maybe) That is incredibly sweet
  2. Finally! That left aileron control wire drove me crazy
  3. @Butzzell, is JG1 playing a particular side tonight?
  4. Given that my wife and I are just the two of us, we decided to give Joyeux Noël a go after Christmas dinner. What a great movie, very touching without getting (too) cheap. @Snaggle, thanks for the tip! Merry Christmas, everyone!
  5. Your Christmas tree looks amazing, nice form and great decorations. Also my compliments on the pickle, I can't help but experiencing a strange form of pickle envie... Here's our tree:
  6. @Snaggle Good to hear that those horrible blocky crashes are a thing in the past for you and that you will now be able to crash in high resolution Seriously, your positive impressions seem consistent with what I have seen online so far: I don't recall seeing anyone who was unimpressed. I have a request, though: would you mind doing some IL2 test runs, preferably on some busy servers (i.e. having many concurrent planes)? I would be very curious to know how your CPU + GPU handle the G2, what FPS you typically see as well as what your lowest observed FPS is. Also, about your configura
  7. You lucky man Please do let us know what your experience is!
  8. I already mentioned this in the debriefing in TS yesterday, but I had a great evening flying with the SCG and JG1 pilots. Because I would consider myself a beginner (WW2) pilot, the PvE missions are much more enjoyable for me as I actually have the time to experiment and learn flying the aircraft. When we fly PvP, I simply get eliminated before being able to try to improve and I make no progress at all. I hope that leaves enough of a challenge for the other more seasoned pilots when we fly PvE.
  9. Amazing, it looks like "yes" has a solid lead over "yes". Who'd have thought? On a more serious note: the proposal makes completely sense, though for me personally, I'd have to vote "no" (if I were able to), playing in VR myself. I would understand if a majority of pilots would favour reverting to RoF.
  10. Robin Takolander demonstrates the ruthless fight for domination in a Sabre vs. Mig 19 confrontation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=buWWCMjP-hQ
  11. FYI, I had such a blast yesterday. I love the joint missions; it is incredible to see the ground troups advance and do their thing from the air. Even better when there is actually some useful complementary action between the air and the ground troups. Also, it was great flying with the SCG pilots who were most courteous and hospitable. We had some great moments yesterday and I'm looking forward to repeating the experience when there will be another occasion to do so (soon?).
  12. Sounds like fun, I will most likely join to see if I can provide some semi-useful air support.
  13. Thanks for all the replies, as most people indicated they tend to prefer "Either side", I'll do the same.
  14. @Vonrd Thanks for the heads up! I had the same question as @Etzel I'm fine either way. Unless there is a preference for other JG1 members to do otherwise, I think I would tend towards "Central preferred". Does anyone have an explicit preference? Above all, I would prefer to fly among fellow JG1 pilots
  15. Great news indeed, congrats Hotlead!
  16. I must admit I am a bit dumbfounded. Thank you very much for the recognition, even though I have to insist that it is only because of the support and efforts of others that I have been able to take care of the coordination of the Spring campaign. There are many people who did a great job!
  17. Thought I'd just add my €0.07 Though music tends to distract me while I am working or thinking, I love anything Palestrina as it is like a cool mountain stream trickling through my thoughts. Bach is great as well, especially his fugues. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VBEwP95zNGk&t Other music I can pleasantly bear while working is the requiem of Mozart, especially the Kyrie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ChRm7XUMPBI When I want music to scream for me when it would be socially awkward if I did it myself, I have all kinds of music. This is an nice example: h
  18. Looks pretty nice, the 87º FOV is a pity though and that price... It seems you only need one kidney, right?
  19. Congratulations Hotlead, welll done sir!
  20. Feel free to play in ROF but indeed, I'd have to pass.
  21. Welcome McDonnell, looking forward to flying (more) with you!
  22. First sentence in the post: The 4.005 update is inbound very soon. Please make any backups you may need as the update may screw something up like key mapping or tracks etc. Matter of fact maybe just create an entire backup of your main IL-2 folder just in case. Ah... Maybe should have read the post before starting the download
  23. Hi Dutch, welcome. My compliments for your name
  24. Nice catch! I think this may be an excellent opportunity to fill in the unforgivable Bodenplatte shaped void in my collection
  25. Also, there is the Kaiserschlacht mini campaign which is absolutely worth while! https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/56339-kaiserschlacht-flying-circus-mini-campaign/
