BETA PATCH v.1.08.18956 - August 3, 2012
 
Quick patch notes

Extensive investigation showed that crashes were often connected with the “not officially supported” weather module. Examining some user-made missions from some online servers showed that people were using the functionality extensively. We’ve temporarily disabled it which appears to resolve a large number of online crashes.

The investigation also shows that a disproportionately large number of crashes happens while a web browser with a flash video or audio (such as youtube) is open in the background. We recommend temporarily closing your web browser, or at the very least any tabs with open flash audio or video, while playing the game.

A Effects setting was thoroughly rewritten. Setting Effects to Medium will greatly increase average FPS on most machines without greatly affecting visual quality. Note that this setting also affects the visual appearance of clouds.

Many changes to the Flight Model were made, and the work still continues. Please note that the general performance of the British aircraft is much closer to desired envelope, but the information shown on the Boost gauge is scaled incorrectly at the moment.
Known issues: temporarily disabled cloud shadows again; hit decals may appear glitched; some steam effects like punctured water radiators and wing vortices also temporarily disabled.

The main goal of this version of the patch is, once again, to locate and fix any remaining crash bugs. Please continue sending in your logs and crash dumps to ishevchenko@1cpublishing.eu

Please enable logging in your conf.ini (Log=1). If the game crashes, send us the log file it creates in your [My Documents]\1C SoftClub\il-2 sturmovik cliffs of dover folder, and any .dmp files created in a cppdump folder under the main game installation.

We recommend installing the patch on top of a clean steam installation. To ensure your steam install is clean, please right-click the game in the steam library, and select Properties – Local Files – Verity Integrity of Game Cache.

Thanks to all who have created an additional mirrors!

This is from Capt. Doggles

I'm mirroring the latest beta patch for CLOD, but my server's bandwidth (2.4 Gb/s) is maxed out at the moment. Gamekeeper just put up a mirror at AirWarfare but it's the middle of the night in Moscow so B6 won't be on to update his post, which means nobody's going to see Gamekeeper's mirror and everyone's download speeds are going to be super slow.

Here's the thread: http://forum.1cpublishing.eu/showthread.php?t=33610

Here's a link to Gamekeeper's mirror: http://airwarfare.com/sow/index.php/...tional-version

Yes and I am one. Downloading now. I will not post unless I have a problem that can not be fixed by following instructions or by reading through the forums to solve any problems I may be having. :) If I find a fix for a problem I would post it, but most of the time the fix has already been posted by some one else. By the time I finish the download, go out to lunch with my son, there will be many who have installed the beta and reported back, for that I thank you.:grin:

It ought to be. It's connected to an OC48 line, and the server itself was forged in the fires of Mt Doom. One server to rule them all.

Dano 08-03-2012 06:05 PM

Trees fixed, Hurricane startup fixed, fps - back at pre performance patch levels, so still no where near what they were but significantly better than the last beta, will do a detailed fps comparison later once there are plenty of seeders in the swarm so I can drop out for benchmarking.

priller26 08-03-2012 06:05 PM

I suppose after reverting to the clean install (verifying game) we should also delete cache, and let the new patch create a new cache file? Just curious, want to install properly. Many thanks.

Verify game files, delete cache, install patch, run game once to build new cache, then re-launch game and enjoy.

Thx Captaindoggles, both for the d/l link and the explanation above, but sorry, I am very thick when it comes to this installation process, could you specify it further?

1) I go into Steam, games library, CoD, properties, local files and then "verify integrity of game cache".

2) I delete the cache how?

3) Install patch by unpacking the .rar into which folder exactly?

Thanks!

PS: Atag is already running their server with the new patch!

David198502 08-03-2012 06:23 PM

thats what i wanted to ask....are the bombers fixed now?

ariel__s 08-03-2012 06:24 PM

For those who are still asking how to install the patch correctly, I will quote what B6 said on other thread:

If you do the integrity check, you will go back to the last official version (before all the recent betas).

If you uninstall everything, download and reinstall, it will also get you to the latest official version.

So, they do the same thing, but the integrity check takes less time. I prefer the integrity check

My checklist:


1) Verify integrity of local files (to get back to last official version)


2) Go to your documents\1c softclub\IL-2 sturmovik cliffs of dover folder and
go into the cache folder. Delete everything in there
(the game will rebuild it based on the new version next time you run the sim).


3) Extract the beta patch in the game folder
(c:\whatever_you_named_it\steam\steamapps\common\I L-2 sturmovik cliffs of dover) and let it overwrite anything it wants to overwrite


4) Run the sim one to force it to rebuild the cache.


5) Start a free flight quick mission to force it to add anything else it
might need in the cache.


6) Exit the sim.


7) Restart the sim.

Now you can test your frame rates with a clean install of the latest beta,
as well as a correct cache folder for your version. If you skip
steps 5,6,7 you might see that initially you get worse performance,
because the game might still be adding files to the cache. However,
the next time you start it, it will be better and you will get the true
performance.

2) Visit Documents/1C SoftClub/IL-2 Sturmovik Cliffs of Dover/cache and then delete the entire contents of that folder.

3) Unpack the patch into Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/il-2 sturmovik cliffs of dover and it should overwrite some files within the 'parts' folder.

That's very encouraging, however to really test it you have to go a bit higher.

The main bug in the bombsight was that it didn't adjust for the trail effect in bombing: over time, bombs lose their forward speed due to air friction and increase their downward speed due to gravity.

This is almost unnoticeable at low altitudes (that's why many people could bomb even with the bugged bombsights from 1-2km), but gets more pronounced the higher you go (bombs end up going almost straight down, so they lag behind the target if dropped from high alt)

If you really want to be sure, spawn a loaded Ju88 in the France free flight mission, set it up on autopilot with a slight climb and engage some time acceleration until you get to 4-5km of altitude, level out, pick an arbitrary target point and see how it goes. I'll also be testing this way soon.

P.S. I'm not sure, but i think that in the real Lofte one needs to input IAS and altitude (the bombsight would use them to calculate TAS automatically). In any case, it pays to test both ways: one run with IAS and one with TAS inputs in the bombsight, just to be sure.

ATAG_Keller 08-03-2012 06:57 PM

Do we have any confirmation that adjustments have been made to the operation of the Lofte? I'd like to try a He-111 mission but don't know where to go with the settings; do it the old way or do it by the book?

6BL Bird-Dog 08-03-2012 07:02 PM

Plenty of wing left on that aircraft to give it lift on the port side. I doubt it flew like a brand new aircraft. If you tried to fight in that condition you'd have spun out like a top, but you should be able to land that aircraft with difficulty.

Nice popped tyres by the way ;)

Mattius 08-03-2012 07:46 PM

VERY Nice Beta Patch! FPS Better, Comms vastly improved, all planes called in to land responded & landed! No contact to leader was made though, so I just landed after everyone else. Amazed with performance on my LAPTOP!!!!:)

Don't forget ATI guys to delete your UBI splash screen file after verifying the game on Steam. It will reload it in there.

And turn off that epilepsy filter!

I'm pretty sure I've seen photos of aircraft near that state that were landed under control (or at least crash landed under control).

But then again, I've never flown a badly damaged hurricane in real life, so maybe you're right.

Looking forward to the patch. Thanks B6.

ATAG_Keller 08-03-2012 08:38 PM

I can pretty much confirm that the Lofte bombsight is working perfectly in the HE-111. I just finished a bombing run on ATAG and found the following.

-Bombsight altitude now displays the more accurate data.

Instead of,

4200m
4200m
4300m
4300m

in now reads,

4280m
4290m
4300m
4310m

-You need to convert IAS to TAS

-Crosshairs track perfectly

-Bombs fall behind the crosshair


I was too high to see the order of the bombs going off so I'm not sure if they're still exploding backwards. I was jumped by a fighter just before drop, and he either responded to my pleas to leave me alone until I got my bombs off, or my AI gunner hit him hard enough to scare him off. Either way, I was just so excited to see the Lofte working this well!

Dano's torrent link was very fast for me 2.mbs/sec....Cheers Dano. Seeding now (Virgin connection though with a 20mb download, but relatively slow upload).

I've set "bandwith allocation" to "unlimited" but I'm not a pro with these things and not sure how or if I can make it any faster. Suppose every little helps though.

jimbop 08-03-2012 08:51 PM

Keller, you say the bombs hit behind the crosshairs. Are they pretty close now? I.e. the altitude 'corrections' not necessary now? Travelling at the moment so can't test.

See my edited post for one :) I know I've seen more. I think a kittyhawk did the same in the pacific, coming back with massive damage to structure of the wing.

I don't count the modern aircraft photos (like the other one someone posted) since they've got all kinds of computery stuff to help with stabilzation.

Doesn't really matter. It may be that the aircraft in CloD are too controllable with that much wing off, but there should be a degree of damage that still allows you to control the aircraft reasonably (unable to dogfight or do anything else but struggle with it home).

Can't wait to start testing! Patch just finished dl'ing. Woo!

Looking forward to the patch. Thanks B6.

Edit: Quick search brought up this one.. http://www.topdesignmag.com/wp-conte...1_G.sized_.jpg

They managed to return to the fleet and crash landed there in this one.

AMAZING PATCH!!!

60 constant FPS! very fluid combat! bomber sights working!!!

I love you guys.

Dang I said I was going to wait until a final released patch through Steam, now you guys are really tempting me... I have yet to install any of these beta patches.
Nice to hear some positive words, I have been waiting for this before really delving into the sim.

This was 8 x 250kg bombs set with 0m delay.

Indicated airspeed was 270 km/h, Altitude 4210m.

Bombsight inputs were "True airspeed" 350 km/h and 4210m.

Since this target was right on the coast so I didn't deduct any altitude to allow for target elevation.


This image should explain it. Bombs also seem to stay closer together from high altitude; not as much natural spread.

Wow, thanks Keller (and 1C of course). That's exactly what I have been waiting for.

I am getting an error message when I extract the file.

"CRC failed in parts\bob\bob_update05.SFS. The file is corrupt"

I am using Winrar.


**Never mind all good now, I downloaded directly from a link in this thread. Previously I had downloaded the patch from Airwarfare, which was giving me the errors.

CTD is fixed when exiting a SP mission!
FPS is about the same.
